THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SAURDAY, [SATURDAY] OCTOBER 12, 1850. Foreign Entelligence. [Intelligence] FRANCE. scle, [sale] the National i ig journals ely, the Si the National, eo Conds [Bonds] Nationale, [National] the Gazette de Prance, and the Evenement, [Government] are already under prosecu- [pros ecu- prosecution] tion [ion] for contraventions of the law relative to the of articles. . Public opinion has, through error, says the Moniteur, [Monitor] gccupied occupied] itself with the realization of the 2,000,000 rentes [rents] belonging to the savings-bank. The position -of the Treasury, and the improved financial position of the Government, permit it to proceed without ing itself of the authorization granted to the Minister of Finance by the law of the 18th of May 1850. [W] The director of the journal Le Peuple, [People] and M. Favre, one of the editors, were sentenced, on Monday, by the Assize Court of Paris, to three years imprisonment each -aud [and] 6,000 francs fine, the one for signing and the other for publishing an article exciting the citizens to hatred and contempt of each other, outraging public morals -and religion, and exciting to civil war. The affair of the seven journals prosecuted for infrac- [Africa- inflicting] dion [don] of the law requiring the signature of the authors of articles, came on before the Court of Correctional Police, on Wednesday, for which the summons had been issued. The preliminary question of competency was fully and ably argued by the counsel for the defence. Notwith- [Not with- Notwithstanding] standing all anticipations to the contrary, the court declared that it was competent. This question being -decided, Friday next was named by the court to try the merits of the casc. [case] In the meantime the journals were sentenced to pay the costs. Paris, WEDNESDAY.-It appears that a confidential agent of the Court of Chambord [Chamber] has arrived he e for the purpose, it is said, of impressing upon the friends of the Prince the desirability of their having seats in the Assembly, as well as the necessity of the strictest union. He has already had an interview with General St Priest, and it is understood that he conveyed the thanks of his royal master to that gentleman for his letter in M. Barthélemy's [Bartholomew's] circular. It is said that he expressed himsesf [himself] opposed to any prolongation of the powers of the President, and wishes to impress the same views upon the members of his party. It is added that the person in question is favour- [favourable] able to the fusion of the branches of the Bourbon family, a result which he seems to think not far distant. The same epinion [opinion] is held in other quarters. UNITED STATES. By the steam-ship Asia, Captain Judkins, [Judging] which arrived in the Mersey at midnight on Saturday, we have advices [advice] from New York to the 25th. [the] The Asia, on this occasion, for the first time in the history of the Cunard service, steamed to Liverpool -direct from New York, abandoning the usual detour to and call at Halifax en route, accomplishing her passage m consequence in ten days seven hours, being the shortest period on record. She brought eighty-six passengers, 51,500 in specie, the usual New York mails, and a fair freight. Washington advices [advice] add little of moment to our previous intelligence. Several measures had received the sanction of cither [either] chamber; the senate having approved the bill authorising the payment of the indemnity due to Mexico; and the house the bill granting power to the secretary of the treasury to permit vessels from the British provinces to load and unload in ports of the United States provided similar privileges were granted to to vessels of the United States. Several new attempts had been made in the lower house to procure a vote to iter iver] the tariff; but in every instance they had signally failed; and as on the 30th congress would adjourn, the question may now be considered decided for some time to come. Legislation was proceeding rapidly. Colonel Fremont's bill to regulate the gold regions was before the senate, and had been debated at great length. Various amendments were offered and adopted. As the bill now stands, permits to work the mines are to be , granted to persons from Europe who have declared their 'intention to become citizens of the United States, and who can produce certificates of good character. By an amendment offered by Colonel Fremont, 5 per cent of the net proceeds arising from the sale of permits is to be paid to California, to aid that state in constructing roads and canals. It was expected that the African steam line would meet with an ap- [approval] proval, [approval] The House of Representatives had refused to adopt a resolution from the judiciary committee, au- [authorising] thorising [authorising] the president to institute a prosecution against ' M. Crawford, late secretary of war, for the Galphin [Dolphin] affair. Late advices [advice] from Texas state, that Governor Bell had vetoed the bill which passed the legislature requiring him to submit to the popular vote of the people the proposition from the United States respect- [respecting] .Ing the purchase of territory. The veto was sustained by the house, and the bill was lost. The governor has iikewise [likewise] vetved [voted] the bill calling for an extra session of the legislature. The legislature adjourned on the 6th 'nit. A proclamation had been issued by the Governor of Georgia calling a convention to resist the progressing abolition of slavery. Our miscellaneous accounts are of little interest. Boston reports of the 24th announce the failure of Mr. [C] Barker, a large wholesale dry-goods dealer. The San Francisco journals report that there exists good ground for the report that a veritable gold mountain had been Several launches of steam-ships, &c., had occurred. Amongst others were the Pacific, of 1,100 tons, for the California trades launched at New York; the ship Torwada Towards] for Cope's Philadelphia and Liverpool line of packei-ships. [packed-ships] The New York Express states, that the mechanics and brewers of the city had resolved to present a silver fagon [wagon] to Messrs. Barclay and Perkins' draymen. [drawn] DEFEAT OF THE HOLSTEIN ATTACK ON FREDERICHSTADT. [FREDERICTON] Hampunrcu, [Cunningham] Oct. 6. After preliminary operations of five days (from the 29th of September to the 3rd of October), which were directed to carrying or destroying the outworks before the town to the east, it was