LOWESTOFT POLICE COURT Held on Wednesday, the 16th July, before Charles STEWARD, Esq., R.C. FOWLER, Esq., H.S. WADDINGTON, Esq., the Rev R.C. DENNY, and Major LEATHES. Ale House Offence James BROWN, of Blundeston, a beer house keeper, was charged with keeping his house open during the hours of divine service, on Sunday, the 29th June, contrary to the form of the statute. Arthur AMISS, of Lound, said that about 2 o'clock on the day in question, in company with others, he went to the defendant's house, and remained there till between five and six. There were other men besides himself, they were drinking all that time, and were the worse for drink when they left the house. The Chairman addressing the defendant, said he was surprised when he saw him come into the room, as he had known him a great many years, as a respectable man, but they could not overlook the thing. It was bad when the house was kept open only a few minutes after divine service, but in this instance, the house was kept open an hour before and an hour after divine service, and the parties left the house the worse for drink. He was fined 2 Pounds including costs. The money was paid.

BUNGAY A BAZAAR for the reduction of the debt upon the Wesleyan Chapel was held in the Corn Hall, on Tuesday, the 22nd July. The day being fine a large number of visitors arrived; the hall which was very tastefully decorated with evergreens, flowers, mottoes, flags, etc, by Messrs STOLLERY, BALLS, AND COCKS, was opened at 11 o'clock a.m. The stalls, extending on each side of the hall, were presided over by Mrs and Miss SADD, Mrs and Miss STOLLERY, Miss MITCHELL, and Miss BLOOMFIELD, who were very energetic in their endeavours to lighten the purses of the visitors, and we are pleased to state their efforts were successful. A refreshment stall was placed across the bottom of the hall, which gave constant employment to Mrs G. COCKS, Mrs DELF, Mr George CANNELL, and Mrs F. STOLLERY; while in the opposite corners were the penny portrait gallery and the post office; an harmonium was played at intervals by Mr W. WALESBY. We also noticed Mr A. BOATWRIGHT with his photographic Cameras, and have since seen some well executed stereoscopic views of the hall and its contents during the sale; they are doubtless deserving of great praise. Sermons of a useful and earnest character were preached in the chapel by A. CHAMERLAIN, Esq., from Wroxham, in the afternoon; and by the Rev B. RIDSDALE, from Lowestoft, in the evening; after which the congregation returned to the Hall, where they remained until 10 o'clock. A committee meeting was held on Friday evening, when the accounts were audited, and a balance of just 50 Pounds was declared.

BUNGAY SERIOUS ACCIDENT--On Monday, the 1st inst., a severe accident happened to a young man named Frederick DOWNING, who is employed at Mr FARROW's steam sawing machine. It appears the young man had thrown off the rigger which drives the saw, in order to stop it, but as the brass on the spindle was heated, it did not stop immediately. DOWNING, imprudently, pressed his thumb against the plate, which, being greasy, resisted the pressure, and his hand slipped in front of the saw, and the thumb and three fingers of his right hand were completely severed.
