The Chronicle, April 6, 1850

A Huddersfield Newspaper; Its Necessity; And Our Policy

A HUDDERSFIELD NEWSPAPER ; ITS NECESSITY ; AND OUR POLICY.

Two months have now elapsed since we announced to the Public our intention to establish a Weekly Journal in this town. In that announcement we remarked that "it had been for many years matter of surprise that a Huddersfield Newspaper should not sooner have been called. into existence, with the view efficiently to promote its local interests, and foster that manufacturing taste and. skill which has opened up the markets of the eivilized world to its varied products,"

The result of 2 personal canvass of the Town, since § made, has fully borne out our first impressions, and the support already promised to our undertaking is the best possible proof of the desirability and absolute necessity of a sound Local Journal, devoted specially to the interests of Huddersfield f and its surrounding district,

It now becomes our pleasing duty, out of respect to the large number of those who have honoured us with their patronage, and in candour towards those whose patronage we yet hope and expect to receive, to state as briefly and: as plainly as possibie the principles upon which our new [ undertaking will be conducted.

In Loca AFFAIRS, we aim at becoming the impar-

tial chroniclers of the opinions of public men, not only in Huddersfield, but in the leading towns and densely-populated villages surrounding it, reserving to ourselves the right to comment upon their principles and the tendency o: their course of policy. To effect this latter object more completely than any of our contemporaries, arrangements are made, or in the course of being made, with a series of efficient Correspondents in the majority of the leading villages around us, whose intelligence will be drawn from authentic sources, and free from personal or party bias.

Tn Politics, our views will be decidediy Liberal and Progressive. We aim at adhering to what good men conserve from the past ; but shall, at the same time, pride ourselves on being among the foremost pioneers of improvement in the future. Where an evil exists, we shall boldly assail it, whether in connection with National or Local Government.

Free Traber will find in us consistent advocates, from a conviction of its justness in principle, and its instrumentality in bettering the condition of the great masses of the people. We desire, therefore, to: see the principle extended beyond its present limited range. If, on the other hand, the Agricultural Interest can show a clear case for Government interference, with the view to equalise the burthens of the Commonwealth, we shall be fully prepared to meet the arguments on legitimate grounds.

Conceiving that the most crying evils under whieh the masses of this kingdom labour are involved in our ill-devised social arrangements, and believing that political power should wait upon educated capacity, in order that men may use it with wisdom and sound discretion — we shall advocate, with perfect independence, a system of National Education for all, to be paid for by the contributions of all. This we shall endeavour to enforce with efficiency, and without wishing, intentionally, to give offence to those who may entertain different views.

Having a watchful eye to the reduction of National Taxation, which we conceive to have exceeded the essential requirements of Government, and the capabilities of the great body of those called on to contribute thereto, we shall support every measure of sound Reform in this department, which does not, in its consequences, imperil the efficiency of our National Defences. Against the present abuse of the Pension List we shall constantly raise our voice in terms of uncompromising remonstrance, until that class of the nation's. expenditure be thoroughly re-modelled.

Actuated by like convictions, we shall join our influence, in unison with many of our contemporaries, in support of the establishment of County Financial Boards, on the plan proposed by Mr. Milner Gibson, in the bill now before Parliament, but without pledging ourselves to all its details. We believe that some such measure is needed, in order to give the ratepayers an effectual control over the enormous sums levied on them for county purposes, and which, under a representative system, we conceive could be much reduced.

In the diversity of human opinion, we feel that we must of necessity differ in many important particulars with a great number of our readers ; but we hope sofar to show our candour and a disposition to fairness towards them, as to be ready at all seasonable times to admit an expression of their sentiments, though contrary to our own, under that portion of the Chronicle devoted to Ccorrespondence, in order that their views and arguments may receive that weight and respect to which they are no doubt entitled.

Our project, has not been commenced under a pledge to support the views of any man or class of men. Though we have no career in public to point to in the Past, we take credit for a determination to guide our undertaking with independence through the Future. Nor should our timely birth call forth any undue jealousy among our contemporaries, or lead them to suppose that we desire to supplant them by unfair means. Our legitimacy is beyond suspicion. We find it in the extent, wealth, enterprize, skill, and industry of Huddersiield itself, and also in the importance of its numerous-surrounding towns and villages.

Though we would speak with all possible respeet of the exertions of our contemporaries, we most respectfully remind the Public that so } long as our performances keep pace with our hopes and promises, we conceive it to be its duty to support the Chronicle by all legitimate means.
