We under- [understand] stand that the engraving has been made from the sketches of W. Cowen, Esq., who, as artist and author, i favourably known in this locality. Looking from the point above indicated the view embraces Huddersfield at a glance, and, though personally but imperfectly acquainted with the locale of the town, we had no difficulty in thread- [threading] ing our way from point to point on the engraving, which Mr. Cowen has submitted to' our inspection. We learn that this local effort in art. is published at an exceedingly cheap rate, and make no doubt that meny [men] of our teaders [readers] will secure for themselves a copy at an early opportunity. At the Guildhall, on Tuesday, a new highway rate of 10d. im [in] the pound was granted for the Thurstonland town- [township] ship. A similar rate was also granted for Lepton. The arrears in the latter case were 2 13s. Od. SHOPIMFTING [SHAFTING] BY a FEMALE.-On Tuesday aftemoon, [afternoon] a woman from Holmfirth, named Ruth Crosland, went into the shop of Mr. Rogers, linen draper, in the Market-place, accompanied by her husband, and requested to be shown some handkerchiefs. She urchased [purchased] one of the handker- [handle- handkerchiefs] chiefs shown to her, and while the shopman, Mr. Bowell, was adjusting the articles from which she had made a selec. [select] tion, [ion] Ruth suécéeded [succeeded] in taking a dress from the counter which she concealed under her shawl. As she was about to leave the shop Mr. Bowell followed and called her back, and while she was following him up the shop again, he saw (by means of a looking glass), Ruth take the Tess from under her arm, and attempt to throw it onone [one] side, but before she could do so he charged her with the theft. The prisoner acknowledged the offence, and begged to be set at liberty as that was the first time. She was given into the custody of Townend, the officer, and on Thursday the above facts having been deposed to before Joseph Starkey, Esq., the prisoner was committed to the sessions, her only remark being you must be as merciful as you can. BUILDING AND INVESTMENT SocteTy.-A [Society.-A] conversational meeting tor the purpose of expiaining [explaining] the objects and rutes [rites] of the above society was held in the Philosophical Hall, in this town, on Thursday evening last. Messrs. John Kershaw, the manager, James Phillips, the surveyor, both of Leeds, and Mr. John Wild, agent for Huddersfield, took part m [in] the p i The meeting was réspectable [respectable] but not numeroas. [numerous] THE WoONDERFUE [Wonderful] VENTRILOQUST, [VENTRILOQUIST] HERR ROSENFELD. -It is not to be wondered at that so great a number of ind are believers in the supernatural tales which novelists depict. It would be strange indeed were it not so, for those who have witnessed the feats of agility and natural magic executed 'under their very optics, by Herr Rosenfeld, without being able to deteet [detect] the illusion, may well believe in the supernatural, however extravagantly told. We felicitate the professor on living in times when the most extraordinary events are tolerated at all events we may safely assure him that he would have paid the pena'ty [pen'ty] of his exploits én the gallows had he played off his wonderful illusions a century and a half ago in the same ublic [public] manner as we witnessed in the Philosophical Hall, List evening. But the world gets more tolerant as it pro- [progresses] gresses, [dresses] and we may safely assure our friends that in case they pay the wizard a visit in the coming week they will at least have a fund of amusement, innocent in its character, provided for them, mixed with a ready fund of pleasaniry, [pleasant] in which Herr Rosenfeld is as great an adept as in his feats of natural magic. TESTIMONIAL OF ESTEEM. Our apology for giving a summary of the following interesting event arises mainly from the circumstance of one of our local artists being a party prominently connecte [connected] therewith and also from the fact that Mr. M'Laren [M'Learn] is related to, and known among, some of our fellow-townsmen.-On the evening of Friday, the 26th ult. a dinner took place at the Sussex Stores Ta- [Tavern] vern, [ven] Upper St. Martin's Lane, Long-acre, London, which was made the medium through which a very admirably- [admirably executed] executed portrait of Mr. M'Laren, [M'Learn] the surveyor and valuer of Messrs. Meux [Mex] establishment, was presented to that gen- [gentleman] tleman, [gentleman] as a testimonial of the respect and esteem enter- [entertained] tained [gained] for him by a large number of friends. painting in question, says the Morning Advertiser, 'represents Mr. M'Laren [M'Learn] sitting in his usual chair, at his table, with papers, &c. strewed upon it. The likeness is a most strik- [strike- striking] ing one,-the attitude very casy [case] and characteristic, and altogether the portrait was well deserving of the encomiums bestowed upon it by the company. The portrait was painted by Mr. S. Howell, a gentleman well known in uddersfield, [Huddersfield] and whose portraits of our loca [local] gentry have earned for him a deserving mede [made] of commendation in this branch of art.