'This gas question was part and parcel of the street question-a question whieh [which] involved many considerations of t# dichest [chest] possible importance. For any private compdgy-to [company-to] haté [hat] thedfce [thence] Wet the streets of a town without paying avy [navy] compensation was, in tis [is] vpinion, [opinion] wrong. The Gas Company hail enjoyed their present mon- opoly [apply] for thirty years without paying anything in the shape even of an acknowledgment-they had torn up the streets when and where they pleased, 'and in return had extracted from the ratepayets' [ratepayers] pockets every shilling that they could, and put the profits into the pockets of private individuals. He found no fault with the Gas Gonipany [Company] for deing [being] this. They entered into what was in-the outset a specukition, [speculation] in the hope of getting a good rétum. [return] At first the specula-, [special] tion [ion] was not remunerative, but for setcral [scrawl] years past the; récura [require] had been more than adequate. The profits had ulti- [ult] mately [lately] become so great that they dare not let the public know what they were but it was quite evident that those returns, whatever they were, had been enormous, and the resalt.was [result.was] they had adopted the politic coutse [course] of giving bonuses, but he did not find fault with the Ges [Ge] Company. for doing that-nay, had he been a shareholder he' it,- hear, hear;)-but these. it became a question whether' p 1 the management supply of, gas into 'thcir-owa [their-oa] bands, and make it, as he believed it, conld [cold] be made, a source of profit to the town.

[Huddersfield] The er then read-a the discussion, he hoped all parties would note from Sunderland, (which will found embodied in our editorial -article on the gas question), to contradict the assertion-that pas was.cheaper in Huddersfield than ini [in] any other town in the kingdom. This was, he observed, another instance beyond the one adduced in the Hudders- [Udders] Jed Ckronétle [Coronet] tending te the same effect. He disclaimed and repudiated the charge that had been put forth to the' effect that himself and those who acted with him in this matter either'intend to demolish or confiscate the property of others. (Hear, hear.) He maintained that it was a legitimate matter for that board to consider whether it would be desirable for them 'to erect gas-works of their own or purchase thase [these] already existing, and no charge which aright be made -of advoeating [Advertising] Louis DBlancdsm [Blankets] should deter him, and he hoped -it would not deter that Board from fully enguiring [enquiring] into the subject Were they not, as Gommissioners [Commissioners] representing the public, com to take this matter into their consideration He thought it vital question, and one of the greatest passible moment.

Could, then, the Commissioners now sit still without taking this-matter into their serious consideration Was a subject of such im- [in- importance] portance,-so importance,-so portance,-so] vital in every respect,-to be shirked by a motion for its reconsideration that day six months Was that becoming the dignity of a public body which aspired to represent the interests of Was it right that .party feeling should interfere to,prevent the discussion of such vital board Glad, indeed, was he to see their respected chairman occupying the chair, who, he felt certain would net all events.put any motion to the meeting, whetherrightorwrong.

