'PENING OF THE ORGAN at Buxton Roap Caapel. — Owing to the hurry eunsequent on the first weck of our tarcer we neglected menticning this truly magnificent insumMeNt in our last ; but having had time to gather more full wid correct information, wehave the ics hesitation in drawing tag attention ofour readers to it. It contains 1d steps, (or voices,) in the Great Organ, 4m the Choir, 12 in the Swell, and § in the Pedal Organ ; in all 40, of which 10 are reed nups. It has 4 couplings, 4 bellows, 6 composition pedals, and 2852 pipes. By an ingenieus mechanical contrivance, at the will of the organist, each stop in the pedal organ wil play its octave above, therby giving the effect of 18 swops. It was opened for devotional use on Good Friday ; vhen a sermon was preached by the Rev. F. A. West, in the morning ; and im the evening Mr. Booth, Organist of Lrunswick Chapel, Leeds, gave a 1asterly performance, uiciy organ pieces, from the works cf the Old Masters. Un Monday evening, also, a selection of sacred piasic was jerformed by the Sheffield Parish Charch Cheir ; the principal vocalist being Mrs. Parkes. The congregations turoughout were large and respectable. The exterior of the instrament is grand and impusing. The two end towers contain G metal pipes, each 16 feet long. Of the organ incl! we emmnot speak too highly. The tone is unrivalied ; tie diapasons meilow and soft; the ehorus stops brilliant, ruin, and fall of vivacity, and the truzpets full, round, end sonorous, Delicacy and grandeuer are the characterstics of this noble instrument ; and we have no doubt that ju the hands of an organist of taste and ability it will materialy conduce to the high purpess for which it is designed. Weiad omitted to state thyt the instrument was built by Mr. T. L. Robson, the eminent organ builder of London.

A Case or Suspected CHILD Murder. — considerable excitement was caused in Lower Head Row and the neighbourhood of Castlegate, at the commencement of the present week, from the circumstance of the body of a newlyborn female child being found in an ash heap in ene of the courts adjoining. Information was immediately conveyed to the proper authorities, and on Wednesday last an inquest was held on the body, before T. Dyson, Esq., coroner for the district, and a respectable jury, at the reyhound Inn, Market Walk. Mr. Clarke, the surgeon, who had made a post :arrtem examination of the body, gave it as his opinion that the child had been born alive, but that death had afterwards ensued from a fracture which was manifest oa the head, and from suffocation by pressure upon the face, which, in his judgment, weve sufficient to cause death to supervene. An open yerdiet, in accordance with the opinion given by Mr. Clarke, was returned. We understand that the police authorities are endeavouring to trace out the author of what, there can be little doubt, is a case of aggravated child-murder. The body, when found, was enveloped in part of an oid coal-bag, and was tumed out of the cess-pool during the night by one of the night scavengers in the employ of the Improvement Commissioners. The bundle was by this person placed on one side, and left there, without being opened. During the next day a pig belonging to a pariy residing .in the neighbourhood was observed to be turning it over, as if anxious to get at its coatents. Shortly afterwards, a female, in passing, strack her foot against the bag, and its weight, on lifting it, induced her to have the bag opened, when the discovery that it contained the body of a child was made. The cess-pool of the privy was an open cne, and common to a considerable number of the imhabitants of that district, in the vicinity of which are several low lodging-houses.
CLERICAL Appointment. — we understand that the Rev. J. R. Harding, late curate of St. Paul's, in this town, has been appointed curate of Sedbury, in the West-riding,
MEETING IN Favour OF THE NATIONAL Exposition. — A public meeting, with the view to promote the Exposition of industry in 1551, was held in the National School, Honley, on Wednesday week. The room was about half filled by working men, who had been specially invited. Among the speakers on the occasion were THOMAS Brook, Esq., jen., Chairman ; Mr. John Robinson, of Cliffe House ; Mr. Kellett, Mr. Mellor, and Mr. Farrington, besides several workmg men in the body of the meeting. Mr. Robinson explained at great length the leading defects in connection with the cloth manufacture of the West Riding, and particularly the district around Honley, and urged upon masters and men to exert themselves, and produce something for the coming exhibition that would give a prestige to the manufactures of the district, not only in the estimation of England herself, but among our rivals in Belgium and France. After considerable discussion it was decided that for the present no subscription should be opened, but in the mean time a committee, composed of the chairman and the gentlemen who had signed the requisition, was adopted, with the view to ascertain what steps it would be desirable to take in order to carry out the views of the promoters of the exhibition. Mr. Robrnson, in eulogistic terms, complimented their young chairman — as the worthy son of 2 worthy sire, — on presiding for the firsttime in his life at a meeting of such a character, and coneluded by moving a vote of thanks to him for his conduct in the chair. — The vote was pased by acclamation, and having been feelingly acknowledged by Mr. Brook, the proceedings terminated.

