A Child Overlain by its Mother.

An inquest was held at the White Horse Hotel, Parramatta, on the 5th instant, on the body of an infant named Donald Joseph Crouch, son of Mr. Charles Crouch, of Hunter-street, Parramatta.

The father of the child stated that he last saw the child alive at a quarter to 10 o'clock p.m. on the 4th inst. It was then lying on its mother's arm. About a quarter to 2 o'clock in the morning he was awakened by his wife calling to her mother who was sleeping in the next room. Witness's wife was sitting up in bed and pressing the child to her, and said "O, my baby's gone." Dr. Hart was at once called. Dr. Hart stated that he saw the child, it was very weakly and not at all well nourished, and in his opinion death resulted from asphyxia through being overlain. The jury returned a verdict accordingly.
