On the hearse containing the coffin being taken out of the car- [carriage] riage, [ridge] the congreyated [congratulated] multitude took off their hats, while many were affected even to tears. They also accompanied the procession to the town of Tamworth, and many of them went all the way to Drayton Manor, a distance of two and a-half miles, The remains of the deceased reached his country residence about one o'clock. Mr. Frederick Peel 4is [is] son, and Mr. Lawrence Peel, his brother accompanied the hearse in a carriage. , The town of Tam orth [Tam North] on Saturday had a very sombre aspect. The blinds in private houses were drawn, and the shops partially closed throughout the whole place. Asa further token of respect for the memory of the deccased [deceased] statesman, the inhabitants will all go into mourning, as if they had each lost a personal friend. The churches and chupels, [chapels] too, are ali [al] to be hung in black cloth, while funeral sermons will be preached from all the pulpits of the place. On Friday night the inhabitanis [inhabitants] met in the Town-hall, Tamworth, to agree to an address of condolence to the family of the deceased. The place, as mizht [might] be expected was Crowded. The grief which pervaded every mind was visible in every countenance, as well as expressed in the tone and manner of the speakers. The mavor [Major] havine [having] called the meeting, presided over it. Among those present were Sir Charles Clarke, Bart., Gen. A'Court, and the Rev. Mr. Harston, vicar of the parish. The latter rev. gentle- [gentleman] man read the letter of condolence to the family of their late representative, the alloption [all option] of which was moved by Sir Charles Clarke. It is unnecessary to say that it was unanimously adopted by the meeting THE FUNERAL. (Freon the Tines of Wednesday ) Cn Tuesday afternoon, the mortal remains of Six Robert Peel were deposited in their last long resting-place. The honows [hows] of a public funcral, [funeral] and of havire [have] one's ashes mingled with those of the mighty dead in Westminster Abbey, have long been regarded as appropriate tributes to departed genius and patriotism. They formed the glorious alternative anticipated by Nelson when ahout [about] ta fight one of his most memerable [memorable] batties. [botties] The country has heretofore almost claimed for herself the privileze [privilege] of interring those children who have served her best, and of whom she feels most proud. The friends of Sir Robert Peel, however, at his own express desire, declined this honour, Nor, when the account of his funeral has been read to its close, do we think the wisdom or propriety of the course thus taken by hin [in] will be questioned. Grief can only be made imposing by its sincerity, and humility is the most becoming accom- [com- accompaniment] paniment [payment] of death. The unosteutatious [institutions] obsequies of a country gentleman gathered to his fathers amidst the regret and lamentatica [lamented] of his friends, neighbeurs, [neighbours] and dependents, were all that Sir Robert desired, and his wish has becn [been] sacredly complied with. In the quiet parish church of Drayton Bassett, where his father and mother were buried before him, the remains of the great statesman have been deposited. He has been followed to the tomb by a few chosen friends, wlose [close] names and reputation give to the ceremonial of his interment somewhat of a public character, but the mournful pieparations [preparations] and the funeral pomp did not exceed those limits appropriate to the de- [deceased] ceased in his private station, and in the proceedings there was no splendid pageantry of woe; everything was plain and simple, befitting the obsequies of a large landed pro- [proprietor] prietor, [proprietor] but nothing more. The sorrowing crowd of simple-minded rustics who yes- [yesterday] terday [yesterday] lined the avenues along which the funeral procession passed, furnished, indeed, one of the most remarkable fea- [fe- features] tures [Tues] of the proceedings. Thceve [These] they were assembled to see the great man who hed [he] lived among them for so many years carried out to his long home. Men, women, and children, all decently clad, though many of them in very homely attire, flocked towards the park several hours before the time appointed for the funeral had arrived. They came for the most part on foot, and from every point of the compass. A large proportion of them wore mourn- [mourning] ing, and their bearing and behaviour was exceedingly decorous and suitable to the occasion. A body of the county police were present to keep the main approach to the mansion clear fur the procession, so the people as they collected arranged themselves on either side of the avenue, within the light iron railings which separate it from the park. At intervals the meiancholy [melancholy] sound of the funeral bell from Tamworth Church fell upon the ear and, as if nature sympathized [sympathised] with the occasion, the sky became overcast with sombre clouds, and gusts of wind swept mournfully through the trees. The manor house, which is an extensive pile, surmounted by towers, and possessi [possess] considerable claims to architectural beauty, had all the ap- [appearance] pearance [appearance] of a house of sorrow. The windows were all closed against the light, and at the main entrance, which is situated within a scrt [secret] of courtyard, formed by the projec- [project- projection] tion [ion] of the picture gallery, were stationed, on either side of the doorway, two mutes, who received the visitors as they alighted. In an apartment adjoining the entrance, and called the Oak Parlour, lay the coftin, [coffin] covered with crimson velvet, and bearing a plain inscription of the name and age of the deceased. The hour fixed for the interment drew near, and the clock in the main tower pointed to one o'clock, when rain began to fall, at first in a slight drizzle, but soon after very heavily. Shortly after two o'clock the sky began to clear, and with as little delay as possible the funeral procession was formed. The following programme gives the order in which it was arranged, and from the details thus furnished it will be seen how simple and unos- [nos- ostentatious] tentatious [ostentatious] was the ceremonial by which the body of Sir Robert Peel was conveyed from the family mansion to the grave - Steward on horseback.

