. Deaths from Sun-stroke, Apoplexy, and mc

postjre to the Great Heat.-On Saturday, nn in- quest was held at the Coroner's Office, before Mr. J. S. Parker, on view of the body of a man, whose name is ?unknown, who died in the Infirmary, about 7 o'clock on Friday evening. From tho evidence it appeared that deceased was observed in a sitting posture on the pavement, in front of the shop of Mr. Thompson, hay and corn dealer, corner of George and Bathurst streets, about 5 in the afternoon : that he was alive, but could not speak, and was breathing heavily ; by the advice of Dr. John Moore, of BathUrst-strcet (who was called to'see deceased), he was removed to the Infirmary, -where he received prompt attention, but expired soon after arrival. Dr. Moon' gave it as his opinion that death had resulted from coup-de-soleil, as he was for some time exposed to the rays of a burning Bun ; de- ceased had no appearance of having being hurt. He ?was a very stout man, about fourteen stone weight, and apparently forty years old, pock-pitted about the nose, high forehead, and dark hair ; had on an old black alpaca coat, dark tweed trousers, a blue cloth cap, a pair of new cossack boots, and a blue striped cotton shirt; there was nothing found on his person buta small memorandum book of 1857, and some glazier's tools. The jury returned a verdict of death from sun- stroke.-Another enquiry was held at Redfern, in the Redfern Hotel, on the same day, touching the death of John Paterson, aged 35, who arrived in the colony in May last, from Edinburgh, and was employed at the Botany Water Works. He was a married man, and remarkably healthy. On Friday morning deceased left home about five o'dook to go to his work, at .which time he «as in perfect health; his wife heard no more of him till half-paot 7 in tho evening, when a person called and stated that her husband was lying dead on the Botany Road ; she immediately ran to the place, bnt the body had, in the interim, been removed to a public-house close by ; when she saw his corpse, blood was flowing from the mouth. A fellow-workman deposed that deceased drank a pint of colonial ale about mid-day, after which he complained of being very unwell, said he must knock off, and left by himself to go home ; witness, when returning from work in the evening, along with a fellow-labourer, observed a man lying on his left side, face down- wards, .near to the Botany Toll Bar, and on turning him over, discovered who it was ; from the work at Botany, to the spot where the body of deceased was found, it might be two miles ; blood and froth were coming from the mouth, and one side of his head was quite black; it did not appear that deceased had had a struggle. Mr. J. C. Russell, of Chippen- dale, gave -it as his opinion, after examining the body, (upon which there were no marks of violence) that death was the result of apoplexy, brought on by the heat of the weather; deceased, being of a

stout, plethoric habit was, peculiarly liable to apo- J plexy. Verdict : death from apoplexy, induced by, exposure to the great heat of the sun.
