Commissioner Moore then rose and id the position in which said he regretted he was placed that evening, but in- [inasmuch] asmuch [as much] as he could not control circumstances, the same cause which induced him to adjourn the question at the former mecting [meeting] was still in existence, in consequence ef the absence of their respected chairman. Consequently, he felt compelled to take the same course as on a former occa- [occur- occasion] sion, axl [al] ask an adjournment of this question to such time as would meet the convenience of the Commissioners them- [themselves] selves. No harm, he observed, could arise from the ad- [adjournment] journment, [Government] as the matter was being among the public, and from what had occurred since the last meeting, it seemed desirable that further discussion should take place, so that the matter might be well considered, not only by that Board, but by the public at large, and from the series of articles which had appeared in the Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field Chronicle-and the views contained in which he recog- [recon- recognised] nised-it [Aniseed-it -it] would appear that the matter was fairly before the public. He (the Speaker) assured the Board that this adjournment Was not in co uence [fence] of the fears he enter- [entertained] tained [gained] of we charged with ism, or of Louis Blanc- [Balances] ism he should not be deterred from his purpcse [purpose] by any such means when the question involved was one of vital interest to the rate-payers, and he could only regret that any indi- [India- individuals] viduals [individuals] should be found actuated by feelings of this kind, who were, as they would ultimately find, throwing out in- [insinuations] sinuations [Situations] which were perfectly groundless. He, for one, repudiated confiscation as much as any man. (hear hear). He only wished that public matters, which belonged to the public, should be in the hands of the public. (Hear, hear). But the mode to accomplish that object was a mat- [matter] ter [te] for the consideration of that Board, though at the same time he trusted that he should be one of the last men to advocate anything which was unfair or dishonourable.- [dishonourable] (Hear, hear). Commissioner RILEY said he had come to the Board on purpese [purpose] to hear the question discussed, To put it off was treating them as children. He looked upon the motion as a complete robbery (cries of order, chair from several members of the Board) and should, therefore, move that it be considered that day six months. Commissioner BooTH [Booth] seconded the motion. Commissioner Moore again repeated that his sole object in postponing the motion was the continued absence of the Chairman, and intimated that in case the motion was pressed toa [to] division and carried he would, nevertheless, bring the subject before the Board before he left office. Commissioner CROSLAND submitted that inasmuch as Mr. Moore was the party giving the notice, it was perfectly competent for him to withdraw it for the present, upon which Commissioner Moore intimated that he should most certainly withdraw it for the reasons stated, and then give notice of the question again in the regular way when their Chairman's presence ceuld [could] be secured. Commissioner RiLEr-Then [Ruler-Then] the farce is to go onward cries of and chair. ) Commissioner MoorE [Moor] indignantly repudiated the levity of the last speaker, and maintained that the subject too nearly affected the pockets of the ratepayers to be treated as a farce. Cemmissioner [Commissioner] CROSLAND believed that it was really out of deference to their Chairman that Mr. Moore declined to bring the question forward at the last meeting, and he also believed that the same feeling influenced that gentleman now. He (the speaker) was of opinion that it was very desirable to secure the presence of their permanent Chair- [Chairman] man when this question was discussed, in order to curb those hasty spirits who, he felt certain, would feel so anxious to s on this question- hear, hear.)- [hear] invol- [involve- involving] ving, [vine] as it did, the consideration of the propriety of pur- [our- purchase] chase of the present gas-works or the erection of gas-works of their own. These things considered he did rot hesitate to say that all parties would be bettered by the presence of their Chairman, who would maintain that decorum and order so very desirable in the conduct of an important dis- [discussion] cussion [caution] of that description. He denied that there was any desire to blink the question, or trifle with the public, but they were particularly anxious to secure the presence of a gentleman as chairman who could sway those turbulent spirits he saw around him. For this reason alone he thought the proposed adjournment a reasonable proposition, and the more so, asin [sin] the meantime much light might be thrown on the question, which would be so much more desirable. - Commissioner Moore again intimated that he would