8 THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, JUNE 1, 1850. ee Dk. WALTS'S [WATS'S] LECTURE ON EDUCATION. (Continued from the 7th page.) Huddersfield were to lay a rate and assas [asses] two partics [parties] at 200, and one at 50, but let off all others without paying a penny, for a purpose which would effect a public good, that would be a shoving of the duty on to the shoulders of the willing horses, and the result was, as was natural, that the best-interitioned [best-intervention] men got tired, and henee [hence] the disgrace- [disgraceful] ful [full] state of suciety [society] as we found it at present. The lecturer then remarked that he would now wait for any remarks might have to.make, and resumed his seat amidst applause. .- . The called upon, any party in the meet- [meeting] ing, who had any objections. to urge against the plan developed by Dr. Watts, to state those objections to the meeting. After a pause, and no one. offering any oppo- [op- oppose] OMe. [One] Witu1sM [Wits] Moore said it had afforded him great pleasure to hear the development of the plan of the Lan- [An- Lancashire] eashire [shire] Association; and, knowing that there was a dif- [if- difference] ference [France] of epinion [opinion] on the question. he felt sorry that no person had come foyward [forward] in opposition-for so strong wore the prejudices of some parties, he was fearful that even the luminous address of Dr. Watts would havo. [have] failed of convincing them. (Hear, hear.) He-muat [He-must] confess that he did not like these quiescent meetings. (Hear, hear.) He knew that if society was not stirred up now and then with a long pole there was no good to be done. (Laughter.) 'There were many persons present who advocated a sectarian ducat'oa, and he was certain the meeting would be giad [gad] to hear them. True they could not convince him, for he was convinced already that anything like sectarianism in educa.. [Edgar] tion [ion] was a.great evil. (Hear, hear.) That it had. been the curse of the human race (cheers), and ignorance had. been its bane but he was happy te there was such an advance of liberal feeling, and he felt certain that the una- [ina- unanimity] nimity [immunity] evinced that night must have been very satisfactory to Dr. Watts, although he (the speaker) would be-bound ter [te] it that the Doctor would have liked a tussle. (Choers.) [Cheers] - The demeanour of the meeting was one of the best indica- [India- indications] tions [tins] of the advancement of the age. He could recollect the time when an audience in this town could not have Leen [Lee] entertained by such a subject, change made him prouder of Huddersfield every day; and he would again reiterate what he had many times before said, that there was not a more intelligent population in any town than that of Huddersfield. But they were indebted to a variety of cireumstances [circumstances] for this, and among other agencies let them not depreciate voluntaryisin [involuntary] (hear, hear) which had done a great amount of good but still he was quije [quite] sensible that there was a vast amount of igno- [ing- ignorance] rance [France] among the enlightened population of Huddersiteld. [Huddersfield] Hear, hear, and cries of there is you're right, Moore. But, inasmuch as voluntaryism [voluntary] entailed many evils on so- [society] ciety, [city] let them set aside their prejudices upon.this subject, and unite upon one general plan of education, which was likely to embrace the whole human family. (Hear, hear.) It. was.a great tax upon his natural modesty to have to stand before them, but he could not help it. (Roars of laughter.) However, he had long been a public man, and was at all times ready to. do all in his. power to promote the interests of the town and neighbourhood. With these hrief [grief] remarks, he begged to move the following resolution That this meeting approves. of the Lancashire Pian [Pain] of Educa- [Edgar- Education] tion, [ion] and authorises a petition to Parliament in favour of its nitional [national] establishment; and it further hopes for the organization of wi association in this town and this mveting [meeting] also tenders its est thanks to Dr. Watts for his interesting and eloquent lecture. JOSEPH BaTLeY, [Batley] Esq., at the cail [ail] of the meeting, then 'steod [Stead] forward to second the resolution. He said-Mr. Chairman and gentlemen, Iam [I am] here this evening to hear the cpinions [opinions] of others rather than to offer any of my own ; but it appears that some disappointment is likely to take place, and therefore I will say a few words. (Hear.) It was natural to expect that there would have been a few eyponents [opponents] to this scheme. I cannot appear in that character, for I have long been of opinion as to its necessity. (Hear Whatever difference of opinien [opinion] there may be as to the expense and scheme of popular education, I think I may take it for granted that we shall ayree [are] as to its im- [in- importance] portance [importance] and necessity. (Hear.) I should form a very low estimate of that man's character who could contem- [cont- contemplate] plate the intellectual destitution, the poverty, and crime, and misery which exists in this country, and could sit down unecnscious [unconscious] cf the obligations imposel [imposed] on him to remove it. (Hear.) That man may heave brains in his head, but he has no heart in his body. (Cheers.) I am awere [were] that I skall [small] incur the opposition of some valued friends, when I declare that unaided voluntary effort is not sufficient to mect [met] the educational necessities of the people, (hear, hear,) in all places and under all circumstances. f know that 1 shall be greatly misrepresented if I speak dis- [disparagingly] poragingly [originally] of the exertions of voluntary benevolence, but it would ill become me-with our national and infant schools,-colleges and Sabbath schools,-I say it would ul become me heve [eve] tu speak contemptuously of voluntary benevolence; but when I take into consideration the whole ecuntry-the [country-the] larze [large] manufacturing districts -and es pecially [specially] the acricu tural [Africa trial] districts, where wages have beén [been] brought down to thesiarvation [preservation] point, and where the mental and moval [oval] condition of the people is in such unisen [unison] with their physical destitution,--1 cannot indulge a reasonable kope [rope] that voluntary efforts can provide schools for such a pepulation. [population] (Cheers.) This opinion may from me be thought Inconsistent and somewhat heretical by friends of my own denomination, but after ail I have heard or read, I cannot ceeme [seem] to any other congiusion.. [conclusion] (Hear may be ccndemned [condemned] by som2 [some] valued friends. for holding such aa oyinien, [opinion] but T have uo feer [free] of condemnation before the tri- [ti- tribunal] tenal [teal] of pubic opinion, when th's questien [question] shall heve [eve] under- [undergone] thorough search and national examination. (Cheers.) 'f. those of you who agree in this opinion a. vary izzportant [important] question naturally arises. Wo rustanswerit. If the pre- [present] scnt [sent] edneation [education] is not sufficient, by what means or on what princnule [principle] can an education saficiently [sufficiently] extensiva, [extensive] universal, and efficient, a2 to deserve the name of National, boprovided [provided] (Hearhear.) [Hear hear] Wehave [Have] the government plan which is basod [based] partly on private charity, and partly on grauts [grants] from the pebbc [pubic] pwse. [pose] I give Ministers eredit [credit] for the sincerity in which they pronosed [proposed] that plan. I have no sympathy with those persons who challenced [challenge] them with an attack, m [in] that on the dissenting body. (Hear.) I qannot [cannot] believe thit [that] such men as the Marquis of Lansdowne, Lord John and especially such a man as the Ear .of Carlisi [Carlisle] 5 beought [brought] forward this measure with the covert design of. raising the Church on the humiliation of disseat. [diseases] (Cheers.) J act them af any such design; on the contrary, the wholz [whole] of the published letters of tha [that] Committee of Council show adetermination [determination] on their part to act impartially towards 2 sects. (Hear. hear.) But I think the government plan is objectionable for tworeasons, [two reasons] It is a systern [system] of government y. and gevernment [Government] patronage, Te affirm thatal l [that l] theschovl [school] misters, a