THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SAURDAY, [SATURDAY] SEPTEMBER 14, 1850. FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. UNITED STATES. THE NEW AMERICAN CABINET. ince we presented our readers with some Fe ee memDers [members] of President Fillmore's ow ministry. As come material changes have been since made, we now supply a sketch of those gentlemen since appended to the list -State, Daniel Webster, Massachusetts; Treasury, James A. Pearce, Ohio; In- [Inferior] éerior, [inferior] W. A. Graham, North Carolina; War, E. Bates, Missouri; Attorney-General, J. J. Crittenden, Kentucky; Postmaster-Geucral, [Postmaster-General] Nathan K. Hall, New York. The reputation of Webster lcaves [leaves] little to be said. He was born in New Hampshire in 1782. He entered Congress as Member for New Hampshire in 1813, and afterwards removed to Boston. In 1823 he was returned member for Massachusetts. In 1827 he was transferred to the Senate, where he remained til 1841, when he was appointed Secretary of State by President Harrison. After the quarrel of President Tyler with the Whigs, in 1841, Webster refused to resign with his colleagues in the Harrison Cabinet, but continued in Tyler's cabinet until 1843, when he resigned. As Secretary of State his most important act was in negotiating the treaty with Lord Ashburton in 1842. In 1845, notwithstand- [not withstand- notwithstanding] ing his having remained in Tyler's Cabinet, he was agein [again] elected senator by tie Massachusetts Legislature; his time of service expires in March next. He has served twenty-six years in both cote eign [in] years in the resentatives [representatives] and eighteen in the Senate. - Corwin [Crown] is about fifty years of age, of humble origin; he was distinguished as a lawyer, and was elected to Congress from the Warren district in 1831. He con- [continued] tinved [tinned] 2 member until 1840, when he was chosen Governor of Ohio. He continued Governor but two years, his Democratic predecessor, Wilson Shanron, [Shanghai] suc- [such- succeeding] ceeding [feeding] him. In i845 [i] the Legis [Legs] ature [nature] of Ohio elected him senator to succeed Benjamin Japhan, [Japan] Democrat. He is an able debater and advocate of Whig policy. He is considered the most eloquent stump orator in Ohio. His talents as a financier remain to be seen, but he has been always a Protectionist. ; James A. Pearce, of Maryland, a native of Kent, is fifty years of age. He was clected [elected] member for Kent in 1835, and again in 1841, in all six years. In 1843 he was trans- [transferred] ferred [erred] to the Senate, and was re-elected in 1849, conse- [cone- consequently] quently [frequently] his term does not expire until 1855. He is a ready and éloquent [eloquent] debater. oe. Edward Bates, Missouri, a native of Virginia, is a pro- [prominent] minent [eminent] member of the St. Louis bar. He was elected to Congress during the administration of J. Quincy Adams, but, as the Adams party were in a minority, he had few opportunities of distinguishing himself. He was an advocate of improvement and of the protective system. He retired into private life in 1829, enjoying a high reputation in Missouri; but his political friends being ever since in a minority in that state he was com- [comparatively] paratively [positively] unknown to the nation until July, 1847, when he was caosen [chosen] President of the Western Improvement Convocation. His inaugural speech showed great talents. He is over fifty-five years of age. William A. Graham, aged fifty, is a native of North Carolina. He represented thai [that] state from 1841 to 1843. In 1844 he was elected governor of the state, re-elected in 1846, and retired at the expiration of his term, in 1849. As governor he was popular, and he is one of the most able Whig leaders in that state. J.J. Crittenden is about sixty. From 1819 to 1835 he practised as one of the first lawyers in Kentucky, occasionally representing his county in the local legis- [legs- legislature] lature. [nature] In 1835, he was elected to Congress, and served till 1841.. He was appointed Attorney-General by Har- [Harrison] rison. [risen] He resigned in 1841, on the Whig quarrel with yler. [yer] He was clectced [elected] to the Senate in 1842. He re- [retired] tired in 1848, being nominated Governor of Kentucky, which he now holds. It expires in September, 1852. He became early committed to the support of General Taylor, as Mr. Clay was not to be a candidate for the Presidency but, Mr. Clay having subsequently changed his mind, a little feud ensued between him aad [and] Mr. Crit- [CRT- Crittenden] tenden [tender] aud [and] his friends. Clay did not, however, refuse to vote for Crittenden as governor, nor did the governor use his influence against Clay's election to the Senate; but the feelings of coldness remained. Nathan K. Hall, of New York, is forty-three years old. He was formerly law partner with Mr. Fillmove, [Fillmore] and was, several years since, Recorder of Buffalo city, which district he represented in Congress, Theroyal [The royal] mail steamer Niagara, Captain Stone, reached the Mersey on Monday afternoon. She sailed from New York at noon on the 28th ult. and from Halifax on the 30th. [the] She brings sixty-two passengers, and 350,000dols. [W,tools] in snecie. [since] The Civil and Diplomatic Appropriation Bill, was passed on the 27th, [the] by a vote of 180 to 62. The Texan Boundary Bill would be next taken up; but there were strong doubts as to its passage. The California Bill would probably pass without difficulty. A riot occurred on the Ohio and Pennsylvania rail- [railroad] road, about eight miles from Pittsburgh, in which about one hundred Irishmen were engaged. The sheriff called out the military, and proceeded to the scene of action. The rioters levelled a numbewof [number] houses, but no lives were lost, though bodily injuries were inflicted on many persons. The captains of the Georgiana and Susan Loud, on suspicion of being concerned in the Lopez ex- [expedition] pedition, [edition] are still detained in close confinement at Havanna.

The American Association for the Advancement of Science closed its semi-annual session at Newhaven on the 24th ult. A large number of emincnt [eminent] savans [Savings] were present, and several papers of great interest to the scientific world were read, eliciting animated discussion from the members of the convention. A destructive fire took place at Montreal on the 22nd ult., consuming about 125 honses. [houses] The whole amount of property destroyed is estimated at 120,000dols. [W,tools] News from New Mexico, to the 16th ult. states the elections under the new state constitution had taken place. Dr. Henry Connelly had been elected governor; Emanuel Alvarez, lieutenant-governor William S. Mes- [Messenger] serdy, [seed] representative in Congress; and Majors B. N. Whitman, and F. A. Cunningham (both late paymasters in the United States army), senators. The passage of the Territorial Bill will of course nullify these proceed- [proceedings] ings. The people of New Mexico appeared to be nearly equally in favour of a state and territorial government. Advices to the 24th, [the] state that the Indian depredations im [in] the states of Sonora, Chihuahua, and Durango, were more serious than ever and that several conflicts had lately taken place between the Apaches and