Accident. The following discovery of a sovereign in an oyster occurred on Tuesday, in the house of Mr. Cable, the Queen's Head Tavern, Rotherhithe. The servant girl purchased two oysters from a woman named Field, and upon opening the shell of one, was surprised at seeing something black adhering to the fish; finding it a piece of coin she cleaned it, and to her great delight discovered it to be as good a sovereign as ever was cast. The matter was soon made known to the connoisseurs, and a minute examination of the dead oyster and its habitation took place. Upon one shell the figure of St. George and the Dragon was legibly impressed, and the belly of the fish had the reverse, the head, faintly impressed upon it. Oysters, at the ebb tide, always lay with the shell partly open.
