A gay Lothario of about 70, lead to Hymen's altar a blooming bride of 26, and a cab was put in requisition to bear them to the hal- [al- hallowed] lowed shrine. In order that the animal '(ene [one] of the true Rozinante [Remnant] breed) aight [eight] do his work in gallant style, he was loosed 'frem [free] his straps and treated to an extra quartern, [quarter, while the hero of the whip quaffed foam- [foaming] ing ale. Sad to relate, however, a luckless wight, in the shape of a school-boy, anxious to investigate, and see if the locomotive powers of the vehicle were on the most approved principles, but, rery [very] deficient 'in a knowledge of mechanical laws, epplied [applied] a feree [free] to the-cab which completely overcame the resistance of friction. The direction taken by the car- [carriage] riage [ridge] was down a slight ient [sent] of about 5-in-10, to that the accelerated motion was tremendous, 'and if there had been no impediment would soon have been lost to its intended occupants but a frewring [wringing] stone wall which again wreted, [wretched] and the happy pair started off to tie anether [another] and more important kxot.

By this time Moore's celebrated ille [ill] Band was in attendance, and its rains having the usual effect upon so young and ami- [mi- amiable] able an assembly, the whole mixed up in a merry dance, until the shades of evening drew nigh, when the company, thinking of a home, separated, each highly pleased with their evening's diversion. 7 ' FeLoxy [Felony] By A SeRvANT.-On [Servant.-On] Thursday last, at the Guildhall, before Joseph Starkey, Esq., Superintendant [Superintendent] Thomas brought up 'Sarak [Sarah] Gelder, on a charge of stealing from her late master, Mr. J.

It appeared from the evidence of Mrs. that the prisoner who was cook, left her ployment [Parliament] 7 weeks ago, and was married the week follow- [following] ing. On examining her linen Mrs. Wigney [Wine] found that several articles were missing, and on Wednesday afternoon information was given to Superintendant [Superintendent] Thomas, who accompanied Mrs. Wigney [Wine] to the house of the prisoner's father-in-law, where she had been living since her marriage.

THE DISTRIBUTION OF PRIZES, The midsummer distribution of prizes, to the youths educated in this excellent church scholastic establishment, took place on Thursday mérning [morning] last, in the lecture room of the establishment, which was tastefully decorated with flowérs [flowers] and evérgreens [evergreens] 'for fhe [he] vccasion. [occasion] 'There' was alarge [large] and fashionable attendance of ladies, whose presence im- [in- imparted] parted to the proceedings a degree of interest which, in some measure, compensated for the small attendance of the male. sex. Among the visitors were the Rev. Josiah Bateman, vicar. of Huddersfield, and the president of 'the Institution; Dr. Taylor, the Rev. Packer, the Rev. J. W. Cockshott, B.A., (one of the examiners,) the Rev. Jesse Bellamy, in-' cumbent [cum bent] of Lindley ;-the Rev. Mr. Binstead, incumbent of Lockwood; the Rev. Mr. Hulbert, William Barker, Esq., (hon. sec.,) the Rev.

