8 PTEMBER [Pt ember] 7, 1850. LANCASHIRE AND YORKSHIRE RAILWAY. i half-yearly meeting of this company wae [we] eld [ed] ct whan [when] on Wednesday. There was a attendance of proprietors. Mr. Heary [Hear] Houldsworth ening [ending] the business of the meeting, there could at the present meeting be but upon which any considerable difference of inion [Union] could exist, and he had such a vivid recollection of circumstances of the last meeting, when considerable ity [it] took place, that he should, so far as he could page ee ly insist upon a greater degree of order being DunsTaN, [Dunstan] the secretary, then read the report, which stated that the amount received on calls to the 30th of June, was 7,558,362; six per cent stock, 793,265 loans covered by shares, 1,299,945; loans not covered by shares, 1,575,610 total received, 11,227,183; calls in arrear, [area] 293,683. The amount of capital expended and chargeable to revenue on the 30th of June, was 9,700,000, being an increase of 1,000,690 during the past six months. The total receipts on revenue account during the half-year amounted to 330,917, and the disbursements to 146,192, including 10,910 for rates and taxes. The effect of the opening of new branches, in increasing tempo- [temporarily] rarily [rarely] the proportion of working expenses to receipts, ad- [adverted] verted [averted] to in the last report, still operates to some extent, but will diminish in the course of next year; and the advance in rates, authorised by the act of parliament obtained in the last session, will all tend to lesson the pro- [proportion] portion of working expenses for the future. rhs [ths] are glad to report that the bill which they introduced in i f rates has received the royal pealtamsestt [palmiest] for an increase of rat in 1844 ta assent. When the company decided, in 1844, to promo h and take part in those extensions which occupied so muc [much] of their time and attention in subsequent sessions of fon [on] - liament, [Parliament] they proceeded on the unde standing [under standing] derived from the reports of Mr. Gladstone's committee of that year, that the legislature would act on the principle therein recom- [com- recommended] mended, of discouraging the outlay of double capital for one and the same object, by which course the traftic [traffic] would have been less subdivided, and the then existing companies enabled, through the concentration af the business on a smaller number of lines, to work at lower rates. But since the wise suggestions of the committee, and the enlarged views of the Board of Trade under Lord Dalhousie, were altogether disregarded by parliament, and the undue mul- [mu- multiplication] tiplication [application] of parallel lines has not only restricted, but in too many cases swept away, profit, the directors thought they could appeal with justice to periment [experiment] to rectify, to some extent at least, by a pa restoration of rates, the error committed. In this hope, notwithstanding the adverse report of the Railway Coinmissioners, [Coin missioners] the have not been disappointed, and they feel satisfaction at the result, not alone because of the benefit the proprietors may derive from the measure, but also because it may be taken as an evidence that parliament at all events is no longer of opinion that so great and successful a system of intercom- [intercommunication] munication, [communication] costing hundreds of millions of money, alto- [altogether] gether [ether] the result of private enterprise, and far assing [passing] the united public works of all preceding times, should con- [continue] tinue [tine] unremunerative [remunerative] through restrictions imposed under erroneous views of what the railway system could afford. The great desideratum towards closing the capital account -viz., the completion of the works in progress-is nearly arrived at, the whole of the works which the company had in hand, with the exception of about 2 miles between Hali- [Hail- Halifax] fax and Sowerby-bridge being now opened for traffic. The portion of unfinished line alluded to, together with a diver- [diversion] sion of 2 miles of the Preston and Wyre line, now making by the London and North-Western Company and this com- [company] pany [any] at Fleetwood, comprise all that now remains to be opened, and will be completed within the present year. Under these circumstances it is proposed, that from the present time the total capital shown to have been expended at the commencement of each half-year shall be taken as the capital chargeable against the revenue of such half-year, Thus the amount of capital for which the revenue of the current half-year will have to provide, will be 11,122,000. The length of line, constructed exclusively with funds now included in