[CONFECTIONER] -Samue [Same] Clegg, a young n about 18 or 19 years of age, was charged by Mr. William Makin, general dealer in confectiona' [confections] on Saturday rast, [rest] before J. Brook and G. Armitage, rs., at the 'jdhall, [Goodall] with having stolen 30lbs. [lbs] of confectionary. [confectioner] In Gantt of August last the prisoner was engaged by the rosecutor [prosecutor] at a weekly wage of 4s. to hawk confectionary. [confectioner] fer being on duty for a few days, Clegg was entrusted with a box containing 30lbs. [lbs] of gingerbread, brandy snaps, gnd [and] similar articles, after disposing of a great quantity of which be absconded. Information was given to the police of the offence, but on enquiry it was found that Clegg had jet thetown. [the town] He was not heard of until a few days ago, qhen [when] he waited upon Makin, and offered to make the matter Up by working it out. Makin refused, and giving information of his re-appearance at the police office, the risoner [prisoner] Was taken into custody on Monday morning, the 1st inst. by Inspector Townend. Clegg was committed to Wakefield to take his trial for the offence. LertinG [Leading] OFF FIRE-ARMS IN THE PuBLic [Public] STREETS.- [STREETS] Thomas Beaumont, a young lad, was charged by Mr. Superintendent Thomas with letting off certain fire-arms of very dangerous character in New-street, on Monday afternnon, [afternoon] the 21st inst. The case was not pressed, and the jad [had] was discharged with a reprimand. e istrates [magistrates] expressed their determination to put a stop to such dan- [dangerous] erous [rouse] amusements. AssauLT.-On [Assault.-On] Saturday last, before Joseph Brook and George Armitage, Esqrs., [Esquires] at the Guildhall, a charge of gssault [assault] was preferred by David Berry against James East- [Eastwood] wood. Mr. J. 1. Freeman defended. From the evidence it appeared that the parties had been drinking together at the George and Dragon on the night of the 15th, [the] when, as js usual, a quarrel ensued and blows were struck by both. The case was discharged. Nox-ParMenT [Not-Payment] OF WaGes.-At [Wales.-At] the Guildhall, on Satur- [Star- Saturday] day last, Thomas Lobley appeared as plaintiff against Mr. Aaron Wilkinson, bobbin turner, Cliff Factory, for non- [nonpayment] payment of wages to the amount of 411s. s] 1d. for bobbin tuming. [turing] The monies claimed were for wages during the summer, at the rate of lls. [ll] per week, with board and odging. [lodging] Some unpleasantness having arisen, the plaintiff left the defendant's employ, and since that period no settle- [settlement] ment [men] could be obtained. Mr. Wilkinson, in defence, pleaded damaged work to more than the amount claimed, Mr. Brook said he could not understand this allowing a rman [man] to work on uncomplained [unexplained] of, and then as soon as ever he left his employment refusing to pay his wages, on the plea of damaged work. Such deduction the bench con- [considered] sidered [resided] should be made at the time when the alleged dama- [drama- damages] ges [ge] were committed, and he, as a magistrate, never would consent to encourage this system of pleading damages, only at the time when a workman left hisemploy. [his employ] The claim was ordered to be paid. DEPREDATIONS BY VAGRANTS.-Three lazy idle-looking young fellows were placed in the dock at the Guildhall, on Saturday, charged with destroying a boiler and committing other damage at the Vagrant Office on the previous day. They were committed to Wakefield for fourteen days. RoBBERY.-On [Robbery.-On] Monday night, aburglary [burglary] was committed on the premises of Mr. Aston, cloth finisher, Folly-hall. An entrance had been obtained through a window on the south-west side of the building, after which the thieves had ransacked the premises, and ultimately decam [decay] with two pieces of black doeskin cloth, value about 11 or 12. The cloth did net belong to Mr. Aston, but had been placed with him to finish, which operation had been com- [completed] pleted, [plated] and the pieces were ready made up for Tuesday's market. The thieves appear to have left the premises by one of the doors after breaking off the locks. Information was given to Mr. Superintendent Heaton, but beyond the discovery of the rolling boards in an adjacent pond, no trace has been obtained of the delinquents. SILKSTONE VERSUS BARNSLEY CoaL.-There [Coal.-There] has long been a prevailing opinion that the Silkstone is much superior tothe [tithe] Barnsley bed of coal, for domestic purposes. Ex- [Experiments] periments, [experiments] however, recently made by Mr. J. C. Sutcliffe, of which a full account is to be found in our advertising columns to-day, prove that quite the contrary is the case. --- HUDDERSFIELD FEMALE EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTE. On Monday evening last, the Rev. Joan GLENDENNING gave an address to the pupils and friends of the Institute, in the lecture-room of the Philosophical Society, which was kindly granted by the committee for the occasion. The object of the rev. gentleman's remarks was to impress upon the minds of the young people whom he ad some important practical lessons drawn from the personal character, the domestic life, and public labours of the great philanthropist, John Howard. His history (too well known to require notice in this report) was briefly sketched. In early life, John, it was said, was rather a dull boy, and never at any time a great scholar, yet by perseverance and determination of character, he did great things, and be- [became] came a great benefactor to his race. Many whom the rev. gentleman addressed might be very backward in their edu- [ed- education] cation, and it might be, dull at learning too, yet were they urged not to be discouraged. It was pleasing to find so many availing themselves of the opportunities of improve- [improvement] meut [met] afforded by this Institute, and showed that they valued education. Let them by perseverance and determi- [determine- determination] nation reap its full advantages, and they too, though not in the same way, or to the same extent as Howard- [Howard] might be benefactors of theirrace. [their race] The great philanthropist again, was a man of delicate constitution, and from the simplicity of his living, they might gather some instruction. Most delicate people thought to make amends for constitu- [constitution- constitutional] tional [national] weakness, by what is called good living. But Howard on the contrary, neither ate flesh nor drank wine. Not that he wished to recommend vegetarianism to their practice, though even that was not without claims upon their attention. The cases of Mr. Brotherton and Colonel Thompson were referred to. The lesson he wished to convey was one of temperance and simplicity of living. Howard lived to a good old age, and though of an originally delicate constitution, underwent more toil, endured more privations than falls to the lot of most. He rose and retired early, and freely used cold water, and these they would find to be the great source of health, In this connexion, the reverend gentleman spoke of recreation as a great want of our nature, and hecessary [necessary] to health, and