bands of the government soldiers. A revolution has taken place in the Republic of Equador. [Equator] General Elzaldi, [exalt] who was conspicuous in the revolution of 1845, was compelled to flee from the vio- [vi- violence] lence [Lance] of the insurgents, and take refuge on board a British man-of-war then in the port of Guayaquil. He subsequently went on board a small schooner, and landed in the province of Manabee, [Manager] marching forward with a small force to Guayaquil. The anarchists wish to dis- [dismember] member the republic, which has already been divided into three states. The news from Jamaica advises a movement to request the United States' government to establish a mail com- [communication] munication [communication] by the American steamers through the port of Kingston, now that the British steamers had altered their route. The American consul promised to use his influence. From St. Domingo we learn that the Emperor Faustin [Austin] I, was fitting out an expedition both by sea and land. It was said the naval force would consist of two large square-rigged vessels and a screw steamer. Three white inhabitants of influence had been beheaded, for what the authorities considered a too free expression of political opinions. LATEST NEWS BY TELEGRAPH TO HALIFAX.

Louis Napoleon left Caen [Can] early on the morning of the 5th inst., and made his entrance into the famous sea-port of Cherbourg the same night. He was received throughout the whole line of route by the multitude with the greatest sympathy and acclamation, and saluted on all sides by the cries of Vive Vice] Napoleon, Vive [Vice] le President. On Friday morning the President received all the local authorities, and a great number of English nobility and gentry, who had come over to Cherbourg to pay their respects to Louis Napoleon. At noon he re- [reviewed] viewed the National Guard, the troops of the garrison, and in the afternoon the authorities of Cherbourg enter- [entertained] tained [gained] the President at a grand banquet, when upwards of 700 persons were present, including Sir Charles Napier, Rear-Admiral, K.C.B.; Sir Thomas Cochrane, ice-Admiral, K.C.B.; Sir Edmund Lyons, Vice-Ad- [Admiral] miral, [moral] G-C.B.; Hon. Captain D. Pelham, R.N., Captain lundy, [lund] Captain Captain Seymour, Captain Mac- [MacKinnon] Kinnon, [Cannon] Captain Jones, Captain M. Hall, the Earl of Wilton, Commodore R. Y. C.; Earl of Cardigan, Mar- [Marvel] Vv; of Orkney, Viscount Canterbury, , Vice-Commodore R.Y.C. Captain Smith, Royal Engineers. The banquet-hall was splendidly the was placed on the table the Mayor of Cherbourg rose, and amidst profound silence proposed The Memory of the Emperor Napoleon and the Health of the President of the Republic. The Presment [Present] of the RepPuBuic, [Republic] in acknowledging the toast, spoke as follows - Gentlemen,-The more I travel over France, the more I perceive what its people expect from the government. There is not a department, a city, a town, a hamlet I visit, that the mayors, the councils-general, and even the repre- [prepare- representatives] sentatives [representative] of the people, do not demand of me-here, of communication, such as canals and railroads there, 4 e completion of works already begun in a word, on all si measures to relieve the distress of agriculture and to impa' [imp] new life to industry and commerce. Nothing is more natural or more praiseworthy than the manifestation wishes. They do not, believe me, fall on an ve ear. But I too may be permitted to observe that these sults, [suits] so 1auch [each] desired, so much wanted as they are, canno [Canon] be effected unless you afford me the means of accomplishing them, and these means are to be found in your co-operation. in fortifying authority and in guarding against anges [ages] the future. (Cries of C'est vrat, [rat] cest [chest] vrat [rat followed by loud applause.) How did it happen that the Emperor, in spite of war, was able to cover all France with imperish- [Imperial- imperishable] able works that are found at every step and are nowhere found so remarkable and so great as here It is that, independently of his genius he lived at a period when the nation, exhausted by revolution, gave him the neces- [NeWS- necessary] sary [say] power to crush anarchy, repress faction, and secure the triumph by glory abroad, at home by a vigorous impulse, of the general interests of the country. (Applause. ) If, then, there be in all France a city that ought to be Napoleonien [Napoleon] and conservative, that city is Cherbourg. (Cries of Qui Quin oui [our prolonged applause, and shouts of Vive [Vice] Napoleon from every part of the hall.) Napoleonien [Napoleon] through gratitude-(applause)-conserva- [gratitude-(applause)-Conservative- conservative] tive [tie] in its wise appreciation of its true interests. ( Bravo and renewed cries of Vive [Vice] MNapoleon [Napoleon] What, in fact and truth, is a port, created as is yours by such gigantic efforts, but the striking and con- [convincing] vincing [Mincing] testimony of French unity followed up through so many ages and revolutions-an unity which makes you a great nation But do not forget that a great nation can never maintain itself at the height of its destinies, except when its institutions are in accordance with the exigencies of its political situation and its material interests, (Applause.) The people of Normandy know how to appreciate such sertiments, [sentiments] and they have given a proof of it, and it is with pride that I this day propose a toast to the city of Cherbourg. Yes I propose this toast in the very sight of the fleet that carried so nobly the French flag to the East, and which is still ready to carry it, with equal glory, wherever the honour of our nation calls it. I propose this toast in the presence of those distinguished st rs now our guests. They can convince themselves of the fact that if we desire peace it is not because we are weak. (The loudest applause followed these words, mingled with cries of 'Vive [Vice] Napoleon 'Vive [Vice] l' Empereur [Emperor] It is not because we are weak, but rather from that community of interests and those sentiment of mutual esteem which bind together the two most civilized nations of the globe. I driuk [drink] to the city and port of Cherbourg (Renewed applause, with cries of Vive [Vice] Napoleon ) When the President stood up to speak, a salute was fired from the guns, and the echo lasted all the time he was speaking. This incident imparted much solemnity to the occasion. ; On the evening of Friday, the President was enter- [entertained] tained [gained] at a splendid ball, given in his honour; all the ships were illuminated at nightfall; and also many of the private houses in the town. Soon after two o'clock on Sunday the ships began to obey the signal, Clear for action, which they did with great celerity. The drums beat to quarters, the fire- [fire buckets] buckets lanyards were rove, and the buckets slung, the tops were crowded with the armed sailors, protected by tarpaulings [tarpaulin] triced [tried] up around them, and the guns were all run out from the ports-the whole being done in a smart sailor like manner, but not with unusual quick- [quickness] ness. In another instant the whole fleet opened a most tremendous (although it was a blank) fire, which was remarkable for regularity and rapidity. It was of the