The offence was acknowledged, and the bench ordered Dodson to pay the expenses. cacTion [action] TO THE PoLicE.-On [Police.-On] Saturday last, at the Guildhall, a charge was preferred by policeman Heywood Robert Driver, for being drunk and committing on fim [firm] an assault. The offence was alleged to have been com- [committed] mitted [fitted] on the previous Sunday morning, in Cross Grove- [Grove street] street, aout [out] twenty minutes to two o'clock. Heywood sid he had complained to defendant against creating a when he became very abusive, and refusing to &qove [love] on Was taken into custody. The story given by Driver, and a witness whom he called, threw a very differ- [different] ent [end] lizht [light] on the whole affair, and the charge was returned aminst [amongst] the officer for having created the disturbance, and whothen [who then] used unnecessary violence in quelling it. Under the creumstances [circumstances] the magistrates discharged the case, at the same time cautioning Heywood against displaying such rolence [silence] of temper, as a public officer, as had been clearly made manifest in the case before the court. OBSTRUCTING THE RalLway.-Mr. [Railway.-Mr] Batley, solicitor, of the frm [from] of Brook, Freeman, and Batley, eppeered [appeared] at the Guilduall, [Guildhall] on Tuesday last, on behalf of the London and North Western Railway Company, to prosecute Jonathan Grecnievod, [Greenfield] for having on the 8rd [ord] inst. placed his cart on the London and North Western Railway, at the crossing at Low Westwood Quarry, thereby endangering the lives of the passengers, The cart had been so carelessly placed, that on the arrival of a goods train the engine smashed it al to pieces. It is very probable that had a passenger train arrived first, serions [serious] injury might have resulted. Greenwood acknowledged the offence, but pleaded that it was done quite unintentionally. Mr. Batley then inti- [into- intimated] mated that as the defendant had acknowledged the charge, the company were not desirous of pressing it further, and on the condition of the defendant apologising, and paying the expeuses, [expenses] Mr. Batley said that he was instruc [instruct] towithdraw [to withdraw] thesummonses. [the summonses] The bench at once acquiesced in such an arrangement, and after cautioning Greenwood tw be more careful in future, ordered him to pay expenses. Ay OLD SrynER.-On [Serene.-On] Tuesday last, at the Guildhall, before Joseph Armitage and W. W. Battye, Esqrs., [Esquires] In- [Inspector] spector [inspector] Townend charged Joseph Crosland with being érunk [Trunk] and disorderly on the 13th inst. During the evidence itwas [its] stated that the defendant, who is a very old man, hul [Hull] been two or three times previously before their wor- [or- worships] ships, and was in the habit whilst on the spree, of shame- [shamefully] fully ill-using his wife, and pawning everything he could lay on for drink. His wife had borne all this pa- [patently] id found the means of relieving him from his pre- [previous] vious [pious] difficulties, but would not doso [dose] any more.

The announcemeut [announcement] of this festival, naturally excited a deep ine [in] pointed. It is difficult to complete arrangements ft i store provincial audience a party of the first of the London musical world, but whenever this can be accomplished, the opportunity so presented is eagerly seized. We love to hear the master spirits of our age pour forth their song, and to sit as listeners within their ere to hear their rich sweet echoin [echoing] eath [earth] th -swelling i their mellowed fulness, [Furness] as th ted eng je ae ey steal upon the senses or die in gentle cadences, as th 2 upon the ear. as they reveberate [reverberate] in softness Nor is this an idle fancy-an h pleasure to be enjoyed and forgotten as 2 dream. Our tame has passed beyond the domination of those who would seek to mould the mind in the narrow conven- [coven- conventionalities] tionalities [penalties] of a life sans song and music and pleasure and gathered within its recognised educational materiel, the potency, the influence, the sweet power of music. And, though our steps be slow, there are those who will live to hear the classical compositions of Haydn, Mozart, Handel, Beethoven, and Mendlesshon, [Mendelssohn] sung and played in the homes of the English people, mingled with the lighter melodies and chamber music of their less assuming contemporaries. It is for this we seek to draw the taste from scenes of soulless indulgence-of insipid noise and bawling-and bring within the com- [compass] pass of every-day life the objects for creating a more re- [refined] fined and elevated taste for the true and i ink ne e and good of music, There's music in all things, if men had ears ; Believing also, That the man that hath no music in himse [himself] or is not moved with concord of sweet on Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils, We recognise then within our notions of 'progress as elements for good the musical societies of our country ; and in narrowing our circle of observation, we feel a pride in claiming for our immediate locality a pre- [preeminence] eminence in this res We make the claim unhesi- [unless- unhesitatingly] tatingly, [tingly] with the perfect consciousness that within no limit of the same extent will be found choral and phil- [Phil- philharmonic] harmonic societies pretending claims of a higher cha- [ca- character] racter. [Carter] Influenced by the fact of occupying so high a position, there is scarcely a village in our immediate vicinity which has not its choral or philharmonic society. In some the degree of perfection is higher than in others, but all of them are highly creditable to their directors and supporters. Amongst those which stand foremost will be ranked the choir of Golcar, whence have risen and are still being educated some of our leading chorus singers; and to their spirit and taste, under the clergymen of the locality, we are in- [indebted] debted [debt] for one of the richest and most admirable per- [performances] formances [performance] with which we have been honoured for many years. In engaging Miss Birch, Mrs. Sunderland, Miss Wood, Mrs. Lister Peace, Mr. Lockey, and Mr. Machin, as vocal performers, Mr. Seymour, Mr. Bowling, Mr. Wustemann, [Western] Mr. Ellwood, and