From the evidence, it appeared that deceased had dissolved his partnership with a person named Firth, and that since then he had been very much depressed in spirits and had said he could not see his way through what he had in hand.

On Tuesday, he laid in bed until three o'clock in the afternoon, but in the evening he went out and looked after some business, returning home about seven o'clock, soon after which he had his supper and went to bed, apparently much better.

On the following morning, a little before five o'clock he got out of bed and went to the closet, where he was soon after found with his throat cut.

A surgeon was at once sent for, but the unfortunate man was quite dead, having nearly severed the windpipe. After hearing the evidence of Mr M. Williams, the deceased son and the policeman that was called in, the jury returned a verdict that deceased committed suicide whilst labouring under temporary insanity
