' THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER. 9, 1850. Foreign Entelligence. [Intelligence] FRANCE. Paris papers chiefly filled with comments on enn [Inn] of Generel [General] and the differences betw [bet] EI and General ier. [er] The sy support the general, but the Soe [Se] and some other republican papers, seem to lean am favour of the president of the republic. General Neumayer [Number] hes refused to accept the command of the 14th and 15th military divisions, to which he was appointed on his removal from his command in Paris, The most contradictory reports are circulated respecting the relations between General Changarnier [Changing] and the president; but the latest rumour is that all differences ve been at least temporarily accommodated. The following order of the day has been published by General Changarnier [Changing] ;- According to the terms of the law, the army does not deliberate; in virtue of the regulations of the army, it is bound to abstain from every demonstration, and utter no cries when under arms. The General-in-chief reminds the troops placed mie [me] his command of these nn have e rs state that a number of perso [person] been eneted [Anted] at Lyons, Marseilles, Toulon, and an places, as suspected of being concerned in a consp [cons] said to have b en discovered at Ligon [Lion] rhe [the] Or ment [men] ers [es] continue to affirm that a great Co exists in the whole of the east and south of France. The Moniteur [Monitor] publishes a decree of the President of the Republic making seventeen new appointments among the judicial authorities in the departments. Despatches from Lille state that up to five o'clock on Tuesday the number of votes given to General Lahitte [Latte] amounted to 50,058. The number required by law for his election is 36,000, so that there is now no doubt of his being returned a representative for the department ef the North. ; The party of order has also obtained an important advantage at Masseube, [Massive] in the Gers, [Hers] where the Municipal Council had been dissolved in consequence of their Socialist opinions. At the new election all the Conser- [Cones- Conservative] vative [native] candidates were returned. General Changarnier [Changing] has published the following order of the day on the appointment of General Carre- [Carr- Caret] let to the place of General Neumayer [Number] By a decree of the President of the Republic, dated the 29th of October, General Carrelet, [Caret] commanding the 7th military division, is called to the command of the Ist, [Its] vice Gene- [General] ral [al] Neumayer, [Number] promoted to the superior command of the 14th and 15th divisions. In communicating this arrangement to the troops, the General-in-Chief doubts not that General Carrelet [Caret] will maintain in his division the spirit of order, discipline, and devotedness which has constituted the force of the army of Paris, and that, following the example of his predecessor, he will secure on every point the complete execution of the military tions. [tins] A proposition has been lately made to the French government to follow the example of Sweden and Holland, and to submit a bill to the Assembly to modify the Navigation Laws after the initiative taken by the British cabinet. The French minister for foreign affairs is said to be opposed to any change, and it is feared that matters will remain as they are for some time longer. SPAIN. Letters from Madrid, of the 31st [st] ult., announce the opening of the Cortes by the Queen on that day, with the usual ceremonies. The Queen was accompanied by the King Consort. In the speech from the throne her Majesty began by alluding to the hopes she had enter- [entertained] tained [gained] of presenting herself with a Prince or Princess on the occasion, but expressed her resignation to the will of Providence. She expressed satisfaction in being able to announce the happy re-establishment of diplo- [diploma- diplomatic] matic [magic] relations with Great Britain in a manner worthy of both countries. Friendly relations continued with other Powers. The Spanish expedition to Rome had been eminently successful. In the interior of Spain public order was maintained and past dissensions for- [forgotten] gotten. Tranquillity was for a moment disturbed in Cuba by a set of foreign pirates, who fled before the loyalty of the people and the bravery of the troops. The army preserved its reputation for discipline, and the navy was increasing in importance. Various re- [reforms] forms had been made in the penal code of Spain, all of which would be submitted to the Cortes by the Ministers. Reforms had also been effected in many other branches of the public administration. The public revenues continued to progressively increase. The plan for the definitive settlement of the public debt would be presented also that of Basque fueros. [fires] In a word, the state of the country Her Majesty pronounced to be relatively prosperous and favourable. The cere- [ere- ceremony] mony [money] took place in the new Palace of the Congress, the Chamber of Deputies. HESSE CASSEL. [CASE] INVASION OF HESSE BY THE AUSTRIANS AND BAVARIANS. A Frankfort letter of the 1st inst., in the Kolner [Kilner] Zeitung, [Stung] states that at one o'clock p.m. on that day, a Bavarian corps of 8,000 men, under the command of the Prince Thurn [Turn] and Taxis, and accompanied by 1,000 Austrian rifles and 20 field-pieces, entered the city of Hanau. [Han] The corps having been reviewed in that city by the Prince Taxis, a strong detachment of it pro- [proceeded] ceeded [needed] in the direction of Gelnhausen. [Greenhouse] The head- [headquarters] quarters remained at Hanau, [Han] supported by 3,500 troops -horse, foot, rifles, and artillery. Their entry was very sudden, and so little prepared were the inhabitants of Hanau, [Han] that great difficulty was found in quartering the troops. The inhabitants of Hanau [Han] remained tranquil, and the only demonstration they made was the tearing eff and pasting over of the proclamation of the Elector and of Count Rechberg, [recharge] who addressed them in his quality of Federal Commissioner. ENTRY OF THE PRUSSIANS INTO HESSE. According to advices [advice] from Cassel, [Case] of the 2nd instant, the 18th Regiment of Prussian Infantry, accompanied by a squadron of Hussars and a battery of artillery, entered that town on the morning of that day after a very severe forced night march. These troops were sent eff by General Groeben [Green] from Warburg as soon as he received intelligence of the entry of the Bavarians and Austrians on the opposite side of the Electorate. The military posts in Cassel [Case] were occupied by the Burgher Guard. The reception of the Prussian troops by the inhabitants was quiet but friendly. DENMARK AND THE DUCHIES. Our intelligence from Hamburg, dated November 1, states that the Holsteiners [Holstein] had attempted to provoke another skirmish, but the Danes had retired, by special erder, [order] within their entrenchments. A letter from Kiel with respect to General Hahn's mission, the object of which is said to be the negotiation of an armistice, in- [intimates] timates, [estimates] that the Holstein Government will not consent to suspend their military operations so long as Schleswig [Schedules] iz occupied by the Danes. The anticipated landing of the Danes at Heiligenhafen [Wiggenhall] had not occurred. UNITED STATES. The steamer