At the upper, or north end of the were we pens were staked out in squares, leaving an eT jn the centre, and having from three to four ope cach [each] square, opening upon the centre space, he animals were examined. The poultry were bere es, under the east wall, running along its range 'tent, each being classified and numbered. re ex of stock was much larger than on the previous The en 4 was of a marked superiority in quality. The eee [see] being confined to the immediate district, Man- [Mange] ghow [how] ee Js, Bradford, Halifax, and Wakefield were all chester resented-and took away many of the prizes, well we a will, no doubt, have its influence upon the local a vs and induce them to increased exertions for the re a in box enti [anti] next year. For the pig show there was entered 119, exclusive of the tock, and amongst this large number were some jendid [splendid] animals-perfect in their symmetry, of first uality [quality] of breeding, and in a very high state of feeding. 'eae [ear] were some exceedingly fine useful animals, in addi- [add- addition] fan 10 which were some excellent fancy breeds, which cbtaincd [obtained] general admiration. In passing, we may just orice [price] as Worthy of more especial commendation, a beau- [Beau] ai little black sow, belonging to William Dixon, of Bradford, and a boar, of the small breed, belonging to Mr, Yullinson, [Wilkinson] of Thickhollins-against [Collins-against] which competed, ob- [obtaining] wining the second prize, a splendid little animal, bred by Mr, Holehouse. [Hole house] of Manchester. We were excecdingly [exceedingly] pleased with the collection of poul.- [Paul.- Paul] tre [te the birds were a source of general admiration and an extra entry of three beautiful black swans, from Milns- [Milnsbridge] was deserving of special commendation. During the day we observed on the ground B. N. R. Batty, H. W. Wickham, W. W. Battye, Jos. Brook, George Armitage, T. P. Crosland, Jeremiah Riley, C. S, Floyd. Alexander Hathorn, [Thorn] and Matthew Sykes, Esqrs., [Esquires] in addition to the usual company. We believe that in the course of the day between three and four thousand persons passed the gates; and the sum taken amounted to 62 lis. [is] ld. The very onerous duty of judging devolved upon W. Loft. Esq., Trusthorpe, Lincolnshire, and Mr. Cattle, of Arthinston, [Arthington] near Otley, for the pigs and Mr. Bond, soli- [sol- solicitor] lidtor, [editor] of Leeds, along with Mr. J. W. Nutt, of York, for the poultry. In some few instances dissatisfaction arose with the decisions, but allowing for the difficulties of udg- [dug- judging] ing antmals [animals] of equal claims, we are sure the judges were deserviny [deserving] of thanks for the impartial manner in which they conducted their decisions.

[migration] Among the gentle- [gentlemen] men Present at the dinner we observed B N. R. Batty, ue (President), John Mallinson, Eaq. [Esq] (vice-president), W. Jw Cattle, Esqs.

[honoured] The then rose and said, it devolved upon him to give the toast of the eveni [even] Hear, h pant year it fell to his lot to introduce the sare [are] toast, an t was found with him for saying nothing. On this he should not trouble them with many remarks, ae e had something to say which gave him great plea- [pleasure] ure. [re] (Hear, hear.) Though they a smaller party Pp nent [sent] than on the previous year when they met there ie they re-assembled under the most favourable auspices. (A ear, hear.) Last year the gentlemen who comprised association laboured under ve great disadvantages in having no animals of their own. otwithstandi [notwithstanding] iS they had to te' i istri [Austria] i i rece [race] contend with districts further advanced in this Bradford, Halifax, and the other im- [in- important] towns in their vicinity. The co matics [Matins] was that prizes almost entirely went away from Huddersfield. cote many Fy ie gentlemen determined to use grea' [great] ons and endeavours for th place Huddersfield upon a th the Year; to A p par with the larger societies bad been established in the district. (Hear, hear.) . some of these gentleuien [gentlemen] redeemed their pro- [prose] ee alluded more particularly to Mr. Mallinso [Mallinson] nm. ear, hear.) It must be extremely gratifying to know as e result of these endeavours-and. one of' the judges who was present at the last show would bear him out-that the on shown on that day (Friday), were as good in qua- [quality] ty and condition, as those of their rival competitors in the last show.' (Hear, hear.) And if they went on pro- [progressing] gressing [dressing] in the same day for another year, they would not then be behind any other society in the district, He regretted that the company was not larger, still he was extremely glad to meet them there again and he would assure them that if his services could at any time be of the least value, he should be happy to place those services at the disposal of the Association. tle [te] would give them Success to the Huddersfield Association for Improving the Breeds of Pigs and Poultry. (Hear, and applause. ) Mr FLoyp [Floyd] said it appeared to him to be only proper, and it might be expected that he, as one of the founders of this excellent association, should say a few words on th .t occasion, and he did assure them that any exertions, real or supposed, that he had made in behalf of the society, on its formation or subsequently, had been amply repaid hir-. [hair] To think that this association was only created a year agr, [age] and that day rejoiced in its first anniversary, and the import- [importance] ance [once] it had attained both in the stock shown and in tke [the] interest of the inhabitants of the town and neighbourhood in honouring them at the show. They must all feel gratified at their meeting. There was some doubt on the establish- [establishment] ment [men] of the association, but when they had got at their head such a worthy individual as their president there was little fear of their scheme turning out a failure. The result of that day had crowned their efforts most magnificently, and he thought they had had a splendd [splendid] return for their efforts in promoting the welfare of this Asso- [Ass- Association] ciation. [cation] (Hear, hear.) The dvor [door] receipts had increased, he believed, something like 20 or 25 per cent. on last year. (Hear, hear.) Their march was now onward. If they could not help their Bradford friends sharing with them the prizes they had to bestow, yet he would respectfully tell their Bradford friends that the time was rapidly coming when