8 THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1850. PAPAL AGGRESSION. MEETING LAST NIGHT. In pursuance of a very numerous and most respectably- [respectably signed] signed requisition, presented to the Constable (W. Willans, Esa.) [Sea] a few days ago, in reference to the late assumption of spiritual supremacy in this country by the Pope, a public meeting was convened for, and held last night (Friday) in the Hall, Ramsden-street. The chair was announced to be taken at six o'clock, shortly after which hour the hall was densely crowde [crowd] and a most and interesting spectacle.

Willans, Esq.) on rising, was re- [received] ecived [received] with loud applause, and after opening the meeting im [in] the usual way, by reaime [regime] the requisition, said-lf they giwiccd [wicked] never so cursuvily [cursorily] at the requisition, upon the pre- [presentation] seniation [sensation] of which he hai [hair] had the hoacar [hoar] of calling that mectiivy, [active] they could not but be struck by the unprece- [increase- unprecedented] Rev. avo [avon] dented number of signatures attache to it, and upena [upon] closer invesfeation [investigation] they could not fai [fair] to discover an ainal- [final- final] gainsiion [Hanson] cf parties move gener [gene] and more extensive than he remembered ever to have noticed upon any siiuilar [similar] do- [denied] enineut [eminent] since he had the heneur [honour] of being connected with the boreugh [borough] of Huddersfield. The subject must have been ouc [our] of paramount interest in the estimeiion [estimation] of thuse [these] who had siened [signed] it--to liave [have] ol-literatud [ol-literature] the deep lines aid breken [broken] down the strung hedges of party distinction among men ofall [fall] political and ail religious assuciations [association] into one coramen [Craven] fold-(cheers)-gentlemen differing fromm [from] each other as considerably as the conservative differs fyors [mayors] the lowest radical, or as the dif- [if- differs] fers [fears] frum [from] the lowest dissenter, and ene conld [cold] not but wish tect [test] the which characterised the requisition mivhs [moves] also characterise the mecting [meeting] which had assombled [assembled] apeu [ape] it, and ia order thereto, woull [will] they allow him tu reconmmend [recommend] to them the maxim of one cf their greatest philssupacrs, [philippics] in things essential, miluy, [mil] in ichings [Etchings] inditie- [indie- indifferent] rent, liberty-in all things charity. (Cheers.) If the object of their meeting was to infringe even in the slightest. upon any personal right, civil or religious freedom, but more particularly still, if the object of the meeting was to revive the principles of religious mtclerance [clearance] and persecution, he Was juite [quite] sure that avery [very] large preportion [proportion] of the names aitached [attached] to the requisition would not hare appeared upon it. (Cheers.) He took it so fares he was aequainted [acquainted] with the gentlemen whose naines [nines] wereattached, [we reattached] that they would avow those erent [rent] principles of Prutestantisn [Protestantism] which reco; [recon] nise [nine] the right of every man to chouse, [house] to profcs [proofs] propagate his own religious faith-(checrs)-a [faith-(cheers)-a] right for the exercise of which he was responsible tu God alone, but 2 right which must be limited in reference to the rights of other men and he was quite sure they were not met on the present occasion for the purpose of and restraining the free spiritual actions of their Roman Catho- [Cath- Cathodic] dic [Dick] felliow-townsmen. [fellow-townsmen] (Applause.) The svoject [subject] was a exciting ene, and he could not couceive [conceive] what a man was inade [Adelina] uf [of] who was not affected by wl at had recently taken place. There were some who had thousht [thought] that as Dissenters from the Established Church they had no parti- [part- particular] euler intercet [interest] in the present question. He musi [music] declare, however, that he had no sympathy wh with such persons, and he would not regard this as a mere quarrel between two churekes-the [churches-the] Church that is in and the ehureh [here] that is vut,-but [but,-but] as one on which they ought to act in unity so faras [fares] they could consistently with truth and the principles they professed. (Cheers.) He was not a uiilk [milk] and water, bet a non-compromising-and at the same time a Protestant Dissenter, and of the two things he was more a Protestant than a Dissenter-(hcear, [Dissenter-(hear] hear)-but if they thought his dissent world in any way disqualify him he should be most haypy [happy] to vacate the position of chairman to any one who might be considered more impartial. (Hear.) He did feel an interest in this question he was not ashame [shame] to avew [ave] it. He belonged to a denomination which boasted of a bistory- [history- history] 2 glorious history-which enshrines in its principles and its ractice-Protestantism practice-Protestantism] while, however, he avowed this, let him tell his Cathoiic [Catholic] fellow-townsmen that whiist [whilst] it had always been dinmetically [dogmatically] opposed te the doctrines and and discipline aud [and] con- [constitution] stitution [institution] ot the Church of Rome, yet, nutwichstanding, [notwithstanding] it had always been a consistent aud [and] zealous advocate of their elaims-(cheers)-and [claims-(cheers)-and] hed [he] never drawn back trom [from] that struggle until it placed the Roman Catholic on the side of bis Protestant neighbour iv the British houge [house] of parliament. He apprcbended [apprehended] it was not the intcution [institution] of any gentleman there to infiiuge [unique] in the slightest upon the religious Rberty [Robert] of ther [the] Roman Cathulie [Catholic] fellow subjects-(hear) ; ifse, [ise] he was wviie [view] sure that the dexominiation [examination] he referred to would be the lest to accede to such wn atcempt; [attempt] on the eontrary [contrary] it would use the strongest exertions to prevent the limiting of the privileves [privileges] of that denomination.

Taking these two thinzs [things] In conjunction, it was Sot tvo [to] to sav, [save] that this may, in a great measure, have contribatel [contribute] to the receut [recent] act of the pesjle [pestle] of Rome to enforce wun [win] this country a Papist hierarchy.

