On Sunday last three services were held in the Piece Hall, Halifax, in connection with the above movement. fessrs. [Messrs] Dickinson (from Rochdale,) and Grosjean, [Grossing] (from the third London Cireuit,) [Circuit] both expelled locals, preached. The morning attendance was about 2000, afternoon and evening twice that number. On Monday a tea party took place in the Odd-fellows' Hall, which was attended by a great number of the metho- [method- Methodist] dist body, more so than on former occasions, after which the public meeting commenced. We must here observe that owing to a circuit meeting, many of the leaders and local preachers were prevented being at this meeting. On the platform and in the body of the hall were the Reverends Ridley, (new connexion,) R. Moffatt, (Inde- [Ind- Independent] pendent.) W. Griffiths, (Wesleyan,) Messrs. G. B. Browne, . E. Foster, J. Cooper, J. S. Sykes, Josh. Broadbent, D. Bairstow, J. Dennison, Wm. Tinswell, [Tinsel] Chas. Farrar, - Dickinson, (an expelled local from Rochdale,) Grosjean, [Grossing] London, and Savage, Bradford. The Kev. W. Griffiths was loudly cheered on entering the room. The proceedings that rev. gentleman giving out the 503rd hymn, esley, [Wesley] Try us, O God, and search the ground Ofevery [Of every] sinful heart; &c., &c. Mr. W. C. Foster stated that for two hours they had been expecting the Rev. Samuel Dunn, and it was their in- [intention] tention, [mention] as a mark of respect, to have invited him to take thechair, [the chair] but they hoped to have Mr. Dunn'spresenceshorily; [Dunn'phosphorescence] in his absence they had a friend, a true friend, one who had been expelled, he was a local brother but not the less worthy for that, and he had great pleasure in proposing that Mr. Dickin, [Dick] of Rochdale, an expelled local preacher, take the chair. (Loud cheers.) B. Browne, Esq., seconded the motion. Mr. Dickin [Dick] had scarcely taken the chairman's place when the Rev. S. Dunn entered the room the whole company rose en masse to welcome him, and cheered repeatedly. The same gen- [gentleman] tleman [gentleman] moved and seconded Mr. Dunn as chairman, which Mr. Dickin [Dick] supported, and was;carried viva voce. [vice] The Rev. Duyn [Dunn] observed,-I am glad to see my esteemed and beloved Halifax friends once more. (Cheers.) We have been engaged in a sharp campaign since we last met. Our enemies are numerous and active, somewhat crafty and calumnious they have kept up a hot fire, but we are unhurt. Not a hair of our heads has been singed ; they have suspected our motives, mis-stated [is-stated] our principles, and misrepresented our practices, but God has been our refuge and strength, a very present help in the time of trouble, and though we have sometimes been surrounded with we have been persecuted but not forsaken, cast down but not destroyed. He has made way for our escape. The Watchman a short time ago stated that excitement has subsided now almost we certainly have an opportunity of judging equal to that respectable gentle- [gentleman] man from conference to this evening not a day has passed in Which the feeling has not deepened. We have held 160 meetings, averaging 1,000 each, and as far as I have been able to judge, but one out of 2,000 whom we have addressed have shown their approbation of conference discipline. (Cheers.) Most of you are aware that many of our esteemed brethren have since been excluded from the Wesleyan So- [Society] ciety [city] by the same power which was employed for our expulsion. During the Chancery suit which Dr. War- [Warren] ren [en] engaged in with conference, Baron Rolfe (then counsel for the conference party) observed in his speech, that conference possessed omnipotent power, which Dr. Bunting, Dr. Newton, and others of them who heard him, did not deny, and we regard this as lying at the root of all the evil the absolute power possessed by conference, to set up or put down, to take in or cast out. to deprive ministers of ministerial character and standing ; to deprive them and their families of income, and of all claims for old age, on funds they had subscribed to, and casting them, as far as they could, degraded before the British public. This great evil has its course, not only in the power put forth by the high party when they think roper, but in assisting prejudice or vindictive feeling. The same power that expelled us has inflicted, to a greater or less extent, penalties on scores. There is a power secretly exercised behind the curtain. The 1,200 preachers had their appointments by a stationing committee there is no redress, if appointed to an inferior circuit-no redress though his income be 50 or 100 less. It is done in pri- [pro- private] vate. [ate] Every member of that stationing committee is sworn-(Mr. Griffiths here checked the speaker.) I un- [understand] derstand, [understand] continued Mr. Dunn, what you mean. I would not wish any misstatement to go forth. I was observing, every member is sworn, but not on the New Testament. It is a kind of Quaker's oath, that nothing done there shall be divulged, whatever be the consequence. You say we preachers should be independent men, and not care whether one, two, or three hundred pounds be paid to us. There's the degradation of being gibbetted [gibbet] before the whole com- [community] munity; [unity] then we have wives and daughters, for whom we must have some little respect, for them to be sent to a dis- [distance] tani [tan] circuit, three or four hundred miles distant, is what we think ought not to be. hold the different degrees of ministry as do the Establishment, but we hold every Wesleyan minister equal. Dr. Bunting had never a greater degree than I have-never a greater right to inflict a penalty upon me than I had to inflict one upon him-he has never been my master. A Voice.