TOFT MONKS A Sad And Fatal Accident occurred to Robert ALDRED, a young man about 19 years of age, in the service of Mr COLMAN, of "The Elms," here. On Tuesday last [12 February] he was sent with two horses and a waggon to Covehithe for seed, and when pageing and passing through the hamlet of Hulver, it is supposed he made an attempt to gain the shaft of the waggon, missed his hold, and fell, the wheel passing over him causing instant death. He was at once removed to the Gate Inn, where an inquest was held on Thursday, before B.L. GROSS, Esq., county coroner, and the jury pageed a verdict of "accidental death." The deceased was a remarkably steady, well conducted young man, and his untimely end is lamented by all who knew him.

EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS An extraordinary occurrence has happened at Norwich in the death of Capt. LEYTON, a retired naval officer, whose body was discovered at his residence, Unthank's -road [sic], on Thursday morning, after lying dead about six weeks. It appears that the deceased's housekeeper left him at Christmas, since which time the house has been closed. Although the captain had been missed, suspicion was not excited until Thursday morning, when a gentleman residing on Unthank's-road waited upon the magistrates, and upon the information which he gave them the police were instructed to search the house. Under the direction of the Chief Constable, a police-officer broke open a window at the back of the premises, and having thus obtained an entry, he made his way upstairs, and found the deceased lying in his bedroom. From the appearance of the body, there can be no doubt that several weeks have elapsed since the deceased's death, and this opinion is strengthened by the fact that he has not been seen by any of his friends and neighbours since the 24th December, It is understood that the deceased, some months since, while walking in St Gile's, Norwich, caught his foot in a lady's crinoline, and being thrown down sustained an internal rupture. Securities for money to a large amount were found in the house of the deceased, who, nevertheless, perished miserably, and entirely forsaken by his fellow-creatures [sic].
