8 THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, JULY 27, 1850. CHARGE OF INDECENT ASSAULT UPON A RESPECTABLE FEMALE, IN FENAY LANE, ALMONDBURY. Almond . ooth, [both] weaver, Aimon [Simon] 9 On Tuesday last John een [en] Guildhall, cliarged [charged] with was placed in the dock at 20, Jent [Sent] assault Mrs committing an indecent and violent assault upon . Jepson, a respectable looking middle aged female, on Thursday, the 18th instant. The magistrates present were J. Armitage and B. N. R. Batty, Esqrs., [Esquires] and the case underwent a long and careful examination. From tle [te] evidence given the assault was proved to have been committed in Fenay-lanc, [Fenay-lane] in the immediate vicinage [vicinity] of Fenay-grange, about midnight on the day stated. The spot, which is naturally lonely and sccluded, [secluded] was more narticularly [particularly] so at so late an hour, which will account for the fact that none of the inhabitants in the immediate joeality [quality] heard Mrs. Jepson's screams, excepting a party of workmen who were fixing an engine at Birks mill, a distance of sozae [size] five hundred yards. During her cx- [examination] amination [examination] the prcsecutrix [prosecutrix] was very much affected, and was allowed to retire from the wituess-Lox [witness-Lox] on conclud- [concluded- concluding] ing her examination. The who was respectably dressed, seemed fully conscious of the painful position im [in] which he was placed. Mr. Dransfield appeared for tue prosecution, and Mr. J. J. Freeman for the defence. Mr. Dransficld, [Dransfield] in opening the case, briefly detailed the circumstances under which the assault oon [on] and then proceeded to examine Mrs. Jepson, anu [any] atter- [utter- afterwards] wards to ci 1tnesses. [witnesses] . wre [re] Semon [Sermon] ot Chapel Austorn, [Austonley] near Worksop, on Deine [Dene] sworn, said,-On Thursday last, the 18th instaat, [instant] dders eld doers ed] by the Jast [East] train from Liverpool. T caine to Huddersfield by the 2 arrived at Huddersfield a little before eleven o'clock at nicht. [night] I was going to Almondbury to see iny [in] brother- [brethren] inlaw, [only] William Copley. He lives with B. . R. Batty, Esq., at Fenay. When I got near to Ahnondbury [Almondbury] Church I met with two men, and asked them how far I had io go the village before i turned to Fenay. One of the men. who was in his shirt sleeves, said I had to go a little further down ani [an] then turn to zov [Nov] left. I walked on, saying, If I get out of the village I can find my way. As I walked on the man in his shirt sleeves said, Are you going to Fenay [Fenay] If you arc. you turn in at some iron gates. I said, Thank you, Tm not goiug [going] so far as that I ain [in] going to Wil- [Welfare] Yara [Yard] Copley's. As I was going down the lane I saw some one come over the fields towards where I was. He caine up io the wall Lefore [Before] me, and said, You'd tl me something when you was up yonder I said, 'Me tell you sowething; [something] nothing of the kind. I walked on. and he then leaped over the wail. I went on the causeway, and he walked on the road on my right side until Icame [Came] to the gate, and then he came up to me and put his hand on my left shoulder, and put his face quite cloxe [close] to mine, and with his right hand scized [seized] the lower part of my body very violently. The witness next described cther [other] attempted familiari- [familiar- familiarity] tics, which are unfit for publication. I screamed out as loud as I could for my cousin Wiliiam, [William] and I screamed until I could scream no more. In the struggle we both caine to the ground, and he held me down, with one hand over my mouth, and the other hand round my neck. I could not then scream; I was exhausted. He then left me. The man I asked my way of to Fonay, [Fenay] who was in his shirt sleeves, was the same man that assaulted me in the way I have described as above. I was in a very exhausted state when I got to Willian Copley's. They were in bed; it was after twelve o'clock. The following riorning [morning] I gave information to the constable. It was Mr. Gil. I proceeded with him to Alinondbury [Almondbury] in the evening. We went into Mr. Lodze's, [Lodge's] the Woul [Would] Pack ; tience [thence] to a beer-house. I do not know by whom tkat [that] beer-house is kept. I went into tho room at the far end of the passage. I heard some onc [on] talking before I got into the room. It was the voice of the man who as- [assaulted] saulted [saluted] me. I had no doubt it was the man from his voice. I went forward and I saw him. I had no ocea- [ocean- occasion] sion to go so far as I did, but I wished to be quite sure that he was the person. There were from twenty to thirty persons in the room. It was quite full. When got in, the prisoner came up to me and said, Here, sup jass, [Jas] sup lass but I took no notice of him. I have no doubt in the least that he is the man. The constable zvok [Vokes] him into custody. Cross-examined by Mr. J. 1. Freeman.-I never saw this mau [may] before. It was a fine moonlight night, It was not always very hazy. The moon shone very bright, but sometimes it was overcast. I met two men a litile [little] before I came to the churchyard. They were dressed in dark clothes. One of them was in his shirt slceves, [sleeves] would not be quite sure that the man in his shirt sleeves had a hat on; I think he had. His trousers were no colour. I think his waistcoat was Ljue. [Luke] There was only one man came over the wall. I did not take particular notice whether the two men were alike in stoutness. I swore to him from his voice. I did not take particuler [particular] notice of his features, further than that he was a dark man. I will swear to his dress. He was not dressed as he is now. I first complained to the four men wio [woo] came up from the mills. I cannot tcl [cl] the distance from the place where I was insulted to where those men were working. It was below the farm. After he assaulted me he did not go over the wall. I 'did not see him lcave [leave] me; I merely saw him on the opposite side of the wall get over the fence. I was in- [insensible] sensible from the injuries I received, but I saw hinn [Inn] get ever the hedge into the ficld. [field] I saw no more of hin. [in] The men from the mill were coming up towards me. I aid not tell my brother that night. I never did tell him all particulars. I told his wife the morning follow- [following] ing. I could not tell them that night I was so exhausted. They asked me what was the matier; [matter] I cried, and told them that I had been very ill-used by some men whom I had met. Mr. Barty [Barry] said that he did not think that Fenay Grange, as the crow flew, would be more than 200 or 250 yards from the place where the assault was committed. ross-examination by Mr. Freeman continued.