LOWESTOFT DREADFUL EXPLOSION AT SEA On Saturday last, a most disastrous accident occurred on board the
Tonning steamer, Captain George RIVERS, from Denmark for Lowestoft, with cattle. On arriving about forty miles off coast,
nearing Winterton, she anchored to take a supply of fish from a smack, and on re-starting, and getting up steam, the boiler from

extra pressure, burst, and the following casualties took place. KILLED: -- James CUMMINGS, J. LANGLEY, J.SPOONER,
and 1 Danish cattleman. DANGEROUSLY WOUNDED:--J. WASP, first mate; J. F. REAY,sen., first engineer; E. PEAK; J.
HALL, picked up sixty yards off the vessel on a piece of wreck, arm scalded and bruised. BLOWN AWAY AND NOT

FOUND:-- J. F. REAY, jun., R. FAWCETT, W. AMISS, Passenger Boy, Richard BURR, --- ALDERMAN, and J.

ABSALOM, J.READ. George WILKINS, 2 firemen, and 2 cattlemen. Two smacks took the dead and wounded into Yarmouth;

one other smack came to Lowestoft for the company's tugs, but before they arrived, two tugs from Yarmouth had her in tow,
and brought her into Lowestoft Harbour, at 12 o'clock a.m. on Sunday. The most painful sensation was caused in Lowestoft to
know the fate of the crew, and thousands were assembled at the noon hour in the vicinity of the fish market, anxious to learn

all the particulars of so lamentable an accident.

BECCLES INQUEST--On Monday the 10th inst., an inquest was held at the Duke Inn, before B.L. GROSS, Esq., on the body

of Mary Anne, the wife of John TYRELL, tailor, of this place, aged 47, who died suddenly on Friday evening the 7th inst.
From the evidence it appeared that the deceased was of consumptive habits, and previous to her marriage, which event took
place only 12 weeks since, had an attack of hoemorrage [sic] on the lungs. On Friday evening she was in her usual state of

health, but upon retiring to rest was seized with a fit of coughing, and asked her husband to get her some water, as she began to
spit blood; and also requested him to fetch their next door neighbour, Mrs CAGIL. As he was complying with the latter
request, he heard deceased fall, and upon re-entering the chamber with Mrs CAGIL, he found she had fallen on the floor, and

was lying on her right side, and bleeding at the mouth. In about four minutes after this she expired. The jury returned a verdict,
"Died by the Visitation of God from natural causes."

WANGFORD ACCIDENT---On Tuesday evening, the 8th inst., a very sad accident occurred to Mr ROCKHILL, miller, of
Uggeshall, who in company with Mr CHURCHMAN, Mr EADE, and a lad, was returning in a horse and cart from Halesworth

market. It appears that when in the act of turning a corner in the road, at the cross way, near Westhall Hall, the right wheel
came in contact with a quantity of ice, which had floated thither with a current of water close by, and the cart being upset, the
several parties were thrown out; Mr ROCKHILL, we are sorry to add, being very much hurt. He was immediately conveyed

home, where Dr GIRDLESTONE of Wangford, was soon in attendance upon him, and although still suffering from the injuries
he received, hopes are entertained that he will ultimately recover. We believe the other parties escaped unhurt.

HALESWORTH FIRE---The inhabitants of Blythburgh were greatly alarmed on Thursday, the 7th inst., by a fire which broke

out about eleven o'clock in the forenoon, at the cottage of Robert BAXTER, laborer. It originated by a chimney becoming
overheated, and several pieces of burning soot escaping therefrom, and falling upon the premises of Robert ATTOE, dealer,
thereby setting fire to a haulm [sic] stack and shed, doing damage to the amount of about 20 Pounds. A great number of

persons were quickly on the spot, and used the utmost vigilance in procuring a plentiful supply of water, by means of which
the flames were soon extinguished. We hear that the farm house and buildings, occupied by Mr OSBORN, together with a hay
stack, belonging to Mr FREEMAN, had a narrow escape.

YARMOUTH CAUTION TO TRADESMEN ---- On Monday evening, Mr R.D. FOWLER, draper of the Market-place, had
several packages of goods lying outside his shop door, and whilst his assistants were taking them in, two of the most portable

were stolen. Each parcel contained goods to the value of about 5 Pounds. One of them was traced down an adjoining row to a
house of ill-fame, and found secreted in a privy, but the other has not yet been discovered. The thieves have escaped for the
time. We regret the loss which Mr FOWLER has sustained, but we certainly think it is a bad habit into which many of our

traders have fallen of allowing their goods to remain outside their doors so long, and frequently after dark. The Ishmaelites of
our streets and distressed poor, moreover, should not be unnecessarily tempted by the thrusting of unguarded portable goods in
their way.

YARMOUTH THUNDERSTORM--ACCIDENT--A short but very heavy thunderstorm visited this neighbourhood on
Monday, 9th inst. For some minutes in South-town the lightning literally blazed, and was succeeded by sharp close sounding

cracks of thunder. Several trees in that locality were scorched by the blue flame of lightning, and near the house of Mr
FELLOWS, a hole was struct [sic] in the top of the wall and the bricks in the sides were cracked at several places downwards.
At the foot of the wall the fork of fire, which was seen to drop there, disappeared, leaving behind it a hole which for some time

smelled like the muzzle of a newly discharged gun. At the same time the wall (and other objects in the neighbourhood) was
struck, a married man named George BLAND, a fisherman, aged 26, living at the North End, and a boy named George

MANTRIP, aged 16, of Gorleston, who were standing near Mr FELLOWS' wall, were struck by the electric fluid and both
knocked down insensible. In a short time they were picked up and taken to hospital in a cart. On arriving there it was found

that the lightning struck the man at the back of the neck and passed down to his feet, burning his flannel and drawers to tinder,
and very deeply scorching his body. His clothes, on being taken off, fell to pieces, and smelt extremely strong of sulphur. It is

doubtful whether he will recover. The lightning struck the boy on the left shoulder, and passed across the front of his body,
severely burning his groin and both of his feet, but it is expected he will recover. On being received into the hospital, both
sufferers received prompt treatment from Mr COLLY, the House Surgeon. So strongly did the clothing of the patients smell of

sulphur that for a time it impregnated the whole building.

SOUTHWOLD ACCIDENTS---On Monday afternoon a sad accident occurred in the fair. A young woman of the name of
Maria BIRD, living at service in Stoven, met with a very serious fall from a swinging boat, causing concussion of the brain and
many severe bruises on the face and body, her life was in jeopardy for very many hours, but there is now reason to anticipate

her ultimate recovery. F. H. VIRTUE, Esq., was quickly in attendance upon the young woman and the case remains in his
hands. The cause of her falling out, from general report, arose from her moving to another seat to avoid the indecent attacks
made upon her by a young man, whose name is known, and who will on her recovery be proceeded against for his disgraceful

conduct ; much excitement exists upon these painful circumstances.

LOWESTOFT POLICE COURT Held on Wednesday, the 16th July, before Charles STEWARD, Esq., R.C. FOWLER, Esq.,

H.S. WADDINGTON, Esq., the Rev R.C. DENNY, and Major LEATHES. Ale House Offence James BROWN, of
Blundeston, a beer house keeper, was charged with keeping his house open during the hours of divine service, on Sunday, the
29th June, contrary to the form of the statute. Arthur AMISS, of Lound, said that about 2 o'clock on the day in question, in

company with others, he went to the defendant's house, and remained there till between five and six. There were other men
besides himself, they were drinking all that time, and were the worse for drink when they left the house. The Chairman
addressing the defendant, said he was surprised when he saw him come into the room, as he had known him a great many

years, as a respectable man, but they could not overlook the thing. It was bad when the house was kept open only a few
minutes after divine service, but in this instance, the house was kept open an hour before and an hour after divine service, and
the parties left the house the worse for drink. He was fined 2 Pounds including costs. The money was paid.

BUNGAY A BAZAAR for the reduction of the debt upon the Wesleyan Chapel was held in the Corn Hall, on Tuesday, the
22nd July. The day being fine a large number of visitors arrived; the hall which was very tastefully decorated with evergreens,
flowers, mottoes, flags, etc, by Messrs STOLLERY, BALLS, AND COCKS, was opened at 11 o'clock a.m. The stalls,

extending on each side of the hall, were presided over by Mrs and Miss SADD, Mrs and Miss STOLLERY, Miss MITCHELL,
and Miss BLOOMFIELD, who were very energetic in their endeavours to lighten the purses of the visitors, and we are pleased
to state their efforts were successful. A refreshment stall was placed across the bottom of the hall, which gave constant

employment to Mrs G. COCKS, Mrs DELF, Mr George CANNELL, and Mrs F. STOLLERY; while in the opposite corners
were the penny portrait gallery and the post office; an harmonium was played at intervals by Mr W. WALESBY. We also

noticed Mr A. BOATWRIGHT with his photographic Cameras, and have since seen some well executed stereoscopic views of
the hall and its contents during the sale; they are doubtless deserving of great praise. Sermons of a useful and earnest character

were preached in the chapel by A. CHAMERLAIN, Esq., from Wroxham, in the afternoon; and by the Rev B. RIDSDALE,
from Lowestoft, in the evening; after which the congregation returned to the Hall, where they remained until 10 o'clock. A

committee meeting was held on Friday evening, when the accounts were audited, and a balance of just 50 Pounds was
declared.

Were held on Friday 5th August, before the Mayor, S. Wilton RIX, Esq., (in the chair) the Revs R.C DENNY and J.C.
SAFFORD, and the Deputy Mayor.

Frederick PIPER, pipemaker, was charged with trespassing on the Great Eastern Railway, at Beccles, on the 12th July.
Benjamin AYDEN of Beccles: on Tuesday the 12th July, I saw Frederick PIPER walking on the Railway, between the Black
Boy Street, and the Ingate Road crossings; he was walking in the four foot way in front of the down train from Ipswich to

Beccles, about half-past eight. I asked him what he was there for, and requested him to leave. He refused to do so. Defendant
had no right to be there. It is part of my duty to keep people off the line. Charles FARMAN: I am gate-keeper of the Ingate
Street crossing, of the Great Eastern Railway, at Beccles. I have repeatedly cautioned defendant against trespassing on the

Railway. The Mayor said the bench was quite agreed that it was absolutely necessary to put a stop to this most dangerous
practice of walking on the railway. The present offence was aggravated by the facts that the accused had often been warned,
without effect, was abusive to the officer, and had absented himself when summoned. Frederick PIPER must pay forthwith a

fine of 20 Shillings, with 9 Shillings and 6 Pence costs, or be imprisoned for six weeks.

SOUTHWOLD Sudden Death.---An inquest was held at the Swan Inn before W.B. ROSS, Esq., deputy coroner, on the 6th

draper, Southwold. Deceased had an egg and a cup of coffee for her supper, and went to bed about nine o'clock in very good

health with her sister. About three o'clock on the morning of Thursday, the 2nd March, the deceased called out to Miss RIX, a
young person who waits in the shop, and said she felt sick. The deceased got up and was sick. There was no light in the room.
The deceased was not out of bed more than five or ten minutes, and she went to sleep again till 5 o'clock, when she was heard

to make a noise in her throat. The deceased got out of bed and was sick again, and apparently went to sleep again. About 7
o'clock she seemed to be unconscious, she did not speak in answer to her sister, but merely stared. Mr Thomas FULLER, a

relation, was sent for. He advised Mr DENNY to send for a doctor. In the evening, while getting supper, the deceased said that
she had eaten a quantity of sweetmeats. When in bed the deceased complained several times of sickness and of headache. The

deceased had been into Mr FULLER's shop that day (Thursday), and had purchased two ounces of sugared almonds, and two
ounces of acidulated pear drops, which were quite wholesome. Dr BLACKETT, of Southwold, attended the deceased , who

was all but dead when he arrived, and died a few moments after. He made a post mortem examination, and found everything
healthy, with the exception of the membrane of the brain, which was excessively congested. He was certain there was no
poisonous matter in the sweets; if there had been, he would have found it, but he found none.---The Jury returned a verdict of

"Natural Death."

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ...Considerable excitement has been caused at Brandeston and its neighbourhood by the
refusal to bury a Dissenter, because he was unbaptised, a young man, named Allen MAYHEW, 23 years of age, a member of
the Independent Chapel in the above place. He was born, and had lived until last autumn, in the adjoining village of

Kettleburgh, and his friends wishing to bury him in the parish where he had lived so long, made application to the Rector for
that purpose, when they were very politely informed that they could have a grave dug, but that he could perform no kind of
service, the laws of the Church not permitting him to bury any unbaptised person. This is the first time in the memory of the

oldest inhabitant such a refusal has been given, and as may be supposed the event has caused no little surprise and indignation.
On Tuesday last, therefore, the corpse was carried to the Independent Chapel, where a funeral service was performed by the
minister, the Rev T.S. KING. The body was then taken to the churchyard, and at once lowered into the grave. The mourners

and spectators (of which there was a considerable number), assembled to witness this strange scene, then retired to an
adjoining meadow, where an address was given and prayer offered by Mr KING.

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS .... An inquest was held at Butley, on Wednesday last, before C.C. BROOKE, Esq., coroner,
on the body of Joseph GOWEN, laborer, aged eight years. It appears that the deceased was employed to frighten birds off a
corn field of Mr WEBB's, and was last seen alive on Monday afternoon, about half-past four o'clock. About quarter-past five

Mrs CROSBY was taking some chips from her yard to her house, and saw deceased lying on the ground on the other side of
the field ; he was lying flat on his face, with his head resting on one of his arms. She thought he was asleep, but as deceased
had not moved for about three- quarters of an hour, she sent her little boy to wake him up. He came back and said he could not

wake him.She sent him back again to shake deceased, and he returned and said there was stuff running from his mouth. Mrs
MALSTER, who was at Mrs CROSBY's house, went across and lifted him up; when she found he was dead. There was a little
froth issuing from his mouth and nose. From the appearance of the ground he seemed to have fallen and died without a

struggle. Mr W.W. KETT, of Hollesley, surgeon, having given his opinion that deceased died from apoplexy brought on by the
rupture of a vessel in his head, the jury returned a verdict accordingly.

LOWESTOFT The Approaching Season We understand that the Great Eastern Railway Company are in treaty with two bands
for the South Pier, each to play three days in a week during the season. Visitors have been arriving amongst us almost daily for
some weeks past, which has brought out the basket phaetons, donkeys, etc Amongst the new objects for visitors to inspect will

be the new Fish Market, which is approaching completion and will be double the size of its predecessor. The "mount" or "look-
out tower" has been removed to the east end of the building. The South Pier has undergone a thorough piling and repair, and
the addition of "ledges" has been made to the posts, rails and cross-pieces placed on the harbor [sic] side of the pier last year,

so that mamas will now be under no apprehension of their little ones falling into the water. But whether it will be considered an
improvement in appearance, we know not; it reminds one of a continuous row of five-barred gates; they will, however, be
useful. And then, there will the new iron lighthouse, which is about to be erected on Ness Point, for the guidance of the

mariners from the dangerous sands off the coast, in lieu of the present low light, which, from the shifting of the sands, has
become useless, or perhaps worse. We are sorry to see it stated under the authority of the Trinity Board, the inner edge of the

Newcombe Sand has washed bodily in during the past winter, necessitating various alterations in the positions of some of the
buoys. These, well observed by our mariners, will prevent, we trust, the excitement which the spectacle of a vessel on the sand,

and the lifeboat proceeding to the rescue, would cause among the visitors expectant [sic].

THE PETTY SESSIONS
Held on Thursday before J.L. BEDINGFIELD, Esq., and Major MARGITSON. Assault Upon A Dairy-Maid At Bungay

Elizabeth COATES, of Flixton, was charged with having at Flixton on the 24th May last unlawfully assaulted and beaten
Harriet WALNE, servant. As Mrs COATES did not appear, Inspector MAY proved the service of the summons. The
complainant said Mr BEAUMONT, the father of the defendant, came to her at her father's house yesterday, and brought with

him a paper on which she saw Mrs COATES' name written, and asked her to sign it, which she did. The Inspector said that
when he served the summons, Mrs COATES admitted that she struck the complainant, and said that she was sorry that she had
done so. The Bench decided to hear the case in the absence of the defendant. Harriet WALNE said, I live in Mr BEAUMONT's

service as dairy-maid, and Mrs COATES, his daughter, is his house-keeper. I was setting up my milk between eight and nine
o'clock on the morning of the 24th May, when defendant came to me and complained of my being slow. I replied that I was
going as fast as I could; she then called me a fool, and I said "Not a greater fool than many other people;" upon which she

desired me to beg her pardon. I said, "I have neither said nor done anything to beg your pardon for;" she then struck me in the
face and hurt me very much. I told her I should not remain any longer in the service, and demanded my wages, which she
refused to pay, and I then left without receiving them. The Bench convicted the defendant, who was fined 7 Shillings and 6

Pence and 10 Shillings and 6 Pence costs, or in default seven days imprisonment.

BECCLES The PETTY SESSIONS

Were held on Friday last, before the Mayor, (in the chair), and Dr CROWFOOT. William ARNOLD, veterinary surgeon, of
Beccles, was summoned for neglecting to pay a poor rate of 6 Shillings and 8 Pence. It appeared from the evidence of Mr
LOVE, assistant overseer, that the defendant hires [sic] a house in the New Market, and that previous to the last quarter he had

been rated at 4 Shillings and 6 Pence instead of 6 Shillings and 8 Pence, on account of his indigent circumstances; but in
consequence of the shop having been let during the latter part of the last quarter, and occupied by himself and family at the
beginning, the rate had been raised to the proper amount of 6 Shillings and 8 Pence, which the defendant refused to pay,

contending that the shop had not been used for any profitable occupation. The Bench ordered the payment of the 6 Shillings
and 8 Pence, and costs, and as defendant was unable to pay a distress was issued upon his goods.

AMHURST. of Didlington-park, and Emily BAYES, a well-dressed woman, alleged to be his wife, were charged before the

magistrates, at Swaffham, with breaking into Didlington Hall and stealing a cash box containing 110 Pounds. William FORD,
butler to Mr AMHURST, said that the prisoner had been discharged on suspicion of having committed a petty theft. He knew

where the key of the butler's office, in which the cash-box had been kept, was generally put, and also a window was always
kept open during the summer at the back of the house, by which entrance could be obtained into the interior. The prisoner had

gone to London, but two witnesses stated that on the night of the robbery they had seen him near Didlington Hall.Suspicion
consequently fell on him, and he was apprehended in London. A bundle of bank-notes was found in a house where the female
prisoner had been, and was handed to the police. The prisoner made a statement, in which he said he had gone to Norfolk to

visit his father. While there he got drunk, and instead of visiting his friends he went into Didlington Hall, by the open window
at the back, opened the door of the butler's office with the key, which he found in its usual place, broke open the cupboard, and
took the cash box. He told his wife that his father had given him the money, and she knew nothing of the robbery. BAYES was

fully committed for trial at Norwich Assizes, and the woman was remanded to ascertain if she was married. If she is she will be
discharged.

