The usual fine and ex- [expenses] penses [senses] were inflicted. A man named Townend, a carter, at King's Mill, was also charged with a like offence, by Reid, the constable of Lockwood.-The defendant denied the charge, but as he had no evidence to rebut the direct testimony of the officer, a fine of Is. and expenses was inflieted [inflicted] A DaNGERovs [Dangerous] PractTicE.-CauTion [Practice.-Caution] To CanTERS.-On [Canter.-On] -Tuesday last, before J.

It appeared that on the 6th inst., Mr. Heaton met the defendant's waggon coming down the Halifax Road ata [at] sharp trot from a beer-house kept by a person named Langdon, the defendant being seated on the shafts, and it was with some difficulty that he (Mr. Heaton) could get by with his gig.

Constable Sykes said that he fuund [found] the prisoner very drunk on the evenin [evening] in question, and on using a li tle [li te] mild remonstrance wit him the prisoner offered to give the officer satisfaction in true Betidigo [Bendigo] fashion. This was declined, upon whieh [which] the prisoner, assuming that he wore the belt of thampion- [champion- championship] ship, used most abusive and insulting language, 'and the result was his conveyance to the lock-up. A fine of 1s. and expenses was inflicted, the Bench not having learned, until after the sentence had been passed, the kind of customer they had just had before them, or no doubt a more appro- [approve- approve] priate [private] punishment would havé [have] been inflicted.

We publish in another portion of this day's Chronicle, an important communication addressed to the Clerk of the Huddersfield Board, emanating from the Poor Law Commission at Somerset House, Tho letter is a lengthy one, but its contents will bear perusal, inasmuch as it is full of suggestions which plainly indicate what are the views of the Poor Law Board, founded on the reports of their inspectors, in reference to the erection of one central poor house for the whole of this union. In accordance with our promise, made in the outset, we shall next week lay before our readers certain facts bearing upon this question, in the hope that by so doing we may be instrumental in creating a due interest in this matter among the rate-payers of all classes in the Union, whose cause we have already pledged ourselves to advocate, and, when necessary, to defend. i ATTEMPT TO RESUSCITATE THE CORN LAWS. On Tuesday evening the attempt to re-impose a duty upon corn imported from foreign countries, for which such extensive and loud-sounded pre- [preparations] parations [preparation] were made during the prorogation, and to which the tenant-farmers who still adhere to protection have been looking upwards with such interest, was made in the House of Commons by Mr. GRANTLEY Berxeuty, [Beauty] county member for West Gloucestershire, The motion was for a committee of the whole house to take into consideration the acts relating to the importation of foreign corn but the object avowedly was to revise the legisla- [legislate- legislation] tion [ion] of 1846, and re-impose duties on the importa- [imports- importation] tion [ion] of foreign corn. Mr. GranTLey [Granted] BERKELEY is a very curious per- [personage] sonage, [song] and is a member of a no less curious family, the Earl of FrrzHarpincE [Response] being one of his brothers ; and the recollection of the unseemly contests and quarrels of that happy family cannot yet have fatled [failed] from the public mind. Mr. BeErRKELEY [Berkeley] has hitherto ranked as a liberal; has even been looked upon as a free-trader and there- [therefore] fore his motion, though not at all palatable to the protectionist leaders, because it hurried ona [on] contest and a trial of strength which they have been anxi- [anti- anxious] ous [us] to avoid, was made the worst of in the way of its being a proof of re-action -and that the first motion for the recuscitation [recitation] of the Corn Laws came from the ministerial side of the house. Alack and well-a-day, when Mr. Grantiey [Granite] BERKELEY came himself to explain, it turned out that he never was a free-trader that when the measure of 1846 was passing through the house, he was newtral-gave [natural-gave] no sign did not vote either on one side or the other. So that the famous proof of re-action on the question of the Corn Laws which the protectionists so vauntingly [tauntingly] produced; turned out to be no proof at all and that the act of re-action itself so confi- [confer- confidently] dently [gently] appealed to, was only the indiscreet action of a man who had not before acted. But this debate, though it has not resulted in the re-enactment of the Corn Laws, has nevertheless had its uses and its good effects. Of course there was the usual amount of small-talk- [talk the] the usual whine for protection, because poor sunken-spirited Englishmen have not the ability or power to protect themselves; are not able to make their way in the world unassisted and, of course also, these were the usual fallacies let off- [off the] the often demolished statistical