recommended such aswere [as were] simple, and tended at once to strengthen the body and elevate the mind. A walk in the fields he thought preferable to attend- [attendance] ance [once] in crowded rooms, where many sought amusements, either healthful in pursuit nor always innocent in cha- [character] racter. [Carter] The providing innocent and healthful recreations for the working classes was spoken of approvingly. But to the audience he addressed it was said the time would come when their purest and most innocent pleasures would be found in the domestic circle,-in their home duties,- [duties] Whether as daughters, sisters, wives, or mothers From the philanthropist's domestic life were drawn many useful Suggestions for the guidance ef the young people addressed, -in their future home relations of life, especially as wives. Between Howard and his wife (his second) was the fullest sympathy. She was a true helpmate in all his purposes and plans,-and the result was the utmost domestic ony [on] and happiness. Both were alike benevolent and self- [selfSacrificing] Sacrificing. Howard, of the middle class in life and of Moderate income, ever considered himself only God's steward, as regarded his property and the surplus of his income, after satisfying the simple wants of his household, Was devoted to benevolent purposes; not indiscriminately pensed, [pended] but expended in the permanent improvement of the humbler classes around him. The cottagers on his 8mall [small] patrimonial estate he found living in dirty, miserable hovels. His surplus income was devoted to building better and more commodious dwellings tor these poor people,-so Recessary [Necessary] to their physical and moral elevation. These, directed from time to time, were given to the most of his tenants, at the same rent as was paid or their former filthy huts. The importance to the humbler classes of attention to their dwellings-order, héatness, [heartiness] cleanliness, was enfo [info] and a lesson indi- [India- indirectly] rectly [directly] read to the landlord class-from this example of the 'philanthropist [philanthropist] that, like him, they might make, hot their own self- [advertisement] dizement, [cement] but the improvement and elevation of their tenantry, their great purpose and, him, gather around them a happy and a grateful tetantry. [tenantry] The doctrine, it was hoped, was gaining ground, That property has its duties as well as privileges. In this connexion there was related an 'nteresting [interest] anecdote, ' d full of instruction. The philanthropist on one occasion ound [fund] himself at the end of the year in possession of a small Sum of money, This he had carefully saved, with the in- [insertion] 'eution [edition] of treating Mrs. Howard to a trip to London; it as just sufficient, his benevolent lady found, to build an additional cottage for a deserving family and, with her 'sual [usual] self-denial, she begged it might be so applied, and it Hs S0 -an example of self-sacrifice worthy of all imitation, he death of his devoted wife, with whom he had lived so Ppily, [Ply] was a great shock to the philanthropist but he an not under his affliction. It was perhaps the event sel [se] ch, more than any other, deepened his characteristic be and widened its sphere from a mere private into a world-wide philanthropy. The pain and Tow occasioned to the father by the ingratitude and nduct [duct] of his only son, to whom Howard, after Mrs. death, gave himself up with usual self-devotion, whoa the occasion of inculcating upon the pupils a lesson of filial duty, obedience, and affection. noti [not] philanthropist's public labours were but slightly Bedi His conduct, on being anpeinted [appointed] High Sheriff of him ord, was chiefly dwelt upon.

His energy and determination of character enabled him to overcome all o 3, and to effect, through the agency of the Proper authorities, vast improvements, not yet exhausted, in the system of prison discipline, in various countries. In application, the reverend gentleman said that although his young hearers might not be able to labour in the same field, or to a like extent with the great philanthropist, yet by carrying his spirit, his benevolence, is energy, his perseverance, his truthful simplicity into every scene of life, they might do an equally important work, though less noticed and less known. And even in his peculiar sphere, they were not excluded from partici- [parties- participating] pating [eating] in his lessons. The efforts of the Yarmouth semp- [Sep- sempstress] stress were given in illustration of how much may be done even by hard wrought females of the humbler classes. Sarah Martin visited first the prison of her native place and then the workhouse- to the inmates-formed classes for various kinds of instruction-and commenced that system of education since adopted and improved on in gaols [goals] and union houses, aiming at the elevation of our destitute and criminal population. Such the good work commenced by Sarah Martin, at Great Yarmouth, amid their coldness and contempt, but in the end receiving the thanks of the people and the authorities, herself crowned with their respect and admiration The address was lis- [is- listened] tened [tend] to with great attention, and could not fail of being great source not A vote of thanks having been carried by acclamation The Reverend Gentleman in acknowledging the compli- [comply- compliment] ment, [men] said he felt it was even more than he deserved - (Cries of 'No, no, )-and repeated his expressions of deep interest in, and cordial approval of the Female Educational Institute. It was the first time he had had the pleasure of meeting them. It would not, he could assure them, be the last. Should he not be permitted again to address them as on that occasion, he would yet have much pleasure in looking in upon them for five or ten minutes occasionally in their class-rooms. And' with his parting words advised them to diligence in the use of the means of improvement afforded by their Institute. Other lectures, it is expected, will be delivered by various gentlemen from time to time throughout the winter, - OO THE LATE EDUCATION MEETING. