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 near the ship, from which it was surmised that he overbalanced himself whilst hauling up water at the ship's side.

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.