the capital, will be 198 miles; company's pro- [proportion] portion of guaranteed leased lines, 443 miles; making to- [together] gether [ether] 2423 miles The weekly published traffic for the future will include the gross receipts of the above 2424 miles, and two-fifths of the receipts of the Bolton, Blackburn, and Clithero [Clothier] lines, 243 miles in length, on which the company re- [receives] ceives [receives] 40 per cent of the gross receipts for working the same, 10 making in all 2523 miles. The balance of revenue fur the past half-year, applicable to dividend and interest, amounts to 177,229. The directors recommend that a dividend at the rate of 2 per cent per annum, less income-tax, be declared, which will leave a balance of 18,828 to be carried forward to the next account. The legal decision affecting the fifth shares has not yet been ob- [obtained] tained. [gained] The directors are persuaded that the chicf [chief] source of improvement will be found in the progressive development of the traffic. Reviewing the amalgamated or leased lines seriatim, it may be justly stated of the Barnsley line that until the communications now making by coal owners are complete, the full measure of traffic cannot be known that the 30 miles between Manchester and Preston already yield a higher return than the parent line, including its branches; that the Liverpool and Bury line is rapidly improving in income, and after the Huddersfield line was sanctioned. by Parliament stood in so important a relation to the Liverpool and Yorkshire traflic [traffic] as fully to justify the arrangement. The Preston and Wyre line was not expected at the time of the arrangement to remunerate the company for some years; but the loss, so far, exceeds the directors' anticipa- [anticipate- anticipations] tions [tins] but in considering this loss credit should be given for the circumstance that an amount of traffic of from 15,000 to 20,000 per annum would have been diverted from the company's lines if the Preston and Wyre line had formed part of a neighbouring system. The engineer's reports states that only remaining portion of the unfinished works -viz., that part of the West Riding Union Railway between Halifax and Sowerby-bridge-will be completed within the present én The CHAIRMAN, after answering one or two trifling ob- [objections] jections [sections] to the statement of accounts, said the reduction of the dividend to 2 per cent. must be a matter of regret to all the shareholders, but he hoped they might be able to look upon it a tuture [future] time as the turning point in the his- [history] tory of this railway. They had approached that point in the history of their affairs when it would begin to wear a more satisfatory [satisfactory] aspect than it had hitherto done. It had been said that the directors were chargeable with the pre- [present] sent condition of the line, and that the present condition of the line, and that to causes under their control was attribut- [attribute- attributable] able the present depeciation [depreciation] of the company's property. But many causes operated to reduce the dividend which were entirely out of the control of the directors, He did not make that assertion with the view to lessen in any degree any amount of blame which might fainly [Finlay] and justly be placed upon their shoulders, for the results of their Management had not shown them to be very successful hitherto. The chief causes which had operated to produce a reduction of dividend were the abstraction of traffic by the multiplication of competing lines, and the reduced tariff. At an early period he (the chairman) saw the in- [injurious] jurious [curious] effect of the reduced tariff, and called the attention of the shareholders to the fact that unless they had higher rates of remuneration for the work which they did it was in vain to look for profit; and thedirectors, [the directors] acting underthesame [undergoes] impression, applied to Parliament last session, and success- [successfully] fully carried a bill by which the rates were partially restored. (Hear, hear.) Another important consideration was this- [this while] while the capital chargeable to revenue had been increasing half-yearly at the rate of 1,000,000 to 1,500,000, their gross receipts had been almost stationary. (Hear.) In four half-years their gross receipts had only advanced 15,000. The accountant had made calculations which showed clearly the effect of reductions in the rates, coupled with the abstraction of through traffic, which had reduced their annual income 60,000. (Hear, hear.) Another reason for the reduction of the dividend, arising from a very natural cause, was that when this company paid an 8 per cent dividend the capital was 3,400,000, 1,800,000 of which was