But, Sir, it would be a ri nge [ne] perversion of judgment and true feeling were we to allow Se this, to detract in the slightest degree rom the pleasure we feel in your personal advancement. It is 4 source of sincere pleasure that we are enabled cordial congratulations upon the signal success with which you ave been favoured in urging your claims to the honourable and enviable position you have so ortunately [fortunately] attained. Knowing as we do from valuable experience, your very emi- [mi- eminent] nent [sent] professional talent and abilities, we are not surprised that a should stand pre-eminent among seven hundred competitors ; we might perhaps also be allowed to offer our felicitations to eee [see] individuals who have been so favoured as to secure the nefit [benefit] of your future serviccs, [service] And, however distinguished be the circle of your future labours, we are certain your character will never loge thereby any of its lustre but only shine th. resplendently when cleared of the cloud of obscurity. We have yet, sir, however, a most important and pleasing duty to discharge, a duty which it is said is sufficiently rewarded by the performance; but, if the reward were coutingent [continent] only upon the well performance of this act, we are rather desponding [responding] of our success, for we are painfully sensible of our inability to convey to you any adequate expression of our very cordial and lively thanks for the invaluable services rendered us. services you have 80 and gratuitously conferred would, alone, be suffi- [suffer- sufficient] cient [cent] to awaken in the breasts of the most indifferent a sense of thankfulness, but the feeling derives additional stimulus from the condescending and amiable manners you have ever manifested. In returning you an acknowledgment of the many and various obligations under which we are placed, we to assure you that the future welfare of yourself and family, will alwayz [always] be to us an object of the most anxious solicitude and in conclusion. we would express our most hearty wishes, that you may ex- [experience] perience [Prince] a long, prosperous, and happy life. Huddersfield Mechanics' Institution, August, 1850. M. CHEMERY [CHERRY] replied in a lengthy and affecting speech, expressive of his surprise at the testimonial submitted, and in acknowledgment of the same he took occasion to urge on his class a continuance in those studies in which they had been mutually engaged, which, if prosecuted with energy, would be found a means of pleasurable amusement and a valuable adjunct in the transaction of the varied mer- [Mr- mercantile] cantile [Castile] affairs of this district. .

Owing to the increased exertions of the committee, there is every prospect that the coming exhibition will exceed those of former years, it having been determined to distri- [district- distribute] bute the handsome sum of 120 in prizes. This year, also, a distinct class of exhibitors has been formed, viz., a Cotta- [Coat- Cottagers] gers' [hers] Class, who will be enabled to compete cottager with cottager, instead, as heretofore, of cottagers having to com- [compete] pete [Peter] with a class of exhibitors of more extensive means. Among the prizes to be this year awarded are three silver cups, of the value of three guineas each, and a number of other prizes in silver tea-spoons, silver sugar-tongs, tea- [teapots] pots, &c., for vegetables of various kinds. The arrange- [arrangements] ments [rents] for the exhibition are in a forward state, and we un- [understand] derstand [understand] that there is every reason to anticipate that a large number of competitors for prizes will be forthcoming. The committee also announce galas, on the two days suc- [such- succeeding] ceeding [feeding] the day of exhibition, for which Moore's Quadrille Band has been engaged. Lopcixc [Lipscomb] Hovuses.-The [Houses.-The] investigations which have lately been made into the lodging house accommodation of the town, have brought to light the most disgusting exhibitions, in the different crowded localities where unlicensed lodg- [lodge- lodging] ing houses prevail to a very large extent. Immense num- [sum- numbers] bers [bees] have been crammed into ill-ventilated and confined cellars and rooms, without any regard to sex, or the other necessary requirements of civilisation, and the natural result has ensued, viz., fever, disease, wretchedness, and immo- [imo- immorality] ralitv. [relative] Under the powers of the local Improvement Act efforts are being made to render the accommodations of this nature more in accordance with the sanitary improvements of the day, by compelling the occupiers of lodging-houses to take out a license, or, in case cfnezlect, [conflict] to subject them to a penalty. In pursuance of this object no less than twenty-three persons, principally Irish, from the different parts of the town, as Post-office-yard, Castlegate, Man- [Manchester] chester-street, [street] and Upperhead-row, were summoned before the magistrates, last Saturday, for keeping unlicensed lodging-houses. On the application of the Clerk to the Board of Works the hearing of these cases was adjourned to this day (Saturday). Information has reached us that the whole of this body have expressed their determination to be revenged upon the police-force for having brought them before the magistrates, and one of the night-watch, we are informed, has since narrowly escaped severe injury from a volley of stones. We have no doubt but the authorities are fully prepared to carry out the law, nor do we fear but that the police-force will ultimately close many of these hot-beds of crime and disease. THe [The] Becornc [Beacon] LETTER DoDGE.- [Lodge.