3 THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, AUGUST 3, 1850. THE WESLEYAN CONFERENCE. On Wednesday morning the Conference commenced their in the Chapel, City Road. At nine o'clock the -President, the Rev. Thomas Jackson, commenced the services by giving out the 712th hymn and Dr. Hannah, 'the Secretary, read the 17th chapter of St. John. ELECTION OF imi [mi] business been gone through, the Conference then proceeded to vote for the president for the ensuing year and after considerable delay, and it being now long after twelve o'clock, the President announced the namber [number] of votes as follows - Joseph Fowler. Dr. Hannah.... Mr. Naylor .... Dr. Beaumont. serene Dr. Beecham was accordingly declared duly elected as President for the ensuing year; and the usual prayer- [prayer meeting] meeting was then held. The congregation that assembled might amount to some eight or nine hundred, exclusive of the preachers. ELECTION OF THE SECRETARY. After the prayer-meeting, at twelve o'clock, the Con- [Conference] ference [France] re-assembled at three, when Dr. Ha was elected Secretary by 195 votes. Dr. Newton had 67 votes given to him for that office, and Mr. Fowler 60. Thanks were voted to Mr. Jackson for his conduct during the presidential year, which knowledged. [knowledge] At J evening sitting thanks were voted to Br. Hannah for his conduct during the year as secretary. imilar [similar] votes 'were awarded to the assistant secretaries, the Revs. I. Keeling and John Farrar. RELIGIOUS EDUCATION. hich [which] referred . M'OWAN [M'OWN] moved the resolution, which refe [free] eaten of the opposition to Mr. Fox's bill for a secular education, and approved of the opposition made Mtr. [Mr] CHADWICK, of York, seconded the resolution. He expressed a hope that they would proceed in the noble course in which they had set out. He spoke of the im- [in- importance] portance [importance] of rendering education truly religious. In York- [Yorkshire] shire and Lincolnshire, he was happy to say, proofs had been given that it was not impracticable to introduce reli- [deli- religious] gious [pious] schools into the agricultural parts of the country. The resolution was unanimously adopted. The Rev. Jonn Scott then made some statements. He said that at the last Manchester Conference it was reported to the cofnmittee [committee] that four school-rooms, about the size of that in which they were assembled, would be needful. The friends now saw them. There was one for infants; one for boys a third, an industrial school, for girls and a fourth, a school for the superior scholars. He then entered into many details about the arrangement of the rooms. He showed that, while we were building, it would have been penny wise and pound foolish if we had not made provision for 100, instead of 60 students. Theallow- [The allow- The allowance] ance [once] which the government makes for an establishment of the latter capacity is 5,000 Nobody should charge the society with extravagance. He then entered ona [on] state- [statement] ment [men] of the finances, and showed that the cost of the erec- [ere- erection] tion [ion] of the buildings would be somewhat greater than was esti [est] It was found necessary to go deeper than was expected. This, with a loss from the sale of the old mate- [materials] rials, not equalling what was calculated, would make us worse than the estimate by about 1,000. Various other things which were not calculated upon had also exceeded the first estimate by perhaps 2, more so that we should need from the friends 3,000 more than was antici- [anti- anticipated] pated. [pate] He hoped we should be able to claim of the Go- [Government] ernment [ornament] the 7,000 they had promised us. But, in order to do this, we must be in a position to say that, by means of our own efforts, and this grant from Government, we should be able to pay off the whole expense of the building. He hoped that something would be done that evening to make a beginning towards raising the 3,000 additional. Mr. M.P., put many enquiries to Mr. Scott about the finances, and then pr ed to say that the first sentiment which struck his ear on entering their new premises was very grateful to him-namely, that the meeting approved of the opposition made to Mr. Fox's bill. He then proceeded to say that many threatening indica- [India- indications] tions [tins] were visible in the future. There were many con- [conflicting] flicting [inflicting] elements at work, and the nation itself would pro- [probably] bably [ably] feel itself called upon to take a decided part before a twelvemonth had elapsed. He gave an account of Lord John Russell's reading, in the House of Commons, of part of the Wesleyan petition in opposition to the bili [bill] for secu- [sec- secular] lar [la] education, and said, his lordship had laid great stress upon that document. He then turned to the present state of the connexion, and related that some important per- [personage] sonage [song] from among the constituency of the West Riding of Yorkshire had said to him, I hope you Wesleyan Methodists will be true to your principles, understanding thereby, as he seemed to mean, an unbending opposition to reform (much cheering). He said that the attention of the whole publie [public] was more and more directed toward us asa people. But the inference he seemed inclined to draw was, that no surrender, no adjustment, no conciliation, was to be contemplated. He concluded by promising 500 toward the 3,000 additional expense, provided the Metho- [Method- Methodist] dist Connexion would, before the end of next March, engage to supply 10,000. Mr. Kay felt that they owed a great debt of gratitude for this continued care. He alluded to the efforts of the Rev. Samuel Jackson, in relation to the present movement, and said that their chief success, under God, must now greatly depend upon the efforts of the ministers to promote it. In order that other speakers might have the oppor- [upper- opportunity] tunity [unity] of addressing the meeting, he would abridge those observations. He concluded by saying, 'I will give 250 at present, but if Mr. Heald says I must give more I will do so. (Cheers.) He then moved the third resolution, which referred to the appointment of the principal of the normal school, It described the qualification which should distinguish him, but it did not name any individual. Mr. GARLAND seconded the resolution. The resolution having been