They might devend [defend] upen [upon] it they were indebted for the late nrozeedi .es [proceed .es] of the Pope move to enensies [agencies] within than withort [without] the church. (Applauwe.) [Applause] might be the cause, however, they had so deal csith [Smith] the thet [the] that the Pope of Home had already appointed oae [one] archbishop and two bishops in this country-a whieh [which] could net be Guoon's [Goon's] preven [prevent] eee [see] aight [eight] shan [san] a ee 4 invesion [invention] of the tation [station] of he an be ett [et] at suave )-a decided viu- [vi- vain] 10n n] of tne [te] British eonstitntion, [institution] (FH urar, [arr] aud [and] No, no. ) The Ker [Er] then read au extract from a sermon lately preaciecat [precipitate] Southwark, by the Rev.

(Laughter.) Well, then they might suppose 15s. in the pound was no bad dividend. But there was 5s. unpaid ; and how was it to be paid Mr, Wiseman thought that the recent encouragement received from the British government, rendered it only necessary that he should present himself be- [before] fure [fire] the English people and they would go hand in hand with them-he would find out his mistake. (Cheers It wasall [wall] very well to begin to play with Englishmen. Bonaparte said, at the battle of Waterloo, I can beat these men, but IT can net get them to yield-they won't give in laughter)- [laughter] and he (Mr. M) could tell the Pope and Mr. Wiseman that they would be bad to beat. With the permission of the meeting, he was going to surmise something which, how- [however] ever, was not yet true, and he hoped never would be. Suppose Dr. Wiseman, or Dr. Foolishman, [Foolish man] or any other man, obtained this power, they would not be content to maintain the simple jurisdiction over their own people, but would wish to exercise asupremacy [supremacy] over the vicars, curates, &c., of the Established Chureh-the [Church-the] dissenting ministers, aye, and even the bishops themselves. Certainly, it would be a very foolish thing for so many men to submit to this assumption. (Laughter and cheers.) He asked, then, were they willing to have their country divided into Roman Catholic bishoprics (Loud cries of 'No, no Never, never. Would they oppose it (' Yes, yes. He knew that when they said they would he might fairly confide in their integrity and goodness. He supposed his holiness would come to London-if he could get-(laughter)-and going to our revered and beloved Queen-(cheers)-would talk about being the master of the world-politically and socially-and tell her to take off her crown, and place it at his feet, when she might probably re- [receive] ceive [receive] it back again from his holiness's hands. Would they stand this (Loud cheers, and cries of No, no. ) Would they allow their sovereign to be insulted in this way (No, He had just one remark more to make. He hated Popery wherever it existed-not only in the Church of Rome but in the Church of England. It was the object of his abhorrence and detestation. He hated it in the first plase [place] on its own account, because it was ugly in itself. (Uheers.) [Cheers] He hated it in the second place because of the which it inflicted upon his fellow-men. He hated it in the third place, because it was derogatory to the honour of God Ged [Ge] made man npright-Popery [right-Popery] made him crawl on the earth. (Cheers.) Referring to the letter of Lord Juhn [John] Russell, Mr. Mallinson said that whilst they might talk ebout [about] tiie [tie] Church of Rome they should not forget that there was Popery in the Church of England, in Methodism, and other sects; but he would give them his word for it, that as leng [leg] as he saw there was Popery in Methodism he would labour unceasingly until he got it out. (Cheers.) Were they prepared to oppose Popery-to prevent that little spot of England being divided into little districts, vider [diver] the supremacy of the Pope Would they, as English Protestants, bear it not. for himself. Would they assist in attempting its prevention ('We will, and cheers.) Lot the Tories forget their Toryism, [truism] the Whigs their Whigyvery, [Recovery] and the Radicals their Radicalism, and forgetting their minor differences, unite, and pour such opposition upon corruption [correction] as would make them quail for the results. (Cheers.) He would not say a word against his Roman Catholic fellow-townsmen, because he had ever them as honourable merchants and tradesmen, hut of Popery he should continue to speak in condemnation. (Applause.) JOsEPH [Joseph] Brook, Esq., (Greenhead), on presenting him- [himself] sclt [salt] to support the resolution was received with rapturous applause, after which he said, that in undertaking to ad- [address] dyess [dress] them that evening he was perfectly sensible how inadequate he was to address them upon the great question which had been brought before them that evening. There was cne [ce] point to which he would address himself, and that was the necessity of unity. (Cheers.) They must not allow minor differences in their different churches and creeds to prevent unity of and practice in reference to the pretensions of the Pope. It had already been said more than once, that they had enemies in the Established Church what church was there that had not enemics [enemies] but it must uot [not] be concluded that because in any system of religion there were evils and corruptions that such a system was not founded upon the word of God. (Cheers.) All he said was, dou't [Du't] let any minor differences of this kind deter them from being more united upon the one great principle of opposition to the Popish aggression. (Hear, hear.) He was pleased with what Mr. Mallinson had observed. Let them be united in the one great purpose of maintaining the Protestant faith unshaken. (Hear.) He did not wish to detain them long, but he would just refer to Cardinal Wiseman's manifesto, in explanation of the acts of the See of Rome. It was a very ingenious mild document, and very pure in its sentiments; but Dr. Wiseman left the main points untouched. He did not tell them that the principles of the Romish [Rooms] discipline were at all altered, but passed over the subject altogether. They knew what kind of principles Rome practised in former days, and did the mceting [meeting] think they were changed. It was only because they ha-l no opportunity of practising them. (Cheers.) If they allowed the Romish [Rooms] priesthood to obtain a footing in this kiagdom [kingdom] and establish themselves, they might expect that step by step the Pope would encroach upon their priv [privy] Uezes [Uses] and liberties, (Cheers, and cries of No, no. He