thought that these objects were so far effected that a storm of the place might be attempted. The cannonade against the town was con- [continued] tinued [continued] throughout the day of the 4th, principally on the houses on the outer border of the place, which the Danes had converted into defences of considerable 'strength. At half-past 5 o'clock it was considered all was ready for the attack, and the troops forming the storming parties were ordered to advance. They did so in three columns, one by the chaussee [chase] that crosses the marshy level from the town to Seeth, [South] a second along 'the Treene-dyke, [Tree-dyke] and the third by the Eyder-dyke. [Elder-dyke] It was the battalion (the 6th) which took the last named road that met the severest loss. On all three points the -attack failed. The belief that all the obstacles had been removed by the previous cannonade turned out to have been too hastily formed. The troops encountered more difficulties than were expected, and the movements were attended by a series of disasters added to this, the Danes, who during the previous days had replied to the Holstein cannonade very slackly, and as if they were short of ammunition, opened against the storming -eelumns [columns] on the whole line of defence such a murderous Gre [Re] of cannon and musketry that nothing could stand against it; the column formed of the 6th battalion, hough it continued to advance with great bravery, was thrown into confusion and driven back with immense doss. A second attack, made by the 15th battalion, was attended by the same result, its ammunition waggon was blown up by a shell, and the column scattered and driven in; the battalion that was to have supported it could not, as the storming-bridge over a wide ditch cutting the chaussee [chase] from the Blockhouse broke in and could not be reconstructed. The Holstein artillery kept up a cannonade on the town during the whole attack and after the repulse, but with no result save that of setting the town on fire at several points. At midnight the cannonade ceased, and tiie [tie] troops took up the same positions they had held during the last five days. General Willisen [Wilson] gives his loss in this engagement at 'from 200 to 300 killed and wounded, though the un- [unofficial] official accounts give a much higher estimate of the loss. They bring it up to 400, and from the number of men engaged, the character of the terrain, and the deter- [determination] mination [nomination] of the defence, military authorities state that it may be safely rated at from 600 to 700 men during the whole operations. SmvGULAR [Singular] ACCIDENT To LorpD [Lord] Girrorp.-Lord [Group.-Lord] Gifford has recently been hunting with the Herefordshire hounds, and in endeavouring to unearth a fox he was assailed by hundreds of hornets who stung him so severely that he fainted away. It was reported that he was dead, but this is not true. The pain was intense for a while, but his lord- [lordship] ship has quite recovered. Lorp [Lord] BRoUGHAM [Brougham] AND THE SoLway [Slowly] Act.-Penrirn, [Act.-Pension] Tuesday, October 8.-The illegal netting transaction which took place on the 16th ult., at Nine Kirk Holme, in the 'river and which created so much interest and ex- [excitement] 'citement, [cement] was this day brought to a final termination, so far as the magistrates are concerned. It will be remem- [rem- remembered] bered [breed] that on the investigation of the affair at the Petty Sessions held at Penrith on the 24th ult., five informations [information] (amongst others under different acts of parliament) under the Solway Act were preferred against Lord Brougham's party for using an illegal net in the river Eamont, and that one of them, according to an arrangement between the parties, was only investigated, and that the magistrates took time to consider the evidence and to give their deci- [DEC- decision] sion, which, before a full bench of mnagistrates, [magistrates] was deli- [delivered] vered [vere] by the Rev. W. H. Milner, vicar of Penrith, at great length. The result was that Armstrong, one of Lord Brougham's party was fined 5 under the Solway Act. GEORGE.-On Wednesday, THE WRECK OF THE RoyaL [Royal] the 2nd ad opetober, [October] died near Berkeley, in county oucester, [Gloucester] Mr. Jame Ingram, proprietor and 33 rd of the Fox Inn, in that village. Mtr.

Vari- [Var- Various] ous [us] af vantages are set forth ag accruing terprise, [enterprise] which seems to be launched under usnices, [justices] from this new en- [every] very distinguished Frelanvd. [Ireland] Sir William Somerville, Bart., M.P., and his private secretary, Henry Meredyth, [Meredith] Esq., left Cratloe [Cattle] Woods on Thursday for Kilcornan, [Californian] county Galway, the residence of Sir T. N. Redington, [Remington] K.C.B. [C] His Excellency the Lord Lieutenant has subscribed 100 to a fund for assisting the traders and operatives of Dublin in their contributions to the Industrial Exhi- [Ex hi- Exhibition] bition [notion] of 1851. The price of butter in Cork and Limerick mar- [markets] kets [keys] has advanced so high as 83s. per Good news for the dairy farmers this, showing, too, that pasture in Ireland is more profitable than tillage. One butter ex- [export] port merchant in Limerick will clear 2,000 upon his present stock. . Conviction oF Crop Lirters.-At [Letters.-At] the Mallow sessions on Friday, before Mr. Walter Berwick, the Assistant Barrister, three men and two women, all of one family, named Hoare, were indicted fora riot on the 2nd of September last. Aftera [After] long charge from the Assistant Barrister, the jury returned a virdict [verdict] of Guilty against all the prisoners. Tue BisHopric [Bishopric] oF Very Rev. Dr. Townsend, who only a few months since was appointed to the Deanery of Waterford, with 1,200 a year, has been transferred to the above vacant Bishopric. Dr. Townsend was formerly a bitter opponent of the Govern- [Government] ment [men] Education Scheme, but has latterly changed his views, and is now one of its most strenuous supporters. THE MurDER [Murder] OF Mr. Norta.-The [North.-The] three Dalys, [Days] who were committed to Mullingar gaol for further examina- [examine- examination] tion [ion] charged with the murder of Mr. North, a magisirate, [magistrate] have been discharged from custody by order of the Executive. Despite all the exertions of the police and magisterial authorities, aided by the offer of large rewards by the Government and the family of the murdered gentleman, the whole affair is still shrouded in mystery. ATTEMPTED Murper.