great number of assistant teachers and monitors, who depend upon the patronage of a government functionary could act freely and independently, and without, that con- [control] trol [trial] having some influence on the national spirit and upon their own con'luct, [con'Lucy] shows a lameniatls [laments] iznezance [innocence] of human nature, (Hear hear.) I therofore [therefore] object toit [toot] but I have ancthor [another] objection, and it may se2m [seem] strange as coming from me,andathat [me,Nathan] ie-that the sovernment [Government] schemeenjoins [scheme enjoins] religions teaching. (lear) [real] This very condition compels indirectly evory [every] school to be a sectarian school, I would rather pre- [prefer] fer the less evil, and leave education to the voluntary principle-imperfect as I believe it to be-rgther [be-rather] than teach bigotted [bigoted] exclusiveness. (Hear, hear.) But we are not shut up by the alternative of accepting ither other] the one or the other. Iam [I am] happy to find it possible to devise a plan which will meet the necessity of the case. But it scoms [Scots] hat eny [any] systema [system] of asecular [secular] kind is destined to meet with great opposition. (Hear.) Beitsothen. [Batsmen] Let the merits of this question pags [page] through the ordeal of public examina- [examine- examination] tion. [ion] I do not regret the esamination [examination] of this subject I have no fear of the result cf the investicr.tion. [investing.ion] The oppo- [op- opponents] rents of education wiil [will] again have their war-cry. he s cries will be- The interes.a [interest.a] of r.I gion [Gin] wll [will] be eaerificed; [arrived] it will be a Godless education ;-we shall be a nativn [native] of Atheists,'-they this draw a distorted ecricature. [creature] and then say to the public how frightful it is But, Sir, we are not to be misled. I believe these fears to be entircly [entirely] gicundless.. [groundless] Any in- [influences] fizences [finances] they may draw from the Branch and Prussian sysigins [skins] avails them nothing, We are not in danger ofa [of] system here, for think the first system of the government caused them to well understand that Envlish- [English- Establishment] men will never surrender to apy [pay] government, the contrel [control] and manegement [management] of their children's (Hear, hear, and cheers.) I think the word secular has been misrepregonted. [misrepresented] (Hear. hear.) They represent it as excluding crerything [everything] cf a reiigious [religious] kind that eversthiny [everything] referring to the domestic duties of M KE are excluded. Now, fur my part, 1 never understocd [understood] it in any such war. it only oxclades [excluded] se2tarian [sectarian] religign, [religion] not non-denornin [non-denouncing] tional, [national] non-sectarian ; ji. does not exclude the teaching cf the cblivaticns and waties [Waiters] of life but wuen [when] persons are driermined [drier mined] a thing gna.

Thope [Hope] the period is approach- [approach] igs [is] When public cpinion [opinion] In this country will reeopmise [repose] one which is this-that the property of this country respopsinle [responsible] and to be made avail ike [like] for the intel- [intellectual] mctual [mutual] necessiues [necessity] whole pesple.

The iaw [saw] com- [compels] pels [pele] us to provide for indigenes, and feed those who can- [cannot] not feed themselves. We provitle [provide] for the helpless poor, and I ask is hopeless, helpless education to be left to the careless, the fitful exertions of private charity (Cheers.) I trust not, Now, under this systom, [system] the funds would not pass through the hands of government officials, but would emanate froma [from] board of men elected by the men who would find the money. think the voice which arises fron [from] that deep degradation, that moral destitution, in this coun- [con- country] try, is as loud and as imperious as that which calls for sup- [support] port for helpless indigence-ihear, [indigence-hear] hear,)-and I sincerely hope we shall live to see a school in every part of this king- [kingdom] dom, and that every child.can.there.go to learn to read, and write, acquire the rudiments of arithmetic and grami- [gram- grammar] mar, and thus prepare the