TO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE. Srz,-Knowing [Sr,-Knowing] your willingness to allow the senti- [sent- sentiments] ments [rents] of the inhabitants of the town, to be expressed through the medium of your paper, I shall feel obliged if you will allow this to be inserted in your next publi- [public- publication] cation. The difficulty of obtaining a sitting in the Parish Church is well known. I merely state that for above four months I have tried to obtain anything like a comfortable sitting, and have not as yet succeeded, nor do I see any prospect of so doing. This is not because the pews are all so full, that there is no room, it is owing to the obnoxious system of the pews being bought and sold like so much merchandise. It is rather vexatious to see pews only half filled, and know that you cannot obtain even a single sitting in one of them. Such being the case, Sir, I would ask why is there not service ona [on] Sunday evening at St. It would be very much in occordance [accordance] with the wishes of the majority of the congregation, who worship there, and would also enable many, who like myself, cannot attend the Parish church, to take pews and sittings there. A small outlay in extending the gas piping from the organ gallery and affixing a few pendants, is all that would be necessary, and I am sure the expense would be trifling compared with the accommodation it would afford to many. I hope, Sir, that the ministers and churchwardens will take the subject into their serious consideration, and that all who wish to attend divine service on a Sunday evening may be enabled to do so, without intruding into another person's pew. I remain, Sir, Your obedient servant, ONE WHO WANTS A PEW. Huddersfield, July 1st., 1850. - The Boston Herald notes a case of Snow in June; a slight fall having occurred lately at Lincoln. The English engineer, Fairbairn, has just arrived at Stockholm, on his way toSt. [toast] Petersburgh, [Petersburg] the Emperor wishing him to construct a tubular bridge in Russia. A movement is on foot amongst the electors of the Fal- [Al- Falkirk] kirk District of Burghs to induce the earl of Lincoln to resign his seat, with a view to a new election. James, the novelist, embarked at Southampton for New York, on Thursday, with his family, on a mission to esta- [east- establish] blish [bliss] 2 copyright system with the United States. Several deer were observed, lately, swimming across Loch Toridon [Trading] at low water, a distance of about two miles ; an unusual occurrence. At Rennison's Bath, Bristol, a celebrated diver, last week, jumped from an elevation of 80 feet, with a pair of boots in his hands, which, before rising to the surface of the water, he had pulled on to his feet. The public walks (25 miles in length) around the improv- [improve- improving] ing and busy town of Nottingham were opened on Monday. The ceremony was not so numerously attended as might have been expected, owing to the badness of the weather. The gossips of a town not far from Edinburgh have had ample scope for scandal for the last few days, in a most distressing event which has occurred in the family of a rev. gentleman, whose wife has abandoned home, husband, and family for a foreigner, with whom she has eloped. The Allany [Allan] Evcning [Evening] Journal says Large numbers of emigrants continue to from New York, on their way tothe [tithe] Far West. among unusual num- [sum- number] ber [be] of English families, mostly farmers, who will find, in our vast West, a rich return for their industry and skill. Gicastic [Gigantic] Fosstt [Foster] DEER.-Skeletons of that noble animal, the Cervus [Nervous] Gigantews [Giants] Hibernicus, [Hibernian] have been found in dif- [if- different] ferent [front] parts of Britain. An entire one was dug up in the Isle of Man (from a bed of marl), which measured six feet in height, nine feet long, and nine feet and a half to the top of its horns. Manchester Guardi A London correspondent of the Manchester Guardian, writing on Friday, nays, Yesterday a meeting took place at Lord Stanley's, when Mr. Gladstone was formally in- [installed] stalled as the protectionist leader in the House of Com- [Commons] mons, after shaking hands with Mr. Disraeli, who consents to act under him as his second. The Hampshire Independent says We understand that the will of late Henry Robinson Hartley, Esq., was proved in Doctors' Commons on Thursday, and the property sworn under 99,000, the interest of the greater part of which princely sum will eventually come into the hands of the corporation of Southampton, for the promotion of literary and scientific purposes. A vegetarian convention has been held in New York. Dr. Sylvester Graham and Dr. Wieting [Waiting] had an animated and not a very good-tempered discussion. The Evening Post says it had supposed that the effect of the vegetable diet was to make men as meek and gentle as lambs, but it would seem from the proceedings that there is some of the old Adam left even in brown bread and sweet apples.

The will of the general was disputed ; but, after much ligitation, [litigation] the matter has been ultimately decided, and Mr. Charles Whitney's share of the property will be about 30,000 dollars. He will shortly return to his native country. 5 -Goat.-A person in Largo (says the Northern Witch wa kel [Kiel] heard it affirmed that rats would dis- [inhabited] inhabit premises where a goat was kept, had the curiosity to try the experiment, though with but little faith in the recommended antidote. Accordingly, one of these long- [long bearded] bearded mountaineers yas [as] procured, 4 ee sre [are] the lo Ly wen, to oad.

