WANGFORD ACCIDENT---On Tuesday evening, the 8th inst., a very sad accident occurred to Mr ROCKHILL, miller, of Uggeshall, who in company with Mr CHURCHMAN, Mr EADE, and a lad, was pageing in a horse and cart from Halesworth market. It appears that when in the act of turning a corner in the road, at the cross way, near Westhall Hall, the right wheel came in contact with a quantity of ice, which had floated thither with a current of water close by, and the cart being upset, the several parties were thrown out; Mr ROCKHILL, we are sorry to add, being very much hurt. He was immediately conveyed home, where Dr GIRDLESTONE of Wangford, was soon in attendance upon him, and although still suffering from the injuries he received, hopes are entertained that he will ultimately recover. We believe the other parties escaped unhurt.

HALESWORTH FIRE---The inhabitants of Blythburgh were greatly alarmed on Thursday, the 7th inst., by a fire which broke out about eleven o'clock in the forenoon, at the cottage of Robert BAXTER, laborer. It originated by a chimney becoming overheated, and several pieces of burning soot escaping therefrom, and falling upon the premises of Robert ATTOE, dealer, thereby setting fire to a haulm [sic] stack and shed, doing damage to the amount of about 20 Pounds. A great number of persons were quickly on the spot, and used the utmost vigilance in procuring a plentiful supply of water, by means of which the flames were soon extinguished. We hear that the farm house and buildings, occupied by Mr OSBORN, together with a hay stack, belonging to Mr FREEMAN, had a narrow escape.