-I did not go to John Gill's. I was notable to go. Mr. Gill first at my brother's house. He came to me there the following day-Friday morning I think it was, Copley went for Gill by my direction. About eight or nine o'clock we went to Lodge's (the Wool Pack). I id not sce [se] the prisoner at I saw him at Pamwell's [Powell's] beerhouse. [beer house] We went past a room that was empty, forward to a room at the other end of the passage, at the left hand side. There was a great number of people there, and I saw the prisoner. I had given no description to Gill before I went there, beyond saying what dress he had on. The man who asked me to sup was rather fresh, and that was the man who insulted me. By Mr. Dransfield-He was dressed the same as be the night before. By Mr. Armitage-I am quite sure this is the man pointing to the prisoner who assauited [assaulted] me. William Copley, a servant, with B. N. R. Batty, Esq., was next sworn and said-On Thurs- [Thursday] day night last I went to bed about a quarter to eleven. After I got to bed I heard the dug bark. I did not getup until there was a ratling rating cameat [came] thedoor. [their] I then got up and threw up the window and said Whose there-what dio [do] you want I saw a woman in the yard quite plain. I cid not know who she was. She said Open the door and I will tell you who I am-I have been to Liverpool. I came down and saw it was Mrs. Jepson. I did not know her dress. I said to my wife It is Sarah. When I came down Mrs. Jepson was sat upon the wall straighten- [straightening] ing her bonnet. She shook hands with me, and seemed rather afraid when I took her in atthe [Arthur] door that I was going to take her into the cellar, and said, Don't take 'me down there. She looked very forlorn, very much ruffed. Her shawl was very dirty, and I asked her what had been to do, and she said, A man in the lane has insulted me, and thrown my clothes over my head. My wife was present. From Mrs. J epson's general appearance she seemed as if she had been in- [insulted] sulted. [suited] Her bonnet is broken all to pieces, and her cap is very much torn. I went up the lane but 1 could see nobody. Joseph Bedford, on being sworn, said,-I am a smith. 1 am working at Birk's mill. I was working there last Thursday. The distance from where I was working to 'Fenay-lane would be 500 yards. I remember ast [at] Thursday night. I was working on that night. I gave over working when I heard the screams of the woman. It would be about twelve o'clock. The cause of my working so late was, we were a-gate putting up an engine, and we have had to work night and day nearly. heard some screams when I was in the engine-house. I was in the window, which was open. Before I had worked very long, I heard several shrieks; they ap- [appeared] speared to come from Fenay-lane. I did not immediately proceed there after I heard the first scream. It con- [continued] tinued [continued] a considerable time, whilst all the men in the place heard it. I heard it grow louder and louder, then it gradually died away. I said to the men who were wear me, Let's go down, and sce [se] what's matter. When we got to Mill-gate, we heard no more, except Mr. Batty's dogs barking. We stopped there a little bit, and said, we would go as far as Mr. Batty's new place. When we got to Mr. Batty's farm, we heard a man talk- [talking] ing to a woman, before we saw her. He gave directions to her to go to the iron-gate. I believe that man wasa [was] farmer. When we got a little further we saw no one 'but the woman. We made no remark to her just then. 'The man that answered to her told her to go to the iron gate, and she replied, I have been, but it is locked. I said, Is there something amiss but she did not answer me. I said we had heard screams down at the mill that we could not bear to hear; but still she did not speak. I said she need not be frightened, and then she said, It was me; I was coming from Liverpool, and have been detained by the train. -- [train] Mr. Freeman.-I object in limine [imine] to this conversation being given in evidence. Mr. Dransfield argued the point, and the bench ruled that it should be heard. Examination continued.-She told me then that she had met a man who had knocked her down and ill- [alluded] used her. She still walked forward towards the iron- [iron sake] sake, and did not seem as if she wished to say anything open it, ani [an] she got to the gate she could not ant cried out for one of us to go and open it. sail ne it, and then she said she would tell a in the morning. Iheard [Heard] her rap at William door but no one answered at first. She 3 ae Will you see me cower here tell and and ail night Thad ts ow that she hardly knew what she was doing. She was very much frightened and flurried. Cross-examined by Mr. Freeman.-The moon was overcast, and it was a gloomy night. I could not distinguish a man by his dress, more than eight or ten yards. Not further. ; Thomas Gill, the constable of Almondbury, on being sworn, deposed.-In consequence of information, re- [received] ceived [received] on Friday morning last, of an assault being com- [committed] mitted [fitted] in Fenay-lane, I went down with the last witness to examine the place. I saw there had been a good deal of scuffling, but we could not trace any foot-marks. I went down to William Copley's, and saw Mrs. Jepson. She said she should know the man if she saw him again. I went with her to the Wool Pack Inn; from thence to Pamweli's [Powell's] beerhouse. [beer house] There was a room full of com- [company] pany-at [any-at -at] least from twenty to thirty persons were sat there. 1 told her to go into that room, and look round and see if she saw the man. She came back and shook her head. I told her to go back and look very carefully. She did so, and the prisoner came up, and said, Here, lass, sup; and she then said, That is the man among a thousand. He had 'dark trousers and a cap on. Mrs. Jepson and I returned to the Wool Pack. The prisoner shortly afterwards followed us, and I took him into custody. He was dressed the same as when I brought him to Huddersfield. Cross-examined by Mr. Freeman.-She gave me a description before I went in. Ido not know why the prisoner followed me into the Wocl [Wool] Pack. I know a man named Thomas Vickerman. He is a man about the same height as the prisoncr, [prisoner] of dark complexion. He might in some respects resemble the prisoner, but there were differences. He was not so dark by a good deal. I have known the prisoner all his life. He lives in Almondbury. He isa weaver. I have not known him to be convicted before. I do not know that Vicker- [Vickers- Vickerman] man was working in the hay-field that day. I do not know that the parties in Pamwell's [Powell's] had been working in the hay-field. I do know Booth had. He lives about a quarter of a mile from the spot where the assault took place. Booth was rather fresh on Friday. This was the case for the prosecution. Mr. J. 1. Freeman made a powerful appeal on behalf of his client, but was not im [in] a position to offer any evidence, and could do no more than say that Booth had protested his innocence, and.in fact denied being present on the occasion, and concluded by the very questionable mode of removing the guilt