Uuropa, [Europe] Captain Lott, reached the Mer- [Mr- Mersey] sey [se] on Sunday morning last, bringing letters and papers from New York to the 23rd ult., making her passage in 10 days 16 hours and 15 minutes. She brought 79 passengers, the usual mails, and a specie freight of the value of 100,000 sterling. Amongst other arrivals from various ports of the Pacific, the United States steamer Tennessee, Cole, arrived at Panama from San Frencisco [Francisco] on the 4th ult. with mails of the 15th September, 200,000 gold dust in freight, and 250 passengers. The gccounts [accounts] brought by the Europa are not of much importance. Political matters were quieter; although considerable feeling was still manifested against seizures of escaped slaves under the fugitive slave law. One such instance had occurred at Philadelphia again. At Boston a large meeting hostile to the act had been held, at which Frederick Douglass spoke. Much of the dan- [dangerous] gerous [grouse] excitement previously announced from Detroit had subs the seized having been purchased by public subscription. Multitudes of fugitives were crowding to the Canadian shores. The Washington journals publish the Attorney-General's opinion on the measure, and sanction demanded by President Fillmore before signing the act. From the New York journals we learn, that a great demonstration for the pacification of the slavery agitation was about to be made in that eity; [city] and from South Carolina and Texas it is stated that much less antagonism to a settlement was dis- [displayed] played. Fears of a general Indian invasion of Texas were entertained. i. Jenny Lind, after singing at three concerts at Phila- [Phil- Philadelphia] delphia, [Delph] had returned to New York, where she will pen the new Music Hall. The first ticket at Philadel- [Philadelphia- Philadelphia] phia [Phil] brought 625 dols. [sold] The advices [advice] from San Francisco, extending to the 15th September, announce the occurrence of a monetary aud [and] commercial panic, and the overthrow of many bank- [banking] ing and other firms. Calls had been met where possible with the greatest promptitude, and confidence was being restored. From the mining regions, although the accounts are conflicting they are generally of an encouraging character. A larger amount of gold will, it is said, be taken out this season than during any former one; but it will be divided among a much greater number of miners. The quartz rock, particularly in the Mariposa mines, is said to be yielding a rich return, with an encouraging prospect fora still greater abundance when the machinery for crushing the quartz should be put imto [into] successful operation. Several new and rich placers had been discovered by the expedition to the Klamath wt Umpqua [Imp] rivers, equalling any in California ; Silver we Ptive [Prove] claims had been entered. A rich -vcr [cr] mine had also been discovered, near Sonora, ath [at] ety [et] Tt being a foot great t omo, [ono] a great tunnel was constructed, to carry off the waters of Cisco, in various vessels, 5,112,880 dollars; whilst, duri [Dr] same peri [per] i a riod, [rid] the import of bullion amounted only to 295, ich' [inch] came Front Monica, y 000 lars, [las] most of which Ac-ounts [Ac-ounce] from Mexico, received rig Texas, arnzunce [announce] that the election of a president was exciting much sen- [sensation] sation, [station] and fears of a revolutionary movement were entertained. It was expected that congress, before closing its extra session, would reduce and reform the tariff. Yucatan advices, [advice] of the 28th September, report, Spanish a new outbreak of hostilities, and state that the inhabitants had been driven from the interior. From Guatemala we learn that confidence had been restored and that business was resuming its course. -- ---- -- Frelanvd. [Ireland] NCUMBERED [NUMBERED] Estates.-The estate of the we Dillon Browne, M.P., situated in the county of Mayo, was set up for sale on Tuesday, before the three Commissioners. The first lot, consisting of Glencorrib [Incorrigible] Lodge and demesne, the latter containing 422 acres, principally unset, and estimated, according to the Ordnance valuation at 158 10s. per annum, subject to the tithe-rate charge and an annuity of 27 13s. on an old life, sold for 1,650. The sale of the remaining lots was adjourned, the sums offered being held insufii- [unsafe- sufficient] cient [cent] by the court. It should, however, be stated that the poor's rate on the estates ranged from 4s. to 5s. in the pound. The next sale was of profit rents arising out of houses and premises in the city of Dublin, the property of Sir D. J. Dickinson, the whole of which found ready purchasers, and realized [realised] altogether 2,460. An estate in the county of Galway, the property of Mr. William Burke, of Queensbury, was offered in several lots, only one of which, asin [sin] the case of the Mayo estates of Mr. Browne, found a purchaser. It comprised five townlands, containing nearly 1,000 acres, producing a net annual rental of only 100 per annum, and a renewal fine of 25 3s. 8d., to be paid by the tenant on the fall of each life. After a tolerably brisk competi- [compete- competition] tion [ion] it was knocked down at 2,075. Mr. Ouseley Higgins, M.P. for Mayo, was, it seems, the purchaser of the Glencorrib [Incorrigible] estate of his predecessor in the repre- [prepare- representation] sentation [station] of that county. Emicration.-The [Emigration.-The] Kilkenny Moderator states that a considerable number of persons who recently emigrated to America returned home last week, being disappointed in their expectations of earning a livelihood in the New World. On the Duke of Devonshire's estates in Limerick a reduction of 25 per cent was made in the rent paid in 1849. A reduction of 12 per cent bas been made on the half-year's rent already paid this year; it is expected that the same will be allowed on the remaining half- [half year] year, and continued till times improve. THE Dustin Gazetre.--On [Gazette.--On] Monday the tenders for the printing and publishing of the Dublin Gazette were opened, when the offer of Mr. Alexander Thom, 87, Abbey-street, was accepted by the Lords Commissioners of Her Majesty's Treasury. The Gazette office will be transferred to Mr. Thom's establishment on the Ist [Its] of January next. THE DonNINGHURST [Dentist] MURDER.