8 THE LONGWOOD WATER CASE. Westminster Hall, Saturiay, [Saturday] Jan. 12, 1856. COURT OF EXCHEQUER. BROADBENT v. RAMSBOTHAM. [RAMSBOTTOM] This was an action brought by the plaintiff, a millowner [milliner] at Longwood, near Huddersfield, against the defendants, Dr. Hedgsun [Hudson] Ramsboth#fh, [Rams both#fh] the receiver of the estates of Miss Clara (now Mrs. Clarke) Thornhill, and her tenant, for diverting some springs or streams of water to which the laintiff [plaintiff] claimed title. The question involved in the claim was one of the most importaut [important] ever brought before a court for if the plaintiff had been successful, a sure blow would have been struck at the extensive drainave [drainage] operations of the whole kingdom. In fact, the battle of the land owners on the question of drainage bas been fought in the person of Mrs. Clarke Thorvhill, [Thornhill] through her agent and tenant. Mrs. Clarke Thornhill being then a ward in Chancery the facts of the cuse [use] were biouglt [bilious] before the Court of Chancery before the action could be defended. The unds [funds] of defence as then contended for were very simple; and Mr. Pugh, the chief clerk of Vice-Chancellor Kinders- [Kinder- Kindersley] ley, mle [me] the order to defend. We refer to this as showing that the Court of Chancery took a correct view upon a question of common law right, which had never been pre- [previously] viously [obviously] decided by any of the law courts. The action was commenced in January, 1853, and was set down to be tried before a special jury at the York Sum- [Summer] mer [Mr] Assizes in that year; but in consequence of the press of business it was made the subject of reference, and ordered to be stated by the arbitrator in the form of a special case, for the opinion and decision of the court. a 'x . , ere began the more inteuse [intense] anxieties of the parties, who were before the arbitrator with evidence buth [but] in London and in various parts of the conntry [country] for nearly two months; in con-eyuence [con-Essence] of the course the ease then took on the part of the plaintiff, the defendant was under the necessity of procuring the attendance of some of the most eminent scientific witnesses in the kingdom. The ev.dence [ev.dene] being closed, the rest step was for the arbitrator t prepare the draft of the special case. 'This being done the special case was delivered to the parues [Paris] ; and it then became the province of the plaintiff's counsel and attorney to putit [petit] into theshape [the shape] contented for by him The special case was then furnished to the detendant, [defendant] and it was the duty of his counsel and attorneys to pni [no] the case intv [into] the form which the defendant contended for. The counsel and attorueys [Attorney] on both sides could not agree upon the form in which the case should be submitted to the court; and eventually the case was settled by the arbitrator in tue presence of all parties (after an expendi- [expend- expenditure] ture [true] of time and money truly awtal), [ital] and was set down for argument in the usual way before the full court. The value of the thing in dispute could not be more than a few hundred pounds, but the principle involved in the case is one of the greatest importance. The costs, it is believe-t, will amount to new 4,U00; 4,U] we have heard them stated by a who shonld [should] have a kuowledge [knowledge] on the subject, at not less than 7,000, The affecting incidents connected with this important cause may be profitably referred to. Mr. Cowling, whose loss is so deeply deplored in Westminster-hall, died shortly after his able for the defeundaut [defendant] and it will be remembered that Mr. Robert Hail, the Recorder of Don- [Doncaster] easter, [Eastern] one of the plaintif's [plaintiff's] couusel, [counsel] met with a most appalling accident pn the Great Northern Railway at Leeds and his recovery was very remarkable, The other counsel engaged in the cause were for the plaintiff, Mr Knowles, Q.C., and Mr. Pickering and for the detendant, [defendant] Mr. Watson, Q.C.,aud [Q.C.,and] Mr Tindal Atkinson. The attorneys engaged were for the plaiutitf, [plaintiff] Mr. Hesp, of Huddersfield and for the defendant, Messrs. Wharton and Ford, 8, Lincoln's Inn Fiells, [Fields] Loudon; and their agent, Mr. Barker, of Huddersfield. Before laying the judgment before our readers, it is necessary to suy [say] that the case, divested of all the extrinsic evidence added to it in the progress of the enquiry, and which was in no way adverted to by the learned baron who delivered judement, [judgment] assume the form it presented when the Court of Chancery directed the action to be defended. The case was argaed [aged] before the Lord Chief Baron, and Barons Parke (now isord [used] Wensleydale), Alderson, and Platt; and Mr. Baron Alderson delivered judgment on Saturday, the 12th instant, as follows - In the case of Broadbeut [Broadbent] 7. Ramsbotham, [Ramsbottom] the court took time to consider its judgmeut, [judgment] and they are now prepaed [prepared] to giveit. [give it] In this case we have been relieved from the consideration of the pleas justitying [studying] the abstraction of the water under the provisions of the Huddersfield Water Works Act, by the admission very properly made by the late Mr. Cowling, (whose loss lam sure that every one in this court, and in Westminster Hall, will very deeply lament, upon his arguinent, [Argentine] that he could not support that part of the case; and the questions are now reduced to this one alone -Whether the defendant has improperly diverted, by the acts which he has undoubtedly done, four sources of water, which were, as the plaintiff contends, supplied to Longwood upon which his mill is situate. There are three of these included in the first count of the declaration, namely, a pond of six acres and a half a swamp of about 16 perches and a well; and the fourth, which is included in the second count, is a well. And there ix nu doubt, in the course of the drainage, all these four suarces [Sauces] of water lace been diverted and they now fall into a drain made by the defendants for their own pur- [our- purposes] poses, aul [al] the who stated this case, describes them thus -First, he says, as to the six and a half acre ond [and] from the side of the hill called Pig Hitl [Hill] Wood and endie [indie] Hill the natural flow of water is northward, until it reaches Lonywood [Longwood] bicok [bock] aud [and] all water passing over the land there naturally ran down tuwards [towards] and into the Long- [Longwood] wood brook, 'This shallow basin 's formed by the land slips, which from time tu time have occurred, and the water col- [collected] lected [elected] in it, if it excecds [excess] the depth of three feet above the lowest point of the basin, escapes northward, aud [and] runs down over the surface of the bill towardsthe [towards the] Longwood brook, the rest of the water siuks [Silks] into the ground or remains asa pond in the hollow, thus naturally create t by the fall of the land. Now we think that this water, both that which overflows and that which sinks into the land, belongs absolutely to the defendant upon whose land it arises, and is uot [not] affected by any right of the plaintiff at all, The right to the natural flow of the water in Longwood brook uudoubtediy [undoubted] belongs to the plaintiff; but we think that this right caunot [cannot] extend further than the right to that which fiows [foes] iuto [into] the brook itself, and the waters flowing into a natural channel either subterranean or otherwise, or over the surfice [service] communicating with the brook itself. No doubt all the waters falling frum [from] the heavens aud [and] shed upon the surface of the hill at the foot of which the brovk [Brook] runs, must by natural force of gravity find its way to the bottom and so into the brook bat this does not prevent the owner of the land on which this water fails f om dealing with it as he pleases and appropriating it to his own purposes. He cannot, it is true, do so if the water bas once arrived at and is flowing into some natural channel already formed; but he has a perfect right to appropriate the water before it arrives at such a channel. In this case the basin is formed upon his own land, and the water belongs to him and the water from heaven ludyes [dyes] there. There is here no watercourse at all. If this water exceeds a certain depth and escapes upon the land and Squanders itself, so to speak, over the adjoining surface, the owner of the soil has clearly a right to drain this shallow poud [pound] and get rid of the incuuvenience [inconvenience] at his own pleasure. We have no doubt therefore as to this source of feediug [feeding] of Longwood brovk [Brook] the plaintifi [plaintiff] has no title. The same inay [any] be said of the swamp of sixteen perches which is mere'y like a sponge, so to speak. fixed on the side ot the hill. If this it creates a sort of marsh adjoining, aud [and] there is properly no course of water either into or on the surface of the land. As to the subterranean courses communicating with this swamp which must exist, it is sufficceut [suffice] to say they are not traceaple [traceable] so as to show the water passinz [passing] along them ever Longwood brook. 'This falls therefure [therefore] into the same category, or rather is a stronger instance of the rule betore [before] mentioned. The wel [well on this pvint [point] is also of a similar class. It is not found in the case that it las any subterranean commu- [com- communication] nication [nation] with Longwood brook. If it had any such cominunication [communication] inasmuch as the brook is far below the water of this shallow well, the communicativn [communication] would probably draw off the water in it imraediately. [immediately] It is sufficient, however, to say it is not found in the case so to communicate. But no doubt when this Water overflows, it is true that the overflow pours itself over and down the declivity towards the brook but this, as we have shown in the case of the six and a-half acre poud, [pound] gives no right to the water which flows over the land. 'These are the three grounds of the plaintiff's com- [complaint] plaint contained in the first count of his declaration and they all seem to us to Inil, [Only] We come now to the second count. The stream here said to be diverted is one in which, on the side of the hill, a stream wells out from the ground at a depth of about two teet, [tee] and is received into a basin of about three fest square, aud [and] used as a watering place fir caitle. [Castle] This stream, in dry seasons, was some- [somewhat] what scanty, so as to compel the cattle at those periods to go down upon their knees to reach it. At other times it overflows the basin, and then runs down a part of the way in an open and, as we presume, artificial ditch, described as a ditch beside the hedge. The water, lower down in its course, fluws [flues] on in a small channel formed by the water itself, and over swampy places where the cattle had trodden in the soil. Still lower down, after passing through one or two fie'ds, it arrives at what is described as a natural valley; and after this it would probably have communi- [common- communicated] cated [acted] with the Longwood brcok [Brook] itself but for this diver- [diversion] sion, or have fallen into the Millowners [Milliners] Compensation ryvir, [river] which is in fact the same thing. There is also, we think, nothing found to take the water from this well out of the same cluss [class] as the three former cases. We must consider the stream at its beginuing, [beginning] and not after it has arrived at the natural valley communicating with the reservoir, If the water, after having arrived there, had been then diverted, the case would be The water falling from heaven on the side of the hill, we have befure [before] s id, may be although not after it has once arrived at a define natural watercourse; and the question here is, whether this water, in its first orizin [origin] and before it tas [as] arrived at any define natural watercourse, it onwards [onward] towards Longwood brook has not been intercepted by the defendant's well, and so appropiiated [appropriate] by him; and we think it has. For what are the facts The water in dispute is only the overflow of a well, and the well is now pre. vented from overfiowing [overflowing] but when, before it did over- [overflow] flow, it ran into a ditch, the lowest adjoining ground of the ditch made artificially, and for a totally difierent [different] , it ran by the side ot a hedye. [Hyde] This was no natural detined [detained] watercourse, Afcer [After] that it squandered itself over the swamp made by the feet of cattle treading into it; and it is not uatil [until] long after, that what scl [cl] remains of it, finds its way into what might perhaps be called a really definite natural watercourse, recelviug, [resolved] probably, in addiuion [addition] to this, other water pioceediag [proceeding] from other sources also. This part of the case we think wholly uudistinguishable [distinguishable] from, and is verne [Nerve] by, the decision of this court in the late cause of v. Taylor; this complaint, therefore, fails also. The result is, without going into any question as to its being due by te defendants in the rightful exercise of their power of draiuing [daring] their own land, which probaly [probably] the Pleadin;;s [Leading;;s] do not raise, that the plaintiff has failed to establish any right to the natural flow of these - Of water or any of them, and on this part of the case our judgment must be for the defendant. The other issues tmust [must] he found, and the costs arising out of them must go for the plaintiff.

