8 THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1850. THE MELTHAM ASSOCIATION FOR IMPROVING THE BREED OF PIGS. The first show of this association was held on Saturday last, in Bray's Croft, at the Back of the Rose and Crown eltham. [Meltham] During the two or three days previous ether had been bleak and wintry, but the morring [morning] broke with a clear sky, a bright sun, and a fine sharp bracing atmosphere, and the beautiful valley and wood- [woodland] land scenery of the neighbourhood presented one of the most charming landscapes with which this district abounds. From an early hour in the morning the good people of Meltham were all life and activity, and wore their happiest and merriest smiles for the occasion. anticipations as to the quality of the show had been raised considerably from a knowledge of the very superior stock bred and raised in this neighbourhood, but we were somewhat surprised on entering the show ground to find our anticipations more than realised. Allowing for the circumstance that the association dates an existence of only some two saunthe, [saith] its first Poms acknowledgment may be welcomed as pre ; successful, whodior [widow] it is as te uantity. [quantity] In the department of pigs oon [on] i enon [non] it world have been difficult to have gathered together finer specimens of whose points displayed greater symmetry, whose act afforded higher proofs of quality, or whose gene appearance would have presented greater size pnd [and] weight. There were but one or two entries out that could be classified as coarse inferior pigs. The store pig (only 10 months old) shown by John Crow- [Crowther] ther, [the] of Meltham Mills, was pronounced one of the finest animals which this season has produced, and was a subject of general admiration. Two beautiful little animals, only five months old, entered by Uriah Wood- [Woodhead] head, and one of the same age by Joseph Preston, were shown in the first class, and generally noticed. The whole of the entries in the second class were very superior, and were of so nearly equal merit as to require the nicest discrimination on the part of the judges; and the animals shown by James Whiteley and Joseph Mellor were very much admired. We regret to state that a beautiful pig entered by Joseph Butterworth, of Golcar Hill, unfortunately had its leg broken in being conveyed to the show, and was in consequence not shown. In class four the entries of Joseph Quarmby and Jonas Hirst were deserving of special notice. Amongst the honorary exhibitors there were some very superior pigs, and a very small boar from the store of John Mallinson, Esq., and a fine litter shown by Messrs. John and Edwin Eastwood, were objects of special encomiums. On the whole, if this first show of the Meltham Association for Encouraging the Labouring- [Labouring classes] classes to Keep and Feed Good-bred Pigs, is to be accepted as an indication of what may be done, it promises to take a leading position amongst the exhibitions of this district, and we heartily wish them success. The onerous duties of judge devolved upon John Dougill, Esq., Thorpe House, Almondbury, and Mr. T. J. Wigney, [Wine] Huddersfield, and were discharged in a manner which received the general satisfaction of the exhibitors. We take this opportunity of acknowledging our obli- [able- obligations] gations [nations] to Mr. Joshua Eastwood, and the other officials, for kindly placing the returns and other particulars at 9 ur LIST OF PRIZES.