-Nothing of importance has t ired [red] relative to this dreadful tragedy since the committal of the prisoner. The handkerchief stained with blood found by Mr. Woodward, the prisoner's solicitor, in the bedroom of the accused, has m [in] handed over to Professor Taylor for analysation but although there can be little doubt as to the nature of his evidence on the sub- [subject] ject, [jet] it has not yet been made public. The prisoner has had several interviews with his friends since his incarcera- [increase- incarceration] tion. [ion] He continues to assert his innocence, and expresses himself confident of being acquitted of the dreadful crime with which he stands . A great deal of sympathy has been expressed on behalf of the parents of the murdered girl, Jael [Joel] Denny, who, in addition to the shock they have sustained by the loss of their child in so awful a manner, are suffering great privations owing to the inability of the poor old man to follow his ordinary occupation as an agricultural labourer. Last is nearly seventy years of age, and since the funeral of his daughter he has been so ill as to be quite unable to work. Some few charitable persons, whose attention has been attracted to the case, have ministered to the necessities of the old couple by trans- [transmitting] mitting [sitting] small donations, to be applied to their benefit, to Be illiam [William] Hammond, overseer of the parish of Donning- [downwards] wurst. A MAn's [Man's] NoTION [Motion] OF Payine [Paying] Poor-RaTEs, [Poor-Rates] -On Friday week, at the Manchester Borough Court, an old man of the labouring class appeared, who wanted Mr. Maude to interfere to obtain him relief from the overseers, of which he said he stood much in need; but, after hearing his statement, Mr. Maude told him he had no power in the matter, and advised him how to proceed to bring his case under the notice of the Manchester board of guardians. The following dialogue thereupon took place -Applicant Well, but I've paid t' poor-rates and King's taxes these thirty years, you know. Mr. Maude I cannot inter- [interfere] fere; [free] you must apply to the guardians. Applicant Well, but I always thowt, [that] when I paid t' poor-rate, that I wur [our] putting my money in a sort o' savings-bank, like. (Laugh- [Laughter] ter.) [te] Mr. Maude That's rather a new idea. Applicant I think it's rather hard, after I've paid t' rates for so many years, and now I I can't get it. Mr. Maude T'm afraid, my good man, that there are many of us who pay more into that sort of savings-bank than we like. It was only after repeated assurances that the magistrates had no power that the old man withdrew, a tly [ty] much astonished at the unsuccessful result of his application.- [application] Blachburn [Blackburn] Standard. ' REVIVAL OF 'THE Stocks. -The almost obsolete punishment of the stocks was revived at Braintree, in Essex, on Friday last, when the magistrates endeavoured to check the disgusting scenes of intoxication which have so repeatedly pained the respectable inhabitants in the streets, and called forth complaints from them. An offender, who for drunkenness had been fined 5s. and expenses, which he could not pay, was placed for six hours in this wooden prison-heuse [prison-house] but the disgraceful exposure and the jeers of the number of persons who assembled to witness the novel infliction, do not appear to have produced much effect, as it is stated one of the men present was in a state of intoxi- [into xi- intoxication] cation in the streets the following day. NEw [New] at LEEps.-A [Lees.-A] handsome new church, erected and endowed by the liberality of Mr. James Garth Marshall, M.P., and Mr. H.C. Marshall,'his brother, has just been opened at Leeds. The church has been erected from a design by Mr. George Gilbert Scott, architect, of London. Generally, it is in the lancet or early pointed style; but it differs from the generality of modern churches in that style in following a different type from that usually adopted. Instead of the nave and aisles with a clerestory, or of three high open roofs, it is constructed on the prin- [pain- principle] ciple [Copley] of the Temple Church, London; the Lady chapels of St. Saviour's, Southwark, and of Salisbury, and many other old examples and there is vaulting of stone of equal height throughout. It is, perhaps, the only modern church which is vaulted with stone through its whole extent-a distinc- [distinct- distinction] tion [ion] which renders its internal effect peculiarly striking and novel. The exterior is plain and simple, though massive and dignified but the interior is highly decorated, and the general effect is very rich and beauti [beauty] The accommoda- [accommodation- accommodation] tion [ion] is for between 600 and 700 persons. The situation of the building is in a newly-constituted district or parish called Little Holbeck, very near to the large flax mill be- [belonging] longing to Messrs. Marshall, and to the day schools sup- [supported] ported bythem. [them] The sacred edifice was.consecrated by the Bishop of Ripon an Saturday last, and the Rev. Dr. Hook, Vicar of Leeds, preached a sermon on the oceasion, [occasion] Lord and Lady Monteagle, [Eagleton] Professor Whewell, [Wheel] Master of Trinity College, Cambridge; the Hon. and Very Rev. the Dean of Ripon, Lady de Vere, Mr. William Beckett, M.P., and a large number of the clergy and gentry of the district, attended the ceremony. On Sunday morning Professor Whewell [Wheel] preached in the new church, and at evening ser- [se- service] vice the sermon was preached by the Rev. R. N. Barnes, Vicar of Kingsclere, ts, the former minister of the dis- [district] trict [strict] of Little Holbeck. MystERIOUs [Mysterious] DIsAPPEARANCE.-The [Disappearance.-The] neighbourhood of Blockley and Moreton-in-Marsh, in Worcestershire, and on the borders of Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire, is in a state of considerable excitement in consequence of the sudden disappearance of Mr. George Gardiner, who for the last fifteen years has held the responsible situation of bailiff, or steward, to Lord Northwick. [Northwich] At first it was feared that his disappearance had been involuntary, and accompanied with violence but after inquiry there is found to be too much reason to believe that he has premeditatively [premeditated] decamped with a large sum of money belonging to his noble employer. It appears that on the last day on which he was seen in the neighbourhood he called upon Mr. Kettle, an attorney, of Chipping Campden, near Blockley, and delivered into his hands a packet, desiring him to keep it in safe custody for a short time, until he saw him (Gardiner) again. At the time of his disappearance Lord Northwick [Northwich] was staying at Cheltenham, and on being communicated with he went over to Blockley, and then the rumour of the steward's absence came to the ears of Mr. Kettle. That gentleman at once proceeded to have an interview with his lordship, taking with him the parcel which had been left in his care, and which on being opened, was found to contain his books of account of farming transactions, sales of stock, &c., as between Gardiner and his lordship. It appeared by these books that all entries of sums received by Gardiner for farming produce, &c., ceased with the month of April last, and as the transactions have been considerable, the defalcation of the absentee is estimated at between 2,000 and 3,000. The police have not yet succeeded in tracing the fugitive further than Warwick, where he arrived in a ig on the day on which he gave the parcel into the care of fir. Kettle.-Times. THE FRIMLEY MURDER.-The four prisoners, Levi Har- [Harwood] wood, James Jones, Samuel Harwood, and Hiram Smith, charged with being concerned in the murder of the Rev. G. E. Hollest, [Holes] were brought up for re-examination on Fri- [Friday] day morning before the bench of magistrates, at the House of Correction in Guildford. Only two witnesses were ex- [examined] amined. [mined] Francis Potter, a labourer, ot Stoke, stated that on the evening of the murder he saw two men, one of whom he recognised as Levi Harwood, on the road to Frimley, about two miles from Guildford.-Charles Weston, a cer's [er's] assistant, deposed that on the 25th or 26th of ptember, [pt ember] the prisoner Jones bought a pennyworth of gunpowder at his master's shop.