Well I never! It seems that the whole world is there! I couldn't have
imagined I would get a reply from Australia, New Zealand and America.
We
can surely have a party and maybe I could even make a pasty or two or
three.
The weather here in England is absolutely dreadful with floods and rain
nearly every day. We don't seem to have had a summer this year but we
are
still hoping and certainly need cheering up with a party or something.
I am
lucky not to be flooded but my heart goes out to the many who are.

wife of

van,
> she
> suddenly became faint, when about three miles from Truro, and fell
off,

the
> wheel of the van went over both her legs. She was [taken] in a very
> distressing condition to the County Infirmary, and on examination it
was
> found that there was a compound fracture of the right leg, and a great
> laceration, as to render, in the opinion of the surgeons present,
> immediate
> amputation necessary. There was a contusion on the left leg, and a
> puncture
> wound, from which there was considerable hemmorrage, but that leg is
doing
> well. There was also some injury on the right shoulder. The poor
woman
> passed a comfortable night, and she is now going on very well; she is
the
> mother of three children, and is now enceinte. On the same day, as a
> daughter of MR. THOMAS CLARK, of Trega..an, was returning home from
Truro

> CORONERS' INQUESTS - The following inquests have been taken before
JOSEPH
> HAMLEY, Esq., since our last report: On Friday at St. Minver, on the
body
> of a person unknown. Whilst the investigation was taking place five
more
> bodies were brought up in a cart, just picked up - they were washed
> ashore.
> Verdict Drowned by shipwreck.
>
> On the same day, an inquest was held at Poundstock, by Mr. GILBER
HAMLEY,
> deputy-coroner, on view of the body of BENJAMIN PEARCE, who was washed
> ashore at Mellook. The particulars of the wreck were given in last
week's
> paper. It appeared from the evidence of WILLIAM POTBURY, the captain
of
> the
> "Raven," that deceased was a native of Topsham. The captain, with
seven
> men
> and a boy, were sailing from Cardiff to London, with iron, during the
late
> storm. His vessel was driven on the rocks at Mellock about six in the
> evening, and during the night the sea was washing over her. The
captain
> stated that he asked several times if all was right, and was answered
in
> the
> affirmative. At daybreak he discovered that Benjamin Pearce and the
boy
> had
> been washed away during the storm. The body was picked up the
following
> day. Verdict, Drowned by shipwreck. The body of the boy has not yet
been
> picked up.
>
> On Monday, another inquest was held by Mr. Hamley, in the parish of
St.
> Austell, on the body of RICHARD ROWET, a child four months old. From
the
> evidence of the mother, it appeared that at eight in the morning she
left
> the child in the cradle by itself, to go to St. Austell, and desired
her
> neighbour to come in if he should cry. She never saw the child alive
> again.
> RICHARD ROWET, the father of the deceased, said when he came home the
> child was lying in the cradle, and here was a cat on his face. The
child
> was quite dead. Mr. VAUDREY, surgeon, was called in, and found the
child
> dead. He considered the child might have died from suffocation,
through
> the
> cat lying on him. Verdict accordingly.
>
> Another inquest was held before the same coroner, the following day,
at
> Launceston, on view of the body of JAMES PEARCE, who died in
consequence
> of
> his clothes catching fire. Verdict, Accidental death.
>
> The following inquests have been held before W. HICHENS, Esq., since
our
> last report: On the 29th, in the parish of St. Erth, on the body of
MARY
> TONKIN, aged 11 years, who caught her clothes on fire on the 28th
instant,
> and was so severely burnt that she died on the following day.
Verdict,
> Accidental death.
>
> On the 21st instant, in the parish of Illogan, on the body of WILLIAM
> JACKSON, aged about 46 years, who accidentally met his death on the
> preceding day, on the railway between Redruth and Hayle. The
deceased, it
> appears, was a laborer generally employed at the mines in the
> neighbourhood
> of the railway, in the discharge of coals and other goods brought to
the
> mines by that conveyance, and had been on the day of the accidental
> occurrence sent from Stray Park mine to North Roskear to discharge
tools.
> He usually walked, but somehow, upon on this occasion, he had a horse
> intrusted to him, on which he mounted, and was proceeding thereon on
the
> railway towards North Roskear. When first seen by the train he was
> considered to be distant therefrom about a quarter of a mile, and was
then
> riding by the side of the road, without the rails. The whistle was
> sounded
> to clear the way, and the train proceeded at the pace it was then
going,
> which was computed to be about 15 miles an hour. The train, of
course,
> speedily gained on the man and horse, and it was found that instead of
> getting out of the way, they had gotten on the road within the rails.
The
> whistle was, therefore, again sounded repeatedly, and the speed of the

> train
> was checked from, as was supposed, 15 to about 7 miles an hour, still
> expecting that the deceased would get out of the way; but most
> unaccountably
> he did not do so, and the latter speed of the train being continued
with
> that expectation, the engine at length came so close upon the horse on

> which
> the deceased was riding, that both were thrown down before the driver
of
> the
> engine had the power to stop the train altogether, and killed on the
spot.
> The deceased had both his feet cut off a little above the ankles, and
his
> head was also considerably injured. The driver of the steam carriage
> received an excellent character for steadiness and care, and the jury
> found
> a verdict of Accidental death, and a Deodand of one shilling on the
wheels
> of the tender.
>
> On the 23rd instant, in the parish of Crowan, on the body of SARAH
> HOCKING,
> aged 2 years and 3 months, who caught her clothes on fire on the 19th
> instant, during the absence of the mother from her house for two or
three
> minutes only, and died on the following day. Verdict, Accidental
death.
>
> On the same day, in the parish of Gunwalloe, on the body of JOHN
HODGE,
> aged
> 3 years and 7 months, who also caught his clothes on fire on the 20th
> instant, whilst his mother, who had gone to the furze rick close by to

> fetch
> some furze, was absent for a minute only, and died on the following
day.
> Verdict, Accidental death.