- Lodge] Within the last few days, two young Scotchmen named James Robertson and Robert Crowther, have been perainbulating [perambulating] the streets, but more particularly the outskirts of our borough, in the ostensible character of dealers in lead pencils, pens, and other small- [small ware] ware, but really as members of that fraternity who obtain their living by the various dodges coming within the cate [care] gory of a beggar's bill of fare. Not content with disposing of their articles they had in their possession a number of petitions, already enveloped and addressed, praying for assistance. Amongst other addresses were the names of Mrs. Kilner, the Rev. Mrs. Maning, [Manning] and Miss Clay. Fortunately, their residence in the town had not been very extended when they came under the notice of our active police superintendent, Mr. Heaton. On Wedresday, [Wednesday] Mr. Heaton was passing down West-parade, when he observed Robertson and Crowther at Mrs. Nether- [Netherwood] wood's door, and, suspecting their errand, he went up and interrogated them. They told him they were selling pencils and pens; but whilst he stood talking, a little girl brought out a letter, and, in returning it, said Mrs. Netherwood had nothing for them. Mr. Heaton opened the letter which he found to be a begging epistle. He took them into custody, and, on Thursday last, they were examined at the Guildhall, before Joseph Brook and George Arnitage, [Armitage] rs., when they stated that they came from Edinbro', [Edinburgh] and, being out of work, were carrying a few pencilsand [pencil sand] pens; and the petitions in their possession had been given to them by a clergyman on leaving Scotland. On promising to leave the town they were discharged, on handing over to the police their petitions. HUSBAND AND WIFE aGAIN.-We [again.-We] have had on one or two occasions lately, in our police-reports, to notice charges brought by wives against their husbands for ill- [treatment] treatment, and we fear, from the repeated recurrence of such offences, the evil is on the increase. A. charge of this nature was brought before the sitting magistrates at the Guildhall, last Thursday, by Ann Clayton, who was far ad- [advanced] vanced [advanced] in pregnancy, against her husband George Clayton, living in Dog-yard, for having turned her out of doors on the previous night, after shamefully ill-using her. Two neighbours were examined, and there was every proof of the inhumanity of the husband, notwithstanding his protes- [protest- protestations] tations [stations] to the contrary. The Bench very properly bound him over for twelve months, himself in 10, and two sureties of 5 each, to keep the peace towards his wife, or, in default of finding sureties, to be committed for one month. Hibern [Bern] An IrnisHMan's [Irishman's] Hint.-Thomas Costello, an. rnian, [Hernia] and one of the witnesses in the stabbing case, laid a charge before the magistrates, at the Guildhall, on Thursday last, against John Tierney, of Castlegate, for having committed a most ungentlemanly assault upon him. It appeared that Costello and Inspector Beagle, whilst searching for M'Loughlin, on the previous Tuesday night, had disturbed John Tierney, who felt very reluctant to get out of bed so early as twelve o'clock in the night. However, in time he shook off his slumbers, and allowed complainant an Sedewick [Sedgwick] to enter. They proceeded in their search, but not finding the person they wanted, were quietly retiring, when Mr. Tierney took his brother countryman by the euff [eff of the neck, and after giving him two or three 1 the unoffending Thomas down pushes, was going to prope. [proper] s stairs in a manner which would have been much more ffective [effective] than agreeable. In this, however, he was disap- [dis- display] i interference of k, Tierney pointed, owing to the interferer denied the charge, and complained of the manner in which the policeman and Costello condu [conduct] their search. The Bench considered that he had attempted liceman [policeman] and his attendant in the dis- [district] ruct [rust] the . ee of their duty, and fined him 1s. and expenses. AssavLt.-Michael [Assault.-Michael] Burke was placed before ths citeing [sitting] magistrates, the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Tuesday charged with committing a serious aoe [are] t upon George Dyson, about ten minutes to twelve on Sunday t last, in Duke-street. The complainant, George Dyson said that on Sunday night he and a person tam John E had been at the Cross Keys, top of High- [Highness] sess [less] en bid the landlord good-night and were going home, 'when suddenly some one struck e with a spade and he fell senseless to the ground the person then s tacked witness and inflicted severe injuri [injury] on his a -Hague was called but knew nothing her than that he was knocked down and remained insensible for some time, The defendant denied all knowledge of the affair, and proved that he was in Halifax until Monday mornmg [morn mg] tween eight and nine o'clock. The case was scoondingly [seconding] discharged. Phere [There] was tit the Dente [Dent] ioe [ie] vet hope had been and we yet hope to From tat the offenders have been SERIOUS CASE OF STABBING AND WOUNDING. We regret to have this week to place on record the recurrence of one of those painful outbursts of human passion and revenge, which Occasionally result in the destruction of life, but more frequently with the infliction of the most cruel and us injuries-and which create whenever they occur an unnatural, intense excite- [excitement] ment, [men] and leave behind the remembrance of cruelty and inhumanity, which we would much rather forget than recall. The case to which we are drawing parti- [part- particular] cular [circular] attention occurred last Tuesday, between nine and ten