THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1850. 3 Me Se a lag a MEMORIES OF THE DEAD. Weep not for the dead Thy sighs and tears are unavailing ; ainly only] o'er their cold, dark bed Breaks the voice of thy loud wailing The dead, the dead, they rest ; Sorrow, and strife, and earthly woes No more shall harm the blest, [best] Nor trouble their deep calm repose, Weep not for the dead ; But oh weep sore for those Who bend with grief-defiled head O'er their untimely graves complaining. The dead, the dead, no more Shall fill our aching hearts and eyes ; But heaven hath left us store Of sweet and blessed memories, As stars through dark skies stealing, With tender, holy light ; As tongues of sweet bells pealing, Upon the deep still night ; Sv, on the spirit streaming, A solemn light is shed ; And long-loved tones come teeming With memories of the dead. As clouds drawn up to heaven Return in softest showers, Like odours which are given Sweetest from bruised flowers, Sad thoughts, with holy calming The wounded heart o'erspread, [o'er spread] In fragrant love embalming The memories of the dead.

Matrimony is Many noble creatures enter it, run round and round, and kick up a fine dust, but few get properly trained and broken to it. Sensibility would be a good portress, [reports] if she had but one hand; with her right hand she opens the door to pleasure, but with her left to pain. To know exactly how much mischief may be ventured upon with impunity is knowledge sufficient for a little great man, The proportion of will and power is not always reci- [rice- reciprocal] procal. [pro cal] A copious measure of will is sometimes assigned to ordinary and contracted minds; whilst the greatest faculties as frequently evaporate in indolence and languor. How To ENLARGE VEGETABLES.-A vast increase of food may be obtained by managing judiciously and BY8- [BY- Automatically] tematically [mathematical] carrying out for a time the principles of increase. Take, for instance, a pea; plant it in very rich ground; allow it to bear the first year, say half a dozen pods only; remove all others; save the largest single pea of these; sow it the next year, and retain of the produce three pods only; sow the largest the fol- [following] lowing year, and retain one pod again select the largest, and next year the sort will, by this time, have trebled its size and weight. Ever afterwards sow the largest seed, and, by these means, you will get peas, or any- [anything] thing else, of a bulk of which we have at present no conception Boston Cultivator. An ABLE JuRYMaN.- [Juryman.- Juryman] At a recent quarter sessions held, not in one of the midland counties, a girl with a child in her arms was indicted for stealing some sugar. The case was clear and plain, and the foreman of the jury returned a verdict of Guilty, with a strong recommendation to mercy. The chairman, rather un- [unadvisedly] advisedly, begged to ask upon what grounds as reasons are not always very satisfactory with the gen- [gentlemen] tlemen [gentlemen] of the petit [petite] jury; when from the other end of the row up jumped a hero, and said, Because, sir, we didn't [did't] think she done it The poor chairman sat in amazement, and the court in a roar of laughter. potting like a unanimous jury. Wester Flying ost. [out] ALL For THE Best.-A devout philosopher came to a town whose gates were closed. Hungry and thirsty, he was obliged to pass the night in the open air. He said God sends is good, and laid himself down. Near him stood his ass, at his side a burning lantern, on account of the insecurity of the country. But a storm arose and extinguished his light, a lion came and de- [devoured] voured [poured] his ass. He awoke, found himself alone, and said, What God sends, is good, and waited quietly for the dawn of day. When he came to the gates, he found them open, the town devastated, robbed, and plundered. A gang of robbers had invaded it during the night, and had killed or taken the inhabitants away prisoners. He was spared. Said I not, exclaimed he, that all that God sends is good. Only generally it is not until the morning that we see why he denied us something in the evening. Tue Taree Frienps-A [Friends-A] man had three friends. Two of them he loved exceedingly; to the third he was indifferent, though he was the most sincere. One day, he was summoned before the justice for a matter of which he was innocent. Who among you, said he, will 80 with me, and witness for me The first of his friends excused himself immediately, on pretence of other busi- [bus- business] ness. The second accompanied him to the door of the tribunal, but there he turned, and went back for fear of the judge. The third, upon whom he had least depended, Went in, spoke for him, and witnessed his innocence so cheerfully, that the judge released him, and made him 4 present besides. Man has three friends in this world. How do they behave in the hour of death, when God summons him before the judgment seat Gold, his best iend, [end] leaves him first.