[ion] Prayer haviag [having] been offered up, The PRESIDENT (the Rev. J. Bateman) céngratulated [congratulated] the' company assembled on the success which had attended the course of study during the past 'half-year, 'and whidh [which] had, 'raised high hopes in the council, managers, masters, and. 'pupils. -He remarked on 'the -coincidence, that this day was the one 'from which our beloved Queen dated her acces- [acres- accession] sion [ion] to the throne; who, under God's blessing, would, he trusted, long reign over them for he felt quite certain that the principles on 'which that school was conducted were those of loyalty te the Church and to the Queen, which trusted might ever remain joined, thé [the] one-te the other, for he daily became more and more convinced that educa- [Edgar- education] tion, [ion] to be really.valuable, must be conjoined with religion ; that mere secular education was, on the whole, calculated to do mischief rather than good, and though it had been eaid, [said] and might again be said, hat the educational mind of Huddersfield was in favour of secular education, he (the vicar) entirely-denied it and he further believed, that those in Huddersfield, who had long, and calmly, and carefully considered the matter, were in favour of an education con-; nected [connected] with religion, and -he sincerely trusted it would always beso. [best] (Cheers.) '41 added that, at their last rural- [rural deanery] deanery meeting, when there were forty clergymen present, from this town and neighbourhood, he propounded' this question to them Is there a clergyman present who is in favour of secular education apart from religion He waited for the response, which was from all an emphatical [emphatically] no, no, no. It was the general feeling of all these clergymen that while education ought to be exten ed, [extent ed] its extension must. be combined with religion. was secured in this school, and he trusted ever would be, and that the children sent there would be instructed and trained in these principles which their parents had received and still held. The education of youth was likened by the speaker to thedaying [dying] of a foundation for a building; if it had not a good foundation it never could be permanent; therefore it was that this school, being 'based upon -true liberty, but not bigotry, would go on progressing, ana prove a successful agent-for that class of youth arded [added] for which it had been designed. The président [president] proceeded to express his abiding interest in'the-suecess [in'the-success] of the school, the operations of which he considered most important in. connection with the Church in Huddersfield, and he called on its friends to stand by it, and thus build up the influence . of the Church around them. After remarking on the beauty of the decorations round the rosm, [rose] and the still more 'beatttifal [beautiful] galaxy of ladies who graced it by their presence, he called on those around Lim, [Lime] now that the sea was calm, and the wind quiet, and while the vessel was sailing very pleasantly, to wish the vessel God-speed to her destined arbour, and do all they could towards promoting the institution's usefulness among their 'friends. The PRINCIPAL, (the Rev. W. J. Read, B.A.;) remarked upon the pleasure he had felt in working among his young friends, which had, 'he believed, resulted in their aud [and] his own improvement. The work upon which the pupils had been engaged the past half-year had 'been more laborious than in former half-years, as finding that sufficient attention could not formerly be given to the younger boys he had, the past half-year, added an additional master, and the result 'had been altogether such as to justify him (the prin- [pain- principal] cipal) [principal] in the course he had taken. The reverend principal, r remarking on some altered arrangements in the work- [working] ing of the school, concluded by expressing his satisfaction at the general pro; of the pupils, especially in natural philosophy aud [and] Enclid, [Inclined] and in general he expressed his entire approval of the 'attention displayed by the whole of the pupils. asta [asa] Wituiam [William] ENcLtanp [England] BaRKER, [Barker] then read, with marked emphasis and discretion, Chatham's celebrated on the War of Independence, at the conclusion of which the assembly testified their approval hy marks of approbation. . e mext [next] piece read was Wolsey's Farewell, from VIII., by Master HENRY Barker, which receited, [received] as it deserved, a round of applause. Master READ next read, Tennyson's delightful poem, fhe he] Lord of Burley, in which he displayed a clear percep- [Pepper- perception] tion [ion] of the moral conveyed, and drew forth the poetic beauties of his author in a marked manner. The reading of this piece called forth, as author and interpreter deserved it should, a round of applause. The Rev. then distributed the prizés, [prizes] to the successful pupils, as follows - PRIZEMEN [Prize men] WITH PRIZES, MIDSUMMER, 1850. Read-Lord Dartmouth-Juvenal's Works and Perscus. [Persons] T.

As the several boys presen'ed [present'ed] themselves before the Principal to receive their rewards of merit, we were pleased to observe that their form-matcs [form-mats] tcstéfied [justified] their approval of the choice made by the examir [examiner s by rounds of applause. Master WILLIAM ENGLAND next recited a pas- [passage] sage from Voltaire's tragedy of Zaire, which evinced that careful atfention [attention] had been given to the cultivation of this graceful language, not only by the pupil, but also by the accomplished French master, M. Chemery. [Cherry] Dr. Ta Lor [Ta Or] expressed the great pleasure it afforded him in being present, and remarked that made by the Vicar on secular education reminded him of a cireuamstance [circumstance] connected with the recent secular education meeting in this town, doubt some gentlemen saw. his name announced in the local prints as one of the parties then present. This the speaker explained by simply observing that he was merely there as a spectator, anxious te hear all that could be said on the subject o1 education, but so far from being a supporter..of the scheme propounded by the principal speaker at that meeting, he never was ata [at] meeting in which he felt a stronger feeling-a feeling almost approaching to disgust,-at least, so far as the speaker was concerned who came to explain the Lancashire Public Schools Scheme. So far from the lecturer having convinced him (the speaker) he rather deepended [depended] the conviction which he had held strongly before, that there could be no such thing as neutrality on religious matters in carrying out the work of education. Education, he held, must be either religious or irreligious, and, 2s he preferred a religious education for his own child on the same principle would he prefer it for the child of a neig [neigh bour, [our] and he therefore gave the preference to u school wl ere religion was recog- [recon- recognised] nised [Aniseed] and taught in connection with secular matters. Dr, Taylor concluded by moving a resolution of their gratification at the progress the boys bad made the past half-year; and also expressive of thanks to the. rev. the Princi [Prince] the Vice-principal, and other masters for the pai [pair] ey had bestowed on their pupils. .. . 2 resolution was seconded by the Rev. Jesse Bellamy, and, by acclamation,'. was to by the Principal 'and the Vice-principal, (E.-Boden, Esq.)

