Every ee on must know that Friday was the most convenient for then they were most at liberty. missioner NGLAND [ENGLAND] thought the first object was to day most convenient to the Commissioners at a the day that would secure the best attendance of Commissioners. After that if there were two days sill convenient, then he would say Thursday the ratepayers mig [mi] secured as an bar port as of their proceedings but he they ought to fix the day which would secure the dest [des] attendance. . 'ssioner [sooner] EASTWOOD avowed himself an advocate for of day of meeting, on both the grounds named. Gn the first reason-public bodies should accommodate ech [each] other. When there was no especial reason why they should hold their meeting on a Friday he thought that one Why they should take a He, ij more stress on the other consideration. He did not Sion that they were under any obligation to accommodate the district journals-but there was the Leeds Mercu [Mercury] greulating [relating] extensively the Leeds Times also amongst the jower [Bower] orders and operatives, and in a great many families their peculiar political feeling induced them to take the Teeds [Tees] ntellagencer [intelligence] and Guardean, [Garden] and the Brad- [Brad] r. Now he di in e ratepayers oug [our] fai [fair] of seeing in each of these papers a full report of their proceedings. There was one means-the Huddersield [Huddersfield] Chronicle-of that he was glad-but the Cirovicle [Chronicle] was not read by all families, therefore, he thought that the ratepayers, who read the other papers ought to tae [tea] Clrosicle [Classical] 'Reports a week old were thought ers [es] of the Chronicle Reports a week old wi ade [de] of. He should move as an amendment- That in future the and see nivetings [fittings] of the Com- [Commissioners] missioners be held on the fi y in every month. Commissioner HaYLEY [Haley] seconded the motion. Commissioner CROSLAND was satisfied that every gentle- [gentleman] man knew that Friday was the most convenient day. Wed- [Wednesday] nesday [Wednesday] coming just after the bustle of the market, when urchasers [purchasers] were still in the town, was not so convenient. How would it suit Mr. Booth on a As to the inconvenience of the water-works meeting, that was easily remedied, and it therefore rested solely on the accommoda- [accommodation- accommodation] tion [ion] of the journals. He would be glad to offer them every opportunity which could be afforded for presenting the ratepayers with full reports, but he could not make that a primary consideration. He could assure Mr. East- [Eastwood] wood that however insignificant the Chronicle might appear it was read by thousands and thousands.

After a few remarks from Commissioner ROUTLEDGE, Commissioner Eastwoop [Eastwood] claimed their indulgence for not taving [saving] alluded to the relative suitability of the various days, as it appeared to him that Wednesday was not an ieonvenient [convenient] day, He had no hostility to the Huddersfield Chronicle, and he begyed [begged] leave to state that if he had given Uterance [Temperance] to any language which led any member to think hehad, [head] it was not his intention to have done so.

He liked to see a local paper, and he hoped the Chrowele [Chronicle] would obtain a standing Teas, ear, , and become - to the ratepayers and the proprietors. r Commissioner ENGLAND would certainly like to give the Tatepavers [Ratepayers] a chance, but the primary consideration should be with the Commissioners. mmissioner [mission] CROSLAND said that neither Commissioners Mallinson, Webb, Routledge, or himself could conveniently attend on the Wednesday. Joun [John] Brook had many engagements for night 'lay night, and could not be at liberty on that Commissioner CROSLAND submitted that the reason as- [assent] Tens contemptible.

