After resting for a short time after oe on Thursday, her Maj ber [be] ol ents [ants] Holyrood Palace, with all of P e expressed erself [self] highly delig [deli] hted.

There was no demon- [demon oration] oration whatever in the city in the evening; and by eight o'clock, the immense crowd that chad col- [collected] lected [elected] to witness her Majesty's arrival had entirely left Holyrood Park; so that the quiet of the royal party in the palace was not interfered with in the smallest Friday morning her Majesty walked for some time in the grounds of the palace, and the royal party ds paid a visit to Arthur's Seat, and again re- [returned] turned to the palace at half-past eleven. At noon on e same day Prince Albert laid the foundation-stone of the National Gallery of Scotland, in the presence of the principal authorities and a large body of spectators. The prince, in the performance of this ceremony, was joudly [loudly] cheered. His royal highness then turned round, and briefly addressed the noblemen and gentlemen resent. Aficr [Africa] expressing his satisfaction at having ood [od] t in his power to lay the foundation stone, his soyal [Royal] highness proceeded to say - The building of which we have just begun the foundation is a temple to be erected to the fine arts-the fine arts qhich [which] have so important an influence upon the development of the mind and feeling of a people, and which are so gene- [generally] rally taken as the type of the degree and character of that development, that it is on the fragments of the works of art, come down to us from bygone nations, that we are yont [ont] to form our estimate of their civilization, manners, customs, and religion. Let us hope that the impulse given to the culture of the fine arts in this country, and the daily increasing attention bestowed upon it by the people at large, will not only tend to refine and elevate the national taste, but will also lead to the production of works which, if left behind us as memorials of our age, will give to other an adequate idea of our advanced state of civi- [civil- civilisation] iisation. [isolation] It must be an additional source of gratification to me to find that part of the funds rendered available for the support of this undertaking should be the ancient grant which, at the union of the two kingdoms, was secured towards the encouragement of the fisheries and manufac- [manufacture- manufactures] tures [Tues] of Scotland, and it affords a most pleasing proof that these important branches of industry have arrived at that state of manhood and prosperity-that, no longer requiring the aid of a fostering government, they can maintain them- [themselves] selves, independently relying upon their own vigour and activity, and can now in their turn lend assistance and sup- [support] rt to their younger and weaker sisters, the fine arts. entlemen, [gentlemen] the history of this grant exhibits to us the pic- [picture] ture [true] of a most healthy national progress-the ruder arts connected with the necessaries of life first gaining strength, then education and science supervening and directing fur- [further] ther [the] exertions, and lastly, the arts which only adorn life becoming longed for by a prosperous and educated people. May nothing disturb this progress; and may, by God's that peace and prosperity be preserved to the nation which will ensure to it a long continuance of moral and intellectual enjoyment. His Royal Highness spoke without notes, and with a pronunciation in which his foreign origin could barely be detected. He did not speak very loud, so that what he said could only be distinctly heard by those imme- [Mme- immediately] diately [lately] around Lim. [Lime] . After paying a visit to the Royal Institution, the Prince returned to Holyrood at two p.m. Her Majesty remained in the palace during the whole of the time the ceremony of laying the foundation-stone of the National Gallery was gone through; but about one o'clock, and immediately after the departure of the Prince from the palace, the royal children drove up to the Castle, which they reached just a few minutes before the royal salute was fired in honour of the Prince Concort's [Concert's] arrival at the Royal Institution. In the course of the afternoon her Majesty and His Royal Highness Prince Albert paid a visit to Donald- [Donaldson] son's Huspital, [Hospital] one of the mo s magnificent structures in or near the city, and one of the finest specimens of the architectural taste of Mr. Playfair. This hospital was founded and endowed by Mr. James Donaldson, printer, in Edinburgh, who left the princely sum of 210,000 for its erection and endowment. It is to be opened, we learn, in the course of a few weeks, when, according to the will of the founder, two hundred poor boys and girls are to be educated and maintained within its walls. Her Majesty and suite left Edinburgh on Saturday morning. at half-past eight, by the North British Rail- [Railway] way, and arrived at the Greenhill Junction, in about three quarters of an hour. The royal party then proceeded forward by the Scottish Central Railway to Perth, and from thence by the Scottish Midlands on to Coupar- [Cranks] Angus. where they arrived at half-past llam. [lam] After partaking of some refreshment at the station, Her majesty, Prince Albert, the Prince of Wales, and the Priucess [Princess] Royel, [Royal] then entered the first carriage-which, as well as the others, was open-while the second was occupied by Princess Alice and Prince Alfred, with the Marchionexs [Marchioness] of Douro, the Hon. Miss Lennox, and Miss Hilliard. A char-a-bane then followed, in which were the Hon. Coloncl [Colonel] Gordon, the Hon. Colonel Phipps, Sir George Gicy, [Icy] Sir James Clark, and others of the royal retinue; and, amid the cheers of the congregated multi- [multitude] tude, [tue] her majesty drove off for Balmoral, where the royal party arrived at half-past five and where we leave the royal party to enjoy the comforts of domestic life amid their Highland home of beauty and grandcur. [grand] DESPERATE ATTACK UPON GENERAL HayNav.-On [Hannah.