The tenantry and the corporation of Tamworth did not join the procession until it had made some little progress on its way. Conspicuous in the cortege was the hearse, with its waving plumes and the panels on which the heraldic ings of the deceased were emblazoned. Nor did the motto, Industria, Industrial, inscribed on the family escutcheon, fail to attract universal notice, vividly as it recalled the career of the de; statesman, his unwearied application to business, and his untiring activity of mind. The road which leads from the Manor-house to the parish church of Drayton Bassett is a rather circuitous one, but there is a short cut across the park, of which a large portion of the assemblage availed themselves, in order to witness, if possible, the close of the funeral rites, and at least to see ie enter the sacred edifice.

A few plain marble slabs, bearing upon them short inscriptions, are let into the. side walls, the most conspicuous of these being one which bears the followiig [following] simple inscription - In a vault beneath this church are deposited the remains of Sir Robert Peel, Bart., of Drayton Manor, and of Lady Peel his. wife, daughter of William Yates, Esq., of Bury, Lancashire. Robert was born 25th of April, 1759, and died 3rd May, 1830.. [W] Tady [Lady] Peel was born 5th March, 1766, and died 28th December, Their children have raised this monument to the their belovcd [believed] parents as a token of gratitude, Besides the tablets on its walls there are also four escut- [Ascot- escutcheons] cheons [chains] displayed there, conspicuous among which is the' coat of arms of the Peel family. Yesterday the aliar, [alias] the pulpit, and the pews usually occupied by Sir Robert's household were hung with black cloth. The family vault is entered by cn aperture within the porch. Such is the humble resting place for his ashes, which Sir Robert Peel deliberately prefered [preferred] to Westminster Abbey, with its rich Gothic embellishments and its splendid sepulchral asso- [ass- associations] ciations.

The procession having entered the church, the coffin was placed on a stand in the aisle, and the board of plumes laid upon it. The Bishop of Gibraltar then began, ina very solemn manner, and amidst the most reverential to read the funeral service of the church. At last -the proper moment for doing so having arrived-the coffin was removed from its stand in the centre of the aisle, and slowly lowered into the vault, and the Bishop, moving forward to the mouth of the vault, read the affecting and beautiful language of the Church in a voice which at many points became broken with emotion. The members of Sir Robert's family, leaving their seats, gathered round the grave oi their relative, and amidst many a tear, which those who shed them endeavoured in vain to check' or hide, the solemn words were pronounced, 'Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. When the reading of the service was concluded the sons of the deceased advanced to the mouth of the vault, and each in his turn took a last farewell. Thus terminated the funeral of Sir Robert Peel. Those who have been always accustomed to regard him in the light of a public man will attribute to general considerations the decision which induced him to prefer a quiet resting place in the parish church of Drayton Bassett to the honours with which parliament and the crown were anxious to celebrate his obsequies; but, perhaps, other motives had a' share in influencing his conduct. Sir Robert was passion- [passionately] .ately [lately] fond of a country life, and withdrew to Tamworth after the fatigues of his parliamentary services with all the keen enjoyment of youth. He had not only liked the country for the pleasures it af- [afforded] orded, [order] but for the business cecupations [occupation] which italso [it also] supplied. The pressure of public duties, great as it must have been, was not allowed to betray him into negligence of his pri- [pro- private] vate [ate] affairs, and the same iudustrious, [industrious] investigating, and cautious spirit which he brought with him to the concerns of the nation he carried into the management of his estates. His principal property extends westward from the Manor- [Manor house] house, which is almost on its verge, but he has left detached estates all round the neighbourhood, besides that at Black- [Blackburn] burn, in Lancashire. The inheritance which he has left to his children is a splendid one, but one which still remains to be filled up to the scale on which the purchases origi- [origin- originally] nally [ally] made were calculated. Wealth, however, he has not aloxe [alone] bequeathed to them-he has left them his great name and reputation to uphold, and his private virtues and patriotism, if not to rival, at least to imitate. Among the personal