- No, nor never will. (Loud cheers.) Keep in mind that the men who have multiplied laws five or seven-fold, have scarcely ever touched these laws. The men who have levied the taxes have never gone a begging for those taxes. (Cheers.) I refer to the sixpences which I opposed at the iverpool [Liverpool] Conference, and the additional subscriptions for the ological [logical] Institution. The whole of the men have been lo- [located] cated [acted] some of them have never had the presidency of a cir- [circuit] cuit. [cut] Dr. Bunting has been 30 years in London; Mason 28; the three secretaries, 20 years; they have been setting all the men in the provinces at work; not only assessed the taxes but carefully watched us to obedience to orders. Those men have no in circuits nothing to do in getting the money. Our Methodism is on an expensive plan, that we have expensive institutions, on a magnificent scale, I need refer to the 30,090 for the London Tavern, or the 40,000 for the Theological Institution. They have made rich men necessary; they have found it necessry [necessary] to secure the purse men, in order to procure their assistance ; they have conferred honour upon them; these favourite aristocrats are placed on all the committees, and what be- [between] tween the clique in conference and the purse men the energies of the preachers have been completely paralysed. Let any preacher offend the high conference party, and they will sacrifice a dozen plain men rather than loose one of their aristocrats. I wish to correct one error-I said that Thomas Jackson, president of the conference, has never had a circuit, but he once was at Sowerby Bridge some ten years ago. upon me at Dudley, and after telling me I understood Methodist affairs better than he did, I am not sure whether he did not say that he had never been a superintendent of a circuit or that he had only been once so. Do you find our ministers now in the high- [highways] ways and hedges, or the market place during either the sun's rays or winter's chilly blust [bust Do not many otten [often] preach only in the morning Are they zealous to break up new ground What is the aggregate character of Wesleyan Methodism It has been lost for the last ten years. And this arises from what Last Tuesday I had the pleasure of taking tea with Mr. Dixon. Mr. Griffiths turned round and said, Did you say Dr. Bunting.' (Laughter and cheers.) No, Dr. Dixon. A person sai [said] to me the other day at the Derby station, if I could but hear tell of you taking tea with Dr. Bunting it would fill my heart with joy. But I took tea with a man equally as clear-headed, as lofty in sentiment, as bright a genius, and as far-seeing, as Dr. Bunting himself. (Cheers.) Dr. Dixon said to me, last Tuesday, have one great evil, that so much is done by usage, and not ac- [according] cording to explicit defined law. The Dr. wrote to me twelve months ago, before I was expelled by Conference, and, after examining various statements made by me, he observed, Dunn, you have not yet hit the core of the evil; the great evil among us is centralization. That's a big word, it refers to power, to influence, to our wide- [wide spreading] spreading community being conveyed to a small point. The time is come when the tremendous power exercised by superinten- [superintend- superintend] dents should be taken away; that none should have the power to expel leader, local preacher, or member, without a fair trial and with the Spproval [Approval] of a leaders' meeting ; and, if any one feels wronged, the appeal shall not be to a Minor District Meeting; shall not Pp composed of more preachers than laymen. Mr, Dunn r a string of grievances which bore upon the recent expulsions. If the superintendent thinks the brother charged has a majority, or is likely to have at the leaders' meeting, he says, 'T'll not take his case at all or, I'll wait till the local preachers quarterly meeting. The speaker concluded b saying,-You will give me a few minutes' rest, when tell you that I had a hard day's work yesterday, and have been at it travelling ever since seven this morning, nor have I yet had dinner or tea. (Some of the friends hastened to get the rev. gentleman a little refreshment.) Mr. Dunn sat down amidst loud and hearty applause. Mr. Dicktn, [Dickens] from Rochdale, (an expelled local preacher,) next addressed the meeting. The CHarRMAN [Chairman] then rose and read a letter received since entering the room from G. W. Harrison, Esq., (ex-mayor of Wakefield,) and a leading man there in the Wesleyan dy, end enclosing a copy of the letter of expulsion re- [received] ceived [received] by Mr. Harrison, on Saturday, the 29th, [the] from Joseph Thorpe Milner. The announcement was received with loud cries of 'shame, shame. Mr. Harrison went on to say, in his note, that he should take no notice of the letter sent him, but should meet his class as usual. Mr. Wood- [Woodhead] head, Mr. Hatchells, [Hatch ells] James Gurney, Sergeant Boyles, Mr. Neales, [Neale] and several others have had their tickets with- [withheld] held. The charge against Sergeant Boyles was for havin [having] attended a meeting to sympathize with the expelled, an having had his child baptized [Baptist] by James Everitt. (Shame.) The officers and leaders on the Wakefield cireuit [circuit] were meeting that very morning (Monday) to consider the dis- [disturbed] turbed [turned] state of the society, and this (observed the Chair- [Chairman] man) accounts for Mr. Harrison's absence from our meeting, he having been advertised to be present. Mr. an expelled local, leader, and trustee, of the third London circuit, was next called upon. He gave a full and lengthy statement as to the circuit with which he is connected, (for though expelled he still meets his class,) and the contests the reformers had with the Rev. 