8 THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, JULY 13, 1850. THE ASSAULT ON THE QUEEN. TRIAL OF THE PRISONER AT THE CENTRAL CRIMINAL COURT. morning, according to previous arrange- [arrange me] me te arial [trial] of Pate, for striking at her Majesty, enced [ended] at ten o'clock, before Baron Alderson, Mr. Justice Patieson, [Paterson] and Mr. Justice Talfourd. [Balfour] The court was crowded in all parts, and also an unusually large attendance of gentlemen of the long robe, while on the bench, and in other convenient parts of the court, a - numerous bevy of fashionably-attired ladies were accom- [com- accommodated] modated [moderate] with seats. The prisoner, on being placed in the dock. had very much the same appearance as when formerly examined. He was dressed, as before, in a blue surtout buttoned up to the neck, and seemed to be but little concerned at the situation he found himself in. He stood firm and erect, with his hands behind him, and his whole demeanour and bearing was that of 2 military man. He was described in the calendar as Robert Pate, aged 30, gentleman, and the charge against him was thus stated- Unlawfully and with a stick striking the person of our lady the Queen, with intent to injure our said lady the Queer. Upon being called upon in the usual form, he pleaded Not guilty Fee eee [see] General the Solicitor-General, Mr. 1 a ape j Mr. Clark appeared for the Welsby, [Welsh] Mr. Bodkin, and Bir. [Sir] appearec [appeared] 'an prosecution and hr. Cockburn, QC., wita [with] wnom [whom] was Mr. Huddlestone, defended the prisoncr. [prisoner] Tac ATTORNEY-GENSRALbriefly opened the case for the tion, [ion] and then proceeded to call Colonel Grey (an equerry to her Majesty), Mr. Robert Renwick (acr [ac] Majesty's Sergeant-footman), James Silver, police officer, Mr. Coling, [Colin] bookseller, residing in and Sir Jamcs [James] Clark, physician to the Quecn, [Queen] who were severally examined, and whose evidence-already given in our columns, formed the charge against the prisoner. Mr. Cockpurx [Cockspur] proceeded to address the jury for the defence, contending that his dient [diet] had struck her Majesty, being at te time of unsound mind. In proof of this the learned gentleman remarked that, in 1841, his client jomed [domed] the 10th Hussars 1n Ireland, and up to a particular period, which he should presently refer to, he performed all the duties of an officer to the satisfac- [satisfaction- satisfaction] tion [ion] of his superiors. He was very much attached to guinals, [guineas] and had two favourite horses and a dog. The dog, while suffering fro n an attack of bydropsobia, [drops] bit the two horses, and eventually they died in a state of ichtful [frightful] madness. This circumstance so affected his mind that he gloomy and strange in his man- [manner] ner. [ne] His father, however, having heard of the loss, sent him over to Dublin a very valuable horse but be- [before] fore it. reached there the prisoner, without saying any- [anything] thing to his groom or servants, quitted Dublin and came over to London, where he was met by some of his frieids. [friends] His manner appeared to them so wild and extravazant [extravagant] that they persuaded iim [him] to go down to his father's house, where he became still inore [ignore] outrageous in his behaviour. He declared to his father that the reason he had left Dublin was that the cooxs [cooks] and mess of his regiment had entered into a conspiracy to poison him. His friends, however, succeeded in disabusing his mind of this delusion, and he returned to Dublin, but he Lad been there long before he sent word to his fati.er [father] that his inside was filled with brickbats. His father immediaicly [immediately] repaired to Dublin, and consulted Dr. Murray, tue surgeon of the regiment, upon the state oi his son's health. The general impression then was that Le was harmless and light-headed, nothing more, aud [and] his fathcr [father] allowed him to reinain [refrain] in Dublin. Shortly afterwards the prisoner again catne [cane] to London, aud, [and] without conununicating [communication] with his father or his fricnds, [friends] he sold his commission, and went to live in Geriman-street. [German-street] Here his habits were of the most re- [regular] gulur [glue] character he always diessed [dressed] the same both in Winter aud [and] suminer, [Sumner] kept regular hours, and, sirange [strange] to say, for fiftecn [fifteen] months, at four o'clock in the day, no maticr [mature] what the weather was, wet or dry, he weat [West] in tae [tea] same cab, which was a Hausom, [Hansom] to Putney- [Uncommon] common, where ie would remain for an hour aj a smali [small] pouud [pound] without any apparert [appeared] purpose. His conduct in the cab was always violent and strange. After this he weat [West] to live in Duke-strect, [Duke-street] where his conduct was equally preposterous and silly, while his mode of con- [conducting] ducting himself ia the street, and the manner in which he threw his arms about was so utterly at variance with the practice of a sane man, that the police had long kept a watch over him. The prisoner remained unmoved during the address of bis learned