from his client's shoulders by throwing out suspicions against Vickerman. No witnesses were called for the defence, and after a short consultation, Mr. Armitage said it was quite clear to the Bench that the prisoner was the party who had committed the assault, which was one of the most gross and violent attacks ever made upon a defenceless woman. It was well for him he had not committed the capital offence, or he would have been sent to York to take his trial; as it was they should go to the utmost extent of the law end fine him 5 and expenses. In default of payment the prisoner, after protesting his innocence, was committed to Wakefield for Two Morths [Months] to hard labour. CORRESPONDENCE. THE HUDDERSFIELD AND HOLMFIRTH RAIL- [RAILWAY] WAY ARRANGEMENTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE. Str,-As [St,-As] one of the chief duties of a journal is to watch over the interests of the inhabitants of the town in which it is published, I shall be obliged if you will insert the following facts, which speak for themselves, in your excellent paper. Last Tuesday night, feeling inclined for a ride, I thought I would go as far as Berry Brow Station, by the quarter past seven train, p.m., and having taken a ticket, I expected of course to start at the appointed time. But no such thing. Wait, wait, wait; but no train came till a quarter to eight, exactly half-an-hour behind time. Being market day, there might be some excuse, but yesterday evening the train was behind again half-an-hour, and I understand is so constantly. If the company publish time tables, they should abide by them, and not keep the public waitmg [wait mg] in such an irregular manner. I remain, yours respectfully, ANTI-HUMBUG. - - -- . PEEL MONUMENT IN HUDDERSFIELD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE. Str,- [St] Huddersfield being destitute of public grounds for the recreation and amusement of the middle and lower classes of society, I beg to suggest that if a piece of ground could be taken or purchased near the town, in an advantageous situation, by the subscriptions of the people of Huddersfield and its immediate vicinity, and laid out to advantage, something like Peel's Park, Sal- [Salford] ford, it would afford to the inhabitants that enjoyment which the people of Manchester and other manufactur- [manufacturer- manufacturing] ing towns partake of, and perhaps would be far better than expending a e sum of money in the erection of a stone or marble monument to perpetuate the memory of a man, who was in truth the friend of the working classes of this country. This, Sir, is intended as a mere suggestion, but perhaps it may not have occurred to any of your readers, and therefore I shall feel obliged by its insertion -I am, yours, &c., AN ADMIRER OF SIR ROBERT. Huddersfield, July 28rd, 1850. DIRECTING OF LETTERS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE. Your correspondent last week would have acted more prudently if he had consulted with a prac- [pray- practical] tical [critical] man connected with the post-office before he ven- [en- ventured] tured [cured] on suggesting any change in this mighty depart- [department] ment, [men] as regards the mode of directing letters for cer- [er- certainly] tainly [mainly] a greater Irishism, [Irish] and a more unnatural, per- [perplexing] plexing, [placing] annoying system, than that of placing the post town at the head instead of the foot of the direction, could not be adopted, which every sorter of letters can testify besides, if desirable, you could not get the public into the habit for a century, if at all, generally. Therefore, why suggest what would be a great evil without the least utility -Uniformity, plain writing, correct address, and the stamp placed at the right hand upper corner, are all that is required to facilitate dis- [dispatch] patch. Yours truly, WM. MOORE, Postmasier. [Postmaster] Posi-office, [Post-office] July 24, 1850. -- - - BATHING ACCOMMODATION OF HUDDERS- [UDDERS- HUDDERSFIELD] FIELD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, Siz,-Would [Six,-Would] you allow me to say a few words, in your valuable paper, in behalf of myself and fellow- [fellow townsmen] townsmen, on the subject of bathing. As high as Huddersfield stands, in relation to other towns, it is, as yet, wholly unprovided with any place suitable for public bathing and, when we consider the great number of young men, who are confined to busi- [bus- business] ness the greater part of the day, to whose health bath- [bathing] ing would be so beneficial, I think there should be some place provided in which they might enjoy the luxury of a bath, and be thus invigorated and rendered more fit for the arduous duties of their business. It is true, there are baths at Lockwood; but, for a person to bathe in them, he must pay sixpence for the swimming bath, which, even during the hottest weather, is many degrees colder than the canal; and one shilling for the warm bath, which is so small that no swimmer would enter it. Some years ago, bathing was permitted in the canal; but so many persons went, at all times of the day, to that part which runs by the town, that the fair sex made complaints about its being too public, as that way was a favourite walk with many, and the practice was put an end to. Since then, bathers have been quite at a loss for any place to enjoy this recreation in, as the river is so extremely dirty (the water from dyehouses, [dyehouse] &c., running into it), that it is totally unfit to bathe in. I, together with a few friends, have been in the habit of rising about five in a morning, and walking about two miles into the country, so that we might en- [enjoy] joy a bathe in private, and it has frequently happened that no one has passed, excepting, occasionally, some factory operatives, who have been on their way to some mill at a distance. . In the public parks in London the public is allowed to bathe im [in] the rivers and ponds, before eight o'clock a.m., and after eight p.m.; and what I would call atten- [attend- attention] tion [ion] to, more particularly, is, that if the Canal Company would do the same, prohibiting bathing in the day time, between the hours I have mentioned, and within a cer- [er- certain] tain [train] limit of the town, it would render a great obliga- [oblige- obligation] tion [ion] to the many whose only time for recreation is be- [before] fore and after the times stated. At the same time, I think it will be for the interest of the company to do so, as, at present, bathing not being allowed, there are malicious persons who, out of revenge, v y damage the company's works if it were otherwise, pri- [pro- private] vate [ate] individuals would endeavour to keep the water clean, and admonish persons throwing in stones and rubbish. Trusting you will allow these few lines to be inserted, and that the above-mentioned company will consider to what extent good would be likely to be done, and allow parties to bathe, under the restrictions I have also spoken of, without being compelled to pay for it. I remain, yours &c., A LOVER OF HEALTH AND EXERCISE. - REPORT OF THE COMMISSIONERS' MEETING. In the hurry of transcribing our ne├ętes [nets] of the Commissioners' meeting of last Friday evening, the Clerk to the Board is reported to have taken part in the conversation it should have been the Clerk to the Board of Works (Mr. Joshua Hobson, and not Mr. Clough, the law clerk.) A Famity [Family] or Pics.