CORRECTION - It has come to my attention that I left out a detail in the extract of June 15 1869, Page 5 Column 3, in the item entitled "Suffolk Agricultural Association." One of the 'contestants' in class 3, did not have the number of years with his employer entered with his name. The corrected version is as follows: James MUDD, recommended by Mr J.A. HEMPSON, 29 years.

EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS Timely Rescue.---During the heavy gale that prevailed on the 29th August last, the crew of the schooner Wanderer, Capt. LACEY, of Yarmouth, while in the Downs, observed a small boat, with apparently only one person on board, drifting helplessly before the gale. The attention of Captain LACEY was directed to the boat, and he shaped a course so as to near the frail craft, a task of some difficulty and no little peril, considering the heavy nature of the gale. On approaching the boat, it was found to contain, in addition to the person in charge, a lady with a family of children and a female attendant, all of who were huddled in the stern of the boat, and partly covered over with shawls as some protection against the weather. Seeing the imminent peril of those on board and that no time was to be lost, Captain LACEY, with the utmost promptitude threw out several lines, which, however, fell short. He next manoeuvred his ship, as well as the heavy gale would permit, so as to run close to the boat, and gallantly, rope in hand, sprang into her as the schooner swept past. By this means he effected communication with the boat and its occupants, who, half dead from fright, were quickly got on board the schooner, where they received every attention. Mrs LACEY, who was on board with her husband, placed the cabin at the disposal of those so timely rescued and exerted herself in ministering to their comforts under the strange circumstances in which they were placed. >From particulars furnished by the gentleman, a Mr NEWBERT, of London, it appeared that he had engaged the boat for a pleasure trip with his wife and family, and started from Broadstairs. Soon after leaving, a gale sprung up, rendering it impossible for him to regain the shore, and he was compelled to run before the storm, expecting every minute to be engulphed [sic] in the heavy seas running in the Downs.......Captain LACEY, finding it would be impossible to land the family until the gale moderated, brought his vessel up under the lee of the Kent Sand, where he remained until the following day, when he signalled to the shore for a boat's crew, who came off and eventually landed Mr NEWBERT and his family at Dover, greatly to the relief of their friends, who had been telegraphing along the coast, but in vain, for any tidings of their safety......on leaving Mrs NEWBERT insisted on Mrs LACEY accepting a ring from her finger as some slight acknowledgment of the service rendered them by her husband and herself. On the schooner putting into Yarmouth harbour a few days since, Captain LACEY was surprised at finding a parcel awaiting his arrival, which was found to contain a gold watch bearing the following inscription: - "Presented to Captain B. LACEY, as a token of gratitude, by A. NEWBERT, 29th August, 1869." A sum of money was also enclosed in the parcel, which Mr NEWBERT, in a letter which accompanied the gift, requested might be distributed among the crew.

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS Wreck Of An Ipswich Vessel And Loss Of Life.---On Tuesday morning intelligence was received by telegram the Queen, Capt. MATT, was totally lost on the previous afternoon, and the captain and boy were drowned; the mate and one man being saved. The Queen was on her passage with a cargo of iron from Workington to Rotterdam. The Queen, which was the property of Mr John MATT, of Cornhill, Ipswich, to whom the captain was brother, has been somewhat unfortunate during the past year, for we find that on the 4th February she was run into off the North Foreland by the screw steamer Vesta, of Waterford, and more recently has met with a great many mishaps. Captain MATT leaves a widow and three children. The lad was the son of a man named

DAWSON, who gets his living by vending pens and pencils about the town. This is the third of the family that has met with a watery grave, as his mother and brother were drowned. We understand that the Queen was partially insured in the Ipswich Maritime Association. On Friday, the vessel was fast breaking up; and the bodies have not been recovered.