-A [Murder.-A] man of the name of Kirby while removing some corn from the lands of Gurtna- [Guardian- Botanical] killa, [villa] near Ulla, [Ill] on Sunday (week), was fired at by a keeper named Real. Three balls were lodged in the man's body. The act of the bailiff was unjustifiable. The wounded man has been attended, and his life hitherto preserved by the skilful treatment of Surgeon Ryan, of Dublin, and Surgeon Behan, of Tipperary.- [Tipperary] Limerick Examiner. Murper [Murder] In Down.-On Wednesday evening (week), a weaver, named M'Cormick, [M'Comic] who resided at Carmoss, [Cross] on the Hillsborough road, within a short distance of Ballynahinch, while sitting at his loom,, was shot.by a miscreant who had introduced the muzzle of his gun through an aperture made in the window pane. The bullet entered the heart of the poor victim, and after passing through his body, was lodged in the frame-work of the loom. The only cause that can be assigned for the murder is, that M'Cormick [M'Comic] had taken a small farm, and was care-taker for another, from which the previous tenants had been evicted. He had received several threatening letters during the last two months, calling upon him to give up possession, or take the consequen- [consequence- consequences] ces.- [ce] Belfast News-Letter. O'CoNNELL's [O'Colonel's] GRAVE.-A correspondent of the Cork Constitution, writing from Dublin, states that he has recently paid a visit to the Glasnevin [Glancing] burial ground, about a mile from Dublin, where the remains of the great Irish Agitator are deposited ina vault. From a conversation that took place between the correspondent of the Constitution and one of the officials of the ceme- [came- cemetery] tery [try] it would appear that O'Connell's body was brought from Genoa at the expense of the Glasnevin [Glancing] Burial Company, and that they now hold the body in pawn as security for the expenses thus incurred Mr. Maurice O'Connell has since the publication of the above written to the Timcs [Times] on the subject, and states that the above rumour has no foundation in fact, and there quietly allows the matter to rest. Mr. Swiru [Swore] O'Brien.-A letter has just been received from this gentleman, dated Darlington, Probation Station, Maria Island, Van Diemen's Land, Feb. 28, 1850, [W, addressed to 'My dear Potter, Cockspur-street, wherein he rings his usual changes of dissatisfaction at his self-imposed confinement, and on the magnanimity of British functionaries, as illustrated by my treatment in this island, spiced with charges of inhumanity and restriction which nearly terminated his career. In conclusion, after declining to recommend his wife and family to join him, he says- Considered as a prison, Maria Island is as little objectionable as any other spot that could be chosen. The scenery is very picturesque, and the local officers have been as kind as they could venture to be under the inhuman regulations laid down for their guidance by the Comptroller-General. I am therefore rather sorry to learn that this station will soon be broken up. Upon the abandonment of this station I shall probably be removed to Port Arthur-a change which will, I fear, be productive of neither benefit nor satisfaction to me. The Times of Tuesday in reference to this communication, indulges in a very severe leader on the obstinacy and perverseness of Mr. O'Brien, commencing A friend of Mr. Smith O'Brien has forwarded to us a letter just received from that petulent [patent] puppy, in which he maunders and moans in his usual strain about the disagreeableness of the position he has chosen for himself in Van Diemen's Land. The writer then proceeds to show that Mr. O Brien's present unpleasant position of survcillance [surveillance] is entirely self caused, and finally says Such perverseness as this is so much what we meet with in the youngest and most fractious inmates of a nursery, or in the worst subjects in the refractory ward of a union workhouse, and is so little what we meet with among full-grown gentlemen and ladies, that Mr. S. O'Brien does not even succeed in making anybody uncomfortable on his account. The public neither admires nor pities him, nor is it in the least distressed or disturbed on his account. It pre- [presumes] sumes [sums] that Mr. 8. O'Brien takes the course most agree- [agreeable] able to his feelings; and concludes, that if he were not allowed to play at the game of political martyr, he would be after some other equally foolish, and perbaps [perhaps] more injurious occupation. ---- THE REVENUE.-The returns of the quarter's revenue will be made up to Thursday next (last), the 10th of October. Notwithstanding the great reductions in the taxation, the public have been led from habit, to look for a considerable buoyancy in the public resources. From causes, however, which it is only necessary to point out simply, every person accustomed to look into these matters will not be surprised to learn that, in comparison with the quarter ending the 10th October, 1847, the present will show in figures a falling off ot little less than halfa [half] million. The difference, too, will be mainly observable, as indeed it generally is, in the great leading items of customs, excise, and stamps. The falling off in the customs will not be of great amount; in- [indeed] deed, not to an extent more than what is caused by the diminution of the import of brandy, which bears a scant proportion to the quantity imported in the autumn quarter of last year, which was, owing to the alarm about the cholera, unusually large. Our readers will recollect that, in the quarter ending October, 1849, the receipts of the customs were very materially sustained by the large impor- [import- importation] tation [station] of brandy, which, like in all periods of panic, was not only provided for present use, but for future emergency. There has also been, in the quarter just ended, very little corn importation, and the sugar duties yield less and less, as was expected, and intended. With these exceptions, the foreign trade continues in a most active and prosperous condition. The brick duties, repealed last session, yielded, when in operation, no less than half a million a year; and as bricks were manufactured in summer, and the greater part of the duty levied in this quarter, the repeal of this tax will, ofcourse, [of course] bestrongly [be strongly] felt in a comparison of the excise with the quarter of last year, when the brick duties were in full operation. The