MOLD. MOLD AND DENBIGH LINE.—The contract for the completion of this important line has been let to Messrs. Scott and Edwards, who intend commencing operations at once, and should the weather prove favourable it is intended to complete the line in time for the summer traffic-at the commencement of June. SUlclDE.-On Wednesday a respectable youth, named Henry Robert Jones, an apprentice with Mr Oliver Jones, draper, High-street, put an end to his life by hanging himself with a cord to a beam in the ware- house. Deceased, who was of a desponding disposition, had been in the Market Hall Assembly Room on the previous evening, when some disturbances took place between Dr Christie and Mr Parkinson, who had met to discuss religious topics, and was much affected by what was said, He, however, went to the shop at the usual time, and Mr Jones observed nothing unusual ill his manner during the morning. About twe:ve o'clock he was told by Mr J oneij to go to the warehouse to fetch a board he was away about twenty minutes, aud Mr Jones sent the servant to see where he was, who instantly returned stating Henry was ill. Mr Jones went to the warehouse and found him hanging to a beam, and quite dead. An inquest Was ln-ld at the Feather's Inn, the same evening, before Mr Peter Parry, and the Jury returned a verdict that deceased hung himself whilst in a temporary state of insanity. De. ceased's intimate friends state he had a habit of placing a handkerchief and sometimes cords and strings round his neck, aud pulling at them until he would get black iu the face the strange practice being dolle to produce a certtin sensttiou he felt under his ears. It is probable something of the kind was attempted on this day, with- out sufficient precaution, resulting in the sad end of taking away life.