[Intelligence] MELTHAM. THE LATE ATTEMPTED ROBBERY WITH VIOLENCE.-In the case of the attempted robbery of Mr. Hirst on Friday week, the most active and energetic measures have beon [been] taken by the constables of Meltham, assisted by the inde- [ind- indefatigable] fatigable [football] Mr. Earnshaw. of Holmfirth. and Mr. Superin- [Superior- Superintendent] tendant [tenant] Heaton, the result of which has been the apprehen- [apprehend- apprehension] sion of a young man, named Jonathan Hinchliffe, on Monday last, on the charge of being concerned in the affair. Hinchliffe, who is now in custody, was taken befure [before] the bench on Tuesday, and remanded till this day (Saturday). 20 bas been offered by Mr. Hirst, and 10 by the Meltham Prosecution Society, for the apprehension aud [and] conviction of THE ROUTLEDGE MORTGAGE. COURT OF QUEEN'S BENCH, Tuurspay, [Tuesday] January 17. HOPE AND OTHERS v. HAYLEY AND OTH [OH RS,-It will be in the recollection of our readers that this was a case arising out of certain transactions between Mr. Samuel Routledge and Mr, Hayley and other gentlemen, friends of Mr. Rout- [Routledge] ledge, who rendered him pecuniary assistance in bis busi- [bus- business] ness in the early part of the year 1853, by which both he and his estate were considerably benefitted. [benefit] Those gen- [gentlemen] tlemen [gentlemen] took a mortgaye [mortgage] as an indemnity ayainst [against] the security which they gave to the West Riding Union Bank- [Banking] ing Company; and having paid the amount due to the bank, they realised their mortgage security. This plain and straightforward transactiun [transaction] the assiznees [assizes] of Mr. Rout- [Rutledge] elige [liege] thought fit to impeach, and brought an n azainst [against] Mr. Hayley and the other gentlemen who had stepped for- [forward] ward to help Mr. Routledge in his hour of need. 'lhe [he] cause was tried at York in July last, when plaintiffs (the were nonsuited, [non suited] the Judge expressing a very strong opiuion [opinion] that all which had been done was fair, correct, and upright, and that Mr. Routledze's [Troubled's] estate had been much besefitted [benefited] by what had been done. The counsel for the assiznees, [assizes] however, had leave given them to move the cuurt [court] above, if they thought fit to do so, to have a verdict entered for the assignees either for 6,225, the full amoimt [amount] claimed, or for 661 Gs. 9d., the value of certain property acquired by Mr. Rontledye [Ronald] after the date of the security in question. and which had been substituted by him, under a provision fer that purpose in the dved, [died] in lieu of other similar articles consumed by him. Garrotte RoBBERY [Robbery] aT MANCHESTER.-A very daring and brutal garrotte robbery was committed early on Sunday evening, in Blackfriars-street. Between seven and eight o'clock Mr. William Haslam, marine store dealer, of York- [Yorkshire] sbire-street, [shire-street, -street] Salford, was passing along Blackfriars-street, when he was attacked by three men. One of them threw hisarm [harm] round Mr. Haslam's neck from bebindand [abundant] throttled bim [bi] until he was nearly senseless; a second stole his watch and guard; and the third, from the severe injury which Mr. Haslam has sustained at the back of the head, no doubt struck him violently with a life preserver. Mr. Haslam was left lying on the footpath; and he must have remained there senseless for at least several minutes. The watch stolen was a verge one, of silver, and of large size, weighing about nine ounces. It was made by Bell, Uttoxeter, is numbered 4,357, and has the initials W. H. engraved both on the outer and the innercase. [increase] There were attached to it a gold Albert chain, and a key in the shape of a common door-key. FataL [Fatal] HORIZONTAL-SHAFT ACCIDENT.-On Monday Ms Herford [Hereford] held an inque t [inquest t] on the body of Thomas Constan- [Constant- Constantine] tine, dyer, aged 42, of Newton Heath, near Manchester. -Peter Fagan said that he and the decease were employed at the dyeworks of Mr. George Calcheth. [Cloth] On Friday last, the deceased set him to put a strap overa [over] pulley that stood still and the deceased yot [not] upon a ladder to put the same strap over the engine pulley, or a pulley on an horizon- [horizontal] tal shaft then in motion. Whilst the deceased was stretch- [stretching] ing across the shaft to put the strap on the pulley, his slop which was tattered, was caught by the shaft and drawn rouud [round] it, and the deceased was also taken several times round. 'lhe [he] witness called for aid, and also ran to stop the engine and as svon [son] a3 that was done the deceased fell to floor very much injured. He was sober. He was taken home, and aiterwards [afterwards] to the Royal Infirmary, where he died on Saturday. Another man employed at the works, named Dewhurst, said that he witnessed the accident. The deceased could not very well put the strap on when the shaft was still. The witness had cautioned the deceased several times about his slop.-A verdict of Accidental death was returned. The deceased leaves a widow and four children. DECLINE OF CRIME IN CorK.-A [Cork.-A] circumstance as gra- [ga- gratifying] tifying [defying] as entirely unprecedented tvok [took] place at the opeuing [opening] of the Cork sessions, on Friday, the assistant-barrister, Serjeant [Sergeant] Berwick, hasing [chasing] been presented with a pair of white gloves by Mr. Townsend, sub-sheriff of the county, there being no ciiminal [criminal] case whatever for trial before his The assignees moved the Court of Queen's Bench in Novem- [November- November] ber [be] last. for a rule accordingly, That court, however, refuse to granta [grant] rule for the larger sum, but grauted [granted] a rule nisi [nos] as regarded the 601 6s. 9d. Tie rule came on for argument on Thursday last, when the court, consisting of Lord Campbell, and Justices Wightinan [Lightning] and Crompton, gave au unanimous judgement in favour of Mr. Haley and the other geutlemen [gentlemen] acting with him, and dis- [discharged] charged the rule. The consequence of this decision is, that the mortgage security given by Mr. Routledge has been wholly upheld; and the very strong remarks made by Mr, Baron Piatt at York, as to the manner in which the estate had been benefitted [benefit] by that transaction, have been ful'y [full'y] borne vut [but] by the uuanimous [unanimous] decision of the higher tribunal, to which the assignees thought fit to appeal. ee COMMITTAL OF THE RUGELEY POST- [POSTMASTER] MASTER FOR OPENING A LETTER. It has been stated that the contents ofa [of] letter respecting the result of the analysis of the stomach and intestines of the late Mr. John Parsons Cook, written by Pro- [Professor] fessor [Professor] Taylor to Mr. Gardner, solicitor, of Rugeley, had been improperley [improperly] made known to Mr. William Palmer, who was suspected of having caused the death of the deceased, aud [and] who was subsequently com- [committed] mitted [fitted] for trial on the charge of having wilfully murdered him. As Mr. Gardner had not eummunicated [communicated] Professur [Professor] Taylor's information to any one, at the time it was made known to Mr. Palmer, the suspicion naturally arose that some person in Ruyeley [Riley] Post-office had opened the letter in question, while it was passing through that office. An investigation into the circumstances counected [connected] with the letter was instituted, and resulted in suspicion being attached to Mr. Samuel Cheshire, jun., the depnty [deputy] post- [postmaster] master. Further enquiry led to the suspicion beiny [being] so far that the Post office authorities determined to have the matter careiully [carefully] investisated, [investigated] and an officer from the London Post office was put in charge of the Rugeley Post-office. It was also determined to proceed against Mr. Cheshire for a misdemeanour, and on Thursday week he appeared before sev [se] ral al] magistrates at Ruyeley, [Riley] upon au information charging him with having, on the 5th Decem- [December- December] ber [be] last, opened, or suffered to be opened, a letter passing through the pust-office, [post-office] contrary to the form of the statute the solicitur [solicitor] to the attended to conduct the case for the prosecution, which he said was instituted by the Postmaster-general.