character technivally [technical] called general firing by divi- [div- divisions] sions, [Sons, and it certainly showed the French sailors to be expert gunners. Their manner of serving the powder from the magazines is particularly safe and expeditious, but it would be impossible to explain it without a dia- [aid- diagram] gram. The musketry from the tops was not so good as might have been expected asa sight it was magnificent. The broadsides, now crashing altogether till the very earth shook, and now sinking to single reports, swelled and fell away again and again, while the smoke, settling down densely over the fleet, gave a landsman to under- [understand] stand the great difficulty which its thick masses must offer to the successful carrying out of manceuvres [manoeuvres] in a naval engagement. At last, after an immense expendi- [expend- expenditure] ture [true] of gunpowder, the firing concluded. In a few moments the signal was given to man the boats, which pushed of in divisions to represent an attack on the steamcr [steam] Descartes. This was a beautiful part of the evolu- [evil- evolution] tions. [tins] Upwards 55 boats, with heavy guns (321b. [b] carronades [carbonates] generally) in the bow, filled with small-arm men, officers, and sailors, pushed out in excellent order, after preparing for nearly half an hour for the attack. For some time they advanced towards the steamer with great regu- [reg- regularity] larity, [laity] the bow guns being fired with quickness, and the musketry spattering away from every boat in a continuous roll, so that the advance soon became ob- [obscured] scured [cured] by the smoke. Meantime the Descartes replied by repeated discharges of her heavy guns, and by a continuous rattle of small arms from tops, bulwarks, and paddle-box platform. After the boats had pulled for about six hundred yards, their progress became irregular and unsteady-the firing became broken, the order somewhat confused; but every officer of ex- [experience] perience [Prince] knows it to be very difficult to manage such very extensive operation, without great practice, in boats not accustomed to work together. The whole of the evolutions [evolution] concluded about five o'clock. Sir T. Cochrane, Sir C. Napier, Capt. Chads, Capt. Mondy, [Monday] Capt. Jones, Capt. Seymour, Sir G. Lyons, and Capt. Hall, dined with the President, on board the Friedland, [Fried land] and all the captains and senior officers of the fleet were invited on the occasion. The banquet was laid out on the deck, which was very tastefully decorated. About one hundred and thirty persons were present. After dinner, the Admiral Duchesne proposed The health of the President, in a civil speech. The President shortly applied, and, in doing so, paid a neatly-turned compliment to the naval officers, English and French, observing, with respect to the French navy, that if it had not always been crowned with laurels, its cypress was still full of honour. There was no enthusiasm in his reception by the officers. It is understood that the fleet will not sail till the 15th. [the] A grand display of fire- [fireworks] works took place at night and the president left for the shore, under a salute, about half-past nine On Monday the President quitted Cherbonrg, [Chronic] amid the plaudits of the inhabitants, and arrived at Avranches [Franchise] late on Wednesday from St. Lé, having passed on his route through Coutances [Stances] and Granville. At Coutances [Stances] he visited the cathedral, where he was felicitated by the bishop at the head of his clergy. At Granville he laid the first stone of a dock, which will complete the port. In these two towns, and everywhere on his passage, he was hailed by the population with cries of Vive Vice] le Président, [President, and Vive Vice] Napoleon. The entry into Avranches, [Franchise] amidst an immense population assembled on the terraces leading to the Sous Prefecture, and saluting the President with the most enthusiastic accla- [accra- acclamations] mations, [nations] was truly magnificent. The President returned to Paris about ten o'clock, by the Rouen [Run] Railway, and by special train from Bonnieres, [Bonnets] which he reached at eight p.m. Letters from Wiesbaden, of the most recent date, state that the Count de Citambord [Stamford] has, in the most decided manner, refused to adopt the suggestions or follow the counsels of the more exalted and indiscreet of the ligitimists, [legitimised] who wished him to act so as to increase the confusion of affairs in France, in order that the reds might get the upper hand, and thereby a chance of final success to the royalist party be obtained. --- SPAIN. Letters from Madrid of the 4th instant state that the triumph of the Moderate party in the elections in the provinces has been as complete as those in the capital ; so much so as to surprise the Government itself. The general result of the ballot in Madrid is thus- [thus the] the Moderates have obtained 2,815 votes; the Pro- [Progressive] gressistas [resists] 509; the Conservative opposition 15; and the pure Democrats only 6. SICILY. The trial of the sixteen persons accused of political crimes before the Criminal Court of Palermo, has ter- [te- terminated] minated [mounted] in the acquittal of thirteen, the condemnation of one to the galleys, and of two to death. The execu- [exec- execution] tion [ion] of the judgment on these two last has been sus- [suspended] pended, and the court has expressly recommended them to the royal clemency. erie Curious MatrmoniaL [Matrimonial] IncIpENT.-A [Incident.-A] young lady of respectable family and connexion, in the neigshbourhood [neighbourhood] of Armagh, while on a visit some time since to her brother, who has been for some years settled in a mercantile capa- [cap- capacity] city at Liverpool, formed an acquaintance with a medical gentleman of some eminence there, who was in attendance on her brother during illness; the acquaintance ripened into an attachment, which resulted in a proposal of mar- [marriage] riage [ridge] on his part, and acceptance of the proposal on hers. Matters remained thus for some time, the engagement being known to the friends of both parties on each side of the channel, and preparations were in progress, we under- [understand] stand, for the celebration of the nuptials, when suddenly a stop was put to the proceedings by some untoward oceurrence, [assurance] of which the following is the current version that the gentleman in question required the lady to bind herself to hold no intercourse with her brother after ber [be] marriage, to which terms she would not consent. What may have moved him to make such a proposal with refer- [reference] ence [once] to a gertieman [German] whose medical attendant he was, is not easy to conjecture; but whatever may have been the cause, the result has been an intended action-at-law for the double injury of breach of promise of marriage and intended defamation. The record was to have been immediately tried in England, and a worthy baronet in this neighbour- [neighbourhood] hood had actually gone over, to testify to the respectability of the lady's family, when a compromise was to, the terms of which are, as we have been informed, that the defendant pays the lady Guardian. THE BUILDING FOR THE GREaT [Great] EXHIBITION OF 1851.