they must be coutent [content] with occupying their own walk and in filling their own sphere at Bradford. (Hear, hear, hear.) Because an earnest was given ten months ago by their worthy vice-chairman and others that no exertion should be wanted to enable them to suceessfully [successfully] compete with opponents. Ofthat [Of that] promise, to-day they had given their Bradford friends full proof that what they said they meant, and would bate nothing. They had had to compete with some of the best stock that England could produce-such as the stock produced at Leeds, Keighley, Bradford, Halifax, and other places-where the pig fever had been raging to a serious height for a long time they hoped shortly to be in a position to compete with them to a terrific extent, and also with other societies now crga- [crag- organising] nising, [rising] and organised for some time, and therefore they duly considered the propriety of extending their rami- [ram- ramifications] fications [fortifications] beyond the confines of Yorkshire, and throw it open to all England, and the result had proved that they were right and were much better. (Hear, hear, and applause.) If their Lancashire friends had taken away two of the best prizes which might otherwise have been taken away by Keighley or Bradford or the other towns of Yorkshire. (Hear, hear). But he did not be- [begrudge] grudge them that honour, nor were they so ungenesous [generous] as to say they have done wrohg [wrong] in taking their prizes. (Hear, hear.) On the contrary he thought it was a fresh incen- [ince- incentive] tive [tie] to exertion. (Hear, hear). They did not intend to be second to either Bradford or Manchester next year, and if they were only as earnest as Mr. Mallinson had been the next year, instead of walking home with the pleasing smiles and their laurels, they will have to be content to leave in the shades of evening when they could not exhibit the ornaments in the way which they had been so proud of boasting. (Hear, hear, hear.) He believed it would be found that in the pig entres [entries] the stock was not so numerous as the last year, but in point of quality they far exceeded it. He wished he could get some of their poorer neighbours along with them, and not let all the prizes go into the hands of the rich. (Hear, hear.) That was one of the objects for which the Association was established, to excite amongst the working-classes of that widely-manufacturing district an attention to the cultiva- [cultivate- cultivation] tion [ion] of stock. He was gratified to know that so many rizes [prizes] had been won in that district. In the district of Meltham they had taken a few prizes-perhaps, fifth ox sixth prizes but it was creating an interest among them, and they were keeping pigs where they had kept hounds. (Hear, hear.) He did say, that to cottagers who had no means of supporting hounds, it was much more to their credit to keep a good store pig or two than throw their money away on hounds. (Hear, hear.) Let them establish by all means an interest in the labouring classes to compete. Show them that it is better to keep a pig than a dog-better to have a pig to look to than to spend the money away from home. nder [under] such considerations they had previously increased the prizes from three to six. Next year there ought to be a number more. (Hear, hear.) He thought they ought all to come forward and say that, as they had opened to all England, let them favour their own district a little, and say that within the confines of their own district they would give certain prizes to the labouring classes. (Hear, hear.) He had been an unsuc- [nsc- unsuccessful] cessful [useful] competitor. He had brought what he thought was anice [nice] pig, and which he still thought was a nice pig- [pig hear] (hear, hear, and laughter)-but a better pig had got the prize. He did not complain of this. It had only actuated him with a determination to have something very extraordinary shortly. (Hear, hear.) As to the poultry, a considerable increase had taken place, and he was glad to find that the prizes were borne away by their own dis- [district] trict [strict] friends. In this department he was both a successful and an unsuccessful competitor and he had expected to get prizes for those which had lost, but he did not blame the judges. They were not a fit committee if they were to rise in judgment over their judges. If they appointed intelligent men, they would act according to their convic- [convict- conviction] tion. [ion] (Hear, hear,) Judges were fallible like other men, and might therefore err, but in selecting their resent judges they had proved that their selection had done honour to them. He would say go on. They were comparatively in infancy, but had already sur- [Sir- surpassed] passed Bradford in their poultry, and he hoped they would soon do so with their pigs. They must bring their minds to bear upon the matter, and give a little time and trouble in working it out, and they might go on increasing and im- [in- improving] proving until they became A 1 in that district. Though there were few assembled, the report of their proceedings would be taken as a criterion of what is doing on behalf of the Association. Because they were small it must not be said they were not earnest. (Hear, hear.) So long as the worthy president remained by the association the associa- [social- association] tion [ion] would remain by him, and they were certain of suc- [such- success] cess. (Applause.) Mr. CROSLAND expressed his pleasure in meeting that assembly, and moved The successful candidates for pi He fully concurred with Mr. Floyd as to the bene- [been- beneficial] ficial [official] results ensuing from a man having a pig. It culti- [cult- cultivated] vated [dated] the habits of carefulness and thrift which would be the better for all, and therefore he would do all he could to encourage the breeding of pigs. . The Vice-Chairman Mr. MALLINSON, responded in an eloquent speech. & Mr. BENTLEY SHAW, in a neat speech, pro The successful competitors, which was acknowl [acknowledge] by Mr. d. CHAIRMAN proposed the next toast, The unsuc- [nsc- unsuccessful] ccosful [successful] which was cloquontly [eloquently] responded to by Mr. F. R. JoNEs, [Jones] jun., who gave The judges of the pigs. Mr. CaTTLE, [Cattle] in returning thanks, exp' the great satisfaction he had received from the show he had that day witnessed. He had not seen a better show that season, and the difficulty of judging had been considerably in- [increased] creased by the almost equal quality of the animals exhi- [ex