excise revenue for the quarter ending last year, with which the present is compared, was more than usually productive, and contrasted favourably with the quarters of October 1848 and 1847. Subtracting the repealed duty on bricks, the other items of the excise revenue yield more than an average receipt. The stamps will also show a decrease as compared with the unusually active quarter of last year, when trade had just recovered its previons [previous] depression, and when the dealers in stamps had been increasing their stocks for the purpose of availing themselves of the advantage of the expected drawback. This year, on the contrary, every one is waiting for the new and reduced scale of stamp duties which comes into operation this week. The other smaller items continue much the same, the income-tax and the post-office holding up their accustomed buoyancy. There is nothing in this state of things that has not been fully provided for and expected. The excise has already in some sort made up by other items for the total repeal of the brick duties, which were relaxed in the last session of parliament, and will, there is little doubt, still further tend to replace to some extent the reduction thus designedly made. The Chancellor of the Exchequer also stated his expectation of losing 300,000 a-year by his reductions in the stamp duties. A more than a proportionate amount of that re duction [Auction] has taken place in this quarter, however, from the cause we have indicated, namely, the holding back of so many for the reduction and regulation, which comes into force this week. The revenue will still continue greaily [greatly] in excess of the expenditure, the reductions in which are making themselves extensively felt more and more every day.-Obserucr. [day.-Observer] THE UNIVERSITY CoMMISSIONS.- [Commission.- Commission] The commission ep- [appointed] pointed by the government to enquire into the state, disci- [dis- discipline] pline, [line] and studies of the University of Oxford, will com- [commence] mence [fence] its sittings in London on Monday next. The com- [commissioners] missioners are-the Bishop of Norwich (Dr. Hinds), Dr. Tait, Dean of Carlisle; Dr. Jeune, [June] Master of Pembroke Coliege, [College] Oxford; Mr. Liddell, Head Master of Westminster School Professor Powell, of Oxford; Mr. Dampier, [Damper] bar- [barrister] rister; [sister] and Mr. G. H. S. Johnson, of Oxford. Many dis- [distinguished] tinguished [distinguished] members of the University will be examined by the commissioners, amongst others, the Right Hon. W. Gladstone, M.P., the Bishop of Oxford, Dr. Pusey, the Head Master of Rugby School (Dr. Goulburn), Mr. Roun- [Round- Roundell] dell Palmer, M.P., and the Bishop of Chichester. The Cambridge Commission has not yet fixed its day of sitting. -Times. ELECTICN [ELECTION] FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE.-A fter [after] much threatened opposition, which has ended in nothing but threats, Mr. Wigram was elected as member for the above university on Friday last, byunanimous [by unanimous] vote. The proceed- [proceedings] ings excited little interest, and are dismissed even by the Times in an ordinary paragraph. . THE CANTERBURY SETTLEMENT.-The fine ship Castle Eden, of 930 tons register, commanded by Captain Thorn- [Thornhill] hill, has sailed for New Zealand, okey [key] a large number of cabin ngers, [agers] among whom are Lord Man- [Mandeville] deville [Seville] and the Rev. Dr. Jackson (the Bishop designate of Port Lyttelton in the Canterbury Settlement) with his lady and family. This is the fifth ship chartered and despatched by the Canterbury Association, all of them full of passengers and District Wels. [Wells] SADDLEWORTH. Accrpent [Agreement] To A Raitway [Railway] Porter.-On Monday the 7th inst., Ellis Hannan, a porter at the Greenfield station of the London and North Western Railway, was en- [endeavouring] deavouring [endeavouring] to move the traverse table close to the top of a wall six or seven yards high, when the iron crow bar which he was using slipped, causing him to fall very awkwardly down the whole depth of the wall. He was immediately taken to the adjoining Inr, [In] where he now is. His sufferings are great and he is not expected to survive. A Founpiixe [Turnpikes] Wednesday evening week, a child about one month old, was found on the road side, a little below Wall-hill, and above Samewater. [Same water] The finder like a good Samaratan, [Samaritan] took pity on the help- [helpless] less creature, and carefully removed it from the road into the field, and then left it to its fate, lying on a rag of an Irishman's jacket. After that Messrs. Jerry and Gamliel [Gamaliel] Potefract, [Pontefract] of Samewater [Same water] mill, found the child, and it was ultimately conveyed to the workhouse of Runninghill, [Running] where it now is. It was long before any house was opened for its reception, a notion being very prevalent that whoever admitted it into his house first, would be bound to keep it. The child isa very fine one. Deatu [Death] FRoM [From] Excessive Datnkinc.-On [Drinking.-On] Tuesday last, an inquest was held on the body of Joseph Wrigley, of Ridge. For several weeks the deceased had been drink- [drinking] ing without any intermission, and in that time he had scarcely taken a morsel of food. He died last Saturday in his own bed. A little before his death he drank a quart of ale. He was reduced almost to a skeleton, from being a partly robust looking man. Excegsive [Excessive] drinking was the immediate and direct cause of his death. HovUsEBREAKING [Housebreaking] ON THE SaBpaTH.-On [Sabbath.-On] Wednesday last at the Court-house, Uppermill, [Upper mill] before James Lees, J. H. Whitehead, and Thomas Robinson, Esqs., [Esq] David Todd and James Brown were brought up in custody charged with breaking into, and stealing from the house of Mr. James Crossley, wharfinger, [Warner] of Woolroad, [Wool road] on Sunday last, a great many articles of clothing and other things, during the hours of divine service, and while Mr. Crossley was at chapel. The prisoners sold two pairs of cloth trousers on the Monday to two different persons for the respective sums of 5s. and 2s. 6d. They afterwards booked themselves as passengers to Hud- [HUD- Huddersfield] dersfield [Huddersfield] at the Diggle railway station. Mr. John Crossley, brother of the gentleman who had been robbed, is station-master there. He knew some parts of the clothing of the prisoners to be his brother's, and he acquainted Mr. W. Buckley, the railway constable at that station, with what he knew. The prisoners were questioned by the latter, and their answers not being satisfactory he took them into custody and searched them, when all the missing articles (except those which had been sold, and they were afterwards recovered) were found, together with a great many keys, some of which had been stolen from houses in the neighbour- [neighbourhood] hood, and were identified by their owners in court. The charges were most completely proved. The prisoners, who are young lads about 16 years old, refused to say any thing, and put no questions to the witnesses. They were committed for trial at the next quarter sessions to be held at Leeds.