LOWESTOFT Melancholy Accident --- On Monday 14th August, an inquest was held at the Suffolk Hotel, before F.B.
MARRIOTT, Esq., coroner, on the body of George BUDDS, aged about 37, who was drowned in the harbour on the previous

morning, about three o'clock. From the evidence of Henry BRISTOW, a bridgeman employed on the Lowestoft bridge by the
Great Eastern Railway Company, it appeared that deceased had been in the employ of the Company about eleven weeks, and it
was their turn to be on duty on Saturday night. BRISTOW took the first watch, from 8 to 1 o'clock, when he left the deceased

standing in the centre of the bridge. He then went in to the little house which is close to the harbour, and about 10 minutes to 3
o'clock he heard the deceased call out, and he saw that he was in the water. He immediately ran to his assistance, and threw in
a line, and called out to deceased, "Hold on here." Deceased asked him to pull him out, which he could not do, neither did he

attempt to do so, but made the rope fast, and ran towards the Custom-house for assistance. He met William BROWN,
belonging to the Custom-house, and he, with George JARY and Robert WELHAM, came and tried to haul the man ashore.
They could not, and BROWN said that they had better go to the man in a boat, which he (BRISTOW) and BROWN did. He

believed the deceased must have hold of the rope, or it must have got fastened somewhere, because the four could not haul it
in. When they got to the deceased they found him floating on the water, and he (BRISTOW), tied the rope around the
deceased's shoulders and he was hauled ashore. When he saw him first, he was about a fathom from the side of the Quay, and

directly he was landed, he (BRISTOW) went for Mr CLUBBE, the doctor, who was in attendance about fifteen minutes
later.The deceased was taken to the Watch-house. Deceased was probably passing the end of the railings, which were shown to
the Jury, and which the bridgemen are in the habit of passing, when he fell into the water. Mary Ann WELHAM, who lives at

the Watch-house, corroborated the evidence of the last witness as to the time of the deceased falling into the water, and the
assistance rendered by the men to the deceased; and William BROWN, George JARY, and Robert WELHAM also gave
corroborative evidence. The latter witness stated that after BRISTOW and BROWN had gone off in the boat, the rope became

slack, and heard deceased say, "Oh, dear, Oh!" He (witness) then used the boathook, which was lying over the edge of the
Quay, and he must have got hold of the deceased, for he felt a great weight on the hook, but what part he had hold of he could
not tell, as it was dark. Captain RIVERS, harbour master, gave evidence as to his being called up. He and Mr CLUBBE tried

all they possibly could for upwards of an hour, to restore respiration, but without success. Some conversation took place in
respect to the desirability of the men employed at the bridge making themselves fully acquainted with the rules supplied by the
Humane Society for the restoration of apparently drowned people, and the coroner considered that it was just as necessary for

them to know the rules, and be enabled to act up to them, as the coastguard men. Captain RIVERS said he would from this
time make it a point that his men should have the rules read over to them two or three times a week, so that they might be
impressed on their memory, for he saw the importance of it; and he also stated that he would cause a gate to be placed as a

protection to the spot where the deceased fell in. The jury returned a verdict of "Accidental Death." Deceased has left a widow
and six children, the youngest but six weeks old.

BUNGAY PETTY SESSIONS
Before J.L. BEDINGFIELD, Esq., Chairman, Rev J.C. SAFFORD, and Richard MANN, Esq. Offence Under The Highway
Act Mr John SALTER, of St Andrew's, farmer, was summoned by police constable KEMP for having 71 sheep straying and

lying upon the highway in St Andrew's, Ilketshall, on the 17th August. The offence having been proved by KEMP, Mr
SALTER said he did not dispute the fact that the sheep were his, but the information was laid by KEMP from spite, as he
(SALTER) had charged him with drunkenness. He said he had, in common with other occupiers in the parish, the right of

turning a certain quantity of stock on the common, but as there was no gates, the stock would sometimes stray upon the road.
Upon the day in question, he had a boy in charge of the sheep, but as it came on to rain, he had left the sheep to come home
alone. As soon as he found this was the case, he sent another boy after them, but Mr KEMP had in the meantime taken them

away, and placed them in Mr HARDINGHAM's field. KEMP denied that in bringing this case before the bench he had been
actuated by any other motive than a sense of duty. The bench convicted Mr SALTER, who was adjudged to pay a fine of 5
Shillings, and costs 5 Shillings; and the Chairman said the Bench were of opinion that KEMP had not laid the information

from the motive named by Mr SALTER, as all the police officers in the district were instructed to take notice of cases such as
the one they had just decided.

BECCLES PETTY SESSIONS
Friday---Before J.F. VINCENT, Esq., (chairman), the Rev R.C. DENNY, the Mayor, and Dr CROWFOOT. Aggravated
Assault.---John REYNOLDS, waterman, of Beccles, was charged with assaulting Harriet SEYMOUR, wife of William

SEYMOUR, hawker, on the 2nd September. Mr KENT appeared for the defendant. William SEYMOUR, deposed: I am a
licensed hawker, and at present reside at Beccles. On Saturday last I and my wife went to Lowestoft. We returned to Beccles

about half past eleven the same night. I took my horse to the Cross Keys to put it up while my wife went to the "Pickerel,"
where we lodge. After I had put up my horse at the Cross Keys, I also went to the "Pickerel." When I got into the house I saw

REYNOLDS and his wife there. He asked me how I was, and I said "quite well, I thank you." He then asked me why I did not
pay the old man, meaning the landlord of the house. I asked him what business that was of his. My wife came in the room just

then, and Reynolds got up from the chair on which he was sitting as if to rush at her, and she slapped him in the face. He then
rushed at her, and knocked her down and jumped on her body. Some persons then came and took him away. My wife was not
able to get upstairs alone afterwards. I helped her get up, and a woman named BIRD assisted her into bed, which she was

unable to leave until Tuesday afternoon, on account of the injuries she received. Cross-examined by Mr KENT: I always use
my wife well. She is my lawful wife. I struck her about a fortnight ago, and gave her a black eye. The bruises on her legs and
arms were caused by REYNOLDS. I will swear that the bruises on my wife's limbs were not shown to persons a fortnight ago

by her. I did not throw my wife out of the cart coming from Lowestoft, nor did she fall out. My wife arrived at the "Pickerel"
before I did. Mr CLARKE the landlord of the "Pickerel" has been witness to several rows between my wife and me. We have
been staying at the "Pickerel" some time and have paid our rent. Mr CLARKE has wished us to leave his house, for what

reason I do not know. I have not asked the defendant to compromise the case. Both myself and my wife were quite sober at the
time of the occurrence.The surgeon who came to see my wife did not tell her that there was nothing the matter with her but
drunkenness. Sarah BIRD said: I am a licensed hawker, and live at present at the "Pickerel." I was not present at the time of the

alleged assault. I assisted to put Mrs SEYMOUR to bed on Saturday night, and was present when the surgeon came to see her
on Sunday morning. The woman's body was very much bruised about the legs and arms.She was in great pain whilst I was in
the room. I could not say when the bruises were made. Harriet SEYMOUR deposed: I am the wife of William SEYMOUR,

licensed hawker. On Saturday the 2nd August, I went to Lowestoft with my husband; we did not return until very late at night.
My husband went to the Cross Keys to put up his horse, and I went to the "Pickerel," stopping at a grocer's shop to buy some
things on the way. I went into the parlour and feeling very faint, asked Mrs CLARKE, the landlady for a glass of water. I

afterwards went to the kitchen; REYNOLDS, his wife, and my husband were there. I heard REYNOLDS say to my husband,
"Why don't you pay the old man?" I asked him how he dared to insult my husband. He rose from the seat as if to strike me, but

his wife put her arm between us, and I struck him on the face. He then rushed at me, and caught me by the hair of my head, and
threw me down, falling on top of me. He was taken off, but ran at me again and jumped on my body. I was picked up by my

husband, and whilst he was supporting me, defendant rushed at me again and tore my dress off. The garment now produced is
the one I had on at the time; I was afterwards taken upstairs and assisted to bed. A surgeon came and saw me in the morning; I

have suffered very much since the occurrence. I had a beating from my husband three weeks ago, but that had nothing to do
with the pain from which I suffered. REYNOLD's wife came to see me on Sunday evening, and asked me to make it up, but I
told her I must leave it to my husband. Cross-examined by Mr KENT; I never had to apply to a magistrate for protection from

my husband. My husband and I have had hundreds of rows since we have been together. The bruises on my limbs were caused
by defendant. I had a number of bruises on my legs and arms about three weeks ago. I did not fall out of the cart coming back
from Lowestoft, neither did my husband throw me out. I never told anyone that the bruises were caused by my husband. If my

husband struck me, I would strike him. We had some drink at Lowestoft. I will swear that when the doctor came to see me he
did not say that there was nothing the matter with me but my drunkenness. Edward MAYHEW said: I am in the employ of Mr
HADINGHAM, miller, of Beccles. On Saturday night last I was in the "Pickerel" with REYNOLDS. SEYMOUR came in

whilst we were there. REYNOLDS passed some remark on SEYMOUR who told him to mind his own business. Mrs
SEYMOUR came into the room just then; she rushed at the defendant and seized him by the hair, and they both fell down on
the floor, REYNOLDS on top. I picked him up, and complainant and her husband went away almost directly. REYNOLDS did

not strike Mrs SEYMOUR at all and I did not see him tear her dress; I will swear to this. I have often seen complainant and her
husband quarrelling at the "Pickerel," and on those occasions blows have been exchanged; and I have also frequently heard her
complain to Mrs CLARKE of injuries caused by her husband's cruelty towards her. By the Bench: I did not see anything in

Mrs SEYMOUR's hand when she ran at the defendant. Robert CLARKE said: I am landlord of the "Pickerel." I have been
summoned to attend here as a witness, and I would have been here before but was not able to come, I have not been told to stay
away. REYNOLDS was at my house on Saturday last. SEYMOUR came in while he was there, and his wife came in shortly

after him. I did not hear REYNOLDS say anything to the SEYMOURs. I told complainant in the passage that it was time to go
to bed. Her husband was then sitting on a form in the kitchen. Mrs SEYMOUR passed me to go into the kitchen. I did not hear
any noise in the kitchen after complainant passed me. I have often heard scuffling between complainant and her husband. I did

not hear anyone speak about Mrs SEYMOUR falling out of a cart. SEYMOUR sent a message to REYNOLDS asking him to
come to the "Pickerel" on Thursday, but he would not come. I went with the SEYMOURs to REYNOLDS this morning, and
he said he would not compromise the case unless SEYMOUR paid all of his expenses. By the Bench: I was not in the room at

the time of the row, and I know nothing about it. After consulting for some time, the Bench addressed the defendant, saying
had it not been for the trivial assault the woman had made on him by hitting him in the face, they would have fined him 20
Pounds, or in default, a long period of imprisonment; as it was, they made the small fine of 1 Pound, and 10 shillings and 6

Pence costs, or in default 14 days in Ipswich gaol. The money was paid.

symptoms of hydrophobia, which continued to increase in intensity until Tuesday night, when, notwithstanding the skill of
Messrs FYSON and GAMBLE, he died one of the most distressing deaths imaginable. It appears that in the month of March
last, while giving some physic to his dog, which was ill - rabid no doubt- he was bitten by it, but so slight was the wound that

but little notice was taken of it, and deceased felt no particular effects thereof until he was seized with hydrophobia, as stated

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ....At the Petty Sessions, Dunmow, on Monday, the 25th September, William LAUNDRUM
and Charles WILLIS were charged by the secretary to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals with

torturing a horse on the 22nd September. Mr COLAM stated that on the said day the defendants were engaged in carting bricks
near Felstead, and in crossing a field the wheels of the cart got embedded in the loose earth, and the horse was unable to draw

them out of the ruts. Annoyed by this the defendants lighted some straw and placed it under the belly of the horse, which
though it caused fearful injuries, failed to cause the poor animal to move the load. Witnesses having deposed to the foregoing

facts, Mr YOUNG veterinary surgeon, and officer YOUNG of the society, were called to prove the extent of the injuries, and
from their evidence it appeared the wretched brute was covered with blisters over the entire length of the belly, each of which

measured the size of a hen's egg, and the private parts were swollen to five times their natural size. They had never before
beheld such suffering. Mr COLAM having pressed for heavy penalties, the chairman said there could be no excuse for the
brutality which had been proved. Even if the horse had jibbed, as the defendants alleged, such horrible inhumanity could not be

tolerated. Everyone knew that kindness alone would cure jibbing. He should commit LAUNDRUM (the elder defendant) to
prison for three months' hard labour, and WILLIS (the youth) for one month's.

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ....Miss GARRETT, (daughter of Newson GARRETT, Esq., of Aldeburgh), whose
endeavours to be permitted to study and offer herself for a medical degree at St Andrew's were frustrated by the opposition of

some members of the Senatus of that University, has succeeded in attaining her purpose in another mode. On Thursday, she
passed her final examination, and received a license to practice medicine from the Apothecaries' Hall, London, having gone
through the entire course of study prescribed by that body. The course includes five years' apprenticeship, a preliminary

examination in arts, and two professional examinations. The first of these is on anatomy, physiology, chemistry, botany, and
materia medica. The second is on the practice of Medicine, pathology, toxicology, medical jurisprudence, and midwifery. A

certificate of attendance at lectures on each subject is required. These certificates can only be given by regular lecturers in
recognised medical schools. Certificates of hospital practice and of clinical instruction are also required. All these conditions

were fulfilled by Miss GARRETT. Her course has been complete, missing nothing. The apothecaries' license, which, after this
full course of study, and passing the two examinations, she has now obtained, constitutes the legal qualifications of what are

called in England general practitioners. They usually take beside a diploma in surgery, but this is not at present open to
women, nor is the M.D. degree anywhere in England or Scotland. Miss GARRETT has thus done everything that lies open to
one of her sex to constitute herself a fit and useful member of the noble profession she has embraced; but if this result affected

herself only, she would, we believe, be the last to consider it a triumph. Her true achievement consists in proving it possible for
any woman of sufficient nerve, culture, devotion, and intelligence, who desires to enter such a vocation, to do so in England
with full professional sanction, and invested with due professional authority. She proposes, we believe, at once to commence

practice in London in those branches of the profession to which she desires especially to devote herself. What influence the
example of one so well qualified by natural gifts and careful study to prove an ornament and aid in the ranks of the members of
the beneficent art of healing will have in leading others of her sex to adopt the same line of life, time alone can show. At all

events, every lover of the free exercise of talent in the sphere of its choice will rejoice in Miss GARRETT's honours and
success.

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS .....A shocking case of death from exhaustion and debility, and the want of the common

necessaries of life, has recently occurred at Ipswich. A poor and half-starved man named Robert BARKER, about 50 years of
age, and of a wandering character, who according to the evidence given at the coroner's inquisition would pass the night
anywhere, although he had a wife and two children in the Union, on Friday evening, the 10th November, was found on the

Woodbridge Road lying in the road apparently in a state of insensibility. He was removed in a wheel barrow to No 2 Police
Station, and not long after his admission he expired. The inquest was opened on the following (Saturday) morning, at the Bull

by debility and exhaustion by the want of the common necessaries of life.

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ....On Tuesday afternoon, an inquest was held at the Western Tavern, Lowestoft, before F.B.

MARRIOTT, Esq., Coroner, on the body of Henry RACKHAM, aged 55, of No.6 Jacob Street. Esther RACKHAM, widow of
the deceased, stated that her husband returned from a visit to Wangford on Sunday afternoon, and took his tea about a quarter
to five; he ate heartily, and was as cheerful and well as usual. He retired to rest about seven pm, and she followed shortly

afterwards. He slept comfortably until about midnight, when he got up and struck a light, looked at his watch, and said it was
about ten minutes past one o'clock. He then got into bed again, and shortly after she heard him make a great noise of choking.
She spoke to him, but he could not speak. She raised his head, but he died immediately. She was greatly alarmed and called for

assistance, and her neighbours, Mrs MARTIN and Mrs LEISTER went to her as quickly as possible. She went for Mr RAY,
surgeon, who was soon there, but could do nothing. She had heard her husband formerly complain of shortness of breath and
pain in his side, but for the past twelve months he had no medical attendance. During the last seven weeks he had been

employed in filling ballast wagons for the Great Eastern Railway Company.---Mr RAY said he was sent for about 1.30 am.
Went he went he found deceased quite dead, but warm. From what his wife had said as to his previous ailment, he should think
deceased died from disease of the heart. Such work as filling ballast wagons would be likely to cause a person labouring under

that disease to die suddenly. He believed death to be from natural causes. Verdict accordingly.

PETTY SESSIONS

Thursday, Nov 30.---Before J.L. BEDINGFIELD, Esq., Rev J.C. SAFFORD, Richard MANN, Esq., and other Magistrates.
....Poaching.----Edward DUNN, of Harleston, labourer, and Charles CARVER, of Wortwell, carpenter, were charged with
having on the night of the 26th Nov., unlawfully entered certain inclosed land, situate in the parish of Flixton, in the occupation

of William BEAUMONT, with certain nets, for the purpose of taking game. Mr KENT of Beccles, appeared for the
defendants. George HOWLETT said: I am under gamekeeper to Sir R. S. ADAIR, of Flixton Hall. At about 11 o'clock on
Sunday night last, the 26th November, I and five men, watchers, were going up a lane towards Tinck's wood. I heard a gate go,

and I and the men immediately ran up. We saw four men against a gate that leads into Mr HARRISON's field. As we
approached, they raised their sticks in a threatening manner; but when we drew nearer to them they ran away up Mr

HARRISON's field. We pursued them a short distance, but as they kept calling out "Bah! bah!" we knew there were others
behind; we therefore left off the pursuit, and returned to the gate.When we got into the lane, we saw the two prisoners in the

opposite meadow, which is in the occupation of Mr BEAUMONT, of Flixton. They had lurchers with them, and also sticks.
We went up to them; VINCE collared CARVER, and BUTCHER laid hold of DUNN, who struggled and got away; when I

collared and held him. We took them to the Buck Inn, Flixton, and I afterwards came to Bungay for the police. I produce a net
which I found against the door of the Buck Inn on the following morning, and I produce a stick which I took from BUNN [sic
should read DUNN!] [questioned] By Mr KENT: There is a footpath in Mr BEAUMONT's meadow, but it is only used by the

workmen on the adjoining farms. I don't know that it is a public footpath. When we first saw the prisoners they were about ten
yards from the gate. They said they thought there was a footpath, but I told them there was none. The men made no great deal
of resistance, but they called out "Don't grane [sic] us." I would take anybody into custody if I found him in that field with

dogs and a stick at 10 o'clock at night. The prisoners made a noise such as the others did who ran away. This is a well- known
signal of danger among poachers. James VINCE, one of the watchers, who was in company with the last witness on the night
in question, fully corroborated his evidence, and produced a net which he found in the meadow the following morning, near the

spot where he collared CARVER. Mr KENT, at some length, cross-examined the witnesses, but without shaking their evidence
in the least. He afterwards addressed the Bench in their defence [sic], and urged that there was no evidence to prove that they
entered the meadow with an unlawful intent, as there was a footpath in it; neither did the evidence prove the allegation of the

information that they were in search of game, as none of the implements used in such pursuit were found upon them, nor were
the nets found shown to have belonged to them. The Bench convicted the prisoners, and they were each sentenced to three
months' imprisonment, and at the conclusion of the same, to enter into recognizances [sic] of 10 Pounds each, and to find two

others in 5 Pounds each, or one of 10 Pounds, for their future good behaviour.

BECCLES Cattle Plague.---Very many good suggestions on the cattle plague have been made, and, among others, the

following mode of treating stock on their journey from one place to another, which certainly merits attention. It is suggested
"that a nose- bag, with a small strap to buckle behind the ears, should be placed on any bullock before starting on his journey;

the bag to be made of tar twine or such coarse material that the animal could freely breathe, and should be dipped in a solution
of chloride of lime with camphor placed at the bottom." As the poison is probably inhaled by the breath, this mode of treatment
during transit may be very beneficial. At any rate it does not cost much, and the same bags after being properly cleansed and

disinfected, would do for several lots of cattle. It grieves us to say that the plague is Spreading All Over The Kingdom. The last
weekly return reports an increase of 1000 cases over the previous week.

week, has been issued. Mr THACKER's loss is estimated at 250 Pounds. Mr Charles THACKER is a dairyman, and resides at

the back of Regent Road and Theatre Plain; he has lost the whole of his herd of eleven valuable cows and four heifers by the
plague. The herd was inspected and certified as healthy by Mr SHIPLEY, V.S., on Monday, November 20th; the following day
one of the cows was stricken by the disease, and within a week the whole of the animals died. This herd represented the

will be a ruined man.

