Jules Favre, in warm lan- [language] guage, [gauge] called on the ministry to speak. M. Baroche, [Roche] the Minister of the Interior, said the government was not responsible for newspaper articles and that it was not intended to withdraw the license of sale in the streets from the journal which had thus offended. A violent scene followed; and, in the midst of much confusion, the minister declared that the ministry Lad not the slightest intention or wish to attempt a coup deat, [dear] or to violate the constitution. Ultimatcly, [Ultimately] the assembly passed to the order of the day; and thus terminated the scene. The only matter before the Legislative Assembly, on Saturday, was the discussion on the budget of the war department. Some interest was attached to an amend- [amendment] ment [men] presented by M. Charras, [Shares] to reduce by 30,000 francs the salary of General Changarnier, [Changing] as commander- [commander] in-chief [chief] of the first military division. M. Charras, [Shares] hav- [have- having] ing alluded to the misunderstanding which public report, he said, affirmed to exist between General Chan- [Unionist] inister [minister] of War, this latter officer as- [assignee] garnier [Garner] and the Minis eye cended [ended] the tribune, and declared that the position o General Changarnier [Changing] was s0 high that the government would oppose with all their force any reduction in his income. The short address of the minister was received with loud cheers, and the reduction proposed by M. Charras [Shares] was rejected by an immense majority. The other proceedings were not of any interest. In the sitting of Monday, the budget of the Ministry of Marine was adopted without debate. Next came the budget of the colonies, in the discussion of which there arose a question of considerable interest. M. de Flavigny [Flagging] addressed an interpellation to the Minister of Foreign Affairs with regard to the repzration [reputation] due to the merchants of Havre and Bordeaux, in consequence of the seizure of fifteen of thcir [their] vessels by the govern- [government] ment [men] of the United States at San Francisco. Gereral [General] Lahitte [Latte] replied that the title of those French subjects to satisfaction was incontestable, had been acknow- [acne- acknowledged] ledged [ledge] at Washington, and that the French government would prosecute the 2ffair [fair] so as to obtain full compen- [company- compensation] sation. [station] Tien [Ten] the house passed to the budget of finance, which was voted without any debate of intcrest. [interest] At the demand of the President of the Assembly three bills were placed on the order of the day between the two budgets, namely the bill on the policy of theatres, the bill on the railways from Tours to Nantes, and from Orleans to Bordeaux, and the bill on the colonial in- [indemnity] demnity, [indemnity] the Assembly then adopted the purely formal articles of the budget, which remained definitely fixed at 1,367 millions. In the Assembly, on Tucsday, [Tuesday] M. de Flavigny [Flagging] drew the attention of the Minister to the insult offered to France, and the injury inflicted on her citizens, by the American authorities at San Francisco, who had seized several French merchant vessels aud [and] imprisoned their crews.-General Lahitie [Late] replicd [replied] that representations had been made to tac [ta] Amezican [American] government on the subject. The papers are filled with accounts of incendiary fires, which have taken place within the last week in different paris [parish] of France, but especially in the middle and south. For some time past, the agricultural dis- [districts] tricts [tracts] have been infested by miscreants to whom these fires are attributed; and the system has of late spread to such an extent as to cause great alarm throughout the country. The Jfoxiteur [Fixed] contains a letter from the Minister of Finance to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, informing him that the yachts bclonging [belonging] to various English clubs shall be admitted into all the French ports without payment of any navigation ducs, [ducks] on showing a certifi- [certify- certificate] cate [care] from the secretary of tie club to which the yacht belongs. The committee of the initiative of the Legislative Assembly have rejected the proposition of M. Leverrier, [Lever] to remove from the town where the Assembly may sit, all persons not domiciled in the department, or who cannot prove they possess sufficient mcans [means] of existence. La Republique [Republic] publishes the following description of the Commission of the Legislative Assembly - The Commission charged to replace the National Assem- [Assume- Assembly] bly [by] during the prorozation, [proposition] and to watch over the mainte- [maintain- maintenance] nance of the constitution, is compesed [composed] of 39 members, in- [including] cluding [including] the members of the Bureau of the Assembly whose names, and, as far as it can be done, political opinions we here give - M.

MM. Leo de Laborde, [laboured] Leflo, [Level] and Bedeau [Bed] may be considered as endowed with energy. There may be reckoned tour Republican votes, among whom General Lamoriciere [Maurice] is incontestibly [incontestably] the most con- [considerable] siderable. [considerable] There are two Bonapartists, and two whose opinions it is impossible to define. Those whom we have denominated as Legitimist [Legitimate] Tories are those who would readily accept a fait [fair] accompli, [accomplish] whatever it might be. We have called Constitutional, those who desire, from one motive or an another, the actual maintenance of the Con- [Constitution] stitution. [institution] Such is the committee, about which so much noise has been made. When its composition is studied, we may feel convinced that it will attempt nothing against the Constitution, and that it desires the actual maintenance of it. Equal conviction cannot be felt very great resisting force, when the little s by the majority of its member is taken into. essed [Essex] it is said that immediately after the prorogation MM. a Hautpool, [Happily] Baroche, [Roche] and Pineau [Pine] will retire from the Ministry, It is rumoured that the Baroche [Roche] is shout to retire from the cabinet. This is far from improbable, but as yet there are not sufficient grounds for the report. The friends of Lamoriciere [Maurice] ixtend [extend] to bring forward this general as a candidate for the presideatship [presided] in 1852. The Monitcur [Montague] announces that the Minister of Marine has decreed a gold medal of honour to Captain Denison, of the American schooner Jacob W. Ryason, [Reason] for having saved six seamen who were separated from the French whaler the General Teste, [Test] and for having care- [carefully] fully provided them with every necessary in the most generous and disinterested manner during 34 days. The same journal contains a decree of the President of the Republic, conferring the dignity of Grand Officer of the Legion of Honour on M.

