4 THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1850. TO THE RATEPAYERS OF HUDDERSFIELD. GENTLEMEN to thank you for the ELOW [LOW] me sincerel [sincere] upon neon placing me a& the head of depot I take it as an approval of my past conduct as a Commissioner, and an indication of the evarse [eaves] I ought ue for the future. t Ten, Gentlemen, Your's respectfully, THOS. P. CROSLAND. TO THE RATEPAYERS OF HUDDERSFIELD. GENTLEMEN, struggle is over. The battle is won; and I am once more placed in the proud position of an Im- [In- Amend] ent [end] Commissioner for the next three years. This pesuit, [pursuit] so unexpected by myself, and so warmly contested by my opponents-whose efforts were mainly directed against wy reiurn-is [return-is] such a palpable indication of your feelings as 06 to be mistaken. y course is clear, and in co-operation with my brother-progressists [brother-Progressives] at the Board, I hope to testify my gratitude for the confidence exhibited, by diligently and fitthfully [faithfully] advocating those measures of improvement, with a strict regard to economy, which are likely to advance the imgerests [interests] and dignity of this rising town. . To my T hold out the hand of friendship. Personal hostility I have always repudiated in public mat- [matters] ters; [tees] and now that the strife is ended, I trust the dignity af the town will manifest itself in a hearty co-operation of af. parties to advance the general interests. Iam, [I am] Gent emen, [men] teful [tel] Servant, omer [more] WM. MOORE. September 5, 1850. TO THE RATEPAYERS OF HUDDERSFIELD. GENTLEMEN, . BEG most cordially to return you my sincere I thanks for the honour you have conferred upon me in me on the New List of Commissioners for the next ears. During such term, if health permit, I will eadeavour [endeavour] to carry out the Improvement Act in all its Bearings in that manner which I deem most desirable for the interests of the Ratepayers, and at all times exercise my judgment and discretion, by adopting that line of policy which will ensure the greatest amount of good at the least possible cost. Iam, [I am] Gentlemen, Your obedient servant, JOHN BROOK. Buxton-road, 6th September, 1850. TO THE RATEPAYERS OF HUDDERSFIELD. GENTLEMEN, . BEG to tender you my sincere thanks for the I honour you have thought proper to confer upon me by electing me one of the Commissioners under the Improve- [Improvement] ment [men] Act. . I farther beg to assure you that it shall be my study to endeavour to the best of my humble abilities to render the Emprovement [Improvement] Act what its name imports, by efficiently, om at the same time with as much economy as ible, [able] earrying [carrying] out its provisions for the public benefit. I look wpon [upon] it that every Commissioner whom you have thought proper to send to that Board, is in honour bound to pay as strict a regard to the disbursements of the public money as they would to their own. With these views and sentiments, I trust that my future [] a Commissioner will tend to confirm you in the opmmion [opinion] that your confidence has not been misplaced. I have the honour to remain, Your obedient servant, SAMUEL ROUTLEDGE. Seedhill, [Seed hill] Sept. 6th, 1850. ELECTION OF IMPROVEMENT COMMISSIONERS. To the Editor of the Huddersfield Chronicle. Bear Sir, . ILL you allow me a little space in the Chronicle of to-morrow to offer my thanks to those gentlemer, [gentlemen] ratepayers of the town, who did me the honour record 419 votes four me as one of the candidates yester- [yesterday] day; and to assure both you and them that although efeated, defeated] I am by no means disappointed at the result. The report industriously circulated that I was not duly ified, [fed] operated, no doubt, prejudicially to my interests. this I have been fully assured. My friends advised me 4 issue a placard contradicting the rumour. I declined. These who knew me I considered would do me the com- [common] mon justice to think that I should not suffer my name to appear as a candidate under false pretences; and as for those who did not know me after many years connection with Huddersfield, I could not expect them to vote for me. Sach [Cash] a contradiction, therefore, appeared unnecessary. or the satisfaction, however, of my friends who did vote for gee, now that the election is over, I so far am induced to eonfirm [inform] the opinion they entertained when tendering their votes, as to state that I was a duly and legally qualified eandulate, [adult] and that if I had been elected I should certainly gave taken my seat this evening. The electioneering suse, such as it was, answered its ob- [object] jet many withdrew votes previously intended for me, under umpression [impression] that it would be throwing votes away, as, if elected, I could not sit. I hope by this time they have Been undeceived. I am satisfied with the result. Five out of the six Rave been elected and if my being returned would at all have had the effect of displacing any of the five with whom mame, [name] as the sixth, was