counsel; indeed, he appeared to pay no attention to it, but devoted his attention to scrutmizing [scrutiny] the people in court. li support of the plea of insanity Colonel John Baudely, [Badly] of the 10th Hussars, deposed, among other things, tiat [that] after an accident which occurred to the prisoner's horses, he noticed a change in his conduct. The prisoner, he observed, was of a very sensitive dis- [disposition] position, and he felt hurt as his father had made a claiin [lain] upor [upon] his brother officer for the loss of his horses, whose death were occasioned by the bite of a brother dog. The dog belonged to Major Wallington. He never aiver [liver] that period took much intercst [interest] in his pro- [profession] fession, [session] but continually took long walks in the wild dis- [districts] tricts. [tracts] On onc [on] occasion he complained to me of being unwell, and could get no relief from the medical officer ef the regiment. I asked him what was the matter wita [with] hin, [in] and he said his bowels were full of bricks, and the doctor had not the skill to remove them. He was cousiantiy [county] on the sick list after this. On another occasion I sent him with a detachment from Newbridge to Dublin, with orders to return on the following day. He. however, did notreturn, [not return] and Lundoerstood [Understood] that he went to England. This was an offence of a serious character, and I felt it to be my duty to communicate with the Adjutant-General on the subject. He returned to the about nine or ten days, when he appeared very wild, and could give no account of himsclf. [himself] I, there- [therefore] fore felt it to be my duty to make a representaticn [representation] to his father on the subject of his sanity. Two months after he left the regiment. . In support of the above statements, Captain Firth, Sir Thomas Munro, Thomas Pern, [Per] George Pitt, and Thoma [Thomas Martin, al of the 1 th Hussars, were examined, and gave itas [its] their impression that the prisoner was insane at the time he left that regimont, [regiment] Mr. Robert Francis Pate, examined by Mr. Cockburn. I am tlie [tie] father of the prisozcr, [prisoner] I remeimber [remember] his leaving the regaacrt [regret] when ii was in Ireland. He came down to me at Wisbeachn, [Wabash] and said he came away withcut [without] orders. I was astonished to see him, and asked what was the occasion. He said le had been hunted about the pubice [public] streets in Dublin, and liad [had] seen the carce [care] people waiting for han. [an] He therefors [therefore] made his escape, and got to London in a vessel coring to Liverpocl, [Liverpool] I could net let bim [bi] remain with me, and I told Lin he miust [must] return directly to the resiment, [regiment] as I did not know what might be the consequence. I was afraid he would be shot and he proiised [promised] to go back the next morning. He did go, and afterwards I received a letter from his colonel advising me to take him out of the regiment. He came again to London, where I met him. After he had beea [been] in London some little time he sold bis com- [commission] 1uission [mission] without my knowledge. When I heard of this Tegain [Train] came to London, and ascertained that he bad sold out for 1,800. About a year and a half after- [afterwards] wards received a communication from a medical man, Which induced me to come to London. I found him in Duke-street, and his manner was so strange that I con- [consulted] sulted [suited] Dr. Connolly about the state of his mind. In the iny [in] daughter came to town, and Dr. Conuolly [Connolly] advised me not to take steps to confine hin [in] Bhile [While] lis [is] sister was in town. Dr. Connolly did not see mn, Cross-examined by the Arroryry-GexrraL- [Aurora-General- Generalship] When my sci came to me in 1844 he told me that he had lef [le] without leave. We had very little conversation, as I was anxious that he should retum. [return] When I ascer- [ace- ascertained] tained [gained] ihat [that] he had sold out, he told me that he gos [God] 1,800 for his commission, aud [and] should have 1,200 left when he had paid his debts. I seldom saw him, but heard of him through a Doctor Starkie. He al. mars appcared [appeared] to be unsettled ard [ad] uncomfortable. I id net know how to go about to get him into an asy- [as- aside] dui, [Du] but I always felt that he must go into oxe. [one] soe [se] was 2fraid [afraid] he would be shot for leay- [lea- Lea] 6 regunent, [Regent] and I iold [old] him so. He said he could not help it if he was. Charles Dodwin, [Window] formerly in the while the 10th Hussars, spoke to several peculiarities abcut [about] tire prisoner which induced him to consider that he was insane. Mr. James Storton [Starting] (a and friend of the family,) the Burlington 'Arcade Beadle the O'Gorman Mahon, LP. theRey. [there] Charles Disece [Disease] (Lec [Le] a. 3 Charles Biseoe, [Bis] (Lec- [Le- Lecturer] turer [Turner] of Bow Church.) were next exe mined, and from personal experience spoke in positive terns of tie aH sone s [one s] insanity, judging frora [fora] his geneval [general] conducs [conduct] aud [and] dez neanour. [de neon] Dr. Connolly examined by Mr. Cocksury-I [Cockspur-I] am