Sunpay-ScHoon [Sunday-School] Feasts.-Some 200 scholars. attached to the Independant [Independent] Chapel, at Lane, with, perhaps, a. still greater number of Wesleyans, celebrated their anniversary on Wednesday last, by walking in procession through the streets of Holmfirth, and afterwards partaking of tea and buns at their renpective [respective] shoot The pre; a very respectable and interesting app . ony [on] bespoke AD growing predilection Be that, boon of civilization-a sound un-sectarian, Sunday-school education. OF THE FeEastT. -Holmfirth [Feast. -Holmfirth] Feast was wont to be a matter of note. This year it has been a comparative failure, mainly, perhaps, through the interven- [intervention- intervention] tion [ion] of Huddersfield Fair. The principal attractions have been the bazaar, during Monday and Tuesday, at the Town-hall, and a concert at Holme Bridge on Monday night. The former was got up for the purpose of raising money wherewith to build a suitable room, at New Mill, in which to deliver temperance lectures and other effective pemeiples. [pimples] By dint of earnest exertions nearly 70 has enraised [en raised] for this object. The concert was well attended, and boasted of Mrs. Sunderland as the star. By this speculation upwards of 12 has been added to. the fund for defraying the debt upon the Holme Bridge Church of Eng. land and National School. Other amusements, too, there have been, in the shape of Wombwell's collection of wild beasts and the feathered tribe Bierby [Bib] and Griffith's pony eircus circus] with sundry smaller establishments, all of which, for one day at least, received their due shares of patronage. But decidedly the best treat is yet to come on, Although at the fag-end of the feast, and though apparently last, assuredly not least, amongst the caterers for popular favour, appears the necromantist [necromantic] and wonder-working pro- [professor] fessor [Professor] of magic, Herr Rosenfeld, who, having astonished, almost acared cared] from their propriety the good folks of Huddersfield, to-night electrifying and astound- [astounding] ing the lieges of Holmfirth by his magical tricks, HONLEY. WoxBWELL's [Maxwell's] MENAGERIE,-The inhabitants of Honley have again had an opportunity of seeing Mr. Wombwell's eollection [election] ofanimals. [of animals] This is the second time Mr.. Womb- [Wombwell] well has honoured Honley with a visit, having been here about 18 months ago. But this time he had 2 much more numerous collection of animals than before, and the inhabi- [inhabit- inhabitants] tants, [ants] to a large number, again availed themselves of the opportunity thus offered to see this valuable collection. The numerous visitors seemed well satisfied with the exhibi- [exhibit- exhibition] tion. [ion] Not the least attraction was the band which accom- [com- accompanied] panied [pained] the menagerie, the gentlemen of which performed some favourite pieces in avery [very] exccllent [excellent] manner to the great satisfaction of the lovers of harmony here, of whom there is a goodly number. Mr. Wombwell arrived on Wed- [Wednesday] nesday, [Wednesday] and remained over Thursday, and during his stay of course Honley was a busy place, HALIFAX. PHILHARMONIC SocieTy's [Society's] ConceRT.- [Concert.- Concert] This newly es- [established] tablished [established] musical society gave a grand miseellaneous [miscellaneous] Concert, on Tuesday, the 14th inst., in. the large room, Odd Fellows' Hall. The audience was. numerous and fashionable, above a hundred and fifty of the elite of the town occupying the front seats. Mrs. Sunderland and Mr. Ryalls were engaged for the occasion, and. gave great satis- [sates- satisfaction] faction. The band discharged their duties most creditably, and the overture Zampa, [Tampa, was applauded. Mr. Frobisher as conductor, and in presiding at the piano forte, was quite at home. We rejoice to hear the society already numbers upwards of 200 subscribers. MissloNaRY [Missionary] SoclETY.-The [Society.-The] Halifax branch ofthe [of the] Church Missionary Society held their annual services on Sunday last, at the three churches in the town.

The defendant, it. seems, employs several horses in cvaling [calling] for Mr. Brook, of Meltham Mills, and sometimes the detendant's [defendant's] horses were employed to garry [Harry] goods for Mr. Brook to Hudderstie ld [Huddersfield ld] and the ques- [question] tion [ion] was, whether on the waggors [wages coming back, and the horses being unladen at the mill they could pass through the bar mto [to] the pasture, without te defendant beirgrliable [reliable] to pay toll for them.