ORIGIN OF THE BANKING-HOUSE OF SmirH, [Smith] Payne, anp [an] a borough town of importance, in one of the north midland counties, dwelt a respectable draper, possessing a good connection with the farmers frequent- [frequenting] ing the market of the town. Although the name of Robin Hood had long lost its terrors, those of Turpin and Nevison filled all men's minds with fear-and with good reason; for they and their fraternity exercised their calling with such energy and success, that it was always a matter of doubt with travellers whether or not they should arrive in safety at the next inn or their destination, whatever that might be. With the farmers above alluded to there were more than ordinary grounds of alarm; the town almost adjoining the scene of the far-famed exploits of Robin Hood and his merry men was admirably situated for a levy by their less romantic successors of extemporaneous taxes. To avoid as much as possible the losses thus arising, farmers, having full confidence in the honesty of the draper with whom they dealt, made him the depository of their ready cash. Ready cash of his friends was to our draper as valuable as capital of his own, and buying for ready money was profi- [profit- profitable] table; still money remained idlein [idle] his hands,and by degrees heextended [he extended] accommodation to hisneighbours. [his neighbours] Ourdraper [Our draper] now becomes famous for his extraordinary command of money, and his correspondence extended as far as Preston, in Lancashire. The profits thus arising seemed boundless, and the next step was taken by our adven- [aden- adventurous] turous [tumorous] shopkeeper. Such was the origin of the Smiths. First confined to the town of Nottingham, afterwards extended to Hull and Lincoln, the business of the firm required a London correspondent entirely in their interest, and such they found in the late Mr. Payne. And thus was founded the well-known firm of Smith, Payne, and Smith, whose prosperous career it is not our business to follow.-Lawson's History of Banking. Antiquity oF a work just pub- [published] lished, [wished] entitled A Pilgrimage to the Land of my Fathers, by the Rev. Moses Margoliouth, [Goliath] we find a letter addressed to the Bishop of Norwich, in which the pilgrim author indulges in a disquisition on the ancient order of freemasons [Freemasons] and as Mr. Margoliouth [Goliath] is a mem- [men- member] ber [be] of the confraternity, he deserves to be listened to. The author appears to be a zealous freemason, [Freeman] but his zeal, in this as in all his views, is tempered with mode- [moderation] ration. He does not run up the pedigree of the craft to Adam, to Noah, to Joshua; nor does he even trace it to Solomon. He is satified [satisfied] to espouse the institution, to laud and magnify it, because he considers its origin to be contemporaneous with Christianity. Nor does he seem a determined believer in the universality of the institution. Mr. Margoliouth [Goliath] came across a curious Jewish amulet whilst at Tunis, and this incident afforded him the opportunity of giving Dr. Stanley a bit of his mind on the subject. Itis [Its] his opinion that freemasonry is closely allied to, if not the offspring of Christianity and hence he argues the secrecy. There is nothing in freemasonry, he holds, which might not be profitably learned by every human being. But in the infancy of Christianity, which he considers to be the infancy of freemasonry, when its professors were searched out with great vigilance and assiduity, it was necessary to keep their meeting houses as profound secrets, which were only known to the initiated by some apparently insignificant, but very expressive signs. In like manner were brother isti [est] known to each other. Mr. Margoliouth [Goliath] then enters at some length into a successful demonstration between the various emblems used in ancient ecclesiastical architecture, and those used by the order of freemasons. [Freemasons] He discusses the use of the intersected triangles, the five-pointed star, the hand, the fish, the key, the pavement, &c. Respecting the fish he thus writes This unpretend- [pretend- unpretending] ing symbol was in general use amongst the early Chris- [Christians] tians, [tins] and almost the only sign by which Christian tombs were known. In former days the grand master used to wear a silver fish on his person; but it is to be regretted that, amongst the many innovations which have been of late introduced into the society, to conciliate the prejudices of some, who cannot be con- [consistently] sistently [persistently] members of it, this beautiful emblem disap- [dis- disappeared] peared. [pared] It still exists in many Christian churches, and masons in theory. In the appendix Mr. Mar- [Goliath] goliouth [cloth] quotes Tertullian and Clement, of Alexandria, in elucidation of this important subject. Eneuiso [Ens] Coarity.-A [Charity.