- [W] The area on the ground-floor of this proposed edifice is 752,832 square feet the area of the ries [rise] included in the contract is 102,528 square feet, making. a total of 855,360 feet. Other galleries may be introduced if needed, at an extra cost, affording an additional available area of 90,432 square feet. The space demanded by the metro- [metropolitan] politan [politician] districts, u August Ist, [Its] is 27,774 square feet of tioor [too] or table, and D4, 243 uare [are] feet of wall space. For Manchester, it is said, 10,000 mare feet have been guaran- [guardian- guaranteed] teed. America has accepted 80,000 square feet, IRELAND. The lucrative office of Collector General of Taxes under the new Dublin Improvement Bill, which public report had long since given to Mr. Maurice O'Connell, the member for Tralee, [Trial] has been bestowed on Mr. Alderman Staunton, whose name is identified with Irish journalism as the founder and proprietor of the Register newspaper, which for many years was the ised [used] organ of the late Mr. O'Connell, and the record, as it were, of the proceedings of the once celebrated Catholic Association.-Times Correspondent. EXTRAORDINARY AFFAIR AT MaLLow.-Great [Allow.-Great] excite- [excitement] ment [men] has been occasioned at Mallow in consequence of the death of a little boy between seven and eight years of age, who was killed by a blow on the head given by Captain Henry Kendal Bushe, [Bush] of the 59th regiment. The captain was walking, and had three dogs with him ; the little boy, who had a toy whip in his hand, struck one of the dogs, upon which the captain inflicted the fatal blow upon the head of the child. A verdict of manslaughter has been returned. The death of the Very Rev. Holt Waring, rector of Shankell, [Shank ell] places the deanery of Dromore at the disposal of government. THE BuiEssincton [Burlington] Estates.-Another portion of this leviathan property is announced for sale before one of the masters in chancery in the month of November next. This division consists of land to the extent of upwards of 12,000 acres, situate in the baronies of Strabane and Omagh, in the county of Tyrone, and parts of the lord- [lordship] ship of St. Mary's Abbey, in the county and city of Dublin. Lorp [Lord] CLARENDON's Visit TO BELFast.-The [Belfast.-The] Lord- [Lord lieutenant] Lieutenant arrived in Belfast on Saturday afternoon, by the Ulster Railway, from Armagh. The journey from Armagh was completed in the brief space of 53 minutes- [minutes] a rate of more than 40 miles per hour. On his Excel- [Excellency] lency [ency] stepping on the platform the troops presented arms, the band struck up the National Anthem, and cheers loud and hearty welcomed the Earl of Clarendon to the metropolis of the north. His Excellency was received by the chairman, vice-chairman, and directors, whose congratulations he acknowledged with much courtesy, and was immediately conducted by them into the board room. Here an address of congratulatien.on [congratulation.on] his Excellency's arrival in the capital of the north was read by Mr. Goddard, to which Lord Clarendon replied in a brief but practical and congratulatory speech. Tue Repeat Assoctation.-- [Association.-- Association] The week's rent of this notorious society, as announced on Monday last, was 8, some shillings and a few odd pence,-a sad falling off as compared with the palmy days of repeal. DeatH [Death] oF Cuter Justice DoHerty.-The [Dirty.-The] Right Hon. John Doherty, Cheif [Chief] Justice of the Irish Court of Common Pleas, expired suddenly on Sunday last, at Beaumaris, in Wales, where he had gone for the benefit of his health. Mr. Doherty was called to the bar in 1808, and got his silk gown in 1823. He was elected for the city of Kilkenny in 1826 by the influence of the Ormond family, in opposition to the present member for the county, Mr. P.S. Butler. Mr. Doherty became Solicitor-General in 1827 and on the 21st of December, 1830, was appointed to the high office of Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas in Ireland. The combat between Mr. O'Connel and him on the occasion of the discussion on the Doneraile [Funeral] conspiracy, on the 12th of May 1830, is one of the most memorable instances on recent Parliamentary record of high intellectual antagon- [antagonist- antagonism] ism; and it is due to the memory of the deceased Chief Justice to state that, in addition to an overwhelming majority of the House of Commons in his favour, Lord Althorp and other equally exalted judges of the question upon which that discussion arose, expressed their streng [strong] sense of the injustice of the charge brought against him. It is said that in 1834 it was the wish of Sir Robert Peel to have him retire from the bench, with a view fo his resuming that position in the House of Commons which he had gained by his former tiumphs [triumph] in that assembly; and more recently a rumour very generally prevailed of his own anxiety to have an opportunity of again exhibit- [exhibiting] ing his powers in the Upper House. He owed much to patronage, that especially of the Marquis of Anglesey, during whose administeration [administration] of Ireland he was appointed Solicitor-General, but his elevation was much more attributable to his own consummate tact and unquestion- [inquisition- unquestionable] able talents. By his death the office of Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas will be the prize of Attorney- [Attorney general] General Monahan. [Monarch] 7 -- -- THE TRUSTEE AcT.-Among [At.-Among] the 116 public acts which were passed in the late session was one to consolidate and amend the laws relating to the conveyance and transfer of real and personal property) vested in mortgagees and trus- [Truss- trustees] tees. By this act, which contains sixty sections, very con- [considerable] siderable [considerable] powers are given to the Court of Chancery over mortgagees and trustees. That court can convey estates of lunatic trustees and mor [or] and, in cases where it is uncertain whether the last trustee be living or dead, the Court can vest the trust property in other persons, and appoint new trustees. The object of the act is to enable the Court of Chancery by an order instead of a suit, to obtain possession of property with the view of carrying out the trusts vested in parties. It is provided that the person or persons who, upon the making of such order, shall be trustee or trustees, shall have the same rights and powers as he or they would have had if appointed by a decree in a suit duly instituted. The powers of the Court of Chancery over trust property are extended to the colonies. The act will come into force on the Ist [Its] of November. It is to be cited as The Trustee Act, 1850. [W] SUPPOSED SUICIDE ON a dead body of a respeciably [especially] dressed man was found on Monday morning, on the Liverpool branch of the London and North-Western Railway Company, between Eccles and Patricroft. [Patriotic] Both his legs had been cut off by a train passing over him; but whether he was a person who had been crossing the line, or thrown himself in the way of a train, with the view of suicide, cannot be ascertained. The body has since been identified as that of Mr. John Peel, of Manchester, formerly in a respectable position in life, but latterly he had been much reduced in circumstances, and there is too much reason to fear that he had sought destruction. Two ac- [acquaintance] uaintances [instances] had met him on Saturday, when he exhibited the only shilling he had left, observing to them, 'This is the last of the Mohicans. [Morgans. The unfortunate gentleman was about sixty years of age. REPRESENTATION OF LyMINGTON. [Wellington] The protectionist association of this borough have forwarded an address to Mr. Mackinnon, [Cannon] in which they inform the hon. gentleman that he does not possess their confidence, and that they will oppose his re-election at any future period. The uniform support which Mr, Mackinnon [Cannon] has given to the policy of free trade is assigned as the reason for this manifestation of political feeling. . THE LATE Sik [Si] ROBERT PEEL.