many of equal merit in the instrumental department, they catered so liberally as to render a failure impossible. The celebration of the festival was fixed for last Wednesday, in St. John's church, Golear, [Golcar] on which occasion were assembled many of the elite of the ladies, gentry, and clergy of the district. The programme had been selected from the principal masters with great taste, and embodied some of the richest airs, recitatives, and chorusses [chorus] from The Creation, The Messiah, Elijah, Sampson, and Judas Maccabseus. [Maccabeus. Mr. Machin, Mr. Lockey, Miss Birch, and Mrs. Sunderland, were in excellent voice; and the choruses and instru- [inst- instrumental] mental performers were well-trained, and accomplished their duties with admirable taste and skill. The entire performances were given with the utmost eclat. The first selection was from Haydn's Creation. The beautiful recitatives, airs, and choruses of which were rendered with great force and pathos. In the air With verdure clad, Miss Birch revelled in the magnificent resources of her powers, and gave the whole passage with the most exquisite feeling and finish. The magnificent tenor of Mr. Lockey was rich in the recitative, In splendour bright is rising now the sun, and in the lines With softer beams and milder light Steps on the silver moon through silent night, there was an especial sweetness and softness of tone. The beautiful chorus, The heavens are telling, was well given and some portions of the recitative, Straight opening her fertile womb, by Mr. Machin, was remark- [remarkably] ably fine, as also the song, How heaven in fullest glory shone. The song, In native worth and honour clad, was beautifully sung by Mr. Lockey; and the last line, Bespeak him love, and joy, and bliss, was exquisite. In the recitative, Comfort ye my people, he was equally happy, and displayed powers of execu- [exec- execution] tion [ion] of the highest order. Mrs. Sunderland rendered the air, Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion, with great beauty. After the fine Hallelujah Chorus, Miss Birch's I know that my Redeemer liveth [liver was one of the morceaus [Mercers] of the festival. The instrumental accom- [com- accompaniments] paniments [payments] were skilfully managed, and Mr. violin playing was particularly deserving of notice. During the second part of the programme Mr. Machin was very rich and excellent in the air, He layeth [layer] the beams, from Handel, and the chorus, When his loud voice in thunder spoke, was rendered with very great ability, both instrumentally and vocally. The trio from Elijah, by Miss Birch, Mrs. Sunderland, and Miss Wood, Lift thine eyes to the mountains, was very pretty. The air, Let the bright seraphim in burning row, from Sampson, by Miss Birch, with trum- [rum- trumpet] pet obligato [obliged] by Mr. Ellwood, was a performance of the highest order. The obligato [obliged] to this air was one of the most splendid performances, and displayed very supe- [sue- superior] rior [Rio] executive powers and taste. We do not think Mr. Ellwood would have suffered in the comparison with the first trumpeters of the day in this special accompani- [company- accompaniment] ment. [men] It is seldom we have heard a sweeter song, and one given with greater effect than the fine air from Sampson, Total Eclipse no sun, no moon by Mr. Lockey. The noble air, Arm, arm, ye brave a noble cause, was one of Mr. Machin's happiest efforts. Clarke's air, Praise him in the cymbals, by Mrs. Sun- [Sunderland] derland, [Sunderland] was sweetly sung, and the organ obligato, [obliged] by Mr. Parratt, was very good. We regret that the splen- [spleen- splendid] did choruses, How excellent thy name, O Lord, and To Thee Cherubim and Seraphim continually do cry, were completely marred by the second trumpeter. The most exquisite air, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Al- [Almighty] mighty, was rendered by Miss Birch, with a feeling and execution, to our minds, surpassing any other portions of the festival. The line Who was, and is, and is to come, was given with a sweetness and volume of tone we have scarcely ever heard equalled. The other airs, recita- [recital- recitatives] tives, [lives] and choruses, were deserving of the highest praise. Considering the difficulties under which Mr. Seymour laboured, we are sure his orchestra was fully equal to what the most sanguine could have expected. We might mention the names of Mrs. Lister Peace, Mrs. J. Peace, Miss Wood, Miss Castle, and Miss Whit- [Whitham] ham Mr. George Wilkinson, Mr. Brook (Barnsley), Mr. Mellor (Leeds), Mr. Hirst, and Mr. Amos Quarmby, in the choruses; and Mr. Parratt, Mr. Bowling, Mr. Crowther, Mr, Ellwood, and Mr. Wustermann, [Western] as deserving especial notice for the manner in which they acquitted them- [themselves] selves. . We should be doing Mr. Seymour an injustice if we were not to express our strongest approbation of his violin performances, and of his skill and management as a conductor and leader. The festival terminated about seven o'clock in the evening. We understand the surplus will be appropri- [appropriate- appropriated] ated [acted] to the enlargement of the national schools. --- -- PRINCE ALBERT AND THE FREEMASONS. We under- [understand] stand that the Grand Lodge of Freemasons of Scotland has come to the resolution that the different lodges cannot walk in ion at the laying of the foundation stone on the Mound, on the 30th, [the] Prince Albert not being one of the craft, and having scruples about being initiated. The lodges in England, from some strange notions of loyalty, consented to appear at the laying of the foundation stones of the Corn Exchange and the Masonic Almshouses in London, but their sturdier brethren of the north have una- [unanimously] nimously [unanimously] agreed to allow our Lord Provost and the other functionaries to e the business themselves. Thus, one of the greatest features of the Queen's visit of 1850 will be done away with. The brethren, however, are to dine at their respective rendezvous on the evening in question.- [question] Edinburgh News. Lota [Lot] Montes [Months] Acain.-We [Again.