youthful mind for the reception ef any kind of truth. (Hear, hear.) I havo. [have] endeavoured to ascertain what would be the result of such a system, and I cannot bring my mind to believo [believe] that it would be inju- [ing- injury] r.ous; [; .ous] but the.opponents. of such a measure write as ifa [if] system of national education would silence every Christian minister, shut up every chapel and Bible class, and put to -sleep-the tract-distributor-but I think the very opposite would be.the result. (Hear, hear.) I think it will not re- [require] .quire any great length of time to find men coming forward and supporting this principle-meon [principle-men] who are anxious to pro- [promote] mote the spread of Christianity, and who are anxious to iadoctrinate [indoctrinate] the nation with Christianity. (Hear, hear.) There are many who have hitherto kept silent who will not keep silent much longer. If I did- [didn't] not believe in the sys- [says- system] tem [te] of elementary edueation [education] for these young children-if I believed it would be prejudical [practical] to.thcir' [to.their] religious feclings [feelings] and mora [more constituticn-if [constitution-if] I did not believe, from my heart, that it would be the hand-maid te-religious instruction, and to their best interests for time and for eternity- [eternity] I would be ashamed to stand here advocating the cause I do on this platform. (Cheers.) But I will confirm my views, by. quoting a passage on Sunday-schools, from Dr. Hamilton, a man vhose [those] opinion will be treated by many present with respect. (Cries ofhear, [of hear] hear.) Dr. says Most happy would it be if every child.that entered suck a school was thoroughly grounded ments [rents] it is seifapparent [sprint] do nos constitute knowledge, but are particular means of attaining it. Knowledge might then be immediately pursued. Every mind would' be prepared and quickened for its investigation. Again, the same authority, speaking on seeular [secular] education, says [says] should we be told that, if religion do not attend and direct the teachings of the human mind, general knowledge must be injurious we instantly declare against the sentence. We see in the spread of sound information, and in the enlargement of human faculty, a great antidote of vulgar errors and crimes. Weare sure, all things being equal, that the least stored mind will be mast addicted to the grosser vices. Knowledge, blessing, may be abused to evil ignerance [ignorance] can never he tured [cured] to good. If knowledge in its perverse misapplication en uncertain good 3 ignorance is, m [in] every way, only a necessary evil. ive any knowledge worthy of the name without, if you cannot give it with religion, you sccure [secure] a great present advantage. (Hear, hear.) Ido not, however, approve of the whole of the Lancashire system-I do not approve of some of the details-some of which I consider impracticable. Ishould [Should] also prefer educational districts instead of town- [township] ship committees. However, the principle is right, inas- [ins- inasmuch] much as this plan would make every man contribute to the national schools, open to the children. of every persen [person] and of every denomination, and therefore I second the zesolution. [resolution] Mr. Batley resumed his scat amidst applause. The meeting was next addressed by Mr. RicitanD [recited] who. was of opinion that pauperism and crime were mainly caused by our heavy taxation, rather than by our imperfect system of education. The.Rev. Mr. MONTGOMERY considerod [considered] that government had devised the best scheme that the sectarian spirit of the country would allow. He agreed with Mr. Batley and othors [others] that so far. from increased cducation [education] destroying the azocations [actions] of the pulpit and Sunday schools, that it would largely increase their measure of usefulness. He re- [remarked] marked.that [that] at present the majority ofcengrogations could not follow. the preacher in' his discourse, and hence they complained that the discourse was dry but this arose from the hearers not being sufficiently up to the mark to appreciate it. The speaker then proceeded to express himself in the main favourable to the Lancashire plan, though at the same time he was decidedly