SoxpaY [Sixty] EVENING LECTURES.-The first, of a series of sunday [Sunday] ev lectures, by the Rev. R. Storey, Grove- [Grove sane] sane 1, ton, was en last Sunday evening, in a Philosophical Hall, the subject being The Last Days. The attendance on the occasion was very numerous and the of the lecturer seemed to give general satisfaction. NITED [UNITED] VILLAGE InstITUTION.-The [Institution.-The] fourta [fourth] oo ual [al] festival of this institution was celebrated by a tea- [ten] on Thursday evening last, in the Methodist New pee scien [science] Sehool-room, [School-room] After ton, a selection vocal and 10 ental [mental] music was very itabl [Italy] r- ae ed by Misses Crosland, Brook, and Brierley, ood [od] Messrs.

Owing to the weather being on unfavourable the company was not so large as on pre- [previous] yjous [yous] occasions, but the proceedings were heartily enjoyed by those present. EscaPE [Escape] AND DeaTH [Death] of a Lunatic.-On Sunday week, about midday, Godfrey Ellis, an inmate of the West Riding e his escape, having been allowed to walk, as in the yard. He took his course over hedge and ditch, down tow Stanley Ferry, and although hot ly ursued [used] by the keeper, he succeeded in reaching the reser- [refer- reservoir] Pir [Sir] of the Waterworks Company, where he was observed deliberately to take off his shoes and plunge in; and before assistance could be procured life was extinct, notwithstand- [not withstand- notwithstanding] ing he was not in the water more than a few minutes. The usual means Were resorted to in order to restore animation, put without effect. The unfortunate deceased was a native of Marsh, near Huddersfield, a married man, 57 years of THEstae.- [These.- These] The Riding School, during the past week, 1 open or dramatic per- [perhaps] has, ances, [aces] under the lessee-ship of Mr. S. Wild. The oy terior [terror] has been appropriately decorated, and the scenery is well got up. y popular melo-dramas [mel-dramas] and plays have been placed upon the e since the theatre was opened, in a manner which has elicited the warm plaudits of tho auditory, and we have no doubt, should Mr. Wild con- [conduct] duct the arrangements of this place of amusement so as to render good sterling plays in a respectable manner, he will meet with a fair share of public tronage. [patronage] We beg to draw attention to the approaching division of the profits of the Standard Life Assurance Company, for the five years about to be closed. This company, we per- [perceive] ceive, [receive] has had additions to its numbers within six years of 3,800 persons and, although only established in 1825 its income is 165,000 per annum. It is one of the oldest and apparently most prosperous of the Scotch offices. THE RaMSDEN [Ramsden] Rent DINNER.-The first rent dinner of the Trustees of Sir J. W. n ever held at the Plough Inn, Westgate, took place on Thursday last, under the presi- [press- presidency] dency [Denby] of John Marshall, Esq., who was supported by George Starkey, Esq., Mr. Day, of Moldgreen Mr. Hili, [Hill] of Clare-hill Mr. Charles Smith, of Mold-green; Mr. Ibbet- [Abet- Ibbetson] son, and several other gentlemen. We are informed that the dinner was served up in excellent style, and reflected the greatest credit on the worthy hostess, Mrs. Crampton. The usual loyal and complimentary toasts were given, and responded to, and several colts having been duly footed, as is the custom, the company enjoyed themselves until a 'seasonable hour, and then dispe [disperse] well pleased with the proceedings of the day. THE ANNUAL Rest Day OF THE RamspEw [Ramsey] EstatTr,- [Estate,- Estate] The annual rent roll tor this extensive estate was held on Wednesday and Thursday last, at the George Hotel, on which occasions sumptuous dinneys, [dinners] replete with every delicacy of the season, were served the ests, [sets] under the management of Mr. and Mrs. Wigney. [Wine] Hathorne, [Hawthorn] Esq., the resident agent, presided, and at the Thursday's dinner, at which covers were laid for 23, we observed, amongst other gentlemen present, CommissionersT. [Commissioners] P. Cros- [Cross- Crosland] land, E. Eastwood, W. P, England, and Messrs. Thomas Kilner, Joseph Shaw, Joseph Scholefield, Luke Swallow, George Lancashire, T. S. Bradley, J. 8. Polson, [Poison] and Joseph Turner. The vice-chair was filled by Mr. Tho- [Thomas] mas Brook. The usual loyal toasts, The health of the young baronet, Lady Ramsden, The Trustees, The town and trade of Huddersfield, were given and drunk with honours. We are informed that some slight dissatisfaction was expressed by the company during the evening at the absence of the steward, George Loch, Esq., as indicating an inattention to the important and extensive body of tenantry in this neighbourhood. With this slight drawback, the evening was productive of the best feeling, and the company retired abaut [about] ten o'clock. THE TRICKS OF CoFFEE [Coffee] Roasters.-The following receipt was given to a respectable tea dealer in this town aday [day] or twoago, [two ago] by aman [man] who was going from town to town with a view to enlighten the coffee roasters in the country with the process of roasting on an improved prin- [pain- principle] ciple. [Copley] The public have been cautioned about chicory, and to buy their coffee whole but what will they do now Buy their coffee unroasted. The ingredients for making coffee, on the improved French system, is as follows -12Ibs. -12lbs] of oak bark (ground), 8lbs. [lbs] of velonica, [Veronica] 2lbs. [lbs] Juniper ber- [be- berries] nies, [ties] 1lb. [lb] Terra Japonica, [Panic] tied in a bag, boiled in eight gal- [gallons] lons [ons] of water, from one to two hours, steeped forty-eight hours, and strained before roasting, or to be used from a watering in the usual way o1 cofiee [coffee] roasting. Foot Rack on THE LEEDs [Leeds] Roap.-A [Soap.-A] little sporting affair came off on Tuesday evening last, in the shape of a foot race, on the Leeds and Huddersfield turnpike-road, between Mr. Gilbert Fox, a plasterer, and Peter Senior, a miller. The start took place opposite the Leeds Arms, and the men ran to the Peacock en, and back again, when Senior came in a gallant winner. 