This event has been anticipated with the usual anxiety and excitement attendantupon [attendant upon] municipal elections. Though of that stirring bustle and con- [coning] ing manceuvring [manoeuvring] of larger boroughs, a deep under current of interest has kept the public oe in constant activity, and presented an all- [all engrossing] engrossing topic of conversation-aye, and speculation too. The first tocsin of the contest was sounded some three weeks ago by the publication of Mr. James Brook's reply to the Chronicle, followed shortly afterwards by the stormy town's meeting, at which Messrs. F. Schwann, Hayley, Luke Swallow, James Brook, Samuel Hirst, and Jonathan Leech were nominated as candidates for the office of Improvement Commissioners. Since then the contest has been a paper one, and the walls have been placarded, and the shops inundated with addresses and counter addresses- [addresses spiced] spiced With squibs and poetry, personal and general, dis- [displaying] playing varied degrees of abuse and egotism. . consequence of Mr. Schwann's positive refusal to serve, if elected, Mr. B. H. Brook was substituted, and the struggle grew warmer and more exciting between the friends of these gentlemen, and those of the six first intro- [introduced] duced [duce] to the public through our columns, viz., Messrs. T. P. Crosland, W. Moore, John Brook, C. 8S. Floyd, 8. Routledge, and J. oseph [Joseph] Webb. Each party was determined to go to the poll, but no organised steps were taken by Mr. Crosland's party towards securing the election though it was well known that Mr. James Brook and his supporters had worked hard in the meantime, through their respective committees, The result was very speculative, the friends of both being sanguine of carrying the election. The polling commenced at nine o'clock on Thursday morning, at the Guildhall, under the presidency of Joseph Brook, Esq., the returning officer. There was but little excitement in the Guildhall, and the proceedings were of a most orderly character. As the different announcements of the state of the poll were issued the interest gra- [ga- gradually] dually increased, and large groups of persons congregated opposite the Post-office and the shop of Mr. Brown, book- [bookseller] seller, awaiting with anxious impatience for the next re- [return] turn-until [until] the last declared the successful candidates, and satisfied their curiosity. We append the returns as they were issued - oan [on] ee Two. Three. 4p.Three. Cls. [Cl] T. P. Crosland. 24 354 424 474 540 W.

Crosland, Esq., headed the poll from the commencement, polling almost deuble [double] the number of the leader of the opposition, Mr, James Brook, who is, with the exception of Mr. Jonathan Leech, placed at the bottom of the poll. The polling closed at four o'clock, and shortly after six Mr. Brook, as returning officer, announced that the dif- [if- differences] ferences [references] betwixt himself and the clerks were so very slight and unimportant that he should declare Messrs .T. P. Cros- [Cross- Cross] land, Joseph Webb, Samuel Routledge, T. Hayley, W. Moore, and John Brook, as duly elected, to serve as Im- [In- Improvement] provement [improvement] Commissioners. T. P. CrosLanp, [Crosland] Esq., returned thanks for the honour they had done him, and moved a vote of thanks to the re- [returning] turning officer for the very straightforward, handsome, and impartial manner in which he had conducted the diffi- [diff- difficult] cult and trying proceedings of the day. Mr. JAMES BROOK rose, but spoke in so low a tone of voice as to render his remarks very indistinct. We under- [understood] stood him to say that though he was a defeated candidate he did not feel dispirited. He believed he was in the hands of Divine Providence, and therefore his mind was calm as regarded the results of that day. (Laughter.) He had the satisfaction of looking back to the result under the conscious- [consciousness] ness that no unbecoming sentence had been indited by his pen, nor language used that would disgrace a gentleman or a Christian. However other parties might have been dis- [disposed] posed to indulge in abusive language and vile compositions against friends and neighbours,. he was thankful that no similar conduct had been shown in his addresses. It had been said that he took the position of a candidate under the instigation of the Gas Company, but he could assure the ratepayers that such was not the case. The gas pro- [proprietors] prietors [proprietors] had not given him a sixpence, nor had any other person given him a farthing. He had borne the whole of his expenses. He saw that his principles were spreading, for he had nearly doubled his votes since the previous elec- [elect- election] tion. [ion] He would second the motion proposed by Mr. Crosland. The motion was carried by acclamation, and JOSEPH BRooK, [Brook] Esq., acknowledged the compliment, expressing himself very glad that the business of the day had gone over so satisfactorily. He had been anxious to do justice to all, and hoped he had done so. (Applause.) ----- MECHANICS' INSTITUTE MONTHLY MEETINGS AND CONCERTS. The Committee of this valuable educational establish- [establishment] ment, [men] desirous of rendering it in every respect attrac- [attack- attractive] tive, [tie] and gathering under its influence the large masses of the operative population, whose deficiency in the common requirements of reading, writing, and general intellectual status, place them in so anomalous and dis- [disadvantageous] advantageous a position, have arranged a series of monthly meetings and concerts, to continue through the year, of a character at