DEATH OF MR. WEIPPERT.—An inquest was on Thursday held at the Castle Inn, East Moulsey, on the body of J. T. L. WEIPPERT, who met his death by furiously driving through Bushy Park, on Thursday evening, and coming in collision with another vehicle. It appeared that the accident was entirely attributable to the furious driving of the deceased, as the coachman of the other carriage (which contained three ladies and a youth) did all in his power to get out of the way. One of the witnesses stated, that deceased smelt strongly of wine. The ladies and the lad escaped with slight injuries, although they were all thrown to the ground with great violence. The deceased lingered from the night of the accident until Monday afternoon, in a state of insensibility. Verdict—" Accidental death."—Mr. WEIPPERT was the conductor of the celebrated quadrille band,—the pride of Almacks.