-We] find the following in the Assemblee [Assembled] Nationale, [National] copied from the Bulletin de Paris [Paris] The tranquil quarter of the Villa Beaujon [Bacon] was on Sunday thrown into agitation by one of the most striking incidents -Madame Lola Montes [Months] had taken for fifteen years a mag- [magnificent] nificent [magnificent] hotel belonging to M. Rosa. She caused it to be furnished with splendour. Turkey carpets of great value ornamented all the apartments during the winter season. The most curious and rare furniture was bought of a tradesman, who, seduced by the reputation of the great fortune of the romantic adventurer, had sufficient confidence to give credit for six months. On Sunday, the day on which a large sum fell due, the furniture man pre- [presented] sented [scented] himself, but Madame Lola begged him to call again at the end of the week, on account of the absence of her hus- [his- husband] band, who had forgotten to leave the money. During this time Madame Lola made preparations for leaving, and caused vehicles to be sent for to remove her goods. The upholsterer, informed of this, hastened to the Villa Beaujon, [Bacon] and found himself in the midst of the confusion ca by the removal of his furniture. A great uproar took place, and the commissary of police and some of the other cre- [re- creditors] ditors, [auditors] who had been apprised of what was ing on, arrived. Among the tors was M. Jacquand, [Jacquard] a cele- [cell- celebrated] brated [rated] painter, to whom a large sum was due for portraits of the lady. Surprised in the midst of these preparations for flight, the lady was not disconcerted for a single instant she pretended that she was di to pay, that her husband had sent her the money for that purpose, but that she had lost the key of her cashbox. [cash box] She the cre- [re- creditors] ditors [auditors] to wait for a moment whilst she went for a locksmith, but neither lady nor locksmith appeared, Madame Lola had entered a vehicle which was waiting for her in the Avenue de Chateaubriand, near the Barriére [Barrier] de Y Etoile, [Toilet] and had disappeared like a shadow, without saying when phe [the] would return, DISTRICT NEWS. HOLMFIRTH. HIncauirr [hindrance] MiLt.-The [Mile.-The] teachers, scholars, and friends, im [in] connection with the Wesleyan Sunday-school of this village took tea together, in the school-room, to the number of 150, in the afternoon of Monday last. The occasion on which they had assembled together was the prescntation [presentation] to the Rev. John Hanson, Wesleyan minis- [minister] ter, [te] (at present at Holmfirth, but just about to leave for Runcorn,) of Gresswell's masterly work on the Holy Scriptures. The gift comprised no less than twelve volumes, beautifully and substantially bound, and pecu- [Peru- generally] niarily [nearly] worth some ten guineas. This appropriate testi- [test- testimonial] monial [manual] was got up as a mark of appreciation of the series of valuable lectures and lessons imparted to the Hinchliff Mill scholars, by the reverend gentleman, under Mim- [Min- Impress] priss's [press's] admirable system of education. Mr. John Roberts, ee peat over the proceedings, the en- [enough] of which were of a ve i d ifyi [if] ry pleasing and gratifying THE Moors.-The shooting surrounding Holmfirth has, been eagerly traversed by ground more immediately during the current week, ' the usually full number of practised sportsmen. The opening day, especially in the afternoon, was unfavourably wet, heavy thunder showers prevailing at short intervals; since then, the weather has been all that could be desired. The birds are strong and plentiful, though wild and difficult to get near. The number shot, however, has been, upon the whole, fully the average of previous years. CuEap [Cheap] Trip.-A lodge of Odd-fellows, at Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field, having projected an excursion, by rail, to Holm- [Holmfirth] firth, about two hundred of them arrived in a special train, in the forenoon of Sunday last. Having formed in procession, they proceeded to New Mill. Here they dined, and afterwards pursued their course to the Me- [Methodist] thodist [Methodist] chapel, at Jackson-bridge, where a truly good sermon was preached to them by Mr. James Wood, local preacher, of Hepworth. At the close of the service a collection was made, amounting to the very handsome sum of 14. Half this amount was handed over to the managers of the Sabbath School at Jackson-bridge, the remainder being ap- [appropriated] propriated [appropriated] to the Widow and Orphans' Fund connected with the order. Besides this number of Odd Fellows who visited Holmfirth on this occasion, was a large number of pleasure-seekers from Huddersfield and the intermediate stations, which swelled the total amount to upwards of twelve hundred souls. The whole number was conveyed here at twice-the entire carriages required for this purpose being not less then thirty- [thirds] six. Of course the inns at Holmfirth were at once thrown open for the accommodation of this immense body and the various proprietors inevitably reaped a plenteous harvest. The trippers were all safely con- [conveyed] veyed [eyed] back about ten o'clock the same night, nor did a single mishap occur to mar the day's enjoyment. MAGISTRATES COURT, TOWN-HALL, August 10. BEFORE JOSEPH CHARLSWORTH AND JOSEPH Moor- [Moorhouse] HOUSE, Esgrs. [Egress] AssavuLt.-John [Assault.-John] Beevor, of Longley, charged Samuel Broadbent, of Hades; George Lee, of Lower Bent 3; and David Tyas, of Long Ing, in the township of Wooldale, with having committed an unprovoked and unjustifiable assault upon him late on the night of Saturday the 27th ult. Complainant stated that on the night in question, having been making some trifling purchases at Holm- [Holmfirth] firth, he was proceeding quietly homewards when the three defendants issued from a beer-house in Under- [Underbank] bank, and followed him as far as Ubberton. [Burton] Here they overtook, and seizing violently hold of him, actually made him perform the singular feat of standing on his head By this treatment Beavor [Beaver] averred the sum of two-and-fourpence was lost out of his pocket. Amongst the marketings meetings which he was carrying home were some new potatoes; these the men took faom [from] him, and walking forwards to a neighbouring house, coolly got them cooked and eat them for supper. The assault being considered sufficiently proved, Broadbent-a fellow of previously bad character-was fined 5s., the ee are 2s, 6d. only, the expenses in each case being Os. Pay your Rates -The overseer of Cartworth, sum- [summoned] moned [mined] Edward Robinson, coach-builder, of Hollow-gate, for non-payment of a poor-rate. The magistrates made an order of 10s. 44d., with 3s. costs-The same indi- [India- individual] vidual [individual] was next required, by the surveyor of the same township, to show cause why he had neglected to pay his highway-rate. In this case, also, an order was levied for 1 Os. 9d., the costs being 3s. SOUTH CROSLAND. THUNDER StorM.