THE DINNER. In the course of the evening a small party of the gentry of the neighbourhood sat down to an excellent dinner, provided with great liberality and taste at the Rose and Crown, by the worthy host Mr. Bray. Shortly after the removal of the cloth, John Mallinson, Esq., who had just returned from London, entered the room, and was immediately inducted as chairman, Mr. Joshua Eastwood occupying the vice-chair. After the usual loyal toasts of The Queen and The Royal Family, the CHarrMaN [Chairman] gave Success to the Meltham Associa- [Social- Association] tion [ion] for Promoting and Encouraging the Labouring- [Labouring classes] classes to Keep and Feed Good-bred Pigs. The Vick-CHairMaN [Vick-Chairman] in responding, acknowledged the compliment thus paid to the originators of the associa- [social- association] tion, [ion] and in the course of his observations alluded to the appearance of a paragraph in one of the local papers, headed A Meltham Man's First Ideas of a Railway Train, as likely to convey an erroneous impression of the state of education in their village and, therefore, took that opportunity of pronouncing it a pure fiction, taken from a paragraph in the Halifax Guardian of the pre- [previous] vious [pious] year. (Hear.) He was proud to say that so far from Meltham being guilty of so lamentable a degree of ignorance, it stood forth as one of the most honest, industrious villages in the district. There was not a Single instance, not even within the memory of that celebrated individual, the oldest inhabitant, although there were upwards of four thousand inhabitants, where a resident Meltham man, bred and born, had been con- [convicted] victed [convicted] of theft. (Hear.) But this was not all, their loyalty, when all around them was confusion and dis- [disturbance] turbance [disturbance] during the period of the plug drawing riots, when a lawless mob from Lancashire poured through the village like a flood, they stood firm and steadfast to the principles of order, and refused to associate them- [themselves] selves with this band of depredators. (Hear, hear.) And at a later time, when continental thrones were crumbling in the dust, and time-honoured constitutions were being scattered to the winds-when in their own country the present President of France stood in the streets of London as a special constable-when murder was rife in Ashton-when Bradford was in a state of riot and anarchy, and even Huddersfield heaving with the throes of dissatisfaction-Meltham remained calm and in peace, and not a single extra constable was needed. (Hear, hear.) The inhabitants of Meltham Were not only honest and loyal, but prudent-for they not had a highway or poors' [poor] rate since 1848; and it had been acknowledged in the Guardians' room that the expenses of the township of Meltham were lighter than any other in the union. (Hear, hear.) Now, he did think that under such circumstances the labouring classes of the village were deserving of hearty support. (Hear.) He would sit down by giving them The health of the Judges, which was received with applause. Mr. Rospert [Respect] iron founder, Marsden, said he had been requested to give The Successful Candidates, and in doing so he would make one or two observations. Mr. Eastwood had certainly made some very excellent comments respecting the honesty, prudence, and loyalty of Meltham, and he was sure the labouring classes of Meltham deserved credit for the very superior show of pigs which he had that day witnessed. But he thought there were other causes for such results. He knew politics were a forbidden subject on such occasions, but e could not forbear submitting that one principal reason why they found working men possessing and exhibiting fine fat pigs, would be found in the fact that had now cheap corn. (Hear.) Seven years ago the working men had no fat pigs-they scarcely knew what they were; but now, corn being cheap, there was plenty of work, with good wages, and they could not only afford to keep a pig but fatten it with cheap corn. (Hear, hear, and laughter.) Mr. JosrrH [Joseph] Taytor, [Taylor] Meltham, returned thanks for the successful candidates. Brooke, jun. Esq., Meltham Mills, said he had n called upon to give them a toast, which was perhaps woe 80 pleasing a one as that they had just heard; it it oni [on] Unsuccessful Candidates,'-at the same time that the be to even those exhibitors to find he had no dene pigs so much superior to their own; and year we will or would be instigated to say, Next punctate [puncta] Care we are not so far behind. The tes [te] this year must be careful, or they ow their less fortunate friends (Hear.) He understood the judges in awarding the prizes, shown, and he thought such a of the Digs tifying [testifying] both to the promoters of the et & to the exhibitors, (Hear) For his own pot be tay [ta] t never kept a pig, and, in fact, knew very little about them, but he thought he could tell a pig from a horse. (Laughter.) The formation of this society had given a greater scale. The reason why he had joined the society was to benefit the working classes, as he thought it was the duty of all who were placed in a higher position to assist those who had been less fortunate. (Hear, hear.) The toast was drunk with three times three, and ack- [ac- acknowledged] nowledged [knowledge] by Mr. Jamzs [James] EaknsHAW, [Earnshaw] one of the unsuc- [nsc- unsuccessful] ful [full] candidates. . The Vicr-CHAIRMAN, [Vicar-CHAIRMAN] in giving them The President of the Association, regretted that that gentleman had been prevented from joining them during the early part of the day, having been unavoidably detained in London. He would avail himself of that opportunity to state the reasons why the society had not admitted poultry into the exhibition. The association was established purel [pure] for the benefit of the working classes, and it was well- [Wilkinson] known that whenever poultry were kept by persons the keeping of poultry by working-men, unless the owners had ground for them to walk upon, and