-The magistrates then remanded Samuel Harwood for a few days, and formally committed the three other prisoners to take their trial. THE ALLEGED Case oF CUTTING AND WOUNDING AT Bato.-On [Bat.-On] Monda [Monday] morning, Ogle Wallis, formerly a cornet in the 12th ragoon [Dragoon] Guards, who has been twice remanded on a charge of assaulting Henry Coplestone, [Palestine] and Ann, his wife, with a razor, with intent to do them some bodily harm, was brought up for final examination. Mr. Coplestone, [Palestine] who ap very pale from loss of blood, and had his head bound up, was accommodated with a chair whilst giving his evidence. He deposed that he was land- [landlord] lord of the Queen-square Tavern, Burton-street, and re- [recapitulated] capitulated the circumstances of the assault, which have already appeared in our columns, After a full investigation of the facts of the case, the Mayor, after consul with his brother magistrates, said that all the evidence before the magistrates was, that the prisoner had used a stick. A great deal had been said about a razor, and cutting and wounding, but they had no evidence of the use of any razor at all, Under all the circumstances the magistrates would inflict the highest penalty in their power, viz., a fine of 5, or in default two months' imprisonment. The court was crowded during the hearing. The decision, it is stated, has given a good deal of dissatisfaction, THE REPRESENTATION OF PONTEFRACT. The Hon. Beilby.Richard Lawley, of Escrick Park, the son of Lord Wenlock, 'on. y, entered Ponte- [Pone- Pontefract] fract [fact] as a candidate for that borough, under most en- [encouraging] couraging [encouraging] circumstances, Several friends received the hon. gentleman at the house of Mr. W. Wood, and afterwards paraded the market-place and principal streets, preceded by a band of music and banners. Tur. W. Moornovse, [Moorhouse] of Knottingley, who, having referred to the elevation of Mr. Martin to the bench, and to h e.cellent [e.excellent] manner in which that gentleman had discharged the duties of their representative, ex- [expressed] pressed his great pleasure in having now to introduce a Yorkshireman, a member of a noble family, the son of one who was a reformer in times when reform was not fashionable. The Hon. Candidate was warmly cheered on making his appearance, and then proceeded to address the assembly. He stated his firm adherence to the cause which had been so well and so frequently fought by his family in this and other counties both before and since the passing of the Reform Bill, and avowed his inten- [intend- intention] tion [ion] to support those principles to the utmost of his power if returned to parliamnt. [Parliament] The hon. gentleman having referred to some of the passing political topics of the day, concluded by observing that he could not better express his sentiments than in the felicitous lan- [language] guage [gauge] of the distinguished prince at the banquet at York, at which he (Mr. Lawley) had the honour to be a guest-namely, that he was liberal from feeling, and 'that while he wished to be prudent and discreet in the application of the means of its development, he was sure he had none of the germs of old toryism [truism] in his composition. (Loud applause.) A voter from the crowd asked Mr. Lawley his views on the extension of the suffrage, to which the hon. gentleman answered that his feeling was decidedly with progress, but that it must be in accordance with the ad- [advancing] vancing [dancing] intelligence of the people. (Loud cheers.) Mr. Lawley afterwards proceeded on his canvass. Mr. MoorHovseE [Moorhouse] announced that he had received a letter from Mr. Baron Martin, expressing his gratitude to the electors of Pontefract, which was received with much applause. ee THE LATE CASE OF POISONING NEAR ABERYSTWITH. [abreast] ATTEMPT TO MURDER ONE OF THE PRIN- [PRIM- PRINCIPAL] CIPAL [PRINCIPAL] WITNESSES. The painful feeling of alarm and mistrust excited by the alleged murder of Mrs. Ann Jones, of Ponterhyd- [Pointed- Ponterhydfendagaed] fendagaed, [endangered] by the administration to her of arsenic, has been greatly aggravated by an attempt which has been made to murder one of the principal witnesses for the prosecution. It will be remembered that among the persons whose testimony bore most strongly against the accused person, Mrs. Elizabeth Jones, was a man named John Jones, who is in somewise [some wise] related to her, and who resided in the neighbourhood of Caemaur. [Came] In the course of his several examinations upon the coroner's enquiry this witness stated, at the request of the accused, he went to the shop of Mr. Humphries, a druggist, residing at Aberystwith, [abreast] and purchased for her some arsenic, alleging to the shopman who served it, that he wanted it for the purpose of killing rats; that, upon his return with it to the prisoner, he inti- [into- intimated] mated to her his suspicions that she had mischief in her head, to which she replied that it would not matter to him, as no one would come upon him for it that he took home the arsenic to his house at Caemaur, [Came] to which the prisoner came the next day and received it from him that at a later conversation she said she hada [had] mind to do something, and while in custody she con- [confessed] fessed to him that she had put arsenic into the old woman's teapot, but that if he would send about a report that he had bought the arsenic for the deceased, he might save her life. The witness also stated that the prisoner and her mother attempted to bribe him, by offering him a cheese and other things not to give his evidence against them. This witness, therefore, is the most material of all, and on Monday evening a daring attempt was made to murder him. He was on the road, near to the old Abbey of Ponterhydfendagaed, when he was attacked by three powerful men, who made a most desperate attempt upon his life. They were armed with knives, with which they tried to cut his throat, and but for the obstinacy of his struggles would have no doubt succeeded. Fortunately the violent resistance which he offered caused the knife to be diverted from the direction in which it was used, and instead of cutting his throat it deeply wounded his chin, passed across his mouth, and divided his cheek on the opposite side. He grew very faint from loss of blood, but after his assailants had left him he contrived to crawl into the abbey, when he found that his legs were likewise cut. He is suffering so severely that he was unable to be taken before the magistracy, and the police are still engaged in investigating the poisoning case, and it is hoped that punishment yet be, brought home to the guilty party. i ACCIDENT TO THE MARQUIS AND MARCHIONESS OF ELY. -A letter from Milan states that the marquis and mar- [marchioness] chioness [Marchioness] had a narrow escape on the 20th ult. While crossing the Alps by St. and when within a few yards of the Airolo, [Airily] the horses took fright, and the postil [Postal] ion lost all command over them. At the time they were but a few inches from the precipice when their courier, Vincent, seeing their danger, lea from the box, and ia an instant arrested the horses. e danger was averted, but Vincent had an ancle [Lance] dislocated, and was carried to an auberge, [Berger] where he remained some days; but Lord and Lady Ely were enabled to proceed to Milan on the follow- [following] ng morning, ex route to Florence. THE LEGAL APPOINTMENTS.