in the evening, on the Halifax-road, a distance of about two miles from Huddersfield. A party of Irishmen left Rochdale on Tuesday, to go a harvest- [harvesting] ing, amongst whom were Thomas Keoghan, [Keogh] James M'Loughlin, Thomas Costello, and John Flinn. It appears that some offence has been excited in Rochdale amongst the Irish inhabitants against M'Loughlin's brother, and a threat had been made to way-lay and thrash him. M'Loughlin hearing of this made the re- [remark] mark that he would thrash the person who did so. During the journey from Rochdale this became the subject of warm discussion, more particularly between Keoghan [Keogh] and M'Loughlin. N othing [thing] however occurred until the whole party entered a small public house on this side of Marsh Moor, a little after nine o'clock. At the house they had something to drink and becoming excited, and partially intoxicated, Keoghan [Keogh] struck M'Loughlin. The two combatants rose and fought heavily until they were separated by their companions. Except- [Excepting] ing M'Loughlin, the whole party then left the house; and he shortly afterwards followed. He passed on his way another public-house, and after going a little further Keoghan, [Keogh] Costello, and Flinn again joined him, when the quarrel between Keoghan [Keogh] and M'Loughlin was renewed with greater vindictiveness and ill feeling, and during the scuffle M'Loughlin drew from his pocket a sharp clasp knife, about two and a half inches in the blade, with which he stabbed Keoghan [Keogh] in several parts of the body, inflicting severe and dangerous wounds. They separated voluntarily, and Keoghan [Keogh] was not aware of any injury until he had travelled some distance, when he found himself bleeding from the back of the head. He became quite faint, and was taken to Mr. Swift's, druggist, Westgate, where his wounds were partially dressed by Dr. Baker, and afterwards removed to the Infirmary. M'Loughlin had gone away in another direction. Information was given at the police office of the affair, and through the activity of Inspector Sedg- [Sedge- Sedgwick] wick, M'Loughlin was found about one in the morning, at Noylan's [Nolan's] lodging-house, Kirkgate, and was taken into custody. Both parties appeared at the Guildhall, on Thursday, and the examination was con- [conducted] ducted before J. Brook and G. Armitage, Esqrs. [Esquires] Mr. J. I. Freeman watched the proceedings for the prosecu- [pros ecu- prosecution] tion. [ion] M'Loughlin is a young lad of about 16 or 18 years of age, and Keoghan, [Keogh] who was very weak, ap- [appeared] peared [pared] to be between 20 and 30. We believe they are both from the County Leitrim. On being sworn, Thomas Keoghan [Keogh] said he left Roch- [Rochdale] dale on Tuesday last, for Huddersfield, with the inten- [intend- intention] tion [ion] of working at the harvest, in company with John Costello, John Flinn, and the prisoner. They arrived in the neighbourhood of Huddersfield between nine and ten o'clock at night. They went into a public-house, about a mile from Huddersfield. The prisoner and witness began to quarrel, and witness believed he struck M'Lougblin [M'McLoughlin] first. They then fought, and after a short time were parted by their companions. Witness, with the others, left the prisoner at the public-house. They went into another public-house a little further on, and the prisoner, M'Loughlin passed on the road before the house. When they met again prisoner was on the foot- [footpath] path, and said something, but witness did not recollect what. Witness struck him and they commenced fight- [fighting] ing again. Witness then went about forty yards, and feeling something wet in his neck, put up his hands, and found he was bleeding, and said, I am all cut. He did not become faint from the loss of blood, until he was taken to the druggist's shop (Mr. Swift's, West- [Westgate] gate). What took place there he could not tell, but he believed he had his head dressed. He became insensi- [insensible- insensible] ble. [be] He was afterwards taken to the In He had a cut on his head, one under the left arm, and another on the left shoulder. He had not quarrelled with any one one clse [close] but M'Loughlin. Thomas Costello was then examined, and after de- [deposing] posing to the facts detailed by the previous witness, said he heard M'Loughlin say he would have revenge on Keoghan [Keogh] before they got to Huddersfield. They then dispersed, and when witness again met Keoghan, [Keogh] it was near to a toll-bar (Edgerton.) He was very blocdy, [bloody] and witness wiped his face with a handkerchief. Prisoner was not then with them. Witness asked Keoghan [Keogh] who had inflicted the wounds, and he replied it was young M'Loughlin. Witness then gave evidence as to taking M'Loughlin to the druggist's shop, and also to going with Sedgwick to Noylan's [Nolan's] lodging- [lodging house] house. John Flinn was sworn, and said that he saw the prisoner at the second fight, at the last toll-bar, about a mile from the town. M'Loughlin had a knife in his hand whilst they were fighting. His other evidence was merely corroborative of the previous witnesses. Mr. Robert Baker, surgeon, on being sworn, said, that on Tuesday night last about half-past ten, he accident- [accidentally] ally went into Mr. Swift's druggist shop. The prose- [prosecutor] cutor [tutor] was seated in a chair bleeding, and was in a weak state from loss of blood. He made an examination ; and, first of all; under prosecutor's shirt, he found a wound from two to three inches in length. The instru- [inst- instrument] ment [men] by which the wound was inflicted had penetrated upon the external pleural [plural] covering of the lung, but there was no wound on the lung. The wound was on the