Dr. Youl held an inquest on Monday, at Carlton, on the body of John Guest, aged sixty-seven years, a news-agent. The deceased, in company with John Thompson, coal merchant, were driving in a tilbury along the Deep Creek-road on the 14th inst., when the horse stumbled and fell, and threw the deceased out of the buggy, the wheel passing over him. The occurrence, Mr. Thompson, who was driving, stated, was quite accidental. Dr. Fletcher stated that the deceased had been thrown from the vehicle as described. A verdict of accidental death was returned.
