But one short month ago we had the infinite satis- [sates- disclaims] columns of the Chronicle the munificent gift of Robert Bentley, Esq., of Rotherham, of the sum of 1,500, to the poor of Lockwood and the Huddersfield Infirmary. At that time, we were aware that he then lay in a precarious state of health, we little expected we should be so soon called upon to record, as we now do, regret, his lamented demise. Disease, however, of a few weeks duration had made such rapid inroad on his naturally rebust [robust] constitution, that on Tuesday last he sank under its effects, and ex- [expired] pired [pride] at his residence in Rotherham, about half-past11. [half-past] Connected as Mr. Bentley was with one of the most, respectable and influential families of this neighbonr- [neighbour- neighbourhood] hood, himself being the eldest male representative of that family, it is naturally should devote some faction te record in the with unfeigned to be expected thit [that] we littie [little] space our incolumns [in columns] to a record of the public and private character and worth of so eminent an individual as the deceased gentleman unquestionably was, We had, according y, some notice in accordance with our Views, but having been favoured with a characteristig [characteristic] notice of the de- [deceased] ceased, from the pen of our cor.temporary, the Don- [Doncaster] caster Gazette, of yesterday, we prefer his portraiture to our own, for the present, aswe [awe] may have the opportunity of returning to the subject again. We now merely would add, that whilst Providence had bountifully assisted his own industry and entsrprise, [enterprise] and crowned his suc- [such- successful] cessful [useful] endeavours With fame, reputation, great popu- [Pope- popularity] larity, [laity] and universal esteem, he never forgot the duty he owed to markind, [mankind] but lent himself to all the most benevolent and philanthropic schemes that tended to ameliorate man's condition; and was, in truth, a friend ipdeed [indeed to all. To his family, in the bosom of which no man more reclined, nor in return was more beloved, his loss is, indeed, irreparable; and among hrs long array of intimate and dearly attached friends his memory will live and be affectionately cherished. We would just note that, with all his wealth and libe- [line- liberality] rality, [reality] the deceased was never ostentatious. Humility a becoming humility, not a servile one, which is ever the characteristic of a great mind-remarkably distinguished him. He never obtruded himself or his opinions on others; but, whilst his advice was eagerly sought on every hand, he never failed to impart it, and it never failed to be appreciated. If ever there Was a praiseworthy example where industry, enter- [enterprise] prise, perseverance, caution, prudence, foresight, and circumspection, combined with the strictest and most honourable integrity, led to the highest earthly results, this was assuredly one of the most to be regarded, which all would do well to imitate, and, if a man of business, to take a lesson from. We forbear further at present, and quote our respected contemporary - DEATH OF Mr. BENTLEY, THE EMINENT BREWER AT RoTHerHAM.-We [Rotherham.-We] have given in our obituary the death of Robert Bentley, Esq. duty to place on record the demise of those who,' through the profession of wealth by inheritance, and especially by industry and enterprise, have been the benefactors of their fellow-creatures, relicving [relieving] their necessities while living, and providing fer their comfort This feeling derives a d intensity by the lamented fact. ot the death of A little after eleven o'clock in the forenoon of Tuesday last, at his residence near the town and contiguous to the Brewery, this highly esteemed gen- [genius] -His complaint was dropsy, and he struggled agaist [against] its attacks with manly forti- [fort- torturing] during a pericd [period] of only eight weeks; and he closed his earthly career with Christian resignation and humble confidence, tranquil in spirit and at peace with all mankind. Previous to his demise, his benevelernce [benevolent] to the poor was, truly, on the most liberal scale; leaving a name inperishable [imperishable] in it- [itself] self, and worthy of all imitaticn [imitation] by his successors. Mr. Bentley commenced business about twenty-nine years ago in the town of Rotherham and was so re. I hle [he] in his exertions, and so spirited is enterprises, that his industry was crowned with a success far beyond ordinary examples ; while his purse was ever open to relieve the wants of the destitute and administer to the consolations of the afflicted. He was only fifty years of age in the month of February last and previous to the attack of disease already alluded to, he was a hale and hearty gentleman. His whole study was to serve the best interests of those by whom he was surrounded; and it iz searcely [scarcely] need- [needful] ful [full] to add, that the whole of his family, and the work- [workmen] men whom he employed, are plunge loss which they, as well as the public, have sustained. We have before announced the munificent gifts made by Mr. Bentley to several charitable institutions. By adopting this plan during his life time, there is a sav- [save- say] y duty amounting to several hun- [Hun- Hun] now subjoin the following gifts, including the sum of 1,500 for charitable to be applied to the town of Huddersfield and bouring [boring] village of Lockwood-a locality in which a portion of the wealth of the Bentley family has been It is always a painful through future time. tleman [gentleman] breathed his last. and intelligent in in grief at the ing of a heavy 1 ersfi [Fisher] d Lock wood ae cid [id] Licensed Victuallers' eee [see] eet [et] Sheffield Lang eh Sheffield ic Dispensary The poor of Rutherham [Rotherham] (through the feofees) [Coffees] Rotherham Public Di Rotherham Wesleyan We understand that the remains of Mr. Bentley will be consigned to their last resting place in the family vault in the Parish Church of Rotherham, about eleven to-day (Saturday), to the great grief of his relatives, to a large circle of friends, and to the poor in his own neighbourhood, as well as in other places.