GREAT BATTLE BETWEEN THE DANES AND SCHLESWIG-HOLSTEIN [SCHEDULES-HOLSTEIN] ERS. [ER] The Schleswig-Holsteiners [Schedules-Holstein] have been completely de- i engagement, which took place at nt e advanced positions of General von [on] Which was fought on the 25th ult. was slight affair, of which accounts have encounter the Danes 5 y made their appear- [Appleton] olstein [Holstein] position two different sides, to recommoitre [reconnoitre] position, possible, to make a com- [artillery] artillery, they could not bring any of their field-pieces into say. while the Holstein troops had one poundat [pound] battery, from which they could throw shells with gres [greys] effect. Danes advanced from the western side upon fn position of Jubeck, [Quebec] and with three batta- [bat- battalions] lions of infantry succeeded in forcing the passage of the Treen, near Sallibro, [Salisbury] which was defended by one batta- [bat- battalion] lion of Holstein Jagers [Jagger] with great dgtermination, [determination] when late in the afternoon General Willjsen [Wilson] in person made his appearance at the head of some fresh troops, and forced the Danes to relinquish the position, which he retook himsclf [himself] at the head of his men in the most gal- [gallant] lant [lane] manner. Night fell upon the combatants, with the loss of about 150 men on the part of the Holsteiners [Holstein] in killed and wounded, including a couple of officers, Captains Budow [Bud] and Alsin. [Alison] In both actions the Danes could not use their artillery with advantage, which accounts for the little loss on the part of the Hol- [Ho- Holstein] steiners, [Steiner] compared with what the Danes are said to have suffered-a report upon which very little reliance can be placed. The fight was resumed at daybreak on the morning of the 25th. [the] General Willisen [Wilson] commanded the centre, the Prussian general, Van der Horst, commanded the left wing, and Colonel Von der Tann, late aide-de-camp of the King of Bavaria, commanded the right wing, the artillery having at its head the Hanoverian Colonel Von Wissel. [Wise] At ten o'clock the corps of Von der Tann, being carried off by the ardour of its commander, was cut off in its first attack by a superior body of the Danes, and never succeeded in joining the main body under Willisen. [Wilson] His fate up to the latest moment was uuknown [Union] Weakened by the loss of its left wing, the army of Willisen [Wilson] was vigorously attacked in the centre by the advancing Danes, who bringing forward all their artil- [artillery- artillery] lery, [ley] succeeded, by four in the afternoon, in com- [completely] pletely [lately] overthrowing the Schleswig-Holsteiners. [Schedules-Holstein] The melee and carnage are described as frightful the rage shown on both sides by the combatants being most violent. General Willisen [Wilson] sought after his defeat to rally under the walls of Schleswig, [Schedules] but, pursued by the vic- [vice- victorious] torious [notorious] enemy, he was unable to make good that posi- [post- position] tion, [ion] which was occupied by the Danes, and the Schleswig-Holstein [Schedules-Holstein] army took refuge under the Walls of Schestedt, [Suggested] between Eckernforde [Oxford] and Rendsburg, [Rends burg] and on the Eider. Though unsuccessful, the people have given another proof of their good qualities. The Schleswig-Holsteiners [Schedules-Holstein] fought with a coolness and determination unequalled. Their opponents, the Danes, fought better too than on former occasions, a result which is to be attributed to the superiority of the present over the former race of Danish officers. The loss on both sides in killed and wounded is computed at 10,000 men. FURTHER PARTICULARS BY AN EYE-WITNESS. Yesterday (July 25) was the first occasion on which I have seen the encounter of hostile armies. The heavy rain and mists which fell from three to eight o'clock in the morning prevented a thorough view of the scene of action, but the general movements on both sides, and their intentions, were tolerably apparent. Having arrived somewhat late on the ground, I saw, first of all, that the swarm of tirailleurs [trawlers] on all sides of the Schles- [Scholes- Schedules] wig-Holstein [Holstein] position, having previously advanced ve close to that of their enemy, were gradually withdraw- [withdrawing] ing before the superior numbers of a Danish body of the same kind. The sharp, smart, irregular firing of the rifles, and the whistling of the bullets through the air, was then taken up by the more regular.peloton fire of the infantry, which proved unsuccessful in checking the further advance of the Danes, who progressed stea- [sea- steadily] dily [daily] forward, until they approached very close to the Idstedt [Institute] position in the centre, and the chief bodies on the wings. Artillery was then brought into play, the deafening roar of which, and the rushing, whizzing noise of whose iron messengers made quite a different im- [in- impression] pression [Prussian] both on the ears of an inexperienced newspaper correspondent, and the progress of the advancing Danes. Their movement was changed they retreated, followed at first by cavalry at the charge. The cavalry, towever, [however] had but slight effect, as they were not in sufficient force. The rifiemen [firemen] and infantry again advanced, and has- [hastened] tened [tend] the steps of the Danish troops, until they in their turn reached the position, and supported by their