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ....On Sunday 31st December, a young man applied to the officer in charge at the police
station, Tower Churchyard, Ipswich, for an order for a night's lodging in the Union. Sergeant FIRMIN told the young man that
he must be searched, but he refused to accede to this, unless he could be searched by a woman. FIRMIN said that this could not

be allowed, and then the applicant acknowledged that she was a woman, and that her name was Ellen CARTER. She was taken
to No 2 Police Station, and searched by Mrs THOMPSON, wife of the officer in charge at the station. She was entirely
destitute, but was respectably dressed except being barefooted. She stated she was 19 years of age; her parents formerly resided

at Yarmouth, where her father died about three years since. Her uncle sold off the effects, and she then started to see the world
with 3 Pounds in her pocket. She assumed male attire on reaching London, and obtained a situation as errand boy, in the

establishment of Messrs NICOLSON and ARNOTT, silk merchants, St Paul's Churchyard. She remained in that situation for
two years, and then went several voyages to sea as cabin-boy. Her desire to see more of the world prompted her to abandon the

sea and take to the road, and her last tramp was from Peterborough, and she arrived in Ipswich quite destitute on Sunday, the
31st January, without shoe or stocking. She was detained at the No 2 police station till Wednesday morning, and in the mean

time several small sums of money was [sic] given to her, and on Wednesday morning she went away by the Parliamentary
train for London, the money she had received being sufficient to purchase a pair of boots and to leave a few shillings for a
fresh start. She is described as tolerably good looking, and as making up so well as a boy as to pass muster under the keenest

eyes. She appears to have been well educated, and during her stay at the police station she worked some difficult sums with the
greatest ease, and could write well and with facility two or three different hands. She informed the policeman that she could
play with ease upon several musical instruments, and that since she had "been a boy" she had learned to play upon the flute.

The police station not being supplied with musical instruments there was no opportunity of testing her attainments in this
direction, but she appears to have impressed those who came in contact with her very favourably, and it is a pity that some
effort was not made either to restore her to her friends, or to induce her to settle to some situation or employment consistent

with her sex. When she left Ipswich she stated that her object in going to London was to seek employment or assistance at the
hands of her former employers.

YARMOUTH Appaling [sic] Life-Boat Accident. Twelve Lives Lost. At noon on Saturday, the 13th January, a most terrible
and melancholy catastrophe occurred at Gorleston, which has resulted in the loss of no fewer than twelve brave and
experienced boatmen. The facts are as follows: - In the forenoon, a vessel with a signal of distress in her maintopmast rigging

was observed to be running northward through the roads, and at once the lifeboats "Rescuer" and "Friend of All Nations" were
fully manned and proceeded out of the harbour in order to render assistance. The wind at the same time was blowing a gale
from the S.S.W. The sea was rather rough, and there was an exceedingly nasty swell on the bar. Both lifeboats were under

reefed sails, the "Rescuer" just ahead, and on the port side of the "Friend of All Nations." As they passed over the bar, the
"Rescuer" touched the ground, in consequence of which her rudder became unshipped. At this moment a heavy sea struck her
and she caught the ground, and immediately turned over bottom upwards, the crew, numbering 16, being underneath. Two of

these, named Robert WARNER, sen., and George PALMER, managed to get from under her sides, and were rescued by means
of boat-hooks by the crew of the other lifeboat, which had immediately been brought to anchor. The "Friend of All Nations"
was then at once veered round and proceeded after the "Rescuer," which in the mean time had beaten over the North Sand

bottom upwards with two of her crew---Edward WESTWOOD, jun., and William AUSTRIN---who had succeeded in getting
on to her keel. The "Friend of All Nations" came up with her after she had drifted about three quarters of a mile, and managed

to take off the two above-named men, who were in a very exhausted state. Every effort was made by the "Friend of All
Nations" to recover the rest of the unfortunate men, but without success, as not a man of them was to be seen. The following is

a correct list of the boatmen saved and lost: - Saved Edward WESTWOOD, William AUSTRIN, Robert WARNER, and
George PALMER. Lost James WOODS, jun., aged 30, leaves a widow. Charles WOODS, 26, not married. Edward WOODS,

sen., 56, leaves a widow and three children, aged 21, 17, 15. Edward WELTON, 28, widow and infant. Abel NEWSON, 27,
widow (enceinte) [pregnant] and two children, aged three years and two years. Christopher WHILEY, 52, widow, and six
children, aged 19, 17, 14, 12, 8, 4. Christopher PARKER, 64, widow. William DAWKINS, 35, widow and five children, aged

9, 7, 5, 3, and infant. William MANTHORPE, 21, unmarried. James FLEMING, 24, unmarried. Benjamin HARRIS, 34, leaves
a widow. The crew of the "Rescuer" were all experienced boatmen, and were under the command of Robert SPILLINGS, the
coxswain, in whom they reposed the greatest confidence as a man of long experience and steadiness. That the accident resulted

from no want of skill there can be no doubt, but from the insufficient depth of water and the state of the wind and tide at the
time. The "Rescuer" came ashore subsequently near the Wellington Pier. She was a boat in the buoyancy and seaworthy
qualities of which the men had the utmost confidence, having been out with her in the heaviest gales. She belonged to the

Ranger Company, for whom she was built in 1856 by Messrs BEECHING, the father of whom won the Northumberland prize
of 100 Pounds for the best lifeboat. It ought to be stated that the crew at the time of the accident were not protected by life-
belts, and wore their ordinary clothing, consisting of guernsey frocks, oily jackets, and heavy sea-boots. A catastrophe so

appaling [sic] has not occurred in this district for many years, and has spread gloom not only over the hamlet of Gorleston and
Southtown, but over the whole of Yarmouth. The list comprises nine widows, and 22 children, who we believe are most of
them, if not all, unprovided for.

EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS ....Robert WARNER, one of the four boatmen rescued by the crew of the "Friend of All
Nations," died on Thursday [25th January] morning. Hopes had at first been entertained of his recovery, but being a man of

advanced years the shock received by the system was too much for him. This makes the number of deaths 15. The other three
men have perfectly recovered from the effects of the accident. A meeting was convened by the Mayor, at the Corn-hall, on
Monday, for the purpose of providing for the widows and orphans of the drowned men, and also of establishing a permanent

fund for similar calamities on future occasions. The attendance was large and influential. Among the speakers were the Mayor,
the Rev Mr NEVILL, minister of the parish; Mr HAMMOND, Mr PRESTON, Mr T. BRIGHTWEN, and Mr CHAMBERLIN
[sic], and resolutions were unanimously carried in accordance with the object of the meeting. It was stated that subscriptions

amounting to between 60 and 70 pounds had already been received by the Mayor and other gentlemen from various quarters,
in consequence of the reports of the calamity which had appeared in the daily papers. Before the meeting terminated the
subscriptions amounted to 250 Pounds. The boat which capsized and caused the accident on the 13th January, is in no way

connected with the National Lifeboat Institution, nor is the boat a self-righting one. There are four of these large salvage boats
on the coasts of Norfolk and Suffolk, and one at Margate. They belong to the boatmen themselves, and are constantly engaged
in saving property. Two of them have recently capsized. Nearly all the 153 boats of the National Lifeboat Institution are self-

righting boats, and are specially used in saving life in cases of shipwreck.

The Anaesthetic Spray Producer A very ingenious apparatus somewhat on the principle of the toy for dispensing Eau de
Cologne in the form of vapour, has recently been contrived by Dr Benjamin RICHARDSON for the purpose of producing what
is known to the medical profession as "anaesthesia," and by the uninitiated as "numbness." Dr RICHARDSON uses his

apparatus for the purpose of producing local anaesthesia, previous to performing a surgical operation, and he has been
remarkably successful in many cases. The spray of ether is, for instance, applied to the gums before extracting a tooth, and the

tooth becomes as white as the tooth itself in less than a minute, and quite insensible. So successful is this method in extracting
teeth that the Doctor speaks of extracting four teeth in one case, without the patient experiencing any pain, and without the loss

of a drop of blood. The apparatus has been procured by Mr H. LYON, of Ipswich, and that gentleman intends to make use of it
in his dental practice. The great point in favour of the new method of local anaesthetics is the fact that the reaction is in no

degree painful, and its use is by no means prejudicial to the health of the patient, as is sometimes the case with the use of
chloroform.

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS At Ipswich, about three o'clock on Friday morning [30 March], Police-constable CANN

heard cries as of a woman in distress, whilst on duty in Fore Street, St Clement's, and on going to the place whence they
proceeded found a woman, named Ann SHEPPARD, of Woodbridge, had been seized with the pangs of childbirth. He called
up Mr RUMP, assistant to Mr Webster ADAMS, who at once went to the assistance of the woman. CANN knocked up the

people at the Bull and Dog beer- house, and they at first consented to admit the poor woman; but after keeping her waiting in
the street for some time, refused to take her in, though it was evident she would in a few minutes become a mother. The

consequence was that she was delivered of a fine female child under an entrance in the street, Police-constable CANN holding
her in his arms. A hand-cart was obtained from Police-station No 2, and the assistance of Police- constable PLATTEN also

obtained. The two policemen and Mr RUMP conveyed the poor woman and her child to the house at which she was staying in
Duke Street; she is now doing very well.

HALESWORTH At The County Court held on the 23rd April, before John WORLLEDGE, Esq., Judge, the hearing of the
following case caused much merriment in the court, in which his honour heartily joined. Pussy And The Cream---Harriet

WARNES versus George SKINNER.--This was the claim of 14 Shillings and 7 Pence for plaintiff's clothes, which had been
detained by defendant, in whose service she had been living. Plaintiff---I let myself to defendant at 1 Shilling and 3 Pence a
week until Michaelmas. Mrs SKINNER turned me out abroad on Wednesday, and told me not to darken her doors again,

because the cat had been in the dairy. I could not help that. His Honour---I think Mrs SKINNER had better have turned pussy
out of doors, and told her not to darken the dairy door again. Cats like milk and cream, you know. Plaintiff---I asked Mrs
SKINNER for my things, but could not get them, and I had no clothes to wear but these rags. (Plaintiff here exhibited her

dress, which was certainly a tattered affair.) I have never had my wages. Defendant---The cat was the "origination" of the
dispute. It got into the dairy, and my wife took the girl "to do" about it. The milk-carriage stood ready to go to Halesworth, and
plaintiff abused my wife about the cat, and I said to the girl, "Ann, take yourself off with the milk; if you don't I'll put you out;"

and I did so, but I did not say anything about darkening the door again. Plaintiff---I told missus I could not help the cat getting
into the dairy, and I did not know it was there. I came to Halesworth when I was turned out, and sold the milk,and took the
money to the plaintiff. Mrs SKINNER-

--I keep two cats. I had "taken the girl to do" a great many times about the cat getting

into the dairy. She used to leave the front door open. She used improper language to me,and called me a fool. The cats were
fed every morning. I went to Mr CROSS, the magistrate's clerk, about it--- Defendant---(correcting his wife)---No, the Clerk of
the Peace (Loud laughter). His Honor---I don't know any Clerk of the Peace in Suffolk except Mr BORTON. Defendant---I

don't know what he was : he wore spectacles. (Renewed laughter). His Honour---The law is a thing which does not like any
one to take it into their own hands. You had a right to dismiss the girl for misconduct, but you had no right to keep her clothes.

She makes a very modest demand (after careful valuation) for her wardrobe---only 14 Shillings and 7 Pence, which amount
you must pay, with costs, and the girl's expenses coming here, or you must give up her clothes.

staying at his house. Both prisoners pleaded not guilty. The man has been convicted several times before on similar charges,

living in part of the house that had the same opportunity of taking the money if it was there." After the female prisoner was

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ....A man named John STUBBINGS, of Kirtling, near Bury St Edmund's, was watching a
hive of bees about to swarm, and accompanying their hum with a house-key and fire-shovel, the queen apparently attracted by
the music, alighted upon his head, and was immediately followed by the whole swarm. STUBBINGS had the presence of mind

to stand perfectly still, and in a few minutes he presented a ludicrous appearance, the bees completely covering one side of his
head, leaving him only sufficient breathing space. As soon as they were settled the man's wife swept them off into a hive, and
was stung in doing so, but he escaped unhurt.................................... ....A correspondent has favoured the Bury Post with the

following extracts from the letter of a native of Suffolk, named Joseph CHAPMAN, who has for the last twenty years held a
confidential situation in the family of a Polish Count residing near Warsaw, on the subject of the rinderpest in that country: ---
"The rinderpest is an illness that we have here continually in the country. I have lost my cows twice, and here in Iabloma, near

Warsaw, on the estate of my Count, we have lost during six years about 550 cows. Two years ago we lost in one year 300.
There is no cure, no remedy for them, but we have seven cows which have had the illness, and since that have been among
cows that have died with the rinderpest, and it takes no more effect on them. The only cure for the rinderpest is the knife and

separations. If you find one ill separate it directly from the others, and great care must be taken that the people that attend to ill
animals never might communicate with the people that have to do with the healthy cattle, or stacks, and never let a stranger go
into your cow-stable. With one word the only cure is the Knife and Separation. If an ill animal is in one field, and a healthy one

in the next, it can also fall ill, without further communication; and people bring it with them in their clothes. Dogs, carts, hay,
straw, all woollen things take the illness from one to another. If you have food enough keep your cattle in the stable, and do not
let the men or people that attend them go anywhere only in your yard and house, and take care that the people do not

communicate or speak with people that come from the part where the rinderpest exists. With one word, we have no remedy;
the rinderpest is until now incurable."

EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS ...On Tuesday last, a man about thirty years of age called upon Mr Thomas LYNES,

ironmonger, Market Hill, Diss, and said his name was Mr George CARR, and that he was farm-bailiff to Sir E.C. KERRISON,
Brome Hall. In the blandest manner possible he gave Mr LYNES an order for a number of scythes, to be sent to Brome Hall.
Mr LYNES not having sufficient number of the particular kind required by Mr CARR, obtained two or three of a

neighbour.The fellow who had thus selected Mr LYNES for his patronage gave him some strong hints that some gratuity
should be given in return for the order, but Mr LYNES wisely deferred that matter until the delivery of the goods. On taking
the scythes to Brome Hall on Wednesday, it was found that no such person as Mr George CARR was known there, and that no

orders had been given for new scythes.----The next dodge was to proceed to Mr John HUMPHREY's Railway Tavern,
Victoria-road, where the fellow represented himself as a gamekeeper in the employ of Sir E.C. KERRISON; that he had taken

two or three poachers and was then after another, but as he could not take him without the necessary papers, which he had
unfortunately left at Brome Hall, he must have a pony and trap at once in order that he might fetch them. Mr HUMPHREY

being deceived by the respectable appearance and address of "Mr George CARR," immediately furnished him with a poney
[sic], which he had recently purchased, and a car, and away went his visitor. On reflection, Mr HUMPHREY, thinking there

might be some swindling in the matter, set off at once for Brome, but could obtain no tidings of his patron. Thence he went to
Scole, and learnt that his pony and car had passed through that village. Driving towards Harleston, tidings were again obtained
at Fish Needham, where it appears the fugitive made a detour, taking the low road to Harleston, and thence to Bungay, where

he passed the "Thatched House" between one and two o'clock. Mr HUMPHREY now started on the road home, and shortly
overtook the objects of his search, and jumping out of the vehicle in which he was riding, got into the one driven by "Mr
George CARR," and commenced a chat with him on recent events, winding up by demanding 1 Pound for the expense he had

been put to in the chase. CARR at once jumped up, put his hand in his pocket, and said, "I'll pay," and in an instant jumped out
of the vehicle and made leg bail across the fields, which was the last Mr HUMPHREY saw of him. When CARR ordered the
trap, he was very chatty about the keepers on the Brome estate, and seemed to be well up in all matters pertaining thereto,

which threw Mr HUMPHREY off his guard. He is described as being of light complexion, dark whiskers, and somewhat above
the average stature.

BUNGAY At The Norfolk Assizes held on Wednesday, before the Chief Baron KELLY, William BROUGHTON (55), saw

sharpener, and Frances BROUGHTON (48), hawker, husband and wife, were indicted for stealing a tin milk pail, value 1
Shilling and 6 Pence, the property of Robert JOHNSON, at Wortwell, on the 18th July last.---The prosecutor, a very deaf,
feeble old man, stated that on the above day the prisoners came into his house, and the woman asked him to give her a little hot

water. He made a fire for them, and they sat and drank tea as long as they liked, when the man left the house. The woman
remained about ten minutes longer, still drinking tea, when she went to his pantry and took out a milk pail, and also left the
house, telling him that she was going to fetch some milk. Witness allowed her to go without opposition, because he thought

she intended to come back with the milk, but she never returned.---Police constable BARTON said he apprehended the
prisoners at Bungay, and found the can in possession of the woman, who alleged that she intended to return it.---In summing

up the learned judge said it was right that he should point out to the jury the law as regarded an offence committed by a
husband and wife. They would remember that if the two acted in concert and together in committing an offence, the law took it

for granted that the wife acted under the control and direction of her husband and protected her from any punishment; but on
the other hand if it was shown that the wife acted independently of her husband, and was the originator and first mover of the

offence, then they could find both of them guilty. In the present case he thought the woman had acted in concert with and not
independently of her husband, and he considered it his duty to tell them that, although there was no doubt about her guilt, yet it
would be their duty to acquit her. If they believed that the husband had afterwards joined her, and having become aware of her

possession of the pail, showed no disposition to return it, however painful it might be, it would be their duty to find him
guilty.---The jury acquitted the woman and found the man guilty of feloniously receiving.---The learned Baron, addressing the
female prisoner, said he had no choice but to discharge her. It was with great reluctance that he did so, because there was no

doubt that she was as guilty as her husband, but as he had said the law left him no alternative, and she would escape the
punishment which she richly deserved.---A former conviction having been proved against the male prisoner, he was sentenced
to eighteen months' imprisonment, twelve of which are to be accompanied with hard labour.

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS A pair of swallows have for three years made their nest and reared six broods of young birds

on a small ledge on the landing at the top of the staircase, close by the entrance to the bedroom in the cottage of Mr John
EDWARDS, the parish clerk of Blyford. In 1864 they had two broods of three and four each; in 1865, ditto, four and five; in
1866, ditto, five and four; the latter brood is now to be seen nearly ready to leave the nest. The birds have access to their nest

through the bedroom window, which, in fine weather, is left open for them during the night, but in wet and unfavourable
weather it is closed, and the worthy clerk in response to the anxious twitter of the birds, on such occasions has been in the habit
of rising to open it for them about four o'clock, to enable them to go in pursuit of food for their young. So domesticated have

these birds become, that they evince not the slightest anxiety or alarm as the clerk and his wife pass close by them every night
on their way to bed.

EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS ...On Tuesday last, a dreadful calamity occurred at Norwich, by which three men were

instantaneously hurried into eternity, and three others so much injured that they have since died; while of the remaining three
who were personally affected by the catastrophe, at least two of them are certain to carry about with them the traces of their
misfortune for some time to come. The scene of this awful mishap was at the well

-known dyeing, chemical manure, and oil

cake establishment of Messrs STARK and Co., which occupies a site of ground lying between Duke's Palace- street [sic] and
St George's Plain, on the banks of the River Wensum, and extending to St George's Colegate. On the day in question, most of
the hands employed at the works had left for dinner at one o'clock, the usual hour. Mr STARK himself had previously gone

out; but though there were other individuals on some part of the establishment, the only persons in the vicinity of the engine-
house, boiler, and shaft (excepting, indeed, Mr James SMITH, clerk), were James PAYNE, a resident of Heigham; John
RUMP, New Catton; James HAWES, Peafield; Henry CLARKE, Heigham; James BREEZE, St Mary's; Joseph LEAMAN, St

Martin's-at-Oak; Daniel TAYLOR, St Miles's; John DUNN, St Edmund's; and Henry BROWN, St Augustine's. About ten
minutes to two o'clock, while PAYNE was attending to the engine, RUMP and HAWES enjoying a short sleep on some sacks
by the side of the boiler, and other men named being engaged on the dye side, the boiler burst; and the centre plate, rising right

up with irresistible force, carried away the roof of the engine-house, which descended in dismal disorder all around. Without,
of course, any delay, search was made for the men who were known to be near the boiler at the time of the concussion, when
the blackened and mangled corpses of BREEZE and TAYLOR were almost at once discovered; but that of CLARKE, who was

"coaling" a fire in the dye-office [sic] at the moment, was not found until about two hours subsequently, the quantity of debris
by which he was hidden having prevented his earlier exhumation. The six other men---whose sufferings proceeded from the

same cause which had brought about the immediate death of the three previously mentioned, namely, a combination of steam
scalds and being struck by heavy substances falling upon them---were instantly conveyed to the Hospital, where the utmost

attention was bestowed upon them by the medical and nursing staff of that institution. HAWES, who was only scalded in the
face and hands and slightly cut in the lip, after having his wounds dressed, was discharged the same day, but LEAMAN,

BROWN, and DUNN have since expired. With the exception of RUMP, the deceased and injured men were all married men,
with families, some of then having worked on the premises for 30 or 40 years. Mr SMITH, the Clerk, made an escape little
short of miraculous. A cut-lead gutter, weighing about a hundred weight, was precipitated by the explosion on to the upper

walk in the garden attached to the Ladies' Diocesan Training Institution, on St George's Plain---a distance of some forty or fifty
yards---and luckily without any further damage to life or limb. It was exceedingly fortunate that none of the young ladies were
on the walk at the time of the unwelcome visitant; for if they had, there must have been such an issue as must inevitably have

added to the list of fatalities. The tidings of the deplorable occurrence soon spread over the entire city, from all parts of which
people flocked in immense numbers to the locale of the sad affair. The Chief Constable and Mr Superintendent BARNARD
were soon on the spot, and rendered essential service in keeping the injured premises from unnecessary intrusion, as well as to

ensuring traffic in so important a thoroughfare from complete stoppage. Both Mr MORANT and Mr BENEST were likewise
assiduous in their exertions during the greater portion of the afternoon, and gave invaluable advice and assistance to those
concerned; and to prevent further accidents Mr MORANT deemed it necessary to direct the shattered and unsupported roof of

one of the rooms, nearly abutting on the street to be pulled down. The boiler, we understand, had only been in use about six
months. On Saturday evening another of the sufferers expired, and an inquest was held on the body on Monday morning.---Six
of the poor fellows were buried at the Cemetery on Sunday, and an immense concourse of people were on the ground to

witness the affecting scene. A subscription has been set on foot for the benefit of the sufferers, and we hope that a large sum
will be forthcoming.