-Mr. Beaufort, surveyor of the post- [post office] office Mr. Gardner, solicltor [solicitor] to the representatives of the late Mr. J. P. Cook and Mr. J. H. Hatton, chief consta- [constant- constable] ble [be] of the county, were also in atlendance. [attendance] After a mass of evide ce [evident ce] had been adduced, detailing the circumstances of the case liuk [like] by link, Ellis Crisp, inspector of police, stated-About eleven o'clock yesterday morning Mr. Cheshire was sent fur into this room, and he was tol' [to] that the coutents [contents] of Professor 'Taylor's letter to Mr, Gardner bad been communicated to Mr. W. Palmer, and that Mr. Palmer had communicated the same tu Mr. Ward, the coroner He was further told that the Postmaster-General had determined upun [upon] having all the circumstances of the case fully iuvestigated, [investigated] and he was asked if he could give any information upun [upon] the subject Mr. Cheshire then made a statement, the particulars of which Mr Philips took down, and Mr. Cheshire said they were correct In that statement Mr. Cheshire said, IT went to Mr. Palmer's house about ha'f-past eight o'clock in the morning of the 5th December with his letters. I found him iv bed. Mr. Palmer said to me, Weli, [Well] have you seen or heard anything I told him that I had, but that it would be wrong of me to tell him. He said, 'What have you heard f and I told bim [bi] that I had seen a letter, and that they had fonnd [found] no poison, He said he knew they would not, and that he was as innocent as au baby. T saw Mr. Palmer on the Sunday evening pre- [previously] viously [obviously] to the 5th December last; he cane to the post-office for a packet of envelopes, and he then said to me, 'If you hear or see let me know.' It was then well known in Rugeley contents of the stomach of the deceased Mr. Cook had beeu [been] sent to London for examina- [examine- examination] tion [ion] by Dr. Taylor, and 1 thought Mr. Palmer'sobservations [Palmer'observations] might refer tothe [tithe] correspondence between Dr.Taylorand [Dr.Tailoring] Mr. Garduer, [Gardener] the solicitor. I said 'I dare not opeu [open] anything.' He evolly [evil] replied, Oh don't let me persuade you to do any- [anything] thing toinjure [to injure] yourself.' That wasa l [was l] the conversation that took place, and Mr. Palmer then left. Ou Monday mo ninz, [mo nine] the 38rd December, I went to Mr. house between eight and nive [nice] o'clock with his letters, and he asked me if I had 'heard anything fresh.' I told bim [bi] I had not. He was tn bed, and he said he wasvery [severe] ill. Idid [Did] not see him ayain [again] till the morning of Wednesday, the 5th, when the conversa- [conversation- conversation] tion [ion] took place Ihave [Have] already stated. On opening the Lon- [London] don letter bag that morning I found a letter addressed to Mr. Gardner, the envelope of which was open, and ny attention was particularly drawu [draw] to it by observing on the enclusure [enclosure] the words cause of death.' T took the enclosure from the envelope, cast my eye over it, and the siguature [signature] of Dr. 'Taylor struck ny attention. I returned the enclosure to the envelope, wetted the gum, aud [and] secured it, and put the letter into the Hednesto d [Honest d] box, into which Mr. Gardner's letters are put. to Mr. Palmer hat I do not recollect naming prussie [Prussia] acid, The examination was then adjourned to allow of the coroner being summoned to attend and give evidence, as all applica'ions [applicant'ions] to him to that effect had failed to bring him before the bench. ' 'The [the] magistrates committed the accused for trial at the next Stafford assizes, but consented to take bail, himself in 100, and two sureties in 50 each, for his appearance.

[Tweedale] The nuptials were celebrated by the Dean of Worcester, uncle of the bridegroowm, [bridegroom] in the presence of a distingnished [distinguished] circle of the nobility. At the conclusion a grand dejewner [Jenner] was given by her Grace the Duchess of Wellington, at Apsley [Aspley] House. A Leap IN THE DarRK.-On [Dark.-On] Sunday, on the North Kent Railway, a woman, who was iu charge of police officers, made her escape out of the carriage while the train was proceeding at the rate of 20 miles an hour through the tunnel, which is 2 miles in length. It was supposed that she escaped when they were in total darkness; she must have contrived to open the door, aud [and] thus let herself out without being felt, as sbe [be] was not missed until the train arrived in the light. Every one concluded that she was killed, aud [and] the Mr. William Price, imme- [Mme- immediately] diately [lately] proceeded into the tunnel with an engine to find the body, but tv his surprise, on the engine coming up to the opening of the tunnel, midway between Higham and Strood, he found the woman endeavouring to make her escape by climbing up the cliff, which is upwards of 60 feet high and almost ;-erpendicular. [identical] Sie [Sir] was recaptured. She is a well-known character, uamed [named] Susannah Kates, [Takes] and is 50 vears [ears] of age. ROBBING THE BANK OF FRANCE.-The [FRANCE.-the] cashier of the Bank of France. on making up his accounts for the day on the 30th ult. missed 172 notes of 1,000 franes [frames] each, which had been brouzht [brought] to him in the course of the day, and which, after counting, be had placed with other piles of notes ona [on] shelf near him. Search was made everywhere, but without result, and information was immediately given to the police. From the enquiries which they made, their suspicions pointed to one of the clerks in the office, and orders were given that he should be strictly watched. New Year's Day beiug [being] a holliday [Holliday] at the bank, the man left Paris in the evening of the 31st [st] ult. to visit his friends in a village in Picardy, [Pickard] and the chief of the service de surete [sure] and some active ageuts [Agents] followed him there. Early the next morning they learnt that he had gone into a wood on a pretext of shooting, and they went towards the wood, They did not hear any report of firearms, and after a while the man returned without any game. This naturally increased the suspicions against him. In the evening of the Ist [Its] he came back to Paris, the police still accompanying him, and the following days they watched im [in] so closely and with such skill, that they saw all he did, and almost heard all he said. At last it was deemed advisable to arrest him, but he energetically denied his guilt, and on his lodgings being searched nothing calculated to inculpate him could be discovered. Tie chef de surete [sure] accordingly determined on going down to Picardy [Pickard] to examine the wood in which the man had been; but, though he inspected every tree he could find no marks on any one. and though he caused the earth to be dug up wherever it appeared to have been recently moved, he dis- [discovered] covered nothing. The day before yesterday he datermined [determined] to try the effect which the sudden revelation that he had been constantly followed, frum [from] the very moment of dis- [discovering] covering the robbery, would produce on the man; and he began by stating that on the 3lst [last] of December he had followed him to the wood in question. The man started, and when the chef de surete [sure] proceeded to relate to him all that he had done on the following days, hour by hour, he seemed astounded. At last he confessed that he was the thief, and be stated that he had buried the notes beneath a particular tree in the wood in question. In consequence, the chef again visited the wood, and found the notes at the place mentioned.