borrowed at about 4 percent. They had not paid up one half of their capital. (Hear, hear.) Nowthat [Now that] they had paid up the whole amount, that fact alone was sufficient to reduce the dividend to 13 per cent. He trusted the shareholders would see that the causes thus operating were of a very temporary nature; and that a little time- [time though] though not so early as might originally have been supposed -would revive the value of their property. At the last meeting a long discussion took place upon the form of the constitution of the board a committee had been appointed to confer with the directors upon the subject, and the mat- [matter] ter [te] would be taken into consideration at a subsequent period. He would now move- [move] eu bes ny of the report of the directors as does not relate reconstruction i and adopted, and that the accounts ap to the goth of Jane bs Mr. Harper seconded the motion. Mr. D. Price said, he understood that their engineer, Mr. Hawkshaw, had been appointed to the office at a salary of 5,000 a year, which was to remunerate him for all work done by him. He wanted to know whether he had not received 24,000 from the Liverpool, Manchester, and Newcastle Company and whether that amount had gone the of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Company oO The CuarrnMan [Juryman] said, that Mr. Hawkshaw had been ap- [appointed] pointed at the sum named, but he had voluntarily sub- [submitted] mitted [fitted] to a reduction of 2,500 per annum. Mr. HawksHaw [Hawks] said he had accounted for ante fom [from] the Newcastle Company, because one of those companies to which his agreement wi 'ire and Yorkshire Company extended, mith [Smith] the Mr. Price complained of the immense outlay of 145 683 on the Ardwick Junction, and 319,687 on the Burnley branch and he did not see how any manager receiving 5,000 a-year could be excused for recommending the ex- [end] D oe ot such a umn. [um] ee ened [end] to move for the pub- [publication] fication [fiction] appointments and salari [salary] i of upwards of 100 a-year, (Applause. ynder [under] this company Mr. Mowatt, [Matt] M.P., hoped that when the deplorable con- [condition] dition [edition] of the line was considered no objection would be made to such a motion. oa The CHAIRMAN said he had no objection individ [dividend] the proposal but as the board was about to be tuted, [tute] he could not speak for those who might come into no money re- [re that] that was not The resolution was carried. Mr. Roperts, [Roberts] of Chester, said he considered the engi- [engine- engineer] neer's [near's] salary much too large. In fact, so long as they found work for lawyers and engineers there would be no end to the ex nausting [trusting] of capital. He proposed that the service of an engineer in chief should be di with, and thata [that] resident engineer should be appointed at a salary of 500 a-year. Mr. HawksHaw [Hawks] said, the views of Mr. Roberts were entirely reciprocated by himself, and he should himself say, So soon as these Works are completed you do not require an engineer in chief. He had a very large interest in the railway, and should be sorry to see the practice long conti- [cont- continued] nued. [ned] (Applause.) He would promise to the best of his ability to wind up the contractor's accounts, and it would be the greatest possible relief to him to get rid of the (Hoar) which had been laid upon his shoulders. Mr. Roberts' motion was put and carried. ton Mowarr [Mow arr] protested against the report of the direc- [direct- director] oe it turned out that, of the whole of the vast . which had been ived, [ives] there was only 52,060 epblicable [applicable] to dividend amongst the shareholders. Instead t t thant [that] a legitimate subject for glorification, he hough ae terms of the report wero [were] insulting to his cote nding. [ending] (Applause.) And as for the increased re- [reese] ere an ed, he had reason to believe, ceipts [receipts] from local authority, that it tbe [the] of a good not be the neat of a diminution of their present company tan oft of the line excursion trips and the THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, SE The report was then put and received, the word adopted having been wi wn. . On the motion of Mr. LEEMAN, it was decided that in future the rt should be printed and placed in the hands of the shareholders, together with the accounts, at least seven days before each half-yearly meeting. ed, Mr. CoaTEs [Coated] (of London) addressed the meeting on be- [behalf] half of a body of shareholders, who had not bene [been] included in list of those about to rece've [race've] dividen [dividend] He would ask the directors whether they believed they could carry on the company, with anything tke [the] fe, themselves, if