friends of the late Sir Robert Peel present at the interment yesterday, we observed Mr. Sid- [Sidney] ney [ne] Herbert. It is almost needless to say, that at Tam-- [Tam] worth during the entire day business was completely suspended, the shop doors and windows being closed, and the inhabitants in mourning. The banner of the Towns- ends waved half-mast high from the castle, and every mark of respect was exhibited by the towns-people to the me- [memory] mory [more] of their deceased representative. It has, we hear, been determined to offer the vacant seat for the borough to his heir, the third Sir Robert Peel. THE PROVINCES. From almost every provincial town of importance, we have but one expression of feeling at the national loss which has been sustained by the death of Sir Robert Peel. In Birmingham, on Tuesday, business was entirely suspended in many parts of the town in all quarters it was partially so. The shops were closed, the banks and other public institutions were partially so, and the blinds of the hotels and private dwellings were drawn. The mufiled [filed] bells of the different churches were tolled. At Manchester the occasion was observed as a day of sorrow by a partial closing of almost every shop in the principal streets, and by the tolling of the bells in the cathedral and other churches of the city and neighbourhood. Most of thesho [these] in the principal thoroughfares of Liverpool, were partially closed on Tuesday, and at some of the churches muffled peals were rung. On the different public buildings the flags were hoisted half-mast high. e same marks of respect. were paid to the memory of the deceased baronet at Derby, Wolverhampton, Bristol, and in his native town, Bury, a public meeting of the inhabitants was convened at the Court-house, to determine upon erecting 2 monument, or adopting some other testimonial of respect, to the memory of their lamented townsman. PROPOSED STATUF [STATUE] TO SIR ROBERT PEEL IN LEEDS.-The first outward appearance of a movement in Leeds to do due honour to the memory of the late Sir Robert Peel, took place on Wednesday. The preliminaries have been taken for the formation of a committee, with a view to the erection of a public statue in Leeds, to perpetuate the memory of the late Sir Rohert [Robert] Peel, and we trvst [trust] that the spirit with which the subject will be taken up will be such as will not only be creditable to Leeds, but do befitting honour to the distinguished statesman whose name it is intended to commemorate. MARK OF RESPECT IN THE FRENCH ASSEMBLY. The following remarkable tribute was paid to the late Sir Robert Peel, on Friday, in the French Assembly. At the opening of the sitting, M. Dupin, [Turpin] the President, rose and said- [said gentlemen] Gentlemen, at the moment when a neighbouring people, our ally, deplores the loss which it has just experienced in the person of one of its statesmen most worthy of esteem, I think it will be to confer honour on the French tribune to express our sympa- [sympathy- sympathetic] thetic [the tic] regret on this occasion, and to manifest our high esteem for the eminent orator alluded to; who, during the whole course of his long and glorious career, has never expressed any senti- [sent- sentiments] ments [rents] towards France but those of kind feeling and justice, and whose lan; [an] has always been that of courtesy towards her Government. Ifthe [If the] Assembly deigns to approve of my words, mention shall be made of the fact on the minutes of our sittings. Marks of assent arose from every part of the Assembly, and some time elapsed before the business of the day was proceeded with. IMMEDIATE CAUSE OF DEATH. (From the Lancet.) Before the fatal accident which befel [befell] the universally de- [deplored] plored [deplored] Sir R. Peel, the right hon. baronet had not been in his usual health. For a week or two he had looked unusually pale and languid; but on the oceasion [occasion] of his speech in the debate on the foreign policy of the govern- [government] ment, [men] delivered on the morning of the fatal injury, he looked well and vigorous his address was admired by the whole house, and he exhibited no deficiency whatever of mental power or spirit. It has been rumoured that Sir Robert fell from his horse in an epileptic seizure, and that in his convulsive clutchings [clutching] of the rein, his horse stumbled, and fell upon him. But there is, we are assured, on the best authority, no truth whatever in this story of an epileptic fit. Nothing of the kind was observed by those persons who were near him at the moment of the accident, nor did any of the subsequent symptoms point in the least degree to such an occurrence. The fall was accidental, and the subsequent insensibility was doubtless caused entirely by the shock of the injury. It is