The movement in connexion with the Poor Man's National Monument to Sir Robert Peel has also commenced in Manchester, under the auspices of Mr. George Wilson, the late Chairman of the League, with the most satisfactory prospects. The people of Ashton-under-Lyne have also determined upon erecting some memorial in their town, but of what precise nature we have not learnt, nor the amount of subscription promised up to the present time.

[for export] Prices THE CHRONICLE, JULY 13, 1850. - -- --- -. TENANT-AT-WILL PROPERTY. In last week's Chronicle we gave, at considerable of club presidents and others interested in the recently-introduced alteration in the tenure of tenant-at-will property on the Ramsden estates ; and we have pleasure in calling attention to those proceedings the movement showing that the representatives of the many building and money clubs of the neighbourhood are sensibly alive (and properly so) to the importance and ultimate bearing of the alteration attempted. oo At the meeting in question a deputation was appointed to wait on the agents of the Trustees of Sir J. W. Ramsden, to represent to them the injury the newly-introduced regulations will have upon the poorest portion of the Ramsden tenantry, who have hitherto relied solely on the honour and faith of the Ramsden family and also, the danger to be apprehended by the whole of the holders under this peculiar tenure if the old customs under which they have hitherto held are departed from. As we understand GEorcE [George] Locu, [Lock] Esq., the first agent of the trustees, is to be at Longley Hall on Tuesday next, we think it a likely time for the attendance of the deputation and suggest that they seek a conference with Mr. Loc [Lock] himself on the important subject they have in charge. Direct communica- [communicate- communication] tion, [ion] where practicable, is far preferable than com- [communication] munication [communication] through intermediate parties and we are sure that Mr. will be ready to listen to any respectful representation proceeding from such a large body of the Ramsden tenantry as are in rested on this occasion. NATIONAL TRIBUTE TO DEPARTED WORTH. In the House of Commons last night, a motion would be made, having for its object the perpetua- [perpetual- perpetuation] tion [ion] of the memory of one of its most illustrious ornaments by a National Monument in Westmister [Minister] Abbey; and there is little doubt that the proposi- [propose- proposition] tion [ion] would be unanimously confirmed by that Assembly. Mr. CoppEen [Cop peen] and Mr. Hume have sig- [signified] nified [Unified] their approval of a Working Man's Penny Subscription for a similar purpose, which is being rapidly embraced by the artizans [artisans] in the leading commercial towns; while in the City of London, Manchester, Salford, Sheffield, Leeds, Bury, and a number of other towns, similar modes (but locally confined) of expressing the loss sustained by the nation have been resolved upon. No remembrance of political difference has crept in to allay that spirit of universal regret with which the first inti- [into- intimation] mation [nation] Sir Roperr [Roper] death was received by the nation and in quarters where political antagon- [antagonist- antagonism] ism was hottest while the Statesman breathed, the regrets for his untimely loss have been the most unaffected, and the sympathy of the inhabitan [inhabitant] with his family the most sincere, . In Huddersfield steps have already been taken for convening a public meeting at an early day, with a view to concert measures by which a mo- [monument] nument [moment] to perpetuate the worth of the lamented statesman may be secured in some part of our town, and at which meeting also an address of condolence with the bereaved family of the de- [deceased] ceased may be agreedupon. [agreed upon] As yet our town cannot boast of a public monument to any of the nation's benefactors; and we know of no more suitable occasion with which to commence than is presented in the lamented death of Sir Rosert [Robert] PEEL; and we trust that the movement will result in the erection of a solid and substantial menument [monument] to the memory of the Representative Statesman of the Nineteenth Century, which will call up associations in the generations to come, worthy the pioneer of com- [commercial] mercial [commercial] freedom and unrestricted intercourse among the nations of the earth. THE ATTACK ON HER MAJESTY. A most silly, and possibly half-cracked young man, has been tried and found guilty, by a jury of intelligent Englishmen, of having assaulted Her Masssty, [Mass sty] by striking her a slight blow with a small hand-cane. The defence set up, as a matter of course, was that of insanity, but we are gratified that the plea did not avail. Instead of treating the case as a grave offence, the prisoner was tried as a common breaker of the peace, and has been sen- [sentenced] tenced [fenced] to transportation for seven years. Had the assault been committed on an ordinary personage, the