Fatal Accident
On Saturday last a private of the 14th, named Patrick MAHER was drowned opposite Mr BUXTON's house, between the Royal Hotel and Onepoto. He was intoxicated at the time; and having been refused more drink at the Victoria hotel or some other house, in hopes of getting supplied there. The water was very high, and the space for walking on being very narrow , as well as rough, he would appear to have missed his footing and fallen in. Miss BURTON saw the accident and ran to the spot, but the deceased was not again seen, having probably been at once swept away by the strength of the fresh. The body has not been recovered, and it is not likely to be, as it is supposed to have been carried out to sea. The deceased was a fine athletic man and a good soldier; nor was he by any means an habitual drunkard.

Inquest An inquest into the death of Patrick MAHER was held at the Victoria Hotel before Dr HITCHINGS, coroner, and a jury. The body was recognised by three soldiers of the 14th, with one of whom deceasedhad been drinking. Miss BURTON testified to having seen the deceased struggling in the water and to having run for assistance, but without avail. The jury (of whom Mt MUNN was foreman) returned a verdict of "accidentally drowned" and added the following rider:-- "The jury think it important taht Hyderabad raod should be made to prevent the recurrence of similar accidents".
