THE WORKHOUSE CEMETERY.

AN investigation was held on Saturday, according to adjournment, before the magistrates at Douglas Petty Sessions and an Assessor, upon information presented against Mr. George Carr, for having buried several thousand bodies at Monees, under such circumstances as to create a nuisance. A great deal of evidence was given as to the offensive and dangerous effluvia proceeding from the burial ground, which caused the road passing near to be deserted. After a consultation the Bench decided to receive informations in the case. Pressure of space excludes the report this day.