-On Sunday last, the noted white sow Britannia, large breed, belonging to Mr. William Avison, Crosland Moor, farrowed twenty-four pigs. On the 25th of January last, she farrowed sixteen, makin [making] gz forty in less than six months. This last litter, which is her fourth, is by the celebrated white boar Lord Stanley, large breed, belonging to Mr. Edwin Stoney, of Linthwaite, near this town. of her second ition, [edition] a old, is now bringing up twelve pigs ai wley [le] ore' also by Me Stoney's Lord Manley. The mother also brought up twelve at her first litter which all arrived at maturity. DISTRICT NEWS. HOLMFIRTH. UNPARALLELED Within a mile of Holmfirth is a village called Totties, and here resides an indigent family named Gartside. The head of the house is a drunken fellow, and, of course, therefore, a constant source of misery to his wife and children. Last Tues- [Tuesday] day he was absent from home, as usual, on a drinking excursion, and his wife left the house for the purpose of seeking him out, and bringing him back. Previous to going out of her house, however, she hushed to sleep her daughter, of three years and nine months old, and then placed her in bed. Now, the under bed itself was not stretched over with sacking, as is generally the practice, but was interlaced with cords; and in consequence of the woman gathering the bed-clothes together into the centre of the bed, for the child's greater comfort in sleep, a portion of open cording at the sides was neces- [NeWS- necessarily] sarily [surely] left exposed. After the lapse of an hour and a half from the mother's departure, a neighbour woman entered the house and found the little girl comfortably asleep. Halfan [Half] hour after this time the parents re- [returned] turned, and to them a strange spectacle indeed presented itself. It was at once apparent that the poor little creature had wakened out of sleep, and had attempted to get out of bed; in this effort her head must have gone through the cords and alighted in a bowl of foul water which had been left under the bed. From this position, of course, she was unable to extricate herself ; and she was discovered with the legs and feet sticking up through the cords, the head immersed in the water under the bed, and the child, of course, quite dead. THE Vacrant [Vacant] Acr.- [Ac] For the past fortnight, this neighbourhood has absolutely swarmed with beggars and something worse. Their principal rendezvous has been a low lodging-house at Norridge, and their noisy carousals, and other abominations, in that locality, have been a source of great annoyance to the neighbours. In the afternoon of Monday last, a dirty-looking scamp, in the garb of a sailor, accompanied by a female-his wife, perhaps, issued from this nest, bearing with them a large oil-case covered basket, containing caps, or some such articles, to hawk through the outskirts of the town. Both the man and his companion were drunk, so much so, that ever and anon the woman sat down on the footpath, almost immediately after leaving the lodg- [lodge- lodging] ing-house, [house] and continued to do so at short intervals on the road. On each of these occasions the sailor belaboured her lustily with both fists and feet. So violent at length did these blows become, that some of the inhabitants, as she passed through Upper Bridge- [Restricted] strect, [street] fearful of fatal results, interfered to prevent fur- [further] ther [the] maltreatment. Mr. Thomas Haigh, of Upper Bridge, is a parochlal [parochial] constable for thai [that] district, and his attention was directed to the matter, with the pre- [presumption] sumption that, of course, he could, and would, at once apprehend the man, for the savage assaults already committed; and thus also prevent any further-per- [perhaps] haps mortal-injuries being inflicted. The constable, however, stated that he could do nothing in the matter beyond persuading the parties to leave the town, and this he apparently succeeded in doing. It becomes a serious question, though, whether the state of the law is really so defective as not to warrant the parochial constable (himself a witness of some part of the assault, in this particular case), in at once lodging the villain in the lock-up RopBERY.-Betwixt [Robbery.-Betwixt] the hours of midnight on Satur- [Star- Saturday] day last, and early the following morning, the counting- [counting house] house attached to Messrs. Midgley's dye-house, at Holme-bridge, was broken into, and the recipe and pat- [pattern] tern-books [books] of the establishment were-abstracted there- [therefrom] from. Money probably was the property coveted; but, in this, the thieves were disappointed, as they found none. A man living at Burn Lee, till recently was a workman on the premises, but had been discharged for misconduct. Suspicion being attached to him by his late employers, a search-warrant was obtained, and his house overhauled. The missing property, however, was not found in his keeping; nor, although some inkling is possessed in the matter, nothing sufficiently conclusive is yet known to warrant a hope of speedy conviction of the guilty party. Uprer [Upper] mixed Sunday-school, situated in the village of Upper Thong, near Holmfirth, not being clear from incumbrance, [incumbency] an effort has been made during the week to assist in clearing off the obligation. With this laudable intent, two sermons were preached therein on the afternoon and evening of Sunday last; the former by the Rev. J. Whittaker, and the latter by the Rev. J. Macfarlane, [MacFarlane] the Independent minister at Holmfirth. On Monday afternoon, also, the Rev. J. Hanson, of Holmfirth, Wesleyan minister,, preached in the same place. After which, a tea-party took place, followed by some good speaking, and varied by the as- [ascent] cent of fire-balloons; with other interesting proceedings. The result of the whole was to raise a sum of 14 to- [towards] wards paying the debt upon the school. Mecuanics' [Mechanics] Instirutioy.-The [Institution.-The] spirited directors of this society have again got up an annual excursion trip for their members, friends, and the public. Arrange- [Arrangements] ments [rents] had been made with the Lancashire and York- [Yorkshire] shire Company to convey a certain number of passengers from the station at Holmfirth to Liverpool-without change of carriage-and back, for 5s. third class (covered of course), and higher in proportion for second and fist. The parties had a chance too of remaining from home, for this one fare, either two days or ten, thus giving a favourable opportunity of visiting either the Isle of Man or any other moderately distant coast. Under these inducements, abcut [about] three hundred started from Holm- [Holmfirth] firth at the time appointed, seven o'clock on the morning of Wednesday last, and it is to be hoped they will ex- [experience] perience [Prince] ample enjoyment. MAGISTRATES' COURT, July 20. ON THE BENCH.