-Edward Garlick. and two others, were charged with kicking a door while drunk, without having any bad motive, or doing any mischief. They admitied [admitted] the charge, and were ordered to pay expenses.-John Schofield, constable, charged John Gledhili [Gledhill] and William Schofield with pushing him down in a public house. They were ordered to pay 2s. 6d. each and expenses.- [expenses] Squire Halley was brought up by order of the guardians of the poor, charged with refusing to contribute to the maintenance of his wife, who is a lunatic. He was ordered to pay 2s. per week. -Frank Farrand, late of Tame Water, who is now crazy, was ordered to be sent to the lunatic asylum at Wakefield.-A summons was issued against the Railway Company for poor rates. DEWSBURY. New County pedestrian who has visited the neighbourhood of the church will, doubtless, have observed, at the bottom of Church-strect, [Church-street] a hand- [handsome] some stone building, which has been in course of erection since March; it will be devoted to the purposes of the County Court. The total expenses, including ground, &e., will be about 2,200, to be defrayed out of the general fund. The building is in the Corinthian style of architecture, from the design of Charles Reeves, Esq., of London, and does infinite credit as well to the architect as to the contractors, Messrs. Sharp and Daw- [Dawson] son. We have seldom seen a building in this neigh- [neighbourhood] bourhood [boyhood] in such good taste, and it cannot fail being looked upon as a great acquisition by the inhabitants who take a pride in the possession of edifices constructed on true artistic principles. It is built of the best Daw Green freestone, and contains, besides the court-house, which is 43 feet long by 25 feet wide, several offices, &c., and will form the residence of the clerk. It is now rapidly approaching completion, and we are informed that it will be ready for opening in the early part of December. Dewsbury BEtts.-On [Bets.-On] Wednesday morning the town was enlivened by a peal of eight bells, rung by four Hull men (pupils of old Ben Thackeray, who has Been ringer here for fifty years), and four Dewsbury men. 5,000 was the number of changes fixed upon, which they completed in two hours and forty minutes. CUMBERWORTH. CHARGE OF THE CounTY [County] Porice [Price] SuPER- [Super- Superintendent] INTENDENT.-On [INTENDED.-On .-On] Tuesday last, before Joseph Armitage and W. W. Battye, Esqrs., [Esquires] at the Guildhall, Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field, Henry Tyas and John Cockshaw were charged with committing an aggravated assault upon Mr. Superin- [Superior- Superintendent] tendent [tendency] Heaton. Cockshaw pleaded guilty, but Tyas denied the charge. It appeared from the statement of Mr. Heaton that he was at Cumberworth on the 14th of September, a litile [little] after twelve at night, in company with one of the parochial constables, when, on passing the public-house kept by Mrs. Jane Fisher, they observed some fifty or sixty persons the worse for liquor, who had just been turned out of the house. They were intending passing them without notice, when the two prisoners began using very abusive language, and in the end struck and kicked Mr. Heaton, who swore positively to the identity of both. Tyas called two witnesses, one of whom swore positively to being in his company up to between ten and cleven [eleven] o'clock at night, and the other to the defendant being at his (witness's) house until be- [between] tween one and two o'clock in the morning. The bench did not seem to credit the alidi, [dial] and inflicted a penalty of 20s. and expenses in each case, or one months' im- [in- imprisonment] prisonment. [imprisonment] Tyas paid the money, and Cockshaw was committed to Wakefield. CHARGE UNDER THE Hichway [Highway] Act.-A young lad, a servant of a gentleman of the name of Kenworthy, was charged at the Huddersfield Guildhall, on Tuesday last, with riding in his cart without reins on the 6th ultimo. Fined 1s. 6d. and expenses, BERRY BROW. ASSAULTING THE ParocuiaL [Parochial] ConstaBLE. [Constable] John Bradley was charged by Mr. W. Riley, parochial constable, at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Tuesday last, with having committed an unprovoked assault upon him on Sunday, the 29th ult. Mr. Dransfield defended. The complainant said, that on the Sunday afternoon, on coming to a public-house, called Sidney Mills, he met Bradley, who pushed against him, knock- [knocking] ing him off the causeway, and then struck him severely on the chest and the back of the neck. Three witnesses were examined, who deposed that defendant at the time was the worse for liquor, but that they did not observe any assault, or anything further than that in passing the defendant staggered a little, and pushed against Mr. Riley, by that means throwing him off the causeway. The case was discharged on payment of a part of the expenses. age HONLEY. IntecaL [Interval] Mrasure.-The [Measure.-The] constable of Honley, Mr. W. Taylor, appeared before the Huddersfield magistrates on Tuesday last to prefer a charge against Henry Horsfeld, [Household] an itinerant greengrocer from Ashton, for having in his possession an illegal quart measure. It appeared that information had been given to the constable on the 14th ult. that some one was selling plums with an improper quart measure. On proceeding to the spot, the constable found a person retailing fruit with a measure professing tq be a quart, which on being tested was short about half a gill) The person refused to give his name, and the address on the cart was taken. The defendant ap- [appeared] peared [pared] in answer to the summons, and acknowledged that the measure was his property, but that he was not present at the time of sale, and was quite ignorant as to its being too small.