-A] new ward is to be built in an hospital. Experience proves that, to demonstrate the necessity and utility of such an addition is but second- [secondary] ary [art] necessary. The promoters know that, to succeed, they must get the undertaking graced with the names and patronage of half-a-dozen peers, a sprinkling of the House of Commons, and a judicious selection from wealthy neighbours. The list is published, and sub- [subscriptions] scriptions [descriptions] flow in. Why do they flow in Because the undistinguished rich-the mob of gentlemen who pay with ease-have, too often, a morbid desire to find their names ranged along side those of good dukes. peers, and M.P.'s. The truth is, deep, sympathising, effectual benevolence does not often find its way into the subscription list. Neither does it go about in mysterious melo-dramatic [mel-dramatic] disguise, on purpose to be found out and be all the more blazoned; but, with unostentatious [ostentatious] earnestness, gives its intellect and its time, as well as its money, to the needy and the suffering. It discrimi- [describe- discriminates] nates, [Bates] inquires, and affords judicious help rather than unqualified alms which, though it may bless the giver, seldom blesses the receiver; unless in cases of utter helplessness. Meek charity never thrusts her hand into her purse with the bouncing let-me-know-what-I have-to-pay,-and-have-done-with-it, profusion of a rich sthseriber. thereby. She is a great economist for, had she illions, [millions] she could set onver [over] and heal all the sores of poverty that cover the land. She kuvwe [give] that unwise profusion to one case is gross injustice to many others that must be consequently neglected.-Dicken's House- [Household] hold Words. No. 27. THE SHEFFIELD MANUFACTURERS AND THE EXHIBITION OF 1851.-The [W.-The] number of firms who have applied for space is 159, and the space they ask for is 5,500 feet. Among the claims sent are the following -Silver fruit and dessert knives, by 15 houses; German silver and Britannia metal, 7; silver and plated goods, 11; table knives, 17 files, 13 ; joiners' and edge tools, 11; pen and pocket cutlery, 14; razors, 12; scissors, 14; stove-grates and fenders, 5; saws, 11; sithes, [sites] 9; steel converters, 7 surgical instruments, 2; skates, 3; castings, 5 ORDNANCE WastTE.-The [Waste.-The] stables at Colesberg, [Colleges] belonging to the Cape Mounted Rifies, [Rifles] and built by the Ordnance at an expense of 1,000, have been sold for 40. It is much to be regretted that so large a building of this kind, much larger than any other in Colesberg, [Colleges] should be sacrificed in in this manner when it might have been usefully appropriated as a schoolhouse or fever Service Gazette. THe [The] New Roman Hrerarcuy.-The [Hierarchy.-The] Bishop of London has replied to the address of the clergy. He characterizes the papal procedure as a schismatical [schismatics] act, without prece- [price- precedent] dent, trusts that the government will not submit to it. He observes this encroachment upon the Crown and Church of England is so skilfully centrived [contrived] that the letter of the law will, probably, be unoffended, [unfounded] but that the spirit of the law will, without doubt, be violated. In reference to the measures to be adopted, his lordship re- [recommends] commends a course of action and charitable, but firm and uncompromisin [uncompromising] He urges the clergy to preach upon the subject and also recommends petitioning parliament on the matter. The Maidstone Journal states that Mr. Hope, the mem- [men- member] ber [be] for that borough, does not intend again to offer himse [himself] elf, and a strong desire has been expressed among the ecading [acting] electors that the seat, when vacant, should be offered to John Minet [Mine] Fector [Rector] Laurie, Esq., who formerly represented Maidstone, and who has taken the name of Laurie on suc- [such- succeeding] ceeding [feeding] to the estates of his uncle. The Morning Post afew [few] days since gave currency to a rumour to the effect that Sir Edward Bulwer [Buller] Lytton, [Letting] the novelist, had lost the use of both his ears. Sir Edward, in a letter to the editor, denies the rumour, and adds, that if he is, as had been asserted, in a desponding responding] way (which he is not aware of) 'it must be rather owing to the f my hearing than to any loss of that faculty, since it Soge [Sole] not seein [seen] to me that the average quality of talk (and the rumour in question is perhaps a fair specimen of it) pos- [post- possesses] sesses [senses] much that is calculated to cheer the animal spirits, or contribute to the intellectual enjoyment.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ENGLAND AND FraNcE.-There [France.-There] is this difference between the two countries-and it requires a long experience to decide which is the worse of the two to live in-that whereas the peovle [people] in France are always breaking out, the people in England scem [seem] to be always breaking in. Waat [Wait] a Lucky Escape -It is very lucky that Momus's [Modus's] proposed plan, that everybody should have a window in his breast, so that the world might be able to see what was passing inside, was never carried out, or else there would not be a native of this country- [countryman] man, woman, or child-but who, at the present day, would have to pay for the window-tax StaRvaTion [Station] OF MIND anD [and] Bopy [Boy] in IrnE1AND.-The [Ireland.-The] Roman Catholic clergy of Ireland, we are told, are going to establish a university of their own. If they can command funds sufficient for the purpose, where was their money during the Irish famine If they cannot, it is highly improbable that their flocks will be much better taught than fed. THE Greatest Butt Ever Known.-The Bull by which the Pope has appointed Dr. Wiseman Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster. Perhaps the individual thus singled out for Papal favour will furnish an ex- [example] ample of the greatest misnomer ever known, if he should proceed to act upon the instructions the see of Rome may have given him.