left hand side, just below the heart. It was a con- [concise] cised [cased] one, cutting down between the ribs, but had not penetrated the cavity of the chest. There was another wound beneath the shoulder blade-a superficial wound compared with the other. There was a scalp wound also on the top side of the head; it did not, however, penetrate through the cranium, and was also a superficial wound. He thought the knife which had been taken from the prisoner was a very likely one to have given the wounds, for they had evidently been made with a sharp instrument. Inspector Sedgwick was next sworn, and said that from information he had received he went to Mr. Swift's druggist shop and found the prosecutor sat on a chair teeding, [tending] and very faint. His jacket was very much cut. The jacket was produced, which had several holes in it-one about three inches long, below the left arm, and another below the shoulder, and one in the neck. Costello was present and said he could recog- [recon- recognise] nise [nine] the prisoner, so they went together and found him asleep in the third storey of Noylan's [Nolan's] lodging-house, Kirkgate, about five minutes to one o'clock. In the prisoner's right-hand trouser's pocket, witness found a knife newly sharpened. The knife was laid on the table, and is a common clasp knife, with a blade about two-and-a-half inches long. There were marks of blood just below the hilt. He said he had been quarrelling with some of his mates on the road. Witness then went to the Infirmary, and saw the wounds already described. The prisoner was then asked if he wished to speak, and cautioned that whatever he might say would be taken down. He made a statement to the following effect. There had been a dispute between his brother and some others at Rochdale and it had been said they would waylay him. Prisoner had remarked that he would thrash those who didso. [didst] In the road between Rochdale and Huddersfield they, Keoghan, [Keogh] Costello, Flinn, and himself called in at a public house just on this side of the moors (Marsh moor). Keoghan [Keogh] there asked him if he (prisoner) had used such words, and they began to quarrel. Keoghan [Keogh] then asked him to fight, but prisoner said he did not want to fight. Keoghan [Keogh] then said did you not say you were fit to fight any one who would beat your brother, and struck him twice. Prisoner then took hold of him, and both of them went to the door, prosecutor tore his coat to pieces, and kicked him about the head, and ribs, and gave him two kicks one on the knee and the other on the shin bone. He black- [blacked] ed prisoner's eye, and hit his face, and made his nose bleed. Whilst separating them, Costello told Keoghan [Keogh] to kick prisoner on the nose, but he did not do so. There were some Englishmen in the house who told him afterwards that as he was rising the other Irishmen took him by the foot and pulled him back again. The others then left the house, and he did not know where they had gone too. He shortly followed, and passed another public house, and he thought his mates must have been there. As he came near the town Keoghan [Keogh] and the others came up to him saying what brought you there. Prisoner replied he was on his road going to town to take up his lodging. Keoghan [Keogh] told the prisoner he should not reap harvest along with him, and prisoner replied he did not care as he did not think pro- [prosecutor] secutor's [prosecutor's] company was very good. They then had some words, and Keoghan [Keogh] hit him on the head, and took him by the neckerchief and twisted it until witness could not draw his breath. Prisoner thought Keoghan [Keogh] was going to kill him as he could not draw his breath, so in self defence took out his knife and gave Keoghan [Keogh] a few stabs. They had all been drinking. The istrates [magistrates] committed the prisoner to York to take his trial for the offence. SUSPICION OF STEALING RaBBITS.-A [Rabbits.-A] young lad, named William Thorp, was observed on Wednesday night, a little after ten o'clock, in the neighbourhood of Lane, carrying a small basket under rather suspicious circumstances, which on examination was found to contain four rabbits, for which he could not account. On the following morning, however, information was received that Jonathan Brook, of the Lane dye-works, had lost two rabbits and, on being shown those taken from Thorp, he immediately identified two of them as his property. As the other two had not been claimed, Mr. Superintendent Heaton applied to the magistrates, on Thursday, to remand Thorp till to-day (Saturday), which was granted. West Riorse [Rose] Lanp [Lane] Socrery.-Huppers- [Score.-Suppers- Huddersfield] FIELD BRANCH.-The number of shares taken stood for some time at ten, then they doubled totwenty. [to twenty] Within the last ten days Have doubled to forty, and are bid- [bidding] ding fair to double this last number. The members met at No. 2, Market-walk, last Monday evening, and will m [in] again next Monday evening at eight o'clock, when all who feel an inclination to have some freehold land are invited to enrol their names. They have bought their first estate at Halifax, their third at Bradford, and at Birmingham their sixth. Let Huddersfield do likewise, and if they have no freehold in the town there is plenty in the surrounding DISTRICT NEWS. HOLMFIRTH. Lane INDEPENDENT CHAPEL.-On Sunday last, two sermons were preached in this place of worship, by the Rev. John Cockin, until lately and for thirty years pre- [previously] viously [obviously] the faithful minister located here. Full congre- [Congress- congregations] gations [nations] assembled to hear their old and revered pastor ; ant collections were made in aid of the chapel ToraL [Total] ABsTINENCE.