as such was not the case in Meltham they had determined to avoid so fruitful a source of bickering. (Hear, hear.) The toast was drunk with three times three. The CHarrMan [Chairman] returned thanks for the handsome manner they had drunk his health. It had been a very great annoyance to be prevented from joining them at the show, but he had been detained by business which he could not possibly avoid. (Hear, hear.) He was exceedingly happy to hear that the show had been so excellent, and nothing he was sure would afford him greater pleasure than to render every assistance in his power, to enable the working classes to have good stock, and he would most readily place within their means good breeding stock for the purpose. (Hear, hear.) From what he had seen a fortnight previous he was satisfied that Meltham would in a few years be second to no society in the district. He would do everything in his power to promote the interests of the association. (Hear, hear.) He would give them The health of the Vice-President, which was received with three-times- [times three] three. The responded, and gave The Visitors who had honoured them with their company. Mr. MELLOR, of Slaithwaite, returned thanks in an eloquent speech, and during the course of his remarks said he had never seen a finer show of pigs. He had once been at a show at Wakefield, where the animals were so fat and obese that he could not for one moment have fancied eating them as bacon; whilst these, on the contrary, looked so nice and clean as to almost make one covetous of their possession. (Laughter.) They had shown a noble example to the neighbouring villages of Slaithwaite, Marsden, Lingards, and others, who he trusted would be incited to action by so worthy an ex- [example] ample. (Hear, hear.) He fully concurred in what Mr. Taylor had remarked, and was satisfied that the grand secret of it was cheap corn. In conclusion he thought the kindness and generous efforts of the gentlemen in the locality ought to meet, and he had no doubt would meet, with a worthy response from the labouring classes, and thus establish a feeling of reciprocal sympathy between the two. (Hear, hear.) CHARLES BROOKE, jun., Esq., in a very complimentary speech, gave The Secretary of the Association, Mr. Jos. Taylor, which was duly acknowledged, and the VIcE- [Vice- Watchman] CHarIRMAN [Chairman] then gave The Welfare and Prosperity of the Labouring Classes, which was responded to with three- [three times] times-three, [three] and afterwards The Treasurer, which was received with cheers. During the remainder of the evening, The Ladies (responded to by CHaRLEs [Charles] BRookE, [Brook] jun., Esq.); The Huddersfield Association for Improving the Breeds of Pigs and Poultry, and The Press, were given, and drunk with honours, after which the company broke up about nine o'clock. Ree [Ere] ORIGINAL ESSAYS. NO. I. DEATH OF SIR ROBERT PEEL. On Saturday, June 29th, [the] 1850, as Sir Robert Peel was riding up Constitution-hill his horse stumbled and fell, when Sir Robert was thrown upon his face with such violence as to cause his death on the following Tuesday. Sir Robert's untimely end has been regretted throughout the civilized world. The two most power- [powerful] ful [full] nations of Europe, long opposed in deadly warfare, have publicly united in deploring his loss. The Queen and her royal consort, with a majority of the peers and commons of England, manifested the deepest sympathy for the distinguished sufferer. This unparalled [unparalleled] anxiety was not confined to the upper ranks, it pervaded every class of society. The court yard of the right honourable gentleman's mansion was thronged throughout his ill- [illness] ness by sorrowing crowds deeply anxious for his recovery. Such an exhibition of feeling on the part of Englishmen, is unquestionably the noblest eulogium [Belgium] that could be pronounced over his memory-it was a touching and eloquent testimony that Sir Robert was dear to-the hearts of the people-that his existence was considered by them a subject of national importance- [importance that] that his popularity was as genuine as it was universal- [universal that] that his magnificent services were gratefully cherished in the hovel of the peasant and in the house of the tradesman, as well as in the palace of the sovereign. As the news of Sir Robert's decease spread through the land, a spontaneous feeling of bitter lamentation, unequalled since the demise of the Princess Charlotte, burst forth on every hand. Public meetings were instantly convened, and addresses of condolence were unanimously voted to Lady Peel. These expressions of heart-felt sympathy on her irreparable loss have been followed by more substantial proofs of the nation's regard. Several of the leading towns in the empire, including the great metrĂ©polis, [metropolis] have come forward with liberal subscriptions for the erection of statues in mar- [marble] ble, [be] bronze, or granite, to the memory of the patriot statesman. Huddersfield has generally taken the lead in ques- [questions] tions [tins] affecting the public weal, but in this important object a strange and unaccountable apathy pervades the great body of our merchants and traders. The sub- [subscriptions] scriptions [descriptions] for the Peel Monument in this town are un- [unworthy] worthy of the men for whose advantage Sir Robert sacrificed the ties of private friendship, and the posses- [possession] sion of supreme political power. In his humane and successful labours to increase the poor man's comforts he overthrew the most galling monopoly of ancient or modern time. Can the memory of sucha [such] patriot perish Should heathen obliquity or chilling ingratitude influ- [influenza- influence] ence [once] the conduct of my townsmen, on them be the dis- [disgrace] grace; the page of history will perpetuate Sir Robert's fame it will flourish in immortal greenness when the sod shall cover in oblivion the remains of those who have descended to the grave unwept, unhonoured, [honoured] and unsung.

