W. Battye and J. against Mr. William Padmore, [Admire] station master of this town, by Joseph Haigh. Mr. Batley, of the firm of od that on Saturday night, the 14th instant, about allege ek, he went to the Huddersfield station to take a ticket for Longwood on arriving there he found a great umber of people waiting in the booking-room, and observed ir Padmore [Admire] conducting himself very roughly to the per- [pegs] gous [goes] present, more particularly towards a Mr. Ram en, was threatening to report him, whereupon the station. master seized Ramsden y the collar, and shook him Haigh then remarked- If I was you, Rams- [Ramsden] den. would report him, when Mr. Padmore [Admire] turned round, and seizing him by the collar, ejected him from the hooking office with great violence. In defence it was replied that on the night in question there was an unusual pressure of persons in the booking-room, and such a degree of confu- [confer- confusion] son and uproar as rendered necessary the interference of the station master, who, in the prosecution of his duty, had endeavoured to quiet the uproar which prevailed 3 and the petter to accomplish this object, had put Haigh out of the office. as he and Ramsden were conducting themselves very improperly. The bench took a short time to consider the case, and expressed their opinion that though there had peen great disturbance, the assault was Proved, and should conseqrently [consequently] inflict a penalty of 2s. 6d. with expenses. Mr. Battre [Batter] intimated to Mr. Padmore [Admire] that in the event of the recurrence of such proceedings he had better take the arties [parties] into custody, and bring them before the magistrates for interfering with the railway officers in the discharge of their duty. Mr. Padmore [Admire] thanked their worships, and aitimated [estimated] that he should take care to adopt such a course i ure. [re] a CaREFUL [Careful] IN TreaTING [Treating] Your Mr. Thomo [Them] Bulderson, [Builders] of the Clothier's Arms, Old-street, ap- [pared] red before Joseph Brook and George Armitage, Esqs., [Esq] at the Guildhall, last Saturday, to answer a charge pre- [preferred] ferred [erred] by night watchman Graham, of filling beer durin [during] church hours. On Sunday afternoon, between three an four o'clock, Mr. Balderson had some friends from the country called to see him, and after entering into conversa- [conversation- conversation] tion, [ion] aud [and] discussing the necessary requirements for good gle, [ge] onc [on] of the company, a lady, intimated that she had never tasted bitter ale. Mrs. Balderson, with the acknow- [acne- acknowledged] ledged [ledge] hospitality of the hostess, immediately proceeded to draw a ylass [class] of this beverage, and was returning to the room, then policeman Graham and a companion made their cxtree. [extreme] Of course, Mrs. Balderson felt rather discon- [discount- disconcerted] certed [carted] at first sight, but immediately rallied again and said, Ah, you have caught me at last, you see -at the same tie taking a draft from one of the two glasses she held iu her hand. The policeman thought this was a ruse, and buins [bins] determined not to be so easily done, took out a summu.s [sum.s] against mine host for the offence. The case was treated leniently, and discharged on payment of expenses. Attempt TO REcovER [Recover] A YEar's [Year's] Rent.-Mar- [Marshall] suaLl. [small] Hanson.-This case was heard at the County Court on Thursday last; Mr. William Haich, [Haigh] solicitor, defended. The plaintiff sought to recover the sum of 7 1is.. [is] being a half-vear's rent of a house at Paddock, lately occupied by the defendant Possession was taken on the 28th of August, 1848, so that the year terminated on the 25th of August. In the February of the present year, the defeudant, [defendant] Mr. Benjamin Hanson, expressed his desire to lexve [leave] the house, and an alleged agreement was entered into that on his delivering up the key, and paying the rent up to the 28th of May, he should be at liberty. The key was accordingly delivered in May, and Mr. Hanson pre- [presumed] sumed [sued] that he was liable to no further claim than the quarter's rent then due, which had now been paid into court. The plaintiff, Mr. Joseph Marshall. Paddock, denied that any agreement had been made of this nature. Mr. George Haigh was called as a witness for the defence, and proved that such an understanding existed between the parties in the early part of May. The judge entered a hon-suit without costs. ANoTHER [Another] Cow CaSE.-Browy [Case.-Brow] v. STANCLIFFE.