A HovsEBREAKING [Housebreaking] Horse.-On Friday, a horse brought into Glasgow from Bothwell a cart of furni- [furnish- furniture] ture, [true] and being put into a Stable in Drygate, [Frigate] after taking a short time to rest, to ponder over the way ou again. The wall of the stable offered no great obstacle, and so the annimal [animal] pushed it. over, and walked into the ad- [adjoining] joining appartment, [department] which was occupied as a two-loom shop. Finding no person at work on the looms, the animal deemed it wisest to move forward, through one of webs, looms, and all other obstacles, which he accomplish ushing [using] down a second wall in his course, which brought fim [firm] into alobby. [Libby] Not acquainted with the usual mode of egress from such buildings, and disliking the lobby quite as much as the stable or the weaving shop, he turn again, passed through the second web, broke the secon [second] loom, and thrusting a third wall out of his way, pared into the kitchen of one of ee houses, and Penne a uarters [quarters] in that locality, he seemed sa L a ia found deeply engaged in examining its utensils, The horse was not injured, although he inflict d consi [cons] able damage in his Courier. UAL [AL] CURE OF A SEVERE COUGH WITH ASTHMA py Prtis.-Mr. [Prats.-Mr] John Davies, of Lica [Lice] street, Milford, was afflicted for more than seven years wit a most inveterate asthmatical [Asthmatic] cough, which several eminen' [eminent] ons, [on] under whose care he had been at various times, not relieve; he then resolved upon ti Holloway s pills, and fortunately he did, for this superior medicine eftected [effected] a perfect cure. The cough has ceased, the is rarer, and his respiration is as free as that of fhe [he] i person. Old coughs, colds, whee on e chest, and shortness of breath may soon be by Hol- [Ho- Alcohol] co loway's [lower's] pills. HOW ARE COTTAGE OWNERS AND COTTAGE DWELLERS AFFECTED BY THE GAS QUESTION Tus [Us] is a question which numerous class; and, in its proper discussion and solution, they are by no means slightly interested. To give them a few ideas, to aid in that discussion, is the object of the present article. Cottage owners, in Huddersfield, below a certain amount in annual value, are now rendered liable to the Improvement Rate, unless the yearly occupier of each distinct occupation should individually claim to be rated-of which act of claiming more anon. This is not a provision of the Huddersfield Improvement Act, as such; but is one of the enact- [enactments] ments [rents] of the general law applied to Huddersfield. A similar provision is contained in the Public Health Act so that, had his later act been ap- [applied] plied to Huddersfield, instead of the Town's Im- [In- Improvement] provement [improvement] Clauses Act, the position of cottage owners, in this respect, would have been the same. Indeed, of late years, the government have laid down and applied this principle in all acts passed relating to public rates; and, but few years will elapse, ere the cottage owner is rendered liable for all rates on property below a certain annual value. During the present session a bill is passing through parliament,-called the Small Tenements Rating Bill, in which it is enacted that the inhabitants in vestry can cause the owner to be rated to the Poor-rate instead of the occupier that is, a per- [permissive] missive power is given to the vestry to introduce this principle of rating into practice. During the progress of that bill, Sir G. Grey has intimated that government would have supported the bill more cordially had the regulation been comp instead of being only permissive; and he has, also, intimated the intention of government, shortly, to carry that principle into full effect. done do not here enter into the discussion as to propriety or expediency of this regulation. That is a large whieh [which] will admitof [admit of] snack to be said on both sides; but which, for our present purpose, is unnece [unnecessary] All we have at present in view, on this point, is this to show to cottage owners that the principle of rating them for small tenements is a settled one, as far as the govern- [government] ment [men] and parliament are concerned that, whether wisely or unwisely, the principle is in the course of systematic introduction; and, that a short period only will elapse, ere the whole of the rates of the country are placed on that footing. We do this, firstly, to show that this regulation is not one pecu- [Peru- peculiar] liar to Huddersfield alone, but to all towns where the general laws of the land, relative to sanitary regulation, are in operation and, secondly, to show how futile any efforts would be to get rid of this regulation and how unwise and foolish it would be to enter on a blind and indiscriminate opposition to the law which contains this provision or to seek to prevent its successful working in other respects. The more enlightened course will be to get all the good possible out of the measure, at the least possible cost; and above all, and before all, if it makes provision for any source of public snags in aid of the rates, to render this of fall avail. The same reasoning will also apply to the cottage occupier. In many instances, we hear, that theowners [the owners] of this class of tenements have, after paying the Im- [In- Improvement] provement [improvement] rate to the rate collector, demanded the amount from their tenants. This, (unless a special agreement existed to authorise it), they certainly had no legal right to do. The law has rendered this rate a debt on the owner, for which he, and he only, is liable; and he has legally as much right to call on his tenant to pay his shoe-bill or his bread- [readable] bill, or