Several communications have latterly reached us from subscribers, in which they complain of delay in the delivery of the Chronicle in many instances, and from others who complain that they are sometimes a week or fortnight even without their paper. As the Chronicle is in all cases duly despatched from our office, when ordered through ourselves, we request that those of our subscribers who may be subjected to these irregularities in future, will immediately make known the fact to the proprietors, in order that these irregularities may be enquired into and rectified. THE CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, OCT. 26, 1850. Tat marvellous structure, the Britannia bridge, was permanently opened on Monday for the passage of trains. On the previous Saturday it was in- [inspected] spected, [selected] and tested in a variety of ways, by Captain Simmons, the Government inspector. The deflec- [defile- deflection] tion [ion] caused by a train of twenty-eight waggons and two engines, with 280 tons of coal, was only three- [requites] quarters of an inch. When the same train was shot through at the greatest attainable velocity, the deftection [detection] was sensibly less in the way of undu- [undue- undulation] lation [nation] than when the load remained at rest on the tube. The imports of grain of all kinds, in the month ending October 10, amounted to 830,113 quarters, above one-half being wheat. Of flour the imports were 511,837 cwt. The whole of the grain and flour immediately went into consumption, so that the quantity remaining in warehouse in the United Kingdom, on the 10th instant, was very small- [small] 18,776 [776] quarters of wheat, and 3,966 ewt. [et] of flour. Although Prussia some time ago concluded a peace with Denmark, and left that power to settle its quarrel with Schleswig-Holstein [Schedules-Holstein] in its own way, it seems to be an undoubted fact that she has never- [nevertheless] theless [helpless] been aiding the Duchies to carry on the war, by permitting Prussian soldiers, whose period of service had expired, to enter the army of Schleswig- [Schedules- SchleswigHolstein] Holstein. These troops, it is said, have gone over in considerable numbers, and have even been per- [permitted] mitted [fitted] to take with them their regimentals. Russia and France have protested against this mode of procedure on the part of Prussia, and have solicited the concurrence of England in peremp- [Emperor- peremptorily] torily [truly] requiring Prussia to fulfil her recent engage- [engagements] ments [rents] with Denmark, and withdraw her support from the Schleswig [Schedules] Army. The Times boldly asserts that- In the event of Prussia hesitating to comply with this reasonable demand, Russia and France are prepared to back it, not by an unpro- [intro- unprofitable] fitable [table] march to the territory under dispute, but in a way more congenial to their tastes-by an inva- [vain- invasion] sion of the Silesian [Silesia] provinces of Prussia on the one side, and the Rhenish en the other. They are, however, anxious to gain over England to the com- [compact] pact, without whose concurrence they do not deem it advisable to move at present. A Cabinet Coun- [Con- Council] cil [col] met to discuss these points on Wednesday, regarding which the 7 mes asserts, in a semi-official tone, that England declines to join with Russia and France in such a note as we have described, but proposes that all three powers shall separately remonstrate with Prussia on her present breach of faith with the Danish Government. The people of Hesse Cassel [Case] are still kept in a state of anxious suspense, not knowing what will be done. On the one hand, preparations for war seem to be quietly going on, under the directions of the Frankfort Diet whilst on the other there are indications that the Elector will solve the peri- [per- perilous] lous [loud] difficulty by at last consenting to dismiss Has- [Passenger] SENPFLUG, [sinful] and forming a ministry who will act on constitutional principles. This advice has been given by Prussia, and, if it be followed, all danger of war from this cause will be averted. THE EXTENSION OF THE TOWN. By an advertisement which appears in another column of this day's Chronicle, it will be seen that active steps have been resolved on for the formation of the New Town of Huddersfield in that part which has been up to this time locked-up from the builders. We allude, of course, to the invitation by the Huddersfield Improvement Commissioners for tenders for the formation, sewering, [swearing] draining, and ballasting of the four intended new streets, to be forthwith opened-out on the large space between the new Railway Station and