Inquest.-On Saturday, an inquest was held at one of the inns, Macgrath's Hill, before Dr. Dowe, coroner, and a jury, on the body of Mr. John Alcorn, farmer here. It appeared from the evidence, that the day previous Mr. Alcorn had been indulging rather freely in intoxicating liquors ; was barefooted, and had by some means or other sustained a severe cut in one of his feet, probably falling down ; on going to sleep, he had, according to the medical testimony, bled so much that the jury returned a verdict of "died from hemorrhage, induced by the accidental cutting of one of deceased's feet." "The deceased was an old native of this district, the owner of a valuable farm at Macgrath's Hill, and has left a wife and numerous family surviving him.
