THE CHRONICLE, JULY 20, 1850. . CONDEMNATION OF THE CHRONICLE It is a great pity, and we regret it much, that our editorial staff is already complete. Had it been otherwise we might have placed ourselves under the tutelage of Mr. Commissioner SurciiFre, [Seizure] and thereby have saved ourselves from a multitude of sins, of both omission and commission. . That gentleman went out of his way last night, at the Commissioners' Board, for the purpose of having a fling at the Chronicle. The style of attack had the merit of originality its getting up was unique; and the running accompaniment of hear, hears completed. a very pretty little farce,' very appropriate, no doubt, as an after-piece to the 'grave business which had, a short time before, been occupying the attention of the Board. - Commissioner Sutcuirre [Secure] isa gentleman of stand- [standing] ing in Huddersfield-a magistrate, a patron of. letters, and distinguished for the amiability of his disposition under ordinary, but we fear not under extra-ordinary circumstances. Like many other worthy and good men, he has a way of his own, but he does not seem disposed to give the same latitude to the Editor of the Chronicle. Commissioner inferring that' our certificate of. baptism bearsadate [bedstead] coeval with the establishment of theChro- [there- the chronicle] nicle, [nice] very considerately recommended us to take his fatherly advice, and take aturn [turn] round. In what direction the turn is to be made our venerable adviser did not deign to explain. H we could con- [consistently] sistently [persistently] make a turn which would meet with the concurrence of Mr..Sutcliffe and his friends, without at the same time compromising those local interests we have pledged-ourselves to defend, we should be happy to listen to that gentleman's advice, and adopt his suggestions. But we have 'not as yet sufficient confidence in that gentleman's pioneering capabilities; and, judging from the feel- [feeling] ing already manifested towards us, we are half in- [inclined] clined [lined] to believe that the line. of procedure we have hitherto pursued has in the main shown us that we need not present. When we feel an inclination that way We may avail ourselves of Mr. Surcuirre's [Secure's] advice. At will, perhaps, excuse us if we refuse a delicate gyration after his pecular [peculiar] method. te But we must beg leave to tell Mr. SuTcLiFFE [Sutcliffe] that his attack on the Chronicle was as uncalled for as it was injudicious. If he had g arefully [g carefully] perused our file he would have found that in-our reports of proceedings we have invariably placéd [placed the conflict- [conflicting] ing arguments in-fair and honest juxtaposition. Did not Mr. Sttciirre [Stirred] profess so great a knowledge 'of newspaper management, we would remind him that the prominency [prominent] given to Mr. CrosLanp's [Crosland's] re- [remarks] marks, arose from the fact, that he was the only party dissenting from the recommendation of the committee in Mr. Howortn's [Howorth's] case; and not in con- [consequence] sequence of his being one of our party. However, we have no desire to say 'anything 'severe in answer to our venerable friend. We are ready to believe that our views are not in conson- [Johnson- consonance] ance [once] with his own; and his uncalled-for attack is, after all, perhaps, excusable; inasmuch as, possibly, we laid too heavy an embargo on his natural tem- [te- temperament] perament. [present] The best answer we can give to this little ebullition of feeling, for the present, is to report the venerable gentleman's own words (which we do in another column) in the full confidence that the 'public will, with us, smile at the gravity with which this mole-hill has been transformed into a mountain. re THE HUDDERSFIELD PEEL MEMENTO. Ovr [Or] columns, this day, furnish a somewhat lengthy report of a meeting held in the Guildhall, on Thursday night, having for its object an expression of condolence with Lady Pret [Pre] and her family on their domestic loss, and also for the purpose of set- [setting] ting on foot a subscription, whereby some worthy mark of our national loss may be adequately ex- [expressed] pressed at the meteoric suddenness with which one of the foremost-if not the foremost-man in these realms has been snatched from among us. The meeting was well attended, particularly by the working classes, who only wanted a more nu- [numerous] merous [numerous] body of efficient speakers to have led them forward in the object of the meeting with more than ordinary enthusiasm. How- [However] ever, in the unavoidable absence of some of the leading men of Huddersfield, there were amply sufficient reasons adduced by WILLam [William] Esq., and the Rev. G. B. Macpona.p. [MacPherson.p] A committee has been formed, of whose success we hope to hear favourable results, so that the town may stand in a conspicuous place among the many others now pressing forward to the of a similar object. ue The working-men have taken up the idea with alacrity, and, pionéered [powered] by an efficient committee, oftheir [of their] owirselection, [election] we thake [take] no doubt they will also. realise in their ranks a-goodly sum. i FACTORIES BILL. Tag amendment of Lord-Harrowsy [Lord-Harris] having for its object the limitation of the hours -of labour for childrén [children] extent. proposed in the case of women 'and young persons, has met with no success in the Lords. The number of Peers who voted for the amendment was 25; those against numbering 58. A second amendment 'was submitted by-the Duke of Ricamonp-similar [Richmond-similar] in character to that moved by Lord Joun- [John- Commoners] Manners in the Commons, 'which met with an able supporter in Lord STANLEY, who. took occasion to denounce the government measure as one caleulated [calculated] to prevent the harmo- [harm- harmonious] nious [nos] working of the present system, but the Bishop of. Mancuester [Manchester] followed by expressing, from experience, a diametrically opposite opinion. 'On a division there was a majority of thirteen against the Duke of RIcHMOND's [Richmond's] amendment. Thus the matter may fairly be presumed to have been set at rest, and we trust that neither operatives or employers will offer gratuitous obsta- [best- obstacles] cles [close] to the full development of. the measure, which has many features of a recommendatory character, so that it may come into operation as speedily as possible, and be fairly tested on its merits, ee THE PENNY WEDGE INTO. THE TEN- [TENANT] ANT-RIGHT [RIGHT] INTEREST. In another part of this day's Chronicle will be found a letter from Mr. James of Buxton- [Buxton] road, giving an account of the interview the depu- [deep- deputation] tation [station] from the various money and building clubs in Huddersfield and its neighbourhood, had with GrorcE [Grocer] Esq., agent to the Ramsden Trus- [Truss- Trustees] tees, when they waited upon that gentleman at Longley Hall, according to appointment, on Tuesday last. It will be remembered that the object of the deputation was to bring under the notice of the trustees the feeling of alarm amongst the holders of the tenant-at-will property on the Ramsden estates,.induced by an alteration determined' on, and reeently [recently] introduced, by the trustees, or théir [their] agents, in the mode of effecting transfers of such tenant-at-will property -such alteration involv- [involve- involving] ing an increase of ground rental every time a transfer is made. I will be observed that our correspondent describes the interview as having been a most satisfactory one; and he is almost magniloquent respecting the intentions of the pre- [present] sent managers of the Ramsden estates to promote -the prosperity of the town of Huddersfield, and respecting the numerous, loyal, happy, and con- [contented] 'tented tenantry these said managers have under them. We are sorry that we cannot join Mr. Broox [Brook] in his description of the interview above spoken of, the more especially when we remember ' the conclusion to which the conference led; nor do we think that fulsome and sycophantic repre- [prepare- representations as] sentationsas [presentation] to the loyalty evinced, and happiness and contentment enjoyed, by the Ramsden tenantry, are the best mode of promoting that good and properly- [properly grounded] grounded feeling which ought to subsist between landlords and a tenantry. The time has gone by when factitious, hollow, unmeaning nothingness, will stand in the stead of proper regard and full performance of duty on the part of landlords-and of true independence and heartfelt respect on the part of the tenantry and well it is that such a time has passed away.. The axiom, that property has its duties, as well as its rights, must now be- [become] come something more than a saying; and the inculcation of self-respect and a sturdy independ- [in depend- independence] ence [once] on the part of tenants, will secure for them far more real regard and true consideration than 'would follow from the exhibition of a slavish, do pendent, crawling spirit. We have said that we cannot agree with Mr. Broox's [Brook's] representation that the interview with Mr. Loca [Local] was a satisfactory one and we will now show our reasons wliy [li] we cannot so agree, We do not for a moment dispute the statement that Mr. Locu [Lock] was gentlemanly and courteous. It would, indeed, have been matter of surprise and strong comment had he been otherwise. the representatives of the money and building clubs, who-are subscribing for half-a-million of money to be mainly laid out upon the RamspEn [Rams pen] estates, were entitled, at the least, to a respectful and courteous reception on the part of the agent of those estates. But while we are careful to let re- [respectful] spectful [respectful] demeanour and courteous reception have their due weight in such conferences as the one we 'are commenting upon, we must never forget that praise is not pudding and we must be the more careful to see that in our appreciation of the man- [manner] ner, [ne] we do not lose the more solid advantages of tthe [the] matter. We are afraid that in this