-In the November of last year, Mr. Charles Stancliffe, of Kirkhea- [Kirkheaton- Kirkheaton] ton, had in his possession a cow which Mr. James Brown wishel [wishes] te purchase or barter for the exchange of another, After repeated meetings a bargain was struck fora swap, Brown yiving [giving] two guineas to boot. During the con- [conversations] versations [conversation] which ensued upon the subject, an impression was created that the cow would calve in January, but sub- [subsequent] sequent inquiry proved this to be a mistake, and an intima- [India- intimation] tion [ion] to that effect was made to Brown before the bargain was fiually [finally] closed. The cow did not calve until March, and Brown considering himself wronged in the transaction, appeared at the County Court last Thursday, seeking to recover the value of the cow, under the plea that she had cu weranteed [warranted] to calve in January. Mr. J. I. Freeman defer ded. [defer de] evidence was examined, and his Honour con- [considered] sideriny [stirring] that there was no proof to rebut the assertion of the defendant, that the mistake was corrected before the exchange took place, nonsuited [non suited] the plaintiff. SUMMONS FOR A AaGES.-On [Ages.-On] Saturday, William Rigg appeared before Joseph Brook and George Armitage, Esq., at the Guildhall, to summon his employer, Ben- [Barnum] Mui [Mi] Turner, jomer [homer] and cabinet-maker, Chapel-hill, for hou-payiment [hour-Parliament] of wages, amounting to 2 4s. 6d. This Was a residue of wages, paid at various times for work one, and was a disputed item, the defendant alleging that the special article (a loo table top) on which the com- [complainant] claimed this sum had been nearly spoiled, and Jeft [Left] in un state, aud [and] consequently did not deserve the slightest remuneration for the labour bestowed upon it. No one had been called in by either party to give an opinion to whether either the statement ot the complainant or the defendant was true, so that the only valuations ten- [tendered] dered [deed] 'ere those of the respective parties, which differed owilely vilely] that each made out a claim against the other. After Some conversation with the bench, it was mutually 'ranged that the matter in dispute should be referred to ont inpartial [impartial] party, and its decisions accepted as final. SELLING WHaT [What] ANOTHER HAS PURCHASED.-EASTWOOD 'XD Woop [Wool] v. Carter.-The in this case are tiuber [timber] merchants, residing at Huddersfield and Honley, and were claiming at the County Court on Thursday the Sum of 3 5s. 3d., balance of accounts, arising out of trans- [translations] tious [Titus] with the defendant, Mr. John Carter, Highburton. 7 I847 [I] the defendant purchased of the plaintiffs certain m trees which were properly marked, but a day or two erwards [afterwards] one of the trees alleged by Mr. Carter to be the tofthe together] lot, was re-sold to a Mr. Robert Kaye, without defendant's consent. It was stated thatin [that in] consequence sale other trees were taken by Mr. Carter, as an equivalent, This statement was denied, and as no proof 7S tendered in its support, his Honour only gave a verdict or the Plaintiff for two guineas.

Deceased was a bachelor, of eccentric and intemperate habits, whose house- [household] old consisted only of himself and a housekeeper.

Trade having been brisk and flourishing for the last year and a half, the operatives were in a condition to obtain the creature- [creature comforts] comforts, and of course eagerly availed themselves of the opportunity. Beef smoked luxuriantly on the hospitable board-the nut-brown ale, too, was there -sladsome [handsome] smiles and cordial greetings welcomed the annual visitors, relatives, and friends-and all has been Joy, reciprocal good-will, and harmony, amongst both entertainers and the entertained. The feast commenced on Sunday last, and ends to-day. A Goop Causr.-A [Cause.-A] tea party got up by an influential lodge of Odd Fellows (Manchester Unity), took place at the Royal Oak Inn, Thong's Bridge, on Wednesday even- [evening] ing last. Some 150 individuals partook of the repast, which was of very superior description. The proceeds of the evening were devoted to the Widows and Or- [Orphans] phans [plans] Fund (a most excellent provision) connected with the society. After tea some good speeches were delivered, by Mr. C. Wright, from the Huddersfield district Mr. Whitely, and others. The advantages of Oddfellowship [Odd fellowship] were eloquently advocated by the various speakers; and the whole proceedings were ably con- [conducted] ducted by the well-selected chairman, Mr. J. oseph [Joseph] Mellor, of Thong's Bridge. An excellent quadrille band con- [considerably] siderably [considerably] enhanced the evening's enjoyment; and a party of glee singers from Netherthong also contributed highly to the festive scene.