-The executors of the late Right Hon. Sir Robert Peel, within the last few days, remitted fees to the various medical gentlemen who at- [attended] tended him and endeavoured to alleviate the effects of the fearful accident which was the means of terminating his life -To Sir Brodie, Bart. 250 guineas; to Alexander Shaw, Esq. 100 guineas and to the other gen- [gentlemen] tlemen [gentlemen] proportionate sums. THE ATTACK ON GENERAL Haynav.-A [Hannah.-A] meeting of National Democrats was held in Farringdon Hall, London; on Tuesday night, to take into consideration the noble conduct of the workmen employed at Barclay and Perkins's brewery, in having given expression to the feeling of detes- [dees- detestation] tation [station] felt towards the assassin and woman-flogger, Haynau, [Hannah] by all true Englishmen. The mecting [meeting] was large, and the proceedings were opened by the singing of the Italian Marseillaise, by a Hungarian. The speakers were a Mr. D. W. Ruffy, [Duffy] Mr. Julian Harney, Citizen Engels (a German who had fought in many lands), Mr. Brown, and other 'gentlemen, in support of resolutions thanking the draymen [drawn] for the mode in which they treated Haynau, [Hannah] and condemnatory of the Marshal's conduct towards the Hungarian insurgents. After three groans for Haynau, [Hannah] and three groans for The Times and Morning Chronicle, three cheers for Kossuth and Hungary, three cheers for the glorious French Republicans, three cheers for the German, Italian, and Polish patriots, and an equal number given, with great enthusiasm, for Barclay and Per- [Perkins] kins's [ins's] workmen, the meeting separated. APPREHENSION OF A RUNAWAY Bankrupt.-A few weeks ago Mr. John Hunt, a small silk manufacturer a Middleton, absconded, and sailed for America, leaving his creditors minus to the amount of about 2,000. It a; that he sailed from Liverpool for Philadelphia in the Wyoming, on the 14th of June. On the 22nd of the same month, on of his creditors, Mr. Delaunay, [Dealing] of Blackley, was sent in pursuit of Mr. Hunt, and sailed in the Europa steamer, on the above date, from Liverpool. He arrived at Philadelphia before Hunt, and had him apprehended on his arrival, Mr. Delaunay [Dealing] has received instructions to bring the runaway bankrupt back to England, where he is ex- [expected] pected [expected] in the course of a few days.- [days] Manchester Examiner. MoDE [Mode] or Discoverinc [Discovered] Poisonous ROOMS.-A [A] forrespondent [correspondent] of the Times points out the fol- [following] lowing simple mode of testing poisonous mushrooms, from eating of which several persons have latterly been poisoned Berore Before] pecling [declining] the mushroom pass a gold ring backwards and forwards on the skin of the mushroom. Should the bruise thus caused turn yellow or orange colour, the mush- [mushroom] room is poisonous, but otherwise it is quite safe. Most females are blessed with a gold wedding-ring, or ought to be; if not, a sovereign or half-sovereign will, for this par- [particular] ticular [circular] purpose, do as well. EXPENSES OF PuBLIC [Public] Boarps.-On [Boards.-On] Wednesday last, a parliamentary paper was printed, showing in detail the expenses of the General Board of Health, the Commissioners in Lunacy, and the Poor-law Board. The expenses of the General Board of Health to the 31st [st] of March last were were 8,084 6s. 24d. The travelling and personal expenses of the Commissioners in Lunacy, in the year ending the 3lst [last] of July, were 2,355 11s. 11d.; [d] and of the Poor-law Board, fo. the year ending the 31st [st] of March last, 8,878 Os. 2d.; leaving a surplus of For the General Board of Heaith [Health] 8,000 was voted; for the Commissioners in Lunacy the exact sum; and for the Poor- [Pool] law Board 10,000. SUICIDE OF Aa CHILD.-A boy named William Perceval, [Percival] between nine and ten years of age, whose parents reside at Garden-place, Bell-street, Vincent-square, Westminster, died on Wednesda [Wednesday] under the following remarkable cir- [circumstances] cumstances [cum stances] -On Saturday afternoon, he asked his mother to let him go out to play, and on being refused he said he would go and hang himself. He went out, his mother taking no notice of his threat, but a short time afterwards she discovered him hanging in a back shed. He was im- [in- immediately] mediately cut down, but life was almost extinct. He lingered till Wednesday morning, at eight o'clock, when he died of lock-jaw. PRICE OF Gas.-The directors of the Sunderland Sub- [Subscription] scription [description] Gas Light Company have announced that, from the greatly increased consumption of that article they have been enabled to reduce the gross price of gas from five shil- [sail- shillings] lings to four shillings per one thousand cubic feet, subject to a discount of twenty-five per cent for payment during the month after the close of each quarter, making the net price three shillings, at which price they are prepared to treat with consumers for a term of years. TOTAL LOSS OF THE IN DIAN INDIAMAN. [INDIAN] It is with considerable regret we announce the loss of this fine Indiaman, [Indian] 500 tons burden, on her outward voyage from England to Bombay, on a reef of rocks named the Cargados [Cards] Garayos [Gray's] or Narerett [Nearest] Bank, with a melancholy loss of human life. The annexed narrative is from a gentleman who was a passenger on board - Nothing of any note occurred until the night of the 4th of April last, when at eight o'clock the captain informed us that if his reckoning was correct we should either be clear or very nearly upon the Cargados [Cards] reef, Being rather taken aback at the cool way in which he expressed himself, I ran forward to the forecastle, fol- [followed] lowed by the captain and one of the passengers. Twenty minutes had not elapsed before I distinctly saw breakers ahead, which I immediately pointed out to the captain, who turned to one of the seamen standing near him at the time (named Peter Martin), and asked him if he thought they were breakers. He replied, Yes, they are;' at the same time the look-out man on the foreyard [frayed] sang out 'breakers ahead.' We were then going six knots, with the starboard tacks about two points free, wind east, steering north. The captain ordered the helm to be put up, and she fell off to the W.N.W. and in far less time than it has taken me to write she struck, at first slightly, then went on with a fearful crash, starting every timber in her, pieces of wreck floating up all around us. We saw in a moment that all hopes of saving the vessel were at an end, as she heeled over to the leeward suddenly, the sea mak- [make- making] ing a