G&oRGE [G&ore] ARMITAGE was consequently called upon to preside. - 'he minutes of the previous meeting having beéa [bee] read, Den read a letter from the secretary of the Royal Jublin [Dublin] Society, soliciting the Huddersfield Commis- [Comms- Commissioners] Stoners to allow their new fire 'escape, recently ordered, to exhibited in Dublin at the 'coming exhibition of the Sooiety.-Comnissioners [Society.-Commissioners] MALLINSON and CROSLAND ox- [expressed] pressed themselves favourable to the request; provided all expenses were paid by the society to and fro, and the 'om- [Commissioners] missioners were guaranteed from any damage the machine may sustain in the transit.-lt was explained by Mr. Hos- [Hope] pw that the fire escape was now on its Way from London to luddersfield, [Huddersfield] and was already paid for.-Commissioners Riley, Sutliffe, [Sutcliffe] Eastwood, and England objected to lending the escape fer such a purpose, growmding [growing] their objections on the fact that a fire might occur in the meantime, and that as the ratapayers [ratepayers] had paid for the escape it was only night that it should be at thn [the] service of the inhabitants as early as possible.-A for lending the escape to the blin [bin] sceiety, [society] for a time, moved by Commissioner Crosland, was met by an amendment contra from Com- [Commissioners] mussioner [mission] England, and on a division the amendment was carried by 6 to 2. THE ANNUAL Accounts.-This being the day fixed for balancing the annual accounts, preparatory to the annual meeting, Mr. Hobsan [Hobson] explained that the books were so far prepared that Mr. Bolton, of Leeds, had now made out his trial balance shéet, [sheet] but in consequence of there being Some trifling error in striking the balance, which that gentleman had not as yet been able tp discover, the ac- [accounts] counts wou'd [you'd] not be ready to lay b2fore [before] the Commissioners until Monday.-Commissioner SUTCLIFFE inveiged [invited] against an acoountant [accountant] being employed for any such purpose, but Severr.l [Severe.l] of the Commissioners contended that Mr. Bolton's Services would prove of great advantage to the ratepayers, apd [ap] result in placing the accounts in a more satisfactory position than they had been in heretofore.-Several Com- [Commissioners] nalssioners [nations] expressed their disapprobation at the accounts not being in a sufficiently forward state for presenta- [present- presentation] tion, [ion] but it was subsequently explained that the delay had been mainly caused in consequence of a party who had been engaged to assist in making up the books having ab- [absented] sented [scented] himself during the present week without assigning any cause for his absence... Mr. Bolton was subse [subs] uently [until] called into the room, and intimated that but for the absence of one party above alluded to, the accounts would have been ready for the meeting that evening, but he undertook to have them ready for Monday afternoon.-The meeting was subsequently adjourned until Monday, when the Board will again assemble to pass the accounts preparatery [prepared] to the annuel [annual] meeting. . THE Late ACcIDENT [Accident] IN ALBION-STREET.-Commissioner Moore drew the attention of the Board to the late lament- [lamentable] able accident in Albion-street, and suggested that the proper committee be requested to take the matter of hoists and teagles, [eagles] fronting to the public street, into their serious consideration as early as ible. [able] It having been ex- [explained] plained by Mr. Clough that he was now, and had been for some time past, arranging a series of bye-laws bearing on this and other reprehensible practices, a resoiution [resolution] was passed urging Mr. Clough, in consequence of the recent entable [enable] accident, to use all possible speed in the prepa- [prepay- preparation] ration of the bye-laws in question. The Board then adjourned until Monday. CaURCH [Church] Misslonary [Missionary] Socrety.-The [Society.