of importance, we should observe, that we have the best authority for stating that Sir Robert Peel never in his life had a symptom which in- [indicated] dicated [dictated] any affection of the brain. As soon as surgical aid was procured, it was found that there was a comminuted fracture of the left clavicle, with considerable swelling from the first, which, together with the excruciating pain of the whole shoulder, rendered a minute examination extremely difficult. A swelling as large as the hand might cover, subsequently formed below the fractured clavicle, which pulsated to the touch syn- [synchronously] chronously [Chronicle] with the action of the heart. When examined carefully by the eye, it was found that the movement of this tumour corresponded with the contractions of the auricle, and was, in some respects, similar to the pulsa- [pulse- pulsations] tions [tins] observed in the veins of the neck in very thin persons, and in certain forms of venous regurgitation. It' was evident, from these signs, that some vein beneath the' clavicle, probably the subclavian, had been wounded by the broken bone at the time of the fall and that su vicular [circular] swelling consisted of blood effused from the wounded vessel. It was also evident that the swelling was in this way connected with the heart, what might be called a diffused false venous aneurism. [mannerism] is was all that could be ascertained positively. Sir Robert Peel was well known to be of a gouty habit, and he was at all times extremely sensitive to physical pain. His sufferings during the whole of his brief illness were of the most isi [is] kind. This might have arisen from the laceration of some nerves converging beneath the collar-bone, to form the tition [petition] of that operation. At the west end there is lit After death, one or two of the ribs on the left side were found to be fractured, which had not been detected during e. The injuries we have referred to would have been sufficient to cause death in such a subject but there may 'possibly have been further injury or disease, resulting from the accident, within the chest. This, however, was, as we have said, extremely difficult to make out. From conside- [consider- consideration] ration to the feelings and the express wishes of Lady Peel and her children, no examination of the body has taken place, so that what we have stated is probably the sum of all that will ever be known of the cause of the death of this illustrious statesman but. upon the authenticity of what we have now placed before them, our readers may rely most implicitly. eo POOR MAN'S MONUMENT TO THE MEMORY OF THE LATE SIR ROBERT PEEL. A committee of tradesmen has been formed in London for the purpose of raising a fund for the erection of a poor man's monument to the memory of the late Sir Robert Peel, the subscription to be limited to one penny each per- [person] son, and to be extended to the whole kingdom. It is intended that the fund (as every 20 is received) shall be paid into the Bank of England to the names of the trustecs, [trustees] namely, Joseph Hume, Esq, M.P.,-Right Hon. W. E. Gladstone, M.P., Lord John Russell, M.P., Sir James Graham, M.P., Viscount Hardinge, [Harding] and John Masterman Esq., M.P., or three of them. In answer to a request made to Mr. Cobden, that he would permit his name to be used as one of the patrons of an association for raising, by ore penny subscriptions, a Poor Man's National Monument to the memory of the late Sir Robert Peel, the hon. member has addressed te following sensible and noble response to the Editor of the Tvmes [Times Times] 103, Westbourne-terrace, July 6. Sir,-I have received your letter, requesting me to allow my uname [name] to be used as one of the patrons of an associaticn [association] for raising by 1d. subscriptions, a poor man's national monument to the memory of the late Sir Robert Peel. It will be to me a melancholy satisfaction to be associated in so appropriate a mode of expressing the almost universal feeling of sorrow at.the loss of a great a public benefactor. The illustrious statesman who has been taken from us with such awful suddenness, sacrificed every other object of ambition to secure to the firesides and workshops of the toiling multitudes of this country, the blessings of increased Frosperity, [Prosperity] health and happiness. He knew the immediate ' penalty he would have to pay for the service he was render- [rendering] ing the nation, but he relied with prophetic faith upon the future verdict of the people. In the moment of his severest trial, when delivering the speech which closed his official career, after speaking of the ties of party which he had severed for ever, of the political friendships he had con. verted [averted] into bitter enmities, of the floodgates of calumny he had let loose, upon