MOKE [MAKE] NUISANCE.-The very important and gratifying improvements in the Reduction of Smoke which was last week referred to by the Manchester Town Council, as the result of their long-continued efforts, is entirely attributable to the introduction of the STEAM ENGINE BOILERS pnatented [patented] by W. and G. GALLO- [GALLOWAY] WAY, Engineers, of that town. From the chimneys whence the densest, blackest smoke and soot Were continually pouring, a very faint stream is now occasionally visible, even in establishments where the power is 200 horses and upwards-and this effect is the result in every case where these bcilers [boilers] are applied, besides a continued saving in fuel of one-third, and proportionate lessening of labour to the fireman. Information may be obtained on application to the patentees, and the boilers seen at work. Licenses will be granted to respectable boiler makers. Knott Mill Iron Works, Manchester, Oct. 29th, [the] 1850. AGGRESSION OF THE POPE OF ROME. T a MEETING, held at the ve HALL, HUDDERSFIELD, on the 22nd day of Novem- [November- November] ber, [be] 1850, convened by the Constable, pursuant to requi- [require- requisition] sition [sit ion] for that purpose, WILLIAM WILLANS, Esq., Constable, in the Chair, The following were agreed to - Moved by JoHN [John] Brooke, Esq. (Armitage Bridge); seconded by GEORGE MALLINsoN, [Mallinson] Esq.; and sup- [supported] ported by JosErpH [Joseph] Brook, Esq. (Greenhead). 1. That while recognising the right of our Roman Catholic fellow subjects to the free exercise of their reli- [deli- religion] gion, [Gin] this Meeting has heard with great indignation of the recent introduction into this country of a Papal Bull, by which it appears that the Pope has dared to parcel out this country into Districts-to erect these Districts into Romish [Rooms] Sees-to appoint to them Ecelesiasties [Ecclesiastics] of his own choice, who may or may not be natives of this country, or well affected to her Majesty's person and Government, and to give to those Ecclesiastics titles taken from the most important towns in this kingdom, all which we believe to be an arrogant invasion of the Supremacy of the Crown, dctrimental [detrimental] to the carrying on of the Government of this country, and pregnant with evils to our Protestant rights and liberties. Moved by the Vicar (the Rev. BATEMAN, M.A.); seconded by Dr. TayLor; [Taylor] and supported by Rev. Mr. GLENDENNING (Independent). 2. That if it could beshown,that [shown,that] the jurisdiction assumed by the Pope was no infraction of the letter of the law, yet this meeting feels well assured that that fundamental prin- [pain- principle] ciple [Copley] of the constitution is grossly violated, which declares 'that no foreign prince or potentate, spiritual or temporal, shall exercise any manner of jurisdiction or privilege, spiritual or ecclesiastical, within this realm or the dominions thereof. Moved by the Rev. F. A. (Wesleyan) seconded by J.C. Laycock, Esq.; and supported by the Rev.-Mr. Haicu [Hack] (St. Paul's.) 3. That this meeting regards the proceedings of the Pope as an assumption of that ecclesiastical dominion over all classes from which, through God's infinite mercy, and after most painful struggles, our land was delivered at the glorious Reformation. Moved by the Rev. R. SKINNER (Independent); se- [seconded] conded [Conder] by JosEPH [Joseph] BaTLEy, [Batley] Esq. (Armitage Bridge) ; and supported by the Rev. J. Stacey (Methodist New Connection). 