Mr. George Cornick, late Assistant Superintendent of Police, died in the General Hospital on Wednesday, from the effects of a wound inflicted by himself during a temporary aberration of mind. The unfortunate deceased, a few days since, discharged a pistol at his head, with the intent of putting an end to his existance, but the ball taking a chance direction shot away part of the lower jaw, and he lingered in agony till his dissolution on Wednesday. Accumulated embarrasments, it is said, led to the commission of the fatal action. A Coroner's Inquest was held yesterday on the body, and a verdict returned that the deceased came by his death in consequence of a wound inflicted during a fit of mental derangement.