to refund to him these amounts when paid, as he has to call upon him, (in the absence of special agreement), to refund the amount of rate paid. Of course, if the tenant claims to be rated, it is another matter; and it is also another matter if the rent paid be considered by the owner to be too low. In the first case, the owner would be relieved from the liability while the tenant was so rated and paid the rates; and in the other case; the usual mode can be resorted to to make a new bargain. That remedy a cottage-owner always has in his own hands and it would be safer for him to exercise it, than for him to make demands which are illegal, and which he could not by lawful means enforce. Be this as it may, however, whether it be in consequence of claiming to be rated, or by repaying to the owner of his tenement what he may have paid, or by means of enhanced rent, certain it is that many of the cottage occupiers do pay the Im- [In- Improvement] provement [improvement] rate; and any mode, therefore, by which the amount of this rate could be reduced, would of necessity be a relief to the parties so circumstanced. Should there be in the Act any means of creating a public income in aid of the rates, it would be clearly to the benefit of this class, as well as to the cottage-owners, that such income should be re- [realised] alised [realised and it is no less clear that to this end should the efforts of the parties so deeply interested be directed-and not to measures of unnecessary un- [unproductive] productive opposition or obstruction. But the interest of the cottage-dwellers in this gas question is even greater than this. The com- [comfort] fort and convenience of their dwellings, so far as artificial light is concerned, are involved. Gas, when supplied pure and of good illuminating qua- [quality] lity; [city] when more regard in the selection and pur- [our- purchase] chase of coal is had to the quality of the article produced for light, than to produce good coke-for a coal which will produce the latter, will not produce a pure gas; and when the best means that science has applied for the purification of the hydrogen evolved, are properly used gas, when produced under these conditions, and supplied at the lowest price consistent with such production and its after distribution, is the best, the most cheerful, and the cheapest light that modern science has made us acquainted with. The necessity of light to make either a home or a place of assembly cheerful, has long been acknowledged in practice. What is it which makes our theatres and our gin-shops so attractive in appearance The tasteful combina- [combine- combinations] tions [tins] of colour and skill, and the strong lights by seriously concerns a which these are set off to the best advantage. Of what avail would be the painter's art, by which with a few brushes and pots of common whitewash colour, he can produce so close an imitation of the natural landscape, as almost to deceive the eye into the belief of its reality; but of what avail would this art be, without artificial light to make its effects apparent So also in other places of public resort. To render them cheerful-to make them attractive-to render them pleasing to the sense of sight-the first essential is light. This is as true of the church, the chapel, and the place of general public assembly, as it is of the theatre or the in palace. The same principle holds good of home- [home the] the domestic home, as it does of these public places. A room may be tastefully fitted up-or it may be plainly but neatly arranged; its walls may be covered with paper of costly design and otherwise ornamented-or they may be stained with a simple but clean colour x may have cost fu rniture, [furniture] lendid [splendid] carpets, and every article betokening taste and or it may have its brightly polished chest of drawers and clockcase, [clock case] its elm chairs, and its scoured floor so scrupulously clean that you could eat off it; but what would all this avail in either case without light It is light which brings the beauties and comforts that home possesses out to view that enables us to appreciate them-to drink them in as it were with the eye, and to revel in their enjoyment and, without light, they would be as if they were not in existence. Well, then, gas being the best, the cleanest, the purest, and the chea [cheap] est a artificial light yet produced (when supplied under proper conditions), can any reason be shown why THE HOMES of the cottage- [cottage dwellers] dwellers should not have the benefit of gas illumi- [mill- illumination] nation Is gas only to be made for the factory, the theatre, the mansion, the church, the gin palace, the shop, and the home of the man of middling means Why should not the workman, when he has executed his day's work, go to enjoy himself in a well lighted home Why should his abode alone be gloomy, dingy, dark -the only light afforded to enable him to see the darkness, being that pro- [proceeding] ceeding [feeding] from afarthing [anything] dip How is it that Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field is so far behind other towns in this particular How is it that here gas in the cottage is a rarity, instead of being the rule In other parts it is dif- [if- different] ferent. [front] In many of the towns in Scotland, and in some of our English towns, gas has been intro- [introduced] duced [duce] into almost every workman's residence. In Dundee and in Glasgow, gas in dwellings is all but universal while in Manchester, in Live 1, and in other towns which could be named, the fitting up of cottages with gas has been practised very extensively. But, perhaps, the most signal exam- [example] ple [le] which could be produced of the