heavier altillery, [artillery] compelled the Schleswig-Hol- [Schedules-Ho- Holstein] steiners [Steiner] to retire. Twice was this scene renewed, each time with greater loss on either side, while to the east and west burning houses and villages added increasing sternness and grandeur. On the secend [second] occasion, while the Danes were advancing, a Danish Bomb struck an ammunition waggon within three hundred yards of my pesition; [position] it instantly exploded with a tremendous noise, killing two men and wounding several others. During each advance upon the Danes, the wounded men lying in all directions were carefully collected and car- [carried] ried [red] behind the lines in waggons at the seat of the medical staff, where they were temporarily attendcd [attended] to, and thence transported to Schleswig. [Schedules] Friends and foes were all treated alike; no distinction was made. Pri- [Pro- Prisoners] soners, [Somers] too, began to make their appearance, brought in twos and threes, and sometimes larger numbers. One de- [detachment] tachment [detachment] brought in upwards of thirty at one time. There was indeed much to observe and comment upon, but similar scenes are unhappily too frequent in history to require repetition here. While watching, them, how- [however] ever, the Danes commenced their third attack, previous to which it became apparent that they were drawing up in line a much larger force of infantry, cavalry, and artillery, than had hitherto been seen on their side. After a short pause on their side, broken only by the riflemen between the two lines, their artillery moved into position, and the conflict became at once most severe and sanguinary. General Willisen [Wilson] brought up every available man to re- [resist] sist [list] the great danger but as the position which I had occupied until then, together with other spectators, became dangerous, we retired a short distance further behind, not a little startled by the sudden appearance of Danish cannon-ball, which hastened our retreat, and entirely upset the equanimity of some of us. For two hours the cannonading continued. At the expiration of that period orders arrived for the retreat of the train and baggage-waggons, and seeing that several small bodies of soldiers were also hastening from the field, followed by larger bodies in regular order, I hastened to get back to Schleswig. [Schedules] The cause of the retreat is already told, together with the regular mode in which it was effected. The soldiers whom I saw defile through Schleswig [Schedules] in the afternoon and evening were not at all disheartened they marched like men, with heads erect, and open but powder-begrimed coun- [con- countenances] tenances, [tenancies] though tired and worn. The inhabitants of tie town stood at the doors, with wine and refreshments of all kinds, which were freely given and gladly accepted by the gallant fellows. AMERICA. The Europa came to Liverjool [Liverpool] on Sunday, and re- [reports] ports that the iron steam-ship, Viceroy, lost off Seal Island, had been abandoned. Several attempts had been made to rescue her, but unsuccessfully; and her hull had been advertised for sale. The commercial news may, upon the whole, be re- [regarded] garded [garden] as of a satisfactory character. The New York stock market had been rather less active in consequence of the suspension of business from the death of the late President. Great confidence being reposed in his suc- [such- successor] cessor, [Cesar] prices had not in any degree been affected. The prospects of the forthcoming harvest, as regards corn and wheat, are of the most cheering character. A cargo of new Southern wheat had been sold in the New York market at 125 cents per bushel. New flour had been exhibited at Rochester. Concerning the cotton crop the accounts continue to partake of the most gloomy character; but, from the tone of many of the reports we have read, we very much incline to the belief that the statements of the injury sustained are very much overstated. The New York markets for cotton con- [continued] tinued [continued] active, with free sales at full prices. Flour was steady, with small sales, chiefly made to the Eastern and local trade, including common to good common State brands at full prices. There was also a good deal doing in Canadian in bond. Wheat of the old crop was a good deal in demand for mixing with the new, for milling purposes. Corn was scarce, and sales were made at better prices. There was not much business done in foreign exchange for remittance by the Europa, but the rates for bills on London were firmly supported at the previous quotations, viz. from 110 [W to 1104. THE LAST MOMENTS, DEATH, AND FUNERAL OF PRESIDENT TAYLOR. The telegraphic accounts by the last steamer were vague and imperfect as to the last illness of the late president. By this arrival we have full details, and we quote from the New York Tribune for Europe the fol- [following] lowing - President Taylor was attacked with the first symp- [stamp- symptoms] toms of the disease, which terminated in his death, on the evening of the 4th July. On the morning of that day he was apparently in his usual health. In company with his family, and several of the heads of department, he attended the public celebration at the National Monument. After great exposure to the sun, and con- [considerable] siderable [considerable] fatigue, he returned to the presidential man- [mansion] sion in a state of partial exhaustion. Calling