LINTHWAITE. More ErFects [Effects ce Drink.- [Drink] A the Guildhall, en Satur- [Star- Saturday] day last, before W'.. W. Batty., and J. Starkey, Esqs., [Esq] Carter and John Haigh were charged by an elderly man, named James Bamford, with wilfully assaulting, and otherwise ill-treating him.. Mv. Battye (of the. firm of Battye and Clay) appeared for the deféndants.. [defendants] From the statement of complainant, it-appeared that on the evening of the 7th May, he was waiting at. the Sun Inn, Slaithwaite, of a brother of bis returning trom [from] Manchester, and about ten or eleven o'clock he left the public house ta gehome, [home] When he got a short distance from the house,. he stated that two men came up to him, knocked -him dawn, and robbed him of two He then managed to get up, and seeing a light in the house of a man named Lunn, a neighbour of his, made the best of his way there. On his arrival at Lunn's he went in, and there founckthe [fourchette] two. defendants, who immediately, without any provocation, seized hold of him, aad [and] committed the assault complained of. In answer to questions fram [farm] the bench, Bamford. admitted that he was drunk at the time. He had no witnesses to support his statement, In defence, it was stated, and witnesses called to prove the statement, that Bamford was 86 drunk that he rially [really] did not know what he was doing; that he had been quarrelling with his brother and sistersin-law [sister sin-law] at the Sun Inn, and that the sister-in-law struck him; that he was turned cut of the house for being Aisorderly [Disorderly] 3. that he atterwards [afterwards] went into Jjunn's [Jun's] house, and demanded lodgings, and uyon [upon] his being told that he could not be accommodated, he went forward into an inner oom, room] where Lunn's children and sat him down upon she bed's side, and declared thut [that] he was where he skuuld [skilled] THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, MAY 18, 1880. eS 'remain until morning. Lunn, then seeing that he could do no good with him, asked the two defendants to assist himr [him] to turn Bamford out of the house; and, from the evi- [vi- evidence] denee, [dene] it appeared that no more violence had been used 'than was necessary to carry that object into effect. The dench [bench] thought that Lunn, and these young men ought to have seen the complainant home, seeing the state he was in; and censured very severely the conduct of the landlord of the Sun Inn, for turning the man out without some one to. guide him. They then informed Bamford that as he had no witnesses to support his statement, abkhough [although] he assured them it was quite correct in point, they must dismiss the case; but eautioned [cautioned] him against getting drunk in future. GOLCAR., Desgrtios [describes] OF A WIFE AND -At, the Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field Court-house, on Tuesday, before J. Starkey and Joshua Charlesworth, Esgrs., [Egress] a man some fifty years of age named Daniel Bailey, was c by the Relieting-officer [Relieving-officer] of Golear, [Golcar] with having left his wife and six children charge- [chargeable] able to the above township for several months past, to whom parish relief amounting to 15 10s, Od. has been given for their necesgary [necessary] maintenance during the time that the cruel father had kept ont of the way. It appeared that the defendant is a throstle-oyerlooker, [Thistle-o'clock] and, when in work, capable of earning good wages, but has for a nun. ber. [be] of years past resorted to every conceivable mode of getting out.of the maintenance of his wife and family. He hag, it. appears been imprisoned for.such neglect on two separate occasions, by parishes where. he has left, his family charge- [chargeable] able. Frons [Irons] the statement of the offiger, [officer] it appeared that the prisoner had been working for several months past at Stockport, where he cohabited with, another woman, and under an assumedname, [assumed name] Finding the union-officer oa his track, he removed to Manchester, and within the last few weeks had been employed as an overlooker in a mill at Mossley, where he was apprehended by Superinten- [Superintend- Superintendent] dent Heaton. on Monday last, on the present chargo. [charge] The prisoner, in defence, exprensed [expressed] himself willing to live with, and maintain his wife and family in the future, and liquidate the claims of the parish authorities, provided they allow him time so to do, but assigned as his. reason for neglecting them, the circumstances of his having been for a long time out of work. The latter portion of this statement the relieving-officer denied, on the authority of enquiries made. ting the prisoner at Stockport, and further refused to, make terms with him for re-payment at any sitbsequent [subsequently] period, inasmuch has he had made fools of the authorities at Stockport under a promise similarly mace. This being the case, the prisoner was sent to re- [recreate] create himself for the space of three months at the Wake- [Wakefield] field House of Correction. KIRKHEATON. A Fammy [Mammy] SquaBBLe.-A [Squabble.-A] young man named William Jordan, from Kirkheaton, was charged before the magis- [magic- magistrates] trates, [rates] on Saturday, wish his mins [mind] ho Lo Nee t appeared that the ily [il] was origin m [in] ing- [ignore] hanehire, [Hampshire] and it transpired that the father had frequently left the family, at one time for more than two years, and during those periods never contributed towards their sup- [support] port, and that William, the present defendant, had his mother to keep that on the day in question he had been to mect [met] 2 sister, who was married, and resides with her . husband im [in] a distant part of the country. This sister had f buried her child, and was come over to see her mother and family. William and the father met, some words ensued, in the course of which the father charged his daughter with being a common girl, which so raised the ire of the son that he forgot the near relationship in which they stood to each other, and struck the old man on the mouth. The offence was admitted, and the defendant added that he was very sorry for having done so, but contended that the aggravation was very great. The worthy magistrates repri- [repair- reprimanded] manded [Madden] him severely for striking the old man, but also read the old man a severe lecture for his want of fatherly feeling towards his, wifé-and [wife-and] family, but especiatty [especially] towards his daughter.