himself-after recounting, moum- [mum- manfully] fully but without' repining, the sacrifices he had made, he turned for sympathy and justice to the mass of the peonle [people] and i his last speech as Minister with the following words -- It may be that I shall leave a name sometimes remembered with expression of good will in the abo-le [ab-le] of those whose lot it is to labour and to earn their daily bread by the sweat of their brow, when they sball [ball] recruit their strength with abundant and untaxed food, the sweeter because it is no longer leavened by a sense of injustice. Thus, in the work you have undertaken, you are, per- [perhaps] haps, unconsciously realizing the aspirations of the de- [departed] parted statesman. In piling up the pence of the working classes into a pyramid to his memory, let me suggest that the above passage be inscribed upon its base. It will prove that he did not over estimate the justice or gratitude of his countrymen, and it will also show to future statesmen that there is security, with the people, for the fame of a Minister who braves the vengeance of particular interests whilst conferring benefits upon the nation. I am, Sir, your obedient servant, RicHaRD [Richard] COBDEN, To Mr. John Downes. The following letter from Mr. Joseph Hume has also appeared in the London papers - Sir,-By the enclosed you will perceive that a committce [committee] of tradesmen has been formed for the purpose of raising a fund for the erection of a poor man's monument, to the memory of Sir Robert Peel, the sybscription [subscription] to be limited to one penny each person, the money to be paid into the Bank of England in the name of trustces. [trustees] Iam [I am] anxious to give the earliest information, through the press, of ihis [his] intention, believing that the working classes throughout .the country will manifest their readiness to join in paying a deserved tribute of respect and gratitude to a distin- [distinct- distinguished] guished [gushed] statesman, who did so much for them and for their country. Ishall [Shall] be ready to forward the object by every means in my power. I remain, sir, your obedient servant, JOsEPH [Joseph] HUME. Bryanston-square, July 5, 1850. 2 DEATH OF HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE. The public mind within the last few days has been gradually prepared for the mournful intelligence which is now at length communicated, namely, that the illustrious uncle of our beloved Sovereign has been removed from the vicissitudes and sufferings of this earthly scene. For some time past the illness of the Royal Duke has excited much anxiety with regard to its issue, but the following bulletin published on Monday morning still further increased the 'apprehension -- Cambridge House, July 8. The Duke of Cambridge was in a very exhausted state during the night, but His Royal Highness has rallied con- [considerably] siderably [considerably] this morning. FRANCIS HAWKINS, M.D. THOMAS Watson, M.D. RICHARD BRicuHtT, [Bright] M.D. ' ROBERT KEATE, [KATE] Ch. HENRYSTANHOPE ILLINGWORTH, Ch. In the early part of the same morning, His Royal High- [Highness] ness Prince George of Cambridge went from his father's residence to Buckingham Palace, where he had an inter- [interview] view with the Queen; and about mid-day her Majesty and Prince Albert retwned [returned] with him to Cambridge House, retiring again about an hour afterwards, when the following notice was issued - Lord Chamberlain's Office, July 8, 1850. Notice is hereby given, that owing to the alarming ill- [illness] ness of His Royal Highness the Duke of Cambridge, the drawing room intended to be held by Her Majesty at St. James's Palace to-morrow, the 9th instant, and the state ball at Buckingham Palace, on Wednesday next, the 10th instant, will not take place. The next bulletin announced the death of his Royal Highness, and was couched in the following terms - 'Cambridge House, July 8, 1850, 10 o'clock p.m. Royal Highness the Duke of Cambridge, after passing a tranquil day, expired somewhat suddenly, and without suffering, at twenty minutes before 10 o'clock. Intelligence was immediately conveyed to the palace by Baron Knesebeck, [Horseback] when the Queen and Prince Albert set out instantly to Cambridge House to pay a visit of condo- [condolence] lence [Lance] to Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge and his Royal Highness Prince George. The deceased Prince Adolphus Frederick, who was the seventh and youngest son of George III, had completed the 76th year of his age, having been born on the 24th of February, 1774. In the 13th year of his age he was, with his two elder brothers, the Dukes of Cumberland and Sussex, sent to the University of Gottingen, [Getting] where he was entered on the 6th of July, 1786. The Duke of Cambridge remained at Gottingen [Getting] only three years, at the end of which riod [rid] he became an officer in the British army, having heen [hen] gazetted an ensign in the sixteenth year of his age, but it was not until 1793 that he came to reside in England. In the same year he came to England (1793) [W] he served for a short time with the British forces before Dun- [Dunkirk] kirk, receiving nine wounds in the action. In 1794 he attained the rank of Colonel, and on the year following was raised to the dukedom of Cambridge with a salary of 12,000 per annum, which was subsequently increased to 27,000. On the 24th of August, 1798, he was madea [made] Lieut.