Packer, curate of Huddersfield parish chureh, [church] and being put from the chair, was carried by acclamation. i The Rev. J. W. Cocksnorr, [Jackson] in responding, yemarked [remarked] that he and his co-examiner, the Rev. Mt. Kemp, 'had been' much pleased with the progress the pupils had made in mathematics, one of the most prominent in which depart-i ment [men] being T. Jessop, of Honley. Next in order of merit was William Barker, and amongst the youngest boys de- 'serving of honourable mention were Black and Jehn [and John] Beau-' Mont, and in the Greek testament the acquirements of Read, Jessop, and Barker were considerable. As a whole the reverend gentleman expressed himself much pleased with the result of the examination. ' The PRESIDENT explained that the other examiner, Rev. J. Kemp, B.A., curate of Birstal, [Bristol] was prevented'from 'being 'present by a pressing official engafement, [engagement] near home-; but he had addressed a letter to the Principal, apologising for his absente, [absent] and-expressive of regret that he could mot be present on that interesting occasion. that letter the' Rev. Mr. Komp [Kemp] remtrked It [remarked It] is of course out of nty [nt] power 'to speak as 'to Whether any improvement has taken' place; but this, I believe, I may with truth say, that,. taking all things (for example, the youth of the 'boys) into consideratiou, [consideration] during no part of the period' of the seven years I was at the Collegiate School would the questions have been better, if as well, answered. Iam [I am] not given to flattery, 'but I am quite sure that it is clear from their answers that no pains which could have been expended - ing, at any rate, is evident, you 'have not filled them with globules of know- ledge (if may so speak) which are intended to be repro- [report] duced [duce] in the same form in which they were given but such of the boys as are capable of it show a freedom which proves that the work ef educutien, [education] strictly so called, is going on; not the mere acquirement of knowledge; for the religious and intellectual elements are very far from being, as is too common now, nezlected. [neglected] (Applause.) The Rev. Mr. HULBERT,-in an eloquent discourse on the yursuit [pursuit] of knowledge, moved a vote of thanks to the Presi- [Press- Present] Feat, which was seconded by WILLIAM BaRKER, [Barker] Esq.