said, therefore, that Dr. Wiseman, however specious his letter might be, did not tell the public whether those principles which are so inimical to public liberty had been abolished. In addition to this, the letter said that the present government, although they would not aecede [secede] to this Pope's bull which had been promulgated, had long been aware through Lord Minto, of the existence of this ball. Lord John Russell, in his letter to the Bishop ef Durham, said they had never given their sanction for these proceedings of the Pope. If Lord Minto had ever seen such a documeut, [document] Lord John, occupying the position he did, must have known of its existence. He (Mr. Brook) believed it was a vile Roman Catholic announcement, which they would not dare to maintain. Dr. Wiseman, very wisely and very cautiously says, that Lord Minto saw this document, but he does not say that he made any observa- [observe- observations] tions [tins] upon it. Now when it was to be published, did they think that Lord Minto would not have said You tiay [tay] attempt it, but you will not succeed. (Hear, hear.) nyland [land] wili [will] never come under Popish discipline again. (iJear, [ear] hear.) It was on these grounds that he did believe that part of the story. As he had said before, he did not intend to enter into the principles of the Romish [Rooms] religion, but he must say, that anything which denied to them the power of reading the werd [ward] of God, pure and unadulterated, is an evil which they must all unite to oppose. (Cheers.) Tnere [There] were other principles of the Roman Catholics which were eyually [equally] opposed to all principles of religious liberty. Was uot [not] that sufficient to tell them that they must not alla [all] this religion to obtain an ascendancy in this country, which denied to Protestants the privilege of consulting and readiig [reading] the word of Seripture [Scripture] within themselves (Cheers.) If they read the Scripture they would find that the gift of the Holy Scriptures was attempted to be pur- [our- purchased] chased by money. They knew that indulgences were given for money. But why should they not say to the Romauists, [Romanists] as St. Paul said, Your money perish with you. (Cheers.) He (the speaker) thought he had a right to cali [cal] upon them to stand up for a religion which was pure in itseif, [its] and founded on the Word of God, and was the only rule of faith which they could trust in. (Cheers.) This was not 2 question of any particular sect. They were ali met toxether [together] as Protestants-not as sectarians, nor xs churchmen-to be united in one great principle as grounded in the Word of God and, therefore, they could not in justice to themselves, and in justice to their children, allow a religion to obtain that ascendency in the country which was to deprive them of those great and glorious principles ef the reformed religion. (Hear, hear.) In con- [conclusion] clusion, [conclusion] Mr. Brook said, he should merely express his per- [perfect] fect [fact] concurrence with the resolution, and he hoped they would not only allow its principles to actuate them in that meeting, but that they would be exercised unflinchingly in the domestic circle, avoiding that which is to deprive them of the free exercise of their judgment in the Scriptures. He trusted that this meeting would not pass over without leaving this impression upon their mitds, [midst] as it would be by theinselves [themselves] individually, not collectively, that this great tide was to be stemmed. (Loud applause.) The resolution was carried unanimously. The Rev. JostaH [Josiah] BatemMan, [Bateman] M.A. (vicar), then rose to move the second resolution, and said that it had given him, iz common with all present, the greatest possible delight to hear the resolution which had just passed, so ably supported by some of their chief laymen. (Hear, hear.) anxious was he that this meeting should not bear an ecclesiastical appearance, but that they should meet to- [together] gcther [gather] clergy, laity, and ministers, and unite hand in hand in this great work. (Hear, hear.) He thought the meeting bore a religious character, and it convinced him of the great importance of this et question. He had read the manifesto put out by Dr. Wiseman carefully. What struck hin [in] in reading the address were several things, first of all, under an apparent submission, there was something very threatening in it. Cardinal Wiseman stands upon his rights, as much as to say-and ought not any body of men to stand upon their rights plongh plough] high, plough low, we will have them, whether the country agrees or does not agree ; nothing shall take from us that which the Pope has given us. Then there comes a certain degree of enbarrassment [embarrassment] upon it,-and that is quite certain. (Hear, hear.) Our successive guvcrnments [governments] had gone so far in their concessions to Reme, [Mere] and lt is now very difficult, when they sce [se] the im [in] policy of going further, to draw back. Then again he saw ia this manifes [manifest] to, although there was no further professions breathed, yet there was no drawing back of any profes- [profess- professions] sions [Sons] and if Rome had her feet upon our necks at that moment not one word of that manifesto would be repeated. Lastly was insidivusness [insidiousness] in the manifestvu,-for [manifest,-for] Cardinal Wiseman endeavoured to throw dissension amongst. Pro- [Protestants] tastauts, [status] and put himself on a par with their Wesleyan friends as if Wesleyanism and Roman Catholicism had any thing in unisom. [unison] Wesleyanism, knit as it was to Holy Scripture, royal to the back bone, with no divided allegiance, and with hands free from blood. How is it with Rome (Cheers.) ome [one] neutralised Scripture Rome had a divided alleyiance, [alliance] and Rome had been drunken with the blood of tne [te] saints. (Cheers.) The resolution placed in his hands to propcse [propose] was- [was that] That if it could be shown that the jurisdiction assumed by the Pope was no infraction of the letter of the law, yet this meeting feels weil [well] assured that thet [the] fundamental principle of the censtitu- [constituent- constitution] tien [ten] is violated which declares that no forcign [foreign] prince ov poteutate, [potentate] spiritual or temporal, shall exercise any manner of jurisdiction or privilege, spiritual or ecclesiastical, within this realm or the dominions thereof. The latter portion of the resolution was a quotation from consisicnt [consistent] with this, they would eive [eve] Tin credit for inaliing [calling] en unintentional mistake. (Hear, hear.)