And then Mr. Punch- [Punch who] who had received the honour of an invitation-begged to be allowed to give, in his own way,- The Oblivion of Nelson's Daughter. Drunk, with blushes. BRITIsH [British] AND AMERICAN ELEctRic [Electric] are being made of the tardiness of the electric tele- [tee- telegraph] graph, as if its flash of electricity were sometimes a flash in the pan. The superiority of the American mode of transmitting messages by this wonderful in- [invention] vention [mention] is notorious; and if we did not know that it was owing to their companies being more active, as well as liberal, than our own, we should ascribe it to the electric fluid which they employ, being greased lightning. PREVENTION BETTER THAN THE Best CurE.-Nothing [Cure.-Nothing] can exceed the activity of the police after a great crime or robbery has been committed. They will run their legs off in pursuit of the stolen horse, as soon as they have been informed it has been stolen; but to keep a watch upon the stable-door, or to try whether it is pro- [properly] perly [reply] locked, is a thing that never enters the area of their imaginations. The recent burglary in the Strand furnishes us with another proof of this tremendous activity that always comes too late. The accounts agree unanimously in saying that the police are im [in] active pursuit of the delinquents. Now itstrikesus [districts] strongly, 'that if the police were only to bestow one half the zeal in preventing a robbery, which they generally display in finding it out, many thousand pounds, and probably a few lives, would be saved in the course of every year ; and that, also, there would not be so many enquiries and cries of wonderment heard, after reading every fresh case of burglary, as to where could the police have been ---- . JENNY LIND, HER SHOWMAN, AND THE AMERICAN PRESS. The following is from the New York Herald, which disclaims, on the part of the American press, any parti- [part- participation] cipation [constipation] in the profits of Barnum's speculation, and enters into the subjoined explanations of that person's mode of management - But how does Barnum turn the press to his ac- [account] count asks the writer. Just as follows -Being a shrewd Yankee, and one of the press gang himself, he knows the ropes, and having his experience during his exhibition of Dr. Edson, 'the Living Skele- [Scale- Skeleton] ton;' Joice [Voice] Heth, [Heath] pretended to be the nurse of Wash- [Washington] ington; [Kington] General Santa Anna's leg General Tom Thumb; and the Woolly Horse, he sends paid agents about in all directions to get up an excitement. The papers re- [report] port the excitement as news; the report produces a new excitement among the readers, more or less, in pro- [proportion] portion to the extent of the circulation-other papers copy the report, and thus multiply it over the land. Barnum does not even so much as thank them for their pains. For months before Jenny Lind's arrival, he kept up a constant excitement by sending communica- [communicate- communications] tions [tins] to the newspapers about her, all of which were in- [inserted] serted [seated] without costing him a dollar. While she is on board the Atlantic an excitement is got up by Barnum's agents-a concert is given, and a report is published of it on her arrival. Then, preparations of every kind are made to give her a reception. The reception, with the attendant excitement, is duly published by the papers at considerable expense and much labour to the re- [reporters] porters, who get no thanks for their trouble. In the next place, it is given out that the furniture of Jenny Lind's apartments in the hotels cost a mint of money- [money in] in Boston, so much as 13,000 dollars. The furniture is certainly magnificent, and the manufacturer is praised to the skies. This is reported, and stimulates the ex- [excitement] citement. [cement] But what is the fact Some of this furni- [furnish- furniture] ture [true] turns out to be actuallysecond-hand, [actually second-hand] while the new is lent by the furniture store for the occasion, the pro- [proprietor] prietor [proprietor] considering himself well paid by the puffs he re- [receives] ceives [receives] from the press. When Jenny Lind removes from the hotel the furniture is returned, or perhaps a portion of it is wanted for the establishment. But this is not all; Barnum by his agreement is to pay the hotel ex- [expenses] penses [senses] of Jenny Lind and suite. The unsophisticated reader will say that this must cost an enormousamount, [enormous amount] considering the magnificent furniture of the apart- [apartments] ments, [rents] private board, and gold service. He will perhaps be astonished when we tell him that, instead of costing Barnum anything, he makes money by the transac- [transact- transaction] tion. [ion] The hotels do not charge him a cent, and it is even said that he has been well paid for bringing the Nightingale to these establishments. Now, the report published in the papers of the great expense he incurs for hotels brings grist to his mill, for it impresses the reader with an idea that such an expenditure necessarily requires very high prices to sustain it; and the hotels, on the other hand, participate in the profits of the excitement by the eclat arising from their supposed spirit in making such preparations for Jenny Lind, and by the shoals of fish that consequently fall into their net. Thus all parties are benefitted [benefit] by the press, except the press itself. All this time Jenny . Lind is unconscious of the use that is made of her name to swell the amount of the receipts. Why, the receipts themselves are ted in order to produce an effect for the next concert. For example, the Swede, in the benevolence of her heart, devoted the entire of her share of the profits of the first concert in New York to the purposes of charity, and did not wish to have it published. Barnum, think- [thinking] ing it would be a pity to hide the virtues of the angel under a bushel, proclaimed the fact at the close of the concert. He announced that 10,000 dollars were her share, and designated the different charities to which that sum had been appropriated. But it turned out that the chickens were counted before