The Late Fatal Duel at Gosport. THE VERDICT. PORTSMOUTH, Tuesday Night —Contrary to expectation, the inquest was brought to a close this evening. Ihere were only three witnesses examined subsequently to those whose evidence was dispatched at an earlier period of the evening, liie only additional evidence that was elicited from them was, that the place where the duel was fought was in the parish of Tiehfield, and not in that of Alverstoke, as alleged. When the examination of these witnesses had closed, the Coroner summed up the evidence, and at ten minutes past six, Jury ^hred to another room to consider their verdict. the jury, after having been absent about half an hour, re- turned into the Guildhall, and by their chairman, Mr. Grant, returnedithe following verdict:— We find that the immediate cause of Mr. Seton's death was the result of a surgical operation, rendered imperatively neces- sary by the imminent danger in which he was placed by the in- fliction of a gun-shot wound which he received on the 20th of May last, in a duel with Henry Charles Morehead Hawkey, of the Royal Marines. We, therefore, find the said Lieutenant Hawkey and Lieutenant Edward Pym, as well as all the parties concerned in the said duel, Guilty of WILFUL MURDER. The jury would further express their unanimous conviction that every thing which the best professional skill, the greatest attention, and the utmost kindness could suggest, was ren- dered to Mr. Seton by his respective medical attendants."
