ET ae Seana [Sean] THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, N OVEMBER [NOVEMBER] 23, 1850. QUABRELS.-An [QUARRELS.-An] old woman, named Elizabeth reenwood, [Greenwood] small shopkeeper, living at Mold Green, ap- [agree] Grew as complainant at the Guildhall;-on Saturday last, 'ast [at] Mary Ann Heaton and Dorothy Firth, ona [on] charge r. Clay appeared for the prosecutor, and Mr. ransfield [Dransfield] for the defendants. From the examination we mt that Mary Ann Heaton is sister to the complainant's 's wife, and owing to circumstances into which we need t enter, She, accompanied by Dorothy Firth, was alleged n pave taken the complainant's son's child to the old to man's house, on the night of Friday the 8th inst. Mrs. Greenwood declined to keep the child, and requested the defendants to take it away again, when, according to her 'ors, they began to ill use, and, in the end, threw her sown the steps, when she fell, and received severe injuries, The charge was denied, the defendant Heaton proving an lit, and there being no case against Dorothy Firth, the case Was disnz [Disney] . aRGE [are] OF STEALING A SILVER WatcH. [Watch] James we was charged before Joseph Armitage and George armitage, [Armitage] Esqrs. [Esquires] at the Guildhall, on Saturday, with tealing dealing] a silver watch, the property of Isaac Shackleton. It appeared that the parties had been drinking together at a beer-house in Thomas-street, on the &th instant, when, after sitting for some hours, Shackleton fell asleep, during hich [which] Waterworth took from him his watch, and 3s. from his right-hand trouser's pocket, in the presence of a man amed [made] Hudson, who supposing that they were companions, qud [oud] that it was a mere lark, took no notice of the affair, until the complainant awoke, and finding that he had been robbed, began to enquire as to whether Hudson knew any- [anything] thing about it. He was told that Waterworth was the man. Waterworth had left the house a short time before, aud [and] Shackleton at once proceeded to his residence in Dock- [Dock street] street. and demanded his watch. The prisoner said he had not got it, but pulled out of his pocket a pawn ticket for the article, and wanted to make it up. The watch had peen pledged at Mr. Zachariah Drake's, for 6s. Informa- [Inform- Information] tion [ion] was given to the police, when the watch was recovered, and the prisoner taken into custody on Friday night the j5th. [5th] Overtures had been made by Waterworth, to which Shackleton conditionally acquiesced, but owing to legal roceedings [proceedings] having been instituted, they had fallen through. The prisoner was committed to the sessions to take his trial for the offence. Tur Firth oF NOVEMBER.-There appears to have been an active crusade in this neighbourhood against the great boys and little boys who wished to indulge their Popery fecliny [decline] by bonfires and similar interesting feats, and many of these wuiurtunate [fortunate] gentlemen have figured in the not very honourable position of defendants at the Guildhall in con- [consequence] sequence. Of this number were some ten or eleven boys, whose ages would vary from ten to thirty, who appeared pefore [before] our sitting magistrates last Saturday, charged with making, on the 5th of November, at Birkby, a bonfire within fifty yards of the highway. Mr. J. I. Freeman appeared on behalf of the defendants. The prosecutor in the case was Mr. George Brook, fireman, who said that in consequence of the fire, one of his cottages, situated close by, had received damage by the burning of a door, oileloth, [oilcloth] and other articles, to the extent of 30s. The defendants were proved by two or three witnesses to have been prescut [Prescot] at the fire, but there was no evidence to show that they had in any way assisted in making it, and there- [therefore] fore they were discharged. a atest [test] Entelligence.

Baker, Esq. respectfully MILNE, Woodhouse, November 18th, [the] 1850. Dear Sir,-I only returned home late on Saturday evening, otherwise I should have been glad to have joined the party at the annual Municipal Dinner on Friday last. Allow me to con- [congratulate] gratulate [grateful] you on the party having passed off so very satisfacto- [satisfactory- satisfactorily] rily. [Riley] I consider such re-unions of parties are calculated, in some measure, to soothe their little differcnces, [difference] and must tend to promote the local interests of our town. Believe me, dear Sir, most faithfully yours, W. Barker, Esq JOSEPH STARKEY, We now supply the addresses omitted last week for want of space - Mr. JosEPH [Joseph] BEAUMONT, jun., said it was his pleasurable duty to bring before the notice of the assembly the names of parties who had rendered great satisfaction to the inha- [ina- inhabitants] bitants [bit ants] of this borough. None, he was sure, were unmind- [mind- unmindful] ful [full] of the great advantages which the Water Works Com missioners had conferred on the interests of this town and neighbourhood. (Cheers.) It was unnecessary for him to descant largely on the advantages offered by those works, when he informed them that for twenty years they had exerted their influence iu a honourable, straightforward, and manly manner; and he was sure nothing he could say would confirm the high estimation in which they were held by the townspeople with whom they were connected. He should, therefure, [therefore] cut his speech very short by proposing The health of the Waterworks Commissioners of Hud- [HUD- Huddersfield] (Cheers.) Mr THowas [Thomas] VaRLEY, [Varley] in acknowledging the toast, remarked that in 1827 the first royal assent was given to this town for the establishment of Water Works; and many there present would remember the town of Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field was at that time very inefficiently supplied with water from the river. It was forced up in wooden pipes until 1829; and then, at last, the water was brought through