Northgate, and be- [between] tween the Railway viaduct, near to the Brick Fac- [Fact- Factory] tory, and Kirkgate. Those four streets-one of which, to be called John William-street, is to be a continuation of the present New-street through the site of the present George Hotel, and the. other three running between the new John William- [Illustrate] street and Northgate-are to be fully completed at the expense of the Trustees of Sir J. W. Ramsden ; the required notices having been given by the Trustees for that purpose, under the Improvement Act and thus, while the public are assured that the works will be such as to satisfy the body of authority who have the general sewering [swearing] and pav- [pa- paving] ing of the town in charge they will also have the gratification of knowing that this great measure of town extension will be accomplished without the rates being appropriated for the main benefit of the Ramsden Estate. In the course of the past week we have heard that another important step in this direction of town extension has been resolved upon -and which will have an important influence on the architectural character of our town erec- [ere- erections] tions. [tins] Most people are aware that from the Cherry Tree Inn, in Westgate, to the entrance of the Rail- [Railway] way Tunnel, at the bottom of New North Road, the land and buildings thereon belong to the Lon- [London] don and North-Western and Lancashire and York- [Yorkshire] shire Railway Companies. The erections now standing thereon are, as our readers are aware, of an inferior description, like unto the erections below, between the Cherry Tree Inn and the George Hotel indeed, in some respects, they are perhaps of a better class, But the public generally will be glad to learn that the Railway Companies y have it in contemplation, if it be not already deter- [determined] mined on, to clear the whole of that space of the existing erections; to widen the approach from Westgate to their elegant station, by opening out & noble drive to lay out the space then left at their convenience for private entrances for goods, and with such arrangements as will assuredly make the situation most eligible and then to sell the plots so laid out, and with those conveniences, to the highest bidders. Now, in thus acting, the Railway Directors are OTICE [NOTICE] IS HEREBY GIVEN, that the Hud- [HUD- setting a most important and a most praiseworthy public example; an example which it would be well for the Managers of the RamspEn [Rams pen] Estates to copy before it be too late. There are the buildings below, and including the Cherry Tree Inn, down to the Parish Church. If those buildings are allowed to remain to cumber the ground, the otherwise excellent plan of Town extension now put forth by the Trustees will be incomplete-will be marred. By acting in the manner the Railway Companies propose to act, a New Town would assuredly arise, of which none would be more proud, or have more reason to be satisfied, than the owners of the Ramspen [Ramsden] Es- [Estate] tate. Let us hope that the public-spirited example set by the Railway Companies will not be without its due effect. It will be a standing reflection on the management of the Ramspen [Ramsden] Estate if in such an important matter as this-important to their own interests,-that management allows itself to be outdone in public spirit by two bodies of private traders. a THE LATE EDUCATION MEETING AND THE REV. JOHN HANSON. In another part of this day's Chronicle will be found a communication from the Rev. Jonn Hanson, of Milnsbridge, in reference to the late Huddersfield Meeting on Education; but more particularly in reference to the comments on that meeting which we, as journalists, deemed it our duty to make in the last number of our paper. That communication we have inserted just as we have received it from its Rev. author though the terms of the private injunction which accompanied that communication would have justified us in re- [returning] turning the whole upon Mr. Hanson's hands. We choose, however, to let the Rev. gentleman be seen in his own habiliments, that the public may judge between us as to the points at issue but we cannot forbear telling the Rev. writer that gentlemen, in sending communications to the press, don't accom- [com- accompany] pany [any] them with interdictions and conditions, which insinuate and imply unfair conduct on the part of the conductors of the press. Mr. Hanson tells us that his letter has been written in a cool, kind, and Christian spirit. Well, we will not at present dispute the assertion ; nor even call in question the taste or humility of such a declaration on the part of the writer himself, though ordinary people