once interesting and instructive. With an earnest zeal in their object, the committce [committee] have generously thrown the doors open gratuitously to all visitors on these occasions. Hitherto they have succeeded, assisted by the kind co-operation of the musical and elocution classes-now and then honoured by the presence and aid of the professional and amateur musicians of the town. ; Presenting a programme, varied, and selected with taste and judgment, the concert department has gene- [generally] rally been acknowledged by the hearty plaudits of the audience; whilst the lectures and recitations have formed an agreeable relief and change. It is a pleasing feature in these meetings, that they draw towards one common centre, the comparatively rich and the poor, the operative and the merchant, and give rise between them to a generous utterance of sympathy and respect, -breaking down, as it were, the jealousies and antipa- [anti- antipathies] thies [this] which ignorance and demagogueism [demagogue ism] has cradled and nursed into maturity amongst the mass as against the few. . These meetings are held on the evenings of the last Saturday in each month, and, we had the pleasure of being present at the one held on the evening of this day (Saturday) week. The programme of arrangement was placed in our hands, and we present it as a sample, feel- [feeling] ing certain that the public will concur with us in ex- [expressing] pressing our approval of such efforts, and our sincere wishes for their future success - Tate.

The instrumental department was under the director- [directorship] ship of Mr. Hartley, who, with a generous liberality, was present, accompanied by his full band, who ren- [rendered] dered [deed] good service by their excellent performance of overtures and choruses. Mr. Hartley presided at a unique and sweet-toned, but rather novel instrument, called the organ du voyage. The orchestra was led by Mr. Gledhill. The vocalists, being amateurs, do not come within the scope of criticism, but their singing, whether in solos or full chorus, was very creditable. Miss Tate sang with much sweetness, and Miss Whit- [Whitham] ham received her usual mede [made] of praise. The respected secretary, Mr. Phillips, read an excel- [excellent] lent paper on Dr. Franklin, and took occasion to apply the practical maxims of that eminent philosopher and statesman as an incentive for the audience to laudable ambition and exertion. He was repeatedly applauded during its delivery. The pr gs were presided over by Mr. Marriott, in the absence of the respected president of the Institute, F. Schwann, Esq., and ter- [te- terminated] minated [mounted] shortly after ten o'clock. - - singular character, whose phy- [why- physique] bore evident marks of recent assault and battery, was brought up at the Police Office on Torre [Tore] ts in the custody of Mr. as Thomas Morrell, and claimed Brummagem [umbrage] as the place of his nativity-was by profession an itinerant tinker, an now, in the pursuit of such profession, was travelling the country. The other night, however, he had taken over much beer, and whilst glorious gave himself into custody for a series of sobberics [fabrics] ict [it] [C] ve i i 5 t e was en é vn eather [rather] more sober, and repeated his self- [self accusations] accusations, when Mr. Thomas considered it his duty to lock him up. Morrell's head after a night's rest became rather clearer, and he was not anxious to revisit the interior of a prison house -scenes with which, however, he ac- [acknowledged] knowledged [knowledge] himself to be tolerably familiar-and, as might guilty of the acts of with which he had previously accused himself. On promising to leave the town befare [before] j tour he was discharged, METHODIST NEW CONNEXION TEA PARTY. The annual tea party of the nexion [connexion] with High-street evening, in the School-room adjoining. The trays had been kindly presented by the ladies of the congregation, and upwards of three hundred partook of their hospi- [hosp- hospitality] tality, [vitality] which was of a most liberal and excellent quality. After tea the company adjourned to the upper school- [schoolroom] room, which was tastefully decorated with artificial flowersand [flower sand] festoons, and chairman's seat was 8US- [US- suspended] pended a small banner, bearing the inscription Metho- [Method- Methodist] dist New Connexion Tea Party. The chapel choir, assisted by Miss Castle and others, was present, and during the evening took a prominent part in the pro- [proceedings] ceedings. [proceeding] Mr. Wood presided at the piano forte. The whole of the performances were of a much higher order than are usually found on such occasions. The meeting opened with singing and prayer, after which Mr. Sykes, of Lindley, was called to preside, in the absence of the Rev. Mr. Allin, [Allan] who had been com- [compelled] pelled [celled] to leave to attend an ordination service. The worthy chairman addressed himself, in a short and humorous speech, to the company, and then introduced Mr. Senior, who gave the recitative, I feel the Deity, and the noble martial song, Arm, arm, ye brave, with great ability and power. The Rev. J. Stacey then rose, and ina very chaste and eloquent speech, spoke on the claims and elevating c r of music, remarking that the subject before them that evening, or at least that which stood out clearly and prominently, was vocal and instrumental music, for with that their evening exercises and delights were introduced, and with that their exercises and de- [delights] lights would be continued. He had no skill in music, and therefore could not talk about it. He believed after a little