-On] Wednesday morning, shortly before twelve o'clock, three foreigners, one of whom wore long moustachios, presented themselves at the brewery of Messrs. Barclay and Co. for the purpose of inspecting the establishment. According to the regular practise of visitors, they were requested to sign their names in a book in the office, after which they crossed the yard with one of the clerks. On inspecting the visitors' book the clerks discovered that one of the Visitors was no other than General Haynau, [Hannah] the late Com- [Commander] iiauder [adder] of the Austrian forces during the Hungarian war. ' became known ali over the brewery in less than two minutes, and before the general and his companions had crossed the yard nearly all the labourers and draymen [drawn] were out with brooms and dirt, shouting out, Down with the Austrian butcher, and other epithets of rather an alarming lature [nature] to the general. He was soon covered with dirt, and perceivins [perceiving] some of the men about to attack him ran into the street to Bankside, followed by a large mob, consisting of the brewers' men, eval [veal] heavers, and others, armed with Souris [Sours] of weapous, [weapons] with which they belaboured the general. He ran in a frantic manner along Bankside until he came to the George publichouse, [public house] when forcing the doors open he rushed in and proceeded upstairs into one of the bed-rooms, to the utter astonishment of Mrs. ufield [field] the landlady, who soon discovered his name and the reason of hisentering [enterprising] her house. The furious mob rushed in after him, threatening to do for the Austrian butcher, but fortunately fur him, the house is very old fashioned and Contains a vast number of doors, which were all forced open Xcept Except] that of the room in which the general was concealed mob increased at that time to several hundreds, and 's. Benficid [Benefices] became alarmed about her own property as Well as the general's life. She accordingly despatched a Messenger to the Southwark police station for the assistance ofthe [of the] police, and in a short time Inspector Squires arrived at the George with a number of police, and with great difficulty dispersed the mob and got the general out of the Ouse. [Use] A pulice [police] galley was at the wharf at the time, into Which he was taken and rowed towards Somerset-house #nidst [midst] the shouts and execrations of the mob. Messrs. arclay [Barclay] are very indignant at the conduct of the men, and no doubt a strict inquiry will be entered into respecting the engin [engine] of the attack. -Times. A Disaprorstrp [Disastrous] BRIDE.-A circumstance which fully ars [as] out the truth of the old adage that 'There is many a a between the cup and the lip, took place in Chester, of uesday [Tuesday] last.

VER, [REV] WEDNESDAY.-The wire so succossfull [successfully] merged last. week has been cut asunder among the rks [ks] at ape Grisnex, [Garrisons] where the physical tion [ion] of the rench [French] coast has been found vourable [favourable] for it as a place of holdfast or [Holdfast or] fixture. All communication between coast a Coast has-eonsequently [has-consequently] been ded [de] for the present. precise point where the b took place is 200 miles of electric out at sea, and e that had been streamed out from Dover joins on toa [to] leaden tube, designed to protect it from the surge beating against the beach, and which serves the purpose of con- [conveying] veying [varying] it up the front of the cliff to the tel ph station on the top. This leaden conductor, it would avpcar [alpaca] was' of too soft a texture to resist the oscillation of the sea, and thereby became detached from the coil of gutta percha wire that was thought to have been safely encased in it. The occurrence was, of course, quickly by the sudden cessation of the series of communications that have been sustained since the first sinking of the electric cable between here and the Cape, though it was at first a per- [perplexing] plexing [placing] point to discover at what precise spot the wire was roken [broken] or at fault. This, however, was done by i up the line at intervals, a process which disclosed the gratifying fact that since its first sinking it had re- [remained] mained [maiden] 2x situ [sit] at the bottom of the sea, in consequence of the leaden weights or clumps that were strung to it at every sixteenth of a mile. The operation was accomplished 'by Messrs. Brett, Reid, Wollaston, and who have been attending to the management of the telegraph without intermission, and who are now, with their s removing the wire to a point nearer Calais, where from soundings it has been ascertained that there are no rocks, and where the contour of the coast is favour- [favourable] able. It is thought that for the present leaden tube a tube of iron. must be substituted, the present apparatus being considered too fragile to be permanently answerable. experiment, as far as it has gone, proves the possibility of the gutta percha wire resisting the action of the salt water, of the fact of its being a perfect waterproof insulator, and that the weights on the wire are sufficient to prevent its being drifted away by the currents, and of sinking it in the sands, During the period that the wire was perfect messages were daily printed by Brett's Printing Telegraph, in legible man type, on long strips of paper, in the presence of a numerous French and lish [Lush] audience; but it is not intended to make we of the wire for commercial and news- [newspaper] paper purposes until the connexion of it with the tele [tee] hs of the South Eastern and that now completed on the other side from Calais to Paris is effected. Should the one wire answer, it is intended eventually to run out twenty or thirt [that] more, so as to have a constant reserve in the event of acci- [acct- accident] dent in readiness. This huge reticulation of electric line will represent 400 miles of teleraph [Telegraph] submerged in the sea, and as each will be a considerable distance apart, a total water width of six or eight miles in extent.- [extent] Sun. -- - THE REVISING BARRISTERS FOR THE NORTHERN CiR- [Sir- Circuit] cuIT.-On [cut.-On .-On] Thursday week, at Liverpool, Mr. Justice Wight- [Wightman] man, the senior judge going the northern circuit this summer, appointed the following barristers for the revision of the lists of voters for the counties and boroughs comprised in the circuit - West Riding of Yorkshire, with Pontefract-B. Boothby, W. Blanchard, and L. Temple, Esqrs. [Esquires] North Riding and Boroughs-S. Temple, Esq. East Riding and Boroughs, with York, Knaresborough, and Ripon-G. Pollock, Esq.

