Determined Suicide in Kentish Town.- On Saturday Dr. Lankester prosecuted an inquiry at the Victoria Tavern, Kentish Town, into the circumstances attending the suicide of a wood engraver, named John Robertson Cray, aged 33, living at 24, Clarence-road. The deceased's wife said that on Tuesday last, while on a visit to a neighbour, her husband sent to say that if she wished to see him again alive she must return home instantly. She at once hastened to her house, and there found him in an excited state of mind in his room, with a tumbler containing something in his hand. He told her that in a very few minutes she would be a widow. He directly rushed out of the room into another, and came back exclaiming, "It is done! it is done! She dashed the tumbler from his hand as quickly as she could, and he then said in a determined manner, I have done it! it is to late!" Before medical aid could be pro- cured he expired. Other evidence tended to show that deceased committed the act from despondency and the recent excessive use of ardent spirits. Mr. Caltcleugb, surgeon, of Clarence-road, deposed that the tumbler had contained cyanide of potassium, and that was the cause of death. The coroner deprecated the, present great facility for obtaining cyanide of potassium. Verdict, [ Suicide, whilst in an unsound state of mind."
