An inquest was held on Thursday last, at the Horse and Jockey, Brimpton, before J. Alexander, esq. coroner, on view of the body of Albert Pocock, a boy in Kendrick's Newbury Charity School, who met with his death in a most melancholy manner, on Wednesday. 
He had a half-holiday, and was accompanying one of Mr. Lay's men, named Copas, on his return from Ashford-Hill, where he had been delivering coals with a cart. On reaching Hyde-End, Brimpton, Copas looked round and saw that the boy, who had been walking by the side of the cart, had just fallen under the wheel; the man had not time to pull up before the wheel had passed over and completely crushed the poor boy's head, who almost immediately expired. 
The jury, after hearing the evidence, which clearly showed that no legal blame could be attached to any one, returned a verdict of Accidental death.