-The] annual sermons in aid of the above important society were preached at the parish church, Huddersfield, on Sunday last, the 26th ult., y the Rev. the Vicar, andthe [and the] Rev. W. Sinclair, M.A., Incumbent of St. George's, Leeds; and at St. Paul's by the Rev. R. Collins, M.A., Vicar of Kirkburton, and the Rev. W. Sinclair. There were also several other sermons preached in the neighbouring churches on behalf of the same object. On Monday evening the anniversary meeting was held in the Philosophical-hall, when an interesting report was presented of the extensive work in which the society is engaged. -Among the circumstances referred to we raay [ray] notice the following -The opening of a home in the neighbourhood of London, for the children' of the Mis- [Is- Missionaries] sionaries, [missionaries] within the last few weeks, and which has been one of the good fruits resulting from the public commemo- [common- commemoration] ration. The baptism of 5,885 persons in the various mis- [is- missions] sions [Sons] within the year, and the accession of 543 additional communicants to the Lord's Table. Aiso Also] the opating [painting] of a new church in the colony of Sierra Leone, towards the erec- [ere- erection] tion [ion] of which the liberated Africans themselves have con- [contributed] tributed [tribute] most liberally.. Attention was also drawn to the extension of the African Mission to the Yoruba country, where the work is progressing very satisfactorily and it was stated that the socicty [society] is adopting necessary measures to extend the blessings of christianity [Christianity] to our newly ac- [acquired] quired [cured] territories in the Punjaub. [Punjab] The sum raised .by the Huddersfield Association, during the past year, has been 601 11s. 13d.; [d] which, compared with the sum raised for the general purposes of the society in the preceding year, shows an increase of 49 8s, 83d [d The mecting, [meeting] on Monday evening, was addressed by the Rev. J. Bateman, (the Chairman,) the Rev. R. Frost, Incumbent of St. Matthias's Church, Manchester the Rev. C. Hodgson, Rector of Bar- [Barton] ton-le-street [le-street] the Rev. J. Fenn, Minister of Blackheath ; and the Rev. R. Collins, Vicar of Kirkburton. - A PRISONER'S WIFE IN A DILEMMA.-At the Guildhall, on Tuesday, the wife ot a working roan from Linthwaite, named Mary Ann Wild, was summoned before the sitting magistrates, charged with having assaulted the wife of Mr. Quarmby, surgeon, of that village, who prayed that the defendant might be bound over to keep the peace towards her. It appears that Mr. Quarmby had summoned the husband of the defendant in the County Court for a small account owing, and obtained a judgment against him, for non-payment of which he had been sent on a judge's warrant to Halifax gaol. In consequence the wife had repeatediy [repeated] Mrs. Quarmby, and used violent language to- [towards] wards ker. [er] The complainant did not press the case on the woman promising not to offend in the like manner again, and on paying the expenses. The poor woman said she had not a penny, as she had left her children at home without a bite in the house. She was detained in custody until the expenses were paid.' Le, DISTRICT NEWS. DISGRACEFUL PROCEEDINGS IN THE WESLEYAN CHAPEL, NETHERTHONG. EXTRAORDINARY CONDUCT OF THE MINISTER. The Methodist Chapel at Netherthong was on Sunday last a scene of great excitement. It appears this place of worship has from the period of its erection been occupied by the Wcslzyan [Wesleyan] Connexion, and that Mr. Wesley has preached in it himsclf. [himself] Notwithstanding this however,. it has not been enrolled inthe [another] regular way, and is not on what is usually called the conference plan and in consequence the Superintendant [Superintendent] has not absolute power over it, or the ex- [exclusive] clusive [exclusive] right to the pulpit.. This right has on some former occasion been called in question, but perhaps never before 0] strongly contested, as in this case-at any rate not by Wesleyans themselves, and it wouldseem [would seem] that this has been brought about more by accident than design. ,The Trustees state that for more than twelve months, Mr. Wilson, the present circuit Superintendant [Superintendent] has' becn [been] requested to get them a Preacher for their anniversary sermons-that he has either neglected or failed to do so, and that they have at length taken it upon them to get one for