Coroner's Court. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 1 February 1851
Coroner's Court. An enquiry was yesterday held at the " Coopers Arms," Pyrmont, on the body of Samuel Blake, lately a waterman, residing in a floating hut in that locality. Evidence was given to show that the deceased had lived most intemperately, and recently had even exceeded his customary habits of inebriety. Charles Couchey deposed that he met the deceased on Tuesday, going home—then very drunk—had been drinking hard for a fort- night or three weeks—about midnight heard him retching violently, and on the following morning was called to witness him a corpse. About a month ago, Blake purchased some arsenic for the purpose, as he stated, of killing rats—he died possessed of no property beyond the hut before &nbsp; alluded to, and a boat—when first seen dead, de- ceased had all his clothes on. Sergeant Adams and another man, deposed as to the finding him dead in his bed—and Doctor Tierney stated that no marks of violence could be traced externally; but post mortem examinatio...

English ilactracta. O'CONNELL'S GRAVE-GLASNEVIN. (From the Cork Constitution.) The extensive burial-ground, about one mile from Dublin, remarkable as containing the re- mains of the late Daniel O'Connell, was visited by the Cork folks on the recent excursion to Dublin.
