DEATHS IN THE STREETS.

On last evening, about five o’clock, Constable Cudmore found a poor man stretched dead in a field at the rerar of the gas house. The deceased was suspected to be from the neighbourhood of Mallow; and had been begging in Cork for a considerable time.

A child expired in the arms of its mother in the North Main Street about ten o’clock this morning.

A poor man died in Abbey-street at an early hour last evening, apparently after enduring hunger and other privations for a long time. A subscription was raised amongst the charitable persons of the neighbourhood to obtain a coffin for the deceased.

In all such cases the coroner has refused to hold any inquest, as their frequency at present would entail an immense expense on the citizens.