-A [Storm.-A] slight thunderstorm passed over this neighbourhood on Monday afternoon last, which though but of short duration was productive of some little damage. One old house, used partially as a weaving shop, was struck by the lightning, between four and five o'clock in the afternoon. The mullion of the upper window was forced in two inches, and one pane of glass removed perfectly out. The corresponding window of the lower storey had also a pane taken clean out, and an earthenware pot, which stood on the win- [window] dow [down] sill, was thrown into the middle of the room, and broken into a thousand pieces. In the same room was a press bedstead, which was split at both ends. A lamp in one of the rooms up-stairs was also considerably damaged. Fortunately, no one was in the house at the time. On being entered about ten minutes' afterwards it was full of smoke, which had a strong sulphurious [sulphuric] smell, LONGWOOD. Lonewoop [Lockwood] TuHump. -This Thump. -This] noted feast commenced on Sunday last, with all the preparations for good eating and drinking which these occasions usually call forth and, from the fact of the London and North Western Railway Company running no fewer than three special trains on that day to Marsden and back, it may be inferred that ample justice was done to the roast beef, plum pudding, and all the other et ceteras [terrace] cus- [us- customary] tomary [Mary] at these times. Monday, proving a wet day, threw a damper upon the Thump. During the in- [intervals] tervals [intervals] between the rain, however, there were several donkey races, foot races, pole climbing, &c. for legs of mutton, hats, &. Tuesday being a comparatively fine day, caused Milnsbridge and Longwood to be completely thronged by pleasure seekers. Considering that the Thump has this year occurred at the same time as Slaithwaite Feast, it may be said that it has passed off much as on former occasions. MILNSBRIDGE. Beer-Hovuse [Beer-House] Conviction.-On Saturday last, before the sitting magistrates, at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, John Baxendale was convicted in the penalty of 40s. and expenses, for keeping his house open for the sale of beer during church hours. Mr. Superintendent Heaton, in laying the charge, said he had received information that the inhabitants whilst going to church or the other places of worship, were being continually annoyed by drunken men, whose conduct was very objectionable, and they were desirous that the evil should be remedied. In pursuance of this desirable object, Mr. Heaton had his attention drawn to Baxendale's beer-house on Sun- [Sunday] day morning se'nnight, [se'night] about a quarter before eleven o'clock. He observed Mr. Baxendale carefully on the look-out for unwelcome visitors, and immediately Mr. Heaton made his appearance there was a run to a mys- [mysterious] terious-looking [serious-looking -looking] summer-house connected with the pre- [premises] mises [Miss] Mr. Heaton followed, and arrived in time to find some fifteen men, most of them in their working clothes, secreted in the summer-house in the garden, where there were also a number of pots, but no beer in them, the spirit having vanished behind the summer-house as the portly person of Mr. Heaton advanced upon its front. One of the party was so drunk that his com- [companions] panions [pains] had to paddle him home. SLAITHWAITE. SuarrawalTe [Scarlet] Frast.-The [Fast.-The] beautiful little village of Slaithwaite, during the past week, has been the scene of unusual festivity, gaiety, and hospitality. On every hand the strong odour of roast beaf, [Beef] and its accompany- [accompanying] ing the plum pudding, greeted the olfactory nerves, producing sensations of a most agreeable nature-the more 80, because they could easily be gratified. But there were other sights which, though of a different character, were not less cheering and animating. Slaithwaite seemed as if it had donned an extra Sunday attire, and its smart buxsome [boxes] lasses, dressed all in their best, filled your mind with visions of a land of beauty, peace, and plenty and we are sure that many a lowly swain must have sighed away his heart a thousand times amid the galaxy of beauty which surrounded him. There was no lack of fun and frolic, and the order of the day was to live and be merry,'-to laugh and grow fat. SCAMMONDEN. AssAULT [Assault] AND RoBBERY.-The [Robbery.-The] two persons who were re- [remanded] manded [Madden] the previous Thursday on a charge of committing a robbery upon Benjamin Garside, were again placed be- [before] fore the magistrates at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Saturday. The charge was prosecuted by Mr. Drans- [Drains- Dransfield] field, solicitor, on behalf of Garside, and defended by Mr. Clough, for the two prisoners, James Balmforth and Thomas Pearson. From the evidence it appeared that Garside was in company with the defendants at a public- [public house] house at Poole, on Tuesday, the 6th inst. After having drunk pretty freely, he left the house, when the two prisoners followed him. He had not proceeded far be- [before] fore he was knocked down, but was too drunk to know whether the blows were struck from a person in front or behind. On recovering himself he found he had been relieved of one crown piece, two half-crowns, and five shillings, one of which was rather peculiar from being flushed, as if it had been struck. In the morning he went back again to Poole, thence to Mrs. beer-shop, at Thorne, and cautioned her against receiving a shilling, which he described, from Pearson or Balmforth. Whilst there the prisoner Pearson came into the house, and, after calling for some beer, ten- [tendered] dered [deed] a shilling in payment, which on being handed to the prosecutor was immediately recognised as the one he had lost. Information was given to the constable, Wadsworth, and the parties taken into custody; but no money was found in their possession. During the ex- [examination] amination [examination] it came out that Garside had accepted 15s. from Pearson's brother under the promise that he would not push his evidence further than he could avoid. For thus compromising the felony he was severely repri- [repair- reprimanded] manded [Madden] by the bench. The prisoners were then com- [com] mitted [fitted] to the sessions, ALMONDBURY. TEMPERANCE GaLa.