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE. Stz,-Respecting [St,-Respecting] the late meeting in the Philosophi- [Philosophy- Philosophical] cal Hall, the following correspoondence [correspondence] has nated [Anted] between myself and Mr. Wm. Willans, honorary secre- [secure- secretary] tary [Tar] to the British and Foreign School, which I will thank you to insert in your paper of Saturday next. I am, Sir, yours respectfully, THOS. P. CROSLAND. Nov. 1, 1850. Huddersfield, 25th Oct. 1850. DEaR [Read] Sir,-As secretary of the British Schools, I beg to call 2 yout [out] to 2 report 4 Chronicle of your rks [ks] with reference ose [one] schools at i secular education, held last week. the meeting on It will be obvions [obvious] to you, on reflection, that the nature of your allusions is calculated to injure those schools in the public estimation; and if they should turn out to be un- [incumbent] a mh, you will, Iam [I am] sure, feel called upon, in simple justice, to endeavour to repair the done those institutions, Beir [Beer] ene 7 Bare Will you do the committee the justice to investigate the grounds of your reflections upon the managers or friends of the schools; and if you find you have been misled your own conscience will suggest what you ought to do. I remain, dear sir, yours very truly, Wu, WILLANS. T. P. Crosland, Esq. Crosland Moor, Oct. 26th, [the] 1850. Deak [Deal] Str,-Your [St,-Your] communication of yesterday has caused me to refer to the remarks I made at the recent meeting on secular education as reported in the Chronicle, and I am truly at a loss to find out how the most susceptible friend of the British schools can find fault with any observations I then made. It is not, there- [therefore] fore, obvious to me, on reflection, that the nature of my allusions is calculated to injure those schools or reflect on their managers or friends. Will you be kind enough, for my information, to point out to what portion, OF my remarks in particular your strictures are I remain, dear sir, yours truly, THos. [This] P. CROSLAND. W. Willans, Esq. Huddersfield, 29th October 1850. Deak [Deal] Sir,-I am obliged by your prompt attention to my note, and I hasten to reply to yours. I have not the Chronicle at. hand, but I remember that Mr. Boothroyd had been referring to the indisposition of many to avail themselves of the means of instruction already existing, and mentioning the British School, which is not full, as a proof of it. You appear to have risen immediately to assign a rea- [reason] son why there is room unoccupied in that school. You said there was 'a secret connected with that school, and then you asked a question, which statement and query ap- [appear] pear to me to be calculated to excite suspicions injurious to the school and to those connected with the management of its affairs. For my part I know of no secret which operates to the prejudice of the school, nor am I aware of any pecuniary transactions which have not been most fair and honourable. I am, dear Sir, yours truly. M. WILLANS. T. P. Crosland, Esq. Huddersfield, October 30th, [the] 1850. Dear am in receipt of yours of yesterday. It is unfortunate that you had not the Chronicle at hand or you would have found that I did not rise immediately on Mr. Boothroyd's referring to the indisposition of parties to avail themselves of the British School, neither did such reference of his cause me to make the remarks I did. I waited until Mr. B. had done s ing, and finding that he, perhaps unintentionally, had been attempting to mislead the audience by trying to make them believe that a first- [frustrate] rate education was given at the British School, and cost only 2d. per week, then it was I said what I did-merely to show that other aid, which fell on a few, had to step in to make up what 2d. per week could not effect, but as to making allusions calculated to reflect on those schools or their management, I say distinctly that I madenone. [Madden] What I did say I meant, and it appears in print, and I really think that you or any of the committee must have been at a loss to find subject for cavil where you attempt to twist what I have said into an attack on the British Schools, or their managers or friends. What I said was true to the letter, and you know ut it was said for the purpose of pro- [protecting] tecting [testing] a Public Meeting, over which I had the honour to preside, from being led away by the fallacious inference of Mr. Boothroyd, and I contend that as chairman it was my duty so to act. Yours very truly, THos. [This] P, CROSLAND. Huddersfield, 1 Nov. 1850. Deak [Deal] Srr,-I [Sir,-I] have neither taste nor time for'controversy that leads to no practical result. My only object in troubling you was to protect the British School from in- [injury] jury. Have you any objection to the enclosed My own opinion is, that something of the sort is necessary. I remain, dear sir, yours truly, Wm. WILLANS. T. P. Crosland, P.S. Ishould [Should] Dear answer to yours just to hand, I beg to say that I never yet could understand that you had any- [anything] thing to write tome about therefore, I am not surprised at your being tired of the subject. With respect to pub- [publishing] lishing [fishing] the note you enclose, I think the fairer plan will be to publish our correspondence, and as you can have no objec- [object- objection] tion, [ion] I will, at once, place the same in the hands of the Editor of the Chronicle. Yours respectfully, T. P. CROSLAND. W. Willans, Esq. be glad of your immediate answer. (Mr. Willans's enclosure to Mr. T. P. Crosland.) HUDDERSFIELD BRITISH SCHOOL. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE. Huddersfield, Nov. 1, 1850. Srr,- [Sir,- Sir] Will you allow me the privilege of saying to your readers, that having been afraid the language em- [employed] ployed [played] by the chairman of the secular education meeting, relative to the British school, (as reported in the Chronicle of the 21st inst.,) was calculated to occa- [occur- occasion] sion surmises injurious to that school, I have called his attention to it, and have been informed by him, that in what he said he merely wished to show that (which fell on a few) had to step in and make up what 2d. per week would not effect. I remain, Sir, your most obedient servant, WM. WILLANS, Hon. Sec. to the British School. TO THF [THE] EDITOR OF EHE [HE] HUDDERLFIELD [HUDDERSFIELD] CHRONICLE. P.S.-Since my note and enclosures of this morning, I have received the following from Mr. Wm. Willans, which I will also thank you to publish. In reference to it, I have only to say that I have made no reply to Mr. Willans himself-the terms of his note forbid it. To the public I have to say that Mr. Willans was the jirst [first] to propose publication,-but in a form to which I had a decided objection, which will be gathered from the correspondence itself and as the remarks which Mr. Willans called in question were publicly made, and publicly reported; and as Mr. Willans originally ad- [addressed] dressed his note of enquiry to me in his official, and not in his private capacity, I think the purpose Mr. Willans himself had in view in originating this correspondence will be best answered by publishing it entire. Mr. Willans strangely mistakes the usage in these matters, when he says that his consent to the publication of the entire correspondence is first needed, when he has him- [himself] self proposed to publish a portion only. I am, Sir, yours Ys THOS. P. CROSLAND. Huddersfield, Ist [Its] Nov., 1850. Dear is custo [custom] believe, to ask a corres- [cores- correspondent] pondent's [pendent's] consent before pnblishing [publishing] his letters. Without the civility of asking mine, you tell me you will at once place the same in the hands of the Editor. You assume that I can have no objection, but you might have had the common courtesy of asking me. J do object, and I send you this information without delay, that you may act m [in] it. Pram not impatient to rush into print, and think I can propose another mode of settling the point between us, which will be found uite [quite] j ; able, if not quite as quite as satisfactory, quite as honour- [honour conspicuous] conspicuous, I am, dear Sir, yours truly, T. P. Crosland, Esq. WILLANS.