result would possibly been a sound castigation administered to the silly fellow on the spot, and there the matter might have rested but inasmuch as it was made on the most prominent personage in these realms, the course which has been pursued is, we imagine, the most salutary. The disgust and general indifference with which the fellow has been looked upon, and the stern sentence which has been passed on him-and which we make no doubt will be carried out-will exercise a most salutary influ- [influenza- influence] ence [once] on that class of shallow-brained fellows of which the prisoner in this case is a fit specimen to hold up to public contempt. ed Now that government has resolved on treating the insulters [insults] of royalty as beings who stand in need of sound chastisement, rather than by surrounding them with all the importance of a state trial, we rest assured that attacks on the QuEEN [Queen] and others of distinction will be less frequent than formerly. THE POST-OFFICE QUESTION. We have had frequent occasion, of late, to con- [condemn] demn [Dean] the blind and narrow sectarian policy which, under the influence of an accidental vote in parlia- [Parliament- parliament] ment, [men] has resulted in the total cessation of commu- [com- communication] nication [nation] by post on the Sunday. We have all along predicted that the experiment would educe a 'strenuous opposition from all parts of the country, and we need only refer to the instances of bitter annoyance and inconvenience which have re- [resulted] sulted [suited] from the adoption of Lord AsHLEy's [Ashley's] motion to prove that our conjectures on this matter have been well-grounded, and the opinion that par- [parliament] liament [Parliament] would be compelled, in a few weeks, to retrace their steps, in this particular, was correct. The House of Commons have already been en- [engaged] gaged [aged] in the re-consideration of the matter, on the motion of Mr. Locks, M.P. for Honiton, who, on Tuesday evening, at a late hour, moved the follow- [following] ing resolution -- That, whilst this house acknowled [acknowledged] with satisfaction the diminution in the amount of Sunday labour effected by the recent arrangements in the Post-office, it cannot but be sensible of the great public inconvenience which has arisen from the total cessation of any delivery or collection of letters on Sundays, and that a humble address be there- [therefore] fore presented to her Majesty praying that she will be gra- [ga- graciously] ciously [Sicily] pleased to cause an inquiry to be made, whether the amount of Sunday labour ht not be reduced without completely putting an end to the collection and delive [deliver of letters, &c., on Sundays and that, pending such inquiry, her Majesty will be graciously pleased to give orders that the collection and delivery of letters, &c.,on Sundays, shall be continued as heretofore. After an ineffectual attempt to get rid of the motion, on the ground that the hour (eleven Lord Jony [Joy] suggested, as a substitute for the motion, that a humble address should be pre- [presented] sented [scented] to her Majesty, praying that she would be graciously pleased to cause an enquiry to be made whether the amount of Sunday labour in the Post- [Post office] office might not be reduced without eompletely [completely] putting an end to the collection and delivery of letters on a Sunday. Minister, Mr. Locke pressed his motion to divi- [div- division] sion, when there voted for the motion 92, and TERA [TEA] against it 233, thus leaving the mover in a minority THE An TON IN THE TENURE OF of 141. Lord Jonn amendment then See came before the house as a substantive resolution, and, notwithstanding the strenuous opposition of length, a report of the proceedings of the meeting the Sabbatarians, was carried by a majority of 83; the numbers being-185 [being-W] for, and 112 against, the of gas; o'clock) was too late for the discussion to begin, In opposition to the suggestion from the Prime enquiry. Thus far then we have done with that section of the House who passed a foolish and absurd re- [resolution] solution the day after the Derby and we must now look to the Government for setting this matter right, for in their hands the settlement of the question really stands. But in order that they may have the general concurrence of the majority of the country at their back it is highly desirable that those who condemn this Sabbatarian meddling spirit should at once express themselves in unmis- [unis- unmistakeable] takeable [table] language. It is now proposed to institute an enguiry-the [enquiry-the] nature and character of which rests with the Government; but inasmuch as it was contended in the discussion on Tuesday that no change onght [ought] to be made without further enquiry we must confess that we should have been better pleased with Lord Joun [John] Russet had he reinstated the old system of things until the enquiry had been made, seeing that the recent objectionable alteration was carried ina most