'eter [enter] Duncan, who had lorded it, or tried to do so, in the said third London circuit. The Rev. W. GrirriTHs [Griffiths] next addressed the meeting in brief terms. The reverend speaker, in his usual style, for- [forcibly] cibly [forcibly] and peculiarly laid before the meeting the wrongs complained of, alluded to the South-parade meeting, which had been evidently called for that evening, in order to defeat their meeting. He had no doubt the result would show them they had played a false move; they had not been prevented holding the meeting, though many of the leading men (the office-men) were obliged to be at South- [South parade] parade Chapel. Had it prevented them from having a good meeting The few days intervening between the coming of the next conference, to be held in the City-road Chapel, he considered of great importance-and if confe- [cone- conference] rence [rents] refused their rights, they must stop the supplies. (Great cheering.) He prayed it might not be necessary- [necessary and] and might God be with them, and cause His face to shin upon them-and might they meet in six weeks to shake hands, and agree with each other to forgive and forget. (Loud applause.) On the motion of Mr. Foster, seconded by Mr. Cuas. [Cas] FaRRaR, [Farrar] thanks were voted to the delegates, Messrs. Jackson, Dodgson, and Shaw, and at the suggestion of the chairman that meeting appointed them (not re-appointed) to the same duties when required. Mr. Savace, [Savage] of Bradford (also expelled), in supporting the last resolution, felt happy in having once more the opportunity of witnessing one of their old ministers pre- [presiding] siding over them. Thanks were voted to the chairman, and the meeting broke up at a quarter past eleven. Many of Mr. Dunn's former fiock [flock] came on the platform to greet him. OPENING OF THE LINE OF RAILWAY FROM HUDDERSFIELD TO HOLMFIRTH AND PENISTONE. The above line, connecting the town of Huddersfield with Holmfirth and Penistone, was opened for passenger traffic on Monday last. The line has been some weeks past sur- [Sir- surveyed] veyed [eyed] by the government inspector, and by him pronounced in a safe and most satisfactory state. me three weeks since we travelled over the whole line, accompanied by Mr. Fraser, the resident engineer, when we found the whole of the works in a finished state, but in con- [consequence] sequence of some of the arrangements being then incom- [income- incomplete] lete, [let] the general opening was deferred to Monday last. During the day a large crowd of pleasure seekers availed themselves of the opening day to make a trip along the line, and, although the weather was somewhat unfavour- [favour- unfavourable] able during the earlier part of the morning, the demand for places was greater at the road-side stations than the com- [company] pany [any] could accommodate. This may be accounted for from the circumstance that the inhabitants of the district through which this line passes have hitherto had no railway of which they could avail themselves, and as the train by which we proceeded to Penistone, about noon, neared the intermediate stations of Berry Brow, Brockholes, Thur- [Thurstonland] stonland, [Scotland] &c., the crowd who were anxious to join in the trip became immense, and beyond the capability of Mr. Hall, (the traffic manager of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway,) to accommodate. Owing to the dampness of the rails and the unfavourable gradients, together with the heaviness of the train, the voyageurs were fairly stuck fast in Stocksmoor tunnel, and, as the only and last expedient, a portion of the train had to be detached, and the remainder left in the tunnel until their more fortunate companions had been taken through, when the engine returned for the second edi- [ed- edition] tion. [ion. This little difficulty having been surmounted, the whole party were safely landed at Penistone, the only un- [unpleasant] pleasant circumstance consisting in the fact that the train ae considerably behind the time set down in the time- [timetable] table. A portion of the company diverted themselves during the afternoon by rambling about the delightful country sur- [Sir- surrounding] rounding Penistone; and in the evening Messrs, Miller, Blackie, and Shortridge, [Short ridge] the contractors for the construc- [construct- construction] tion [ion] of the line, entertained some thirty of the principal officers of the line, and their own chief managers, ata [at] sumptuous repast at the Rose and Crown, which was served in Mr. Senior's best style. Mr. DRANSFIELD, of Penistone, presided; the vice-chair being filled by Mr. MILLER, sen. Among the guests were Mr. Frazer (resident engineer of the line), Mr. Hall (rane [ran] manager of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Company), Mr. Henry Miller, Mr. Shortridge, [Short ridge] Mr. Hall (assistant engineer of the line), Mr. Nicholson, Mr. Massey, Mr. Henry and Mr. John Rawlins, Mr. Jabez Brook, Mr. Kilner, and other gentlemen. The usual loyal toasts were given from the chair, and duly responded to, after which the Health of the Direc- [Direct- Directors] tors of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Company, Mr. Hawkshaw, the engineer, Mr. Fraser, resident en- [engineer] gineer, [engineer, The Contractors, The Chairman, and the usual local toasts followed in rapid succession, and elicited some pertinent and congratulatory addresses from the several speakers. The evening was spent in great har- [harmony] mony, [money] and when the night had somewhat far advanced the powerofsteam [professed] was called into requisition, and the major por- [or- portion] tion [ion] were speedily in Huddersfield, much pleased with their day's excursion,-with the admirable state of the works,- [works] and who, at parting, expressed their deep obligations to Mr. Frazer, the resident engineer, whose courtesy towards ourselves we most gratefully acknowledge, and to whose kind assistance we are indebted for the following DESCRIPTION OF THE LINE. The line is but thirteen and a half miles in length, com- [commencing] mencing [fencing] at Huddersfield and ending at Penistone yet it would be difficult to find any thirteen miles of railway in the kingdom, where the works have been of that formidable and costly character that appertain to this. The following description of the works on the course of the line, will per- [perhaps] haps [has] convey some notion of the difficulties the engineer has had to contend with, and the obstacles the