they took into their own pockets oad [ad] to other people's money, giving those other men no a sing farthing of interest for the money thus appropria' [appropriate] d n stating the cas2 [case] of the Fifth shareholders he should not look at it as a legal question, though he knew the strong foundation which they had in law to build upon. (Hear, hear.) So soon as that questien [question] should come before a ublic [public] tribunal (which it must do unless the directors chose to do the shareholders justice) the right of the Fifth shareholders would be affirmed; during the ion of that matter the affairs of the company would be suspended, the dividends stopped, and the company would be put in a worse position by an expensive litigation than they would be by assigning to the Fifth shareholders that share of the profit to which they were entitled. The directors had reduced themselves to this absurd dilemma, that in their interpretation of the agreement not only were the Fifth shareholders not entitled to dividend, but they were at this moment indebted to the company, and could be called upon for an annual payment, so that either the board was tampering with the interests of the general shareholders in not calling upon the Fifth shareholders for 2s. per share as interest upon the sum not called up, or the Fifth share- [shareholders] holders were entitled to a dividend of 2 per cent with the general shareholders. The company had now 18,800 of balance, out of which that dividend could be paid, and he warned the directors that it would be better to do so than proceed to an expensive litigation. He proposed therefore that the Fifth shareholders be admitted to a dividend with the general shareholders of the company. Mr. Scott seconded the motion. Mr. LEEMAN considered this preceeding [preceding] premature, inas- [ins- inasmuch] much as it had been decided that the matter should be re- [referred] ferred [erred] to the Attorney-General for his opinion. If that opinion were not obtained, he proposed that the question should be referred to a committee of commercial men for their final decision. The CHalRMAN [Chairman] having announced that it was impossible for him to put Mr. Coates' resolution, as it was one which would virtually change the constitution of the com ny Mr. LEEMAN proposed that the whole question should be referred to the chairman of the Bank of England, Mr. Glyn, M.P., the chairman of the London and North- [Northeastern] Western, and Mr. Denison, the chairman of the Great Northern. Let the question on both sides be submitted in writing to the referees and if the gentlemen he named declined to undertake the office, let other gentlemen of a similar class be agreed upon. The Chairman having decided not to put the amendment of Mr. Coates for the admission of the fifth shareholders to dividend with the general shareholders of the company, another amendment was pro by Mr. Coates, to the following effect That it is expedient that the claims of the holders of fifth shares be settled, and that the directors be requested to enter into negotiations with those share- [shareholders] hoiders, [holders] and report the result a special meeting to be held on or before the Ist [Its] of November next. After some discussion this amendment was adopted. Mr. VANCE desired to know whether, under those cir- [circumstances] cumstances, [cum stances] the directors would enforce the call of 1 10s. per share which had recently been made upon the fifths The CHAIRMAN said the board was of opinion that the call could not conveniently be postponed. Mr. W. MaRsHALL [Marshall] said he had already paid his call, and he was in a position to say that it would be highly pre dicial [social] to the interests of the company unless the call were enforced. It wasasacrifice [sacrifice] which the holders of all descrip- [Scrip- descriptions] tions [tins] of stock must make in relative proportions on procuring loans, and he thought it behoved the holders of fifths not to throw any financial obstacles in the way of the board. Hear. A was subsequently obtained from the chairman that the call should not be made at present. The CHAIRMAN then proposed that such of the shares in the Huddersfield and Sheffield Branch as are paid up should be consolidated into stock. The resolution 2 The CuaIrRMAN-then [Crimean-then] introduced what was in reality the vital business of the day, namely, the considering and determining upon the reduction and re-constitution of the board of direction. The meeting had lasted upwards of six hours when the question was introduced; many of the shareholders had left the hall, and those who remained showed palpable symptoms of restless impatience. The chairman described the proceedings at several meetings of the company held since