Burglary at Farnley Tyas

BURGLARY AT Farnley Tyas. — much consternation: was caused in the above village on Sunday morning, at an! early hour, on it being discovered that the premises of Mr. 'Fhomas Holreyd;' farmer, had been burglariously entered dhring-the-preeeding right. It appears that Mr: Holroyd retired to bed about elever-o'clock on the night of the 13th instant, having first made all the doors and windows safe. About five o'clock on the following morning he was awoke by a noise in the adjoining room, where his father slept, and on getting up and going in that direction he found that his father had been down stairs, and was just returning to his bed-room. In consequence of what his father said, Mr. Holroyd went down stairs and looked around the yard, when he saw a young man named John Eastwood, whose: father lives near, and is alsoa small farmer, run into his parents' house; which was about 30 yards distant. On examination, it was found'that an entrancehad been effected by breakiug through the glass and wood-work of the whidow; and from general appearances. the barglar-had-cut himself with the glass in doing so, marks of blood remaining on the window blinds... It appears that Mr. Holroyd: sen., was awoke-by the movements of the burglar' im his room, and immediately jumped up in-bed, and caught thedelinquent, who waa on his belly upon the fioor, a severe blow over the head with a. stick, which caused him to escape down stairs, quickly followed by the old man, who is. more than sixty years of age.. In consequence of the confusion of the moment, however, the old man could not recognize the: features of thebarglar. On.examining the bed' room it was found tliat-the father's chest had beenbroken open, and the contents strewed. upon. the floor: 'Fhree sovereigns, tivo American: coins, two half-erowns, and' two shillings, had also been extracted from hisbreeches pocket... Information having been conveyed to superintendent Heaton, that active officer was quickly onthe: spot, and from what trangpired, he:

his father's house, but was ultimately found by the officer secreted under soine straw in a barn on his father's premises. He denied all knowledge of the burglary, but Mr. Holroyd, jun., positively asserted that he was the man whom he saw' in the act of running away frenr the house on the morning of the robbery. The foot-marks across the garden, towards Mr. Holroyd's house, were those of a man having shoes on, and those shoe-marks: corresponded' with a pair of shoes worn by Eastwood on the-previous day ; but the-impress of the foot on returning from Holroyd's was that ofa man without shoes ; and, what was a: suspicious: feature, the stocking-feet of the prisoner, when-apprehended, were covered with mud. Eastwood was taken inte custody on the charge, and on Tuesday last was brought before J. Armitage-and J. Brook, Esqrs., when his identity having been positively spoken ta by Mr. Holroyd, jun:, and the other cullateral circranstanees adduced in evidence against him, the Bence!» filly committed Eastwood on the charge: to the next assizes.

Matrimonial Squabbles

Prom-the constable's statement it would appear that tle prisoner thrashed' his wife in the bedroom on the night in question, and that she, woman like, did not hesitate to cry out " murder" and the other alarm-signals efitting these occasions:. This brought the officer to the spot; when he-found the:prisoner coolly looking out of nN: consequence of the wife's statement the:prisoner was. ultiThe wife did not appear in-court, the reason assigned' bsing that she was confined?

hands: of the prisoner. Under these circumstances the worthy magistrate said that the assault on the prisoner's wife could not be then gone into, and, he therefore inflicted: the usual drunkard's fine of 5s. making with-expenses; 14s. From the evidence: adduced' it strick us that therewas no proof that the prisoner' was drunk in the public: streets, and we imagine that no clause in the-Improvement' Act which inflicts a fine. upon a inan. for being intoxicated on his own premises...

We have pleasure in referring our readers'to the adver-

once so characteristic of the business and the proprietor.