contractor has had to overcome. The line commences in the Spring Wood, a little to the south-west of Huddersfield, but closely adjoining the town, at a point of junction with the Hud- [HUD- Huddersfield] dersfield [Huddersfield] and Manchester Railway-the Spring Wood tun- [tunnel] nel [ne] of the latter, being opened by a deep cutting at that point to admit of the junction being made in the light. The station of the Huddersfield and Manchester Railway will be used by the Yorkshire and Lancashire Company for the traffic of the Huddersfield and Penistone Railway that company being the lessess [leases] of the latter line. Almost immediately on leaving the Spring-wood tunnel, on the Huddersfield and Manchester line by an opening in its side, as it were, the Huddersfield and Penistone Railway has to stride boldly across a deep valley from the bank on the west side of the Spring-wood, to the high ground near Thornton-lodge, stretching over at once the river, the canal, two highways, and a turnpike-road. This valley will be crossed by a viaduct consisting of about 13,000 cubic yards of masonry. It will consist of twenty openings, fif- [if- fifteen] teen of them being arches of 30 feet span, and four of the openings being spanned by iron trellice [relict] work of a peculiar construction, and the remaining opening over the Wake- [Wakefield] field and Austerlands [Islands] turnpike-road by girders, the abut- [abutments] ments [rents] and many places standing obliquely, or on the skew, From the bed of the river to the surtace [surface] of the rails is 70 feet. The span of the iron trelliced [realised] and girder bridges will be 77 feet, and the whole will be ona [on] curve of 35 chains. Within a short distance of leaving the Paddock viaduct above described, the line enters the Yew Green Tunnel, constructed under a hill eighty-six feet above the surface of the rail; the tunnel being 225 yards long. Then passing along an embankment, 264 yards in length and fourteen feet high, in which is a bridge for the Yew Green and Lockwood highway, it comes to an excavation through a inted [United] hill, 45 feet high from the surface of the rail and about 200 yards in length, when it boldly enters into the Lockwood valley, crossing by a viaduct 478 yards in length, The depth of the valley will be judged when it is stated that from the bed of the rivulet, which flows down it to the surface of the rail, it is no less than 139 feet; the height of the masonry from the founda- [found- foundation] tion [ion] ot the centre piers to the parapet of the viaduct being 146 feet. The viaduct is divided into 34 openings, consist- [consisting] ing of 32 arches of 30 feet span, one oblique arch of 70 feet span, at an angle of 33, where it crosses the Huddersfield and Meltham road; and on the opposite side of the valley a second skew arch of 42 feet span, at an angle of 52. The viaduct itself is one of the wonders of the land, as was truly observed by Earl Fitzwilliam on his late visit to the town. Bold as it is in conception and design, its execution is in no way inferior; and it may in all respects, both as to en- [engineering] gineering, [engineering] architecture, and workmanship, challenge com- [comparison] parison [prison] with any railway works in the kingdom. The style of masonry is peculiar. Neither the piers nor the arches are composed of large blocks of stone arranged in what is technically termed blocking course but strange as it may appear the high towering piers, rising from the bed of the valley to a height that almost causes giddiness to look at, and the arches that unite the whole together at the top, are built of rubble, or small stones interspersed with binders; the whole forming one compact and substantial mass, not liable to crack and give way as some of the piers constructed in the other mode in other places have done. Of this we speak with some degree of confidence, for not long ago we accompanied one of the first builders in England-one who has constructed most extensive works in connection with the Great Western Company, to view this viaduct, and he pronounced it to be the finest workmanship he had ever seen. 34,000 cubic yards of masonry, and the viaduct as a whole has cost 30,000. Across the viaduct, the rails are laid on longitudinal sleepers, well braced and bolted to- [together] gether, [ether] over these the motion is exceedingly easy. Leaving the viaduct, the line enters abruptly into the Taylor Hill cutting, which is 396 yards long, and 61 feet deep, then by a short embankment into the Berry Brow cutting of a similar length to the one at Taylor Hill, and 46 feet deep. Both these cuttings were through solid rock, and it was here where the stone for the immense viaduct before described have been procured. From the two there have been removed no less a quantity than 201,9 cubic yards of earth and rock. Leaving the Berry Brow cutting, an embankment, 616 yards long and 50 feet high, is next reached, the public road t to Newsome passing through the embankment by means of a skew arch. After another pot cutting, the Robin Hood tunnel is ich [inch] is yards long, passing through a hill 78 feet hi from the face of the rail. On leaving the tunnel, a short excavation through the remainder of the hill occurs, and then the line stretches over a deep and narrow gorge, where the natural surface of the ground on which the earth for the embankm [embark] ent [end] is laid, was at an inclination of one in one. An occupation road passes through this embankment; the bridge used for that purpose being no less than 100 yards in length. Though the valley at the points of crossing is but 220 yards wide, the height of the embankment from the bed of the water is 85 feet. Leaving this embankment, the line enters abruptly into a hill by a cutting, and then eccurs [occurs] a third tunnel, about 80 yards in length, over which passes, at an elevation of 56 feet above the rails, a public highway. Beyond the tunnel there is more of deep exca- [exact- excavation] vation [nation] through the remainder of the hill, when