Commissioner SUTCLIFFE said they recollected that the charges were against Thomas and Townend, and these two men were anxious to exculpate themselves, and thought it onl [on] fair they should give them an opportunity of doing so. mmussioner [Commissioner] CROSLAND replied that the charges were not gone into. Commissioner MoorE [Moor] contended that as the allega- [illegal- allegations] tions [tins] were made, the parties charged ought to have an opportunity of rebutting them,-but still it should be left to the committee, and if the committee thought proper, they might report uponit [upon it] afterwards. He thought it was quite proper that the committee should be furnished with facts to set the officers right, for he believed the officers could set themselves right if they had an opportu- [port- opportunity] nity. [city] (Hear, hear.) The CuaiRMaNn [Chairman] thought self, as the charges had be read or referred to the com- [comm] Mr. Thomas had cleared him- [him] i not been substantiated. The question was, whether, after the decision of the committee, they could go into the matter again. Commissioner KaYE [Kaye] saw no reason for going into it again, The CLERK to the Boarp [Board] of Works had had a little conversation with Mr. Thomas that day (Friday), who, after the charges had been made public through did not know how to obtain redress in any other way than by addressing the Commissioners, Commissioner J. FIRTH said it would not be a judicious thing to have the letters read. , Commissioner SUTCLIFFE thought it would be an act of injustice if they did not, and Commissioner CRosLanD [Crosland] thought it would be an act of injustice if they were. Commissioner J. FinTH [Firth] submitted that as the charge had been withdrawn, it would not do to go into it again. Commissioner SUTCLIFFE said the fact was, that if they had gone into it some of the attorneys would have been brought in guilty, and Perhaps one of them whom he could name would have been found to have bribed the parties. Commissioner CROSLAND considered that Commissioner Sutcliffe was going out of his way to attack a gentleman who had appeared before the committee. to SUTCLIFFE explained that he had been sO, Commissioner BEAUMONT was sure that the attorney would be brought in guilty of bribery if the matter was gone into. Commissioner JERE [HERE] Kay moved, and Commissioner J. Sear seconded, that the letters be referred to the com- [committee] mittee. [matter] The minutes of the Lighting Committee were then read. PAVING COMMITTEE. On the minutes of this committee being read, Commissioner ARMITAGE intimated that a respectable ratepayer had suggested to him that it would be much better to use small instead of large stones for paving, both for cattle and carriage traffic. Commissioner EaSTwoopD [Eastwood] said that the subject had long engaged the attention of the Paving Committee, and that they had ultimately come to the conclusion that the broad stones were preferable to the narrow ones. However, the Paving Committee would take the subject into consider- [consideration] ation. [action] Commissioner SWALLOW thought the nine-inch stone the best for light work, but for heavy rising ground he preferred the six-inch stone. Commissioner JT. FirtH [Firth] said he had another subject to bring before the Paving Committee, he referred to the state of the road through Spring Wood. As their chair- [chairman] man was connected with the railway company, he hoped he would bring the subject before the proper authorities, for really the road was extremely dangerous, and must have something done at it. The CHAIRMAN replied that the engineer of the com- [company] pany [any] had already had orders for repairing the road, but neglected doing so-but he would see that it was attended to. DRAINAGE COMMITTEE. The minutes of this committee was read, and had refer- [reference] ence [once] to the various sewerage operations, at present con- [conducting] ducting in the town. A number of letters which had passed between the Commissioners and Mr. Hathorn, [Thorn] as to new works and drainage, were read after which Commissioner SWALLOW wished to say a few words as to the pro drainage and paving of New-street. Under the impression that there was no drainage in New-street, it had been decided to at once proceed with these works in that street-it had now, however, come out that there was a very fair drain varying from seven to eight feet deep. Moreover, the inhabitants had never complained of insuffi- [insufficient- insufficient] cient [cent] sewerage, or expressed any wish for the proposed drain. Under these circumstances he considered that it would be a waste of money to drain New-street at present, when