for refresh- [refreshments] ments, [rents] and saying that he felt' very hungry, he partook freely of cherries and wild berries, accompanied with copious draughts of iced milk and water. His appetite at dinner was good, and he indulged it without any un- [unusual] usual precaution. Within an hour he was seized by cramps in the stomach, which soon took the form of cholera morbus. [morbid] He was unwilling to avail himself of medical aid, believing that the attack was temporary, and would yield tohisstrong [strong] constitution. Towards midnight he grew worse, and it was evident that his condition alo [al] highly dangerous. He remained in this state without any important change until Saturday evening. On Monday morning the disease, which had Dade rapid encroachments on his fram [farm] a e, assumed the form of typhoid fever, and from this time there was but a faint consternation produced by this mmour [Moor] was removed by an official bulletin at half-past three that the crisis was passed, and that he was then beyond imminent danger. The bells rang for jqy, [jay] and bonfires were lighted by the children in the streets. The house was surrounded by increasing streamy [stream] of people, who were animated by the new hope; but st seven in the evening every face was covered with gloom by the announce- [announcement] ment [men] that the president was dyng. [dying] At a few minutes past ten it became evident that his time was short. Prayers were offered by the clagyman [clergyman] in attendance. After tasting a glass of water he was informed that he could not live many hours. He then asked for his family, who were in the adjaceat [adjacent] room. They were sent for, and soon entered. The interview was over- [overwhelming] whelming; Mrs. Taylor prostratirg [prostrate] herself at the bed- [bedside] side, and her children clinging wound her with sobs and groans expressive of their agony. He was now free from pain, and on being asked whether he felt com- [comfortable] fortable, [football] replied Very, but the storm in passing has swept away the trunk. Soon after, adverting to the state of the country, he said, I am about to die; I expect the summons soon. I have endeavoured to do my duty faithfully, and I regret nothing but to leave my friends. These were his last audible words. He attempted again to speak co his wife, but his voice failed him. The physician adminis- [admin- administered] tered [teed] a cordial, but all was over. The spirit of the dying man had departed. He breathed his last without a struggle. On the 12th the remains of the president were deposited in state in the est room of the White House, upon a magnificent calanalque [Colonial] of black velvet, trimmed with white satin and' silver lace. The body was in a lead coffin, enclosed in ore of maho- [mao- mahogany] gmy, [my] with silver decorations. The late countenance remained unchanged. He lg as if in a calm sleep, and immense crowds visited it during the day to take a last fond look at the old hera [hear] The best order prevailed, though some little confusionwas [confusion was] created by a light-fingered gentleman abstracting a pocket-book, containing eighty dollars, from one of the citizens. The funeral of the president took place on Saturday, July 13th. The occasion was honoured with appropriate and impressive solemnities. The military escort, commanded by the veteran General Scott, was composed of detach- [detachments] ments [rents] of the United States troops, with a large number of volunteer militia companies from Baltimore and the district of Columbia. In the principal cities of the union the day was observed by a suspension of business and suitable ceremonies. On the 10th, [the] in the senate, a warm eulogium [Belgium] was delivered by Mr. Webster upon the character of the deceased magistrate. On the 16th Mr. Webster gave notice of a bill to erect a monument to the president in Washirgton. [Washing] President Taylor, a few days before his death, had prepared a stroag [strong] message to congress, directed against the threatened invasion of New Mexico by Texas. THE NEW RESIDENT AND GOVERNMENT. On Wednesday, July 10, the Vice-President, Millard Filmore, [Failure] who, by the constitution of the United States, succeeds te the executive chair, took the oath -of office in the hell of the House of Representatives, in the presence of both houses of congress. The names of the new cabinet which is to be connected with the adminis- [admin- administration] tratior [ratio] of Mr. Filmore [Failure] has not yet been officially an- [announced] nounced [announced] but a telegraphic despatch from Washington, on the 16th, [the] says- It is definitely settled that the following will be the new cabinet of the President - Mr. Winthrop, secretary of state Mr. M'Kennan, secre- [secure- secretary] tary [Tar] of the treasury; Mr. T. Butler King, secretary of the navy; Mr. Vinton, secretary of the interior; Mr. Graham, secretary of war; Mr. Morehead, postmaster- [postmaster general] general Mr. Hopkins (Alabama), attorney-general. The session of congress, which adjourned immediately on the death of the President, was resumed on Monday, the 15th. [the] No important business was transacted. The New York Herald says According to the most re- [reliable] liable accounts from Washington, the general impres- [impress- impression] sion in that city is, that the accession of Mr. Filmore [Failure] will work an entirely new change in the personnel of the cabinet; and that the policy