PETTY SESSIONS
Thursday.---Before Major MARGITSON (Chairman), Richard MANN, Esq., and R.D. FRENCH, Esq. William

HADDINGHAM, of Bungay, innkeeper, was charged with having, at Bungay, on the 8th November, assaulted Eliza
PLUMMER, his servant, by striking her on the head. Mr KENT, of Beccles, appeared for the defendant. The complainant,
sworn, said that whilst she was engaged in clearing the tea-table in the market room on the day in question, the defendant came

upstairs and inquired why she had not answered a bell which had been rung in another room. She said she would do so when
she went down.She then took up some of the things to carry down, but the defendant would not permit her to do so; and on her
saying it was better to go downstairs full handed than empty, he boxed her ears very violently, and when she went downstairs

he ordered her to go to bed, but this she refused to do as she had not had her tea. In reply to Mr KENT, she denied that her
master, on coming into the room, saw her and Mr TOOKE doing anything improper or immoral. Mr Peter TOOKE and she

were alone in the room, but the prosecutor [sic - should be defendant] did not complain that he saw anything between them.
She should have finished clearing away the tea things, but had to wait for Mr TOOKE's reckoning. When her master slapped

her face, a loaf of bread fell off a dish she had in her hand. She did not throw it at him.She was not angry before he struck her,
but afterwards she told him he should not knock her about as he did his wife. The defendant said that on going to his Market

Tea-room to see why the complainant did not answer a bell which was ringing, he found her and Mr Peter TOOKE acting, but
she appeared to be taking more liberties with him than he with her. He ( the defendant) ordered her to leave the room and go
downstairs, but she would not do so without taking some of the things down with her, and as he would not allow her to do so,

as she was tipsy and had been so all day, he refused to allow her to remove the things, when she threw the loaf of bread at him,
and he, in the heat of the moment, boxed her ear. The complainant denied that she was intoxicated, and also denied having
thrown the loaf at defendant, or accused him of ill-treating his wife, until he had struck her. The Chairman said that although

the assault was of a trifling character, yet as the defendant had committed an unmanly act in striking a woman, and had also
acted illegally, the bench convicted him of the charge, and adjudged him to pay a fine of 1 Shilling, with 7 Shillings and 6
Pence costs. The defendant paid the fine and costs.

HURR, aged 28, William and Henry BARBER, 14 and 17; and Samuel WATSON, 22, who alone lived to tell the sad tale,

being fortunately rescued by the Mary, of Perth, whilst swimming with an oar. He received every attention from the kind-
hearted Captain, C. WAIN, who after restoring him from his exhaustion sent him ashore with a dry suit. WATSON supported

one of the boys until the poor lad succumbed to the cold. We regret to say that HURR leaves a wife and young family, the last

EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS ....On Saturday night, the 12th January, about ten o'clock, the dwelling-house of Mr
Benjamin BLAKE, Sprowston, was entered during his absence, by two men with the aid of skeleton keys, and every room
ransacked. It fortunately happened that between ten and eleven Mr BLAKE's son who was going home with his sweetheart,

observed a light at the back window of his house, and knowing that his father was not at home, and the house unprotected, he
knocked up a neighbour and requested the young woman to call another neighbour to fetch the policeman. The officer
(SPALDING), who was in immediate attendance, at once entered the house, and found two old thieves named William

LIPTHORP, of New Catton, and William SPENDLOVE, of St Augustine's, shoemakers, in the back premises. Having
removed the prisoners to the lock-up, SPALDING returned to Sprowston, searched the house of BLAKE for housebreaking

implements, and found 18 skeleton keys, a jemmy, and a dark lanthorn.

COUNTY COURT Held at the Town Hall, on Saturday, January 26th, before John WORLLEDGE, Esq., Judge. This was a
special day appointed by the judge for the last examination of George COOKE, a bankrupt, and also for the said bankrupt to

make application for his discharge. George COOKE (the above-named bankrupt) filed a petition in this court on the 22nd day
of October, 1866, in which he described himself, as late of Thurlton, in the county of Norfolk, blacksmith, and now of St
Augustine's Gates, in the city of Norwich, in no business or employment, and was duly adjudicated a bankrupt on such petition

the same day. The eighteenth of December last, (the court day at Beccles) was the day originally appointed for the said
bankrupt to pass his last examination and to make application for his discharge, when owing to a heavy cause list, and as it was
understood the bankrupt would be opposed by some of his creditors, the judge appointed this a special court for the purpose of

hearing the case, as he considered there would not be sufficient time to thoroughly investigate the matter on an ordinary court
day. The opposing creditors were Charles BECK, Joseph GRICE, and William SPORE (bankrupt's late landlord), of Thurlton,
and Charlotte LEMAN, of Norton Subcourse, widow. Mr C. DIVER supported the bankrupt, and Mr COSTERTON appeared

for the opposing creditors. The bankrupt, having been sworn, underwent a long examination by Mr COSTERTON, on behalf
of the creditors, from which it appeared--that the bankrupt commenced business as a blacksmith about six years ago; that he
took the business of William SPORE, of Thurlton, having previously been in his employ about seven years, during which

period he received his board and 7 Shillings per week. When he took the shop SPORE valued the fixtures and stock-in-trade to
him at 60 Pounds, and as he was going to have the business he agreed to pay that sum. It was to have been paid by instalments
of 10 Pounds per year. He paid three instalments amounting to 30 Pounds, and the fourth year he paid 3 Pounds, making

altogether 33 Pounds paid by him on that account, and leaving 27 Pounds still due. It appeared that up to the year 1865, the
bankrupt had been able to meet his engagements, but after that date he failed to do so, owing to the increased expenses of his
family and the insufficiency of his earnings. He had always paid his rent till last year, when, as he was unable to do so, and was

also in arrear with the instalments due on the valuation, his landlord (SPORE) gave him notice to quit, which he did about a
fortnight before Michaelmas last, taking with him, to Norwich (his present residence), all his household furniture and most of
his tools and stock-in-trade, and leaving only a few fixtures on the premises at Thurlton. It further appeared that the bankrupt

began business without capital, having the valuation of 60 Pounds hanging over his head, and also owing a further sum of 10
Pounds borrowed money. He had never possessed much furniture, and what he had was worth very little, most of it being

second-hand when he bought it. After his removal to Norwich, and before filing his petition, he sold part of his furniture for 2
Pounds, and he also sold a grindstone and sundry tools of his trade, for which he obtained altogether 4 Pounds 19 Shillings 10

Pence. Previous to going to Norwich, the bankrupt collected various sums on account of bills due to him, and out of what he so
collected and the sum realised by the sale of his furniture, tools, etc he paid for the removal of his family and goods from

Thurlton to Norwich; and he also paid his solicitor Mr HARTCUP, of Bungay, 8 Pounds, for taking him through the court, and
the remainder of the money he had spent for the maintenance of himself and family, as he had been out of employment from a
fortnight before Michaelmas last to the date of filing his petition. The bankrupt had in his possession, at the date of his

bankruptcy, the remainder of his furniture. Those things were seized by the bailiff of the court, who estimated their value at 26
Shillings, when the bankrupt, thinking they were worth more than that to him, procured a friend to purchase them. This sum
and a few small debts collected by the official assignee represented the sum total of the bankrupt's assets, and amounted to

between 2 and 3 Pounds. Bankrupt knew he was in difficulties about money matters at least a year and a half before filing his
petition. He first found that out when Mr MULLENGER of Beccles, Ironmonger, put him into court in April, 1865. In 1866
Mrs Charlotte LEMAN refused to give him credit any longer, when (although he knew he was hopelessly insolvent) he told her

he could and would pay her. He told her that to induce her to give him further credit, which she did, believing he intended to
pay her. At the time he promised her, he could not see exactly how he should do so. He had made similar promises to Mr
BECK, (another of his creditors) but it did not appear that he afterwards obtained goods of him. If he had not received notice to

quit, he did not think he could have paid his rent, neither did he think he could have gone on much longer. He admitted he had
spent a considerable sum of money in public houses, but stated that Mr SPORE (who is now an innkeeper), had received the
greater part of it. Charles BECK, William SPORE, and Charlotte LEMAN, three of the opposing creditors were sworn and

examined as to the debts, dealings, and transactions of the bankrupt prior to his bankruptcy. Mr COSTERTON then addressed
the court on behalf of the creditors, and submitted to His Honour that the Bankrupt had been guilty of a misdemeanour within
the meaning of the 221 sec. of the B.A. [Bankruptcy Act?] 1861. The bankrupt was here subjected to a further examination, but

nothing of importance was elicited, and Mr DIVER then briefly addressed the court on his behalf. The Judge having reviewed
the evidence stated with regard to the bankrupt's removal from his late residence at Thurlton, that having received notice to

quit, he was bound to obey it, and the act of leaving could, therefore, be looked upon as his voluntary act, and for this reason,
he could not take that into account against him. With respect to the debts due from the bankrupt, his Honor [sic] stated that if

he had not contracted liabilities after he was fully aware of his insolvency, and consequent inability to satisfy them, he (the
Judge) would have granted his order of discharge at once, but in this matter he had done wrong. However, he was not satisfied

that the bankrupt had been guilty of misdemeanour under the 221 sec. of the B.A. 1861, and it had been decided that a mere
suspicion of fraud was not sufficient ground to justify a commissioner in bankruptcy in directing a prosecution for that offence.
In the present case there was certainly nothing to justify that course. By the 3rd clause of the 159 sec., he had the power under

certain circumstances of refusing or suspending the order of discharge of a bankrupt, and also of sentencing him to be
imprisoned for any period of time not exceeding one year from the date of such sentence. His Honor [sic]stated he was of the
opinion the bankrupt could not have had, a the time he contracted a certain debt, proved under the bankruptcy of Mrs Charlotte

LEMAN to be due to her, any reasonable or probable ground of expectation of being able to pay the said debt, and he
therefore, considered it a public duty to punish him for that offence. He thought, however, that it was not necessary to be
severe in this instance, and he, therefore, adjudged that the said George COOKE, for his offence, should be imprisoned in the

castle at Norwich for the period of one calendar month, and expressed a hope that this would be a warning to persons in similar
circumstances to act with honesty and integrity.

TOFT MONKS A Sad And Fatal Accident occurred to Robert ALDRED, a young man about 19 years of age, in the service of

Mr COLMAN, of "The Elms," here. On Tuesday last [12 February] he was sent with two horses and a waggon to Covehithe
for seed, and when returning and passing through the hamlet of Hulver, it is supposed he made an attempt to gain the shaft of

the waggon, missed his hold, and fell, the wheel passing over him causing instant death. He was at once removed to the Gate
Inn, where an inquest was held on Thursday, before B.L. GROSS, Esq., county coroner, and the jury returned a verdict of

"accidental death." The deceased was a remarkably steady, well conducted young man, and his untimely end is lamented by all
who knew him.

EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS An extraordinary occurrence has happened at Norwich in the death of Capt. LEYTON, a
retired naval officer, whose body was discovered at his residence, Unthank's -road [sic], on Thursday morning, after lying dead

about six weeks. It appears that the deceased's housekeeper left him at Christmas, since which time the house has been closed.
Although the captain had been missed, suspicion was not excited until Thursday morning, when a gentleman residing on
Unthank's-road waited upon the magistrates, and upon the information which he gave them the police were instructed to search

the house. Under the direction of the Chief Constable, a police-officer broke open a window at the back of the premises, and
having thus obtained an entry, he made his way upstairs, and found the deceased lying in his bedroom. From the appearance of
the body, there can be no doubt that several weeks have elapsed since the deceased's death, and this opinion is strengthened by

the fact that he has not been seen by any of his friends and neighbours since the 24th December, It is understood that the
deceased, some months since, while walking in St Gile's, Norwich, caught his foot in a lady's crinoline, and being thrown
down sustained an internal rupture. Securities for money to a large amount were found in the house of the deceased, who,

nevertheless, perished miserably, and entirely forsaken by his fellow-creatures [sic].

SHOCKING MURDER IN NORWICH AND ATTEMPTED SUICIDE A shocking murder, accompanied with an attempted
suicide, by an old man, on Friday morning, threw the city, and especially the neighbourhood of St Benedict's, into a state of

unusual excitement. The murderer is a poor old man named John WINTER, aged 71, and his victim his wife Elizabeth, aged
73; both natives of Norwich. They had been living till within the last month in Barwell's Court, St Stephen's, when they
removed to Fountain Yard, St Benedict's, where they occupied a room on the ground floor, which, although bearing some

marks of poverty, was of a very comfortable character, compared with what is usually found where a single room is used for
every purpose. In one corner was a good French bedstead, well supplied with bedding, while the general appearance of the
place denoted tidiness and care. For many years the couple had lived together, it is said, on terms of the greatest affection, but

recently the unkind words, and still less kind physical treatment of the man towards his helpless wife, raised some suspicion
that his mind was weakening. The apparent cause of this treatment and of the culminating act we are recording, is the
impression that had forced itself upon the unhappy man that he and his wife would go to the workhouse. For this foreboding

there appears to have been no ground, for, in addition to receiving parochial relief, their wants were attentively looked after by
their married daughter, Elizabeth HARDESTY, living on Grapes-hill, whose husband is in the employment of Mr HARDY,

grocer. On Friday morning the old man got up, dressed himself, opened the shutters, and made a fire. He was spoken to by a
neighbour named COOKE, who says that she noticed something strange and reserved in his manner. However, shortly

afterwards Mrs HARDESTY's daughter Clara, aged 12, went as usual to attend to the old people, and they breakfasted
together, deceased keeping in bed. When the meal was finished the old man turned out the little girl, and she, alarmed, at once

ran home. He then seems to have obtained a razor, and bound up the handle with cord (for the supposed purpose of preventing
the blade shutting), inasmuch as when an elder granddaughter, Laura came, she found the door locked, and her grandfather on
the bed in the act of cutting the throat of her grandmother with the razor bound in the manner described. Her shrieks brought

the neighbours to the house, and the door was forced open by Mr MINNS, butcher, who entered the room in company with
Hannah GOULDER. They found that blood was pouring from a ghastly wound the old man had inflicted in his own throat, and
that he was stretching from the bed to lay the razor on the window-sill. This scene was also witnessed by Mrs HARDESTY

herself. Mrs WINTER was found to be quite dead and the left side of her throat presented a fearful wound, which seemed to be
more of the nature of a "dig" or thrust than a cut. On addressing WINTER as to what he had done, Mrs GOULDER was told by
him, as well as he could articulate, "Go to ---." Subsequently, however, he expressed his gladness for what he had done,

remarking that now his wife would not go to the workhouse, nor should he. Medical aid was at once sent for, and Mr F.C.
BAILEY was soon at the house. Detective GARROD, of the county constabulary, and police constable BULLARD were also
speedily in attendance, and, with other members of the city constabulary, rendered what service they could. The bed was found

to be saturated with blood, and that so determined had been the attempt at suicide that the windpipe was completely severed.
Mr BAILEY dressed the wound, and a stretcher was obtained on which the man was conveyed from beside the body of his
wife to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital. Although it is doubtful whether he will recover, he is likely to live two or three

days.

THE AGRICULTURAL GANG SYSTEM An important blue book has just been published, being the sixth report of the

Children's Employment Commission. Blue Books have the reputation of being dry, but this report is quite sensational in its
revelations. Its burden is the sufferings and degradation of children employed in agriculture in some of the Eastern Counties.
We like not the word "gang;" it suggests convict life, and reminds one of the prison. But we must take the fact as it is, and the

naked fact is that agricultural gangs of women and children still exist in several counties, notably Lincolnshire,
Cambridgeshire, Huntingdonshire, Norfolk, Suffolk and Nottinghamshire. The whole system is but a development of that
monster evil, the insufficiency of house accommodation for the labouring poor. It seems that in many of these counties there

are large farms on which there is scarcely any accommodation for housing the labourers, certainly not for any additional
number that may be brought into any district, according to the exigencies of agricultural employment. The result is that a
person calling himself a gang-master hires a number of children and young persons, takes them into any place where their

services may be required, sets them to work, in the spirit of the Egyptian task-masters of old, and makes a per centage [sic] out
of their earnings. In the early morning he collects his gang and takes them to their labour; and many of the poor children have
to walk four or five miles to their work. It is given in evidence, for instance, by one woman, that her little girl, of six years of

age, had to walk eight miles to her work; that she worked from eight in the morning till half-past five, and that for this the child
received 4 Pence. "She was that tired," plaintively said the mother, "that her sisters had to carry her the best part of the way

home." It may easily be imagined that any man who would work children under such a system as this is not likely to be a man
of very good character. The report shows us indeed that they are generally indolent and intemperate; they carry sticks, and thus

a gang-master, taking his children to work, virtually acts much the same as a cattle-driver. His mode of payment makes him
necessarily a hard taskmaster; and his complete control over the girls under him has the worst possible results. We might easily

adduce many facts which would clearly prove that the gang system is a great anomaly and disgrace to our civilised country,
and to the advanced age in which we live. But what we have stated is enough to show that its entire system is bad. We cannot
wholly blame the gang-master; the farmers who in any way encourage the system are also to blame. These farmers, we learn,

are inclined to look upon the plan as a necessary evil; they do not applaud it, they simply endorse it, and make no effort, in too
many cases, to counteract it. But such a system as this, which supports many of the evils of the negro slave system, cannot be
necessary. The Commissioners, who have inquired into the whole system, do not conclude their report without pointing out

several remedies. Among their suggestions are, that gang-masters should be licensed, a necessary qualification being a
certificate from three householders, two of whom must be guardians of the poor; that no boy under eight, and no girl under
twelve, should be allowed to work in a gang, or be allowed to work elsewhere for more than eight hours a day; and

arrangements are suggested for the separation of the sexes, and for the protection of women, and children from cruelty or
unfair treatment. We trust that the attention of Parliament may be speedily directed to the whole subject. We have derived the
greatest benefits from the regulations as to the employment of children in factories. The children and the poor of our fields and

hamlets are worthy of equal care and consideration.