there were other parts of the town standing in far greater need of improvements. He would therefore move That the intended contruction [construction] of a new drain in New- [New street] street be suspended for the present. . The accuracy of some portions of this statement was questioned by Commissioners CROSLAND and MOORE. Commissioner MooRE [Moore] intimated that it was a question which had been submitted to the Paving Committee, who were as anxious to save the public money as Commissioner Swallow. With respect to New-street, no practical man- [man whether] whether Mr. Swallow or any one else-after making a pro- [proper] per examination of New-street, and knowing how frequently expense was being incurred in its repairs, could doubt that the least expensive plan would be to have new levels, new plans, and the street paved. For this reason, there were many small streets which required paving, and they wanted the sets from New-street, which would do very well for the smaller streets. It was simply a question of time. These works must be undertaken either now or next spring, and therefore it had been decided by the committee to com- [commence] mence [fence] them at once. It was proposed to make the main sewer, and leave the paving until spring, in order that the ground might become consolidated. As to their finances, if they had not been a rate behind, the Commissioners would have been in a state of affluence. Notwithstanding this, he contended that they were not in a bad financial position, tor if they were deficient in money in hand, surely their credit was good, and no doubt if they required for works of necessity, they could borrow without difficulty. Their expenses had not been greater since the Improve- [Improvement] ment [men] Commissioners' Act came into force, but the im- [in- improvements] provements [movements] effected were far more numerous and important. Commissioner BEAUMONT having seen the plan of New- [New street] street, thought there were other places much more requiring attention, and had great pleasure in seconding Commissioner Swallow's motion. The CHAIRMAN was rather disposed to take the same view as Commissioner Swallow. He thought there were many parts of the town that. needed to be attended to before New-street. As to the question of leaving the pav- [pa- paving] ing open until the ensuing spring, in order that the ground might become consolidated, he was quite of opinion that the drain might be made, and paved upon immediately, by taking care to thoroughly pound and press down the ground He had no objection to these works being under- [undertaken] taken at a proper and convenient time but he really thought there were other portions of the town in greater ntion. [nation] os 1 T. FrrtH [Firth] had made a similar objection when the subject was s previously before the Commissioners, and he was still of the same opinion. They had so many works on at present, that he should prefer seeing some of them completed before they brought their men into the town. . MooRE [Moore] considered that the committee were the best judges in the matter. There were plenty of men to be got only give the order for the works to pro- [proceed] ceed. [seed] issi [is] JERE [HERE] KAYE inquired whether, now that it wai [was] there was a ood [od] drain in N ow street, if the fresh works were proc [pro] ed with, woul [would] e inhabitants of New-street have to bear the expenses. was informed that they would not, and he then to say that, as there had been no fault found by the J tants [ants] of New-street, there was no need to proceed wi at Pre EASTWOOD, as one of the Paving Com- [Committee] mittee [matter] wished to make one or two remarks. The com- [committee] mittee [matter] were satisfied that, [C] vat iz was best to proceed at Tate the question how far the expense would affect the inhabitants of New-street, it would be she of bere rowed money, to Le repaid in thirty years, and pal 1 in e rates of the town; so that the New street would only pay their portion, and there ore 4 no ial [al] cause of complaint. He should prefer, himacif [himself] that the drain was made now, and paving p a ae to take up any more mmissioner [mission] BEAUMONT was Sorry e r of 'thelt [health] time, but when they took into consideration such streets as Northgate, where, during a shower of rain, the i d and dirt, and where, when- [engineers] the town, it was found zon [on] prevalent, he could not understand why so well-regulater [well-regulate] a street as New-street, though suffering from no Se, should be well drained whilst the other parts cottages were ever typhus or illness . He was sure no one suffe [suffer] more from an aver than did the inhabitants of Cropper's-row. 