'The affair caused a great deal of merriment, in consequence of Fox being a great advocate of teetotalism. A HUDDERSFIELD GENTLEMAN'S PURCHASE OF THE 4 EarTH [Earth] FoR [For] 5s.-The following memorandum of a gentle- [gentleman] man, whom we should presume, from the terms of his note, has made a capital bargain, fell accidentally into our hands the other day whilst we were musing on the frailties to which all flesh is heir, and wishing that we had the cap of Fortunatus, [Fortunate] so that we might make the world better than we found it. The startling fact which it announced threw us a little off our guard, and excited somewhat of our wonder as to whether, in the plenitude of this gentleman's power, he would rule us note-book gentlemen with a rod of iron, or allow us to proceed in our accustomed duties unmolested. Our wonder, of course, remains ungra- [Angora- ungratified] tified, [testified] as we have not yet dared to approach this mighty monarch of all I survey, with sufficient deference and humility. We will not claim advertisement duty for usher- [ushering] ing into this world of trouble our hero's first bantling, [Banting] but leave it to be nursed by his grateful public. Hear, ye men of Huddersfield This is to certify that I bought the urth earth] this morning of Mr. and paid 5s. for it Nov. 5, 1850. [W] EconomicaL [Economical] CHIMNEY-SWEEP.- [SWEEP] Some people are ac- [acknowledged] knowledged [knowledge] to be actuated by peculiar notions of economy, which take, especially in domestic matters, a turn that smacks admirably of the ludicrous. We are told a story of a good housewife, which dates within the recollection of the youngest stripling living within the village of Milns- [Milnsbridge] bridge, who, in the plenitude of her economic arrange- [arrangements] ments-a [rents-a] subject which her mind brooded on at all hours- [hours rose] rose from her slumbers, and wrapping herself in a coarse blanket or packsheet, [pack sheet] determined to save a penny by ascending her own chimney in the capacity of sweep. At first the showers of soot that fell upon her de- [devoted] voted head were productive only of pleasure rising higher, however, the difficulties increased, and our feminine chimney-sweep began to loose her courage- [courage still] still another effort-when alas a false step, and she slip- [slipped] ped [pd] into the oven draft. In this dilemma she broke the silence of the night with a terrific shriek-her gudeman [demanding] started up in terror from his bed-his hair stood on end, as the echoing sounds rose and fell, and died away in distant murmurings. Again the sound broke upon his ear, and that he slept alone, he rushed in distracted trepi- [trip- trepidation] dation [nation] up stairs, whence the sound appeared to come-but was still and returnitip-whdt [returned-what] was that -again the shriek in more smothered tones was heard, and he rushed down stairs. Still the mystery was unsolved. Up stairs- [stairs with] with no bettef [better] result. And now the sound grew fainter- [fainter down] down stairs again; when, lo prostrate, in sable beauty on the bed-room floor, lay the gudeman's [demanding's] wife. His anxious enquiries were speedily satisfied, and the penny Wise and pound foolish housewife committed herself to the wash tub, and scrubbed and rubbed till morning before she appeared in anything approaching to her former emale [female] loveliness. oman-like, she told her secret, in strictest confidence, to a female friend, who, of course, retailed it to another friend, until it became the common topic of every fireside, and the jest of every ale bench. A Tate or Love THAT ENDED IN DisaPPOINTMENT.- [Disappointment.- Disappointment] The incidents of every day life are ever and anon remind- [reminding] ing us that the course of true love, however smoothly for atime [time] it may be borne onward in untroubled currents, Will, in the long run, be whirled in eddies, and tumble madly and in distraction, over rocks and precipices, as though it were destined that in all things there shall come trouble, mixed in the cup of happiness. All our readers no doubt have loved-and if they are not yet inglorious or domineering Caudles-they [Candles-they] are, like the heroes of our story, contemplating the time when they will either be the utterers [uttered] or objects of Curtain Lectures. We are not in- [instructed] structed [instructed] how long Mr. John Davison, a humble member of the fraternity of hostlers, spoke in soft kind words to the fair object of his heart's affections-and it Matters not, for that they loved the blind god published in a manner which placed all doubt beyond question. There were hours, however, whet 3 ohn [on] worshipped ore than his mistress, and at those times he - fact, became a lost black sheep. John had a large heart me that could breathe unmistakable things to every Pretty face that crossed his path, and thus may beaccounted [be accounted] for the anomaly, that whilst he lived in bliss within the rough, he could spare a portion of his affections for another country wench, who bloomed like a summer's rose dimpled smiles and buxom beauty. Time rolled on, and the tide of events would wait for no man-and John Was moved to haste. Reluctantly he consented and whilst 2 fair landlady negociated [negotiated] ceremonies at our parish church, John himself arranged for a similar event at Kirkheaton, Where ary [art] one was challenged to shew just cause or im- [in- impediments] Pediment. At last the morning of suspense and anxiety was ushered in,-the festive board was spread,- [spread] the weddi [Wed] guests were met,-and as every minute trod on the heels of its fellow, doubting eyes were cast askance at old Father Time as he moved around his unending Circle ;-and as the momentous hour came and went, with- [without] Cut a spouse. hearts beat and throbbed. Another hour in ew and the hungry guests set down in silence, whilst Tustier [Duster] friends were sent in search directed by a knowing they soon tracked the unhappy groom, who was Honing in oblivion the dawning of matrimonial realities. suas [sus] goaded into consciousness, and promising to a render himself before noon, craved permission for absence, during which to attire himself all in to best.