-General, being then only 24 years of age. The young Prince was an ardent supporter of Mr. Pitt's principles, and the King's government was disposed to ive [vie] him every opportunity of distinguishing himself in the he had Sheen. y In 1803 he was sent at the head of 8,000 Germans and 6,000 English to defend the electoral dominions of his father against the French. The Hanove- [Have- Hanoverians] rians, [rains] however, did not much like the connection with England, and a proclamation by his Royal Highness urging them to rise en masse having failed of effect, he gave up in disgust and returned to England, leaving the army under the command of Colonel Walmoden, [Walton] who was soon obliged to capitulate. Immediately on the formation of the German Legion the Duke of Cambridge was appointed to its command, having been raised to the rank of general on the 25th of September, 1803, and appointed colonel of the Coldstream Guards on the 5th of the same month, in the year 1805. ighness [Highness] became viceroy, and continued in this 1837, when Ernest, Duke of Cumberland, succeeded to that kingdom. The government of the viceroy was, on the whole, avery [very] happy one, and many useful reforms were introduced by him. On the 26th of November, 1813, the Duke of Cambridge was raised to the rank of field-marshal in the army, and in consequence of the death of the Princess Charlotte he, like many other members of the royal family, contracted a matrimonial alliance. At Cassel, [Case] on the 7th of May, and in London on the Ist [Its] of June, 1818, he was united to Augusta Wilhelmina Louisa, the third daughter of the Landgrave [Land grave] Frederick of Hesse-Cassel, [Hesse-Case] a princess then in the 2Ist [list] year of her age, who now survives him. By this marriage he had one son and two daughters. When her majesty, Victoria, acceded to the throne, the Duke of Cambridge took up his permanent residence in is country, renewing his former friendly relations with the higher classes of society, and lending his name and influence to a multitude of philanthropic and benevolent projects. Many of the religious and benevolent societies val Mourn his loss as that of a firm, generous, and well proved friend. His private life was irreproachable, and he will descend to the grave amidst the tful [full] remem- [rem- remembrances] brances [branches] of the nation, to whom he was endeared by his numerous personal virtues and public excellencies. Upon the expulsion of the French from Hanover his arg [ag] Wootten [Wooden] Manuractures.-The [Manufacturers.-The] declared value of the exports of woollen manufactures from the united kingdom during the year 1849 was, according to a re- [return] turn just published, 7,342,723. The quantities of sheep and lamb's wool imported during the same year amounted to 75,113,347lb., and the quantities re-ex- [exported] ported to 12,324,415lb. The quantities of British sheep and lamb's wool exported in 1849 amounted to 11,200,472Ib., and of British woollen and worsted yarn, including that which is mixed with other materials, 11,778,0201b. were exported. The imports of Alpeca [Alpaca] and Llama wool, in 1849, amounted to 1,655,300lb., and the quantities re-exported to Of mohair, or plexus a complication which, as is well known, sometimes occurs from severe fractures in this situation, q ry goat's wool, 2,536,0391b. were imported, the quantities re-exported being 130,1451b. [W,b] me 3 THE MEMORIAL ON THE GAS QUESTION. On a former occasion we promised our readers that we would publish the list of names attached to the memorial recently presented to the Improvement Com- [Commissioners] missioners by Commissioner Moore. We now subjoin the form of memorial, together with the signatures of the parties whose names are thereunto appended - The Memorial of the undersigned Inhabitants and Rate- [Ratepayers] payers of the town and neighbourhood of Huddersfield. To the Huddersfield Improvement Commissioners. Sheweth, [shewed] -That your memorialists [memorials] have learned with that a motion is to be introduced to the atten- [attend- attention] tion [ion] of the Improvement Commissioners, haviny [having] for its