VIEWING BODIES AT CORONER'S INQUESTS. In reply to a Birmingham correspondent, who wrote condemning as barbarous the compulsory viewing of bodies at coroner's inquests, Mr. Bright writes as follows "House of Commons, June 25, 1883. Dear Sir,-I am disposed to agJee with you on the matter on which you have written to me. I will mention the subject to the Attorney-General. Perhaps in some bill affecting the office of coroner he may admit of the change you suggest.—I am, respectfully, JOHN BRIGHT." In replying to the same correspondent, Mr. Cham- berlain, without expressing any opinion on the custom, points to the enormous difficulties under which the Government labour in endeavouring to carry on the public business, and as their hands are quite full this session, and very slow progress has been made with the important Bills hardly introduced, he cannot hold out any hoped that other subjects than those already undertaken will be dealt with during the present session."