-The [Abstinence.-The] fifteenth annive [Annie] of the Holmfirth Temperance Society has been celebrated during the current week. Three days-Sunday, Mon- [Monday] day, and Tuesday-have been devoted to the celebra- [celebrate- celebration] tion. [ion] On the Sunday evening, Mr. Vickerman, of Dead- [Deadmanstone] maustone, [stonemason] preached a teetotal sermon in the Town-hall, to a goodly number of hearers. Monday, however, was the principal day. In the afternoon some 300 advocates of entire abstinence from intoxicating drinks took tea together in the large room at the Town-hall. After tea, some good speaking took place, in which Mr. Glover, from Bury, and Mr. John Hanson, Methodist preacher, at present at Holmfirth, were the principal speakers. Mr. Hanson affirmed that the time was not far distant when every public-house in the land would be closed, and adrunken [drinking] man should never again be seen stag- [staggering] gering [gearing] through the street. A procession of abstain- [abstainers] ers [es paraded through the streets with a band of music and though the procession was meagre, and the con- [converts] verts [vert] few, still, under the auspices of Mr. J. Woodhead, as chairman, the entire proceedings passed off satisfac- [satisfaction- satisfactorily] torily. [truly] Nutsances.-Amongst [Nuisances.-Amongst] the many abominations rank- [ranking] ing under this head, must be mentioned one of the first class, which, during the whole of Thursday last, an- [annoyed] noyed [noted] and prejudiced the health of all who came under its influence. A local journal is assuredly the best me- [medium] dium [drum] for reporting these evils, and of drawing to these the attention of those whom it may concern. The abomination now complained of consists of a manure- [manure heap] heap, consisting of offal and such like ingredients, belonging to Mr. George Bower, the butcher, of Upper- [Upper bridge] bridge. On the day mentioned, the heap was being retnoved [retained] and such was the stench created, that every neighbour was glad to flee the neighbeurhood [neighbourhood] for safety. Those in the more immediate vicinity-Mr. Wimpenny, Mr. Lomax, and others-suffered severely from the nui- [ni- nuisance] sance, [dance] and, of course, dread a repetition of the offence, unless the nuisance committee, as in duty bound, in- [interfere] terfere [interfere] to prevent it.

BREAKING THE PEacE.-On [Peace.-On] Saturday last, at the Guild- [Guildhall] hall, Huddersfield, James Majin [Main] and Andrew Dearnley were charged by Joshua Sanderson with breaking the public peace, in Newsome, on the 30th of July. The constable was called up on Tuesday morning, about one o'clock and he never before saw such disorderly work in his life. For upwards of an hour he was in danger of his life. From the evidence it appeared that Dearn- [Dear- Dearnley] ley was bouncing very largely as to what he could accomplish, as a pugilist-until, at last, he excited the ambition of Maffin, who thereupon determined to try his powers. It did not appear who was the visitor, but they were both taken into custedy. [custody] Fined 5s, each, and expenses for two witnesses. The magistrates took the opportunity of expressing their entire disapproval of the practice becoming general amongst district constables of bringing four or five witnesses to prove the most trifling offence. They considered two was quite sufficient, and should only allow expenses accordingly. STRIKING a ConsTaBLE.-On [Constable.-On] Saturday last, at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, John Jackson Drury was charged with committing an assault upon the Newsome constable. Beaumont, the parish functionary, gave evidence that Drury was very drunk at the time, and had struck him (complainant) for recommending him to behave himself. Fined 2s. and expenses. Drunk anD [and] DisoRDERLY.-On [Disorderly.-On] Saturday last, at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, Benjamin Bradley was charged by Constable Reed with being drunk and disorderly, at Lockwood, on the 27th ult. Defendant had just met with a few friends, and, for the sake of auld [old] lang [lane] syne, [sine, he had more than he could comfortably balance himself with. Discharged, on payment of expenses.- [expenses] Joseph Vickerman was then charged by the same consta- [constant- constable] ble [be] with threatening to strike him whilst in the dis- [discharge] charge of his duty. There was a fight, and on the con- [constable] stable going up to quell the disturbance, the defendant struck him. Fined 5s. and expenses. ALMONDBOURY. [ALMONDBURY] THE RUSHBEARING.-This [Rush bearing.-This] event, which is looked for- [forward] ward to in the neighbourhood with much interest, was commenced on Sunday last. The amusements varied with the tastes of the populace. The temperance men put in their claim by giving a lecture in the Town-hall, on Sunday, for which Mr. W. H. Chadwick, of Manches- [Manchester- Manchester] ter, [te] was engaged. At six o'clock a large meeting was held in the open air, when addresses were delivered by Mr. Chadwick and Mr. J. C. Booth. Monday was the day appointed for the annual gala, but in consequence of the unfavourable weather it was postponed till Saturday (this day), but the gates were thrown open late in the evening, when some six hundred persons visited the grounds between eight and tenp.m. [ten.m] On Tuesday, a tea party took place in the gala ground, of which some 100 persons partook, and on the gates being again thrown open, the gala field was crowded by the working classes, who amused themselves by the practice of the various innocent games provided for by the com- [committee] mittee. [matter] In addition to these attractions several sick society processions and lodge anniversaries took place, and as a whole, Almondbury Rushbearing Rush bearing may be said to have gone off in a rational and orderly manner. a FemMaLe.