[Supplies] The quarterly meeting of the Wesleyan officials of this circuit was held in the chapel at Nether- [Netherthong] thong, on Wednesday, the 25th instant, and was nume- [name- numerously] rously [rosy] attended. On these occasions the preachers' salaries and other circuit expenses are usually paid, and the general business of the circuit transacted. i meeting was rendered more than ordinarily interesting by an attempt having been made in some parts of the circuit to stop the supplies, a measure recommended by the delegate meeting till the required concessions are made, and which it appeared had operated to a con- [considerable] siderable [considerable] extent, several chapels bringing less than half their usual quota-and the general receipts, after dis- [discharging] charging rents, childrens' [children] fund, &e., only leaving some six or seven pounds towards the preachers' salaries, although the number of preachers had been reduced at the last Conference from three to two. On this being announced to the meeting, the superintendent remarked to his colleague that it appeared they must live by faith the coming quarter Nothing was said as to any measures to be taken for arresting the stop- [stoppage] page movement, or what should be done with the parties, but one of the stewards intimated that the con- [contributions] tributions [contributions] were likely to be still further reduced next quarter. Finance matters being gone through, the superintendent said that his course was clear, being prescribed by the minutes, i. those of the late Conference. The meeting not seeming to know what the reverend gentleman referred to, and it appearing that a very small proportion had seen those minutes, it was urged that they ought to be read, to which the chairman assented. This was done by his colleague, under an emotion that implied that it contained some. thing very repulsive. As soon as done a local preacher remarked That is not in accordance with John Wes- [West- Wesley] ley's writings. The chairman replied, What part of his writings The brother answered, his Sermon on Judging Others. The chairman then said, I have not got that with me. The brother answered, But I have, and I beg to move that the minute just read shall not be considered law in this district for the present year. This was instantly seconded by another local preacher, but, the chairman, to avoid putting it, immediately gave out, Praise God from whom all blessing flow. The mecting, [meeting] however, would not be balked; a steward ex- [exclaimed] claimed, Stop stop a pause ensued, when he added, The motion which you have heard is moved and seconded as many of you as approve of it signify the same by holding up your hand.

THE CornER [Corner] Group Nuisance-A short time ago we drew attention to this subject in a police report of a case brought under the attention of the Huddersfield magistrates, and we regret to find that the caution then given has not been productive of the desired results. On Tuesday last Mr. D. Sugden again appeared at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, before W. W. Battye and Jos. Starkey, Esqs., [Esq] to prefer a charge of obstruction to the public thoroughfare, against a number of young boys, named Joseph Crowther, John Farrand, Allen Dearnley, Thomas Crowther, Frank Mdlor, [Madly] John Lodge, William Haigh, and Joseph Armitage. Mr. Dransfield appeared for the complainant, and Mr. J. I. Freeman for the de- [defendant] fendant. [defendant] From the evidence of Mr. Sugden it.appeared that on the 15th of Sept. a number of boys were con- [congregated] gregated [created] in front of his house, creating great annoyance, -he went out and took their names, and obtained sum- [summonses] monses [Moses] against the parties named above. Without going into further evidence, Mr. Freeman offered to pay the expenses, and Mr. Sugden having no desire to press the case the offer was accepted, and a reprimand adminis- [admin- administered] tered [teed] from the bench. There is an impression that standing at corners, as is customary in many country villages, is perfectly legal, and that no one can compel them to disperse. Such an idea is quite erroneous-all groups on public thoroughfares, which obstruct the free passage of travellers, are illegal and punishable offences. We have reason to believe that there is no desire on the part of Mr. Sugden to become obnoxious, by proceeding to extreme lengths, and we trust that the habitants will not place themselves in a position which will even allow of their being summoned before a bench of magistrates. Such proceedings invariably engender ill feeling, and if possible should always be avoided. MELTHAM. Tue Resvts [Rests] oF THE Feast.-On the whole the fes- [fe- festivities] tivities [festivities] of this district appear to have passed off with little disturbance or unpleasantness to the public individually or collectively. There have, however, been one or two exceptions to this state of things-and, on last Tuesday, William Earnshaw appeared at the Guildhall, Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field, preferring a charge against David Moorhouse, inas- [ins- inasmuch] much as the defendant had committed certain damage on the plaintiff's hat and coat, to the extent of 7s. 6d. From the evidence adduced, the defendant in company with a person of the name of Jonas Eastwood had, un- [unprovoked] provoked, assaulted the complainant, on the 8th inst., kicked his hat into the air, and tore his cout. [court] The charge was denied. A witness was examined as to the amount of damage, which was estimated at 2s. 6d. for the coat, and 2s. 6d. for the hat. The bench ordered 5s. to be paid with expenses.