HEREFORDSHIRE ELEcTIon.-The [Election.-The] High Sheriff of the county of Hereford has received the writ for the election of a successor to the late Mr. Bailey, and aprolnted [appointed] the 18th instant, for the election. Mr. Booker will, no doubt, be elected, the Free Trade party not having sufficient unanimity among them to select a candidate of their own principles. There is reason to believe, however, that a second candidate will be put in nomination, if only for the purpose of giving certain parties opportunity for ing speeches.

New Act TO AMEND DEFECTS IN LEaSES..- [Leases..- Leases] An act of Parliament was passed in the late session to amend an act of the previous year for granting relief against defects in leases made under power of ene Some peculiar cir- [circumstances] cumstances [cum stances] attended the passing of this statute. Last year an act was passed declaring that the acceptance of rent under an invalid lease should be deemed a confirmation of such lease. This provision when known startled the pro- [profession] fession, [session] and immediately another act was passed sxiapending [suspending] its operation until June, and in the mean time the present act was passed, by which it is provided that where there is a note in writing showing the intention to confirm an in- [invalid] valid lease the acceptance of rent shall be deemed a con- [confirmation] firmation. [formation] In cases of a reversioner, [revision] where he is able and willing to confirm a lease, his confirmation may be taken. LorD [Lord] CaRLISLE [Carlisle] AND HIS WIDE AWAKE. -During a recent tour in Scotland, Lord Carlisle, in company with the Hon. and Rev. F. R. and Lady Elizabeth Grey, pre- [presented] sented [scented] himself for admittance into the regalia room in Edinburgh castle, without the requisite order. The warder at the foot of the stairs refused admittance to the party, but was ultimately induced to allow his lordship to pass, upon his representation that he was one of her Majesty's ministers. Mr. and Lady Elizabeth Grey, however, not being able to advance the same claim were prevented following his lordship by the scrupulous porter, who, upon his lo ip's disappearing, straightway inquired t kirk has he He was informed that the gentleman he had just admitted was one of the Queen's civil ministers. aye, was the reply, dootless [doubtless] an unco [unto] ceevil [civil] man he is but whar [what] does he preach Mr. Grey said he was one of her Majesty's State ministers, and that it was Lord Carlisle who had just passed up stairs. Just at this point of the conversation, the earl, who had found it less difficult to was, returned to summon his sister and Mr. Grey to join him, when he was most respectfully saluted by the lay minister ee ey ae bottom of the steps as the Lord Bishop of mistake countenanced by & wide-awake which his lordship wore, and which the worthy man supposed to be the ical [cal] shovel. [shovel] make the functionary up stairs understand who he really join the Enterprise in the LANCASHIRE AND YORKSHIRE RAILWAY. The Committee of the Shareholders' Assocation, [Association, formed tor the purpose of obtaining a Reform in the management already established, that the great decline in the dividends, from eight to two per cent., and the ruinous fall in the value of the shares from 200 to 40, are in a very considerable degree, to be attributed to the general incompetency of the existing board. Though they attribute these great reverses in the main to a want of lcapacity [capacity] in the board, they allege that these evils were afterwards materially aggravated by some gross and wholly indefensible cases of trafficing [traffic] in shares with the funds of the company by some of the directors, the accidental discovery of which and the losses resulting there- [therefrom] from, generated mistrust and suspicion among the proprietary at large; destroyed the confience [confidence] of the public; prostrating the previously-shattered resources and credit of the com- [motion] tion [ion] that the 20 stock receives nothing-of its former amount. After referring to the appointment of a committee to act in conjunction with the directors, in the organisation of a new board, the committee proceed to observe- [observe this] This committee, associated with the board, performed the task committed to it, and made choice of a list of directors, composed one half of new men, and the other half of the old members, to succeed to the management; and this selection was accepted by the existing board pending the final decision of the shareholders, it