The Coroner's Jury which has carried on a long and

searching inquiry into the cause of the explosion in the Cymmer coal-pit, Glamorganshire, re- turned their verdict yesterday. Seventeen out of eighteen of the Jury were of opinion, " that the explosion in the old pit at Cymmer, which occurred on the 15th July, whereby Thomas Lewis and one hundred and thirteen other men lost their lives, was caused by the negligence of Jabez Thomas, the manager, Rowland Rowlands, the overman, and Morgan Rowlands, Da- vid Jones, and William Thomas, the firemen. They therefore find a verdict against those persons of manslaughter."