The subject r some weeks has been a common topic of public conversation and comment, and the examination in conse- [cone- consequence] quence [Queen] created considerable interest. The court was crowded, and we observed present many of the leading merchants and warehousemen conn with the town. The information stated that on the 14th of October, John g m, merchant, did threaten to kick and beat the said complainant, and to do him some grievons [grievous] bodily rm and the complainant was therefore afraid that the said John Mallinson would do him some grievous bodily injury, and prayed that the said John Mallinson might, therefore, be required to find sufficient sureties to keep the peace, and be of good behaviour towards the said com- [competent] It appeared in the course of the evidence that . Gray claims to be a partner with Mr. Mallinson, and therefore, considered himself justified in entering the ware- [warehouse] use whenever he chose, and conducting his business in that capacity. This assumption was deemed by Mr. Mal- [Al- Mallinson] linson [London] as a piece ot most impertinent presumption, and as such, steps were taken to bring the matter to a crisis. Accordingly, when Mr. Gray entered the premises on the 14th, [the] he was interrogated by Mr. Mallinson as to what he wanted, and replied, Minding my business. He was then ordered to leave, and declining at once to do so, Mr. Mal- [Al- Mallinson] linson [London] took him by the collar, and, twirling him round, after a slight resistance, propelled the unfortunate gentleman down the stairs with a egree [degree] of velocity which was much more successful than agreeable. We need not repeat the conversation which ensued during these p ings, as it would be found neither edifying nor instructive; but the insult was of so vated [dated] and galling a character as to induce Mr. Gray to lay the circumstances before the magis- [magic- magistrates] trates, [rates] and claim their protection.-On behalf of the defendant iĆ© was denied that there was any partnership existing betwean [between] the parties, and that no greater amount of violence had exercised in the expulsion of Mr. Gray than the circumstances justified. Mr. Jacomb submitted that as the had sworn that his life was in danger the bench had no alternative but to bind Mr. anon over to keep the peace.-Mr. Clay objected that such a course, in the absence of evidence, was quite pre- [preposterous] posterous [Posters] aud [and] the bench ruled that they had always hald [had] in cl of this nature that at least the charge of assault and threatening should be substantiated before they could consent to bind the defendant over to keep the peace. In this case it was evident that the quarrel had arisen out of a dispute as to whether the compisinant [complainant] was a partner or not, -and as that question was not within their jurisdiction, and as there was not sufficient proof of Mr. Gray's life being in danger, the case must be discharged. Brutal CHARGE oF RaPE.-On [Pare.-On] Tuesday last, at the Guildhall, the sitting magistrates were occupied during their proceedings in the investigation of a most disgustin [disgusting] charge of rape, committed on a young girl named Elizabeth Weavill, (only about eleven years of age,) by her master Collin Wilson. Mr. J. I. Freeman cuted [cured] Hellawell defended. The Bibs sancti [sanction] aded [added] particulars of the case are wholly unfit for publication. The prisoner resides in Granby- [Considered] street, Manchester-road, and follows the trade of a tinker. For some few weeks the little girl has been in his service as house servant and nurse, and was accustomed to sleep in one of the lower rooms with the children. On Sunday Tast [East] Wilson's wife went to Halifax to see some of her friends, and took one or two of the children with her. During the night the prisoner ordered the girl to go to bed, and some short time afterwards he went to her, and committed the crime with which he was charged. The little girl, as soon as she oe ae out of co told one of the neigh- [neighbours] bours [ours] what taken place, when information was given to the police, and the prisoner taken into custody by Police- [Policeman] man Samuel Beever the same night. The case was adju- [ad- adjudicated] dicated [dictated] upon as a misdemeanour, and the prisoner commit- [committed] ted to Wakefield to take his trial at the sessions for the offence. Bail was very properly refused. The evidence produced an intense feeling of disgust, at such beastly bru- [bre- brutality] tality, [vitality] in the minds of all present. A RatHer [Rather] Novet [Novel] or KEEpine [Keeping] Accounts.-In the case of Bazilia [Basil] Harling v. Henry Siswick, both of Longwood, heard at the County Court, on Thursday, we were not a little amused by the nature of the accounts and brief handed in by the plaintiff, who is deaf and dumb. After being sworn, Mr. Harling took off his hat, and drew forth from its interior a piece of coarse blue paper, such as is generally used for wrapping up sugar, marked with a mysterious row of cyphers-three [cypher-three] wide and six deep- [deep] in the following order [order] o832383 [o] We in vain puzzled our brain to decypher [cypher] this column of cyphers, [cypher] and finding our efforts perfectly futile, we solicited the aid of a legal friend, who instructed us that each cypher represented Is., the larger one indicating 2s. 6d., so that in the whole, they stood for the sum of 1 Os. 6d. The brief proved equally beyond our comprehension, and had it not been so lengthy, we should have readily trans- [transferred] ferred [erred] it to our colums, [columns] as an undoubted curiosity. After poring over this strangely worded document two or three times, we discovered that the planitift [plaintiff] resided at, Longwood, and followed the occupation of a shoemaker; and that the defendant had at different times, during the years 1844 and 1845, imposed upon the benevolence of our dumb plaintiff, by borrowing from him the above sum in amounts of 3s. at a time, and on one occasion had not been satisfied with borrowing, but had taken French leave with 1s., hid in a cream jug. The statement was most singularly worded, and was not less peculiar in its orthography. The defendant did not appear, so that a verdict was given to the plaintiff for the full amount. Is a Man RESPONSIBLE FOR DEBTS INCURRED BY HIS Kept MISTRESS WHILST LIVING WITH Him -WATERHOUSE v. CocksHAW.