another deep valley is reached called the Gynn-the height from the bed of the rivulet to the surface of the rail is 91 feet. A public road crosses through, and the embankment itself is very wide at the base, rendered necessary by the slippery state of the ground. Another hill, called Cliffe Wood, next presents itself, which is passed through by an open cutting 400 yards in length and 61 feet deep, on the slope. A short embankment carries the rail into the bosom of another hill, part of Cliffe Wood, the cutting being nearly of a similar length and depth to the last. On emerging from the excavation, Brock-holes Valley is next reached, crossed by an embankment, 506 yards long and 60 feet high, with a long bridge tor an occupation road under- [underneath] neath, and at the upper end a tram-road for a neighbour- [neighbouring] ing colliery. A high hill, called Thurstonland Bank, next presents itself, in the face of which an excavation 280 yards long, has been made, and then the hill is penetrated by the Thurstonland tunnel, which is just upon 1,700 yards in length. The height of the hill above the surface of the rail is 270 feet. The tunnel, was worked by means of five shafts, in different portions of the hill. Consider- [Considerable] able inconvenience was experienced by the contractors in the formation of this tunnel from the quantity of water met with-driftways [with-drift ways] having had to be formed through the sides of the hill to get it away from the works. On emerging through this tunnel, an excavation through the remainder of the hill presents itself, and after passing along a short low embankment the line enters another ex- [excavation] cavation, [cation] called the Stocks Moor cutting, which is upwards of 900 yards in length, and thirty-six feet in depth. From this excavation upwards of 150,000 cubic yards of earth have been removed. Leaving this cutting, another deep narrow gorge presents itself, called Stone Wood, crossed by an embankment, which, though only 200 yards long, required upwards of 200,000 cubic yards of earth to form it. A five feet culvert passes through the base, the length of which is upwards of 200 yards. The height of this Stone Wood embankment is 107 feet. The line then continues through cuttings and over embankments, and through cut- [cuttings] tings and over embankments again, such as would in some districts of country be considered formidable indeed but which, after those we have described, are comparatively in- [insignificant] significant, and therefore we pass them without other notice than a mere mention, until we arrive at the hill of Cumberworth, which is entered first by an open cutting, 350 yards long, and at a depth varying from 12 to 50 feet, and then penetrated by a tunnel 814 yards in length, the height of the hill above the rail being 120 feet. After leaving the tunnel, there is a deep excavation 600 yards long, and in places, 43 feet deep. On emerging from the excavation Denby Dale appears, and if the wonder of the traveller at the nature of the works he has already passed over has not been excited, he will surely here meet with what will arrest his attention. The dale at the point of crossing is upwards of 1,000 yards wide, and from an em- [embankment] bankment [embankment] at each end, the deepest portion of the dale is crossed by a wooden viaduct nearly 400 yards in length, and towering into the air from the bed of the rivulet to a height of 112 feet. This viaduct is unique, beams of timber set end on end, held together by cross pieces placed at richt [right] angles, and diagonally, and surmounted on the top bya [by] double flooring composed of planks passing also diagonally and cross-wise ond [and] over the whole the rails are laid on lon- [on- longitudinal] gitudinal [Cardinal] sleepers. Its appearance is so unusual in the con- [construction] struction [instruction] of railwaysas [railways as] to exciteastonishment [excite astonishment] in the beholder. The general appearance is one of extreme lightness-indeed, it has something of the birdcage like character, when con- [contrasted] trasted [trusted] with the massy [mass] piers and bold stone arches of the Lockwood viaduct but the wooden viaduct is no less a work of art and skill. The work is here, and it is an extra- [extraordinary] ordinary one one well worth a considerable journey alone to view. The viaduct is ona [on] curve of halfa [half] mile radius, and when viewed from the lower part of the valley, at about half a mile distance, where the eye can take in the whole of the parts without the confusion of detail the effect is striking indeed. Leaving the valley, the line next enters a cutting upwards of 700 yards in length, and in depth varying from 32 to 7 feet, and then over and through a succession of embankments and cuttings, until Wellhouse Hill is reached, through which there is a tunnel 400 yards in length, being the sixth met with since the start from Huddersfield. Beyond the tunnel there is an open cutting 500 yards in length, and 60 feet deep, which is crossed by a bridge, over which passes the Penistone and Barnsley turnpike-road. The Penistone valley next presents itself, across which the line is carried, first by an embankment 600 yards in length, and varying from 4 to 60 feet high, and then by the Penistone viaduct, which is 330 yards long, and rises toa [to] height from the bed of the river Don, which passes beneath, of 83 feet. This viaduct is built of stone, and consists of 8 arches. It is on a curve of 40 chains radius; and the inside of the curve being towards the town, gives to the work, when viewed from that quarter, a most pleasing ef- [effect] fect. [fact] The work is substantial as well as pleasing. After leaving the valley by another embankment, and passing through a shallow cutting and a last embankment, a junc- [June- junction] tion [ion] is formed with the Sheffield and Manchester line a little below the town of Penistone. To this point from Huddersfield it is but 13 miles, yet we have met with four immense and expensive viaducts, six tunnels, one