repeatedly summoning the new body to confer on, and discuss with it, the future administration of the affairs of the company but, when the arrangement was considered by all parties to be complete, and that all was settled, excepting only that the election required confirmation by the proprietary, which there can be no doubt would have been readily ob- [obtained] tained, [gained] the old section of the board, who have been so long in office, and are still dominant, headed by Mr. Gill, and supported ardently by one or two of the directors most- [mostodlpable] in the share transactions, suddenly, without any previous notice, and at the last hour, when the meeting had actually assembled, repudiated alike their own acts and pledges, and that of the joint committee, and so re- [there] the whole question, left it to work as the apple of among the shareholders. The Shareholders' Committee next proceeds to charge Mr. Gill and Captain Laws with having silently canvassed the distant proprietors for proxies, wherewith to over-ride the decision of the meeting convened for the 2nd inst., to elect a new board, and then proceeds- [proceeding] And accordingly, at the said meeting of the 2nd instant, the twenty-two gentlemen selected and recommended by the Shareholders' Association to constitute the new board of management, composed of twelve old and ten new members, the greater number of whom had been already chosen by both of the preceding committees, and although including among them the man beyond all question more able to promote the welfare of the Company than any other- [other] Mr. Houldsworth-were rejected, and the list of Messrs. Gill and Laws, containing several highly respect- [respectable] able names certainly, but with them, also, those of as many others whose value, even in the eyes of Messrs. Gill and Laws, can only be, that they will support their system, was adopted by the votes of 64 persons present, and the proxies of 248 absent only, the votes of 93 persons present, and the proxies of 590 absent or, in other words, the opinions of the majority of 683 were overborne by a minority of 312, or less than one-half the number, simply because the latter had 718,600 more stock than the former, in a case where upwards of five millions were existing board had inserted in an Act of last year-profes- [year-profess- professing] sing very different objects-by which one proprietor having 100,000 stock has one hundred times as many votes, although absent, and consequently, in all probability, unin- [union- uninformed] formed on the question at issue, as another proprietor, having 1,000, even if present on the occasion. Your attention is particularly requested to the fact, that the list of directors pro and carried at the last meet- [meeting] ing, was never submitted to the shareholders till the day of meeting and the proxies polled to that list were obtained from a large number of shareholders without any knowledge on their part that they would be used in oppo- [op- opposition] sition [sit ion] to a considerable section of the Board and Share- [Shareholders] holders' Committee. The committee think it right also to observe, that while Messrs. Gill and Laws, and their associates, had-with all the advantages of being in office, and having access to the lists of shareholders, with the amount of stock held by each, from which the association was debarred-been can- [canvassing] vassing [passing] for votes and proxies for the whole previous month, the committee, disapproving on principle of the proxy system, and relying on the last appointed committee having been nominated in good faith to constitute a new board, made no preparations whatever to procure votes; and it was only on Wednesday, the 25th September, and then not until a letter of Captain Laws, the paid officer of the company, urgently soliciting proxies, was put into their hands, that their first proxy paper, together with their circular, was issued, and the regulations of the board re- [requiring] quiring [curing] that they should have been filled up and returned, if by post, by the following Saturday, it follows that their appeal was, at the short notice of-in the majority of cases -three days, responded to by more than twice the number of proprietors that Messrs. Gill and Co., and holding upwards of 2,200,000 in stock, exclusive of a large number of their proxies rejected through informalities, and others representing nearly half a million of stock that were returned one day too late besides proxies for 300,000 stock that were given against the committee through mistake, and which