THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1850. THE LOCAL CHRONICLE. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1850. THE DISGRACEFUL SQUIBBING SYSTEM. We are of those who think and feel that when ections sections] are over, electioneering practices should eesse [esse] that the winning party should bear their semphs Memphis] meekly and that defeat should be grace- [gratify] iify [if] and resignedly submitted to, unless peculiar aets [sets] of opposition, or acts of individual treachery, ex for comment or reprobation, with a view to sasizin [assassin] the freedom of election or to vindicate inde- [ind- independent] gendent [gent] principle. With this simple and easily amderstood [understood] reservation, we think that all the attempts to excite feeling and to stir up to exer- [exe- exercise] Sem. [Se] by means which have now acquired a sort of BFescriptive [Descriptive] use among us during elections, should sxai; [sail] that each party to the contest should make tke [the] most and the best of their respective gains and Teenes [Teens] and that the inhabitants generally should Bie [Be] allowed to settle down to their respective every- [every guy] Guy avocations, instead of their attention being kept ug, and curiosity excited (and oftentimes worse by anonymous attacks upon parties, indi- [India- individuals] wauals, [walls] or private character. And what we have thus felt we have endeavoured fact upon. Before, and during the course of the seeent [sent] election for Improvement Commissioners, we were among the foremost to point out the nature of the coming contest to indicate the principles at ismue [issue] to vindicate the conduct of the Improvement caumissioners, Commissioners] when they were assailed by un- [reasoning] peasoning [reasoning] clamour to expose the fallacies and the exudities [excites] of ignorance and impudent self-conceit, whieh [which] sought to make the electors instrumental & the success of personal malignity, and to the perpetuation of individual wrong. But the moment the contest was over, that moment our warfare ceased. The decision of the poll was to us sufficient. 'Zhe [The] principles we had endeavoured to maintain geceived [received] a most signal triumph; but we endea- [end- endeavoured] weured [were] to let the fact suffice for our ovation. We ima falged [ma failed] in no unseemly boasts we derided not the defeated. In an article, as general as it was peesible [possible] for us to make it, and apologising to our seaders [readers] for having, while the contest raged, been mecessitated [necessitated] to handle distasteful subjects, we took eur leave of the matter, without singling out an imdividual [individual] or directing attention to any individual act. we were disposed to let the matter pest there the matter ought to have rested. J Unfortunately, this spirit has not actuated some ef those who, during the recent contest, have been epposed [opposed] to us. With a very ill-grace, indeed, have fey submitted to defeat. Their chagrin and wounded feeling have been too strong to be bound dexn [Dean] by ordinary rule, or ordinary conduct. The Beactices [Practices] which during an election all consent to trderate, [treated] have been continued since the election, to the-disgust and pain of every right-minded man. Axonymous [Anonymous] attacks, without printer's name, have been profusely circulated and others pointing at in ividuals [in individuals] in the worst taste, have followed. As amght [might] have been expected, these attacks have pro- [provoked] woked [worked] rejoinders and these rejoinders have served &-imcrease [increase] the chagrin and ill-nature of the origin- [originally] ally defeated. Now, against this system of anonymous attacks ex private character we most unequivocally raise tHe [the] voice of condemnation. We denounce it as eowardly [cowardly] and atrocious. The man who resorts w it, is at best a most unworthy opponent, and i most cases an injudicious partizan. [partisan] Happily, in the present state of society, there is less excuse for the practice of sguibs [subs] than formerly existed. Almost every large town can now boast ef its newspaper, and the public press is ever open diseuss [disease] all proper public questions. With the Bewspaper [Newspaper] press there is a safeguard for full and ee discussion-and there is also a guarantee agamst [against] licentiousness. With a newspaper there are.always registered responsible proprietors, answer- [answerable] able to the law, and to individuals, for their acts. or a wrong done there is a simple and ample And while the proprietary are thus re- [responsible] apensible [sensible] to the public and to individuals, the cor- [correspondent] vaspondents [respondents] of the press are responsible to that weeprietary; [secretary] or, rather, there is a guarantee in own responsibility that newspaper proprie- [prepare- proprietor] will not permit correspondents to run them mo danger. The notice is now almost stereotyped wet the name of a contributor is required, not mecessarily [necessary] for publication, but as evidence of 'gsod [good] faith and he must have a poor case in he peer, or be he peasant be he justice, or be he operative-who dare not entrust his name wah [was] his correspondence. He must have a purpose verve neither honourable nor honest who fears t#.set his hand to his own diatribes and it is such a raan, [ran] and such a man only, who will send forth ies [is] cowardly attacks in anonymous hand-bills. 'We have been led into these remarks from the eccurrences [occurrence] of the past week in reference to this most reprehensible mode of bush-fighting. The txwn [town] of Huddersfield has been in a most unusual skate of excitement from this practice of anonymous abe; and this being a fit occasion to exhibit the evil effects of the cowardly habit, we venture to exzdeavour [endeavour] to improve it. For the excitement we allude to, those who would aot [at] consent to desist from electioneering practices when the election was over are mainly to blame. We are glad to have it to say that no provocation ef this kind has been given by the party we es- [espoused] poused [posed] during the recent contest that the first ows [ow] have invariably been struck from the other side and that what has been done in opposition Eas [Was] been by way of retaliation-but which would have been better let alone. By this time we hope all parties are convinced of the folly of the Beactice. [Practice] Why is a -eap [ap] like death [death] it' - gun-cap ea Because it's a debt & screw steamer is the Clyde.

