An inquest was held, at the Navigation, on Thurs- day se'nnight, before W. Davies, Esq coroner, on view of the body of Maria Davies, a young girl, about 15 years of age, who was found in one of the locks, near the above place, about 7 o'clock that morning. James Piper, lock-keeper, deposed, that he was married to deceased's sister; that deceased, who had been living with her father and mother, near Troedyrhiew, came down to his house on a visit, the evening previous. She remained there about an hour, and then went out alone for the purpose of sleeping at her brother's house. Previous to deceased leaving the house, her sister offered her a candle to light her across the lock, fearing that she might fall into the Canal. This, however, she declined, saying she would not cross the lock; and wishing them good night, weRt away. That was the last time witness saw her alive. On the following morning, between six and seven o'clock, witness went to open the lock for a boat to pass through, when he saw a bonnet floating on the water, and picked it out. He did not, however, recognise it at the time; but upon taking it into his house, his wife immediately said it was her sister's bonnet. Witness then went to her brother's house to make inquiries, w..en he found that she had not been there, and he returned to the lock, where (the water being let out after the boat had passed down) the body of deceased was found. Verdict- Found drowned."
