The. man who was found lying on the pavement in front of the Free Library on Friday evening last, and who was taken to the Hospital, died about one o'clock on Saturday morning. It appears that his name was John Hunter, and that he was a remittance man about thirty years of age. He had resided in Auckland for about eight years. About eight o'clock on Friday evening he was seen to slip and fall on the pavement in Wellesley-street by Mr. H. Triphook who was passing at the time. As he did not rise several persons went to his assistance, and as his head was bleeding he was carried to an adjacent chemist's shop. It was here seen that the injury was serious, and Sergeant Donovan accordingly procured a cab, and deceased was removed to the Hospital in charge of Constable Clifford. Dr. Collins found the skull fractured and an artery at ; the back of the ' head severed. Deceased succumbed to his injuries, as already stated, at about one o'clock on Saturday morning. He had been living at Mr. Brister'a ; boardinghouse in Wyndham-street. An inquest was held at the Hospital on Saturday afternoon, before Dr. Philson, when a verdict was returned that death had resulted from the fracture of the skull.