a physician, and have devoted my attention very much to insanity. Iam [I am] physician to the Hanvell [Handel] Lunatic Asy- [As- Asylum] lun. [Lung] I was applied to by his family last November when his previous habits were desciibed [described] to me, and thinking he was improving in them by going into so- [society] ciety, [city] I recommended that no steps should be taken to irritate him, I have seen him since he has been in custody, and in my opinion he is of unsound mind. I form that opinion in a considerable degree from the conversations I have had with him. In his present state he presents an exaraple [example] of a person of very slender mental power, of no ambition, and altogether unfit for any ont oflife. [life] In conversation he is able to thiuk [think] ne is a right and wrong, but otherwise I He oe His disposition is frivolous and idle. By the Court. Has he as an jon [on] -- y us10n [using] in' himself the Emperor of Such as fancying but he canned-He does not deny having done this, to have acted 'ie account of it whatever. He seems under some strange morbid impulse, ihad [had] five inter by Mr. have prosecu [pros ecu] net ews [es] with the pri [pro] ince h n prisoner since he has been T have 122204 from my observation of him, and what unsound mind. Foz [For] certainly believe him to be of aie [are] eps [es] I have had an ac- [delusion] delusion, 4,and certainly then -He was doing wrong i .. Ware, perhaps, that he was ote [ot] he certain iy is apse of vertheless, [worthless] suffering from morbid rong, [ring] but he is, ne- [mere] Re-examined-His [examined-His] whole history induces me to be- [believe] lieve [liver] that he is decidedly insane. Mr. Baron ALDERSON remarked that that was a ques- [question] tion [ion] which must be left for the jury and court to decide. So long as he remained on the bench he would not allow medical men to take upon themselves the func- [fund- functions] tions [tins] of the court and jury. Dr. Munro had only given his opinion he was not aware that he had done wrong. This was the defence. a . The ATTORNEY-GENERAL replied, reminding the jury that if they were of opinion that the prisoner was Inca- [Incapable] pable [able] of distinguishing between right and wrong, he would be subjected to imprisonment for life, while, they found otherwise, the punishment would be of a more minor character. Mr. Baron ALDERSON, in summing up the case, told the jury that there could be no doubt as to the fact that the prisoner struck her Majesty with some degree of violence, and therefore the whole question to be de- [decided] cided [sided] turned upon the state of mind he was in at the time the act was done. Now, it was clear the prisoner was in his sound senses to-day, and it was for him to prove that he was of unsound mind when he committed the offence. Now had the evidence proved that The jury must take this as the law, that before they could acquit a prisoner on the ground of insanity, they must be satisfied that the prisoner's insanity induced the com- [committal] mittal [mutual] of the offence he was charged with. It was a delusion to suppose that insanity necessarily rendered a man dispunishable [dis punishable] for an unlawful act; before that state ef things could exist it must be shown that the disease of the mind under which tho prisoner laboured rendered him incapable of judging between right and wrong, or whether at the time he was betrayed into the act he knew that the act was a wrong and unlawful act for him todo. [too] Now did the evidence adduced for the offence accord with those principles True, at one period the prisoner appeared to have laboured under a particular delusion, but although that delusion might have been a very good defence, were they trying this unfortunate gentleman for the murder of the messman, [Mossman] it was no more a defence to this case than it would have been a defence to an action had he seduced his neighbour's wife at the time the de- [delusion] lusion [Lotion] prevailed. A man might be insane on one sub- [subject] ject, [jet] and sane on every other, and if he committed an unlawful act, which could have no possible reference to the particular point of delusion, it by no means followed that he was irresponsible for it on the ground of insanity. These were the principles which ought to guide the jury in disposing of the present defence. The learned judge, after recapitulating the evidence, commenting upon it as he went along, left it for the jury to say whethcr [whether] they were clearly satisfied that the prisoner was suffering from a disease of the mind, which in- [incapacitated] capacitated [incapacitated] him from judging whether the act which he had committed was right or wrong for him todo. [too] If they were convinced that he was unconscious of what he wasabout, [was about] they must acquit him; but onthe [other] otherhand, [other hand] aithough [although] they might believe him to be an eccentric character, which made it a matter of regret that he had not been better care taken of, yet, if they thought he was sufficiently sane to distinguish between right and wrong they must convict him accordingly. The jury retired at twenty minutes past three and did not