Northumberland and its Boroughs-T. J. Hogg, Esq. Durham and its Boroughs-R. Matthews, Esq. North Lancashire with its Boroughs, and Kendal-C. Otter, Esq. DEaTH [Death] OF THE MEMBER FOR HEREFORD.-Mr. Joseph Bailey, M.P. for the county of Hereford, expired on Satur- [Star- Saturday] day, at his residence in Belgrave-square. The hon. gentle- [gentleman] man was born in 1812, and in 1839 he married the daughter of C. Russell, Esq. A conservative in politics, and iden- [identified] tified [testified] with the protectionists, Mr. Bailey seldom spcke [spoke] in the House of Commons, but on all great political struggles he invariably attended and recorded his votes against the present government. In 1835 and 1837 he unsuccessfully contested the borough of Monmouth. Subsequently he was elected for the borough of Sudbury, in the room of Sir James John Hamilton, who accepted the Chiltem [Child] Hun- [Hundreds] dreds, [dress] and in 1847 the electors of Herefordshire elected him as their representative. THE SUMMER CIRCUITS.-All the summer circuits, we believe, without exception, have exhibited a s artling [Gatling] de- [decrease] crease of civil business; and we hear the gentlemen of the. bar, of all ranks, have reason to complain, not only of the past dearth-of business, but of the disheartening prospects of the future. It is to be observed that this dearth of busi- [bus- business] ness, which was largely occasioned by the original Local Courts Act, will be aggravated when the new one, with its greatly extended jurisdiction, has come into opera- [operation] tion. [ion] As one instance of the extraordinary contrast between the present and former state of circuit busi- [bus- business] ness, we may cite the case of Liverpool. When Mr. Justice Cresswell presided in the Civil Court two years ago he had to dispose of one hundred and eighty-eight causes ; this summer his labours were restricted to getting through 66 Under these circumstances the apprehensions of the members of the bar seem undoubtedly too well founded.- [founded] Legal Observer. Dr. M'NEILE [M'NEIL] ON THE CHURCH QUESTION.-The Rev. Dr. M'Neile, [M'Neil] in a letter, dated August 24, to a clergyman who had desired to learn his views, has signified his appro- [approve- approval] val of the recent judgment of the privy council on the church question. We extract from the letter its most striking passage Concerning the efficacy of baptism upon infants, concerning the baptism of infants at all, I do not know any one word of God. It is never once mentioned in holy scripture. The antiquity of the practice is un- [undoubted] doubted as a matter of fact, and I very cordially agree with those who think it 'most agreeable with the institution of Christ.' But all that men have written about its efficacy, the guando [guano] and the guomodo, [good] is no more and no better than inference inference honestly drawn, let us grant, but cer- [er- certainly] tainly [mainly] fallibly, and by some erroneously, since all do not infer alike. He who elevates any such inference into the place and authority of a word of God, and thereupon announces an opposing inference to be heresy, seems to me to arrogate infallibility (at least in this instance) to him- [himself] self. The recent judgment of the privy council has checked such arrogance, therefore I rejoice in it. I may express my combined convictions thus in divine truth no latitude; in human inferences no bigotry. A Lerrer [Letter] or Sir Napier.-As Sir Charles Napier is so soon about to retire, it would be well we think to collect and publish a volume of Napieriana. [Napier] We have read severel [severe] very characteristic letters, which we regret that we were not permitted to publish but one has just been handed to us for that purpose, and we ac- [accordingly] cordingly [accordingly] subjoin it. The affair, as related to us, is as follows -A person employed in a public office, in send- [sending] ing a small sum due to Mr. Rowe, addressed him as Sergeant Rowe. The sergeant's better half was incensed at this, he being a tailor by trade, and employed in the clothing department, and probably expected to be ad- [addressed] dressed esquire. She wrote an angry letter to the offender, who considering the sergeant implicated, com- [complained] plained to the commanding officer of the station, and not obtaining the redress he expected, forwarded his complaint to the commander-in-chief, from whom he received the following reply, which we think would have been recognised without the signature Camp, 18th April, 1850 [W Sir,-I have received your complaint, and your very sensible remarks on Mrs. Sergeant Rowe's letter. There is, as you say, nothing disgraceful in being a sergeant, any more than in being a tailor, which by your letter Sergeant Rowe appears to be. My opinion is that he who wears an uniform is of higher-rank than he who makes it; and the sergeant is, in my mind, much the highest in rank of the two -all soldiers are gentle- [gentlemen] men, and tailors are only tailors But it seems that Mrs. Rowe thinks otherwise, and prefers being a tailor's wife, to being an officer's wife. Now in my opinion a lady has a right to hold her own opinion on these mat- [matters] ters, [tees] and I am unable to give you any redress, because my commission as commander-in-chief gives me no power to make ladies apolegise [apologise] for being saucy, which is an unfortunate habit that they fall into at times, and more especially those who are good-looking, which I suppose Mrs. Sergeant Rowe happens to be. As to the sergeant having written the letter, that is neither here nor there Some husbands cannot well help doing as they are ordered, and he may be innocent of malice. The only thing that I can do is to advise you to apply to your superior, the collector and magistrate of Fur- [Huckaback] ruckabad, [Huckaback] who will represent the insult which has been put upon you by Mr. Sergeant Rowe (as you state), and if possible, Major Tucker will endeavour to persuade the lady to apologise for calling you an ass. More than giving you this advice I cannot do.-(Signed) C. J. Napier, Commander-in-Chief.-Caleutta [Commander-in-Chief.-Calcutta] Englishman THE SURPASSING EXCELLENCE OF HoLLoway's [Holloway's] OINT- [ONT- OINTMENT] MENT [MEN] AND PILLS IN THE CURE OF OLD WOUNDS, OB ScroFuLovus [Scrofula] Sores.-Four years since, Thomas Watkins, a cotton-spinner at Manchester, received a severe wound in his arm by its coming in contact with the machinery. For a considerable time he was attended by several medical men at the infirmary, who decided that nothing could save the poor man's life but amputation to this he objected, whereupon he was turned out as incurable. At this crisis his friends subscribed a trifle to purchase some of Holloway s Ointment and Pills, which remedies, in a few weeks, healed the wound after so long a period of suffering. on ESPAIR.-The [DESPAIR.-The] pride ofall, [fall] from the peer to the clear and fair and complexion hich [which] alone can be obtained but by the use of Dr. Cockburn's Celebrated Oriental Botanical Extract it quickly and effectually dis- [dispelling] pelling [selling] those personal disfigurations, pimples, tan, freckles, and all other diseases of the skin, whic [which] at this season of the year demands the greatest attention. No better proof can be formed of the high estimation in which the Oriental Botanical Extract is held by all respectable classes of society than the immense sale it now commands-upwards of 10,000 bottles monthly-enjoying the patronage ofall [fall] the crowned heads of Europe, and the leading members of the English aristocracy, producing the most keneficial [beneficial] effect, and impart- [imparting] ing to all a most delightful and outhful [youthful] appearance.