arguments adduced, and lamentations loud and long at the present low prices of food; and all the dreadful consequences from thisawful [this awful] course were predicted. Shocking that the people of England should be allowed to purchase their food at the world's price; and that every mouthful they eat is not seasoned, and its worth énhanced, [enhanced] by a landlord's tax To whatever aré [are] we tending when food can be purchased and con- [consumed] sumed [sued] without the landlord class having their share of every mouthful the artizan [artisans] eats We say, as a matter of course, all these things were dwelt upon in all the various degrees of seriousness and lugubriotsness [luxuriousness] for they form the regular stock upon which the farnier's [farrier's] friends trade, whenever the sorrows and sufferings of those they so patronisingly befriend are brought to market. But the debate had its other uses it brought the Chancellor of the Exchequer out to say that with Government there was no reaction that in the Cabinet there has been no misgiving that there has been no intention there entertained of going back to the 1841 proposition of an &s, fixed duty; and that functionary moreover adduced facts to show that the country generally is in a far more healthy state far more prosperous, has a greater command over the necessaries of life, than was the case before the Corn Laws were repealed and to prove moreover that even in those districts where the ery [very] of agricultural dis- [distress] tress is the loudest raiséd, [raised] the returns of pauper- [pauperism] ism and of crime do not bear out the representa- [present- representation] rn so good. The great fact that the government was giving way, which has inspired 30 many meetings, and been the stirring of much vapid declamation at county meetings, turns out net to be a fact at all, not even a little one. Converts to protectionism, and reactionary ministers, must be looked for elsewhere than among the members of Lord Jonn government, if his col- [colleague] league, Sir C. Woop, [Wool] is any authority in the matter. But not only did Mr. G. BERKELEY draw a de- [declaration] claration [declaration] of faith from the Government, but that eel-like slippery pantaloon of a politician, Mr. had also to make sign. To make out what the great protectionist leader was after- [after what] what was his meaning-has been the great puzzle of the session. And though those who heard him on Tuesday night, and those who read after him, will still he puzzled to eke out the full meaning, still there has some sort of sign been made; and that sign is, that DisraELi [Disraeli] is 20 protectionist as the protectionists alone understand protection. Let those who think he is take their change out of the following -- He, and those who occupied that side of the House, maintained as the real principle of protection, as a general rule extending to every producer in this country, that free imports should not be received from any foreign country which by hostile tariffs refused the offer of an equally fair interchange. (Hear, hear.) That he called the principle of protection to native industry-one which could be sup- [supported] ported not only as a matter of high policy but he defended as of scientific truth (hear, hear) and the motion, as pre- [preliminary] liminary [preliminary] to the proposition of a fixed duty on the admis- [Adams- admission] sion of foreign corn, so far as that principle was concerned, was justified both in policy and in economical science. There were exceptional circumstances which solicited atten- [attend- attention] tion. [ion] If the principles of their commercial code were that every foreign country should send its imports free here which received the productions of this country free, were they prepared to let any country send corn here free which should receive British manufacture free He was not pre- [prepared] pared to do that unless he found the question connected with agricultural produce met by honourable mtlemen [element] opposite in a fairer spirit. There were bur- [Burgess] Gens culinr [culinary] to the soil from which other produces were free. Te had been calculated by men of great eminence and whose works were continually cited, that a fixed duty of 6s. to 8s. should be imposed on foreign grain as countervailing the burdens to which the agriculturist was liable. (Hear, hear.) He was not one of those who wished the agricul- [Agricola- agriculturist] turist [trust] so compensated. He would rather see the question of the peculiar burdens settled as he had indicated it ought to be, by a fair adjustment of taxation so that they should no longer go on as they had in this country, one-third pay- [paying] ing for two thirds who went scot [Scott] free. But if the Legis- [Legs- Legislature] lature [nature] presisted [resisted] in the system which made the tiller of the soil maintain the roads, support the poor, build magnificent establishments for the reception of lunatics-out of his hard-earned gains, the agriculturists had a right to say