-The [Gala.-The] annual gala of the Almond- [Almondbury] pury [pure] Temperance Society was held last Saturday, in a field leading out of Fenay-lane. This event is one which is generally looked forward to as the gala par of this neighbourhood-and has hitherto been visited by thousands of pleasure-seekers. On this occasion the attendance was searcely [scarcely] so numerous, arising most pro- [probably] bably [ably] from the unpleasantness of the weather, and the ircumstance existence] that the gala had been postponed from the previous Monday. There were all the usual arrange- [arrangements] ments [rents] for enjoyment and amusement in the attendance of quadrille bands, swing ropes, a galvanic battery, and 80 forth. During the evening one or two balloons were let off, one of which, unfortunately, took fire in rising. The festivities were kept up till a late hour. KIRKBURTON. Drunk anD [and] DisorpDERLY.-Judging [Disorderly.-Judging] from the onerous duties which have lately devolved upon the shoulders of Mr. Constable Glover, the good people of Kirkburton must be indulging more liberally in the good things of this life than they have been formerly accustomed to. Certain it is, that drunken brawls have within the past week or two created no little annoyance to the more peaceably disposed of that locality. Determined to at least mitigate the evil, Glover appeared at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Tuesday last, against several persons on charges of being drunk and disorderly. The first complaint was laid against Luke Sutcliffe, for disturbing the public peace on the 27th. [the] Joseph Jepson, Benjamin Scaife, John Kaye, and Matthew Lockwood, weavers, were afterwards charged with a similar offence, com- [committed] mitted [fitted] on the 5th instant. Kaye, who is a rather pug- [pugnacious] nacious [noxious] looking gentleman, was going to prove an alibi, and had obtained a witness to forswear himself for that purpose, but unfortunately for his designs, the evidence he had to oppose was not so easily overcome. A penalty of 5s. each, with expenses, was inflicted on the defendants, AssauLt.-After [Assault.-After] the disposal of the minor offence of enness, [ens] Kaye was again placed in the dock, charged by Mr. Sutcliffe, innkeeper, with going into his house, creating a disturbance, and then, as a grand finale to his proceedings, spitting in the complainant's face. The offence was alleged to have been committed on the 5th. It appeared that Kaye, who was represented by Mr, Sutcliffe as one of the worst scapegraces in Kirk- [Kirkburton] bufton, [Burton] had gone into complainant's house, and after breaking a pint pot, which he refused to pay for, com- [commenced] menced [mended] to abuse him (Mr. Sutcliffe) in the most violent manner, and then spat at him in the face. The offence was clearly proved, and the magistrates inflicted the pe- [penalty] nalty [nasty] of 40s. and costs, or one mcnth's [month's] imprisonment. Kaye-One month Mr. Battye.-Yes do you want two months Kaye.-Nay, not this time; I would rather not go at all. A few minutes after being removed Kaye returned to enquire how long the bench would allow him in order that he might pay the fines, and was rather crest fallen on being refused any grace what- [whatever] ever. Drivine [Divine] witHout [without] Retns.-Joseph [Rents.-Joseph] Morehouse, carrier of Thurlstone, was summoned by Constable Glover, for that he did, on the 8th of August, ride in a waggon without reins, on the high road between Huddersfield and Shepley-lane Head. Fined 1s. and expenses.- [expenses] Alfred Goldthorpe was also charged by the same officer with riding a waggon through the streets of Kirkburton without having any reins. The offence was denied. Fined 2s. 6d. and expenses. BARNSLEY. MAJORITY OF W. B. BEAUMONT, ESQ, OF BRETTON HALL. . The rejoicings and festivities at Bretton Hall, on Tues day last, to celebrate the majority of Wentworth Blackett Beaumont, of Bretton Hall, in this county, and of Bywell Hall, Northumberland, were on a very extensive scale. The event was commemorated last month by a sumptuous dinner given to the clergy of the vicinity, the farm tenantry, and the cottagers but on Tuesday last the industrious wives and blooming daughters of the tenants of Mr. Beaumont, were invited to participate in the rejoicings with which it was determined to celebrate the attainment of his majority by that respected gentleman. Mr. Beau- [Beaumont] mont [most] was not present on the first occasion, being engaged in a similar festivity at Bywell Hall; but, with a marked courtesy to the fair sex, he took care to countenance their assemblage on Tuesday last, and heartily entered into the pleasures of the evening. It was arranged by those who ad the superintendence of the affair that the company should be supplied with tea under a large and commodious marquee placed on the lawn in front of the hall, and that afterwards they should enjoy the pleasures of. the dance under the same covering. The approaches to the ancient seat of the Wentworth and Beaumont families were thronged by the parties who had been invited, and the surrounding villages presented a scene of unusual gaiety and joyousness. The principal houses were adorned with flags and banners bearing various suitable in- [inscriptions] scriptions, [descriptions] and on entering the park the visitor was agree- [agreeably] ably surprised to see the admirable arrangements which had been made. The first entrance to the splendid man- [mansion] sion was beneath a triumphal arch, of evergreens, and sur- [Sir- surmounted] mounted with a crown, composed of flowers. Beyond this the marquee was presented to the view, the sides and en- [entrance] trance tastefully decorated with flowers and