hi- exhibited] bited. [bites] They had done their best, they might have erred, but if so, it had been an error of judgment. (Hear, hear.) After repeated calls Mr. Lort [Lot] rose to acknowledge the compliment paid to him, and during the course of his address, remarked ae ene a show in rovinces [provinces] of finer ity. [it] ear, hear. ms r. JOHN CLAY proposed and Mr. Floyd responded to the toast of The Judges of Poultry. Mr. BRook [Brook] could not consent to give up the toast laced in his hands, but it did not require many wo m [in] in se He gave The President, which was drunk with three times three. . The worthy PRESIDENT thanked them most sincerely for the way in which they had drunk his health as president of the Association. He had before spoken of the great bene- [been- benefit] fit this Association might be made, and when he found him- [himself] self associated with so worthy and enthusiastic a band, as was then before him, he should, indeed, be cold-hearted if he refused them his co-operation. (Hear, hear.) The Association was calculated greatly to benefit the working- [working classes] classes, and he hoped still greater efforts would be made on their behalf. (Hear, hear.) The chairman then proposed 'The Committee of the Association. Mr. C. Brook returned thanks, and pro chairman, which was cordiall [cordial] respond to by the worthy gentleman and before sitting down, he gave The strangers who have honoured the show with their presence. -Mr. BaTE [Bates] responded. Mr. RHODES proposed The worthy secretary, and Mr. TURNER returned thanks Mr. BEAUMONT pro The treasurer, which was drunk with honours, and duly acknowledged. The working eet [et] even a a neat speech by CHAIRMAN, and suppo [support] y Mr. 5 te gave The ladies. -Responded to by Mr. H. Brook. . A vote of thanks was then moved to the worthy chairman by Mr. F. R. Jonxs, [Jones] jun., ard [ad] carried with applause.- [applause] After twelve o' ' The vice- [vice] being duly acknowledged, the meeting broke up about LICENSED VICTUALLERS' ASSOCIATION ANNUAL DINNER. The ordinary annual meeting of the members and friends of the Huddersfield Licensed Victuallers' Protective Asso- [Ass- Association] ciation [cation] was held on Thursday last, (being the day of the annual Brewster Seasions), [Sessions] at the house of Mr. Joseph Turne [Turn] r, the Zetland Hotel, in Ramaden-street, [Ramsden-street] Huddersfield a, As is customary the event was celebrated by a dinner, of which upwards of one hundred ladies and gentlemen par- [partook] took, provided in Mr. Turner's best style, which reflected on him great credit and elicited the general approval of the company. The chair was ably filled by the President of the Association, Mr. BaLDERSON, [Baldwin] and the vice-chair. by Mr. Parkin, of Linthwaite; and among the company present were Bentley Shaw, Esq., C. 8. Floyd, Esq. (Solicitor to the Association), Commissioners Crosland, Moore, and Beaumont, Mr. Ogden, (the treasurer), Mr. Vevers, (secretary), and other leading gentlemen connected with the trade. There were also delegates present from the following towns -Mr. Joseph Stinton and Mr. Wadhams, [Wad hams] from Bir- [Sir- Birmingham] mingham; [Birmingham] Mr. Wilson and Mr. Pigott, from Sheffield; and Mr. Beard, from Stockport. The evening's amusement was much enhanced by the strains poured forth by an efficient party of glee singers, at intervals, between the toasts. The cloth having been drawn, and Nox [Not] Nobis [Nibs] Domine [Dominie] having been duly given, The PRESIDENT rose and proposed the Health ot h Majesty, the Queen, in eubmibteng [embank] which he passed 3 high eulogium [Belgium] on her Majesty for the many virtues public and private she had displayed since her elevation to the throne. e toast was enthusiastically responded to and followed by God Save the Queer. The President again rose and proposed in succession Prince Albert Albert Prince of Wales, and the Rest of the Royal Family, and the Army and Nay which by rounds of applause, y, Which were each responded to At the call of the Presid [Preside] sented [scented] himself to submit proceeded to observe that credit for by the company, ent, [end] Commissioner Moore pre- [Perth] the next toast, and in doing so the could Sot give the President r g taste in calling upon himself at that early stage of the proceedings to address them, particularly in support of so important a toast as that of 'Prosperity to the Huddersfield Licensed Victual- [Victuallers] lers' [Lees] Association. During his career in this neighbourhood he had, however, done all in his power to promote the in- [interests] terests [interests] of the town and its inhabitants. (Hear, hear.) But this was the first occasion on which he had had the honour of appearing at their annual meeting, but he sincerely hoped it would not be the last. (Hear, hear.) He had always looked upon the publicans of England as a body of men of great importance-as a class of men heavily taxed- [taxed and] and on whom parliamert [Parliament] had, from time to time, imposed many restrictions, with the avowed object of keeping them in order, but which enactments had, in many cases, been of a most oppressive character when put in practice. (Hear, hear.) He was gratified to find that in addition to their efforts to free themselves from obnoxious and undue supervision, that their association embraced within its sphere of usefulness one of the noblest objects of charity, by its timely provision for the sick and unfortunate mem- [men- members] bers [bees] of their body, and on this latter account he was delighted to find the success which had crowned their efforts. (Cheers.) The bvsiness [business] of a licensed victualler he conceived to be one of the most onerous and responsible character-for, in addition to being heavily taxed, they had to exercise great forbearance and much firmness in keeping under due control those buoyant elements with which they must, from the nature of their business, frequently come in contact. (Hear, hear.) Believing that they succeeded in this object, and believing that their society was instrumental in doing much good among the members of their trade, he felt great peuure [pure] in being permitted to propose 'Prosperity to the Huddersfield Licensed Victuallers' Protection Society. The toast was drank with three times three. The PRESIDENT, in responding to the toast, expressed the deep interest he still felt in the prosperity of the trade, and he was delighted to find from experience that the licensed victuallers, as a body, were men of good moral habits, and trom [from] his own experience in business he did not hesitate to say, that the man who conducted his house on the best moral principles, would, in the majority of cases, ultimately prosper. The morals of society greatly depended upon the class of men who kept public-houses, and there- [therefore] fore it was that, for the advantage of their members and the good of society, he could wish to see every member of their trade conduct his business upon truly moral prin- [pain- principles] ciples. [piles] (Hear, hear.) The Chairman concluded amidst applause. The PRESIDENT, on in rising, said the next toast would be especially interesting to Huddersfield ratepayers, namely, the Huddersfield Improvement Commissioners. (Cheers.) Many of them would be aware that they had recently introduced an Improvement Act, which provided among many other desirable things, for the better sanitary arrangement of the town, and what he had already seen of the superior cleanliness of their streets over the old system convinced him that the Commissioners as a body were doing the town an essential service, and he therefore begged to propose the health of that body, coupled with which hé- [would] would give Commissioners Crosland, Beaumont, and Moore, who had that day honoured them by their presence. (Ap- [Applause] plause. [clause] )-The toast was drank with all the honours. Commissioner CROSLAND, on rising to respond, was re- [received] ceived [received] with rounds of applause. He proceeded, in the first place, to thank the chairman for the handsome compliment paid to himself by the invitation to be present as their guests, and although he had attended at some per- [personal] sonal [tonal] inconvenience, the proceedings of the day had been so interesting to his mind that he was delighted in being present. (Hear, hear.) In the hands of the licensed vic- [victuallers] tuallers [tellers] they were most of them dependent for much of the pleasure, comfort, and, he might add, domestic happiness. which they enjoyed, for it was the province of that class of tradesmen to find a home for those who were from home -(cheers)-so that, when journeying far away, the travel- [traveller] ler [Lee] might feel as little as possible of the loss of his domestic comforts, and he felt certain that in no town in England were those wants better understood or more completely provided for than by the licensed victuallers of Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field. (Cheers.) As most of those present were aware he was one of the first of the Improvement Com- [Commissioners] missioners to carry out the provisions of the Improvement Act. He entered upon the work with a determination to make that bill as efficient as possible, having due regard to a proper exercise of economy-to make it effective in promoting those improvements demanded by the rate- [ratepayers] payers on the old system of things-and he had nb hesita- [hesitate- hesitation] tion [ion] in saying that there was not an inhabitant of Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field but would see, ultimately, the great benefits which would result to the town by the passing of that bill. (Cheers.) Ifthey [If they] could have their town better protected, better watched, more thoroughly cleansed, (hear, hear,) and the interests of that town looked over in a manner superior to what had ever been done before, and that too, as he would venture to assert it ultimately would be, with- [without] out costing the town one farthing more than under the old order of things-if all this could be accomplished, he felt convinced that the ratepayers generally would ultimately appreciate the advantages secured by that bill. Asa member of the Lighting and Watching Committee of the Improvement Commissioners he could bear testimony to the order and well-re ted management of the licensed victuallers of Huddersfield, and he felt called upon to give this testimony, though without wishing it to be supposed for a moment that in so doing he was making an elec- [elect- electioneering] tioneering [engineering] speech, but he did not think that a quieter or a more orderly town was to be found in the West-Riding. (Hear, hear.) He had no doubt that this society, and the trade generally, would continue to flourish in connection with the trade of the district, and, as the corner-stone of their edifice was built in charity he felt confident that their institution would goon and prosper. (Cheers.) It was peculiarly gratifying to his mind to find that they had a fund from which to relieve those in distress and after again expressing the pleasure it afforded him in being a guest at their board, and wishing the society every possible success, the speaker concluded amidst applause. Commissioner BEAUMONT next responded to the toast, expressive of the pleasure it afforded him to be present in company so numerous and respectable, and paid a high eulogium [Belgium] to the hotel-keepers of Huddersfield for the excellent manner in which they conducted their business. He had only that day learned for the first time that this was a charitable institution, and he could only add, in connection with that subject, that he should be most happy to contribute towards their funds. (Cheers.) His friend and their friend Mr. Crosland, had told them he was not making an electioneering speech, and he (the speaker) could assure that gentleman that he had no occasion so to do (hear, hear), for he felt quite certain that the ratepayers would re-elect him without even being asked or solicited on his behalf. (Hear, hear.) In conclusion, he thanked the committee for allowing him the privilege of joining in so numerous, 80 gay, and so respectable a company. Commissioner MOORE, in responding, made one of his brief but telling speeches, which brought down thunders of applause. . The PRESIDENT next proposed, in neat and complimen- [compliment- complimentary] tary [Tar] terms, The Deputations from the kindred towns of Birmingham, Sheffield, and Stockport, who have honoured us with their presence. The toast was responded to by the whole company rising and giving three hearty cheers. Mr. JosepH [Joseph] StInTon, [Stanton] from Birmingham, in acknow- [acne- acknowledging] ledging [lodging] the toast, expressed the pleasure he felt in beng [being] among them, and that pleasure had been much enhanced by the presence of the ladies, whose valuable aid and assistance few understood better than the licensed victuallers, and who might, in truth, in the words of the poet, ex- [exclaim] claim- [claim dear] Dear creatures, we can't do without them, The