-The chairman, in an eulogistic speech, pre- [presented] sented [scented] Mr. M'Laren [M'Learn] with the portrait, in the name of the testimonial committee, which bore the following inscrip- [in scrip- inscription] tion [ion] This portrait of John Alexander M'Laren [M'Learn] was pre- [presented] sented [scented] to his y by his numerous friends, as a testimo- [testimony- testimonial] nial [nail] of the esteem they entertain of his character, and as a slight tribute to his private worth.-April 24th, [the] 1850. [W. - Mr. M'Laren, [M'Learn] who seemed much affected by the kind feel- [feeling] ing displayed towards him, acknowledged the toast and token of esteem presented in a brief but emphatic speech, assuring those gentlemen who had been instrumental in presenting him with the testimonial, that he should cherish it as one of his choicest family relics.- [relics] After several other toasts had been given from the chair and responded to, Mr. Howe pro' in complimentary terms, the health of Mr. Howell, the artist, whose painting, he observed, was a valuable test of his ability,-for it was not only an excellent likeness of their worthy guest, but was also an admirable picture. (Hear, hear.)- [hear] Mr. Howell, in expressing his acknowledgments, said it was gratifying to find that his efforts had given satisfaction to the gentlemen present, and the satisfaction was the greater, seeing that the subject of his study was his father-in-law, for whom, in common with all who knew him, he entertained the most sincere respect, -Mr. J. T. Wigney, [Wine] of Huddersfield, haVing [having] prop the health of the testimonial committee, and several other toasts having been given and responded to, the interesting proceedings terminated. m [in] REFRACTORY PauPpeR.-The [Upper.-The] workhouse master, Mr. Berry, a before J. Armitage, Esq., on Saturday last, at the Guildhall, and prefe [Pref] a charge against an able-bodied pauper, named John Tewlis, [Thewlis] of frequently being drunk and disorderly in the workhouse, and when in that state using very indecent langu [lang] In answer to questions from the Bench, Berty [Berry] stated that the pauper had once before been sent to the House of Correction for a similar offence that he had been in the workhouse nearly twelve months, and came in originally by being disabled wom [whom] following his employment by having his thigh broken. The Bench recommended Mr. Berry to take Tewlis [Thewlis] before the Board of Guardians at their next meeting, and get their advice in the case, as he thought it very wrong that the ratepayers should be saddled with the maintenance of such an idle profligate as he appeared to be. The one was then adjourned for a fortnight, in order that- [that the] the opinion of the Guardians as to his being turned out of the workhouse might in the meantime be ascertained. .- - CaUTIon [Caution] To CaRTERS.-An [Carter.-An] old man, named Thomas Furniss, was summontd [summoned] before the sitting magistrate, on Saturday last, charged with riding in his cart, without having reins, between Huddersfield and Lockwood. Fur- [Furniss] niss [Miss] stated, in defence, that he was taken very ill, and was obliged to get into his cart in order to reach home. He was cautioned, and required to pay the expenses, whit. amounted to ts AG. . 5 Sux [Six] tion [ion] To Bdys [Boys] PLayInc [Playing] IN THE STREETS ON SUN- [Sunday] paYa [pay] Six boys were brought up, on Saturday last, before J. Armitage, Ksq., [KS] at the Guildhall, in this town, by Super- [Superintendent] intendent [intended] Thomas, charged with playing at pig and other games in Albion-street, on the previous Sunday. The officer stated that this street had become notorious as a place of resort for boys on Sunday afternoons and evenings, to the great annoyance of the inhabitants of that part Ts the town, and complaints had frequently been made to hin [in] in uence. [fence] The worthy magistrate severely repri- [repair- reprimanded] manded [Madden] the defendants, and on their promising not to be found at the same games again on a Sunday, they were discharged on paying the expenses. . GAMBLING ON THE SaBsaTH.-On [Sabbath.-On] Saturday last, at the Guildhall, Jonas Green, was charged by Superintendent Thomas with playing at 'pitch and toss, on Sunday the 28th ult., between 11 and 12 o'clock in the forenoon. The officer informed the bench that Sunday gambling was carried on at present to such an extent in the outskirts of the town, and the arrangements of the parties thus offending were so complete that he was obliged to send out two or three policemen every Sunday in plain clothes in order to check this vicious practice.. The offence was admitted by the young man, upon which he was severely admonished, and required to pay the expenses amounting to 10s.