that, having been placed in competition with the whole world, they could not longer postpone the question whether compensation should be given for the burdens, either by their taking a share or by their giving a countervailing duty. (Hear,hear.). A tax for the benefit of a class was not protection it was plunder, (Hear, hear.) What he asked the House was to rest the native industry of this country, the rights and interests of labour; first, by allowing no free imports from countries which met them with countervailing duties, and secondly, in re- [regard] gard [guard] to agricultural produce, he maintained that they were bound to give an additional countervail- [countervailing] ing duty or to take a share of the burdens expended, as much for the advantage of other classes as for that of the agricultural. A commercial system founded on such principles would very much tend to increase the pros- [prosperity] perity [purity] of this country, to terminate the misery which was allowed on all sides partially, at least, to prevail, to change for the better that perilous position of the great middle class which more than one member had admitted to exist. Such a protective policy would, he believed, ere long be recognized [recognised] by parliament. (Loud cheers.) This declaration of faith on the part of the leader of her Majesty's opposition, received the especial attention, as was to be expected, of Mr. CospEn, [Cos pen] who followed Mr. in the course of the debate and stripped the rhetorical word- [wordmonger] monger of his borrowed plumes in manner following - The honourable gentleman, it appeared, was a free- [free trader] trader, if we had reciprocity with foreign countries. Now, the honourable gentleman's definition of free-trade and pictéation [petition] differed very much from that given by the right onourable [honourable] member for Stamford (Mr. Herries), [Sherries] and would not be found to harmonise with that given by Lord Stanley the other day (cheers); and the silence which prevailed upon the benches behind the hon. gentleman when he was speaking just now showed that hon. members opposite had penetrate the mystery of the honourable gentleman's de- [declaration] claration, [declaration] and that they saw the danger of the position which their leader was taking up (cheers) because the hon. gentleman, as the advocate of reciprocity, was advocating competition between forei [fire] and domestic labbur [labour] as much as he (Mr. Cobden). (Hear, hear). The hon. gentleman said, let the agriculturists have com- [compensation] pensation [sensation] ior [or] the special burdens on land. But what said the tenant-farmers at the C-own and Anchor the other day. They resolved that no remission of taxes could be a substi- [subsist- substitute] tute [tue] for protection, and that the Legislature must main- [maintain] tain [train] a protective duty upon foreign grain, or the far- [farmer] mer [Mr] could not carry on a competition with the foreizner.- [foreign.- foreign] hear, hear)... The farmers were not so blind to the incidence of taxation as not to know that it was one thing to tax the raw material, which was land, and another thing, to tax the produce of that capital which belonged to the farmer. (Hear, hear.). Now, the hon. member for Bucks proposed to remit the taxation upon land, and then he would admit foreign corn. But the farmer was for protection, and they were much mistaken if they thought he would allow that to be taken away from him as compensation because they chose to remit the taxation upon land. And the farmer would see, also, the clumsy process by which these burdens upon land were proposed to be re- [remitted] mitted, [fitted] because the hon. gentleman took off the tax from real property of ail kinds, houses, mills, railways, and the rest. He (Mr. Cobden) did not see how that would be a compensation to the farmer. - And then Mr. Cospen [Cos pen] left the representative of Buckinghamshire, first challenging the protec- [protect- protectionists] tionists [pianists] to go to a dissolution, and also pointing out the means by which they may do so. On this subject he said - He was not afraid of a dissolution. (Question.) That was the question, for he understood that gentlemen oppo- [op- opposite] site were going to lay up the question of the corn-laws until the dissolution of parliamnnt. [Parliament] If they were sincere in wishing for a dissolution they should support the motion for triennial parliaments. Oh, oh. It the wishes of gentlemen opposite were realised, they would bring about the most complete democratic revolution that the world had ever seen. (Cries of Divide, divide ) The division soon occurred, and proclaimed the following result - For a ré-imposition of the Corn Laws, 184 For Free Trade - -.- - 298 - Majority against retrogression, 114 So the battle has ended-and so the protectionists have not succeeded in again taxing the people's food-although a renegade. whig [Whig] did move the motion. which brought about the result just re- [recorded] corded, ne LOCAL Mrsske.