The annual exhibition of the Barnsley and Wapen- [Weapon- Vantage] take of Staincross [Stain cross] Floral and Horticultural Society' was' held in a field which had been lent by Mr. Fradd, [Fraud] ear the Obelisk, at the top of Church-street, on Tuesday last, when a numerous and fashionable assemblage of; the nobility and elite of the town and neighbourhood presented a pleasing and animating appearance. The productions were exhibited in a splendid new pavilion which has been recently purchased by the society, and which was decorated at the exterior by flags and ban- ners. [ness] The interior was laid out with great judgment, and displayed considerable taste. Two apertures, one for in and the other for egress, prevented much confusion. Four tables were arranged, two in the centre for plants and flowers; and others on the sides for vege- [vere- vegetables] tables and fruit; one portion was allotted to the speci- [specie- specimens] mens [men] exhibited by nurserymen, gentlemen's gardeners, and amateurs; and, on the other was displayed the pro- [productions] ductions [auctions] of the cottager, which showed a favourable comparison with their wealthy neighbours. Shortly after the marquee had been thrown open the spectacle presented was of a most brilliant character-the grace- [graceful] ful [full] galaxy of beauty which promenaded the spacious pavillion, [pavilion] combined with the magnificent lilliums, [Williams] the beautiful fuchias, [fuchsias] geraniums and petunias, the ordorifer- [driver- auriferous] ous [us] roses and stocks, and other exquisite flowers, spreading their sweetest fragrance, the luscious melons, apricots, peaches, grapes, pines, and nectarines, with the harmonious and well-executed strains of the Barnsley brass band, which was in attendance, formed one grand ion of beauty and lovliness [loveliness] by the varied charms of which the visitor was intoxicated. Besides the varied kinds of vegetables, fruits, plants, and flowers, all of which presented attractions amongst which we might luxuriate, were some fine specimens of artistic skill in the designing department which excited much admiration, among which was one-a flower gar- [garden] den and cottage by Mr. John Hold, cottage gardener; and others, by William Kirby and William Shaw.

BarnsLtEY [Barnsley] Market Tou, [To] FREeE.-The [Free.-The] greengrocers and hucksters who stand in the Barnsley market, held a tea party on Monday last, to celebrate their recent achievement, in having, by the trial Townend v. Wood- [Woodruff] ruff, rendered the Barnsley market toll free. For a considerable period it has been maintained by Messrs. Burrows, Townend, Horsefield, and others, that the levying of toll in this market was an imposition. Having instituted enquiries, and traced the market back through various centuries, they were of opinion that no grounds existed upon which any title could be produced... Mr. Joseph W ving [vine] come, or assuming he had 'become, the lessor of the tolls, removed some Wentworth, Esq. ; ay polices and other goods, belonging to Mr. Sampson 'ownend, [Townend] for non-payment of tolls. Mr. Townend and others, anxious to bring the case to an issue, commenced an agitation and ised [used] a committee, who collected Wook [Wool] ant instituted legal proceedings st Mr. Wi for The action has been brought to a conclusion by Mr. Woodruff paying damages, which amount to 104. Considerable interest has been mani- [manifested] fested [rested] throughout the proceedings, and the public have contributed liberally on the part of Townend towards the expenses. On the proceedings being brought to a conclusion, the committee resolved to hold a public dinner on Monday the 25th ult., and a tea party on Monday last, in commemoration of this important achievement. The dinner was prepared by Mr. George Stringer, Queen's Head Inn, when the committee and about forty of their friends did ample justice to the ex- [excellent] cellent [excellent] viands. After Mr. Joseph Winter had been called to the chair, Messrs. Burrows, Horsefield, and others addressed the meeting, congratulating them on their success. Much dissatisfaction was expressed at the charges made by their attorney Mr. James Tootit. [Toot] It was stated that when they had employed Mr. Tootit [Toot] On a former occasion, he had acted towards them in an 'honourable manner; but on the present occasion he had made outa [out] bill, the particulars of which occupied eighteen closely written folio pages, and made the com- [committee] mittee [matter] his debtors in no less a sum than 120 2s. 9d. After several toasts had been enthusiastically given- [given among] among which were The Committee, The Sub- [Subscribers] scribers, [scribblers, and Mr. Burrows, who has acted energeti- [energy- energetically] cally [call] in his endeavours to bring the case to an issue-the party enjoyed themselves until a late hour. The tea party was announced to be held in the Market Place in the open air, after which dancing was to take place, but, owing to the boisterous state of the weather, it was held at the Wire Trellis Inn, when about seventy individuals consisting chiefly of females, regaled themselves. After 'tea, some of the party turned out into the Market Place for a dance; but the assemblage had become so dense, that sufficient space could not be made for that purpose, rand they were therefore compelled to go back to the ETrellis [Trellis] Inn. However, about eleven o'clock at night, 'the quadrille band, which had been engaged specially for the occasion, was ordered out into the Market Place, 'and dancing was commenced by the worthy dames, 'whose spirits had become somewhat elated. Rossery.-On [Rosebery.-On] Sunday last, or early on Monday 'morning, some person or persons entered the counting- [counting house] house of Messrs Pigott and Newton, at Shaw's Mill, and 'stole several articles therefrom. A reward of 20 is 'offered 15. by Messrs. Pigott and Newton, and 5 by the Barnsley Association for the Prosecution of Felons) -to any person who will give information that may lead to the apprehension and conviction of the offenders. Mersopists.