'csioner [cation] SUTCLIFFE made a few explanatory re- [commission] Commissio [Commission galowed [allowed] by CROSLAND and ARMITAGE in support of ag Seay [Sea] pent which was carried then put the motion, by a of two, the numbers being eight for, and five against Mt ag of the Nuisance Committee, Scavenging Committee, and Burial-Grounds' Committee, were next read. In reference to the latter a memorial, detailing the deplorable and disgus [disgust] state of the parish and other burial grounds, adc [ad] to the Bishop of Ripon, prayin [praying] him to close the said grounds, was also read, together with some correspondence on the subject. A letter had been received from the Bishop of Ripon, acknowledging the re- [receipt] ceipt [receipt] of the memorial, and his intention of giving the whole question his earliest attention. At the Burial Grounds' committee of the 20th ult. the cemetery question was again discussed, and they came to the conclusion that the plot of ground twelve acres in extent, situate at Eger- [Eager- Egerton] ton, was the most eligible, at the same time the committee were prepared to take into consideration any other site which might be suggested by Mr. Loch. The minutes of the Hackney Coach and Lodging-house Commitee [Committee] were read over, when a conversation ensued as to the propriety of enforcing the Commissioners' powers as regarded g-houses. On a subject of so delicate a nature, it was difficult to keep clear of fault. The present regulations were finally understood to be those which should ac upon. Commissioners Firth, Moore, England, and the Chairman took part in the discussion. an respective minutes of the different committees were n . The next business brought before the Commissioners was the deputation to Mr. Loch respecting the laying out of the new town, the report in reference to which (kindly placed at our disposal by one of the committee) will be found in another column. Commissioner JERE [HERE] KAYE proposed, and Commissioner J. FirtH [Firth] seconded, that the report be received and en- [entered] tered [teed] on the minutes, which was carried. A letter from Mr. Bolton, borough accountant, Leeds, was placed before the Commissioners, containing his ac- [account] count for examining and putting into working order the Commissioners' boo The charge was 139 10s. 6d., which, onthe [other] motion of Commissioner Kaye, seconded by Commissioner EaSTWoop, [Eastwood] was ordered to be paid. THE GAS QUESTION ONCE MORE. On coming to Mr. Riley's proposed question to the Law- [Law clerk] Clerk, in reference to the pubchise [purchase] of and the power to supply the inhabitants with gas, by the Com- [Commissioners] missioners, Commissioner MoorE [Moor] requested that the Clerk might read the resolution formerly come to, in which the gas question was barred from discussion for six months. Commissioner CRosLAND [Crosland] submitted that the notice given at the former meeting was, not that the Clerk be requested to give an opinion, but that at the meeting then convened Mr. Riley would ask the Clerk the question, as the Chairman decided at the former meeting, that such a qnestion [question] put without notice was illegal, and contrary to the usual custom of the Board. Commissioner RILEY said, he simply gave notice of g motion to the effect that, at the next meeting he would ask the Law Clerk the question what were the powers of the Commissioners in reference to supplying the inhabitants with gas. The reason why he had given the notice was, that he considered it had improperly represented in the town that the Commissioners had power to erect gas works, and furnish the inhabitants with gas; and he (the speaker) had contended that they had not that power. It was for that reason he wished to ask the Law Clerk his opinion on the Act of Parliament. He still, however, main- [maintained] tained, [gained] with all deference to the chairman, that any Com- [Commissioner] missioner could ask that question of the Law Clerk without giving notice at all, e CHAIRMAN said he had on the former occasion ad- [advised] vised the Law Clerk not to answer the question off-hand, but take time, considering the importance of the uestion, [question] to give a proper answer and he thought it was fair to pe un Clerk that he should have such notice. (Hear, ear. Commissioner RILEY said that the Law Clerk was pre- [prepared] pared to answer the question at the last meeting, as he had given notice of his intention to put the question a few days before. (Hear, hear.) Commissioner CROSLAND agreed with the Chairman that due notice ought to be given of the intention to ask such a question, and now, as he conceived, was the proper time