-The [Cocks.-The] plaintiff and defendant in this case reside at Lindley, and are both in a similar position as re- [regards] gards [Guards] their better halves, each having an unmarried com- [companion] panion. [anion] It was sought, in the County Court, on Thursday, to recover the sum of 6 15s. 64d., for bought by Betty Haigh (Cockshaw's amour) during 1847. The only point of interest in the case was, whether Cockshaw was responsible for Betty Haigh's debts, and on this question his honour decided that where parties were living as man and wife, as in this instance, the man was clearly respon- [reason- responsible] sible as much as though he had been legally her husband. The verdict was therefore given for the plaintiff. Mr. Clay supported and Mr. Hellawell opposed the claim. A PIECE oF DANGEROUS SWEARING.-BROOKE AND ANOTHER v. HANnsON.-This [Hanson.-This] case was heard at the County Court, on Thursday, being supported by Mr. Floyd, and opposed by Mr. Clough. The action was brought to recover the sum of 10 14s. alleged by the defendant to be due on a promissory note, signed by the defendant in 1847, and payable in certain instalments. There was nothing impor- [import- important] tant [tan] in the point at issue-but in the course of cross-exami- [cross-exam- examination] nation the plaintiff swore distinctly and repeatedly that the note was drawn in the June of 1847, at the Wool-pack Inn, in the presence of Hanson, Boothroyd, and himself and had never since been out of his possession. However, on ex- [examining] amining [mining] the stamp, it was found to bear date in January of the present year. Mr. Clough submitted to the Court that such a gross case of perjury ought not to be allowed to go unpunished. His honour, in non suiting the plaintiff, said he did not possess the power of punishing or ordering his prosecution for a perjury, but there could be no doubt his conduct was highly reprehensible. THE CoNSEQUENCES [Consequence] OF ONE OF A FIRM TAKING MATTERS INTO HIS OwN [On] Hanps.-In [Hands.-In] the case of Mallinson v. Taylor and another, the plaintiff sought to recover the sum of 11 11s.10d. [1st.d] Mr. Gough appeared in of the claim, and was opposed by Mr. J. I. Freeman. It appeared that the detondant, [defendant] Taylor, had been in partnership with a per- [person] son named Blakey, as dyers, in Moldgreen, and had in that capacity transacted business with the plaintiff. From some cause or other the affairs went wrong, and without passing through the Bankruptcy Court, Taylor took the manage- [management] ment [men] ot the business into his own hands, and even adver- [aver- advertised] tised [tied] its sale without obtaining the consent of Blakey. The money, however, produced by its sale was still in the hands of the auctioneer. For the defence the amount was not opposed, but it was contended that the claim must be paid out of the money obtained by the sale or out of the assets, ana not direct from the defendant himself, and his honour was requested to order its payment in this manner. His honour, however, ruled that he had no power to proceed in this way, but must order the payment of The parties themselves might make what arrangemen's [arrangement's] they chose, but where a partner took the management of mat- [matters] ters [tees] into his hands, and even sold goods by auction without consulting the other partner, he must suffer the conse- [cone- consequences] quences [sequence] of such pr ings, by risking the payment of claims out of his own pocket. Wuat [What] ConstTITuTEs [Constituted] A RETENTION OF SERVICES By As- [Assignee] SIGNEES [ASSIGNEES] AFTER A BanKRUPTCY [Bankruptcy] -In the case of Hall v. Hayley, it was sought in the County Court, on Thursday, to recover the sum of 1 10s. for three weeks' wages, at the rate of 12s, per week. Mr. Floyd supported the applica- [applicant- application] tion [ion] which was opposed by Mr. Clay. The plaintiff in this case is a poor labouring man, and has for many years been in the service of Mr. Hannah, manufacturer, of this town, and was partly engaged in gardening at Mr. Hannah's resi- [rest- residence] dence, [dene] and at other times at the Clough-house Mill. On the bankruptcy of that gentleman, Mr. Thomas became the trade assignee, and the factory was carried on for the benefit of the creditors, most of the men being re- [retained] tained. [gained] Amongst others Hall had continued to work for two or three weeks after the seizure of the sffects [effects] by the assignees, and had been paid regularly for five or six weeks, when the manager of the premises, Mr. Brierley, gave him an immediate discharge in the middle of the week. It was argued that Hall never been formally engaged, and therefore the proceedings adopted were perfectly justifiable. Evidence was examined as to whether it was the custom at this factory to discharge without a fortnight's notice, and finding that such was a matter of agreement, his honour decided that though he considered the payment of Hall's wages on two or three occasions as clearly quite tanta- [Manta- tantamount] mount to a re-engagement, there did not appear to be any agreement as to notice, and he should therefore only give a verdict for the week on which the plaintiff was dis. charged. ASSAULTING THE PoLicE,-Lawrence [Police,-Lawrence] Ward, an Irish labourer, was charged at the Guildhall, on Tuesday last, with assulting [assaulting] Hollinraik, [Hellenic] one of the night police. It ap- [that] that on Saturday night the i at. between and one o'clock, the attention of the watchman was to an Irish row, in Duke-street and that locality, and on preceeding [preceding] to the spot, he was attacked by the mob, and assaulted, more particularly by the prisoner. He sounded his cane for assistance, and was soon joined by Seargeant [Sergeant] Sedgwick and Wilson, with whose assistance the prisoner was taken into custody. Fined charge of this nature, occurring on the same night, was preferred by policeman Partridge against John Robinson. he policeman had been called to the Shears Inn, Beast- [Beast market] market, to quell a disturbance when the defendant assaulted him, The offence was acknowledged, and Robinson fined 10s. and expenses.