 Mr. J. WEBSTER, Coroner for the Lordship of Egremont, held an inquest  at
the Bugle Horn Inn, Parton, on  Monday afternoon last, touching on the  death of
a child two months old, named John MYERS, the son of John MYERS, a  drayman
residing at Parton.

 From the evidence it appeared the child had been put to bed when its  
parents retired to rest about eleven o’clock on the 28th of October. At seven  o’
clock the next morning it was found dead underneath the bed clothes.

 A jury returned a verdict to the effect that the child had died of  
suffocation.