hard study he could tell a crotchet from a minum, [minus] ora minum [minus] from a semibreve - but beyond that he thought he could not very well go yet they had it on very high authority that The man that hath no music in himself, - Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. .. It was desirable, therefore, if that was true, to have some little in one's soul, and he confessed he was greatly delighted, on proper occasions, with music of almost every kind for it touched some of the deepest and finest chords of their nature, and stirred into action some of the dearest sympathies and sweetest impulses of life. Music might be viewed as a pure, an esthetic [Asthmatic] delight, or it might be viewed as a solemn gospel act of devotion towards God. But he believed it was only when the two were combined together, and formed the expression of man's nature, that it became profitable to the individual, and at the same time pleasing and acceptable to Almighty God. It was not to be denied that there was a peculiar delight in music, considered in itself. God had planted-he had wrought into their nature, the very principle of music; and music in the spheres, and music in the heavens, and music drawn out of instruments, was but the development and ex- [expression] pression [Prussian] of the very principle of music as it existed in the human heart. (Applause.) It was not wonderful, therefore, that they were delighted with music, and God had provided it plentifully for them all around. He had put music in the flowing stream-He had put music in the rain which danced on every pane of glass -He had put music in the solemn sweep of the forest -He had put music in the birds that carolled in the heavens-and all constituted one grand hymn, cele- [cell- celebrating] brating [rating] the praises of a universal Creator. (Applause.) But inasmuch as man was gifted with reason and social affections -inasmuch as he possessed a heart capable of the highest and most solemn acts of worship-it was for him that the very love, the very power and qualifi- [qualified- qualification] cation for music, co-existed in their fullest develop- [development] ment. [men] While, however, it became a mere intellectual delight it ought to assume the still higher character- [character the] the noble character of an act of worship. If it were true that the whole of man's life should be one grand hymn to his creator-then it was also true that music in its noblest forms, in its sweetest harmonies, in its most dulcet melody, ought to be directed to Him who was, and is, and is to come. (Applause.) In heaven there were harpers harping with their harps, and there had been music in the heaven of heavens from the very beginning. When the earth itself was created, they were told that the morning stars sang together for joy; and when the birth of the great Redeemer was announced, it was by a multitude of the heavenly host joining together and ascribing praise unto God, ing that they brought Good tidings of great joy, which should be to all people -glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and good will towards men. (Applause.) The rev. gentle- [gentleman] man concluded, by relating a beautiful and affecting anecdote of a young lady of wealth and station, contend- [contending] ing against the gaiety and whirl of pleasure to which her noble birth introduced her, and ultimately'subduing by her tenderness and Christian virtues the difficulties which were thrown in her path-way by those who were anxious that she should return to her wonted scenes of frivolity and excitement. The remainder of the evening was taken up by the musical performances, interspersed now and then with short speeches from the Chairman, the Rev. Mr. Saxton, Her, Z Stacey, Mr. William Crosland, and Mr. William mith. [Smith] We turn with much pleasure to give a passing notice of the musical ladies and gentlemen whose presence af- [afforded] forded so rich and agreeable a change and variety to the customary routine of religious tea parties. In our severest moods we would be far from hypercritical, and when writing under the influence of gracious smiles, and the recollections of an evening well spent, we feel dis- [disposed] posed to overlook the faults and failings in the many beauties of vocalisation and tone, which flowed in gentle and sweetest melody from the choir. Paying our praise, then, to the whole-sazs [whole-says] discords and harshness-we come with higher approbation to the individual per- [performances] formances [performance] of Miss Castle, Mrs. Watson, and Mr. Senior. The heart that sat unmoved under the deep feeling and touching pathos of that beautiful song, Eve's Lament- [Lamentations] ations, [nations, we should almost place in the category as hav- have- having] ing no music in their souls. Miss Castle is a young, and, we believe, a new candidate for public favour, and if we may judge of her powers by her rendering of this song, we think she gives every promise of future success ; the exquisite sweetness and feeling with which she sang the passage, Must I leave thee wonld [would] lead us to form a high estimate of her powers. The song was deservedly repeated, by request. Mrs, Watson is an old favourite, nor did she disappoint her admirers in the beautiful song, With verdure clad, and the fine anthem The Lord is full of compassion, which were received with loud expressions of applause, as also the rendering of From mighty kings. sang ex- [exceedingly] ceedingly [certainly] well, and in the choruses was particularly happy and effective. The company dispersed about ten o'clock, after the usual votes of thanks to the ladies and to the chairman.