4. That the following memorial be addressed to her Majesty the Queen - TO THE QUEEN'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY. The Memorial of the undersigned Inhabitants of Huddersfield en the County of York. We desire to approach your Majesty with the assurance of our devoted loyalty to your Crown, and cordial attach- [attachment] ment [men] to your person, That whilst we recognise the right of our Roman Catholic fellow-subjects to the free exercise of their reli- [deli- religion] gion, [Gin] we feel it ow duty to convey to your Majesty our indignant protest against the spirit and provisions of a Papal Bull, bearing date September 24th, [the] 1850, and re- [recently] cently [cent] made public in this country. That a foreign potentate should dare to parcel out your Majesty's dominions into districts, to erect such dis- [districts] tricts [tracts] into Romish [Rooms] Sees, to appoint to those districts Eclesi- [Eccles- Ecclesiastical] astics [attics] who may or may not be natives of this country, or well-affected to your Majesty's person and Government, and to give to those Ecclesiastics titles taken from the most important towns in the kingdom, that the strings of this great confederacy should be carried to Rome, and held by the Pope, we believe to be an arrogant invasion of the supremacy of the Crown, most detrimental to the carrying ou of your Majesty's Government, and pregnant with evils to our Protestant rights and liberties. though it could be shown that such an exercise of sovercign [sovereign] jurisdiction is no infraction of the letter of the law, and that its aiders [aides] and abettors are not amenable to punishment, under the existing statutes, yet we feel well assured that that fundamental principle of the constitution is grossly violated which declares 'that no foreign prince or potentate, spiritual or temporal, shall exercise any manner of jurisdiction or privilege, spivitual [spiritual] or ecclesias- [eclipse- ecclesiastical] tical, [critical] within this realm or the dominions thereof.' We must further regard it as an assumption, and, if tolerated, an important step towards the recovery of that ecclesiastical dominion over all classes of your Majesty's subjects, from which, through God's infinite mercy, and after most painful struggles, our land was delivered at the glorious Reformation. We, therefore, humbly pray that your Majesty, with the advice of your most Honourable Privy Council, will be graciously pleased to take such measures as may at once rebuke and check the encroachments against which we hereby protest, and effectually prove, for the time to come,that the Bishop of Rome hath no juris- [juries- jurisdiction] diction in this. realm otfEngland. [England] That after the same is signed, the Chairman be requested to transmit the Memorial to Sir George Grey, to be pre- [presented] sented [scented] to her Majesty. Moved by the Rev. N. ManinG [Manning] (Incumbent, Trinity) ; and seconded by Wricut [Writ] MELLoR, [Mellor] Esq. 5. That Petitions to both Houses of Parliament, em- [embodying] bodying the substance of the Memorial, be prepared; and that Lord Fitzwilliam be requested to present the same to the Lords, and W. R. C. Stansfield, Esquire, to the Commons. 5 WILLIAM WILLANS, Chairman. Moved by W. BaRKER, [Barker] Esq.; and seconded by J. H. RAMSBOTHAM, [RAMSBOTTOM] i . 6.

THE QUEEN, CCMMERCIAL [COMMERCIAL] AND FAMILY HOTEL, Market Street, Huddersfield. OSEPH [JOSEPH] GAUNT respectfully apprises his Friends and the Public that he has OPENED the com- [commodious] modious [odious] and well-arranged Premises, situate in MARKET STREET, (South,) HUDDERSFIELD, as a GENERAL and FAMILY HOTEL, and where he trusts his efforts to secure the comfort and approbation of his guests will be such as to entitle him to regard. . The situation of The Queen is one admirably adapted for quiet and privacy, while it is within one minute's drive of the Railway Station, by the Cloth Hall, consequently in the midst of the Woollen and Fancy Mart of the District. Parties visiting The Queen, can, if they prefer it, secure all the seclusion of a private home. It is pre-eminently a Family Hotel. . Travellers will find The Queen replete with every modern convenience and comfort. The extent