GENERAL FEELING IN -A correspondent writing from Hulion [Hulton] Monday night, says A gentleman of long residence in Russia arrived here on Saturday last from St. Petersburg, which place he left on the 12th December. From his own observation aud [and] constant intercourse with the Russians, it is certain that (with the exception of naval and military officers aud [and] government officials) the masses of the people are heartily sick of the war, and ery [very] out, as loudly as they dare, 'fur peace at any price.' The same gentleman, on being asked if the natives of the interior volunteered into the aryay, [array] as has been represented, replied, that nothing could exceed the dejected and forlorn appear- [appearance] auce [ace] of the poor creatures who are brought into the city by carts from the interior. The militia of the empire is also stated to bea miserable apology for suldiers, [soldiers] being com- [composed] posed of men who evidently dislike the task impused [imposed] on them.-Daily News. New AMBULANCE CaRRiaGe,-Mr, [Carriage,-Mr] Tufnell, [Tunnel] professor of military surgery, Dublin, submitted on Saturday morning, to the inspectiun [inspection] of Lord Panmure, aud [and] Lurd [Lord] Hardinge, [Harding] at the Horse Guards, a new ambulance carriage, for the use of the ariny [rainy] in the Crimea, in the ensuing cam- [campaign] paign. [pain] The invention is of the most simple characté, [character] yet the conveyance is replete with every article necessary for the proper care and attentiou [attention] to the wants of the sick and wounded soldier in the field. The carriage is a modifica- [modified- modification] fen of the Irish jaunting car. It will carry three soldiers ng down, or one dying and six sitting, ur, if necessary, with the ends of the seats turned down, it will accoimo- [com- accommodate] date ten sitting. The middle compartment can also be used as a stretcher; and when the wounded solilier [soldier] is lifted from the conveyance, the irons or handles are turned down, and it becomes at once a kind of bed, on which the surgeon can operate, if necessary, on the sufferer, with ut his being removed. A tent can also be thrown over the top, to shelter the soldiers from the weather. In the well between the wheels provision is made for the requirements of the field. There is a splint case containing splints, bandages, &c. necessary for fractures, a case of instrumenis, [instruments] a store case, with canisters of tea, sugur, [sugar] arrow root, &c. ; blankets, to cover four men, canteen, washing materials, aud [and] apparatns, [apparatus] medicine chest, &c. wel [well] stored; and so well arranged are these articles, that many of them fir into one another, by which much space is saved, and what remains turned to valuable account. His Royal Highness the Duke of Camb.idge, [Came.edge] who inspected the carriage on Friday, highly approved of it, as did Lord Panmure and Lord inge, on Saturday moruing.

[Crimea.-Su] A CoL LieRY [Co Livery] Witd [With] WaTER.-GaTESHEAD.- [Water.-Gateshead.- Gateshead] One of those occurrences which sometimes happen in the colliery districts of Northumberland and Durham, took place last week in a pit belonging to Messrs. Palmer and Co., known as the Shipcote [Ship cote] colliery, adjoining the Sunderland turnpike-road, abou [about a mile from Gateshead. The shait [shaft] had ouly [only] beeu [been] sunk a few mouths, and the coal was worked principally for land sale. 'The [the] drifts, it appears, had been pushed too rear to an old working at the Felling, where there was a considerable lodgment [judgment] of water, and the being insufficient, from the strata being of a very porous character, the water rushed through into the workiugs [working] of the new mine, and in ashort [short] time filled them, asceuding [ascending] some feet up the shaft. The work- [workmen] men were employed at the time, but they had sufficient opportunity to escape, and it is satisfactory to learn that no lives have been lost. As svon [son] as the flow of water had subsided efforts were made to remedy the injury and to draw off the water, for which purpose recourse was had to the workings of the Friars Guvose [Gives] colliery, which are at a lower level nearer the Tyne, and by forming a drift into the Shipcote [Ship cote] workings the drainage was satisfactorily effected, aud [and] then it was ascertained that the workings had sustained comparatively little damage, so that with a slight repair operations might be resumed in a day or two, On 'Tuesday night, however, while some men were j exploring the workings, an explosion of gas suddenly took piace, [place] it having gathered since the inundation. Three men were burnt, but are expected to recuver. [recover] The Fel- [Fe- Felling] ling pit was the sceue [see] of a serious disaster many years azo, when several lives were lost, and it 'hasal [nasal] ways been subject to the influx of water. A pit at Percy Main was cum- [completely] 'pletely [lately] tilled with water some time ayo, [yo] and has ever since been laid in, as all attempts to overcome the influx and drain the mine, though carried on at great expense, have been bithertv [hitherto] ineffectual. FataL [Fatal] ACcIDENT.-On [Accident.-On] Wednesday week an inquest was held at Reading on the body of Wim. [Win] Goulder, aged 70, who met with his death under sumewiat [somewhat] singular circumstances. The deceased was in the employ of Mr. Heningham, [Birmingham] fell- [fell monger] monger, at Caversham, and on Saturday he went to Marlow with a horse and cart, on his master's business, On his way he toox [too] up two men, who were on their way to Bath.