clear breach over her every roller. This was the work of a few minutes only. Three parts of the crew were by this time on their knees, crying and making the most frantic appeals to heaven for aid. All order and discipline were now at an end. The carpenter and two seamen attempted to cut away the masts, but owing, I suppose, to the excitement of the moment, they cut away the weather rigging only. The masts of course went by the board, but being still attze'e1 [arts'e1] to the vessel by the le rigging and falling over to seaward, they served as a battering-ram, beating the vessel to pieces every successive roller. After the first burst of excitement was over a simultaneous rush was made to the boats, but we found the only one that was available was the starboard quarter boat the other two had been staved to pieces by the wreck. The captain was not slow in taking to our only apparent chance of escape -the remaining boat eight of the seamen speedily following him. They shoved off, but pulled back once or twice near to the vessel, asking for water and bread, which of course it was out of our power to supply them with. They then pulled away altogether, which was the last we saw of them. The ship by this time was breaking up fast; the stern-frame burst out, and was thrown up on the starboard quarter, and in a few minutes afterwards she parted amidships, leaving thirteen persons exposed to the fury of the surf on the fore part of the starboard board-side, where we remained till the morning broke. The tide turned about this time from ebb to flood, when the rollers came in with redoubled violence, and dashed the remainder of the wreck into pieces. All were immediately buffeting with the waves. Sharks innumerable surrounded us on all sides, which very much increased the terrors of our situation. Owing to my being hurled on the rocks by the surf two or three times, I lost my senses, and was perfectly unconscious of what occurred till I found myself resting on a spar with a sailor. I found the ship had gone to pieces, and that five of our com- [comrades] rades [rates] had perished. Water surrounded us in every direction, with nothing in view but one or two small sandbanks, and those a long distance off. By night we had constructed a rude kind of raft, on which we slept, but as the tide ebbed we grounded, and, with the ex- [exception] ception [option] of our heads, we were literally sleeping in the water, cold and wretched, but still, comparatively speak- [speaking] ing, safe. We remained on the raft in this state two days and nights, the sun scorching us by day, and the wind, owing to our being wet, making us dreadfully cold at night. On Sunday, the third day, having found a small quantity of oatmeal, we determined to start for the nearest sandbank. A sixty gallon cask of beer, two six dozen cases of wine, a piece of bad pork, and the oatmeal, were the only things saved from the wreck. We turned the raft, and after a severe day's work reached the bank about sunset, and once more put our feet upon dry land. We had only eaten once, and then but sparingly. Thus we lived fourteen days and nights, subsisting on sharks' flesh and the wine and beer we saved. Not a drop of water was to be had. On the 20th of April we saw a vessel to the leeward of us, and endeavoured to attract her attention by means of a boat- [boathook] hook and a shirt attached; but she did not or would not see us. The next day, about one hour before sun- [sunset] set, another vessel hove in sight, and about the same spot the ship of the previous evening was seen. We again hoisted our signal, and walked about the bank, to show there were living creatures on it. We thought she did not see us, and after taking our allowance of oatmeal and shark's flesh we lay down for the night's rest, in a short time, however, we were alarmed by the barking of our dog, and on getting on our legs dis- [discovered] covered, to our delight, a boat close in upon the sands. She belonged to the vessel we had seen in the evening. The mate and one of the passengers went on board that night, and the rest of the survivors were taken off the next morning, when we were conveyed safely to the Mauritius. The ship and cargo were insured for 25,000. -- PREPARATIONS FOR THE RECEPTION OF JENNY LIND IN AMERICA.-The correspondent of the Daily News, writing from New York, by the last steamer, says Jenny Lind, as the steam agents would say, is due here on Satur- [Star- Saturday] day next. Of course there is much anxiety to hear this Swedish nightingale. Her manager, or lessee, Mr. Barnum, fully sensible of the enormous risk he has in- [incurred] curred, [cured] has no expense in preparing the American public for her reception. All the leading journals have been taken in hand, all the attaches of the press have been se- [secured] cured in her favour an immense hall has been erected in which she is to sing; a two hundred dollar premium has been offered for the best words of a national Yankee song for her to sing, and the price of five dollars per ticket has been set as that of admission. We can scarcely conceive of a vocal excellence which will warrant the enormous out- [outlay] lay that Mr. Barnum has undertaken. And yet there is hardly a respectable American that will not go at least once to hear her. Persons who have to depend on their personal exertions from day to day for their support will depr ve [dear ve] themselves of some enjoyments in order to hear her. Apartments are taken for her at one of our principal hotels, and they are being fitted up in almost a regal manner for her reception. All this proceeding is characteristic but as we believe Jenny Lind to be an angel in private life, the excess of our admiration in advance may be set down as much to the charms of her character as to the excitability of our own. STEAM PLouGHING.-In [Ploughing.-In] the deep flat lands of Grims- [Grimes- Crimson] thorpe, near Bourne, in Lincolnshire, a very spirited experi- [experience- experiment] ment [men] is being made by Lord Willoughby d'Eresby [d'Crosby] for sub- [substituting] stituting [stating] steam power for horses in ploughing. I'his sub- [subject] ject [jet] has long attracted the attention of far-seeing agricul- [Agricola- agriculturists] turists; [tourists] and, notwithstanding considerable practical diffi- [diff- difficulties] tulties, [duties] there is reason to believe that they may and will eventually be surmounted. Even should the plan of plough- [ploughing] ing by steam be so far brought to perfection as to be appli- [apply- applicable] cable to subsoiling and deepening the soil a vast step in ad- [advance] vance will have been made. Lord Willoughby d'Eresby [d'Crosby] is taking the best means of bringing this improvement to bear, for he has not only undertaken the somewhat costly Seer monk himself, but has enabled others to do so, by ublishing [publishing] plans and explanations of the different parts of steam plough.-Eastern Counties Herald. A SrneuLaR [Singular] RounD [Round] oF PERFORMANCEsS.-The [Performance.