The-scarlct [The-scarlet] fever is very prevalent in some of the densely populated districts. of this town, and in many instances has proved fatal. MEcHaNIcs' [Mechanics] second annual soiree of this literary society was celebrated on Friday, the 10th instant, in the Mechanics' Hall, Wellington-street. .This edifice, which has recently been converted from a theatre, has undergone considerable improvements and alterations in the interior, in order that it might be more suitably adapted for a lecture room, and for the general of the institution. A floor has been thrown over the pit and made; on a level with the stage. The a ce of the boxes and gallery has been wonderfully improved by painting. Some additional gas lights have been placed in various positions, and a variety of innovations. introduced, - and great improvements fe, both as regards the ap- [appearance] pearance [appearance] and convenience of the interior. The interior was tastefully decorated. Flags, festoons, and appropriate mottoes were beautifully arranged. About 200 mdividuals [individuals] partook of tea, which had been amply and gratuitously provided by the respective tray presiders Afterthe [After the] presi- [press- president] dent, Richard Inns, Esq., had epened [opened] the proceedings, the assembly was, addressed by the very. Rev. H. D. Erskine (Dean of Ripon, Joseph Eocke, [Locke] Esq., M.P., John Hope Shaw, Esy., [Es] Mr. Thos. Lister, Mr. Amos Maudsley, Mr. Cook, and other members of the institution. .The report was read by Mr. James Milner, one of the secretaries, and showed that the library during-the preceding- [preceding year] year had re- [received] ceived [received] some valuable accessions that the amount in the funds of the institution was about 35 and that 190 male, and 30 female members, belonged to the society. Joseph Locke was looked upon with considerable interest, as his early reminiscences are connected with this town. The earlier period of his life was spent in Barnsley, and his early education received at the Chureh-strect [Church-street] Grammar School. A Bhouch [A Ouch] his parents were poor, and he was not attended by privileges of an uncommon character, he has by his like an intimate, scientific friend of his, the late Mr. Geo. Stephenson, attained an honourable and pre-eminent. posi- [post- position] tion [ion] in society. 'The audience evinced their gratification at his rising reputation, and their wishes for his contmued [continued] prosperity, by rapturous applause, especially in those parts of bis address which had some relation to. his early con- [connections] nections, [sections] and when he stated that this was the first public acquaintance-er-connection he had had with the town of Barnsley during the past 30 years. -He said he was elated by the proceedings of the evening, and shoukt [should] cultivate the acquaintance of his old friends and fellow-townsmea. [fellow-towns] We 'learnt, from a later speaker, that Myr. [Mr] Locke has made 'some valuable contributions to this socicty, [society] and assisted other plausible objects connected with his native town. The entertainments of the were considerably en- [enhanced] hanced [handed] by the musizal [musical] services of Miss Wood, Mr. Heming- [Hemming- Hemingway] way, Mr. Hepworth, Miss Hepworth, Mr. Henry Surtees, violinist, and Mr. Hartley, pianist.