associated, I should have been the first to regret my altered position. If any, it was right shat [that] I should go to the wall. it was due to the three retiring Commissioners first to be eared for. Their return has stamped their past conduct with the approbation of their fellow-townsmen. Fortified by this they will resume their duties with renewed vigour and determination to carry the new Act into operation bona Se. In this theywill [they will] be assisted and encouraged by their two able aad [and] useful colleagues, Messrs. Webb and Routledge. Not the least interesting feature belonging to the day's ings, was the strong leading position my friend Mr. - P. Crosland took up and maintained on the poll through- [through] et the day. This act of the ratepayers spoke unequivo- [enquiry- unequivocally] eally [early] their opinions and views of his policy during his i issi [is] tbe. [the] Whilst this was indeed complimentary, 2nd no doubt will be fully appreciated, it was at the same time only rendering him an act of common justice. it was not too much to expect that Mr. Hayley would be veturned. [returned] He is generally popular, and means well, though és conduct as a Commissioner has been a little crooked aad [and] perverse. Dissociated from such company as he has lately kept at the Commissioners' rooms, in Mr. Luke w, I have not much doubt he will henceforth prove, actmg [act mg] for himself, a useful and respectable working Com- [Commissioner] missioner. Parodying the couplet, as Mr. Hayley is now, Like the last rose of summer, left blooming alone, Luke, his lovely companion, is faded and gone, he will sce [se] the necessity of exercising judgment and acting with decision, and no longer pursue an obstinate course. 'Fo those who voted against me I have only a word to say I am satisfied if they are. If they preferred other can- [can estates] Estates they had a right to indulge their inclination and exercise freedom of opinion, providing only it was not done at the expense of all that is decent and consistent-as in the case of John Sutcliffe, Esquire, Justice of the Peace, and Messrs. Joseph Kaye, Thomas Varley, Thos. Marshall, Henry Charlesworth, Titus Thewlis, with many others, all of whom I am informed preferred Mr. James Brook to any of the six of the list to which I belong, and voted ac- [accordingly] eordingly. [ordinary] Nay, more, the aforesaid John Sutcliffe, Esq., Justice of the Peace, told my informant that he wondered had the presumption (mark the term ih be offer myself, and to think of taking my seat at the Board. The 419 votes polled for me, without anysolicitation [any solicitation] on my part, are safficient [sufficient] answer to this impudent remark. Next year Mr. Sutcliffe will, in his turn, have to render an account of his stewardship, and be called upon to con- [contest] test. the question of presumption either with me or some- [somebody] body else and then we shall see what the Ratepayers say te fim. [firm] But he will be wise in time and retire. in, I say, if these gentlemen prefer casting their votes into the iap [ap] of James Brook, instead of recording them for me or my party, I am content if they are. 'truly, consistency siucerity [security] are splendid properties; but to these Mr. is a partial stranger.' Notwithstanding my defeat, J may and shall be useful, I trust, in a professional point of view, to those of my friends who. are Commissioners, on matters relating to their im- [in- important] pertant [permanent] duties. When I reluctantly consented to stand as a eandidate, [candidate] I conceived the main advantage of my election would be that possibly the Commissioners, or a body of them, at least would be able to advise themselves as to their powers and duties under the act, without having to srouble [trouble] their Law Clerk. For the opinions of that gentle- [gentleman] man I have usually some respect; but not when, asin [sin] alate [late] ease respecting the gas question, it isa got up affair, exidently [evidently] done to suit a party anda [and] purpose. When an Bonest [Bones] opinion is wanted it is not requisite that it should be-elethed [be-elated] in the verbiage of tour sides of foolscap, as it was in the case referred to. Such an opinion might mystify when it failed to convince or to be explicit. From that opi- [pi- opinion] nion [noon] I beg to express my full dissent. I say unhesitatingly that it is unsound in law, repugnant to reason, and ebpoxious [obnoxious] to common sense. Phis my opinion deliberately expressed, will by-and-bye be proved and acted upon but not, I fear, till the old keaven [heaven] is effectually purged from the present body of com- [Commissioners] mussioners. [missioners] Let the ratepayers do their duty next year in the same energetic and praiseworthy manner they did yesterday, and let the Huddersfield Chronicle still'continue to act the same noble and independent part it has hitherto ene in town's affairs, and my prediction will be verified. Iam, [I am] Sir, Yours faithfully. Cc. 8. FLOYD. Huddersfield, September 6, 1850.