of the Premises and the many resources of the Establishment, render The Queen unequalled as a Market House. An Ordinary every Day at One P M. A CASE TERMED EMBEZZLEMENT IN LAST WEEK'S PAPER. . respect of the above which appeared in the papers, we have to say that thestatements [the statements] of the wit- [witnesses] nesses [senses] for the prosecution were replete with falsehood, and got up regardless of both truth and equity. The only waste found in our mill (excepting Mr. Shaw's, which was belong- [belonging] ing to work not finished at the time,) that did not belong to us was that of John Taylor's, and not at any rate more than a pound in weight, (stated by Kaye as 6lb. [lb] or The slubber, [slumber] John Vantry, [Pantry] told John Taylor the reason why it was there, and that we had no knowledge of it till we saw it on the 25th of October. He knew and believed that we did not intend to keep it, yet he intimated that very morning the case was tried, because we had not allowed him 1 per cent discount, as he said we had done to another party, he was so provoked he would have revenge; he did so, and we were convicted. There were no nippings [shipping] whatever in any of the rooms belonging to Hinchliffe Bro- [Brothers] thers [there] or Hinchliffe and Sons. Mr. Lodge's 2lb. [lb] or 3lb. [lb] of nippings [shipping] were in a spinning-room let off by the said firm. They were in two lots of white, pure, and unmixed to any other colour or any other person's waste, and nothing more distant from us than the idea to detain and appropriate them to ouruse. [our use] There were other coloured nippings [shipping] be- [belonging] onging [longing] to Hinchliffe Brothers in the said spinning-room, and about 1 or perhaps 2Ib. [ob] of stained slubbing bits, spare of a lot of twist warp, one lot only of that description we had made. These nippings [shipping] and bits they took, and Mr. Lodge's nippings, [shipping] with Mr. Taylor's runnings [running] off, from the slubbing-room below, and threw them together, and pro- [produced] duced [duce] them before the magistrates mixed together, and then asked the several witnesses if that did not look suspi- [sup- suspicious] cious [sous] to see stuff mixed together in that way, and they, of course, not knowing the circumstances of the case, replied in the affirmative. The yarn they took was our own, by right of purchase; the rest and bulk was our own, cleaned from the cards and from the willow muck. We are aware that it hath been said that during the present year we have bought only about of wool, which is not correct. We have bought wool during that period of the following different Firms, who are parties well known in the Hud- [HUD- Huddersfield] derstield [detailed] market -Of Mr. Hornblower 972Ib. [ob] Messrs. H. Hirst anc [an] Co., 706lb. [lb] Messrs. M. Hirst and Son ; Messrs. Parkin Brothers, 1872Ib. [ob] Mr. Ramsden, 492Ib. [ob] ; Mr. C. N. Wilson. 196lb. [lb] the whole amount, 45511b.. [b] and other wools bought in 1849, of which we might have unused till the present year. As to the condition of our willow where there is one better there are two worse; so much fur the man who did say that a good willow cast off only dye- [dyers] wares or dust. We do not wish to take up much of your valuable space, or we might have taken severally the state- [statements] ments [rents] of the prosecution and shown their falsity. We shall, with these few remarks, leave the case, doubting not that those who understand the business will be able to judge correctly of the matter. Yours respectfully, T. HINCHLIFFE AND SONS. Town Head, Honley. Nov. 21, 1850. P.S.- It hath been said that a quantity of waste was burned there is not the least possible truth about it. The undersigned were present in the fireing [foreign] place at the time, and one of them had been there nearly an hour. JOHN NEWSOME. Sam. MARSDEN.