to advance anything which might have to be advanced in op- [opposition] position to this mode of procedure. Having a due con- [consideration] sideration [side ration] of the respect they owed to themselves-to the legality of their proceedings,-and also being wishful that their acts, when they went before the public, should carry with them that weight and consistency which would make them effective, and win respect for the Commissioners as a body, were the reasons which actuated him in opposing the question given notice of by Mr. Riley being then askedi [asked] (Hear, hear.) The speaker then reminded the meeting that some six weeks since Mr. Moore moved a resolution asking for a committee to enquire what were the powers of the Commissioners in respect to gas-works in general in Huddersfield. Upon that occasion he (the speaker) seconded the motion, which was backed by a memorial from between four hundred and five hundred rate- [ratepayers] payers, who were all, or nearly all, large gas con- [consumers] sumers [Summers] in the town. There were, however, persons at that board who differed in opinion with him (the speaker) on that question, and among others was Mr. Riley himself, who moved a resolution to the effect that this Board has nothing to do with the gas question, and that therefore the consideration of the question be adjourned for six months. That motion was carried by a large majority. Whether the Commissioners, by adopting that course, acted discreetly, was not for him to say, but he would challenge the Law-Clerk-whose duty it was to guide them legally-if he abided by the terms of their act, to say that such a question could be asked, while a resolution remained on the books deferring all consideration of the question of gas for six months. fe maintained that they must first rescind the resolution of the previous meeting; that must also be done by a greater majority than that by which it was originally passed; and before such proposition was entertained to each Commissioner must have nine clear days, notice. The Law-Clerk No, seven days. Well, seven days-thus clearly showing that the Clerk could not le- [legally] gally [gall] give any such opinion. (Hear, hear, from Commis- [Comms- Commission] missioner Moore.) Was it the intention of the gentleman who had moved for the Law-Clerk's opinion to carry it to any practical or benefical [beneficial] result (Hear, hear.) If the opinion was that the Commissioners had power to raise money and purchase the present or erect new gas-works would the gentleman Mr. Riley. undertake to assist in carrying that opinion out (Hear, hear.) Ifhe [If he] would there would be something practical in the result of such a question and answer. (Hear, hear.) But he (the speaker) apprehended that the only motive by which the gentleman was actuated, and why they as a body should be called on to do an illegal act, was in order that Mr. Riley might set himself right, as he called it, w th the and thus get out of a newspaper squabble into which he had entered. (Hear, hear.) This being the case he thought it would be undignified and very improper to enter upon the consideration of the question for any such purpose. As the Chairman was well aware he (the wae [we] not making these objections to the opinion of the Law-Clerk being given because he did not wish the question to be taken up by the Commissioners, but simply because the question was about to be forced before them in an illegal and unfair manner. He opposed it as an ille- [ill- illegal] gal act; and because, also, there was no practical step contemplated on such an opinion. (Hear, hear.) More- [Moreover] over, if the opinion of Mr. Clough was adverse to the pos- [post- possession] session of such powers by the Commissioners, they would be giving the gas-works a power over them which would certainly be objectionable, especially on the ex-parte [ex-part] opinion of the Law Clerk. If the Commissioners had committed an act of which they repented let them act like men-face the difficulty (ironical cries of hear, hear) and retrace their steps. A Voice We do not want your advice. He had no doubt they would like to do without his (the speaker's) advice; but he still thought it would be more respectful to the inhabitants at large, and to the signers of the memorial, if they at once said, we are wishful to retrace our steps; we see we were wrong; and you are right than try to re-open this question for the reason as- [assigned] signed by Mr. Riley, that they had heard Chronicle law and Birkbylaw, Birkby, and that, therefore, he should like tohear [to hear] the Law Clerk'slaw. He conceived that the Board were in this matter showing undue haste, and pursuing a