EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS ...On Tuesday last, a dreadful calamity occurred at Norwich, by which three men were instantaneously hurried into eternity, and three others so much injured that they have since died; while of the remaining three who were personally affected by the catastrophe, at least two of them are certain to carry about with them the traces of their misfortune for some time to come. The scene of this awful mishap was at the well -known dyeing, chemical manure, and oil cake establishment of Messrs STARK and Co., which occupies a site of ground lying between Duke's Palace- street [sic] and St George's Plain, on the banks of the River Wensum, and extending to St George's Colegate. On the day in question, most of the hands employed at the works had left for dinner at one o'clock, the usual hour. Mr STARK himself had previously gone out; but though there were other individuals on some part of the establishment, the only persons in the vicinity of the engine-house, boiler, and shaft (excepting, indeed, Mr James SMITH, clerk), were James PAYNE, a resident of Heigham; John RUMP, New Catton; James HAWES, Peafield; Henry CLARKE, Heigham; James BREEZE, St Mary's; Joseph LEAMAN, St Martin's-at-Oak; Daniel TAYLOR, St Miles's; John DUNN, St Edmund's; and Henry BROWN, St Augustine's. About ten minutes to two o'clock, while PAYNE was attending to the engine, RUMP and HAWES enjoying a short sleep on some sacks by the side of the boiler, and other men named being engaged on the dye side, the boiler burst; and the centre plate, rising right up with irresistible force, carried away the roof of the engine-house, which descended in dismal disorder all around. Without, of course, any delay, search was made for the men who were known to be near the boiler at the time of the concussion, when the blackened and mangled corpses of BREEZE and TAYLOR were almost at once discovered; but that of CLARKE, who was "coaling" a fire in the dye-office [sic] at the moment, was not found until about two hours subsequently, the quantity of debris by which he was hidden having prevented his earlier exhumation. The six other men---whose sufferings proceeded from the same cause which had brought about the immediate death of the three previously mentioned, namely, a combination of steam scalds and being struck by heavy substances falling upon them---were instantly conveyed to the Hospital, where the utmost attention was bestowed upon them by the medical and nursing staff of that institution. HAWES, who was only scalded in the face and hands and slightly cut in the lip, after having his wounds dressed, was discharged the same day, but LEAMAN, BROWN, and DUNN have since expired. With the exception of RUMP, the deceased and injured men were all married men, with families, some of then having worked on the premises for 30 or 40 years. Mr SMITH, the Clerk, made an escape little short of miraculous. A cut-lead gutter, weighing about a hundred weight, was precipitated by the explosion on to the upper walk in the garden attached to the Ladies' Diocesan Training Institution, on St George's Plain---a distance of some forty or fifty yards---and luckily without any further damage to life or limb. It was exceedingly fortunate that none of the young ladies were on the walk at the time of the unwelcome visitant; for if they had, there must have been such an issue as must inevitably have added to the list of fatalities. The tidings of the deplorable occurrence soon spread over the entire city, from all parts of which people flocked in immense numbers to the locale of the sad affair. The Chief Constable and Mr Superintendent BARNARD were soon on the spot, and rendered essential service in keeping the injured premises from unnecessary intrusion, as well as to ensuring traffic in so important a thoroughfare from complete stoppage. Both Mr MORANT and Mr BENEST were likewise assiduous in their exertions during the greater portion of the afternoon, and gave invaluable advice and assistance to those concerned; and to prevent further accidents Mr MORANT deemed it necessary to direct the shattered and unsupported roof of one of the rooms, nearly abutting on the street to be pulled down. The boiler, we understand, had only been in use about six months. On Saturday evening another of the sufferers expired, and an inquest was held on the body on Monday morning.---Six of the poor fellows were buried at the Cemetery on Sunday, and an immense concourse of people were on the ground to witness the affecting scene. A subscription has been set on foot for the benefit of the sufferers, and we hope that a large sum will be forthcoming.

PETTY SESSIONS

Thursday.---Before Major MARGITSON (Chairman), Richard MANN, Esq., and R.D. FRENCH, Esq. William HADDINGHAM, of Bungay, innkeeper, was charged with having, at Bungay, on the 8th November, assaulted Eliza PLUMMER, his servant, by striking her on the head. Mr KENT, of Beccles, appeared for the defendant. The complainant, sworn, said that whilst she was engaged in clearing the tea-table in the market room on the day in question, the defendant came upstairs and inquired why she had not answered a bell which had been rung in another room. She said she would do so when she went down.She then took up some of the things to carry down, but the defendant would not permit her to do so; and on her saying it was better to go downstairs full handed than empty, he boxed her ears very violently, and when she went downstairs he ordered her to go to bed, but this she refused to do as she had not had her tea. In reply to Mr KENT, she denied that her master, on coming into the room, saw her and Mr TOOKE doing anything improper or immoral. Mr Peter TOOKE and she were alone in the room, but the prosecutor [sic - should be defendant] did not complain that he saw anything between them. She should have finished clearing away the tea things, but had to wait for Mr TOOKE's reckoning. When her master slapped her face, a loaf of bread fell off a dish she had in her hand. She did not throw it at him.She was not angry before he struck her, but afterwards she told him he should not knock her about as he did his wife. The defendant said that on going to his Market Tea-room to see why the complainant did not answer a bell which was ringing, he found her and Mr Peter TOOKE acting, but she appeared to be taking more liberties with him than he with her. He ( the defendant) ordered her to leave the room and go downstairs, but she would not do so without taking some of the things down with her, and as he would not allow her to do so, as she was tipsy and had been so all day, he refused to allow her to remove the things, when she threw the loaf of bread at him, and he, in the heat of the moment, boxed her ear. The complainant denied that she was intoxicated, and also denied having thrown the loaf at defendant, or accused him of ill-treating his wife, until he had struck her. The Chairman said that although the assault was of a trifling character, yet as the defendant had committed an unmanly act in striking a woman, and had also acted illegally, the bench convicted him of the charge, and adjudged him to pay a fine of 1 Shilling, with 7 Shillings and 6 Pence costs. The defendant paid the fine and costs.