unanimously adopted, The Rev. CHARLES PREST moved the fourth resolution, to the following effect That this meeting recognises the solemn and imperative duty of religiously educating the young as at all times binding on the Christian Church, but now more especially urged upon the Wesleyan Connexior, [Connexion] by the growth of juvenile depravity in the country the felt want of an education that shall be productive of moral im- [in- improvement] rovement [movement] and the general concurrence of opinion in vour [our] of an education administered by the religious bodies ef the nation. And also recommends the establishment of said day-schools on a much larger scale than heretofore, as imperatively called for by present circumstances, r. WILLIAM SMITH seconded the resolution, which was carried unanimously. THE ACCOUNTS OF THE FINANCE COMMITTEE. The report of the auditors having been received by the Committee of Review, Mr. HEatp, [Heat] M.P., moved 'That this meeting has re- [received] ceived, [received] with great satisfaction, the report of the auditors, fully approves of the mode in which the audit has been con- [conducted] ducted, as well as rejoices that its confidence in the in- [integrity] 'tegrity [integrity] of the executive of the Wesleyan Methodist Mis- [Is- Missionary] sionary [missionary] Society is both justified and confirmed by it, and feels called upon to renew its pledges of fidelity to the great work which Almighty God has intrusted [instructed] to the Wesleyan Methodist Connexion in this important department of its labours. Mr. Heald then retired, amidst loud cheering, after heartily shaking hands with the president, and, in his person, with all the members of the committee, Mr. SMITH seconded the rdsolution. [resolution] Mr. Brook, of Liverpool, briefly supported the resolu- [resolute- resolution] 'tion. [ion] Mr. JoHN [John] W. GaBRIEL [Gabriel] then rose and said,-It was clear, that, whilst the interity [integrity] of the balance-sheet might be maintained, yet there were items in that balance- [balance sheet] sheet that led to other considerations; for instance, the charge, for interest being a sum of 2,822, must be paid for large amounts of money on loan. Hehad [Head] taken great pai [pair] to learn the facts accurately had written to Mr. Hoole, requesting an interview, but had been partly referred to the treasurers and auditors. He went to one of the audi- [aid- auditors] tors, who received him as he was sure to do, as a Christian and a gentleman, but being unable to answer the queries, asked for them in writing, and promised his best attention tothem. [them] He had sent the queries, and, although he was sure the auditor had done his best, still many queries were returned, Cant say. He wrote then to Mr. Farmer, 'who Said he would do his best against the meeting, but up to that time he had not received the desired information. Under these circumstances he had done what he could to supply the facts, and he gave them, subject to their being, probably, inaccurate, but most likely under, rather than over. Ifhis [If his] calculations were right, they had from the Theological Institution 10,000 Fund for Widows and Orphans of 44,000 besides funded property to the amount of 26,000. Now, supposing that the months of June, July, August, Septem- [Sept- September] ber, [be] and October were so deficient in their receipts, that the expenditure far exceeded the income, it would be necessary to borrow, but in November they would be equal; in December the would preponderate; and in January and February they would be so heavy as to enable the treasurers to pay off the loans, excepting the debts &e.; and on the 28th of February they ought to have a large sum in hand. The Rev. J. Scot rose and said, that Mr. Gabriel over- [overlooked] looked the payments for January and February. Mr. GABRIEL was obliged to Mr. Scott for the ren [en] ark, as it enabled him to say that he could not understand how these two months, mit. [it] proper management, could have any serious expenditure legitimately belonging to 1850, Say they owed 44,000 There would then be a deduction of the DODE [DOSE G00 [G] 10,000 -And loansowing [allowing] by foreign chapels, say perty. [petty] Now one of his queries went to ascertain this fact and it must be remembered that the sum of 2,822 for interest, at four per cent, would pay for 70,000 for the whole of twelve months. 'The missionary stations provided a considerable amount themselves; for Tey had ey had in grants from the government.. 5,901 They raised in contributions 8 Aide ahd [had] total of expenditure in these stations gross to expen [expense] in these stations was 88,745, from which deduct their own provision of 21,969, and the result would be 66,776, or about 5,500 per Foonth [Foo nth] but as the drafts for 1850 ought not to begin re the year, and as bills drawn on the stations would take to this or four weeks for their sale and transmis- [transmission- transmission] on Or moses [Moses] tty [try and would then be at thirty days after sight wun [win Was certain that they could not be matured on ees [see] if properly the payments year t not to be great until h or would not be matured until whilst the the great gave to the system of book keeping in the establishment he could not concur. The system might or might not be good but certainly, as he saw it, no great praise ought to be given to it but he was unwilling to go farther, and would, therefore, withhold. (Cries of Name, name. . ute PRESIDENT Say all you have to say, Mr. Gabriel. ear. Mr. a Well, as they were one family, and they required it to be told, he would tell them that the invoices for two whole years-1848 [years-W] and 1849-were [W-were] not entered in any ledger, nor even put upon the invoice-book a poor plan, indeed, in his estimation, at the best but such as Ae is, they had not even kept up to their own system. He thought also it was very desirable that the secretaries should not remain in office for an indefinite period. The Prestpent [Present] here rose, and said,-The present was neither the time nor place to discuss such a subject. If Mr. Gabriel had anything to propose by way of amendment to the resolution, he could do so. . . Mr. GABRIEL concluded by moving the following series of resolutions, by way of rider to the original motion - that the Conference be requested to take into their early consideration the following suggestions in refer- [reference] ence [once] to the missions -Ist. -Its] That the balance-sheet exhibit in future the total amount of receipts and expenditure from the districts. 