premature manner, and in the absence of any previous enquiry whatever. However, we are not desirous to quibble over the way in which Parliament retraces its erring steps. Lord Joun [John] has taken the most desirable course, possibly, which under all circumstances, he could have taken. Having committed the error of re- [recommending] commending Her Majesty to comply with the address of Lorp [Lord] and his Sabbatarian supporters, he has perhaps pursued the only course by which the general feeling of the public can be consulted, and a Parliamentary resolu- [resolute- resolution] tion [ion] recently passed, be rescinded; but he may rest assured that any change, falling short of a general collection and delivery of letters once on the Sunday will not satisfy the wants or the wishes of the community at large. The past two weeks have furnished abundant evidence as to the serious inconvenience-nay more-of the most painful consequences in domestic circles, arising out of the absurd change in the Post Office department. It is true that a few Post-masters in some mi- [minor] nor towns, have thrown their influence into the scale in favour of this Sabbatarian movement but we question much if these gentlemen will be heard any more in advocacy of Lord AsHuey's [Ashley's] Post-office policy, inasmuch as within the past few days a general order has emanated from the Post Office Department, the result of which will be to reduce the remuneration of the letter-carriers, and possibly of Post-masters and Clerks, in consideration of the reduced hours they are employed, in case Lord ASHLEY's resolution continues to be acted upon. But as authorities have been quoted by some of our contemporaries in favour of this Sabbatarian change, and as, among others, the Post-master of the little town of Barnsley has been adduced as an authority in its favour, we may be excused making reference to the opinions expressed in this day's Chronicle, in a letter addressed partly to ourselves and in part inserted-but in other parts omitted, by one of our Leeds contemporaries of last week,- [week] from the Post-master of Huddersfield, whose testi- [test- testimony] mony [money] will be considered, by practical men, as an ample refutation of the testimony of the gentleman to whom we have before alluded. In the sentiments conveyed in Mr. Moore's letter we heartily concur ; and, were instances wanted in proof of the distressing domestic inconvenience resulting from the change, our own experience of the past few days, in two instances, would abundantly confirm all that was advanced by Mr. Locke in the House of Commons on Tuesday night. There is no question that the English are a religious people, and owe much of their social prominence above the nations of the world to their religious institutions; but if one ele- [Lee- element] ment [men] in their character be more marked than another, it is their dislike to be bound down, as a nation, by the peculiar views of any section of religionists. Lord AsHLEY [Ashley] has done much, in times past, to improve the condition of the people; -the religious zeal of various sects have inspired them with energy to carry out many desirable reforms, in a religious and social point of view, but this last attempt at sectarian dictation is, to use the words of Sampson, too prodigious to pass without indignant protestations on be- [behalf] half of the great bulk of the community; and the sooner Parliament rescinds its recent vote, the better will it be for religion-for its own character as a representative legislative body, and for the interests of the great body of the people. - . THE MEMORIAL ON THE GAS QUESTION. Ir will be remembered that onthe7th [another] of June, Com- [Commissioner] missioner Moore was charged with the presenta- [present- presentation] tion [ion] of a memorial to the Improvement Com- [Commissioners] missioners from some 400 inhabitant ratepayers of Huddersfield, the majority of whom were also con- [consumers] sumers [Summers] of gas, wherein they asked that the Com- [Commissioners] missioners would arrange to purchase the works of the present Gas Company or proceed to erect gas works of their own. The memorialists, [memorials] in their statement of reasons for such a step, instanced the profits accruing from the supply of gas in Manches- [Manchester- Manchester] ter, [te] Salford, and Rochdale by the public represen- [represent- representative] tative [native] bodies in those towns, and which profits are there devoted to the necessary and public im- [in- improvements] provements, [movements] as they ought to be in Huddersfield, and as they most undoubtedly would be were the Gas Works in the hands of the Improvement Com- [Commissioners] missioners, instead of being, as at present, under the control and management of a private company. After that memorial, thus numerously signed, had been presented and duly received, Commissioner Tuomas [Thomas] made a statement in respect to the signatures appended thereto somewhat tothe [tithe] follow- [following] ing