will, no doubt, fancy that it would have been more modest to have let the production speak for itself on these points. We only say-there the production is and the reader will judge both as to its coolness, kind ness, candour, and Christian-spirit. Mr. Hanson avers that our comments last week, as far as he was concerned, were written under the influence of a decided and great that we evidently imagined that at the meeting refer- [referred] red to, he was at one time favourable to National Education; then neuter with respect to it; and last of all actively opposed to it. For the Rev. gentle- [gentleman] man's information we beg to tell him that in thus averring he is under the influence of a great and decided mistake. We never committed the mistak2 [mistake] of supposing him favourable to National Educa [Edgar] tion. [ion. The first half dozen sentences he uttered convinced us to the contrary; and the subsequen [subsequent] conduct of Mr. Hanson, and especially the commu- [com- communication] nication [nation] we are remarking upon, has borne out the correctness of our first conviction. But Mr. Hanson must excuse us from reminding him, that when he first rose to address the meeting, and when he was labouring under the influence of the great and decided mistake of supposing that the education to be imparted in the intended new National Schools was to be religion-less-was to be a nega- [nena- negation] tion [ion] of all religion-was to have the very name of Go d excluded from the class-books; we say, that when Mr. Hanson was evidently labouring under the influence of this great and decided mis- [is- mistake] take, HE PROFESSED NEUTRALITY-he avowed-he declared, that he was not an opponent and it was not until that great and decided mistake had been corrected; until he had been shown that the proposed education was not religion- [religion less] less-was [was] not a negation of all religion-that nei- [ne- neither] ther [the] the name of God nor the Scriptures would be excluded from the class-books of the school-but that these schools would be only UNSECTARIAN and NON-DENOMINATIONAL ;-it was not until all this had been shown to Mr. Hanson so conclusively that he felt constrained to exclaim that such an education was a religious one-one that differed little from his own conception of what education ought to be ;- it was not until all this had transpired that Mr. Hanson avowed himself an opponent-and showed his opposition first by proposing an amendment declaring that the motion then before the meeting,-and which affirmed the PRINCIPLE that the educational wants of the people and the social claims of the working popula- [popular- population] tion [ion] loudly call for the establishment of Free Public Schools wherein to impart such an educa- [Edgar- education] tion [ion] as above indicated, was altogether a deceiver of the public of Huddersfield ;' and, second, when the Rev. gentleman found that this kind amendment could not be received, his opposition was evinced by his seconding another amendment, the meaning of which was that he could not understand nor comprehend a PRINCIPLE until he had before him all the details by which it was intended to carry that principle into practice These are the bare facts of the case professed neutrality, when the Rev gentleman was under the impression that the pro- [proposed] posed education was Godless -active opposition, even to the declaration that the promoters of the meeting were altogether deceivers of the public of Huddersfield, when the discovery was made that the education intended was to be-not religion-less, but wnsectarian [sectarian] and non-denominational. However, let that pass. Mr. Hanson says he went to the meeting unprepared and it was evident to all that such was the case. We assert, that he was, and that he still is, unprepared to grapple with the PRINCIPLE affirmed in the resolution adopted by such a decided majority of the meeting in question. For what on this point does Mr. Hanson tell us,in thishis [this his] coolly writtencommunication [written communication Why, that to call the public together to ajirm [Jim] a general prin- [pain- principle] ciple [Copley] of action or polity, before all the details have been prepared whereby that principle is to be applied to the business of life, is premature is leaving Jericho before the beard is grown. Let us test the philosophy and the logic of such reasoning. A number of individuals hold the PRINCIPLE that education is doth a social and an in- [individual] dividual [individual] duty and they believe that these duties can be best, more completely, more satistactorily [satisfactory] and more efficiently performed by means of institu- [institute- institutions] tions [tins] national in extent and character, but locally governed and controlled. They, believe, more- [moreover] over, that a large majority of the enlightened public think so too. To test the matter they call that public together in their several neighbour- [neighbourhoods] hoods, and they ask, do you hold with us that edu- [ed- education] cation ought to be national and will you take part (by delegation) with your neighbours to devise a scheme applicable to all parts, whereby education can be made national No, says the Rev. JoHN [John] SCOTCH TERRIER, of the pure disposal in appropriate plots for warehousing, with Hanson, you ought not to ask any such ques- [questions] tions. [tins] You ought; you, who call this particular meeting you, who are only seeking the opinion of a district, and modestly asking that district to let other districts have an equal say and action on the points involved you, before you do this, ought to have a plan ready cut and dried, and submit the to us in all its details and unless you do so, you act prematurely-you are beardless and we cannot say whether we agree with you in principle or not, because until we have all the details of the scheme before us whereby that principle is to be applied to practice, we can neither comprehend the principle nor judge of its truth Again-the people of England, some time ago, felt that they had borne the burden imposed by the Corn-Laws long enough that these laws were wrong in principle, and injurious to the best inte- [inter- interests] rests of the nation from their restrictive operation. Feeling this, they said so. They affirmed the prin- [pain- principle] CIPLE [COPLEY] that taxes on food ought neither to be imposed nor submitted to; and they demanded the unconditional Repeal of the laws founded on this erroneous principle, and the recognition and embodiment in practice of the principle of com- [commercial] mercial [commercial] freedom. But they properly left the man- [manner] ner-the [ne-the -the] details, by which this was to be done, to their representatives in Parliament. They ap- [appointed] pointed their delegates, when they found they were agreed on the general principle; and they said to those delegates, Go, and devise a scheme whereby the principles we together affirm can be best re- [reduced] duced [duce] to practice. But, according to the Rev. Mr. Hanson this was wrong. The Anti-Corn-law League, when it first commenced its gigantic ope- [operations] rations to test the public mind, ought to have been presumptuous enough to devise the whole scheme of repeal-to have had it ready cut and dried, and to havesubmitted [have submitted] it to every meeting they called, before they dared to ask for an expression of opinion on the general principle That is, they ought to have set the whole country quarrelling respect- [respecting] ing the details of Corn-law Repeal and Commercial freedom, before they had ascertained whether the country was prepared to ailirm [alarm] the principle Small chance there would have been for the estab- [stables- establishment] lishment [enlistment] of the principle had they done so And yet, according to our meek, kind, and humble cor- [correspondent] respondent, they were Jeardless [Regardless] for not doing so. There is another mistake which Mr. Hanson is influenced by, which we must take leave to correct. He says that it has been conceded that to call the proposed schools secular schools, is, in very truth, a misnomer. We beg to tell the Reverend Gentleman that no such concession has been made -except by himself. The discovery was entirely and purely his own. He pronounced the proposed education to be religious-to be accordant with his own notions of what education ought to be;-and then he declared that those who were seeking to secure such an education for every child in the land were deceivers of the public. With Mr. Hanson's discovery we did not quarrel. Names alter nothing in essence. He may be pleased to call that religious which we denominate secular. We care not-only that the benefit-the blessing- [blessing be] be secured and it was only because we held that Mr. Hanson was inconsistent with himself, and unfaithful to his own principles, that we ventured to call his conduct in question. Mr. Hanson asks, whether he may not, as a Christian minister, object to a National Education, of that education professes to be religion-less Be- [Because] cause BEING religion-less, it is, in his judgment, a nation framing a law to forget and pisown [poison] God In answer, we say that if the proposed Nationa [National] Education de religion-less, Mr. Hanson would hav [have] a full right to object to it, even were he not a Christian minister but we