themselves. This being the case,-they sought one in harmony with their own views, and with those of the congregation, and who was also an acceptable and useful preacher. Such a one they found in the person of Mr. W. Savage, of Bradford, a respectable reacher, [teacher] but who had recently been deposed from his office by a Wesleyan ecclesiastical tribunal for attending the late delegate meeting in London. The services were announced by public bills for Sunday, the 26th of May- [Maroon] moon.and [and] evening, Mr, Wilson on hearing of this, went about to get thé [the] bills taken down, put his veto on it to the Trustees, and took other strong measures to prevent the services taking place. -.'The Trustees were however equally determined that they should, and thus it became a trial of strength between the contending parties, and the prevailing topic of village conversa ion [conversation ion] The anxiously looked for Sabbath having arrived, Mr. Wilson repaired to the Chapel to take his morning appointment nothing par- [particular] ticular [circular] marked the service until its close, when it was ob- served that the Preacher remained in the pulpit, and refusing to come out, the Chapel doors were closed in the usual way. On re-opening them, the Trustees (who had met in the in- [interim] terim) [merit] found the Preacher still guarding the sacred place. They told him it was not his right, as he was not their ap- [appointed] pointed Preacher that afternoon, and as such they wished him to retire. 'This failing, they reasoned and expostulated with him on the impropriety ofhis [of his] conduct, but all in vain, he replied in an authoritative manner, I am your Superin- [Superior- Superintendent] tendant, [tenant] and no one else shall preach in this Chapel to-day ; I will not leave the pulpit. It was then annoynced [announced] that ms, South Parade, last svening, [evening] to ba- mained [maiden] in the bottom of the Chapel, either té join in, or 'witness the proceedings but these proved a ver refractory [Rev refractory] and disagreeable audience. Still undismayed by doed [died] or word Mr. Wilson at the appointed time commenced the afternoon servite, [service] when a scene of tumult and confusion 6n- [ensued] sued, which it isimpossibie [impossible] to describe. Some verses wore sung, but in which so-few joined thattheir [that their] voices wera [were] almost literally drowned with the discordant noises of others. To sing was difficult, but to y was impossible, and to proach [preach] quite out ef the question. e Trustees left the Preachér [Preacher] to maintain his authority over the Congregation as well aa the pulpit he signally failed in one, and notwithstanding his repeated assertions to the contrary, ho had algo [also] to re- [relinquish] linquish [relinquish] the other. 'The writer was not present, but one who was, and on whom he an rely, has informed him that nothing but tumult and disorder prevailed from the commencement of service-that the Preachtr [Preached] was the object of general contumely and reproach ;-an that at length it rose to such a pitch, that three or four more daring than the rest entered the pulpit, and proved too disgreeable [disagreeable] companions to admit of its guardian remaining in it any longer althoug [although] he maintained to the last that- [that] he would not leave it by foree-the [free-the] sequel is that he immediately left the Chapel also, The Trustees at night brought in Mr. Savage. who preached with great acceptance to an attentive and overflowing congrezation, [congregation] without interruption or an- [annoyance] neyance, [Nancy] leaving the contending parties in the same position as 'before, each having gained a victory, and sistained'a [sustained'a] defeat.-Mr. Wilson is however gencrally [general] blamed-even by some of his friends-for the course he has taken, and the indignance [indignant] of the Thong Society is such as his induced them to call a meeting, to consider the propriety of imme- [Mme- immediately] diately [lately] stopping the supplies. It is but just however to add that it was not the regular congregation that made the dis- [disturbance] turbance, [disturbance] they being at worship in the School at the time. -From a Correspondent.

