CxuRCH [Church] Missionary ANNIVERSARIES -The anniversary services in connexion with this evciety [society] will commence on Sunday (to morrow) when sermons will be preached morn- [morning] ing and evening at the Parish Church and at St. Paul's, by our respacted [respected] Vicar, the Rev. W. Sinclair, M. A., incum- [income- incumbent] bent of St. George's, Leeds, and the Rev. R. Collins, M. A., vicar of Kirkburton. On Monday evening the anniversary meeting will be held in the Philosophical Hall, under tke [the] presidency of the Vicar of Huddersfield, when several friends of the society will address the meeting, and detail the measure of success which has attended its operations. ANNUAL OPENING OF SLAITHWAITE BaTus.-The [Bates.-The] arniial [annual] tea gathering of the subscribers to these detighteil [delighted] baths took place on Wednesday last, when an excellent spread was secured by the spirited proprietor for his numerous guests. Téa [Tea] having been sséd, [SSE] the company moved off in amusing amé [am] agreeable groups to enjoy the water- [waterside] side breeze, and to inspect the judicious alterations and improvéments [improvements] 'iiade [aide] since the close of the last season, and which reflect great credit on the proprietor. Moore's excellent quadrille band was in attendance, and played some appropriate airs, to which the company, young and old, tripped it merrily, here and there, on the light fantastic toe. As the shades of evening gradually crept on the pleasure-seekers, the company withdrew to the inner apartments, where the rules of these baths were read by Mr. Roberts, surgeon, after which Mr. William Moore, of Huddersfield, made some pertment [department] remarks on the na- [nature] ture, [true] utility, and pleasure of such assemblies, the more expecially [especially] as by means of the railway parties could leave Huddersfield, avail themselves of these baths, and return to business in an hour and a-half. At the conclusion of Mr. Moore's remarks the band struck up a lively tune dancing commenced with spirit, and the lively hours having fleeted by most treacherously, the National Anthem was by the whole company, and each returned to his home with what appetite he Lockwoop [Lockwood] MEcHANICcS' [Mechanics] IMPROVEMENT SOcIETY.-This [Society.-This] institution, which was formed at the commencement of the resent year, held a friendly festival at their Rooms, in Bath-Terrace, on Whit-Tuesday, when the members were joined in a social cup of tea by some friends interested in the siccess [success] of the institution, the latter of whom gave each a snall [small] donation in aid of its funds at the conclusion of the eening's [evening's] enjoyments. SocuTH [South] CROSLAND.-INDEPENDENT ORDER OF ODD- [ODDFELLOWS] FELLOWS, No. 499 (M.U.)-The members of this lodge held their nineteenth anniversary on Whit-Monday, at the house of Mr. Crispin Borke, [Broke] the Fleece Inn, when they k of a substantial dinner, which did honour to the ost [out] and hostess. After the cloth had been drawn the chair was taken by P. G. James Whiteley. The annual report of the state of the lodge was read by P. G. John Radclifi, [Radcliffe] which gave great satisfaction to the members pre- [pres] s nt, nt] inasmuch as it showed that the lodge is progressing, and in a very satisfactory state as to the financial affairs. At the close of the business the doors were thrown open to admit their wives and sweethearts, when singing and dancing were kept up to a late hour. The evening's enter- [entertainments] tainments [entertainments] gave general satisfaction, and were greatly assisted by the Golear [Golcar] brass and quadrille band, in their splendid uniform, who had been expressly engaged for the occasion. 2 SHaRP [Sharp] Practice.-A somewhat subtle question in legal circles came on for discussion before the Huddersfield magistrates, on Tuesday, arising out of a bastardy case. Mr. Mitchell, of Halifax, sppeared [appeared] on behalf of the young man, opposing an order in rdy [dry] sought to be obtained against him, upon which Mr. Clough, of this town, inti- [into- intimated] mated that the plaintiff had that morning only consulted him, and, in total ignorance of the requirements of the law, had come without the necessary corroborative testimony. Mr. Mitchell stated that under the circumstances he would consent to an adjournment, on condition that the plaintiff paid the expenses of five witnesses for the