iron pipes, except at Meltham. In 1843 and 1844 they again became short of water, and they then applied for fresh powers. He was happy to say that the works were completed; and he concluded by expressing a hope that they would allow him to say a few words with respect to the Lighting and Watching Committee. That committee had powers simular [similar] to those of the Commissioners; and if there were any fault in them it was that they were too careful of the public money. (Hear, hear, and Laughter.) Mr. W. BaRKER, [Barker] in proposing the Improvement Com- [Commissioners] missioners, said he had some difficulty in submitting the toast, because they would all remember he was the repre- [prepare- representative] sentative [sensitive] of the old Lighting and Watching Commsssioners [Commissioners] in preventing the coming into existence of the present body but he was sure when the royal assent was given to the bill there was a good understanding between the old body and the new.' There were no lachrymose tears on behalf of the old body-(laughter)-because they were quite satisfied the town would be better served than they had the power to do; and consequently the formation of the new body was for the good of the place. He was sure it was high time for the beuefit [benefit] of the town that they should seek to promote, still further, the union that now existed amongst them. (Hear,) He believed that the old Lighting and Watching Com tnissioners [missioners] would notattempt [not attempt] to appoint a day police, but felt considerable doubts that they were not empowered to appvint [appoint] the police. It was owing, he said, to the good feeiing [feeling] which prevailed in the town on these matters that they never got into legal difficulties. In glancing at the position of the town, he mentioned that the powers they possessed under the Huddersfield Improve- [Improvement] ment [men] Bill were of great benefit to the ratepayers, and he added that the possessim [possession] of a regular stand of hackney coaches was ofgreat [of great] importance, as it would keep their charges to a proper scale, and thus be the means of preventing imposition. He thought the having of the Improvement Commissioners was highly necessary, and that the town was very much indebted to any gentleman who would come forward to discharge the duties that de- [devolved] volved [solved] on him, if he accepted that office. (Hear, hear.) They deserved the confidence of the inhabitants; and it seemed to him they had no right to find fault with them until some wrong was done. He did not say they were to hoodwink or blind themselves to anything wrong; but if they would meet them from year to year, as he was sorry to say they had done, and with that degree of passion and determination to tind [tins] fault, because it was expensive, he did not think that was a correct course. It might be more expensive, but ought they not to pay for the thing they had He believed from the Finance Committee's report that the total expenses did not exceed 2s. in the pound a year; and he understood that the previous rate was 20d.; [d] so that if they merely had an increase of 4d. in the pouud [pound] it was very little compared with the increased benefits they possessed. (Hear, hear.) In speaking of the proposed cemetery, he thought the site near Egerton Bar was, on many grounds, much superior to many of the others. (Hear, hear.) He concluded by asking them to give with enthusiasm, the health of the Improvement Commis- [Comms- Commissioners] sioners. [sinners. (Loud cheering.) Wistrict [District] News. HOLMFIRTH. RerorteD [Reported] DeEatH [Death] oF JONATHAN Roberts, EsqQ., [Esq] OF HincuHuirFE [Hinchcliffe] Mitt.-In our last week's impression a paragraph appeared alluding to the death of Mr. Roberts. In one respect we are happy in being able to inform our readers that the report was without foundation and in another respect we deeply regret that our in- [informant] formant was misled ;-misled not only in respect of Mr. Robeits's [Roberts's] death. but also in respect of his penurious habits, as mentioned in the paragraph alluded to. We shall be very particular in these matters for the future. Gurr [Burr] Crvus.-On [Crus.-On] Thursday night last, the fortnightly Glee Club was held at the Crown Hotel, Holmfirth, when Miss Berry, Miss Pogson, Messrs. Charles and Thomas Kaye, and Mr. George Crosland, of Holmfirth, were the principal vocalists Mr. James Walker presided at the piano-forte. There was a good attendance, and the evening was spent very agreeably ANNUAL MEETING OF THE HOLMFIRTH MECHANICS' InstiTUTE.-The [Institute.-The] annual meeting of this Institute took place on Thursday evening last, John Hickson, Esq., president. in the chair. From the report read the in- [institute] stitute [institute] appears in a flourishing condition. The library contains about 700 vols. The issue during the year has exceeded 2,000. The election of officers for the year ensuing was as follows -John Hickson, Esq., president, Joseph Moorehouse, Esq., J.P., treasurer. Mr. Isaac Beardsall, Mr. Joe Woodhead, Mr. Joe Dyson, and Mr. Samuel Wimpenny, Secretaries. After the principal business of the evening was discussed the question was asked, if works of fiction might be admitied [admitted Up to the present time those works have been prohibited. The discussion of the question was put off till Wednes- [Wednesday- Wednesday] day, December 4th. Tae [Tea] Great Exurprrion [Expiring] oF 1851.-Is [W.