Fatal Effects of the Heat.
The intense heat of Saturday, June 30th, had a disastrous effect in N. York upon many poor laborers and others who were exposed to the sun's rays. A large number of persons were overcome by the heat, and up to Saturday afternoon ten deaths were reported at the offices of the Coroners. Among the sunstruck cases was that of James Gillen, a policeman, who after a few hours' suffering recovered. Coroners' inquests were held in the cases of—

Anthony Kohl, a German, about 52 years of age; Mary O'Brien, a native of Ireland; an unknown man who fell in Prince street, and died in about an hour; Elizabeth Ahern, a native of Ireland, aged 19; . . .
