FBOZEN TO DEATH.
This morning the dead body of a woman named Agnes Gamel, stiff and covered with snow, was found in the road channel close to the Newtown-bridge, Beechworth, by a youth named Andrew.
It appears from the evidence adduced at a magisterial inquiry held before Mr. W. Telford, J.P., that Mrs. Gamel, in company with a Mrs. Smith, visited Andrews' Hotel, Newtown, at about half-past 10 last night,
and asked for nobblers of brandy. Mr.Andrews, thinking that they had had enough,advised them to take ginger ale, which they did. Mrs. Gamel then left the hotel with the intention of going home, but took the wrong road, and crossed the bridge. She had not gone 100 yards away when she apparently fell,and, for some reason not explained, was unable to rise, and perished in the snow.
The inquiry was adjourned until tomorrow, to obtain medical evidence founded upon a post-mortem examination as to the cause of death.