of the new govern- [government] ment, [men] as well as of the President, will be more in har- [harmony] mony [money] with that of the great whig statesmen and leaders in congress, Mr. Clay, Mr. Webster, and their associates, than was the exclusive policy of the late President and his cabinet. Such a course of policy cannot fail to exercise a favourable influence on the slavery question, and the passage of the compromise bill before congress. AWFUL FIRE IN AMERICA, AND LOSS OF LIFE. The city of Philadelphia has been thrown into a state of the most fearful excitement and distress in con- [consequence] sequence of a terrific conflagration which broke out on the 10th ult. The fire broke out about four p.m., ina large double storehouse belonging to a grocer and com- [commission] mission merchant. The building in question is of great extent, and occupied by persons carrying on business in very inflammabie [inflammation] articles, such as saltpetre and the like. As soon as the flames obtained a fair hold upon the building they raged with prodigious fury, spreading from room to room with incredible rapidity. The great saltpetre stores were soon reached, when several suc- [such- successive] cessive [excessive] reports were heard, and finally a tremendous explosion took place, spreading terror and destruction around. The force of the explosion was lateral, shatter- [shattering] ing the walls of the building, but it spent itself princi- [Prince- principally] pally in an upward direction, carrying with it into the air, to the height of 300 feet, large burning masses of combustibles, with bricks, &c. A heavy girder was thrown sheer up about 100 feet, and fell upon one of the neighbouring houses, breaking through the roof and burying and injuring some of the inmates, who were engaged in hastily removing their effects. No fewer than 3,000 persons were on the ground at the time, and the spectacle of fright and confusion, and the wailing and screaming of women and children, made up a scene of horror beyond description. The explosion at once put an end to all hopes of ex- [extinguishing] tinguishing [finishing] the fire. Burning cinders, fragments of wood, and flakes of different materials fell around in every direction, setting fire to many of the adjacent houses. Many of the firemen were thrown, with the pipes in their hands, from the roofs of the surrounding houses, and others knocked down from the engines, and some of them burned or lacerated in a dreadful manner. Nor were the firemen the only sufferers, for the explo- [expel- explosion] sion, together with the immense body of flame which instantaneously burst forth on every side, proved fatal to many of the bystanders. Several men, women, and children were instantly killed numbers were frightfully scorched, and dreadfully burned and mangled; while many others were hurled into the docks, some of whom were drowned. On the Delaware avenue there was a large crowd of spectators, and when the panic seized this portion of the multitude, a great number of them sprang into the river, utterly unconscious of what they were doing. The fury of the devouring element kad [ad] now gained such a height that all attempts to check it proved una- [unavailing] vailing.

Within this space there might be about 300 buildings Many of the sufferers are of the poorer class, to whom the calamity will be ruinous. Some of the first of the old Quaker mansions are consumed.

On the 29th of May a public meeting took place in the Town-hall, for the inauguration of a School of Industry, for some time in contemplation at the pre sidency. [Sidney] The Chief Justice presided; the whole of the members of Government, the Judges of the Sudder [Udder] Adawlut, [Adult] and the greater part of the general staff now at the presidency, were present. The school has since been opened for the reception of pupils, of yhom [him] there is a considerable number now in attendance, or in immediate prospect. The objects of the establishment are, in the first place, to reclaim juvenile culprits, and teach them trades, by which they may earn their bread; secondly, to endeavour to improve the processes of manufactures and advance the resources of the country. Mr. Beadon has been appointed to inquire into the state of the Post office at Calcutta, Mr. H. Forbes at at Madras, and Mr. W. Courtney at Bombay, with a view to the general improvement of the system. It is ex- [expected] pected [expected] that the franking system, which debits the public with the carriage of Government letters and papers, and is liable, besides, to the most enormous abuses, will be recommended to be done away with; that a large reduction on letter postages, [postage] with probably the prepay- [prepayment] ment [men] system, will be introduced, and that the charge for the transmission of newspapers will be commuted from postage to a one anna (1d.) stamp, enforced on the same general plan as at home. Mr. R. M. Stephenson and the engineering staff of the Bengal Railway have arrived at Calcutta, and finding the plan concocted betwixt the London Board and the Court of Directors impracticable, are proceeding on the examination of a new line in hopes of obtaining a funda- [funds- fundamental] mental change in all their arrangements, and a further and fresh guarantee from the Court of Directors.. The most feasible scheme seems to be to proceed in the direction of Burdwan, [Burden] where large returns may be looked for from the transmission of coal and other minerals.