defence, who had come from beyond Ripponden,-at the same time waiving any claim for professional attendance. Mr. Clough demurred to this proposition, and claimed to have the case struck out of the list, but this latter course their worships declined to fall in with, and sugge [sugar] that a reasonable sum be allowed to the defendant's witnesses, as the condi- [condition- condition] tion [ion] of adjournment. After some further altercation be- [between] tween the legal gentlemen, Mr. Laycock interposed, at the request of their worships, and remarked that the witnesses ought to have 2s. 6d. each, but suggested that the case be adjourned on the five receiving 23. each. In this sugges- [suggest- suggestion] tion [ion] Mr. Mitchell acquiesced, as did also Mr. Clough, but the latter pressed it as a condition that he should receive the names of the five witnesses for the defence before he paid over the money. Mr. Mitchell objected to this course, as most unfair, inasmuch as it would enable the plaintiff to ascertain the line of defence he intended to pursue, and, thus, when the case came on for hearing the plaintiff would immeasurable advantages. Mr Chg Om , argued with considerable ingenuity in favour of appli- [apply- application] cation, and cited the practice of the Assize and Superior Courts in similar cases, upon which Mr. Michell intinates [intimates] that if they were to be guid [Guide] y the practice p a taxing canter in superior courts he should claim the full amount to which he was entitled for each witness, instead of the reduced sum named. The bench ultimately decided that the application made by Mr. Clough was a proper one, and that the names must be given. The excitement in- [incident] cident [cent] to the discussion of this nice point having cooled down a little Mr. Mitchell, in the most handsome manner, intimated that inasmuch as he did not wish to put the unfortunate defendant to any expense, but merely to offer a legitimate opposition to an order being made on his client, he would withdraw any claim on behalf of his wit- [witnesses] nesses [senses] or himself, and consent to an unconditional adjourn- [adjournment] ment [men] for a fortnight. The Bench complimented Mr. Mitchell on the honourable course he had pursued, and Mr. Clough expressed his thanks on behalf of his client for the forbearance evinced by Mr. Mitchell in the case. Thus for the present the matter stands. . A SwatLow [Swallow] In DirFicutties.-A [Difficulties.-A singular-locking fellow, named Edzard [Edward] Swallor, [Swallow] of Folly Hall, whose perso [person] appearance resembled the most caricatures of the heroes of the. Parisian barricades, and whose voice rivalled that of Stentor [Stent] of old, was placed before the ma- [magistrates] gistrates, [magistrates] at the Guildhall, on Tuesday, charged with having assaulted Joseph Crawshaw, the watchman on the premises of Mr. Kaye, at Folly Hall Mills. It would ap pear that Edward keeps-or rather galloway, [Galloway] which sometimes finds itself in pastures not duly rented for its use and pasturage by its master. On the morning of the assault the oway [way] was discovered about 5 p.m. in the tenter field of Mr. Kaye, by Crawshaw, who, in accordance with orders previously received, resolved that the animal should there remain until the foreman came on the works. Soon after five Swallow's lad came for the galloway, [Galloway] but was not permitted t6 take the animal away. The lad informed the father of the dilemma in which he was placed, and Swallow was soon on the spot, resolved on liberating his galloway [Galloway] come what might. Craw- [Crawshaw] shaw [Shaw] placed himself in the gateway to revent [recent] the anima 'from passing, upon which Ned quickly clicked watcher on one side, and took his galloway [Galloway] away in triumph. This little encounter constituted the assault in question. Ned stoutly denied the b., soft aes [as] se much as the charge was borne out Dy es, 10s. and expenses was inflicted. As if to verify the truth of the adage, that misfortunes come not single-handed, Edward was also charged by the Lockwood constable ith [it] Baring cart om the turnpike without his namc [name] being written on the same. e case was clearly made wut, [wit] and Ned wisely admitted the offence, but as the was not pressed, and inasmuch as it was stated that the lefondant [defendant] had only recently purchased the cart, the case was dismissed on Ned paying the expenses.

E HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, J. I. Freeman for the statement of account produced by . ufter [after] much trouble returned into court with a like fruitless ASSAULTING THE LoNGwoop [Longwood] CoNsTABLE.-A [Constable.-A] labouri [labour] man, named Weliam [William] was on Tuesday last plicel [police] before the sitting magistrates, charged with having saulted [saluted] Taylor, eonstable.-The [constable.-The] defendant acknowledged the offence, expressed his sorrow for what he hed [he] done-the constable was in the dis- [discharge] charge of his duty as brave as a lion,-and all things being made agreeable, the summons was dismizsed [dismissed] on the defen- [defend- defendant] dant [dan] paying the expenses, INFORMATIONS AGAINST CUMBERWORTH PUBLICANS. - At the Guildhall, en Tuesday, before J. Armitage, W. W. Battye, and B. N. R, Batty, Esqrs., [Esquires] a publican, named Jokn [John] Peace, was sttmmoned [summoned] by Mr. Heaton, county super- [superintendent] intendent, [intended] with having persons drinking in his house on the Sunday afternoon. The defendant said his house was situated in the Wapentake [Vantage] of Staincross, [Stain cross] and therefore in the Barnsley district, and the case ought, therefore, to have been heard at Barnsley. The Beifch, [Beach] on enquiry, found that this latter statement was correct but the infor- [inform- information] mation [nation] having been laid at Huddersfield; their worships, without wishing to show any discourtesy to the magistrates, decided on going into the case. It a peared, [pared] from the statement of Mr. Heaton, that the defendant's house is situated on tho division ef the Stalncross [staleness] and Agbrigg Wapentakes, [Sweepstakes] and hence the mistake had been made. It appeared that there were ten persons drinking in the house at a quarter to four o'clock on the Sunday, some of whom, the officer added, were in liquor, and in their working-day clothes. The defentlant [defendant] said that he was from home at the time, seeing hfs [his] family (the mother of whom died in child-bed, firet [fire] having given birth to twins, a few weeks since). The Bench, under the circumstances, inflicted the mitigated fine of 10s. and Mr. Heaton next preferred an information against Mr. Seth Sentor, [Senior] of the Sovereign Inn, Cumberworth Half, for ving [vine] his house open, and company therein, on the after- [afternoon] noon ef Sunday, the 12th instant, during the hours of divine service. The defendant could not deny the charge, and a fine of 1 and expenses was inflicted. A SHEPLEY Brer-Hovsr [Beer-Hover] Keeper Frxep.-On [Frogs.-On] Tuesday last, at the Huddersfield Guildhall, a beer-house keeper from Shepley, named Samuel Bower, was charged, on the information of Superintendent Heaton, with having com- [company] pany [any] drinking in his house on the evening of the 1th [the] inst., after ten at night. Mr. Heaton stated that on the Saturday night in question he called at thé [the] defendant's house, at a quarter to eleven, when he found ale on two tables, and eight persons in the house, some of whom were gambling. He also deposed that the township in question contained less than 2,500 inhabitents, [inhabitants] and produced a copy of a conviction, certified by the Clerk of the Peace, ina similar case bzfore [before] 1 at night, wherein the population was less than 2,50 Im [In] cross-examination by Mr. J. I. Free- [Freeman] man, Mr. Heaton stated that at the time in question the defendant did not allege that the persons in the house had been invited by the landlord to celebrate his recent nup- [up- nuptials] tials, [tails] but added that the defendant begged of him to look over it, as if he was fined it would be the ruin of him, as he was recently married. A former conviction of 2 and 15s. 6d. expenses was proved, upon which the Bench inti- [into- intimated] mated that inasmuch as a former conviction had recently taken place, and as gambling was going on in the house when the officer called, the full penalty of 5, including exp-nses, [exp-ness] would, in this instance, be enforced. SQUABBLES AMONG THE Fair SEx.-On [Six.-On] Tuesday last, at the Guildhall, a married female, named Jane Taylor, summoned Mrs. Hannah Cocking on a charge of assault, under the following circumstances -It appeared that on the previous Thursday Mrs. Taylor, like a careful mother, some opium pills, but like a thoughtless wife left them in an improper part, of the house, and one of the chil- [child- children] dren, [den] very naturally, tasted the sample, and approving the taste, as we presume, swallowed the whole of them. The mother, on finding out the youngster's trick, was naturally alarmed for the safety of her child, and went to defendant's house where her husband was enjoying a bit o' bacco [back] with a mate ofhis,) [of his] to leave her infant in charge of the father while she went to the druggist's for an opiate. On her re- [return] turn