-Is] THE INVEN- [VEIN- INVENTION] TION [ION] OF Wincs [Wins] FoR [For] Human BEINGS PROBABLE -On Thursday last some persons (not far from Holmfirth) were discussing the subject of the great Exhibition which is to take place in London next year. Amongst otuer [other] speculations, one person mentioned his non- [non surprise] surprise if some philosophic individual either English or foreign would produce wings, simple in their con- [construction] struction, [instruction] feasable [feasible] and practicable in their character, to enable human beings to fly with ease from one town to another. The idea caused some to laugh and, to say, what next to which he added tha [that] if they lived a hundred years since, there would have been no railways then, or 'electric telegraphs, any thought of, and if they had lived then, an one amongst them had said it would be possible to in- [invent] vent railways, on which, by the power of steam, passen- [passed- passengers] gers [hers] might ride in carriages from place to place at e speed of fifty miles and hour, and supposing another had said, it would be as possible to invent wings, by the means of which individuals might fly at that speed from place to place-which of thet [the] wo ideas would then have had the most credence The idea is certainly a novel one, and causes novel thoughts to arise as to the novelties which would be brought about in case such invention takes place, and be proved practicable. Our common phraseology in reference to our from place to place in ourevery-day [our every-day] conversation, would be changed writers, authors, and journalists would have to alter their mode of expression. Our present gram- [grammars] mars and maps would become obsolete, our footpaths would be deserted, our coaches and railway carriages would be laught [laugh] at by the soaring multitude while out- [outdoing] doing the swiftest in their flight. -MAGISTRATES' OFFICE, TOWN HALL, Nov. 16. Before J. CHARLEswortTH, [Charles] W. L. Brook, and J. Moor- [Moorhouse] HOUSE, Esqrs. [Esquires] Dasacinc [Dancing] Piants.-Two [Pints.-Two] boys and two girls were charged with damaging plants and trees in a wood, called Bottoms Wood, belonging to Ebenezer Tinker, Esq., of Meal Hill. Mr. Tinker did not press his charge, but said his object in bringing them before the magis- [magic- magistrates] trates [rates] was that his doing so might act asa warning to them and to others. The youths then received a suit- [suitable] able reprimand from the bench,-after which they were liberated on payment of expenses, which were 4s. Cuarce [Scarce] or AssavLt.-James [Assault.-James] Hinchliffe, of Austonley, was charged with committing an outrageous assault upon John Shaw, of Carr Green, near Austonley. It appears both parties were drinking together at the Victoria beer-house, on the Ist [Its] inst., when Shaw (the com- [complainant] plainant) [plain ant] began to use abusive expressions in reference to some men in the employ of Mr. Lockwood, of Burnlee, whereupon Hinchliffe (the defendant) started from his seat and commenced beating Shaw to such an extent as to break his collar bone. For this offence he was fined 2, and 19s. costs, which sums were paid. HONLEY. Sick Ciups [Cups] rm Factortes.-Perhaps [Factories.-Perhaps] there is no other nation on the earth in which the labouring classes make such extensive provision for the well-being of each other, as is made by the labouring classes in Great Britain. Amongst the many societies established for the benefit of both the body and the mind, friendly societies stand pre-eminent. These praiseworthy insti- [inst- institutions] tutions [institutions] have saved thousands from the parish, and have drawn forth the heartfelt gratitude of thousands who have been recipients of the aid afforded them by those societies. Humanity, benevolence, and compassion, are characteristics of the English working man. He can feel, and does feel, for his neighbour in affliction, and comes to his relief. When in health and work he cul- [cl- cultivates] tivates [rivets] a compassionate disposition; thinks upon the distresses incident to human life, and takes his part. in devising the means of relieving them. The establish- [establishment] ment [men] of sick and funeral societies, isa proof that the English working man bears in mind the great com- [command] mand- Thou [and- Thou Thou] shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Scarcely is there a village in the kingdom but can boast of its Friendly Society, and in the cities and large towns they are numerous, and their good effects are acknowledged by all parties. The spirit of sympathy in the breast of the British labourer would seem to be unbounded, and ready to manifest itself at every oppor- [upper- opportunity] tunity [unity] hence sick societies are not now confined to towns and villages, and to adult persons, the working man sees another opening for the exercise of his philan- [plan- philanthropy] throphy, [trophy] and sick, and funeral societies are now being established in the larger factories in the Huddersfield dis- [district] trict, [strict] where itis [its] well known thereare [therefore] thousands of females, and young persons, who are liable to accident, sickness, and death, for whom no provision of the kind has be- [before] fore been made, but who are now being provided for in all the above circumstances. In this labour of love and duty to their neighbour, and with a view to fulfil tho duties of humanity, benevolence and compassion to- [towards] wards each other, the working men in the employ of Messrs. John Brooke and Sons, Armitage Bridge, have been sometime engaged; and those employed by Messrs. D. Shaw, Son, and Co., have just now estab- [stables- established] lished [wished] a society at the large factory at Honley; and those in the employ of Messrs. Starkey Brothers, Long- [Longroyd] royd Bridge, are about following the laudable example. These societies are worthy of all encouragement, as tending to cultivate a spirit of self-reliance and economy amongst the young, and will be far more preferable than a precarious subscription, which has been their only resource before; whercas [whereas] they will now have a to assistance in their own right, in cases of acci- [acct- accident] dent, sickness, &c. THE Late Pic SHow.-On [Show.