2nd. That it is desirable to lessen very mate- [materially] rially [really] the cost of deputations. 3rd. That. the amount of monies on interest in the mission establishment appears to be unnecessarily large, and, consequently, too costly for its interest. 4th. That a stricter economy is much required throughout the establishment. 5th. That all the account- [account books] books should be opened at reasonable times for the inspec- [inspector- inspection] tion [ion] of any district or branch missionary officer. 6th. That the expenditure of the mission stations should be classified and expressed as to schools, missions, and travelling preachers. 7th. That appendices, giving the details of the annual appropriation of 1,500 for the training-fund of native agency, &c., the amount of funded property, the cash on loan, and cash lent on chapels, should be printed with every report. 8th. That it is extremely desirable that more frequent changes of the three junior secretaries should take place; that one should retire this year, a second three years hence, and the third six years hence; and that none should be kept in office for a longer period than nine years ; that more frequent changes in the sixteen London laymen is also very important, and that an election of the same, eithor [either] by the London District Missionary Meeting, or the London Quarterly Meeting, with a nomination or veto in the President, would be attended with great advantage. Mr. T. A. TaGG [Tag] seconded the amendment. After much warmth of discussion, in the course of which Mr. Gabriel was entreated to withdraw his amendment, bug to do so, e PRESIDENT put the original proposition (omittin [committing] all mention of the amendment which he to be carried unanimously. The Rev. E. HooLe [Hole] then read the Treasurer's Report, from which it appeared that the income for the year ending 30th July, 1850. was 22,808 14s. 5d., and the expendi- [expend- expenditure] ture, [true] 51,428 8s. 3d. Votes of thanks to the treasurers and secretaries were severally passed and acknowledged, and the doxology having been sung, the proceedings closed at three o'clock. STATIONS OF PREACHERS.

THE Fyitpe.-Crops [Fit.-Crops] of all descriptions continue to look remarkably well throughout the whole of the Fylde district, and both wheat and oats are feeding very fast. Should the weather prove favourable we may ex- pect [pet] a heavy crop. Beans are also likely for being well grown, the weather being favourable for increasing their growth. Field potatoes and those grown upon the moss are sound, and in a healthy state; some forward ones are diseased, and those affected have within the last few days gone very rapidly, so that a large quantity have been got up and sent without delay to the market.- [market] Preston Guardian. LANARKSHIRE.-After the extreme elevation of tem- [te- temperature] perature [premature] and consequent drought which has prevailed for a considerable time past, and which was beginning to parch the pasture land, and even to injure the grow- [growing] ing crops, we have had a succession of copious and most beneficial showers, under the genial influences of which the growing grain of all kinds has been making rapid advances towards maturity. We have seldom seen the fields manifesting such symptoms of abundant produce. The wheat especially appears more than ordinarily luxuriant, and, in many places in our vicinity, is already assuming the golden livery of autumn. Barley and oats present fully an average appearance while the potato, to which rumour is ascribing symptoms of failure in Ireland and the West Highlands, is, in our neighbour- [neighbourhood] hood, as leafy and vigorous as if such a thing as the aphis phis] vastator [testator had never been dreamed of.-Glasgow Citizen. TRELAND.-We [IRELAND.-We] rejoice to say that the intelligence which reached us this day, from our own correspondents as well as the provincial journals, is calculated to allay apprehensions for the safety of the potato crop. From all parts of the country-even those districts in the south, where the disease had been described as general and virulent-we are now assured that the tubers are quite sound-that the unfavourable symptoms on the stalks, which had caused so much apprehension, are dis- [disappearing] appearing in some places altogether. Judging from the statements before us, it may be doubted whether the disease of former years has yet actually re-appeared, unless in so mitigated a form that no serious loss need be apprehended.- [apprehended] Dublin Evening Post of Saturday. The Lincolnshire Chronicle says Wheat, beans, oats, and barley, are all looking well, and the present weather is most favourable for an abundant yield of all kinds of grain. There have been one or two rumours of a re-appearance of the potato disease, which we hope are exaggerations. A considerable quantity of vegetables have been exported from Wisbech for the north of Eng- [England] land and Yorkshire. We regret to learn that mildew is making sad havoc with the wheat crop around Stam- [Steam- Stamford] ford. SF AN ENTERPRISING VOYAGER.-The following is from a letter dated Chagres, [Charges] June 27, 1850 -B. Butler, from the State of Wisconsin, 2,500 miles above New Orleans, built a boat of five tons, carted it forty miles to the river, and with three companions started with this craft for California. Their intention was to cross by Nicaragua, go by the lake, and, with wheels to the boat, take her overland to the Pacific, launch her afresh, and go on to San Franciscc. [Francis] They had never seen salt water before, and with an old chart and compass off they went, reaching Cuba first; where they were seized as pirates, and detained thirty days. Two of the four left here, and then the other two started, coasting it all along Cape Caroche [Roche] to St. Juan. When they arrived at that place, they found it impossible to get the boat up the Nicaragua River, and they then brought her to Sold her for a good price, and started back for their own country, to build a more suitable craft but unfortunately they were capsized in the Ame- [Me- American] rican barque and lost all, There was about 30,000 dollars on board ofher. [other] Thus ended the romance of the Yankee, whose perseverance certainly deserved a better fate. MELANCHOLY AccIDENT [Accident] AnD [And] Loss oF Lire.