What did he Toean [Town] be that mean to say that Catholic emancipation was only the pound Well the next thing would be to send t gory. that act of parliament taken by members on entering the house, and by which it was intended to be shown that the Vope [Rope] had no power inthis [in this] country. It would be for him (the speaker) to show that he had no right-but to do this there were two things he must touch upon history and Scripture. (Hear.) These were two points which must be brought to bear upon the question. They must just go a little down the stream of English history. The reverend gentlumau [gentleman] then referred to the old story of two captive British boys being observed in the streets of Rome by Gre- [Re- Green] He was so interested in their appearance that he determined to propagate Christianity amongst their ances- [aces- ancestors] tors. According to this story, we are indebted in this country to an Augustine Monk for the introduction of Christianity but later investigation, said the speaker, had proved that two hundred years prior to this a Christian Church, with bishops, had existed amongst the Ancient Britons, and there wasreason [was reason] to believe that it ha-l first been preached here by St. Paul himself. (Cheers.) When it was sought originally to obtain allegiance to Rome, the Britons replied- We know of no allegiance to he whom you call Pope, except an allegiance of love. Augustine established the Roman Church, and they ran down side by side-always independent, always standing upon its own independence, It wasso [was] in the time of the Most when William the Norman came over to The moment William was king the Po; came to claim homage- No, said William, IT am the king ofa [of] free nation, and I will not pay you homage, nor di he. (Cheers.) They then came to his son, Henry I. The Pope came to him, and demanded that the bishops should receive their from him, instead of the king. Henry refused. He would have no such thing, and he was nearly excommunicated, when a compromise was arranged, by which the king was to appoint the bishops, the Pope to send the mitre and crozier. But even in these days, the palmiest days, when Rome was the most power- [powerful] ful [full] nation in Europe, she never dared to ask for what she was asking now. They next came to the weak profiigate [private] Ring John, who gave way to the Pope, and was followed by King Edward I., to whom the Pope appealed for a continuance of his power. Edward refused, and it came before the parliament, who decided that John could not grant his kingdom without the nation's consent. Shortly after this time Wickliffe sprung up, and sowed the seeds of that Reformation to which they owed their deliverance from Popish bondage. (Cheers.) This Reformation, he begged them most earnestly to remark, was not the act of testants, [test ants] but of Catholics, who reformed themselves. After alluding to the state of the nation, in Elizabeth's reign, the speaker proceeded to view the Romish [Rooms] Church in its religious aspect, and contended that no supremacy was ever granted to St. Peter by Christ, as the whole of his a ts subsequent to the time when, according to the Catholics, the power was conferred upon himtestified. [him testified] Thevicarquoted [Evicted] several instances in which Peter had given way to his fellow apostles in the appointment of bishops and other church dignitaries, and then concluded an cxcellentspeech by saying he could not tell them what he thought of Popery, but he would say this, that the time was coming when men should speak out, and call a spade a spade-a Papist a Papist- [Past] a Protestant a Protestant. (Hear, hear, and cheers.) There had been of late too much mincing up of words about the errors of the Church of Rome, and too much about our dear sister the Church of Rome, just as if she were our sister, instead of the mother of harlots. (Ap- [Applause] plause.) [clause] But to suffer her to throw her meshes over the British lion because she thinks he is asleep-to put fetters over our limbs, and our free hearts aud [and] free thoughts (cheers)-to suffer her to dishonour our Queen, and to em- [embarrass] barrass [brass] the government, would be to yield up a strong delu- [deli- delusion] sion. If this were to be so, they might go and write Ichabod, [Abode] Ichabod, [Abode] upon the threshold and door-post of the house. The reverend gentleman sat down amidst loud and repeated applause. Dr. TaYLor, [Taylor] briefly seconded the resolution. The Rev. J. GLENDENNING, in an eloquent speech, sup- [supported] ported the resolution, and expressed his pleasure in addressing suvh [such] an amalgamation of parties as he witnesscd [witness] around him. He was himself a Nonconformist, but he was a Protestant, and whilst the Protestantism of this country was at the present moment kindled almost into enthusiasm, he thought it behoveth [Beethoven] all who were truly Protestant in heart to turn that feeling to a proper account. The speaker said he should be sorry in any measure to restrict the reli- [deli- religious] gious [pious] liberty of his fellow-subjects, and all the opposition that he could accede to in this case would be that of reason and moral force. (Hear, hear.) He believed they owed the present aggression of the Pope to the support which successive governments had of late given to Roman Catho- [Cath- Catholicism] licism [laces] and, in conclusion, he pressed upon his hearers the necessity of making this a home question-one that should be thought of in the closet, and form the burden of their prayers. (Loud applause.) The resolution was then put, and carried with one dissentient. The Rev. F. A. WEsT [West] rose, on the call of the Chairman, to move the third resolution, and was received with mingled cheers and disapprobation. It was with very great diffi- [diff- difficulty] culty [guilty] that the rev. gentleman could obtain anything like a tolerable hearing, and the conduct of some portions of the meeting was anything but tolerant, christian-like, or even honourable. After standing for some time the uproar a little abated, and Mr. West proceeded to say that he had very great pleasure in witnessing the response which had been given to the previous resolutions. He thanked God, and took courage when he found that personal feelings were gradually allayed-when the voice of Protestantism had begun again te be sounded through the length and breadth of the land, reverberating from every rock, and borne on every breeze. He rejoiced that his fellow-towns- [townsmen] men had sent the chairman such a requisition -so characterised by the variety of religious and political senti- [sent- sentiments] ments [rents] which it embraced and embodied, and especialiy [especially] that so large a number were assembled together. (Hear, hear, hear.) They were ready to vindicate the truth ; they were ready to defend their rights-their constitu- [constitution- constitution] tion [ion] -and their Protestantism. (Great confusion.) By his love of posterity, by his goodwill to all men, and by his fealty to the invisible head of the church-he was a Pro- [Protestant] testant-( An [distant-( An -( An] Expeller -Cheers, groans, and hisses, which continued for some time). In reference to the Puseyite [Pursuit] party, Mr. West said if these men were truly honest they would at once vacate the emoluments which they received by occupying a part in the