EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ......Inquest On A Tramp.---On Thursday last, an inquest was held at the Black Swan Inn, Hadleigh, before G.A. PARTRIDGE, Esq., and a respectable jury, touching the death of William SAUNDERS (age unknown), a tramp, who on the Tuesday previous had been hawking for sale children's toys in the town, and who was found dead in his bed at PONDER's lodging house, in Benton-street, on Wednesday morning. The following evidence was taken: - Lucy SMITH, of Ipswich, a widow, said : I have lived with deceased three weeks as his wife. Deceased was a married man, and has a wife and three children living in Ipswich. He travelled with children's toys. We came to Hadleigh on Tuesday last, when deceased was quite well. He complained of a tightness in his body about four o'clock. He went out and sold some toys after that, and came home with some pence, which he gave me to purchase some food. He ate a good supper, and we went to bed about half-past eight o'clock. There were three other persons sleeping in the room at the time, one single man and two women, who each had separate beds. he complained of a tightness as before after we had been in bed, and went out into the yard. he came and laid down in bed again, and I covered him up and thought he fell off to sleep. I woke about six o'clock and called "Bill," but he took no notice, and I felt his forehead and it was cold. I called for a light, and the woman who came said he was dead. We then all got up, and the doctor was sent for. He had been drinking hard for the last three weeks, but had not since last Saturday. He was given to drinking. I don't know why he separated from his wife. -- Mr J.T. MURIEL, surgeon, said: I know nothing of the deceased. I have made a post mortem examination; there are no external marks of violence. I found organized fibrine and fat obstructing the chief artery from the heart, and that would have caused instant death. It must have been gradually forming for some time, until it completely obstructed the artery. It is an organic disease, and not caused from violence; nothing but natural causes would have occasioned it. I found the stomach and intestines slightly congested, but not more than would be caused by hard drinking. The Coroner having commented upon the evidence, the Jury returned a verdict of "Natural death." The question which suggests itself on reading the evidence of the woman SMITH is - should there not, on the ground of common decency and morality, be a compulsory classification of lodgers in these lodging houses? There are five beds in this room, and it would seem they may be occupied without the least regard to age or sex.

HOLKHAM Sporting Affair.---A match, which has excited considerable interest in the neighbourhood, came off here on the afternoon of Wednesday last, between Joseph TUCK, the well-known pedestrian of Little Snoring, and a fast trotting pony of Mr J. CODMAN's of Little Walsingham. The match was for 30 Pounds, the pony to trot 500 yards against TUCK's running, both to start at scratch. The road was thickly lined throughout the course with spectators, who flocked from all parts,and the betting was spirited, the pony being the favourite, as much as two to one being laid on the quadruped versus the biped. TUCK had the lead throughout, and beat the pony by two-and-a-half yards. Time one minute six seconds.

YARMOUTH Police Court. Tuesday, February 15.---Before R. HAMMOND, Esq., (chairman), P. PULLYN, Esq., R.D. BARBER, Esq., J. FENN, Esq., and J. OWLES, Esq. ......A case for divorce court. Sarah RANDALL was charged by her husband Samuel RANDALL, with abusive language and otherwise annoying him. Mr WILTSHIRE appeared for the complainant, and Mr C. DIVER for the defendant. Mr WILTSHIRE stated the complainant carried on business as a tailor in the Market Place, and unfortunate domestic differences between him and his wife caused him to separate from her, and he allowed her a separate maintenance. Notwithstanding this she was in the habit of going to his house and annoying him in various ways. On Saturday night she went and put her mouth to the key hole and told him to get his supper with his old wench, meaning his housekeeper, and used other offensive and abusive language. Whatever she might say about the complainant and his housekeeper, she had really no justification for it as she was herself living, and had been for some time past, with a man named BARTRAM. He would ere this have applied for a Divorce Court, but, unfortunately for his client, the expense of such a proceeding was more than he could afford to pay. He had however, no wish to punish her, but he could not longer put up with the annoyance to which he had been subjected. If she would however, undertake to cease this annoyance he would be satisfied. The magistrates said it was a great pity that the parties could not settle their differences without coming before them, and suggested that they had better do so without making a public exposure of their quarrels. Mr DIVER said he had no wish to prolong the case, and after consulting with the defendant she promised not to further annoy the complainant, and the Bench dismissed the case on the defendant paying the Court fees.

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ......Death From A Thorn.--- Some few days ago, man named George HOWARD, in the employ of Mr C. CAPON, Saxmundham, accidentally ran a thorn into his hand, which becoming painful, he applied to Mr WILSON, surgeon, for advice, and his friends were in hopes he would soon be well, but the inflammation extended, and he died on Monday last, leaving a wife and six children. ......Albert Middle-class College.---The Cambridge Local Examination list for December, 1868, was received at Framlingham on Monday. The Middle-class College School has done remarkably well ; out of 25 presented 22 passed ; and of these 6 were in the honour list, and 4 specially distinguished subjects. The names of the honour list boys are W.B. GIRLING, 2nd class senior ; W.T. GIDNEY, 3rd class senior ; A. COLBORNE, 2nd class junior ; H.H. BAKER, H. LAVIN, E. WILLINS, 3rd class junior. The names of the "distinguished" boys are W.B. GIRLING, distinguished for English, A. COLBORNE, for religious knowledge ; H.H. BAKER, H. LAVIN, each for drawing. The school passed 6 seniors out of 7 presented ; in 1867 it passed 7 out of 8 presented, and 16 juniors out of 18 presented. This is the third examination at which the college has presented boys, and while the number of failures is so small, the total number of the whole country is large, viz., 69 seniors to 142 boys passed, and 325 juniors to 793 boys passed. The Albert College, only established in 1865, has in three examinations, passed 62 boys, of whom 49 are juniors and 13 seniors. It has had 11 boys in the honours list and 7 distinguished. These results afford indisputable evidence of the character of the work, and it must be borne in mind that nearly the whole of the boys in the two upper classes are presented, and that the work is done in the school itself, and no charge has ever been made to any parent for extra preparation of boys. The masters have given their extra time and labour cheerfully and voluntarily, and so far, with the best results. Of the successful boys 22 are from Suffolk, 4 from Norfolk, and 2 from Essex.