March last, at which it was decided that the number of the directors should be reduced from thirty to twenty, and at which a joint committee of share- [shareholders] holders and directors was appointed to determine upon the mode in which the change could best be effected, so as to introduce sume [sum] new blood into the direction. On the 16th of July this joint committee submitted to the directors the following list, which they proposed should constitute the new board, the first ten gentlemen being previously members of the direction, and the last ten new members of the board -George Anderton, Thomas Broad- [Broadbent] bent, Robert Gill, H. Houldsworth, James Hatton, Edward Harper, William Marshall, William Stuart, George Wilson, Hf. W. Wickham, John Brogden, Thomas Barnes, Ralph Creyke, [Creek] William Evans, Samuel Fielden, J. H ves, [bes] jun Francis Mowatt, [Matt] M.P., James Mellor, Wm. Rawson, and Absalom Watkins. Mr. LEEMAN, of York, objected to the list, on the gronnd [ground] that the Yorkshire towns were not fairly represented. He conceived that all the large towns on the line should be represented, and it had formerly been the practice to have the board constituted half of Yorkshire and half of Lanca- [Lance- Lancashire] shire gentlemen, with the addition of one or two from Lon- [London] don, or a distance. The hon. proprietor submitted a list which would give to Lancashire thirteen, and to York- [Yorkshire] shire nine members, viz That the board be reduced to 22, including the gentlemen who have seats in right of agreement with other companies, and that the following gentlemen constitute the board so reduced -Henry Houlds- [Holds- Houldsworth] worth, George Wilson, John Smith, James Hatton, and Samuel Brooks, Manchester; William Stuart, Liverpool ; R. Gill, Wigan W. Marshall, Preston Captain Laws, near Bolton; C. P. Grenfell [Greenfield] and L. Schuster, London; Joseph Bateson, Leeds William Rand, Bradford Henry W. Wick- [Wickham] ham, Low Moor; George Anderton, Cleckheaton; C. H. Jones, Hudderstield; [Huddersfield] William Moxon, Pontefract; James Audus, [AIDS] Selby; E. B. Beaumont, Barnsley W. Radcliffe, Rochdale; William Hornby, Blackburn 'and that the 16 old directors be requested to reduce themselves to such a number as to admit of the election in their places by the board of all or any of the following gentlemen-Mr. Bot- [Botterill] terill, [trial] Leeds; Mr. Mellor, Liverpool; Mr. J. Ha aves, [vase] Southport Mr. Thomas Barnes, Bolton Mr. Saml. 'ielden, [Fielden] Todmorden; Mr. Ralph Creyke, [Creek] Raweliffe. [Relief] Mr. RoBERTS, [Roberts] of Chester, seconded the motion. Mr. Mowatt [Matt] proposed that the discussion be adjourned to the next day at ten o'clock. This proposal was made at nine o'clock p.m., and the question of adjournment was still being discussed a few minutes before midnight. Mr. GasQUuOIGNE [Gascoigne] proposed that a special meeting to con- [consider] sider [side] the construction of the board should be called for the 2nd of October. This motion was ultimately carried, the meeting having lasted nearly twelve hours. Previous to this Mr. Mowatt [Matt] canvassed the members of the board present, and from them individually obtained a pledge that on the day of the their seats should be at the disposal of the share- [shareholders] olders. [older] A committee of ten gentlemen was appointed to make another selection of a board, to be submitted to the special meeting. --------- EscaPE [Escape] OF AN Assassin.-Peter Leudwig, [Ludwig] one of the assassins of the Prince Lychnowski [Lichens] and General d'Auers- [d'Ayers- Oswald] wald, [wad] who was lately condemned by a criminal Court of Electoral Hesse to hard labour in irons for life, escaped a few days ago from prison, and succeeded in reaching France, It is not Known where he has secreted himself, but the Minister of the Interior, on the application of the Hessian authorities, has given orders that no pains shall be s to catch him, and he has also sent a description of his person to the police and gendarmerie. SUICIDE OF AN ENGLISHMAN IN AMERICA.-A young Englishman, named George Nichols, who had been in this. country about three months, committed suicide about ten o'clock last night, at the house of John Perkins, No. 67, Hamilton-street, by shooting himself through the head with a double-barrelled fowling-piece. There was found in the house after he committed the deed the following - This is my last will and testament. I hereby give and be- [bequeath] queath [death] to my sister, Mary Amelia Taylor, of Driffield (York- [Yorkshire] shire), England, 200. Ialso [Also] give and bequeath to Mary Wither- [therewith] wich, [which] of Grimsby, Lincolnshire, 60, to be paid as soon after my death as possible. GEORGE NICHOLS. No good cause has been assigned for the doed. [died] It is said that for three months he has been trying to procure work, and that all his efforts have proved unavailing, and that this disappointment caused him to commit suicide. The coroner's jury returned a verdict of Premeditated death. -Albany Journal, August 16, ACCIDENT ON THE SOUTH-WESTERN RaILWway.