SUDDEN DEATH OF A WOMAN AT THREAPWOOD.—An inquest was held by the coroner, Mr H. Churton, on Thursday, at a public-house, at Threapwood, having the singular sign of the Hi)ly Land, on the body of Elizabeth Powell, who had died suddenly. The deceased had been a dairymaid at Mr Gee's, Chorlton Hall, but it seems that about eight years ago she gave her heart if not her hand to an Irishman named Maide, and they lived happily together for about eight years. A week ago, however, the deceased was much affected during her sleep, probably by nigbmare, but recovered and was as well as usual up to Moutlay LiiSLit, when she went to bed at nine o'clock. At one the next morning Maide was disturbed by her making a noise in her throat, and fonnd she was insensible. In five minutes afterwards she expired. There was no reason to think that death occurred from other than natural causes, and the jury returned a verdict accordingly.