The fourth annual exhibition of this society was held yesterday (Friday), in a field belonging to the worthy rector, adjoining the church. From an early hour in the morning the beautiful little village presented a scene of stirring excitement, and prepartion [preparation] for the event which the inhabints [inhabitants] were about to celebrate, with more than customary festivity and enjoyment. As the morning passed on, the church bells rang out a merry peal, and the footpaths and the roads were thro [tho] with gay equipages, and crowds of fashionably attired ladies and gentlemen. On entering the grounds, we were very much pleased with the appearance of the marquee and the general arrangement of the stalls. The tent differed from the one in Huddersfield last week, and indeed from those usually erected on such occasions, but its eflect [elect] in its entirety rather gained than lost by the alteration. It was some- [somewhat] what of the form of the letter T, the four inner sides opening to a centre loan, in which was erected a beautiful minature [nature] fountain, whence danced the light feathery spray glittering in the sunbeam, and falling with rainbow tints upon the surrounding grotto work and plants The interior of the tent was tastefully decorated, under the superintendence of the Messrs.

[tines] During the last fortnight the clock has been at least twelve minutes behind Huddersfield time, in con- [consequence] sequence of which numberless luckless railway travellers have been misled, and nearly as often been too late for the train by which they proposed journeying. Surely it would be infinitely better to stop the clock altogether than thus as it were be the means of obtaining not money, btu [but] the confidence of the public under false pretences. The CuurcH [Church] oF ENncLanp.- According [England.- According] to previous intimation, two sermons were preached in St. John's Church, Upper Thong township, on Sunday last; the object being to raise money to defray the inevitable expenses attendant upon divine worship at this place during the past year-such expenses as the apparitor's [operator's] salary, remuneration for cleaning the church, sacramental provisions, &c. In the absence of the respected incumbent, through illness, the afternoon service was undertaken by the Rev. T. B. Benstead, M.A., incumbent of Lockwood, who gave utterance to a most excellent discourse. The Rev. G. Hough, of South Crossland, officiated in the evening, and preached a very chaste and peculiarly appropriate sermon from Exodus 19-v. 30, Ye shall keep my Sabbaths and reverence my sanctuary. I am the Lord. The collections, in- [including] cluding [including] private contributions previously made, amounted to 25. Gie [Ge] Accipent.-Early [Accident.-Early] in the afternoon of yesterday week, Mr. Jonathan Roberts, manufacturer, of Hinchliff Mill, left home for a drive, in his pony phaetor, [phaeton] accom- [com- accompanied] panied [pained] by Mrs. Roberts, and their son Joseph. The pony was a young one, and had not been long in Mr. Roberts's possession. When on the road home, and just below the Ford Inn, the animal bolted and (the driver having now lost command of the reins), continued his unrestrained career, at a fearful pace, all the way down the hill to Holmfirth, until it arrived at Upper Bridge- [Bridge street] street. Several clung to the rear of the phaeton, and thus succeeded in somewhat checking its velocity. The horse's head was then as soon as possible seized, and of course the runaway quadruped brought to a stand. On enquiring, it was found that the occupants of the curricle had escaped without further injury than a severe fright, that the horse was unhurt, and the breaking and damage to the vehicle comparatively trifling. EaRLy [Early] To BED AND Earty [Early] TO shopkeepers in this locality commenced the very laudable and humane practice of closing their public establishments at eight o'clock in the evening for the winter season on Monday last. An OLp [Old] Custom REVIVED.-Some two months ago four Underbank youths, named respectively Fox, Mel- [Mellor] lor, [or] Holmes, and Wagstaff, were convicted before the Holmfirth justices of Sabbath-breaking, and by them sentenced to pay a certain fine, with expenses. Neglect- [Neglecting] ing to do this within a given period, they underwent the punishment of pillory, in the shape of six hours' exhi- [ex hi- exhibition] bition [notion] in the public stocks, on Thursday last. MertHopismM.