have been since voluntarily placed at their dis- [disposal] posal [Postal] for the future. To such a decision, therefore, of this momentous question, obtained in the manner and under the circum- [circus- circumstances] stances related, the association cannot yield its assent indeed, the single fact that out of a proprietary of upwards of 5,000, only 1,000, or a little more have voted, leaving nearly 4,000 who have as yet expressed no opinion at all on the subject, is with the committee almost a sufficient reason why the matter should be in submitted, in a more deliberate and careful mode, to the entire body of the shareholders. Acting on this determination, they express themselves willing to accept such an organisation of the board as would give the property they represent a proportionate voice in the management. This they allege has, by the course pur- [our- pursued] sued at the last meeting, been refused, and a change only in name has been effected. They object to the continuance of Mr. Gill at the board, on the ground that he is the very head and front of the system so generally condemned; and also, as they allege, because he is considerably in arrear [area] to the company for calls due on his shares, although, in the meantime, other shareholders had been sued and harrassed. [harassed] They also object to Mr. Gillon [Gallon] the ground that he, while largely in arrear [area] for calls, and contrary to the express declaration of the Act of Parliament, transferred from his name all the more valuable and marketable portions of his stock, leaving for the security of the company only that which was unsaleable, and which, if it could have been realised would, at the nominal market prices, have failed to produce even the amount of his debt to it. After some further statements, in which they allege that Mr. Gill did his utmost to be appointed a salaried director, notwithstanding his assertion to the contrary, they proceed to observe, that Captain Laws, who is in receipt of a salary of 1,500 a year, is a relative of Mr. Gill, and beyond these suspicious features warranting them in assuming that the company has latterly been managed by a family clique, they express their opposition to the principle of salaried directors altogether. The committee conclude their address in the following terms - They are anxious only to obtain a competent and an efficient Board of Management, and are wholly indifferent as to the individuals of whom it may be composed, provided always that they be well qualified for the office, and free from serious objections, and such a board they are desirous to have; and believing that their demand is for the common benefit and advantage, as well as just and reasonable in itself, they are resolved never to relax their efforts until it has been complied with. ae i The railway commissioners have remitted the tax upon excursion trains when they carry passengers at less one penny per mile, A On Sunday night, or rather at an early hour on Monday morning, the residence of Mr. Hol- [Ho- Holford] ford, of Regent's Park, was forcibly entered through one of the windows leading to the banqueting-room. The noise created by the burglars awoke Mr. Paul, Mr. Holford's principal butler (the latter gentleman and his family being absent in America), who awoke the other domestics, in whose hands fire-arms were placed with alacrity. Mr. Paul fired at one of the burglars, who was escaping across the lawn, and there is reason to fear that the discharge took effect, as traces of blood were found in the direction in which the prisoner made his escape, but it is supposed that he was carried off by two of his companions. Another of the burglars (there being four in all) named William yson, [son] was pursued by the coachman, who knocked him down with a pitchfork, and ultimately secured his man, to whom he administered severe punishment. The burglars appear to have been disturbed in the commence- [commencement] ment [men] of their plundering exploit, as few articles were carried off, though they left behind them the usual housebreaking apparatus. Dyson, who has been severely punished, was brought before the London magistrates on Monday, but has been remanded until that day week. A wounded man, says the Globe, was taken to St. Bartholomew's Hospital on Monday night, from the neighbourhood of the scene of the above burglary, in a condition such as the missing burglar might be supposed to be in. The man refused to give any account of the circumstances under which the injuries done him had been committed, and the belief is that he is the person.