-The] es- [Austrian] trian [train] Mountjoy has been performing some extraordi [extraordinary] ary [art] feats, showing both strength and suppleness of limb. He first walked a half-mile in 43 minutes; and then backwards the same distance in 6 minutes. He then ran the distance of half-a-mile in 4 minutes; hopped on his right leg 200 yards in three-quarters of a minute ran 200 yards in the same time as nearly as possible; picked up 40 eggs, one yard apart each, with his mouth, not allowing his knees to touch the ground, in 103 [W minutes. These he dropped into a bucket of water without breaking any, and he then cleared 30 steeple chase hurdles in the almost incredible time of 8 minutes He concluded his feats by shooting three pigeons as they fiew [few] out of a trap at a distance of 20 ee The whole of the above was performed in 13 minutes. THE RIGHTs [Rights] OF THE NEGKO [NECK] IN THE UNITED StaTES.- [States.- States] The Norfolk Beacon thus notices a practice which has recently grown up in that city About twenty-five were arrested yesterday and taken before his Honour the Mayor for violating the States law against slaves making their own bargains, and receiving the money for their services. They were discharged upon producing their badges. It will be recollected that there isa corpo- [corps- corporation] ration law which allows to work and receive their money by paying a tax of one dollar and taking a badge. No more badges will be granted hereafter, as the corpora- [corporation] tion [ion] law conflicts with the State law on the subject. We are glad to see this movement, for really the n have become so independent under the present system, that it is almost impossible to get one to do a day's work, anda [and] change is loudly called for. FaTHer [Father] Icnatius.-On [Lunatics.-On] Friday last, says the Shields Gazette, the Hon. and Rev. George Spencer, brother to the present Earl Spencer, delivered a lecture in the Catholic Chapel, Bedford-street, North Shields- On the prospect of the conversion of England. The reverend gentleman was formerly a clergyman of the Church of England, and held a living worth 7,000 per annum, which he left about about eighteen months ago, when he became a convert to Roman Catholicism. He is now a monk of the strict men dicant [cant] order of the Passion, sworn to poverty, and named Father Ignatius, He wears a coarse woollen habit and no stockings or shoes, his feet being protected by sandals. THE END OF A SPANISH BRIGAND LEADER.-A despatch from General La Rocha to the Spanish war-office, and a letter from the spot, published in a Madrid journal an- [announce] nounce [ounce] the death of Baliarda, [Billiard] who, with a few followers, has laterally given so much trouble to the authorities and troops in Catalonia. It appears that he had returned to gone to his native place, San Andres de Palomar, of which General La Rocha received information, and ordered Brigadier Vivé, [Vice] chief of the Catalin [Clinical] police force, to endeavour to surprise and ca ture [true] him. The result was, that he was surprised on the night of the 27th ult. in the house of his mother, where he was staying with his aber and one of bis They re the sum- [sums] ns to surrender, and fired upon the police, when the latter broke into the house. Batiarda [Barnard] shot the policeman who first seized him, and was shot himself, together with his follower, who were both killed, and his brother was wounded, but to get off. One of the police wag killed, and another severely wounded, LANCASHIRE PUBLIC SCHOOL ASSOCIATION. val Tuesday evening week, a meeting of the gene of this association was held in their rooms, in Cross-street, Manchester, for the discussion of im- t business intended to come before the educa- [Edgar- educational] tional [national] conference, proposed to be held in October, and for the promotion, by preparatory arrangements, oa successful issue to that meeting. The following gentle- [gentlemen] men were among those present -Alexander Esq., M.P., president of the association the Revs. W. F. Walker, of Oldham Win. M'Kerrow, [M'Kerr] Francis Tucker, and Dr. Beard, of Manchester; Alexander Jack, of Dunbar; Messrs. A. Winterbottom, J. C. Dyer, S. P. Robinson, Wm. M'Call, H. J. Leppoe, [Lepton] Nicholas Heald, William M'Cartney, [M'Courtney] Walter Ferguson, and W. A. Jevons, [Evans] of Liverpool Thomas Emmott, of Oldhan [Oldham] Thomas Satterthwaite, Dr. Allan, Dr. Watts, John M'Kerrow, [M'Kerr] H. R. Forrest, Charles Pountney, W. J. Keighley, Thomas Goadsby, [Goods] Joseph Ashworth, William Heywood, William Frost, John Edmund, &e. The Rev. Wa. M'Kerrow [M'Kerr] presided. After the transaction of some routine busi- [bus- business] ness, Mr. R. W. SMILEs, [Miles] the secretary to the association, read extracts from letters relative to the proposed edu- [ed- educational] cational [national] conference, which had been received from gentlemen resident in various parts of the country. We subjoin some of these extracts - Joaeph [Joseph] Batley, Esq., of Armitage Bridge, Huddersfield, says- [still] illi [ill] do what I can to promote the objet [object] in the Pee The bulk of the ulation [population] are decidedly favourable to secular education. ft as been my opinion for some time that the association, instead of being provincial, should have been national. I hope it will be made such at the October meeting. ; I have no doubt that a course of judicious agitation, leaving open the minute details, would, ere long, bring public opinion to decide on a national provision for popular educa- [Edgar- education] tion, [ion] supported by local rates, and free from government control. Mr. J. B. Robinson, Marsden, near Huddersfield, writes- [writes my] My best wishes are with you, and I trust your efforts to make it a national movement will be crowned with specdy [speedy] success; its ultimate triumph is certain. In my own humble sphere I shall do my best to bring about this much-to- [tone] be-wished-for [wished-for] consumm on, [Commons on] feeling convinced that the Lancashire system is the most perfect which has yet been brought before the public. Mr. John Stores Smith, Halifax, writes - T intend to be at the conference, and shall rejoice if you find it practicable to create a good national movement. Mr. Douglas Jerrold writes- [writes] I beg to assure you, that in so far as it may be within my humble means, I shall hold it equally a pleasure and a duty to advance the purpose sought by your Association. Letters, expressive of cordial sympathy with the objects of the association, and assenting to co-operate with it, have been received from E. Higginson, Wake- [Wakefield] field Messrs. George Dawson and J. S. Gilbert, Bir- [Sir- Birmingham] mingham, [Birmingham] &c., &e. The CHaIRMAN, [Chairman] in opening the deliberations of the evening, said he thought they had good reason to be well satisfied with the progress they had made, and the great encouragement they had received to increased vigour and unflagging perseverance. (Hear.) They continued unshaken in their attachment to the principles of the Association they saw these principles progressing steadily in publie [public] favour; they were more than ever convinced of the necessity which existed for their adoption, and they were therefore bound to employ every means they could command to extend enlightenment on the subject, and thereby increase their power, and hasten the desired end. (Applause.) He was gratified in noticing that the virulence of the opposition with which they had been assailed was abating, and churchmen and dissenters would alike, he thought, be forced ere long to admit, that the voluntary educational agencies they were em- [employing] ploying [playing] were doing comparatively