Palmor, [Palmer] M.P. Goulder, unable to see the road; allowed the horse to be uncontrolled, and the result was that it drove the cart up agaiust [against] a large stone projecting from one of the sides uf [of] the railway bridge The owing to the slow pace at which the animal was going, only slightly shook the men in tie cart, and caused Goulder tu drop his whip. He said he must get down for it, and in alighting he stepped on the parapet of the bridge; think- [thinking] ing it was the step of the cart; he took another leap, and then the unfurtunate [unfortunate] man fell on the line of railway, a dis- [distance] tance [lance] of full 40 feet from the parapet.

'The [the] times, which are a s;ecial [s;special] privilege, religiously guarded by the omnibus fraternity, and considered to be of equal value with the vehicles, &c., were also made over as part of the bargain. A similar transfer was executed yesterday by Mr. Leonard Willing, the oldest omnibus proprietor in London, who, with others, conveyed to the same parties the Stoke Newington and Kingsland, and Dalston liue, [line] comprising 22 omuibuses, [omnibuses] 200 horses, and 70 employes, [employed] The French company's intended system of correspun- [correspond- correspondence] denée [dene (by which a person getting into an omnibus in any part of London may be conveyed at one charge to any puint [point] of destination, by the mutual exchange of passengers) does not come into action until, their new carriages are built, aud [and] their purchases of the other London times ara completed.

Ten thieves forcibly entered the premises during the absence of Mrs. Butterworth at the neigh- [neighbouring] bouring [boring] church; and after ransacking the house, they decamped with two small boxes containing a 5 note, 2 9s. in gold and silver, three gold rings, two pair of ear-rings, two brooches, and a bank book, They were probably disturbed in their depredations, as the communivn [communion] plats of St. Thomas's Church, which was in a desk belonging to Mr. Bowman, the curate, who had apartments in the house, was left behind, although the desk had been forced open and the contents disturbed. A small crowbar and lantern were fuund [found] upon the premises. On Monday morning the two boxes were found in Crowther's Field, and amongst the papers were found the missing 5 note and the bank book. The police are on the alert, but at preseat [present] no clue to the thieves has been obtained. SHOCKING OCCURRENCE aT Norwicu.-Mr. [Norwich.-Mr] Edwin Webster Corsbie, [Corrie] a young man respectably connected, and a clerk in the office of Messrs. Winter and Son, solicitors, of Norwich, met his death on Friday morning under very ainful [painful] circumstances. The deceased entered the office of Bis employers at about half-past nine o'clock, and his b other Mr. Samuel Webster Cursbie, [Course] asked him how he was, as he had been suffering from erysipelas. He replied that he was better, and went to the fire to warm his hands, The elder brother went on writing, and almust [almost] imme- [Mme- immediately] diately [lately] afterwards was alarmed by the report of a pistol. Turning round, he saw that tbe [the] young man had fallen down and that he was horribly mutilated about the mouth. Mr. J. G. Johnson, the mayor of the city, was sent for, and came as soon as possible, but he was unable to render any surgical assistance to the unfortunate young man, who had died immediately. Mr. Wilde, coroner for Norwich, held an inquest on the body of the deceased in the course of the morning, and appeared from the evidence that on Sunday evening he borrowed a pistol from a young man named Jarvis, with whom he was on friendly terms, and that a day or two since ke told him that he had vot [not] some powder for it A lad employed by Messrs. Winter, as errand boy, stated that on Thursday the deceased showed him the pistol, loaded near to the muzz'e. and putting ic to his muuth, [mouth] said that would be the way to blow his brains out, As it appeared, however, that the deccased [deceased] bad not exhibited any unusual depression of spirits, in reference to the erysipelas from which he had been sutfer- [suffer- suffering] ing, the jury returned a verdict to the effect that he shot himself, but whether de-ignedly [de-urgently] or accidentally there was no evidence to show.- [show] Times. SINGULAR SCENE aT AMBLESIDE.-The [AMBLESIDE.-the] new church at Ambleside has recently been warmed, by means of fiucs [fix] leading from a coke fire. Owing to some imperfection in the flues a deleterious gas issued into the body of the church during the morning service on Sunday weck, [week] Young children, being nearest the floor, were first affected, and about twenty of them followed one another out before the adults took the alarm. At about tne [te] middle of the sermon the congregation rose in a body and went out, to the apparent astonishment of the preacher, who, in his elevated pulpit was unaware of the miszhicf. [Muscovy] He was left entirely alone in the church; and it is the opinion of the medical men that if the congrezatiou [congregation] had staid a quarter of an hour longer, no one would have been able to help himself or his neighbour, and many, or all, must have perished. The scene in the churchyard was singular fur a day in January; numbers of persons were laid on the grass, fainting, convulsed, and moaning. None altogether escaped injury, In the lane leading from the church to the village, persons dropped as they walked, and lay quivering, or as if cead. [read] Some who believed themselves able to reach their homes fell at a short distance from their own doors, and one at least was actually unable to reach home till the next day. Fortunately one of the surgeons of the place, on his way to church, was cailed [called] toa [to] patient, and thereby left in a condi- [condition- condition] tion [ion] to give prompt assistance. During the afternoon the druzgist's [druggist's] shop was crow Jed with applicants for stimulant medicines-debility and headache prostrating the pupula- [popular- population] tion [ion] like a plague. None of the cases have terminated fatally but the danger to several must have been immi- [mimic- imminent] nent.