-Three [1st.-Three] young boys, two named Thompson, and 'one Hoyle,- [Hoyle] were charged with a similar oftence [offence] at Bradley-mill. The lads admitted the charge, but in extenuation it was urged that two of them, the Thompsons, [Thompson] were apprentices, and required by their masters to attend divine service on Sun- [Sundays] days, at which they had been in the morning, but unfortu- [unfortunate- unfortunately] nately [lately] their master being from.home in the afternoon, they stayed away from chapel, and in rambling across the fields saw some men playing at 'pitch and toss. When they got into a field by 'themselves they thought they would try too, when.théy [when.the] were caught by the fs man. Hoyle's mother also attended and stated that she was a widow, and had never known her boy guilty of anything of the sort be- [before] fore. The boys each promised not again, when they were discharged on payment of the expenses, amounting to 5s. each, HUDDERSFIELD ASSOCIATION FOR IMPROVING THE BREED OF Pics aND [and] PovuLtry.--Last [Poultry.--Last] Saturday, the annual meeting of the members of this association was held at the George Hotel. There was only a comparatively small attendance; several of the leading members-in- [including] cluding [including] the worthy president, B. N. R. Batty, Esq.,- [Esq] all the vice-presidents, and the honorary secretary being absent. It was, therefore, thought advisable to adjourn the meeting. We are, however, enabled to state that, as well amongst the members present as those absent, it appears to be the unanimous wish that Mr. Batty should continue his office of president, the duties of which he so ably filled during the last year. Mr. Floyd's pro- [professional] fessional [professional] engagements not admitting of his retaining the office of secretary-the duties of which it must be well own are exceedingly onorous-the [onerous-the] vacancy, we under- [understand] stand, wit be filled by Mr. Frederick Turner, to whom the Society was greatly indebted for his exertions last year. Mr. Wigtiey, [Weighed] it is expected, will continue the office of treasurer. the present highly influential list of vice- [presidents] presidents we are informed Joseph Starkey, Esq., has consented to allow his name to be addel. [added] Other names we have also heard mentioned, which it may be premature to announce. A strong committee is in course of organiza- [organs- organization] tion [ion] and there seems no fear of the show this year ex- [exceeding] ceeding [feeding] the last. Pig and poultry fanciers are quite on the qu vice, and training has already begun for the great day. At present the Annual Show stands fixed for the first week in August, but it is not imprebable [improbable] a little alteration may be made in this arrangement. YouTurut [futurity] Drunkarps.-At [Drunkards.-At] the Huddersfield Guild- [Guildhall] hall, on Tuesday, before W. W. Battye, Esq., two youths, who each appeared under eighteen years of age, named Walter Eastwood and Thomas Oldroyd, were charged with being drunk and almost helpless in the public streets. Both defendants unblushingly acknowledged that they were ill drunk, but, on promising that they would refrain from such disgraceful habits in future, they were set at liberty on paying a fine of 1s. and expenses. THE Late Mr. UNPUBLISHED AND BioGRaPHy.-Mr. [Biography.-Mr] Wordsworth has lefs [Lees] a peem [seem] con- [consisting] sisting [sitting] of fourteen cantos, descriptive of his life, reflections, and opinions, with directions t it should be published after his decease, together with such biographical notices as may be requisite to illustrate his writings, under the edi- [ed- editorial] torial [trial] care of his nephew, the Rev, Christopher worth, D.D., Canon of Westminster, whom he has ap- [appointed] pointed his literary executor, so far as his biographical memoir is concerned, with an expression of a desire that his family, executors, and friends would furnish his biogra- [biog- biographer] pher [her] with sueh [such] materials as may be useful for his assistance in the preparation of the work. It is a remarkable and touching coincidence that Wordsworth died, not only on Shakspere's [Shakespeare's] birth-day, but also on fhe [he] day of his death, Shakspere [Shakespeare] having died on his fifty-third birthday, 1616.