DEATH AT THE COUNTY PRISON. - On Thursday last, a prisoner in Maidstone Gaol, named Joseph Bowhill died from an attack of apoplexy. He was committed from the Greenwich Police Court, on the 19th September, for a term of three months', on a charge of stealing books. He had not been put to hard labour in consequence of the enfeebled state of his health. The gaol surgeon, Mr. Hoar, attributed his death to apoplexy, and at an inquest held on Thursday afternoon a verdict in accordance with his testimony was returned.