KEPRESENTATION [REPRESENTATION] OF POOLE.-It is expected that the ection [action] will take place next Tuesday. The writ was re- [received] by the returning officeron [officer on] Wednesday. Mr. Gordon axidressed [expressed] the electors on Wednesday, and was well received, 'Par aND [and] YORKSHIRE RaILway [Railway] WEEKLY ao ending September 15, 1850, 15,928 1s. ; mies [miles] open, Co mding [ding] wi oO. t year, 32,912 3s. miles open, 196. ens The Liverpool Town Council have claimed 2,100 from the parish as magistrates clerks' fees, and threatened to ase [as] steps for the recovery of the amount.

As the signs of the approaching concourse to the Ex- [Exposition] position of 1851 appear, those who have foresight and intelligence should betimes prepare the appliances which will be needed, and which those signs indicate. It is quite evident that the state of London for that year will be wholly abnormal-more, perhaps like a holiday watering-place on the most gigantic scale than any other thing; and yet unlike that in many respects -particularly in the gravity of the matters to be dis- [discussed] cussed, and in the absence of any counter-attraction in the shape of some other and greater town, to divert part of the pressure. Besides the Exposition and con- [concourse] course belonging to it-besides the shoals of visiters [visitors] come to sce [se] the concourse-we see that other exposi- [expose- expositions] tions [tins] will flock to take advantage of the immense mar- [market] ket. [let] The Peace Association will try to gain the ear of the allied sovereign peoples attending here by deputy; Social Reformers are to set forth their doctrines divers political bodies talk of having their special expositions ; panoramas are projected; Covent Garden Opera counts on a full season to reimburse losses. We notice that the working class clubs, throughout the country, to save up money and organize excursions to London, are multiplying. Now there is a danger attending such a state of things, which we would gladly see averted. In the first place, greedy speculators will flock to prey upon the shoals of strangers in London; in the second place, those greedy speculators, emptying the purses of visitors prematurely and wrongfully, will defeat many of the best incidents of the season-the experience, informa- [inform- information] tion, [ion] and enjoyment of the travellers. We say nothing of the fact that this fraud will be partly at the expense of the fair dealer, as that is beside our present purpose. We are thinking mainly of the extent to which the very objects of the Exposition will be defeated, and of the disgrace that will be entailed upon London. Steps should be taken to prevent both disasters and if the legitimate trader knows his own interest, he will per- [perceive] ceive [receive] how much it is engaged to co-operate in securing the objects of the Exposition and the comforts of the visitors against exto-tioa [ext-tia] and fraud. The Commissioners have already taken a measure which will protect the artisan class against one kind of extortion-that of exorbitant lodging-rent-by opening a registry for lodgings; which will give the registered lodging-house-keepers all the advantages of preference, while certain conditions as to respectability, settled charges, and accommodation, will be secured to the visitors. The registry is a very simple contrivance, which will effect incalculable good. A similar contri- [country- contrivance] vance would be very valuable for other classes besides those of the artisan order, and we presume that it will not be neglected. But there are many other ways in which such security might be afforded to visitors- [visitors especially] especially for transit, whether in long or short jour- [our- journeys] neys; [ness] for inn accommodation for amusements and for guidance. In all these branches of service it would be well if respectable persons or companies could foresee the demand, could pre-occupy the ground, and could thus afford, not only security for the visitors and for the honour of the metropolis, but data for the plans and arrangement of visitors before they set out. For example, railway companies might devise and announce the outline of trains and tariffs, to be adhered to for a certain season-say from April to September inclusive, or even longer. Steam-boat companies may lay out combined routes and excursions, on fixed plans, likewise at fixed charges. Ommibuses [Omnibuses] and cabs might get them- [themselves] selves registered for the Exposition, with very intelli- [until- intelligible] gible [Bible] routes and tables of charge; inns might adopt the like systematic frankness; theatres, the like. An intel- [intelligent] ligent [lent] speculator could not perform a more useful ser- [se- service] vice than in organising an effective staff of guides and interpreters, the latter divided into languages, with certified qualifications and fixed charges. Clear intelli- [until- intelligibleness] gibleness [nobleness] and fixed charges would be the vital principle of all such arrangements; but the more they were made in concert the better; and in all cases, both specu- [spec- speculators] lators [Lats] and organizing public would find a great advantage in having the sanction of the Commissioners. We are confident that a large degree of the good feeling which will attend the Exposition and the memory of it-much of its commercial, political, and social advantage-will depend upon foresight and attention in these respects; while foresight and attention can unquestionably supply all that is wanted.-Spectator. FRENCH PREPARATIONS FOR THE EXHIBITION OF 1851.