Death from Fear of Hydroph.obia.An inquest was recently held at Manchester, on the body of a man named Robert Roberts. About six weeks ago the deceased was bitten in the hand by a Newfoundland dog. The wound bled a little, and was bathed in salt and water. The following morning the deceased said he was sure the dog was mad, and that he should die in six weeks He then went to a medical man, who applied caustic to the wound. On Friday last he became sick, and was taken to the in- firmary. At that time he was quite sensible, and said he felt strong enough to jump out of the window. When the deceased's face was washed he shuddered as the water touched him. He died on Tuesday morning. Mr. Walker, house surgeon of the infirmary, said he was of opinion that he had died from delirwim tremens. He Bwallowed some pills, but refused liquid. Witness was of opinion that there was a profound mental im- pression acting upon a weakened state. pehrvum tremens might be brought on by a severe tright or a nervous attack. He thought death was not caused by hydrophobia, but from a sort of delirium, produced by extreme fear of hydrophobic acting on his brain, some- what overbalanced by alcoholic sti-mulants.The jury returned a verdict in accordance with the medical evi- dence. Can an Apprentice become a Volunteer.— James William Ashwood, an engineer's apprentice, was charged at the Greenwich Police-court, by his master Mr. George England, with absenting himself from work without lawful excuse. It appeared that on Friday in last week, the day of the review of the different volunteer corps of Kent at Chatham, the de- fendant absented himself, as also on the following day, without having asked permission. When ques- tioned he offered as an excuse that he had been ill; but afterwards admitted that he had been to Chatham to the review. The defendant, in answer to the magistrate, said that he was a member of the 5th Kent Artillery Volunteer Corps, and that, having been furnished with a ticket to proceed to Chatham and take part in the review, he had done so, thinking he should not have obtained permission to leave his work bad he asked. Mr. Maude said it was altogether illegal for an apprentice to enlist into any volunteer corps without obtaining the sanction of his master. Mr England's son said no such sanction had been given by his father. The defendant bad been given the option of having his wages stopped or to appear before a magistrate, and, choosing the latter course, he had been brought to that court. Mr. Maude said the defendant, as an apprentice, had acted very wrongly, and ordered half a week's wages to be stopped.
