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.