-This [Female.-This] locality has of late be- [become] come noted for aggravated assaults and minor offences, and every court day furnishes proof of the state of insub- [in sub- insubordination] ordination in which the inhabitants of the neighbour- [neighbourhood] hood live. One of the victims of this propensity, Mary Senior, appeared at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, last Saturday, charging John Greenwood with assaulting her on the 30th ult. It appeared that defendant was sup- [supposed] posed to have broken several windows in a house occu- [occur- occupied] pied by complainant's brother. She remonstrated with him, when he replied that he would do the same for her, and immediately struck her three or four times over the head. Mrs. Senior's daughter had been witness to the offence, and on wishing to interfere, Greenwood was about to inflict upon her summary punishment, when she ran away he at once gave chase and beat her with a large stick for about thirty yards. Defendant again started the object of his pursuit, and used his cudgel for about 100 yards more. For the defence, Greenwood denied that he knew the plaintiff, but called witnesses to prove that he had been very ill-used, and severely poised. The bench were satisfied that the assault was proved, whatever provocation might have been given, and as they could not sanction any man taking the law into his own hands, they should fine the defendant 2s. and expenses. In default of payment, he was com- [committed] mitted [fitted] to the House of Correction for fourteen days. On Sunday (to-morrow), two sermons will be preached in the parish church, by the Rev. David James, incum- [income- incumbent] bent of Kirkdale Church, Liverpool, when collections will be made in behalf of the choir. CLAYTON WEST. We understand that the anniversary of the Sabbath school connected with the Independent Chapel, Clayton West, will be held next Lord's Day, when two sermons are to be preached by the Rev. B. Beddows, [Beds] of Barnsley. Opp-FELLows [Opp-Fellow] Procession. On Monday last the Manchester Order of Oddfellows, assembling at Emley, near Clayton West, held their anniversary. After meeting at the Lodge Room they walked in procession to the Primitive Methodist Chapel, where a truly solemn, faithful, and appropriate sermon was preached to them by the Rev. Mr. Smith, Independent minister, of Clayton West. The members of the order then pro- [proceeded] ceeded [needed] through the village, and returned to partake of an excellent dinner, provided by the landlord of the Oddfellows Arms, and served up in the Wesleyan school-room, kindly lent for the occasion. After doing justice to the provisions bountifully supplied, the mem- [men- members] bers [bees] adjourned to transact business connected with the society. ' MELTHAM. NeicHsours' [Nicholas] good people of Meltham are free from some of those little incidents of every day life which give a zest and excitement to tho small coteries found in all country towns and villages, assembling under the auspices of a leading scandal- [scandalmonger] monger, to discuss and pick holes in the characters of eet [et] all who may come under their notice and we are sure the late interesting little contest beeween [been] Mrs. Mary Thornton, a pretty, intelligent, sharp-looking lass, and Miss Hannah Maria Taylor, a neat, high-spirited country sé help, will not have been allowed to pass unnoticed. Should the local school for scandal not yet have be- [become] come acquainted with the particulars, we will briefly append them. On the 15th ult. Hannah Maria Taylor, by the instructions of her master, went to the house of Mrs. Thornton to affix a notice that the house was to be let, and that whilst in the performance of this duty she was rudely expelled, and finally laid prostrate on the floor, by Mrs. Thornton, without having offered any provocation. Mrs. Thornton's version was that Miss Taylor most insultingly came to her residence to affix a notice on a part of the house where she had no right to do so, and finding remonstrance vain, she removed the chair, which was again, however, placed near the wall, and Miss Taylor mounted it, nothing daunted, but unfortunately the chair was removed this time with greater energy, and Miss Taylor, along with it, were tumbled unceremoniously into the road. Being unable to arrange the matter, the offended and offender appeared at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Tuesday. Twotechnical [Two technical] objections were taken tothe [tithe] pre- [precept] cept [Sept] by Mrs. Thornton, which the magistrats [magistrates] were so un- [ungallant] gallant as to overrule, and being of opinion that it was a neighbour's quarrel, they recommended Mrs. Thorn- [Thornton] ton to pay the expenses, which hint she acted upon. JEaLousy.- [Jealousy.- Jealousy] William Shaw, an old man who has got a young wife, was placed in the dock, at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Saturday last, on a charge of assault, laid by George Charlesworth. The defendant was said to have struck Charlesworth whilst going to work on the 26th July. Shaw pleaded in extenuation that the de- [defendant] fendant [defendant] had locked up his (Shaw's) wife, and would not let her at liberty. The whole mystery was explained when the fair damsel was placed in the witness box. She said that Charlesworth, who is a young married man, had decoyed her into his house, and then locked her up, and insulted her most shamefully. John Turner said that he was going to his work on the Friday morn- [morning] ing, and when he got near to Meltham Mills he saw Shaw throw a large stone at Charlesworth, which hit him in the neck. Defendent [Defendant] was unable to pay any fine, and was therefore ordered to find security for 5, to keep the peace towards Charlesworth for twelve months. LINTHWAITE. THE ScHootmastER [Schoolmaster] ABRoaD.