instance Mr. Broox [Brook] and his friends have done so. Let us examine Mr. Broox's [Brook's] statements, and then see the conclusion to which Mr. Locu [Lock] came. Mr. Brook states that Mr. Locu [Lock] unequivocally assured the deputation that the public need not be adarmed [alarmed] as no measures will be adopted by either the Trustees or agents of the estate, which will in the slightest degree shake that confidence which has hitherto been reposed in the honour of the RamspEn [Rams pen] family. Well, it is consolatory to receive such an assurance from such a quarter but Mr. Locu [Lock] must excuse us for repeating for him the expressive distich- [distinct- stewards] Words are but wind Actions speak the mind. And it is possible that what he may consider as affording no ground for alarm, may be by others deemed to be pregnant with momentous conse- [cone- consequences] quences. [sequence] In the instance before us, a new regula- [regular- regulation] tion [ion] has been introduced which involves an increase of rent. This is a departure from the old terms of holding-the understood principle of action being no increase-nor any change, without due compen- [company- compensation] sation. [station] Mr. may see in this new arrange- [arrangement] ment [men] no cause of alarm, but we must avow that we do. Mr. Brook also states that, as for the reported advance of two-and-a-half per cent. upon the ground-rent of tenant-right property, every time a transfer took place, either to clubs, purchasers, or mortgages, such a principle and practice Mr. Locu [Lock] repudiated altogether. If we had not reason to believe that in this statement Mr. Broox [Brook] is a little mistaken, we should with him describe the inter- [interview] view as having been a satisfactory one; but when, instead of the principle of increase of rental, on oc- [occasions] casions [occasion] of transfer, being repudiated, we learn that such principle is to be acted upon, we cannot see much cause for gratulation. [congratulation] If the principle be repudiated, why is not a return at once to be had to the old system Why is there to be any change What need for a departure from the old custom We believe that Mr. Locn [Lon] did discowntenance [discontinuance] the practice of the two-and-a-half per cent. increase of rental; and, perhaps, Mr. Broox [Brook] has used the most correct word which could have been applied to Mr. Locu's [Lock's] conduct in the matter. We under- [understand] stand that Mr. Locu [Lock] denied that ever it was in- [intended] tended to add two-and-a-half per cent. to the amount of ground-rentals, on every occasion of trans- [transfer] fer; and, when reminded of instances where this had already actually been done, they were ascribed to mistake on the part of the resident agent. Now, if these additional charges to the rental were the result of mistake, it was certainly not an ordinary mistake and the more especially when it is remembered how long the alteration has been contemplated and under discussion. It is clear, moreover, that the mistake, if mistake it were, was but a mistake in amount; not a mistake in PRINCIPLE. The principle of increase is still retained -only, it is not (at present) to be two-and-a-half per cent. at a time. Mr. Brook, in his account of the interview, does not give us the actual RESULT of the conference- [conference the] the arrangement which was determined on. His omission we will supply. Instead of the increase of rental, on the occasions of transfers, being two-and-half per cent. (as have been charged in mistake they are only, at present, to be after the rate of one penny on rentals not ex- [exceeding] ceeding [feeding] one pound. But here isthe [other] very principle which Mr. Broox [Brook] tells us Mr. Locu [Lock] repudiated That principle istomake [mistake] an increased rent-charge of that which has hitherto been satisfied by a fee of 2s. 6d. Now, there must be something in this principle-it must have some effect-or why change Why should a tenant who pays 2 ground-rent have two-pence added to that rent, as an annual charge, if he wishes to have another per- [person] son booked in the rent-roll along with himself, instead of paying his half-crown, as before time, and having done with it Why should the former custom be set aside, and the principle of increased rentals Listen-listen-listen. Most of the old tenant-at-will property (as it is called) is held without the holders having signed any written document constituting them tenants- [tenant sat] at-will; [will] the only bargain being that for such a piece of land they shall pay such a rental annu- [Ann- annually] ally. On those pieces of land the holders have, at their own cost, erected buildings, either for dwell- [dwelling] ing-houses, [houses] for manufactories, [manufacturers] or for the purposes oftrade. [of trade] So long as the holders are in this condition, with no new bargain made between the owners of the soil and themselves, and so long as they con- [continue] tinue [tine] to pay the rent originally agreed upon, they cannot be dispossessed nor their rental