LOWESTOFT ....Shipwrecked Mariner's Society.----Wm. [sic] H. HOOK, of Pakefield, who was wrecked in the brig Julia , of Sunderland, on the 25th July last, off St Ives, in the British Channel, owing to the spontaneous combustion of the cargo (Welsh coals), has been awarded, through William COLE, Esq., the honorary agent at this port, the sum of 2 Pounds 7 Shillings and 6 Pence, for loss of clothes. The crew had only just time to launch the boat before the vessel was blown up. They landed at Newquay, where HOOK remained nine days under medical treatment, being much burnt and injured by the explosion. He was then removed to the infirmary at Truro, and after sixteen days was forwarded home by this excellent institution..... ....Petty Sessions. Wednesday, September 9.---Before Rev R.C. DENNY (chairman), Wm. [sic] JECKS and G.J. LARKMAN, Esqrs. ....Assault.---Catherine IMPERT was charged with assaulting Ann, the wife of Matthew CHAPMAN, steam tug master, on the 2nd September. Filthy words, slapping the face with a fish, kicking legs, pulling hair, etc, formed the assault and counter-assault. The defendant acknowledged she kicked complainant's legs but it was only to make her let go of her hair. The chairman said the Bench were of the opinion defendant had committed an assault for which she would have to pay 15 Shillings including costs. A week was given for payment, but she didn't appear to see her way clear of doing so in that time.

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. ....The Marriage Law Report. "Standard, " September 9.---Bachelors and spinsters, widows and widowers, who are contemplating a change from single blessedness to the holy estate of matrimony, ought to feel very greatly indebted to the Royal commissioners on the laws of marriage for the pains they have taken in preparing a report which informs them in how many ways it is possible for two to be made one in different parts of the United Kingdom. We quite agree with the opinion which is unreservedly adopted by the commission, that a good marriage law ought to combine the maxima of simplicity and certainty....Seven-ninths of all marriages in this country take place at church, and, with very rare exceptions, the knot is tied so tightly that naught but gross misconduct and the decree of the Judge Ordinary can undo it. Dissenters have ample opportunity of marrying at their own places of worship, and those who like to secularise everything can go the registrar's office and make their bargain with as little show of sentiment or poetry as if they were buying a horse in a market overt, or transferring stock at the Bank of England. Marriages between persons of different denominations may be celebrated without let or hindrance, and any existing differences relate rather to preliminaries and incidentals than to matters of real importance. At church you may "put up the banns" or take out a license, which costs 4 Pounds 8 Shillings and 6 Pence, solemnisation included. For marriages at chapel, a notice suspended in some conspicuous place in the office of the registrar does duty for the banns, and such as like to pay for a license may get one from the official for 2 Pounds and 10 Shillings. But at church the presence of the clergyman is sufficient to give a civil efficacy to the religious rite, while at chapel the registrar is the important person, and the officiating minister is a mere lay figure. The alterations suggested by the commissioners relate chiefly to the abolition of these distinctions........

EPITOME OF NORFOLK NEWS ....A Gallant Rescue.---At about half-past eight o'clock on Monday night four men belonging to the steamer Eider, the property of Messrs CLARKE and REEVE, of Yarmouth, were engaged in weighing the kedge anchor. The steamer was moored near the Newcastle wharf, south-end, and the men were in a small boat. Through some mischance the boat heeled over and all the men were precipitated into the river. Only one sailor could swim - the mate, and he managed to save himself. Notwithstanding the darkness that then prevailed, a noble fellow, named Samuel HORTH, steward of the Buccleuch, sprang from the steamer into the stream in order to save his drowning comrades. The river was somewhat luminous, and this aided him in his efforts. He grasped the carpenter just as he was sinking, and another man, bringing them both to the shore. George CHAFFER, a young man of 28, whose wife has just been confined, was drowned. A subscription for the widow is being raised. The praiseworthy conduct of HORTH well deserves to be brought under the notice of the Royal Humane and other societies, which take cognisance of deeds of daring.