OFFENCE AGAINST THE BEERHOUSE [Beer house] Act.-On Tueglay [Tuesday] last, Mrs. Eastwood, wife of Joseph Eastwood, beerhquse [because] keeper, appeared at the Guildhall, Huddersfield to answer the charge of Mr. Superintendent Hestos [Storthes] of having his house open for the sale of beer after the lour allowed by the act of parliament. Mr. Superintenient [Superintendent] Green, of the Barnsley county police, said that 0 the 21st ult. he was in Skelmanthorpe about twenty mitutes [minutes] past eleven o'clock, p.m., when, observing lighty [light] and earing [eating] a noise in Eastwood's house, he obtaind [obtained] an entrance by the back door, and found ten or persons present. Mrs. Eastwood explained that was the meeting of a club, but there had no beer served. The case was dismi [dismiss] on paymmnt [payment] of expenses, i KIRKHEATON. Important 70 Couiiers.-In [Courier.-In] our police reports of last week, we had occasion to publish the results of a dispute between the coal agent of Sir John L. the men under his employ, as to the right of the former to change at option the nature of the mine work on which the men should be engaged. The case was re- [remanded] manded [Madden] to allow of Mr. Jagger being called in as arbi- [ab- arbitrator] trator, [orator] and came on for a second hearing on Tuesday last, at the Guildhall, before Joseph Armitage and W. W. Battye, Esqrs. [Esquires] On this occasion the case was con- [conducted] ducted by Mr. W. Barker, who intimated that Mr. Jagger had declined to act, and defended by Mr. J. I. Freeman. The defendant was one of the colliers, named Wm. Kit- [Kitson] son, who had thrown up his employment in consequence of having been removed from bank work to straight work. The facts of the case are briefly as follow Some years ago the defendant signed an agreement with Mr. Beecher on behalf of Sir John Kaye, whereby he bound himself to give three months' notice before leav- [leave- leaving] ing his employ. Until August last he and five others had been engaged on what is technically called bank work, and were in the receipt of an average weekly earning of about 16s. or 18s. per week. In August they were ordered by Mr. Beecher to leave their old holes and go and drive straight work, which they did up to the 21st ult., when, not making so much wage as previously, they requested to be allowed to return to their old holes, and on being refused pro- [proceeded] ceeded [needed] there on their own account. In consequence their tallies were returned, and they were given to understand that they would receive nothing for their work, on which they gave up and left the pit. The charge was then preferred against them for neglect of work, and was replied to by pleading that Mr. Beecher had no right, either in justice or custom, to remove them from bank work to straight work, without afresh agreement. The question at issue was princi- [Prince- principally] pally one of custom, and evidence was examined for the prosecution, who proved that not only was it quite cus- [us- customary] tomary [Mary] to change from bank work to straight work, but that the latter was always considered the bestand [stand] most 'profitable. Many extraneous matters were introduced, but the above are the simple facts, and under the circum- [circus- circumstances] stances the bench ordered Kitson to pay the expenses and return to his work, or in default be committed to Wakefield fur three months. There were three other cases under similar charges, which were decided by consent in the same manner, without being gone into. Our readers and the musical public will be gratified to learn that it is in contemplation to have an oratorio in the Parish Church of Kirkheaton, about the middle of next month, in aid of the fund for liquidating the debt incurred by the erection of the schools. The debt, which a few months ago was nearly 800, is, we under- [understand] stand, now reduced, by the voluntary contributions ofa [of] few friends to about 350, and this sum the committee are desirous of discharging by means of the oratorio, and of a bazaar to be held next spring. We may add, that, as is usual, at Kirkheaton, the performance will be of a first-rate character as regards both the talent of the artistes and the arrangements of the committee of management. At a meeting of the ratepayers of the township of Kirkheaton, held in the vestry of the church, on Friday the 4th inst., Mr. Richard Ellam was re-nominated to the Thornhill Court Leet, [Lee] held this day (Saturday), to act as Chief Constable of the township for the ensuing ear. y HALIFAX. AssEssor's [Assessor's] CoURT [Court] FOR THE REVISION OF THE BURGESS Rotit.-On [Root.-On] Wednesday the 9th instant, this court was holden at the Town-hall, Union-street, when the follow- [following] ing was the summary of results - Objections made by Liberal party, 32; sustained, 24. Claims is ditto, 35. Whig 12; 3 10. Neither objections nor claims were made by the Tory party, who seem at present to interest themselves but little in municipal matters. InxquEst.-On [Question.-On] Tuesday last, an inquest was held be- [before] fore George Dyson, Esq., coroner, at the Clothier's Arms, Netherthong, over the body of a little girl, aged six months, named Ann Preston, who, having acci- [acct- accidentally] dentally fallen into a bowl of hot water, was thereby scalded to death. Verdict accordingly. Baptist CHAPEL, PELLON-LANE.-We [MELLON-LANE.-We] regret to hear that the respected pastor of the congregation worship- [worshipping] ping in the above place of worship has deemed it neces- [NeWS- necessary] sary [say] to send in his resignation, owing to unhappy dif- [if- differences] ferences [references] which at present prevail in his church. Without entering into their nature, or passing any opinion thereon, we cheerfully bear testimony to the consistent, humble, and assiduous life which the rev. gentleman has maintained in the town for upwards of seventeen years the poor, the sick, and the distressed will have great cause for regret should he adhere to the step he has taken. ---- . BOARD OF TRADE RETURNS. These returns, for the month ending Sept. 5, show a decrease of 279,961, as compared with the correspond- [corresponding] ing month of the year preceding. But we need not conclude, from this fact, unfavourably to our present commercial prospects, since the month of September, 1849, was altogether an extraordinary one, presenting an excess of no less than 1,816,000 over that of the year before it. In glancing over the tables just issued the deficiency of the month is accounted for, and more than accounted for, by one article, viz. cotton yarn, the ex- [exportation] portation [Corporation] of which amounted to only 554,484 against 1,016,803 of the preceding year, leaving a deficiency of 462,319, considerably more than the entire diminution of the month. In nearly every other article the expor- [export- exportation] tation [station] steadily increases. We subjoin a list of some of the principal items.