-On Sunday last two sermons were preached in the chapel belonging to the above society; one in the morning at half-past ten, by the Rev. Mr. Ripon, of Wakeficld; [Wakefield] and the other in the evening at half-past six, by Mr. M. R. Molyneaux, [Molyneux] an expelled local preacher from Rotherham. A collection was made at the close of each sermon in aid of the chapel fund amounting to 1 10s. CLAYTON WEST. On Saturday last, the Horticultural Society connected with the cottagers in the employ of W. Walker, Esq., Spring-grove factory, Clayton West, held their second annual exhibition in the Wesleyan school-room, which was very tastefully decorated with flowers and ever- [evergreens] greens, and exceeded in beauteous appearance the former year. Previous to the exhibition, a tea party was held in a room appropriated to the purpose by Mr. Walker, when about seventy sat down to enjoy the social repast. Having done ample justice to the pro- [provisions] visions, which were supplied in abundance. The Rev. 'Mr. Smith gave out the verse usually sung at the Floss of social tea parties, and the company adjourned to witness the exhibition. The vegetables were of the finest description, and a large number of prizes had been awarded by the judges-proving that it was with difficulty they could come to their decision, the com- [competitors] 'petitors [competitors] having produced such excellent vegetables. Various devices, and a number of beautiful flewers [flowers] also graced the tables. Soon after six o'clock p.m., William Walker, Esq., president, took the chair, and read over the list of successful competitors, and in some suitable observations, expressed the pleasure he felt in meeting them, and seeing their excellent productions. He then announced that to a large number of the prizes, it was -his intention to give additional sums of money, to encourage and stimulate to greater exertion. After speaking for some time in praise of their industry, and offering them counsel, he observed there were other persons who would address them, and he had great pleasure in introducing to them their friend and neighbour the Rev. Mr. Smith, the latter of whom expressed the pleasure he felt in meeting them at this their second annual exhibition. He then rapidly glanced at the changing scenes which had been witnessed by them during the twelve-months which had rolled onward since they unitedly assembled at the first annual meeting. The dreariness and sterility of winter had passed away-the loveliness and verdure of-spring had been witnessed-the beauty and richness of summer were passing, and the mellowness and fruit- [fruitfulness] 'fulness [Furness] of autumn commencing-all taught us an im- [in- important] portant [important] lesson-may we be wise to profit by it. He referred to several topics connected with their industry and perseverance, their success and disappointment, and was much cheered on closing. Mr. E. Green then addressed the assembly in a practical speech of some length, and offered observations full of weight to the cottagers, which if they remembered, and act upon his advice, must prove essentially useful. Votes of thanks were proposed to the judges for their kindness, to Mr. Smith for his able address, and to the chairman for his urbanity and kindness in presiding, which being ac- [acknowledged] knowledged, [knowledge] the meeting separated. An efficient brass band contributed to the pleasure of the evening. SADDLEWORTH. FataL [Fatal] Gig AccriDENT.-On [Accident.-On] Thursday evening, the 27th ult., Mr. Joseph Bradbury, of the Black Swan Inn, Bottom-o'th-Moor, and a companion, were thrown violently from a gig, a little below Lydgate, on the road leading from Uppermill [Upper mill] to Oldham, and were very severely injured, the gig being at the same time broken to pieces. Mr. Bradbury died of the injuries thus re- [received] ceived [received] on the following Saturday morning, and his com- [companion] panion [anion] is confined to his bed. Both parties, it is stated, were intoxicated, and were driving very furiously. It is remarkable that the horse was used by Mr. Bradbury, on the day of the accident, for the first time since its re- [recovery] covery [cover] from a person who had previously stolen it, and who was recently transported for seven years for the crime. EMBEZZLEMENT BY A PortEer.-One [Porter.-One] of the porters at the Mossley Brow Station, of the London and North-Western Railway, was taken into custody on the 21st ult., for embezzling money belonging to his em- [employers] ployers, [players] obtained by the nefarious disposal of a great number of tickets for the Saddleworth cheap trip to York. The man confessed that he had appropriated about 18s., but it is said that the amount was really about 5. Rartway [Railway] Excursion to York.-On Monday, the 26th ult.,a monster train started from the Mossley Brow Station, soon after 6 a.m., calling at Greenfield, Saddleworth, and Diggle Stations, to take passengers up for the cheap trip to York. Twelve hundred persons were in the train; the day was fine, no accident occurred, and everything passed off very satisfactorily, excepting the long time consumed on the road in going, as it was nearly noon before the arrival at York. Much time was lost owing to there only being one engine to the train. The passengers en- [enjoyed] joyed their trip very much, and got home between ten and eleven o'clock in the evening. CuEaP [Cheap] Trip to LIveRPOOL. [Liverpool] On Tuesday last, a cheap trip from Saddleworth to Liverpool took place. The arrangements were only made late on the previous Saturday, yet notwithstanding this short notice, and the previous termination of the Saddleworth wakes, a very orderly and respectable company of from 350 to 400 persons assembled at the station at six o'clock a.m., the time named in the placards for starting, and very patiently waited for the appearance of the train, which through some awkward blunder or censurable neglect, was fully two hours and a quarter later in starting than the time appointed. The station-master, Mr. Hirst, by his civility and good nature, did much to mitigate a dissatisfaction which was too reasonable. With the exception of the delay in the morning, all went on as well as could be desired. The train arrived at Liver- [Liverpool] pool about ha f-past ten, and got back to Saddleworth at 10 20 p.m. Numbers who never before saw Liverpool or the sea, had this day eight hours for the gratification of their curiosity, and all enjoyed themselves very much. Such trips as this, and the one to York, will do a great deal of good in a variety of ways, and they deserve to be encouraged rather than discouraged, though some of our moralists and economists denounce them as injurious. --- THE MANNINGS [MANNING] AND THEIR a sitting of the Gravesend bench of magistrates, last week, Mr. Essex, pawnbroker, of that town, applied to them for advice under the following circumstances -Mr. Essex stated that a short time before te 8 Poach A ventior [invention] by the Mannings, [Manning] a man, who gave the name of