LUNATIC ASYLUM TRAGEDY. Mr Bate, the West Cheshire coroner, held an inquest on Monday on the body of James Peacock, an elderly inmate Df the Cheshire County Lunatic Asylum. The evidence showed that deceased, who was suffering from paralysis. had occupied a single room near one of the dormitories on the 9th. An attendant, hearing the door shut, entered and found another inmate, named Prettyman, undressing and about to occupy Peacock's bed. Peacoct himself was not there. On the floor near ifae bed were blood' staius. Prettyman, when asked where Peacock was, said, "I have done foi him." Peacock, who could not have walked himself, was dis- covered in the lavatory, face downwards, with bruises on his forehead and noas, and he died on the 14th inst. from pneumonit. Dr. Lawrence, medical superintendent, said tho pneumonia might have been slightly accelerated by the in- juries, and it might have occmred without them. Prettyman had also since died from natural causes. The jury found that death was acce- 16rated by the injuries, and that there was not sufficient evidence to show how they were caused. They also unanimously found that there had been no negligence on the part ol the attendants of the Asylum.