course which did not do them much credit. He would, therefore, be- [believing] lieving [living] the whole course pursued illegal, move that the Law Clerk do not answer the question submitted by Mr. Riley. Commissioner RILEY was prepared on a former occasion to hear the discussion on the gas question, but when it had been put off on two occasions, unnecessarily, he certainly moved th adjournment of the question for six months. If Mr. Crosland could show him that the Commis- [Comms- Commissaries] Messrs, G. Armitage, Crosland, Moore, and John Brook, eran [ran] handed in a written protest against the lega- [lea- Leger] or the proceedings, The Law-CLERK 'hen read his opinion, which was a document of great letgth, [length] the purport of which was that, in his opinion, the Canmissioners [Can missioners] had power under their act to erect and purchise [purchase] gas-works, but that they had no power to supply the inhabitants with gas. Commissioner CROSLAND said he had taken the opinion of a high legal autiority [authority] on the question, which differed entirely with that just read by the Law Clerk. He had a notice on the books, 'he purport of which was to refer the opinion of the Law (lerk [clerk] to a committee of enquiry, but inasmuch as, if he moved such a resolution he should be countenancing an illegal act, he should decline submitting such motion to the bard. (Hear, hear.) It was said they had not the power t supply the inhabitants with 3 if so, they ought to have had it, and the lawyers were alone to blame, if, after spending 4,000 in an act of parliament, those powers were notembraced. [not embraced] Butone [Burton] thing was clear they had power to nake [make] gas they could lay down gas in the streets they coud [could] prevent any other party from break- [breaking] ing up those streets, and further, they could collect the gas rates from the mhabitants [inhabitants] in advance, without any esh [es] powers The subject then dropped. Commissioner J. BooTH [Booth] gave notice that at the next meeting he should move that the meetings cf the board be held on Thursday, fastead [Stead] of Friday evenings, The meeting thenstood [then stood] adjourned. a HUDDERSFIELD MECHANICS' INSTITUTION. MONTHLY MEETING. The usual monthly meeting of the above institution took place-F. Schwann, Esq., in the chair-on Satur- [Star- Saturday] day evening last, in the saloon of the new building, in Queen-street, when Mr. Sikes, the originator of the Prelimi [Prelim] Savings' Bank, delivered an address to the members and friends, upon the importance of cul- [cl- cultivating] tivating [cultivating] habits of economy and saving, in early life. Mr. Sixes commenced by reading some passages from his printed pamphlet, setting forth the nature and object of Prelimmary [Preliminary] Savings' Banks. The Huddersfield Mecha- [Mechanics] nics' [nic] Institution had already established such a bank, for the benefit of its members and friends, and he desired to induce every person present, whether a member f the institution or not, to deposit his odd pence, skpences, [sixpences] and shillings in that bank; for he had ampk [ample] opportunity of observing the beneficial in- [influence] fluence [influence] which this habit of saving excrcised [exercised] over the cir- [circumstances] cumstantes [circumstances] and condition of the working-classes. Mr. Sikes then gave several examples of working-men, in this neighbourhood, who began by laying by a few shillings, and endedig [ended] secumulating [accumulating] several hundred pounds. The habit of saving, he said, grows upon a man, when once commenced, as fast as the contrary habit of spending does 3 and, with how much more beneficial results, the experience of every one could testify Besides, how- [however] ever, the external benefit which the fact of having money in the bank produces to the depositor, there were other and higher benefits to be derived from it. There was the feeling of independence-one of the most noble and patriotic of feclings- [feelings- feelings] the growth of which it was the duty of every good man to encourage. It was a singular fact, that very few persons had ever become paupers who had once deposited money in the savings' bank. There was a sort of charm in saving which pro- [protected] tected [tested] them from innumerable evils, and the philosophy of this doctrine could readily be snown [known] by analysing it, and tracing it through all its social and moral bearings. Mr. Sikes concluded his homely and admirably adapted address amid loud applause. Frep. [Free] Scuwann, [Schwann] Esq., then rose and said, he had listened with much pleasure to the address of his friend Mr. Sikes, which he hoped