return into court until five minutes past seven, when they gave a verdict of Guilty. The prisoner was immediately called up for judgment. Baron ALDERSON addressed him to the following effect Robert Pate, the jury have found you guilty after a very long and patient inquiry, and there can be no reason- [reasonable] able doubt that they have come toa [to] right conelusion. [conclusion] At the same time it is quite clear that you are a person of very eccentric habits, and in some degree differing from other men, and it is probable that it has pleased God to visit you with some mental affliction, for which you are to be pitied. The offence you have committed, uiowever, [however] is one of a very serious and important cha- [ca- character] racter. [Carter] You have been found guilty of striking a woman, which, fora soldier, is a very shocking thing ; but when it is considered that this woman was your it was a lady entitled to the respect of the whole country by her virtues and her exalted position, that act, which in an ordinary case would be a very serious offence, under these circumstances becomes truly heinous. How could it happen that you, a soldier of the country, could insult one beloved by all on account, not only of her exalted station but by her domestic virtues Yet she was the object of your attack, and whom you in- [insulted] sulied [slide] by a blow. Considering the station of your family and your own position, the court will not inflict the disgraceful punishment of whipping upon you. The court has some respect for you, though you had no respect for others. It will still, however, be its duty to p2ss [pass] such a sentence upon you as will prevent you, at all events for a long period, from doing any further mischief. I would fain believe you were not in your right senses at the time you committed this act, and it has long been the boast of this country that no man of sane mind could be found capable of committing an attack on his sovereign; but at the same time I think the jury were quite right, upon the evidence that was adduced, ia not acquitting you upon the ground of in- [insanity] sanity. Under all the circumstances the sentence that I feel it my duty to pronounce upon you is, that you be TRANSPORTED beyond the seas for the term of SEVEN YEARs, [Years] The prisoner heard the sentence without betraying the slightest emotion, and when the learned judge had concluded his address he bowed to the court, and imme- [Mme- immediately] diately [lately] turned round and without uttering a word re- [retired] tired to the gaol. Tie trial lasted nearly nine hours. . On Saturday an engine driver employed on the Lich- [Loch- Lichfield] field portion of the London and North Western Rail- [Railway] way, lost his life by coming in contact with one of the arches which cross the line. He was driving a Luggage train between Lichfield and Tamworth, and being ap- [apprehensive] prehensive [comprehensive] that something was out of order with the train, he leant [lent] over the side of the engine and looked towards the trucks. Uufortunately, [Unfortunately] while so engaged, the upper part of his body came in contact with the lower portion of one of the bridges, which threw him off the engine on to the same line of rails the train was travelling, and it was supposed the whole of them passed over him. PEsck [Peck] ConcREss [Congress] aT FRANKFORT.-This great meeting is now definitively settled. The German Senate has given in writing their full authorization for holding the congress, ard [ad] in the most courteous manner complied with the application made for their permission. An acuive [active] counuittee [committee] is also formed for making the arrange- [arrangements] ments [rents] both for the meetings of the congress and the kotel [Hotel] accommodation of the delegates and visitors who will attend it. Some of the most eminent men in Frank- [Frankfort] fort, including a number of the senate, are on the com- [committee] mitiee, [mite] and have engaged to do their utmost to secure efficicucy [efficiency] to the congress. From various parts of Ger- [Germany] many and the continent, adhesions to the congress have been sent in, and the interest felt in the undertaking is widely spreading. This congress, judging from present appearances, will be the most important one yet held, and it isto [into] be hoped that England will supply, as she has hitherto done, the largest amount of support on an cecasion [occasion] so The sittings of the congress will commence Aug. 22; and careful arrangements are making to convey the English delegates and visitors from London on the 19th August. The movement has already secured a large amount of attention, and the friends of peace throughout the country are manifesting a deep intcrest [interest] in the enterprise. Mr. Bricut [Brit] AND HIS Recent VoteE.-A [Vote.