she was going up stairs to the room where her hus [his] band and child were, when Mrs. Cockin after her, and ordered the plaintiff down again. ith [it] this réquest [request] she refused to comply, upon which the defendant ran up stairs, caught hold on her, having a knife in her hand at the time, with which she threatened to stab the complain- [complainant] ant to the heart, at the same time tearing her clothes and striking her. The parties in the lodger's room, however, interposed, and no further mischief was done. Mr. J. I. Freeman, for the defence, said that he did not deny that an assault had been committed,- [committed] but asserted that the com- [complainant] plainant [plain ant] had, a short time before, accused a relative of his client's (a little girl) with stealing a piece of soap,-that she naturally felt injignant [indignant] in consequence, and ordered the complainant down stairs, but, inasmuch as she refused to obey her request, she rushed up with a knife in her hand, with which she was pairing potatoes wheh [when] complainant came in, The Bench said that they considered the defend- [defendant] ant a most dangerous and violent woman, whose passion in this instance had evidently got the better of her reason, and fined her in a penalty of 1, and 10s. 6d. expenses. CavtTion [Caution] 0] INNKEEPERS.-At the Guildhall, on Tues- [Tuesday] day, the Constable of Kirkburton requested the guidance of the Bench on the following point -It appeared that on the occasion of the various feasts in this neighbourhood, the publicans have been in the habit of keeping open their houses beyond the houts [South] allowed by law, under the impres- [impress- impression] sion that they were not liable to be fined for so doing. The constable, therefore, requested the opinion of their worships in the matter. B. N k Batty, -, said the Bench were decidedly of opinion that p iblicans, [publicans] under such cireumstan- [circumstance- circumstances] ces, [ce] had no right so to do, and that in case they continued the practice it would be at their own risk in future. Sportinc [Sporting] CuaRracters [Characters] aT Lonewoop.-On [Lockwood.-On] Tuesday last, before the Huddersfield magistrates, John Hirst, Cullingorth [Calling] Shaw, William Atkinson, Joseph Hoyle, and John Brook, were charged with having been gmbling [gambling] on the high road from Huddersfield, on the 13th inst. Mr. Heaton stated that on the Monday in question Tavlor, [Taylor] the Longwood constable, came to him, and informed hin [in] that a foot-race was about to take place between iw agile youths in that village. Mr. Heaton returned with the constable, but found that the race was over, but that an extensive system of gambling was being carried on asa sort of finale to the previous sport. Taylor, thé [the] constable, identified each of the defendants as being of the gambling party, and intimated that they had roused his fury in resisting him in his attempts to put down the race. A fine of 20s. and expenses was inflicted in each case, B. N. R. Batty, Esq., intimating it as the determination of the Bench to put down gambling, racing, and cock fighting in this district, by in future inflicting the full penalty allowed bylaw. cif [if] an Na est wt Leavinc [Leaving] Work IN AN UnFinisHep [Unfinished] StaTE.- [State.- State] A man named Daniel Morton, a weaver, was, on Tuesday, at the Huddersfield Guildhall, charged by Mr. Wm. Balmforth, of Elland, with having received from the latter certain articles to work up into cloth, and not having done so. The complainant stated that on the 6th of October the defendant applied to him for work, and received out a quantity of warp and weft, which he promised to bring in, finished, in a week from that day, the goods being at the time wanted to complete an order. The work was only in part brought, and although repeated notice had been given to the defendant to bring in the remainder, he had failed -in doing so, and had since been working for other parties. It transpired that the parties had agreed on the amount of remuneration plaintiff should receive, but the defendant 'very foolishly refused to pay the law expenses, a course he still adhered to, though warned by the Bench that in case he did not adopt that course they would be compelled to commit him. The defendant still doggedly declined to adopt the hint thrown out by their worships, and added that some of the work was of so bad a q ity [it] that it had to be taken out of the room, as it could not be worked. This statement the plaintiff denied, and as the defendant refused to make the necessary reparation he was sent to Wakefield House of Correction fora month. . RaTHER [Rather] CoMPLEX [Complex] BOOK-KEEPING.-Irishmen were never so distinguished in facts and figures as in oratorical display, 'and a case which came before the sitting magistrates on Tuesday, leaves us no hope to believe that an improvement 'has taken place in this respect.

