| The dead bodies of nine of the crew of the brig Favourite, of Liverpool, which was wrecked off Blackpool on Wednesday night last, had up to Saturday afternoon been cast ashore, six at Bispham, about three miles distant ; one at Cleveleys, about the same distance ; and two at Fleetwood, five miles off. The coast above Blackpool for two or three miles is strewn with pieces of spars, sails, and broken timber belonging to the wrecked vessel. About 100 barrels of palm oil and several bags of seeds, forming part of the cargo of the Favourite, have been washed ashore, and are now in charge of the authorities. The inquests on the bodies of the sailors thus far found was held on Saturday afternoon. Police-constable Robert Smith said on Saturday he went to the sands above Blackpool and saw four dead bodies. On the arms of one man there were three letters, W. C. C. He had not been able to ascertain the names of any of the deceased men. The captain, whose body had been washed ashore, was a married man and the father of four children. The Coroner in summing up the evidence said that the lifeboat crew appeared to have done their duty, and were not to blame in the matter. A verdict of Accidentally drowned was returned. The weather has been stormy at Blackpool ever since Wednesday, and on Saturday night a heavy sea was running.
The gale has been severely felt along the Vale of Glocester, up which the wind, being nearly west, rushes with direct force. At Haverton, as Mr. Harris, a farmer, was approaching his own house, he was, in sight of his wife, blown into a pool and drowned before any assistance could be rendered him. It is a curious coincidence that the deceased's brother was accidentally drowned in the same pool about a year ago. Very serious apprehensions are entertained respecting the fate of the spire of the parish church at Cheltenham, which on Wednesday had two stones blown from it on to the roof of the building. It is much feared that the gale which returned on Saturday night may consummate the mischief begun on that day.
A woman named Sedley was killed at Upton-on- Severn by the blowing down of a wall, and a signal station at Malvern was blown down during a brief absence of the alarmed signalman.
| FEARFUL ACCIDENT TO A WEDDING PARTY.On Monday, a wedding party met with a very serious accident at Harwich End, near Whaleybridge, by which one young lady was dreadfully injured. and several others slightly. The party consisted of Mr. William Waine, the bridegroom, son of Mr. Abel Waine, farmer, of Silkstone, near Bugsworth ; the bride, Mrs. Margaret Waine, Miss Eliza Waine, sister to the bridegroom, and a number of friends, including a party from Manchester. They were returning from Taxal Church, in two cars, after the nuptial ceremony. The drivers of the cars could not agree on which should take the lead, whereupon a race ensued. The excitement appears to have increased, and the contest grew warmer until the party reached a sudden turn in the road, opposite the White Horse Inn, at Harwich End. At the turn the speed caused one of the vehicles to run on one wheel for a long distance, and it upset, throwing the occupants into the road with great violence. Great confusion ensued. While some lay insensible on the ground, others were in a state of great consternation and suffering. The bridegroom's shoulders were dislocated, and his arm and other parts of his body much injured. His sister, Miss Eliza Waine, was picked up in an insensible state, and so devoid of all symptoms of animation that it was feared that life was extinct. Dr. Bennett, of Chapellen-le-Frith, was at once sent for, and, on his arrival, held out but faint hopes of the young lady's recovery. On Tuesday morning, however, signs of returning animation were visible, and for the first time after the accident, she spoke a few words, and is going on as well as can be expected. It is feared the spine is permanently injured. Mr. Isaac Lomas, the clerk of the parish, was also taken up insensible, but, after stimulants, recovered consciousness. It was found that the injuries he had sustained were of a comparatively slight nature. John Andrew was much hurt about the head and other parts of the body. The vehicle was broken, and the horse much injured.Sheffield Independent.

| DREADFUL CASE OF SUICIDE.On Wednesday morning a woman named Mary Millar, an inmate of the Belfast Union Workhouse, committed suicide by hanging herself on a tree in the ground of the workhouse. So far as we have been able to ascertain the facts, it appears that the deceased woman was an inmate of the hospital, and was under treatment for a chronic complaint. She was put to bed on the previous night, and on Wednesday morning she was not there. The nurse made an examination of the establishment to find where she could be concealed, and at day-light she was found near the front of the mean [sic] building, hanging on a tree dead, having evidently torn a portion of her dress to fragments to make the rope. A full investigation into this melancholy case will, no doubt, take place at the inquest.Northern Whig.|