BECCLES Presentation To Mr R. WARD. The teachers of the Sunday-school connected with the Congregational Church met
in the School-rooms on Tuesday last, and took tea together. After opening the proceedings with singing and prayer. The Rev
John FLOWER, president of the school, who was in the chair, said the main feature of the present meeting was the recognising

of the transfer of the office of superintendent from Mr WARD to Mr Henry READ. Mr FLOWER remarked that the term of
Mr WARD's connection with the school had been unusually long - it had lasted fifty years, and what years these had been!
What a change had come over the people of this country during that time! Whole classes of people could now read whose

parents were altogether illiterate. This change had produced a corresponding one in the work of Sunday-school teaching;
whereas fifty years ago the duty of a teacher was to instruct in the art of reading - now he had far higher aims. The duty
demanded higher requisites in a teacher, and involved increasing responsibility. The disinterested kindness shewn [sic] towards

the children gave the teachers a hold on their parents which should be employed for good. Our beloved Queen has recorded
that when she first heard the Rev Norman M'CLEOD pray in an earnest manner for the Royal Children she "felt a lump rise in
her throat;" all parents in this respect are alike - "one touch of nature makes the whole world kin." .....The Rev J. FLOWER,

said that he had been requested by the teachers to make a present to Mr WARD in their name, which he did with very great
pleasure. He spoke of the diligence with which Mr WARD had fulfilled his duties, and of the simplicity of purpose which he
had shewn [sic], never employing his official superiority to gratify the love of power, or even to appear to assert pre-eminence

over his brethren..... ....Mr FLOWER then begged Mr WARD's acceptance of a silver inkstand, bearing the following
inscription: -"presented to Mr Robert WARD by the teachers of the Independent Sunday-school, Beccles, on his retiring from
the office of Superintendent, after a connection with the school of upwards of fifty years. May 14th, 1867."

Wickham Market, after an illness of six weeks. Although he had reached his 89th year, the man in question, John GOODALL,
had never required medical assistance, until his first and last illness. His diet consisted chiefly of bread and onions; of the latter

he was very fond, and used to say that there was a deal more flavour in an "inion" than in cheese and butter. During the last
winter he ate five pecks of raw onions. Although in very humble circumstances he was much respected by those who knew

him for his quiet and contented demeanour.

YARMOUTH Two Men Drowned.---We regret to have to record the accidental drowning on Friday morning the 12th July, of

two men - James NORGATE of Bradwell and George SUTTON of Billockby. These men were two of the crew of the smack
Gipsy Queen, belonging to Mr WARNER of Gorleston, and were sworn friends. They were continually larking with one

another, and it was whilst so engaged that they both fell overboard together and were drowned. The smack at the time was
lying in the roads, some of the crew were ashore with the small boat and the rest were down below. Those below heard the

trampling overhead and then a sudden splash, but on going on deck could see no one. The two men, without doubt, clung
together as they fell into the sea, and being heavily clad, did not rise again to the surface. This is another terrible warning of the

insecurity of life.

SUTTLE, residing in Lower Orwell Street, in the parish of St Mary Key, Ipswich, had given birth to three children, two girls
and a boy. The Rev J. DUNINGHAM, incumbent of the parish, has taken a great interest in the case, and having brought it to

the notice of Her Majesty, she has been graciously pleased to forward, through Major-General Sir Thomas M. BIDDULPH,
K.C.B., one of the keepers of her Majesty's privy purse, the sum of 3 Pounds, which has been handed to the poor woman, and
which we need scarcely say is a most acceptable gift.

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ....Parish Chests.---By some mischance the Stowmarket parish boxes containing the records

and historical papers of the parish, extending over a period of 600 years, were removed by the contractors when the church was
restored, and were lost sight of until Tuesday week, when they were found to have been placed upon the waste piece of land in
Ipswich-street, and left exposed to the weather. It is stated that some of the parchments having been taken away, attention was

drawn to the circumstances, and the remainder have been removed to a place of greater safety. It will be seen by
Hollingworth's History of Stowmarket that some of the documents were of great antiquarian value. Indeed, it was said by the

late vicar, who arranged them, that they were the most complete set of parish records in the Eastern Counties. It is hoped by all
interested that the damage and loss are not so great as anticipated.

SOUTHWOLD ....Death From Drowning.---We regret to record that William, son of Mr Crisp John PLANT, of this town,
aged 16, was unfortunately drowned at Tobago, West Indies. It appears from evidence given at the inquest that he was on

board the barque, Mary, of London, John SPICER, master, and on the 1st July last, was employed in washing the decks. He
was soon missed, and every inquiry was made without success. After an interval of three days his body was discovered floating

YARMOUTH Shocking Accidents.---On Tuesday, a man named Samuel WELLS, in the service of Mr FENNER, fish
salesman, of this port, while engaged in steeping some sails in a vat containing liquid in a boiling state, by some means slipped

and fell into the vessel. The cries of the poor fellow brought prompt assistance, and he was removed at once to the hospital,
where it was found he had sustained severe injuries to his body and lower extremities. The sufferer is, we are happy to state,
progressing as favourably as can be expected considering the severe character of the scalds.---An accident of almost as serious

a nature occurred in the early part of the week, to a seaman named Anthony ROVE, who, while engaged unloading a timber
laden vessel at the quay, was knocked down by a number of deals which had been insecurely stacked. In this case the sufferer
was almost killed by the falling timber, but plenty of assistance being at hand, he was extricated from his perilous position

when he was found to have sustained severe contusions and internal injuries. As in the previous case, the suffer was promptly
removed to the hospital, where he is progressing favourably.

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS Successful Courage.---On Thursday morning, as a man named ROUSE, in the employ of Mr

W. FLORY, Brook-street, Ipswich, was driving a four-wheeler along the Butter Market, one of the two traces broke and
caused the horse to start off at a furious rate. It turned over the Cornhill, down Tavern-street. When passing Mr R. SMITH's,
woollen draper, Mr Richard GRAYSTON, observing that the horse was uncontrollable, gallantly seized the bridle, which he

firmly held till he succeeded in stopping the horse at the bottom of Tower-street. There was a hand-cart standing opposite
Messrs BACON's Bank, and Mr GRAYSTON seeing he would be dashed against it, vaulted over it without losing his hold of
the runaway. Great credit is due to Mr GRAYSTON for the courageous manner in which he came to the rescue, for had not the

horse been stopped when it was in all probability some serious accident would have occurred there being two children in the
vehicle.

YARMOUTH Abandonment of a Ship.---The Board of Trade have received the following report from Her Majesty's Consul at
New York: - "New York, August 15.--Sir, - The ship S.L. TILLEY, of Yarmouth, left Savannah on the 27th July with a cargo

of pine timber, bound for London, and a crew of 21 men all told. Nothing of importance occurred until the afternoon of August
1, when in lat. 35 7, long. 73, the wind increased to a strong gale. At 8 pm laid the ship to under lower maintopsail, the gale

still increasing to midnight, when it blew a hurricane, with heavy rain, at which time the pinnace was washed off the skids and
the deck load started, the fore and maintopgallant masts went over the side, and the lower maintopsail blew out of the bolt

ropes - the sea making a clean sweep over her. I called all hands into the poop to prevent them from being washed overboard.
At 12.45 am a heavy sea struck the ship on the weather quarter, twisting the rudder off between the rudder post and the upper

band; the ship began to pay off when the following sea took the ship under the counter and threw her on her beam ends,
washing overboard the second mate and six men. Cut away the mizzen rigging, when the ship lay about ten minutes and partly
righted, the mainmast going by the deck. The remainder of the crew were saved by lashing themselves to the mizzen rigging

dead-eyes, the wind blowing with greater violence than ever, accompanied with torrents of rain and a fearful sea. About 7 am
on the morning of the 2nd the rain abated, and the mist cleared away sufficiently to see distinctly the outline of the ship, but the
sea still making a complete breach over her. Found foremast and foretopmast still standing, but the sail blown to pieces; port

side of main rail, quarter deck rail, and all the beams abaft the mizzenmast washed away; rudder completely gone; the fore and
after cabins cleared of everything; provisions and water all gone; the gale and sea decreasing, but we were still obliged to keep
ourselves lashed to the dead-eyes of the mizzen-rigging, where we remained until the morning of the 4th , when we were taken

off the wreck by the whaling bark Union, and were landed on the evening of the 10th, Captain ROGERS having treated us with
every kindness, and done all in his power to relieve our destitute condition, nothing having been saved but the clothes the crew
stood in. The names of the men lost are John MAYNE, second mate, aged 27; James DENAHAY, steward, aged 28; Charles

DAMP, cook, aged 45; Edward JOHNSON, seaman, aged 33; William CHALMER, seaman, aged 45; William CHALMER,
aged 17; and John WHITE, boy, aged 17.---Signed Robert CROWELL, late master of the ship S.L.TILLEY.

EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS Sudden Death At Walsingham.---On Thursday morning (5th September), about 6.30 a.m.,

an old woman named Hannah WILLIAMSON died suddenly in this parish. An inquest was held upon the body at the Black
Lion Inn, on the Saturday morning following, before Charles WRIGHT, Esq., the coroner, when from certain circumstances
coming to his knowledge, coupled with the fact that deceased was a member of a Burial Society in the parish, that gentleman

deemed it necessary that the strictest inquiry into the cause of the death should be instituted, and ordered an additional juror to
be summoned on the inquest. Mary Ann FRARY, the wife of James FRARY, of Little Walsingham, Labo urer, stated that the
deceased was a widow, and had lived with her for the past five years. She was 71 years of age, and was allowed 3 Shillings and

6 Pence a-week from the parish, of which sum 1 Shilling per week was paid to witness for attending her. The deceased had lost
the use of her right side, but could walk about. She was cheerful and as well as usual on the day preceding her death. She got
up about five o'clock on the Thursday morning, offering to take care of the two children and get breakfast ready, whilst witness

went gleaning. When returning home at 7.30, after having been sent for, the old lady was dead. She had not taken any medicine
for the past month, and was in a burial club, 10 Pounds being payable at death. Her son Henry paid the levies, and expected to
receive the 10 Pounds. Neither witness nor her husband claimed it. Deceased always wished the money to be spent on her

funeral. She had lived with her sons William and Henry, but the wife of the former turned her out, when witness's husband
took her in. She went occasionally to see her sons, and was there the chief part of the day before her death.---Uri MANN, a
married woman, living next door to the deceased, deposed that about 6.20 a.m., on the Thursday morning she hear deceased

groaning and went to her. She was in violent pain, and said, "I've got the cramp in my stomach." She had her arms across her
body. Witness fetched deceased's sister. She saw a basin outside the door with what appeared to be vomit in it. She did not see
or hear deceased vomit. About five minutes after, she fell down, and died shortly afterwards.---Ann WILLIAMSON, sister of

deceased, saw her sister about 6.15 a.m. She was in great pain and tried to vomit. Shortly afterwards, she fell down, and died in
the chair they lifted her into.---Frances WILLIAMSON, wife of William WILLIAMSON, stated that the deceased came to her
house on Wednesday last about 7.30 a.m, and remained there till between five and six in the evening. Witness's husband was at

home all day. They all had their meals together. Deceased appeared as well as usual. She said she had suffered from sick
headache on the previous Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. She ate her food as usual on Wednesday, and had bread-and-butter
and tea for breakfast, and potatoes, herring, and a cup of tea for dinner. They all dined off the same food. Deceased did not

complain of anything, and left the house as cheerful and as well as usual. Witness knew there was 10 Pounds to be paid at
death, and expected her husband was to have it, as he was the eldest son. The younger son Henry ordered the coffin. Witness
did not know who was to pay for it.---The Coroner thought that there was no clear evidence as to the cause of death; it might

arise from natural causes, or it might be otherwise; he deemed a post mortem examination necessary to all parties. In these
remarks the jury concurred, and the inquest was adjourned for a week, each juryman being bound in 10 Pounds on his own

recognizances.

SOUTHWOLD Accident.---On Tuesday last, between one and two o'clock p.m., a sudden gust of wind from the north-west
caught the Black Mill upon the common (the property of Mr W.W. BARDWELL, of Sotherton, and in the occupation of Mr C.

M. MARSDEN), on which it spent its fury, completely denuding it of its sails and doing considerable damage to the round
house and other parts of it. The gust seemed more to resemble a tornado, as one of the sails was carried twenty yards at least
upon the common. The miller in the employ of Mr MARSDEN was at the time in the mill and had a most providential escape.

It was only last December a similar accident happened to the mill in the occupation of Mr William BAGOTT, on the Church
Green.

EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS Opium Eating.---Agricultural gangs are bad enough, but opium-eating is worse; and this, as
most of the doctors and some of the parsons of the district are aware, goes on to an incredible extent in the eastern counties. Dr

HAWKINS, of King's Lynn, tells the readers of the Medical Journal that half of the opium imported into England is consumed
in Lincolnshire and Norfolk. One Lynn chemist sells 200 pounds [weight], another 140 pounds a year of solid opium, besides
five or six gallons of laudanum, and five or six gallons of "Godfrey's Elixir" (a pint of laudanum in every three gallons) a

week. People will be startled to hear of drawers full of half-drachm packets of opium, of which many customers take three a-
day. A farmer came in to get some good laudanum. "How many drops ?" asked the chemist. "Drops," was the reply, "give me
an ounce and a-half." The chemist looked at him, saw he was in the habit of taking it, and gave him the dose. He drank it off,

returned twice in the day for the same quantity, and took home a half-pint bottleful with him when he left the market. The habit
is no new one. The present writer can vouch for its existence in and around Spalding - and even across in Leicestershire a
dozen years ago. The excuses would be obvious; deficient food with the poor, ague and "rheumatiz," needing an anodyne, with

others. But it is a growing habit; and Dr HAWKINS speaks very strongly of its pernicious effects in poisoning the blood. To it
he attributes the excessive infant mortality in the district, and the "miserable, feeble, brownish-yellow countenances so striking
among many of the inhabitants." In fact, he thinks its effects on the system almost as bad as those of syphilis, and calls for

some interference to discourage what is becoming a cause of wide-spread degeneracy in the breed.---Imperial Review.

YARMOUTH Extract From Cassell's Magazine.---I don't mean to be too typographical, but I must say a word about the
"Rows" for which alone Herringhaven deserves a visit. The rows are not wooden arcades like those of Chester, but straight and
extremely narrow alleys, running between the principal street and the river, like the rungs of a ladder, to the number of one

hundred and fifty-six. Now-a-days, only the humbler class of people live there, but having penetrated into a good many of
them, I am bound to say that in no instance have I seen the squalor and misery of a low neighbourhood in London. There are
vice and poverty in Herringhaven, as elsewhere, but you see none of those sights which sadden the heart of the reflective

Londoner. I think the filthy coal-smoke has something to do with the degradation of our metropolitan poor. Country folks, who
come and settle in Babylon, grow in time weary of contending with the blacks, and suffer their children to grow up grimy and
ragged, while the children playing about the doors in the rows of Herringhaven are clean, healthy, decently dressed, and civil -

spoken. Some of these rows are paved with flagstones, or the yellow bricks, and in such cases are tenanted by the smaller class
of shopkeepers; but the majority of them are furnished with the ordinary egg-shaped flint pebbles of the country, picturesque to
the eye, but torturing to tender feet in canvas shoes. In these rows the houses stand back from the narrow footway, being

separated from it by a low wall with a gate in it. If you peep in at the gate, you will see a scrupulously-scrubbed paved yard
with a pump in it - pumps abound in Herringhaven - some fuchsias in pots, for the natives are great flower fanciers, or a
scarlet-runner climbing up the wall. Whitewash is laid liberally on every accessible place; the causeway is plentifully supplied

with gutters, made of semicircular yellow tiles; and in no instance have I encountered those vile odours which offend you on
the Continent. It would be false to say that I never smelt fish; one gets whiffs of fish in all parts of Herringhaven, and there is a
vast deal of shrimp-boiling and curing done in these rows; but of those filthy stenches which Coleridge numbered seventy-two

in the city of Cologne, I detected not one. I must observe, in conclusion, that these rows are traversed by narrow carts, made
expressly for that purpose.

YARMOUTH Death Of A Naval Veteran.---On the 10th November, the grave received, at the good old age of eighty-two

years, the remains of James SHARMAN, who was a seaman on board the Victory at Trafalgar when NELSON received his
death wound. For very many years SHARMAN had been one of the "lions" of Yarmouth, and but few visitors to the splendid
monument erected on the South Denes to the memory of NELSON - of which SHARMAN was the keeper - would omit having

a gossip with the veteran. He was a native of Yarmouth, and entered the navy in 1799, having been "pressed" when a waiting-
lad at the Wrestler's Inn, on board H.M.S. Weazel [sic], Capt DURBEN. Having served four years, he was wrecked off
Cabaratta Point, near Gibraltar. He then joined the Victory, under Capt. Thomas HARDY, and at Trafalgar he assisted in the

sad office of carrying the dying NELSON from the lower deck to the cock pit. From Nall's Guide to Yarmouth we learn that -
"He returned home in the Victory, and that he was successively drafted to the Ocean, the Milford, and the Prince Frederick,
from which he was discharged for illness. He was subsequently admitted to Greenwich Hospital, the confinement of which,

however, not suiting him, he was, upon the warm recommendation of his old commander, Capt. HARDY, appointed to the
office of keeper of NELSON's monument at Yarmouth, which he held for upwards of fifty years. Referring to 'David

Copperfield,' its readers will not fail to remember the graphic description of a tempest and shipwreck on our coast, and of the
deed of daring performed by Ham Peggoty, in dashing into the surf to save a struggling mariner; the incidents are no creations

of the novelist's brain; they occurred at Yarmouth many years ago, and the prototype of the brave Ham was James
SHARMAN. The facts as detailed in the local papers of the day, are briefly these: - On the 25th November, 1829, the

Hammond brig, from Newcastle to London, during a tremendous tempest, both of wind and wave, parted from her only chain,
and came on shore south of the Monument near to the harbour; but owing to there being loose sand between the vessel and the
beach, she was unable to come nearer than three or four hundred yard. All attempts to reach the vessel from the shore having

failed, and the day fast closing in, the sight, it may readily be believed was distressing enough; but the lingering light of heaven
displayed one more appalling - amid the rage and war of elements, the wreck parted, a mast falling on either side, burying, as
was supposed, the whole of the crew in the surging tide. About seven o'clock in the evening, however, SMITH, a preventive

man, brought in a report to the Fort public-house, that he heard groans upon the wreck. Upon this, SHARMAN, the keeper of
the monument, went down to the shore with the man, and attaching a rope to his waist, which he gave to SMITH to hold, he
ventured through the surf to where the wreck had drifted. The surf carried him three times off his legs, and the fourth time

threw him with his back on the wreck; the sea all this time running mountains high, and the night as dark as pitch. After some
search he discovered a man clinging to the breast-hook, who informed him that three other men had but a few minutes before
been washed off by the sea. SHARMAN took the rope off his own body, tied it round that of the man, took him up in his arms,

and plunging with him into the swelling surf, at the same time calling to SMITH to haul ashore, the man was thus rescued from
sharing the fate of his six companions; while SHARMAN, in the heroic endeavour to save the life of a fellow-creature, left
himself at the mercy of the waves, and the chance of getting to shore."---The hardy old veteran kept the possession of his

faculties to the last, and until within a few days of his death was always ready to greet those who came to while away an hour
listening to the yarns the old seaman was only too delighted to recount. About a fortnight ago, however, his usual health failed
him, and he gradually became weaker, until Wednesday, the 6th November, when he breathed his last.

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS Housebreaking And Courageous Conduct Of A Female.---On Sunday morning, about two
o'clock, the wife of Mr Charles SARGENT, furniture dealer, etc, of Melford, was in bed and awake, when she heard a noise in

the pantry, like the rattling of glass bottles. Having awakened her husband and obtained a light, they both went down stairs,
and saw two men run out into the yard. Although only attired in their night clothes, they quickly followed the thieves, but soon
lost sight of them, but Mrs SARGENT, on looking round, saw a man secreted behind a post, in a crouching attitude. She

rushed at him, and having thrown her arms around him, a struggle ensued, in which her face was forced against the wall, and
she received a blow on the nose, from which the blood flowed freely. Her husband, being close at hand, took charge of the
man, while Mrs SARGENT went to the Police-station, next door. Inspector KEEBLE, who had just arrived home, immediately

returned with her, and took the man into custody on the charge of housebreaking. Upon searching him at the station, a hare and
a table knife were found in his coat pocket. On returning to Mr SARGENT's house, the latter told the Inspector that he had also
lost a goose, and upon looking about, a goose was found in a meadow adjoining the yard. Upon further examination, foot

marks of two persons were visible, leading towards the premises. The knife no doubt was used in opening the back door. The
prisoner's name is Charles OST, bricklayer, brother to two men were tried at the last Assizes for housebreaking.