PRICE OF FLOUR AND BREAD IN LONDON AND PaRis.- [Paris.- Paris] Subjoined is a comparison of the present prices of wheat, flour, and bread, in London and Paris The highest price of of the first quality in Paris is 24 francs per 14 hece [here] tolitre, [to litre] which is equal to 36s. 8d. per quarter; and the highest price of white wheat of the first quality in London being 48s. per quarter, it follows that wheat is about 303 per cent dearer in London than in Paris. The highest quotation of flour of the first quality in Paris is 30 francs cents the 100 kilogrammes, which is equal to 3s. 7d. per sack of 280lb [lb] Euglish [English] and the highest quotation of flour in the London market being 40s. per sack, it follows that flour is 303 per cent dearer in London thar [that] in Paris. The price of bread of the first quality in Paris is 28 cents per kilogramme, which is equal to rather more than 43d. per 4lb [lb] loaf ot English weight and the price of bread in Lon- [London] don at the full-priced shops being 64d. per 4Ib., [ob] it fol- [follows] lows that bread is 353 per cent dearer in London than in aris. [ares] TotaL [Total] WRECK OF AN EwicRANnT [Emigrant] SHIp.-On [Ship.-On] Sunday week, the bark Johana [Johan] Frederich, [Frederick] of 400 tons, left Bremen with 140 emigrants, and a crew of 16 hands. She was bound for Charleston, South Carolina, and beside her passengers had a general cargo valued at 2,000 dollars. All went on well until the evening of Thursday week, when the Gunfleet [Gun fleet] lights were sighted, and, by a fatal error, were supposed to be the South Foreland lights. The ship's course was steered under this impression, when, at nine o'clock, the night being dark and rainy, the vessel struck heavily on what proved to be the Gunfleet [Gun fleet] Sands. All efforts to get the vessel off proved unavailing, and through- [throughout] out the night the passengers expected that she would go down, but she did not, and next morning (Friday) they were descried by some fishing smacks, but owing to the tide having receded, the boats could not getuear [Garter] her. The women and children were first lowered from the ship's side, and, aided by several men, waded through the water to the boats, by which they were conveyed to the smacks. In this way all were safely taken from the vessel, and 140 of them were ultimately landed at Harwich, the last number of them landing as late as one o'clock on Saturday morning the remaining passengers were landed at either Colchester or Brightlingsea. 'The bark belonged to Messrs. Glogstein [Gladstone] and Son, of Bremen, and was not ensured. County Court EXENSION [EXTENSION] OF JURISDICTION.-T. H. Marshall, Esq., the Judge of the Leeds Circuit, has a pointed the following days during this year for the trial o causes between 20 and 50, viz., at Leeds on the 6th November and the 6th December; at Dewsbury on the 28th November and the 19th December; at Wakefield on the 16th November and the 7th December; and at Pontefract on the 20th November and the 11th December. The mem- [men- members] bers [bees] of the West-Riding bar, resident in Leeds, have signi- [sign- signified] fied [field] their intention to attend the County Court of this cir- [circuit] cuit [cut] on those days when causes above 20 are tried. The Judge has intimated his intention to allow any cause above 5 to be specially appointed for hearing on any day named for trial of causes above 20. This may be obtained as of course at the instance of the plaintiff either when he enters the plaint, or afterwards, on application to the court and giving notice to the defendant. Ifthe [If the] defendant wishes the hearing, to take place on any of the days above men- [mentioned] tioned [toned] he must give the plaintiff previous notice of his in- [intended] tended application to the court for that purpose. A Lapy [Lay] Orator.--The meeting of the Canford Estate Agricultural Show was marked by the striking incident of a speech by the lady of the principal guest-in this instance, the baronet of that ilk, Sir John Guest. The Canford Estate is Sir John's property, and the yearly agricultural show is described as more correctly the yearly en- [encouragement] couragement [encouragement] given to his tenantry by the liberal land- [landlord] lord, who subscribes nearly all the prizes offered for compe- [come- competition] tition. [petition] The meeting was held on the 22nd of October, and Mr. Divett, [Divert] M.P., did the chief honours of speech- [speaking] making; but after the prizes were awarded, Lady Guest rose from beside her husband, and said- I am taking an unusual course, but I wish very much to propose to you a toast which lies near to my heart-'The prosperity of the labouring classes.' From a child I have had much experi- [experience- experience] ence [once] of them. I passed some time with and lived among the mining classes; and certainly a finer body of men does not exist anywhere than the mining classes. In my new home I am less acquainted, perhaps, with poorer people; but I hope to become more acquainted with them day by day. My feelings are strongly in their favour, and I am sure they will be borne out by experience. There is no finer set of people anywhere than the labour- [labouring] ing classes of this country. Look at France look at Germany. You go into a cottage in England, and you see every attempt made to be as moral and decent as possible. Excuse me for making these remarks. Tio [To] raise the condi- [condition- condition] tion [ion] and to expand the mind of the peasantry should be our aim; for without those advances it is impossible that even the most experienced agriculturist can go on. Forgive me for trespassing thus unduly upon your time, and permit me to propose The labouring classes. Atso [Also] unusual but so admirable an incident the audience were extremely delighted, and the kind-hearted lady resumed her seat amidst deafening cheers.-Chester Courant. [Count] Wistrict [District] News. WAKEFIELD. WAKEFIELD MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. YESTERDAY. On Thursday evening, a meeting of the friends of Mr. E. Green, was held at the Grazier's Hotel, South West- [Westgate] gate Ward, Mr. FLaTMAN [Footman] in the chair. A large party of liberals went to oppose the proceedings. A great tumult ensued, and Mr. Green's friends adjourned to the Arms in a body, where they were followed by Mr. Scarth's supporters. The liberals have still a majority in the council chamber. In Calder Ward, on Tuesday evening, at Mrs. Ramsden's, both parties met in the same house and a regular fracas occurred. Both parties did their best to get their men in, and the liberals seem to have out- [outgeneralled] generalled [general led] the tories. Three tories are thus returned, and five liberals. In the evening, the liberals sent a band of music round the town, headed by a number of men and boys, and a large yellow flug, [lug] on which was inscribed, Alexander, the People's Friend. Many of the libe [line] layed [played] yollow [follow] ribbons, and their coaches were decorated with yellow favours. In Calder Ward, we understand, there were a few skirmishes betwixt the rival parties, where the contest was a close run, the liberal candidate winning by only one vote. St. JoHN's [John's] WARD.