they were hatched, and that instead of 10,000 dollars, there were only 7,000 dollars forthcoming. How were the other 3,000 dollars to be made up Jenny Lind had to put her hand in her pocket and to pay what she never received, This charity, of course, was only lending to the Lord, as the inscription on the lock of one of her apartments in the Revere House testifies, for whatever is thus given is amply repaid, and Barnum reaps a splendid harvest though the seed which produces it costs him nothing. Then look at the excitement got up by selling the first choice seat at auction. Before the eventful da; comes Barnum's agents are busy at work, and a furore is raised; any money will be given for a seat that is sometimes about the worst in the house, as at Castle- [Castle garden] garden, and is never better than one that costs five dollars. The rivalry of pride or an eye to business pushes it up to 265 dollars, 625 dollars, or, lastly, as in Providence, to 650 dollars. This has its effect, not only upon the other tickets at the concert and the following concerts in the same place, but on the first ticket and all the tickets at the concerts in the next city; so that we would not be surprised if the price of the first seat would reach 1,000 dollars at the first con- [concert] cert in New Orleans. All these results flow from the liberality of the press, which has made one fortune for Barnum and is now fast making another for him by thanklessly and gratuitously occupying its space with accounts of the sayings and doings of the Swedish Nightingale. It is true that the glorious woman is worthy of all the honour, and glory, and renown the press can give her, but it is well the public should understand that Mr. Barnum is the only gainer in the business. Malle. [Mall] Lind, of course, shares half the receipts; but then she devotes them to the noble work of education in her native land and for this, independent of her wonderful musical genius, she has the sympathy of the press, and of two worlds here below, to say nothing of the world to come. - eel An important firm in Manchester-Messrs. H. Banner- [Bannerman] man and Sons, have resolved as an experiment, 'the coming winter, to abolish the dinner hour in the middle of the day, and to close their warehouse at five p.m. Should the experiment succeed, other firms in the same town have intimated their willingness to adopt the same plan, THE GRAND CIVIC BANQUET AT YORK. ENTERTAINMENT OF PRINCE ALBERT AND THE LORD MAYOR OF LONDON BY THE PROVINCIAL MAYORS AND OTHER CORPORATE OFFICERS OF THE UNITED KINGDOM. This great civic feast and fraternisation of the leading men connected with the civil government of the United Kingdom took place at York yesterday evening week, and will be long remembered as the most novel as well as the most magnificent provincial banquet which has taken place for a long series of years. It will be remembered that in the month of March last, his Royal Highness Prince Albert honoured the Lord Mayor of London with his company at dinner at the .2usion-house, .Union-house] to meet a very large and distin- [distinct- distinguished] guished [gushed] party Of the friends and promoters of the Great Industrial Exhibition of 1851, including the chief officers of state, the leading members of both houses of parliament, ihe [the] royal commissioners for the furtherance of the exhibition, the principal members of the corpora- [corporation] tion [ion] of London, the masters or ihe [the] great city companies, several large contributors to the exhipiticn [exhibition] fund, and other gentlemen of eminence; and what formed a ais tinctive [inactive] peculiarity of the occasion was this, that nearly all the mayors and other chief municipal officers of the corporate towns of the United Kingdom were there assembled together. This latter event led to a series of meetings of the provincial mayors and constables, which resulted in a resolve to return the compliment by the provinces in the shape of a banquet given by the provincial autho- [author- authorities] rities [cities] to Prince Albert and the Lord Mayor of London. York was fixed upon as the city most eligible, and a ma- [managing] naging [raging] committee chosen to make the necessary arrange- [arrangements] ments, [rents] consisting of the Lord Mayor of York, and the Mayors of Leeds, Bradford, Manchester, Wakefield, Halifax, and Hull. To M. Soyer, [Boyer] the celebrated chef de cuisine, recently of the Reform Club, was entrusted the providing of the dinner, which for 250 guests, was calculated to cost 600, exclusive of wines. Besides Prince Albert and the Lord Mayor of London, the guests included the Archbishop of York, Earl Fitz- [Fitzwilliam] william, [William] Lord John Russell, Lord Beaumont, the Chan- [Chancellor] cellor [Mellor] of the Exchequer, the Marquis of Abercorn, the Marquis of Clanricarde, the Earl of Carlisle, the Earl Granville, Lord Feversham, [feverish] the High Sheriff of York- [Yorkshire] shire, the Right Hon. Sir G. Grey, Bart. and Sir John B. Johnstone, Bart., Mr. Cobden, M.P., Mr. Beckett Denison, MP. &c. Amongst the mayors and other public officersand [officer sand] friends (specially invited) were William Willans, Esq. (chief constable of Huddersfleld), [Huddersfield] Joseph Brook, Esq. i of the Huddersfield Improvement Commissioners), Lient. [Lent] Colonel Pollard, the Mayors of Bradford, Halifax, Leeds, Manchester, Salford, Wakefield, Sheffield, and Doncaster, George Goodman, Esq. of Leeds, J. Stansfeld, Esq, of Halifax, F. Crossley, Esq. of Halifax, &c. &c. His Royal Highness Prince Albert arrived at the York station from London shortly before four o'clock on Friday, and was received by the Lord Mayor of York, who was accompanied by the Lord Provost of Edin- [Edwin- Edinburgh] burgh, and the Mayors of Manchester and three or four other principal towns. His Royal Highness, who was loudly cheered by the crowds assembled, proceeded through the city to the Mansion House. The municipal authorities invited to meet the Prince began to arrive at- [Arthur] the Mansion House at a quarter before six o'clock. The Lord Mayor of London came, attended by his suite, at six o'clock. His lordship wore his full official costume, with the gold chain of office, and was preceded