- [W] The energy and spirit with which the French manufac- [manufacture- manufacturers] turers [turners] and artists have entered upon the great competition invited by this nation, areat [great] the present moment embodying themselves in a form interesting and peculier. [peculiar] Every one of course expects that the great industrial chiefs of France are preparing the choicest products of skill to place by the side of those sent by all nations; but few will be prepared to read that a special class of agents-we scarcely what English word will convey the notion of their duty, the French call them preposes-will not only be selected, but expressly got up to accompany the specimens and wares which France is to send hither next spring. The class of preposes is more especially instituted for the advan [advance] of that important class of exhibitors whose members, whilst sending probably a greater aggregate of specimens to the exhibition than the large fabricant, [fabrication] are individually unre- [under- unrepresented] presented by a special agent or correspondent in London, and who, without the intervention of such an order as that we are describing, would be placed in the alternative of entering on the competition at a cost of personal super- [superintendence] intendence [intended] not justified by the commercial importance of their products, or abstaining from it altogether. The duty of the preposes will be to familiarise themselves by personal study with the objects to be exhibited, to receive from their producers the indication of their peculiar character, their relative position to articles of a similar character already in the market, to learn the various conditions under which they are admis- [Adams- admissible] sible into the several commercial countries of the world. It will be seen that a main portion of this duty will have to be discharged at Paris; this done, and the goods further catalogued, insured and made ready for insurance and the custom-house, it will be the office of the preposes to accompany them to London, superintend their removal to the space assigned them in the great building. They will then have an opportunity of displaying their tastes in the appropriation of the space assigned by the commissioners, in turning its capabilities to the best account, and in the special arrangement of the goods entrusted to them. The preposes are instituted to form an independent order, so that every exhibitor may count on being represented by a special agent, at an expense proportioned to the extent of his own exhibition. To raise up such an order, however, who will have to compete with the well-travelled, acute, and expe- [exe- experienced] rienced [experienced] agents of the large manufacturers of Paris in all the arts by which the utilities or excellencies of works of skill are to be brought out clear and full before the public, de- [demands] mands [sands] not only careful selection of ability, but even consi- [cons- considerable] derable [desirable] training. Quick perception, diplomatictact, [diplomatic tact] pleasing exterior, and winning ad may all be neutralised byone [bone] ill-chosen word, while a real English cold would lay up a Frenchman not accustomed to our changeable climate. The selected candidates will then receive instructions on the general character of the exhibition, and of their relation to it, from the commercial juries and local committees in France; but their special training will be conducted under the superintendence of a committee or society, called the Union of Industry. Teachers of English have already com- [commenced] menced [mended] courses of instruction, having especial reference to the language of commercial intercourse and the civilities of the show-room. Others explain the peculiarities of our trading customs and views, monies, standards of weight and measure, &c. But as nothing conveys so practical a knowledge as contact and experience, the preposes will pass a month or two of the coming winter in London, to under- [understand] stand our ways, breathe our smoke and fog, and learn to respect our prejudices. They will form one association, an emulous [employs] band of young negociants; [negotiates] in England, however, they do not propose to exhibit anything like the exclusive- [exclusiveness] ness of an anlar. [alar] They will be recommended and introduced to private families under the guarantee of the elder union of industry, and our informant, in his memorandum, has ventured to hint that their residence may give occasion to amities more tender than those of commerce, and whose happy feces [fees] may stretch far beyond the great exhibition of 1851. - SEIZURE OF SMUGGLED ToBacco.-On [Tobacco.-On] Friday last, the Custom House officers boarded a billy-boy, in Goole dock, belonging to the port of Goole and called the Samuel and Susannah, which was supposed to be laden with flint. On strict examination, however, there were found on board, secreted under the flints, abont [about] 7 tons of tobacco. Of this, 3 tons 10 cwt consisted of leaf tobacco, in an mmmanufac- [manufacture- mm manufactured] tured [cured] state, and 3 tons 10 cwt of stalk tobacco brought over for the pu of snuff making, which is prohibited. During the search, the captain made off, and up the middle of this week had not been discovered. The two men, and the captain's wife, and they were taken before Lord Beaumont, at Carlton Hali, [Hail] on last, by whom they were remanded until that day week for further examination. The captain is owner of half of the vessel, and if he had been fortunate enough to escape de- [detection] tection [section] there were two horses in readiness to convey the vessel towards Leeds. James Searles, [Sales] the pedestrian, is still prosecuting his arduous feat with unabated vigour. He has now com- [completed] pleted [plated] nearly one-half his task, having walked, up to last evening at midnight, 432 miles. He is still in the enjoyment of good health and spirits, and confident hopes are entertained of his success,-Liverpool Mercury of yesterday. MysTERIOUS [Mysterious] CIRCUMSTANCE.