The Committee continue to meet every Monpay [Monday] Evening, at the IMPROVEMENT CoMMISSIONERS' [Commissioners] BoaRD [Board] Room, at Fight o'clock, to which they invite the attendance of all interested in the object; and as many persons are with holding their Subscriptions until they know in what way the money is to be appropriated, the Committee consider it necessary to state, that although the nature of the Monument must in some measure depend upon the amount of Subscriptions, they are of opinion that a simple STONE MONUMENT or COLUMN, erected in some conspicuous place in the town or neighbourhood of Huddersfield, will be the most suitable Memorial, and they earnestly invite the opinion and co-operation of their fellow-townsmen in the accomplishment of this praiseworthy object. CHAS. PRITCHETT, Hon. Sec. Riot, ROBBERY, AND MURDER AT LEEDS. A fearful outrage by a band of Irish immigrants, took place in Leeds on Saturday night last, in the course of which a beer-shop was sacked, its inmates maltreated, two police-officers frightfully beaten, the arm of one being broken, and the skull of the other fractured; andan [and] inoffensive Englishmanso [Englishman] injured that he expired in the General Infirmary at noon on Thursday. Thenames [The names] of the delinquents are John Haley, James Cratty, [Catty] James Fallon, William Fallon, Michael Cantwell, Michael Marah, [Marsh] William Higgins, and a woman Rourke. They have undergone two examinations before the borough magistrates, and now stand remanded until Saturday (to-day). It appeared from the examination that on Saturday night a body of men, armed with pokers, bludgeons, and other offensive weapons, marched to the Foresters' Arms, and finding it barred against them broke the windows and did other damage. They then proceeded in a body to Ball's beer-house, at the door of which stood a pony, and one of the ringleaders, named Hogan, who was armed with a heavy bludgeon, struck the poor animal on the head and stunned it. Haley and Cratty, [Catty] the one armed with a poker, the other with a stick, then forced their way into the house, and at once demolished all the china, glass, and other articles in the lower rooms. They next raised a wild Irish ery, [very] and in a minute stones and brickbats poured like a hailstorm through the bar-window, compelling the landlord and landlady to seek shelter in a corner of the room, Haley coolly drew out the money-till, and cleared it ot its contents-some or 15.

The officers were knocked down, were beaten, kicked, and jumped upon until they were to all appearance lifeless, and are 1 ying [ting] in a dangerous state.

In the midst of the perplexity which surrounds the German question, the politicians of Paris have been still further perplexed by an act of the French executive. When war between Prussia and Austria seemed to be imminent, the President talked of a pacific policy, neutrality, and probable reduction of the army; and now, when there is little or no fear of an outbreak, the government has called out 40,000 additional men. General Schramm, [Scream] the Minister of War, pleads that in presence of the political events which agitate Germany, it is an act of prudent foresight to assemble in the territorial divisions of the north and east a number of troops sufficient to meet all eventualities. Some of the Paris journals see in this a preparation for even- [eventualities] tualities [qualities] at home; but, in the meantime, these sur- [Sir- surmises] mises [Miss] are baffled by the actual departure of troops for the north-east. ee THE POST-OFFICE ACCOMMODATION OF HUDDERSFIELD. We this day publish a sensible and seasonable re- [remonstrance] monstrance against our present Post-office arrange- [arrangements] ments [rents] from Mr. JosepH [Joseph] of Huddersfield and Netherton. With Mr. Wriciey [Wrigley] we perfectly coincide Huddersfield is the worst accommo- [accommodate- accommodated] dated post-town in England. We mean of any town of similar size and importance. This arises from the defective arrangements of the head office, and from the slowness of the Post-office managers to adopt their arrangements to the altered circum- [circus- circumstances] stances of the country. For instance;-the postal ' arrangements of Huddersfield, as far asthe [asthma] London mails are concerned, and, we believe, of most of the others, are just the same as they were before we had a railway stretching itself into the very heart of the town with the single exception, that the bags are sent up from Cooper Bridge by railway instead of by the omnibus. Nay, in these days of celerity and steam locomotion, it is a fact that one despatch of the London out bags from Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field is sent either to Wakefield or Normanton by a horse vehicle Mr. Wricuey [Wrigley] has called attention to one great disadvantage arising to our commercial men from these defective arrangements the fact, that though Huddersfield stands in distance from London about the same as Manchester and Leeds, it is by these postal arrangements removed three or four hours further off. But Mr. Wriciey [Wrigley] has not stated the whole of the case. His remarks apply only to one of the London mails there is another mail, the ad- [advantage] vantage of which is wholly denied to Huddersfield, through these stupid arrangements. A day mail starts from London every morning at 10 a.m. for Manchester, and the west; and at 10-15 a.m. for Leeds, Neweastle, [Newcastle] and the North. This day