then alluded to the beneficial results ari [air] out of gatherirgs [gathering] of this character, which resclved [resolved] itse [its] ultimately into a sort of home legislation. He reminded those present that at one time the licensed i victnallers [victuallers] were a et for every young and aspiring member of parliament to shoot at; batetnos [Bateson] they had met and united together, they had acquired for themselves a sort of standing in society of some importance, and this was only just and fair considering the stake they had as a body in the country, and the amount of taxes paid by them. (Hear, hear.) After some further remarks, Mr. Stinton intimated that he should go back to Birmingham with great delight and Jeasure, [Measure] conveying to them a faithful report of the inte- [inter- interesting] Testing he had that day witnessed in our town Mr. WaDHAMs [Wad hams] (the other deputy from Birmingham) and the gentlemen forming the deputation from Sheffield and Stockport also spoke in brief but forcible terms by way of response to the toast. The PRESIDENT again rose, and in eulogistic terms pro- [brother] The health of Bentley Shaw, Esq., which was responded to by three times three, and musical honours. BENTLEY SHAW, Esq., on rising to respond, was greeted with several rounds of applause. He proceeded to observe that he thanked them sincerely for the manner in which they had drank his good health, and although it was not the first time he had risen on occasions of a similar kind, he could assure them that each fresh mark of their regard called forth in his heart more pleasurable feelings than its predecessors. (Cheers.) Still, on the present occasion, he could not but feel somewhat low, inasmuch as he could not dismiss from his mind the recollection of the fact that a highly and deceased relative of his own was to - have presided upon that hear.) He wouldnot, [wouldn't] however, further allude to that ever-to-be-lamented gentle- [gentleman] man further than to say that in his death they all had lost a dear and a sincere friend-in him the Licensed Victuallers' Society of Huddersfield, as well as the kindred society of Sheffield, had lost a firm supporterandatruefriendand patron, and his more intimate friends and connexions a wise and ever faithful counsellor. (Hear, hear.) In the spirit of that ever lamented gentleman he (the speaker) wished again to ex- [express] ress [rest] his unabated attachment to this society, which, so far m [in] increased in intensity every year. He con- [congratulated] gratulated [congratulated] the society on the increase that day made to its members, and it was equally delightful to find that their funds had also Still, there was a large field open, and he urged on those members who had leisure time, and particularly on their president and treasurer, the necessity of further exertions in obtaining additional mem- [men- members] bers, [bees] for he felt quite confident that it only required an effort to be made to enable them to erect alms-houses for any decayed members of the trade in case they should prove unfortunate in their business at the same time inti- [into- intimating] mating, in conclusion, that the offer he had made the former year for this purpose he was still willing to adhere to. (Cheers.) The com Wadhams, [Wad hams] men. Mr. James WicNEy [Wine] then proposed The Ladies,' which was followed by The hon. members of the society, both of which were duly honoured. The PRESIDENT next proposed the Health of Mr. Floyd, the solicitor for the association, for which Mr. Floyd briefly returned thanks. he next. toast was 'The Strangers, which was also duly honoured. Mr. FLoyD [Floyd] next proposed, in eulogistic terms, The health of the president, to which Mr. Balderson briefly responded. is was followed by The Visitors, Vice- [Vice chairman] chairman, new subscribers, 'The treasurer and secretary, Mr. Ogden and Mr. Vevers, the two latter of whom briefly responded. The Press, and a number of other toasts followed, which having been duly honoured were severally responded to, and the company separated at a late hour by drinking success to their next merry meeting, and joining in God Save the Queen. pany [any] were then enlivened by a song from Mr. of Birmingham,- My Ancestors were English- [English] BREWSTER SESSIONS. The general annual licensing meeting was held on Thursday last, at the Guildhall, when there were on the bench-Joseph Armitage (in the chair), B. N. R. Batty, W. W. Battye, Joseph Brook, Joshua Charles- [Charlesworth] worth (Holmfirth), George Armitage, and Joshua Moor- [Moorhouse] house (Holmfirth), Esqrs. [Esquires] Notices had been given for twenty-four applications for new licenses, eight of which were granted, two Withtlrawn, [Withdrawn] and fourteen refused. Of the successful applicants, five were for Huddersfield, one for Almond- [Almondbury] bury, one for Hepworth, and one for Slaithwaite. In renewing the licenses, the bench strongly recom- [com- recommended] mended that all licensed houses should be closed at half-past eleven; after which the following parties in the Huddersfield township were duly cautioned -- Mr. R. Abbs, Mr. George Berry, Mrs. Nancy Booth, Mr. C. Bradley, Mr. John Brierley, (on the representa [present] tion [ion] of Mr. Superintendent Heaton, Brierley was severely reprimanded for allowing prize-fighting in his house,) Mr. Joe Cliff, Mr. James Dyson, Mr. James Hallas, Mr. Joel Holland, Mr. George Scholes, and Mrs. Lydia North. The license of Mr. William Gill, Royal George, was suspended. Amongst the out-townships the following were also cautioned -Mr. James Armitage, Newsome; Messrs. George Brook, Kay, and M. Lodge, Almondbury Mr. John Wagstaff, Hepworth Mr. Jesse Howarth, Honley ; Mrs. Ann Parish, Lepton Elkanah Hoyle, Longwood ; Mr. George Dodson, and Isaac Marsden, Marsden-in- [Huddersfield] Huddersfield Mrs. Hannah Wilson, South Crosland ; Mr. Enoch Marsh, Upper Thong and Mr. Joseph Ibbot- [Abbott- Ibbotson] son, Whitley Upper. The license of Mr. Heury [Henry] Lock- [Lockwood] wood, Kirkburton, was suspended. The sessions were then ordered to be adjourned to Tuesday, the 24th of September next, and the magis- [magic- magistrates] trates [rates] proceeded to examine the applications for new licenses. Mr. C. S. Floyd supported the application of Mr. Jos. Hepworth, Salford, Almondbury, which was opposed by Mr. Clay-granted. Mr. Clough supported, and Mr. Floyd opposed, the application of Mr. George Lodge, Newsome-refused. Mr. Clay supported, and Mr. Floyd opposed, the application of Mr. W. Crossley, Newsome -refused.