-On] Wednesday night last the committee belonging to the Honley Association for encouraging the labouring classes to keep and feed good bred pigs, met at the Coach and Horses public- [public house] house (according to previous arrangement), for the purpose of examining and discharging all accouuts [accounts] connected with the late pig show. We understand that after all expenses were paid, the treasurer had a balance left in hand of between 7 and 8. This is an en- [encouragement] couragement [encouragement] for the annual continuance of the asso- [ass- association] ciation, [cation] and we believe will be looked upon with satis- [sates- satisfaction] faction by the inhabitants generally. We have to con- [contradict] tradict [tract] a report which some designing party has set on foot relative to the dinner which was provided and partook of by the committee and their friends after the show. The report has been circulated that the dinner was paid for ont of the funds raised by the association. This report, we are informed, is wholly without foundation. Man Misstnc.-On [Mastic.-On] Wednesday last, a person residing in Honley, of the name of John Dyson, a farmer, and between fifty and sixty years of age, left his house on the above day, at noon, saying to his wife, that he was going to fodder the cows. Time passed on, and with him not returning she thought he had gone to New Mill fair, which was held on that day. Up to the time of writing he has not been heard of, although enquiries have been made in the various villages around. In consequence, his wife and family are suffering the greatest distress and alarm. TEMPERANCE LEcTURE--On [Lecture--On] Wednesday evening last, a temperance lecture was delivered in the Methodist New Connexion preaching-room, Honley, by Mr. J. Addle- [Addles haw] shaw, [Shaw] agent to the British Temperance Association. The lecture was well attended, and many seemed much impressed with the statements advanced. Notice to TRADESPEOPLE.-In our advertising columns will be seen an advertisement from a cer- [er- certain] tain individual residing in Honley giving notice that he will not be answerable for any debt or debts which his wife may contract. We cannot question the jus- [us- justice] tice [ice] of such notice, but we can congratulate the fair wives of Yorkshire that the cause for notives [Notices] of this kind are few and far between. SLAITHWAITE. Marriaces [Marriages] at Cuurcu.- [Cur.- Cur] The Lord Bishop of Ripon has granted a license for the publication of banns and solemnization of marriages in the church or chapel of Slaithwaite-cum-Lingards, near Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field, for parties, or either of them resident in the chapelry and by the same license assigns all the fees payable for the same to the incumbent and clerk, and which will be the same as at Huddersfield. This has been done at the instance and expense of the Earl of Dartmouth, with the consent of the respective vicars and patrons of the parish churches of Huddersfield and Almondbury, in which the townships of Slaithwaite and Lingards are respectively situate. The noble Earl has also commuted all tithes, offerings, fees, and house dues, so as to prevent any future collision between the vicars and the parishioners. The license was read in Slaith- [Snaith- Slaithwaite] waite Church on Sunday afternoon last, when a sermon as to the dnty [duty] of family religion was preached by the Rev. C. A. Hulbert, M.A., Incumbent, and a collection made for the expenses of warming and lighting the church, in which there are now three services every Sunday, besides one in the licensed school-room at Upper Slaithwaite. The privilege of marriages was attached in ancient times to the chapel of Slaithwaite, -- but was suspended under a general Act of Parliament about a century ago the last previous marriage was in the year 1745. Society FoR [For] Promotine [Promoting] SpaDE [Spare] HUSBANDRY AND STALL FEEepING.-The [Keeping.-The] seventh annual meeting of this excellent society was held last Wednesday evening in the National School, under the presidency of the respected incum- [income- incumbent] bent the Rev. C. A. Hulbert, M.A,, who was supported on his right by F. Thynne, [Then] Esq of Westminster, prin- [pain- principal] cipal [principal] steward to the Earl of Dartmouth, and on his left by the Rev. C. Wardroper, of Farnley Tyas. The pro- [proceedings] ceedings [proceeding] were of a most interesting character. Practical addresses were delivered by the gentlemen present, and his lordship's usual prizes awarded by F. Thynne, [Then] Esq. The demand upon our columns this week for rerorts [reports] of local meetings preclude us inserting the letters and reports, kindly placed at our disposal by the worthy in- [incumbent] cumbent, [cum bent] but we shall have very great pleasure in re- [returning] turning to the subject next week, when we purpose giving a full report. Eventne [Event] CiassEs [Classes] AND LecturEs-We [Lectures-We] have placed before us a syllabus of classes, which have just been opened in the Church and National Schools, for the pur- [our- purpose] pose of diffusing a higher and more extended knowledge in writing, arithmetic, geography, grammar, composition, and history, amongst the operative population of the village. We observe that the plan is under the imme- [Mme- immediate] diate [date] direction of the incumbent, assisted by Mr. Mellor and other teachers-circumstances in themselves which form a sufficient guarantee for the character of the in- [instruction] struction [instruction] to be inculcated. In addition to the classes plain practical lectures on sacred and scientific subjects are to be delivered at intervals-in fact, it is to be a Mechanics' Institution in miniature. The idea is de- [deserving] serving of success. ALMONDBURY. Game Act Conviction.