church to which they were no longer attached. Expell [Expel] them -Re- [Renewed] newed [need] uproar, during which the chairman interceded, with very little effect, after which Mr. G. Mallinson addressed the meeting personally requesting a hearing for Mr. West.) In resuming his address, he continued, amidst re- [repeated] peated [Peate] interruptions, to draw attention to the insidious character of the Romish [Rooms] faith. He did not object, he said, to his Roman Catholic brethren worshipping in accordance with their own consciences, and using all fair means for the extension of theirown [thrown] religion-but there were questions arose which made it a matter of considerable doubt and difficulty how far they might be permitted to enjoy some privileges in common with his Protestant fellow-subjects. He then quoted a sermon lately preached on this subject, by the Re. T. Bunney, and running rapidly over the general character of Popery, am'd it rep sated interruptions, during which -'God save the Queen was sung with great enthusiasm. Mr. West, after vainly struggling for a fair hearing, sat dewn [den] amidst cheers and disapprobation, by movinggthe [moving] following resolution,- [resolution] That this meeting regards tha [that] 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 strugyies, [struggles] our land was delivered at the glorious Reformation. Mr. J. C. Laycocg, [Laycock] in a few words, seconded the resolu- [resolute- resolution] tion, [ion] which was supported by The Rev. Joun [John] HatcH [Hatch] (St. Paul's), in a very eloquent speech, which was greatly applauded. The Rev. R. Skinner (Independent minister), on rising was received with repeated rounds of applause. He com- [commenced] menced [mended] by expressing his entire sympathy with the sen- [sentiments] timents [sentiments] which had been uttered on the platform that evening. He did not himself entertain any considerable degree of agitation, still less did he feel any fear whatever in reference to what had been called the Papal aggression. (Hear, hear.) He conceived it impossible that that church which they all agreed was the Church of God could fail, or be placed in any jeopardy-as if He, who was the author of the truths they professed-who was the head of their church-would ever, or could ever, desert the truth itself- [itself] or that church, concerning which he had said, On this rock will I build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. (Cheers.) He entertained not only an entire absence of fear; but at the present moment he was full of hope as to the moral results which were likely to flow from these recent movements on the part of Rome. (Hear, hear.) He believed that they had more reason for singing the Te Dewm [Dew] than either the Pope or Cardinal Wiseman-(laughter)-for he believed it would be found that the Pope's bull was a real Irish bull and a blunder. (Luughter [Laughter] and cheers.) It was quite amusing, and he thought somewhat instructive to sec how one party at- [attempted] tempted to throw the blame of all this papal aggression on to the shoulders of another party. Lord John Russell had laid all the blame on the Tractarians, and had said some rather strong things of those ministers who had led their flockg [flock] to the brink of the precipice; but, said the speaker, did it not occur to him that anything which he had done might also have led to these things (Great cheering.) He (Lord John Russell) seemed to forget that he had expressed his willingness to endow Popery in Ireland and to support those things which he now discountenanced and denounced as inummeries injuries] and superstitions. (Hear, and cheers.) The Bishop of Exeter also seemed to be perfectly unconscious that there had been in him any departure from the principles of the Reforma- [Reform- Reformation] tion-he [ion-he -he] seemed to talk as one who had never moved a hair's breadth towards Rome himself-(hear, hear)-but while he said this he must say, and he rejoiced in the fact, that there were still a number of members in the Established Church who entertained as sincere and as great an objection to Tractarianism as to Popery-who looked upon T'racta- [T'acta- sectarianism] rianism [ransom] as Popery in the bud-(hear, hear)-and which only required a little development to become downright popery. (Cheers.) He felt that he was surrounded b clergymen who loved their Bible more even than they loved their Church, and who would rather surrender up every- [everything] thing than the gospel of the blessed God. (Cheers.) He counselled them not to lay all the blame of these things which were going on around them or others but to take a portion of it on themselves, for he believed that they had all been asleep in reference to Popery (hear, hear) and he thought there was a great deal of truth in a caricature which had recently appeared in a well-known facetious journal in which the Pope and his Cardinal were represented as about to put the Cardinal's hat over a certain old gentle- [gentleman] man's head exclaiming at the same time I hope he won't awake. The English people were now, however, awaking to the importance of their duty-we were now assuming the atti- [attic- attitude] tude [tue] of a nation rising and preparing for action, and he thought it was by no means improbable that we should by and bye have no very indistinct apprehension of what it was that had disturbed us. He was, however, rather inclined to think that the manifesto, as it was called, which was put out by Cardinal Wiseman was designed to lull the peo- [pro- people] ple [le] of this country back into slumber. Cardinal Wiseman told tham [than] that there was nothing in the popish movement calculated to trouble the prerogative or the supremacy of the Queen. This was the of Cardinal Wise- [Wiseman] man. He (the Speaker) had read and re-read that docu- [dock- document] ment, [men] and the conclucion [conclusion] he had come to was, that it was ad esuitical [Jesuitical] defence, and all the more so as it affected a straightforwardness, an openness, an honesty, which was not real, but such as they would expect to come trom [from] an open-hearted Englishman addressing himself to the English people, for whom he affected so much sympathy. (Cheers.) is own opinion was that what Cardinal Wiseman said at first was true-that the whole English people were intended to be added again to the Holy Ruman [Roman] Catholic Church. (Cries of hear, hear, and cheers.) The Pope was still hope- [hopeful] ful [full] that they would again fall asleep, and he cautioned them against allowing their opposition to assume a mere ebullition of feeling when the tide of excitement should have passed by, for if they did then Romanism [Remains] would again rear its head-would again set in action its ad- [additional] ditional [additional] agency to work its way in the cities, and towns, and villages of this empire. (Hear, hear, hear.) It was necessary that they should keep their eyes fixed on Romanism-they [Remains-they] must not merely look at it as it manifested itself now, but they must look at what had been the past history of Fopery [Popery] in this country, keeping in mind the great fact that Po ery [very] was unaltcred-that [unaltered-that] it was unalterable. (Cheers.) While he yielded to none in his opposition to Popery yet he would be no party to curtailin [curtain] the civil liberties of their Roman Catholic brethren. Although