increased with- [without] out the full vauuaTion [valuation] of the buildings being paid to them. But if they are parties to any arrange- [arrangement] ment [men] which breaks the original bargain; if they are parties to an increase of rental only to the 'extent of one penny in the pound, that moment their position is changed. They will, by that act, have proved themselves to be mere tenants at-will ; and their rentals may 'either be increased upon them 'at will, or they may be ejected from their holdings without one penny compensation being paid them Now, we hear that it has been a part of the policy of the present managers of the Ramsden Estates to get these old holders into a different position. Some time ago circulars were prepared and sent out from Longley-hall, containing printed forms of application, to be filled up and returned ; such application altering the legal position of the holder so applying, and placing him at a dis- [disadvantage] advantage. But this mode was found to be too alarming. It raised too many enquiries as to its object and scope and it was therefore discontinued. It appears to us that this alteration involving in- [increase] crease of rental on the occasion of transfers, is one calculated to accomplish the same object. At all events, 2 will assuredly have that effect Any old holder submitting to an increase of rental of only one penny in the pound, places himself in a position where he may be compelled to submit to increase after increase, of pounds; nay, to have the whole of his holding, buildings and all, taken from him without compensation It is clear, therefore, that in such a case the penny- only a penny -means pounds To establish the principle, a penny will do as well as the two-and-a-half per cent., which was so strangely mistaken at Longley-hall as the proper rate of increase. The penny is the qwedge [wedge get the thin end of that wedge in, and it will soon be driven home. The old adage has it, that if you take care of the pence, the pounds will take care of themselves. In this case, that adage has a peculiar but very significant meaning. As guardians of the public weal, we must enter our protest against the introduction of this penny wedge and, indeed, against any alteration in the conditions of holding on the Ramspen [Ramsden] estates, without good reason being shown either for the necessity or expediency of such alteration. If there be no cause for alarm in this penny alteration, the agents of the estate will soon make that fact apparent by wholly and for ever abandoning it. It cannot be for the amount of additional rent it will raise that they will stickle [tickle] for it for that would be.a penny wise administration indeed. If the alteration be persisted in, it will be apparent that it is made for some ulterior and legal object; and if once this penny increase be acquiesced in, how can the holders resist other attempts at increase The honour of the Ramspen [Ramsden] family is involved in this question. With all the old holders that honour is pledged never to increase the rental, nor to dis- [dispossess] possess without compensation. Break that pledge, even by the insidious ;introduction of the penny wedge, and that honour is forfeited-is gone. Once introduce the principle of increase, and the whole of the tenantry will be at the mercy of the managers of the estates for the time being. Things will not always remain as they are. There may succeed those as managers who imagine the cardinal point of duty is to increase the rental, and who may then take advantage of the PRINCIPLE this penny alteration will (if submitted to) have established. The estates themselves may fall into the hands of a youthful spendthrift-one who loves play and sport. The princely revenues derived from them may be run through in a few years, and the affairs of the indiscreet owner placed in the hands of assignees. If ever such a day comes, the doom of the holders of the tenant-at-will property is sealed. The assignees would feel themselves bound to make the most of the estates while in their hands, seeing that the owner, for whom they acted, had only a Jife-interest [Life-interest] in them. As the whole of the buildings on that portion of the tenant- [tenant] at-will [will] property where the holders have signed the recently introduced form of application, or done any act which constitutes them tenants-at-will, in law belong to the owner of the soil for the time being, the present holders would inevitably be dis- [dispossessed] possessed, and the whole of the rack-rental, for buildings and all, secured towards the payment of the owner's debts. Whatever, therefore, tends to place more of the tenantry in a position to be thus dealt with, must be by us viewed with suspi- [sup- suspicion] cion [Lion] and alarm, whatever assurances to the con- [contrary] trary [Tracy] may be given by Mr. Locu. [Lock] The best and most safe assurance which could possibly be given, would be to let the terms and customs of holding alone. If nothing is intended by the recent change; if the penny is not introduced as a wedge to be driven further afterwards, this will readily be done but if the alteration be pertinaciously per- [persisted] sisted [sister] in, depend upon it that the wedge, though thin and insignificant at first, means something more in the future. This is a vital question for the money and build- [building] ing clubs of the town and neighbourhood, and also for all the lenders of money on tenant-at-will pro- [property] perty. [petty] If the alteration-the penny in the pound increase of rental-have the legal effect we have described, their security is impaired. It therefore behoves them to look well to it. Our advice is, that every effort be made to prevent the introduc- [introduce- introduction] tion [ion] of the penny wedge. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. HUDDERSFIELD TROOP OF YEOMANRY.-The C. division (Huddersfield) of the Second West-Yorkshire Yeoman have, within the last few weeks, been subject to full drili, [drill] in preparation for their to Harrogate, which event we are informed is to take place on the 3lst [last] inst, On Wednesday morning, the troop mustered at the Riding-school, Ramsden-street, at half after eight, and about nine, headed by the band, marched through the town, for Skircoat-moor, [Scott-moor] under the command of Captain Armitage. The gallant corps joined the Halifax and Brad- [Bradford] ford troops upon Skircoat [Scott] Moor, near Halifax. The various movements and military evolutions [evolution] were gone through in a manner highly creditable, and elicited high encomiums from the gentlemen connected with the regular army who witnessed them. The annual dinner, given by the lieuten- [Lieutenant- lieutenant] ant-colonel [colonel] and the officers to the rest of the troops, and friends, took Place in the Oddfellows' Hall, Halifax, in the afternoon. ongst [inst] the invited guests we noticed the Mayor gos [God] Crossley, Esq.), Ralph, William Haigh, J. Appleyard, John Emmet, J. Sutcliffe, Walker Shaw, Esqrs. [Esquires] Col. Ramsden, J. Armitage, Esq., of Huddersfield Captain Stansfield, Field House 3 Capt. Dyson, Dr. Lister; Messrs. Pitchforth, J. 8. Highley, R. Nelson, Naylor, &c., &c.; Capt. Fyffe [Fife] and the officers of the regiment located in Halifax. The dinner-which was necessarily short, the regiment having to assemble for mounted parade at six o'clock-was very good, and the proceedings highly gratifying. The following toasts were given The Queen, by Col. Pollard (who presided) ; the band playing 'God save the Prince Albert and the rest of the Royal Family, by Col. Pollard tune, Rule Britannia. Lord-Lieutenant and Magistrates of the West Riding, by Col. Pollard; tune, Old English Gentleman. The Mayor and Corporation, by Colonel Pollard tune, Grand Chorus.

[Labour] Since Sunpay [Sunday] DIMINvuTIO [Diminution] 7 ments [rents] many instances of great inconvenience ve come under our notive. [notice] The following was related to us in conversation, and it, in some measure, shows the ab- [absurdity] surdity [absurdity] of supposing that Sunday communication can be stopped ;-the channel may be changed, but the abour about] will be vastly increased -A respectable solicitor, resident in our borough, received information that a special jury- [jury list] list would be sent from London (necessarily) on Saturday night last (now that its transmission by post was prevented), as a parcel, by railway. Uncertain as to its time of arrival, a clerk was compelled to be present at the station during the most of Sunday. On reaching here, it had aguin [again] to be transferred to Dewsbury, where a clerk was also waiting thence, to its destination. Thus creating both unnecessary delay and unnecessary labour. hi a a Mr. Moopy's [Moody's] ENTERTAINMENT.- [ENTERTAINMENT] This gentlemen w appear at the Philosophical Hall on Wednesday evening next, and give his celebrated vocal entertainment, entitled Notes for English Circulation, together with his first-rate Tmitations Imitations] of London Actors, and we trust he will meet with the support to which his well known professional abilities entitle him. Nove [Nov] CrickET [Cricket] Matcu.-The [Match.-The] lovers of this old English and manly game will be afforded an opportunity of witness- [witnessing] ing some spirited play this afternoon (Saturday). The contest is to be between the compositors of the Chronicle and the jobing [jobbing] printers of thetown. [the town] We need scarcely add that many a ball is expected to be astronomised astronomer and many a 'fine catch taken; nay more, it is anticipated that the score list will not show a single cipher, a leg before wicket, a wide, a bye, or even a stumpt, [stumps, but that opposite the names of each, more especially of the estab- stables- establishment] lishment [enlistment will figure a long score of severe hits. The event is to come off in High Fields. THE FREEHOLD LanD [And] MOVEMENT.