-T'wo or three other unimportant cases of a similar character, were brought under the attention of the bench, and punished accordingly. We regret to find that this class of offences appears to be on the increase, but we hope it will oniy [on] iuduce [induce] the police to use greater vigilance and activity, and if they discharge there duty we are sure they will meet with the ready support and co- [cooperation] operation of the inhabitants generally. Caution To LivERY [Liver] Keerens.-On [Greens.-On] last, at the Guildhall, Mr. Wm. Middleton, livery-stable keeper, was charged, by the officers of Inland Revenue, with omitting to enter a certain horse, which had been let out for hire. It that on the 17th- [the- tho] of June last, Mr. Middleton had let outa [out] horse and gig for hire, and neglected to enter it on his books. Mr. Dransfield defended, and acknowledged the offence, but pleaded in mitigation that it had been committed entirely lect. [let] and without ay intention whatever to defraud her Majesty's revenue. 'The charge was not pressed, and the defendant was mulcted in the mitigated penalty of 5 and expenses. An EXTRAORDINARY PARTIALITY FOR THE HovsE [House] oF CoRRECTION.-A [Correction.-A] singular instance of prison infatuation was brought under the attention of the residing istrates, [magistrates] on Saturday last, in the case of a character named Julia Carney, charged with being drunk and disor- [dis- disorderly] derly. [Derby] During the examination it was elicited that she has taken up her residence in the House of Correction for periods varying from seven days to three months on thirty- [theatre] three distinct occasions, and she appeared to receive her thirty-fourth committal with the most perfect nonchelance. [nonchalance] CavuTion [Caution] TO RatLway [Railway] TRAVELLERS.-John France, a bouring [boring] man from Slaithwaite, was charged on Thursday last betore [before] George Armitage, Eaq., [Esq] with going into the London and North-Western Railway Station in a state of intoxication. It appeared that France went into the station of this company on Tuesday night between seven and eight o'clock, and applied to one of the officers named Jessop fora ticket for Slaithwaite. The officer observing the state the applicant was in told him to go away, as he was gure [sure] the clerk would not grant him a ticket, and then proceeded to attend to his other duties. The next time J essop [Jessop] heard any thing of France, he was in the custody of another officer who had found him about forty or fifty yards within the tunnel, going in the direction of Slaithwaite. Trai [Train] had been due for some time from Manchester and Penistone, and had the prisoner remained a short time longer, he was certain to have received fatal injuries. On his examination he said he was quite ignorant of what he had done.-Fined 5s. and expenses. . ALLEGED FELONY AT THE VaGRANT [Vagrant] OFFICE.-An Irish- [Irishman] man, named Patrick Mailey, [Bailey] was placed in the dock, at the Guildhall, on Thursday, ch with ing a woollen counterpane, the property of the Huddersfield board of guardians. The master of the vagrant office stated that the prisoner came to the office on the night on the 6th instant, and, having slept there, left early in the morni [morn] On making up the beds, the counterpane was missing, and. suspicion resting on the prisoner, the master followat [followed] and overtook him in Huddersfield. On searching his page the missing article was found along with the defendant' own goods. Mailey, [Bailey] who said he was making the best of his way to Newcastle, denied having taken the countrpane [countrymen] intentionally, and asserted that it had been putin by accident along with the other clothes. Under these cir- [circumstances] cumstances, [cum stances] he was ordered to leave the town or be committed to Wakefield for a month. ASSAULTING AN APPRENTICE.-A young man, named Henry Walker, appeared at the Guildhall on Tuesday last, as complainant against his master, Mr. Joseph Neylor, [Naylor] blacksmith, Westgate, for having, on Saturday last, thrown a plate of iron at him, whereby his arm had been severely cut. The complainant said that on Saturday morning his master came into the shop, and without any provocation flung at him an iron plate, which hitting him on the arm inflicted a wound two or three inches in h, and then knocked him down. A very different version of the story was given by the defendant, who stated that on going into the workshop on Saturday morning he found an iron late so ill worked as to be valueless, and on enquiry, finding it to have been made by the complainant, We threw it towards him, without any intention of hurting him, at the same time remarking- A fine fellow you are to make a thing like that, when you are within a year of completing your apprenticeship Some unpleasantness arose, during which Walker threatened to knock out his with a pair of tongs, after which Naylor ordered him toleave [to leave] the premises. Fined 15s. (10s. [1st] for the complainant) and expenses. OstTaInInc [Obtaining] Goops [Goods] FOR ANOTHER.-GREGORY v. Tay- [Taylor] Lor.-The [Or.-The .-The] plaintiff in this case is a draper in Huddersfield, and the defendant resides at Meltham. Theamount [The amount] claimed was 9 5s. 1d. for goods bought and delivered. The case was heard at the County Court, on Thursday, and conducted by Mr. John Haigh and opposed by Mr. C. The defendant, Miss Taylor, appeared to have been in the habit of purchasing articles of Mr. Gregory, sometimes re- [representing] presenting the goods obtained as for herself, and at others for Mrs. Taylor, and it was contended that the goods now sued for were obtained for the mother. His Honour de- [decided] cided [sided] that Miss Taylor having evidently made the pur- [our- purchases] chases was the responsible person, and the verdict 'must therefore be for the plaintiff. eo HOLMFIRTH.