The last two months alone exhibit a decrease, the former six being all in excess, the greatest being that of June, the increase of which amounted to 1,604,623. With respect to the month's imports, that of wheat has increased, but grain of other sorts, Indian corn, flour and meal, have fallen off. There isa slight in- [increase] crease upon provisions, also upon butter, cheese, live animals, and eggs. Coffee, British and foreign, has increased from 5,590,840 Ibs. [Is] in September, 1849, to 7,315,338lbs. in 1850. Sugar has fallen off from 1,195,493 to 809,516 ewts.; [West] and tea from 2,753,724lbs. to 1,749,368lbs. But in the quanti- [quantity- quantities] ties taken for home consumption there is less discre- [discreet- discrepancy] pany [any] in the figures. The returns still continue, on the whole, to evidence the generally prosperous state of our commercial relations. or PROFESSIONAL REMUNERATION.-The following new pro- [provision] vision respecting professional in the county courts, which is about to come into force, appears in the new act the jurisdiction to 50 And be it enacted that the fees to be taken by barristers-at-law and attorneys practising in the said courts, in cases breught [brought] within the jurisdiction given by this act, shall be as fol- [follows] lows An attomey [Attorney] shall be entitled to have or recover a sum not exceeding 1 10s. for his fees and costs where the debt or demand claimed in any plaint in covenant, debi, [Deb] detinue, [detain] or assumpsit, [assist] shall not exceed 385, or 2 in any other cause within the jurisdiction given by this act, and in no case shall any fee exceeding 2 4s. 6d. be allowed for employing a barrister as counsel in thecause, [the cause] and uheexpense [expense] of employing a barrister or an attorney either by plainiiff [plaintiff] or defendant shall not be allowed on taxation of costs unless by order of the judge, and the judges of the said courts respectively shall from time to time determine in what cases such expenses shall be allowed. Cuzap [CAP] Gas.-On Thursday evening week a number of gentlemen assembled at Vauxhall Gardens to witness the experiments of the Count de Hombres in the manufacture of gas from water, upon the principle of Mr. Gillard's in- [invention] vention. [mention] The count exhibited the process of manuiaciure, [manufacture] and explained its principles. It consists in the decomposi- [decomposition- decomposition] tion [ion] of water by passing a jet of steam over a bed of incan- [Inman- incandescent] descent charcoal in a retort, the gaseous producis [produces] of which are hydrogen and carbonic acid gas. he latter being separated, by the action of quick-lime in a purifier, the hydrogen in a state of comparative purity is inducted to a gasholder for use. As hydrogen gas, in a state of com- [combustion] bustion, [question] possesses of itself very illuminating power, the inventor has had recourse to the same experiment by which the intense light used in the oxyhydrogen [hydrogen] micro- [microscopes] scopes is obtained. The possibility of producing gas from the decomposition of water has been lon [on] g known to scientific men the object of modern science has been directed to render it applicable to purposes of common use as an illu- [ill- illuminating] minating [maintain] power, pure hydrogen ges [ge] an unsteady flame emitting great heat, but useless as a means of illumination, Mr. Gillard has invented an apparatus of platinum wire, which is fitted by a brass frame to the burner, by which the flame is converted into a column of intensely white light, and by the application of a brass chimney a steady light is produced without the emission of a particular smell or smoke. The experiments werecompletely [were completely] successfl.

