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 pageed 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 15½ 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.
