REWARD TO A CLERGYMAN FOR GALLANT CON DUCT.
On Saturday evening the Rev C. Cobb, M.A, rector of Dymchcurch, Kent, was presented with the first class Albert medal by order of her Majesty in recognition of gallant services on the occasion of the wreck of the French lugger Courrier de Dieppe, at Dymchurch, on Sunday, Jan. 6, 1867. The rev. gentleman had been previously rewarded by his being presented with the gold medal of the National Lifeboat Institution. Mr Cobb swam out to the wreck of the lugger in the midst of a raging storm, and succeeded in saving the life of the captain, the only person remaining on board