-On Wednesday evening the body of a man was found on Dartmoor, near Merivale, about five miles from Tavistock; and from a variety of cir- [circumstances] oumstances [circumstances] it is generally believed that he came to his death by Violent means, His forehead was smashed, in addition to other injuries. Some money was found in his pocket, and some lying on the ground; it is therefore imagined- [imagined as] as the body was warm when it was discovered-that the rson [son] or persons were alarmed in the midst of their mur- [Mr- murderous] lerous [Leroy] intentions, and were obli [able] to fly before they had time to rob their victim. The deceased was recognised as a labourer in the neighbourhood.- [neighbourhood] Western Luminary. Loss OF THE NEW ZEALAND aT SEA. The steameF [steamer] William Jolliffe, from Havre, has brought two ships' boats, three sails, one awning, six pistols, six oars, two compasses, one lamp, one speaking trumpet, and a medicine chest, belonging to the vessel New Zealand, of London, lately burnt at sea, and landed bya [by] French vessel at Havre, together with the captain and crew, who were picked up by the sume [sum] vessel at sea. Whilst the late attack upon Marshal Haynau [Hannah] is still a theme of controversy amongst the London journals, the unlucky general has fared no better in Germany than he did in Southwark. At Cologne the mob surrounded his hotel, and forced him to quit the place, and in more than one town on the continent travellers have been mistaken for the Austrian woman flogger, and treated with great insult and indignity, The Pope has named a committee to take into considera- [consider- consideration] tion [ion] the best steps to be adopted relative to the transport ae pia [pi] of Roman man to the London exhibition GHAM [HAM] CAUGHT FISHING WITH AN LORD BROU [BRO] ILLEGAL NET. In consequence of the information communicated to a number of rod fishers, members of the Eaden and Eamont Angling Association, residing at Penrith and in the neighbourhood, that a number of men in the em- [employ] ploy of Lord Brougham had, about a week ago, been seen netting in the river Eamont, in the preserves of the Association with an illegal net, and that they were accompanied by his lordship and party, the rod fishers determined to surprise his lordship and his men, and laid their plans for that purpose. Accordingly, on Monday last, eleven of the fishermen repaired to below Giant's Cave, at a place called Barrick's Stream, in the Eamont, on the estate of Sir G. Musgrave, opposite to Nine Kirk Holme, where they conjectured Lord Brougham and his men would cast their net. The fishermen lay in ambush among tufts of whins [wins] and other brushwood by the margin of the stream from nine in the morning till near three in the afternoon. They were then about to give up the watch for the day, but by the advice of one of them they lay in wait a little longer, and at ten minutes past three in the afternoon Lord Brougham's netters made their appear- [appearance] ance [once] exactly at the place where the fishermen expected they would come. Presently two carriages drove up to the brink of the river, in which were Lord Brougham, the Marquis of Douro, William Brougham, Esq., and several ladies, amongst whom, we believe, were Lady Brougham, Lady Malet, [Male] and Mrs. W. Brougham. With- [Without] out loss of time Lord Brougham's men plunged into the stream and cast their net. The fishermen saw all that was going on, but ere a draw was made, seven of them rushed out of ambush, and plunged into the river with their clothes on, nearly neck deep, and laid hold of the net. It is impossible to describe accurately the despe- [deep- desperate] rate struggle which ensued. One party pulled one way, the other another way; then down went one, and ano- [an- another] ther [the] and another, time after time, over head in the water, till Johnny Peerith [Perth] pulled out his knife, which he gave to Sir G. Musgrave's gamekeeper, and he, with the aid of another of his comrades who had a knife, succeeded in cutting about eight yards of the net away. Old John Robson clung to it till he was dragged out of the water by it on the Eden-hall side. Although amongst such a host of enemies, on gaining ferra [ferry] firma [firm] he threw up his hat, and challenged any one of the party to single fistic [fist] combat. While this was going on, Lord Brougham and the Marquis of Douro were shouting and using threats of a most serious character. Robson having been allowed to cross the river to his noble master, the com- [combatants] batants [bat ants] departed each their respective ways home, the Penrith party with one part of the net, and Lord Brougham and his party with the other part of it. This circumstance has caused considerable sensation at Pen- [Penrith] rith [with] and in the neighbourhood. The Brougham party have laid informations [information] and obtained summonses for assaults, and the Association have done the like, for using an illegal net, so that the facts of the whole transaction will come out before the magistrates.-Sun. a CHARGE OF MANSLAUGHTER AGAINST TWO MEN AND A FEMALE.