-Sir John Jervis took his seat as Lord Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas on Saturday. Sir R. M. Rolfe, the new junior vice- [Chancellor] chancellor, took his seat on Saturday in the court hitherto occupied by the Vice-chancellor Knight Bruce. Mr. Samuel Martin, Q.C., leader of the Northern Circuit, and member for Pontefract, will fill the seat on the bench, vacated by the appointment of Baron Rolfe to the Vice-Chancellorship. MEETING aT EXETER.-A meeting, convened by the Dean, was held on Saturday last, at Exeter, when it was resolved to. petition the Queen and Parliament against the recent popish innovations. A Russtan [Russian] TUNNEL.-The Emperor of Russia proposes, it is said, to have a tunnel bored under the Neve to that executed,foy [executed,oy] Mr. Brunel under the Thames. M. Alaric Falconnet, [Falcon net] a cclebrated [celebrated] French engineer, has been applied to, to furnish plans for this undertaking.-Galiganz, [undertaking.-Gilligan] AN EVENTFUL CAREER.-Our obituary this week re- [records] cords the death of an individual (Anna Duchess of Palata) [Plate] the history of whose fortunes would fill no small m [in] romantic story. She was the daughter of John Peele,.a small farmer at Corringham, near Gainsborough, who eked. out a somewhat declining livelihood by dealing in horses, &c., having previously been in better circumstances. -Béi [Be] an only daughter, and aware that she possessed no sm share of rustic charms, our embryo duchess, despising the limited sphere in which she lived, resolved to try her fortune elsewhere. She became a dress-maker in Gainsborough, and resided subsequently in Hull, and it is said as house- [housemaid] maid in a family in London, where her attractions obtained for her the attentions of a person of rank, te whom she afterwards averred she was married; and she from that time occupied a position where her fortunes led her into contact with some of the highest classes. A few years afterwards she astonished her former companions by appearing with her carriage and livery -servants in the character of chere [here] amie to Mr. Fauntleroy, then a flourish- [flourishing] ing banker in London. Unfortunately the riches of the banker were of a doubtful character and some time after- [afterwards] wards he was convicted of forgery, and paid the penalty with his life. Affected by the ruin, but not participati [participate] in the crime of Fountleroy, [Foundry] our heroine struggled bravely with fate, and generally maintained a fair appearance in society both in London and in Paris. She shortly re- [reappeared] appeared in her native county as Duchess of Palata. [Plate] At this time the fortunes of her family had reduced them to be the occupants of a small cottage at Morton, and age ren- [rendering] dering [during] her dither incapable of active exertion, he filled the humble office of rural postman. To her honour it should be recorded that she enabled her parents to pass the re- [remainder] mainder [remainder] of their days in comfort. Six or seven years ago she again visited her native place, a widow, his grace the Duke of Palata [Plate] having paid the debt of nature. Her mother she left at Morton, paid the last duties to her father (some- [somewhat] what ostentatiously), and volunteered her assistance to pro- [promote] mote the advancement of her female relatives. Again, however, a cha came o'er the spirit of her dream; and some three or four years ago the public journals an- [announced] nounced [announced] her marriage to the son of an irish [Irish] clergyman of good family. In this character, accompanied by her niece as femme de chambre, [chamber] but not by her husband, she once more visited Gainsborough and the scenes of her youth; after making her mother an allowance, to be paid monthly (to prevent some avaricious parties from defrauding her of it, as she had too much reason to suspect would be the case), she again departed for Italy, in good health; but death, which spares neither rank nor character, has closed the last scene of all this strange eventful history. The above are but the broad outlines of her career, although it would be easy them to almost any limit as re- [related] lated [late] to the writer of this notice they seemed more like the tales of romance than of veritable narrative.-Stamford Mercury. THe [The] REGENT's ParK [Park] BuRGLARY.-On [Burglary.-On] Monday morning, the four prisoners, John Mitchell, William Dyson, James Mahon, alias Hollindale, [Holland] and William Robinson, charged with burg at James Holford's, Esq., Holford House, Regent's were brought up at the Marylebone Police Court, London. The prisoner Mitchell, who was so severely wounded by one of Mr. Holford's servants, still looked exceedingly ill. His left arm was, as upon the former occasion, in a sling, and he was faint and dejected in the extreme. The evidence was of little importance, and prin- [pain- principally] cipally [principally] affected two women, who are not in custody, but whom the police suspect of being implicated in the robbery. These women having more than once visited the prisoners in gaol, have been tracked by the police, and are said b them to have been the known associates of Dyson an Mahon. Sergeant Barry, who is preparing the case, stated that he had reason to believe another person, not in cus- [us- custody] tody, [toy] was concerned in the burglary, and requested a remand, which was granted by the magistrate. Application was made to disc Robinson, against whom there is nothing but suspicion, and an attempt was made to set up an alibi on the evidence of his brother and sister. The magistrate, however, determined to detain him; and all the prisoners were remanded until Monday next.

[Journals] WILL. THE NATIONAL EDUCATION SCHEME BE SUCCESSFUL (From the Times. ) The educational question is one of feeling, of taste, of propriety, and of justice but it is also a question of prudence, and therefore of probabilities. If it is taken up merely by harmless visionaries, or even by such men as For, it migh [might] t easily be confined to the regions of rhetoric for at least the ent [end] generation. But it is now taken up by practical men who fight battles in order to win them, and do actually win them. There isin [sin] our days so much brutum [brut] fulmen, [fulsome] so many men thundering away, at the pitch of their lungs, apparently for the sole purpose of making a disagreeable noise, that the public fails to recognise the difference between an effective and a non-effective agitation. When the former is on the eve of success the public is surprised and considers itself rather taken i, pimply it thought this agitation as great a humbug as the rest [C] thar [that] Gr it may be that, as John Bull is addicted to bling, he is not prepared for those who go a little further. As we would rather not be surprised by aresult [result] contrary to our expectations, we think it better toenquire [to enquire] whether the persons we have to deal with bite as well as bark. Itis [Its] as necessary to know this with regard to men as it is with regard to dogs. A com- [commercial] mercial [commercial] scheme is rejected the moment its projectors are known to be men of straw, anda [and] political scheme may be safely dismissed as soon as we know that its authors can do nothing but write pamphlets, hold meet- [meetings] ings, and talk. On the other hand, when a man like Mr. Cobden-a man of practical sagacity