-A lament- [lamentable] able accident occured [occurred] near Weymouth, on Thursday, to Mr. and Mrs. James Tasker (of London), who with their little girl, had been on a visit to a relative at Wareham. They came over to Weymouth on Wednesday and remained the night, and on Thursday were returning to Wareham in a four-wheel chaise, when, in descending the hill into the village of Osmington, our las the my became unmanagable [unmanageable] and ran violently.against a stone Pail, by which all three were thrown out of the chaise. Mr. James Tasker was killed on the spot, Mrs. Tasker and the child had each an arm broken. e body of Mr. Tas- [As- Tasker] ker [er] was removed to the Plough publit-house, [public-house] at a short distance from the spot. Mrs. Tasker and the child were brought into Weymouth, and not made acquainted with his death, fearing what may be the result. RICHMOND AND BusHEY [Bushey] Parks.-A return has been issued of the repairs or additions to the residences of official persons occupying houses in Richmond and Bushey Parks for the five years ending the 3lst [last] of December, 1849. The sums annually expended on worksin [work sin] Richmond-park in this pened [opened] have from 1,176. 19s. 8d. (1848-9) [W-9] to 3,575 . 8s. 4d. (1847-8). [W-8] The amount for last year was 2,569 10s. 10d. The annual expenditure in Hampton-court and Bushey Parks has been from 1,153 10s. (1846.7) [W.7] to (1848-9), [W-9] and for the year last expired was 1,428 lés. [ls] 4d. DISTRICT NEWS.

' SEconD [Second] West York YEomanry [Yeomanry] Civatry.-This [Lavatory.-This] gal- [gallant] lant [lane] corps, under the command q Colonel Pollard, mustered on Wednesday morning, fr the eight days' permanent duty, at Harrogate. Bot horses and men appeared remarkably well, and thé [the] soldier-like de- [demeanour] meanour [manor] of the latter gave the liellirect elect to part of Mr. H. Berkeley's observations in the House of Com- [Commons] mons, on the 26th instant. The Bradford troop joined near Calverley-bar, the Huddersfield oneat [ont] Leeds, where they arrived at eleven o'clock. After breakfasting at the various hotels they assembled in Briggate, at half- [half pas] pas twelve o'clock, to resume the march. INQUEST BEFORE C. GLEADALL, Esq., Drruty [Duty] CoRONER. [Coroner] -On Monday evening last an inquest was held at the house of Mr. William Crowther, the Oddfellows' Hall, to enquire into the circumstances attending the death of a married woman named Saunders, rmsiding [residing] in Cavalry Field, who had been confined the previous day, and had had as her medical attendant a person named Fawthrop, who practises without any qualification what- [whatever] ever, except that his charge is 7s. 6d. whilst 1 regular surgeon charges half-a-guinea. It was clearly proved, from the evidence given, that great neglect aid much want of skill was chargeable upon Mr. Fawthrop, he having left the woman (though undelivered) fa two or three hours at a time, and stupidly hesitatel, [hesitate] or de- [declined] clined, [lined] calling in another and a proper m [in] man until it was too late. The jury were loud in their con- [condemnation] demnation [denomination] of his conduct, and severely censured him in their verdict. The deputy-coroner gave hima [him] just yet pointed reprimand, and told him he had narrowly escaped being committed to York for manslaughter. HONLEY. You Don'r SLEEP HERE TO NIGHT. -George Edward Slater Rollinson, was summoned before J. Brock and J. Starkey, Esqrs., [Esquires] at the Guildball, [Guildhall] Huddersfeld, [Huddersfield] on Saturday last, to answer the complaint of Edward Batty, his father-in-law. On the previous Monday night young master Rollinson, appeared at his father's door and asked for a night's lodgings. The favour was refused, and the defendant went away. Shortly afterwards he again returned and was still more importunate but with no better results. Determined either to have lodg- [lodge- lodgings] ings or revenge-he came a third time between two and three but still was not permitted to take up his night's abode be then began to destroy the windows and continued doing so until a neighbour came and persuaded him to go away. The defendant in order to exculpate himself, pleaded that the reason for his being so im- [in- importunate] portunate [fortunate] to sleep at Mr. Batty's house was because his wife was living there, and where his wife was he thought he had aright to be also. The magistrates thinking otherwise, inflicted a penalty of 3s. 6d. with expenses 17s., and in default committed him for 14 days to the House of Correction. Wirs [Sirs] v. Huspanp.-Master [Husband.-Master] George Edward Slater Rollinson was again placed in the dock, and charged by his wife, a poor sickly weak looking woman, with ill- [ill treating] treating her and keeping her continually in bodily fear. He had at different times threatened her life. The de- [defendant] fendant [defendant] treated the matter very cavalierly, acknowledging that he had employed such treats, But why because his wife would not live with him. Ifshe [Fisher] would him in a home of their own he was prepared to take the severest lash of the law, if he did not do to her as a man ought to do. The bench thought she had tried him too long already, and required him to give sureties himself in 10, and two in 5 each, for his good behaviour in future, and in default to be committed for four months to the House of Correction. ConvIcTION [Conviction] UNDER THE GaME [Game] Act.-On Tuesday last, at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, before J. Armitage and J. Starkey, Esqrs., [Esquires] John Collins and William Boothroyd, were charged with having, on the 9th of July, in the township of Honley, in the day time, trespassed on the property of Mr. Isaac Beardsell, in search of conies. [cones] Mr. Beardsell said it was the first time he had known the defendants to commit a trespass on his property, and, as they admitted the offence, he did not wish to press the charge. Fined 1s. each and expenses. OF ASSAULT AND BREAKING Winpows.-At [Windows.