-The [Abroad.-The] following is a verbatim copy of a notice posted on the church door of Linthwaite, on Sunday last Linthwaite, August 3, 1850.-A [W.-A] notes that a special sessions of Justes [Justus] Metting [Meeting] for the purpose of granting lincenes [licences] to persons keping [keeping] or being abought [about] to keep alle [all] house to sell exiscable [excusable] liqurs [liquors] by ratail [retail] will be held at the Magistrates office in Hudersfield [Huddersfield] in and For the said Divison [Division] on Thursday the twentyth [twenty] sekend [second] Day of Augst [August] next at the hour of ten in the farenoon [forenoon] of the same day.-William Saville, Constable. FRIENDLY NeIcHBouRs.- [Neighbours.- Neighbours] At the Guildhall, Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field, last Saturday, Susannah Sutcliff charged Sophia 'Parrott with assaulting her, on the 29th July, without any just cause or offence. Defendant complained that Mrs. Sutcliffe had thrown a can of hot water over her, and she had in consequence given her a good slap over the face. The bench recommended them to make it up, and they agreed that defendant should pay 5s. to the poors'-box [poor'-box] and expenses. AssauLt.-George [Assault.-George] Whitehead charged John Schofield, at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Saturday last, with having assaulted him, on the 23d July, at Linthwaite. Complainant and his wife was going quietly home, when on passing the defendant who was sat upon a wall, he heard himself called by a fictious [factious name. He turned round and learnt that it was Schofield who was taking that liberty. He remonstrated, and for so doing gota [got] good thrashing. Defendant was ordered to pay 10s. and expenses, LINDLEY. Trespass.- [Trespass] At the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Satur- [Star- Saturday] day last, George Taylor, Allen Boothroyd, and Joseph Mal- [Al- Mallinson] Linson, [London] were placed before J. Starkey, J. Brook, and G. Armitage, Esqrs., [Esquires] charged by Joseph Hague, with hav- [have- having] ing, on the 22nd of July, committed damage upon his property to the value of 1s. Hague was calculating without his host in reference to Boothroyd, whom his own witness said was not one of the party who had com- [committed] mitted [fitted] the trespass. The bench dismissed the case against him, and fined the other two 1s. each and costs. KIRKHEATON. A FaTHERLY [Father] DocBerry. -Mr. Doc berry. -Mr] John Halliday, whose beat is in the village of Kirkheaton, appeared before the Huddersfield bench of magistrates, on Saturday last, to lay a charge of playing at a certain game of chance, against two juvenile offenders, named Thomas Whitehead and Kay Jerkinson. [Jenkinson] On the 18th ult. Mr. Halliday was going past neighbour James Hirst's door, when he saw a crowd of lads indulging in their propensity for pitch and toss. He watched them for half an hour, and then very reluctantly took the two offenders into custody. He said further- It was a shame to see how these lads carried on, and the inhabitants were determined to break the neck of it. He had cautioned them many times, and on one occasion in particular he had said, God bless you, lads, be quiet; I don't want to hurt you, but you must not do this way. They had neglected this advice, and were ordered to pay expenses. ADWALTON. [DALTON] SERIOUS CHARGE OF AsSAULT.-At [Assault.-At] the Guildhall, Fiud- [Find- Huddersfield] dersfield, [Huddersfield] on Saturday last, Winterbottom, charged Thomas Taylor with committing upon him a gross assault. The case was tried before the sitting magis- [magic- magistrates] trates, [rates] and it appeared that the offence had been com- [committed] mitted [fitted] under the following circumstances -On Monday morning, the 28th July, Winterbottom was passing the house of Ann Firth, at Adwalton-bank, [Dalton-bank] when Taylor rushed out with a poker in his hand, and inflicted seve- [see- several] ral [al] severe blows upon the complainant, whose injuries in consequence were so great that he had been unable to follow his business, and was then suffering from lameness and other bruises. From the evidence it was educed that some slight provocation had been given, but in no degree to warrant so gross an outrage. Witnesses were called on both sides, and there was not the slightest doubt of a most cruel assault having been committed. Fined 20s., with 20s. for the complainant, and other costs. SCAMMONDEN. RosBBERY.-Mr. [Robbery.-Mr] Superintendent Heaton appeared at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Thursday last, to make appli- [apply- application] cation to the sitting magistrates, for the remand of James Balm'orth [Balm'North] and Thomas Pearson, in custody on a charge of robbery. Information had been given that a person named Benjamin Garside had been robbed, on Tuesday night last, of a five shilling piece, two half-crowns, and five shillings, one of which was marked. He had been in the company of Balmforth ahd [had] Pearson, and subsequently found himself minus the sum mentioned. The marked shilling was found in the possession of the landlord of a beerhouse, [beer house] where Balmforth and Pearson had been drinking, and which the landlord swore he had taken from the prisoners. Sum- [Summons] Mmonses [Sermons] had been taken out for witnesses, and Balmforth and Pearson were accordingly remanded to this day (Saturday.) PRICE OF SHARES. FRIDAY, AUGUST 9.

