DEATH OF A GABOTTEF. Mr. Humphreys, one of the Middlesex coroners, recently held an inquest at the Green Gate, City-road, relative to the death of William Symons, aged 51, who expired through excitement upon being chased and apprehended after committing a garotte robbery in Finsbury-square. -i_ Elizabeth Symens, Kell-street, Dover-roarf, said that her husband was a dyer. He left home on Tuesday to sell something. He said that be was going over the water with a friend. He did not tell her the name of the friend. He never told her unless it was something particular. She heard since from a Mrs. Butler, who sells fruit in Finsbury Market, that her husband had got into trouble, and died. Thomas Hainan, 207 G, said that abont one o'clock on Wednesday morning he was on duty in Fins. bury Market, a man came up running, and apparently in a great fright. Witness said. Hallo, what is the matter ?" The man said, I have been stopped by some persons, and robbed." Witness pnt up his hands, and said, "Huah," for he heard footsteps. Then up come two men and a woman. When they caught sight of the police they separated and ran away. The robbed man said. "That man," pointing to the deceased, "is the one that searched my pockets with the woman." Witness thereupon ran down Market-street after tbe deceaaed, and succeeded in overtaking him. Ha langhed and said, What do you want with me ? Witness said, "I want you for robbing a man." Thedeoeased re- plied, Oh, it was not me. I know nothing about it. Just at that moment the other constable came up with the woman in custody, and the presecutoc also came up. The prosecutor said, He is the man. It was he that squared up and said, "Let the —— have it," while the other held me, and the woman and this man robbed me." The deceased seemed to be struck all of a heap by this, and he began to puff and blow. Witness said, What, is your wind gone bad? It was all right en on eh just now when you were running after this man." Witness took him along the City.road towards the station. On the way he reeled, and ultimately he fell. Witness got some men to assist him in carrying thedeoeased to the Worship-street station, where he died imme- diately on being carried in. No violence was offered him. Thomas Capes, the prosecutor, corroborated the constable's evidence. Mr. G. Yarrow, surgeon, said the post-mostem examination showed that there was a rupture of a vessel on the brain, and that the surface of the brain was covered with blood. The lungs were congested, otherwise the body was in a healthy btate. He attri- buted death to rupture of the vessel in the brain from excitement. The jury returned a verdict that Deceased died from effusion of blood i on ths brain from natural causes, and excitement."