-JosEPH [BENCH.-Joseph] CHARLESWORTH AND JOSHUA Esqrs. [Esquires] TRESPASSERS BEwaRE.-Arthur [Beware.-Arthur] Blenkhorn Newton, Esq., cf New-mill, charged three lads, from Choppards, named respectively Mark Green, James Ramsden, and Henry Brook, with gathering bilberries, damaging a number of young trees, and otherwise trespassing in his plantation, at Copt Hirst, near Holmfirth. Mr. Newton stated that his only object in bringing the defendants before theic [the] worships, was to protect his property he did not wish to press the charge. Under these circum- [circus- circumstances] stances, (the trespass being admitted,) the youths were suitably admonished, and mulcted in the united costs of 16s. 6d., without any penalty. BrutaL [Brutal] Assautt-Joseph [Assault-Joseph] Normanton, of Burn Lee, charged Joseph Mellor, of the same place, with having severely kicked and ill-used him on the 13th instant. It appeared that on the night of the 13th, complainant was lying helplessly drunk on the turnpike-road, near to Park Head; defendant was also passing that way, who, when he observed Normanton, immediately com- [commenced] menced [mended] poising him like a veritable Lancashire boy. From complainant's bruised and battered appearance in court, it was but too evident that a most shameful on- [onslaught] slaught [slight] had been made upon the index of the mind. Various bodily bruises, had, moreover been inflicted; and altogether a very aggravated case was made out, to the satisfection [satisfaction] of the magistrates; who at once inflicted a penalty of 10s. with 13s. costs. LOCKWOOD. ReEFusinc [Refusing] TO Pay Highway Rates.-The surveyor of Lockwood appeared before the magistrates on Saturday, charging the following ratepayers with refusing to pay the highway rate levied for that parish-John Rhodes, Charles Walker, Henry Wadsworth, Charles Beaumont, Simeon Newsam, John Rhodes, Joseph Brook, Dawson, Mary Shires, Charles Schofield, Joseph Berry, John Robin- [Robinson] son, Samuel Lodge, John Boothroyd, Walter Noble (dis- [discharged] charged), John Marshall, Samuel Lane, John Slater, Joshua Maud, Benjamin Clayton, Benjamin Harris, and Francis Priestley. Agreements had been made with most of them to pay in a certain time, or work it out, and convictions were obtained against them all. ALMONDBURY. WIFE v. HUsBAND.-On [Husband.-On] Tuesday last, at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, two old people, upwards of 70 years of age, named David Hinchliffe, and Hinchliffe, his wife, ap peared [pared] before the magistrates for a settlement of their domestic quarrels. Singular as it may seem, though these old people have been married for 50 years, they cannot now jog comfortably together down the hill of life, but must embitter their last days with angry fighting and recrimina- [recruiting- recriminations] tions. [tins] It wasa [was] lamentable sight to see two old people tot- [tottering] tering [tearing] in the dock on such an errand, and we hope it is the last time they will appear there. The details of their domestic broils was neither editying [edifying] or instructive. The wife charged the husband with ill-usage, and the magis- [magic- magistrates] trates, [rates] taking the same view of the case, fined him 2 with expenses, and in default committed the old man to the House of Correction for two months. AN ARGUMENT IN Favour or NationaL [National] EpucaTion.- [Education.- Education] A correspondent informs us that there is a National School in this village, connected with the Established Church, which was formerly under the care of a schoolmistress. Some short time sinceseveral [since several] of the inhabitants memorialised the trustees, praying that the latter would appoint an efficient schoolmaster to the management of the school. In this request the trustees most considerately complied, but we regret to learn, from our correspondent, that the working classes have not as yet availed themselves of this change for the better, there not having been, hitherto, more than three or four regular scholars. This has not arisen from any shortcomings in the new master, but mainly, our correspondent adds, from the indifference of the inhabitants, who do not seem to value as they ought the educational agency which the trustees have p within the reach of their children. We trust that this state of things will be speedily remedied, and that we shall have to report more satisfactorily as to the progress of education in this village. GOLCAR. OPENING OF A NEw [New] Court or Royal FORESTERS.-On Saturday last a large number of Royal Foresters walked in procession from the Rose and Crown Inn, Golcar Hill, ac- [accompanied] companied by a band of music, to the house of Brother John Walker, the Black Bull Inn, Ley Moor, where a new court was opened, under the name of Prince Albert, by Brother Jabez Shaw, M.W.S.C.R., attended by Brother J. Sykes, D.C.R., and others of the same court. About twenty-five members were initiated into the order, with a rospect [respect] of twenty-five more being added at the next meet- [meeting] ing Altogether the new court promises fair to become numerous, having a large number of ae members who, it is hoped, will be an ornament to the order. The usual toasts were given and responded to, and on the name of Prince Albert being proposed, the toast was drank with enthusiasm. The room was tastefully decorated with ever- [ever] &c., and all passed off well until the the time for greens, tion, [ion] when each returned home highly tified [testified wi the proooedings [proceedings] of the evening. om e BURTON table, ep ISORDERLIES.-Glover, [Is orderlies.-Glover] the Kirburton [Kirkburton] cons ap- [appeared] peared [pared] at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Tuesday last, prosecute the following summonses -George Hai [Hair] He making use of very bad language, on Sunday night, the 1 iustant. [instant] The defendant acknowledged being fresh, right enough, and was fined Is. and expenses. In default of payment committed for fourteen days to the house of cor- [correction] rection.-Henry [section.-Henry .-Henry] Goldthorpe, for being drunk and fighting. Ordered to pay 5s. and expenses.-James Lee, for a similar offence, on the 17th instant, was fined 5s. and expenses. INTERFERING WITH A CONSTABLE IN THE DISCHARGE OF HIs [His] Duty.