Canterbury. Fatal Fall From a Scaffold.

On Friday evening for 27th ultimo, Mr. Coroner Delasaux held an inquest at the "Monastery Tavern," Longport, on the body of Edward Hadley, age 73, a builders labourer.

It appeared that, on the afternoon of the previous day, the deceased was standing on a ladder reared against a house and Castle Street, on which he was at work, and while in the act of reaching out for something on the building, the ladder slipped and fell to the ground, he falling with its.

He was picked up, bleeding from both ears and insensible, and was taken to the hospital where he died shortly after 5 o'clock.

The occurrence appeared to have been purely accidental, and the jury returned a verdict accordingly.