The money was taken from a place very near to where the owner was sleeping; but he heard no noise, and did not find out his loss until he got up. Mr. Bolland is a horse dealer, and had prepared on Friday to start the following day for Ireland to pur- [our- purchase] chase horses. HOLMFIRTH. WESLEYAN Reroru [Retro] Merrinc.-On [Merino.-On] Tuesday evening last, a well attended meeting, chiefly on the subject of stopping the supplies, took place in the large school- [schoolroom] room, Hinchliffe-mill, Mr. Joun [John] Armrrace [Terrace] Trustee, took the chair. The resolutions were similarto [similar to] those passed at the late Wesleyan Reform meeting which took place in the Philosophical Hall, Huddersfield-Mr. NaTHan [Than] WHITEHEAD, in moving the first resolution, remarked that it was used as an argument by the Conference party, that the itinerant preachers ought to be looked upon fathers, consequently the members ought to obe [be] them as children were taught to obey their p cents-but he wished it to be understood that there w re other fathers in Methodism beside itinerant preachers, there were local preachers and class leaders who by their age and standing ought to be looked upon as fathers, and who were taking an active part in the reform movement. (Hear, hear.) If the heads of Con- [Conference] ference [France] were to be looked upon as fathers, and the local preachers, leaders, and members as children, the fathers by their late acts had provoked their children to wrath, and the children had wanted to point out their grievances to the fathers, but the fathers would not hear them. (Hear, hear.) Mr. Jas. Hopson (local preacher and leader), in seconding the resolution, said he had been long convinced that too much con- [confidence] fidence [confidence] had been placed in the Conference, and now, through the reform movement, facts had been brought to light which must satisfy all (except those who were wilfully blind) that the doings of Conference were wrong. It had been remarked that they could not be- [become] come reformers without endangering their religion, but that was wrong. Could a man be considered less religious because he wanted it in its purity No, no. ) After a few further remarks the speaker, who was well received, sat down.-The second resolution was moved by Mr. Jonn Hanson, from Huddersfield.-Mr. RussELt, [Russell] in a lengthy speech, also condemned the acts of Con- [Conference] ference.-The [France.-The .-The] third resolution, which went directly to the subject of stopping the supplies, was moved by Mr. R. Roserts, [Roberts] local preacher, from the Huddersfield second circuit.-Mr. Frank VICKERMAN, in a very humours speech, seconded the resolution, but before it was put to the meeting J. MvORHOUSE, [Moorhouse] Esq., JP., desired to make a few remarks against the resolution, which he did without proposing an amendment. He was listened to with great patience, but ultimately all the three resolutions were carried with but three disentients, [dissentients] THE Rev. Mr. FaRTHING [Farthing] AND THE DEAN oF Ripon.- [Ripon] During the last week there has been much talk amongst the people of Holmfirth and neighbourhood, on the great contrast between the speech delivered by the Rev. Mr. Farthing, at the late anniversary of the Church of England Literary Association, held in the National- [National school] school, and the speech of the Dean of Ripon, delivered at the Town Hall, on the occasion of the late festival of the Mechanics' Institute. It being late on the Friday night, our correspondent had left before Mr. Farthing spoke; but, from what we can learn, Mr. Farthing's principles on educational matters are far too contrac- [contract- contracted] ted for the church party of Holmfirth. We are informed that he spoke strongly against Mechanics' Institutes as tending to infidelity but we think, with the Dean of Ripon, that it would be difficult for him to prove the truth of such assertion. As an able denial of such notion, we need only refer our readers to the very excellent speech of the Dean of Ripon, reported in our impression of Saturday last. GranD [Grand] Concert.-A grand miscellaneous concert, consisting of vocal and instrumental music, under the arrangement of the Committee of the Holmfirth Tem- [Te- Temperance] perance [Prince] Society, took place in the Town Hall, on Satur- [Star- Saturday] day evening last; Mr. J. Mellor presided at the piano- [pianoforte] forte. The temperance brass band was in. attendance, in full uniform costume of white trowsers, [trousers] blue jackets, and caps trimmed with lace, which gave them an im- [in- imposing] posing appearance. The principal performers were Mr. Higham, upon the musical glasses and concertino; Miss Berry, Messrs. Thomas Kaye, Charles Kaye, Henry Lee, and Abel Roebuck. There were upwards of 300 persons present, who seemed highly delighted with the evening's performance. Courts LEET [LET] anD [and] Baron.-The Great Court Leet, [Lee] comprising the Constableries [Constable] of Burton, Shelley, Shep- [She- Shepley] ley, Flockton, Cumberworth, Thurstonland, Emley, and Holme; and the townships of Austonley, Thong, Cartworth, Wooldale, Scholes, Hepworth,and Foolstone, was held at the house of Mr. Dyson, the White HartInn, [Martin] Holmfirth, on Wednesday last. Also, at the same time and place, the Great Court Baron of Sackville Walter Lane Fox, Esq., Lord of the Manor of Wakefield, when Mr. C. Beaumont, of Broad-lane, Upperthong, Mr. T. Butterworth, of Bank, in Cartworth, Mr. Thomas Crosland, of Hinchliffe Mill, in Austonley, Mr. George Stanley, of Hinchliffe Mill, in Cartworth, and Mr. Littlewood, of Upperdam [Upper dam] House, in Cartworth, proved their united heirships [heir ships] to an estate left by the late Mr. Joshua Hinchliffe, of Dam House, and situate at Malkin House, consisting of seven cottage houses, with farm house and barn; also about seven acres of very valuable land. Also, a presentment took place, presenting Mr. James Booth Woodhead, of Rid- [Ridings] ings, in Wooldale, and Mr. William Newton, of Stag- [Stagwood] wood Hill, in Foolstone, to act as Greaves, under num- [sum- number] ber [be] 20. This ended the principal business of the Court. A Marriace [Marriage] CaaLLence.-On [Clarence.-On] Thursday week an old bachelor entered a public-house at Jackson Bridge, and after having had a few glasses of ale, madea [made] proposal of marriage to the servant girl, which she accepted; he, however, doubting her sincerity, and avowing his own, . said he would lay down five shillings as a guarantee if she would do the same. She manifested more courage than he thought she had at command, and went imme- [Mme- immediately] diately [lately] for the amount to her mistress, who advanced it, which was deposited along with his in the custody of a third party. Subsequently, the old bachelor rued his bargain, and asked for his five shillings back, but received for answer that if he did not stand to his bargain he would be sacrificed. CriIcKeEt [Cricket] MatcH.