[was tried] Repeated warn- [warnings] ings had been givon [given] to the authorities for weeks past, by the ringers and others who had suffered from the fumes of the coke, but no notice was taken, and on Sunday last the doors were shut, and kept shut, by the churchwardens, whose practice is to go tu the inns during prayers, to see whether any drinking is going forward, and who will allow no admission of air during their absence, or on their return. By the latest accounts, some of the invalids were rather worse than better, while others had nearly recovered. A Drunken Man Buryep [Bur yep] To twenty minutes past two on Sunday morning, as Pulice- [Police- Puliceconstable] constable Evan Mayo was passing a cellar in Hauover-street, [Hanover-street] Manchester, occupied by John Karl, bricklayer's labourer, he saw smoke issuing from it and, on enteriny, [entering] he found a carpet on fire and Earl himself on the floor with his clothes smouldering, whilst Earl's wife was on the bed, with a child in her arms, screaming, Earl was taken to the Royal Infir- [Infirm- Infirmary] mary, [may] where he died from his burns and the inquest was held on Monday by Mr. Hertord.-Earl's [Heated.-Earl's] wife said We went to the market tozether [together] about half-past ten o'elock [o'lock] on night.

THE Present TO Miss NIGHTINGALE.-The [NIGHTINGALE.-the] design of the jewel is admirable, and the effect no less bril- [bail- brilliant] Tiant [Tian] than chaste It is characteristic and emblematical, being formed of a St. Ge rge's [re's] Cross in ruby red enamel on a white field, representing England. Tois [Tos] is encircled by a black band, typifying the office of charity, on which is inscribe'l a golden legend, Blessed are the merciful, of course, in allusion to the merit of Miss Floreuce [Florence] Nightin- [Night- Nightingale] gile, [Giles] the recipient. The royal donor is expressed by the letters V.R., surmounted by a crown in diamonds, impressed upon the centre of the St. George's Cross, trom [from] which also rays of gold emauating [emanating] upon the field of white enamel are supposed to represent the glory of Eugland. [England] Wide-spreading branches of palm, in bright examel, [example] tipped with gold, form a framework for the shield, their stems at the bottom being banded with a riband [band] of biue [blue] enamel (the colour of the ricand [rand] for the Crimean medal), on which, in golden letters, is inscribed Crimea. At the top of the shield, between the palm branches, and connecting the whole, three brilliant stars of diamunds [diamonds] illustrate the idea of the light of Heaven shed upon the labours of Mercy, Peace and Charity, in connection with the glory of a nation, On the back of this reyai [repair] jewel is an inscription on a golden tablet, written by her Majesty, which stamps upon it a value inappreciable, as recording it to be a gift and testimonial in memory of services rendered to her brave army by Miss Nightingale. The jewel is about three inches in depth by twa [tea] and a half in width. It is to be worn, not as a brooch or ornament, but rather as the badge of an order, the must precious from the manuer [manner] of its con- [conferring] ferring-the [the] most singular in the merit of its receiver-tha [receiver-that] most illustrious in hunour [honour] tbat [that] has yet issued frum [from] the fuuntain [fountain] of all honours-the Crown of England.

FRENCH PREPARATION FOR THE BaLtic.-The [Baltic.-the] nava [naval] autlforities [authorities] of Cherbourg have been ordered to arm ttiree [tree] screw liners and three sailing frigates, which are to ready for the opening of the campaign in the Baltic in April next. These three ships are the Arcole, [Argyle] 90 guns, and 900-horse power, the armament of which is nearly com- [completed] pleted [plated] the Donauwerth, [Tamworth] 90 guns, which is to be converte [convert] into a screw ship, and is already undergoing that trans- [transformation] formation, althouzh [although] she only arrived from the Mediter- [Merited- Mediterranean] ranean [crane] 12 days ago and the St. Lovis, [Louis] 90 guns, at Brest on the 25th of April last, which is at present on her way from 'Toulon. Independently of these three ships, which are to be fitted out with all possible expedition, Cherbourg is to arm the war screw transport Yonne, [Anyone] ot 1,200 tons, the vessels of the Iceland station, and the five bumb-vessels [bum-vessels] and the 12 steam gunboats. which have returned from the last campaign in the Baltic, and form part of the formidable expedition which is to operate 'in that sea next spring. New anpd [and] OLD Use oF Concretre.-Concrete [Concrete.-Concrete] (said Professor Cockerell) [Cockerel] is a novelty characteristic of the nine- [nineteenth] teenth [teeth] century, or rather a resuscitation of ancient practice, as he had long azo shown by quoting Philibert [Hibbert] (le 'Orme; but in the bridge of Alma, raised within these eight months at Paris, concrete had taken a new and admirable develope- [develop- development] ment, [men] where three arches of about 140 feet. span had been cast on the centreing, [entering] forming oné [on] vast stone from pier to pier. The only voussoirs used were in the face of the arches. A peculiar cement and hard fragmented stone had effected this with vast economy of cost and time, and promised well. The so-called Temple of Peace at Rome was ceiled [veiled] and vaulted with asimilar concrete. The coffering was previously mouided [moulded] in all their details upon the centreing, [entering] and then covered with grosser concrete, so that on removal of the centreing [entering] all was finished.