by the sword and mace bearer. The mayors generally also wore their full-dress costumes. Lord John Russell, the Marquis of Clanricarde, the Earl of Carlisle, and several other distinguished guests, arrived at the Mansion House about this time. At a quarter past six o'clock the Prince entered the reception room, where the company had assembled. The Lady Mayoress of York, accom- [com- accompanied] panied [pained] by her sister, Mrs. Sladen (of Kersal [Reversal] Bank, Man- [Manchester] chester), had the honour of being presented to his Royal Highness. Several other presentations from among the municipal officers of the leading towns in the kingdom were made before the Prince left the room. At a few minutes past seven o'clock the general com- [company] pany [any] descended from the Mansion House to the Guild- [Guildhall] hall, and took the places appointed for them at the banqueting tables. The entry of the Prince and the other guests having seats at the cross table was very shortly afterwards announced by a flourish of trumpets The moment the Prince set his foot in the hall, his Royal Highness was greeted with a hearty cheer of welcome, which was continued for several minutes. The Prince, who now wore his field marshal's uniform, was conducted to his seat by the Lord Mayor of York. His Royal Highness sat upon the right hand of his lord- [lordship] ship. The Lord Mayor of London sat upon the left of the Lord Mayor of York. Grace having been said by the Rev. Canon Trevor, the dinner was proceeded with. During the banquet, the band of the Queen's Bays, stationed in the gallery, performed a variety of favourite music. The loving cup having been passed round and the dessert placed upon the table, grace was sung by a choir of male and female vocalists. The Lord Mayor of York, at half-past nine, proposed the Queen's health, which was drunk with three times three. The Lord Mayor then, in an appropriate speech, proposed Prince Albert, and thanks for his attendance, which was drunk with three times three. Prince ALBERT rose, and was received with immense cheers. He said My Lord Mayor, I am very sensible of your kindness in proposing my health, and I beg you, gentlemen, to believe that I feel very deeply your demonstrations of good will and cordiality towards myself. I assure you that I fully reciprocate these sentiments, and that it has given me sincere pleasure to meet you, the representatives of the all-important towns of the kingdom, again assembled at a festive board, in token of the unity and harmony of feeling which pre- [prevails] vails [vail] amongst those whom you represent, on which I am persuaded the happiness and well-being of the country so materially depends. (Cheers.) It was an idea-honourable at once to the liberality and discern- [discernment] ment [men] of the Lord Mayor of London to invite you to assemble under his hospitable roof, before you started in the important undertaking upon which you were going to enter, and when, according to ancient custom, the loving cup went round, it wasa [was] pledge you gave each other, that, whatever the rivalries of your different localities might be, you would, in the approaching con- [contest] test, all act and appear as one, representing your coun- [con- country] try at the gathering of the products of the nations of the earth. (Loud cheers.) I see by your anxiety to return, before your terms of office shall have expired, the compliment which London has paid you, that you personally appreciate to its full extent the intention of its chief magistrate-(cheers)-and you could not have selected a better place for your meeting than this vene- [even- venerable] rable [able] city, which is so much connected with the recol- [recoil- recollections] lections [elections] and the history of the empire, and is now pro- [prominent] minent [eminent] as the centre of a district in which a high state of agriculture is blended with the most extensive pro- [production] duction [Auction] of manufactures. (Immense cheering.) But i see likewise, in youranxiety [your anxiety] to meet us her Majesty's com- [commissioners] missioners, again, a proof of your earnest and continued zeal in the cause of the approaching exhibition. It would not be by the impetus of a momentary enthu- [tenth- enthusiasm] siasm, [Siam] but-only by a steady perseverance and sustained efforts that you could hope to carry out your great undertaking, and ensure for yourselves and the nation an honourable position in the comparison which you have invited. If to cheer you on in your labours, by no means terminated, you should require an assurance that the spirit of activity and perseverance is abroad in the country, I can give you that assurance on the ground of the information which reaches us from all quarters- [quarters loud] (loud and prolonged cheering)-and I can add to it our personal conviction, that the works in preparation will be such as to dispel any apprehension from the position which British industry will maintain. From abroad, also, all accounts which we receive lead us to expect that the works to be sent will be numerous and of a superior character. Although we perceive in some countries an apprehension that the advantages to be derived from the exhibition will be mainly reaped by England, and a con- [consequent] sequent distrust in the effects of our scheme upon their own interests, we must at the same time freely and grate- [gratefully] fully acknowledge, that our invitation has been received by all nations with whom communication was possible, in that spirit of liberality and friendship in which it was tendered, and that they are making great exertions, and incurring great expenses, in order to meet our plans. (Hear, hear.) Of our own doings at the Commission, I should have preferred to remain silent, but I cannot let Y this opportunity pass without telling you, how much benefit we have derived, in our difficult labours, from your uninterrupted confidence in the intentions, atleast, [at least] which guided our decisions; and that there has been no difference of opinion on any subject between us and the local committees, which has not, upon personal consul- [consultation] tation, [station] and after open explanation and discussion, vanished and given