effect [effect] He found on looking over this memorial that there were 16 manufacturers, 52 merchants, 10 solicitors, and 10 wool- [wool staplers] staplers, in all 89 persons, who did not, he believed, con- [consume] sume [sum] 1,000 feet of gas amongst them a year. Then he found, on looking further, some 190 shopkeepers who had signed the memorial, and he should like to know what pro- [proportion] portion of rates they paid compared with their con- [consumption] sumption. He (the speaker) fancied that they paid a much greater proportion for rates than they paid Er the con. sumption of gas. His own opinion was that they must be looked upon more in the light of ratepayers than as consumers. Then again, there were several innkeepers. who it was well known were great ratepayers Commissioner CRosLaNnD [Crosland And are they not also great gas consumers 2 and, who, no doubt, as had been remarked, were also t gas consumers. All these things considered, he did not consider the memorial made out quite so strong a case as Mr. Moore would have them to believe. Wehave, [Have] ona [on] former occasion, promised ourreaders [our readers] an opportunity of judging for themselves how far the assertion above-made was correct, by printing the names of the memorialists [memorials] in extenso; [extension] but for the past few weeks more pressing events have pre- [precluded] cluded [eluded] us from doing so. This week, however, we have redeemed our promise, and in another part of this day's Chronicle will be found the names of the parties who signed the memorial in question. 'We have before taken occasion to question Com- [Commissioner] missioner FirTu's [Firth's] premises in this particular; but we do not longer ask that the refutation should rest merely on our assertion. The names are now before the ratepayers, as well as Commissioner Fiern's [Fern's] assertion respecting them. We ask the ratepayers and inhabitants of Huddersfield to ist [its] rt that they peruse that list and we venture to asse [ass] will not be so rash as to assert, after a careful perusal, that the eighty-nine persons alluded to by Commissioner FirtH [Firth] do not consume one thousand amongst them in the year. oe mistake not there will be found, among the memorialists, [memorials] individual manufacturers, mer- [Mr- merchants] chants and solicitors, who are large consumers and who use ten times more gas per annum, individually, than the whole quantity which Mr. Firta [Firth] has computed as the maximum consumed by the whole eighty and nine. How- [However] ever, we cannot better expose the fallacy of Mr. Fretn's [Fret's] assertion than by requesting a perusal of the memorial itself. eg THE RE-OPENING OF THE GAS QUESTION. By the Report of the proceedings at the late Meeting of the Improvement Commissioners, in- [inserted] serted [seated] in another place, it will be seen that it has been determined to re-open-or rather to un-shelve -the Gas Question and that the moving cause to this most extra-ordinary proceeding is, Mr. JERE- [HERE- JEREMIAH] MIAH [MAH] RILEY. The public cannot have forgotten that it was Mr. Ritey [Riley] who was the party who caused the question to be shelved who twice moved, when the question was before the Commissioners, that all consideration respecting it should be deferred for six months who refused to entertain a motion for ingniry [ingenuity] only as to the powers of the Commis- [Comms- Commissioners] sioners [sinners] in connection with gas-works who boldly proclaimed that the Commissioners had nought to do with gas-works and who would not there- [therefore] fore consent to the appointment of a Committee to consider the question, or to make inquiry and to collect facts. Unfortunately for the credit of the Board, as faithful representatives of the wants and wishes of the Rate-paying portion of the commu- [com- community] nity, [city] Mr. Ritey [Riley] succeeded in indoctrinating a majority of the Commissioners with his reasons and the conclusions to which those reasons led. No we must correct ourselves there. Mr. Ritey [Riley] had no reasons, beyond his own tpse [tose] dixit-that [Dixie-that] the Commissioners had nought to do with gas and the majority of the Commissioners did not require reasons for the conclusion to which it was evident preconcerted arrangement had brought them. Mr. Ritey [Riley] having succeeded in his motion; having induced the organized [organised] majority to adopt his plan for shelving the gas question having, for six months at least, laid the sprite of public-benefit- [benefit from] from-gas-consumption, [gas-consumption] which has so seriously dis- [disturbed] turbed [turned] the equanimity of the present gas-monopo- [gas-Mono- monopolists] lists; having got all his own way, even to the practical adoption of what he has since been pleased to call Birkby-law having got all this, surely Mr. Ritey [Riley] is content with his most eminent and most complete success. No he is not. From some cause or other, the Commissioner, who was the first to shelve the question, is