To effect this important object to the best advantage and with the least inconvenience, there are no means which can be adopted so secure and so beneficial as that of Life Assurance, which is now brought within the means of every working man. The weekly or monthly payments required are so small that every man may afford his shxpence [sixpence] or shilling per week, and thereby have the great and happy consolation of thinking that he has made such a provision for his widow and family as will revent [recent] them from being a burthen [Burton] upon others, when may deprive them of his support.

THE CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 18650. 3 yment [payment] THE LATE ELECTION. On Thursday last, the ratepayers under the Hud- [HUD- Huddersfield] dersfield [Huddersfield] Improvement Act nobly performed their duty. As was to be anticipated, they showed by their voting on that day that those whose only obj ect [act] was to bolster up monopoly and obstruct the progress of reform and improvement found small favour in their eyes. In all communities there are to be found those who are emphatically and appropriately termed the low party; men, low in intellect, low in judgment; low in apprehension ; low in idea; and consequently low in condition. These, however, have their appropriate types or representatives, who are occasionally thrown on to the surface by the upheavings [Evans] of society. Their appearance however is only transient; for they speedily sink by their inherent gravity into the insignificance from whence they momentarily arose. So in the contest which has just terminated. We have had, for a short period, fitting types of this limited class paraded before our eyes, startling by their novelty, and exciting surprise at their assurance. Their doom, however, has been signi [sign] ficantly [significantly] read by those whose suffrages they sought ; and they return to their former condition unre- [under- unregulated] gretted, [greeted] unnoticed, and almost unknown. As was intimated in our last journal, the strug- [struck- struggle] gle [ge] of Thursday was one between the principles of progress and the puny efforts of a diminishing party of obstructionists. This party had been invested with more than ordinary importance by the peculiar circumstances of the day. Monopoly had been assailed, and was endangered. Monopoly, true to its character at all times and in all seasons, strug- [struck- struggled] gled [led] hard for its continued existence; and for the purpose of prolonging its hold, and fortifying its power to extract from the pockets of the public, it took up with, and made use of, instruments which the members of the confederated monopoly would otherwise individually have disdained to touch, orbe [ore] associated with. The old adage says that misfor- miser- misfortune] tune makes us acquainted with strange bed fellows; and forcibly was the truth of this adage exemplified in the conduct of many respectable inhabitants of Huddersfield on Monday last. It was a most humiliating sight to see some of these constrained, from of fancied danger to private interests, to walk up to the poll, and record their votes for men whom they in their hearts despised. It was humiliating to witness it. It must have been self-humiliating to do it. And yet in many, very many instances, this was the case. For several months the monied influence of the inte- [inter- interested] rested confederacy had been at work; every engine and power that could be brought to bear was set in action every means that ingenuity could devise, or cunning prompt, were resorted to, to secure the object aimed at. We could tell of instances where parties have been pestered into compliance with the wishes of the alarmed monopolists and of others where conscience was violated, and independence the borrowing system, so far as the amount to be 22 trampled in the dust. But all availed not the extensive preparations went for nothing. The secret meetings, the under plottings the pressing visits the monied influence all these were but as dust in the balance, when the real merits and. pre- [pretensions] tensions of the party came to be weighed. When the touchstone of enlightened popular approval was - applied, the dase [ease] metal was at once detected, and properly cast aside. Respecting the parties to the contest, it is not our intention much to individualize. We have on former oecasions [occasion] had to do this - or any and more than we. could have wished; but aa the party in question was put forward to be the mouthpiece for the rest--we mean. of the confederacy im [in] the back-ground-the finders of the cash-we felt that our duty to the inhabitants of Huddersfield called upon us to do what we had otherwise no taste for. To have tradicted-to' [contradicted-to] pour forth his misrepresentations unrebuked, [rebuked] would have been criminal neglect for however outrageous and improbable a story may be, oft repetition and bold assertion will cause it to pass.current m [in] some circles. To stem the torrent of vulgar abuse and reckless assertion evidently setting in, and which was intended to sweep down in its course true respectability and talent, and worth, we had to encounter individuals whom other- [otherwise] wise we should have despised, and scorned to notice. The result has justified our course. From the ignorant and vulgar appeals to the inveterate pre- [prejudices] judices [justices] of oneclass [one class] and to thelow [throw] passions of another class we appealed to the supameEntT [supplement] of the thinking public; we adduced facts; we gave reasons; we employed argument the result has been that the verdict of the public has been most unmistakeably, most emphatically, and most triumphantly pro- [pronounced] nounced [announced] in favour of the principles and views we have by these reasons endeavoured to maintain. . THE TRIAL OF THE OFFICERS OF ORION. The fatal. catastrophe which occurred off Port- [Patrick] Patrick, inthe [another] month of June last, to the passengers and of the above ill-fated vessel will be fresh in the recolleetion [collection] of our readers. It was manifest at the time that gross negligence on the part of the officers of the Orion was the primary cause of the accident-for at the time when the vessel struck on a-rock and hurled a vast number of human beings to an untimely grave the sea was calm, the night clear, and on the whole as favourable to the navigation of a vessel as could be desired. The immense amount of life destroyed on this occasion, the singular circumstances under which the catastrophe occurred, and the strong presump- [pressure- presumptive] tive [tie] evidence of want of due caution on the part of the officers in command, led to the arrest of the Captain and the first and second mate of the vessel, who were brought to trial on Thursday week, before the High Court of Justiciary, at Edinborough. [Edinburgh] Special defences were lodged for the Captain and second mate, but none for the first mate. In these the Captain alleged that he had gone below to take a rest, leaving the vessel in charge of a com petent [patent] officer and that after this the accident arose, from causes which he could not control. The second mate set forth that he had steered the vessel to the best of his judgment, and that the accident had arisen from the deficient state of the ship's com- [compasses] passes or other machinery and that he, therefore, was not liable. The trial lasted until the Saturday evening- [evening each] each of the prisoners was ably defended by eminent counsel; and the result of the lengthy judicial in- [investigation] vestigation, [investigation] after numbers of witnesses had been called for the defence, was a sentence of eighteen months imprisonment on the Captain, and a trans- [transportation] portation [Corporation] of the mate for a period of seven years the trial, as against the socond [second] mate. From the evidence of practical men, adduced on this trial, it was placed beyond all question that the course of the Orion on the night of the acci- [acct- accident] dent was such as to place the passengers and all on board in imminent danger, and there can be little doubt that on many former occasions the vessel had been navigated in a manner equally culpable. The acdident [accident] arose, it is evident, through a reckleas [reckless] desire on the part of the officers in command to rapid voyage, by keeping closer to the shore than was either recognisable or safe. The night being fine it would seem that the head of the vessel was kept closer to land than usual, in the blind faith that any danger a-head might be easily de- [detected] tected. [tested] In this respect they committed a mistake, and rendered themselves liable to the consequences which have followed on their reckless act. Rapidity of locomotion is, beyond dispute, a matter of the utmost importance, either by land or sea; but a rapidity which places hundreds of human beings and much valuable property in momentary danger of total destruction is neither wise or to be tolerated. That the officers of the Orion made the venture is clear on the face of the evidence, and though we lament the loss of life which has given rise to this judicial enquiry, and although the sentence passed on these two officers be a severe one, we feel confident that the punishment awarded in this case will operate as a caution to the navigators of similar vessels, who stood much in need of some such stern example as a warning against pursuing what is too generally a common practice in the navigation of this class of ships. --- THE MONEY BORROWING SYSTEM. In the last number of the Chronicle there appeared a letter om the subject of borrowing money where- [wherewith] with to effect permanent public improvements, and in answer to an article of our own on the subject, which appeared in the Chronicle of the previous week. The letter we allude to stands in admirable contrast as to tone and argument to the address on which our article was founded though we are far from thinking such argument either sound or conclusive, as we shall presently show. ' We should not, however, have noticed the matter on this occasion, only for an assumption by the writer that the truth of his calculations has been admitted. We beg to say that we have admitted no such thing. We have neither admitted nor 'disputed them. We took them just as we found them for it'did not matter to the argument we were combatting whether the calculations were correct or not. It was the PRINCIPLE we were defending the propriety and the justice of bor- [or- borrowing] rowing money at interest for the execution of permanent improvements, in which the present generation have only a ife-interest. if-interest] This was what we defended-and what we still defend. As for the