success of this rinciple, [principle] accompanied by a regulation we shall pereafter [hereafter] notice at more length, is that of Devon- [Devonport] port, where the gas company have acted in a truly liberal manner and where they have by a wise, and at the same time profitable arrangement, enabled enlightened engineer of the Devonport Gas Com- [Company] pany. [any] He says, writing to the editor of the Journal I will, with your permission, make a few remarks upon the working of a system adopted by the Devonport Gas Company in May, 1847, for the supply of fittings, &c., at an annual rental. This measure was introduced to induce the use of gas for private and domestic uses, so as to in- [increase] crease the consumption (which was then almost stationary), and by this means enable the company to reduce the price of without loss to 5s. per 1000 cubic feet. he inhabitants of this town have availed themselves very generally of the advantages thus held out, and the result has been so large an increase in the supply of gas that the amount of profit was greater upon the year's working, although the price was less by Is. per 1000 cubic feet. The quantity of gas used from June 1, 1846, to May 31, 1847, was 10,134,500 cubic feet at 6s. per 1000 pro- [produced] duced [duce] a rental of 3,040 7s. From June 1, 1847, to May 31, 1848, the quantity of gas used was 13,642,750 at 5s. per 1000 cubic feet, produced a rental of 3,411 8s, 9d., being an increase in the year's consumption of 3,508,280 cubic feet of gas, equal to 34 per cent. The rental charged for the use of the fittings, &c., was at the rate of 73 per cent. per annum; and the opinion of the directors and the company may be gathered from the following extracts from their report presented to a general meeting of shareholders held on the 29th of J une, [one] 1848 - To encourage and extend the use of gas in private houses, your directors make known to you their determination to adopt the system of supplying gas fittings at an annual rental. This system has now been in operation for twelve months they are enabled to state that it has in every way realized [realised] the expectations held out; and your directors believe that it has greatly assisted in contributing to the prosperous state of the company's affairs. It is the intention of the directors to continue this system under certain modifications. They have thought proper to give parties the option of purchasing their fittings in eight consecutive quarterly instalments, whereby it is expected that fresh applicants, who are found continually to present themselves, may be supplied with fittings with- [without] out materially increasing the amount of capital already engaged in this department. 'So well do I think of the system that I would strongly recommend all companies to adopt it. The amount of rental to be charged is quite immaterial, as the profit to be derived from the gas supplied by these fittings will be ample to cover any charges made upon it. 'Gas companies, I am convinced, will find it to their interest to supply the necessary fittings at an annual rental or at the cost price. It will enable them to meet the calls made them for reduction of price, and will tend materially to promote the comfort and safety of the con- [consumer] sumer, [summer] In Liverpool the fittings are supplied exclusively by the company, and the consuption [consumption] of gas has been un- [unequalled] equalled, and the present low charge for gas is the result. 'Reduction of price increases demand; increased demand increases profits increased profits, again, enable prices to be reduced and again, reduced prices increases the de- [demand] mand, [and] thus benefiting reciprocally companies and con- [consumers] sumers [Summers] Remove the obstacles now existing to the use of gas in the cost of gas fittings, and this increased demand will be speedily brought about. In a subsequent communication to the same Journal, Mr. Hepury [Henry] says that for the year ending May 31, 1849, the consumption of gas had extended to 15,366,650 cubic feet or nearly double what it was in 1847, before the principle of supplying fit- [fit] ti at a rental, or at cost price, was introduced, and before the price was reduced to 5s. for 1000 cubic feet, Thenatural [The natural] effect following upon wiseand [wise and] judicious reductions in the price 'of gas are well expressed by Mr. Hedley-a man of experience and judgment; and we hope that his testimony, drawn from ex- [experience] perience, [Prince] will be considered by those who have contended that with our gas at 4s. per 1000 there is no margin for profit; and that our Company are now all of a sudden become so generous as to give to gas-consumers the whole benefits attending the gas-manufacture and supply. By so considering such testimony they will see whether we have not had reason for contending that the profits to the suppliers will be greater with gas at 4s. per 1000 than they were at 5s. per 1000, if the advantage of such reduction be really afforded to the consumer. Here then is a mode indicated by which the dwellers in cottages can be enabled to realise the benefits of gas-light in their own homes; a mode, which, while it would secure to them a comfort and a luxury, would also materially increase the con- [consumption] sumption of gas, and, as a consequence, enhance the profits of the party supplying it. On former occasions we have shown the benefits resulting to the ratepayers of Manchester, Salford, Rochdale, and Keighley, from the gas-works of these respective places being in the hands of their public authorities. We have shown that in Man- [Manchester] chester, 40,0007. a year is realized, [realised] and spent in public improvements, saving that amount