-On Thursday evening, the 18th instant, Wel- [Well- William] liam Day, a weaver by trade, was found in one of the inns at Kirkburton, turning everything upside down, and fright- [frightening] ening [ending] her majesty's subjects in that village, by his violent proceedings. In the due course of law Mr. John Sutcliffe was called in to quell the disturbance. In vain, however, he pleaded with the prisoner to be quiet, and after striving long for such a laudable purpose, he had 'to go home for his tackling. This but served to chafe Day's violence, and his capture was an event in the worthy constable's history, which, in after years, we doubt not, when in the scar and yellow leaf, he will relate with great gusto, The prisoner did not like the idea of walking to Huddersficld, [Huddersfield] for the purpose of being cribbed, cabined, and confined nor would he move until a conveyance, for his special use, was procured. On Saturday he appeared at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, to answer the offence-deep in penitence and humility. Some time ago he had been working in a reser- [refer- reservoir] voir, [vie] where he received a severe wound on the left side of his head, and ever since, whenever he got a drop too much, he was regularly crazed. The magistrates dealt leniently with the offence and fined him 2s. 6d., but William's pride in spurning to tread his mother earth, had run up the ex- [expenses] penses [senses] to 18s. 10d. In default of payment, we believe, he was committed to Wakefield for fourteen days. MELTHAM. TREAT TO WORK-PEOPLE.-In honour of one of the sons of C. Brook, Esq., Healey House, attaining his majority, the whole of the men in their employ at Meltham Mills, above 16 years of age, were, on Saturday last, generously treated with an excursion to Liverpool and back. The work-people, to the number of upwards of 200, left the Slaithwaite station early in the morning; and after enjoy- [enjoying] ing a very pleasant day in Liverpool, returned in the even- [evening] ing in high glee, prepared to relate many an eventful story of the sights and lions they witnessed. OFFENCE AGAINST THE GAME-LAWs.-At [GAME-Law.-At] the Guildhall, Huddersfield, on Tuesday, before J. Armitage and B. N. R. Batty, Esq., John Battye, a respectable young farmer, was charged with being on Meltham Moor with a dog early on the morning of the 14th July, in company with another person, whose name did not transpire. Joseph Haigh, watcher for John Mallinson, Esq., laid the information, and Mr. Clay, solicitor, prosecuted. Mr. J. I. Freeman, for the defendant, acknowledged the truth of the evideace [evidence] given, but pleaded that there was not the slightest reason to believe that Mr. Battye, whose position in life was very respectable, had any intention to poach. The magistrates took a lenient view of the case, and ordered the defendant to pay 1, and expenses. HALIFAX. Socrety [Society] oF ARTS.-DISTRIBUTION OF REwaRDS.-On [Reward.-On] Monday last, the annual distribution of rewards took place at the rooms, John-street, Adelphi, [Delphi] in the presence of a large numbcr [number] of ladies and gentlemen. Lord Colborne, in the unavoidable absence of his Royal Highness Prince Albert, in the chair. Amongst the firms who received prizes on this occasion, we are glad to find the names of Messrs. John Crossley and Sons, for printed carpets. The prize awarded was a beautiful gold Isis medal. Accipent.- [Accident.- Accident] On Monday afternoon, an accident of serious (and likely to be fatal) character, occurred to a party, strongly intent on pleasure's dangerous track, who were proceeding to Bradford in a phacton, [phaeton] in which were four persons (two officers and two women). When near to Godley, the horse set off, and came in contact with a waggon. Besides seriously injuring the waggon- [contrive] driver (whose life is now in great danger), the whole four were more or less injured, the horse rendered useless, and the phaeton broken in pieces, so that the damages which their owner will require will be very large. New Connexion Meruopists, [Moralists] SALEM CHAPEL SuN- [Sun- Sunday] DAY ScHooLt.-On [School.-On] Sunday last, the cause of the above schools was advocated in the morning by the Rev. Law Stoney (recently stationed here from London), and in the evening by the Rev. Thomas White Ridley, of Halifax, when the collections amounted to upwards of 34, Hauirax [Harris] Sunpay [Sunday] ScHoon [School] ANNIVERSARY, QUEENS- [Queens head] HEAD.-The [The] annual sermons on behalf of the Sunday School Institution attached to the General Baptist Chapel, at the above place, were preached on Sunday, the 21st inst., in the afternoon, and evening by the Rev. John Cockin, late of Homfirth, [Holmfirth] when the liberal sum of 26 2s. 2d., was collected. BARNSLEY. ScHoot [School] SERMONS.-Two sermons were preached on Sunday last, in the Wesleyan Association Chapel, Blucher-street, by the Rev. James Everett, from York, one of the expelled ministers. The congregations were overflowing-the seats, avenues, and every available position in the chapel being taken up some time prior to the commencement of service, and large numbers were unable to gain admittance. A collection was made at the close of each service in aid of the Sunday School, belonging to which there is upwards of 500 scholars, and about 80 teachers, by which 22 was obtained. Foor [For] Race.-On Monday last a foot race came off, near Worsbro [Worse] Common, betwixt Nathan Asherts [Sheets] and John Marney, two youtful [youthful] aspirants, whose united ages, do not exceed 24, for 1 aside. The distance run was 100 yards. Considerable interest was manifested by a large assemblage of persons who were present. Asherst [Ashes] was declared winner by half a yard. SrycuLar [Secular] Crrcumstance.- [Circumstance.- Circumstance] While a man named Thos. Mellor, of Swaithe, [Swathe] was pursuing his labour in the hay- [hayfield] field, on Thursday last, he was so severely stung bya [by] bee that fears were entertained that the wound would terminate fatally. From the particulars we learn that a bee had crept into a straw hat he was wearing. On re- [removing] moving it from his head to drive away the unwelcome intruder it stung him over the head. He continued at his work for some time, but the wound eventually becoming too exceedingly painful, he went home and got some salve to apply to it, hoping that it would ameliorate the excruiating [excruciating] pai [pair] It however increased and became so intense that he fell into a fit, and con- [continued] tinued [continued] in a dangerous state for some time. We are happy to learn that he is recovering. A Woman Run Over.-An accident of a serious nature oecurred [occurred] on Monday last, at Townend, to a woman nearly eighty years of age, named Mary Hydes, of Penshills, [Pensions] It appears that a young man, named Broadhead, who is in the employ of Messrs. Thorp's, coal merchant, had been with a load of coals to Town- [Townend] end, when on returning the horse took fright and be- [became] came unmanageable. It reared and kicked furiously. The unfortunate woman had got upon some steps, in order to be out of the way. She was knocked down by the infuriated animal, and the cart passed over her body and broke her collar bone, and inflicted other serious injuries upon her. She is now lying in a very alarming state. CasvaLty.-An [Casualty.