INQUEST.— CAUTION TO PARENTS.—An inquest was held on the 21st instant, at the Fountain Inn, Twyn-yr-odyn, before Geo. Overton, Esq., coroner, on view of the body of Jane, the child of Thomas Davies, miner, aged one year and ten months, who died the preceding day, from injuries sustained on the 17th instant, from horses and trams hauling red iron ore up the tramroad. It appeared the mother went up stairs, when the child ran out, and in less than ten minutes the melancholy event of its being hurt took place. The jury returned the ver- dict of "acciclental death." No blame was attached to the haulier, who extricated the child from the road as soon as he discovered it. Considering the number of young children Tunning about the tramroads and streets, we are surprised so few accidents occur.