of them nearly a mile in length, and ase- [as- second] cond [con] halt a mile; 20 embankments, some of them most formidable affairs an equal number of long and deep exca- [exact- excavations] vations [nations] and in addition, the line is crossed by 30 bridges, some of them of a very expensive character, varying from 3,000 to 200 cubic yards of masonry in each. The gradient from Huddersfield Spring Wood to the east end of Thurstonland tunnel is a rise of 1 in 100. From that point to the junction at Penistone the general rise is 1 in bean some inconsiderable portions of the line being on the evel, [eve] As may be imagined from the description of the nature of the country already given, some most charming views of scenery are to be witnessed at different points of the line, Hill and dale in rapid succession present themselves in all tho beauty and boldness of diversity and abruptness, now sweeping away in the distance and now towering over- [overhead] head, sudden and steep. From the Brockholes embankment is a branch line of some two miles in length to the town of Holmfirth, which then es through an open cutting some 36 feet deep into the Mytholmroyd [Mildred] bridge valley, which is crossed first by an embankment varying from 10 to 42 feet in height, the New Mill turnpike-road passing through it by a skew bridge at an angle of 49, and then by a wooden viaduct, 206 yards long, generally similar in construction to the one in Denby Dale. The height, from the bed of the rivulet to the face of the rail is 90 feet. From the south end of the viaduct another embankment, 52 feet high, leads into an open rock cutting, 950 yards in length, and varying from 6 to 40 feet in depth, and from which has had to be removed 38,529 cubic yards of stone. This embankment is crossed by two public highways, leading from Huddersfield and Thongs- [Thongsbridge] bridge to Wooldale. The line then proceeds by a succes- [success- succession] sion of embankments and cuttings of a comparatively tri- [ti- trifling] fling character, although one of the embankments is 58 feet high, to the terminus, opposite the Town-hall at Holm- [Holmfirth] firth. The rate of inclination from the junction at Brock- [Brockholes] holes to the Mytholmroyd [Mildred] Bridge Valley is a descent of 1 in 100. The valley is crossed at a level. Then upto [unto] Berry Banks there is an ascent of 1 in 120, and from that point to the terminus the line is on the level. The cost of the Mytholmroyd [Mildred] bridge viaduct has been 7,000. OPENING OF THE RAILWAY TO HOLMFIRTH. This event, fraught with so much importance to Holm- [Holmfirth] firth, took place, according to an announcement in last week's Chronicle, on Monday last, the 1st inst. Holmfirth is now at length, in point of railroad accommodation, placed on an equality with other heretofore more highly favoured, though perhaps less significant towns. -arrangements having been made amongst a number of the gentry, professional men, millowners, [milliners] manufacturers, and others, in Holmfirth, it was determined to celebrate the occasion in a manner worthy of, and properly befitting so great a novelty. At an early hour in the morning the church bells pro- [proclaimed] claimed deep-mouthed welcome to the hundreds of gay holi- [hole- holiday] day folks who already thronged the streets, anticipatory of a full day's enjoyment, continuing at short intervals to our forth merry strains of music throughout the entire day. the morning was decidedly wet, but even this could not damp the spirits of the countless thousands as- [assembled] sembled [assembled] principally about the station. . The time fixed upon for making a short excursion trip, was by the train which leaves Holmfirth at 11 25 a.m., and at this hour the party, accompanied by an excellent band of music, headed and conducted by that indefatigable pro- [promoter] moter [mother] of any local event conducive to the public good-Mr. James Bates, of Winnay [Winney] Bank, entered the carriages, and amidst the deafening plaudits of the assembled multitudes, were whirled away to Huddersfield. Arrived here, they were greeted by a splendid military band. A move was next made by the 12 10 train to the finished market town of Penistone. Being Penistone feast of course the attraction was great indeed, and hence the packed con- [condition] dition [edition] of the carriages, and the increased consequent weight. Hard work it was truly, on anything approaching to an incline, to make head-way with a single engine, by which the monster train was lugged. Push-along-keep-moving however, was the motto carried out, until having entered the tunnel at Stocksmoor, and here immured in the bowels of the earth, the engine refused its office, the train being brought to a dead stand when about midway through. The powers of steam were indeed stretched as far as the safety-point permitted, but literally it was no go. One plan only seemed desirable, and this, as soon as might be was adopted. One half of the i were detached from the remainder, and were run through the tunnel which is just a mile long. The engine then returned to the rescue of the poor benighted travellers so cruelly deserted, and brought them also to daylight. The whole was again a freshstart [fresh start] made, and finally the finished town of Penistone was duly reached. The day was now brilli- [bill- brilliantly] antly [aptly] fine-the streets were crowded-church bells ringing -umusic [music] playing-every place in fact denoted the prevail- [prevailing] ing excitement, the holding high festival. A short stay only was made here by the Holmfirth excursionists, who were engaged to join in the public dinner, the event of the day, at the White Hart Inn, Holmfirth, at 5 p.m. The return home was safely accomplished about an hour after the expected time. At a few minutes past five, a chaste and sumptuous ban- [banquet] uet [yet] was served up in the blue room, in first-rate style, oing [doing] infinite credit to Mr. and Mrs. Dyson. Covers were laid for thirty, to which number the issue of tickets had been