in tHe [the] pockets of the ratepayers; in Salford, more than 6,0007. is thus realized; [realised] in Rochdale, more than 2,000 .; [2,W] and in Keighley, the town is lighted and watched, and other public expenses paid, without one penny of rate being paid by the ratepayers. We have, also, shown that in Huddersfield a similar effect would follow from a similar cause; that the profits resulting from the supply of cheap gas to every house,-and every house ought to have the benefit of the best and cheapest light science can produce-would render Improvement Rat nearly unnecessary; and that manifold benefits would thus be secured, viz. the benefit of good light for the cottage dwellers, increasing their com- [comforts] forts, and making home cheerful; creating a pub- [public] lic [li] income for general public improvement, by a mode at once easy and unobjectionable, because it would be a real relief to the ratepayers,-taking that which now goes into the pockets of private monopolists to pay the public rates; and securing, also, the effecting of public improvements, on an extensive scale; because they could be accom- [com- accomplished] plished [polished] without being a burden to the ratepayers. As the owners of cottage dwellings have Im- [In- Improvement] provement [improvement] Rates to pay, they clearly are interested in the proper settlement of this gas question; in that mode of settlement which will ease them of those rates. And, as the dwellers of cottages have (many of them) rates to pay, they, also, are interested in this question for a similar reason; and are also, called upon, by duty to themselves, to aid in bringing about, if possible, the result above described. This they can do at the election for Improvement Commissioners, which will take place in September next. On that occasion the single endeavour should be to elect men who will secure for the public the full benefits of the gas-supply who will secure the public income now pocketted [pocketed] by a private company of monopolists. All other questions should, for the present, give way to this for upon this depends the other question whether the rates for public im- [in- improvements] provements [movements] shall be comparatively heavy or light. To those who live in houses of 10 annual value and under, and who have had the Improvement Rate to repay, we would say claim to be rated for then you will also have the vote. It is true such act of claiming will cause you to have to pay the rate; but you may as well pay it direct to the Commissioners' collector as to any body else; and if you do pay at all, you may as well be in a position to be able to exercise the franchise. This you can secure by claiming to be rated but not else. To facilitate these claims we here give a form, which will only need to be copied out, signed, and sent to the Commissioners' offices any time during the next fourteen days; and that course will secure the vote for the next election. That form is - ' To the Huddersfield Improvement Commissioners. Gentlemen, I hereby give you notice that I claim to be rated for the premises I occupy, situate in here name the street, or place.

Huddersfield, 1850. ---- ---- ROBBERY AND MURDER IN NORTHAMPTONSHIRE.- [NORTHAMPTONSHIRE] Considerable excitement was produced N ton, on Thursday morning, by a report that Mr. Josep arren, [Warren] of Earl's Barton, near N orthampton, [Southampton] had been robbed and murdered the previous night on Boughton Green. It ap- [that] that he had been found, dead or dying, under a tree upon the Green, with his pockets cut and rifled. Deceased was seen about five-and-twenty minutes past ten o'clock, to leave the portion of the Green occupied by the booths and stalls, and proceed, in company with a female, in the direction of a hedge on the Boughton side. Two men were observed, as though following and whatching [watching] him. At about a quarter to eleven o'clock, the police patrol dis- [discovered] covered the deceased, insensible, lying under a beech tree, near the hedge, towards which he had a few minutes pre- [previously] viously [obviously] been seen to go. He was lying on his face, which appeared to be pressed into the dust, with which it was covered, his mouth and nostrils being also filled with dust. He never stirred after he was found, but groaned once and died immediately. No noise had been heard in that direc- [direct- direction] tion [ion] since he was last seen, there was no blood, no indica- [India- indications] tions [tins] of a struggle having taken place, and but very trifling appearance of externalinjury. [external injury] He was removed immediately to the police station on the Green. His waistcoat was unbuttoned, his dress disordered, and his trousers ockets [pockets] rifled, one of them being turned inside out. A descrip- [Scrip- description] tion [ion] having been obtained of the female, with whom he had been seen, a woman answering that description was apprehended the same night at Kingsthorpe. [Kingston] Of the men spoken of no clue has ve been obtained. It was suspected that chloroform had been used; but the police- [policemen] men, who put their faces to that of deceased, to ascertain if he breathed, did not remember any peculiar smell from his nostrils or mouth. The medical evi [vi] ence [once] at the inquest showed that the cause of death was congestion of the lungs, produced by suffocation or strangulation, to effect which violence must have been used.