in favour of the bill Erought [Brought] in by Mr. Fox, the Member for Oldham, and the conduct evinced by Lord John Russell, in connection with which, he strongly condemned. The Chairman, efser [ese] a few words from Mr. Batley, put the resobation, [resolution] which was carried with only two dissentients. Dr. Warts then briefly acknowledged the vote, and thanks having been awarded to T. P. Crosland, Esq., on the motion of Mr. W. P. England, which that gentleman. briefly acknowledged, the proceedings terminated at half- [half past] past ten, p.m. - SS MEETING OF THE HUDDERSFIELD BOARD OF GUARDIANS, YESTERDAY. The usual meeting of the Board was held at their rooms, in Albion-street, yesterday, (Friday,) Matruew [Mature] Sykes, Esq., in the chair. The following members of the Board Morchouse, [Moorhouse] Tulson, [Wilson] Hayley, Bottomley, Littlewood, Leech, Charlesworth, Johnson, Shaw, Oates, Holmes, Haigh, Brighouse, Pogson, Quarmby, Rev. J. M. Maxtield, [Maxfield] Lumb, Meuvr, [Mr] B. Hirst, and Moodicliff. [Medical] From the statement of account read by the Deputy-clerk, it appeared that the balance in the hands of the treasurer STATE OF THE UNION WORKIIOUSES, [WORKHOUSE] The CLERK read the reports presented by the Visiting houses, which had been drawn up and presented, in conse- [cone- consequence] quence [Queen] of certain alleged irregularities said to exist therein by the Poor-law Inspectors. The committecs [committee] for Ahnond- [And- Almondbury] bury, Honley, and Golear [Golcar] paor-houses [pair-houses] did not report. The following are abstracts of the two reports in question ;- HUDDERSFIELD WoRKHOUSE.-In [Workhouse.-In] reference to the two lame beys who did not go to school, the reason assigned by the master was their inability to walk so far, but the com- [committee] mittee [matter] had requested the opinion of the medical officer as to their fitness, and in case he thought them capable of walk ng the distance they would be sent forthwith. The commitiee [committee] saw no chance of reducing the number of in- [inmates] mates, there being no means of increasing the workhouse accommodation, nor yet any inmates they could discharge. iad [aid] intimated that he was not aware that such was the case, but arrangements had been made by which this would be provided against in future. Smoking by inmates was a matter left to the control of the master and medieal [medical] officer, but tie committee had recommended that in future it be avoided as much as possible. Religious services were performed on Wednesdays by a church minister, on Sun- [Sundays] days by the Wesleyans, and prayers read regularly. night and maming. [naming] Part of the inmates go out to their regular places of worship on the Sunday, but re- [returned] turned in a satisfactory manner, The commiitee [committee] also reported that they had no complaints to make concerning the hospital, ihe [the] condition of the inmates being as as could be expected among that class of persons, With regard to the other matters enumerated in the report of the Poor Law Commissioners, the commitice [commit ice] intimated that they were about to be remedied. They also reported that jhe [the] cleanliness, ventilation, andaccommodation [and accommodation] of the house was as good as it could be under the circum- [circus- circumstances] stances the inmates were healthy, and employed in land, garden, and hcouse-work [house-work] and the establishment on the whole was cquducted [conducted] in asatisfactory [satisfactory] manner. . KIRKHEATON WorkKuOUSE.-The [Workhouse.-The] visiting committee re- [reported] ported in answer to the strictures of the Poor Law Board, that the house is well yentilated, [ventilated] and that the linen, bedding, and clothing of the inmates were in a cleanly and orderly state, In the case of the woman who was recently confined in a bed in the woman's day room, that circumstance arose from her confinement, taking place in the night-time, when all the inmates were in bed. They added that part of the committee met oncea [once] fortnight, that allcopies [all copies] of the poor laws amendment act, sent to the matron, were hung up in the workhouse, that divine service was conducted every sab- [bas- sabbath] bath day in the workhouse by Primitive Methodists, and