limited; the price being fixed at six shillings each. y some strange oversight, not a single gratuitous ticket had been forwarded to any of the correspon- [response- correspondents] dents at Holmfirth-not even to the gentleman of The Press Who represents the Chronicle, now, of course, the local paper. e omission of an act of courtesy so usual, until now, indeed, so universal, on all public occasions elsewhere, is inexplicable. The repre- prepare- representative] sentative [sensitive was present, however, and is thus enabled to epitomized account - n entrusted to Sidney Morehouse, Esq., of Moorcroft; and perhaps a happier.selection could not have been made; his competency for the sometimes arduous duties as chairman, over a public dinner, added to his well-known character for urbanity, rendering the choice Nor was the worthy vice-president, in the person of James Bates, Esq., of Winney-bank, a whit behind in aptitude for his special post. The first toast given was The Queen,' which the Chairman, after dwelling pithily upon the many virtues and endearing traits inherent in the person of our beloved sovereign, touched feelingly upon the recent assault upon her by the ci-devant [ci-servant] lieutenant; during his remarks upon which the expressed indignation of all present showed that, at least, fervid loyalty was here. Prince Albert and the rest of the Royal Family the chairman then introduced, with a few pertinent remarks, and this was also drunk with all the honours. Next followed, in succession, the appended toasts, each eliciting a speech from one or more of the company - Army and Navy Success to the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Company The Town ard [ad] Trade of This brought out a very excellent and ger- [her- Roger] om Mr. George Tinker, followed by Mr. Abel Cuttell, junr., [June] and others 'The professional gentle- [gentlemen] men-of [of] the law-in Holmfirth -to this toast Mr. Ive- [Iveson] son and Mr. Harry Booth, the two solicitors in the room, each responded, cf course, with true legal eloquence.

She possesses a very plenty of warehousing and is, moreover, furnished less than eight trains a day, besides an extra one on the Tuesday.

RE-EXAMINATION AND COMMITTAL OF THE PRISONER. Robert Pate was again brought up at the Home-office to-day, for examination, before Mr. Hall, the Chief gistrate [magistrate] of Bow-street Police Court. Sir George Grey, and Lord Fitzroy Somerset, were present. The Attorney and Solicitor-General, appeared for the Crown, and Mr. Hud- [HUD- Huddlestone] dlestone [Liston] for the prisoner. There were only two fresh wit- [witnesses] nesses [senses] called, viz., Joseph Ball, coachman to Lady Wil- [Willoughby] loughby [Lough] D'Eresby, [D'Crosby] who deposed that he saw a tall man strike her Majesty with a small stick. Her Majesty pat up her hand to her head directly the blow was struck, and one of her Majesty's servantsseized [servants seized] the man and he wasdelivered [was delivered] over to a policeman. The prisoner was the man who struck the blow.-Sir James Clark, physician, said he was called in to attend her Majesty on the evening of the 27th timo. [time] He examined her Majesty's forehead, when he found a swelling on the left temple, and a small incision from which blood had flowed, but which had stopped pre- [previous] vious [pious] to his arrival.-The prisoner was committed to New- [Newgate] gate to take his trial for misdemeanour, and the witnesses bound over to give evidence against him on his trial -Mr. Mayne, Chief Commissioner of Police, was bound over to prosecute, and the prisoner was removed. He looked pate from want of exercise, and his eyes appeared more vacant than when he was last examined. Since he has been in prison his conduct has been most excellent, his whole time being occupied in reading and study. The proceedings ex- [excited] cited little interest, and but few persons assembled in froat [front] of the Home-office. THE QUARTER'S REVENUE. (From the Globe.) The accounts to be closed this evening, when compared with those made upon the 5th July, 1849, exhibit a large increase in the receipts from the Customs and Excise, and a small increase upon the Assessed Taxes and the Post- [Post office] office Revenue, and little or no falling off upon any other branch. From the Customs, this quarter, we expect thaĆ© [that] the receipts will amount to 4,290,000, against 4,128,000 in the corresponding quarter of last year; and this not- [notwithstanding] withstanding the reduction of the sugar duties after the 5th July, 1849. The Excise Revenue will probably yield for the quarter 3,240,000, against 3,020,000 received in the same period of last year. Upon stamps we shall be satisfied if there is no positive decline. The expectation that the pending Bills, originally intended to take effect from this day, would have passed sooner, and so introduce the new and generally lower raies [raise] of duty, has caused a partial suspension of the receipts from this source, which is to be made up, however, in the removal of its cause. The assessed taxes are likely to show a small increase, but these do not very closely indicate the state of the com- [community] munity. [unity] The income-tax may be expected to yield about the same sum as last year, and the Post-office receipts will also be found on the growing side, though the whele [while] amount is not now large enough to be of much importance in a fiscal point of view. Altogether, when we remember that the July quarter of 1849 showed a marked improve- [improvement] Ment [Men] on its predecessor, we are aS much surprised as pleased to find that the Quarter's Revenue now being made up is likely to yield an aggregate increase cf 400,000. LorRD [Lord] PALMERSTON announced last night, in the House of Commons that he had received a copy of a Treaty of Peace, signed on the 2nd inst. between the King of Den- [Denmark] mark and the King of Prussia, acting in his own behalf and also on behalf of the German confederation-the treaty would be ratified in the course of three weeks.