-Two labouring men, named James Mossley and George Bedford, were charged, at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Tuesday, before J. Armi- [Arm- Armitage] tage, [age] Esq., with trespassing on the property of Mr. Senior, in search of game, on Sunday, the 3rd instant. Mr. Clough defended. The information was laid by Mr. Senior, and the charge was proved by Charles Hill, a watcher in the employ of B. N. R. Batty, Esq., from whose statement it appeared that on Monday morning in going towards Woodside, a little after ten o'clock, he rose six partridges, and about an hour afterwards heard a gun fired, and on going towards the spot whence the sound seemed to come, he observed the two defendants running across a turnip field, Mossley having a dog and a gun with him, which he immediately took to pieces, and secreted on his person. The dog was ranging about the field, and had started a rabbit, which was seized by Hill, and put into his pocket. For the defence three witnesses were examined, who swore that they were in company with the defendants on the going, or our transit Sunday morning in question, and denied that Mossley had a gun, or that they had trespassed at all on Mr. Senior's property, as stated by Hill. According to their version, Mossley had been on an errand to see a person in the locality. the witnesses, one of whom was a mem- [men- member] ber [be] of the Huddersfield Naturalist Society, accompany- [accompanying] ing him, and indulging their curiosity on the road by collecting insects, but had no such idea as searching after game. Mr. Clough contended there was no case. Bedford was discharged, and Mossley convicted in the penalty of 20s. and expenses. DEWSBURY. A Camp Drowxep [Dregs] In a Tus.-On [Us.-On] Saturday last, an inquest was held before Thomas Taylor, Esq., deputy coroner, at the Saville's Arms Inn, Dewsbury, on view of the body of Mary Naylor, aged six years and six months, who appears to have gone unperceived out of her father's house abont [about] half-past six o'clock on Friday morning last, and was not scen [scene] alive a quarter-pest scven, seven] a.m., George Newsome, a carpet weaver, was fastening a clothes line to a hook driven into the side of his house, when he saw a child's frock, which he knew belonged to the deceased, floating in a tub containing urine collected for scouring wash. The tub' which belonged to Joseph Naylor, the deceased's father, was standing uncovered in a place intended for coals, and partitioned off from the yard by a dry wall between three and four feet high in the inside, but almost level with the surface on the outside, in consequence of an accumulation of ashes. The deceased's stepmother had, a few minutes previously, been enquiring for her, and Newsome, on seeing the frock, was so startled that instead of taking out the body he ran to call the father, who is the engine-tenter ata [at] coal pit about one hundred yards from the spot. Some little time elapsed before Newsome got admitted intothe [into the] engine-house,-and then, in consequence of his bungling statement, the father con- [continued] tinued [continued] for several minuest [minutes] to draw up corves of coal outof [out of] the pit,-and afterwards, as the latter was proceeding to Newsome's house, where he supposed the body was lying, he saw the frock in the tub and at once took out deceased, who was lying with her face downward and quite dead. Her tongue was protruding, and her mouth and nose were covered with froth. There was also the mark of a biow [bow] near her right ear, and it is supposed that whilst walking on the wall, she slipped and fell sideways into the tub, as it was proved that the wall was whole on Thursday afternoon, but on Friday morniny [morning] the corner was observed to be partially down. The jury returned a verdict of Found drowned and at their request the coroner severely reprimanded New- [Newsome] some for his thoughtlessness and inhumanity in having neglected immediately to release the child and alarm the neighbours, as it was probable that the deceased had not been many minutes in the tub when first discovered, but was allowed to continue immersed for a quarter of an hour or more afterwards.-This is the third inquest which has taken place within a short time on persons coming to their deaths in the same yard the last having been held a few months ago on an old woman who was suffocated by falling head foremost into a narrow tub in a stable, and containing wash to the depth of a foot only. FataL [Fatal] CoLLiery [Colliery] AccipeNt.-An [Accident.-An] explosion from fire damp took place at the Dam Ing Pit, in Whitley Lower, last Tuesday morning, and Danicl [Daniel] Kaye, a hurrier, nearly twelve years old, was killed, and his three elder brothers were severely burnt. An inquest was held on view of the body of Daniel Kaye, last Thursday, before Mr. Taylor and sixteen respectable jurymen. The en- [enquiry] quiry [query] was very long, and the evidence went to show that James Ramsden, Messrs. James Milnes Stansfeld and Co.'s bottom steward, had not been over the pit previous to the work going on, and that in consequence of a door having been left open by some person un- [unknown] known there was an accumulation of ffoul [foul] air in the pit. The jury retired for upwards of two hours, and ultimately returned a verdict, That the deceased was accidentally killed, but they expressed their opinion that they considered that it is the duty of bottom stewards to go through the pits every morning before the men, although in this case they thought there had been no intentional wrnt [went] of caution. HALIFAX. Tract Soctery.-The [Scorer.-The] annual meeting of this institution was held on Wednesday evening, Mr. William Jones attending as a deputation from the parent society. The Revs. J. Pridie, [Pride] P. R. Willans, G. B. Scott, and other friends, addressed the meeting, which was much thinner than usual, owing to the meeting of the Anti-State Church Society, held the same evening, in the Odd-Fellows' Hall. Lecture.- Tue Diesiry [Desire] or Lasour. -On [Labour. -On] Tuesday evening, the Rev. Newman Hall, B.A., of Hull, delivered an excellent and interesting lecture on the Dignity of Labour, in connection with Temperance; Frank Crossley, president of the temperance society, being chairman. The attendance was respectable and nu- [numerous] merous. [numerous] The eloquence of the reverend gentleman created much enthusiasm, Mr. Eagland Bray, grocer, offering to purchase 1,000 copies of the lecture (if printed), and distribute them gratuitously. Bsr [Bar] (INDEPENDENT), SCARBOROUGH.