-On [March.-On] Tuesday and Wednesday week, a cricket match was played at Holmfirth, between eleven of Holmfirth and fifteen of Netherthong. The latter came off conquerors. CHURCH MIssIoNARY [Missionary] ANNIVERSARY.-On Sunday week two sermons were preached at St. John's Church, Upper- [Upperthong] thong-in [in] the afternoon by the Rev. T. G. Fearne, M.A., and in the evening by the Rev. Mr. Gibson, incumbent of Longwood. Both the sermons were well attended, and a collection was made after each service on behalf of the Church Missionary Society. PRIMITIVE METHODIST ANNIVERSARY.-On Sunday week two sermons were preached in the Wesleyan Methodist School-room, Wooldale, afternoon and evening by the Rev. R. Robinson, of Huddersfield, to crowded congregations, on behalf of the Primitive Methodist preaching room in that village, when liberal collections were obtained after each service. A short time since a little boy residing in this neigh- [neighbourhood] bourhood, [boyhood] and whose parents would seldom turn beggars away without serving them with bread, happened one day to go an errand to a neighbour's in better circumstances, and whilethere [while there] a woman with a childcame [children] begging bread, butthe [birth] mistress of the house told her they had nothing to spare. The boy seemed astonished, and when he got home he related the circumstance to his mother, ani [an] at the end of his story he said, wasn't [was't] she very skinny, mother HONLEY. Pxonetic [Phonetic] Art.-Mr. Hornsby, of Armley, near Leeds, has made arrangements for the delivery of a course of ten lectures on phonography, [photography] both at Honley and Meltham. Weunderstand [We understand] that Mr. Hornsby's lectures have been attended with great success at many other places, and that he is master of the subject which he has taken in hand. A Answer.-A few days since, a gentleman, who was walking from Shelley to Kirkburton, met a little boy and asked him if he knew where Mr. Crowe lived The boy in reply said, Ah, he lives where Taylor lad goes to. AccIDENT [Accident] THROUGH FirREworkES. [Fireworks] Last Thursday evening, a person of the name of John Haigh, residing in Honley, had a quantity of squibs on the table, and a large pot which contained gunpowder. When a neighbour came in, Haigh took up the candle, and on putting it down again a spark fell on to the table and caused one of the squibs to ignite. With great presence of mind the neighbour took up the pot of gunpowder and ran with it out of the house; the sparks from the burning squib instantly set other squibs on fire to the number of about thirty, which caused great alarm for the safety of the children, who were in bed in the same room,-they were, however, taken out into the street without receiving much injury; but their clothes, the bed clothes, window blinds, &c., were much burned by the sparks. We understand Haigh was burned, but not very seriously. We hope this circumstance will act as a caution to others. Tra [Tar] Party.-On Monday week, Mr. Allen, of the George and Dragon Inn, gave a tea party to the wives (and several other females) of persons who had assisted as waiters during the late Honley Feast. About thirty sat down to an excellent tea, after which the husbands and other friends joined the party, and music and dancing prevailed until a te hour. THE SHow [Show] Noulsance.-On [Announce.-On] ight [it] week ' great number of persons, princi [Prince] and girls, ha assembled in front of a chow which had taken its stand at the Town Gate, which is the principal entrance to the town from the Huddersfield and Holmfirth roads. A cart loaded with potatoes had to pass. The children who were near did their best to get out of its way, but when it had got to the thickest part of the crowd, a move took place which caused three children to be pushed against one of the wheels of the cart, and they were all three, either less or more, jnjured. [injured] We are happy to say none of them were very seriously wounded. Since writing the above we understand the show has been removed, and we hope the authorities will not again allow any other show to stand on the same site. TrMPERANCE [Temperance] LEcTURE.-A [Lecture.-A] temperance lecture was delivered in the Methodist New Connexion School- [Schoolroom] room, Honley, on Wednesday evening last, by Mr. J. C. Booth, town missionary, from Huddersfield. The lecture was well attended, and we understand that several persons signed the pledge at the conclusion of the lecture. Hontey [Honley] Pic SHow.- As [Show.- As] appears by reference to our advertising columns, the spirited people of Honley are establishing an association for promoting and encourag- [encourage- encouraging] ing the labouring classes to keep and feed good bred pigs. The prizes vary from 1 to 5s., and ribbons are to be awarded to pigs commended, not having obtained a prize. We highly commend these associations be- [because] cause we think they are attended with much good in the localities where they are established. They are calculated to induce many of the labouring class to save money for the purchase of pigs, which would, doubtless otherwise, be less advantagously [advantages] spent. It is reason- [reasonable] able to suppose that a labouring man, having a pig, and obtaining either a prize or a ribbon of commenda- [command- commendation] tion, [ion] would create a spirit of emulation and future rivalry amongst his neighbours. Desirous, as we are, that the labouring classes should enjoy their hard-earned gains in the best possible way, we recommend the es- [establishment] tablishment [establishment] of associations for promoting and encourag- [encourage- encouraging] ing the labouring classes to keep and feed good bred pigs, as one among a variety of means tending to their elevation. CoLLEcTING [Collection] FoR [For] THE SickK.-On [Sick.-On] Saturday last, two young women who were at the factory belonging to Messrs. Shaw, Son, and Co., on hearing that two other young women residing in Honley were reduced to great distress through affliction, went amongst the work- [workpeople] people, and other friends, and got, in small subscrip- [subscribe- subscriptions] tions, [tins] about the sum of 1, which was handed over to the two sufferers, and received by them with such ex- [expressive] pressive [preserve] thankfulness as amply rewarded the collectors of the money for their pains. SpaDE [Spare] HusBanpRY.-We [Husband.-We] understand that it is pro- [proposed] posed by B. L. Shaw, Esq., to let off a quantity of land in the neighbourhood of Houley, [Honley] in small allotments, and on easy terms, for the encouragement of spade hus- [husbandry] bandry [brandy] and cottage comfort. We doubt not this laud- [laudable] able proposal on the part of Mr. Shaw will be highly appreciated by the labouring-classes of Honley, and will also answer the very considerate end for which it is designed. Hon ey Raitway [Railway] Station.