FATAL CASES OF POISONING IN LIVERPOOL. —On Saturday some persons residing in Vauxhall- road, Liverpool, partook of some potted herrings, which had been bought at a shop in Chisenhall-street. Two of them, James Grady and thomas Callaghan, died the same day, after severe sufferings, and many other persons who had also eaten of the fish were seized with fearful pains in the stomach. An inquest was held on Monday on the bodies of the two deceased men. The dealer stated that the herrings were fresh and the vinegar good. Medical evidence showed that death was caused by inflammation of the stomach and uv/SrineS m some irritant, which was in all pro- bability either from the incipient putrefaction of the fish or from some irritating material used in pickling. A verdict was returned in accordance with the medical evidence.