-At] the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Tuesday last, a charge was preferred against John Weevil, for having, on the 29th of July, unlawfully and maliciously broken the windows, window blinds, and shutters, belonging to Mr. Thomas Brook, merchant, of Honley, value 10s. Mr. Brook's son appeared to prosecute, and saidsthat [saddest] this was not the first time they had had their property wan- [wantonly] tonly [only] destroyed. About three weeks previous some windows were broken, which they attributed to a drunken man however, on Saturday night some more were broken, and they then began to be suspicious that it was done intentionally. On Tuesday morning about four o'clock they heard some one again, and immediately witness got up, but the party had gone. However, there were some foot-prints, and having suspicions against Weevill, [Will] he went to his father's house,and learnt subse- [subs- subsequently] quently [frequently] that the defendant had not been at home dur- [Du- during] ing the night. On comparing his shoes with the foot- [footprints] prints they perfectly agreed. The prisoner, who was either really insane, or made believe that he was, pleaded that Mr. Brook held 12,000 of his property, and so he thought himself at liberty to break a few win- [windows] dows. [does] Fined 10s., and in default committed to Wake- [Wakefield] field for two months. LINDLEY. Picron [Picton] SrEatinc.-Asa [Satanic.-Asa] Nicholls, of Lindley, was charged at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Tuesday last, with stealing a pigeon belonging to John Calverley. Our readers will remember an assault arising out of this case a short time ago, in which Nicholls' wife appeared as complainant. This was the return charge, and was treated accordingly by being discharged. KIRKBURTON. Serious CHarcE [Chance] or the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Tuesday last, before J. Starkey and J. Armitage, Esqrs., [Esquires] Ann Kay appeared to charge John Scaife, a great powerful looking man, with committing upon her a gross and violent assault from which she suffered several days. A quarrel had arisen between the parties respecting the cleansing of an outhouse, and. in consequence of Kay's refusal to take her turn, Scaife had taken the law into his own hands and in- [inflicted] ficted [fitted] severe summary punishment upon the complainant. The offence was committed on the 22nd ult.-A similar charge was brought by the husband, Miles Kay, for an assault on the same occasion. Scaife had used most brutal language, and conducted himself with great vio- [vi- violence] lence. [Lance] Fined 5s. for each assault, together with ex- [expenses] penses, [senses] 1 16s. Goop the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Saturday last, Samuel Buckley and Samuel North, were charged by John Haigh, with damaging some grass in his possession, on the previous Monday. John had found the two Samuels trespassing unlawfully upon his domains, and notwithstanding his request to the con- [contrary] trary, [Tracy] they expressed their determination to go for- [forward] ward in spite of him. This was more than his dignity could bear, and accordingly he was determined to have the law upon them. The two Samuels acknowledged having taken their Sunday promenade through neighbour Buckley's grounds, but were ignorant of hay- [haying] ing committed any offence, as their friend frequently took the liberty of admiring their possessions. Dis- [Discharged] charged on payment of expenses. SCAMMONDEN. ose one] Furious Drivinec.- [Driving.- Driving] The Scammonden constable, Henry Wadsworth, appeared at the Guildhall, Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field, on Saturday last, to lay a charge against William and David Smithies, for, on Sunday, the 14th ult., having driven two waggons furiously through the village of Scammonden. The father appeared for the defendants, The party had been honouring Mr. Feargus [Argus] O'Connor with their company at Blackstone Edge, and had become so elated with the speeches they had heard and the beer they had soaped, as to become ambitious for the astonishment of their country neighbours. The charge was neither a very serious, nor a very clear one, and 50 David was fined 1s. and costs, and William ordered to pay expenses. YEW GREEN. A Batirr [Battery] my Dirricutties.-At [Directors.-At] the Guildhall, Hud- [HUD- Huddersfield] dersfield, [Huddersfield] on Saturday last, the following case, in which Harriet Linton appeared as complainant, and John Ardon [Ardron] as defendant, was heard before the sitting magistrates. Harriet Linton is in the occupation of a house at Yew Green, belonging to Mr. W. Charlesworth, and being in arrears for rent, a distress warrant was issued and entrusted to the care of Mr. John Ardon, [Ardron] a duly accredited legal functionary, upon whose shoulders then rested the unpleasant duty of marking the complainant's household goods, chattels, and effects. John, though long versed in the mysteries of his profes- [profess- profession] sion, was no scholar, and, therefore, was accompanied by his son in the capacity of clerk -bailiff's clerk, that is. Off they trudged on Saturday morning, the 20th ult., with bouyant [buoyant] spirits, and arrived at their destina- [destiny- destination] tion [ion] between eleven and twelve o'clock. They had not a warm and welcome greeting, and John's good mor- [or- morrow] row was returned with no pleasant recognition of his acquaintance. Nothing daunted, however, the good functionary was at ease and happy in the contemplation of their being sufficient to meet all demands. In due time, Mrs. Linton was informed of their errand, John asked her, If she had 2 17s. for him. The young aspirant for his father's honours was ordered to commence, and with the greatest coolness he drew forth his note-book, and began-but whilst measuring the length, breadth, and thickness of a particular chair, he found the rude hands of Mrs. Linton on his shoulders; nor did he recover from his surprise, until he found himself prostrate and crest-fallen before her doorway. The father's feelings yearned towards his son, and he could not bear that even a woman should take so great a liberty. He vowed vengeance, but, in the moment of its execution, he shrunk from Amazonian competitor, in whose hands gleamed the bright steel of her best carving knive. [knives] He thought again-his son's humiliation flashed across his mind- [mind he] he and rushed heroically on his antagonist-they closed he seized her by the throat, and with an Herculean grasp, claimed the victory. Long Mrs. Linton could not eat, but her tongue still remained to speak her wrongs, and she came to claim her rights. Mr. J. I. Freeman appeared for the defendant. The magistrates consider- [considering] ing the assault proved, fined Mr. John Ardon, [Ardron] bailiff, 2s. 6d. and expenses 9s. 6d. SIsTERLY [Sister] AFFECTION aND [and] Scanpau.