- [SCARBOROUGH] On Monday evening, a sermon was preached in Harrison- [Harrison] road chapel, by the Rev. Newman Hall, B.A., of Hull, on behalf of the above newly-opened place of worship, at Scarborough, when upwards of 20 was collected. LrecturE.- [Lecture.- Popery or No Popery. [Popery] Yesterday evening, Mr. Samuel Kydd, [Kidd] a lecturer of considerable talent, well known among the extreme liberal party, delivered a lecture on the above subject, in the Odd- [Oddfellows] Fellows' Hall. SuicipE [Suicide] at Bricuouse.-A [Brighouse.-A] middle-aged man, of the name of Jeremiah Avison, put a period to his existence by hanging himself, in his own house. An inquest was held over the body on Monday last, at the Wellington Inn, but the state of his mind at the time of his com- [committing] mitting [sitting] the fatal deed was not clearly shown. DEATH IN THE StTREETS.-A [Street.-A] little girl, named Mar- [Margaret] garet [great] Brennan, whilst her mother was on her way from the workhouse to the relieving officer, to obtain a certi- [certain- certificate] ficate [fact] for her child's admission into the workhouse, -the authorities there having refused admittance until such certificate was obtained,-the child died, in Gibbet- [Gibbet street] street, and an inquest passed over the body on Tuesday last, at the Fleece Inn, when a verdict was returned, Died by the visitation of God, death being accelle- [accede- accelerated] rated from the want of medical advice. THe [The] Ropsery [Ropers] In Norracate [Correct] at Mr. BaLernNa's, [baleen's] JEWELLER.-At length there is some hope of the per- [perpetrators] petrators [portraits] of the large and daring robbery which took place in July last, when upwards of 800 worth of gold and silver articles were stolen one Saturday evening, or Sunday morning, being brought to justice. On Monday, at the Town Hall, Halifax, Martin M'Guire, [M'Guide] the man who was brought up at Liverpool, in company with Sirrell [Surely] the London jeweller, and from that place sent down to be brought before the magistrates here, was placed before their worships charged with burglariously [burglaries] steal- [stealing] ing a gold watch, the property of Mr. Lewis Balerna. [Bernal] Mr. Healing, Superintendent of Police at Liverpool, having produced the watch in question, Mr. Balerna [Bernal] was sworn, and identified the watch as his property, having missed it along with other valuable things from his shop in Northgate on the 14th July last. Proof was further given of the watch having been pawned for 8 10s., with Messrs. Smith and Hammond, pawn- [pawnbrokers] brokers, Liverpool, by the prisoner. The further exami- [exam- examination] nation being adjourned to Thursday, on that day Mr. Simon, barrister, on behalf of the prisoner, made applica- [applicant- application] tion [ion] to ask certain questions of the witnesses examined on Monday, but the bench, after retiring with their clerk to consider the matter, refused such application. Mr. Thomas Hill, watchmaker, Coventry, being sworn, declared that he, assisted by his brother, had made the watch; that it was sold to Mr. Balerna [Bernal] in March, 1849 ; that he was able to identify it from certain private marks which they had placed on the watch whilst being manfactured. [manufactured] The watch was taken to pieces in court, and Mr. Hill re-examining it, declared the initials, H.B, of the firm, and the original number was still upon the watch but the outside number had been defaced. On cross examination, he maintained the same statement, and in reply to Mr. Simon said he was not aware acids were used to enable the number to be inserted on the dial, but acids were used to colour the dial, nor did he know that the bottom of the dial was scraped to prevent the acids corroding the steel. He had been a watch manufacturer twelve years, and knew the busincss [business] in all its processes. Mr. Simon wishing to examine the witnesses, state the case for the prisoner, call other witnesses, and comment upon the evidence, the bench having again deliberated, would allow him to call witnesses, state the prisoner's case, but not comment on the evidence, upon which he declined proceeding further, except asking that bail might be taken for the prisoner's appearance, which was at once refused. The prisoner was fully committed to York Castle (in which he was placed the same evening) to await his trial at the Winter Gaol Delivery. JOHN PREST AND ANOTHER v. Mayor &c. or Hatt [That] Fax.-Mr. Law Bitt.-We [Butt.-We] have elsewhere given the report of this case which came on in the Court of Queen's Bench on Wednesday last. The rule is not discharged, as reported in the Suz [Su] of Wednesday even- [evening] ing, but enlarged, though Mr. Wavell's friends consider the decision entirely in their favour, as the principle of the bill was admitted, and the judges give Mr. Wavell credit for the steps he took in the matter. The affair is simply one of party, but we trust that the money of the ratepayers will not be used or misapplied either for the gratification of this clique or the other, but that all honest men will unite to promote the improve- [improvement] ment [men] of the town and the well-being of its inhabitants- [inhabitants two] two desideratums [desideratum] which have scarcely shown signs of existence until recently, since the corporation was formed,-the streets being at present very dirty, much out of repair, and some of them, particularly the busy thoroughfares, so narrow as to be inadequate for the safety of passengers and the transmission of mer- [Mr- merchandize] chandize. [chandler] PRoFESSIONAL [Professional] CHARGES OF THE TOWN-CLERK.-The cause Regina v. Prest, came on for hearing in the Queen's Bench, on Wednesday.