-On [Methodist.-On] behalf of the Sabbath-school con- [connected] nected [connected] with the Holmfirth Wesleyan chapel, two ser- [se- sermons] mons were preached in that place of worship, on Sunday last, by the newly-appointed ministers, the Revs. J. H. Faull [Fall] and J. Millar, the latter being the superintendent of the district. Both gentlemen are well stricken in years; and it is still hoped that some good may be accomplished by their ministrations amongst the Wes- [West- Wesleyan] leyan [lean] body. The reverend gentlemen were greeted by full congregations, both in the afternoon and evening. The collections amounted to 13 12s. MAGISTRATES' COURT, TOWN-HALL, August 31. Consequent upon the absence from home of the junior magistrate, Mr. Joshua Moorhouse, through busi- [bus- business] ness in London, two cases of assault, which had been entered for trial, were ordered to stand over until to- [today] day (Saturday); the only business transacted being the payment of various affiliation arrears, with the expenses incurred.

ALMONDBOURY. [ALMONDBURY] NEGLEctTING [Neglecting] To REPAIR THE HigHway.-At [Highway.-At] the Guild- [Guildhall] hall, Huddersfield, on Tuesday last, before Joseph Armitage, and W. W. Battye, Esqrs., [Esquires] Mr. Clay, solicitor, appeared for Mr. Nathan Roebuck, tosummons [to summons] William Heap, the assistant overseer, to show cause why he had neg to repair a certain portion of the highway opposite Mr. Roebuck's house, about 460 yards in length. An adjournment was applied for, and. for Tuesday next. Meantime, Mr. 'was requested by the bench to be present at the overseers' meeting on Friday (last night), to see if some amicable arrangement, could not be come to on the matter. 5 DALTON. of high - Hieuwar-Rate.-The [Hear-Rate.-The] overseer ways a ish of Dalton, made application to the Huddersfield magistrates, last for a rate of 10d. in the pound. The arrears were 6 5a. 34d.-the [d.-the] responsi- [response- responsibility] bility [debility] of which he would accept, and the rate was KIRKHEATON. Poor-Ratzs.-The [Poor-Rates.-The] overseer for this parish appeared at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, last Saturday, to summons the defaulting ratepayers, to show cause why they did not pay the poor-rate. Orders for payment were out in all cases. Tuesday last, at the Guild- [Guildhall] hall, Huddersfield, a simple looking man, called Wiliam Denton, was charged by a youth, named Joseph France, with ill-treating him on the 24th ult. It appeared that complainants' father and defendant are both pigeon- [penances] fanciers, and the ill-treatment had arisen out of a disputed trapping by France of one of Denton's pigeons. The offence was denied, and as the evidence was pretty equally balanced, the defendant was discharged on pay- [paying] ing expenses. KIRKBURTON. ASSAULTING THE PoLicEMaN.-The [Policeman.-The] Kirkburton police- [policeman] man, Glover, appeared before the bench at Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field, on Tuesday last, with a string of charges for assault, drunk and disorderly, and disturbing the public peace, against John Lodge, Walter Kay, and Adam Wil- [Wilson] son. According to his story, on the night of the 20th inst., he went to the house of Mr. Sutcliffe, the George Inn, on business, and found a number of hand bell ringers going through their performances in a rather uproarious manner. Whilst speaking with Mr. Sutcliffe in another room, the party left. He shortly afterwards followed, and overtook them creating a great disturbance near Mr. Nightroad's [Night road's] house. He requested them to go away but they refused, and threatened to strike him. Having succeeded in getting out of their hands, he gave them to understand he should summons them for the offence Mr. Clay defended, and denied the whole charge. Glover by his assumed legal acumen afforded no little amusement to the Court-house gods. The evidence was conflicting, and the bench discharged the prisoners, on paying expenses. Serious CHarce [Chance] oF ASSAULT WITH INTENT. On Saturday last, a respectable looking young man, named Joseph Redford, by profession a guager, [gauge] was