Hav- [Have] ing introduced the subject, and having intimated that whether in or out of the Commission, he would agitate this. movement until its fulfilment Mr. Moore concluded by moving the following resolution 'Fhat [That] a special committee be appointed to institute the necessary inquiries as to the power of the Commissioners respecting gas-works, and as to the expediency of providing gas-works themselves, er of purchasing those already in' existence such committee to report-thereon to the general beard after a fair and full consideration and enquiry. The reception of the memorial having been moved and -seconded by Commissioners Crosland and Eastwood, and carried unanimously, The meeting was next addressed by Commissioner Cros- [Cross- Crosland] land, in support of the resolution, and Commissioners T- Firth, Swallow, Armitage, Riley, Sutcliffe, and Eastwood, against, and declining to appointa [appoint] committee of enquiry was ultimately carried by-a majority of 9 to 4, It was resolved that-the finance committee be requested to investigate and apportion the duties .and salaries ot all the officers of the commission, and report thereon at an early day. The Board adjourned at half-past 10 p.m. . Owing to the late hour at which the proceedings con- [concluded] cluded, [eluded] we shall give the discussion extenso [extension] in our next number, in order that beth sides of this important ques- [question] tion'may, [ion'may, 'may] through our columns, receive ample justice. -ASSAULT ON A Quack Doctor.-John Hardcastle, was brought up in custody of Superintendent Thomas, before Joseph Starkey, and George Armitage, Esqs., [Esq] on Saturday last, charged with assaulting Mr. KE. E. Bellamy, of Old street, in this town, at Elland on the Thursday evening previous, and putting him in bodily fear on the day follow- [following] ing. Mr. J. I. Freeman attended on behalf of Bellamy.. From Bellamy's.stetement [Bellamy's.statement] it appeared that on the evening in question, he along with an assistant, was at Elland, when the prisoner and six other men came out of the public-' house, and Hardcastle came up to Bellamy, struck, kicked, ; and threatened to kill him. He was rescued by the people who keep the inn, and taken into the house, where 'he re- [remained] mained [maiden] more than an hour, the men all the time watching for him, and declaring they would do for him when they caught him. The next day (Friday,) on going out of his own house, in Old-street, in this town, 'he saw the prisoner standing near the Hope and Anchor Inn, King-street, and another of the men who coffftnitttd [contented] the assault upon him at Elland, sat upon the wall near the National School, Seed- [Seed hill] hill. On perceiving Bellamy Hardcastle put up his hand to the other man, and they followed him up King-street, and along as far as Spout-fields. From the evidence of Mrs. Sykes, landlady of a beerhouse [beer house] in Old-street, it appeared Hard came into her house several times early in the morning, and while there, told her that he was watching 'for Bellamy, a d--d scamp, and he would give it him if he turned out that day. He had with him at the time a; besom stock. Mr. Brierley of the Dog and Gun, and Mr. Baldwin, butcher, spoke to Hardcastle and the other man following Bellamy into Spout-fields, and believed that their intent was to give him thrashing. The statement of Hardcastle was that he was at Elland, at the public-house in question, and that the men efore before] spoken to, caught Mr. Bellamy and his man hlacking [hacking] over the placards of a rival practitioner, and that they gave hima [him] but that he did not teuek [Turk] co t at As to dodging Bellamy on the Friday, he denied it altogether, j Te tall the what he was doing in the town. 4 The Beneh [Been] bound him over to keep the for twelve months, himself in 10, and two sureties of 5 each, or be ; committed to Wakefield for one month.-In a short time after the case had been heard, Mr. Clay appeared before the Bench, and requested their worships to re-hear the ; case, as the prisoner had not had an eppertuntty [opportunity] of com- [communicating] municating [communicating] with his friends after beimg [being] imto [into] custody. 4 The Bench, nowernt, [went] ee a fair hearing, an Vy given ance [once] with the evidence adduced. surety for the prisoner--Thomas was seen upon wall at Seed-hill, was afterwards placed in the dock, having beea [been] a shert [short] time taken into custody by intendent [intended] Thomas, and Mr. Bellamy p plied to the to have him bound over, to keep peace. Mr. Clay, rose and protested against Superinten- [Superintend- Superintendent] dent Thomas taking either this imah [mah] or Hardcastle into custody without a precept from the Bench, unless the man had broken the which he eontended [intended] that this man had no more 'dona than their worships themselves. He also stated to the Bench that summons was then out i y to appear before the Halifax , (inst Tuesda [Tuesday] of this. r wid [id] stand over until Saturday ( his day), to give the man time to get up evidence.

[circumstances] It appears that Walker was.-in the employ of Mr. Whitley, co lery [ley] owner, of Steele Com- [Common] mon, near this towh. [town] 'at the back of whoa premises Walker also reside. On Wednesday evening he remarked to two of Mr. Whitley's sons that some coal eorves, [eves] which had becn [been] ttposed [deposed] to the sun, showed signs of falling to, pieces, and it was ultimately agreed that Walker and Mr. Whit- [Whitley] ley's two sons, should fetch some water from a well, whieh [which] is only occasionally used, and thus fill them. The bucket was accordingly lowered several times for water, but in con- [consequence] Sequence of it tltimately [ultimately] becoming as not to'sink the bucket, a conseltation [consultation] was held #s sto [to] who should go down into tht [the] well for that purpose. Lt was ultimately agreed that Walker should go duwa [due] astride the bar. When he had some distance inte [inter] the well Walker cried out pull up, there isdamp. [is damp.

