CARMARTHEN. INQUEST.—An inquest was held on the 5th inst., before George Thomas, jun., Esq., coroner, at Glanbrane, in the parish of Pen- bryri, in this county, on the body of a newly-born child, which it was suspected had not come to its end in a natural way. From the evidence, it appeared that the mother of the child was a woman of the name of Hannah Owens, who had frequently been charged with being enceinte, which she denied. On Saturday, the 1st inst., however, she was confined, when no person was present, of a full- grown child in a short time afterwards a woman who lived about four miles from the place in which the mother was at service, and where she was confined, was sent for, and on her arrival she found the child in a corner of the room, covered with an apron, quite dead. On questioning the mother, she said the child was born dead, and this, witness stated, from the experience she had had, she believed to be the case. Mr. Jas. Thomas, surgeon, Newcastle- Ernlyn, also examined the child, which was in an advanced state of decomposition, and applied the usual tests, and he had no doubt the child was not born alive, although it was full grown, and of the average size and weight. Under these circumstances the jury re- turned a verdict that the child was still-born.