also say that neither in his ministerial nor in any other capacity, has Mr. Hanson a right te bear false witness against his neighbour. Who has advised that the education in the proposed New National Schools should be religion-less Who has proposed that the English nation should pass a law to forget and pisown [poison] God Mr. Hanson knows that no one has done so-that 20 one has thought of doing so and yet, because of his difference of opinion with those who advocate a general, unsectarian, non-denominational education, Mr. Hanson's coolness, kindness, Christianity, and- [sectarianism] xctarianism, [sectarianism] permits him to insinuate charges and allegations which, he ought to know are untrue; but which he also knows to be calculated to excite the prejudices, and array the sectarian hostility of the unthinking and the untaught. Mr. Hanson also meekly says, that he will not attack us with that ungentlemanly ferocity which some persons exhibited at the late meeting. We feel bound, fo the honour of Huddersfield, to repel the libel on the character of the meeting contained in this insinuation. The meeting in question was ckaracterised [characterised] by an admirable display of for- [forbearance] bearance [balance] and fair play. Every speaker who presented himself was heard with marked at- [attention] tention; [mention] and scarcely an interruption was offered, excepting the occasional exclamations of individuals which are always to be calculated upon. The argument of each speaker was carefully heard ; -patiently heard. The tone, temper, and conduct of that meeting showed that, with the thinking portion of the inhabitants of Huddersfield, insidi- [inside- insidious] ous [us] attempts to excite prejudice, and sleek affected humility, will not pass current for reason or argument; but that a keen sense of dis- [discrimination] crimination [recrimination] is abroad, which will bring all parties, and all principles, and all systems, to the test of utility and truth. In these re- [respects] spects, [sects] the late meeting contrasted most favourably with a former meeting in the very same room- [room when] when, as we have heard, the adherents to Mr. Hanson's side of the question showed anything but a love of fair play anything but a disposition to argue the points at issue when they hooted dawn those who questioned the all-sufficiency of Volun [Voluntary] taryism [trays] and when the yells, and shouts, and screams, and uproar were more characteristic of phrenzy [frenzy] than of a deliberative assembly. We hope such ferocity as was then exhibited, will never again be manifested in Huddersfield, on any occa- [occur- occasion] sion, or on any subject. In conclusion we notice a portion of advice which the Rev. Mr. Hanson, coolly, kindly, and Christian- [Christian] like, vouchsafes to ourselves. Now, we trust we are not arrogant enough to despise advice-least of all good advice. It is sometimes our. province as journalists to offer advice; we ought therefore to be prepared to take advice, when offered in a kind and considerate spirit. We confess, however, that we were hardly prepared for the kind of advice our meek and kindly adviser, the Rev. Jonn Hanson, has for us. He; who writes in a kind, cool, and Christian manner; who is almost the very per- [personification] sonification [signification] of gentleness and meek humility, bids us not to say in our haste that all men are liars, and not to seem as though we were emulating the ferocity of a merciless tiger.' In answer, we say that we should be sorry to do any such thing as say that all men are liars; and we trust common civility alone would prevent us from designating any man a liar. No, Mr. Hanson; that is not the kind of language we indulge in. That language belongs to those who, while they affect humility, and Christianity, can bear false witness against their neighbour can indulge in unfounded insinua- [insignia- insinuations] tions; [tins] can evince no generous sympathy with the efforts of the people out of the narrow, confined, contracted, mind-crippling circle of sectarianism ; and who, when thwarted, can be as ferocious as the tiger with their opposers. ------- -- . MR. BOOTHROYD'S LETTER. Since the foregoing was written, we have received a communication from Mr. JosepH [Joseph] BoorHRoyD [Boothroyd] on this subject, which will also be found in another column. To Mr. BootHRoyp [Boothroyd] we have little to say. His letter is only an apology for his appearance at the meeting of Wednesday week. We dare say Mr. Booturoyp [Boothroyd] feels that some apology for the figure he cut at the meeting necessary, and we are happy to be the medium of enabling him to do so. But, notwithstanding such