As will be seen by the subjoined inscription, the presenta- [present- presentation] tion [ion] was te have taken place at the anniia [Tannin festival of the Ancient Committee, in December last but owing to a family bereavement, it was necessarily postponed. Mn Croshand, [Crosland] therefore, kindly selected his own da and in the mest [meat] hospitable manner invited a large of his pemnoual [penal] friends to a most sumptuous dinner, at Cros- [Cross- Crosland] land Lodge, on the afternoon of yesterday. About thirty gentlemen sat down to dinner. George Crosland, Esq., preset, the vice-chair being ably occupied by his son, A - Crosland, Esq. Amongst other gentlemen present were Messrs. Thos. Kilner, Joseph Kaye, (of this town) Henry Brett (of London), James Wm. Cousins (of Bristol), Bates, Sidney Morehouse, and Thomas Dyson, (of Holm- [Holmfirth] firth.) Several interesting toasts were drunk, amongst which was naturally the chief and most interesting, health of George Crosland, Esq. The duty devolved upon Mr. Floyd, as the principal officer of the Ancient Committee next to the worthy host, to make the formal presentation of the portrait, which he did in an appropriate speech. Mr. Crosland returned thanks in a most feeling manner. Other speeches were delivered duting [during] the evening, which we need scarcely add was spent most harmoniously. The following is a copy of the inscription - 'This faithful portrait of George Crosland, Esq., of Crosland Lodge, was presented to him by the members of the Ancient Committee of the Cherry Tree, at their annual festival, on the 28th of December, 1849, as a memento of their high regard for his private worth, and for his great usefulness and encouraging example to their ancient and honourable society. , - oo THE ALLEGED ASSAULT aT ALMONDBURY. - BROKE THE WINDWOW [WINDOW] -At the Guildhall, on Tuesday, before J. Armitage and W. W. Battye, Esqs., [Esq] a little emaciated old man, named George Beaumont, a weaver, residing at Almondbury, was summoned by a powerful young fellow, named William Lodge, the son of a farmer in the same village, Mr. J. I. Freeman appeared for the defendant. This case had been put off from week to week, in consequence of the continued illness of the defendant, who, even now, seemed quite unfit to appearin [appear] court. From a variety of conflicting testimony we glean that on the 2nd of 'April, a cow which Lodge was driving chased a bantam fowl belonging to Beaumont's son, and the hen took ata [at] pane of glass and broke it. Lodge was requested to pay for the square, but refused, and on the 22nd of April, Beau- [Beaumont] mont's [most's] son accosted Lodge as he was passing, and asked him to assign a reason why he would not pay for the repair of the window which his cow had been the cause of being broken. Lodge then made use of some violent language, and ultimately got from his horse and struck the defend- [defendant] ant's eldest son; a younger brother then ran out and took patt [part] in the melee, and ultimately the old man sallied forth with a coal-rake in his hand, with which he struck Lodge on the arm. The Bench said they considered both parties were to blame, and should therefore dismiss the summons. STEALING De Larnes [Lanes] From A DRAPER's SHOP IN NEW- [New street] STREET -On Wednesday evening, as Mr. Cocking, the architect, was leoking [looking] out of his office window, in New- [New street] street, about half-past seven o'clock, he saw a man move away in a stealthy manner from the shop-door of Mr. J. W. Walker, draper, with a packet of de-laines [de-lines] in his arms. He watched the man down the steps into Mr. Ludlam Ramsden's cellar, and then crossed over to Mr. Walker, and having informed the latter of what had passed, they went in search of the thief, and found him in the cellar- [cellar hole] hole in question. They then adopted the wise precaution, on finding their customer in safe custody, of locking the door and sending for the police. Superintendent Thomas was quickly on the spot, and having routed the thief out from among some barrels, and found the piece of de-laine [de-lane] in the cellar-hole, partially concealed, walked him and his booty off to the lock-up. On Thursday morning the pri [pro] soner, [sooner] whose name is Henry Brook, was placed in the dock, before J. Starkey, Esq., on a charge of stealing the piece of de-laine [de-lane] in question, which is 32 yards in length, and valued at 30s. .The facts above recorded were deposed to, Mr. Walker swearing to the goods as his property, which he recognised by his private mark, and the prisoner having no defence to make, was committed to the next sessions. We understand that the prisoner had only left Almondbury Workhouse the previous morning, taking with him a to- [tobacco] baceo [base] box and some money belonging to another inmate in the house. Since he has been in the Huddersfield lock-up he has made some faint attempts to hang himself, but they were so badly managed that hitherto he has not succeeded, and by this time, we presume, he will be in the safé [safe] custody of Mr. Shepherd, at Wakefield, who will no doubt caretully [carefully] preserve him from such an untimely end. THE PoLiceMaAN [Policeman] OvTDONE.