[refused] Mr. Barker supported the applica- [applicant- application] tion [ion] of Mr. Owen Moran, Upperhead-row, and was op- [opposed] posed by Mr. Floyd, on behalf of the Licensed Victual- [Victuallers] lers' [Lees] Association-granted. On the application of Mr. W. Hirst, St. Peter's-street, Mr. Clay supported and Mr. Floyd opposed, as befure-granted. [before-granted] Mr. Sykes sup- [supported] ported the application of Mr. Abel Hobson, Folly Hall, which was opposed by Mr. Floyd, and refused. Mr. W. Payne, King-street, was supported by Mr. Barker, and opposed by Mr. Floyd-refused. The application of Mr. John North, Victoria-street, was supported by Mr. Hel- [He- Hellawell] lawell, [well] and opposed by Mr. Floyd-refused. Mr. Floyd sup- [supported] ported the application of Mr. H. Hopkinson, Manchester- [Godmanchester] street, and was unopposed-refused. The application of Mr. John Aspinall, Bell-vue Gardens, Sheepridge, was supported by Mr. Clay, and unopposed-granted. Mr. Freeman (of the firm of Brook, Freeman, and Batlcy) [Batley] supported the application of Mr. Benjamin Beaumont, Market-street, and was opposed by Mr. Floyd-granted. The next application, of Mr. William Padmore, [Admire] for li- [licensing] censing [ensuing] the Railway Refreshment Rooms-four rooms, on the ground-floor, a smoking-room, and waiting-room and two others up-stairs-was supported by Mr. Freeman, and strongly opposed to the extent applied for, by Mr. Floyd.

The Curriers' [Carriers] Company have voted the sum of 100 in aid of the exhibition of 1851. DISTRICT NEWS. HOLMFIRTH. Tue WEATHER.-So unseasonably cold was the atmos- [Amos- atmosphere] phere [there] during Monday night and Tuesday last, that at noon on the latter day snow fell here, succeeded in the afternoon by heavy and repeated hail storms. New Mitt Cuurcu.-The [Cur.-The] Rev. C. B. Rogerson, B.A., curate of St. Martin's, Brighouse, preached two excellent sermons in this place of worship, on the morning and afternoon of Sunday last. The object was to augment the fund for the repairs of the church. Collections were made at the close of each service, and a hand- [handsome] some sum of money was subscribed. Sick CLus.-The [Clubs.-The] Lodge of Ancient Free Gardeners, held at the house of Mr. Uriah Hobson, the Clothiers' Arms Inn, Nether Thong, celebrated another annual day by dining together at the above inn, on Saturday last. From the report read over it would seem that the society is in a prosperous condition and steadily adding to the number of its members. Already seventy-two are enrolled. The club has been formed upon a good basis not the least recommendatory of which is that they have a duly appointed medical practitioner to at- [attend] tend them (by contract) in case of sickness; a plan which has worked admirably for the society, and which all other sick clubs in the neighbourhood not having made similar arrangements would do well to follow without delay. SermMons.-The [Sermons.-The] excellency of the choir acting at the church of St. David, Holme Bridge, has long been known and appreciated in this neighbourhood; and, on Sunday last, two sermons were preached therein, and collections made after each, for the benefit of the choir fund. Mr. Fearne, the worthy incumbent, officiated in the afternoon; owing to the unsettled state of the weather, however, the congregation was thin. The Rev. S. Sunderland, B.A., vicar of Penistone, and rural dean, preached in the evening, and the church was tolerably well filled. A chaste, plain, and telling discourse was deduced from the following text-1 Cor. 6th chap., part of 19th and 20th verses What know ye not that ye are not your own For ye are bought with a price therefore, glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. The anthem was taken from the 22nd chap. of Isaiah, beginning at the 10th verse, and was executed very efficiently by the usual occupants of the orchestra, as were also the other beautiful allotted portions of church psalmody. [Psalm] The amount collected at both services was 9. MAGISTRATES COURT, TOWN-HALL, August 17. BEFORE JOSEPH CHARLESWORTH AND JOSHUA MooR- [Moor- Moorhouse] HOUSE, Esqrs. [Esquires] AssAULT [Assault] Barrery.-One [Barry.-One] case only came up before the bench for adjudication to-day. It was as follows -Emma Langley, of Arrunden, charged her neighbour, Esther Sykes, with wilfully throwing water upon her whilst at the public trough on the previous Wednesday, thus constituting the assault complained of. Esther's appearance in court was that of a perfect virago; whilst the gentle Emma seemed to combine in her placid and interesting countenance all the dove-like and softer attributes of the meekest of her sex. And yet, from the statement of a neighbour present at the hearing of the case, it was pretty plain that during their various fratches [scratches] one had been quite as foul-mouthed as the other in fact it was six of one and half-a-dozen of the other. The parties had long been on bad terms. Miss Sykes having borne several pledges of affec- [affect- affection] tion, [ion, was subjected occasionally to the taunts of Miss Emma. Something of this sort had passed between them on the day in question; and Esther ad- [admitted] mitted [fitted] that, her blood being up, she had emptied a can of water into Miss Langley shoes, and afterwards administered, hydropathically homeopathically three cans full of the game health-restoring element, with a good souse in x her face. The assault being thus admitted, the magi- [magistrates] strates [states] had no option in the matter-they must convict. A fine of 1s. was, therefore, imposed, with 14s. costs, one month's time being allowed in which to pay the amount; or, in default, ten days to the House of Cor- [Correction] rection [section] at Wakefield. At the same time their worships took occasion to tender some very wholesome advice to both parties, on the unseemly language bandied betwixt them, from time to time, exhorting them, earnestly, to be more neighbourly for the future, and, above all things, to have their troublesome lingual members in due subjection-in other words, to keep a civil tongue in their heads. Thus may it prove. LONGWOOD. Drunk anD [and] DisorDERLY.-One [Disorderly.-One] of the victims of the good things of Longwood Thump was brought up on Tuesday last at the Guildhall, on the charge of bemg [beg] drunk and disorderly in a public place called Outlane, on the 12th inst.. The constable had found Daniel Broadbent rather obstreperous, and had therefore taken law upon him. Ordered to pay expenses. GOLCAR. CuarcE [Scarce] or GaMBLINc.