So THE ALLEGED CHARGES AGAINST THE POLICE FORCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE. Srr,-I [Sir,-I] was much surprised to see in your paper of last Saturday, in the report of the Watch Committee to the Huddersfield Improvement Commissioners, that at the meeting of the Watch Committee for the purpose of going into the charge against your police of inflt- [inflict- influencing] encing [ending] suitors to employ one professional man in magis- [magic- magisterial] terial [trial] business, I requested the charge not to be pre- [proceeded] ceeded [needed] with. In justice to myself and the professional gentlemen who signed the memorial to the Commis- [Comms- Commissioners] sioners [sinners] upon such charge, I must deny this most em- [emphatically] phatically. [emphatically] I was requested to produce proof before the committee, and attended with two letters which I send you, but the Chairman stated, that even if the let- [letters] ters [tees] were read they would only come to the same reso- [rose- resolution] lution [Lotion] which they would if they were not, and he thought it better they should not be read, Mr. Sutcliffe con- [concurred] curred [cured] in this. The Chairman also remarked, that if the police had so used their influence, they had done so not thinking they were doing wrong, as there was no bye-law against it (such conduct never having been con- [contemplated] templated), but a resolution should be passed conder [confer confer] natory [nature] of such practices. Upon this I said if such was their wish I would not read the letters, and left, fully understanding that such a resolution would be passed ; but that I requested that the charge should not be further proceeded with is a misapprehension. I merely withdrew the letters at the suggestion of the Chairman and Mr. Sutcliffe. Again, the report states that Mr. Freeman attended the meeting on the assumption that he was the gentleman referred to in the memorial, and on being assured he was not the gentleman he retired. This is also a misappreher- [disappeared- misapprehension] sion; Mr. Freeman attended, as he stated, to answer any charge brought against him on bemg [beg] informed no such thing was ever contemplated he went away. As, from your report, the public will think a charge has been made falsely, I herewith send the letters which I produced before the committee, and which were not read, for the reason above stated. Apologizing for the trouble I have thus given you, I am, Sir, yours obediently, WM. DRANSFIELD. King-street, Huddersfield, August, 9th, 1850. To the Watch Committee of the Huddersfield Improvement Commissioners. When I attended the magistrates' office against John Davis, who robbed our shop a few weeks ago, I was told by Townend, the policeman (Thomas being present), that Mr. Freeman had five of their cases for Bradford, and that no other attorney would like to take oxe, [one] and he recommended me at the same time to employ him. ROBERT APPLETON, King-street, July 22, 1850. To the Watch Committee of the Huddersfield Inprovement [Improvement] Commissioners. The way Mr. Freeman was employed by my father, to prosecute Ormrod was, Thomas and Townend came to our house, and after asking my father if he was particular what attorney was employed, and him answering No, they said they would tind [tins] him one, and then they accordingly employed Mr. Freeman.

THe [The] Harvest.-The harvest in Bedfordshire and the adjoining counties has commenced, the weather as favour- [favourable] able as can be wished for, and the crops, particularly of wheat and barley, are most abundant. Several fields of wheat are estimated at six, and barley at seven to eight quarters per acre, which showeth [shower] the goodness of an all- [all wise] wise Providence, and frustrates the nefarious actions of designing men, who have of late attempted, by false alarm, to lessen the bounties of creation, to gratify a covetous and impure motive.-Suz. [motive.-Su] LonDON [London] AND NorTH-WESTERN [North-WESTERN] RalLway.-This [Railway.-This] com- [company] pany [any] are carrying out some extensive experiments in the way of a reduction of fares, with the view of testing the productiveness of the local traffic. Hitherto the price of day tickets, for certain distances, has been two-thirds less than two fares, a further reduction upon which, to the ex- [extent] tent of one-sixth, has been made. PASSENGER TRAFFIC ON THE GREAT NORTHERN LINE.- [LINE] The passenger traffic on this line commenced on Tuesday morning, from the London Station, Maiden-lane, King's- cross, and the event drew together large crowds of specta- [spectacle- spectators] tors. Large numbers mace the trip to Peterborough-a distance of seventy-six miles-which was accomplished by the fast trains in two hours and half. THE MCNMOUTHSHIRE [MONMOUTHSHIRE] MuRDER.-At [Murder.-At] the Monmouth assizes, on Wednesday, before Lord Campbell, two Irish- [Irishmen] men named Maurice Murphy and Patrick Sullivan, were found guilty of having murdered an old woman on the high road on the 3rd of April last. The deceased was a poor old woman of 61, and had been to Newport to receive her parish pay, but being mistaken by the prisoners for a woman who had been to Newport to sell a cow, they brutally waylaid and murdered her, and then concealed the body in a wood near the road. Both prisoners were left for execution, with no hope of a commutation of their sentence. Lord Clarendon will return to Dublin, from London, on Monday evening next. The last accounts from Ireland announce that the potato disease had positively made its appearrnce [appearance] in King's County, and had been spreading rapidly within the last few days.