the first to wn-shelve it The Com- [Commissioner] missioner who would have no inquiry-who would listen to no proposal of that nature-who main- [maintained] tained [gained] that the Commissioners had nought to do with gas-works, s the very first to inquire is the very first to seek to undo what he has so very lately been the means of accomplishing. How has this come about We will answer. Mr. Ritey, [Riley] not content with his enunciation of Rirkby [Birkby] law in the Commissioners' Rooms-that the Commissioners have nought to do with gas- [gasworks] works, -ventured into print with a volunteer defence of the present gas monopoly and in that defence he treated the public to another edition of Birkby law laying it down, and repeating it- [it that] that the Commissioners have no power to erect gas-works. That defence the Huddersfield Chronicle examined the reasons adduced by Mr. RILEY were canvassed over, and weighed and, above all, the famous Birkby law, which un- [qualified] qualifiedly enunciated that the Commissioners have no power to erect gas-works, was confronted and contrasted-not with what Mr. Ritzy now calls Chronicle law, -but with the law of the acts of parliament Mr. is appointed to exe- [execute] cute. If in that controversy Mr. Ritey [Riley] had the worst of it, it was not our fault. If Mr. Riney's [Riley's] reasons were unstable and unsound-if his con- [conclusions] clusions [conclusion] did not arise from sound and logical pre- [premises] mises-if [Miss-if -if] the famous Birkby law turned out on examination to be no law at all-Mr. has himself to blame, and not the Huddersfield Chronicle. His undertaking the controversy was avowedly a volunteer act of his own but having entered upon it we think he was bound to abide the issue hav- [have- having] ing entered the lists he was bound to fight the battle out, and not, when he finds his antagonist stronger than he had calculated, turn round and cry out for assistance. Yet this is what Mr. Ritzy is doing. This is the moving cause to his so soon turning his back upon himself, as once described a similar course of conduct, and of his seeking to unshelve [involve] the question he so lately was instrumental in shelving. Unable to maintain his own Birkby law, -that the Commissioners have no power to erect gas-works, -and unable to cope with what he calls Chronicle law, but which we call act of parliament law, he wishes for the aid of the organised majority of the Commissioners to help him out of the mess into which his imprudent. defence of the gas monopoly has landed him. Now, most people will be inclined to say that this is unfair. He should either have fought the battle out, or have gracefully retired from the contest. By the report to which we have before alluded, it will be seen that Mr. Ritey [Riley] wished at the last meeting to plunge medies [medics] ves [bes] into the very question he was only a week or two ago instrumental in placing on to the shelf. He said, his Birkby Law had been disputed; in the stead of Ais [Is] law, they had had Chronicle law; and he wanted to ask the Commissioners' Law Clerk, what was the law This course was very properly demurred to, because it was manifestly wnfair-manifestly [fair-manifestly] improper and especially so on the part of those who had re- [refused] fused to inquire in the only legitimate mode, by a committee appointed by the body of the Com- [Commissioners] missioners. Here upon it was moved by Mr. and carried by the majority, that the Law Clerk be requested to advise the Commissions at their next meeting, as to their power to levy a rate to erect work for the ing rent ga work purpose of supplying gas to Now with all due deference to the parties who carried this resolution, in the face of one they so lately carried, by which all consideration of the Gas Question was deferred for six months, we beg to tell them that their last resolve is an illegal one -is a nonentity. The organised majority had (foolishly we think) REsotvep, [restive] thatno [that no] consideration of the Gas Question should be, by them, had for six months. The 44th section of the Commissioners Clauses Act provides that no resolution of the Commissioners shall be revoked or altered at any subsequent meeting, unless notice of the intention to propose such renovation or alteration be given to each Commissioners seven days at least before holding the meeting; nor unless such revocation or alteration be determined upon by a majority con- [consisting] sisting [sitting] of two-thirds of the Commissioners present at such subsequent meeting, if the number present at such last meeting be not greater than the number present at the meeting at which such resolution was come to. Now, this asking the Law Clerk to advise the Commissioners respecti [respect] to erect Gas Works is a eons; Sons] ng their Question is a revocation of the of of the organised majority. Ang this ng which we would respectfully press on in 2 Dring of the minority-or they will find tha, [that] . vantage has been taken of them.