object the erection or the purchase of gos [God] works by the That your memorialists [memorials] trust that the commissioners will take the necessary steps to carry out the said object, as their doing so is calculated to realise great bencfit [benefit] to the town, and save money in the pockets of the ratepayers, which they would otherwise have to pay in the shape of rates. That the experience of other towns, where 23-works are in the hands of public bodies of authority, and the applied in aid of the rates, shows that the aforesaid caleu- [clue- calculation] lation [nation] is not without foundation for in the borenea [Browne] of Manchester upwards of 30,000 per annum net (after payment of all expenses and interest on eapitai) [apt] are realised in Salford upwards of 6,600; and in Rocha between 1,800 and 1,900-the 1,W-the] whele [while] of which immense sums are spent in public improvements, and in aid of the public rates. Your memorialists [memorials] hope that the Improvement Conimis- [Coniston- Commissioners] stoners will not neglect to take the necessary sions [Sons] to seeure [secure] a similar benefit for Huddersfield, by either erecting gas works, or purchasing at a fair valuation the existing works.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIULD [HUDDERSFIELD] CHRONICLE. Sin,-A writer in last week's Chroniele-' [Chronicle] Ono whys wants a pew -has, mith [Smith] more courage than is seem re corded his discontent in your columns, at his four month's want of success in obtaining a comfortable sittiny [sitting] in ow parish church, and, even yet, with no frther [further] pro nect [pro cent] succ [such] eding. ending] 2 complains, also, that divine service is not at St. Paul's church onSunday [Sunday] evenings, and heis, [his] iu conse- [cone- consequence] quence, [Queen] prevented from taking sittings and there. When a person is disposed to grumble-anil [grumble-ail] I readily admit that grumbling is the natural right of overy [over] Englishman-a poor excuse in doing so is better than none; and, from the tone of your correspondent's letter, it is plainly evident that he is determined to exercise his natural right. With your permission, Mr. Editor, I will point out to him a way of making himself more comfortable in f ture, [true] and which I am sure he may put into practice if his religcon [religion] be equal to his pretended desire to yo to chive'. There are several pews to let at St. Paul's Church, and the churchwardens at that place will be glad to accommulate [accommodate] anew comer. There your complainant may find the ritual of the Church of England administered in ail its purity, anc [an] the whole ceremonial administered in the true spirit of the age. And he will have the privilege of attending divine service-morning and afternoon. Then, in the evenin, [evening] he will have full opportunity of attending service at tho Parish Church, and I will engage to say that in any pew in which he may see vacant room-and the vergers will gladly aid him in his efforts-such is the liberality of the congresa- [Congress- congregation] tion, [ion] that he will not find a pew door closed against him. I would remind him too, that in that edifice there are L000 [L] sittings free and unappropriated for ever; and if One who wants a pew will attend, early, and either fe or his family (be it never so large) the probabilities are in his duvour [Dover] that he wil find ample accommodation. Your correspondent is decidedly in error in pointing ont our Parish Church as a place where pews are boucht [bought] ana sold as so much merchandise, to the exclusion of the parishioners, for its doors are open on the Sabbath to alt; and all who will, may come and welcome.

A Lavy [Lay] Cor to Preces.-An [Prices.-An] accident of a truly appalling character occurred on the York and Sear- [Borough] borough Railway on Thursday last, by which a lady of independence, named Martin, met with a terrible death. It appeared she had been staying at Holgate, near York, and left her residence between three and four o'clock, with the intention of taking a walk along the banks of the River Ouse. [Use] Soon afterwards she was observed by a gentleman walking on the railway near the viaduct which crosses tht [the] stream in question, and at the same time a train was approaching at a rapid rate towards York. She remained evidently unconscious of its coming up, having her parasol before her, and was walking leisurely along the permanent way between the line of rails until the engine-driver gave the whistle alarm, which attracted her attention, when seeing her - danger she turned round and ran back with the inten- [intend- intention] tion [ion] of escaping. Unfortunately, however the train was too close upon her, for in the her body. She was mangled fact, was literally cut to y ed; ieces.