-The jury, after a long con- [consultation] sultation, [station] returned a verdict of W murder et some person or persons unknown, -Northampton Herald. The proposed substitution of an annual per centage [agent] of 24 per cent. on each transfer of property, in place of the customary fee of 2s. 6d. under the trustees of the late Sir John Ramsden, Bart., has caused considerable interest amongst the managers and members of building societies in this town and neighbourhood, whose pro- [property] perty [petty] is likely to be very materially affected by the change, and has ultimately resulted in the convening of a mecting [meeting] to adopt such steps as might be deemed expe- [exe- expedient] dient [diet] under the circumstances. Circulars were accord- [accordingly] ingly [ingle] issued to the respective building clubs in the town, and their representatives assembled at the Albion Hotel, Buxton-road, on Monday evening last, when the following gentlemen were present -Messrs. Joseph Turner, James Brook, E. Clayton, J. Reid, C. Johnson, Cooper, James Sheard, James W. Clarke, Joseph Benson, Henry Wormald, J. Broadbent, E. Walker, George Crowther, Atkinson, R. Armitage, Lee Dyson, Hiley, B. Stanley, Joseph Bottomley, E. Hill, W. J. Johnson, R. Hill, J. Hellawell, E. Harling, John Broughton, Booth, Hepponstall, B, Carter, John Brook, Thomas Robinson, and P. N. Walker. On the motion of Mr. Wormald, seconded by Mr. Ro- [Robinson] binson, [Benson] Mr. James Brook was called to the chair.-In opening the proceedings The CuarrMan [Juryman] said he believed they were well aware of the nature of the business which had called them to- [together] gether. [ether] Mr. Robinson had actively taken up the ques- [question] tion, [ion] and placed it before the inhabitants of the town and neighbourhood, and ultimately issued the circulars convening this meeting. The business to come before them was of a very grave and weighty character. It was intended by the agents of the Ramsden estates to make some small advance upon the tenant-right pro- [property] perty [petty] whenever that property was transferred, whether to the club, the mortgagee, or the purchaser that being the case it would seriously affect the interest of the clubs, especially in the case of parties desirous of bor- [or- borrowing] rowing money upon any tenant-right property which they might have upon this estate, now that there was to be a permanent advance of ground rent charged for such accommodation. That being the case, the interest of clubs would be largely affected, because any one hav- [have- having] ing a cottage-house of his own, which could be held as se- [security] curity, [purity] would be debarred from obtaining a loan of money owing to the reluctance the clubs would experience in accepting such security. Besides, the value of tenant- [tenant right] right property would be depreciated in the estimation of the officers of the club, from the knowledge that there would not be that security of tenure which they had formerly expected and, therefore, clubs would not be so ready to take tenant-right property as security for money advanced as had hitherto been manifested. Now, their meeting there that night was to consider the adoption of the best means in order that they might prevail upon the managers and agents of this estate to return to their former practice but this object should be pursued calmly and dispassionately. They were aware that those who were without leases had no real bona fide [side] security-they simply relied on the honour of the owners of this estate. Hitherto this honour had been considered unimpeachable. He thought that mcans [means] might be adopted to lay the circumstances of the town and neighbourhood before the trustees and agents of the Ramsden estates, to induce them to adhere to the prac- [pray- practice] tice [ice] which had hitherto been observed. Having made these remarks by way of introducing the subject, the Chairman intimated that there would be submitted a series of resolutions which he trusted would receive due consideration, and be discussed without any angry expression, or warmth of feeling, but be entered upon with calmness and deliberation. Mr. WorMALD [World] moved the first resolution, which was as follows - That this meeting is greatly concerned at being informed of the new arrangements adopted by the trustees of the late Sir John Ramsden, Bart., relative to the advance of 23 per cent upon the rent of all tenant-right buildings erected on the Huddersfield estate (instead of the usual transfer fee), whenever such buildings may be required to be transferred either to purchasers or mortgagees, being fully persuaded that such a departure from that ancient custom of keeping faith with building tenants, which has hitherto been so honourably observed by the Ramsden family, is calculated, very materially, not only to lessen the confidence of the public in all such tenant-right pro- [property] perty, [petty] but also to check that enterprising spirit which has characterised the working population ot this town and neighbourhood in their endeavours to obtain a suitable dwelling-house of their own. Mr. RicHanp [Reaching] Brook seconded the resolution. He believed that if the trustees would take this matter into their consideration, they would find the old practice most profitable. If they departed from this custom they would find, to their loss, that no one would lay out a single sixpence upon their property. Mr. Hitey.-Has [White.