MEETING OF Guardians — yeesrerpay.
Yesterday was the last meeting; pf the retiring Board of Guardians. Upwards of twenty were present, including MATTHEW Sykrs, Esq. the Chairman. and Messrs, East. wood and Bottomley, the two Vice-chairmen,.
The balance in the hands of the Treasurer was declared to be £925. 193. 3d,
After the relief business had been concluded, Mr.
STWOOD gave notice that on Friday next be should move that in future all advertisements of the Union be inserted in the Huddersfield Chronicle and Leeds Bfervu ry.
The Cuainman called the attention of the Guardians to two letters received from Mr. Clarke, Medical Officer of the Huddersfield South District, and Mr. Allatt, suizeon, of Paddock, relative to the contemplated division of the Huddersfield South Medical District, The above gentlemen have lately been in correspondence with the Guardians on this snbject, with a view to benefit the inhabitants of Paddock and Marsh, by the appointment of a resident Medical Officer in Paddock. Owing to the distance of his residence from Paddock, Mr. Clarke has himself felt the desirableness of dividing the district, and the two medieal gentlemen having agreed upon the proportion of salary to be taken from the Huddersfield South District, and on the boundaries to form the Paddock District, it now only awaited the approval and confirmation of the Guardians.
After some discussion, it was moved by Mr. Eastwoop, (Vice Chairman) seconded by Mr. Beysamin Halch, and carried unanimously, that a new District be accordingly formed, and Mr. Allatt appointed Medical Officer thereof, subject to the approval of the Poor Law Board, upon the terms stated in the two letters read to the Guardians, and that such letters be entered in the minutes for future reference.
A letter was also read from Mr. Hathorn, on behalf of Joshua Thornton, of Paddock, claiming £10 compensation for the damage done to his land by the erection of the temporary Cholera Hospital, which he (Mr. Hathorn).
A long discussion ensued on the reading of this letter, and it was eventually moved by Mr. Iveson that the amount be paid, as it was left to Mr. Hathorn, who promised to see that a reasonable sum only should be paid for the land.
The motion having been seconded by Mr. Morehouse, was carried unanimously. A cheque was accordingly ordered for the amount ; the establishment to be debited therewith.
Other business of an unimportant nature having been disposed of, the Chairman announced that the business of the parochial year was now concluded, and he accordingly vacated the chair.
Ou the motion of Mr. Morehouse, Mr. Lirtlewood was requested to take the chair.
Mr. Morewouse then, in an appropriate speech, moved a vote of thanks te the late Chairman, for his uniform attendance at the Board, and the courtesy and ability with which he had discharged the arduous duties of his office, ond poneluded by expressing a wish that he might long live to fill it.
Mr. Totson seconded the motion, which, having been put by Mr. Littlewood, all hands (two to each guardian) were unanimously, and amid great applause, held up.
Mr. Sykes returned thanks, and expressed himself as amply repaid for anything he had done by the handsome and unanimous compliment they had just now paid him.
Mr. Quarmby here observed that he hoped they should never have a change while he (the Chairman) did xorse than he had done.
Mr. Iveson, in a cemplimentary manner, moved a vote of thanks to the two Vice-chairmen, Messrs. Eastwood and Bottomley.
Mr. Barker seconded the motion, and the two gentlemen returned thanks, Mr. Wastwood observing that thcir Chairman had not required much assistance during the past year, he having only been absent one meeting.
The Charrmmann — '" And the Vice-chairman was with me" (a laugh).
The CLERK then informed the meeting that tho new Board would meet on Friday next, and communicated the result of the Huddersfield election, which had just concluded.
The meeting then separated, with hearty good wishes for 'a happy new year."

Yurksaire SCHOOL FOR THE Blind. — we are glad to perceive that the managing commitiee of that interesting charity, the Yorkshire School for the Blind, have resolved to afivrd the inhabitants of this town and neighbourhood fan opportunity of estimating in some measure the benefits wich the institution conveys to the pupils committed to its care. We have visted the school at York, and been much interested by witnessing the pupils employed in their various avocations, and have been more particularly grati-
fied by the proficiency which many of them display in the art of both voeal and instrumental music. Our readers will observe in our advertising columns an announcement that several of the pupils will attend meotings at the Philosophical Hall, on Thursday next, and we feel warranted in promising those who may attend the meetings nauch intellectual and moral gratification.
NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. ee
Censor will perceive that the publication of his letter is unnecessary, inasmuch as our columns contain a timely remonstrance from the 'great unknown" himself. £everal other communications baring on the same subject, have been withheld from the same cause. We may now consider the idea thrown out by "Plato" lcetimately extinguished.
Observer's letter would serve no good purpose or he shoud claim a niche in our correspondent's colin.
Junius is thanked, but his poetical effusious are declin-r. In case he forwards the other communications promised. they must be accompanied by his real name, but uiless treated in novel manner neither article would le suitable for our columns,
J. K., Westgatz, must wait patiently until we hive weighed his poetical effusion in the balanse, when ke shall know our decision.
