Other Events in Castle Alley

Post by Karen on Tue 6 Sep 2011 - 22:56

Postscript.

There were registered last week in London 1,075 deaths, which is below the estimated average. Two widows died, one at 99, the other at 102 years old; the latter at Castle-alley, Whitechapel. The births were 1,816. The mean temperature was 1-3 deg. below the average; the mean dampness of the atmosphere, 85 hundredths of complete saturation. The wind blew W., N.W., and S.W.; there was no rain.
The return of births and deaths for the quarter just passed is published this morning. It was an unusually healthy quarter; the deaths in London were fewer by more than 3,000 than in the same quarter last year. This is in a great measure attributable to the temperature, which was, on the average, six degrees below the same quarter of 1859, and the consequent absence of epidemics. Deaths from pulmonary diseases, were, however, higher than usual. "From a review of the results of the quarter," says the Registrar-General, "it appears that a great portion, if not the whole, of the improvement in the public health, which is implied in a reduction of the total mortality, has fallen to children, and these chiefly of tender age."

Postscript.

In the week that ended on Saturday the deaths in London declined to 1,354, which is less than the estimated number by 112. There were 39 deaths from smallpox, 7 of which were at the Hospital, and 4 in Castle-alley, Whitechapel. The disease is on the increase. Measles and scarlatina are on the decline. There were 71 deaths from typhus. A widow died at the age of 92, and another at 96 years. The son of a brewer's servant died at 1, Elizabeth-place, Ratcliff, by "hemorrhage from a wound in the head, caused by a shell falling on him from the mantelpiece." (Inquest.) The coroner adds, in his report to the Registrar, that the mother has lost five children in this way, two of whom died in the London Hospital from a scratch in the hand. If they bleed but the smallest quantity they die. Dr. Arnold states that this is the consequence of a hemorrahagic diathesis. The births last week were 2,111. The mean temperature of the air in the week was 44.5 deg., which is as much as 6.6 deg. above the average of the same week in 43 years.

FATAL USE OF THE KNIFE.

At the Worship-street Police Court, Margaret Kelly, a strong little Irish woman, only eighteen years of age, described as a sack maker, was charged before Mr. Barker with the murder of Ann Sullivan. Catherine Ready, living at 25, Castle-alley, Spitalfields, said that about twelve o'clock on the night of Wednesday, the 14th instant, she was going up home with her sister, and on entering Castle-alley they met the prisoner. The latter advanced towards them and said that she would do for one of them, and then sprang upon witness's sister, Ann Sullivan. A short fight took place, when the prisoner got the deceased down and struck her on the head with some instrument which the witness thought was a penknife. Mr. Wallace Drew, one of the house surgeons of the London Hospital, said that he attended the injured woman on her admission to the hospital. She had a common lacerated scalp wound and a smaller wound over the eye. He did not think it necessary to detain her, and so supplied her with an outpatient's letter. Three days afterwards she returned, suffering from erysipelas and in a dangerous condition. She grew worse, and died in the hospital that morning. A remand was ordered, and the prisoner, who said the wound was caused by the deceased falling in the fight, was removed in custody.