AN INCIDENT IN THE History oF Human Lire.- [Lire] There lived in the village of Wooldale, some eighteen 4 months ago, a loving couple named Banbury, who, with three children, apparently formed a happy family. One fine morning, however, Mr. Banbury was seized with an' uncontrollable itching to visit foreign parts acting upon' which, he unceremoniously left his domicile, the partner of his bosom, and all his little ones, and straightway sailed for America. Tit for tat, thought Mrs. - Banbury. So, to cheer her loneliness, in 'the absence of her bosom's lord, she accepted as a 'ledger one Mr. Sykes, a bow-legged weaver from Burn Lee; and the twain seemed to jog on very harmoniously tegether. [together] Nothing' was heard of the emigrant, and, it may be, nothing cated.' [acted] This joyous state might possibly have centinved [sentenced] ad inyini- [anyone- infinite] tem [te] had not an unlooked-for coxtra-tempsarisen [extra-temps arisen] in the per- [person] son of the 'exiled Banbury, who, anweltome [unwelcome] and unan- [nan- unannounced] nounced, [announced] (like old Lambro [Lam bro] pouncing upon Juan and Hai- [Hair- Had] dé) obtruded his now-almost-fergetten [now-almost-forgotten] features through the door-way of his once domicile, on Sunday week .i Here was a pretty fix for the lady. How happy could' I be with either, however, was evidently not her senti-. [sent] ment, [men] for she indignantly spurned her lawful husband, ' clinging with great tenacity to her second thought. Mr. Banbury's were literally rejected addresses. The poor fellow, though, deserves credit for genuine Yankee cool- [coolness] ness, for, after quietly smeking [smoking] the calumet of peace, and recounting such of his adventures in the far country as he chose to divulge, he deliberately bid good night, and walked away, perhaps meditating a speedy return to land of liberty. Curist's [Christ's] CHURCH, NEW Mi1LL.-This [Mill.-This] edifice was broken into by some hitherto undiscovered lawless 'depredators, during the night of Thursday, in last week, and a quantity of brass, in the shape of rods, candlesticks, &c., together with two surplices, carried away. A WovuLb-BE [Woeful-BE] SvicibE.-An [Service.-An] idle fellow, recently married, who for a livelihood hawks milk, and who is a step-son of John Schofield's, of Upper Bridge, having been found fault with by his parents for not evincing greater inclination for work, on Tuesday declared he would cut his throat-aye, that he would Big with the great intent, he rushed. up stairs, where doubtless now, a razor would be found. The household shrieked in dire alarm. Neighbours and constables were summoned to the dreadful scene. The rash self-murderer was followed to his lair, and, lo he was dis- [discovered] covered, demurely sat down, probably taking counsel with himself whether the incision weuld [would] give him pain 'Second thoughts are best, tis is] said at least so thought the valiant milk-seller, Ofcourse, [Of course] no repetition of the scene has 'occurred. Muzz e yvocr [cr] Docs.-A notice, issued by the Holmfirth magistrates, and dated June 15, has just been posted through the acighbourhood, [neighbourhood] cautioning all owners of dogs to keep them securely muzzled intimating to the owners of these canine nuisances, that should any casualty occur to life, limb, or property, consequent upon the neglect of such precaution, legal proceedings will be promptly issued against all offending persons.

The number of dogs constantly prowling about our streets is certainly a caution to sinners, and imperatively demands the vigilance of the tax-gatherer to demand 'tribute from whom tribute is due. At present MUNIFICENCE.-For some time past the beautiul [beautiful] church of St. Jotin, [Joint] in the new parish of Upper Thong, lias [has] been deemed incomplete without a parsonage house. 'T'o supply this deficiency, it was last week determined to purchase from J. Charlesworth, Esq., of South-house, a sufficient 'space of land, just below the church,. whereon to erect the house; and for this purpose the sum of 145 was required. To raise this amount, some of the. parishioners were called upon, on Monday last, and instantly responded by con- [contributing] tributing [contributing] upwards of 100 W] DasTaRDLY [Dastardly] ConpucT.-Abeut [Conduct.-About] two o'clock on the morm- [more- morning] ing of 'Thursday last, Mr. J. Littlewood, of Dam-house, architect, was returning home from a sale of property at Hinchliff-mill, in his gig, accompanied by Mr. C. Turner, the solicitor, when, en approaching Upper-mill, four ruffians in the shape of young'men began shouting, gesticulating, and endeavouring to frighten the horse, and this they so far succeeded m [in] doing as to cause all but an upset. of. the vehicle. Just behind the gig was Mr. Tinker, auctioneer, on horseback, who, seeing the atrocity, began to expostu- [exposed- expostulate] late with the fellows, and-was rewarded with a shower of stones This was more than flesh and blood could bear. He instantly dismounted, and, assisted by his son, suc- [such- succeeded] ceeded [needed] in capturing one rascal, and in. recognising the others. The parties reside at Upper-mill; their, names, though known to the writer, may, present at least, be withheld. -It is understood that the aggricved [aggrieved] parties have kindly consented to forego prosecuting on condition of pardon being asked and a reasonable sum of money paid into the poor-box. Of course the delinquents will jump at the chance of so easy an escape, and it is hoped behave more like reasoneble [reasonable] beings for the future. COUNTY COURT, June Yith.

This was effected, but with such injuries, arising from the dog's fangs and teeth, .as ro- [produce] duce the death of the sow on the following Deplorable as 'was the accident, and as was tiie [tie] loss to Dearnley, he called upon Hobson, and, ex- [expressing] pressing a hope that he would do something towarda [towards] making Up 'the breach, offered to exonerate fron [from] further cldim'on [claim'on] payment of a sovereign. This very reason- [reasonable] able offer defendant slighted. One Jonas Allen, a néigh- [neigh- neighbour] boux, [box] being present, observed that there was no law for pigs and Hobson echoed this strange notion, by remark- [remarking] ing, that he believed there was no law for pigs; and, therefore, he should contribute nothing. The present suit, then, was instituted to convince defendant, and all whom it may concern, that there zs a law for pigs. Damages were laid at 4.