Brown, pledged wo him bl watch for 2. Some months after the con- [conviction] viction [fiction] of the Mannings [Manning] for the murder, he (Mr. Essex) received a letter from a solicitor in London, claiming the watch so pl as the property of the murdered man. Mr. Essex declined giving it up until he should be paid the deposit upon it and interest thereon, at the same time that he admitted that the person pledging it fully answered the description of Manning. Essex then proceeded to state that he had that morning received a letter from the same solicitor, demanding, on the part of the adminis- [admin- administrator] trator [orator] to the effects of the late Mr. Patrick O'Connor, an immediate delivery of the article in question, on the payment to him of the 2 and the interest. A gentleman present said that the Rev. Mr. O'Connor, brother to the mourdered [murdered] man, had administrated, as next of kin, and that the solicitor alluded to by Mr. Essex was, as he be- [believed] lieved, [lived] law agent in the transaction. The magistrates 5 to give up the watch on being well assured that the party demanding it was duly authorised by the administrator to the late Patrick O'Connor to receive it. In reply to the bench, Mr. Essex said that the value of the watch might be about 7, and, from what he now knew, he had no doubt that the man who pledged it in his shop was Manning. Mr. Essex, being repaid his deposit and interest, subsequently gave the article up to the solicitor claiming it for the CORRESPONDENCE. THE LATE ELECTION OF COMMISSIONERS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE. Sm-The gas-party were very busy at the election yesterday, in trying to get parties to vote for the gas nominees, and, it is my opinion, that Mr. C. S. Floyd would have been returned, had not a certain party within twenty miles of the north west corner of the MARKET-PLACE, have reported it, that he (Mr. Floyd) could not stand because he resided above five miles from the Market-place, and if elected he 2s a Commis- [Comms- Commissioners] SIONER [SOONER] would oppose him. . I remain, Sir, your obedient servant, . ANTI-GAS-MONOPOLY. Huddersfield, September 6th, 1850. - a --- THE LETTER DELIVERY OF HUDDERSFIELD IO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE. Sir,-Seeing the many improvements that are being effected through the aid of your valuable paper, there is one that I wish to call attention to, and that is the round-about way in which the letters are delivered in our division of the town. I live within one and a half minute's walk of the Post-office, and have for years been in the habit of receiving my letters a few minutes past eight o'clock in the morning, but now, under Mr. Moore's new arrangements, I do not receive them till after eleven o'clock, after they have been carried a mile round the outskirts of the town. I have made several complaints to the post-master of the late hour that I re- [receive] ceive [receive] my letters, and the answer I get is, that somebody must be late. I ask, should those who live nearest the Post-office be late Hoping that some improvement can be effected, as I think in this badly-managed busi- [bus- business] ness, by calling attention to the above, you will oblige Yours truly, ALEXANDER GLENDINNING, [Glen dinning] St. Peter-street. Huddersfield, Sept. 4th, 1856. a THE POLICE AND THE SOLICITORS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, Str,-I [St,-I] did hope that my reply to the report of the Watch Committee of the Huddersfield Commis ioners [Comms owners] would have been a sufficient explanation of my conduct, as representative of the solicitors who signed the memorial to the Commissioners against the police for their alleged interference in magisterial business) before such Committee. Iam [I am] much surprised to find in your paper a personal attack upon myself and feel called upon to answer it. In the first place, I deny that the memorial was mainly promoted by me; I also deny (as I have h'therto [h'that] done) the allegation that I did not wish to press the charges, and that I should prefer that the investigation was not gone into. As to the two letters which they say Z had prepared for the Watch Com- [Committee] mittee, [matter] I can only say J did not prepare them-they are wholly written by the parties who signed them, and are not prepared by me; and whatever Mr. John North, jun., himself may have written to the contrary-that T him to sign a paper, it is, nevertheless, true that the whole body of the letter published by me was in his own hand writing and his own version of the facts therein contained. He is perfectly welcome to the benefit of his own stultification in this affair. Now, as to the charges against me of appearing as solicitor in the case without engagement or instruction of any kind from the prosecutor, and to prove which they mention two cases one an assault with intent, which took place at Almondbury (a full report of which appeared in the Huddersfield Chronicle of the 27th of July last), in that case I admit the constable of Almondbury did employ me, and how A stranger is knocked down, and an attempt at violation made; she instructs him (ajter [after] the party charged with the assault is in custody) to bring to her an attorney to take down her examination-he employed me for that 'purpose and he will pay me. With this Messrs. Townend and Thomas have nothing to do. Surely every man has a right to employ his own attorney. The second case is one against two persons named Balmforth and Pearson, for a robbery committed on one Benjamin Garside. Thomas and Townend (very wise in their own conceit) got a certificate signed by Garside, saying that he did not engage me in that prose- [prosecution] cution. [caution] No doubt they think this a very great hit, and that it is unanswerable. Now, sir, I admit that he did not employ me, and that he did not intend to employ any one else-and why Because after he hud [HUD] given informa- [inform- information] tion [ion] to the Constable of having been robbed, and afier [after] expenses had been incurred by the Constable in apprehend- [apprehending] ing the prisoners, he received 15s. to compound the felony, and was very loth to proceed. Now, sir, there isa rule of Quarter Sessions (of which Thomas and Townend are perfectly aware) that when a Constable apprehends a prisoner on a charge of felony, in conse- [cone- consequence] quence [Queen] of information received, and such prisoner, though brought before the magistrates, is not committed to take his trial, no costs of such apprehension will be allowed. The