-Has] this meeting any really authenti- [authentic- authenticated] cated [acted] cases where advances have been made Mr. Ropryson [Prison] had had several conversations with of- [officers] ficers [officers] of Building Clubs, during which these new altcra- [ultra- alterations] tions [tins] were spoken of, and some had said, Have you heard of the new alteration they have made at Longley Hall They are doing away with the fee of 2s. altogether, and you will only have 6d. to pay in future. So he made inquiries, and learnt that Mr. Hathorne [Hawthorn] had re- [received] ceived [received] instructions from head quarters that in all cases of transfer an addition of two-and-a-half per cent. on the rental be paid upon all property. He then applied to Mr. Jabez Brook, who was connected with several large clubs in the town, and that gentleman confirmed this view of the case. He applied to others with the same result. He had gone further than that, and learnt from good authority, that this was so. Mx, Jonn Brook corroborated what Mr. Robinson had said. My. Richard Jackson attended at Longley Hall to have some property transferred, and this was named to him. He objected to it, and entered into a conversation with Mr. Hathorne [Hawthorn] to show him the disadvantages which would accrue personally. Mr. Hathorne [Hawthorn] agreed to let the matter stand over, but as yet, however, no- [nothing] thing had been done. The resolution was then put and carried unanimously. Mr. SaMvuEL [Samuel] HILEy [Haley] rose to move the second resolu- [resolute- resolution] tion, [ion] which was as follows -- This meeting is of opinion that should this new arrange. ment [men] of the trustees and agents of the estate be persevered in, buildings will cease to be erected upon such security for the future and as the means of the working class generally are so limited, that they will be unable to raise the amount of a lease in addition to the expense of building a cottage, besides the advanced ground rent usually charged upon leasehold buildings and plots; and their hard earned earn- [earnings] ings which, in many instances, they have been twenty years in accumulating, in order to have a house of their own, will be otherwise spent. He was certainly of opinion, from what he had heard of the amount of advance, that it would not only injure the individual immediately concerned-that is, persons who had property on this estate-but the town gene- [generally] rally, and thought it behoved every inhabitant, whether he had a building or not, to lift his voice against this encroachment upon the usages of the town. Mr. JouNn [Jonn] JOHNSON seconded the resolution. In doing so he expressed his concurrence in the opinions of Mr. Hiley. The alteration would have the tendency to deprive many working men of the advantages of build- [building] ing a house, knowing that they could not obtain friends to be security for them. If carried out it would have a tendency to deprive these men of privileges they had previously enjoyed. On being put the resolution was unanimously adopted. Mr. E. moved the third resolution, to the following effect- [effect this] This meeting is of opinion that an advance of ground- [ground rent] rent, charged upon the transfer of tenant-right property, will so far indispose individuals to build houses, that a large class of artisans, who obtain their living by the erec- [ere- erection] tion [ion] of buildings, will be thrown out of employment, and the prosperity of the town and neighbourhood will be seriously impaired in consequence. He thought the stewards of Sir John Ramsden had lost sight of the advantges [advantages] which these building societies had conferred upon the estate; for he was within bounds when he said that two-thirds of the town had been built by such societies. To the first club of this kind in Huddersfield, established at the Woolpack, [Wool pack] Sir John Ramsden had presented 50. Now it was evident that he conceived building societies would be of service to him, by making his property more valuable. How, then, these gentlemen had got this addition of 5 per cent. (which it really would be in the end,) into their heads, he (Mr. Clayton) could not conceive. The working classes had a desire to prepare themselves a home and a support in old age, and by entering a money club, or building society, they contributed a por- [or- portion] tion [ion] of their weekly earnings, which would probably have otherwise been spent without any benefit in re- [return] turn. They could not afford to pay, in addition to the five per cent. to the society, and the bonus, a further sum of two-and-a-half per cent. One of the DELEGATES said that a friend of his had held a conversation with the agents of the estate, who replied that it was preposterous to suppose that there would be a charge of two-and-a-half per cent. upon re- [releases] leases in addition to the per centage [agent] on transfers. Mr. Hit. was told that for each transfer he would have to pay two-and-a-half per cent., and he knew a case where more than one transfer had been made, and the party having to pay the additional two-and-a-half per cent. Mr. CLayton [Clayton] thought they were placed in an inferior position to surrounding towns. He had been at Brad- [Bradford] ford the other day, and found upon inquiry that up Horton lane, where there was about sixteen houses partly finished, just above which was another row of sixty-two houses-that every one of them stood upon their own freehold, at 1s. 6d. per square yard purchase. Now just contrast that with the present rental of the Huddersfield estate, without the addition of two-and-a- half or ultimately five per cent. The resolution was adopted unanimously. . The CHarrmMan [Chairman] then suggested that a committee should be formed to act as a deputation to the agents of the Ramsden estates, and to prosecute the business to the utmost. . Mr. H. Rozsuck [Roebuck] proposed the following resolution. e following gentlemen, namely, Messrs. William Moon P. Edward C m, James Brook, Jabez Brook, Henry Wormald, John Johnson, James Sheard, David Hirst, William James Clarke, Joseph Ben- [Benson] son, Edwin Walker, Richard Hill, and Thomas Robinson, be appointed a deputation to wait upon the trustees and vania, [vain] on Monday morning, the 17th ultim.