- [Often.- Often] Night-watch Marsden brought up John Thirkin [Thinking] before the magistrates, on Satur- [Star- Saturday] day last, at the Huddersfield Guildhall, and charged him with being drunk and disorderly, in Manchester-street, on the morning of thé [the] 12th instant. After the policeman had stated his complaint, their worships asked Thirkin [Thinking] if he had got any thing to say in the matter. The defendant quickly said- Yes, Ihave. [Have] The policeman charged me with being drunk on the 12th of May; now, my summons says I was drunk on the 13th. [the. He then produced the summons, which certified as stated by defendarit, [defendant] and the Bench conse [cone] uently [until] told Marsden that the mistake was a fatal one, and that the case must therefore be dismissed in consequence. The defendant left the court much amused with the success which had attended his technical objection. CavTion [Caution] To CaRTERS.-James [Carter.-James] Bolland, from Adwalton, [Dalton] near Leeds, was summoned, by Superintendent Thomas, before the magistrates, on Saturday last, at the Guildhall, charged with leaving his horse and cart alone in Cross Church-street, on the fair day. The nian [nan] said he had sold a horse, and had gone into a public-house to receive the money, and had left the horse and cart in the care of a little boy. The boy, however, had left his charge, and the horse had got the gart [art] across the street, when the police- [police officer] officer came to let him know. 'The defendant had, at the time, promised Thomas that he would be in Huddersfield on the Saturday, and appear before the Bench to answer the charge. The summons was, however, served, upon him at his residence, and as the expenses were so much, the Bench let the man off on his paying them, which amounted to 9s. ' . RipInc [ripping] witHouT [without] Retns.-At [Rents.-At] the Cuildhall, [Guildhall] on Tuesday, before J. Armitage and W. W. Baitye, [Battye] Esqrs., [Esquires] a waggon- [contrive] driver, named John Marshall, in the employ of Messrs. Thornton and Co., was charged by Superintendent Heaton, with riding in a waggon, drawn by three horses, on the far-side of Bradley Bar. The defendant admitted the offence, expressed his sorrow for having violated the law, and promised not to offend in like manner again, at the same time entreating their worships to be merciful towards him, inasniicli [Clinical] as he had a wife and a large small family. -The case was dismissed, on the defendant paying the expenses. - Doc FigHtTinc [Fighting] SQUABBLE.-At the Guildhall, on Saturday last, Daniel Byrom summoned Mr. Eastwood, of Folly Hall Mill, before W. W. Battye and J. Starkey, Esqrs., [Esquires] for an alleged assault committed on complainant on the 13th Mr. Clough appeared for the defendant. It appeared that Mr, Eastwood's dog and another were, on the above- [above named] named day, fighting in the mill yard, at Folly Hall. The dog belonging to Mr. Eastwood was muzzled at the time, -but the other was without muzzle.. The owner of the other .dog requested Byrom to part them, but instead of taking hold of the dog which had fast hold of Mr, Eastwood's, he seized the dog of the latter, and began to inflict upon, it certain tortures, known only to dog fanciers, of which craft complainant appears to be regularly initiated Mr. Eastwood then seized hold upon Byrom, ordered him out of the yard, and struck him with the back of his hand over 'the mouth. This was the assault of. It was 'contended by Mr. Clough that this action would not have been brought had not Byrom borne Mr. Eastwood malice, he some time ago being one of Mr Eastwood's worknien [working] The Bench, however, thought that it was too mudh [much] to infer that because a man had once worked for another, and when an action against his former employer, to assume, a a de- [defence] fence, thit [that] the comiplaindnt [complainant] was therefore actuated by malice. After a patient hearing of the case, which occupied some time, the magistrates dismissed the summons, ...