-An assault, arising out of the same case, was preferred by the complainant against Jonas Eastwood. Fined 1s. and expenses, MARSDEN. Autumn Farr.-This fair was held on Wednesday last. The day was very fine, and Marsden presented a very busy and animated appearance. The show of horned cattle and sheep was more than usually large. To a stranger it must have appeared surprising that so small a place should be the centre of such a gathering. Early in the morning, from all quarters, every road was thronged with cattle and cattle-dealers. For two or three hours these arrivals continued, until every avail- [available] able portion of ground in the village and its neighbour- [neighbourhood] hood was covered. A large amount of business appeared to be transacted, though, as is habitual, sellers com- [complained] plained of low prices, and buyers talked of unreasonable demands. Business over, the pleasure-seekers had next their turn; the streets were lined with stalls, and ap- [appeared] peared [pared] to be well patyonised. [patronised] H Beth HE TEMPERANCE CavsE [Case] AT RowLey [Rowley] Hiti.-By [Hit.-By] the instrumentality of a number of the advocates of the temperance cause in Huddersfield and neighbourhood, a band. of hope has been called into existence at Rowley- [Rowley] Hill, who have met in the open air for some weeks past, but latterly, through the liberality and zealous co-opera- [operation] tion [ion] of the villagers, who are principally fancy weavers, a commodious room has been secured, in which to hold these meetings in future. In connection with this move- [movement] ment [men] a Mutual Improvement Society has been formed, for both sexes, which already embraces eighty members. This room was opened on Monday evening last, when upwards of 200 partook of tea, the trays for which were liberally supplied by the females of the village and neighbourhood, by which means a sum of upwards of 4 was realized. [realised] 'After the repast a number of speeches were delivered, and a variety of songs, glees, and recite tions [tins] added to the pleasure of the assembly. The Kirk burton [Burton] brass band was also in attendance, and perform several popular pieces of music. Conviction, On Tuesday last, at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, Mr. Superintendent Heaton preferred a charge against John Heywood, for keeping his house open during the hours of afternoon divine service. It appears that on the 15th instant, Mr. Heaton, whilst passing through Kirkburton, had his suspicions raised that all was not right at the defen- [defend- defendant] dant's, [dan's, 's] and on going up to the house, he heard voices, which induced him to claim admittance. He knocked at the door, and some one came to enquire who he was; after reporting himself, he heard the footsteps return- [return] ing, and almost immediately some one appeared to be passing from the bar up stairs, in tence [thence] of which he leaped the garden wall, and went in at the back door. On obtaining found in the bar, but on searching up stairs he found three persons ensconced under the bed in one of the chambers. The worthy host pleaded that he himself were travellers, on learning who was to be their visitor, ran up stairs in a great fright. The bench, considering it an aggravated case, inflicted the penalty of 20s [S's and costs. DistuRBING [Disturbing] THE PUBLIC Policeman Glover appeared before the Huddersfield magistrates as complainant against William Gill and Henry Fitten, [Fitton] for being drunk and disorderly on the 15th instant, and against Joshua Senior for committing a similar offence on the 8th instant. The defendants all denied the charge, and hinted that Glover had a little spite against them. Fitten [Fitton] was discharged, and the other two were ordered to pay expenses. Inquest on WILLIAM MarspEN.-We [Marsden.-We] had occasion a fortnight ago to refer to the mysterious disap [dis] ce of this young man, and we now regret to state that the suspicions then entertained have proved true. The most persevering exertions were for several days em- [employed] ployed [played] to ascertain whether he had committed suicide, but all proved futile until the afternoon of Friday week, when the body was found floating on of the extensive reservoirs in the neighbourhood. On being taken out of ihe [the] water, the face and other parts of the body were very much discoloured. An inquest was held on the remains on the Saturda [Saturday] at the house of the father, The Brown Cow, before Mr. Gledhill, deputy coroner, when a verdict was returned of Found drowned without any marks of violence. WAKEFIELD. THE GRAND REGATTA. Thursday was regarded by a great majority of shop- [shopkeepers] keepers and offices in this town as a general holiday ; business was for the most part suspended, the streets appeared quite deserted throughout