brought up at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, before Joseph Brook and George Armitage, Esqs., [Esq] on a charge of assault with intent, committed on the person of Sarah Shep- [She- Shepherd] herd Kitson, of Harras, [Harris] near Kirkburton. Mr. Sykes, of Kirkburton, prosecuted, and Mr. J. I. Freeman, de- [defended] fended. The complainant is of a respectable family. and is about sixteen years of age. On the evening of Wednesday, the 25th ult., she went to Mr. Sutcliffe's the George Inn, to meet her cousin, George Townsend, and his wife, who live at Ossett, but who were going to sleep at her father's that night. Redford was there, and when they left would accompany them notwith- [not with- notwithstanding] standing that he was quite a stranger, and they wishing him not todo [too] so. Finding they could neither offend him nor be quit of his company he was allowed to join them, and he accordingly acted as an escort to Miss Kitson. During their walk home, Redford inquired of Mr. Townsend if he had had a kiss, as he (Redford) was going to have one; and he succeeded in carrying out such intention on Miss Kitson. His company was felt to be very annoying, but still he proceeded along with them, and on reaching a stile, at the top of Tunn [Turn] Shaw, he began to take very indecent liberties. Miss Kitson complained to her cousin, who immediately insisted upon Redford leaving them, but the prisoner, who was worse for liquor, doggedly refused, and being wishful to prevent any disturbance, as they were not far from Mr. Kitson's, Mr. Townsend thought the lesser evil would be to remain quiet. He and his wife proceeded on, and got slightly in advance of his cousin, when the prisoner again conducted himself very indecently, and threw Miss Kitson on the ground. She screamed very loudly, and her cousin hearing her cries of distress ran towards the spot, found his cousin on the ground, and the prisoner in such a position as to leave no doubt of the object he was contemplating. The prisoner observing Mr. Townsend coming went away. When Mr. Townsend got up to Miss Kitson, she was very much excited and could not speak. A warrant was duly taken out, and Policeman Glover apprehended the prisoner on Saturday morning. He partly acknow- [acne- acknowledged] ledged [ledge] the offence, but pleaded that he was drunk.- [drunk] Mr. Freeman said there was no doubt but his client was worse for liquor, and he thought the ends of jus- [us- justice] tice [ice] would be attained if the case was treated as a common assault. The bench took a different view, and committed the prisoner to Wakefield to take his trial at the sessions for an assault with intent, but would accept bail, himself in 25, and two sureties in 10 each. HALIFAX. MEETING oF THE Town Councit.-A [Council.-A] special general meeting of this body was held on Wednesday last, at three o'clock in the afternoon. The chief business for which the Council were called together was to hear the report of the Board of Works respecting the new reser- [refer- reservoir] voir, [vie] and the contract which Mr. Edward Bull had entered into respecting its repair. As the subject is one of importance, we give the following report - The Board of Works regret that they are again obliged to lay before the Council the subject of the present state of the new reservoir. Your committee had hoped ere long to have been able to have reported that the work was brought to a satisfactory close. is, however, is not so. A short time ago, the contractor, in repairing the legying [lying] on the west side, found the puddle trench in a very bad state, and stated that to make the same water- [water] mah [ham] he should require the sum stipulated for more than doubling. Your commit- [committee] tee have since further examined the trench, and are con- [convinced] vineed [divine] that the whole of the west bank will turn out worth- [worthless] less, and, therefore, that the same be taken down, reconstructed, and repuddled. [re puddled] This, however, Mr. Bull refuses to do, alleging that such work is not in his con- [contract] tract, and required, before entering thereupon, an e ment [men] thereof. Your committee, therefore, have no alter- [alternative] native but to lay the matter before the Council; and they need not remind the Council of the importance (as