-On [Gambling.-On] Saturday last, at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, a charge was brought against John Walker, beer-house keeper, for having or the 15th inst. allowed gambling on the door-stone just without his door. The complainant, John Hirst, said that he was at Golcar on the 15th inst., and hearing a noise near the defendant's house came suddenly upon a group of persons gambling as described. Failing to prove that the landlord was cognisant of the affair, the case was discharged with a caution. LINTHWAITE. A CLOTHES-LINE QuaRREL.-The [Quarrel.-The] equanimity of temper of the inhabitants of a row of houses running up behind Mr. George Crosland's, was unfortunately disturbed on the 15th instant, by the ungallant proceedings of Mr. Henry Stocks and Mr. Samuel Stocks, brewers. It appears these gentlemen have lately taken possession of some brewing premises belonging to Mr. Crosland, to which the road where these clothes have for many years been hung, leads, and claiming a private and exclusive right of passage on this road they considered them- [themselves] selves at perfect liberty to dispose of obstructions in any way they thought proper, and accordingly had cut the clothes-line of Mrs. Jos. Fisher, and precipitated the clean washed linen to the ground. The clothes were re-washed, and Mrs. Fisher, supported by her neighbours, deeming her right equally legitimate, had again suspended them. Their elevation was of short duration, and in a few minutes they were once more down among the mud. In this position the parties came before the Huddersfield magistrates on Tuesday last. Mr. Dransfield, solicitor, was for the plaintiffs, Messrs. Henry and Samuel Stocks, and Mr. J. I. Freeman, soli- [sol- solicitor] citor, [city] for Mrs. Fisher. After hearing the particulars the bench recommended that the matter should be left to Mr. George Crosland for arrangement, which was at once acceded to. DRIvinc [Driving] without Tuesday last, before Jos. Armitage, Esq., at Huddersfield, Francis Harrison was charged by Sykes, the road inspector, with driving two carts, having reins only to one, on Friday, the 16th instant, across Crosland Moor. Fined 1s. and expenses. LINDLEY. GaTHERING [Gathering] BILBERRIES.-A number of persons having been in the habit of visiting the tenant property of Mr. Jos. Taylor, for the purpose of gathering bilberries, a notice was issued by that gentleman, that all trespas- [trespass- trespassers] sers [sees] would be prosecuted according to law. In igno- [ing- ignorance] rance, [France] or in defiance of this caution, Joseph Wood and David Shaw trespassed on the property on Sunday, the llth, [loth] and gathered about a quart of bilberries each. Being duly penitent Wood was fined 6d. with costs, and Shaw discharged on paying expenses. A FREQUENT VistTor.-During [Visitor.-During] the last month or six weeks a personage of the name of Asa Nicholls-gene- [generally] rally under the guardianship and protection of his better half-has figured three or four times before their worships, the Huddersfield magistrates, in the varied character of plaintiff and defendant. Not satis- [sates- satisfied] fied [field] with this amount of notoriety, Asa was last Tuesday agian [again] courteously recognised by the worthy clerk to the magistrates as an old acquaintance. This time he was acting his part as defendant in a charge of damage, brought by Mr. John Rhodes, publican, of Lindley. In July Asa (we presume it was Mrs. Asa) took a cottage house of the complainant, at the rate of 3 a year. During a short residence, Asa took a fancy to remove a coal-house door, a window, and a tolerable quantity of slate roofing; the latter that he might the better indulge in his hobby of pigcon-fancying. [pigeon-fancying] The domi- [dom- domicile] cile [cole] was not equal to Mrs. Asa's ideas, and when they removed the articles specified were not replaced. The magistrates, considering the charge more within the cognisance of the County Court, discharged the case; and we hope neither Asa nor his wife will trouble their worships again-they may come once too often. LOCKWOOD. AssaULT [Assault] AND DaMaGE.-The [Damage.-The] festivities and feastings [Hastings] of this neighbourhood during the past week or two have been accompanied with those usual scenes of real life which give a higher colouring to the com- [common] mon routine of enjoyment. It would be perhaps diffi- [diff- difficult] cult to divine whether Mr. Henry Brown, of the Red Lion, had made a stronger brewing for the event, or the irritability of temper possessed by some of his cus- [us- customers] tomers [times] was more keen and active than usual. Whatever might be the cause, certain it is that Mr. Brown, on the 2nd instant, found his bara [bar] scene of most unenviable confusion and uproar, during which Godfrey Berry and Joshua Wimpenny committed certain acts and offences, which rendered their appearance at the Guildhall, Hud- [HUD- Hand] and waiting-room on the second storey. Mr. Barker dersfield, [Huddersfield] on Saturday last, as plaintiff and defendant, a Armitage b Whitlow matter of course. Mr. Berry figured as prosccutor, [prosecutor] and charged his less fortunate rival-first, with damag- [damage- damaging] ing a shirt front, a waistcoat, and a coat; secondly, with inflicting a certain blow, on his left eye, by which his physiognomy was disagreeably disfigured. Each party had a good tale, and called four or five witnesses to depose to its accuracy. From the contradictory pros and cons of this affray, we gathered that Mr. Berry had gone into the Red Lion on the 2nd instant, and was im- [in- immediately] mediately recognised by Wimpenny, who at once began to chafe him about a sporting excursion of the previous 12th of August. It was rather a ticklish sub- [subject] ject, [jet] and Berry winced under the raillery, and began to retort by calling Wimpenny a rogue and athief. [thief] This was too much even for the cool blood of Wimpenny, and he rose to inflict summary punishment upon his calumniator. In doing so he seized the complainant by the breast, disfigured the beautiful front, tore the waist- [waistcoat] coat, and left the coat sans half a sleeve. Others then interfered, and something like quietness was obtained. This was the offence. The damage done was estimated at 13s., which was ordered to be paid, with expenses, and the assault was discharged, the circumstances being con- [considered] sidered [resided] by the bench of a very aggravating nature. KIRKHEATON. INDEPENDENT CHaPEL.