-On Monday an inquest was held at St. George's Hospital, on the body of George Fox, aged 30, who died in consequence of injuries received in a desperate attack which was made upon him by several persons, two of whom, Robert Hayes and George Stevens (moulders at a factory), with the wife of the latter, are in custody on the charge of having been accessory tohis [this] death, and havebeen [have been] remanded by Mr. Burrell, at the Westminster Police Court. On Tues- [Tuesday] day evening week, about half-past five o'clock, the deceased was on his way home to Eccleston-place, when a little girl of Stevens happened to bowl her hoopagainst [hoop against] the di who took it up. Btevens [Stevens] went up to him and threatened to punch his (deceased's) head, who replied that if he did he (deceased) would serve him in the same way. They then exchanged blows. While this was taking place Stevens's wife rushed out of a beershop [beer shop] and struck at the deceased right and left. The deceased, in his defence, gave Mrs. Stevens a severe blow in her face, which caused the blood to flow. She instantly seized hold of him by the hair of his head with both her hands, and dragged him across the road. At the same time Stevens, Hayes, and two other men, at once struck the deceased about the head and body, from the effects of which deceased fell back over the shafts of a cart. When on the ground Mrs. Stevens repeatedly dashed his head against the ground. He succeeded in getting up, when he was again attacked by Hayes and Stevens. The The former knocked deceased down, who again rose. The assault was continued, and eventually Hayes seized hold of the deceased round the waist and flung him to the ground, at the same time falling upon him. While down Mrs. Stevens held his head, and he was struck under the right ear by Hayes. Some one said deceased was insensible, when Hayes observed that he was only faint, and that when he got up he would serve him out again, Deceased was taken to St. George's Hospital, bleeding from the ears and mouth. Both deceased and his antagonists had been drinking. Mr. Henry Gray, house-surgeon at the hospital, said that de- [Dews] was insensible when admitted, He died on Friday morning. Verdict, Manslaughter against H. Hayes, George Stevens, and Catherine Stevens, his wife, who were committed. FatTaL [Fatal] ACCIDENT aT PoRTLAND [Portland] Convict ESTABLISH- [ESTABLISHMENT] MENT.-On [MEN.-On .-On] Saturday morning a number of convicts were at work in the stone quarries, for the purpose of supplying material for the construction of the breakwater at Portland . A powerful crane of a peculiar construction is em- [employed] ployed [played] at che works the machinery of this was not pro- [properly] perly [reply] attended to, and the whole frame work of this pon- [on- ponderous] derous [murderous] machine fell, by which three of the convicts were killed on the spot, and 14 others seriously wounded of the latter, three or four are not expected to live. The number of convicts at present in the establishment is 825. PaRTIAL [Partial] DESTRUCTION OF THE LONDON CorN [Corn] Ex- [Exchange] CHANGE,--On [On] Thursday morning one of the most destruc- [district- destructive] tive [tie] fires which has been known for many years broke out in Mark-lane, City, contiguous to the Corn Exchange. The fire was discovered by the police on duty by flames issuing from No. 50, Mark-lane, occupied by Messrs. Allnutt [Walnut] and Arboino [Robin] wine and spirit merchants. The building is very extensive, and is also occupied by Ashlin [Ashing] and Son, corn merchants; Burne, wine and spirit mer- [Mr- merchant] chant ditto a M 'Kenzie [Jennies] r. White ; anye [any] an erby [Derby] Jo) Sadgrove, [Sad grove] solicitors, occupying a mente. [monte] 'Adjoining to this isthe [other] Corn Exchange. An rm was given at the Watling-street station, when Mr. Braidwood sent expresses to the different stations for the brigade, but before their arrival the flames had obtained such an ascendancy that all hope of saving the premises was gone, and the main object was to save those adjoining and the Corn Exchange; but, notwithstanding the exertions of the firemen and a t number of men, the fire com- [communicated] municated [communicated] to the rear in Seething-lane, to Nos. 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, and extended to Messrs. Hayter, army factors, No. 52. At ten o'clock Mr. Braidwood returned to the station to give further instructions, as the fire was burning fiercely at the rear of the Corn Exchange. At that time the fire was somewhat got under, but still burning in a most alarming manner. The military from the Tower were ordered out to keep the ground. Up to twelve o'clock the fire continued its ravages, and then was brought under subjection. but not before great damage had been done to the Corn Exchange. The consternation of the clerks and merchants, as they arrived, baffles all description. Up to twelve o'clock such vague rumours as to the cause of the fire were afloat that nothing like an accurate opinion could be given. The fire occurring at daylight prevented the flames from being seen at any distance but, notwithstand- [not withstand- notwithstanding] ing the wind was low, a quantity of half-burnt paper was picked up in Smithfield. The damage up to twelve o'clock was estimated at more than 100,000. PRICE OF SHARES. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20. The Share Market has been very animated during the week, and most stocks have improved. The meeting of the Leeds and Thirsk Company passed off well; and the ar- [arrangements] rangements [arrangements] entered into have given confidence to buyers. The stock has improved from 8 to 11 per share. The market in London to-day was quiet, and shares on the average close, flat, and in favour of the buyer. Consols [Console] are better in consequence of a large purchase made in the afternoon. Local stock are wanted at the quotations. FRED. TURNER. Lon . 8 é Fa a) PRICE Sa 2 NAME OF RAILWAY.