Unfortunately, it was past eleven o'clock before they were able to claim admittance at the door of an inn, where they were refused shelter, and on application at other houses of so-called entertainment these unprofitable cus- [us- customers] tomers [times] were nut heard. In fact, in Carnoustie the law is so rigorously observed that it was three hours before these poor, half-drowned, perishing strangers received that shelter they thought they had a right to expect in a Christian land. At last, it appears, they fell into the hands of one who considered them to be both 'bona fide traveliers [travellers] and bora [Boar] fide fellow-creatures ;' anil, [ail] revardless [restless] ot the law, took them in and made them as comfortable as his circumstances would allow.- [allow] North British Duily [Daily] Mail. ROBBERY AND OUTRAGE AT SHEFFIELD.-One of the most serious outrages, accompanied by rubbery, which has ocenrred [ensured] in Shetfield [Sheffield] for some time past, was perpetrated on Friday evening last upon traveller, named George Silk, residing at 28, Edgerton street. Silk wenton [Newton] business to the Franklin Hotel, Washineton-road, [Washington-road] and left there about ten o'clock in the evening for Sanderson's beer- [beer house] house, in Younge-street, where, on going to the Franklin Hotel, he had left a young friend who lives at his house. For the sake of saving a few yards in the distance he turned down a narrow dark thoroughfare known as Club-gardens- [gardens walk] walk. He met the watchman near the top, and shortly afterwarcs [afterwards] passed three men, who were loitering along the ath. [at] Directly after passing the men he received a blow on the heai [hear] from behind, which felled him senseless to the ground. While in this state he was robbed of 50 in gold, and some few articles of trifling value. Not content with laying the man senseless on the ground and depriving him of his money, the robbers injured him considerably about the neck by throttling him, and inflicted upon him two severe stabs, aparently [apparently] with a penknife-one about two inches below the lett [let] shoulderblade, [shoulder blade] and the other on the right side of the abdumen [abdomen] Silk recovered his con- [consciousness] seiousness [seriousness] in a short time, and with great diiliculty [difficulty] reached Sanderson's beerhouse. [beer house] which is but from 200 to 300 yards from the place where he was knocked down. On entering the beerhouse [beer house] he sank exhausted into a chair and was conveyed home inacab. [cabin] Mr. James Gregory, surgeon, was immediately sent for. The wounds, though deep, were found not to have penetrated any vital part. The man, however, isin [sin] a very dangerous state. The watchman who had first met Silk saw nothing of the tobbers, [robbers] and they escaped without attracting the attention of any one in the neighbourhood, though there is a beer- [beer house] house within a few yards of the place where the outrage .Was committed. SINGULAR House RoBBERY, [Robbery] WITH VIOLENCE.-At the Manchester New Bailey, on Tuesday, Ann Coulter and Ann Coulter, mother and daughter, were brought up on the charge of committing a robbery at the house of Mr. John Doughty, commercial traveller, 8, Horsley-street, Chorlton-road, Manchester, at an early hour on Monday morning. Mrs. Dougtty [Doughty] stated that on Sunday night, her husband being from home, the only persons who slept in the house were herself and her servant, Ann Coulter, the younger. About a quarter before two on Monday morn- [morning] ing, she (Mrs. Doughty) was awoke by something pressing against her thruat, [that] and she then saw a slizht [slight] figure, dressed in mule attire, standing beside the bed, and heard a stifled effeminate voice saying, Your money, your money, I want your money. She thouzht [thought] at the time that the voice was that of Ann Coulter, her mother. She felt satisfied her disturber was not a man. With some difficulty Mrs. Doughty got to the wall of her apartinent, [Argentine] at which she knocked to alarm her neighbours, calling out at the same time. Ann Coulter, the girl, then came into the room with her hands tied behind her, and a clumsy imitation of a gag in her mouth, and said that her hands had been tied and her month gagged by two men. The yag [ag] simply consisted of a piece of lath which was placed in the girls mouth, and secured there by means of two pieces of braid which tied at the back of the herd. 'This braid had been tied round a parcel which Mrs. Doughty had received a few days pre- [previously] viously, [obviously] and the gag could not in the least degree prevent the girl from using her voice. The person who had dis- [disturbed] turbed [turned] Mrs. Doughty made off, and the girl went down Stairs and ont of the She soon returned, bringing a dress of Mrs. Doughty with her, which she had found lying outside, and two of Mr. Doughty's coats, in the , cles [close] were found that had been stolen from the house; the pocket of the lady's dress had contained 6 9s. 6d., but this had gone. Ann Coulter, the girl, was aware that Mrs. Doughty had received xome [some] money on Saturday.-Mrs. Jane Harding, who resides next door to Mrs. Doughty, said that a little after eleven on Sunday night, she saw a female, similar to the elder prisoner, loitering about Mrs. Doughty's door, and she saw a light in Mrs. Doughty's kitchen as late as twelve o'clock whereas, as we stated yesterday, Mrs. Doughty went to bed at nine o'clock on that night, telling her servant there was no necessity for her to stay up.-In the opinion of the mayistrate [magistrate] there was not yet sufficient evidence to commit upon, and the prisoners were remanded to Friday.

The demand for India is dull, but there ave still some fair purchases for the talian [Italian] states, Yarns for bome [some] facturing [manufacturing] purposes were easier, and buyers represent that they are generally about 4d. per lb. lower. Lu cloth but 4 moderate business has been etfected, [effected] iu some deseriptions [descriptions] the market being very dull. There has been a rather active demand for some days past for longeloths [lengths] and T cloths, and a large business has been done at full prices.

The whole supply of wheat was only 7,810, abont [about] 2,000 being from the Danish isles. 'he quantity from Essex end Kent this morving [morning] was moderate, but the quality was improved, and dry samples found a more ready ; placement at an advance of 2s per quarter but the market scarcely closed so briskly as it begau. [began] But little was doing in foreign, which was held at full prices. 'There were no arrivals of foreign flour; bat 15,559 sacks were reported from the country. Norfolks [Norfolk] found a ready sale at 23 per sack improvement, and some sellers declined these rates, American suld [sold] at ls more money. The barley supply was 11,071 quarters, including a small parcel from Denmark, The tone of the trade was better, at fully Is advance; the sale, however, was not very free. Malt found no enhance- [enhancement] ment [men] of value, and was difficult to quit. A very large supply of foreign oats arrived, viz., 37,923 quarters. There were also 7,520 quarters more, nearly all Enylish [English] total, 45,448 quarters. 'This arrival checked the previous upward tendency of prices but there was a consumptive demand for all good corn at the previous rates. GENERAL StaT&é [State&é] OF THE HOME TRaDe.-The [Trade.-the] accounts of the manufacturing trade throughout the kingdom during the past week are yeverally [several] satisfactory, although the high rates of discount and the possibility of a further advance cause vigilance and caution to be exercised in every quarter. At Manchester there has been a fair extent of business at prives [prices] which, looking at the flatness of the Liverpool cotton-market, may be considered firm. The Birmingham report describes an influx of additional orders for iron, consequent upon the definitive adjustment of the rates for the next quarter. In the general trades of the place there has been no particular alteration. The demand for agricultural implements continues active. At Notting- [Nottingham] bam [ba] the ome [one] spring trade in hosiery has opened well, and with regard to the lace trade, although there is as yet no animation, confidence prevails from the lowness of stocks. In the woollen districts there has been a good general demand, and in the Irish linen markets, owing to the con- [continuance] tinuance [Finance] of a sound and cautious bueinoss [business] throughuut [through] 1854, and the consequent fact of the existing stocks being under ab average, great steadiness is observable.