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ....Death Through Eating Lucifer Matches.---A little girl at Debenham named HUNT, about

2 years of age was on Wednesday night taken ill from the effects of eating phosphorous off some lucifer matches. Medical
assistance was at once procured, but the poor girl died early on the following morning. The body awaits an inquest. Inquest.---

An inquest was held in Blaxhall on Wednesday last, by C.C. BROOKE, Esq., Coroner, on the body of Henry WOODBRIDGE,
of Blaxhall, bricklayer, aged 70 years. It appeared that on Wednesday, the 1st January, the deceased and another man were
carting whins; when the load was about half finished the deceased, who was on the cart, complained of feeling giddy and got

off. The other man got on to the load and deceased pitched up about two heaps when he commenced twirling round and fell
down. He laid there about half an hour and then got up and walked home. On Saturday deceased was much worse, and his wife
sent to Mr KEER, surgeon, of Wickham Market, who sent him some powders. Deceased continued however to get worse, and

died at eight o'clock on Sunday evening. It appeared deceased had suffered for a long time from constipation of the bowels,
and a head affection, and had been twice in Melton Lunatic Asylum. Verdict, "Death from natural causes." ....Sudden Death.---
On Tuesday last [7 January], Mr S.B. JACKAMAN, the coroner for Ipswich, held an inquest at the Norfolk Hotel, touching the

death of an old man named Robert TREW, aged 63 years, who had died on Sunday night. The deceased had previously been a
bricklayer's labourer, and had also worked for Messrs. TURNER, of St Peter's iron works, but for the last two years he had
done no work. He suffered from indigestion, and had been under the care of Mr W.H. MEADOWS some months since, but for

the last two months he had had no medical attendant. Deceased was as well as usual up to Sunday, and he went to Chapel in
the afternoon and evening, and ate his food with a fair appetite. He came home about twenty minutes to nine on Sunday night,
and soon after went to bed. His wife was about to retire herself when she heard a noise upon the floor upstairs, where she

found the deceased lying upon the floor in his night dress perfectly unconscious. She tried to raise him up but could not, and
was compelled to call the assistance of a neighbour, Mr BIRD, who came, and with his help she got deceased into bed again;
he remained unconscious for some time and died. There was a little frothing from deceased's mouth and he was slightly sick.

Deceased had had two such fits as these before, and Mr MEADOWS who then attended him, had ordered mustard poultices to
be applied to the calfs [sic] of his legs, but deceased's wife did not apply them in this case, nor did she send for the doctor. She

did not apprehend any danger, but she was upset by the occurrence. Mr W. H. MEADOWS said he had previously attended the
deceased for apoplexy, and he had no doubt that death arose from the rupture of a blood vessel on the brain, caused, doubtless,

by the deceased eating indigestible food. The jury returned a verdict accordingly, and also added the following: The jurors are
of the opinion that the widow of the deceased was negligent in not sending for the doctor when the deceased remained

insensible for a longer period than he had upon former occasions.

EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS ....Starvation In West Norfolk.---Two cases of starvation have recently occurred in West
Norfolk, one in King's Lynn and the other about six miles in the country. One was the case of a poor woman named Anne

WHITE, aged sixty seven, who was in receipt of half-a-crown a week, parish relief, out of which she paid 1 Shilling a week for
rent, so that she had 1 Shilling and 6 Pence a week to find her food and clothes with. The evidence at the inquest showed that
she had been in the habit of sleeping on some mats and straw, having no covering save an old sack or two. The medical man

described the body as being in a state of the most extreme emaciation. The stomach and intestines were empty. Death was
occasioned by bronchitis, accelerated by want of the necessaries of life.---The other case was that of a man named Robert
HUDSON, a sawyer, who was found nearly dead, lying on the snow by the side of the road at Tottenhill. He was proved to

have lived at Watlington, where he was found by the police-officer lying on a bunch of straw, there being no bed or furniture in
the house. Deceased left to go in search of work, and would seem to have fallen down from exhaustion by the side of the road.
The post mortem examination showed the existence of pneumonia; and the jury returned a verdict of "Died by the visitation of

God, death being accelerated by privation and exposure."

YARMOUTH ALLSOP v. ALLSOP and COLBY.---This case came before the Divorce Court on Saturday last, the husband
suing for divorce on the ground of his wife's adultery with the co-respondent. Both the respondent and the co-respondent
answered, and traversed the adultery. It appears that the parties were married in Great Yarmouth in April 1857, both of them

being at the time servants in a gentleman's family who resided there. In that family the petitioner was butler, and some years
after the marriage, having obtained a similar appointment in a gentleman's family at Cheltenham, he rented a house for his wife
at Yarmouth, in which she was to take in lodgers, and proceeded to Cheltenham to fulfil the duties of his situation. In his

absence the respondent formed the acquaintance of the co-respondent, who was a resident at Yarmouth, and an owner of
fishing boats, and on the 28th December, 1866, she was confined of a child, of which the petitioner could not have been the
father, as he had not cohabited with her within the requisite period. Evidence was given of some distinct confession of guilt by

the respondent, but there was no evidence against the co-respondent. The Court pronounced a decree nisi. The co-respondent
was dismissed from the suit.

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS Contravention of the Gang Act.---At the Eye Petty Sessions, Ann WOODS, a licensed gang
mistress, was charged with employing a female with males in an agricultural gang at Palgrave, on the 28th of January, contrary

to her licence. - The Rev T.L. FRENCH, who witnessed the offence, retired from the Bench during the hearing of the case.
Defendant admitted the charge, and said she took the girl, who was 14 years of age, to work in the gang from motives of
charity, the girl being her niece and one of a large orphan family. She would own that she had done wrong. Might she have the

girl to work in the same field, but apart from the boys? - The Chairman : No; that would be splitting the law. The Act was
passed for the express purpose of keeping the sexes separate. You were cautioned and instructed at the time you took your

licence. - Defendant : May I have a licence for the girl as a gang mistress? - Chairman : No; the law does not contemplate
granting licences as gang mistresses to girls of 14. - Mr FRENCH said that, having seen the case, he thought that in the

interests of the public it should be made known that it was contrary to law. The Act was passed mainly for the purpose of
keeping the sexes separate. As it was the first case under the Act which had been brought before the Bench, perhaps the

Magistrates would consider it sufficient if defendant were cautioned and her licence endorsed according to the provisions of
the Act; and he would also ask the Chairman to be good enough to caution defendant not to employ any children under 8 years
of age, as he had an idea that some of the children in defendant's gang were barely that age. - Defendant assured the Bench that

all the children in her gang were of the required age, and left the court with reiterated assurances that she would be very careful
not to offend again.

OVERSEERS OF THE POOR For many years past the public business of the parish of Beccles has been conducted so quietly
that we much question whether some people are aware that there are any duties of importance devolving upon the various
officers. >From time to time notices are affixed to doors of the church and of the chapels announcing that certain meetings in

vestry will be held for certain purposes; but with the exception of the parish officers themselves and only one or two others
who take (very properly) an interest in such matters, the public affairs of the parish are entirely unheeded by the rest of the
parishioners. In the matter of the making of the Poor Rate, which closely affects All who pay the impost, very frequently the

only persons assembled together for this important purpose are so few as only just to make the meeting legal. The appointment
of officers, the expenditure of the public money, and the various matters affecting equally all the rate-payers, are passed by

with apathy and indifference. These matters are treated as unimportant and as mere forms of routine; whereas in truth they are
of the utmost consequence to the interests of the community at large, and their proper administration highly necessary to the

well-being of the parish. Notwithstanding the notice of the meetings we have already mentioned, and still further notice by
advertisement in this paper and by the tolling of the church bell at the appointed hour, the parishioners allow the meetings to

pass over, without recognising them, or appearing as if they concerned others than the parish officers, who, without fee or
remuneration, and one would think even thanks, devote much time and labour for the benefit of their fellow-parishioners. In
another column of this impression there appears an advertisement stating that the annual Meeting in Vestry will be held for the

purpose of nominating Guardians and Overseers of the poor for this Parish, on Thursday next. The present officers are Mr
PELLS, Mr H. READ, Mr R. A. KING, and Mr HORSLEY, in connection with the Churchwardens, who are Overseers by
virtue of their office. The first named of these gentlemen has held the office 13 years, and some of the others about 11. All four

of them are, without question, men of intelligence, integrity, and position, and from their practical knowledge especially
adapted for the duties which have devolved upon them. It may be that the recurrence of the appointment for so many years of
four such overseers, in whose judgement and faithfulness everyone in the parish has or ought to have the highest confidence,

has led somewhat to the apathy we have endeavoured to point out; because the natural inference would be that affairs of the
parish are attended to by them equally as well as if the parishioners themselves interfered....... .....These observations bear with
greater force upon the presen time, because we understand all the overseers have announced their intention of resigning the

office..... .......No doubt there are many persons amongst us well qualified for the office; but it will take a long time for them to
acquire the practical knowledge possessed by those who for so many years have discharged the duties of overseers. We
therefore feel it our duty to urge that there may be a large meeting at the Church on Thursday, and that All - professionals,

tradesmen, and those who are not engaged in business matters - will make some sacrifice of time and personal comfort, and aid
in the appointment of persons suited for taking the places of the retiring officers. For the information of our readers, we may,
perhaps, just mention that in addition to the churchwardens the parish must nominate "four, three, or two other Substantial

householders." There must not be more than four nor less than two. Every substantial householder, with the exception of
"Peers, members of Parliament, clergymen (including Roman Catholic clergy and dissenting ministers, who may serve by
deputy), barristers and attorneys, physicians, surgeons and apothecaries, and commissioners and officers of excise, is

compellable to serve." The term Substantial is necessarily relative, depending in each case, upon the condition in life of the
inhabitants of the parish. A woman can be appointed, and will be compellable to serve. If the inhabitants desire it, and he
whom they choose consent, one who is a rate-payer, but is not a house-holder, can be chosen; but he cannot be compelled to

serve, as a householder can. (See "The Parish." by Toulmin SMITH, of Lincoln's Inn, Barrister-at-law.)

HALESWORTH County Court. March 24.---Before J. WORLLEDGE, Esq., Judge. Henry SPINDLER and David

WESTHORP [sic] v. Henry WALKER and George SPINDLER. Mr READ appeared for the plaintiffs, and stated that his
clients claimed 1 Pound 4 Shillings each, balance of shares for salvage services. Plaintiffs assisted in getting a schooner off the
ground and into harbour. After the work was performed, the defendants, who had to divide the money - 70 Pounds - refused to

pay plaintiffs the same amount that they paid to the other men. His Honour expressed a doubt whether it was not a matter for
admiralty jurisdiction. Mr READ said his Honour was not asked to adjudicate as to the value of the salvage service, but to give
judgment for balance of shares of salvage money. Henry SPINDLER, plaintiff : I am a fisherman, at Thorpe. On Sunday 22nd

December last, I was on the shore at Sizewell. I saw the schooner Portland on shore. The defendants and Mr Joshua CHARD
were there. The defendants got on board the schooner, and made the agreement about getting her off. My brother (defendant
George SPINDLER) told me the agreement they had made with the agent for the vessel and the master to get her afloat and

into a place of safety was 70 Pounds. I helped to get a boat and carry the anchor and chains out to sea, and with the help of
three or four others I laid out the chain. The defendants were on board the schooner whilst I and the boat's crew were carrying

the anchor out. I got aboard the ship and helped at the windlass to heave her off. When the tide rose she came off. I helped to
navigate her to Aldeburgh quay. In reply to his Honour, the defendants admitted having received 70 Pounds. Plaintiff

continued ; No agreement was made as to how much I should have altogether. It was agreed that those who navigated the
vessel from Sizewell to Aldeburgh should have 10 Shillings extra. I understood there were 17 to share the 70 Pounds amongst.

Only about a third of those who assisted were seamen. Others were landsmen. I have received 3 Pounds. The defendants told
me there was nothing more for me, and that I might help myself. Defendant WALKER is a labourer and not a seaman. His
Honour : I see WALKER has a pair of blue trousers on and that he is "got up" like a seaman today. (Laughter). Plaintiff David

WESTHORPE [sic] said : I am a fisherman at Thorpe. I saw the schooner on shore. I assisted in getting her off. I went in the
boat with plaintiff to lay the anchor out. I went and offered my services, and no one objected to me until after the work was
done. I know the plaintiff was engaged. The defendant WALKER asked me to get into the boat and help carry the anchor out. I

have received 10 Shillings. I have asked WALKER for some more money, but he said there was no more coming to me.
George SPINDLER was not there when the ship was got afloat. Joshua CHARD, fisherman and beachman : I went on board
the schooner. I saw plaintiff and WESTHORPE [sic] on board assisting in getting the vessel off while I was there. They

assisted in rigging a stage to get the ballast out. I do not claim anything. I think the two plaintiffs were the two best men there.
The custom of the coast is, if a man goes on board a vessel in distress and makes a bargain for so much for salving her, all who
are really necessary to assist have an equal share with the man making the agreement, and those who navigate the ship to a port

of safety have a proportionate share extra according to the distance they have to go. Ten Shillings extra is a fair allowance in
this case. When we have performed the services we take the money, pay all reasonable expenses and port charges, then call a
meeting of the slalvors and share the money amongst them according to their degree - an able seaman has a full share, an

ordinary seaman a three-quarter share, and a landman half a share. His Honour : What is the difference between an able
seaman and an ordinary seaman ? Witness : Just as much difference as there is between a judge and a lawyer. (Loud laughter).
An able seaman is supposed to be able to navigate a vessel from place to place along the coast. I call both the plaintiffs able

seamen. I also consider the defendant George SPINDLER an able seaman. Mr READ said this was the plaintiffs' case. Henry
WALKER (one of the defendants) : I and George SPINDLER made this agreement (produced) with Mr Newson GARRETT to
get the schooner Portland off shore. We first carried the anchor and warp ashore to secure the vessel until the tide turned. As

soon as I made the agreement with Mr GARRETT, I wrote the list of names out (produced), who were to assist. All on the list
(with the exception of William DANCE ) were present within an hour of the vessel's striking. The agreement was signed about
11 o'clock at night on the 21st December. Henry SPINDLER did not come till two on Sunday afternoon. He was on the beach,

but did not render any assistance. Neither Henry SPINDLER nor David WESTHORPE [sic] assisted in rigging the stage for
the ballast. Henry SPINDLER got into the boat without my orders. His brother said he employed him, so I gave him 50
Shillings for working the vessel off and 10 Shillings for going round to Aldeburgh. I have disposed of the whole 70 Pounds.

(Paper put in with items of payment.) The expenses amounted to 8 Pounds, which left 62 Pounds to divide. That sum was
divided into 15 and 1/2 shares .Henry SPINDLER and WESTHORPE [sic] were not present when the division was made. I
made out the list of names as the men were set to work. I swear I did not employ either of the plaintiffs. Cross examined : We

did nothing until Sunday morning, when we began to heave the ballast. Geo. SPINDLER : I set Henry SPINDLER to work
about eleven o'clock on Sunday morning. I told him he could come to work and help. We had the ballast out then. He assisted

to heave the vessel off,and went to Aldeburgh in her. I did not set WESTHORPE [sic] to work. I did not see him do anything .
I went aboard at eight o'clock on Saturday night and remained until five o'clock on Sunday afternoon, when I went home, got

some victuals, and returned to the vessel again at eight o'clock. Neither of the plaintiffs assisted in rigging the stage to get the
ballast out. His Honour said he should take time to ascertain if he had any jurisdiction, and if he found he had he would give

judgment at the next court.

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS Fatal Accident.---On Monday, about three o'clock p.m., an accident occurred which resulted
in the instantaneous death of William SMITH, aged 52, a labourer in the employ of Miss L. ROWLEY, of Holbeck's Park. The

unfortunate deceased, it appears, was engaged with a fellow labourer, named Abraham MANN, in carting straw from a stack,
and while so engaged, accidentally fell from the tumbril which he was loading, with great violence upon his head, and was
killed upon the spot. At an inquest which was held at the King's Head Inn, on the following day, before G.A. PARTRIDGE,

Esq., coroner, the following evidence was taken : - Abraham MANN, of Hadleigh, labourer, said: On Monday afternoon last, I
was at work with the deceased, loading straw from a stack on to a tumbril. I was on the stack and deceased was on the tumbril.

When we had got part of the load he fell backwards from the tumbril on to his head on the hard ground; his feet were upwards
supported by the straw and he was quite straight. I ran to him directly and found he was quite black in the face. I loosened his

scarf and waistcoat and called for assistance, when two mates came and one ran for a neighbour, who brought some brandy,
but we could get none down his throat. I did not leave him after he fell and he did not move or speak. He was quite sober, and

the pony which was harnessed to the tumbril did not move so as to occasion the accident. The distance deceased fell was not
more than five or six feet. - Mr J.T. MURIEL, surgeon, said: I was sent for about 3.30 on Monday afternoon to go to
Holbeck's, as an accident had occurred there. I went directly, and when I arrived deceased had been dead about a quarter-of-an-

hour. I have known him for years, and saw him last alive about 2 o'clock on the day of the accident. I have never known him to
have a fit or anything of the sort, and he was a very healthy man. I have examined the body externally and find the cause of
death to be fracture of the vertebrae of the neck, occasioned by the fall. Death must have been instantaneous. - The Jury

returned a verdict of "Accidental Death." - The unfortunate deceased, who was a steady and inoffensive man and who has left a
wife and four children to mourn his untimely fate, was one of four brothers and is the third who has met a violent death, one
brother having been accidentally drowned on his voyage to Newfoundland, and the other brother having died from injuries

received in a fight at Layham.

COUNTY COURT Monday, April 20th.---Before John WORLLEDGE, Esq., Judge. The Salvage Cases.---Henry SPINDLER
v. Henry WALKER and George SPINDLER, Thorpe-next-the-Sea. - The claim in this case was 1 Pound 4 Shillings 1 Penny

for the balance of the salvage. David WESTHORPE v. the same defendants. - Claim 3 Pounds 12 Shillings and 4 Pence, under
similar circumstances. The decision in each case was adjourned from the last Court until today, as his Honour was doubtful

whether he had jurisdiction. Judgment was given today as follows: - These actions were brought to recover certain sums
alleged to be due to plaintiffs respectively, as their shares of certain salvage earned by getting the schooner Portland off shore
near Sizewell Gap, and navigating her to Aldborough in safety, which had been received by defendants. The case was fully

heard at the last Court, and I reserved my judgment chiefly in order that I might look into authorities, to see whether this Court
has jurisdiction in such case........but at the trial I had forgotten the "Merchant Shipping Amendment Act, 1862," (25 and 26
Vic., c.63, sec. 49) by which the jurisdiction in salvage cases conferred by part 8 of the Merchant Shipping Act, 1854, upon

two Justices, is extended to all cases in which the value of the property saved does not exceed 1000 Pounds, and is given also
to the County Court......I think I may fairly assume that this Court has jurisdiction to decide the present cases. His honour,
having gone through the evidence given at the trial, proceeded to decide the cases on their merits, saying : With respect to the

plaintiff WESTHORPE I am not satisfied that he was employed by either of the defendants, who, as the parties who made the
bargain with the ship's agent, had in my opinion a perfect right to determine how many and what men should be employed in
the salvage; I think therefore, if WESTHORPE worked at all, he did so as a mere volunteer, and it is clear he was sent ashore

by the defendant (Henry WALKER.) I think therefore WESTHORPE has no legal right to any part of the salvage money. The
vessel then having been brought into a port of safety, the defendants received the 70 Pounds agreed upon, and out of it Henry
WALKER paid what he called the expenses, and of which he produced an account amounting to 8 Pounds, which was thus

made up : 10 Shillings extra each to eight men who navigated the vessel to Aldborough Quay (including plaintiff SPINDLER),
4 Pounds; plaintiff H. SPINDLER, assisting getting the vessel off the beach 2 Pounds 10 Shillings; casual expenses 1 Pound;
David WESTHORPE, 10 Shillings; which left 62 Pounds to be divided, and which Henry WALKER divided into 15 and 1/2

shares of 4 Pounds each, one for his boat, and one for himself, one for George SPINDLER, the other defendant, and one each
for the twelve men engaged, and the half share for the boy, which appears to me to have been a very fair decision; and seeing

that Henry SPINDLER at first refused to assist, and did not actually assist till between 2 and 3 p.m., on December 22nd, I think
the 3 Pounds which he received a fair payment for what he did. And as I am of the opinion that plaintiff WESTHORPE was

never employed by either defendants, he may think himself lucky that he received anything. Upon the whole, therefore, I see
no reason to disturb the division of the salvage money which defendants have made, and therefore give judgment for them in

both actions, but under circumstances, without costs.