-A] Manchester gentleman, one of Mr. Bright's constituents, has written to the hon. member disapproving of the vote given by the latter on the recent motion of Mr. Roebuck. Mr. Bright replies at some length, accusing Lord Palmerston's pclicy [police] as leading to quarrels and to war; and as violat- [violet- violating] ing all those principles on which Mr. Bright was elected. The hon. member, however, strengthens his position by remarking that he voted with Cobden and Hume, and tie late lamented Sir R. Peel. He concluded by ov- [observing] serving, that to represent Manchester independently is an honour he can fully appreciate, but that to sit in parliament as the mere instrument of party is what he has neither the hope nor the ambition to do. Aw AWsEWaRD [Reward] MistaxE.-The [Mistake.-The] Nepaulese [Naples] princes were so delighted, it is said, with the rapid movements of the cavalry, that they expressed an anxious wish, at the close of the review, held in the Park last week, to pur- [our- purchase] chase one of the regiments. On its being notified to their highnesses that such a sale was quite out of the ques- [question] ticn, [tic] they then begged lcave [leave] to present the officers and men of the regiment they were so desirous to buy, with 1009 to drink their healths [health Of course, this second request was as inadmissible as the former.-Liverpool Mercury. Mcrpen [McLaren] or a HuspanD [Husband] By Porson.-An [Person.-An] elderly man, named Tiomazs [Moses] Harris, a hatter, of Frampton Cotterill, in Gloucestershire, has been poisoned. He died in April last, and a fortnight after his widow married another man, having the deceased's money. Suspicion has arisen against her; the body has been disinterred, opened, and arsenic found in the stomach. The woman is committed for trial. What makes her awful crime more repulsive and disgusting is her age-sixty-two- [wound] and her decrepit infirmity. The deed of horror has not even the poor excuse of passionate blood. THE New Lorp [Lord] Cuancettor.-Sir [Cancer.-Sir] Thomas Wilde has been appointed Lord Chancellor. He will for the present fulfil the duties of the office in Court and in the House of Lords, but he will ultimately be appointed solely to the duties of the Lords. He takes office sub ject [jet] to all arrangements.-Sun of We 'imesday. [daytime] The Times, of Thursday, contains the following additional particulars in reference to the above appointment - Tt is understood, however, that Sir Thomas Wilde will only discharge the full duties of his office until the arrangements necessary for separating the functions of the Chief Judge of the Chancery Court from those of the Speaker of the House of Lords and Chief Judge in Appeal are completed. Sir T. Wilde will then retain the political office-probably under the title of Lord Keeper, and the Presidency of the Chancery Courts will become a distinct appointment. It is understood that Sir J. Jervis, the present Attorney-General, will succeed Sir T. Wilde as Chief Justice of the Common Pleas, and that Sir John Romilly [Reilly] will be appointed Attorney-General. It is confidently e that Mr. Cockburn will succeed Sir John Romilly [Reilly] as Solicitor- [Solicitor] TRAORDINARY [ORDINARY] BALOON [SALOON] ASCENT IN Ex PARIS. Great interest had been excited in Paris by the announcement that M. Poiteven, [Steven] an aégronaut, [aground] would ascend on horseback with a balloon. Upwards of 10,000 persons paid for admission to the Champ de Mars to witness the ascent, and outside, on the heights of Chailot, [Child] &c., upwards of 150,000 individuals were col- [collected] lected. [elected] There was a vast number of carriages and horsemen, The receipts must have been very large. The President of the Republic was present, and was received with great enthusiasm. The balloon was fifteen metres in diameter, forty-seven in circumference, and twenty high, but it only weighed 150 kilogrammes. It was a matter of considerable difficulty to fill the balloon with gas, owing to the violent wind which vailed [sailed] and, when it was filled, it was beaten to and fro so strongly that several of the spectators had to assist in holding it. At a little before six o'clock the horse, a handsome dapple grey, was brought out. A stout cloth was placed round the body, and several straps, passed over the shoulders and loins, were united in rings, and by these rings the animal was attached by cords to the network of the balloon. A platform of basketwork, seven or eight feet above the horse, contained the bal- [ba- ballast] last, and to this platform theaéronaut [thereon] had access by means of a rope ladder. A cord, passing through an opening in the platform, enabled him to open the valve of the bal- [ba- balloon] loon. The aéronaut [Argonaut] was dressed as a jockey, and had with him several bottles of wine and some bread. Some confusion was caused by the crowd attempting to force their way into the reserved place, but they were kept off by the soldiers. At length, at ten minutes past six, the horse was duly attached to the balloon, and M. Poiteven [Steven] having mounted its back, the signal to rise was given. The horse plunged a little as it lost its footing, but when fairly lifted from the earth it dropped its legs, as is the case when horses are slung for embarkation on shipboard. The balloon rose majestically over the Ecole Militaire, [Military] but at times the wind was so violent as to drive it in such a position that it appeared on a level with the aéronaut. [Argonaut] The emotion of the spectators was very great, and