But how can we as Journalists see the peace ofa [of] neighbourhood and the feelings of a christian congregation in our own locality outraged and be silent If we do remain silent, it will be in the hope that it may prove a lesson.of christian charit [charity] y and jerbear- [Barber- forbearance] ance [once] to men who sit or fancy they sit enthroned in high places. -Ed. H.C. HOLMFIRTH. CuvncH [Conch] Missions.-The annual sermons fer the Holm- [Holmfirth] firth branch of the church missionary society were preached in Holmfirth church, en the morning and evening of Sun- [Sunday] day last. The Rev. F. W. Davis, incumbent of Shepley, officiated at the former service, and delivered a beautiful dis- [discourse] 'course from Isaiah. chap. 60, v. 1 and 2.- Arise, and shine for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For, behold the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. In the evening, a very appropriate se mon on the import- [importance] ance [once] of evangelical missions, was preached by the Rev. R. Frost, M.A., incumbent of St. Matthias's, Manchester. His text was pet of the first verse of the 98th Psalm- His right hand, and his holy arm hath gotten him the victory. On each cccasion, [occasion] a good congregation assembled and the united collections exceeded 8. The aaniversary [anniversary] meeting was held in the National School, on Thursday evening. SunDay [Sunday] ScHooL [School] ANNIVERSARIES.-Amongst the many pleasant gatherings which took place on hitsun-week, [Hudson-week] perhaps none exceeded in pleasurable associations the an- [annual] nual [annual] school feasts, which were celebrated at Nether Thong and Oldfield, on Whit-Monday and Tuesday. At Nether Thong, on the former day, the Sunday scholars connected with the church there, assembled in the school-room and were plentifully regaled with currant-buns and tea. A band of music too further enlivened the scene. And some excellent addresses, suitable to the occasion, were delivered by the rev. the incumbent Mr. George Robinson, of Thong's Bridge Mr, Joseph Woodhead, of U per Thong, and others. Illustrative of the munificent spirit of the church folks in this township, it may.be mentioned that not less than 14 odd was subscribed for carrying out the feast, and this, too, occurring only six weeks after 10 had been collected amongst them for books for the use of the same school.-Connected with N. ether Thong church, and situated from it some half-a-mile, at a place called is a handsome and commodious Sunday school, in which on the Tuesday evening, the annuel [annual] school feast was held. Here, as at Nether Thong, the children were liberally supplied with tea and buns; and, in addi- [add- addition] tion, [ion] each scholar was presented with a prize -- either bible, testament,. or some other suitable book. Nutter's celebrated brass band was in attendance and played pieces of inspiriting music, which of course contributed greatly to the liveliness of the meeting. Ani- [An- Animated] mated speeches were delivered by the Rev. T. J ames, [mes] Mr. G. Robinson, and Mr. Joseph Heap, jun., of Oldfield. To the latter individual, too much praise cannot be accorded for indefatigable exertions in the cause of popular education and to the interests of this institution. It is to him and similar choice efforts that the village of Oldfield is princi- [Prince- principally] pally indebted for being re-claimed from a state of demi- [semi- barbarism] barbarism to the pride of civilization. Small as is the place, and few the inhabitants, it is gratifying to be enable to state that 9 17s. Od. was subscribed to defray the expenses incurred in providing the school feast. ScRcicaL [Surgical] OPERATION.-On Thursday in last week, a man upwards of 50 years old, named Jonathan Hirst, who lives at New Laith, in Austonley, underwent the formidable and difficult ordeal known amongst surgeons as an operation for the relicf [relief] of strangulated hernia. This is at all times a nice and dangerous experiment in surgery, requiring great discrimination and ample anatomical knowledge. Up to this time the man has continued to progress favourably. The operating surgeons were Mr. Charles Trotter, of Helm- [Holmfirth] firth, and his brother, Mr. Edward Trotter, of Newnill, [Newmill] near Holinfirt [Holmfirth] CRICKET Matcu.-Some [Match.-Some] three weeks ago, it may be remembered, it wes [West] chronitled [Chronicle] in the Chronicle, that the clubs of Holmfirth and Nether Thong had been pitted against each other to play a friendly game for a fi'-pun'- [pun] note, on the cricket ground, at Nether Thong, and that the contest ended in a personal encouxter. [encounter] Subsequently it was arranged that a fresh match, for 10s. 2 man, or which side picked up 11, should be played during the current week, on the Holmfirth Cricket Ground; and, according to this arrangement, the match commenced on 'Tuesday morning, and terminated on' Wednesday evening last. The game was very exciting and attractive to a large number of spectators. Although Holmfirth proved victo- [Victor- victorious] tious, [Titus] the Nether Thongers [Thongs] thought no small beer of th Ives and, indeed, considering that their club is of so recent formation, great things may be yet expected from them.

