EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ......Presentation.---On Thursday morning last, a number of the parishioners met at the Vicarage, Farnham, and presented to the Rev Joseph KING a handsome drawing-room clock, bearing a plate with an inscription expressive of the esteem and regard which has been felt towards him during his ministry of more than 20 years. The clock was presented by Mr Thomas BARBER, churchwarden, together with a cheque for 100 Pounds. The Rev F. JOHNSON, rector of Stratford, expressed the comfort it had been in two parishes which were so closely connected in schools and services and many ways, to have had as incumbent of Farnham one with whom it was so easy to co-operate in Christian work as Mr KING. The universal feeling was one of regret at his departure, mingled with a hope that he might be prospered greatly in ministering to the new flock with which he had been entrusted. - The Rev J. KING, who was deeply affected, returned thanks. - Mrs JOHNSON, of Stratford, then presented to Mrs KING, on behalf of the subscribers, a silver salver engraved with a similar expression of deep esteem; adding that it was only wives and mothers who could rightly appreciate the duties and anxieties, and of late the afflictions also, in which Mrs KING had borne so exemplary a part, and won so much regard. Cake and wine was then handed round, and the health of Mr and Mrs KING was warmly proposed by Mr CHAPLIN, of Rose Hill, and duly acknowledged : also the health of the family at the vicarage, to whom the younger members of the parish owed so much. The health of the Rev F. and Mrs JOHNSON was then given by Mr KING; also that of Mr BARBER, and it was mentioned that besides the handsome subscription which the worthy churchwarden had given, he had again come forward nobly to make up the cheque presented, to the round sum which he had determined on.

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ......Marriage Festivities.---The marriage of Mr Chas. [sic] BALDWIN, late butler to the Hon. J.M. HENNIKER - MAJOR, M.P., and now landlord of the Horse Shoes Inn, Thornham, near Eye, and Miss Rosa BACON, only daughter of Mr H. BACON, farmer, Rickinghall, took place on Thursday the 10th June. As early as three o'clock in the morning passers-by could see that some very interesting affair was about to take place; triumphal arches were raised and flags were hoisted for a mile or more on the road leading to the homestead. It was evident that a good feeling existed between the bride and her parents and those for miles around them, for where substantial flags could not be obtained pocket handkerchiefs and bouquets of flowers, mounted on long poles and tied to the tops of trees, were to be seen at the front of every cottage door. Shortly after eleven o'clock four carriages were on the way containing the bride with her father and mother, the following six bridesmaids, Miss CUBITT, Miss EASTALL, Miss JACOB, Miss WRIGHT, Miss LOCOCK, and Miss LOWING, and the bridegroom and Mr LOWING. The Rev C. MAUL, the very worthy rector of Rickinghall, performed the interesting ceremony in the presence of upwards of 80 of the bride and bridegroom's relatives and friends. After the ceremony was completed, good wishes were showered upon them from every direction. After the usual wedding breakfast, music, singing, and games of every description, including fireworks, were the order of the day, the bells of Thornham and Rickinghall rang merry peals, and a set of handbells rang some beautiful changes in Mr BACON's garden.
