The body was removed to a neighboring bouse, where Squire Hunter empannelled a jury, and held an inquest. Dr. Wright was called and performed toposia, extracting a portion of the lungs, suli tuitting them to the test termed by Medical wri ters, Docimasia pulmonum hydrortalica, proving conclusively that the little foundling had lived and breathed before it was committed to itn place of discovery. The jury rendered a verdict that it perished by exposure.
