DEATH FROM HYDROPHOBIA. -- An inquest was held at Botley, near Oxford, on Tuesday, upon the body of a woman named ALDSWORTH, who died from hydrophobia.  Deceased was bitten on the thumb by a favourite dog on Christmas Day, and about a week ago complained of her inability to swallow.  Medical advice was taken, but nothing was said to the doctor about the dog-bite, and he treated the case as an ordinary throat affection till unmistakable signs of canine madness manifested themselves.  The dog died from the same disease about ten days since.
