BUCKINGHAM

SUICIDE-On the 30th ult. a sensation was caused in the village of Tingewick, by a report that Mr. George Carpenter, a farmer of that place, had shot himself, which afterwards proved too true. From the evidence given before D.P. King, Esq., coroner, and the jury, it appeared that the unfortunate deceased was a man of eccentric habits, and frequently very desponding. On the morning of the tragical occurrence he received three letters applying for payment of debts; after reading them, he appeared more than usually low spirited; soon afterwards the report of fire-arms was heard, and on going in the direction of it, the deceased was found lying on his back with a pistol beside him; life was extinct. From the examination made by Dr. Clarke, it was apparent that the deceased destroyed himself by placing the muzzle of the pistol-loaded with powder only in his mouth. The Jury returned a verdict of "Temporary Insanity"