-A [Chapel.-A] public examination of the day scholars in connexion with the above place of wor- [or- worship] ship took place on Monday last, when the Rev. W. J. Unwin, M.A., principal of the Normal School, London, and the Rev. J. Cummins, minister of the place, took part in the examination, and at the close addressed the children on the evil practice of swearing which is so prevalent. After the examination upwards of one hundred sat down to tea. At the conclusion of the repast a public meeting was held-Mr. Boothroyd in the chair. The meeting was addressed by the following gentlemen, who take great interest in the cause of edu- [ed- education] cation at Kirkheaton-Rev. W. J. Unwin, M.A., principal of the Normal School, London; Rev. J. Cummins, minister of the place; and Messrs. Edwards, Byram, Denham, Watkinson, and Hirst; and no doubt a good impression was made upon the minds of the parents who were present. The meeting separated at an early hour, all apparently gratified with the proccedings [proceedings] of the day. Poor-RatEs.-The [Poor-Rates.-The] overseers of the poor for the Kirk- [Kirkheaton] heaton [Heaton] parish, appeared at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, last Saturday, summonsing a number of persons for non-payment of poor-rates. Orders were made in each case for payment. KIRKBURTON. a Famity.-A [Family.-A] charge of a very painful nature was laid by the overseer of Kirkburton before the magistrates at Huddersfield, on Saturday last. It appeared that the defendant, George Ridgwick, [Roderick] a great rough idle-looking fellow, had for a long-time past kept his family in the midst of disgusting filth, and on the verge of starvation. About two years ago his wife died, leaving five children dependant on their father for support. On several occasions he had had work, but was so idle and lazy that his employers could make nothing of him, and were compelled to order his discharge. He was represented as occupying a confined cellar-dwelling, with scarcely any furniture, and in a most filthy condition. There was a hole in the centre of the floor, filled with refuse matter and night-soil, the stench from which was intolerable. The magistrates committed Ridgwick [Roderick] to Wakefield for fourteen days. Drivine [Divine] witsout [without] REtNs.-We [Rents.-We] are surprised that the frequency with which charges of this nature are pre- [preferred] ferred [erred] does not act as a caution against persons being so negligent. On every court day in Huddersfield, drivers are fined for travelling without reins, but still the evil seems undiminished. On Tuesday last, Sykes, the active road mspector, [aspect] appeared before the Huddersfield ma- [magistrates] gistrates, [magistrates] charging John Jagger with riding in his cart without reins, on the highway at Kirkburton. Fined 10s. and expenses. THURSTONLAND. CHaRrGcE [Charges] oF AssauLt.-On [Assault.-On] Tuesday last, at the Guild- [Guildhall] hall, Huddersfield, a charge of Assault. was preferred by Henry Haigh against Robert Rogers, We gathered from the evidence given that the plaintiff is the pos- [post- possessor] sessor [lessor] of a horse and cow, both of which sometimes transgress the distinction of mine and thine, and were more frequently found in the corn-field of Mr. Rogers than was in any way agreeable. Owing to this circum- [circus- circumstance] stance, the defendant had ordered the pinder [Pinder] to impound complainant's horse on the 16th inst. Whilst doing so, with the assistance of Rogers, the alleged offence took place, during a scuffle between the defendant and Haigh, in which the latter has been rather too roughly used. Mr. Dransfield, solicitor, defended. Rogers was HONLEY. Harvest commenced a week ago in this neighbour. hood, yet little progress has been made on account of the unsettled state of the weather. Should it improve, in the course of a few days, all will be well; as the crops look healthy,-with one or two exceptions,-bué [exceptions,-be] we think there is not quite as much in breadth as usual, The grain has suffered a little from the bounteous showers in the early part of the week, particularly on Monday. The potato crops look healthy, although they have suffered a litile [little] from the strong winds, and we have seen two or three samples of diseased ones, but we trust it will not be so bad as in the last four years. Poor-Rates.-On Saturday last, before the presiding magistrates, at the Guildhall, Hudersfield, [Huddersfield] the overseer of the poor at Honley, appeared to summons sev [se] parishioners for non paymenit [payment] of the poor-rate. Ordered to be paid. HALIFAX. BREWSTER SESSIONS, BEFORE THE West RIDING Macus- [Marcus- Magistrates] TRATES.-The [RATES.-The .-The] innkeepers residing in the division of West Morley, appeared for a renewal of their licenses on 'Tuesday last, to the number of two hundred, which, after summary cautions to those of tl em who have not conducted their houses as orderly as the law requires, were granted. Four applications for new licenses were made, three of whieh [which] were refused the fourth case was that of the Gritfin [Griffin] Inn, at Barkisland, [Bark island] the license from which house was removed some time ago on account of the bad conduct of the then tenant, Holroyde. The widow of this person (who was accidentally killed on the railway) now sought for the license to be granted back, and promising to keep it in a proper and lawful manner the bench consented. BREWSTER SESSIONS FOR THE BorouGH.-On [Borough.-On] Wednes- [Wednesday- Wednesday] day, the license day for innkeepers, subject to the con trol [trial] of the borough magistrates, appeared before their worships, to the number of eighty; four of the county magistrates were present on the occasion, and this being the first time these sessions have been held under the borough commission, some little interest was excited. Fourteen convictions had taken place during the year, the particulars of each offence being read over, the guilty parties were called up, and received admonition and warn- [warning] ing from the Worshipful the Mayor, who presided.