Constable in that case wished me to watch the case for him that the prosecutor might not by refusing to give evidence, or by any other act by which the prisoners would be discharged, deprive him of his expense sof [of] apprehension. I did attend, and both Thomas and Townend know of the severe remarks made to the prosecutor by the magistrates on the bench on his conduct in the case, telling him that he had very nearly rendered himself liable to an indictment for compounding a felony. They committed the prisoners. Even to this moment the prosecutor refuses to interfere in the case, and the constable is therefore compelled to employ a solicitor to conduct it. A constable of an out-township is not like the police of Huddersfield. He does not receive a salary as they do; he is obliged to work for his daily bread, and can ill afford (when information is given him of a felony having been com- [committed] mitted) [fitted] to incur any expense in apprehending a prisoner without achance [chance] of having it returned; nevertheless he is bound equally with the Huddersfield police, when called upcn [upon] to do Lis [Is] duty, if no', he wou d [you d] be heavily fined. Another charge is brought against me that at the last Bradford Sessions-T left my case without any one in charge of it. Thomas is not honest in this-he well. knows the circumstances were as follow -The indictment was taken out early. Thomas agreed to take it before the Grand Jury and to press it on as quickly as possible. I was very anxious to have it heard on the first day of Sessions on account of a lady who wasa [was] witness in the case being ina delicate state of health and having her baby with her. But Thomas could not do without his dinner that he must have. He knew that if he could stay until next day he would get an extra day's allowance. I sought him at the Inn where he was dining, but he could not leave, and I was compelled ultimately to take it from him and send it before the Grand Jury myself, then too late to be tried that evening. He also knew that I must be in Huddersfield on the following morning to attend the County Court. When I did leave on the night of the Sessions, I gave such instructions to counsel as were requisite and necessary, and told him I was obliged to go away but would return as early as possible on the following morning. Had it not been that my business at the County Court detained me I should have been in Brad- [Bradford] ford in time for the hearing, but I was unfortunately too late. Mr. Thomas takes great credit to himself in say- [saying] ing that in addition to giving evidence and looking after the witnesses (there were only two ladies), he had also to instruct counsel, and suggest important points (not in the brief) which tended to insure the con- [conviction] viction, [fiction] I amsure [measure] I ought to feel very grateful to Mr. Thomas for his great assistance in the affair, and when T am fast for a happy suggestion to apply to him. As to the other parties who signed the memorial charged with inattention to cases placed in my hands, also of being in bed instead of being at Court, and of non- [nonpayment] payment of witnesses their full county allowance as soon as the trial is over I must leave such who are guilty of those practices to answer for themselves they do not apply to me; and therefore I have nothing to do with them. My object in this letter is simply to rebut the personal attacks made upon me and not to mix myself with charges against other people. In conclusion, will you allow me to thank you for the trouble I have occasioned you by my letters upon this matter. I am, Sir, your's, &e., WM. DRANSFIELD. King-street, Huddersfield, August 28rd, 1850. oe NIGHT RIOTS IN HUDDERSFIELD. TO OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE. Srr,-I [Sir,-I] had not intended to have troubled you again with another letter, had not my friend Civis Civil been so lavish in his remarks in your last Saturday's paper. It is a pity that my friend Civis Civil should have found out his man so early, for a cessation of his letters will be a source of grief to the public, who no doubt have been much edified whilst reading the splendid and brilliant productions of a man with such high qualifi- [qualified- qualifications] cations; though for myself I see nothing in his writing but what is low, mean, and ungentlemanly, breathing a spirit of bigotry and intolerance, befitting a vain and ambitious mind. My friend Civis Civil seems to think that all the intelli- [until- intelligence] gence [Gents] in the world is concentrated under his own hat, or he would not have stated that my letter was drawn up by some cunning lawyer. I shall only say, in reply to such an untruth, that my friend has made himself a complete laughing-stock with his remark to all those who are most acquainted with me; but I have no ob- [objection] Jection [Section] to be considered by my friend as a mere nonce, or even as a nizzy. dizzy. I have had too much experience in the world to be offended by any such epithets, and have no objection to travel on the rugged and up-hill path through life, providing I can do so quietly; but if on my journey I should happen to come in contact with some moral assassin, like my friend, I will give him no quarter. No, I will not allow him to escape, with all his carping and his quibbles. My friend says he knows his man. I beg to say he knows me but very imperfectly, yet he must have another conference with my slippery and quondam friend, the Ratepayer. No doubt he is capable of telling him anything and everything, and my friend Civis Civil can write down his promptings as facts, for I find very little that is original in his letters. My friend Civis Civil seems to think he has found a mare's-nest in the evidence I produced along with my last letter. He has thought proper to distort that evi- [vi- evidence] dence, [dene] and attempted to handle it very deceitfully, bat I will not allow him todo [too] so. Being a cunning lawyer, I shall watch my learned friend, and see that he does not invalidate or fritter away that evidence by any sophistry whatever. No. He shall have it whole and entire for if my learned friend does not know, I will tell him, that by selecting words or quoting disjointed passages from any book, paper, or pamphlet, he may make them say what he pleases, and very often quite the contrary of what they are or ever were intended to be. I will give my learned friend another quotation from that same evidence, isolated in like manner- [manner we] have no cause for complaint. Now, Mr. Editor, why did not my learned