- [W] Post. . SHEFFIELD. Distresstnc [Distress] Case OF SvuiciDE. [Suicide] On Thursday morning week. Mr. Alfred Rateliffe, [Radcliffe] aged 26, a clerk in the brewery of Messrs. Rawson and Co., im [in] which firm the Mayor is principal partner, committed suicide by taking prussic acid. From the evidenée [evidence] adduced at the inquest it appears that the deceased had been detected in purloining various sums ef money received by him for barm [bar] sold at the brewery, and that he had been discharged from his situation in consequence. No prosecution, however, had been commenced against him, nor was any intended. On the other hand assurance had been given the deceased that the affair would not be made public. But his depres- [pres- depression] sion was so great that life became an insupportable burden, and under the effect of his deep wretch dness, [dress] the unfor- [unfair- unfortunate] tunate [tuna] man purchased a quantity of prussic acid, by means of which he terminated his carthly [earthly] existence. After hear- [hearing] ing various witnesses, the Coroner summed up, and the jury found a verdict- That the deeeased [deceased] had died from taking prussié [Prussia] acid while labouring under temporary in- [insanity] sanity.' THE BENTLEY CHARITY. We last week brietiy [Brett] adverted to the gratifying fact that RosBerT [Robert] BENTLEY, EsqQ., [Esq] of Rotherham, had paid over to certain Trustees the munificient [magnificent] sum of 1500. to be by them invested for the benefit of the poor of the township of Lockwood and the Huddersfield Infismary, [Infirmary] Since then we have had an opportunity of correctly as certaining [retaining] the nature of the gift in question. The Trustees appointed by Deed are the twelve following gentlemen, namely - Messrs George Crosland Mallinson Abbey Bentley Shaw James Woodhouse Spivey Godfrey Berry, sen. Samuel Ogden John Shaw, of thefirm [the firm] of J.,W. Henry Brown . and H. Shaw Robert Robinson, and James Crosland Fenton Timothy Tate Pearson Crosland . All resident in the township of Lockwood. A meeting of the Trustees was convened for yesterday evening week, at the Red Lion Inn, Lockwood, by Mr, Floyd, who attended on behalf of Mr. Bentley. All the Trustees, with the exception of Mr. Berry, who happened to be in London, were present, and executed the Deed. The Trust Deed recites,- [recites] ss -- . . That Mr. Bentley, being connected by family and by property with the township of Lockwood, is mindful and desirous of promoting the welfare of the deserving poor of the said township and in order to secure that object, hath given and paid over to the Trustees above-named the sum of 1000, to be invested for the benefit of the said poor in manner hereinafter mentioned and hath also paid over to the said Trustees the further sum of 500. to be invested for the benefit of the Huddersfield and Upper Agbrigg Infirmary, in the district whereof the township of Lockwood is situate, in manner hereinafter mentioned. We briefly extract the following from the Trusts - The trustees are to invest the two sums on good secu- [sec- security] rity. [city] They are yearly to pay the interest, dividends, or annual produce arising from the sum of 1,000 unto and equally amongst six poor persons (male or female), having a settlement in, and being householders for the time bate within the township of ockwoed [Lockwood] aforesaid, and who shi [si] not have received parochial relief within twelve calendar ing the ective [active] annual ments, [rents] ato, [to] ne of the said dividends, ke which shall arise from the said principal sam of 1,000, whom the said trustees for the time being in their discretion shall think fit and proper objects for the same, and without regard in the selection being had to religious creeds or opinions, The trustees are further to pay the interest and dividen [dividend] arising from the 500 to the treasurer for the time being of the Huddersfield and Upper Agbrigg Infirmary, in aid of the funds of that institution, for which the receipt of the treasurer shall be a sufficient discharge, -- The trust is to be hereafter known or distinguished by the name of The Bentley Charity. ' The costs and expenses incident to preparing and earry- [Barry- carrying] ing out the trusts are to be defrayed out of the interest of the two sums, in proper proportions, before the same is to become divisible for the purposes of the trust The trust funds are to be paid and distributed on the 21st of December (St. Thomas's day) in every year; but when that shall happen to fall on a Sunday, then on the day following. Trustees, as they shall die, or refuse to act, or be desirous of being discharged, or shall go t6 reside abroad, are to be replaced at the following annual day such of the inhabi- [inhabit- inhabitants] tants [ants] of the township of Lockwood as may be qualified to vote in the election of a member or members of parliament, -in publie [public] meeting assembled, by a majority thereof, after seven days' notice, are to appoint trustees to supply the vacancies occurring, in order that the full number of twelve trustees may always be kept up. ae Whenever the number of original trustees shall be re- [reduced] duced [duce] to four, a new trust-deed is to be executed ' .The usual clause is added, indemnifying the acting The deed, it will be observed, contains some salutary provisions, especially those