Charge Against a Medical Officer

CHARGH-AGAINST.4A MEDICAL OFFICER. — A letter was read from a licensed lodging House keeper, residing in Castle Gate, named Dickinsan, wherein he. made a series of charges against Mr..tatham, one.of the medical. officers, for neglecting patients, under his care; while lodging in his heuse. At the request of the Board, Dickinsen.was-called into tha room to make his.statement, Mr. Tatham being also in attendance, with the view. to justify tho: course he, had pursued. ickinson made a. rambling statement, without alleging any specific case of neglect on the part of Mr. Tatham, until pressed by the Clerk to the Board, when it appeared that a widow woman,. named Anne Walker, sho had two children, in receipt of pay from the Board, had been lodging at Dickinson's House, who was ' Mr. 'Tatham, as the union cHicer, and from a tedious-and prolonged investigation we-gather-that Dickinson alleged that this woman, from. the Saturday to tho' following Wednesday had not rece'ved an order for any nourishment for her two children and herself from the surgeon, although-he was frequently importuned by Dickin-son, and also by tiie worman. herseki'so to do. The answer to this chargewas, on the part of Mr. Tatham, that he had no authority to make an order imthe case of the children, they being in a healthy state, and that Dickinson should have made an application to tho relieving officer on their behalf, whose duty it. was to relieve them without any authority from the surgeon. The woman, Mr. 'Tatham alloged, had been supplied with such nourishment as. the civcunstances of the case required from the Saturday to the Wednesday,

Freeman defended the prisoner, and at the conclusion of |. the case tendered bail, which the magistrates, owing to the |. serious nature of the charge; said they must reluctantly re, |.

returning cfficer, read his certificate prepared in confor:-/.

when she was removed to the Infirmary, It-further ap-peared, that the order for her removal to the Infirmar was signed on Monday, but did not reach Dickinson until the Wednesday, upon wh'ch Dickinson charged Mr. Tatham with keeping the order back during that time.' The answer to this charge was, that Mr Tatham handed the order to the relieving officer on the Monday at noon, where ie remained until the Wednesday, in consequence of the puxnacious course: pursued by Dickinson,.and 'partly, also, 1 consequence of a.reeserve displhnyed on the subject towards him by Mr. Tatham, who alleged that Dickinson came t» his surgery on Tuesday and'abused him, as on many forme occasions of late, andhe was compelled, in consequence of Dickinson's violence, te-turn him ont. The second case embodied in these charges was. for neglecting another inmate of this lodging House, named Isabella Anderton, under his medical charge:; but in this case, asin the forme one, the statements were-of so general and loose a chazacte> that it was decided to send for the woman. On her appearence bofore the board she failed in confirming Dickinson's statements in their most essential particulars. An: further, in nearly every question put to her she contraiicted the leacting allegations brought against Mr. Tatham in he Mr. 'Tatham briefly defended the course he had pursued 'in.reference to these matters, and ascribed t's course pursued: by Dickinson to some ill-feeling existing: in reference to himself, in connexion with the course he haut thought proper to pursue with patients in his house on it former occasion.. Mr. Morhougse ultimately moved a rezolution to the effect, that in the opinion of the Board th: charges"preferred: against Mr. Tatham were not substan+iated, which was second2d and carried, with only one dicsentient, namely, — Mr. Dale, who thouht that some negless had been shown in not removing the woman to the Intitraary on the Monday, the day on which the order bore aat=.

The Union Advertisements

THE UNION Advertisements. — mr. Joshua Eastwoop said, it having been suggested in that room last week th ar, in future, the union advertisements b2 inserted in the Mii+derstield Chronicle, and, if thought necessary, in the Lezds Mercury, he had then suggested that the matter be left fo the.consideration. of the new Board; and, in order to taxe their opinion on the matter, he had' given notice of such w motion, and' he. hoped: the Board, as now constituted, would take the matter up. It certainly appeared to hin, now. that they hada paper in Huddersfield, that it wou! L net be necessary to send a great many to Leeds, expecially as, in the advertisements for officers hitherto, the apphcants generally came from a great distance, which was w2 objection, in many instances,. in: point ot efficiency, an-I now that they had a loeal paper he thouzht that the ordihary announcements sonld gain ample publicity by inse:ing them in the Chroniele. If, upon some particular eee-isions, it should" be thought desirahle:to advertise in th: Leeds paper,.then of course the Board: would do so, anil therefore he begged to move that all the ordinary advertisements of the Board be, in future, advertised in the Huddersfield Chironieie only....... MY. SIDNEY Morirous: seconded the motion, on the. ground that it was a step in support of economy, inasmuch as he thought the majoric: of the advertisements of the union, if they appeared in the Huddersfield paper alone, would be sufficiently crevlated to obtain the requisite publicity for their announcements. eesees The motion was then agreed to unanimously, and after the transaction of some minor. business, the Buard stout adjourned.