I some cases a slight advance has been paid for wheat. Oats and oatmeal slow of sale without change in value. Indian corn the turn cheaper. Other articles unaltered in valve, with a moderate demand.

MARKETS. HUDDERSFIELD, Jury 2. We have this week to report a decided improvement in our market an average amount of business has been doing in the hall to-day. The warehouses have been brisker duriag [during] the week than for some time past, indeed some have amouuted [amounted] to being quite busy for the American market. Low fancys [fancy] and tweeds have been in request to-day. Con- [Considering] sidering [considering] the London wool sales the market is good, and there is every probability of its keeping firm for some time. BRADFORD MaRKET, [Market] Thursday last.-The market was well attended, and the business in all kinds of goods was equal to last week. Hairax, [Hair] Saturday, June 29.-The inquiry for worsted goods is scarcely so active as it was the merchants bemg [beg] unwilling to give an increase of price adequate to the en- [enhanced] hanced [handed] cost of the raw material. The demand for varn [van] continues good, and the late advance is freely obtained. There is a moderate amount of business doing in wool, and the quotations are firm, at the recent advance but the consumers appear very reluctant to accede to the farther rise demanded by the growers, Leeps, [Lees] Tuesday, July 2.-We have had a good market at the Cloth Halls, both Saturday and to-day, and tke [the] woollen trade generally is very brisk. Prices keep firm, and in consequence of manufacturers being engs [eng] to order, stocks are very low. There is also a good business doing in the warehouses, both for the home and foreign rade. [trade] RocHDALE, [Rochdale] Monday, July 1.-We have had a very fur demand for flannels to-day, at prices much the same as those of last week. The manufacturers continue to pur- [our- purchase] chase the raw material very sparingly, and the woolstaplers [wool staplers] hold out for good prices. The work people are in full em- [employment] ployment, [Parliament] and the stocks on hand are extremely light. MACCLESFIELD, Tuesday, July 2.-There is no favour. able alteration to notice as regards the trade of this town, many weavers are understood to be out of employment, and the sales of goods are only to a small ex- [extent] tent. Ifany [Fanny] demand should eventually arise, we apprehend there will be a scarcity of goods, consequent on production having been very much limited of late. The throwiag [throwing] trade continues in very unsatisfactory state, prices of raw and thrown silk being almost on a par in consequence of which several more throwing concerns have been to a stand for the present. In the public sales of raw silk, held in London last week, very little business was transacted - owing to the high rates demanded, the bulk of the silk was withdrawn at extreme rates. WAKEFIELD CorN [Corn] Market, Yesterday, July dth.- [th] The supply of all grain continues liberal for the season of the year. To-day factors generally demanded ls. per yr. advance upon all descriptions of wheat, which in some ia- [instances] stances the millers have been reluctantly compelled to pay, but at the rates of last Friday a large business might have been done in this article. Beans and grinding barley fully support late prices. There is an improved demand for oats and shelling, without any material change in the value of either. Malt as before. Arrivals -Wheat, 12776 barley, 1311 oats, 593 beans, 414; peas, 291 qrs. [Mrs] malt, 282)ds. [W)ds] Lonpon [London] Corn MaRKET, [Market] Wedesday [Wednesday] last.-The supply of English grain continues exceedingly small, and the foreign arrivals are also small; but there has been very little business doing in any description of grain. Wheat fully realised Monday's prices, and foreign is held with Increasing firmness, although the demand is limited. Good, fresh, heavy oats are in request. The weather here is cool and showery, and from Liverpool it is stated a good deal of rain, which was much wanted, has fallen in that neighbourhood. LiverrooL [Liverpool] CorN [Corn] Market, Tuesday, July 2.- The attendance to-day is limited. Arrivals very large, aad [and] weather very fine. The trade wears a heavy aspect. Buyers operate with great caution, and business is done generally at prices scarcely so good as on Friday. EEDS [LEEDS] Corn Excuance, [Excuse] Tuesday, July 2.- We are well supplied With wheat, for which there is a fair demand at last Friday's prices. Malting barley nominal, and beans do not vary in value. Arrivals wheat, 8,437; beans, 229 shelling, 120; cats, 365; flour, 10, Hutt Corn Market, Tuesday, July 2.-Fresh wheat 1s. dearer. No change in foreign. Spring corn quite as ear. NEwcasTLE-UPON-TYNE [Newcastle-UPON-TYNE] CORN Marker, Tuesday, - 2.-Supplies of all kinds of grain exceedingly liberal ee the trade rules dull in the extreme for both wheat and flour, at barely the rates of Saturday. In barley, oats, and other articles, a srg [sr] to notice. VERPOOL [LIVERPOOL] COTTON MARKET, Tuesda [Tuesday] July 2.- firmness and strong demand in the on Saturday have continued over the past two days, and the prices may be considered a shade dearer.
