THE END OF A DISMAL LIFE! An inquiry has been held in London, relative to the Buicide of a Hindoo, whose name is unknown. The deceased for years past was continually to be seen about the City of London handing tracts to the passers-by in hopes of getting alms. Where he lived, or how, not even the police knew. It was supposed that he had no lodging, and that he used to sleep in stable-yards or under arches. He never said a word to any one either in English or Hin- dustani he contented himself with a salaam and an indiscribable grimace by way of thanks to whoever gave him a halfpenny for the sight ef his tracts. He appeared not to have a single acquaintance anywhere. His apparent age was 45 years. A fortnight ago he, no doubt, got tired of his dismal mode of life, and he Hang himself in the roadway before an omnibus. The hones, however, stepped over him, and the wheels of the omnibus passed en either side of his body, so that he was picked op quite uninjured. While walking down Bishopsgate Immediately after this Mlure in the attempt to commit suicide a woman, struck by his dis- consolate appearance, offered him some meat, which he (possibly from some religious scruples) refused. That was the last time—so far as can be ascertained—that anybody saw him alive. On Monday last, a man In the employ of a van proprietor, went Into a dark part of his master's stable to get a sack. When he put out his hand he felt the cold face of a corpse. He rushed out and gave an alarm. When as- sistance came the body of the deceased was found in a kneeling posture on the ground, a rope fastened around his neck and tied to a beam of the roof. There was no money or any other property found upon him. The Coroner said that the mystery of the deceased's existence and name would now never be disclosed. There was little doubt that he had committed suicide in despair at his folom condition, but there was no evidence of the fact. The Jury returned a verdiot of Found Dead from Hanging.