-Mary [Scamp.-Mary] Ann Gledhill, of Yew Green, was charged at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Saturday last, with having poised her sister, Sophia Stringer, by hitting her a slap over the face. Sophia had visited Mary, and Mary had told Sophia a secret about Betty Linton. Sophia, of course, woman like, went immediately to Betty, and un- [unburdened] burthened [burned] her mind of the secret. Betty was indig- [India- indignant] nant, [nan] and in a tantarum [tantrum] set off to see Mary Ann, taking Sophia to substantiate the calumny and then began the war of words, avowals, and denials, followed in rapid succession speedily with words came deeds, and first and foremost Mary nerved her courage for the conflict, and smote with her good right arm, the originator of their unpleasantness. Sophia winced again under the blow, and only-found vent for her feelings in a sum- [summons] mons. Mrs. Gledhill was allowed a week to pay expenses. BARNSLEY. WonverFut [Wonderful] Escarr.-aAs [Scare.-as] four men were descending the shafts of Messrs. Charlesworth's colliery, Higham, near Barnsley, they were buried by a fall of earth and stones. They were in the act of descending, when a mass of earth gave way, and fell upon them and the corve [core] in which they were standing. The men at the bottom of the pit could not imagine what was the matter. They, however, let them down along with the rubbish to the bottom of the pit, when means were taken to entricate [intricate] them from their perilous situation. They were fortunately near the place from whence it fell, or, had they been much lower, it would doubtless have been a dreadful catastrophe. However, none of them sustained much injury. About a fortnight ago, at the same colliery, the conductors broke, and the corve [core] and appendages were precipitated with such vio- [vi- violence] lence [Lance] to the bottom, that they sunk considerably beneath the surface from the concussion, at which also the workmen miraculously escaped uninjured. Weavers' Turn-ovt.-The [Turn-out.-The] strike against Messrs. Pigott and Newton, which took place shortly after Richardson's weavers had turned in, still continues; and there is at present little prospect of that firm and their weavers coming to any amicable arrangements. The weavers, on their part, are apparently determined to stay out until the grievance of which they complain shall be redressed. They are amply supported in their efforts to obtain a fair day's wages for a fair day's work, by the weekly contributions of the hand and power- [power loom] loom weavers, who are still in employment. On Satur- [Star- Saturday] day last, about 25 was collected towards their mainte- [maintain- maintenance] nance. From a circular which has just emanated from the press, it appears that a list of lengths and prices was adopted by the manufacturers, in 1846, according to which drabbets [rabbits] and ticks were to measure, respec- [respect- respectively] tively, [lively] fifty-two and forty-eight yards. All fabrics, it states, manufactured by Pigott and Newton, have been, on an average, six yards longer per bunt than the list specified. The weavers remonstrated repeatedly about this injustice, and requested that their bunts should be measured. As they found that they could not prevail upon this firm to adhere to the rules, by individual complaints, they had no alternative but striking generally against the firm. As the manufac- [manufacture- manufacturers] turers [turners] conform, generally, to the lists of 1846, the weavers feel justified in turning out against Messrs. Pigott and Newton. On Friday last, a portion of the road which connects the villages of Worsbro' [Worse] and Worsbro' [Worse] Dale, and some of the adjoining ground, suddenly sank a distance of four feet, and the walls at each side of the road fell down. This accident arose, it is believed, in consequence of the coal having been excavated from beneath. It is fortunate no houses were near, or they might have been thrown into a dilapidated state. RosBERY.-The [Robbery.-The] counting-house attached to the Dar- [Dr- Dreaming] leymain [Ainley] colliery was forcibly entered by some thieves, on Friday evening, the 26th ult. The following day being the miners' fortnightly pay-day, they probably anti- [anticipated] cipated [anticipated] meeting with a good booty; but fortunately there had not been much money left, and, after break- [breaking] ing open the desks and drawers, they were obliged to decamp with a booty of nine shillings. ANOTHER RosBERY.-A [Robbery.-A] respectable individual named William Wike was audaciously robbed, about half-past nine o'clock, on Sunday evening last, by a female of a disreputable character, named Catherine Horbury, who was inebriated. Mr. Wike having been to see his sister, was proceeding quietly home, when, on going through a passage near the Red Lion Inn, the above female rushed out of a house, sciecd [science] him round the neck, and asked him to pay for a quart of ale. He, however, repulsively extricated himself from her em- [embrace] brace, and was proceeding homewards, when he ex- [examined] amined [mined] his waistcoat pockets, and found that during the scuffle she had dived into them, and extracted a half-crown. He went and charged her with the robbery, and threatened to give her into custody unless she immediately restored it. She strenuously denied the charge, but after an uproar had been created, and a concourse of people assembled, her protector made his appearance, and gave up the money. TEMPERANCE.-The temperance society is reviving in this town. The committee have recently taken the Wesleyan Association school-room, and have engaged the services of Mr. David Beale, to give the first course of lectures. MetHopist [Methodist] New Connexton.-This [Connexion.-This] society has taken the association chapel, at Monk Bretton, and intend to open it in a short time for divine worship. WESLEYAN AssociaTION [Association] CHAPEL, MaPpPLEWELL.-On [Popplewell.-On] Sunday last, Mr. Clayton, from Wakefield, an expelled local preacher, delivered two discourses in this chapel to overflowing congregations. A collection was made, at the close of each service, in aid of the Sunday-school, when 3 9s. was obtained. AccIDENT [Accident] FroM [From] a Horse.