the petition which he moved for adoption prayed that her Majesty by and with the advice of her Privy Council would take stepsto [steps] rebuke and resist these encroach- [encroachments] ments [rents] of the Papacy, yet if such a course was to be secured by interfering with the rights of our Roman Catholic fellow subjects, he (the speaker) could not present it to them; if it involved the re of those laws passed in favour of the Roman Cvtholics [Catholic] he could not present that memorial to the meeting; but whatever measures her Majesty might think it desirable to omploy [employ] he thought they should look more to moral means rather than to governmental they must look to the dissemination of truth in order to counteract error-they must lean not upon the sword of the magistrate, but upon the sword of the spirit, which was the word of God.. (Cheers He concluded an eloquent ad- [address] dress by moving the adoption of a memorial to her Majesty, which he read, in the following terms - That the following memorial be addressed to her Queen -- The Memorial will be found in our advertising columns. That after the same is signed, the Chairman be requested to transmit the Memorial to Sir George Grey, to be presented to her Majesty. . JosEPH [Joseph] BATLEY, Esq., of Armitage Bridge, in seconding the adoption of the memorial, said he should not have felt at liberty to have seconded the adoption of the memorial if it had not been so worded as to recognize the perfect equality of our Roman Catholic brethren to the same liberties we claimed for ourselves. (Hear, hear.) The memorial recognised the right of every man to address God according to his conscience; but when he had heard it said that this demonstration was not necessary he must say that he thought differently, for he thought that on the present occasion a Protestant demonstration was absolutely neces- [NeWS- necessary] sary. [say] (Hear, hear.) In the first place their atholic [Catholic] fellow-subjects yielded obedience to a foreign Prince; no other sect did this. The Catholics were bound to obey a foreign Prince; we were not so bound. When they found that the Pope of Rome was sending men of his own choosing to preside over ecclesiastical offices we say that is what the law forbids; for this reason, therefore, he would say that if their Catholic fellow-subjects would emancipate themselves from the Roman yoke, and manage their own aftairs [affairs] without foreign interference, they might divide the conntry [country] as they liked, in the same manner as the Wesleyans, for all ecclesiastical purposes, divided the country into circuits, but let us have no foreign dominion over us. (Cheers Another objection he had to this movement was the intolerant spirit of Popery, in proof of which he stated that the heads of the Catholic Uhurch [Church] were bound by oath, according to the statement put forth by Dr. Cumming, and reported in the Times, to denounce all who differed from them as schismatics. Then there was another reason why they should have these demonstrations considerab)e [consider ab)e] numbers, particularly of the English clergy, were travelling to Rome at the top of their speed, and he believed the Pope thought that they were taking the church with them. (Hear, hear.) These demonstrations would show to the Queen, the government, and the Popish nations of Europe, that after all we were resolved to stick to our Protestantism, and that we would never consent to bend our necks to Popery. (Hear, hear.) He would suppose that our Queen were to send over a number of archbishops and bishops to Rome, and set them up ina numher [number] of dioceses, and that they were to pronounce all as schismatics who did not believe in them; he imagined that the Pope would soon send them back again, and on thesome [these] principle he thought we should only be just doing right by sending these emissa- [Miss- emissaries] ries [rise] of the Pope back to Rome where they come from. (Applause. 5 cg . he Rev. JAMES Sracey [Stacey] (New Connexion) in supporting the resolution said he should not have addressed them at so late a period of the evening were it no' that he was the only minister and member of his denominatioa [denomination] present. In the spirit of the first paragraph of the memorial he ex- [expressed] pressed his entire allegiance to the Queen as the supreme head of the government of this realm; in the next place he gathered that. no foreign prince or potentate had a rightful claim to power in this country directly or through his agents, and he therefore at once adopted the memorial as his own. Whatever this attempt at jurisdic- [jurisdiction- jurisdiction] tion [ion] by the Pope might imply there could be no mistake in fact that the dominion of the Pope was intended to apply to the entire and absolute population of this country. (Hear, hear) That was distinctly to be understood it stood out prominently in the Bull of the Pope. Such an attempt might ai the first blush of the thing excitea [excite] smile, for it was ridiculous to suppose that a foreign Prince could control the people of this country; but it was of im- [in- importance] portance, [importance] when we considered the spirit in which it origi- [origin- originated] nated. [Anted] He regarded it as the exposition of the active spirit of Popery-as a project conceived by a man who fancied himself monarch of all he surveyed. There was not merely an ignorance affected of all others, but a spiri- [spirit- spiritual] tual [tal] jurisdiction and affected over the whole of this country. (Hear, hear.) But Cardinal Wiseman and the Pope did not appear in a spiritual character alone. They aimed at the power not only of the church but of the state. He believed that Popery was not so mucha [much] creed as a constitution-not so much aform [form] of Christianity asa mighty confederacy, the object of which was to rise superior to all other powers. (Hear, hear.) This seemed to him the character of the hierarchy. Could the Papacy have secured such a power under Vicars Apostolic it would have served the purposes of the Papacy, but inasmuch as the latter could not give the Pope the supremacy which he desired, therefore he was anxious to establish a hierarchy in this country. In- [Inasmuch] asmuch [as much] as h2 believed the hierarchy claimed more than the rights of worship, and that free exercise of conscience, and that the hierarchy implied more than this, and involved in this implication an attack upon the supreme power in this country, and as it endangered the rights and liberties of our common Protestantism, he was prepared to resist and repel the power of this hierarchy. (Hear, hear.) He cordially agreed with most of the sentiments which had been ex- [expressed] pressed by previous speakers, and concludsd [concluded] an eloquent address by supporeing [supporting] the memorial. Tho Rov. [Rev] N. MANING [MANNING] (incnmbent [incumbent] of Trinity Church), on presenting himself was loudly cheered. He proceeded to move the following resolution - That Petitions to both Houses of Parliament, embodying the substance of the Memorial, be prepared; and that Lord Fitz- [Fitzwilliam] william [William] be requested to preseut [present] the same to the Lords, and W, R. C. Stansfield, Es, to the Commons. He congratulated the meeting on its numerical importance and truly Protestant character, and proceeded to add that this was not the first time