-A meeting of the members of this society, in the Huddersfield district, was held in the office rooms, in Market Walk, on Saturday evening Mr. James Hallin [Mallin] the chair. In order to mect [met] the necessary incidental expenses, attendant on bringing Freehold Land Societies into existence in every district of England and Wales, a 'frechold [Freehold] wnion [union] fund' has been called into existence, and we are happy to find that several gentlemen in our own town have put down their names as subscribers in support of this movement. In order to carry out the plans of the Executive Council a sum of 1,000 is required for the current year, and when it is borne in mind that these and similar societies, are effecting a salutary moral reform in those places where they have been brought into existence, by encouraging forethought and economy, and acting as a stimulus to habits of temperance and virtue, there is little doubt that the sum above mentioned will be ultimately raised for carrying on the operations of the society during the ensuing year. FIRE IN TRINITY-STREET.-On Monday last, between the hours of four and five in the afternoon, the roof of the boiler-room connected with the steam saw-mill of Mr. Kirk, joiner, Trinity-street, was discovered to be on fire. Assistance was soon obtained, and after a little trouble the fire was extinguished. From personal examination we are glad to say the damage is not extensive, though we regret to record that it was another instance, by far too frequently occurring, of carelessness on the part of one of the work- [workmen] men. It appears that a quantity of groove shavings and sawdust had been allowed to accumulate in the boiler-room, near to the boiler fire and there is every reason to believe that the workman in charge of this department, on going to his tea, had either left the furnace door open, or, what is more probable, raked the fire carelessly, and allowed the hot cinders to come in contact with this light inflammable material, which had immediately ignited and carried the fire rapidly to the roof. The damage might have been extensive, and it is to be hoped that in future greater cau- [ca- caution] tion [ion] will be observed by men employed in a similar capacity. METHODIST NEW CONNEXION ScHOOL [School] ANNIVERSARY.- [ANNIVERSARY] The anniversary in connection with these schools was cele- [cell- Ceylon] in an open space of ground, near the viaduct at Paddock, on Sunday last. A large temporary platform with a gallery had been erected for the occasion, and was crowded with the scholars, their teachers, and a powerful choir. The afternoon and evening were occupied by recitations and hymns, the Rev Mr. Staceys, [Stacey] and 2 Orme speaking during the intervals. It was a beautiful day and many thousands were present during the services. Collections amounting to upwards of 20 were made in behalf of the schools. FURTHER ANNOYANCES ON THE HUDDERSFIELD AND PENISTONE BRANCH RaiLway.-We [Railway.-We] have during the past two weeks been called upon most reluctantly to complain of the manner in which the passengers on this line are ac- [accommodated] commodated, [committed] but as yet we regret that no improvements have been made, or any steps taken to remedy the gross mismanagement which has characterised the working of this branch since it was first opened. We this week give another instance of irregularity, selected from a number of others. On Monday a Huddersfield tradesman took a ticket from Sheffield to Huddersfield, by the train leav- [leave- leaving] ing Sheffield at 10 1 a.m. He arrived at Penistone at 11 20 a.m., but the Huddersfield train having left he was compelled to remain at Penistone until 4 20 p-m., when he got forward to the Holmfirth Junction, where he was informed that there would not be a train through to Huddersfield for two hours and a half more. In this state our informant and four similarly situated companions made the wise resolve to walk from the Holm- [Holmfirth] firth junction into Huddersfield, at which latter place they arrived about 5 p.m., but the poor unfortunates who waited at the Junction for the train did not arrive until 7 p.m. If the railway company fancy that the general public will much longer snbmit [submit] to such mismanagement we suspect that the sequel will show them that they are reckoning without their host. ACCIDENT.-CHILD Run Over.-An accident of th's nature occurred on Wednesday morning last, to a child about three years of age, son of Mr. Allen, of the firm of Oldfield and Allen, woollen merchants, of this town. The little fellow was playing about in Trinity street, and got rather confused between two carts going up the road, when a gig, which was travelling at a very moderate pace, in passing knocked him down. The driver instantly used every endeayour [endeavour] to draw up, and fortunately so far suc- [such- succeeded] ceeded [needed] as not to run over him, but was unable to prevent the little fellow from passing immediately under one of the wheels, whereby he was severely crushed. We have not heard the exact extent of the injury, but believe there is every hope of recovery. STEALING a SHAWL.