and believed would produce the good effect which the speaker intended it 1 produce. He could only say that the Preliminary Savings' Bank had his best wishes for its success; and he was sure if the young men present would sincerely consideriis [considering] claims upon their support, they would, one and all, forthwith become depositors. It was impossible to estimate what might be the result of saving money in early life. It had laid the foundation for innumerable fortunes many times before now-and it might and would do so again. It whilst Mr. Sikes was relating those pleasing anecdotes of men who had accumulated hundreds of pounds by beginning to save sixpences, that he had also a tale of this sort to tell. This watch (he continued, ex- [exhibiting] hibiting [biting] his watch to the audience) was the fruit of his first savings, when a very young man, and he could assure them he regarded the fact with very pleasurable feel- [feelings] ings. It was a perpetual reminder to him of the triumph of principle over mere pleasure and gaiety. For he was often sorely tempted by his com- [companions] panions [pains] to go to this and the other place of amuse- [amusement] ment, [men] during the time that he was saving money for the purchase of his watch-and people could not go to places of amusement without cost-and so having set his mind upon the watch, he determined to forego every personal gratification that could interfere between him and the possession of it. And was it not far better to make such sacrifices, independently of the material benefit they might produce, than never to make a sacri- [sari- sacrifice] fice [five] at all, but simply obey our desires and inclinations He could testify that all sacrifices, made with a good conscience, were wholesome discipline for the mind, and brought with them a very profound wisdom. So that it was beneficial in all ways to learn early the habit of saving. Nor should any one think meanly of the little sums which he might be able to deposit. For great things may spring from small beginnings. What were railroads, and joint stock banks, and canal com- [companies] panies-what [Panis-what -what] even our trade and commerce, but orga- [organ- organisations] nisations-or [nations-or -or] the results of organisations-built together by small savings If a man spentall [spent all] and saved nothing, he could deposit nothing, and could never, therefore, bea holder of property in any great or small undertaking. Mr. Schwann sat down amidst loud cheering. The meeting, which was numerously attended, was enlivened by arecitation [irritation] from Mr. Nelson, and by songs and glees from the members of the singing class con- [connected] nected [connected] with the institution, assisted by Messrs. Calvert, Hartley, Senior, and Miss Whitham. Mr. Whitham, organist at Wolverhampton, presided at the piano. Our readers will be interested to learn that the father of one of the members was so pleased with his son's recital of the object and proceedings of this meeting, that he voluntarily sent, on Monday last, a handsome donation to the president for the use of the institution. New MopeEt [Mope] Piano-FortEs.-Broadwood's [Piano-Foster.-Broadwood's] New Model Bichorda [Richard] Grand Piano surpasses everything hitherto made with two unisons, for brilliancy of tone and elasticity of touch its comparatively moderate price must also give it an additional claim to favourable noticce.-Collard's [notice.-Collard's] New Cottage Piano-Forte This is decidedly the best cheap Piano-Forte manufactured by any house of long established repute. The tone, touch, and durability may be relied on; in fact, the instrument is warranted. The idea was sug- [su- suggested] gested [rested] to Messrs. Collard and Collard by an article which appeared some time since in that highly and deservedly popular publication, Chambers' Journal, the object being to bring Piano-Fortes within the reach of that vast and growing body, the middle classes, who, through the opera- [operations] tions [tins] of the Hullah and Mainzer [Miners] systems, and the improved taste of the age, have of late years acquired the capacity of appreciating the social and intellectual advantages of a musical education. It is considered that Messrs. Collard and Collard have fully succeeded in meeting the require- [requirements] ments [rents] pointed out in the article alluded to. There can be no doubt a discerning public will give every encouragement to Messrs. Collard and Collard, and that the alacrity with which that highly eminent firm determined to provide so great a desideratum will be properly rewarded, and stamped with the seal of universal approbation.- [approbation] (See Mr. dvertisement [advertisements] in another column.)