With the assist- [assistance] ance [once] of his brother, however, the buckét [bucket] and deceased were raised to yartl [partly] ond [and] a-half of the month of the we'll, deceased in an 'inclined position, when he sud- [sid- suddenly] denly [Denby] dropped from hisseat, [hissed] anti -was precipitated to the bottom of the well again. This occurred at eight in the evening, and though measures were immediately taken to get the deceased out from his perilous position, the foul air was so strong that a lamp, with which of Mr. Whit- [Whitley] ley's offered cou [Co] usly [sly] to descend into the well, was quickly put little below the surface, and it was ulti- [ult- ultimately] mately [lately] found necessary to reduce the foul air by forcing a quantity of pure air into the wéll. [well] By this means the par ties were enabled to enter the well by one at'midnight, when tleceaseil [ceaseless] was found doubled up in the bottom of the well, and life quite extinct.-An 'inquest was held on the body by Geo. Dyson, Esq., at the Star Ion, Bridge-end, Almondbury, on Thursday evening, when the jury rettrned [returned] a verdict of accidentally killed, andl [and] at the same'time x- pressing a hope that Mr. Whitley would render some as- [assistance] sistance'to [distance'to 'to] the witiew, [white] whose main source of 'support had beer most'untimely carried oft, in the perfurmance [performance] -of his duty to'his employer. As an earnest of their sincerity Mr. Thomas Brook, the foreman, handed over a sum-of 2 'to to the widow of deceased, which was subscribed by the jury in the inquest room. FIREWORKS IN THE Criéker-Grounp.-Our [Cricketer-Ground.-Our] readers will perceive, from an advertisement in another célumn, [column] that a superb display-of fireworks will take place in the Cricket Ground, on Mondey [Money] and Tuesday evenings next, undcr'the [under'the] superintendence of that well-known pyrotechnic artist, Mr. G.-F.-Bywater, of Sheffield. The rate of admis- [Adams- admission] sion is exceedingly moderate, and should the prove favourable we doubt not that there will-be a full at- [attendance] tendance [attendance] each evening. GaMBLING [Gambling] -aT SouTH [South] CrosLAND.-At [Crosland.-At] the Guildhall, on Tuesday, -two young-men named Hdirard [Hired] .Hartley, and John Sykes, were with having 'been playing at a game of chance on the public road, eontrary [contrary] to law. The offence being admitted, the defendants were-dismissed on paying the expenses. TEMPERANCE M&ETINGS [M&TINGS] AT PaDDOcK.-Two [Paddock.-Two] large and interesting Temperance meetings were held at Paddock, on Wednesday and Thursday eveningslast; [evenings last] which wereaddressed [we readdressed] at some length by Mr. J. C. Booth, Temperance Missionary. The subject for discussion on Wednesday evening was Is Teetotalism essential'to the moral-elevation of the people ' Mr. Booth, after answering many-cbjections [many-objections] with which the affirmative of-the above might be met, showed the import- [importance] ance [once] of total abstinence to suecess [success] of our moral institu- [institute- institutions] tions, [tins] and the working out ef the great reformatory move- [movements] ments [rents] of our times. Thursday evening's subject was, Teetotalism tried bythe [Blythe] great principles and precepts of the scriptures. Mr. Booth addressed a crowded and at- [attentive] tentive [attentive] audience at great length, in which he asserted that total abstinence 'was not only in harmony with, but a practical carrying out df the leading principles of the bible. At the close of the Lecture, several signatures were obtained to the pledge. TakING [Taking] SAND FROM THE HIGHWAY AT QUARMBY.- n Tuesday last, before the sitting magistrates, at the Guild- [Guildhall] eall,-Yamres [all,-Mares ,-Yamres] and 'homas [Thomas] Hanson, of Longwood, were ebarged [embarked] by the Surveyors with having taken sand off the read -xt Quarmby,.on the 18th of May. A witness called by the Survoyors [Surveyors] stated that the defendants had filled three carts from the 'highway at a place called Top o'Heights, in by, which formed part of the common highway. The defentams, [defendants] on the contrary, denied that the sand they took was part of the property of the Surveyors, 28 1 ws on the 'road, and was what they designated part ef the town's lot, belonging to Longwood, but as it appeared that the same party rented the sand from the Serveyors-of'Longwood [Surveyors-of'Longwood] 4 appeared pretty evident that the defendants were in the day in question helping themselves,,from.the sand on the Quarmby highways. The case wasismissed [dismissed] on the de- [defendants] fendants [defendant] paying the expenses, and promising not to offend CAUTION TO INNKEEPERS.-At the Guildhall, on Tues- [Tuesday] day last, Mr. Richard Abbs, who keeps a public-house on the Leeds Road, was summoned by night-constable Brook under the following circumstances. It appeared that on oing [doing] his round on the previous Saturday evening, along Guenatrest, [entrust] and over the bridge, 'the officer heard the moan of some one coming from the water-side. He made inquiries, and found 'a drunk; and actually in the water. Brook got the feliow [fellow] out, and finding that he was starved, took him at'twelve at night to the King's Arms, kept by the defendant, when the landlord refused to admit either the officer er his mate, though he new that the former was a constable, 'remarking at the same time, that he would not havethe [have the] man there, at the same time adding- [adding what] what isthe [other] ptilice-office [police-office] for '-Brook then removed theman [than] to the county lock-up, and Mr. Heaton deposed that when - the man errived [arrived] there he was in a very bad state, and, to' all appearance, seemed as if he had been nearly drowned.- [drowned] Mr. Armitage said that any publican who acted in such a- marner [manner] was a very unfit man to have a license, But inas-' [ins] much'as the defendant expressed his regret fer the course he thad [had] pursued in ignorance of the law of the case, the Bench dismissed the case on Mr. Abbs paying the expenses, ' with an intimation from the Bench that a second offence of the same character would result in being refused. BEGGING INTHE [ANOTHER] PUBLIC STREETS ON THE SABBATH.-This reprehensible practice has latterly been.on the increase in Huddersfield and the adjacent neighbourhood it being the practice of a class of impartunate [important] fellows to visit private re- [residences] ; sidences [residence] while the principals ate attending morning service, and, in case alms are refused them, they droquently [frequently] become very abusive. One of this class of vagrants named Thomas Firby, was brought before the sitting magistrates, on Tues- [Tuesday] day, by Mr. sone [one] vith [with] soliciting alms in Manchester-street, h tite .pre- [previous] vious [pious] Sunday morning, little before noon.