Sir,-Amongst the numberless ideas for a monu- [mon- monument] ment [men] worthy so great a man as the late Sir Robert Peel, allow me, through the medium of your columns, to suggest the following. Many of your readers are already aware that a very pretty plan and model for a tower on Castle-hill, with the estimates for the same, were prepared by our talented architect, W. Wallen, Esq., with whom origin- [originated] ated [acted] the idea of marking the spot where stood the old Roman fortress, from which the hill derives its name ; also to serve as an observatory for astronomical and other purposes, and a landmark for the whole county, which design would have been carried out but for some slight difference in respect of the ground. Now, it strikes me that this same tower, if erected, might serve a twofold purpose, viz., that for which it was originally intended, and a lofty base for a colossal figure of that statesman who so lately wielded the destinies of one of the mightiest nations on the face of the earth; and who, sacrificing the esteem of those by whom he was sur- [Sir- surrounded] rounded whilst in office, opened our ports for the recep- [recipe- reception] tien [ten] of the staff of life. Should this meet the views of the committee formed for carrying out the proposed monument, it might also serve as an inducement to the trustees of the Ramsden estate, to grant the necessary land for that purpose. Should you deem this worthy of a place in your valu- [value- valuable] able paper, it will oblige, yours respectfully, Huddersfield, July 31st. [st] ALPHA. a CHURCH AND RAILWAY TIME AT HOLMFIRTH. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HDDERSFIELD [HUDDERSFIELD] CHRONICLE. Srr,-Allow [Sir,-Allow] me through the medium of your columns, to call the attention of the responsible parties, be they who they may, who undertake to exhibit to her Ma- [Majesty] jesty's [jest's] lieges the apparent time of day at Holmfirth. Whatever be the true time, solar, lunar, or solo-lunar, it is certain that there is a discrepancy between the clock of the parish church of the above place, and that at the station, of near a quarter of an hour. This must cause serious mistakes to parties intending to take the train, and who may not be aware of the difference be- [between] tween railway and ecclesiastical time a mistake which actually occurred this day to myself and a friend, who, on arriving as we supposed full five minutes early, were informed that the train had departed ten minutes pre- [previously] viously. [obviously] Hoping that the attention of those whom it may concern may be drawn io the above circumstance through the appearance of this in your next Saturday's paper, allow me to remain, sir, yours respectfully, J. W. 0. Huddersfield, August 1, 1850. NIGHT RIOTS IN HUDDERSFIELD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE. Sr1r,-Will [Sr,-Will] you allow me, through your columns, to call the attention of the authorities to the singular in- [inefficiency] efficiency of the night watch, as a police force in Huddersfield Disturbances are continually occurring in the streets at night which the watchmen are unable to quell, because they are not numerically strong enough for this purpose. I have, on more than one occasion, been witness to these street broils, out of my chamber windows, when I would much rather have been asleep ; and whilst the drunken rioters were cuffing, fighting, and blaspheming, the watchmen have stood by utterly helpless, or vainly endeavouring to appease the wrath of their Lynch-masters, [Lunch-masters] by alternate threats and entrea- [treatment- entreaties] ties. Now, Sir, I pay my police rate to be protected from these disgraceful outrages upon the public peace and the public morals; and I conceive therefore-in- [inasmuch] asmuch [as much] as the machinery of our local government is inadequate to cope with these outrages-that I have good ground for complaint. It was but on Monday last that I and my family, and indeed the whole of my neighbours, were kept awake from twelve o'clock at night until five the next morning, by a brutal and ruffianly mob who turned the area in front of the Crown Tavern, at the corner of the New North- [North road] road, into a scene of disgusting revelry, playing all sorts of games there, and alternating the night's entertainment with an occasional battle of fists and feet. One man sat quietly on the steps ofa [of] door, smoking his pipe, and evidently enjoying the fun, and delighting in the mufiled [filed] music produced by the kicks of the comba- [combs- combatants] tants, [ants] as their well-shod feet came in contact with the head and ribs of the wretch who was unfortunate enough to be knocked down. The watchmen were evidently afraid of interfering with the rioters, and two or three of them stood at the corner of Mr. D. Midgley's ware- [warehouse] house, for some time, without attempting to put down the disturbance. They did interfere, however, I believe, at last, but without success; for the disturbance con- [continued] tinued, [continued] with occasional cessations, until five o'clock in the morning and the last scene I saw was a fight of so brutal and inhuman a character thaf [that] I will not pain your readers with any detail of it. I may add that the corner of the New North Road is the constant scene of drunken rows, and boisterous blackguardism, [blackguard ism] between eleven and twelve of the clock at night, especially on Saturdays, when the peace of the whole neighbourhood is disturbed by them. I think, Sir, these facts are of such public interest, that you will find a place for their insertion in your paper. Yours, CIVIS. [CIVIL] ---- NECESSITY OF A PUBLIC BATH FOR THE PEOPLE OF HUDDERSFIELD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE. Sir,-It is a rather singular coincidence that A Lover of Health and Exercise should have written a letter on The Bath Accommodation of Huddersficld [Huddersfield] at precisely the same time that I had penned one for a imilar [similar] object, but which, through an inadvertency [inadvertence] on my part was delayed being sent to your office until it would have been too late for insertion in the Chronicle of the current week. But still, as I have entered more largely into the subject than he appears to have done, and have come to a different conclusion from that which he has come to, I hope that you will not deem its. insertion, together with a word or two in reply to the