HUDDERSFIELD, JULY 6, 1850. told in the words of Mr. Tuomas [Thomas] A. Hxptey, [Expert] the HUDDERSFIELD BUILDING SOCIETIES, the transfer of tenant-right on the p . i hitherto been observed; and that they be appointed a committee to carry out the foregoing resolutions, or other- [otherwise] wise to act as they may think the most advisable under the circumstances. Mr. Joun [John] Brook had very great pleasure in second- [seconding] ing the resolution, as the gentlemen named were very appropriate, and he would leave the matter entirely to them. Mr. HILt [Gilt] proposed, as an amendment, seconded by Mr. SHEARD,- [SHEARD] That a respectfully-worded memorial should be presented at proper quarters, signed by the president and officers of the respective building and money clubs. Mr. Ropryson [Prison] said it had been intimated to him that a deputation was expected, and he thought it a much more preferable course. The deputation would call upon Mr. Hathorne, [Hawthorn] under the impression that 2 per cent. was to be charged upon each transfer. If such was not the case, Mr. Hathorne [Hawthorn] would inform the depu- [deep- deputation] tation, [station] and thus enable them to act in future. The conversation continued for some time longer, when the amendment was withdrawn, and the original motion carried with one or two dissentients. After a short discussion, as to whether a fewer num- [sum- number] ber [be] than the whole of the committee should be ap- [appointed] pointed as a deputation, the matter was left in the hands of the committee. During the discussion - The CHarrMAN [Chairman] stated, that the best information he could obtain on the subject proved that there was half a million of money subscribed for by the different clubs in the town, the subscriptions amounting toa [to] thousand pounds a week. This large sum would be very materially affected by the proposed alterations, and it was necessary they should adopt energetic measures, in order to secure the prosperity of these clubs and the town and neighbourhood generally. ; The remaining proceedings of the meeting referred to club arrangements for the transfer of property and were of no interest. A vote of thanks was then passed to Mr. Robinson for his attention to this matter. On the motion of Mr. Brook, seconded by Mr. RoBInson, [Robinson] it was unanimously resolved That the thanks of this meeting are due, and that they are now given, to the Editor and Proprietors of the Huddersfield Chronicle for the which they have drawn pub- [public] lic [li] attention to this question. Mr. MicKLeTawaltrE [Micklethwaite] acknowledged the vote on behalf of himself and co-partner, assuring the meeting that whenever occasion offered they should use their utmost endeavours to promote the welfare of the town. The meeting was then adjourned to Monday, the 12th of August; and after a vote of thanks to the Chairman broke up about ten ---- - THE ATTEMPT TO KICK OUT MINISTERS. A WORD FOR OURSELVES AND SELECTIONS FROM THE DIVISION LISTS. As intimated in a third edition of the Chroniele [Chronicle] last week, a division took place on the motion made by Mr. Roebuck, on Saturday morning, at the early hour of four o'clock, the result of which, by the aid of a tele- [tee- telegraphic] graphic express, we laid before our readers in an extra- [extraordinary] ordinary edition at seven the same morning, together with a resume of the speeches of Mr. Cockburn, Mr. Cobden, Sir R. Peel, Lord John Russell, and Mr. Disraeli. The Manchester Guardian, Leeds Times, and Leeds Intel- [Intelligencer] ligencer, [licence] in the editions despatched to this district, did not bring the debate down to its conclusion, and, of course, did not contain the all-important result of the division. The Leeds Mereury, [Mercury] by dint of delaying its Huddersfield parcel nearly two hours beyond the usual time, contained the result of the division, but not a resume of the speeches before-named and the Halifax Guardian did not even mention the important proceed- [proceedings] ings in the house on Friday night, on which depended the fate of Ministers, and the probability of a general election. The Chronicle thus stands in the proud position, among its more ancient contemporaries, professing to represent the Huddersfield district, of being the only paper which contained a resumé [resume] of the speeches, and the result of the division in their Saturday morning edition. We trust that in this, as in previous instances, we have made good our promise, enunciated in the outset of our project, to bring down the general news of our own district, and the momentous matters occurring in the country generally, to the hour of publication. In accomplishing this it must be borne in mind that we labour under many disadvantages in Huddersfield to which our contemporaries in Leeds and Manchester are not subjected. They have a direct means of tele- [tee- telegraphic] graphic communication, while ours has to be forwarded by an expiress [express] messenger, in the one case a distance of 15 miles, or if from Manchester (where we find the tele- [tee- telegraphic] graphic department most complete) some 26 miles, over which there is no unbroken line of telegraphic communication. This, of course, involves us in great pecuniary outlay, besides placing us, in point of time, in a more unfavour- [favour- unfavourable] able position than our Leeds contemporaries but so long as the general public of this district extend to us their kind patronage, those sacrifices will be cheerfully made, in the full confidence that our public spirit will be recognized [recognised] and acknowledged by the large and in- [increasing] creasing number of our friends and patrons. With these explanatory remarks, which we felt due to ourselves to place on record, we now proceed to lay before the public a selected list of those members who, being locally connected with this district, or dis- [distinguished] tinguished [distinguished] as party leaders, voted for or against Mr. Roebuck's motion. The motion, we may add, was in the following terms That the principles on which the foreign policy of her Majesty's government has been regulated have been such as were calculated to maintain the honour and dignity of this country; and, in times of unexampled difficulty, to preserve peace between Eng- [England] land and the various nations of the world. -Ayes, 310; Noes, 264.