and singular success-throws himself into the breach and his reputation upon carrying a point, we cannot help re- [rending] nding [ending] it as half won. Mr. Cobden has declared that he will henceforth devote himself to the establish- [establishment] ment [men] of a comprehensive public education; and, con- [considering] sidering [considering] the man, we cannot help suspecting that some- [something] thing of the sort will be done. . But the most practical man, and the most able man, is tied by the nature of his subject. The best agitator must have a case, and the utmost he can do is to hasten the settlement of a social question by afew [few] years, or perhaps a generation, and also to give it a little bias after his own way of thinking. But he must have a capital to proceed upon. Has Mr. Cobden, then, any capital in the educational question Has he a good case in his hands Sorry as we are to declare it, the man who undertakes to prove the ignorance of our labouring population. can feel no other difficulty than the abun- [bun- abundance] dance of his materials. There is no denying it-the balk [ball] of our fellow subjects will not bear an examina- [examine- examination] tion [ion] into their attainments, their religion, or their morals. We tremble at the bare idea of a commission of enquiry into this delicate subject. There is hardly any estimate, however unfavourable, however malicious, that would come near the deplorable truth. Travellers tell pleasant stories of the profound ignorance and the ridiculous notions they find in Asiatic or other semi- [semi barbarous] barbarous populations. We can only say that for every such story we could producea [produce] parallel in our own country. An average labourer in one of our agricultural counties we take to be about as ill informed in matters not immediately relating to his employment, or his domestic affairs, as an average Hindoo; [Hind] and should he be at all thrown out of his sphere and left to his own resources, he is as much a fish out of water as a Lascar [Scar] in the streets of this metropolis. Now, ignorance itself is a very great evil. All of us who have the power try to escape from it and learn everything that we can. The Almighty would not have given us such expansive faculties and such inexhaus- [anxious- inexhaustible] tible [table] materials of knowledge, had knowledge been otherwise than a blessing. But it is wholly unn [Inn] to go so deep into the question. It has long since been ruled in this country, that knowledge is a blessing, and instruction a neccessary [necessary] of life. Our Constitution pro- [protests] tests against the dogma of an infallible Church, and drives men to choose for themselves among the many religious communions in the land. They cannot go about the inquiry, with the least chance of success, without a respectable amount of information. Our social and economical institutions drive the young labourer from his parish into the wide world, tell him that it is his first duty to shift for himself, and meet him with the threat of a prison whenever he falls back upon his native spot. Such a policy, at all events, is not consistent with the ments [rents] for leaving the labourer ignorant and helpless. Either leave him to vegetate on the spot of his birth, or make him a man before you send him on his wanderings. Again, we are all very busy on plans of emigration. We are at an immense expense in the foundation of colonies, and in soldiers and fleets to protect them. We congratulate ourselves on every man who leaves these isles for British America, for Australia, and even for the United States. Statesmen, ladies, clergymen, and philanthro- [philanthropy- philanthropist] piste of every degree, are all employed in draining off our men without land to lands without men. Surely thig [this] presupposes every effort on our part to prepare the emigrant for his distant journey and his arduous Feareer. [Fear] The poor settler, who is to carry' civilization into the midst of savages, into solitudes, [solitude] into tions, [tins] into darkness and crime, ought to be supplied with as large a stock of knowledge as we can manage to procure for him; But everywhere the most bitter complaints are heard of the English settler, Whether the Englishman works on a French railway, or tends sheep in Australia, or takes land in the interior of the North American continent, it is still the same story- [story that] that his national superiority forsakes him, and he looses easte [east] for want of mental rescources. [resources] The English labourer is often found less able to shift for himself than the German, or even the Irishman. Thus, while much is required from the labourer, he has but little of that help which he more peculiarly re- [requires] quires. A father does not send his son to India, or design him 'for a profession, without an appropriate education. It is the policy, or rather the necessity, of the age to thrust out the teeming population of our agricultural counties into distant colonies or our man ing towns. Let it be so; but at all events let us prepare the adventurers for their arduous lot. The expatriation of the ignorant and helpless is nothing more or less than penal transportation. The same may be said of our great manufacturing towns. If we drive people into masses, let us at least qualify them for a 'condition that puts many trials and many temptations in their way. Mr. Cobden observes very justly, that people complain of the brutality of our manufacturing population, forgetting that half of it is of rural origin. Such then, is the case in the hands of these gentlemen. All our institutions create a necessity for education ; but education there is none, except of the most re- [restricted] stricted [strictest] character, and very little of that. With such a case, and with such agitators, there is very little doubt of success. We only trust that those who are qualified to give a safe turn to the controversy will not waste their influence by an indiscriminate opposition. STATE OF THE PRUSSIAN AND AUSTRIAN FINANCES. (From the Times.) So far as regards mere revenue and expenditure, under existing conditions, Prussia has something to boast of. Her budget for 1849 was about 14,000,000, of which the moderate sum of 750,000 was all that was required for the interest of the national debt, then estimated at 18,500,000. For thirty years her debt has been in process uf [of] reduction, and 375,000 is yearly appropriated to a sinking fund for this purpose. Her army is estimated to cost no more than 3,100,000 for the current year, being less than a quarter of the revenue. The sum of 2,000,000 was added to the ting debt in 1848, and a new loan of 3,000,000 has been raised in the present year, against the eventualities of the German question. What at first sight appears to complete a vision of finance almost Utopian to a British understanding is the circumstance that Prussia has immense state domains and crown lands, moderately estimated at 55,000,000, which provide the interest and secure the capital of the debt. But these finances, which we are compelled to take on trust, and which are enveloped, even in the best informed circles of ia, with a certain inscrutable mystery, must be submitted to a little analysis, and also be compared with the political and geographical circumstances of Prussia. If out of 14,000,000 only 3,100,000 be required for the army, and only 