-In this case a rule had been granted calling upon the town-council of the borough of Halifax, and also upon the town-clerk, to show cause why an order which had been made by the town-council, requiring the treasurer to pay to Mr. Wavell, the town-clerk, certain professional charges, shouldnotbe [shouldn't] quashed. The question was whether the work in respect of which the charges were made, was or was not within Mr. Wavell's duties as town-clerk, for, if so, he was not entitled to make any charge, but his services were remunerated by his It appeared that the borough of Halifax had received a charter of incorpora- [in corpora- incorporation] tion [ion] in the month of March, 1848, and that in the month of April in the following year, Mr' Wavell had been appointed town-clerk. Ithad [That] become necessary to levy the sum of 2,360 by a borough-rate, and the mayor issued his precept for that purpose; but the overseers of the respective parishes disputing the legality of the proceedings, it was thought prudent by the town-council that the town-clerk should go up to London and take counsel's opinion upon this subject. The expense thus occasioned now formed the subject of dispute. When the town-clerk was appcinted, [appointed] a scheme had been drawn up by which his duties were defined, and it was contended that the work for which the disputed charges wore made was such as he was bound to perform by virtue of his office as town-clerk. On the other side it was contended that by the contract the town-clerk was entitled to be paid the rsual [usual] pro- [professional] fessional [professional] charges for soliciting any bills in parliament, or conducting any actions or suits in law or equity.- [equity] The Solicitor-Gencral, [Solicitor-General] Mr. Cowling, and Ma. Atherton. on Saturday last showed cause against the rule.- [rule] Mr. Peacock, on the part of the townclerk, [town clerk] now followed on the same side.-Sir F. Thesiver [These] and Mr. Hill were then heard in support of the rule.-Lord Campbell said the application was made under the Ist [Its] Victoria, cap. 78, sec. 44, a most salutary enact- [enactment] ment, [men] which the court must take care not to fritter away. That statue vested a discretion in this court to see whether there had been a mismanagement of the borough funds; but it must not be. supposed that there had been such a mismanagement merely because a claim had been made which could not be enforced. Ii was the duty of the court not to lock at any mere technical objections which might be raised, but to see whether there had been any grievance which they ought to redress. The present application was made to set aside the order altogether. It was said that the town-clerk had had no retainer under the xezl [Cecil] of the corporation to do the work; but the business had been done fairly and bora [Boar] fide for the benefit of the rate- [ratepayers] payers, and the party was entitled to be paid, thoush [though] there had been no retainer under seal. There was uo ease which showed that where such a claim had been made and paid this court would order the monvy [money] to be refunded under this act of parliament. The great question was, whether the business done was not in- [included] cluded [eluded] in the town-clerk's salary; and his (Lord Vamp- [Campbell] bell's) [s] opinion was, that it was not. The main items in the bill were such as he was entiled [entitled] to eharge [charge] for, It was agreed that he was to be paid the usual pro- [professional] fessional [professional] charges for conducting suits at law or suits in equity. If, then, he was to be paid for conducting actions or suits, he was also entitled to charge for all that was done with a view io the action or suit, or to prevent the same. If Mr. Wavell was to charge when a proceeding resulted in litigation, surcly [surely] he was also entitled to make his charge where ltign- [Latin- litigation] tion [ion] had been prevented, as in the present case. by the laudable exertions which he had made under the sanction of the council. The sum of 54 would thus be clearly payable to him; but, as some of the items might be more doubtful, the rule would be enlarred, [enlarged] in orde [order] that the Master of the court, who kad [ad] heard the judgment, might examine the bill and report thereon to the court.-Mr. Justice Coleridge and Mr. Justice Erle [Ere] having expressed similar opinions, the rule was enlarged accordingly. AntLStaTre [Intestate] Soctery.-An [Scorer.-An] overflowing and enthusiastic meeting was held on Wednesday evening, at the Odd-Fellows Hall, F. Crossley, Esq. (brother or 5 LINDLEY. Granp [Grand] ConcEerT.-The [Concert.-The] committee of the Lindley Mechanics' Institution gave 2 grand concert im [in] the of the Institute on Thursday evening week. The attend- [attendance] ance [once] was numerous and very respectable. The principal vocalists engaged for the occasion were Mis. [Is] Sunderiand, [Sunderland] Mrs. L.

A letter of apology was read by the president from the latter gentlemai, [gentleman] who, from unforeseen circumstances, waa [was] unavoidably absent, in consequence of which Mr. Hirst, of Huddersfield. took his parts.