LEEDS aND [and] THIRSK Rattway.-A [Railway.-A] special mee [me] of this company was held at Leedson [Leeds] Monday. Mr. Marshall presided. e Chairman said, that of the three subjects which the meeting was assembled to consider, the most important was that which stood first, namely, the terms unter [under] which they would issue the shares, under their act of 1849, to the extent required for furnishing the additional capital necessary to complete their line but as at the last meeting the shareholders appointed a committee to enquire into the management of the line, he thought it would be advisable that the meeting should first of all be informed of the result of that enquiry. After the secretary had read the report, Mr. Newsam, in reply to a question, stated that the committee had visited every station, and found that by the establishment of an agency to collect goods an increase of the traffic might be expected at nearly every one. After diligent enquiry, the committee came to the following unanimous resolutions That, in their opinion the Leeds and Thirsk Railway possesses within its reach a local traffic-more especially in minerals, mer- [Mr- merchandize] chandize, [chandler] and manure-considerably beyond what is now realized, [realised] and which they think ought by this time to have been more extensively developed than it now is. 'That, from the examinations and enquiries made, the traffic ma ment [men] up to the present time appears to have been inefficient, and has not secured to the line the full advan- [advance- advantages] tages [ages] which belong to it. He did not think it advisable to lay all the evidence they had collected before the pro- [proprietor] rietary [proprietary] he thought it would suffice if they apprised the board of it-(hear, hear)-and left the to take those steps which were found really to the advantages of the shareholders generally. (Applause.) The committee thought the management wholly Chairman thought the committee should give their report in writing, in order that those who had the management of the line might have the opportunity of giving their answer to the allegations made against them. (Applause.) Another long discussion ensued, in which Mr. R. Jowitt, Mr. Farsyde, [Farmers] Mr. Stables, the Chairman, Mr. Durham, and Mr. Newsam took part, the last complaining that in important negociations [association] with other companies the care i responsibility of making vital arrangements had been left to Mr. Tennant and Mr. Cash, instead of some of the directors lending their influence. The Chairman said, he would press as a motion that the committee should put into writing what they had to say upon the subject, in order that it might be printed and cir- [circulated] culated [calculated] among the shareholders, so that the directors might put into the same form what they or their officers had to say in reply. (Hear, hear.) r. Farsyde [Farmers] seconded it. Mr. Powell and other members of the committee objected to this, as it would place them in a position hostile to the board. Mr. Stables thought every object they had in view would be fully answered by adopting the report of the directors, and moved- That the report of the directors in referance [reference] to the proceedings of the traffic committee be re- [received] ceived [received] and adopted and that the board be requested to ive [vie] their attention to the various points suggested whether in referance [reference] to the managing staff, or to the general arrangements for developing traffic. Mr. R. W. Jackson, solicitor, of Durham, seconded the proposition, and the Chairman having withdrawn his proposition, that moved by Mr. Stables was put and carried xem. [em] dis.-Mr. Ten- [Tennant] nant, traffic manager, replied to Mr. Newsam, after which resolutions were passed adopting the report, and conveying the best thanks of the meeting to the com- [committee] mittee [matter] for the labour they had taken in the investigation, and for the valuable hints they had given to the board. After some discussion resolutions were passed to the effect thatso [that] many of the preference fifth shares as have not been issued be offered to the shareholders in the proportion of one preference fifth share to every 40 of nominal capital held by them; that such shares shall (sub- [subject] ject [jet] to the payment of the dividends on the existing pre- [preference] ference [France] shares), be entitled toa [to] preference dividend of 7 cent per annum for seven years certain, from the Ist [Its] day of October next, on the capital from time to time paid up on them, and until such time as they are redeemed by the company; that the calls of 1 each be payable in October, 1850, in January, April, July, and Bctober, [October] 1851, and January, 1852.-The [W.-The] Chairman, in answer to Mr. Farsyde, [Farmers] said that to complete the line from Wath to Northallerton and Stockton (in the manner proposed by the directors) would cost 225,000 and, in reply to Mr. Constable, he said the cost of the line from Wath to Northallerton would be 66,000. After several names had been proposed, and one or two gentlemen had declined serving, the following were elected unanimously as additional directors -Joseph Brook, Esq., of Huddersfield; Thomas Constable, Esq., solicitor, of Otley James Kitson, Esq., of Leeds; James Stable, Esq., of Leeds, and Thomas Newsom, Esq., of Leeds. This would increase the number of directors to fourteen. It was then resolved, that of these new directors one should go out of office by ballot in 1851, two in 1852, and two in 1853. After a vote of thanks to the chairman the proceedings terminated. BLACKBURN, BOLTON, CLITHEROE, AND WEST YORK- [YORKSHIRE] SHIRE RaILway [Railway] ComMPaNny.-The [Company.-The] difference which has existed between the above company and the East Lanca- [Lance- Lancashire] shire Company since the opening of the Clitheroe branch has been settled by the railway commissioners. Their decision ras [as] received yesterday, and a follows -The olton [Bolton] Company is to pay a two-miles tollage [Collage] npon [upon] n- gers [hers] and traffic y onveyed [conveyed] over the East Lan [An] i Fine to itheroe, [there] but passengers can be booked to and from Clitheroe at the Daisy Field Station; that passengers coming from Preston, and wishing to go to Clitheroe, &c., must be landed at the Darwen-street Station; and that all r passengers conveyed by the Bolton and Clitheroe line for any town on the route of the East Lancashire Railway must be set down at the Blackburn Station of that company. Thus the decision of the commissioners is upon equity and it is hoped, for the good of the public, that the two com- [company] pane will carry out the system of reciprocity marked out y the commissioners.