Fatat [Fatal] AccipENntT.-A [Accident.-A] frightful occurrence took plate at Greenfield Mill, on the 12th inst., resulting in the death of an interesting lad about 13 years of age. 'fhe [he] higher mill is turnéd [turned] by 'a water wheel, the supply of water to which is regulated by what is called a roller draught. 'At the timre [time] in question the water was very low, and of cburse [course] a great part of the open framework through which 'the water ows [ow] upon the wheel was above the level of the water, though the wheel was rolting [rolling] with its usual speed just beneath. There is a small door which opens to the wheel f om a weaving room but on account of the danger ordinary work people are not allowed to open it. The lad had been collecting bobbins from some of the weavers, and was in'a very jocular mood. He had just playfully struck his mother on her back in passing her as'she was weavirig [wavering] at a very short distance from the little door. No one saw him opén [open] and pass through the little door, though he must necéssari'y [necessary'y] have done so. His cries were afterwards heard at soniv [son] distamce [distance] from the mill though unheard by the work-people, owing to the great noise. Tt must 'have been a considers bhs [bs] time before his horrible position was discovered. He had gone upon the open framework named above, 'and his leds [Leeds] had got through it and were quite fast, while the large wheel beneath kept grinding and tearing them without 'mercy. The wheel was stopped so soon as it was knowh [know] what had occurred, but [C] great part of an hour. elapsed 'béfore [before] tHe [the] lad could be liberated. The poor lad when taken home was conscious, and threw his arnis [Annis] round his mother's neck, and told her he would never do so again. The muscles and veins of his legs were missing; the bones were bare, thougt [thought] not broken, and the poor sufférer's [sufferer's] pulse could not be per- [perceived] ceived. [received] Two medical men were in attendance, and one of his legs was immediately taken eff, but within an hour he expired. SUICIDE.-On the 13th inst., in the morning, the body of Widow Wrigley, of Slack-gate, Friar Mere,..was found, without any symptoms of life, suspended by a silk handker- [handle- handkerchief] chief in an out-house immediately adjoming [adjoining] her residence. Jt is said that.she had been in a despending [depending] state of mind for a short time previously, occasioned. by one of her sons having become a race runner Her. father destroyed him- [himself] sclf [self] a long time a similar manner.. Her husband's death was also a violent one; for he was killed by falling from a hayloft. ; BARNSLEY. A CoaL-Pit [Coal-Pit] on Fire.-It will bé remembered that 75 persons lost their lives in Darley Main colliery, in January, 1849. We have again to notice a serious misfortune to the proprietors by the coal-bed taking fire. George Whiteley, who attends the cupalo [cupola] in this pit, while following his em- [employment] ployment, [Parliament] at two o'clock on the morning of Wednesday week, noticed an unusually strong current of air pass him, by which he became alarmed, thinking some of the doors which conduct the current of air had been left o m, and caused the current to take a wrong direction. He there- [therefore] fore lighted asafoty [safety] lamp, and started for the p' of making the 'doors right. He had not gone far re- [here] he heard two other men running towards him, and shouting to him to save himself,.if possible, as am explosion had taken place. He replied that aould [could] not be the case, for the cur- [current] rent of air was so strong that he could scarcely stand. They, however, weat. [West] to the bottom of the shaft, and continued for above an hour repeating the usual signal to be drawn ap out of the pit. before any one answered them. After much anxiety they were drawn out, and the workin [working] examined, when it was ascertained that the bed of coal was on fire, and raging to a great length of the face. It was found to have originated from allowing the ashes in the engine flues, which are in the workings, to accumulate. The whole of Wednesday was spent in endeavauring [endeavouring] to arrest the pro- [progress] gress [grass] of the fire, but its impetuosity increased to such an extent, that at night not less than from 500 to 700 yards of the face of the coal was in one continuous fire and such was its force, that at 9 o'clock at night there was a con- [continual] tinual [Tindal] blaze of great length from the top of the cupalo, [cupola] which came from the workings at a depth of above 100 yards. It was determined next morning to close all the roads and air-gates which led to the parts on fire, ind, if possible, prevent any air getting to it. - THE GAS QUESTION. a THE EDITQR [EDITOR] OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE. -I most respectfully beg to state that the generalit.