bring on the question at the next meeting of the Beard, whether Mr. Brook was present or not. Commissioner RILEY remarked that they could go on without Mr. Brook, and it was possible ke would not be there at the next meeting, and if he was there he would net want to rob the public. (Cries of order. ) Commissioner CRosLAND [Crosland Nor do we want to rob the public, Mr. Chairman on the contrary, we are anxious to defend their true interests. (Hear.) The speaker con- [concluded] cluded [eluded] by moving an amendment to the effect, that the consideration of the gas question be adjourned, out of courtesy to Mr. Brook, until that day fortnight. Commissioner J. Brook seconded the motion, upon which Commissioner ENGLAND suggested that there could be no objection tv the adjournment of the question for six months, . Commissioner CROSLAND said many of the gentlemen then at the Board would, so far as being Commissioners was concerned, be zon [on] est in six months (hear)-at that time, as gentlemen were aware, Mr. Moore might not be a Commissioner, and besides these considerations, if they went into the discussion then, it would be in the absence of a gentleman, who at that Board, and who in everything relating to town's affairs, was a great authority, not only in the estimation of that Board, but in the opinion of the ratepayers generally. (Hear.) . Commissioncr [Commissioner] J. FIRTH saw no necessity for the warm feeling which had been displayed. The gas qnestion [question] was, he admitted, an open one, which the Commissioners ought well to consider; but as he saw no necessity for adjourn- [adjournment] ment, [men] and not being pledged to any line of procedure, he moved that the consideration of the question be gone into forthwith. . Commissioner RILEY then withdrew his motion for a six months' adjournment of oe question, and seconded the sroposition [opposition] of the last speaker. - t . Comntationor [Corporation] Moone [Moon] in expressed his surprise at the course pursued by. gentlemen who were adverse to any proposition of the kind he was anxious to discuss. A Commissioner You waat [wait] to birk [birch] the question. No; he did not want to birk [birch] the question, and he promised the Board, notwithstanding the course which was attempted to be pursued, that the inotion [notion] should not be swamped by that course. He called on the gas proprietors to pause also before they came in direct collisiou [collision] with the rate- [ratepayers] payers on this matter, for alreedy [already] a memorial was in course of signature amongst them, in taveur [Tavern] of this very move- [movement] ment. [men] The Board was not sent there to serve any indivi- [divine- individual] dual interests, but to sustain the public good; and ke was Sorry to see gentlemen evince a disposition, as by the nature of their resolution they showed ie clearly, to birk [birch] this question. (Cries of order, chair, Here a sharp encounter took place between the speaker and the chair ay the iter [iver] of whom, by his demeanour, seemed to be vour [our] of the com inuing [inning] i i in i Eas [Was] company continuing its init [inst] Commissioner CRosLAND [Crosland] again remarked that every step they took convinced him the more of the necessity of having a chairman who cou d [Co d] calm these turbulent spirits. Cries of chair, aud [and] order.) The speaker subinitted [submitted] that he was perfeetly [perfectly] in order. Commissioner Rizry [Rory] said If T undesstand [understand] the English lang YOU a e not in order. The spoaker [speaker] reiterated his remar' [rear] contending that he was quite in order, and disclaimed anything disrespectful to the then chairman, though he saw the further the discussion bee peed oo ty of having a to preside who On occasion i of expression. particularly, keep down any undue Commissioner Rinry [Urinary I think gentlemen should pay proper courtesy toe the chair, however. Commissioner CrosLann [Crosland] Gentlemen who sit here ught [ought] to know that when an a logy is made that is suf- [su- sufficient] ficient. [efficient] (Hear, hear.) If T said anything wrong I imme- [Mme- immediately] diately [lately] made the necessary apolegy. [apology] (Hear, hear.) After some further discussion, the preposition fur going into the ne of the question forthwith was carried by seven to Commissioner Moone, [Moon] on being appealed to by the Chairman, said that he must, for the Peasons [Persons] previously assigned, decline to open the discussion, and he hoped that cither [either] the mover, seconder, or some of the supporters of the motion would do so, upon which Commissioner FirTu [Firth] said that, although the mover of the motion, he certainly was not prepared to open the discussion.- Commissioner CROsLAND [Crosland] Indeed. -Yes, and twice indeed. He had declined attending another meeting at a distance, in order to be present, and listen to this discussion, though not intending to take any part in it. mmissioner [mission] CROSLAND contended that the mover of such a resohation [resolution] ought to have been prepared to go into the discussion. Commissioner RILEY had never held a share in the Gas Company, but considered that the gentlemen who came forward with their money for that undertaking had done the town good service. 