suggestion contained in the letter of A Lover &c., as in anywise impertinent to your readers. - It is asubject [subject] for congratulation that we have now an efficient journal of our own, in which our require- [requirements] ments [rents] and necessities can be made known and dis- [discussed] cussed, and everything interesting to us receive due at- [attention] tention [mention] in its columns-a journal at once free and inde- [ind- independent] pendent, courting the frankly expressed opinions of all lasses, and candidly declaring, and energetically advo- [adv- advocating] cating, [acting] its own. Well supplied with a newspaper, the next good thing is to make 7 the medium of obtaining what is necessary or desirable. Among the NECESSARY I shall briefly endea- [end- endeavour] vour [our] to show that a Bath, where the working-classes can bathe, for a merely nominal fee, or gratuitously, ranks first. And, to prove the necessity for a place of 'this kind, I think it scarcely necessary to enter into an and devote almost as much care to the erection of baths mosques. . sa eli ae there may be some who do not justly appreciate, or are not fully aware of the physical and moral advantages of ablution, a few Te marks upon thein [then] will not be inappropriate here. The human skin, besides being the sensitive covering of the body, connecting it with surrounding nature, performs many important functions. During every moment of our existence we are adding new particles our frame in place of old particles, which are thrown and of the organs concerned in this change the skin is the most important-both absorbing or drawing in new matter, and excreting or throwing off old, it is indeed one of the great depurative organs of our system, and it is constantly employed in 'ty and igg [ing] its impurities, and without its incessant acuvity [activity] a agency there can neither be health nor long life. ve outermost covering of the skin, or scarf skin as it is called, is composed of minute seales, [sales] which are under- [undergoing] going continual change-they fall off by constant wear- [wearing] ing and friction, and their removal by ablution is ren- [en- rendered] dered [deed] necessary, not merely to the health of the skin, but to that of the entire body. Perhaps it is as an ex- [exhalant] halant [gallant] of waste matter where the important functions of the skin are most strikingly exhibited. Dr. Erasmus Wilson, by an elaborate calculation, makes out the number of pores in the skin of an adult person of ordi- [ord- ordinary] nary size and bulk to be about 7,000,000, each of which is the aperture of a little tube of about a quarter of an inch long, so that the entire skin of such a person con- [contains] tains [trains] 48,600 yards, or nearly twenty-eight miles of per- [preparatory] spiratory [respiratory] tube. The quantity of waste ,matier [matter] carried off by this immense sanitary system, if I may so call it, is from two to three pounds daily. In warm weather, and during exercise or hard work, the amount perspired is of course much greater. Many operatives who work in heated rooms, says a writer on the subject, throw off through the skin perspirable [desirable] matter to the amount of twenty p -unds [funds] a day. . When in a healthy state, and kept free from impuri- [impure- impurities] ties, the skin exhales exactly that amount of moisture which is necessary for bodily comfort and the preserva- [preserve- preservation] tion [ion] of health, and if perspiration is suddenly checked the body is soon thrown into a state of high fever. The skin also acts by the process of perspiration as a regu- [reg- regulator] lator [late] of the heat of the body, the watery particles which are thrown off, mostly in irruptions, carrying off its sur- [Sir- surplus] plus heat. The perspiration, when it passes through the skin, carries with it saline and animal matters which are precipitated and left on the skin, from which they can only be removed by the process of washing. When these matters are not so removed they accumulate, and by the absorbing power of the skin, parts of them are again carried into the system, where there is every rea- [tea- reason] son to believe that they act as a poison, more or less virulent according to circumstances, producing fever, inflammation, and even death itself. Hence, the im- [in- importance] portance [importance] of frequent ablutions of warm or cold baths, and of cleanliness and washing of all sorts. Little need I say of the moral beauty of cleanliness- [cleanliness cleanliness] cleanliness which indicates self-respect, and is the reot [rest] of many fine virtues-and especially of purity, delicacy, rand decency. I might even go farther, and say that purity of thought and feeling result, in some measure, from habitual purity of body; for we are all, toa [to] great extent, influenced by external conditions and circum- [circus- circumstances] stances; and habit and custom as regards outward things stamp themsclves [themselves] deeply on the character-alike upon the moral feelings and the intellectual powers. It is not, I believe, too much to say, that the slovenly habits of thinking, and, I fear it may be very generally pronounced with truth, that the body that is habitually dirty will have a mind that is dirty. Having thus shown the physical and moral value of cleanliness, I come to the fact, that Huddersfield and its neighbourhood, containing an immense working po- [population] pulaiion, [plain] whose daily occupations necessarily defile the skin, hardly contains a place of any sort, either in or about the town, where the great unwashed can wash themselves unmolested. There is scarcely a pond or stream where those who earn their bread by the sweat of their brow can wash that sweat off without render- [rendering] ing themselves liable to two heavy trespass fines, one for undressing on the property of one party, and the other for plunging into the property of another. Yes, Mr. Editor, in this large manufacturing district, with an at- [atmosphere] mosphere [sphere] always thoroughly impregnated with soot and smoke, which make their way through the clothes, de- [defiling] filing the linen, flannel, and skin, and consequently ren- [en- rendering] dering [during] bathing or washing necessary to the cleanliness and health of every one,-I say in this district, thus situated, there is not a sheet of water anything like pure or clean, in which the inhabitants can lawfully or