-An [Railway.-An] accident occurred on the above railway on Tuesday night. The 7 p.m. down train left the Waterloo-road station ut the usual hour for Guildford, and proceeded onwards [onward] with- [without] out meeting with any interruption until it had arrived about midway between Esher and Weybridge. Shortly after passing the first-named station the engine-driver espied some moving objects on the line; he therefore shut off the steam and signalled to the guards to apply the breaks, but before they had sufficient time to do so the engine came in contact with the obstruction in front, which was dashed to pieces, and in an instant portions of flesh and blood were scattered over the driver and stoker as well as over several of the carriages. It was then ascertained that a great num- [sum- number] ber [be] of sheep had strolled upon the line from one of the ad- [adjoining] joining meadows, but owing to the train not being impeded in its progress the driver proceeded on his journey, leaving word as he went by the different stations for enquries [enquiries] to be made as to the extent of mischief done. On ednesday [Wednesday] morning it was clearly ascertained that from 20 to 25 sheep had been cut to pieces, and their mangled remains were found scattered in sundry directtons [directions] on the line. They were picked up by the driver of the goods train and conveyed to the nearest station. The animals, it seems, had obtained an entrance upon the line owing to some defect in palings which surrounded the meadow where they were at pasture. MURDER IN TIPPERARY.-Another dreadful cuse [use] of assassination in the South Riding of Tipperary is thus re- [recorded] corded in the Free Press of Thursday -' About six o'clock a.m., on the 29th ult., as Thomas Batters, of Clash- [Clashdrumsmith] drumsmith, [drum smith] was going along the road at Breansha, [Branch] near Breansha, [Branch] ndar [near] Emly, he was fired at from behind a hedge, and wounded in the wrist and thighs with large shot, ing adozen [dozen] wounds. The assigned motive was that Batters was employed as caretaker on crops under seizure for rent, and also finmed [fined] for entertaining the keepers in his house. The unfortunate man lingered until the follow- [following] ing day, when he died at eight p.m. An inquest was held by Mr. C. Hunt, resident magistrate, and Mr. John Ma h, justice of the peace (in the absence of the coroner and the following verdict returned -'We find that the deceased came by his death by receiving a gun- [gunshot] shot wound on the morning of Thursday, the 29th ult., on the road at Breansha, [Branch] by some person or persons unknown, THE LEEDS AND -WEST RIDING BANKERS, MERCHANTS', AND TRADERS' ASSOCIATION FOR THE PROTECTION OF TRADE. The annual meeting of the members of the above society was held on Wednesday last, at the Court-house, Leeds, William Beckett, Esq., M.P., in the chair. Mr. Beckett congratulated the meeting on the flourishing state of the society as exhibited in the large increase of members during the past year. He expatiated on the great advantages afforded by the society to the mercan- [American- mercantile] tile classes for a merely nominal subscription; and highly eulogised Mr. Johnson, the for the close aud [and] judicious attention which he had devoted to its affairs. At the close of Mr. Beckett's address, Mr. Johnson read the following . REPORT, During the ear there has been an accession to the institution of of 360 members, and twc [two] important branches have Poon [Soon] opened at Halifax and Sheffield, where a gratifying prospect exists of obtaining a large number of subscribers. The great advantage of combining the the densely populated localities of the West Riding in this association will be apparent to all; and the committee consider that until the arrangements are completed by which the entire district shall become so blended together, the society will not attain its legitimate position in the country. Measures are, however, steadily progressing for the accomplishment of this object. The society is in mutual communication with the fol- [following] lowing Trade Protection Societies, viz. -In London, seven societies; Liverpool. Manchester, three societies ; Preston, Hull, Bristol, Greenwich, Hastings, Brighton, Bath, Cheltenham, Blackburn, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Chelmsford, Coventry, York, Leicester, Nottingham, Shrewsbury, Wolverhampton, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Dublin