A reward of 100 has been offered by the home secretary, and another of 20 by the turnpike trustees, for the discovery of the murderer; and a free pardon is offered to any accomplice, not being the rson [son] who actually committed the murder, who may give information leading to the conviction of the murderers. SUPPOSED POISONING IN CARDIGANSHIRE.-The neigh- [neighbourhood] bourhood [boyhood] of Pontrwydferdegoed has been thrown into a state of the most painful excitement, in consequence of the death of an aged lady, named Mrs. Ann Jones, under cir cumstances [cum stances] leaving no doubt of her having been poisoned by arsenic and the apprehension of her daughter-in-law, rs. Elizabeth Jones, as the suspected perpetrator of the crime. The unfortunate lady was a person of very respect- [respectable] able family, and had resided at Bronderbleau [Brindle] for a consi- [cons- considerable] derable [desirable] period with her eldest son, Mr. T. Jones, and his wife. In 1846, the deceased lady's brother died, leaving very considerable property, and bequeathing her, among others, a legacy of 1,000, which she placed in her son's hands, requesting him to deposit it at her banker's, at Aberystwith [abreast] instead, however, of fulfilling her intentions, it appears that he paid in the money in his own name, and appropriated 12 portion of it to his own purposes. This being discovered, Mrs. Jones commenced a suit for its reco- [recon- recovery] very, and obtained a verdict. The son then, without saying anything to his family, went off to America; and his wife and family went to live with his mother, and, as it is said, treated the old lady very unkindly. The old lady having afterwards died under circumstances of great icion, [ion] an inquest has been commenced on the body before the county coroner, who has ordered the stomach of the deceased lady Bristol, in consequence of the medical men, who made a mortem examination, inclining to the opinion that the coats of deceased's stomach showed signs of undue irrita- [irritant- irritation] tion. [ion] After taking some evidence of little moment, the enquiry was adjourned, and the prisoner was sent back to prison. DEATH OF THE QUEEN OF THE BELGIANS.-It is with the doapent [depend] regret that we have to announce the death, from phthisis, [phrases] of her majesty the Queen of the Belgians. The melancholy event took place on Friday morning, at Ostend, [Intend] whither her majesty had been removed from Brussels, in th, the hope that the change of air might improve her heal which for some time had been in a very unsatisfactory state. The deceased lady, Louise Marie Therese Charlotte Isabelle, Princess of Orleans, was daughter of the late Louis Philippe and the Queen Marie Amelie, [Amelia] and was born at Palermo on the 3rd of April, 1812; she was, consequently, at the time of her death, aged 38 years six months. Queen Amelie [Amelia] attended her daughter's death-bed. A special courier the death of her lamented relative. As soon as the arrange- [arrangements] ments [rents] will permit, the royal body will be removed into the private chapel of the palace, where mass will be daily offered up until deposited in its final resting place, either at Laeken [Lake] or at Brussels. Mass will also be performed in the various churches throughout the kingdom. The last time the deceased Queen visited England was in June last, when she came over to personally ascertain the health of her illustrious father, the deceased King Louis Philippe. We understand that at the time of her Majesty the England and Prince Albert visiting Ostend, [Intend] a short time since, the physicians in attendance upon the royal patient gave no hopes of her recovery.-Observer. StaTE [State] or TRADE, MANCHESTER, Tuesday. -Tho latest letters received from the Leipsic [Lips] fair soarcely [scarcely] come up to the expectations previously formed, in re; to yarns it seems, therefore, to be expected that the manufacturers will vere in their cautious policy of buying only from hand to mouth but, as their supplies are scanty, and the demand for their cloths good, their purchases from our spinners will necessarily be extended so much the more ugh the winter, which is attended with little difficulty now, as compared with former years. Prices are firm in bundles in w and cops there is a bias against the roducers, [producers] though the quotations are generally unchanged. uble [able] yarns are still neglected and there is less doing in the finer numbers of single, which have hitherto been in great request for Yorkshire and Russia. The Bombay merchants are still purchasing shirtings and madapollams [diplomas] where their terms are ed to, which, however, are such as are calculated to force on a diminution of the pro- [production] duction [Auction] to a greater extent than it has yet been carried, unless the approaching Calcutta mail should lead to an improvement. A FEMALE Burnt IN a Rattway [Railway] CaRRIAGE. [Carriage] On Monday morning Mrs. Stacey, a