ever-greens, and beyond, in the distance, could be seen, surrounded by the gnarled oak and the wide-spreading beech, the exten- [extent- extensive] sive [side] lake which forms one of the chief ornaments of the grounds which encircle this once noble residence. The Barnsley band of musicians attended on the occasion and contributed, by the skilful execution of favourite and ad- [admired] mired airs, greatly to the delightful pleasures of the occa- [occur- occasion] sion. The interior of the marquee was decorated with flowers and laurel. On one side of the tent, were visible in large characters, the words and figures 11th April, 1850; [W] and at the extreme end at the back of the orchestra was a tasteful and appropriate device, in the centre of which were the letters W. B. B. elegantly formed of flowers, on either side being a wreath and star similarly composed. After partaking of tea the company promenaded the grounds, and the tables and forms were removed from the marquee, to make room for the dancing. As soon as this was accomplished the guests again assembled under- [underneath] neath the tent, and very shortly afterwards Mr. Beaumont made his appearance, warmly and enthu- [tenth- enthusiastically] siastically [sarcastically] greeted by those who recognised him. Mrs. Edward Beaumont accompanied him, leaning on the young gentleman's arm, and immediately following were his Edward Blackett Beaumont, Esq., of Upper-wood Hall, and that gentleman's beautiful and accomplished daughters. Immediately around the platform were the Rev. T. Thexton, [Sexton] of Darton Rev. Edwards, curate of Silkstone Rev. W. Cross, of Wakefield Mr- [Joseph] Joseph Nor- [Norton] ton, of Clayton West, and wife and daughter Mrs. Bay l- don, of Hollinghurst [Linguist] Messrs. J. and W. Bayldon, of Hol- [Ho- Linguist] linghurst [longest] Mr. Taylor, of Gray's Inn, London, and wife ; Mr. Sangster and wife, High Hoyland Mr. Norton, jun. ; Mrs. Ashton, of Shaw, Oldham Miss Roberts, of Carlton ; Mr. Watson Scratchard, solicitor, Morley Mr. Stewart, solicitor, of Wakefield Mr. Rogers, solicitor, of Sheffield, &e. . At other places upon the estate several hundreds took tea and refreshments, and finished the pleasures of the day by mixing in the delightful dance. There were at Bretton about 200; Hoyland 140; Cumberworth 100; Emley 80 ; Kexbro [Brooke] 240; Darton 310; Flockton 350; Netherton 90; Cawthorn 90 making a total of 1,600 who celebrated the auspicious event. As Mr. Beaumont had walked round the mer [Mr] juee, [June] silence was obtained and his health was then proposed to the company by the Rev. T. Thexton, [Sexton] and responded to by the whole company in a series of hearty cheers. Mr. BEAUMONT, in responding to the toast, after alluding to more personal and immediate matters, proceeded to observe -I know you must be aware of certain reports which have been spread-reports which were not un- [unfounded] founded-that [that] a certain noble lord, high in position in this county, was about to Reconss. [Congress] pomsanaar [Pomona] of these estates. For your sakes I could have wished that such might have been the case-for your sakes, I say, I could have wished it, because that nobleman isa gentleman eminent for his good qualities,-a gentleman who would have made a far better landlord than myself (no, no). But, for myself, I must say I am glad it has not taken place. Iam [I am] glad that circumstances are now altered, and that I am able to announce to you my intention to keep the Yorkshire estates (cheers). I am sure, by the cheering with which you have received that intimation, that I have come toa [to] right and proper determination when I announce that there is as little pros of these estates being sold as of any other estates within the West Riding of the County of York (Cheers). Afterglancingat some minerpoints, [miner points] Mr. Beaumont again in continuation said -I will endeavour to promote among you what I am sorry to see so much neglected and so much wanted-and that is, the education of all the poorer classes-(hear, hear)-the education of all my cot- [cottagers] tagers [takers] in this county. (Hear, hear.) I do feel this to be a most important subject and at the meeting I recently had with my- [my tenantry] tenantry in Northumberland, I went into the question more fully than I can now venture to take up your time in doing. I was there an advocate of the importance of schools, but I also told them that, unless they gave their assistance, these schools may be built, but they will not be filled. (Hear, hear.) I now repeat the same observation to you and I call upon you all-I call upon my tenantry ially, [ally] to give this subject your undivided attention ; and while you hold differences of opinion on the political state of this country-whilst some are for free trade and some for protection, I call upon you, nevertheless, to look to this as the main point-I call upon you to consider- [consider whatever] whatever the views your legislators may take, whatever the acts the parliament may pass-to consider that the pro- [prosperity] sperity [spirit] and the benefit of the people do not depend on par- [parliament] liament [Parliament] but on yourselves, and on your own exertions in looking to the welfare and prosperity of those around you. if yon will have patience with me, as I am sure you will, I ill endeavour in this and in every other respect to forward your views I will endeavour to promote this important consideration as much as I possibly can. At the conclusion of Mr. Beaumont's address the band struck up an enlivening strain, and afterwards a country dance was called for, Mr. Beaumont leading off with Miss Margaret Thexton, [Sexton] G. B. Beaumont, Esq., and Mrs. Taylor, T. Rogers, Esq., and Miss Beaumont, Mr. Hunt ond [and] Mrs Beaumont, joining the set. The quadrille, polka, waltz, schottische, [Scott's] and lancers followed in rapid succes- [success- succession] sion,'the [the] whole of the company entering into the pleasures of the evening with an evident determination to cast aside all the anxieties of life and devote this night to social enjoyment. There were various glees sung throughout the evening, and many favourite tunes played by the band. The re ents, [ants] it is needless to adi, [aid] were abundant and of the best description. The company did not separate till the dawn of morning warned them of the approach of day, and before they left, the festivities were concluded by the band playing the national anthem and the guests giving ted and enthusiastic cheers. Abridged from the akefield [Wakefield] Journal. ---- THE WHEAT Harvest.