No doubt the attendance was greatly increased from the cireumstance [circumstance] of Hdwavd [Waved] Miall, [Mill] Esq., and the Rev. John Gordon, who are visiting the provinces and agitating the question, being expected to give addresses. Both these gentlemen. in alluding to the Papal aggression, spoke of the folly of supportine [Sporting] principles founded on error, similar to those brought te bear against the Catholics by the Establishment, and the intolerance displayed by the Church in maintaining the supremacy of the Queen in matters of religion, yet, while doing so, not defending the course adopted by the Pope. Tue Puseyire [Pasture] Section or THE CuurRcH.-One [Church.-One] of these reverend gentlemen declared on Sunday afternoon last, in a sermon preached in Stainland Chureh, [Church] alluding io the recent Gorham decision, that the Church ha been trampled upon by the State, and, singular to re- [relate] late, though the discourse was directly setting forth the Roman Catholic arrogance and falsity, on the alter table of the church in question are two silver camllesticks [candlesticks] with a gilded plate in the centre, whilst the tar cloth and book-marks are profusely ornamente l [ornament l] wit and the service distinguished by numerous bowins, [bowing] the disuse of the black gown, and variations in the conduct ing of worship from most of the churches in the locality. It is high time that our orthodox archbishups [Archbishop] and bishops paid a visit to these model boarding schools for the education and bringing up of Roman Catholics. in order that these sacred edifices may be puvified [purified] of such dangerous deceits, and restored to the pure Protestant faith, for which, and for which alone, hey were built, endowed, and consecrated. LONGWOOD. WesLeYaAN [Wesleyan] RerorM [Reform] MEETING.-On Tuesday evening last, a meeting on Wesleyan Reform took place in the Baptist school-room, Longwood. Notwithstanding the inclemency of the weather, the room was filled in every part; there could not be fewer than 300 preseut. [present] The platform was occupied by office bearers from varivus [various] parts of the circuit. Mr. Joseph Broadbent was called to the chair, and the meeting was addressed by the Rev. James Everrett, [Everett] who in a very impressive and well received speech, enlarged on the cause, rise, and pro- [progress] gress [grass] of the reform movement. The mecting [meeting was also addressed by Mr. William Kaye, of Lockwood. Mr. F. Vickerman, one of the suspended local preachers, and by Mr. John Hanson, of Crosland Moor. SKELMANTHORPE. MATRIMONIAL PLEasantRiEs.- Pleasantness.- Pleasantness] Two unfortunate mortals whom fate, and not heaven, has boul [soul] together in, to them, the miserable bonds of matri- [mari- matrimony] mony, [money] appeared at the Guildhall, Hudiiersfeld, [Huddersfield] on Saturday, to obtain the interference of the presiding magistrates to arrange certain little matrimonial quarels, [square] which they could not scttle [settle] themselves. The unfortunate husband, Joseph Fisher, was charged by his equally unfortunate' wife, Jane Fisher, with violent ill- [treatment] treatment. We shall not give the interesting detuils [details] of this affair, but simply state, that the evidence was deemed by the bench sufficient to justify them in binding the defendant over, himself in 20 and two sureties of 10 each, to keep the peace towards his wife for the space ef twelve weeks. NEWTOWN. Women's QuarreELs.-Mury [Quarrel.-Mary] Ann Dyson was charged at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Saturday last, with committing an assault upon Eliza Shaw. Some time ago it appears that Mary Ann suspected Eliza of cirewating [creating] certain scandalous reports to the damage and injury of her liege lord and master, in consequence of which, on the 8th instant, she paid Eliza a visit io learn whether they were true or false. From being very polite the parties, unfortunately, degenerated into being very vulgar, and Mary Ann gave Eliza a slap over the face; this was the head and front of her offence, ior [or] which she was fined 1s. and expenses. CUMBERWORTH HALF. Damacine [Damaging] a Door.-aAt [Door.-at] the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Saturday last, Thomas Taylor was charged with damaging a certain door, the property of William Lorg- [Lord- Bottom] bottom, on the 4th instant, to the amount of 61. The prosecutor said that on the night of the 4th instant defendant came and threw a large stone at his door, committing the damage of which he complained. Evidence was examined, and as the neither appeared to be very clear nor henious, [genius] it was dis- [discharged] charged on Taylor paying expenses. MELTHAM. VILLAGE DisputEs.-Our [Dispute.-Our] readers will remember from an article which appeared in our columns under the head of Meltham, on the 2nd inst., that the inhabitants of this usually quiet and peaceable locality have not of late been living in the same amicable manner they were represented to be some short time ago. From the examination of the case of Armitage (on behalf of a town's meeting), v. Thomas Broudbent [Broadbent] and Georye [George] Bottomley, (the surveyors of the town,) brought before the Huddersfield magistrates on Tuesday last, we learnt that a Mr. Samuel Lee, shopkeeper, occupying premises at Shopnook, [Shop nook] lately obtained permission of the sur- [Sir- surveyors] veyors [surveyor] to construct a certain drain, in front of his premises, in order that the water might be carried off more effectually from his warehouse. It further ap- [appeared] peared [pared] that this sewer when completed, excited the attention of some very respectable ratepayers, who thought a drain for such a purpose could not by any possibility require to be six feet wide, aud [and] extending the whole frontage of Mr. Lee's premises,-and in fact to become a cellar. Believing that so great a privilexze [privilege] was never intended to have been granted, Inquiries were made into the subject, and a town's meeting cou- [Co- covered] vened [vend] to adopt measures for its removal. Our readers are already aware of the result of that mecting. [meeting] Deter- [Determined] mined to push the matter to a decision, the town, through Mr. Armitage, appeared at the Guildhall, as above stated, to prosecute the surveyors for neglect of duty in not preventing Mr. Lees making the encroach- [encroachments] ments [rents] he had done. Mr. Floyd defended, and after hearing several witnesses, during which there appeared to be some ill feeling existing between the partics, [parties] the casé [case] was referred to Mr. Mallinson Abby. CLAYTON WEST. INDEPENDENT CHaPeL, [Chapel] CLayton [Clayton] West.-The second of a winter series of special sermons, now delivering at the above chapel, was preached by the Rev. J. R.