-On Thursday last, at the Guildhall, before Jos. Starkey, Esq., Nancy Heely, was charged with stealing a shawl, value 5s., the property of Ann Mulro, [Munro] both ladies ot Irish extraction. The prosecutor on Monday night last took up her temporary residence at Mary Bond's, who caters 'Lodgings for travellers, and during her stay there was introduced to Nancy Heely. They cracked their jokes during the evening, and all went merrily. The mor- [or- morrow] row came, and Ann went out to wash, wearing the shawl as partof [part] her personal adornment. On returning in the evening it was thrown carelessly across a chair, till its owner visited the grocer's; in the interval Nancy's eyes fell upon the shawl, and being fascinated by its rich colours, could not be withdrawn; gradually the influence increased, until her fingers came into contact with the coveted article, when quick as her own thought, it was transferred to her posses- [possession] sion, thence to the shop of Mr. Hirst, pawnbroker, Buxton- [Buxton] road, and there pledged, along with a sheet, for the sum of Is. 9d. The groceries gbtained, [obtained] Ann soon discovered the mysterious disappearance of her property, and learning on inquiry who was the frail culprit, raised the hue and cry; and soon acting-inspector Sedgwick was taking every pre- [precaution] caution for the capture of a woman with red hair, and very drunk. With the natural instinct of a policeman on such an errand, he shortly found himself in Mr. Hirst's pawnbroker's shop; and whom should he meet but the un- [unfortunate] fortunate woman with red hair, whose conscience had compelled her again to visit her uncle, but whose ac- [acquisitiveness] quisitiveness [inquisitiveness] delayed her a littletoo [little] long. In vain she pro- [protested] tested against both her name and identity, but no amourt [amount] of protestation could satisfy her detainer. Subsequently the whole party appeared befor [before] the magistrate Ann swore to her lost treasure, and Nancy, not finding bail, was committed to take her trial at the ensuing sessions. FESTIVITIES AT BRETTON HaLL.-On [Hall.-On] Friday last, the neighbourhood of Bretton, was the scene of more than ordinary rejoicing, this eo day chosen to celebrate the coming of age of T. W. umont, [amount] Esq., the heir to the Bretton estates, on which oceasion [occasion] a sumptuous dinner was provided for the numerous tenantry on the estate. Those whose rental was under 20 were liberally entertained at the Rose aud [and] Crown Inn, Darton, and the more extensive holders on this estate were entertained at Bretton Hall, were a splendid repast was supplied. NEW CHAPLAIN TO THE LEEDS BorovcH [Borough] Gaot. [Got] -In consequence of the Bishop of Ripon having refused to license the Rev. T. B. Langley, the gentleman appointed by our borough magistrates, in February last, as chaplain of the borough gaol, it has been found necessary to select another gentleman to supply his place. The magistrates having ascertained that the clergymen who were candi- [candid- candidates] dates at the time of Mr. Langley's appointment being made, were still willing to accept the office, a meeting was held on Thursday in last week, to make a second appoint- [appointment] ment. [men] The Rev. W. 'T. Derenzy, [Frenzy] of Banham, Attleborough, Norfolk, was this time the successful candidate, and he is now the chaplain elect.-Lceds [elect.-Leeds] Mf. ercury.

The defendant acknowledged having had a, little beer, but, of course, was, not and beseeched Mr. Starkey to allow him to call his wit- [witnesses] nesses- very [senses- very very] 1espectable [respectable] witnes3es, -that [witness, -that] gentleman de- [declined] clined [lined] the honour of proceeding further with the examina- [examine- examination] tion, [ion] and fined the defendent [defendant] Is. and expenses. THE PEEL TESTIMONIAL, MANCHESTER,-The committee for promoting the above object continue active in their can- [canvas] vas [as] for subscriptions. At the committee meeting held on Tuesday, a letter was read from the Lord Bishop of Mar- [Manchester] chester cordially approving the object, and adding his name to the list of contributors for 21 guineas, that sum being the maximum fixed by the committee. The police force have subscribed 152. 17s. towards the fund, and the net subscrip- [subscribe- subscription] tion [ion] amounts to 3,838 .-BIRMING [3,W .-BIRMINGHAM --A public meeting with reference to this subject was held at the Public-office, in thistown, [this town] on Tuesday, the Hon. and Rev. Grantham Yorke the chair. A report was read from the Artisans Committee, setting forth that the movement for a penny subscription to aid the national monument fund had not only been most cordially received, but there was a wide-spread feeling that Birmingham ought to have a monument of its own. The meeting concurred in this; and on the motion of Mr Alder- [Alderman] man Geach, [Each] seconded by Mr. Alderman Lawson, a resolu- [resolute- resolution] tion [ion] was passed, appointing a committee to receive sub- [subscriptions] scriptions [descriptions] and decide upon some suitable memorial in acknowledgment of the public worth of the great statesman who has been so unfortunately lost to England.