mail arrives in Liverpool at 4 45 the same -afternoon- [afternoon and] and, at Leeds at 6-50. Letters by that mail are delivered in Manchester soon after four o'clock in the afternoon, and between seven and eight in Leeds. Bags for Huddersfield are brought by that mail to Normanton, where the train arrives at 6-20. But from the extreme distance that Norman- [Normanton] ton is now placed from Huddersfield, those bags do not reach our Post-otfice [Post-office] before 10 p.m., when the office is closed The letters, therefore, posted in London up to 7 p.m. are delivered in Huddersfield at the very same time as those which had been despatched from the Metropolis some eleven hours earlier If this be not a wise arrangement, and if it does not bear out Mr. WricLey's [Wrigley's] description of Huddersfield being the worst accommodated post- [posting] town in England, find us one that is Did proper arrangements exist had we a mail from Manchester along our own line of railway, we could have London letters by the day mail in Hud- [HUD- Huddersfield] dersfield [Huddersfield] by six pm. There would then be three hours in which to answer those letters, to be des- [despatched] patched by the up night mail, and be delivered in London soon after noon the next day. Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field would in that case be eleven hours nearer to London than it now is. At present, as far as this day mail is concerned, it is as far distant as either Glasgow or Edinburgh. With Mr. WricLEy, [Wrigley] we ask, are these absurd arrangements longer to continue, and no effort be made by our merchants and manufacturers to pro- [procure] cure a change We have indicated the remedy- [Medals] Malis [Mails] ALONG oUR [our] owN [on] LINE or Raitway. [Railway] We trust that a memorial setting forth the glaring facts of our postal accommodation, and asking for arrangements more in consonance with our present means of transit and importance as a district, will be forthwith prepared, signed, and transmitted to the proper quarter. We cannot believe that the post- [post office] office authorities will be deaf to such a representa- [present- representation] tion, [ion] or hesitate to adopt the proper course of remedy, when these facts are prominently brought under attention. At all events it is a duty which our commercial men owe to themselves and to the town to take the course herein recommended-a duty which we have no doubt will be forthwith undertaken. It will also be seen that Mr. in the postscript to his letter, opens up a large question- [question] a question which we have not opportunity at pre- [present] sent to enlarge upon, but to which we shall shortly recur. We are glad that the point has been mooted and Mr. Wriciey's [Wrigley's] hints will set our merchants and manufacturers a-thinking on the subject. Local Lntelligence. [Intelligence] QUEEN-STREET WESLEYAN ANNIVERSARY.-The anni- [ann- anniversary] versary [vestry] sermons, towards liquidating the debt on this place of worship, were preached on the morning and even- [evening] ing of Sunday last, by the Rev. Dr. Beaumont, of London, who delivered two eloquent discourses on the occasion. The congregations at both services were densely crowded, and the collections amounted to 48 1s. 53d. FOR PRoMOTING [Promoting] CHRISTIANITY AMONG THE EWws.-The [Es.-The] annual services in connection with the Society for Promoting Christianity among the Jews, commenced on Sunday morning last, by a special sermon by the Rev. A. Thomas, M.A., in Trinity Church, followed by special ser- [se- services] vices at Woodhouse in the afternoon, and at the parish church in the evening the collections being, respectively, 11 lds. [ls] dd., 11 10s., and 410s. s] The public m [in] eting [ting] was held on Monday evening in the Philosophical Hall, the worthy VicaR [Vicar] in thechair. [the chair] The proceedings of the even- [evening] ing were opened by singing and prayer, after whica [which] the CHAIRMAN, in the course of his introductory remarks, pressed upon the speakers the necessity of keeping strictly to the subject before them, and to avoid the introduction of more exciting topics. The report of the branch society's local efforts was read by the secretary, the Rev. Mr. Grane, of Woodhouse, and on the whole was of a very promising character.-The Rev. G. Houcu [Hock] then moved the first resolution- [resolution that] That this meeting are convinced that the obligation of the Church of Christ to seek the salvation of Israel by prayer and active exertion is established by the plainest declarations of Holy Scripture and recognise in the measure of success vouch- [vouchsafed] safed [safe] to this society an encouraging proof of divine approval. which was seconded by the Rev. A. THOMAS, the deputa- [deputy- deputation] tion [ion] from the parent society, in a pleasing and interesting s h, in advocacy of the claims and vast importance of the society. In reference to the progress of the society amongst the Jews, the reverend gentleman detailed many pleasing illustrations of success, and concluded by trusting that they would give a hearty response and support to the society.-The Rev. G. B. BeNsTEaD, [Instead] of Lockwood, moved the second resvlution, [resolution] in a short speech- [speech that] , That this meeting ascribe thankscivi [thanks] for the increased facilities of noes me families of his ancient people, and for th fested [rested] among them to receive and stud this meeting acknowledge the locally a more lively nation. -The Rev.

