        The other inquest: was on the body of Roderick Campbell, who, as the jurors found by their verdict, was "accidentally killed in consequence of being jerked from the pole of a certain bullock-dray whilst in motion, whereby he was so severely injured by the wheel of the same passing over his right thigh and arm, and that after lingering four or five days he expired." A son of the deceased proved the facts set forth in the verdict, and that his father was sixty-five years of age.