one lady fainted. M. Poiteven [Steven] displayed extraordinary sangfroid, and saluted with his cap and whip. After awhile he was seen to leave his saddle and ascend by means of the rope ladder to the platform containing the ballast, in order to throw some of it away, so as to rise higher. This done he descended and again mounted the horse. There was no network or anything to protect him or the animal. The balloon went in the direction of Fontainbleau, [Fontainebleau] and M. Poiteven [Steven] intended to remain in the air about an hour. Several balloons were let off before M. Poiteven [Steven] ascended, to ascertain the direction of the wind, and some persons connected with him went off on horseback, in order to be able, if possible, to render him assistance in descend- [descending] ing. It is reported that the daring aéronaut [Argonaut] alighted at Meaux, [Max] and that horse and rider have returned safe and sound to Paris.-Times. The following is the account given by M. Lepoitevin [Lepton] himself of his ascension The agitated state of the atmosphere not allowing me to verify the ascensional force, I did so by supposition, and I thought it such, that I was certain to rise without any obstacle from the squalls which often blow in a downward direction. My precaution abundantly served me. I had great difficulty in moderating the too great ascensional power, which in a few minutes, carried me to a height too considerable for the horse. There was a copious flow of blood from his mouth, the result of the rupture of the equilibrium of the external and internal pressure which animals bear less easily than men. I passed through several counter currents, which produced an almost constant rotatory movement. I found the cold almost insup- [in sup- insupportable] portable, but I was, it is true, very lightly clothed. When well clear of the clouds, I saw some splen [spleen] id rainbows, and other phenomena of the solar rays. About seven o'clock I made preparations for descending, and in three quarters of an hour after my grapples were on the ground, but they did not take hold. I proceeded in this way for more than a league, when in spite of my- [myself] self I arrived at the wood of Villemain, [Villain] near the forest of La Lachelle, [Rachel] commune of Grisi, [Grist] canton of Brie-Comte- [Contribute] Robert (Seine-et-Marne). During this time my horse was close to the fields, and bit off the tops of the corn as he passed over it, and when passing over the high trees he cropped off their leaves. At length I was for- [fortunate] tunate [tuna] enough to put an end to this dangerous state of things. Seeing myself near the edge of a dry pond I vigorously laid hold a branch of a tree which grew near- [merit] it, and for an instant checked the course of the balloon, and assistance being at hand, 40 men laid hold of the ropes and it was safely secured. The balloon was emptied, and the only thing to be regretted is some slight injury to it, from coming in contact with the trees. The inhabitants of the place all hastened towards me, and the welcome I received was most satisfactory. On arriving at Grisi, [Grist] my horse and myseif [myself] were paid the most distinguished honours. All the population of the place were assembled. There was a grand ball to which I was invited, and I went into the salle [sale] on my horse. At eleven o'clock I left my entertainers and took the road to the capital. ANOTHER Battoon [Barton] Ascent.-On Monday evening Lieutenant Gale, the renowned aéronaut, [Argonaut] made an ascent from the Swiss Gardens, Shoreham. The balloon took asoutherly [southerly] direction across the Channel, the wind at the time of the ascent being very moderate. About nine o'clock Lieutenant Gale was seen by the master of a Brighton pleasure boat, who had put out expressly to follow the aéronaut, [Argonaut] making rapidly for the French coast. For some hours all news of the aéronaut [Argonaut] was suspended, and his friends were alarmed lest he should have dropped into the channel. Later accounts, how- [however] ever, convey the gratifying intelligence that Lieut. Gale effected a safe descent in the neighbourhood of Dieppe, on the French coast. Miss Cushman, the actress, has recently arrived in this country from America. Her visit, which will not extend beyond a few weeks, is in reference to the state of health of her friend Miss Eliza Cook, who is, we regret to hear, afflicted with an alarming disease. A great Protectionist Association is about to be formed in the Leominster polling district. We infer, says a con- [contemporary] temporary, from what appears in the Hereford Journal, that Mr. F. Peel will have notice to quit. A Great DIFFERENCE -Reynolds, the dramatist, ob- [observing] serving to a friend the thinness of the house at the perform- [performance] ance [once] of one of his own plays, added that he supposed it was owing to the war. No, replied the other, it was owing to the piece. A Gascon officer hearing some one recounting the exploits of a prince, who, in two assaults upon a town, had killed six men with his own hand, exclaimed- Bah I would have you know that the mattresses I sleep upon are stuffed with nothing else but the whiskers of those whom I have sent to sleep in the other world County REFORM MEETING. Much expectation is raised by an intended gathering of the reformers of Nor- [Norfolk] folk, which is to be held at Wymondham on Wednesday the 17th. [the] Mr. Hume, M.P.; Mr. George Thompson, M.P. Sir Joshua Walmsley, M.P. Mr. Williams, M.P., with Mr. Charles Gilpin, besides Messrs. Tillett [Toilet] and M'Enteer, [M'Enter] are to be among the leaders. WaRNING [Warning] TO JURORS AND WITNESSES.