'If the Commissioners could make a profit by gas works then they would be robbing the g proprietors of that which rightfully belonged to them. ie contended that the Commissioners would not know how to the gas works if they had them, as they had plenty to do already to mind their own business, and inasmuch as the public now had good and cheap gas, and as it appeared to him quite as pure as in any other town he occasionally rode through, he did not see the wisdom of the present movement and therefore moved that the Improvement Commissioners have nothing to do with the purchase of the gas works or the manufacture of gas. Commissioner CHARLESWORTH seconded the resolution. Commissioner EasTwoop [Eastwood] remarked that his reason for voting the discussion forthwith was this-the matter had been twice before the Board, and had been adjotrned, [adjourned] on a former occasion, in consequence of the absence of Mr. Brook, and he thought it was then Mr. Moore's duty to have ascertained whether that gentleman could be present that evening. (Commissioner Moore The adjournment was in accordance with my arrangement with our perma- [Perea- permanent] nent [sent] chairman. Then his (the speaker's) objection in that respect was not valid. Still, inasmuch as the time of the Board had been considerably encroached upon, he thought it desirable that those Commissioners who felt disposed should now state their views upon the question. He (the speaker) did not contend that the erection or purchase of gas works was nota [not] legitimate or proper undertaking for the Commissioners to e in hand,-on the contrary, he thought it might be a very proper one under suitable cir- [circumstances] cumstances, [cum stances] (hear, hear,) but at present the Board had very large engagements on hand, and although they had fulfilled their engagements in the manner they ought to do hitherto, he still thought it would be improper and impo- [imp- impolitic] litic [lit] to crowd themselves with engagements, and 'dans [sand] throw themselves into the danger of discharging their present duties more inefficiently than they had hitherto done. For these reasons, he should at present support the resolution of Mr. Riley. Commissioner CROSLAND entered his protest against the form of the resolution, and contended that the Commis- [Comms- Commissioners] sioners [sinners] had just as much power under their Aet [At] of Parlia- [Parliament- Parliament] ment [men] tg purchase or crect [erect] gas works, and supply gas, as they Bary [Barry] power to pave the streets, make a sewer, or diga [dig] drain. (Hear.) The Law said that he had taken upon himself to modify the resolution in that respect. Commissioner RiLEY [Riley] said he hoped the Haw Clerk would let it stand as it was, to which Mr. Enstwogd [Eastwood] objected, and trusted that the Board would be protected committing themselves to any course which was not legal. Commissioner ENGLAND considered the price of gas in the town moderate, and the quality not to be complained of, though he saw no reason why this should not be a very proper question to bring under the consideration of the ard. [ad] ' Commissioner BOOTH er.quired [er.cured] whether the clause was out in committee giving the Commissioners power to erect or purchase gas works The Law said the clause re-enacting the powers the old commissioners possessed had been struck out, but that other clauses had been introduced which gave the power to erect or purchase works for supplying gas to the public streets. . After some further discussion, the following resolution was ultimately carried by a majority of 4 to 3 That inasmuch as the Commissioners have very considerable en- [engagements] gagements [engagements] on hand, they will not at present enter into any engagement for purchasing the present gas works, and ncither [neither] will they at present procced [proceed] to the erection of gas works of theirown. [thrown. . ELECTION OF A COMMISSIONER. In consequence of a vacancy, caused by the disqualifi- [qualified- disqualification] cation of Mr. Abraham Hirst, Commissioner Crosland nominated Mr. Routledge to supply the vacancy.-Com- [Commissioner] missioner J. Brook seconded the nomination.-Commiis- [nomination.-Commons- Commissioners] sioner [sooner] Booth nominated Mr. Lucas Swallow, which was seconded by Commissioner Charlesworth.-On a show of hands, Mr. Lucas Swallow was declared duly elected. ' NOTICE OF MOTION. Commissioner Moore then gave notice of the following motion for consideration at the next monthly meeting of the board To consider the propriety of entering into negociations [association] with the Huddersfield Gas Company, for the purchase of the Huddersfield Gas Works, &e., gas-pipes, gasemeters, [gasometer] and other works and apparatus connécted [connected] therewith; or the erecting other gas works, &e. by the Commissioners, or of taking such other steps with reference thereto as may be thought proper and advisable. -The beard then rose. . A Move IN THE Ricut [Cut] DrreEctiox.