little good-no good, in fact, to the most necessitous; for while they cheapened education to the middle classes, they alto- [altogether] gether [ether] failed to bring it within the reach of the very poor and neglected class. (Hear.) He felt satisfied that if they commenced the operations with spirit and earnestness, they would make that would alike surprise and gratify them. The Rev. Dr. BearD [Bear] rose to move the following resolution - That in the opinion of this meeting it is expedient to make the Lancashire Public School Association a national association, and to prepare an educational bill for parlia- [Parliament- parliament] ment, [men] based on the principles of the association. Half a million of children, he observed, were receiving instruction in the Irish government schools; the system was steadily growing in favour and usefulness in that country, and he did not see why the queen and the go- [government] vernment [Government] should not sanction a like system here, as they had done in Ireland. The suggestion that they should establish one or two more experimental or illustrative schools, might, he thought, be worthy of their con- [consideration] sideration. [side ration] He believed many persons would be ready to give their support to such an experiment; indeed, he knew one gentleman who was prepared to give 20 a year towards the experiment. With respect to the general agitation of the question, it must be borne in mind that if they would succeed, their efforts must be greater than ever, and a large increase of funds was essential, for without this it would be idle to attempt a national association. (Hear.) They ought to have a revenue of at least 2,000, and the Manchester subscrip- [subscribe- subscriptions] tions [tins] should rise from 500 to 1,000 a-year. Mr. H. R. Forrest seconded the resolution, and stated his strong impression that it would have been well had the association adopted this course three years since. Mr. J.C. Dyer thought it an important point for con- [consideration] sideration [side ration] whether the association, by being made national, would risk the compromise, or surrender any of its distinctive principles. He thought an alteration of the character of the association was not for a moment to be thought of at this price. (Hear, hear.) Dr. Warts said their difficulty would be to keep the association local, not to make it national. Branch asso- [ass- associations] ciations, [association] in addition to those in Lancashire, were already formed, or the germ of them was in existence, in Bir- [Sir- Birmingham] mingham, [Birmingham] Leeds, Sheffield, Huddersfield, Macclesfield, Bradford, Leicester, Coventry, and other towns in the different counties of England; and the progress their opinions had made in all directions made the question of extending the operations of the association one beyond dispute. Scarcely a town had been tested on their prin- [pain- principles] ciples, [piles] but it responded favourably. (Applause.) The Rev. W. F. WaLKER [Walker] supported the resolution, and stated his impression that the population generally could not reasonably be expected to interest themselves much in the object of the association, or exercise any considerable degree of influence in its behalf, if it only contemplated a system to be confined to the county of Lancaster. (Hear.) He thought that they would, by labouring for a national system, so greatly increase their power as to hasten very much the attainment of their object, either in whole or in part. (Hear.) Dr. Hoveson [Hives] said that he thought the propriety of making the association national would mainly depend on the amount of support which could be secured. He believed that the educational committee of council were much dissatisfied with the present working of their sys- [says- systems] tems, [terms] and were conscious of having irsecoverably [irrecoverable] alienated the high church party. If their system broke down the committee would be constrained to set up such a system as was advocated by the association. (Hear.) He believed that some of the more liberal friends of education in higher places would not be un- [unwilling] willing that pressure from without should be applied to them, as they could not be expected to introduce a liberal educational measure to the present House of Commons, unless the opinion of the people in its favour was unequivocally expressed. (Applause.) Mr. ALEXANDER Henry, M.P., urged the propriety of increasing the power and usefulness of the Association by means of lectures and other agencies. He was con- [convinced] vinced, [evinced] by observation and experience, that they would require the greatest possible enlargement of their power to attain this object, opposed as they were by the bishops in the House of Lords, in some degree by the court and the aristocracy and the government, not to speak of the House of Commons, which was nearly, if not quite, as bad as any of the other powers. (Hear, and laughter) In relation to Mr. Fox's bill, the hon. gentleman ex- [explained] plained that he had assented to put his name on the back of the bill-it being a necessary form that at least two members endorse all private bills-for the simple and sole object of raising a discussion on the question in the house. (Hear). He felt it due to himself, as president of this association, to offer this explanation to prevent misunderstanding. The minority who divided with Mr. Fox, though small, was highly intellectual, and composed, generally, of members representing large and influential constituencies; and this was, so far, encouraging. (Hear, and applause.) He expressed his strong wish to promote the objects and principles of the ascociation, [association] and his determination to exercise any influence he might possess to extend its influence, and secure the end it desired. (Applause.) He was quite aware that increased means were essential to increased success; and under this impression, he would have great pleasure in doubling his subscription. (Applause.) Mr. ARCHIBALD WINTERBOTTOM approved cordifily [cordially] the idea of extending the association. The grand work they had to perform, and all they required to secure speedy Success, was to extend, as widely as possible, a know- [knowledge] ledge of their principles. Their plan was not so ex- [extensively] tensively [extensively] known throughout the country as it deserved to be-(hear)-and effective lectures only could diffuse the necessary information. He disapproved the idea of model schools, set up or maintained by the association- [association this] this would only be a dissipation of their energies. (Hear, hear). He deprecated, also, any interference with the plan. Re-modelling might be necessary if they doubted the justice or truth of their principles, but they were satisfied that they were good; and he therefore thought their course was clear, to adhere to the great outline, and resist all overtures to re-modelling, which would end in nothing. (Applause.) Mr. S. P. RoBinson [Robinson] next addressed the meeting. The Rev. F. Tucker supported the resolution, reported the progress which the association was which had come under his own observation in Kent, Bristol, and other counties and places in the south, which were for the adoption of their principles, if they were presented, and e resolution was then put and carried nem.