calculations, we did not even examine them. They may or may not be true. Into that detail we did not enter, only taking the figures given as the basis of an argument to establish the principle. Of course, we know that if we borrow 100 at five per cent interest, we shall have that interest to pay and that the use of the 100 will cost us 5 year; and that if we keep the money for ten years, and then pay it back, we shall have paid back 100 for the principal, and 50 for the interest or UsE [Use] of such principal. The writer, however, contends that, supposing 20,000 was required for the thorough sewerage of the town, it. would be better to lay four rates at-1s. 8d. in the pound, and raise the amount directly from the ratepayers. But this would amount to exactly the same thing in the end as expended is concerned but the difference in the way of immediate burden would be very great. Our with all his powers of calculation, can only be got to calculate the one side. If the ratepayers de pay interest on borrowed money, The prosecution was withdrawn, in the progress of required out of those pockets by heavy rates of 1a, 8d.. in' the pound in addition to all the other 'rates imposed for public purposes, instead of by a number of rates over a long period of time, at 3d. in the pound. The writer says that to compare the borrowing of money for public improvements with the bor- [or- borrowing] rowing of water works companies or building allowed an uncrupulous [unscrupulous] writer to have gone uncon- [union- constituencies] societies, is childish in the extreme. It is easy to tou [to] say this, but another matter to prove it. The prin- [pain- principle] ciple [Copley] is the same in all three cases the only diffe- [differ- difference] rence [rents] that even our correspondent marks, being, that in the latter cases the money is invested in property which brings in an income. So also with sewerage. Money spent in a proper and well- [well devised] devised system of sewerage is invested in property which brings in an income just as much as in the case of water works. Sewerage is as necessary to health and life, and even to comfort and conveni- [convenient- convenience] ence, [once] as water itself. In the absence of sewerage the cost in sickness, in death, in loss of labour, in contributions to sick societies and funeral briefs, to private benevolence, and to the public rates for the maintenance of the sick and the families of the sick and the orphans of the dead, is appalling. The fever tax is the greatest of all taxes-even greater than the interest of that formidable debt which is our correspondent's peculiar aversion. The number annually slain by typhus-a prevent- [preventive] ible [able] disease-has been shown to be greater than the number slain on the field of Waterloo. Sewer- [Sewerage] age, and drainage, and ventilation, and cleanliness, and good living, will prevent typhus, and all other diseases of that class; but good living, without sewerage and theother [brother] adjuncts, will not prevent it. Good living is, however, far more likely to be secured when the physician can be kept out of the house, and when the head of the house can be kept in health and able to work, than when sickness is almost constantly present. Money saved is money gained. Save the fever tax, and you have at once an income which will do more than pay the interest on the money wherewith to effect the requisite sewerage. Into the question of prudence we do not at pre- [present] sent enter. We shall not differ with our cor- [correspondent] respondent's enjoining all prudence in the exercise of a power which, when judiciously used, is bene- [been- beneficial] ficial [official] but which, like all other good, when abused, is hurtful. But we must not throw a good away because it is LIABLE to be abused. If so, we shall have to blot out existence itself, and let all things pass away like a summer's cloud. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Tea Party aT THE VicaRaGE.-On [Vicarage.-On] Monday afternoon last, the parents and children from the Seed-hill National School, together with the children forming the singing classes, were regaled by the worthy vicar, the Rev. Josiah Bateman, M.A., with an ample and excellent tea, at the vicarage, Greenhead-road. There were fivelong [furlong] tables, which were on the lawn in front of the house, and the re- [respective] spective [respective] trays were presided over by Mrs. Bateman and the ladies by whose generosity they had been provided. During the afternoon rural sports of almost every description were introduced, affording infinite sources of amusement and pleasure. The vicar in the course of the evening amused is young friends with a magic lanthern, [lantern] exhibited inside the vicarage. The Doxology was sung, as also God save the Queen, the company standing; and the parents and children returned home, just before dark, highly gratified with their entertainment. this society held their second meeting on Monday evening last, in Mr. Dearden's school-room, Albion-street, when the president (Mr. R. Brook) named and pointed out the classes ofa [of] cere [ere] munaber [number] of pints eRe [ere] which Mr. J. Hanson gave a short lecture on referring chiefly to the pri- [pro- primary] mary [may] strata. He showed a number of specinners [spinners] of grazite, [granite] asbestos, &c., among which was a trilobite, and illustrated by a diagram of Mr. Lyell's scheme of the cotemporaneous [contemporaneous] formation of the different strata, much to the gratification of the persons present. We are gratified tc learn that this society promises to have a considerable accession of mem- [men- members] bers [bees] from the surrounding districts. os Mr. PEacr's [Peace's] GRanD [Grand] CoNncERT.