apology, the subject matter remains precisely where it was. There was a reso- [rose- resolution] lution [Lotion] affirming the principle of National Secular Education before the meeting and to that resolu- [resolute- resolution] tion [ion] Mr. Booruroyp [Boothroyd] did not oppose a counter reso- [rose- resolution] lution, [Lotion] affirming the sufficiency of voluntary and individual effort for educational purposes. The amendment he did move, he admits, might have been improved upon but, with a fatuity common to a certain class of minds, he still contends for its being a bona fide amendment, although its terms were self-contradictory, and although it con- [contained] tained [gained] the assumption, that a PRINCIPLE cannot be comprehended or decided upon without the details by which that principle is to be applied to practice, are explained also-an assumption true neither in logic nor in reason. As to the omissions in our report of the meeting, Mr. Booturoyp [Boothroyd] has only pointed out one the fact, that the speech of a gentleman intimately con- [connected] nected [connected] with this journal was not given. And surely Mr. BootHroryp [Boothroyd] ought not to complain of that If we, having but a limited space at dis- [disposal] posal, [Postal] chose to give that space to Mr. BoorHrorp [Northrop] and his friends, rather than report the observa- [observe- observations] tions [tins] ot ourselves, surely this conduct should have sheltered us from a complaint on the part of Mr. Boornroyp, [Boothroyd] and from an implied charge of unfair- [unfairness] ness What the gentleman in question then ad- [advanced] vanced [advanced] verbally has been stated deliberately in the columns of the Chrovicle [Chronicle] since its commencement, and if the occasion again arise will fearlessly be repeated. Mr. Boornroyp, [Boothroyd] in his letter, as in his speech, takes the same ground as the Rev. John Hanson- [Hanson] that the term secular, is used to denote that which is opposed to, or at least distinct from-religion. Does not Mr. Boothroyd remember that the very charge, founded and arising out of this conscien- [conscience- conscientious] tious [Titus mode of putting the question, namely that of infidelity, or at least negation of religion, was hurled against Mechanics' Institutions and their promoters, when first commenced, by those who also held that the working classes ought not to be educated at all. Believing thus-and no doubt feeling thus-with what pride, with what emotion, must Mr. Booth- [Boothroyd] royd receive the testimony of the Hon. and Rev. H. D. Erskine, the Dean of Ripon, given on Wed- [Wednesday] nesday [Wednesday] night last, and reported elsewhere, as to the good effect of these secw ar [sec ar] teachings upon reli- [deli- religion] gion [Gin] itself and how humiliated must he feel that he has allowed his sectarianism to prompt him to charge and misrepresent others, precisely as he has himself (if he be a consistent and active supporter of Mechanics' Institutions) been charged and mis- [is- misrepresented] represented Let both Mr. Boothroyd and Mr. Hanson read the good Dean's testimony on this point of secu- [sec- secularism] larism [Loris] being opposed to religion-and feel ashamed at the want of confidence they betray in their own principles to win their way by the inherent power of truth into the heart of an educated man.

M. , Wakley, [Walker] the deputy cor. ner, [ne] held an inquest at the Mary- [Marylebone] lebone [bone] workhouse on the body of Andrew Riley, an aged crossing sweeper, who had for many years officiated at the corner of Baker-street, Portman-square, and whvuse [whose] ready wit and quaint replies had gained him many friends amongst theresidents [the residents] of theneighbourhood. [the neighbourhood] It appeared that upon the Thursday previous, whilst pursuing hisavocations, [his avocations] he was knocked down by a four-wheeled cab, and sustained ' injuries which in the end proved fatal. The deceased was . in the habit of saying that he had fought under his Majesty in the Rebellion of '92, and since then in the Peninsula, ' and had often come across Master Bonhy, Bonny, whom he de scribed as a rare 'cute, but slippery customer. He had succeeded, in his crossing, an old gentleman who had amassed a large fortune. Riley himself resided at a lodging- [lodging house] house in Henrietta-street, Manchester-square, where he oc- [occupied] cupied [occupied] the best apartments. He frequently boasted of his wealth, and was wont upon grand occasions to regale his comrades with the beat of eve ing. He is stated to have paid s beary [Berry] suse for the will of the crossing, which, wever, [ever] amply remunerated him for his outlay.