with most of which a constant intercourse is kept up. Much information has been obtained for members as to the character and position of persons applying to them for goods through the year, and the instances are numerous in which discoveries have been made that such applications were from unprincipled and dishonest men, who were livin [living] by fraudulently obtaining the property of others. Seve' [See] cases have occurred where persons of this class have been detected and brought to justice during the year in different places, and are now suffering the legal consequences of their conduct. One of the difficulties which honest tradesmen have to contend with in condueting [conducting] business, in the varied forms which deception and fraud A number of people are continually traversing the kingdom, visiting especially the la town and watering places with different kinds of goods, but principally silks and drapery, who, by the most exagpera [exaggerate] and false representations, entrap the unwary into becoming purchasers at extravagent [extravagant] prices, and seriously injure the fair trader. The measures adopted by the committee in all the places in the West Riding where branches have been formed, are calculated fully to ex this nefarious system and in several instances have been the means of preventing ny eXtensive [extensive] sales of goods. A y perseverance in the same course of proceeding will, it is believed, have the effect of ridding West Yorkshire of the presence of such dishonourable persons. A considerable number of members, not only in Leeds, but also at Huddersfield, Bradford, Halifax, Wakefield, Sheffield, and other places, have availed themselves of the facilities which the society offers for the collection of debts, and accounts over due, with so much advantage, as to have superseded, in innumerable instances, the necessity of resorting to the County Court, and thereby saving muc [much] loss of time, trouble, and a good deal of the expense con- [connected] nected [connected] with that medium of recovering debts. wards of 1,000 has been obtained for members during the year ; and this department of the society's operations is steadily on the increase. The committee have no hesitation in stating it in their opinion to be the least expensive, and the most satisfactory system of collecting debts in opera- [operation] tion [ion] in this country. Your committee have had before them in the past year two or three measures which have occupied a good deal of attention, and which, in their opinion, are much calculated to benefit the members. Many of the subscribers have wished the society to obtain for their use a copy of the list of warrants of attorney, and judges' orders, to be issued monthly. The committee found the subject beset with many difficulties, but by perseverance in endeavouring to overcome them, they are now enabled to congratulate the members upon being in a condition to furnish the required information. In connection with some of the other societies, your committee have assisted in taking preparatory steps for obtaining an act for the arrest of debtors contemplating a removal from the kingdom, to the injury of their credi- [credit- creditors] tors-a bill for which has been drawn up. The importance and necessity of such a measure has been acknowledged by some of the highest legal authorites [authorities] in the kingdom, but circumstances prevented an application to the legislature during the past session. It is, however, intended to pro- [prosecute] secute [secure] this measure at an early period after the recess of parliament. It is no longer problematical as to whether institutions of the character of this association are calculated to benefit the community at large; the best, and surest of tests, that of experience, having fully demonstrated the fact. It has become, therefore, a question of grave consideration, which has occupied the attention of the committee, and of the executive of other societies, whether by a closer identifica- [identified- identification] tion [ion] of interest, and the advantage of periodical personal intercourse of the officers of trade protection societies, the operations of the entire body may not be made incrzasingly [increasing] beneficial to the trading community of this kingdom. Acting upon this conviction, a congress of secretaries was held in Birmingham, in March last, when several mea- [me- measures] sures [cures] were considered, which in the opinion of the meeting ought to receive legislative attention, and arrangements were made for that p se. Circumstances, however, prevented an immediate application to parliament, but it is intended at an early opportunity to bring the subjects under