friend select the above for his guidance Why, for a very obvious reason-it would not have suited his purpose. He ventured forth at the outset with a false statement, and in order to bolster up his tale he resorts to a very irrational and absurd mode of reasoning. My learned friend says he shall not write any more newspaper letters. All this is very good, unless he cam learn to have a little more respect for truth, for it is quite evident he had intended to give the watchmen cowardly phillip [Phillip] in the dark, without giving them an opportunity of knowing from whence the blow pro- [proceeded] ceeded, [needed] or he would have given his name and address. But my friend is caught im [in] the trap he had laid for others. And now, Mr. Editor, I wish to give my learned friend a little wholesome advice, never to think too much of himself, and too little of others, however humble their station in life. I would also advise my friend to study the maxims of Dr Franklin, who was a very amiable and kind-hearted man. Should my learned friend break throvgh [through] his resolve, and try his hand again at newspaper letter-writing, he has only to come down to my house, and while he sits and smokes his pipe, I will prepare a reply, and show him the capabilities of a cunning lawyer. Iam, [I am] Mr. Editor, yours truly, ABRAHAM NORTH. Thomas-street, 4th September, 1850. Civis Civil and Abraham North have already had equal privileges awarded them in our columns, and, following the bad example of the majority of corres- [cores- correspondents] pondents, [respondents] both have lost sight of the argument and indulged in personalities, which can serve no good purpose, but which at the same time occupy space m [in] our colunms [columns] to the exclusion of more important matter. So long as there was a point of fact in dispute, we wil- [willingly] lingly [singly] made the sacrifice, and hope to be always enabled to do so where the general public are interested. State- [Statements] ments [rents] and counter-statements have now been made ; the public will draw their own inferences from the facts adduced; and, if any remedy be needed in the arrangement of the night-police, we trust that a respect ful [full] request will be made to the Watch and Lighting Committee, who, we feel assured, will look into any properly authenticated charge which may be laid before them.-Eb. H. C. ----- PUBLIC BATHS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE. Str,-For [St,-For] a week or two past I have looked through your paper in expectation that some of your numerous correspondents would again set forth the want of good baths in the town of Huddersfield. Though the season is Just now over, with your per- [permission] mission I will again bring the subject before your readers, in hope that, by perseverance, efficient bathing accommodation will be provided for the ensuing year. Till within the last few years no people were so ill pro vided [sided] with baths as the English; but, our intercourse with the Continent has produced a great and most auspicious change in this respect. Few prosperous families now find their houses complete without the means of domestic bathing. In the cities and larger towns baths and washhouses are becoming numerous, and admirably constructed for economy and comfort; then why should not the rising and prosperous town of Huddersfield follow their example In the best class of public baths in London, such as those in St. Martin's Fields, any one can command a warm bath, approaching in their character to elegance, for sizxpence, [sixpence] and a cold one for thieepence. [thence] Of the second-class, where all is neat and clean, a warm bath for threepence, and a cold one for three hatf-pence. [hat-pence] Of this delightful recreation so many thousands avail themselves in the London baths that the speculation is a most profitable one; and there is no doubt that if the Huddersfield Commissioners were to erect commodious baths, on a similar principle, and in a convenient situa- [sta- situation] tion, [ion] they would find them to answer equally satisfac- [satisfaction- satisfactorily] torily. [truly] The taste for bathing is rapidly spreading throughout the kingdom, and baths are erecting in a great number of towns; but this satisfactory state of things has net yet reached us. The constant and rapid progress of popu- [Pope- population] lation, [nation] and the consequent advance in the value of pre- [property] perty, [petty] is fast cutting off the old facilities for bathing. So far from persons now finding secure retreats in woods and retired places where they might bathe (as Thomson describes the Jadics [Medics] of his time doing) men now can rarely find an open river or sheet of water where they cau [ca] bathe without giving offence either to public feeling or private claims. Have we not scen [scene] the opportunities for public bathing receding for years before the march of popula- [popular- population] tion [ion] and proprietary assumption here the town has ex- [extended] tended itself there watcrworks [waterworks] have sprung up here weods [woods] haye [hay] been shut up there land has been enclosed and, in mest [meat] places, the farmers have grown jealous of their grass and thus one of the chief pleasures of sum- [summer] mer [Mr] is seriously menaced. For years it has been the custom to bathe in the canal, but the proprietors have driven bathers away, on the plea that they injured the banks and those streams which a beneficient [beneficial] God has caused freely to flow through the country, for the good of all, polluted by the contents of drains, and the refuse of the numerous dye- [dyehouse] houses erected on their banks. Canal and water-com- [companies] panies [Panis] are empowered to expel every one from the natural, healthy, and necessary enjoyment of their water. Here is a great and growing want, an incon- [income- inconvenience] venience [convenience] which demands the thought and remedy which belong to an age profoundly engaged in sanitary measures. May we not avail ourselves of the example of other towns; and let us hope that in the rapid pro gress [grass] of the improvement of our town suitable bathing accommodation will be provided, in which all may enjoy this recreation with the maintenance of the completest public decorum, so that, in this respect, we may not be behind other towns, which are inferior to ours in every other. Hoping the importance of the subject is suffi- [suffer- sufficient] cient [cent] excuse for the length to which I have gone, I remain yours, &e., A LOVER OF HEALTH AND EXERCISE.