-On Sunday morning last, an accident of a serious nature occurred to a young man named Umpleby, who resides near Worsbro' [Worse] Dale. It appears the young man was exercising a horse, from which he was thrown, and the concussion he received from the fall was so violent that he was for some time rendered insensible. A young man named Charles Burland, who witnessed the accident, repaired imme- [Mme- immediately] diately [lately] to the spot, when he found the young man to all appearance dying. He immediately procured assist- [assistance] ance, [once] and carried him to a house which was near at hand, which proved to be his residence. Medical aid was promptly in attendance, and after a short time had elapsed, he began to show signs of sensibility. He still lies in a very precarious state, but hopes are eftertained [entertained] of his recovery. AssavLt.-Mr, [Assault.-Mr] William Rourk, [Rock] landlord of the Ship Inn, charged John Cook, on Wednesday last, at the Court- [Courthouse] house, with having, on the previous Sunday evening, assaulted him without any sufficient provocation. From evidence, pro. and con., it appeared that the assault had been committed under vindictive feelings. A quar- [quay- quarrel] rel took place at the Ship Inn, on Saturday evening, in which defendant was an actor, and not feeling satisfied with the conduct of Mr. Rourk, [Rock] he watched his oppor- [upper- opportunity] tunity [unity] for an assault. The landlord was standing at his door, on the evening in question, when the defendant mn past and struck him violently over the eye. On corroboration of the above evidence, which was deemed conclusive, he was fined 10s., and 1 1s. 6d. expenses. LANCASHIRE AND YORKSHIRE William Dyson was charged, at the Court-house, on Wednesday, B B&nry [B&try] Crief, [Chief] station-master at Darton, with trespass- [trespass] on the above line, on the 28th ult. On the offence being proved in evidence, he was fined 5s., and ex- [expenses] penses, [senses] anmounting [amounting] to 1 2s. DARTON. The ancient and rural village of Darton, during the early part of last week, presented an animated ap- [appearance] pearance, [appearance] and was the scene of unsual [usual] festivities. This annual festival, which is termed the feast, is a celebration of the opening of the parish church, which was erected early in the 15th century. Owing to Dar- [Dr- Darton] ton having been recently connected with Barnsley and Wakefield, by means of a branch of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway, many hundreds of individuals availed themselves of an excursion to this pleasant village on Sunday last and the two following days. A special train departed from Barnsley to Darton, at half-past one o'clock on Sunday afternoon, which was excessively crowded, both in the interior and at the top of 'the car- [carriages] riages, [carriages] and many could not find accommodation. The village of Darton is situated in a narrow, yet beautiful vale. The church steeple may be observed at a considerable distance from the surrounding hills, tow- [towering] ering [ring] prominently above some ancient trees which adorn the burial ground. The church is a handsome edifice, erected in the gothic [Gothic] style of architecture, and isa noble specimen of our old English churches, How beautiful they stand, Those ancient altars of our native land, Amid the pasture fields and dark green woods; Amid the mountain clouds and solitudes [solitude] , By rivers dear, that run into the sea ; By little brooks that with a lisping sound, Like playful children run by copse and lea Each in its little plot of holy ground.

On Saturday last, at the Guildhall, before Joseph Brook and Joseph Starkey, Esqrs. [Esquires] Mr. C. S. Floyd ap- [appeared] peared [pared] as solicitor to the Huddersfield and Holmfirth Manufacturers' Protective Association, to prosecute under the Worsted Act, Charles Balmforth, of Slaith- [Snaith- Slaithwaite] waite, [wait] for having in his possession a quantity of woollen waste and shoddy, for which he could not properly account. Mr. J. 1. Freeman defended. After the case for the prosecution had closed, Mr. Freeman applied for an adjournment to produce two witnesses, Mr, Buck- [Buckley] ley and Mr. Bottomley, to prove that his client had been in the habit of purchasing and manufacturing woollen waste, for some time. The adjournment was strongly opposed by Mr. Floyd as most irregular, and injurious to the prosecution. It was agreed, however, to let the case stand over till Saturday next (this day.) The cir- [circumstances] cumstances [cum stances] will be detailed in the following evidence - Henry Wadsworth, constable, Scammonden, was called and examined by Mr. Floyd, and said, that between one and two o'clock on the previous Monday morning, he saw a person of the name of Thomas Gee, with a full sack on his back, carried by two straps. Witness fol- [followed] lowed him. He knew that Gee had been convicted in that court for embezzlement. He followed him above a mile up by Copley hills. Gee then went intoa [into] close occu- [occur- occupied] pied by Balmforth, and he (witness) went round and got behind a wall. Gee made a noise against the house wall by rubbing with a stone, and Balmforth came down to him, and they began totalk. [total] It was then about three o'clock. Gee removed the bundle from under the window into the house, and Balmforth took it into the lathe, thence into a back place, and after coming out he went into the field and looked about, then into a place behind, and afterwards returned again to his house. Witness then came for Mr. R. H. Kaye, chief inspector to the association, and they went to the place. He did not hear anything said about money passing between them, but he saw them go a yard or two into the field, where he heard them exchange money, and saw it counted into Gee's hand. He took Kaye to the last place where the sack was taken. They found the bag produced, in the back yard, where he (Wadsworth) had seen Balmforth goto. [got] The other (there were two bags produced in court, containing similar material but of different qualities) they found in the house where the defendant worked, on examining a second time. Balmforth was asked how he had come by these bags of waste, and he replied that he knew nothing about the one found in the outhouse, but said something about buying the other, but witness could not swear exactly what passed. He got that bag (the one placed nearest him, of the better quality of waste) in the barn where he had seen Balm- [Balmforth] forth go. He had no doubt but that a portion of the material had been removed. Cross-examined by Mr. J. I. Freeman.