His worship then tested his man by another perce, [peace] and intimated that unless his queries were answered, he would tend the deaf- [Dean] 'un to Wakefield fora month. 'This had the desired effect, when the prisoner said he had come from Hverton [Horton] Work- [Workhouse] house, near Liverpool, and was making teur [true] through the country that be had begged his way #vitheut [without] interruption t Wakefield, and thought there was Ho. jams working kis [is] way by a similar és through Huddersfield.

[sore] These - were readily agreed to by the who was wed to take his departure from ceurt [court] en this latter condition. THE Recent Tarp TO Lonpon.-From [London.-From] a highly respec- [respect- respectable] table passenger by the cheap train to London which left 1 Nermanton [Permanent] and neizabouring [neighbouring] stations on Tuesday the the 27th May last, we are glad to hear that the numerous 4 pleasure ers [es] were saiely [safely] transported to the metropolitan ; terminus, after a neost [stone] delightful journey through the lux- [luxuriant] uriant [Orient] seenery [scenery] of the sumny [sunny] south. The day was unusually fine. Mr. Calverley, of Wakefield, (one of the enterprisiag [enterprise] contractors for the trip,) accompanied the train; and 'on i ized [ied] by scvoral [several] of passengers at Euston- [Insecure] square station, was most flatteringly complimented by them on the admirable com p'eteness [p'Tennessee] of all the arra [area] This is indeed an age of p' i for its many facilities; and among these none should be more welcomed than those of railways, .wkioh [ko] not only romote [promote] so effectually the proximity of the shores of Bomnwall [Cornwall] to the hills of Northumberland, bet also to #Scure [Cure] to the poor that which has too long. been the exclusive privi [privy] of the rich,-a long, .chéap; [cheap] ané [an] health replacing -an age.vemarkable.