every fortnight by an Independent Minister; that the Rec- [Rector] tor of Kirkheaton attended on week-days to read prayers end give religious instruction, and that such of the children as were able attended a day school, Grace was also now said before and after meat, and the children duly baptised. Knives and forks were supplied to the inmates, and as to ithe [the] inmates engaged in houscheld [household] work being improperly atiowed [allowed] beer, the comiuitice [communities] thought the practicea [practice] properone [proper one] under proper restrictions; and the smoking and wear- [wearing] ing their own clothing, were under the approval of the medical cfficer, [office] that gentleman, on the latter-mentioned subject, thinking, with the cammitiee, [committee] that though there were clothes provided ky the Union for all the inmates, that it was nut desirable that those in a weak stete [state] of rind should be compelicd [compelled] to wear them. .......Mr. MoREHOUSE, [Warehouse] after some desultory diseussion, [discussion] remarked that it really was very important that these young childyen [children] should be taught in thase [these] branches of houschoid [housemaid] dvtyand [dividend] that moral training which in all probability they would acquire if with their parents, such as sewing, shoo- [shocking] making, knitting, and not treat them as mere children all the time they were in the house...... Mr. J, Eastwoop [Eastwood] filly in the desiaullitz [defaulters] of suck a course, but reminded sand was purchasel [purchase] last year of him by t the board that Inspector Manwaring, who made these com- [complaints] plaints, was the very man who refused, some time.ago, to sanction the establishment of a school of that kind for the children of the union, and the result was that which had been matter of complaint in Mr. Manwaring's report......It was ultimately decided to.defer the further this matter for a fortnight, in order that the visiting com- [committees] mittees [committees] of the other places named in these charges might in the meantime-bxing [meantime-being] up their reports. CHOLERA ExpENSES.-The [Expenses.-The] CLERK intimated that the auditor had adjourned his audit for a fortnight, in order that the board might have an opportunity of making a correction in the distribution of the expenses incurred last summer in connection witk [wit] the Cholera Hospital, which was erected at Paddock. The plan which had been adapted was to charge two-thirds of the expense on the township from which a patient was sent, and one-third to the charges which were paid in common by the whole union. 'To this the auditor objected, and required, ere he passed the accounts, that the whole sum bg charged to the common charges of the union, unless it cofild [could] be distinctly shown that the party sent by a township had a, settlement there.... ..Mr. J, Eastwoop [Eastwood] thought that, inasmuch as the board had no voice in the matter, it was an insult to ask them to re-consider the distribution of those expenses....... Mr. MOREHOUSE thought the making thé [the] expenses of this cholera hospital an union charge was.a great hardship on those townships at a distance, which could. not, by their great distance, have availed themselves of this hospital in case cholera had occurred among them, and it was well known that the cholera hospital was erected in conseyuence [consequence] of the ravages of that disease-at. Paddock, and-from the fear entertained that it might, from that locality, extend itself into Huddersfield,......The Rev. Mr. MAXFIELD took a different view of the matter, and thought, and at the time, though not a guardian, anticipated' that this would be an union charge.......Mr. MOREHOUSE then moved that the Auditor be requested to adjourn his audit for a month, and that in the mean time the Clerk lay beiore [before] the Board in London a statement of the case, asking their opinion respecting the same....... My. J. Eastwoop [Eastwood] seconded the motion, and answered the line of argument of Mr. Max- [Maxfield] field, after which the motion was agreed to unanimously. The Board then stood adjourned for a fortnight. LATEST INTELLIGENCE. BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH. Loxpon, [Loxton] Fripay [Friday] NIGHT.