un- [unlawfully] lawfully bathe. The canal (particularly that part of it known as the second lock), was, two or three years ago, the favourite resort of the clerks, artizans, [artisans] but more especially of factory workers, and others similarly employed, who congregated in hundreds on the warm summer evenings. to revive their flagging energies with a dive in its dirty waters, oft-times seasoned by exhalations from the bleached carcase of a dog or cat, or both still, never much less welcome on that account to the dirt-loaded bodies of these industrious people. The use of this portion of the canal, for such pur- [our- purposes] poses, is now strictly forbidden (and every other part, I believe, though evidently not with the same intention to enforce the penalty), and very properly so, for, from its proximity to the town, and the road on its bank being at that time the thorouzhfare [therefore] between two thickly populated districts, it was often the scene of disgust- [disgusting] ing exhibitions men of depraved taste taking advantage of the females who had to pass that way to expose their persons in a most shameful manner. While the demands of public decency required the prevention of bathing at the second lock, the re- [requirements] quirements [requirements] of public health showed the necessity for th erection of a bath. But as the rich seldom move on behelf [behalf] of the poor, but when the poor strongly express their wants, or the necessity for a move, so they, not always having a full perception of what they do require as in this case, allowed the circumstance to pass over in silence,-no bath was erected. And from that time many gave over bathing altogether, regarding it merely as a luxury, that might be given up without any evil consequences, and others with different opinions took to the more distant parts of the canal, to the river, and the pond of a neighbour- [neighbouring] ing manufacturer. The river I consider to be scarcely better than a great uncovered sewer. The little water it contains in sum- [summer] mer [Mr] is literally thick and black with woad and im- [in- impurities] purities of every discription, [description] and rolls over its dark pebbly bed as though it were hardly able to move alone with its heavy load of filth,-the refuse of the numerous factories, villages, and towns upon its banks. In hot weather, bathing time, the stench emitted from the shallow places of it is almost over-whelming, indeed it is, as the Lover of Health and Exercise says, totally unfit to bathe in. Yet even wallowing in this poisonous filth; (for it cannot now be appropriately called by any other name,) is not unattended by casu- [case- casualties] alties, [allies] for this, like all other rivers has banks, and these are used for agricultural purposes, and have fences intersecting them, and the trodden-down-water-bite- [bite robbed] robbed turnips and wheat, and breken-down-fences, [broken-down-fences] sometimes bring the heavy nailed shoes of a justly in- [indignant] dignant [indignant] farmer man in unpleasant contact with the naked posteriors of a luckless transgressing bather. I myself have seen bathers' clothes uncerimoniously [unceremoniously] kicked into the water, by such a person, to the no small discomfiture of their owner. Mr. Hannah's pond at Clough-house Mill is the only bathing resort that now remains to be spoken of. This pond is very much frequented, especially by young per- [persons] sons, and its water is comparatively clean when undis- [Indies- undisturbed] turbed, [turned] but no sooner do the lads dive and plunge about in it than a thick layer of sediment (hitherto lying tranquilly at the bottom, and such as may be seen in any mill-dam, and known in the parlanee [plane] of the bathers as sludge, rises to the surface, offending the sight, and sometimes the taste, of him who has pre- [presumed] sumed [sued] to thrust his feet into it. The unsuitableness [unsuitable] of the pond for bathing in is not the only objection to its use. The persons having land in the vicinity of it are particularly anxious that bathing in it should be puta [put] stop to. While there, a weck [week] or two ago, person owning land thus situated, told me that the damage done to his crops and fences was considerable and even during that conversation, (happening to turn our heads in acontrary [contrary] direction to the one we had been standing in) we descried half a dozen young men walking straight across a field of oats, with no other view than to make their route to the pond rather shorter. This grass crop, he said, had been trodden down too in a similar manner by them. Having dwelt upou [upon] the value of the bath, and the great want of bath accommodation in Huddersfield, I will, with your permission, say a few words in reply to the suggestion of A Lover of Health and Exercise, for supplying the deficiency. He asks the railway com- [company] pany [any] to allow the canal to be used for bathing in, within a givey [give] time, and within given limits; and I must con- [confess] fess, at the outset, that if his other requirements of health range no higher than this, he will stand a good chance of having them fulfilled, and if hig [hi] conceptions of what are the essentials to health be correct, he will not, I think, be a victim to disappointed love, as regards this earthly blessing, whatever other calamity may befal [Beal] i But, as I don't believe that abluticn [obliging] in water, scented by the effluvia from decayed animal matter, is that which is conducive to health, I look upon its use as more a thing of necessity-and I never walk up the canal side to the place where your correspondent goes to, about two miles in the country, to embrace its waters, without FEELING the necessity for a better place in the town. Supposing the canal water was as pure as our own sweet Longwood, and that the railway com- [company] pany [any] were willing to grant the request of A Lover, &c. (though Iam [I am] sure they never will), who on earth would be at the expense of main taining [training] the body of police that would be required to enforce the regulations as to time and limits, if it were once permitted - Lord Ivory, was conducted on the part le and sometimes the only route,-and yi, going to work, and returning from jt; .. suggested, that to open it a positive violation of common decen,- [dozen,- dozen] A public bath is required, and a public Beart [Bart] personal cleanliness of our indus artizans.