-It [Concert.-It] will be seen by an announcement in this days Chronicle that the above concert has been postponed from October, as originally contem- [cont- contemplated] plated, until Monday, the 30th. [the] of Sept., in consequence of Mr. Sims Reeves, who has been specially engaged, having an 46 rform [from] in Paris at the former period. Tn addition to the above Mr. Peace has secured the services of that ing vocalist Miss Luccomb, [Com] and, in order to make his concert one ofthe [of the] most brilliant of the season, en ments [rents] with other first-rate singers are still pending. It will be seen, also, that an efficient band is promised, and we would enforce on the musical public of the neizhbour- [neighbour- neighbourhood] hood, in the midst of so many and such varied attractions, the necessity of a speedy application for tickets. EXTRAORDINARY SUCKING Pic.-During the past week, an enormous sucking pig, the property of Mr. Thomas Douglas, Mold Green, was slaughtered, and weighed 641b. [b] when dressed. It was of the large breed, and bred from a fine sow in that gentleman's ion-by the boar Peter, the property of Mr. William k, of Swallow-street. HUDDERSFIELD v. WAKEFIELD.-We were compelled, owing to the extreme press of matter in our hands last week, to overlook the notice of this game, which was played on the 28th ult., on Heath Common, Wakefield. The Huddersfield eleven ran 55 and 33, the Wakefield gentle- [gentlemen] men making 113, thus winning in one innings with 25 runs tospare. [to spare] It has been represented to us that the cireum- [cream- circumstances] stances under which this match was played, placed the Huddersfield gentlemen in a very disadvantageous position, The Wakefield gentlemen not being satisfied with extended their boundary, aid into the field local members, played honorary members from Leeds, Pontefract, Nor- [Normanton] manton, [Canton] and Horbury, a district of some cricketing notoriety; thus imposing upon their opponents conditions which they naturally did not anticipate. Apart from this the day past over with the best feeling and enjoy- [enjoyment] ment. [men] JUBILEE OF THE UNITED ANCIENT ORDER OF DruIDs, [Druids] Lopce [Lope] 345.-The [W.-The] twenty-first anniversary of the lodge Briton's Glory, No. 345 of this excellent order, was held on Thursday evening, at the Swan with Two N ecks, [necks] Westgate, (brother John Clayton's,) on which occasion upwards of sixty members and friends from the various neighbouring district lodges sat down to a substantial dinner, served up with great taste and liberality by the worthy host and hostess. After the cloth was removed, a large number of friends fram [farm] other friendly societies in- [increased] creased the company to nearly two hundred. In the absence of P.A. William Hammond, P.A.

John Garner and Brother Thomas Lumb each with a silver as a token of respect and gratitude towards these gentlemen as founders of the society, as also for the active services they had rendered it for a period of twenty-one years. This handsome testimonial of was duly aclenaw. [clean] ledged [ledge] in a feeling speech by Mr. Garner, and the warm thanks of Mr. Lumb. The boxes are of a very unique and chaste description, and bear the inscriptions respectively - Presented to John Garner, P.A., as founder of Lodge 345, U.A.O.D.; 'Presented to Bro. 'Thomas Lumb, a founder of e 345, U.A.O.D. They were obtained of Mr. Heslop, silversmith. In the course of the evening they were handed round the room, and formed the subject of general admiration. The report was presented, from which we gather that the lodge is in a satisfactory position -being possessed of a total fund of 477 lis. [is] 10d. The re- [receipts] ceipts [receipts] for the year were 162 19s. 1d.; and the disbursements 150 3s. 10d.-leaving [d.-leaving] a balance in favour of the society of 12 15s. 3d.-which, considering the heavy year-through which they have passed, leaves cause for congratulation on their favourable position. Eloquent addresses On Friend- [Friendship] ship and Unity, by P.A. Shaw, and 'On the objects and principles of Druidism, by P.A. Crosland, were elivered, [delivered] and much applauded. A party of glee-singers, members of the order, enlivened the evening by their very creditable porformances, [performance] The company enjoyed themselves until a te hour, and parted pleased and instructed by their meeting. , SIGN OF THE TIMES.-We have much pleasure in record- [recording] ing the extensive purchases made in the Leeds; Bradtord [Bradford] Huddersfield, and Halifax markets, by the representative of Messrs. E. Moses and Son, the great tailors. At no previous period were the transactions equal to the macni- [mani- magnitude] tude [tue] of those of the past week, from which our readers may anticipate the great novelties now in preparation for them. BEERHOUSE [Beer house] CONVICTION.-Joseph Mapplestone [Palestine] of the Ropemakers' [Shoemakers] Arms, beerhouse, [beer house] King on remand at the Guildhall, last Tuesda [Tuesday] before Joseph Armitage and W.