he had raised his voice in con- [contrasting] trasting [trusting] Protestantism with Romanism. [Remains] (Hear, hear.) He had been in the habit of calling Popery by the name of Popery, and he knew no other name for it. (Cheers.) He would yield to no man in his love for his church but much as he loved his church he loved freedom more; and if the temporalities of the church were weighed on the onc [on] hand and truth on the other, and the former were found wanting, ha would say annihilation to her parishes, contiscation [confiscation] to her sees, martyrdom to herministers, [her ministers] bnt [bent] fidelity to the truth. (Very great cheering, which lasted for some moments.) He remarked on the common principles which still bound together Protestants, notwithstanding their minor differences, and reminded them that if they would make a firm stand avainst [against] Romanism [Remains] they must be united and stand with a solid front, for from his earliest youth he had been convinced that if there was one thing that weakened Protestantism more than another it was the appearance of division among its various sects of professors. It too often happened that when these meetings had passed away nthing [nothing] was done, but as this was but the beginning of a struggle. he exhorted them not to think that with this meeting the struggles of Protestantism had passed, but to become more united than they had been heretofore, resolved never to give up the right of private judgment, remembering that it was Protestantism that had made our nation what she now is, and which was destined to make her still more a benefactress to the whole world. The reverend gentleman concluded an eloquent address by moving the resolution. Mr. Wricur [recur] MELLOR seconded the resolution. The Vicar having taken the chair, WILLIAM BARKER, Esq., in an eloquent and eulogistic address, moved a vote of thanks to the Constable for his able and impartial conduct in the chair. J. H. RamspotuaM, [Ramsbottom] Esq., in seconding the resolution, said they were about to carry into their families, and into the world, the things they had resolved upon that evening. Let them begin with their children, while they were yet young, remembering that their fathers broke the Roman yoke, and would they see it rivetted [Riveted] again on them or on their children (Cries of never. They would go home to their Bible, and teach their children what Popery had been in our land-they would put into their hands those excellent books of the Tract Society, and show them there the foot-prints of Popery-(cheers)-they would read those things to their children and their families-they would talk to them by their fire-sides, and if they trained their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord they had no fear that the chains of Popery would be manacled on us in this Protestant England of ours. (Applause ) The CHAIRMAN, in returning thanks, said that this was the most extraordiwary [extraordinary] meeting he had ever witnessed among the whole of the public meetings held in Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field during the last thirty years. On the one hand they had the gentlemen of rank and wealth in great numbers, and before him a most patient audience, and daring his experience he had never heard such speaking within the walls of that room. He never felt so proud of the lay gentlemen or of the clergy. He never before heard such kindly sentiments expressed by the church clergy towards their dissenting brethren, and he took those sentiments as the utterances of the heart to be embodied in the life. (Cheers.) For his own part, he never felt so little of a sectarian as he did that night, and he firmly believed that if they had many such meetings they would be the ruin of the Anti-State-Church Society-(laughter)-he did not say they would ruin their dissent, but they would certainly ruin the worst part of it. (Cheers.) For his own part he was ready to give the right hand of fellowship to theia [their] church brethren, and all that he consistently could do for the church with his purse or otherwise he was freely willing todo. [too] (Cheers.) He thought that with such meetings as those throughout the length and breadth of the land there was little fear that Lord John Russeli [Russell] would next session propose to endow the church in Ireland. The chairman concluded by proposing a vote of thanks to Lord John Russell for his letter to the Bishop of Durham, which was seconded by JOHN STARKEY, Esq., and carried by accla- [accra- acclamation] mation. [nation] The second verse of the National Anthem was then sung by the audience standing, after which three cheers were given for the Queen, and the immense company separated a few minutes before eleven o'clock, the proceedings hay- [haying] ing occupied nearly five hours.

In the Court of Exchequer, on Friday, an action was brought against Messrs. Holliday and Co., the extensive lamp manufacturers at Turnbridge Works, Huddersfield, by aman [man] named Longmeid [longed] and wife, under the fol- [following] lowing circumstances. It appears that on the 16th of March, 1849, the wife of the plaintiff purchased one of the defendant's lamps, and while she was the same evening fixing the staple to hang the same from the ceiling of the room, the spirit either overflowed the reservoir or leaked from the lower part of the tube, which it was now alleged was faulty and unsafe, where- [whereby] by an ignition took place, of which accident the results were that the poor woman was very seriously burnt in the left arm and breast, and that so far as the former was concerned she had received a permanent injury by means of of the muscles. After suffering the most excruciating agony for two days, and the symptoms assuming a somewhat dangerous character, the medical man recommended that she should be removed to St. Bartholomew's Hospital, whence, after a sojourn of six weeks, during a portion of which time she was in con- [considerable] siderable [considerable] danger, and in great agony, she was discharged partially cured. For months after her discharge, how- [however] ever, the wife an out-patient of the hos- [hospital] pital, [capital] and up to the present moment was labouring under great personal difficulties and disadvantages in consequence of the contracted muscles which had super- [supervened] vened. [vend] The present action was, therefore, brought for compensation for these sufferings and for the permanent injury, both of which events, it was alleged by the declaration, had accrued from the bad and unsafe make of the lamp in question. Several witnesses were examined, who proved the purchase of the lamp, that the accident had occurred in consequence of the badness of its manufacture, and that the female plaintiff had not only suffered severe pain, but that she was permanently injured in respect of her left hand and arm. The engineer of the defen- [defend- defendant] dant, [dan] who was one of these witnesses, said that at the time the lamp was sold to Mrs. Longmeid [longed] it was per fectly [perfectly] safe and sound, and that it had obtained its present appearance by the blow which it had received when Mrs. Longmeid [longed] dropped it. Mr. Isaac Lug gett, [get] lamp manufacturer, Great Queen-street, Lin- [Lincoln] coln's [Colne's] Inn Fields, stated that the lamp had never been sound. In these lamps it was necessary that there should