HOUSE OF LORDS. Thursday, May 30. BREACH OF PRIV ILEGE.-Lord [PRIVY LEGGE.-Lord] BrovucHaM [Brougham] called the attention of their lordships to a breach of privilege, con- [consisting] sisting [sitting] in a tissue of misstatements in two papers (the Globe and Daily News) with reference to his conduct ina recent divcrze [divorce] bill. One of those papers (the (lube) had done all in-its power to repair the injury, but the other had not done so, and if at the next sitting of the house he felt as he did at that moment, he would certainly move that the printer be called to the bar. After the transaction of some other unimportant busimess, [business] the orders of the day were disposed of and their adjourned. -- HOUSE OF COMMONS, Thursday, May 30, The only public business appointed for the morning sit- [sitting] ting was the third reading of the Elections Bill. A clause proposed by the Attorney-General tor appomting [appointing] additional polling places upon petition from Justices 'in Quarter Sessions, which was ayreed [agreed] to, and a clause muved [moved] by Mr. French, authorizing the appointment of additional polling places on the petition of 300 electors, which was negatived, occupied the house until 3 o'clock, when a suspension of business took place. . Sunpay [Sunday] LaBoUR [Labour] IN THE Post Ovrrice.-Lord [Office.-Lord] ASHLEY moved an address to Her Majesty to take measures to stop throughout the United Kinzdum [Kingdom] the collection and delivery of Tetters [Letters] and the transmission of mails on Sunday. Lord Ashley fortified his proposal by arguments drawn from the sanctity of the Sabbath, which was vivlated [violated] by Sunday labour from a sense of injustice to the Post- [Post office] office servants, and from sanitary considerations. ...... The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER, in opposing the motion, acknowledged the deep feeling which had been manifested upon this subject, and subscribed to Lord estimate of the value of the Sabbath day. But the motion, to eect [erect] its object, must go much further, if no work was to be per- [performed] formed on Sunday gor, [for] besides Post-office servants, police- [policemen] men, excise-officers, the coast-guard, anil [ail] others wero [were] em- [employed] ployed [played] on that day. No person could desire more than he did that Sunday labour should be reduced to a min tian, [tin] and within the last two years there had been miere-redue- [more-reduce- reduction] tions [tins] in the amount of this labour than in the preceding half-century yet for the last six months the government had been assailed with the grossest misstatements, anc [an] the very measure by which they had cadeavoured [endeavoured] to lessen Sunday labour at the Post-office had been taken up asa the direction. The effect of thas [has] measure had been, by the temporary cmployment [employment] ef 25 additional clerks fora few manths, [months] to religts [religious] .000 persons in the United Kingdom, and not only employment of these 25 persons been since discontinved, [discontinued] but 27 others, heretofore employed on Sundays in Loncton, [London] had been re- [reduced] duced [duce] to four. No person in the post-oilice [post-police] was now debar- [debarred] 'red from attending Divine service Colonel Thompson and Mr. Forster having spoken aguinst [against] the motion, and Mr. Muniz [Minis] and Mr. Plumptre [Plump] in its favour, the motion was carried by 93 arainst [against] 68. THE JEW J. RUSSELE [RUSSELL] moved the house re- [resolve] solve itself into a committee that he might obtain to bring in a bill to regulate the mode of administering the oath of abjuration to persons professing the Jewish religion. - He aid not intend, he said, to go into any statement uvon [upon] the subject, ba should explain upon ihe [the] second reading of the bill the reasons upon which it was founded. There was much uncertainty as to the law, whether members of the Jewish persuasion might not be admitted to take the oaths in a similar manner as members of the Society of Fricnds; [Friends] but he thoughtit [though tit] most desirable that both houses Should have an opportunity of considering the question in all its bearing. After an intimation from Mr; Newdevate [Devote] and Mr, Plumptre [Plump] that they would oppose on second ren- [rending] ding, leave was- [was given] given to bring in the bill. 'Fhe [He] House adjourned at 8 p.m. es LANCASHIRE AND YORKSHIRE INCREASE oF ToLLs.-On [Tolls.-On] Tuesday, the House of Commons Committee passed same fnportunt [important] resolutions with respect to the bill of the Lancashire inl [in] Yorkshire Company for alterations in. and further p wer [we] for levying tolls. The Committee are of opinion that 20 per cent. should be added to the tariZ [tariff] in the case of passengers, and that the Company be empowerel [empowered] to levy fractional charges as proposed by the bill, eXeepting [excepting] as regards parliamentary passengers; but the Clamittee [Committee] wil not sanction the additional charge tor terminal expenses. 'Phe [The] committee are also of opinion that 20 per cent. be ad- [added] ded [de] to the tariff for cattle and goods, bet not ceal [cal] ; to alow [low] 23d. per ton for corn. or to give the 20 per cent. udJitional [additional] upon the present tariff, but not fer both; that as svon [son] as a dividend of 8 per cent. per annum be declared, the advange [advance] now given shall be open tg PorEmentary [Elementary] revision, hearty were which he received, as the the first time this eminent Mr Marson nd.