The safety of the system having, in this way, kept pace with the system itself, it recom- [com- recommends] mends itself to the attention of those who have not yet availed themselves of it for the safe investment of their surplus means. Itis [Its] highly fortunate that this peculiar development of the associative principle should have been so uniformly successful the fact suggests a belief that, rapid as has been the augmentation of the business of Ife [If] assurance, we may look forward to its regular extension in an almost geometrical progression. There is ample room for all the societies now existing, and for double or trip'e the number, were the advantages of the system, and the duty of its observance, as general among our people as the pursuit of industrial occupations for the supply of material wants. While not one man in ten, not even one in a hundred, wil be found among us refusing to labour for the support of his family, we have the equally unfortunate tact that not above one man in ten has been prudent and far- [farseeing] seeing enough to make provision, by life assurance, for that family, in case of their ceasing by his death to enjoy the benefit of his labour. Hitherto, the system of life assu- [as- assurance] rance [France] has been more particularly confined to the middle classes. But it has recently struck the minds of a number of benevolent gentlemen, that the system might be made equally acceptable and beneficial to the operative classes. With a view to draw that class within the reach of its in- [influence] fluence, [influence] they have established insurance societies expressly designed to adapt the system to their wants and habits These newer societies have been as honestly and success- [successfully] fully conducted as their older and more wealthy allies; and we trust that the foundation has been laid for making, in the course of another generation, the practice of working- [winkles] class family endowment ond [and] assurance as much the rule as it now unfortunately is the exception. Were it once fairly engrafted [en grafted] into the spirit of the working population of this country, we should have gone through a social revolution a hundredfold more beneficial in its effects than any other single change which could be gained by or conferred upon society It is an ascertained fact that the insurance com- [companies] panies [Panis] in the United Kingdom at present in operation comprise about 150,000 assured lives; while from two millions to two millions and a-half of persons, who are in a condition to avail themselves of this assistance, voluntarily exclude themselves from the advantages within their reach. Thus then, there is room and verge enough for the operation of many more societies than are likely to be called into existence by the increased and increasing desire for provision inst the ills attendant upon age, disease, or calamity. e of the societies which have recently been established particularly recommends itself on account of its adaptation to the requirements of the working classes. The Industrial and General Life Assurance and Deposit Com- [Company] pany, [any] by receiving weekly, monthly, or quarterly payments of Is. or a larger sum, instead of requiring the whole of a year's premium in advance, places the requisite provision within the reach of even the poorest artizan. [artisans] With a large capital, the profits of the society are rated upon the lowest scale consistent with the general security; and instead of paid-up premiums being forfeited by their discontinuance, they can be at all times borrowed or reclaimed at their value. The society thns [this] partakes of the nature of a savings bank as well as an insurance institution; and from the con- [continuance] tinuance [Finance] of its operations, and the establishment of other societies upon similar principles, we confidently anticipate measure of social improvement to those who so much require elevation. The society has already issued upwards of 500 policies. AN INCONTESTIBLE [incontestable] Proor [Poor] OF THE EFFicacy [Efficacy] oF Hot- [Holloway] LOWAY'S [LOWER'S] PILLS FOR THE CURE OF LIVER COMPLAINTS.- [COMPLAINTS] Mr. Robert Elkins, of Cambeltown, [Carlton] New South Wales, had been afflicted for several months with a severe liver com- [complaint] plaint, which reduced him to so low that he was compelled to take to his bed. Finding no relief from the medical aid he received, he was advised to give Holloway's Pills a trial, Which he did; and this invaluable medicine (the instructions given with it being strictly followed) in the course of a few weeks re-established him in the enjoy- [enjoyment] ment [men] of as good health as ever he possessed in his life, WRECK OF THREE INDIAMEN.-By [INDIAN.-By] the arrival of the Overland Mail from India, on Friday afternoon, the under- [underwriters] writers at Lloyd's were put in possession of information relative to the loss of three first-class ships employed in the East India trade-namely, the Manchester, 600 tors, bound for London the Ariadne, 700 tons, of Greenock, bound for Liverpool and the Nereid, 700 tons, of London. That of the Ariadne created the deepest regret, the intelligence leaving very little doubt that all hands, together with some passengers, met with a watery grave. The unfortunate ship, we are given to understand, sailed from Caleutta [Calcutta] for England in the latter part of July, with a valuable freight on board. About three weeks afterwards some vessels bound to Calcutta, in passing near Palmyra Point, on the India coast, discovered a wreck, which on examination proved to be that of the Ariadne. No living creature, how- [however] ever, was to be seen on the wreck, or in any other place near it, and she was fast breaking up. Immediately on the melancholy news reaching Calcutta the authorities des- [despatched] patched a government steamer to the spot, with instruc- [instruct- instructions] tions [tins] to ascertain, if possible, the fate of the crew. A few hours before the mail steamer started for England the steamer started for Calcutta with intelligence confirming the loss of the ship and cargo, and that great doubts existed regarding the fate of those belonging to the ship. The chief mate of the Ariadne was picked up on a spar by the steamer off the coast, forty miles southward of the place where the ship was lost. 'The poor fellow was in a shocking state of exhaustion. He had been twelve days exposed, subsisting entirely upon berries. As far as could be gleaned from him, it appeared that the master and crew had been carried out to sea on a raft in a gale of wind. The steamer went in search, and after several days' cruising returned to Calcutta. It is reporied [reported] there were from thirty to forty persons on the raft, and, from the violent state of the weather when it was driven out to sea, it is doubtful whether any of them survive. Still, hopes are entertained that they may have been picked up by some vessel. The ship and cargo are valued at 30,000. The Manchester, Indiaman, [Indian] was wrecked on the Saugor [Sugar] Islands on the 6th of August, a few days' sail from Calcutta. Several of the crew met with injury by the falling of her mainmast after the ship struck, but all hands were fortu- [forty- fortunate] nate [ate] enough to escape in the boats before the vessel broke up It is considered a very heavy loss. She was the pro- [property] perty [petty] of Messrs. Wade and Co., merchants in the city, who are said to be insured. The other unfortunate ship, the Nereid, foundered on the morning of the 9th of July last, in latitude 34 52S. [S'S] In a tremendous gale of wind she encountered some days previous she sprang a leak, and eventually the crew were compelled to take to the boats, the ship foing [doing] down headforemost [head foremost] within an hour after- [afterwards] wards. The gale had not abated when the boats left, and it was with great exert'ons they were got to a vessel, the Emperor, from Calcutta, the master of which had hove his ship to and remained by them from the previous night. They were taken on board and received every kindness, The Nereid belonged to Messrs. Phillips and Co., of the city. The loss of the three ships is calculated to exceed 100,000.