-During the Leeds borough sessions, held last week, a penalty of forty shillings each was imposed upon nearly twenty jurors who were absent from the court, and who were called upon to go into the jury box, the sitting jury having been allowed to retire for lunch, and it being found that there were not sufficient jurors in court to form another jury. Lord Harewood has just returned from 10 to 25 per cent. to his tenants, according to the quality of land possessed by each.- [each] Vorkshiveman, [Workman] A new movement is afloat in London for still further abridging the hours of attendance in banking offices. The change sought to be effected is to alter the hour of commencing business, making it ten instead of nine, as at present. ADDRESS OF CONDOLENCE TO LADY PEEL.-At a special meeting of the Sheffield Town Council, held on Wednesday, the following address of condolence with Lady Peel was unanimously agreed to - To Lapy [Lay] PEEL. Madam,-We, the mayor, aldermen, and burgesses of the borough of Sheffield in council assembled, desire to con- [convey] vey [very] to your ladyship an expression of our sympathy and profound regret at the recent melancholy and distressing calamity which has deprived your ladyship of a kind and indulgent husband, and the country of a highly valued and distinguished statesman, the greater part of whose life was spent in its service, and through whose means some of the most useful, important and beneficial measures that ever occupiedthe [occupied the] attention of Parliament received legislative sanciion. [sanction] Snatched away in the full vigour of his mental and physical powers, at a time when his sagacity and practical experience were invaluable to his country, the death of Sir Robert Peel has deeply affected all classes of the community, and is universally regarded as a great national calamity. In the fervent hope that your ladyship will have strength to bear this great trial, and that the spontaneous and unaffected sympathy of the whole kingdom may afford some alleviation to your ladyship's grief, we have the honour to be, with sentiments of great respect, your ladyship's most obedient servants. New Mopet [Monet] Prano-Forrss.-Broadwood's [Piano-Fores.-Broadwood's] New Model Bichorda [Richard] Grand Piano surpasses everything hitherto made with two unisons, for brilliancy of tone and elas- [Ales- elasticity] ticity [city] of touch its comparatively moderate price must also give it an additional claim to favourable notice.- [notice] Collard's New Cottage Piano-Forte This is decidedly the best cheap Piano-Forte manufactured by any house of long established repute. The tone, touch, and dura- [Dr- durability] bility [debility] may be relied on; in fact, the instrument is war- [warranted] ranted. The idea was suggested to Messrs. Collard and Collard by an article which appeared some time since in that highly and deservedly popular publication, Cham- [Chan- Chambers] bers' [bees] Journal, the object being to bring Piano-Fortes within the reach of that vast and growing body, the middle classes, who, through the operations of the Hul- [Hull- Hullah] lah [la] and Mainzer [Miners] systems, and the improved taste of the age, have of late years acquired the capacity of appre- [paper- appreciating] ciating [coating] the social and intellectual advantages of a mu- [musical] sical [musical] education. It is considered that Messrs. Collard and Collard have fully succeeded in meeting the re- [requirements] quirements [requirements] pointed out in the article alluded to. There cin [in] be no doubt a discerning public will give every en- [encouragement] couragement [encouragement] to Messrs. Collard and Collard, and that the alacrity with which that highly eminent firm deter- [determined] mined to provide so great a desideratum will be pro- [properly] perly [reply] rewarded, and stamped with the seal of universal approbation.- See Mr. Mellor's advertisement im [in] another column.)

[Huddersfield] Holroyd, MARKETS. HUDDERSFIELD, TuEsDAy, [Tuesday] JULY 9. We have had a numerous attendance of buyers to-day, and a large amount of business done both in the warehouses and Cloth-hall. The wool sales, which are drawing to a close, have gone off throughout very steadily, and consider- [considering] ing the quantity offered, and the short interval that will only elapse before the next batch, prices have been remark- [remarkably] ably well maintained.

Thestock [Stock] is very light, and holders are not anxious to sell till they see how the fair opens, the first of which takes place next week. It seems the general opinion that prices will rule much higher than last year; notwithstanding these purchases were attended with little or no profit to the buyers. s. d. s. d.