- [Harvest] Early in the week several farmers in the neighbourhood of Wombell, [Wombwell] we are in- formed, commenced their wheat harvest. 'appointed to make an arrangement between the masters Boy ScaLpep.-A [Scalp.-A] youth named Joseph Hardcastle, was severely scalded on Thursday the 8th instant, while in the act of filling a large pan, containing boiling water, with pieces of linen cloth, at Beevor Bleach- [Bleach works] works. Theunfortunate [The unfortunate] youth had got the pan nearly filled, and was standing over it to press them down, when his feet accidentally slipped, and he fell into the boiling liquid. He was so severely scalded that he will not be able to resume his employment for some time. Sicns [Sins] oF THE TrMEs.-In [Terms.-In] the little hamlet of Hoyle-mill, owing to the dearness of provisions a few years ago, only about five of the inhabitants could afford to feeda [feed] pig; but, since the abolition of the Corn Laws, and provisions having become so much cheaper, there has been upwards ofsixty [of sixty] pig cotes brought into requisition, which indicates favourably as to the present circumstances of the inhabitants. Vestry Mretinc.-Thursday [Britannic.-Thursday] last being the day ap- [appointed] pointed for the passing of the overseers' accounts, a meeting of the rate-payers was held in the vestry of St. Mary's Church. A small bill which had been ex- [extensively] tensively [extensively] circulated by the local reform committee created considerable excitement. Among the items it contained, were the following -William Medlam, [Medal] for collecting 152 3s. 11d.; [d] William Medlam, [Medal] for valuing, 100; W] Thomas Liddall [Liddell] for acting as overseers' clerk, 50; interest and bank commission, 107 5s.; Mr. Whitworth, for valuing, 240 3s. 9d., besides several minor items. Mr. Joseph Woodruff was called to the chair. Few persons being present in the forenoon, an adjournment until six o'clock in the evening took place. On Mr. Woodruff resuming his position in the evening, an animated discussion ensued which was fre- [re- frequently] quently [frequently] interrupted by the meeting. The chairman was called upon to read the whole of the accounts over in a slow and distinct manner, after which some objec- [object- objections] tions [tins] were raised against them as being of an exorbitant character. Mr. Mence [Fence] moved that the whole of the accounts should be passed, which upon being put to the meeting, was negatived by a great majority. A poll was then demanded, at the conclusion of which it was found that a majority of those present were in favour of the accounts being passed. LeEastne [Least] Totts.-On [Tots.-On] Thursday week, the tolls on the Barnsley and Grange Moor turnpike-road and the tolls at the Scawsby [Scab] Bar on the Doncaster and Saltersbrook [Salisbury] turnpike-road, were let, at the Royal Hotel, to Messrs. Bower, and Co., the large toll contractors, of Hepworth House, Hunslet, for three years, at a considerable re- [reduction] duction, [Auction] caused by the opening of the Lancashire and Yorkshire railway, which runs parallel with the road to Bretton, and seriously affects the tolls. THE WEAVERS StTRIKE.-The [Strike.-The] arbitrators, who were and workmen, announced to a meeting on Mayday Green, on Friday last, that they had made a satisfactory arrangement, and that the masters had agreed to pay for extra length. HALIFAX. THE Stone Dam Acarn. [Again. - Notwithstanding the many attempts to get this dangerous place protected, it still remains as bad as ever, and another victim has been added to the list, a little girl, named'Emma Bradley, aged four years, on whose body an inquest was held at the Bacchus Tavern, King-street. The jury annexed to their verdict a strong request that the Town Council and the owners of the property would take immediate steps to fence and secure it. Furious Drivine.-We [Divine.-We] had occasion to notice a few weeks ago a serious accident which occurred in Godley- [Godley] lane, to two officers stationed at the barracks, or rather to one, and one at Bradford. The same Halifax one, along with the captain, were returning from the moors, driving a horse and gig, obtained from Mr. Lynch, post- [postmaster] master, whilst coming down Pellow-lane, [Fellow-lane] at Green-hill, where the road is rather narrow, there stood a waggon, against which they came in contact. One gig-wheel was completely stript [strip] off, the two thrown out, the lieutenant (who was driving) escaped, but his captain was much bruised. DisGRACEFUL [Disgraceful] Nuisance.-The clerk to the board of guardians (Charles Barstow, Esq.) has very properly brought before the authorities the filthy and shocking state of Emmett's-court, Jail Lane, there being certain privies on the property of Mr. Price, and two belonging to Mr. Foster, brass founder, the state of which, and the noxious effluvia emanating, have caused death to the children of those residing near. Mr. Hill, currier, [carrier] has buried three, whose deaths have been hastened by this nuisance a neighbour of his had lost two; those on the property of Mr. Price were not so bad as Mr. Foster's; his melting-pan being close to the privy wall heated the seats to that degree that no one could bear to sit upon them, and the matter beneath was caused to boil Forty-eight hours were given, in which time the nui- [ni- nuisances] sances [stances] were to be removed. ir THE CHEAP SySTEM.-An [System.-An] eminent tea-dealer of Bath, who for many years has been celebrated for the excellence of his goods, was some time since astonished to find his customers express their disapprobation of the quality of his teas; months rolled on with a declining custom before he discovered that the fine flavour of his beverage, which cheers but not inebriates, had been destroyed by the offensive odour which proceeded from some tea papers which had been printed for him at Birmingham, at an ex- [extraordinary] traordinary [ordinary] low price; the ink with which they were exe-. cuted [cured] being made of the commonest oil, the effect on the tea was of a most nauseous nature.