He then intimated that although he had intended to retire in September, yet, from the spirit evinced that evening he should most certainly become a candidate in at the ensuing election, in order that the ratepayers might judge whether the course he or Mr. Riley had pur- [our- pursued] sued was the most manly; and whether men should be re- [returned] turned who would neutralise the organised majority who were swamping every measure for the public good in that chamber.

They, therefore, wish to correct an impression that is calculated to lull common caution and prudence, and to intimate that they are taking steps which they hope will place the holders of released property in a satisfactory position, and ultimately revive that confidence in the trustees and agents of the estate which is so desirable for all parties.

Aspinall, not out ove [over] MARKETS. HUDDERSFIELD, TuEsDaY, [Tuesday] JULY 30. We have no material alteration to report in our market. from last week. Buyers were numerous and a great amount of business is done in all discription [description] of goods. A fair busi [bus] ness is-doing in wool, prices firm. The next London sales we believe are fixed forthe [forth] 22nd. A very large quantity will be brought forward-say 50,000 to 60,000 bales. BRaDFORD [Bradford] MARKET, THurspay.-WooL.-The [Thursday.-Wool.-The] high rates at which Wools have been brought in the country recludes [preclude] all chance of effecting sales here, and at present but little is doing. Time will have to develope [develop] the result of the conflict between the byer [bye] and the seller.- [seller] YARNS The contracts for Yarns are not quite so favourable to the consumer as last month, and spinners are, owing to the advance sought for Cobourgs [scourges] and the advance on Wools, but little disposed to enter into large engagements.- [engagements] PIECES There is no slackening in the demand, but the price is not at all commensurate with the advance on both cotton and worsted yarns. The manufacturers' avocation, notwith- [not with- notwithstanding] standing all the ery [very] of good trade, is any thing but rumunerating. [remunerating] Hatirax, [Hatteras] Saturday, July 27.-The chief inquiries in our Piece-hall, to-day, were for damasks and low stings, nei- [ne- neither] ther [the] of which kind of goods are to be readily obtained, partly from the current prices not being remunerative, and partly from the difficulty of obtaining warps for those descriptions. The yarn trade is very active, at improving rates but, as regards low wefts, the merchants seem desirous to realise their late purchases before they give out new orders. There is not very much doing in wool, as the spinners purchase sparingly, and take the advantage of making their selee [seller] tions [tins] from the large stocks in the market. LEEDs, [Leeds] Tuesday, July 30.-The trade for woollens con- [continues] tinues [tines] in the same active condition, as noticed last week, The attendance good, and business has been brisk conse- [cone- consequent] quent [Queen] upon the appearance of large buyers. The show of oods [goods] small. . MACCLESFIELD, Tuesday, July 30.-There is more dispo- [dis- disposition] sition [sit ion] evinced to operate in goods, but manufacturers are not disposed to go on at late current rates, they being sary [say] much below value, compared to the price of raw material, which has advanced considerably of late. Stocks of goods are comparatively light, and this will no doubt operate fa- [favourably] vourably [favourably] for the manufacturers. There is considerably more inquiry for thrown silks, especially of the finer descrip- [Scrip- descriptions] tions, [tins] of which there is a scarcity and as the market stands for raw silks, a large advance must be paid on these ualities [qualities] to make them pay. The raw silk market con- [continues] tinues [tines] active, at the late advance, and some sorts of silks are held from market at a further advance. RocHDALE [Rochdale] FLANNEL MARKET, Monday, July 29.-We have had a good demand for all descriptions of flannels, and the prices asked forthe [forth] last two or three weeks past have been fully maintained. The wool market was also moderately brisk, and prices firm. WAKEFIELD CORN EXCHANGE, August 2.-Since this day week the weather has been pretty good in this neigh- [neighbourhood] bourhood, [boyhood] but from other parts south we hear of much rain, and the accounts are very general of more or less defect in the growing crops. Our arrivals of grain are moderate. The buyers act with extreme caution. Sellers are firm at last week's prices, but no extent of business is passing. Barley fully as dear oats and shelling steady ; beans held for more money. Other articles as before. Wheat, 8,350; beans, 860; peas, 315; barley, 197; oats, 703 shelling, 5,046. Lonpon [London] CoRN [Corn] MARKET, Wednesday July 3lst.