its notice; and confident hopes are entertained that by the combined efforts of the various societies, and the well known high commercial character, and vast experience of great numbers of their members, parliament will be induced to look favourably upon the intended measures. Indeed, it is felt by all that the time has now arrived when legislative acts, affecting the interests of trade and com- [commerce] merce, [mere] ought either to originate with the persons whose ractice [practice] and experience in such matters so eminently qua- [quay] y them for the duty; or, at all events, that the trading world should indorse [endorse] by their favourable notice and sup- [support] port such plans as in their judgment are best calculated to secure the general prosperity. The proposed annual meet- [meeting] ing of the trade protection societies, by their officers and representatives, appears, in the estimation of your com- [committee] mittee, [matter] to be eminently calculated to promote this object, as well as to effect mutually advantageous arrangements regarding their general intercourse with each other. The committee, in conclusion, beg respectfully to remind the members that their individual interests, as well as those of the society at large, are closely identified with the en- [enlargement] largement [argument] and extension of the means of obtaining informa- [inform- information] tion [ion that this also is dependent upon their regularly communicating to the secretary all the intelligence they may obtain which ought to be made kuown [known] to the society, and also upon their availing themselves of every fitting op- [opportunity] portunity [port unity] of augmenting the number of its members, by recommending the institution to the notice and support of their friends believing, as the committee most sincerely do, that there is scarcely any person carrying on business, of any description whatever, in the ordinary mode of transact- [transacting] ing it in this country, who may not be more or less bene- [been- benefit] fitted by connection with this association. A steady in- [increase] crease of several hundred additional members per annum for some years to come-to which the committee with con- [confidence] fidence [confidence] look forwards-will place the association in an in- [increasingly] creasingly [increasingly] powerful position, to protect its members from every species of deception and fraud, both by opening up augmented sources of commercial intelligence, and by its moral position and influence in the country. It may be added, that the subscription for securing the ordinary advantages of the society, including the monthly circular, information as to the standing of parties, and being entitled to the collection of debs at a moderate com- [commission] mission, &c., is ten shillings per annum. The monthly list of warrants of attorney and judges' orders, 1 1s. per annum additional. The report was adopted, and ordered to be circulated among the members. Several alterations were then made in the rules, the officers for the ensuing year were appointed, and other business transacted, for which we refer to the advertisement. The proceedings terminated with a vote of thanks to the Chairman. It will be seen that the members intend dining together next month, and we may state that the dinner is by no means intended to be confined to the members residing in Leeds, but that it is hoped members from all parts of the West Riding will be present. The parliamentary representatives for the riding, and for the various boroughs, are to be invited. 5 The ARMy.-We [Army.-We] understand that Sir Charles Napier recommended that the vacancy occasioned by the death of Lieutenant-Colonel King, late of the 14th Dra- [Dr- Dragoons] goons, shall be filled up by the promotion of the senior officer of the regiment.

For the number of Scores it would be difficult to find its equal, and yet the bowling was not of an inferior class. On the present cecasion [occasion] Mr Morse, more familiarly known by his Zi i name of Esrom, ESR, obtained the unusually large score of 145 runs in his first hands-comprising one eight, two sixes, with fives, fours, threes, and twos ionumersila, [universal] This gen- [gentleman] tleman [gentleman] was at the wicket from a little after one o'clock until half-past six, and he had made upwards of a hundred runs before he gave anything approaching to a chance. He then gave two, but they were not taken, and so he con- [continued] tinued [continued] his innings until he had advanced his score to 145, at which point he was put out by Mr. King. The Hon. R. Grimston, one of the steadiest bats of the day, was bowled on both occasions by a young gentiomss [gendarmes] of the name of Macaulay fora score of eight and five.
