A Bad case of fatal poisoning from the, negligent handling of medicine 1 came under the observation of the coroner j-aslcrday. 31 r. James A. Kcnncrly, i young gentleman of about twenty-eight yearn, is tho de- j ceasod. Only a few davs ago ho was I liven following his profession a a member of tho engineer corps of the Iron Mountain railroad, and employed in the construction of the Arkansas branch of that line at Poplar I'luil", Butler county, Mo. On the evening of tho 2S(h iust. JUr. Kcnncrly felt a little indisposed, and reslovedto take some fluid extract oflmchu, which he had found hcnclicial in his disease, which was gravel. He went with a friend to the drug .store of G. T. llart Iet, at Poplar lilulf, and asked for the extract. Tho young man at the counter offered him a large bottle,' which ho declined taking. Jlo pur-' chased a small bottle, containing a dark fluid, labelled with the iiamo of the apothecary and the directions. On returning to his boarding house lie took one tea-spoonful of the liquid, and had supper. He was soon seized with a sensation ol' dizziness, a sting ing about tho throat, and a general numbness over his body. He grad-' ally growworc, and his associates became alarmed. A plrysimn was' sent for, but without being able to render any aid. It was the opinion I of tho medical attendant that Jlr.j, Kcnncrly, had been poisoned, and he frequently expressed that view. In two hours from the timo that the im-j fortunate gentleman had taken tho fluid poison ho was a corpse. His remains wcro conveyed from Poplar Bluff lo this city, and yesterday Cor onor Dudley investigated tho subject in his usual searching manner, at an inquest at tho office of Mr. Lynch, undertaker, on Olive street. The verdict of tho jury was that tho de ceased came to his death from tho oitccisoi anover-uose oi meuicino; j$Kr. 8.