On Friday evening, in last week, a meeting of the rate- [ratepayers] payers of Honley was held in the Town Hall, for 'the- [purpose] urpose [purpose] of taking into consideration tho state of Saint Ficlen'a [Fallen'a] The importance of the subject caused' a numerous attendance. There wers [were] present Joseph France, tleman, [gentleman] Mr. John Littlewood, Enfield House, Mr, John Robinson, Cliffe House, Mr. James Robinson, Well Hill, Mr. Kellett, New Road Terrace, the surveyors of the high- [high] ways, and many farmers, .and cottage rate- [ratepayers] payers. Mr. James Robinson was unanimously called to the chair, To show more the importance of this nesting, and to justify the alarm created in the minds of the inha [ina] bitants [bit ants] of Honley on account of this well, if-may be proper to state the substance of what was said relative to it, before stating tha [that] conclusion to which the imesting [vesting] came. It appears that the well in question is u nies' [ties] remarkable one. It is situated in that part of thetown, [the town] called Thirstin, Where there is 4 dense popylation. [population] It was never known by 'gues [gus] the even tenor of its way, and is had recourse to by all parties, for all purposes in which water may be It was said at the meeting that there ia an account of it in the History of Hahfax, [Halifax] as being a spring to which, at that remote period, cattle were brought from a great distance, in dry seasons, to drink, and the water taken away for other purposes. The watet [water] is of the purest kind, and is said to be equal to that at Ilkley, cither [either] for bathing or nredicinal [medicinal] purposes. Such then is this valuable, or rather invaluable, supply of water, which the inhabitanta [inhabitants] of Honley are in danger of being deprived of; and which has caused great anxioty. [anxiety] The dangor [danger] has arisen from, the operations which have been carried on, in search of water, by Benjamin L. Shaw, Esq., an extensive and enterprising manufaqturer, [manufacturer] whose chief works are at Honley, and who has a mill in the immediate' vici- [vice- vicinity] nity [city] of the well, the water of which has very sensibly diminished during the last week and as the workmen pro- [proceeded] ceeded [needed] the water became lower,-so much so, indeed, as scarvely [scarcely] to fill tho well on the Friday. This cifcumstance [circumstance] roused the fears of the people, the bellman was sent round the towa, [town] and a 'meeting was held, at which the subject 'wag takea [take] up with much warmth of feel- [feeling] ing. t was there said that during the week an interview had been had by some respectable ratepayers, with Mr. Brown, Mr. Shaw's agent; but that gentleman 'treated the matter lightly, and asked them whether they could swear that the water Mr. Shaw's prrc [prc] perty, [petty] and ifso, [ifs] could they swear to tho colour of it, &c., and otherwiso [others] behaved in supercilious manner. Some severe strictures wero [were] passed va hearing this, and various plans of procetding [proceeding] were suggested. Ultimately, howercr, [however] it was prudently and agreed to, that the sur- [Sir- surveyors] veyors [surveyor] should be deputed to wait upon Mr. Shaw himself the net moyning, [morning] and repost [report] the interview in the evening. A resolution was passed to that effect, and the meeting was adjourned till the Saturday night, when the ratepayers again assembled. At thig [this] latter meeting the surveyors stated that they had scen [scene] 'Mr. Shaw, who received thom [tho] very courtsousiy, [courteous] and on stating their business Mr. 9. expressed his regrot [regret] that it should hava [have] been s0; but, inas [ins] much as it w28 [W] zot [not] before known where the witer [winter] sprung from, it could not be said that he had dis- [disturbed] turbed [turned] its course. He contanded [contended] for the right of searching. for water in his own property, and expressed a hope that arrangements might be made by which the water might be restored to the public he also suggested the propriety of letting the subject stand over for a short time, as he appre- [paper- apprehended] hended [ended] he should not himself be able to actompligh [accomplish] the object he had in view, in which caso [case] the works would be stopped, and the water, if it really did run through his property might be loft to run its usual course. On hearing this statement and the gentlemanly spirit in which Mr. Shaw had met the subject, the meeting resolved to call in & competent person to examine the place, in order to see' whether or not any real complaint lay against him, and to ascertain if the water came through his grounds. Mr. Hall, surveyor, &c., of Miinsbridge, [Milnsbridge] was fixed upon, and that gentleman examined the place on the Monday following in the presence of thirteen of the principal ratepayers who been appointed by the meeting to attend him. On arriving on the ground Mr. Hall roquosted [requested] the workmen to suffer him to stop up a breach which they had made ina throw in the rock, they did so, and on the place being stopped up the water began to increase in the well. Afterwards, to test the matter further, a quantity of bran was thrown on the surface of the water and this found its way to the well. This was considered conclusive evidence of the cotitse [Cortes] of the water. What steps will now be taken it is hard to say, but it will be a great calamity to the people of Honiley if they should be deprived of this abundant supply of pure water. Indeed, a great load of odium would in these days of sanitary regulations, rest on any one who should be- [Bethel] the cause of it, but from the well known character of Myr, [Mr] Shaw, nothing of the kind, we think, need be feared, SADDLEWORTH. MEcuHaNiIcs' [Mechanics] InstrtuTE.-On [Institute.-On] Tuesday evening, the 21st May, the monthly social meeting in connection with the- [the mechanics] Mechanics' Institution, was held in the lecture-room, Up- [April] rmill. [mill] It was not so well attended as usually is the ease.- [ease] fr. Barlow read an essay on the origin of the proprietor- [proprietorship] ship of land, and the evils and injustice connected there- [therewith] with. The Rev. Mr. Dyson read a paper on mental philo- [Phil- philosophy] cophy, [copy] and Mr. Lawton recited Southey's well-known piece How the waters come down at Lodore, [Dore, to the great amusement of the meeting. The Saddleworth new brass band was in attendance, and played several popular airs. A company of glee'singers also very ably contributed to the enjoyments of the evening. Mr. Thomas Wood have been the chairman but in his absence Mr. L. Platt acted in that capacity. Mr. Barlow was appointed to pre- [preside] side over the next meeting, which will be held on the 18th June, The meeting broke up at 10 o'clock. StnDay [Sunday] ScHooL [School] ANNIVERSARIES. -Friday, the 24th May, was the gala-day for all the Sunday-schools in Saddle- [Saddleworth] worth. Tho teachers and scholars of the various schools enjoyed themselves in different ways, but all to a greater or less extent in walking in procession along the roads 'of the district. Those of the Independent School, Uppermill,. [Upper mill] perhaps made the greatest, and certainly the most pleasing and rational innovation on the usual practice by proceed- [proceeding] ing from the chapel to a spacious field, granted for the oc- [occasion] 'casion [caution] by B. Bottomley, Esq., in the beautiful 'vale of 'Greenfield, where hampers of refreshments were speedily 'consumed, and several hours most delightfully spent in various games and plays, healthful and exciting, in which persons of all classes, ages, and of both sexes heartily Joined. The day was very fine, and passed away most satisfactorily. But the enjoyments of Whitsuntide have not passed away with the week, inasmuch as Huddersfield will be visited this day (Saturday) by a special train, contamming [containing] the teachers and scholars from Digale [Dale] bridge school, and a considerable detadhment [department] from Boardhurst [Broadhurst] school. Car- [Carriages] riages [carriages] could not'be obtained in Whit-weck [Whit-week] for the supply. of these schools; hence the trip of this day which ig, looked forward to with much excitement by the juvenits [events] portion of those interested in it.