-An] elderly woman, named Ann Ogley, was dreadfully scalded at the Old Mill, on Friday, the 19th inst. She was assisting Mr. Wilson to wash, when on carrying some boiling water up some steps, she unfortunately upset it upon her person. It scalded her so severely about the head, neck, and other parts of her body, that she has since been lying ina very precarious state. THUNDER StorM.-This [Storm.-This] neighbourhood was visited on Thursday last by a terrific thunder storm. About half-past twelve o'clock, after a sultry forenoon, vivid flashes of lightning were observed, which were followed by very loud thunder; but very little rain felt in this town. The dense clouds indicated a different state of things in the direction of Hoyland, Cudworth, and Ardsley, where, it appears, the rain descended in tor- [torrents] rents, and much damage was done both by the water and lightning to the crops; and in Wentworth-park several cows were killed by the lightning. The knife and fork of a woman who was eating her dinner, at Heminfield, [Hem infield] was struck quite out of her hand by the lightning, and she was so alarmed that she fell into a fit, and has continued to have them at intervals since. AccIDENT [Accident] From 4 Horsr.-An [Horse.-An] accident of this nature occurred on Monday evening last, to a man named William Land. It appears that the unfortunate man was riding aspirited [spirited] young animal along. Peel-street, when it became unruly and threw him. We are in- [informed] formed that he was inebriated at the time. One of his arms was broken, and other injuries inflicted. Narrow Escape From Drowninc.-On [Drowning.-On] Monday evening last, as some boys were bathing in the Barnsley canal, near the Cliff-wood, one of them named James Blackshaw, an inexperienced swimmer, so exerted and exhausted himself with playing in the middle of the canal, that he could not reach the shore. He went down twice and must inevitably have perished but for a young man named Joseph Ro who plunged into the water, and with difficulty, ed him from a watery grave. Drunk anD [and] DisorDERLY.-At [Disorderly.-At] the Court-house on Wednesday, William Rogerson was fined 10s. and 9s. 8d. expenses, for creating a disturbance, and challenging passers-by to a fistic [fist] encounter in the public street at midnight on Saturday. The Bench recommended this worshipper, at the shrine of the rosy god, to join the teetotal society, a hint he promised to act upon in future. After remaining in the dock some time to allow his friends to raise the amount, it was found they could not do so, and he was consequently committed for two months to Wakefield House of Correction. On hearing the sentence the prisoner immediately to strip, in order to send his clothes to his amid the laughter of the court, but the Bench ordered win inte [inter] the lock-up in order that he might strip pri- [pro- privy] y. ASSAULTING A FEMALE aT THURGOLAND.-On Wedness [Wednesday] day last, at the Court-house, Joel Dyson was charged by Etty Wagstaffe, of Thurgoland, with having assaulted and struck her on the 18th instant, on the occasion of her going to a neighbouring public-house to fetch home her master, who is father to the defendant. It was proved in evidence that the defendant followed, knocked down, and kicked complainant jn a cowardly manner, and for which he was ordered to pay a fine of 2, and two guineas expenses, Hedon, last, and saw Mr. Parsons, who at first was speeches. We unde [under] first formed in Tarowine [Throwing] WaTeR [Water] rx a May's Face.-On Wednesday, at the Court-house, George Dyson, who figured in the previous case, charged Martha Senior with throwing hot water in his eyes. Mr. Dyson is a farmer at Thurgoland, and on the 18th instant he met his son Jocl [Joel] at Birkenshaw's public-house, in that village, when a quarrel ensued, and the defendant, who lives with, and has had several children by young Joel, took part in the fratch, fetch, and threw the scalding water in the manner above described. She was fined 40s. and 17s. 6d. expenses. EmBezzLEMENT.-At [Embezzlement.-At] the Court House, on Wednesday, William IZardman, [Boardman] a linen weaver, who resides at Ardsley, was arranged before the sitting charged by Mr. George Savage, the Inspector of the Barnsley Linen Manufactures' Protective Association, with embezzling sundry articles, the property of certain manufacturers. Mr. C. J. Mence [Fence] was retained for the association, and Mr. Tyas for the defendant. Mr. Sav [Save] age, arrived with a search warrant, and found in the prisoner's house three picces [pieces] of drill, three pieces of diaper, three pieces of towelling, one hand of five yarn, and four hanks of linen yarn under the bed; together with fifteen sets of recds [reds] and gears. The prisoner at the time ae mitted [fitted] that a portion of the articles belonged to Mr. Craik, in whoes [whose] employ he had formely [formerly] been. Several witnesses were called on both sides, and the bench, after a consultation of ten minutes considered the charge proved, and were about to inflict a penalty of 20, but on Mr. Savage's intercession, the prisoner, who is an old man, was let off on paying the costs, which amounted to 17s. 6d. The case excited considerable interest among a crowd of spectators. SHarton [Wharton] Freast.-The [Feast.-The] rural little village of Shafton, was greatly enlivened on Sunday last, and the two following days, by the celebration of their annual fes- [fe- festival] tival. [vital] In this village, at the feast, there is not those scenes of drunkenness and dissipation, for which many of our village feasts are characterised. SADDLEWORTH. Mecuanics' [Mechanics] Iystirution [Institution] SorreeE.-On [Sore.-On] Tuesday even- [evening] ing the mouthly [monthly] social meeting, in connection with the Mechanics' Institution, was held in the lecture-room, Uppermill. [Upper mill] The audience was not large, and a great drawback to the evening's entertainment was the absence of music. Mr. John Hutchinson, of Woolroad, [Wool road] presided, and read an Essay on Gravitation. Mr. James Platt, of Prospecton, [Prospect] was then called upon, and he made some observations on Poetry and the Laws of Versification, giving many illustrations, from memory, of different sorts of verse. He also, in illustration of his subject, read two poetic effusions of his own, the latter of which was much applauded, and is here given Answer to a song traducing marriage, entitled Bachelors' Fare, which appearcd [appeared] in the New Monthly Mugazine [Magazine] for February, 1823. Frequently whining, always repining, Vex'd and perplex'd at not having a wife; Thinking to marry, deciding to tarry, So pass the days of a bachelor's life. His mind ever ranging, inconstant and changing, So fraught with anxiety, trouble and care ; And fed with vain wishes; poor pitiful dishes But most that's delicious in bachelor's fare. How cheerless and lonely is he that has only Himself to take thought for, himself to maintain ; Not one to regale him when sorrows assail him, And none to bewail him in sickness and pain Tho' marriage brings trouble its comforts are double, As all happy husbands can truly