1,125,000 can be spared for the interest and redemption of the debt, what becomes of the remaining 9,775,000 It is evident that the income must devour itself before it reaches the exchequer. The crown lands, like our own, must cost as much as they yield, and the taxes must be ab- [absorbed] sorbed [sobbed] by the collector. The figures admit of no other hypothesis, for the civil administration of the empire, exclusive of tax-gatherers, cannot honestly account for a moiety of this mysterious balance. But a war, it is evident, would make the direst havoc with the ian resources. She is all frontier, all ram- [rampart] part, all river, all road, open at every pore, with' in- [infinite] finite breaches to defend against hostile attack and internal dilapidation. Scattered, and even heteroge- [together- heterogeneous] neous, [noes] she would have to struggle for cohesion as well as for defence. In such a state her customs would dwindle and her rents disappear. Her expenditure would be substantial, and her revenue on paper. Her army of 220,000 men, supposing only the younger section of the Landwehr to be called out, would certainly cost while in active service as much as 10,000,000, which, under the circumstances, would probably be the extent of her revenue. Having in our view nothing more than a war with Austria, which, to say the least, is only half the danger in the Prussian horizon, we cannot set down the annual expenses of that war at less than the whole of her income, with the prospect of decreasing revenue and increasing expense. The case of Austria is confessed. Her affairs are in such utter confusion that our correspondent, in the vain attempt to reach a terra jirma, [Jim] starts from a dividend of 4s, in the pound in 1811, This is onl [on] J y one of four bankru [bank] es. Not to follow her h the long series of cial [coal] embarrassments and dishonest evasions, it is enough to observe that at the end of 1849 the public debt amounted to 103,500,000 there 18 floating debt of 22,500,000, which the State Owes to the bank; and the paper mosey fn room forty feet long and twenty-five feet wide.-Dundee Advertiecr, [Advertiser] lation [nation] amounts to 34,500,000, the 3,000,000, leaving 31,500,000 of of paper unprotected. Such protection is, of course, none at all; and Austrian ina year of and only three years from the commencement of these troubles, is now as much depreciated as our own paper was after almost a generation of war. The Austrian expenditure in 1849 was estimated at 16,000,000 for nine months, for about 21,330,000 for the year; the army being set down at the igerodibly [incredible] figure of 6,000,000. As that army during the Hungarian war was reckoned at 500,000 men, it is evident that part of its cost must have been out of this estimate. The interest of the Austrian debt may be guessed from the above-mentioned capital; and as the expense of collect- [collecting] ing the taxes was not less than 4,140,000 in 1839, it will not be much less now. Yet to meet a confessed expenditure of 21,000,000, the income in 1849 was not more than 9,330,000 a year, the revenue being thus not half sufficient for the expenses. Such a state of things, it must be admitted, offers some inducements to war. As Austria cannot possibly continue to maintain her standing army, though it be the rope of sand that binds her discordant dominions, it is possible that she may cherish the hope of quartering it upon Federal Germany. She may catch at that straw. An active presidency in the affairs of the Federation may re- [resuscitate] suscitate [state] that unity which has recently received such terrible shocks on both the Danube and the Po. Foreign war is a very old specific for dissentions [dissensions] at home. These, however, are but dangerous expedients. The surest result of a war is its cost, and should Austria be once fairly embarked in as le for the German supremacy with her formidable rival, she must soon be reduced either to another Bankruptcy, or to still more dishonourable and ruinous expedients. In the face of his- [history] tory, we cannot indulge the hope that the prospect of in- [insolvency] solvency will ever make Austria wise. Herlatemovements exhibit a reckless disregard of prudential considerations. The truth, however, must be known for the benefit of all whom it may concern. The notoriety of her insolvent condition may lead to such a pressure from without as make her attempt more by moderate counsels than by formidable demonstrations. Her present course, as well as that of her great rival, tends to the subjugation of Germany, and small pity will either receive if they are both ruined in the attempt. DeatH [Death] oF LorD [Lord] RaNcLirFE.-The [Radcliffe.-The] morning papers of Saturday announce the death of Lord Rancliffe, [Radcliffe] at his seat, Bunny Hall, Nottinghamshire, on Friday morning. George Augustus Henry Anne Parkins, Baron Rancliffe [Radcliffe] in the Irish rage, and an English baronet, was born in 1785. He beens [been] baron in 1800, and married Lady Elizabeth Mary Forbes, daughter of the Earl of Granard, [Grand] in 1807. Lord and Lady Rancliffe [Radcliffe] separated some years ago, and her ladyship las lived in France. Lord Rancliffe [Radcliffe] has left most of his large personal property to Mrs. Burt, who, for about twenty years, has been living upon very intimate terms with him. The barony is extinct the baroneicy [baronet] falls to Mr. Thomas Parkyns, [Perkins] of Ruddington, near Notting- [Nottingham] ham and the entailed property goes to Lord Rancliffe's [Radcliffe's] nephew, Sir Richard Levinge, [Leaving] of Knockdrin [Doctrine] Castle, Ireland. In early life Lord Rancliffe [Radcliffe] was a Whig and something more, but in the seclusion of his latter years it is said that he became a Protectionist. HORRIBLE MURDER IN JERSEY.-A great deal of painful excitement was caused on Sunday, in the island, in conse- [cone- consequence] quence [Queen] of the discovery of a most horrible and revolting murder, which was committed in St. Saviour's Road, on the person of Mary Carleton, a pensioner's wife. The murder was not discovered until about eleven o'clock on Sunday morning. It appears that the husband of the deceased woman left his Lowen [Lower] about nine o'clock on Sunday morn- [morning] ing, and locked the door after him, when some of the neighbours, finding that the house was not opened as usual, forced open the shutters of the lower room, where, horrible to relate, the unfortunate woman was seen through the window lying upon her back, with her legs crossed, and weltering in her blood. An alarm was immediately given, and the woman's husband, upon whom suspicion seems to have fallen, and who, there is no reason to doubt, was the murderer, was arrested and lodged in gaol. It appears from what we can learn up to the present time, that the unfor- [unfair- unfortunate] tunate [tuna] man and his dec [de] wife were in the habit of living in constant discord together, so that even had their next door neighbours h any noise it would not have been noticed. It seems that the unfortunate woman had returned from market on Saturday evening, with her little supplies for the Sunday's dinner, consisting of a pig's head, vegetables, &c. It is supposed that they were both in a state of intoxication, and a quarrel ensued, which ter- [te- terminated] minated [mounted] in the horrible murder of the unfortunate woman. The unfortunate deceased has left a family of six children behind her-two sons in the army, two daughters in ser- [se- service] vice, and two in the island. The husband denies having had any knowledge of the murder. He states that he heard a noise in the house, and upon going to see what was the matter he found his wife lying upon the floor in the dreadful situation described above. PaINFUL [Painful] Case oF SEDUCTION.