LLANWENOG. INQUEST. On the 26th ult, an inquest was held at Penpompren, before Thomas J. Hughes, Esq, coroner, on view of the body of Mary Lloyd, 63 years of age, innkeeper, who was found drowned in a small river called Grannell about 11 o'clock in the morning of the 24th ult. From the evidence adduced it seems that on the day in question, the deceased went out with two pitchers to fetch some water, and in about ten minutes was found drowned,the pitchers in the meantime floating down the stream. It is supposed that she fell headlong into the water, as there were some marks on her forehead, but in the absence of evidence the jury recorded a verdict of "Found drowned." The deceased was a person highly respected, and was well known for uprightness and integrity in the business which she had conducted for a long period at Penpompren.