Mr. Copway, [Copy] attired in his costume as an Indian chief, and represented in one of the rev. gentleman's most characteristic attitudes. This we believe is the only occasion on which he has sat for his portrait in this country. Law Soctety.-The [Society.-The] members and friends of this society assembled together on Thursday evening, at the Albion Hotel, and sat down to a sumptuous repast, provided by the worthy landlord, Mr. Spurr. The chair was occupied by W. Jacomb, Esq., and the Vice-Chair by C. S. Floyd, The usual loyal, legal, and local toasts were drunk with enthusiasm, and the proceedings of the evening passed over in the most agreeable manner. No Porery [Poetry LECTURE.-A meeting was held in Dyke- [Dyke end] end School-room, on Tuesday evening, when the Rev. N. Maning [Manning] delivered a deeply interesting lecture on the ' Sins of Romanism, [Remains, to a large and respectable audience. The reverend gentleman, in opening his lecture, said that if any Romanist had any remarks to make, or questions to ask, he would give them every opportunity at the end of the meeting, but particularly requested he might not be interrupted in his discourse. In the first part of his lecture he confined himself entirely to the Bible, deducing there- [therefrom] from that the apostolic church spoken of in the New Testa- [Taste- Testament] ment [men] (lst [last] Timothy, chap. iv., verses 1, 2, and 3), as ab- [abstaining] staining from meats and forbidding to marry is the same as the Catholic Church at the present day. In the latter part of his discourse he read several extracts from some of the Roman Catholic books, and breviary, also many painfully interesting accounts of the treatment Protestants received when the Romanists were in power, both in Eng- [England] land and Scotland, with a description of the barbarous machines used in Madrid, for torture, even as late as when Napoleon entered that city in 1814. There were several Romanists present, but only twice during the meeting was the speaker interrupted. In conclusion, he expressed his opinion as to the letter and character of Lord John Russell, and gave utterance to a hope that he might long be spared among them. THEATRE.-Amongst the novelties brought out by Mr. Wild, in the course of the past week, Mr. Buckstone's [Touchstone's] beautiful drama, The Flowers of the Forest, has been placed upon the stage most successfully. In the whole range of the British name, there are perhaps few acting pieces so full of touching incidents and broad humour, con- [containing] taining [training] so many beautiful scenes, and requiring such admira- [Admiral- admirable] ble [be] acting as The Fowers [Flowers] of the Forest. There is a master hand sketching life in the characters of Cynthia, Star-light Bess, and Lemuel; relieved by Ishmael, Cheap John, and Kinchin, [Kitchen] which are admirably true to nature. Under all the difficulties which would necessarily arise in the caste at Mr. Wild's disposal, he put this piece on the stage in a very creditable manner; and the characters of Cynthia (Mrs. S. Wild), Star-light Bess (Mrs. Bateson) Lemuel (Mr. Tate), Cheap John (Mr. Woodford), and Kinchin [Kitchen] (Mr. S. Wild), were on the whole well played. We do not, however, understand why Mr. Perris takes such active characters. The dresses were exceedingly good. Mr. Wild's dog Nelson has formed the principle feature of attraction during the subsequent evenings, and he certainly has performed some extraordinary feats of sagacity We believe the audiences have been crowded and enthusiastic. MEcHaNIcs' [Mechanics] INsTITUTION.-The [Institution.-The] reports which we con- [continue] tinue [tine] to hear of this institution are of the most gratifying character.