BECCLES ....Religious Tract Society.---The annual meeting of the Beccles Branch of this society was held in the Corn Hall on
Wednesday evening. The chair was taken at half-past seven by the Rev John FLOWER. There was not a large attendance. A

hymn having been sung, the chairman read a portion of scripture, after which the Rev Henry STACEY engaged in prayer. -
The Chairman regretted they had not the attendance of representatives of the different religious denominations in the town on
the platform, as they had in the body of the hall. But their absence was owing to the meeting being held on a Wednesday

evening, which was in some respects an inconvenient evening. He then called upon Mr GARRARD to give them some
information of the operations of the society in this town during the past year. Mr GARRARD stated that about 3,000 tracts had
been circulated in the town and adjacent villages, and he had good reason for believing that, by means of them, a great amount

of good had been done. With regard to the finances, they were rather encouraging. Though in the course of the year they had
lost three subscribers they had six new ones. The receipts were 8 Pounds 13 Shillings and 7 Pence, and there had been paid

away 7 Pounds 3 Shillings and 3 Pence, leaving a balance 1 Pound 10 Shillings and 4 Pence. - The chairman and the Rev
Henry STACEY next briefly addressed the meeting. The Rev Edmund CRISP, the deputation from the Parent Society, spoke

for a considerable time of the work of the Society at home and abroad. He read extracts from the Society's last report showing
the extent to which its publications are distributed in the hospitals, workhouses and prisons throughout the kingdom, and the

gratitude expressed by prisoners for the privilege thus afforded them of reading good books during their confinement. He also
described the way in which the Society's tracts and other publications were distributed at the Paris Exhibition last year, and he
briefly referred to its operations in India. The income of the Parent Society for the Past year was 113, 467 Pounds. The total

expenditure 112,323 Pounds. Free grants have been made amounting to 13, 467 Pounds. The number of publications issued
from the Depository during the year is 40,991,763, besides issues from branches in foreign countries. The Honorary Secretaries
of the Society are the Rev Canon CHAMPNEYS, M.A., and the Rev R. VAUGHAN, D.D. At the close of the meeting, a

collection was made in aid of the Society's funds.
.....Poor Rate.----At A Vestry meeting held on Thursday, at which the Rector presided, a rate was made of eight-pence in the

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ....Lucifer Matches Again!----On Tuesday evening last, shortly after seven o'clock, a fire

was discovered proceeding from a stable on the premises of James PAGE, a carter residing in Benton Street, Hadleigh, and
there is no doubt that it was occasioned by the now so frequent use of lucifer matches by children. There is a thoroughfare past
the stable, and shortly before the fire broke out some children were seen to run from that direction, and two lucifer matches

were found near the burning building. Fortunately no extensive damage was done, but PAGE had some difficulty in getting his
horse from the stable without injury, and much of the harness was destroyed. The property, we understand, is uninsured, and it
is fortunate, from the close proximity of other old buildings and cottages, that the fire was quickly discovered.

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ....Burning A Ghost In Effigy.----At about nine on Saturday night several hundreds of
persons assembled at Ashfield-green in Wickhambrook, to witness the burning in effigy of a ghost which had been caught on
the proceeding Monday night by a butcher. On the 23rd December last the wife of Edward SMITH died suddenly, and since

that time it has been rumoured that the deceased woman has many times revisited her last abode, and her son, with his wife and
child, who had since her death lived with his father, left their abode about a fortnight ago, in order to evade the nightly visits of
the sprite, and no amount of reasoning could dissipate the fear that some supernatural agency was at work against them. Many

of their neighbours have also been much frightened by the apparition, and have been afraid to leave their dwellings after dark,
but on Monday, the 11th May, between 11 and 12 at night, Mr James PRYKE, a butcher, had the temerity to give it chase, and
the ghost, on finding its pursuer gaining ground vanished behind a hedge at the entrance to the occupation of Mr J.H. PRYKE.

On overtaking it, and finding it a neighbour's wife, Mr PRYKE quietly retreated. The inhabitants being disgusted at the
conduct of the woman prepared an effigy which they carried on a pole for about three hours, and then consigned it to a bonfire,
of 30 or 40 faggots, prepared on a field in the occupation of Mr R. GOODWIN, opposite Mr J. PRYKE's mill.

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. The Artisans And Labourers Dwellings Bill. Economist.----The Artisans and Labourers

Dwellings Bill, which the House of Lords sent on Tuesday to a Select Committee, not to kill but to improve it, is the first in a
series which is likely to be a long one. It is an attempt to attack one of the most serious evils in our civilisation, the disgraceful
manner in which a large section of our labouring poor are housed. The price of house-room in the great cities, and more

especially in London, has increased with the increase of their population, until the poorest sort of labourers, the men who can
earn from 12 Shillings to 18 Shillings a week, are wholly unable to pay the sum demanded for lodgings of any decent kind.
That sum is usually one-third of their incomes, and if the family is large, even more, and the labourer is tempted to reduce it by

every possible device. Either he retreats to a room so unsafe, ill-provided, or unhealthy, that it is let cheap, or he takes in
lodgers, who pay a portion of the landlord's demand. Usually he adopts the second device, first, because it enables him to live
nearer to his work; and secondly - it is useless to deceive ourselves upon the point - he is not yet civilised enough to care

greatly for those decencies to which the higher classes attach a primary importance. He is in this respect just like an Asiatic,
who sees no reason of any kind why an entire family should not sleep in one room, and will do so even when he has two or
three. The agricultural labourers, for example, who obtain cottages at low rents, frequently crowd them as full as the worst

lodging houses of East London. The consequence in great cities is that small, rotten, or otherwise cheap houses, near the
centres of work, are found crammed to the roof with families who set all sanitary rules, all household decencies, and some
usually powerful instincts, equally at defiance; who disregard all ties of relationship, and live, as Lord CHELMSFORD said,

like animals, or, as the Bishop of London still more forcibly puts it, like vermin. The landlords or lessees of such houses, very
often poor men, spend as little as possible upon repairs, dig no cesspools, open no drains, supply no water, and leave as few
windows for light and air as they possibly can, windows being conveniences which will break. Such houses become, of course,

centres of disease, depots where certain forms of fever are stored up to await the first hot day, when they spread far beyond the
"rookery" where they were originally generated. It is essential that the State, as guardian of the lives of its subjects, should

abolish these pest-houses, and expedient that it should, so far as possible, compel a more civilised mode of life. No landlord
can have a moral right to let a house in a state unfit for human habitation any more than he can have a right to sell poison at his

own discretion, because it is profitable. He is bound either to see that the article he sells is innocuous to the community, or to
abstain from selling it, and can no more plead his right of property against the Legislature than a chemist could plead his right

of property in arsenic or prussic acid. He is bound to obey the laws regulating the public health, and is bound also - thought
this is a much more difficult question - to take heed that his conduct does not lower the general level of morality. The right of
the Legislature, to suppress overcrowding on moral grounds is, in principle, identical with its right to suppress indecent

publications, both alike being based on its right to protect its citizens from artificial temptations to evil. The house of
Commons accordingly has passed without a division a Bill, which has also found favour in the Lords, and which is intended as
first blow at the "rookeries" of our great cities. Under this Bill, whenever a house is condemned by competent medical

authority as unfit for human habitation, the "local authority" - that is the Board of Health, or Commission, or Town Council, or
Vestry - may direct the owner to make the necessary improvements. If he declines, the local authority may order the house to
be closed, or may purchase it on a valuation and rebuild, or may delegate its right of so doing to a speculator in houses. There

are dozens of other provisions; but this is the main one, that a landlord may be compelled to choose between allowing his
tenantry habitable accommodation and selling his property to someone who will. This principle is obviously sound, and would
seem strong enough to secure the end desired; but there are difficulties of detail in the way, of such a character that unless they

are removed the Act may prove almost a dead letter. In the first place, the Bill gives no security that the "local authority" will
not be entirely in the hands of petty landlords - the class which, of all others, seeks most for municipal office; and in that case
the Act will either be inoperative, or will be used to secure high prices for worthless property - a minor but still serious evil. In

the second place, the Act provides no fund for the work beyond a 2 Pence rate, which will we fear, be insufficient as well as
unpopular, and will compel the local authority to adopt one of two expedients. Either they will delegate their right to a builder,
or they will exert their alternative power of closing the houses altogether. In the former case the builder is pretty certain to look

to profit, and put up rooms a little too good for the poor, thus increasing the overcrowding elsewhere; and in the second, the
population must be expelled very often by sheer force. It is true the owner will, in the second case, have every temptation to

sell to a wealthier man, because he wants income; but then the wealthier man has no temptation to build for the very poor, who
pay so badly and give so much trouble. Again, as Lord PORTMAN suggested in his somewhat bitter speech, the Bill does not

in any way prevent overcrowding, for a house may be in a perfectly habitable state for four people, and quite uninhabitable for
fourteen. Upon the whole, we are inclined to hope that the Bill will pass as an experimental law, but doubt if the experiment

will be very greatly successful.....The present Bill may work very well in Liverpool, or Manchester, or Norwich, where local
authority is very strong, and it is possible to extend the area to be built on; but we fear it will prove inadequate to its great
object - the more decent housing of the poor of the Metropolis.

All went on well until about mid-day on Thursday, when they had reached the depth of 46 feet, the earth and brickwork
suddenly gave way, and buried the young man in about 25 feet of soil and bricks. It is feared some time will elapse before the

body can be extricated. Mr Geo. [sic] KERSEY had a narrow escape as he was coming out of the well just at the time, and had
scarcely reached the top, when it gave way. Every exertion is being made to recover the body. Men were employed during the

night, and up to 12 o'clock on Friday the body had not been recovered.

EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS ....Fatal Accident.----Passing from the Crown Hotel, at Diss, to the Roydon-road there is a
dangerously narrow piece of road, about midway of which there is a kind of square consisting of artisans' and labourers'
cottages, the entrance from the square to the road being very abrupt. On Saturday evening a child about two years of age,

named Florence BROWN, daughter of Mr Thomas BROWN, power-loom weaver at Mr R. ALDRICH's cocoa matting
manufactory, suddenly ran from the square into the road, when she was knocked down and ran over by a timber drag which
was passing at the time. The poor child's head was crushed and she was internally injured, and died in about two hours. An

inquest was held at the Cherry Tree Inn on Monday, before E. PRESS, Esq., when Solomon READ, ostler at the Cherry Tree,
who witnessed the accident, said there was not the slightest blame attached to any one, and a verdict in accordance with the
facts was returned. At the suggestion of Mr R. BURROWS (foreman), the jury kindly subscribed 7 Shillings and 6 Pence for

the sorrowing parents, and a further sum of 1 Pound 10 Shillings was collected by Mr FELSTEAD, foreman at Mr
ALDRICH's factory. Mr BROWN has only recently come to work at Diss, and the deceased was one of a family of five, all
under seven years of age.

ALARMING FIRE AT DISS On Friday morning se'nnight, about one o'clock, the inhabitants of Diss were aroused from their
slumbers by cries of "Fire!" and the ringing of the fire bells, and in about half an hour the streets were thronged by people,

hastily dressed, on their way to the scene of the conflagration. The east side of Crown Street, from the Baptist Chapel to Mr
SMITH's chemist shop at the corner, is occupied by Messrs HEYWOOD (blacksmiths), DOVE (watchmaker), Bullock
(cooper), and J. EVANS (currier), their respective dwelling houses and shops forming a line fronting the street. At the back are

a number of buildings, including Mr HEYWOOD's workshop, Mr BULLOCK's cooperage, a large warehouse in the
occupation of Mrs COPEMAN, cabinet maker, whose house and show rooms are on the opposite side of the street, two or
three stables in the occupation of Messrs ESLING, Mr BULLOCK, and others, and Mr EVANS's currier's shop and drying

sheds. Most of these buildings were constructed of very inflammable materials, and this fact, coupled with their exceedingly
dry condition in consequence of the long drought, excited great fears of a sweeping destruction of property. Further, the angle

of Crown Street and St Nicholas Street is former by Mr SMITH's chemist shop and wooden buildings at the back, these being
continued more or less along the south side of St Nicholas Street. It only required a strong south or south west wind, and a dark

night to have realised the worst forebodings of the inhabitants. Happily, there was but a slight breeze, and with a tolerable
sized moon and day just breaking at the time the fire broke out, there was sufficient light to admit the work of extinguishing

the fire to be carried on with promptitude and certainty. Sergeant SEWTER was on duty in Mount Street, and was one of the
first to discover the fire, and promptly summoned the fire brigade, who got the fire engine to the spot as quickly as possible.
The nearest supply of water was the moat at Mr T.L. TAYLOR's brewery, a distance of about 100 yards. Here the engine was

stationed and the pumps speedily set to work ; but, as is too often the case, the hose was found to be in a very imperfect
condition, and some time elapsed before any amount of water could be thrown on the burning mass. The fire broke out in Mr
BULLOCK's cooperage, adjoining which is his stable, and a pony standing therein was burnt to death. Mr FULCHER, of the

Beehive Inn, with praiseworthy energy, attempted to liberate the poor animal, but its terror on finding itself surrounded by
flames caused it to cling to the place of its destruction. Mr FULCHER, however, rendered good service by procuring a hand
saw and cutting off the communication with the dwelling house. Mr J. ALDRICH also rendered effectual service by directing

the work of one of SHALDER's portable fire engines, procured from Mr TAYLOR's brewery ; and the saving of Mr EVANS's
currier's shop may be attributed to Mr ALDRICH's efforts. In Mr ESLING's stable was a valuable mare, which Mr PEARCE,
shoemaker, and Mr ANDREWS, watchmaker, succeeded in getting out at considerable risk to themselves. Mrs COPEMAN's

furniture warehouse had been filled only the day before with a consignment of valuable goods, a quantity of which was
completely destroyed and we regret to add that she will be a considerable sufferer, in consequence of the stock being only
partially insured. Mr BULLOCK's loss is estimated at about 100 Pounds, and was not covered at all by insurance. Mr EVANS

was insured to the full amount of his loss. In addition to the damage done by the fire, the furniture of Messrs EVANS,
BULLOCK and DOVE was materially injured by its hasty removal. The efforts of the fire brigade were well supplemented by
the hearty and prompt co-operation of hundreds of the inhabitants, who formed themselves into a double line from the burning

premises to the moat, and several thousands of gallons of water were thus conveyed ; both young and old, men and women,
labouring with a good will, which it was pleasing to witness. It would be invidious to name particular individuals, but the
energy and sustained efforts of Messrs Frederick HAMMOND and James HARRISON in handing water from the moat, and

that of Messrs Walter BURROWS and G. ARCHER, at the fire itself, were beyond all praise. A volunteer fire brigade was
formed on the instant its necessity was realised. The appearance of the fire form the Park fields and the Mere was weird and
sublime ; the moon shining in the south, the day breaking in the east, with the glimmer of the flames through the foliage of the

trees, made up a spectacle which will not be soon forgotten. Taken into account the surroundings of the locality of the fire, it
may considered extremely fortunate that thousands of pounds worth of property was not destroyed. The fire is supposed to
have been purely accidental. On Sunday, about noon, the fire again broke out, but was extinguished by a few pails of water.

EIGHTEEN HOUSES DESTROYED BY FIRE AT STOWMARKET. On Sunday morning, the 12th, at about eleven o'clock,

one of the most destructive fires that have taken place in Suffolk for many years broke out in Bury-street, Stowmarket, and
raged for four hours with so much fury that before it was mastered no less than thirteen houses on the west side of the street,

and five on the east side, were totally destroyed. The fire first commenced in a cottage, situate near the Carpenter's Arms, on
the east side of the street, and occupied by W. EASLING. It had a thatched roof, the adjoining cottages towards the north side

being also thatched, whilst the Carpenter's Arms, on the other side, though a slated building, was built with stud work, lath and
plastered. A narrow gateway divided this from two houses, the property of Mr GUDGEON, one used as an office and the other

tenanted by Mr W. TURNER. On the opposite side of the street the houses were nearly all thatched. At about eleven o'clock it
was noticed that some sparks were coming out of EASLING's chimney ; whether it was on fire, or whether they were burning
some light wood is not known, but a minute or so afterwards the roof was seen to be in flames which spread with great

rapidity, owing to the dryness of the thatch. An alarm was instantly given to all parts of the town, causing no little confusion in
the several places of worship. The fire bell at the church sent out its summons and in a few minutes the ministers conducting
the services brought them to a close. Mounted messengers were sent off to the neighbouring parishes, at Buxhall the service

was stopped, and the fire brigade with their engine, under the superintendence of Mr William POULTER, started off and were
in the town almost as soon as the town engine could be got ready. R.J. PETTIWARD, Esq., of Finboro' Park sent his private
engine as well as some of the "Extincteurs," in one of his fastest travelling vehicles, and also came himself, working as hard as

any member of the brigade. The Woolpit Coombs and Needham engines were also soon in the town, but it was a considerable
time before a supply of water could be got, a line of persons being formed all down Bury-street, round the road past the mill
down to the river, so that by passing pails of water along they managed to keep one of the engines at work. Mr John PHILLIPS

thoughtfully set his pump working at the Artesian well in his brewery ; the Woolpit engine was placed at the back and pumped
the water to Union-street, whence it was sent to Bury-street by the Needham engine, and thence it was sent by the Buxhall
engine to the Coombs engine, which again forwarded it to the working engine. While all these preparations were going on the

fire destroyed the houses on the east side, respectively occupied by ADAMS, W. EASLING, WORLLEDGE, TRUDGETT,
and MARKWELL, but a party consisting of several persons had in the meantime set to work, and by great exertions pulled the
end of the Carpenter's Arms house down before the fire touched Mr TURNER's house, which was preserved by the application

of wet blankets, counterpanes etc A stiff north-easterly wind was blowing at the time, and the thatched houses up and down the
street were soon on fire in such manner that all attempts to put them out were utterly useless ; the only thing to be done was to

cut through them at either end, and thus stop the progress of the fire. This was effectually done, and by this means the fire was
ultimately got under [sic], but not before thirteen houses had been completely destroyed. The occupiers of the houses were all

poor people, and there were only three houses in which there were no children. To see the poor creatures making fruitless
efforts to rescue their goods, with the fire at their doors and over their heads, was a pitiable sight ; women running to and fro

carrying away their babies, whilst others were assisting to get out the furniture ; but the majority were unable to save anything
beyond a few chairs and here and there a bed. One woman, who had lost everything, said her husband had just gone away for
his harvest and she did not know where to send for him. Another, on asking Messrs DAWSON Brothers' manager (Mr

FOOTTILL) for a room to sleep in, said, "I have seven little children under thirteen years of age, and all I have is one bed."
The engines played on the smouldering embers until eight o'clock, and entirely extinguished what little fire remained. The
cottages were partly insured.

United States. It was dated the 6th August, and was received the following morning at 11 o'clock, thus occupying only a few

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ....Death From Drinking Rum.----A melancholy death from excessive drinking occurred on
Friday at Brome, near Eye. A man named Charles CRAWFORD, in the employ of Mr E.B. MARSH, and who has served as a

soldier in India, left his home for the harvest field, after quarrelling with his wife, and vowed he would never return. In the
course of the morning, a bottle of rum was sent for by the deceased and the men with whom he was working, which was drunk

amongst them. CRAWFORD boasted that he could drink more rum than the others could of beer, and a sort of wager was laid
on the question, a man named HARPER telling CRAWFORD that if he could drink a bottle of rum he would pay for it.