be a great heat at a certain point of the appa- [papa- apparatus] ratus, [rates] so that the gas, or, as he termed it, the vapour, for it was not gas, should be generated. This vapour was produced froma [from] earbon [carbon] such as turpentine, naphtha, or any other spirit of a volatile character. The tubes hrough [through] which this spirit was to pass ought to be stro.g, [sort.g] very much more so than the tube of this lamp. The proper tube for all gases should be not less than what was termed three-cighth [three-sight] brass tubing. That which had been used for this lamp was only what was known as Birmingham one quarter tubing, and was not at all fitting for the purpose to which it had been applied. This tube had never been brazed so as to enable it to withstand the power of heat which must of necessity press upon it. With a view of informing the jury upon the subject of the relative capabilities of things to with- [withstand] stand heat, he might state that the solder, with which this tube appeared to have been closed, would yield ata [at] temperature of 300 degrees, lead at a temperature of 500, whilst brass, with which all the gas tubes should be brazed, would be impervious in that respect at any heat below 1,861 degrees. The relative extent of this power of imperviousness would be rendered the more familiar to the jury, if he were to state that at a tempe- [temperature] rature [nature] of 212 water would boil. The solder fastening was, therefore, the least capable of resistance. Mr. Watson, on behalf of the defendant, submitted that the cause of action alleged in the declaration had not been proved, for the advertisement simply gave a general, and not an individual warranty, the declaration itself setting forth that the lamps were free from danger, and reasonably fit and proper to be used for that purpose. . Mr. Baron Martin, after some argument, would give the learned counsel for the plaintiffs leave to amend, but thought he had better hear all the objections for the defendant first. ; Mr. Watson then had another point. This was an action by the husband and wife. Now, he submitted that no action could be sustained by the wife for an injury arising out of a contract which had clearly been made by the husband. This was a new point. Mr. Baron Martin said that the point was no doubt one of a very important character. He would reserve both of the points, and give leave to the defendant to move to enter a nonsuit. Mr. Watson then addressed the jury for the defendant. Mr. Baron Martin left it to the jury to say whether they were of opinion that the lamp was defective at the time it had been sold to the plaintiff's wife. If so, then the plaintiffs would be entitled to their verdict. . TheJury [The jury] gave averdict [verdict] for the plaintiffs; damages 20 TOTAL LOSS OF THE EMPEROR OF RUSSIA'S STEAM-YACHT. We regret to announce that the splendid steam-yacht called the Peterhoff, [Peter] which was built in this country a few months since expressly for the Emperor of Russia, and which excited so much admiration while lying in the river, has been entirely lost on her passage out to St. Petersburgh. [Petersburg] The Peterhoff [Peter] was of iron construc- [construct- construction] tion, [ion] built by Mr. Mare, of Blackwall. [Blackwell] She was nearly 400 tons burden, and was fitted with engines of 140 horse power. Her internal arrangements were of the most costly character, and no expense was spared in equipping her for the service of the Emperor. The transmission of the unfortunate yacht to St. Petersburgh [Petersburg] was intrusted [instructed] to an eminent firm on Cornhill, who took every care to supply her with an efficient crew. A master mariner, Mr. James Boniland, [Inland] who had been employed in the Baltic for the last twenty-four years. was appointed to take charge of her, her crew being selected from men who had been trading in that sea. Some five or six weeks ago she took her departure from the Thames, having on board, in addition to her erew, [were] Mr. George Rennie, the engineer, and Mr. Waterman, jun., who designed the yacht, and who, we understand, was charged with its delivery to the Emperor, with Mr. Eschappar [Escape] and one or two other gentlemen. She reached Copenhagen in safety, and having taken on board two ladies attached to the embassy there for con- [conveyance] veyance [conveyance] to Revel, she resumed her trip on the 22nd ult. Having proceeded by Bornholm, and sighting the Archimede, [Arched] one of the Prussian Government steamers, which had gone asiore [ashore] a few days previously on the island, and Gottland, [Portland] she pursued a north-east course up the Baltic, but at times the wind blew a perfect hur- [hour- hurricane] ricane [American] from the northward, which had the effect of driving down the waters in much force from Bothina [Nothing] and the Gulf of Finland. The crew, with great difficulty, suceceded [succeeded] in kecping [keeping] her head to sea, and it is presumed that she was making for the Isle of which is abreast of the entrance of the Gulf of Finland. A light was observed on the night of the 24th, [the] which the master supposed was The steamer proceeded, and at about half-past ten o'clock at night she struck and was half her length up a shallow reef of rocks. The shock is described to have been exceedingly severe. Fortunately the weather had moderated to almost a perfect calm, and but for that merciful interposition every soul on board would have perished. The rocks having penetrated the bottoin [bottom] of the yacht, it was quickly seen she was fast fillmg. [fill mg] The boats were launched with the view of effecting a landing, but the height and position of the rocks entirely prevented them. In the meantime the water gained rapidly in the hull of the wreck, and it was not, long before it was level with the sea. Happily for the lives of those on board, the steamer held her position on the reef, and the crew having formed a kind of pro- [protection] tection [section] from the weather for the ladies in the upper part of the deck, they remained in a painful state of anxiety until the following morning. During the night rockets were fired every half hour, but no assistance came off to them. Daylight brought to them a know- [knowledge] ledge of their real position. The steamer had struck on the island of Oesel, [Isle] the master having unfortunately mistaken its light for that of which was more than thirty miles distant. As soon as they were seen from the land, three boats were despatched to their relief, and the woather [weather] favouring their exertions, the wreck was gained, and the whole of those on board were taken off. --------- .

[Dowager] the suit of Lord Brougham, Mr Wortley, Q.C., moved a Queen's Bench, on Thursday, for a mandamus to the Lords of the Treasury, to issue a warrant for the payment to the executor of the late Queen Dowager, of the arrears of her annuity of 100,000 a-year, due after the 30th September last year, The annuity was made payable on each quarter day. The Queen Dowager having received it for the Sep- [September] tember [member] quarter, died on the 2nd December, before that for the December quarter had became due. It had, therefore, been claimed up to the time of her death, and the Lords of the Treasury answered the demand by saying, they were advised that no money had become due to the Queen Dowager after 30th September.