-They found the first sack in a sort of ashpit. [Washpit] The ashpit [Washpit] was not near the road at all. It was in front of the house, and had an open top. It did not stand in a public thorough- [thoroughfare] fare. There were some ashes in it. Anybody might get to it, but they must go into Balmforth's field to do so. The bag nearest him was there, and was not covered over with anything. Balmforth told Kaye he knew nothing about it. The other bag they took out of the room. He never knew that Balmforth was a small manufacturer. In the place where they found the last bag there was no other similar material. There was some listing and coping. There were some other things bundled in a sack on the bench. He would be about twenty yards distant when he watched Balmforth and Gee. It was just getting daylight. He would not un- [undertake] dertake [Drake] to swear that that sack (the one nearest him found in the outhouse) was the sack he saw Gee with. neither to the othor. [other] Richard Henry Kaye, Chief Inspector under the Worsted Act, was next examined by Mr. Floyd, and said he accompanied the last witness to Balmforth's house a little after eight o'clock. The defendant was at home. Witness believed he lived with his aunt. They searched the premises as well as they could. On going behind to the out-building, which was in front of the house, they found the first.sack, which agreed with the information Wadsworth had given. Subsequently they went into the house a second time and found the second bag. The out-premises, he understood, were not in the occupa- [occupy- occupation] tion [ion] of Balmforth, but would be shortly. Mr. Freeman objected that no evidence had been given that the first bag was found upon premises occu- [occur- occupied] pied by Balmforth. Mr. Floyd thought that the goods being found so im- [in- immediately] mediately contiguous, at least, to Balmforth's house, was very strong presumptive evidence. Mr. Brook (one of the magistrates) did not think that Mr. Floyd had established that the property was actually in the possession of the defendant. # Examination of Kaye continued.-He asked Balm- [Balmforth] forth about the one in the out-building, and defendant denied any knowledge of it, and said he could show in- [invoices] voices for the other. Cross-examined by Mr. Freeman-There are some cottages in the same field adjoining Balmforth's. There was a road some distance from the cottage. The bag pas found in the place where Wadsworth said we should nd it. This was the case for the prosecution, and Mr. Free- [Freeman] man then applied for an adjournment, in order that he might summon Mr. Buckley, and Mr. Bottomley. The question was argued pro. and con. for a long time, but the magistrates ultimately granted the adjournment. FALL OF A MILL AT STOCKPORT.-SEVERAL LIVES LOST. On Tuesday afternoon, between the one and two o'clock, a large portion of a new mill, called the way mill, the property of Mr. Cephas [Cease] Howard, fell suddenly to the ground. It isa new fire-proof mill, having been commenced in August last, and having been only occupied about a month by Mr. Joseph Heaword., [Heywood] It is a rather handsome erection, and the walls were apparently substantial enough it is 47 yards long and 20 wide, and is four storeys in height, the bottom one being the doubling room, the second for throstle [Thistle] spin- [spinning] ning, [nine] the third for carding, and the fourth for blowing. To support the intermediate flooring, a large and heavy iron flange beam, with an arched top, three feet four inches deep in the centre was carried longitudinally down the mill, and was supported upon the heads of the two nearest pillars and to the centre of this beam, the flooring beams for the outer walls of the building were carried; the ends of the cross beams were sup- [supported] ported upon strong boxes, and their ends were more- [moreover] over strongly bolted to the longitudinal beam. Of course, the nature of the construttion [construction] of this beam is of the utmost importance in determining the cause of the accident, which occurred just at this point of the mill. The whole of the building which depended upon the longitudinal beam and its supporting pillars-fell sud- [sid- suddenly] denly, [Denby] and without any previous warning, to the ground, with a fearful crash, burying several persons under the ruins. Altogether, about one-sixth part of the mill has fallen to the ground. Fortunately, the mill hands were almost all at dinner at the time, or the consequences to life must have been dreadful. As it was, there were only a few females, a boy, and a man, who had remained to eat their dinners at the mill, as far as we can learn in the part of the building which fell. John Marsh, 2 machine maker, was one of these; he was in the third storey, and he states that the first thing that alarmed was seeing the brickwork fall from the fire-proof arches of the room; that he immediately ran to the other end of the mill, and thus escaped, the building crashing down behind him as he went, The damage done to the mill and machinery is, as must necessarily have been the case, very considerable. A large piece of the upper portion of the west gable wall is torn away, and this gable wall, and also about forty feet (or four bays) of the southern side wall of the mill are much shattered by large and numerous cracks in them in all directions. It is estimated that the damage thus resulting to the carcass of the mill will be about 1,000, as nearly as can at present be calculated. The damage to the machinery is, however, computed at not less than 7,000. The machinery was all of the newest and best construction, and the following (almost all of them exceedingly valuable) machines are totally destroyed -Six carding engines, three jack frames, a drawing frame, a pair of intermediate frames, ten throstles, [throstle] eight or nine doubling frames, and two pair of reels. But this does not at all adequately represent the damage done, for a large number of most valuable machines have been most seri [sire] damaged falling of the longitudinal shafting we Se shafting carried d falling materials from the Manchester Guar.