--Several complaints have reached us latterly, from inhabitants of Huddersfleld [Huddersfield] Honley, and Holmfirth; of the distance they have to traverse in getting from the station to the town, owing to the circuitous character of the public road, which makes the distance more than half a mile from point to point. This is beyond question, a serious toil to pas- [passengers] sengers, [singers] and especially annoymg [annoy mg] to those who have luggage, as there is no corveyance [conveyance] plying for hire between the station and Honley. We also hear com- [complaints] plaints of the trains not arriving at Honley station anything near the time at which they are announced, and this has doubtless injured the receipts of the com- [company] pany, [any] Many persons preferring to walk from Honley to Huddersfield or Holmfirth rather than be detained some twenty minutes waiting for the train,-a matter of frequent occurrence, as we are informed, at this station. The sooner the Lancashire and Yorkshire people turn their attention to these sources of annoyance the better if they ever hope to make the line a remunerative one Horse TakinG [Taking] Fricut.-On [Friction.-On] Monday last, a young horse belonging to Mr. Joshua Beaumont, of the firm of Vickerman and Beaumont, Steps Mill, took fright near that place, and had not proceeded far before the cart in which it was harnessed went against a wall with such force as to throw the horse down with such violence as to break one of its fore legs. The animal was a valuable one, and had to be killed on the spot. Hon ry Courr.-This [Court.-This] Court Leet [Lee] and Court Baron of the Right Hon. the Earl of Dartmouth, was held on Thursday last at Honley, before Mr. Nettleton, the steward. The jury viewed a number of nuisances and dangerous places in the village, aud [and] the parties connected therewith were severally mulcted in various sums.-A survey of the weightsand [weight sand] measures had recently been made by the bye-law men, and to the credit of the inhabitants and shopkeepers, not a single case of deficiency or fraud came before the court-The following is a copy of one of the presentments made. It shews that the school- [schoolmaster] master is yet wanted, and that the Mechanics' Institute has yet something to accomplish To the Chairman & Juary [Jury] of the Cort [Court] Leake or Frank pledge held at the Coach horses Inn Honley. On the 31st [st] Oct. 1850.- [W] Gentlemen, We the undersined [undersigned] Rate Payers of Honley Wood-Bottom do Call your attention To the fotpath [footpath] by Way of William Parkins Waid [Said] Wood hanah [Hannah] Dearnley and If not Put Into Repaire [Repair] forthwith We Shall Take further Procedings [Proceedings] Imeadately-Sined [Immediately-Lined] by -Three out of the six presenters could not write. KTRKBURTON. [KIRKBURTON] Serious Accipent.-Yesterday [Accident.-Yesterday] (Friday) morning an accident of a very serious kind occurred to a man of the name of Shaw, who, it seems, was going at an early hour from Highburton to Kirkburton, and in order to shorten his journey, went by way of Burton Dean, over some fields where there is no footpath, in doing which he fell into astone [stone] quarry, of the depth of more than twelve yards, and received such injuries as to render him insensible, and to cause his recovery to be hopeless. Decrease oF Mortatrry.-During [Mortality.-During] the last two months-namely, September and October, there have been only six interments at Kirkburton, a circumstance which (the Clerk of the church says,) has not occurred before during a period of more than twenty years. Drunk AND DiIsoRDERLY.--Richard [Disorderly.--Richard] Oxley was on Tuesday last charged before the Huddersfield magis- [magic- magistrates] trates, [rates] by Policeman Glover, with being drunk and disorderly on the 14th inst. The case was proved, and Oxley fined 5s. and expenses. A Doe Casz.-A [Case.-A] rather singular charge of dog steal- [stealing] ing was on Tuesday last, preferred at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, against Joseph Brittain, by Mr. Thomas Dobson. Mr. John Sykes, solicitor, Kirkburton, ap- [appeared] peared [pared] for the complainant. It appeared that on the 13th inst., the dog in question had followed one of the witnesses for some distance, and into the house of the defendant, who offered to keep the dog if it was left. According to Brittain's own statement he had made enquiries as to whom it belonged without effect, and after keeping it about a week had sold it for three halfpence to another witness in whose possession it was found a few days ago. The bench considered the matter as suspicious, and ordered the defendant to pay expenses. SLAITHWAITE. Suarrawaite [Surrogate] Court LEet.- [Let.- Let] This annual court leet [Lee] of the Right Hon. the Earl of Dartmouth, was held on Wednesday, the 30th ult., at the Old Court House, in Slaithwaite, before J. Nettleton, Esq. of Wakefield, the steward of the court, when the usual business was gone through. The only presentment of importance was one against the proprietors of the Slaithwaite reservoir for raising the weir, thereby injuring a footpath and ren- [rendering] dering [during] the embankment dangerous to the inhabitants, it being considered too slight to sustain the water penned up in the reservoir. EMBEZZLING WOOLLEN WastTE.-James [Waste.-James] Walker was brought up at the Huddersfield Guildhall, on Saturday last, before Joseph Brook and George Armitage, Esqrs., [Esquires] charged by John Henry Kay with having unlawfully in his possession about thirty-two pounds of woollen waste. On the afternoon of Friday the 25th, [the] Kay, and his assistant John Earnshaw, proceeded to Slaithwaite for the purpose of searching the prisoner's house, in consequence of information previously received. Whilst standing on Slaithwaite Bridge, Walker them with a bundle of waste on his shoulder, and was fol- [followed] lowed by Earnshaw to a stable near at hand, where the waste was deposited, after which Walker returned home. Kay soon afterwards came up and took the waste into his possession. Walker denied any knowledge of the waste whatever, but was convicted in the penalty of 20, or one month's imprisonment. LONGWOOD. Lerrinc-orF [Lyric-of] Fire little fellow, named Richard Haigh, was, on Saturday last, at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, charged by Edwin Gledhill with damaging a quantity of copins and other woollen material, to the extent of 8s. or 10s., on the night of Monday the 21st inst. It appeared that the defendant and two other lads had been letting off crackers and fireworks during the night, and, when passing the warehouse of the com- [complainant] plainant, [plain ant] had thrown in a spure, pure, which falling upon a bundle of copins, set fire to them, and caused the damage complained of. The charge was proved, and defendant ordered to pay the damage and expenses. A ParocataL [Parental] ConstaBLE [Constable] In a DitEMMaA.