A PAUPER’S DEATH—

The other day, a pauper, who was at work is the stone-breaking yard of the Woolwich Union, and who, it is said, had been ailing for five years, complained to his comrade that he was unable to do the heavy work which was required in return for the relief afforded to him. At length, he deliberately folded his coat, lay down, using the coat as a pillow, and, after one long breath expired. The body was afterwards placed on a stretcher and taken to the house in which his wife resided. The coroner was made acquainted with the case, but did not think it was necessary to hold any inquiry respecting it.