way to agreement and identity of purpose. There is but one alloy to my feelings of satis- [sates- satisfaction] faction and pleasure in seeing you here assembled again ; and that is the painful remembrance that one is missing from amongst us-(loud cries of hear, hear )-who felt 80 warm an interest in our scheme, and took so active a part in promoting its success; the last act of whose public life was attending at the Royal Commis- [Comms- Commission] sion-the [the] admiration for whose talents and character, and the gratitude for whose devotion to the Queen, and private friendship towards myself, I feel a consolation in having this public opportunity to express. (Hear, hear.) Only at our last meeting we were still admiring his eloquence, and the earnestnesss [earnestness] with which he ap- [appealed] pealed to you to uphold by your exertions and personal sacrifices what was to him the highest object, the honour of his country he met you the following day, together with other commissioners, to confer with you upon the details of our undertaking, and you must have been struck, as every body has been who has had the bene- [been- benefit] fit of his advice upon practical points;-you must have been struck with the attention, care, and sagecity,; [sagacity] with which Ma sreated [treated] the minutest details, proving that, great mind nothing is little, from the knowledge that, in the moral and intellectual as in the physical world, the smallest point is onl; [on] a link in that chain, and holds its appointed place in that great whole which is governed by the vine wisdom. (Cheers.) The constitution of Sir . Robert Peel's mind was peculiarly that of a statesman, and of ar English statesman. (Loud cheers.) He was liberal from feeling, but upon principle. (Renewed cheering.) Whilst his impulse drove him to foster progress, his sagacious mind and great experience showed him how easily the whole machinery of a state, and of society, is deranged-(hear, hear)-and how im- [in- important] portant, [important] but how difficult also, it is to direct its further development in accordance with its fundamental prin- [pain- principles] ciples, [piles] like organic growth in nature. (Hear, hear.) It was peculiar to him that in great things as in small, all the difficulties and objections occurred to him first. (Hear, hear.) He would anxiously consider them, pause, and warn against rash resolutions, but having convinced himself, after long and careful investigation, that a step was not only right to be taken, but of the necessity and duty to take it. (Hear, hear.) All his caution and apparent timidity changed into courage and power of action, and at the same time readiness to make any personal sacrifice which its execution might demand. Gentlemen, if he has had so great an influence over this country it was from the nation recognising in his quali- [quality- qualities] ties the true type of the English character, which is essentially practical. Warmly attached to his institu- [institute- institutions] tions [tins] and revering the bequest left to him by the industry, wisdom, and piety of his forefathers, the Englishman atiaches [attaches] little value to any theoretical scheme. It will attract his attention only after having been for some time placed before him; it must have been thoroughly investigated and discussed before he will entertain it. Should it be an empty theory it will fall to the ground during this time of probation; should it survive this trial, it will be on account of the practical qualities con- [contained] tained [gained] in it; but its adoption in the end will entirely depend upon its harmony with the national feeling, the historic development of the country, and the peculiar nature of her institutions. (Loud cheers.) It is owing to these national qualities that this favoured land, whilst constantly progressing, has still preserved the integrity of her constitution from the earliest times, and has been protected from wild schemes, whose chief charm lies in their novelty; whilst around us we have seen, unfortunately, whole nations distracted, and the very fabric of society endangered from the levity with which the result of the experience of generations, the growth of ages has been thrown away to give place to temporarily favourite ideas. (Cheers.) Taking this view of the character of our country, I was pleased when I saw the plan of the Exhibition of 1851 undergo its ordeal of doubt, discussion, and even opposition ; and I hope that I may now gather from the energy and earnestness with which its execution is pursued, that the nation is convinced that it accords with its interests and the position which England has taken in the world. (Cheers,) Gentlemen, I thank you for the honour you have done me, and I drink all your good healths. [health] 'His royal highness resumed his seat amidst general and protracted cheering. The Lord Mayor next gave The health of his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales and the other members of the Royal Family. -The toast was drunk with three times three good cheers-The Lord Mayor of York gave The health of the Archbishop of York and the clergy of the diocese. -The toast having been very warmly responded to the Archbishop of York returned thanks.-The Lord Mayor of York next gave The army and navy of Great Britain. -This toast was very cordially received, and Colonel Campbell, of the Queen's Bays, returned thanks-The Chairman then proposed The Lord Mayor of London. -The toast was drunk with loud and continued cheering-The Lord Mayor of London, who was received with loud cheers, returned thanks.-The Chairman then proposed The health of Lord John Ruasell [Russell] and her Majesty's ministers. -Lord John Russell, who was received with loud cheers, returned thanks in a speech that wes [West] repeatedly cheered.-Earl Fitzwilliam proposed The health of the Royal Commissioners for the Exhibition, coupling with the toast the name of Earl Granville, who returned thanks.-The Chairman then severally gave The House of Lords, and The House of Commons, for which the Marquis of Clanricarde and Mr. Beckett Denison, M.P., returned thanks.