ANNUAL SUPPER OF THE HUDDERSFIELD FLORAL AND HORTICULTURAL Society.-The members and friends of this society celebrated their aniversary [anniversary] supper or. Thurs- [Thursday] day evening last, at the house of Mr. Robert Spivey, Green Dragon, Westgate. About thirty gentlemen sat down to the ample and excellent provision provided with epicurean care by the worthy host and hostess for the occasion. On the removal of the cloth T. P. Crosland, Esq was elected as president for the evening, and T. Brook, Esq., Colne Villa, as vice president. From the financial statement of the society, the affairs appear to be in a very flourishing and prosperous condition The nett receipts during the past year were 412 18s., against an expenditure of 333 16s. 64d., leaving a balance in hand of 79 Is. 52d., exclusive of stock worth 104 8s. After the usual loyal toasts had been drunk with cheers, the Chairman, in a short speech, gave Success tothe [tithe] Huddersfield Floral and Horti- [Hot- Horticultural society] culturalSociety. [cultural society. Indoingsohesaid, [Indisposed] knowing that thesociety [the society] had been of great importance in inducing men to employ their leisure hours in cultivating what, perhaps, mizht [might] have been waste spots, and making them productive-of bringing to great perfection what might have been left in ohscurity [security] ; it certainly struck him as one of the most important toasts of the evening. It was always pleasant to contemplate the mind of man when employed upon something bencticial [beneficial] to his fellow-man, and he believed that such associations as this were calculated to direct and divert the mind into its proper channels, and to give those who had a taste for the cultivation of plants, flowers, and vegetables, an inducement to prefer those studies which were con- [consonant] sonant [son ant] with their natures and they might depend upon it, when studying those things they would not be long, before they saw whence these these things proceeded, and look from nature, up to nature's God. He believed the association was calculated to ilo [lo] great good, and therefore, he drank its success with all pleasure. The toast was re- [responded] sponded [seconded] to by Mr. George Braid, gardener to Joseph Brook, Esq., Greenhead, as one of the founders of the society. He said he felt great pleasure in finding their position so greatly improved upon the past year. They had now 832 members on the books, or 2U0 [U] more than the previous year, and he doubted not but that if the com- [committee] mittee [matter] worked together with the same unanimity of feeling as had hitherto characterised their proceedings they would at least number 1,000 members at their next anniversary. The President of the Society (Joseph Brook, Esq., Greenhead,) was drunk with three times three, and musical honours. The remaining toasts of the evening, the Vice Presidents, the Secretaries, the Committee of Manave- [Manage- Management] ment, [men, and the Town and Trade of Hudderstield, [Huddersfield, were drunk with preat [great] enthusiasm, and were proposed and re- [responded] sponded [seconded] to by the Chairman, Vice Chairman, Messrs. Owen, Batley, Haigh, James Armitage, Joshua Hobson, and Beaumont Taylor. The speeches were interspersed with songs, and the evening passed over with pleasure to all parties. APPLICATION FOR A NEW TRIAL IN THE Case oF BROOK AND ANOTHER 2. Hanson.-Shortly after the opening of the County Court on Thursday, Mr. C. S. Floyd addressed the judge, in application for a new trial in this case, (in which it will be remembered that Mr. Brook positively swore to a promissory note being in his possession since 1847, which on examination bore the stamp mark of 1850). [W] The application was made on the ground that the plaintiff immediately on going home made enquiries respecting the promissory note to which he had sworn so positively, and discovered that the note produced in court on the trial was merely a a copy, which had foolishly been taken on a stamp some time previously, and had not been destroyed. The original note having been found, it was preduced [reduced] in court. His honour said that the application must be re- [renewed] newed [need] on affidavits, furnished to the defendants. We have very great pleasure in giving every publicity to this very satisfactory explanation of what certainly appeared at the time a piece of gross perjury, more especially as Mr. Brook and family have always held a very respectable position in the town. How Far IS AN ADMINISTRATOR RESPONSIBLE FOR DEBTS BEYOND THE AMOUNT LEFT BY THE TESTATOR - THORNTON vy. WILBY.