HALESWORTH 7th Suffolk Rifles.---The general annual meeting of this Corps was held on the 4th June. The members of this very efficient Corps assembled in full uniform at the Railway Station at 4 o'clock, and after some preliminary drill, formed into fours and marched to the parish church, headed by the band, when an excellent sermon was delivered by the Rev R.S. BELOE, of Holton, Hon. Chaplain to the Corps. There was a good attendance of friends and visitors in addition to the members. Refreshments were afterwards served in the Rifle Hall by Mr Isaac MILLS, of the Swan Inn, to whom great credit is due for the taste and general excellence of the arrangements so successfully carried out on this occasion. During the evening a statement of the monetary affairs of the Corps was placed before the meeting, from which it appeared that the capitation grant and the subscriptions amounted altogether to 135 Pounds 16 Shillings 9 Pence. The expenses connected with the encampment at Lowestoft last summer, the clothing, drill, and sundries, ran up to 136 Pounds 13 Shillings 11 Pence, leaving a balance of 25 Pounds 19 Shillings 11 Pence in hand, as against 26 Pounds 17 Shillings 1 Penny, for the balance of the preceding year.---Captain H.A.S. BENCE presided on the occasion, and gave the usual loyal, patriotic and complimentary toasts, which were briefly but ably responded to by the various gentlemen whose names were coupled therewith.---The Committee, Treasurer, and Secretary were elected for the ensuing year. Amongst the company present we may mention the Rev R.S. BELOE, Hon. Chaplain to the Corps, Lieut. STRATHERN, Paymaster BURLEIGH, Ensign BAAS, and F. HAWARD, Esq., Surgeon to the Corps and Messrs F. CROSS, J. HOWLETT, J. GARROULD, and other visitors. In the course of the evening the prize of one guinea was given to Private C.

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS ....A man named John STUBBINGS, of Kirtling, near Bury St Edmund's, was watching a hive of bees about to swarm, and accompanying their hum with a house-key and fire-shovel, the queen apparently attracted by the music, alighted upon his head, and was immediately followed by the whole swarm. STUBBINGS had the presence of mind to stand perfectly still, and in a few minutes he presented a ludicrous appearance, the bees completely covering one side of his head, leaving him only sufficient breathing space. As soon as they were settled the man's wife swept them off into a hive, and was stung in doing so, but he escaped unhurt.................................... ....A correspondent has favoured the Bury Post with the following extracts from the letter of a native of Suffolk, named Joseph CHAPMAN, who has for the last twenty years held a confidential situation in the family of a Polish Count residing near Warsaw, on the subject of the rinderpest in that country: ---"The rinderpest is an illness that we have here continually in the country. I have lost my cows twice, and here in Iabloma, near Warsaw, on the estate of my Count, we have lost during six years about 550 cows. Two years ago we lost in one year 300. There is no cure, no remedy for them, but we have seven cows which have had the illness, and since that have been among cows that have died with the rinderpest, and it takes no more effect on them. The only cure for the rinderpest is the knife and separations. If you find one ill separate it directly from the others, and great care must be taken that the people that attend to ill animals never might communicate with the people that have to do with the healthy cattle, or stacks, and never let a stranger go into your cow-stable. With one word the only cure is the Knife and Separation. If an ill animal is in one field, and a healthy one in the next, it can also fall ill, without further communication; and people bring it with them in their clothes. Dogs, carts, hay, straw, all woollen things take the illness from one to another. If you have food enough keep your cattle in the stable, and do not let the men or people that attend them go anywhere only in your yard and house, and take care that the people do not communicate or speak with people that come from the part where the rinderpest exists. With one word, we have no remedy; the rinderpest is until now incurable."

EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS ...On Tuesday last, a man about thirty years of age called upon Mr Thomas LYNES, ironmonger, Market Hill, Diss, and said his name was Mr George CARR, and that he was farm-bailiff to Sir E.C. KERRISON, Brome Hall. In the blandest manner possible he gave Mr LYNES an order for a number of scythes, to be sent to Brome Hall. Mr LYNES not having sufficient number of the particular kind required by Mr CARR, obtained two or three of a neighbour.The fellow who had thus selected Mr LYNES for his patronage gave him some strong hints that some gratuity should be given in return for the order, but Mr LYNES wisely deferred that matter until the delivery of the goods. On taking the scythes to Brome Hall on Wednesday, it was found that no such person as Mr George CARR was known there, and that no orders had been given for new scythes.----The next dodge was to proceed to Mr John HUMPHREY's Railway Tavern, Victoria-road, where the fellow represented himself as a gamekeeper in the employ of Sir E.C. KERRISON; that he had taken two or three poachers and was then after another, but as he could not take him without the necessary papers, which he had unfortunately left at Brome Hall, he must have a pony and trap at once in order that he might fetch them. Mr HUMPHREY being deceived by the respectable appearance and address of "Mr George CARR," immediately furnished him with a poney [sic], which he had recently purchased, and a car, and away went his visitor. On reflection, Mr HUMPHREY, thinking there might be some swindling in the matter, set off at once for Brome, but could obtain no tidings of his patron. Thence he went to Scole, and learnt that his pony and car had passed through that village. Driving towards Harleston, tidings were again obtained at Fish Needham, where it appears the fugitive made a detour, taking the low road to Harleston, and thence to Bungay, where he passed the "Thatched House" between one and two o'clock. Mr HUMPHREY now started on the road home, and shortly overtook the objects of his search, and jumping out of the vehicle in which he was riding, got into the one driven by "Mr George CARR," and commenced a chat with him on recent events, winding up by demanding 1 Pound for the expense he had been put to in the chase. CARR at once jumped up, put his hand in his pocket, and said, "I'll pay," and in an instant jumped out of the vehicle and made leg bail across the fields, which was the last Mr HUMPHREY saw of him. When CARR ordered the trap, he was very chatty about the keepers on the Brome estate, and seemed to be well up in all matters pertaining thereto, which threw Mr HUMPHREY off his guard. He is described as being of light complexion, dark whiskers, and somewhat above the average stature.