-Preston Chronicle. Sout [Out] Eastern special general meeting of the South Eastern Railway Company was held on Thurs- [Thursday] day, at the Bridge-house Hotel, London-bridge, to consider the resolutions passed at the special general meeting of the company held on the 15th day of August, 1850, providing that the holders of the Consolidated South Eastern Rail- [Railway] way, No. 8and [and] No. 4 Stocks, commonly known, before their conversion into stock, as the No. 3 and No. 4 shares of this company, be admitted to a participation in all divi- [div- dividends] dends [ends] to be thereafter declared of ptofits [profits] of the under- [undertaking] taking, including the dividend for the half-year ending on the 3lst [last] of July, 1850 and that the the said Consolidated South Eastern Railway No. 3 and No. 4 Stocks shall forth- [forthwith] with cease to be designated as Consolidated South Eastern Railway No. 3 and No. 4 Stocks, and shall be designated as the Consolidated South Eastern Railway Stock, and shall form part of the general capital stock of the com- [company] pany. [any] There was a numerous attendance of proprietors. e directors, on entering, were greeted with mingled cheers and hisses. The former predominated. The reso- [rose- resolutions] lutions [Lotion] at the special meeting were agreed to, with only two exceptions, and were received with loud cheering. The business of the ordinary meeting was then proceeded with. The chairman congratulated the shareholders on the increase in the traffic on the main line, and moved the adoptions of the reports and payment of a dividend at the rate of three per cent per annum. After a somewhat lengthened discussion the report was adopted, and the reso- [rose- resolution] lution [Lotion] passed to pay the dividend after the opening of the Ashford and Hastings branch, or such other time as the directors might think fit. After the usual vote of thanks to the chairman, the meeting broke up. - -- Sa Bank OF ENGLAND.-The half-yearly court was held on Thursday, at the bank, when the governor stated that the nett profits for the half-year ending the 25th of A t last amounted to 535,342. Out of this a dividend of three-and-a-half per cent, free of income-tax, and leaving 25,991 to be added to the rest; making that latter sum 3,027,309, was declared. The dividend warrants will be issued on and after the 11th of October. Ten Lives Lost on THE EasTERN [Eastern] RAILWAY. - A melancholy occurrence took place on Thursday morn- [morning] ing, about half a mile eastward of the Brentwood station, on the Colchester line, by which ten platelayers, servants of the company, lost their lives. It appears that these men, with about forty of their fellow-workmen, had just unloaded a train of ballast trucks, which was on the down- [Downing] line, and to allow the engine and empty trucks to move on ste aside, some of them between the metals of the up-line, probably forgetting that the first up passenger train was at that moment due. This train arrived punctual to its time. The moment that the engine-driver perceived the men on the line he whistled loudly, and the and firemen applied their breaks but the poor fellows evidently became paralysed, and before the train could be stopped ten unfortunate creatures were run over and killed on the spot. The engine of the ballast train was blowing off its steam, which may perhaps have prevented the men from hearing the approach of the passenger train. A fog also prevailed at the time.

PEEL MONUMENT.- [MONUMENT] WHAT IT OUGHT TO BE TO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE. However this subject may be regarded by some -whether they look upon its discussion at present as premature or not, I think it is one of peculiar interest to many, particularly the humbler contributors to the ument [amend] Fund. monuments have been erected to bad or indifferent men, their legitimate object I conceive to be to record what is great in character or noble in deed -to give form and permanence to the expression of approbation and regard for eminent services-to emble- [emblem- emblematise] matise, [mates] as far a8 man is able, his sentiments and feelings towards those who have contributed largely to his hap- [happiness] piness. [pines] By thus hallowing the memories of the great, and consequently affording a strong incentive to others to emulate their example, society confers upon itself and on its benefactors an immense benefit. For few men, I believe, do good merely for goodness, sake. A thirst for fame-a longing desire to receive the homage and applause of mankind-an ambition to fill a page in the world's history-to breathe in marble, and to live in canvass-have ever formed the grand motive power that has impelled men on to greatness. In anticipation of these marks of esteem, how many have denied them- [themselves] selves all present means of enjoyment Hence the necessity of monuments being dignified and exclusive in their character, and in every sense worthy of the object they are intended to commemorate. Now, it has always appeared to me that the most suitable form for a monument is that which bears the greatest relationship and resemblance to the object it is intended to honour. For instance, if we wish to represent what is great in character or noble in deed-or, in other words, the highest qualities that a being in the terrestial [terrestrial] world can be possessed of-we should choose that form which will best suggest greatness and nobility-the high- [highest] est that matter can be made to assume-which is that of man, for manalone [Malone] of all created beings and thingsis [thing sis] made after God, and endowed with God-like attributes. The form of man is that which has been adopted, by all nations, in all ages, to represent great humanity. The Greeks and Romans realized [realised] their sages and heroes in marble, and worshipped them as Gods, and in modern times every truly devoted people has chosen it as best calculated to do honour to the memories of its patriots ; and gentlemen of fortune and taste, call forth the artistic genius of refined and polished nations to adorn the galleries of their halls with the various forms of great- [greatness] ness and beauty. Our daily life proves it to be the only one consonant with true feeling. The doting parent -the attached friend-the affectionate lover- [love reach] each seeks the image of the object of his attachment at the hands of the skilful artist. As to the claims of Sir Robert Peel to a monument, not a word need be said. They are all but universally admitted. Almost all classes concur in eulogising him, who, in endeavouring to promote the interests of his country has, says Lord Brougham, made sacrifices, compared with which all the sacrifices ever made by a sense of duty at the hands of a public man, sink into utter