EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ....Death Through Eating Lucifer Matches.---A little girl at Debenham named HUNT, about 2 years of age was on Wednesday night taken ill from the effects of eating phosphorous off some lucifer matches. Medical assistance was at once procured, but the poor girl died early on the following morning. The body awaits an inquest. Inquest.---An inquest was held in Blaxhall on Wednesday last, by C.C. BROOKE, Esq., Coroner, on the body of Henry WOODBRIDGE, of Blaxhall, bricklayer, aged 70 years. It appeared that on Wednesday, the 1st January, the deceased and another man were carting whins; when the load was about half finished the deceased, who was on the cart, complained of feeling giddy and got off. The other man got on to the load and deceased pitched up about two heaps when he commenced twirling round and fell down. He laid there about half an hour and then got up and walked home. On Saturday deceased was much worse, and his wife sent to Mr KEER, surgeon, of Wickham Market, who sent him some powders. Deceased continued however to get worse, and died at eight o'clock on Sunday evening. It appeared deceased had suffered for a long time from constipation of the bowels, and a head affection, and had been twice in Melton Lunatic Asylum. Verdict, "Death from natural causes." ....Sudden Death.---On Tuesday last [7 January], Mr S.B. JACKAMAN, the coroner for Ipswich, held an inquest at the Norfolk Hotel, touching the death of an old man named Robert TREW, aged 63 years, who had died on Sunday night. The deceased had previously been a bricklayer's labourer, and had also worked for Messrs. TURNER, of St Peter's iron works, but for the last two years he had done no work. He suffered from indigestion, and had been under the care of Mr W.H. MEADOWS some months since, but for the last two months he had had no medical attendant. Deceased was as well as usual up to Sunday, and he went to Chapel in the afternoon and evening, and ate his food with a fair appetite. He came home about twenty minutes to nine on Sunday night, and soon after went to bed. His wife was about to retire herself when she heard a noise upon the floor upstairs, where she found the deceased lying upon the floor in his night dress perfectly unconscious. She tried to raise him up but could not, and was compelled to call the assistance of a neighbour, Mr BIRD, who came, and with his help she got deceased into bed again; he remained unconscious for some time and died. There was a little frothing from deceased's mouth and he was slightly sick. Deceased had had two such fits as these before, and Mr MEADOWS who then attended him, had ordered mustard poultices to be applied to the calfs [sic] of his legs, but deceased's wife did not apply them in this case, nor did she send for the doctor. She did not apprehend any danger, but she was upset by the occurrence. Mr W. H. MEADOWS said he had previously attended the deceased for apoplexy, and he had no doubt that death arose from the rupture of a blood vessel on the brain, caused, doubtless, by the deceased eating indigestible food. The jury returned a verdict accordingly, and also added the following: The jurors are of the opinion that the widow of the deceased was negligent in not sending for the doctor when the deceased remained insensible for a longer period than he had upon former occasions.

EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS ....Starvation In West Norfolk.---Two cases of starvation have recently occurred in West Norfolk, one in King's Lynn and the other about six miles in the country. One was the case of a poor woman named Anne WHITE, aged sixty seven, who was in receipt of half-a-crown a week, parish relief, out of which she paid 1 Shilling a week for rent, so that she had 1 Shilling and 6 Pence a week to find her food and clothes with. The evidence at the inquest showed that she had been in the habit of sleeping on some mats and straw, having no covering save an old sack or two. The medical man described the body as being in a state of the most extreme emaciation. The stomach and intestines were empty. Death was occasioned by bronchitis, accelerated by want of the necessaries of life.---The other case was that of a man named Robert HUDSON, a sawyer, who was found nearly dead, lying on the snow by the side of the road at Tottenhill. He was proved to have lived at Watlington, where he was found by the police-officer lying on a bunch of straw, there being no bed or furniture in the house. Deceased left to go in search of work, and would seem to have fallen down from exhaustion by the side of the road. The post mortem examination showed the existence of pneumonia; and the jury returned a verdict of "Died by the visitation of God, death being accelerated by privation and exposure."
