SOUTHWOLD Accident.---On Tuesday last, between one and two o'clock p.m., a sudden gust of wind from the north-west caught the Black Mill upon the common (the property of Mr W.W. BARDWELL, of Sotherton, and in the occupation of Mr C. M. MARSDEN), on which it spent its fury, completely denuding it of its sails and doing considerable damage to the round house and other parts of it. The gust seemed more to resemble a tornado, as one of the sails was carried twenty yards at least upon the common. The miller in the employ of Mr MARSDEN was at the time in the mill and had a most providential escape. It was only last December a similar accident happened to the mill in the occupation of Mr William BAGOTT, on the Church Green.

EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS Opium Eating.---Agricultural gangs are bad enough, but opium-eating is worse; and this, as most of the doctors and some of the parsons of the district are aware, goes on to an incredible extent in the eastern counties. Dr HAWKINS, of King's Lynn, tells the readers of the Medical Journal that half of the opium imported into England is consumed in Lincolnshire and Norfolk. One Lynn chemist sells 200 pounds [weight], another 140 pounds a year of solid opium, besides five or six gallons of laudanum, and five or six gallons of "Godfrey's Elixir" (a pint of laudanum in every three gallons) a week. People will be startled to hear of drawers full of half-drachm packets of opium, of which many customers take three a-day. A farmer came in to get some good laudanum. "How many drops ?" asked the chemist. "Drops," was the reply, "give me an ounce and a-half." The chemist looked at him, saw he was in the habit of taking it, and gave him the dose. He drank it off, returned twice in the day for the same quantity, and took home a half-pint bottleful with him when he left the market. The habit is no new one. The present writer can vouch for its existence in and around Spalding - and even across in Leicestershire a dozen years ago. The excuses would be obvious; deficient food with the poor, ague and "rheumatiz," needing an anodyne, with others. But it is a growing habit; and Dr HAWKINS speaks very strongly of its pernicious effects in poisoning the blood. To it he attributes the excessive infant mortality in the district, and the "miserable, feeble, brownish-yellow countenances so striking among many of the inhabitants." In fact, he thinks its effects on the system almost as bad as those of syphilis, and calls for some interference to discourage what is becoming a cause of wide-spread degeneracy in the breed.---Imperial Review.
