EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ....On Wednesday last, an accident which might have proved very serous, occurred at Gosbeck Rectory. Mr A. ATTWOOD, the son of the Rector, was skating and pushing before him on a chair, a young lady (Miss A. TODD), when on passing over a part which had been broken, the ice gave way and both were precipitated into the water. Fortunately their screams brought immediate assistance, and the lady's crinoline prevented her sinking, so that they were rescued from their cold bath without any serious consequences.