The public sales are still progressing steadily, and the finer sorts continue in request. BRESLAU, [BREST] July 4th.- [4th] There has been a fair extent of business transacted since the fair, particularly in low Polish and middiing [middling] Russian wools, of which not more than 3,000 ewts., [West] at from 46 to 56 thalers [halters] per cwt. have been purchased by home manufacturers and combers. The fine qualities are, till the present, less in demand, except fine lambs', which realises from 85 to 95 thalers. [halters] Prices in general continue very steady, and are rather something higher than during the fairs. The arrivals from Poland are very liberal, and amounted last week to nearly 1,500 cwts. [cwt] LEeps, [Lees] July 5th.-About an average amount of business has been done in foreign wools this week, and without any apparent variation in prices. BraDFORD [Bradford] MARKET, Thursday last.-There is a disposi- [disposal- disposition] tion [ion] to buy in quantity where an inducement in price is offered. The supply of wool in the market here is not large. Yarns continue in geod [Geo] request. Pieces there continues to be a brisk demand for all kinds of goods suitable for the autumn-higher prices are submitted to. Hatrrax, [Hatred] Saturday, July 6th.-There is no noticeable change in the aspect of our Piece Hall to-day, the chief inquiry being sti l, [st l] as before remarked, for low lastings. [lasting] Those of a finer quality are scarcely looked at. The yarn trade is brisk and the quotations have undergone a far- [farther] ther [the] improvement. There is a large stock of wool in the market, as the dealers are buying largely but the spinners are indisposed to give the advance which they are asking, and consequently not much is going into the hands of the consumers. LEEDs, [Leeds] Tuesday, July 9th.-Since our last report, the market has been well attended, and the cloth trade in general still continues active. Stocks are very low in the maker's hands, the clothiers being very busy with orders for the merchants. There is a fair average business doing in the warehouses. NortHampTon [Southampton] Woon [Soon] Farr (Thursday last).-Notwith- [last).-Not with- Notwithstanding] standing the unpropitious state of the morning, 672 fleeces more were pitched than at the fair last year, and it is su posed that, if the weather had been fine, 10,000 or 15,000 eeces [aces] in addition would have been brought. 116 lots, comprising 33,000 fleeces, were pitched, most of which was sold. Mr. Owen Wallis, Overstone, brought the largest quantity, 2,174 fleeces, and obtained 27s. 6d.; Mr. Hob- [Hobson] son, m [in] Seagrave, brought 1,561 fleeces, and made 28s.; [S's] Marquis of Northampton, 620 fleeces, 30s.

BaRNsLEY [Barnsley] LINEN TRADE.-The linen trade has some- [somewhat] what improved during the last two or three weeks. Fer- [Ferrand] rand's agitation for a Wool and Flax League is said to be the cause of the increase in the sale of linens. Shirtings are principally for the agricultural counties. ROCHDALE FLANNEL MARKET, Monday, July 8.-We have had a moderate attendance of merchants and country drapers in the market the middling qualities of power- [power loom] loom fabrics were in good demand, and in some instances rather better prices were obtained all manufacturers were inclined to have higher rates for their goods. The stocks of goods in the wurehouses [warehouse] are low, and there is every ap- [appearance] pearance [appearance] of a brisk trade in the flannel business in this dis- [district] trict. [strict] The wool market was much the same as our last report. WAKEFIELD CoRN [Corn] MARKET, Yesterday, July 12th.- [the] The arrival of wheat this week is large, with only a small supply of spring corn. The weather during the past week has been rather unfavourable for the growing crops, but to-day is fine and genial. Wheat is held firmly to-day at fully 2s. per quarter over the rates of last Friday, and a fair extent of business has been done at that advance. Grinding barley is the turn dearer. Beans are also held for ls. per quarter more money. Oats 3d. per stone, and shelling Is. per load higher. Arrivals during the past week Wheat, 14,442; barley, 593; oats, 628; beans, 644; peas, 126; linseed, 219 quarters; shelling, 230; malt, 240 loads. Lonpon [London] Corn Market, Wednesday July 10.-Scarcel [10.-Scarcely] any English wheat was on sale in Inarket, [Intake] coast, wise or by land carriage. Although the attendance of buyers was limited, the demand for all kinds of wheat of home produce was steady, at fully Monday's advance in the quotations. No English barley at market, and the supply af foreign was moderate. The demand ruled steady, at full rates of currency. There was a slight improvement in the demand for malt, at very full prices. Good sound oats were fe. dearer. All other kinds ruled firm. Beans peas, and Indian corn, steady. The top pric [price] ' 40s. per 280 Tbs.

BaRNSLEY [Barnsley] CorN [Corn] Market, Wednesday last.-We had a moderate supply of grain at our market this day, with an average amount of business done in wheat at an advance of 1s. per 3 bushels. Barley and oats a shade higher. STATE OF TRADE IN MANCHESTER, Tuesday last.-The cotton market was much firmer, with advanced quotations. This has limited business, particularly in cloth, as purcha- [purchase- purchasers] sers [sees] show no disposition to comply with the increased rates. In Yarns there has been more business done, and buyers have more readily complied with the requirements of the spinners. However, the latter are not anxious sellers, even at their advanced quotations, and will not extend orders over a lengthened period. The market is excessively bare of stock. Doubled yarns are steadily improving, but at present prices they are still unremunerative [remunerative] to the doubler, [double] this article, except in the finer numbers, having been pre- [previously] viously [obviously] much depressed. LIVERPOOL CoTtoN [Cotton] MARKET, Tuesday, July 9.-The disposition to buy cotton continues unabated, speculators exporters, and the trade still operating largely the sales since Thursday are 52,000 bales, of which 18,000 are on speculation and 5,000 for export, at an advance of 4d. per Ib. on the quotations of Friday, the market closing firmly bet-with a fair supply.
