Article about Harriet being poisoned CASE OF POISONING AT WAGGA WAGGA.-We have, during the past week, been witnesses to a most melancholy and tragic occurrence, which has been a great shock to every one, and cast a gloom over this town. Two young girls, Miss Harriet and Miss Adelaide Warby, the daughters of Mrs. Byrnes, of the Hope Inn, have been suddenly cut off, in the midst of life and health. The eldest, aged sixteen years, was taken ill on Monday night, 20th ultimo, and died during the following night, having been delirious for nearly the whole of this time. Her sister, thirteen years of age was taken ill on Wednesday morning and only survived until the Friday morning, having suffered in a similar manner to her sister. A younger sister, a child of three years old, still remains in a precarious state. As these deaths had been so sudden without apparent cause for so violent a seizure, a magisterial enquiry was held on Friday, 3rd instant, by .T. G. Church, Esq., J.P., touching the death of Adelaide Warby, at which several witnesses deposed that they had seen deceased and other children with sorrel leaves in their hands; but no evidence could be found of their having been seen to eat them. Dr. Allen Morgan deposed that he had attended deceased and her sister, and had made a post mortem examination on the body of the deceased, that he had found a quantity of green vegetable matter in the stomach, which was much inflamed. The other parts of the body appeared to be perfectly healthy. In his opinion deceased came by her death from poison, how administered is still a mystery. From some suspicions circumstances arising out of private information received by our chief-constable, Mr. Mallyon, a woman, named Beremer has been taken into custody on a charge of administering poison to the deceased children, and stands remanded until the body of the other sister has been exhumed, and the con- tents of the stomach submitted to chemical annlysis. The sudden and painful affair has created great sensation in the neighbourhood, and the public await the result of the future investigation with the deepest interest.