Owing to the day having beep. remarkably fine, an un.- sually [sally] large number of country people were present, who might have been observed feasting their eyes with the won- [wondrous] drous [dross] sights that are presented on these occasions. We noticed many of the light fingered gents, who, have been present on former occasions, but did not hear of any mo-. neys [ness] being extracted from the pockets of any partics, [parties] or parralleled [parallel] in the fairs of Barnsley, unceasing exertions and undaunted pursuit after knowledge, EXHIBITION OF THE Works oF IxpusTRY.-A [Industry.-A] meeting , any person who will give information that may lead to the. the Pontefract road, by Benjamin Hilton and Major Bates, for 5.

Sir,-In consequence of your to publish in your last number my letter of the 8th instant, in reply to A Cellar Dweller's, which appeared in your columns of the 4th instant, on the rou [our of its personality, I again appeal to you, feeling confident. that justice to myself and a cor- [correction] rection, [section] of the -mi sentations [stations] contained in A Cellar Dweller's last letter, justify me in asking you to insert this. A Cellar Dweller says, that it is my ire at the idea of our surrounding filth being got rid of thet [the] has induced me to call his former communication in question. It is no such thing, I have manifested no ire. I have merely stated the real position of Nextown, [Next] in, contradis- [contra dis- contradistinction] tinction [distinction] to. his, exaggerated statements. He spoke in his first letter of 'the corners being crowded with pig-cotes and heaps of dung. He cannot j that assertion, Therenson [Thereon] is obvious there are no suc [such] things therefore it is an exaggeration. He now admits that they are on a portion ef open area to which I alluded. In the fourth and fifth paragraphs of 'A Cellar Dweller's last letter, I find that he wants to make it appear as if I had said there was 'a capacious highway in connection with the present Newtown. He could have come to no such conclusion if he had impartially quoted what I wrote. I said, that at the distance of a capacious highway from the front of this single row there was erected a high wall, &0. If A Cellar Dweller had, not been inclined to, pervert its true meaning, he raust [rust] have known that I did net say that there was literally a highway. But, however, it is much in keeping with his assertion that the large area of open ground is. all 'covered with filth and nastiness. The power of A Cellar Dweller's exaggeration is still further developed in his assertion, that there are no sewers at Newtown. I will just put this in juxtaposition with the fact of the case, and see what affinity they have to each other. I will take the yard that I live in to illustrate our position in that respect ; and I cannot be accused of making a partial selection, as it contains more dwellings than any other yard at Newtown. Well, then, near the doors of the under dwellings is placed perforated stone-headings of drains, which. drains go, to. the ranch sewer, that is so situated that the top dwellers may throye [throne] off their slops without any remaining on the surface ; and I fearlessly challenge either A Cellar Dweller or any ane [an] else to point out in this town the same number of dwellings on the same space of ground which are occupied by the labouring class, that surpass them in cleanliness. e above-mentioned branch sewer, and the others in con- [connection] nection [section] with the other buildmgs, [buildings] go to the main sewer ; which is down the front of Newtown, going in a north-east- [eastern] ern [er] direction, and discharging itself into a receptacle betwixt the Bradford and Leeds road. This being the case, A Cellar Dweller must either have uttered a deliberate falsehood, or written on a subject.of which he was totally ignorant at least, his statements are proved to be erro [error] neous [noes] without the aid of such scurrilous language as that of coraparing [preparing] men to swine. Sensible men will apply this to whee it is justly applicable. 'A Cellar Dweller asks, how came the cholera to visit the eastern edges of Newtown. I am informed, on indisputable authority, that the man that has been bereaved of a wife in one of those cases, had with his wife and family visited Johnny Moor Hill, where was situated the notorious Pestilential ; Pond, the cholera raging there at the time, the whole of the family was immediately attacked. It is pro- [probable] bable [able] that in that neighbourhood they inhaled its destruc- [district- destructive] tive [tie] influence.' The other case that immediately followed was that ofa [of] man. He had been out of the doors the whole of the night preceding his attack his wife was undergoing the pains of child-birth, and he was secking [seeking] her medical aid the rain at the time descending im [in] torrents. A strong opinion prevails that he came to a.premature death by so doing. Isee [See] no proof, however, that these cases were pro- [produced] duced [duce] by any deleterious influence at Newtown. A Cellar Dweller says, there are open ditches of filth and nastiness at Newtown. He says, -'there is one at. the south end, that there is an open running of water. I admit that it comes from the spring that did once supply the baths that were in the Bath Buildings; but that all the drainage from Belgrave Terrace, Highfield, Brunswick Pince, Newhouse, Bath Buildings, the contents of their numerous water closets and all, run down this water, I very much question; at least those who come in contact with it by their daily avocation, can detect no such con- [contents] tents. Cellar Dweller must have a refined taste and a delicate when air, earth, and pure water are to him filth and nastiness. 