FATALITY TO A ROOK-SHOOTING < PARTY. I The Carnarvon Herald states that an inquest took place, on Thursday in List week, at St. Asaph, on the i body of Mr. William Green, a native of Norwich, who was accidentally shot dead in Pengwam Wood (part of the domain of the Hon. Price Lloyd), on the 1 previous day. while shooting rooks with a party of ] friends from Liverpool. 1 It appeared that a number of gentlemen from Liver- i pool, friends of Mr. John Jones, of llhuddlan Foundry, weni; over to St. Asaph to enjoy a day's rook shooting f on the Pengwam estate. Amongst them were the ] deceased. William Green, and Messrs. C. Hampson, Moffat Walmsley, Ezra Williamson, and William Wood. The party had been shooting about three hours when Mr. Hampson broke th« nipple of his < gun, and on his remarking that his sport was done for the day, Mr. Williamson handed him Mr. < Waltnsley's gun, the latter having gone to lie down as he felt fatigued. Williamson handed the gun to j Hamilton from behind at full cock, and as tha latter took hold of it and swung it forward, it is supposed that the nipple caught in his shot belt or his coat tail, < for the gun immediately went off, and the charge struck j deceased, who was only three or four yards off, in the side, breaking through one of his lower ribs and tear- ing out part of the intestines. Notwithstanding the horrible nature of his wound the poor fellow lived for forty minutes after receiving it, and died just as two medical gentlemen, who had been sent for, came up. The verdict of the jury was "Death by an accidental discharge of fire-arms, with no blame to any person." The deceased was a fine young fellow, 26 years of age. He had been ten years in the aimy, from which he purchased himself recently, and had come down to Liverpool to see some friends, with whom he went over to Wales on this ill-fated tour of pleasure. To intensify the DftJuwB <.f hia fatf. it; is stated that he was to h .ve been married in a fortnight, the banns having been once published.
