Yesterday morning Christopher Norfolk, cook on board the smack Minnie belonging to Messrs Vivian & Toozes, was brought into port by a fish cutter, suffering from a stab inflicted on him a few days ago. Five weeks ago the smack left Hull, and everything went well till a fortnight ago, when differences arose between the deckhand and Norfolk. They whee sixty miles from spurn when the deck hand threatened to murder him, and ultimately took his knife and struck him on the head with it, causing a wound. He was taken to Hull Infirmary on arrival but his wound is not considered dangerous - The deck hand is still at sea.
