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.

The discovery of this ancient relic excited great interest throughout the whole kingdom. Her Majesty the Queen was made acquainted with the fact of its discovery through information given by Mr Stephen JENNER, of Clare Hall, as the owner of the Castle Bailey, to her Majesty's Treasury; whereupon her Majesty was pleased to express a desire to possess this curious relic for herself.
