        On Friday afternoon, about 3 o'clock, the mortal remains of the two young men, Howlett and Robertson, who lost their lives by charcoal poisoning, were conveyed to the Mount Barker Cemetery, followed by a large concourse of friends. Among those present at the grave were the father and brother of Robertson, the parents of Howlett, and all the employes of Mr. Jas. Ramsay, in whose employ the deceased Robertson had been for a short time. The Rev. Mr. Law, of Mount Barker, conducted the funeral service, and gave a most touching address. The two young men are laid side by side in the same grave. We understand Mr. Rundle, alike with the parents, felt keenly the sudden death of the two young men, for whom he had the highest respect. A correspondent furnishes us with the following particulars respecting the recent lamentable case of death by charcoal poisoning at Mount Barker:—" On Thursday, 24th inst., the Hon. J. Dunn, M.L.C., held an inquest upon the bodies of Daniel Robinson and Alfred Howlett. The former, aged 22, was a smith employed at the Mount Barker Foundry, and had only been here a few weeks ; the latter, aged 15, was ostler at the Gray's Inn. A respectable Jury of 13 was empanelled, of which Mr. W. Barker was chosen foreman, and the evidence proved that the deceased re- tired on Wednesday evening in good health and spirits, taking with them a stove in which was burning charcoal. This the lad Howlett was positively instructed to put outside, and he promised to do so. Robinson was also cautioned. However, they took no heed of either instruc- tions or warning, but closed the door, and the younger got into bed. The elder was, however, only partly undressed, and had evidently not been in bed, when both were unfortunately suffocated, in which state they were discovered by Host Rundle. The Jury then returned the following verdict :-That the deceased, Daniel Robinson and Alfred Howlett, died from in- haling the fumes of charcoal left by themselves burning in their bedroom. No blame attachable to any one."