-The [last.-The] favourable weather we had here on Monday appears to have been general throughout the country, and at most of the leading markets held yesterday its usual was experienced, as the trade was generally very dull, and the advance obtained at the close of last week was partially lost still, considerable tenacity was displayed on the part of the holders, as the complaints of the growing crop are rather extending than otherwise. A similar feeling prevails here, as, although the foreign arrivals of wheat are large, and there were but few buying, yet there was no disposition to give way in price, and the trade remains exactly the same as on Monday. Barley continues in fair demand, and Monday's prices of oats are maintained notwithstanding the large arrivals of foreign. HuLL [Hull] Corn MaRKET, [Market] Tuesday, July 30.-We have again a good show of English wheat, and prices are ls. dearer. In foreign not much doing. All kinds of spring corn are no easier of sale. NEWCASTLE-UPON-TYNE CORN MARKET, Tuesday, July 30.-Owing to a return of the fine weather, the market worea [wore] lifeless aspect. Holders remain firm, and millers act with caution. Supply from the interior small, but liberal from abroad. In the few transactions that took place both in wheat and flour. Saturday's prices were fully maintained. In barley, oats, and other articles, no variation. LIVERPOOL CoRN [Corn] MARKET, Tuesday, July 30.-There 's a good attendance here to-day, but the weather being very fine business proceeds slowly. Buyers act with extreme caution, and the rates of Friday cannot be obtained for wheat. The few sales effected being about 1d. over last Tuesday's quotations. Flour of good quality being scarce moves off at full rates. Oats and oatmeal are each held at last week's prices, but the sale is slow. Beans and the turn dearer. Barley and malt without change. Indian corn has nearly lost the advance of Friday. The demand is very limited, and holders are more anxious to realise. LEEDS CorN [Corn] EXCHANGE, Tuesday, July 30.-Arrivals of wheat keep good. The return of fine weather causes con- [considerable] siderable [considerable] dullness. Rates are ls. per quarter above last week, but at Friday's prices holders are firm. The busi- [bus- business] ness done is, however, much more limited than that day. Barley as before. Oats, shelling, and beans, steady in value.-Arrivals Wheat, 9,443 barley, 902; oats, 664 ; beans, 631 shelling, 104; peas, 43; rapeseed, 362 lin- [in- linseed] seed, 384. StaTE [State] OF TRADE, MANCHESTER, Tuesday last.-To the diminished animation and firmness of last week has suc- [such- succeeded] ceeded [needed] a revival of confidence and the spinners have more than re-established the quotations of the previously active week. There are too many contracts in hand for the pro- [producers] ducers [reducers] to be individually willing to make extensive sales ; yet the transactions of the day have reached a considerable aggiegate [aggregate] amount. The India-houses still keep aloof from the goods market; and 40-inch shirtings, with other articles, of which they are principal purchasers, continue therefore, very much neglected. At the recent sale of the splendid collection of paintings, belonging to Lord Ashburnam, [Abram] the Earl of Carlisle became the purchaser of a fine picture by Nicolas Poussin- The Triumph of Bacchus, -at the price of 1,200. This pic- [picture] ture, [true] which is well-known to connoisseurs as the Mont- [Intemperance] morence [encore] Poussin, is esteemed to be one of the finest works of this master in existence, and will add another to the treasury of art at Castle Howard. TO CORRESPONDENTS. To Our HoLMFiIrTH [Holmfirth] READERS.-At the time of going to press our Holmfirth parcel, from some cause or other, had not come tohand. [to hand] We have been compelled also to withdraw our notice of the Wesleyan Reform Meeting at Holmfirth until next week. A New Sone [One] To an OLD Tung, [Ting, though possessing considerable merit, is respectfully declined, as not suit- [suitable] able for our columns. A SUBSCRIBER calls attention to the unprotected state of Spring-wood, especially on the north side of the railway cutting. He also complains of the unsafe nature of the bridge over the Penistone line, especially for children. We have heard several complaints on the same subject, but trust that this hint will be acted upon by the parties in whose hands the matter rests. BIRTH.