-The Earl of Carlisle proposed The health of the Lord Mayor of York, the Lord Provost of Edinburgh, and the mayors present. -The Lord Mayor of York, the Lord Provost of Edinburgh, and the Mayors of Bradford and Cork acknowledged the toast. The toasts of The Lord Lieutenant of the Three Ridings, The Working Classes, The County Magi- [Magistracy] stracy, [stray, The Magistrates of the Borough, and The Lady Mayoress, followed, and it was midnight when the prince left the table. There was a grand concert and a ball in the Great Assembly Room, and York was brilliantly illuminated. --- - Lord Londesborough has taken possession of the splendid mansion and estate at Grimston Park, near Tadcaster, Yorkshire, which he lately purchased from Lord Howden, her Majesty's minister at the court of Spain. If anything were wanting to demonstrate the superior excellency of John Cassell's Coffee, it is found in the fact of its daily-increasing consumption. This, to all persons engaged in the trade, appears most remarkable, for the following reasons -No article has had to contend with greater competition. The success which attended John Cassell's Coffee brought at once a host of imitators into the field it seemed as if every dealer must be making up and selling Packet Coffee. But, notwithstanding the various kinds thus brought before the public, John Cassell's continued to increase in popular favour. And ought this to excite any rise by no means the fact is, that John Cassell's Coffee sets all competition at defiance, for strength, mellowness and richness of flavour. Let the public, however, be aware, that John Cassell's Coffee is sold only by his agents, and that every packet or canister has his signature, without which none can be genuine, and to imitate which is felony. Pris, [Paris] AN EXcELLENT [Excellent] REMEDY FOR Coucus, [Mucous] CoLDs, [Colds] PULMONARY COMPLAINTS, AND OTHER DISEASES OF THE CHEST.-Mr. J. C. Rheinhardt, [Reinhardt] chemist, of Hull, states that Mr. Stringer, formerly of the Hull Glass Works, was pronounced to be tar gone in consumption, and medical men had given him up as incurable. On seeing Holloway's Pills advertised, he thought he would give them a trial, and after taking a few boxes his cough abated, his flesh became firm, his appetite improved, and now his health is completely restored. This admirable medicine is a certain remedy for the most obstinate cases of asthma, old coughs, colds, and all diseases of the chest and lungs.

So A FRENCH WaR [War] FLEETIN [FLEET] AN ENGLISH Port.-A French Fleet, anchored in Brisham [Brigham] Roads, Torbay, on Saturday afternoon, consisting of the Freedland, [Fraudulent] Valma [Alma] Hercules, Jammappes, [Campos] Henry IV. Jena, tJupiter, [fruiterer] and two steam corvettes, under the command of Admiral Deschenes, [Designers] and a Vice-admiral. The fleet were from Cherbourg, and bound to Brest, but were compelled to put into an English port through stress of weather. The Times correspondent in- [informs] forms us that the ships all looked in good order and clean, and that they handled their canvass tolerably quick on coming to anchor. On Tuesday a steamer was d to Dartmouth, and on its return in the the fleet got under weigh, standing to the westward under single reef topsails, top-gallant sails, jib, spanker, &c., and at five p.m. were out of sight. The whole of the fleet, says the correspondent of the Times, got under weigh in a most slovenly manner, and not at all like ships-of-war, much less like ships-of-the-line. On Dit.-We [It.-We] are informed that Dr. Bunting and his y have applied to a legal gentlemen who travels the orthern [other] Circuit, respecting the practicability of remodel- [remodelling] ling the laws of Methodists, and forming a new code de novo [Nov] that should be final and binding and, without ambi- [ami- ambiguity] guity, [guilty] be concise, and convenient for reference or ap and all so as not to invalidate or jeopardise the rights of the conference. The learned, gentleman we un- [understand] derstand, [understand] advises them that it cannot be done without an Act of Parliament We understand, further, that the heads of the houses have had Special meetings in Man- [Manchester] chester respecting the present unexpected state of Wesleyan Times. Dr. Ullathorne [Alone] was formally enthroned as Birmingham, at St. Chad's Sunday last. THE Rev. CANON TREVOR AND THE CHURCH BURGESSES. OF SHEFFIELD.-Some months since, the Rev. Canon Tre- [Te- Trevor] vor [or] was elected toa [to] chaplaincy in the parish church of Sheffield but his election being distasteful to the viear, [vicar] Dr. Sutton, that reverend divine refused the co-o i of the newly-elected chaplain, and would not permit him to take part in the duties of the parish church. Under these circumstances, it was pro by Mr. Younge, and other ofthe [of the] church burgesses, to have a new district church at Broomhall, an important and influential portion of the parish of Sheffield and the archbishop consented to license Canon Trevor to it on certain conditions-one being that, on the consecration of the new church, Canon Trevor should make his election whether he would retain the chaplainey [chaplain] of the parish church, or the incumbancy [incumbent] of the posed new church. Mr. and his friends had undertaken, to provide a temporary church, capable of accommodating 706. persons, and to place in the hands of the archbishop the sum of 150, as a provision for three years' stipend it being calculated that that period would elapse before the permanent church would ready for consecration, and consequently before the ecclesiastical commissioners could expected to make a provision for the incumbent of the new ct. Mr. Trevor was to have received per annum, in addition to his of 400 as chaplain, until the period arrived when the church was consecrated, and then he was to make his election which he would retain. Various difficulties were, however raised the reverend canon to this ent, [end] the pri [pro] a by that the Broomhall district, without the pelbeing [peeling] not compensate him for leaving York ite [it] ee including anticipated pew rents, not 7 gee of which a curate must be paid. Ultimately i negotiations have terminated, and that the is no longer offered to him, and that burgesses to whom he owes his election fre [re] Placed in hostility to him.