-For [Directions.-For] some weeks past, our authcrities [authorities] have been determined to put a, Stop, if possible, to those plague-spots upon any town in.the kingdom--brothels--and for this end, Superintendent Thomas and Inspector Townend have been exerting them- [themselves] selves in a most praiseworthy manner in getting up all the infurmation [information] they can, in order to check this great and grow- [growing] ingcv [inactive] With this view they summoned John Bayldon and Hannah Amnitage, [Armitage] keerers [keepers] of one of those infamous places in Windsor-court, Cas legate, before W. W. Battye an Joseph Starkey, Esqrs., [Esquires] on Saturday last, under the act 34 Edward, charging the n with keeping a house of ill resort, to the great annoyance o her Majesty's liege subjects. The defendants are unmzir'ed, [unfair'ed] but live together in a state of concubinage. Mr. Freeman conducted the prosecution, and in support of the case called a young girl, aged 16, froin [from] Stalybridge, frcm [from] whose evidence it appeared that the female defendant had induced her to live with her on con- [condition] dition [edition] that she cloth d and victualled her, In return for this assistance, she was to turn over the procceds [proceeds] of her prostitution to Armitaze. [Armitage] She theh [the] entered into a number of details to show that this arrangement was for some time carried into effect, none of which either the defendants denied, excepting that they compelled the girl to give up her money.. The magistrates asked the officers if they knew of any employinent [employment] followed by the. male defen- [defend- defendant] dant [dan] but the answer given was, that he had no visible means of obtaining a livelih [lively] The Bench, after a con- [consultation] sultation, [station] held both de'endants [de'defendants] to bail, themselves in 20 cach, [each] and two sureties of 10 cach, [each] and in default to be sent to the house of co-rection [co-section] for one month. ' Drunk anpD [and] DisorvERLy.--Thomas [Disorderly.--Thomas] Nicholson, se house-keeper, Castlegate, was brought up by Thomas and Townend, on Saturdsy [Saturday] last, charged with being drunk and disorderly on the Sur day [Sir day] previous. He was fined 16s. and expenses.-John Mcran [Moran] and John Hardy, were charged by the same officers, with being drunk and disorderly in the same house. Fined ls. each, and costs 5s. each.

It appeared from the officer's state- [statement] ment [men] that the prisoner accosted several parties in the neighbourhood of Quay-strect, [Quay-street] at three o'clock in the morn- [morning] ing,- and, on being interrogated by the officer. she to give any satisfactory account of Lerself.

ELEVEN OF ALL ENGLAND. The All England men arrived in Huddersfield on Monday morning, ftem [stem] Manchester, where they had concluded a most interesting match late on Saturday evening, the Man- [Manchester] chester men being declared the winners with three wickets Phe [The] 'usual prol [pro] 'he usual preliminaries having been gone throuch, [through] tho All Englanders went first to the wicket, sending in' the veteran Mynn [Mann] with Hillyer, to the bowling of G. Armitage and John Berry, who succeeded in lowering both wickets fer 9 runs. Ali England next sent in Parr, whose brilliant style of batting has been so much admi [admit] among the elte [else] of Lord's for three or four seasons. He hit away at his balls with wonderful precision, but we observed that he gave a chance when only three runs had been made, of which his adversaries did not avail themselves, or the result might have made a material difference in the All England score. When the wickets were drawn on Monday, Parr was still in possession of his wicket, hitting with his char- [characteristic] acteristic [characteristic] precision, and showing no' signs of giving his opponents a second chance,-of which they seemed on the alert to avail themselves had opportunity offered. The weather on was far from favourable, rain falling at intervals, and the wind blowing from the north- [northeast] east. The consequence was a small attendance of specta- [spectacle- spectators] tors to witness the continuation of the game. The batting of the other eight All England men was of the most proved style, and it-struck us that throughout their innings they had come to a determination to play the game as best they could, and not to give away a chance knowingly. The result of their first innings, including 99 scored by Parr, was the formidable number of 235, leaving Wisden still at the wicket, after he had scored 36. When the usual time had expired between the innings, the bell was rung and the field in cleared, and play called for the first innings of the Hudderstield [Huddersfield] and