-Bath Pap r. DEFALCATION AT PRESTON.-Much surprise has been created in the town within the last week or so, by the dis- [discovery] covery [cover] that the sum of about 2,000, the accumulation of the collections of years, of donations and bequests, placed some years ago in the hands of a professional gentleman occupying a respectable position in society, for the purpose of investment, as an endowment fund for a religious com- [community] munity [unity] established some time since in Preston, had not been so invested. Until lately, the interest (about 90) was regularly paid; but it is now understood that there are no assets to meet any future claims for either interest or principal.- [principal] Preston Chronicle. The rumour relative to the intended elevation of the Right Hon. J. Cam Hobhouse to the peerage, has set the politicians of Harwich on the gui [gi] vive. [vice] Mr. G. F. Young has recently taken a house in Essex, chiefly, it is said, with an eye to Harwich. At a meeting held some months since, at Chelmsford, Mr. Young very feelingly deplored the decaying trade of Harwich, enlarged upon its great capa- [cap- capabilities] bilities, [abilities] and promised to use his best exertions in restoring the town to its former importance.- [importance] Weekly Chronicle. THE PEEL MONUMENT aT MANCHESTER.-At the weekly meeting of the Peel Monument Committee, held on Friday morning, in the Town-hall, the Mayor in the chair, it was announced that the total amount of subscriptions has reached 4,878. The questions of site, form, and material were then taken into consideration, and after some discus- [discussion] sion, it was resolved that the monument should consist of a colossal erect figure, in bronze, of the deceased states- [statesman] man, to be erected in the open air, within the area before the Royal Infirmary. A sub-committee was appointed to carry out the resolutions of the general committee. THE Costs IN THE GORHAM CasE.-The [Case.-The] costs of both parties in this case would have been sufficient to build and endow twenty churches of the size of Brampford Speke. Sir Fitzroy Kelly, M.P. alone has had three seperate [separate] re- [retainers] tainers [trainers] of 900 guineas each, besides consultation fees, which will bring up his share to nearly 2,000. It is stated, in legal circles, that the whole costs are upwards of 80,000. It is however, pretty clear that the Bishop of Exeter and the Rev. Mr. Gorham are not the actual parties who are to bear the brunt of the battle. The money it may be pre- [presumed] sumed, [sued] has been provided by the high and low church parties -Daily News.

The plot was a con- [considerable] siderable [considerable] time maturing, and as many as four or five are considered as principals, and many implicated 30 were put into custody immediately after the fire, and it is understood that the prison authorities are in possession of all the parti- [part- particulars] culars.- [circulars.- circulars] Morning Herald. DREADFUL EXPLOSION OF GaS [Gas] aT BIRKENHEAD.-We regret to state that a serious accident took place this morning at the Conway Arms Hotel, Conway-street, Bir- [Sir- Birkenhead] kenhead. [ken head] It appears that about seven o'clock Mr. Higgins, who resides with Mrs. Hilton, the proprietor of the hotel, went into a sitting-room up-stairs for the purpose of putting some water into the slide of the chandelier, the gas beingon [being] at the time, and whilst so doing a boy who is employed on the premises, went into the room and struck a light witha [with] match, when a fearful explosion immediately took place, by which Mr. Higgins was severely burned about his face, hands, and other parts of his body. The damage done to the furniture in the room was very great, the cushions being burned off the chairs, the paintings scorched, and the ornaments generally rendered valueless. The window was blown completely out. Mr. Higgins lies in a very precarious state the boy was very little injured.-Liverpool Courier of Wednesday.

At that critical period she was attacked with dropsy, attended by a vi troublesome cough. The medical aid of several very em - nent [sent] practitioners was procured, but their efforts failed to remove, or even abate, the rigour of the disease.

Four Persons KILLED By Poisonous MusHRooMS.-On [Mushrooms.-On] Monday last an inquest was held at the Black Horse, in Wisbech Fen, about four miles from Thornley, upon the bodies of Patrick Hunt, an Irishman, eighteen years of age, and Winifred Garvay, [Gray] twenty eight years old, wife of Garvay, [Gray] also an Irishman, whose death had been caused by their having eaten a portion of poisonous mushrooms. Patrick Hunt, on Friday the 2nd instant, whilst walking along the Thornley road-side saw and gathered a small quantity of mushrooms. In the afternoon he had them cooked, and after eating some himself gave a portion of them to Mrs. Garvay [Gray] and her child. No serious effects ensued that day, but about daylight on Saturday morning, Hunt was attacked by violent sickness and purging, accom- [com- accompanied] panied [pained] by great pain in the stomach and bowels soon after that Mrs. Garvay [Gray] was seized with the same symptoms, and then the child also. Hunt became suddenly worse, and died in the evening. Medical aid was called in to Mrs. Garvay [Gray] and her child, but after lingering till Sunday and Monday morning respectively they also died. Another Irish child named Thomas Howd, [How] also died from eating mushrooms gathered in the same locality. On a post mortem examination the stomach of Mrs. Garvay [Gray] was found to be extensively inflamed. TO CORRESPONDENTS. A JOURNEYMAN MILLER, will see, on reflection, that the matter respecting which he complains would be more likely to be remedied if the hands in the two mills named made a respectful and proper application to the mana- [man- managers] gers [hers] of those establishments, rather than by laying a complaint before the public, who have no power to inter- [interfere] fere [free] in the matter. We have reason to hope that if a real grievance exists, a friendly conference between the managers and men would be more productive of good to all than a newspaper controversy, which, in all proba- [probate- probability] bility, [debility] would alienate rather than cement the two interests. .