insignificance. And it is only to that deep love of country which maust [must] ever fill a generous people with admiration and reverence, that we can trace the motives of the acts of his extraordinary political career. Many and great are the services of Sir Robert to his country, but the last and greatest act of his life-the untaxing [taxing] of the nation's food, has earned for him an undying fame, and we can gay, with Rousseau, when speaking of another great man, C'éloit C'Elliot] un homme [home] si aimable [amiable] et si heureusement [bereavement] né, que, pour l'honneur [l'honour] de l'espece [l'specie] humaine, [human] je la croirois [crisis] tonjours [tongues] bonne [bone] conserver. [Conservative] Yet, what strange things do some people propose to erect as monuments to this distinguished states- [statesman] man; baths and washhouses, parks, halls, and alms- [almshouses] houses, are in one town or another recommended as the most suitable forms for commemorating the great ser- [se- services] vices of Sir Robert Peel; what a medley How won- [wonderful] derful [wonderful] must have been his character and services if these are the best of shapes of commemorating them Do these represent greatness of character and nobility of action No they have about the same resemblance and relationship to each other and to Sir Robert Peel as a haystack ora windmill has, and would, if erected or formed with the name of Peel prefixed to them, be no more monuments than streets with the same name, or beer- [beer houses] houses with the same title daubed upon their sign- [signboards] boards. If we acknowledge the principle, we shall find, that, what one town calls a monument, another would erect a monument wpor. [poor] Manchester has its Peel's Park, and yet the Manchester people talk about erect- [erecting] ing a monument to Peel in it-a monument upon a monument how anomalous The fact is, baths, parks, halls, and almhouses, [almshouses] with the name of Peel prefixed to them, are still but baths, parks, &c. Were these forms proposed on the ground of expe- [exe- expediency] diency [deny] there would be some apology for their proposers, but they are not, but as the best we can have. Alas for monumental art. I can only trace the origin of this idea of making every thing serve some directly utilitarian purpose,-an idea so prevalent amongst us at present,-to that low system of socialism turned up on to the face of society by the late continental revolutions, which makes no pro- [provision] vision for art,-acknowledges no higher object of life, than the satisfaction of our mere bodily wants. There is this difference between them and us we wish to be thought as acknowledging higher objects by prefixing to our contrivances for ministering to our corporal wants and desires, the names of great men,- [men] calling them monuments, while they candidly declare their intention to subvert every thing that aspires to any thing beyond utility. We wish to adopt their plans, but retain our own names-have a bath, and call ita [it] monument. To use a vulgar saying, Kill two birds with one stone. A VOICE FROM THE MECHANICS' INSTITUTION. Huddersfield, Sep. 19, 1850. PUBLIC BATHS FOR HUDDERSFIELD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE Str-Will [St-Will] you allow me a small space in your paper, in answer to a paragraph in your last, signed A Sub- [Subscriber] scriber to the Peel Monument, recommending the committee to erect baths and wash-housesy. [wash-house] First, we ought to be satisfied that those we have are sufficiently supported, which, on enquiry, will be found capable of accommodating more than have hitherto attended them. They may be useful in large towns, but to spend a large sum in erecting others and a house for a person to take charge of them appears very doubtful of ever paying expenses. If not, I dont [don] think the town would pay the loss. Therefore, they would have to be con- [converted] verted [averted] into something else. Why want baths and wash-houses when you can have good water in your own dwellings at a reasonable charge and if people are disposed to be clean they may, at less expense and trouble. Some say let us have a park but as it is im- [in- impossible] possible to raise funds to purchase one, we need not say more about it. I believe the committee have decided to erect a column with winding staircase in- [inside] side; but, as lam for something useful, allow me to suggest to the Commissioners a Town Hall with niches in front and both sides at a cost not exceeding 5,000, so constructed as it could be enlarged according to the merease [measure] of population. The cellars and perhaps an office or two might be let off, and the hall for all public purposes, would be more than equal to the interest on the amount. If this plan were adopted, I think the committee might be induced to have astatue, [statue] and by permission, place it in front of the hall. And we hope our towns- [townspeople] people will liberally aid them in their efforts to raise a monument that will do honour to the lamented states- [statesman] man, and be a credit to the town. Yours, &c, A SUBSCRIBER, AND ONE OF THE COMMITTEE. September 20, 1850. SUSPECTED PoIsONING [Poisoning] IN CARMARTHENSHIRE.-The re- [retired] tired and pretty little town of Laugharne, in the county of 'armarthen, [Carmarthen] has, during the week, been thrown into astate [state] of great alarm and excitement, in consequence of a case of poisoning having taken place in the household of J. H. Severn, Esq., of Brixton. The circumstances are fraught with very great suspicion, and there is strong pre- [presumptive] sumptive [consumptive] evidence against the party suspected, who, though not yet in custody, her motions are ri idly watched, and she herself his under st Pucsday [Tuesday] week, two of the female domestics of Mr. Severn were taken suddenly ill, after having partaken of some broth, one of whom, Rebecca Uphill, the housemaid, died the same evening, and the other became dreadfully ill. The broth, it appeared, was prepared by the cook ; but, we are informed she did not partake of any herself. The deceased eat very heartily of the broth, but the other servant, after having eaten a spoonful or two, remarked that although it was very niceit [nice] left a dreadful burning sensation in her throat. e re- [remainder] mainder [remainder] of the broth, it appears, was thrown to the bigs, [big] one of which, having nearly eaten the whole, immediately , and four others e ill, While the body of the deceased was laid out, previously to its heing [being] placed in the coffin, the party suspected qent, [sent] it is reported, into the room to see the corpse, when she immet [Emmett] iately [lately] exclaimed, 'Oh, this is the devil who tried to get me out of my ser- [se- service] vice.
