Dr. Watson, the borough coroner, held inquest at the Sun Inn, Cheap-street, Newbury, on Monday evening, on the body of a labourer named Thomaa Tegg, aged 48 years, who was killed at the Newbury goods station shortly before two o'clock on that day. 
The jury, whom Mr. Issac Hamblin was foreman, having viewed the body, the following evidence was taken:-
James Soper, a porter on the G.W.R., deposed that while they were engaged shunting at the goods station, the deceased came along leading a horse. The horse became restive and unmanageable, and if deceased had been a young man he might have got out of the way, but the horse pulled him round to the side of the wagons they were shunting, and in doing so, knocked deceased down in front of the heavily loaded cart whioh was drawing, and the wheel passed over him. They stopped the trucks as soon as possible, extricated the deceased, and sent for assistance. He was alive when they moved him, and cried "Oh, dear !'* "Oh, dear !" They placed him on a trolley and were going to take him to some place for attention, but soon found he had expired. He only lived about ten minutea after the accident. 
P.c. Gamble deposed that about two o'clock that day he received information of the death of the deceased. On his arrival at the goods station, accompanied by Supt. Bennett, be found the body lying on one of Pickfords vans. The man appeared be quite dead. There were bruises on the wrists, but witness did not examine the body. He conveyed the deceased to the Sun Inn. Deceased had been identified by his sister, Mrs. Grubb, living in the Old Newtown-road. 
The jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death.” 
Mr. Edgecumbe, the Newbury station master, was present at the enquiry on behalf of the railway company.
