ABERGAVENNY. FATAL ACCIDENT.—On Wednesday, the 27th ult., the lion of Mr. John Gobey, plasterer, of this town, aged thirteen, lost his life in consequence of a dreadful accident. The circum- stances of the case are as follow Mr. John Richards, of the Spitty Farm, near this town, left his horse at the livery sta- bles of Mr. Morgan, and desired the servant girl to tell one of Mr. Morgan's men to take it to the Angel Hotel; not one of them being present the girl went to the mother of the deceased, and asked her to allow her son to take the horse as ordered to which she consented. The poor boy unfortunately mounted, and on approaching the top of Frogmore-street, the animal became restive; the lad, unaccustomed to riding, ill his alarm, loosed the reiu and held by the saddle, at the same time trying to place his feet in the stirrups. His posi- tion becoming more perilous, he made an effort to save himself, by sliding off, in attempting which he met with a severe fall, which stunned him, the back of his head coming in contact with the pitching stones. The poor bov was instantly taken into Mr. Jones's, currier, in a state of' insensibility; where every attention was shown to him by Mr. Batt, surgeon but the unfortunate boy expired on the fallowing morning, at ten o'clock. On the next day (Friday) an inquest was held at the Angel, before Mr. Hughes, coroner, and a respectable jury, who returned a verdict of Accidental Death. On the Sunday afternoon, his remains were committed to the grave. The funeral was the largest we have seen in this town for some time. After the funeral had reached the Independent chapel, the Rev. H. J. Bunn, delivered a solemn and impres- sive address; the rev. gentleman spoke to the children of the Sunday school, m a very pathetic manner, on the uncer- tainty of life. Pointing to the corpse, he said, little did he think, so lately buoyant in spirits and full of joyous hope, when in school with you this day week, that a scene of this description would have this day occurred.