relating to the selection of objects of the charity and the appointment of fresh trustees. The former prevents a class system Being adopted, t6o [to] often the bane of charities of this kind, where the poor may happen conscientiously to différ [differ] from the administrators of the charity in their religious views, and who have had to suffer in consequetice, [consequence] The Churchman and ' Dissenter,; however, is here made equally eligible as a recipient of the bounty; the only condition being, that they sliall [skill] be deberving [deserving] poor. The election of trustees by the inhabitants will effectually prevent the evils of self-elected bodies and exclusiveness being introduced iutd [out] this charity,'and qo operate as. a check to anything that ig not fair, open, and above board. This is the best security THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, MAY 11, 1860. SS 5 the inhabitants could have that the worthy donor's object will never be defeated, and that that confidence will be permanently secured in the administration of the funds which the wise and judicious selection of the 'twelve first- [first appointed] appointed trustees is sure to create. It is not the least gratifying part of the business that twelve such men, amongst whom are many honoured names, should have been sclected, [selected] and who are free, able, and willing to serve the office.. At the meeting referred to, George Crosland, Esq., of Crosland Lodge, was unanimously elected president of the charity, Bentley Shaw, Esq., of Woodfield House, nephew of the worthy donor, treasurer, and Mallinson Abbey, Esq of Lockwood, secretary. The treasurer announced, that he had received the 1500. during the week, and that it was desirable it should be in vested as early, and at as good a rate of interest as possi- [poss- possible] ble. [be] The trustees unanimously requested him to retain the amount in his hands, claiming the usual bank interest, from the first of May, until investments could be found, and a committee, consisting of the president, treasurer, and secretary, with Messrs. Fenton, John Shaw, and Ogden, was appointed, to look out for and obtain such investments, and to attend generally to the interests of the charity until the next meeting of the trustees. T. P. Crosland, Esq., then, in a few brief, but feeling and complimentary remarks, moved a vote of thanks to Robert Bentley, Esq., for the liberal and considerate present made to the township of Lockwood, and expressed a hope that the highly respected benefactor might long live te witness the beneficial results of his munificence, and that Mr. Floyd be requested te convey the sentiments of the trustees to Mr. Bentley. J, C. Fenton, Esq., seconded the motion, which we hardly need say, was carried, not only unani- [Union- unanimously] mously, [Mosley] but with great cordiality, The meeting was adjourned to Friday, the Ist [Its] of No- [November] vember. [member] We have been much concerned to learn that Mr. Bent ley [le] has for some weeks past been very unwell, and ef late confined to his room. Our last intelligence states, that he was much the same as for some days previous, and not yet considered out of danger. He has our sympathy in his affliction, and best wishes for his speedy recovery. We unfeignedly [unfriendly] hope, adopting the tone of Mr. T. P. Crosland's resolution, that he may long live to witness the benefit that his munificent gift will confer on the poor of Lockwood, and realize fully, in his own mind, and especially now, as a solace under the af. flicting [inflicting] hand cf Providence, that beautiful scripture truth, Blessed is he that considereth [considered] the poor. Mr. Bentley has been disposed to do good in his life-time, and to let the poor partake of his abundance. To the wealthy and benevolent we say, Go and do likewise. ' NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS, ---- --- . ENocH [Enoch] SYKES.-His letter would have been inserted had he confined himself to the facts of the case, and refrained from personal allusion. Our aim in these discussions is to promote some public benefit, and on these grounds we weekly sacrifice a portion of our space, which might be more advantageously employed were we actuated by pecuniary considerations alone. The public interest can- [cannot] not, however, be consulted in the personal encounters of Enoch Sykes and Cellar Dweller, and in accord- [accordance] ance, [once] therefore, with those principles we have already laid down-not to admit of mere personal attacks-the letter of Enoch Sykes is excluded. THE Gas QUESTION.-Querist [QUESTION.-Queries] is wrong. The official he names is zot [not] thé [the] author or writer of the articles on the gas question in our pages. Those articles are from the pen of the regular contributors to the Chronicle-the material and facts for them being supplied by old inhabi- [inhabit- inhabitants] tants [ants] of the town.