young married woman, who resides at Suffolk-place, Snow's-fields, Bermondsey, left the Waterloo station for Windsor by the 9 30 excursion train. The cortege in which she travelled was an open one, and contained about twenty passengers. On arriving between Richmond and Twickenham her muslin dress was set on fire by a spark trom [from] the engine, and in an instant she was enveloped in flames. Fortunately a gentleman, who was sitting by the side ot her, had the presence of mind to throw the affrighted [affected] woman down on the floor of the carriage, thus saving her face from the flames, which extended above her head, and with the prompt assistance of other passengers succeeded in extinguishing the fire. On arriving at Windsor, Mr. Wilmer, the station-master, immediately sent the sufferer in a carriage to the Royal Dispensary, where she was attended by Dr. Eton. Fortu- [Forty- Fortunately] nately [lately] it was then discovered that although her gown and under clothes were burnt on one side, from the lower part to the waist, she had miraculously escaped with the burning only of one of her hands, but was, naturally, in a state of great nervous excitement from the fright. CONSIGNMENT OF Stacs [Stack] to Lours NapoLrEon.-On [Napoleon.-On] Wednesday last, Mr. Herring, of the New Road, Regent's Park, animal dealer to her Majesty, received orders from Prince Louis Napoleon, President of the French Republic, for fifty English fallow deer, for the park of St. Cloud. Mr. Herring accordingly obtained fifty fine animals from Mr. Fuller, M.P., of Rose-hill Park, near Hastings, and with the assistance of Mr. Shaw, of the South-Eastern Railway Company, conveyed them in vans to the Staplehurst station, where they were placed in deer trucks and conveyed to Folkestone for transit to Paris by the railway company's steamer, Prince Ernest, via Boulogne. On their arrival at Folkestone the trucks were taken from the rails and run on board the steamer, under the direction of Mr. Shaw, without any injury to the animals. They were then taken to Boulogne, and thence to Paris, where Mr. Herring arrived on Friday morning, just as the president was about to pro- [proceed] ceed [seed] to the grand review of the troops. The deer were much praised by the president and his generals, and by orders received from the former, Mr. Herring took them to St. Cloud, where they were liberated in the park among a number purchased by the prince last year. - CONSCIENCE VITAL AND INDESTRUCTIBLE.-Conscience is the voice of God within me. No sophistry can get over this. In an hour of passion I may juggle it 'into a false de- [deliverance] liverance [France] but on the first hour of calm meditation it will come out with a true sentence, all emphatic and terrible the more for its prevarication. But I must not blink the fact, that there have been and are those-men especially of the selfish and assuciation [association] school of morals-who endeavour to get over the conclusion which I have just affirmed, and ogmatiseon [accommodation] conscience as purely an affair of geography and convention. What is right, they tell us, on one side of a mountain, is wrong on the opposite side and a river is sometimes the boundary of a virtue, as well as of an empire. They refer us to the undeniable fact of the prevalence of infanticide and parricide in various nations, savage and civilised they remind us of the rewards bestowed in ancient Sparta on theft, so it was dexterously performed ; they ask us what we can make of the Thuggeries [Piggeries] of Indostan [Standing] in homage to Kalee, [Alee] and of the persecutions of the Jewish and Christian churches in honourofJehovah; [honorific] they pass before us, in fine, the wide disparities of sentiment and practice which have existed and continue to exist over all the earth, in the matters of property, of chastity, of veracity, of loving- [unkindness] kindness and then they demand of us, how we can explain l these anomalies, in accordance with our belief in any original and permanent sense of right and wrong, as attach- [attaching] ing to humanity Undoubtedly, these are facts, and facts are stubborn things; and, at the first blush, they may well stagger the unthinking and the sceptically inclined. But on a moment's reflection it may be remembered, that man is precisely in the same pridicament, [predicament] in regard to his ra- [rational] tional [national] faculty, that he is here alleged to be in regard to his moral faculty. But whoever heard of the who. unless on a trial of dialectical skill, deduced an argument from the manifold ignorances and errors of men, to disprove the existence in him of a faculty to discriminate between truth and falsehood This is conceded, after all. And so. after all, the moral faculty must be allowed. All that these melancholy facts go to show is, that the conscience requires culture and training, as well as the reason; and that, in the same way, itisliableto [disabled] in Harmony with Man's Nature, ry Dr. Legge.
