SCPPOSID Mr ID KB or iWlfl by HSR H~S* band?A coroner's Inquest wu held this morning, at the shanty on the corner of Twelfth and C streets,in view of the body of Bridget Donovnn, a white married woman, of Irish birth ebout 3u years old. The evidence wan to the effect that deceased had (offered ill-treatment and abuse from her husband, Dennis Donovan, for a long time paat, and that he waa a very dissipated man Thev have lived in the ahanty where the body was found for abont two montha. It is the onestory building?No. 457?formerly a wood and coal office, situated on the northwest corner of Twelfth and C streets. There waa evidence of his having almost dally drank to excess since they lived there, also of his having beaten her on several occasions. Some of the witnesses testified she said to thein that she was Buffering from want, also that he had threatened to take her life, as- thfere was a young womap he could get who was worth 5400. Ponovan treated his wife very badly on Sunday last, and her sister (Mrs. Lee) came in the evening and induced her to go to her mother's. Yesterday she came to the house to get her things, when she found her husband drunk, with a number of men in the house. He refused to let her have her things, and there was some trouble, when she went to a magistrate's office to have him arfested As late as five o'clock In tfife fevsning she was seen as well and as hearty as ever in her life, and perfectly sober Aii hour or two later she and her husband were found In bed together. When attempts were made to awake her, between six and seven o'clock, it was found that she was dead, th& body being then cold and rigid, and the face and neck much discolored from a r parent coagulation of the blood. This discoloration had increased this miming. No marks of fresh wounds or bruises were fjund tipon the body. The verdict of the jury waa to the effee.t that deceased came to her death by continued ill treatment and abuse at the hands of her reputed husband, Dennis Donovan, \fcas a dissipated man, atid was in tlv? habit of beating and abusing her frequently; that liquor seemed to be the prlw*ary cause of their troubles; that there was evidence of her having come to her death by suffocation or strangulation; and that previous to her dea'h she was In want and deep distress.

Noah Wilson, who is charged with selling to the Government a cargo of coal for the full amount as recorded in his manifest, when a quantity bad been otherwise disposed of. was postponed yesterday by Justice Donn The presence of witnesses now with the flotilla on the Lower Potomac is necessary.

A new and desirable article which has long been needed to take the place of the common cork for Champagne, Porter, Ale, Cider, Ac., afrer the original cork is drawn. They prevent any loss of fixed air and keep the liquor In the same state as when first opened It be'ng air-tight, it is the only article suitable for Aolds, Aqua Ammonia, Smelling Salts, Indelible Ink, and a great variety of articles which are more or less volatile, and which destroy the common cork, but have no effect upon the Rubber The Rubber Stopp-r will not chip or break off as the common cork Is liable to, making it necessary to dig out the part left in the neck of the bottle or phial. Its toughness and tenacity obviates this objection to the common cork. They are prepared with the purest articles, imparting no smell or taste to the most delicate preparation, and may be relied upon by all Physicians and Surgeons. On the score of economy, it will take the place of all other corks and stoppers, as quantities of liquors of all kinds and medicines are obliged to be thrown away, having become stale and worthless, for the want of being tightly corked. They are also s perfect substitute for ground glass stoppers for druggists' bottles and phials, which often stick and are difficult to get out They are put up a dozen in a box of different sizes expressly for families, so that when any bottle of liquid is opened, the Rubber cofk should be used. They can be put up differently, assorted for Winesnd Liquor Stores, Beer Bottlers, Hotels, Club Rooms, Bar-rooms, Ac , Ac , of such sizes and quantities as may be wanted. They will be for sale at all the principal Druggist and Rubber Stores throughout the L'nlted States A company has been formed under ths title of the Goodyear India Rubber Cork Company, for the manufacture of the above article, under the exclusive license from Mr. Goodyear's Executors for the United States, and they intend to place them before the public at prices so reasonable that they will come into general use, and in a great measure supercede the common cork.
