A LADY ACCIDENTALLY POISONED. Mr. Wasbrough, the coroner for Bristol, held an in- quest on Saturday, on the body of Mrs. Goyder, a resi- dent of Clifton, whose death was occasioned by an overdose of Batley's solution of opium. The deceased, who was forty-five years of age, was the wife of Mr. Goyder, surveyor-general for South Australia, and for the past two years she had been staying at Clifton with her family for the benefit of her health. The com- plaint she was suffering from caused great weakness and sleeplessness, and she was recommended by a medical gentleman to take a few drops of Batley's sedative. She adopted his advice, and a couple of doses were administered to her by her sister, and from them she derived great benefit. On Thursday morn- ing, after passing a sleepless night, she took an over- dose of the mixture, and although every effort was made to restore her, she succumbed to the effects of the poison on Friday. The evidence entirely negatived the idea of suicide; and the iury returned a verdict of Died from an overdose of Batley's solution of opium taken by misadventure."