declare, To all that the single state ever did arrozate; [arrest] Hence do we reprobate bachelor's fare. Who call women evils, new, old, or blue devils, Convince me thoy're [tho're] acting the comic part o'er, Of the fox in the fable, which not being able To pluck and tosuck [suck] the sweet grapes-calls them sour To love a sweet creature with grace in each feature, Not even a bachelor's self can forbear ; But such to neglect, and feign to reject, Those fools may expect that wants bachelor's fare. It can't be denied that sometimes wives will chide, As they ought when they see there's occasion ; And thosethat [those that] do blamethem [blame them] for this, anddefame [and defame] them, Deserve a severe flagellation. To have an adviser, each day growing wiser, A true bosom friend, is the married man's share ; But though 'tis [is] distressing and spirit depressing, To lack this great blessing is bachelor's fare. Though children are truly too often unruly, And boys may sometimes be too lavish of treasure, Yet few rich or poor, ever lived I am sure, That did not afford to their parents much pleasure. If all men of this, and of all other bliss That wedlock contains, were but fully aware ; Not one in a score, the nation all o'er, Would wish any more to have bachelor's fare. Mr. RaLpH [Ralph] RHODEs [Rhodes] was then called on, and read a piece of poetry, from a little book, which he truly desig- [design- designated] nated [Anted] simple, about the death and burial of a Robin Redbreast. Mr. L. Puatr [Part] then introduced the subject of the Great Exhibition of 1851, [W, having been requested to do so by the local committee of this district. After giving a brief description of the contemplated Exhibi- [Exhibit- Exhibition] tion, [ion] he asked if the working people were desirous to visit it, and organise themsel es [themselves es] for the purpose of going in parties, by means of which money and time might both be economized -A conversation ensued, and a fair number of those present expressed their intention of going to the Exhibition next year, and their willingness to join any organization by means of which their object may be more economically effected. The Rev. S. Dyson was nominated chairman of the next meeting, after which the assembly separated about 10 Soctrery [Secretary] ANNIVERSARY.-On Wednesday after- [afternoon] noon, the 30th anniversrry [anniversary] of the Saddleworth Branch Bible Society, was held in the lecture-room of the Mechanics' Institution, Uppermill, [Upper mill] Mr. James Pratt, of Prospecton, [Prospect] in the chair. The meeting, though not large, was respectable, and composed chiefly of ladies. It was ably addressed by the Rev. John Robinson, the Rev. Mr. Grane, Mr. Bourne (of the Parent Society), the Rev. J. Reeve, and the Rev. S. Dyson. At half-past five p.m., the meeting was adjourned till eight o'clock, when it again assembled, and listened to a very ani- [an- animated] mated address from Mr. Reeve, and a very long and in- [interesting] teresting [interesting] one from Mr. Bourne. There has seldom been a bible meeting in Saddleworth so interesting as this; or one at which the speakers so ably and judi- [jude- judiciously] ciously [Sicily] performed the parts allotted to them. WAKEFIELD. BastarDy [Bastardy] APPLICATION aGaInst [against] A RoMAN [Roman] CaTHOLIC [Catholic] PRIEST AND AN ORDER Mapr.-At [Mar.-At] the Court House, on Monday last, before J. Holdsworth, (Mayor), J. F. Carr, Edward Tew, and Thomas Hague, Esgqs., [Esquire] an application was made by Elizabeth Summers, aged 18, against the Rev. Mr. Parsons, the senior Roman catholie [Catholic] priest, of Sheffield, to support a bastard child, born on her body, of which she charged him to be the father. Mr. Hardy, barrister-at-law appeared for Mr. Parsons, who was pre- [present] sent, and the case appeared to excite great interest, The girl stated that she lived with Mr. Parsons, at near Hull, in the capacity of servant, and on his removal to Sheffield, about a year ago, she and another girl accompanied him. When at Hedon she complained of sickness on which Mr. Parsons examined her person, but nothing criminal took place there. At Sheffield he was unwell for some time, but not prevented attending to his duties. She waited on him, and when in his room he took liberties with her, which ended in the birth of a child. The father of the girl was called, and he stated that in consequence of information that his daughter was pregnant, he went to Sheffield in April indignant at the charge, but shortly afterwards he proposed paying 20. This being refused he offered 5 more, and ulti- [ult- ultimately] mately [lately] paid the girl's father 30. Mr. Parsons sug- [su- suggested] gested [rested] that she should go to Manchester or some larce [large] town to be confined. On cross-examination it was stated that the charge had been inquired into by the officers connected with the Romish [Rooms] church who had acquitted Mr. Parsons. A gentleman who lived in the house was called and proved seeing the girl in Mr. Parsons bed-room, at eight o'clock, in the morning. For Mr. Parsons it was contended that the money had been paid under fear The other girl, whose name was Bisson, [Boston] had not been called though she and Elizabeth Summers slept together. And Mr. Parsons called her to prove that he had always conducted himself with propricty. [proprietor] The girl Bisson [Boston] was then examined and stated that Summers was not out of her room at night, at any time above five minutes. On being cross-ex- [examined] amined [mined] she said that Summers had also eharged [charged] her with being in the family way to Mr. Parsons, who being informed of it by the witness, called her into his room, and examined her. Another witness was called who spoke to seeing Summer with a man called Roberts, the butler at thehouse. [the house] of the case, the magistrates retired, and on their return in a few minutes, the Mayor said they were unanimously of opinion that Mr. Parsons was phe [the] father of the child, and made a order for 2s. an week, TRIBUTE OF REsPECT.-On [Respect.-On] Thursday, the 18th inst. some of the principal inhabitants of Horbury assembled at the Fleece Inn, for the purpose of presenting to the township a full length portrait of their leading towns- [townsman] man, Mr. John Race, as a memorial of the meritorious manner in which he has filled various offices in con- [connection] nection [section] with that village. At about four o'clock Mr. Race and his friends partook of an excellent dinner in the large room at the above inn. In consequence of Mr. Thomas Baines's absence, Mr. Lazarus was called to the chair, and Mr. W. Stringer occupied the vice-chair As soon as the dinner was finished, the company was supplied with punch out ofa [of] large silver bowl i following inscri [insecure] iption This [option This] bowl was presen [present] the inhabitants of Horbury, to John Race, for his dis- [distinguished] tinguished [distinguished] services as Constable during the disturbances in the years 1811 and 1812.