Another man named Thomas BETTS then fetched a second bottle of rum from the Swan inn, and when BETTS returned
deceased snatched the bottle out of his hand, drew the cork, and drunk half the rum. HARPER then snatched the bottle out of
CRAWFORD's hand and gave it to a man named John LEEDER, whereupon deceased again seized the bottle and drank the

remainder of the rum, and then went to pick up a scythe, saying "I can mow." LEEDER took the scythe from deceased, who
ran about ten yards and then fell down. He was picked up and laid in the shade, and was left there about half-past one. He laid
there till three o'clock, when the men went to look at him and found him black in the face, and after throwing cold water on his

face he rallied somewhat, but was unable to speak. At half-past four he was taken home, and Dr MILLER of Eye was sent for,
who used every means to counteract the effect of the rum without avail, and the poor fellow expired about eight o'clock in the
evening. An inquest was held at the Swan inn on Saturday afternoon, before F.B. MARRIOTT, Esq., coroner, when a verdict

that deceased died from the effects of alcoholic poison was returned. Deceased was twenty-eight years of age, and left a widow
and one child.

EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS ....Balloon Ascent.----At the request of many gentlemen of the city of Norwich, Mr
SIMMONS, the aeronaut, who made a pleasant, though short aerial voyage from the Green Hill Gardens a week ago, ascended

from the Market-place in his balloon on Thursday afternoon. When it became known that Mr SIMMONS intended to make a
second ascent, the Market-place was soon crowded with people, hundreds of whom waited patiently all day while the balloon
was being inflated. When everything was got ready for a start, Mr SIMMONS, to indulge the curiosity of scores of people,

allowed them to make excursions to the height of a few hundred feet, at a reasonable fare. About six o'clock, when the Market-
place was densely crowded with spectators, Mr SIMMONS released the balloon and proceeded upon his uncertain voyage,

accompanied by Mr MARIS, fruiterer. The ascent from the Market-place, according to the account of both Mr SIMMONS and
Mr MARIS, was magnificent. In two minutes the balloon attained an altitude of 10,000 feet. Mr MARRIS [sic], who

conducted himself, says Mr SIMMONS, like an old voyager, was delighted with the immense bird's-eye view spread out
before him. About a minute after the balloon shot from the earth, the aeronauts had a bird's-eye view of the whole county of

Norfolk, whose configuration they could see as distinctly as though they were gazing upon the map. Mr SIMMONS pointed
out to his astonished passenger the various towns and villages dotted over the country, viz., Yarmouth, Lowestoft, Wangford,
Halesworth, Eye, Framlingham, Saxmundham, Aylsham, in fact every place of importance from Lynn Deeps to Harwich.

During the journey, which was in the direction of Cromer, the voyagers distinctly heard confused noises proceeding from
below, amongst which they could distinguish the barking of dogs, and lowing of cattle, the shouting of men, and the constant
hum of threshing machines. These sounds soon gave place to that of the surge of the ocean, and Mr SIMMONS informed his

companion that if the voyage was to continue two minutes longer the descent would have to be made into the sea. Accordingly
he at once descended towards mother earth, but when within a few yards of the ground he found that the balloon was drifting
towards a plantation of oaks. Seeing that if an attempt were not instantaneously made to land, both himself and companion

would be taken over the sea, Mr SIMMONS ordered Mr MARIS to leap out, which he did without a moment's hesitation
simultaneously with Mr SIMMONS. Lightened of its passengers, the balloon reascended with great rapidity, and sailed
towards the sea, in which it was shortly after observed to fall by some Sherringham fishermen, at the distance of 2 1/2 miles

from land. Nothing was left for Mr SIMMONS and his companion but to return to Norwich, which they did the same night, but
not one tithe so quick as they left it, the journey from Norwich to Bressingham, where they alighted, occupying only fifteen
minutes. Bressingham is a small village eight miles beyond Aylsham, and five miles south-west of Cromer. Nothing has been

heard of the balloon since it was seen to fall into the sea at Sherringham. It is suggested that in the event of the balloon not
being recovered, some tangible token of sympathy should be given to Mr SIMMONS for his great loss.

LOWESTOFT ....Shipwrecked Mariner's Society.----Wm. [sic] H. HOOK, of Pakefield, who was wrecked in the brig Julia , of
Sunderland, on the 25th July last, off St Ives, in the British Channel, owing to the spontaneous combustion of the cargo (Welsh
coals), has been awarded, through William COLE, Esq., the honorary agent at this port, the sum of 2 Pounds 7 Shillings and 6

Pence, for loss of clothes. The crew had only just time to launch the boat before the vessel was blown up. They landed at
Newquay, where HOOK remained nine days under medical treatment, being much burnt and injured by the explosion. He was
then removed to the infirmary at Truro, and after sixteen days was forwarded home by this excellent institution..... ....Petty

Sessions. Wednesday, September 9.---Before Rev R.C. DENNY (chairman), Wm. [sic] JECKS and G.J. LARKMAN, Esqrs.
....Assault.---Catherine IMPERT was charged with assaulting Ann, the wife of Matthew CHAPMAN, steam tug master, on the
2nd September. Filthy words, slapping the face with a fish, kicking legs, pulling hair, etc, formed the assault and counter-

assault. The defendant acknowledged she kicked complainant's legs but it was only to make her let go of her hair. The
chairman said the Bench were of the opinion defendant had committed an assault for which she would have to pay 15 Shillings

including costs. A week was given for payment, but she didn't appear to see her way clear of doing so in that time.

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. ....The Marriage Law Report. "Standard, " September 9.---Bachelors and spinsters, widows and

widowers, who are contemplating a change from single blessedness to the holy estate of matrimony, ought to feel very greatly
indebted to the Royal commissioners on the laws of marriage for the pains they have taken in preparing a report which informs
them in how many ways it is possible for two to be made one in different parts of the United Kingdom. We quite agree with

the opinion which is unreservedly adopted by the commission, that a good marriage law ought to combine the maxima of
simplicity and certainty....Seven-ninths of all marriages in this country take place at church, and, with very rare exceptions, the
knot is tied so tightly that naught but gross misconduct and the decree of the Judge Ordinary can undo it. Dissenters have

ample opportunity of marrying at their own places of worship, and those who like to secularise everything can go the registrar's
office and make their bargain with as little show of sentiment or poetry as if they were buying a horse in a market overt, or
transferring stock at the Bank of England. Marriages between persons of different denominations may be celebrated without let

or hindrance, and any existing differences relate rather to preliminaries and incidentals than to matters of real importance. At
church you may "put up the banns" or take out a license, which costs 4 Pounds 8 Shillings and 6 Pence, solemnisation
included. For marriages at chapel, a notice suspended in some conspicuous place in the office of the registrar does duty for the

banns, and such as like to pay for a license may get one from the official for 2 Pounds and 10 Shillings. But at church the
presence of the clergyman is sufficient to give a civil efficacy to the religious rite, while at chapel the registrar is the important
person, and the officiating minister is a mere lay figure. The alterations suggested by the commissioners relate chiefly to the

abolition of these distinctions........

EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS ....A Gallant Rescue.---At about half-past eight o'clock on Monday night four men
belonging to the steamer Eider, the property of Messrs CLARKE and REEVE, of Yarmouth, were engaged in weighing the

kedge anchor. The steamer was moored near the Newcastle wharf, south-end, and the men were in a small boat. Through some
mischance the boat heeled over and all the men were precipitated into the river. Only one sailor could swim - the mate, and he
managed to save himself. Notwithstanding the darkness that then prevailed, a noble fellow, named Samuel HORTH, steward of

the Buccleuch, sprang from the steamer into the stream in order to save his drowning comrades. The river was somewhat
luminous, and this aided him in his efforts. He grasped the carpenter just as he was sinking, and another man, bringing them
both to the shore. George CHAFFER, a young man of 28, whose wife has just been confined, was drowned. A subscription for

the widow is being raised. The praiseworthy conduct of HORTH well deserves to be brought under the notice of the Royal
Humane and other societies, which take cognisance of deeds of daring.

EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS ....Caution.---On Saturday a marriage was celebrated at Mundesley between Richard NEAL
and Emma CLARK. The wedding feast was held at the house of the bride's father, in Mundesley, and during the evening,

Joseph REYNOLDS, in company with other friends of the married couple, by way of a joke, and to salute the wedding party,
placed a gun, which was charged with powder and leather wadding, to the keyhole of the door, fired the same, and the wadding
seriously injured the bridegroom so that he has been obliged to keep his bed. We are glad to learn, however, that he is

recovering. ........Sudden Death.---An inquest was held on Monday, at the Victoria public-house, Union-place, Norwich, on the
body of an old man named John RISING, who had lodged there. The deceased, it seems, went to bed on Saturday night about
eleven o'clock. Another man slept in the same bed, and three other persons in the same room. The man who slept with the

deceased got up and left the house about seven o'clock the next morning, shortly after which it was discovered that RISING
was dead. A post-mortem examination was made on Monday by Mr DRAKE and another medical man, when it was found that
the deceased's heart was diseased, which was the cause of death. The jury returned a verdict of "Died from disease of the

heart."
Restoration Of Church Register And Brasses.---The Rector of Thuxton, through the kindness of friends, has been put in
possession of the following valuable property belonging to the parish church which had been lost sight of for a long period of

time, and which has now been recovered through the generous exertions of the Rev W. GRIGSON, G.A. CARTHEW, Esq.,
and R. FITCH, Esq., (Sheriff [sic] of Norwich): - An ancient parish register of births, marriages and deaths, commencing A.D.
1538, and three ancient brasses belonging to monumental slabs in the church. The inscriptions are as follows: -one in old

English characters: -
Here lyeth the bodye of John FUTTER lat [sic] of Thuxston [sic] Gentellman who deperted this present world the xiii Day of
Jenuarye A'.1572 and wase buryed the xviii day of ye same month whose soule god for his Mercye send a ioyfull [sic]

Two, in later English, are evidently intended to record in rhyme the virtues of the deceased: -

HAIL STORM IN NORFOLK A thunder and hail storm of extreme violence passed over the northern part of Norfolk on

Sunday last. Dr SUMPTER, writing from Cley-next-the Sea, says: - One of the most, if not the most terrific hail-storm that
ever happened, passed over this locality on Sunday morning. There is scarcely a window facing the south-west, where the
storm came, but is literally smashed. I have scarcely a whole pane of glass in the front of my house, and my conservatory is

demolished "in toto," the grapes being cut from their stalk, and the stalks from the tree. Great damage is done to fruit trees, and
the vegetables and flowers are destroyed, out-door melons, marrows, and cucumbers being cut from their stalks as cleanly as if
the gardener's knife had been at work with ruthless energy. In the turnip fields all the turnip tops are entirely stripped of their

leaves and the very hedges and trees wear quite a wintery [sic] look, the petiole and midrib of every leaf being denuded of its
covering. The large window of our church, the architectural beauty of which has been so much admired, was demolished in a
moment, an eye witness inside the church telling me that the broken glass, mingled with hailstones, came in like a white cloud.

The hail storm was accompanied by a rushing wind, the awful violence of which was grand in the extreme. The rectory
windows were shattered and Cley Hall has not escaped the general ruin. The Wesleyan Chapel adjoining my house is rendered
unfit for public worship, sacks are obliged to be nailed across the sashes to keep the wind and weather out. The hail stones

were of the most extraordinary size - one (not an agglomeration of many) measured three inches in circumference - most of the
hailstones being the size of marbles. My man servant barrowed three loads of stones out of my back yard and kitchen. I am

thankful to say no lives were lost, though several severe cuts from falling glass have come under my notice. Several partridges
were killed, and I have no doubt much damage to the smaller feathered creation has been done......

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ....Longevity.---A few days ago, Mr John LARGENT, of Wickham Market, who is upwards
of 102 years old, walked from that place to Maresford to attend the funeral of an old steward, and walked back to Wickham

Market, a total distance of four miles. ....Suicide.---On Saturday, an inquest was held at the Lion Inn, Hadleigh, before G.A.
PARTRIDGE, Esq., coroner, touching the death of Robert BRADBROOK, who committed suicide on the day previous under
the following circumstances: - It appears the deceased, who was 82 years of age, was, at the time of his death, a recipient of Dr

PYKENHAM's charity in this town, and up to the time of his wife's death, resided with her in one of the almshouses in George
Street. The deceased had for some years been in an imbecile state, and on the death of his wife he was allowed by the Trustees
of the Charity to reside with his daughter at Red Hill instead of in the almshouses as heretofore, in order that she might have

more direct charge over him. On Friday morning, during the temporary absence of the daughter, deceased was seen to enter a
hovel adjoining the cottage by an old man named KISTRICK, who is 81 years of age, and what afterwards occurred is better
told in his own words, which are as follows: - " I seed Master BRADBROOK go into the 'hobble,' and I thought there was

summat up wi' he, as he shut the door behind he, and I went as fast as I could to the 'hobble,' and when I got there I seed he
setting down loike with a rope around his neck; I couldn't lift he up, as I be'ant strong enough, and I couldn't reach to untie the
rope, and I couldn't cut it cos I hadn't got a knife, and so I went and got assistance, and his daughter com'd and he was cut

down, and we sent for the doctor." The feelings and actions of this aged, deaf, and infirm old man, on seeing the position of his
neighbour, may readily be imagined from his description. T.B. ATKINS, Esq., surgeon, was promptly in attendance, but life
was quite extinct on his arrival. The jury, after hearing evidence to the above effect, and aided by their personal knowledge of

the deceased, immediately returned a verdict "That he committed suicide being at the time in an unsound state of mind."

SHIPWRECKED FISHERMEN AND MARINERS' ROYAL BENEVOLENT SOCIETY, (Supported by Voluntary

Contributions.} "Perils Of The Seas." There can be no more satisfactory evidence of the usefulness of a public charity than that
which the details of its administration supply. The number of persons relieved from its exchequer, with a statement of the
circumstances that necessitated such relief, are naturally the most prominent items in each annual report of its management.......

We all know there is a vast amount of distress in the world, but there are special cases in which that distress is severely
aggravated, and hence the advantages resulting from what may be termed a "speciality" in some of our institutions. We are
wont to classify such under distinctive titles, so that the avowed object for which they were established may be better known,

and relief be more immediately afforded. For an illustration of this special class of charitable institutions there is none that
effects a greater amount of personal relief under the most trying and painful circumstances than does the Shipwrecked
Mariners' Society, and as such it maintains an undisputed title to the support and sympathy of the whole nation. Facts are the

best exponents of a report, because they realise all the conditions on which the usefulness of a public charity depends, and
these facts show that during the past year 7,520 shipwrecked men, and 3,969 widows and orphans, making together 11, 489
persons, were relieved from the funds of this institution in the hour of their greatest extremity. The number is indeed appalling,

but nevertheless it proves the elasticity of public benevolence, and while we cannot do otherwise than deplore the occurrence
of so many casualties in a single year at sea we must congratulate ourselves on the existence of such a society as this, and its

capacity to grapple with and alleviate the miseries and misfortunes of so many of our fellow creatures.....As the funds of the
institution are getting low through this extraordinary drain, and the storms of winter are gradually approaching, we do hope

that old friends will still uphold the cause......We may add that contributions in aid of the Funds will be thankful received by
Mr Robert JARMAN, Old Market, Beccles, the honorary representative of this Society at Beccles.

BUNGAY Petty Sessions. Thursday, November 5.---Before Richard MANN and Richard Day FRENCH, Esqrs. Larcenies.---

Frederick GREY, labourer, charged with stealing, at Bungay, on the 2nd November, a calico shirt, the property of William
FRANCIS, of Bungay, labourer, pleaded guilty, and as he had been previously convicted was sentenced to weeks [sic] hard
labour. Charles CHENERY and Edward CALVER, labourers, Wortwell, were charged with stealing, at Southelmham St Cross,

on the 4th November, a cockerel and a pullet, the property of Mr William MEEN, farmer. Mr William MEEN said : I had
twelve fowls of a particular breed on my premises yesterday. At About 12 o'clock at noon, I saw the prisoners standing in a

shed in my stack-yard, and as it was raining fast at the time, I thought they had gone in to take shelter, as they do not work for
me. The fowls are accustomed to go into this shed. After I had been to my barn, I returned to the shed and found that the

prisoners had left. I saw a number of chickens' feathers upon the ground outside the shed, and suspecting that the prisoners had
robbed me, I went in pursuit, and found them in the Fox public house, selling herrings. I asked CHENERY if he had not got

some fowls belonging to me, he said "No." I then asked him to show me what he had got in his pocket, but he refused, as he
said he had nothing of mine. He afterwards said if I would go into the road with him he would show me. This I declined to do,
and sent for Mr NEWSON, the parish constable. When he came, CHENERY took a cockerel and pullet out of his pocket and

threw them down. Mr NEWSON took them up, and I identified them as mine. The prisoner CALVER said that he
(CHENERY) bought them of his uncle. Robert NEWSON, of Southelmham St Cross, parish constable, said : I was sent for to
go to the Fox public house yesterday. I went, and on going into the house saw the last witness and the prisoners. I said to

CHENERY "Have you got anything belonging to Mr MEEN?" he said "No" I then said "Young man, take my advice, if you
have anything belonging to Mr MEEN bring it forward." He stood a few minutes, and then said "I have got something of Mr
MEEN's." He then unbuttoned his coat, and took two fowls out of his pocket, which Mr MEEN said were his. I took the

prisoners into custody, and when policeman BARNARD came, I delivered them and the fowls into his charge. Policeman
Robert BARNARD said : I received into custody, from the last witness, yesterday, the two prisoners and two fowls, which I
now produce. When I charged CHENERY with having stolen them from Mr MEEN's he said "I know that." The other prisoner

said "I did not steal them, and I weren't there when they were got. I had been on an errand to Flixton, and as I was returning
past Mr MEEN's I saw CHENERY in the shed, he called me to him, and I went to him." The prisoners, after being duly
cautioned, elected to have the case settled by the magistrates, when CHENERY pleaded guilty, and CALVER not guilty. The

Bench convicted CHENERY, and sentenced him to 21 days hard labour, but acquitted CALVER, with a caution.

Esplanade, Kirtley, lodging-house keeper, was charged with having, on the 17th September 1839, at the parish of St Peter
Mancroft, Norwich, married one Martha HAWKES, spinster, and afterwards and while she was living, married one Jane
WALPOLE, at the parish Church of South Lynn All Saints, on the 29th August, 1843. Mr STANLEY appeared for the

prosecution, and Mr SPARROW for the defendant. Mr STANLEY addressed the Bench, and said it was not his intention to go
then into the facts of the case, but simply to call witnesses as to the marriages and put in the certificates. They had simply to
enquire whether bigamy had actually been committed, and if so, there would be no alternative but to send the case for trial.

Inspector JEFFERIES deposed to receiving and executing a warrant upon the defendant, at his residence above named, on
Wednesday last. James GILL, of St Lawrence, Norwich, shopkeeper, said he knew defendant previous to his marriage with
Martha HAWKES. He was present at the wedding, which took place in the parish church of St Peter's Mancroft, in the month

of September, 1839. Mr STANLEY was about handing in the marriage certificate, when Mr SPARROW objected, as it was not
dated, nor had the stamp been cancelled as required by the Act of Parliament. Mr STANLEY admitted that the objection was

fatal. He had endeavoured to obtain another from the incumbent but had been disappointed. The case was then adjourned until
11 a.m. of Monday the 9th November.

EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS ......Charge of Bigamy.---At the Worship-street police-court, London, on Thursday, the 29th
October, William Robert GOODWIN, aged 38, was charged before Mr NEWTON with feloniously intermarrying with Sarah
Ann HOY, his first wife, Eliza HOPKINS, being then and now alive. Mr LEWIS, solicitor, conducted the prosecution. From

the evidence it appeared that in August, 1849, the prisoner was married in the name of BYGRAVE to Eliza HOPKINS, at the
parish church of Aylsham, in Norfolk. Five years afterwards, his wife returned to her father's, and since then she had not
cohabited with him. In the month of May, 1866, the prisoner was married at St Leonard's, Shoreditch, to Sarah Ann HOY, who

was then not 19 years of age. She lived with him until August, 1867, when having received information that the prisoner had a
wife living, she went back to her parents, and shortly afterwards instituted the present proceedings. Prisoner said in his defence
that he left his wife 13 years ago, because she committed adultery. He was committed for trial at the Central Criminal Court.