Firta [Firth] oF NovEMBER.-We [November.-We] are happy in being able to say that no accident of any notable consequence has taken place during the week. In one instance, sparks had got to some squibs which a boy had sticking out of his trowsers [trousers] pocket, but as soon as they caught fire from the sparks he very dexterously drew them from his packet, and threw them on the ground without receiving any harm A bonfire at Underbank being near a house, several children residing there ran to and fro during the even- [evening] ing with lighted sticks in their hands, which was the cause of a table cloth catching fire. The table waa-very [was-very] much damaged, and several things in the window- [window seat] seat were burnt. In the evening of Tuesday several gentlemen met at the Crown Hotel, and at intervals went to the door, and let off a number of rockets, and several other kinds of fireworks, to the great amusement of some young ladies and other persons who saw them. a eS ee Go Correspondents. ----- A CHESS PLAYER expresses his surprise at the non- [nonexistence] existence of a club in our town, on a similar plan to those in Leeds, Halifax, Wakefield, and other Yorkshire towns. He argues that there are several good players in this town, and, inasmuch as a great congress of chess play ers [es] is to be held in 1851 (when, he presumes, all the clubs in the empire will send up its champion), he asks, Will the chess players of Huddersfield suffer themselves to be unrepresented in that memorable en- [encounter] counter We most heartily commend these suggestions to our chess-playing friends, but we think that if a society of chess players incorporated themselves with the clubs now existing at the Mechanics' Institute or the Philoso- [Philosophy- Philosophical] phical [physical] Hall, the result would bea saving to all parties without impeding the plans of any.

We have heard with indignation and alarm of the audacious endeavour of the Pope of Rome to restore the Papal hierarchy in England. e consider it a treasonable invasion of the supremacy of our beloved Queen; an in- [infringement] fringement [infringement] of the spirit, if not of the letter, of our national constitution, and an unwarrantable ion on the Catholicity and independence of our Reformed Protestant ure [re] We believe that the Romish [Rooms] Apostacy [Apostle] now is, what it has ever been,-treacherous, tyrannical, idolatrous, and subversive of all those liberties which, as Englishmen and Christians, we love and cherish and that its heresies and superstitions are part of those erroneous and strange doc- [doctrines] trines, contrary to God's word, which, by our ordination vows we are solemnly pledged to banish and drive away.

MEETING at LivERPOoL.-On [Liverpool.-On] Tuesday last a very numerously attended meeting of the clergy of Liver- [Liverpool] pool was held in the Savings' Bank, for the purpose of memorialising the Bishop in reference to the late Papal aggressions. A memorial was agreed to unanimously, expressive of indignation at the insult which had been offered to the Protestant Sovereign Church and people of England, by a foreign bishop, (the Pope of Rome,) pretending to the succession of St. Peter, &c., in which capacity he had appointed an intrusive bishop to preside over a part of this kingdom by the style of the Bishop of Liverpool. They further protested against this at- [attempt] tempt at encroachment, and concluded by craving direc- [direct- directions] tions [tins] from the bishop how they may best vindicate the rights of the Protestant church, and the privileges of the British Reformation, which they allege they are sworn to defend. The memorial was signed in the room by about seventy clergymen. THE MaNcHESTER [Manchester] MEETING.-On Tuesday evening the Rev. Canon Stowell addressed a numerous meeting of the Operative Protestant Association, in the Com Exchange, in one of his most exciting and declamatory orations, on the recent assumption of power in this country by the Romish [Rooms] clergy. A memorial to her Majesty was agreed upon, expressive of astonishment and indignation at the insolent attempt of the papacy to convert England into a mere province of the see of Rome, which they considered incompatible with the constitution of Britain, as pregnant with discord and disquietude, and as the forerunner of further and bolder encroachments, unless promptly and boldly withstood. In conclusion, the memorialists [memorials] called on her Majesty so to advise her ministry as to uphold the rights of the National Church. er THE EXHIBITION CaTALOGUE.-At [Catalogue.-At] the meeting of her Majesty's Commissioners on Thursday last, the tenders for printing and preparing the catologues [Catalogues] for the Exhibition were reported, and the tender jointly sent in by Messrs. Spicer, the papermakers, [papermaker] and Messrs. Clowes, the printers, was ordered to be accepted. It is stated that the terms on which Messrs. Clowes and Spicer have secured the printing of the catalogues are, the payment of a premium of 3,000, and a royalty of twopence on each copy sold.

He owed nine years' rent, one farthing of which ke would not pay, neither would he give up the land. All that the receiver wanted was to get the property out of his clutches. Court-How came you to owe so much rent, and what brought you here Insolvent-On account of the heavy rent I was paying. I was paying a heavy rent indeed. Mr Lane (attorney for the receiver)-Why, man, you paid nothing.