-In the Court of Ex- [Exchequer] chequer, on Monday, before Mr. Baron Platt, an action was brought by a Mr. Foster, a brickmaker, [brick maker] in connection with the Great Northern Railway Company, residing at West Barnet, against Mr. Howard, also a brickmaker, [brick maker] living at Hadleigh, in which the plaintiff sought to recover compensation in damages for the loss of his daughter's services, in consequence of her seduction by the defendant, who is a married man, and the father of four children. It appeared in evidence that plaintiff and defendant were on terms of intimacy, residing in the same locality and in- [intimately] timately [ultimately] connected in trading transactions. Miss Foster, who at the time of the melancholy transaction was only sixteen years of age, in October, 1849, went with the de- [defendant] fendant, [defendant] by her parents' consent, in his gig to visit his wife and family at his own house. While on their journey thither the defendant attempted to take liberties with her, but on this occasion she successfully resisted his advances, but did not name the matter either to his wife or any con- [confidential] fidential [financial] friend. After she had been visiting at defendant's house about a fortnight he entered her bed-room early one morning, and commenced taking liberties with her, which ended in his accomplishing his purpose. A second nocturnal visit was paid to her by defendant, and with the same result, and from which latter connection she proved enceixte. [existence] The most singular points in the case were these-that although the defendant's wife was on each occasion in bed in an adjoining room, Miss Foster raised no alarm or in- [informed] formed any one of what had transpired, although she re- [remained] mained [maiden] visiting at defendant's house three weeks after the last criminal connection took place, nor did she inform any member of her own tamily [family] of her misfortune until external appearances rendered further secrecy impossible. Mr. Baron Platt, in ing up, remarked upon the painful nature of the case, being that of a man, who, being a husband and the father of a family, had taken to his house the youthful daughter of a friend and seduced her. But there were features in the case which led to the conclusion that she had not behaved in so satisfactory a manner as she ought to have done. She had not only not given any alarm at the time of the commission of the offence, but she had even submitted to a second act of sexual in and allowed some months to elapse without having any complaint, or giving her own family an inti [into] the treatment she had received at the hands of one family's friends.-A fter [after] consulting for a quarter of an the jury found for the plaintiff,-damages 200. THE CHARGE aGaInst [against] A LoNDON [London] GOLD REFINER.-At Barbican, gold and silver refiner, whose name has been so familiar to the public in connection with charges of having received stolen property, appeared before Mr. Alderman Gibbs for the purpose of answering charges of having received property which had been stolen in the city of London.-Mr. Powell, barrister, to prosecute the part of the crown, and stated that in consequence of communications received by the metropolitan police, Lund, of the detectiva [detective] department of the force, and another officer, went, on the 2nd October, to the residence of the prisoner in Barbican and took him into custody. Upon searching the premises, they found a con- [considerable] siderable [considerable] quantity of plate, amongst which were articles which would be the subject of the present inquiry. One of these articles was a piece of plate, which had been stolen from the Rainbow Tavern, in Fleet-street. Part of that article had been obliterated with a file. Another piece had been taken from the house of Mr. Godden, [Golden] a gentle- [gentleman] man who resided near Maidstone, and whose house had been plundered some nights previously and there was a variety of other articles which would, in due time, be brought forward. It was proper to observe that the pri- [pro- prisoner] soner [sooner] had come forward voluntarily to meet any accusations which might be preferred against him in the city of Lon- [London] don, as would be stated by Mr Lewis; and as the prin- [pain- principal] cipal [principal] witnesses were not present, it was necessary to take no more evidence than wauld [would] be n to authorise a remand, until the details could be produced.-Inspector Lund deposed to the facts stated by Mr. Powell in opening the charge and the waiter at the Rambow [Rainbow] Tavern identi- [dent- identified] fied [field] the piece of plate (a spoon) said to have been stolen from that house. It was lost, he said, on the 29th July. The prosecution then requested a remand, which was granted, and the alderman consented to take bail in two securities net E100 [E] each, and she of 200. The bail was imm [mm] 'y supplied, and the prisoner, who had man friends in the courte [court] retired with them. a y MIDLAND ASSOCIATION OF MEcHaNics' [Mechanics] InstITUTES.- [Institute.- Institute] Tuesday Morning last, the delegates of the several mechanics' institutes forming this useful association, met (ey penises in the hall of the Leicester Town seum, [sum] tor the purpose of transacting their usual annual business. J. E. Denison, Esq., M.P., the retiring president of the association, was in the chair, and was supported by F, F. Hollin, Esq., president-elect, and R. Harris, ' M.P., president of the Leicester Mechanics' Institute. There were also present among others, the Rev. A. T. Blythe, hon. sec. of the association, George Dawson, M.A. F. Swanwick, Esq., Mr. Tunally, [Naturally] and the Rev. W. Crosskey [Crossley] (Derby), the Rev. B. Carpenter, -- Heymann, [Human] Esq. and Mr. E. Renals [Renal] (Nottingham), Mr. Langford (Birmingham), four delegates from Grantham, the delegates of the Tamworth and Uttoxeter institutes, and some others. AN INFURIATED Ox.-About four o'clock on Monday evenmg [even mg] as a man was driving, up King's-road, St. Pancras, from Smithfield, a number of oxen, one of the animals be- [became] came infuriated, and darting from the herd attacked two men, whom it so wounded, that they were carried insensi- [insensible- insensible] ble [be] to their homes, After having exhausted its rage upon the men by goring them to the extent mentioned, it turned into Chapel-street, Somerstown, [Somerset] where it rushed at a poor woman named Margaret Carron, who had her infant in her arms. The beast butted the woman most frightfully, tear- [tearing] ing her leg open right up to the hip. As soon as the ox was got away from her, she was placed, insensible and apparently dying, in a hackney coach, and conveyed to the niversity [University] Collage Hospital, where the house physician pronounced her wounds to be most rous. [sour] Strange to say the infant escaped uninjured. After quitting the woman the animal rushed at a boy whom it likewise severely lacerated.