-The plaintiff in this case is a canal- [canal boat] boat carpenter, residing at Mirfield, and was secking [seeking] to recover in the County Court, on Thursday, the sum of 35 12s. 9d. from the wife of Joshua Wilby, boat-owner, of Aspley, deceased. Mr. Leadbeater supported the claim, and Mr. Floyd objected. Before the case was gone into Mr. Floyd intimated that the debt was acknowledged, but it would be pleaded by the defendant, who was the ad- [administratrix] ministratrix [administratrix] to her husband's property, that she had already paid more than her husband's assets and property were valued at, and, therefore, that she could not be responsible for any further claim. Mr. Leadbeater sub- [submitted] mitted [fitted] the defendant to a long cross-examination, in the course of which he elicited that a short time prior to her husband's death he had somewhat questionably transferred a certain boat to his father for a sum alleged to be below its value, but still retaining the entire possession and manave- [manage- management] ment [men] of it; that she had pail all other debts in full, but not a single furthing [Furnishing] had been offered to Mr. Thornton in liquidation of his claims. His Honour, in a verdict for the plaintiff, said he was not satisfied with the alleged transfer of the boat by the deceased to his father, and he was addition to this view of the case there were several thines [thine] in the payments of the defendant which could not be allowed, and there had evidently been some unfairness in paying the other creditors in full, but leaving Mr. w-thout [w-thought] a single farthing. plaintiff, CAUTION To Comuisston [Compton] AGENTS, - SHaw.-This [Shaw.-This] was an action b ae me County - d. as commission returnable on bad debts.

It was first pleaded in reply that due diligence had not been used in the recovery of those debts and secondly, that it was not cus- [us- customary] tomary [Mary] that the commission on bad 'debts should be re- [returned] turned after an engagement had terminated. On the first point, his Honour, after learning that the claims had been put into the hands of a legal gentleman, uttered the rather startling dicta, T have a right to assume that whatever the solicitor does is right ;' and on the second, he decided that thetermsofagreement [disfigurement] referred toalldebts [stallholders] ineurred [incurred] prior to leaving the employ, and he should therefure [therefore] give a ver- [Rev- verdict] dict for the plaintiff for the amount.

Freeman de- [def] f p of limitations. The plaintiff 1s a medical man, practising at Meltcham, [Meltham] and at the time this debt was contracted he was 2 student and assistant with his father. Medicine at various times had been sent by order to the defendant to the amount of 5. Repeated application had been maie [main] for the payment of the debt, but with little effect, until the latter part of 1849, during c v i Meltham feast, the plaintiff went to defendant's house, and hesent [sent] for the police. v eC j The husband was not in, and the wife said she had no money, buthe [butcher] one or two couples of ducks as part payment if he thought proper, and accordingly he took a couple, which was argued as good payment. It was attempted to be shown that no ducks had been given to the plaintiff in payment of the medical account, and even if they had, it was contended they could not be considered as payment in the meaning of the act of parliament. His Honour decided that he was satistied [satisfied] from the evidence examined that the ducks had been obtained as stated, and that they were undoubtedly lawful payment, and sufficient to bring a case within the statute of limitations. The verdict must, therefore, be for the plaintiff, for the amount claimed. inclined to believe that no legal transfer had been made in violent and impertinent, he if Thornton 10s. and expenses.