Much excitement has been occasioned in Leeds and Bradford by the discovery that several merchants and manufacturers have been robbed of letters addressed to them from Parties i Soho they had business transac- [transact- transactions] tions, [tins] some of the le large remittances of money. It is supposed that the letters have been ob- [obtained] tained [gained] at the Post-office by parties who have represented themselves as the servants of the firms or persons to whom they a addressed, but who had no authority for what they did. a few days ago Mr. Read, the chief constable of Leeds, received information that a letter, containing a bill or draught for the sum of 744 15s. had been sent through the Post-office by Mr. John Atkinson, of Bradford, to Messrs. Holt, wool-merchants, Leeds, and that it had not reached its destination. Inquiries were made, and suspi- [sup- suspicion] cion [Lion] fell upon a young man named John Warren, who some four or five years ago was in the employ of Messrs. Holt as an errand boy. On Thursday morning Mr. Read and Superintendent Graunan [Grain] apprehended the suspected person (John Warren), his brother (William Warren), his father (Peter Warren), and a, young woman who gave her name Hannah Leonard, and said she came from Hull. Peter Warren, a weaver of good character, says that his son John told him that he was going to marry the female prisoner, and he had ordered a of beer and a quan- [quay- quantity] uty, [duty] of meat and provisions for the celebration of that event. he whole of the prisoners were on Thursday forenoon placed before a bench of magistrates at the Court-house, when the following witnesses were examined - Mr. Atkinson, of Bradford, stated that on Monday, the 4th inst., he sent by post to Messrs. Holt, of Leeds, a bill of exchange, drawn by the Bradford Banking Company on Jones Loyd and Co., London, for 744 15s. Mr. Joseph Holt proved the non-receipt of the letter containing the bill of exchange. The witness added-Last night I went to the Leeds Post-office, and saw the post- [postmaster] master, who showed me a letter, now produced, and of which the following is a copy - ' Harrogate, Nov. 6, 1850. Herewith you receive a check for 400, and a note for 50, from your father, which please to acknowledge. From your affectionate father, Tuomas [Thomas] Hotr. [Hot] That letter, which was then sealed, the postmaster opened in my presence. It contained a check for 400, and a 50 bank-note that letter purports to have been written b my father, who resides at Harrogate, but it is a forgery. assume from that letter, and the contents ofit, [fit] that an original letter had been sent by father to our firm, with that check, and that it had been fraudulently intercepted at the Post-office, and then the party who had done it, finding that he could not use the check, had enclosed it in the forged letter above mentioned. Mr. Joseph Croft, clerk and cashier of the Bradford Banking Company, stated that on Tuesday morning last the prisoner, John Warren, presented for payment the bill of exchange for 744 15s. on being asked his name, the risoner [prisoner] said it was William Holt, and that he was of Taos. He wished to have the bill cashed in bank-notes and sovereigns. Believing his statement to be true, witness cashed the bill, and asked the prisoner to endorse it, upon which he wrote William Holt. Witness then said to him that it would require endorsing by the firm of Holt, Brothers, and he wrote that firm on the back of the bill. Witness then paid the prisoner John Warren the full sum of 744 15s. in bank-notes and sovereigns. (The witness then mentioned the numbers of these notes.) William Palmer Ord, cashier at the Leeds Branch Bank of England, said -On Tuesday last, between one and two o'clock, the prisoner John Warren came to the bank, and produced one or two bank-notes, for which he wished cash, but as they were London and Manchester notes I declined. The prisoner then produced a Leeds Bank of England note for 100, and wished me to cash that note for him. I to do so, and desired him to put his name and address upon it. He then wrote upon it the name of Henry Watson Brooke, and as he did not add the address to the name, I enquired of him his address, and he then gave Alfred-place. I gave the prisoner the full change, all in Bank of England 5 notes. He immediatel [immediately] crumbled up the notes, and was about leaving the ban without counting them, when I told him so, and he then opened them and counted them very hastily. In this way my attention was called to him. I entered ina book the numbers and dates of the notes I gave to him, and I have examined the twenty notes of 5 each produced by Mr Read, the chief constable, and they are the same notes I paid to the prisoner. Mr. Read, chief constable of Leeds, stated that he ap- [apprehended] prehended [apprehended] the prisoner John Warren in the house of his father, Peter Warren. He found the prisoner John Warren at breakfast with Hannah Leonard. In his left trousers pocket he found four bank-notes of 100 each, and in his right trousers pocket 9 or 10 in gold. A key of a box was lying upon the table, and witness asked John Warren if that was the key of his box, and he said it was. Witness asked him if he had money there, and he said No. Witness then went upstairs, and, on opening the box, found five Bank of England notes for #10, twenty-two notes fof [of] the same bank for 5 each, and 130 in gold. There was also 15 in gold in a purse at the bottom of the box, which Peter Warren claimed as his own. He also took from John Warren's finger a ring, and trom [from] his pocket a watch. He likewise took a gold ring and a silver watch from the girl Leonard, and a silver watch from Peter Warren. Upon being charged with the robbery, John Warren did not deny his guilt, but exonerated his father from any knowledge of the affair. Mr. Prentis, clerk in the Leeds Post-office, proved that the prisoner John Warren had, on the 28th of October, obtained the letter of Messrs. Stansfeld and Brown. As there appeared no evidence against Peter Warren, the father, he was taken out of the dock and examined asa witness. William Warren was also admitted evidence. Mr. Barker, Temperance