[life,-Mes] PRESENTATION OF A TESTIMONIAL TO GEORGE CROSLAND 5 HUDDERSFIELD SAVINGS' BANK. A meeting of the trustees ahd [had] managers of the above institution was held yesterday (Friday) at the Bank, in New-street, John Sutcliffe, Esq., in the chair, when the Savings' Bank Bill which has been introduced into the Commons by Sir Charles Wood was freely canvassed. A general feeling seemed to prevail that under an undue fear of the extraordinary frauds at the Rochdale Bank, parlia- [Parliament- parliament] ment [men] might be induced to sanction the bill in question, which the majority of trustees and managers assembled conceived objectionable in many of its provisions. The following Petition, in cpposition [opposition] to the measure, was ultimately agreed to - To the Honorable the Commons of ths [the] United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland in assembled,- [assembled] The Petition of the Trustees and Managers of the Savings' Bank at Huddersfed, [Huddersfield] oe Hunbly [Humbly] sheweth,-That [shewed,-That] your petitioners, after an a tentive [a attentive] pe- [perusal] rusal [rural] of the Bill brought in by the Rt. Hon. the Chancellor of the Exchequer, relative to Savings' Banks, feel compeligd [compelled] to object to the same. That the proposed further of the rates of interest and the limitation of deposits to 100, will have a tendency to cause the withdrawal of all the larger deposits, and thus render it ex- [extremely] tremely [extremely] dificult [difficult] in many, and impossible in other cases, to engage efficient assistance to carry on the duties of the establishment. That the interest now allowed to depositors being already jess than the fundholder receives, your petitioners have, in order to induce depositors te piace [place] their money in the Huddersfield Bank, kept down the expenses so that they have been enabled to allow 2 18s. 9d. per cent., and they feel certain that any reduction of this rate will cause many depositors to withdraw, as the working classes look for good interest as well as good security. That the great principle on which all English institutions have been conducted has hitherto been to stimulate and encourage the philanthropic and public-spirited inhabitants of each district to come ferward [forward] and take the lead in the management of all such institutions which principle would be infringed upon if this bill shouid [should] pass into a law. That recent examinations have shown that out of 520 Banks which have in the course of 23 years received and puid [paid] (including interest credited) upwards of sixty-five millions, no loss has been sustained by the depositors, except in a few in- [instances] stances,-and [and] it would be difficult to point out any public cr mercantile establishments where the transactions have been con- [conducted] ducted with so little loss to the parties interested. That, in February last, nearly the whole of the depositors' pass books in the Huddersfield Bank were calied [called] in and compared with the ledgers, and no error whatever was discovered. That there are several restrictions and regulations in the pro- [proposed] posed Bill which appear to your petitioners unnecessary-such as the sending an account of all receipts and payments, and all notices of withdrawal, every day to the Commissioners- [Commissioner sand] and the restriction of not allowing investments in the names of trustees, except in tertaid [treated] cases, a8 proposed by clatise [clause] 20 and not allowing the money of minors to be withdrawn until they attain the age of 14 years, as proposed by clause 22, appeur [appear] to your petitioners positively injurious to the working-classes cases of emergency frequently arise, where a deposit made in the name of a child is required to be suddenly withdrawn. That the Bill proposes three description of officers-treasurcrs, [officers-Treasury] inspectors, and auditurs-the [auditors-the] appointment of all of which must of necessity burthen [Burton] the funds of a Savings' Bank with more ex- [expenses] penses [senses] than it can bear. That your petitioners take this opportunity of submitting to your honourable house, that the separate surplus fund of euch [such] Bank ought to be preserved to it. That your petitioners, from their practical knowledge of Sa- [Savings] vings' [rings] Banks, are of opinion that the Commissioners have already ample powers for the security of depositors; but should they be considered not to have such powers, your petitioners are of opinion that inspectors, appointed by them, pertodically [periodical] visiting each Savings' Bank would be a suffictent [sufficient] check against fraud or bad management. Your petitioners, therefore, humbly pray that such modifi- [modify- modifications] cations may be introduced into the proposed Bill as will secure to the trustees and managers of Savings' Banks the privileges and benefits they have hitherto enjoyed. And your petitioners will ever pray, &c. NOTICE TO ADVERTISERS. An advertisement of an objectionable 'character was left at our office yesterday, with the sum of 6s., as a pre-pay- [payment] ment [men] for its insertion this day. On a perusal of the ad- [advertisement] vertisement [advertisement] in question, after the party had quitted our office, we found it to be of a personal and scurrilous character, with no name affixed thereto, and inasmuch as we conceive it calculated and intended to cast reflec- [reflect- reflection] tion [ion] on a praiseworthy class of tradesmen we decline inserting it, though in the shape of an advertisement. 'The money will be returned on proper application being made at our office. HOoLMFIRTH.-At [Holmfirth.-At] the time of going to press our Holmfirth parcel had not come to hand. as BIRTHS.