the reservoir is now undergoing repair) of those repairs being made in the most thorough and complete manner possible. Your committee have had under their consideration a letter addressed to the Mayor, by Mr. Bull, containing a pro- [proposition] position, which they beg to lay before the Council, and think it worthy at least of their consideration, and, there- [therefore] fore, leave the matter in the hands of the Council to deal with as they may deem best. The letter from Mr. Bull, above alluded to, haaing [having] been read, Councillor Gaukroger submitted the following resolution, which Alderman Baldwin seconded -' That the report of the Board of Works, now read, be received and entered into the report book, and that, although the Council is of opinion that Mr. Edward Bull is bound by his agreement to complete and make water-tight the new reservoir; yet, with a view to save much unneces- [unnecessary- unnecessary] sary [say] expense and delay, the Council deems it expedient to revoke, and doth hereby revoke so much of a resolu- [resolute- resolution] tion [ion] or order passed at the last Council meeting relative to the said reservoir, authorising the Board of Works to enter into an agreement with the said Edward Bull for putting the said reservoir into proper and water-tight condition at his estimate of 265; W] and also, doth hereby consent to the agreement with the said Edward Bull, entered into in accordance with such resolution or order, being cancelled, on condition that the said Edward Bull should only be paid such expenses out of pocket as he hath sustained in carrying out the work already done. -After a lengthened discussion, in which some of the Council expressed their objection to the contract being laid aside, the motion was carried, twelve supporting it, one voting against, and many remain ing neuter.-A resolution accepting the proposition of Mr. Bull was carried unanimously, fourteen voting for, and none against- [against] A report was presented by the Sub- [Sub water] Water Works Committee, relative to the purchase of a farm, &c., at Dodgson Clough, in Ovenden, [Oven den] there being a valuable spring of water therein, which was unani- [unanimously] mously [Mosley] agreed to.-After passing a resolution with refe- [free- reference] ence [once] to the fencing and making safe of the stone dam footway, [doorway] and a suggestion offered by the Mayor to the Committee on Public Clocks to again notice that import- [important] ant subject, the Council broke up. JuLLiEN's [Julien's] Granp [Grand] Concert.-On Monday evening a numerous and fashionable company attended the grand concert by Mons. Jullien, [Julien] in the Odd-fellows Hall. The overture at the commencement, Zampa, Tampa, was cleverly executed. Herr Sommers [Summers] in the Saxophin [Saxon] Obligato [Obliged] was loudly applauded in fact his performance was the gem of the evening. Miss Delby [Derby] in the vocal department afforded much satisfaction, and in the song Bonnie Dundee, obtained a deserved encore. The whole entertainment went off satisfactorily, and was highly creditable to M. Jullien [Julien] and his band. Poor Law Gvuarprans [Guardians] at Favut.-Messrs. [Favour.-Messrs] James Longbotham and Jenkinson, the former late Poor Law guardian for the township of Skircoat, [Scott] the latter for Southowram, [Stream] were, at the instance of Mr. Thomas Barker, auditor of the West Yorkshire district, brought before the West Riding magistrates, for not refunding the sum of 2 which had been illegally paid by the relieving officer by their orders, and which sum Mr. Barker in discharge of his duty had disallowed. C.S. Floyd, Esq., of Huddersfield, appeared for Mr. Barker, and clearly proved the case agamst [against] them. Mr. Long- [Longbotham] botham [both] had had every leniency shown him, nine months having elapsed since the audit. J. R. Ralph, Esq., advised Longbotham to settle the matter which he did by paying 3 11s. 6d., the amount with costs. Mr. Jenkinson, we understand, had settled his share before. Excise CHaRGE.-A [Charge.-A] coach proprietor residi [desire] Bradford, well-known in the world. ae brought before the West-Riding magistrates, at Haiifax, [Halifax] for running a coach between Bradford and Leeds, he only having a license to run between Bradford and Hali- [Hail- Halifax] fax.