Dalton players. All England having taken up their respective points in the field, Huddersfield sent to the wickets W, S. Turnbull, Esq., and James Armytage, Esq., to the bowling of A. Mynn, [Mann] Esq., and Hillyer. The batting was remarkable steady on the part of both gentlemen, five overs being played without a single notch scored. Mr. Turnbull then gave Alfred Mynn [Mann] a chance, which was quickly embraced by Wisden, who caught him out after scoring 1, John Berry next jomed [domed] Mr. Armytage, and from the former's well-known style of batting he was the hope and expectation of the spectators, who, how- [however] ever, pending the chances of war, saw him caught out, after scoring only 3. J. Crosland next took the bat in hand, aud [and] was soon disposed of for 1, by a regular teazer [tears] from Mynn's [Mann's] round hand bowling. George Berry next joined Mr. Armytage, and made three splendid hits from the leg, but was compelled to retire with a score of 13, after a troublesome ball from Hillyer. A. Crosland then took the vacant wicket, when a beautiful ball from A. Mynn, [Mann] Esq., lowered the wicket of James Armytage, Esq., after batting very steadily for near upon three hours for 6 runs. George Armitage next joined Crosland, who played in good style for 12, when he surrendered to one of Mymn's [Hymn's] thunder- [thundering] ing balls. The remaining players were very soon displaced, except H. Boothroyd, who played a cautious game, and succeeded in scoring 15. The whole score of the Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field and Dalton players was 80. The admirable wicket keeping of Box, the bowling of Mynn [Mann] and Hillyer, and the fielding of the All England players generally, were much admired by the spectators. The Huddersfield players having still a large number of notches to get on Wednesday at noon, to tie in their seeond [second] innings, the All England players sent them to the wickets again; when the only players who made a stand against the superior bowling of A. Mynn, [Mann] Esq., and Wisden, were Joha [John] Berry and John Crosland. The wickets were drawn. at 5 p.m., on Wednesday, in order to enable the All Eng- [England] land players to proceed by the 615 p.m. train to Oxford, where they had engaged to play the next 'day. Durmg [Drug] the progress of the game the veteran Clarke and the other All England men complimented the managers of the ground on its excellent condition. The excitement and in- [interest] terest [interest] manifested during the game, will, we hope, tend to incite our local cricketers to greater exertions in this noble game, and thus enable them te compete more successfully sah [has] the All England players next season.

IT WAS AL, FOR WaATHER, [Weather] YER WorsHIPs. -James [Worship. -James] Bradley, a young Irishman, with a face like a rising sun, hair evidently as if it had been a Stranger to comb and brush for some mopths [months] at least, and-clothes which hung in the true Irish foshion [fashion] upon his batk, [bank] was brought before W. W. Battve [Battle] and Joseph Starkey, Esqrs., [Esquires] at the Guildhall, on Satv.rday [] last, by Inspector Townend, charged with being found in the streets begging, and so drunk that he was of taking care of himself. 'On the magistrates asking him what he had té say for himself in answer to the charge, he told the bench that he asked a person, whom he met, to give him a drink a' wather, [water] yer worships, and 'he thrated [threatened] me to three pints of ate. He 'further told the bench, amidst the convulsive laughter of the court, that he was not thrue [three] drunk, but so drunk that he could not manage to get the fourth pint to his mouth, ashe [she] upset and spilled it in the attempt. The worthy magistrates 'con i- dered [deed] the acts of this friend of his very injudicious, and on the young man promising that he would immediately leave the town, he was discharged.-In about half an hour he again made his appearance, in custody of Townend, to the great amusement of the'court. When asked how it ws that he had not fulfilled his promise, he said that he w s met by some comrades of his, and they wanted him to remain a short time, and they would give him some dinner. Townend, however, told the berich [breach] that he was called out of court to the fellow, and he found him in the yards, lead- [leading] ing to some of the warehouses, but when the officer made his appearance, the Irishman began to inquire for a pump. The youth appeared to puzzled visages of the worthy magistrates, and seemed delighted when they asked him if he would ieave [leave] the town if they gave him a shilling. He readily answered Yes, yer worships. The shillmg [shilling] was at once given him, and he was told if he came there again they would send him to prison. The Hibernian then bolted, and was followed by the shouts of the people outside, tried to detain him, but it proved abortive, as Pat never once turned his head until he had got completely out of sight of his old quarters.