- [Dilemma.- Dilemma] The worthy Dogberry [Dog berry] of Longwood appeared at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Saturday last, under rather amusing and si circumstances. During his official duties on the night of the 20th instant, it was his fortune-or rather in this instance his misfortune-to come in con- [contact] tact with sundry obstreperous navvies and drunken villagers, who treated his request for peace and order with a sort of derisive contempt, a mode of procedure very annoying and tantalising to one just dressed in a little brief authority. Determined to have justice upon the lawless band, he took out three distinct sum- [summonses] monses [Moses] for assault against different parties. The first one who answered to the call of the court-official on Saturday were Thomas andJohn [and john] Armitageand [Armitage] Christopher Hepworth, charged with fighting and creating a distur- [dist- disturbance] bance, [Bane] and Richard Blackburn with aiding and abetting the said fight and disturbance on the 20th. [the] The charge was flatly denied. Nay, more, Blackburn swore he was not there until the row was over. The constable looked incredulously, but knowingly-as much as to say, It's all gammon. When asked if he had any witnesses, he said Yes, but he aint [aunt] here. The defendants were then asked if they had, and Blackburn called his land- [landlady] lady, who positively swore that he was not there at the time stated. Against the others the offence proved was very trivial, and consequently this batch were dis- [discharged] charged on payment of expenses-Blackburn uncon- [union- unconditionally] ditionally. [conditionally] Next in order was Collingwood Shaw, who, per, You are not Collingwood Shaw responded the youth, who was out of his identity, I think J on appearing in front of the bench, excited the utmost Sarah astonishment in the 3 mind of the constable-who was perfectly confound ying [ting] a little, he turned to the defendant and said, in a tremulous whis- [his- in the arth [art] yeasor [years] tisk [risk UPP r [UP r] Shipden [Shipped] Halt ne Yes, I . am, was the reply. you you are not said the indignant constable, amid a general titter. Well, going to be n i ought to Ow whether J am Collingwood Shaw or not (Laughter.) s No, no, said the constable, turning complacent, to the bench, This ts not Collingwood er aie [are] oe worships. (Roars of laughter.) Brook. - young man ought to know best whether he is wood Shaw or not. on ee yor [or] worships, but this is not Collingw [Calling] aw- [awe] or, it is nok [no] the man J want. (Renewed laughter.) Sie [Sir] Brook, addressing the defendant- Are you wood Shaw, or are you not Yes, your Iam. [Am. Well, this was worse still-but, finding Saas [Seas] he really was not the man he wanted, the constaiiie [consider] confessed his mistake, and the man was di after an intimation from the bench that he, at lama, ought to have his expenses paid.- [paid] The third chargesam [charges am] preferred against George Whitwam, for having co an assault on the same night, between eleven ami twelve o'clock. Boldly again was a denial enunci [Nuncio] by the defendant, who said he was prepared to alibi. At this announcement the poor Dobgerry [Degree] os aghast, and could do no more than ask for an adjomme [adjoin] ment, [men] to produce a witness, which was graxtod. [corrected] BERRY BROW. EmMBEzzZLING [Embezzling] LEATHER, IRoN, [Iron] anp [an] Hemp-On day last, at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, before Jewgiiin [Legion] Brook and George Armitage, Esqrs., [Esquires] George Sugdes, [Sugden] m called upon to account for certain articles of leatieer [leather] iron, and hemp, found in his possession, but not his business as a shoemaker. The information by Mr. Superintendent Heaton, under the Worsted 'teat It appeared that on the night of the 21st inst, Mi Heaton whilst searching the prisoner's house, im [in] ve ference [France] to another charge, found the articles prodersil [prides] in Court, and knowing they were not used in the truiie [true] which the prisoner followed, he considered the maksar [marks] so far suspicious as to justify him in bringing it the bench. Evidence was examined to prove ia shnilar [similar] articles had been employed by Messrs. Miley, contractors, in the construction of the Lockwood duct, but there was no proof whatever of there haz ag [ha ag] been stolen. Mr. J. I. Freeman, defended, and that this was an application of the Worsted Act, whade [Wade] had never been contemplated, and trusted that tzar worships would not sanction such a proceeding by conviction. There was no charge of felony, but sieqpay [spay] because this man had certain articles in his possessiam, [possession] which however were not used in his trade, he must 'te prepared by invoice or other positive evidence to paawe [pa awe] that they had honestly come into his possession. After hearing the case, Mr. Brook said that however desewun [design] the magistrates might be to keep the application Gf aim Worsted Act within certain restrictions, they had mat the power. It was certainly a new feature, but Lad his attention directed to the clauses of the act, Le was satisfied they had no alternative but to comvacs. [comics] He should, however, be very glad if the prisoner would appeal, and thus obtain a more competent opinion 2338 the meaning and intention of the act. THURSTONLAND. PLayinc [Playing] aT CRICKET ON SuNDay.-A [Sunday.-A] young named Alfred Heeley, was charged at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Tuesday last, by Robert Kay with playing at certain unlawful sports and pastimes em tre [te] Lord's day. As the offence was acknowledged, the eae [ear] was not gone into, but we were informed that the fortunate delinquent had been guilty of cricket piayagg [paying] on the 21st inst. Discharged on payment of expenses. MARSDEN. Drcenk [Drink] anD [and] DisonDERLY.-On [Disorderly.-On] Tuesday last, batese [Bates] the Huddersfield magistrates, Margaret Elis was by the parochial constable, Hall, with being drunk sad disorderly. Mrs. Ellis, who said she was on her real to Leeds to join her husband, had fallen inte [inter] evil.com- [company] pany [any] on the previous night, and drowning dull cx with too much beer, she became very noisy, and tie services of Mr. Hall were called in between elever [lever] anit [anti] twelve o'clock.

TuE [Tue] Court LEEet.-This [Let.-This] Court Leet [Lee] and Court Basee [Base] of the Right Honourable the Earl of Dartmouth, Last of the Manor, was held at the Old Manor Heuse, [House] Kam [Am] heaton, [Heaton] yesterday (Friday), before Mr. a Wakefield, the steward, and a respectable jury. Thus one of the most ancient courts in the country, bemg [beg] composed of the owners and tenantry of preperdy [property] originally possessed by the Knights' Templars Jerusalem.