'A Cellar Dweller talks of privies without seats for women to use. I can find no such thing. That some of them are in a bad con- [condition] dition [edition] I admit the owners of cottage property would ere this have had them repaired, but they expected that the Improvement Commissioners would want them. construct- [constructed] do them in conformity with their wishes, and I want them 80 to he done, .I stand not in the. defence of filth and nastiness, nor yet do I 'plead in defence of the privilege of being so. I want not the morals of or children to be contaminated for want. of decent, private. accom- [com- accommodation] modation. [moderation. But I do plead in defence of the privilege of a labouring man keeping a pig for domestic use when. that privilege can be exercised so as not to be detri- [Detroit- detrimental] mental to the sanitary condition of the surrounding neigh- [neighbourhood] bourhood, [boyhood] and I contend it can be so. exercised in such places as Newtown, and maugre [mature all the ravings of A Cellar Dweller. I perhaps shall stand in defence of this privilege when his cxaggeration generation is consigned to that bourn of cblivion [Bolivian] which it so justly merits.-I am, Sir, truly yours in the cause of truth and justice, ENOCH SYKES., Lueas [Leas] Yard, Newtown, Huddersfield, May 15th, [the] 1850. IMPEREFAL [IMPERIAL] PARLEAMENT. [PARLIAMENT] (Continued from the Sixth Page.) HOUSE OF LORDS. Thursday, May 16. Lord called the attention of the Marquis of Lansdowne to the sudden departure of the French Ambas- [Abbas] sador [said] on the anniversary of Her Majesty's birthday, and hoped that no diminution of the friendly fecling [feeling] existing between England and France was to be inferred from that oceurrance [assurance] The Marquis of said that the departure of the French Ambassador on Her Majesty's birthday was purely accidental, and was te be referred entirely to the desire of the Freneh [French] Government to have the benctit, [benefit] of bis presence in Paris. 'The Maxyuis [Maxims] of LonDONDERRY [London] wished to know whether the Russian Ambassador was a party to the convention made in this country between M. Drouyn [Drown] de-Lhuys [de-Hus] and Viseount [Viscount] Palmerston He also wanted to know whether, on the departure of Baron Gros [Gross] from Athens, there was any communication as to his departure made to the Rus [Us] sian Minister at Athens before the commencament.of [commencement.of] hos- [hostilities] tilities [hostilities] against Greece, of which Russia, recollected, was one of the-protectors ,..... The. Marquis of LANSDOWNE that if the noble marquis had been in the house when he gave his explanation on a former occasion, he would have heard him say, that it was not at present desi [dis] rable [able] to enter into further .discussion on the subject. Full information would, be afforded when the correspondence was laid before the house. Their Lordships then adjourned, after having dispose ef,some other business, HOUSE OF COMMONS. Thursday, May 16. THe [The] APRAIRS [PAIRS] OF GREECE.-In repl [real] by Mr. Green, Lord stated that the discussion between the British and Greck [Greek] Governments hed [he] been so far settled that no appreltension [apprehension] need be entertainesl [entertain] that commerce would be molested, the only matter-remain- [remaining] ing was-the-investigation of M. Pacifico's [Pacific's] claims relating to. Portugal. With respect. .the question whether. the good understanding betweer the [between the] British and French Governments had been interrupted' by the mode in which the settlement had been effactod, [effected] his Lordship said, of eourse [course] the French Government would have preferred' (as weH [we] as our own Government) that the settlement should have-bcen [have-been] effected through their intervention; circumstances, however; had interposed to prevent this mode of adjustment taking place, but he trusted that nothmg [nothing] would arise from this cause likely to. disturb the friendly relations between the two Governments. The house having resolved. itself into committee upon the Life Policies of Assurance (No. 2) Bill, a division took place upon the first clause, by which, in effect, the bill was lost by a majority of 3. The house then went into committee upen [upon] the Public Libraries and Museum Bill (in progress), which, after any other offences committed, a cireumstance [circumstance] almost un- [undergoing] undergoing amendments, was reported, and ordered to be recominitted.