Hotel-keeper, Briggate, Leeds, proved that the watch which was found in the possession of John Warren was stolen from his house in July last. It also appeared from other evidence that the prisoner had visited Harrogate on Thursday with a horse and gig, and that he then Fad 400 in cash in his pocket. The prisoners John Warren and Hannah Leonard, were then remanded till Monday next, the others being dis- [discharged] charged. SERIOUS CHARGE AGAINST A CLERGYMAN. The rectory of the joint parishes of West Horndon with In- [Ingrave] grave, distantabout [distant about] two miles from Brentwood, has been held during the last seven years by the Rev. Robert Abercrombie [Ascribe] Johnstone, who was appointed to it by his father, the Rev. R. Johnstone, patron of the living. Mr. Johnstone isa married man, without family, and since he obtained the rectory he has resided in the parsonage-house at Ingrave. About six weeks since he received under his roof, as a domestic servant, a young girl, named Mary Ann Doe, aged fifteen years and eight months, the daughter of decent parents, her father being an agricultural labourer, and her mother a very industrious woman, with a family of several children in ad- [addition] dition [edition] to the complainant. It appears that Mary Ann Doe remained a very short time under Mr. Johnstone's roof, and on Thursday, the 24th ultimo, in company with her mother, she presented herself before the bench of magistrates sitting at the White Hart Inn, Brentwood, and preferred a formal charge against her late master. The presiding magistrates on that day were the Rev. John Pearson and Captain Button, and these gen- [gentlemen] tlemen [gentlemen] having listened to the complainant's story, felt it their duty to take her deposition, which was made in the following terms My name is Mary Anne Doe. On the morning of Tuesday, the 8th October, I was at the house of the Rev. Robert Abercrombie [Ascribe] Johnstone, at Ingrave. I had just come down stairs. It was getting light, and upon my entering the kitchen found Mr. Johnstone there. e gave me the key of the door. He then took hold of me round the waist, and threw me down on his plaid, which lay upon the floor. The witness here described circumstances indicating that a capital offence had been committed, and went on to say, shrieked out. He said he was not doing me any harm. I then fainted away. When I recovered I found myself in a chair, and Mr. Johnstone was sprinkling water upon my face with his hand. On Tuesday last Mr. Johnstone came to my father's house, where I then was. He said he wished me to make it up, and not to say any- [anything] thing more about it. Itold [Told] him I could not. e then put half a crown into my hand, which I gave to my mother as soon as he was gone. After due consideration, the magistrates determined upon issuing a summons calling upon Mr. Johnstone to appear and answer the misdemeanour. The summons was made returnable upon the following Tuesday, and on that day Mr. Johnstone appeared before the bench, accompanied by Mr. Shaw, clerk to the magistrates of the Billericay dis- [district] trict, [strict] as his legal adviser. When the case was called on it was found the complainant was not in attendance, and on inquiry being made it was ascertained that not only was the girl missing, but that her father and mother also left their residence and gone no one knew whither, their retreat having been efisctesd [effected] bo hastily as to cut off all clue to their whereabouts. In reply to the magistrates inquiries Super- [Superintendent] intendent [intended] Coulson stated that he had great hopes he should be able to secure the complainant's attendance in a very few hours, in consequence of which a remand was ordered until the following Thursday, the accused being admitted to bail-himself in one bond of 500 and two sure- [sureties] ies [is] of 250 each. When the bench met on Thursday, the 31st [st] ult., the complainant was still missing. The accused again a and was now accompanied by Mr. Clarkson, the barrister, in addition to Mr. Shaw, his former legal adviser. Mr. Coulson having been asked whether he had any hope of being able to produce the complainant if another remand were granted, declared that he had, and upon this information a remand until Thursday last took place, on which latter day there was a full bench of magistrates in attendance. Mr. Clarkson, the barrister, also attended again for the Rev. Mr. John- [Johnstone] stone. The girl was in absent, and in answer to ques- [questions] tions [tins] from the bench, Superintendent Coulson said that he had been on the track of the girl, who had only left a house in the suburbs of London a few hours before he called there on Tuesday, and he still expressed it as his belief that he should be able to find her if the case was again remanded. Mr. Clarkson contended that inasmuch as there was no prosecutor present, the case must be dismissed, but the magistrates took a different view of the matter, and said it was evident the girl had been sent out of the way. The case was then remanded until Thursday next, the defen- [defend- defendant] dank being on bail. r. Johnstone was a very popular preacher in the neich- [neigh- neighbourhood] bourhood, [boyhood] and has taken rather an active part lately a forming some abuses connected with a foundation school in Brentwood. It was only very lately that he presided at the Brentwood Agricultural Society's meeting, and dis- [distributed] tributed [tribute] the rewards to the labourers and cottagers of the district.

DeEatH [Death] oF a Rich Miser.-Died last week, at Bland- [Blandford] ford-place, [place] Kentish-town, a miser of the name of Sheldon. He had formerly carried on the business of a breeches- [breeches maker] maker, but for the last twenty years had retired, and lived by the contributions of the neighbours, or any one who would assist him. He was so penurious in his habits as to deny himself a coat, and seldom wore a hat, and would pick up pieces of bread out of the road and eat them. The room in which he lived had not been cleaned for twenty years. He died suddenly, at the age of 85, leaving a fortune of upwards of 15,000. Latest Entelligence.