the day, and the in habitants, with their numerous friends and visitors from ihe [the] country, flocked to witness the first regatta which has been held in Wakpfield, [Wakefield] within our memory. The morning was ushered im [in] by the merry peals of the bells of the Parish Church, from the battlements of which venerable pile, as well as from the house tops in various parts of the town, was suspended our national flag, in honour of the permanent establishment of an annual regatta in our ancient town. The weather, up to four o'clock, was very propitious; but at that hour we were visited by a sharp shower of rain, although, fortunately, it was not of long continuance, and not sufficiently heavy. to disperse the immense number of spectators who had congregated on the banks of the river to witness the exciting sports of the day. The regatta was under the distinguished patronage of the Earl of Carlisle, G. Sandars, [Sanders] Esq., M.P.; the Mayor of the Borough; J. G. Smith, Esq., M.P.; R. Cobden, Esq., M.P.; and B. Gaskell and T. H. Marshall, Esqrs. [Esquires] The stewards, to whom too much praise cannot be given, and by whose judicious management the festival was conducted without the slightest confusion or interrup- [interred- interruption] tion, [ion] were Messrs. N. L. Fernandes, H. A. J ulius, [Julius] Chas. Berners, Henry Gray, R. J. Harrison, C. Hicks, T. Holdsworth, G. H. Roberts, E. W. Shaw, and R. Winter. The prizes were open to all England, and some of the crack crews from Manchester, Worcester, Chester, and other towns, were amongst the competitors. The cups were supplied by Mr. Loveday, silversmith, and were the theme of general admiration. The races were nine 15 and the amount given in prizes was nearly THE 1, A Boat Racr.-Sea [Race.-Sea] Serpent crew, H. A. Julius, R. J. Harrison, C. Berners, W. larkson [Clarkson] coxswain, E. W.

[neighbourhood] The usual toasts were given, and the entertainment was interspersed with several excellent songs, and Pritchard's band played some popular airs. The joyous party did not separate until an advanced hour of the night. Marimine [Marine] a Horse at youth, named William Morris, was brought up on Monday, before T. H. Marshall, Esq., charged with having pulled the tongue out of the mouth of a galloway, [Galloway] the property of Mr. Benjamin Burnley. The lad was employed in a pit there, to drive the horse, but the animal having by some means irritated him, he tore out its tongue, which so injured the poor creature that it was found necessary to kill it the day following, in order to put it out of its intense suffering. Mr. Cuthbert, veterinary surgeon, gave evidence as to the extent of the injuries, and the lad was fully committed to take his trial at the next sessions. lh - LANCASHIRE AND YORKSHIRE RatLway.-We [Railway.-We] under- [understand] stand that the Board of Directors in this company have de- [declined] elined [lined] to grant a free pass on the line to the shareholders, on the occasion of the approaching special meeting in Man- [Manchester] chester, on the 2nd of October next, when the constitution of the future board will be the subject of discussion. Not- [Notwithstanding] withstanding this decision, we hope that the proprietors in this district will make a point of being present, in order that the agreements made with the Yorkshire companies on this question, prior to their amalgamation with the Lancashire and Yorkshire company, may be fairly and honourably carried out. RHUDDLAN Royal EIstEDDVoD.-This [Eisteddfod.-This] long talked of festival commenced on Tuesday, in the court-yard of Rhuddlan Castle, which has been specially fitted up for the occasion. Lord Mostyn was unanimously chosen president of the Eisteddvod, [Eisteddfod] and in his opening address strongly advocated the maintenance of the Welsh language. The bards were then called upon, and recited their poetical addresses in Welsh. The meeting was afterwards addressed in an eloquent manner (in English) by John Jones, Esq., (the bard Talhaiarn.) The oo dwelt upon the histo- [host- historical] rical [rival] events applying to the Welsh nation in a strain of the most fervid eloquence. The Very Rev. the Dean of Ban- [Bangor] gor [for] next addressed the Histeddvod, [Eisteddfod] and was loudly applauded. The Rev. T. T. Edwards then read a special communication. The successful candidate for the grand rize [prize] was then inducted into the bardic chair by two gra- [ga- granted] bards. Rhuddlan is all life and gaiety. ALARMING ACCIDENT AT THE RHUDDLAN EISTEDDVOD. [EISTEDDFOD] - The Liverpool Mercury, of yesterday, gives the following communication from a correspondent, dated Rhuddlan Castle, Thursday Afternoon -A most unfortunate acci- [acct- accident] dent has just happened within the great hall at the eastle, [Castle] which has thrown all parties here into the greatest possible confusion, and which, it is feared, may have the effect of abruptly putting an end to the fes- [fe- festival] tival [vital] altogether. Behind a platform at the west end of the hall, raised about a yard and a half from the ground floor, and on which the president was at the time sitting, were several rows of seats elevated still higher than the presi- [press- president] dent's platform, and forming a kind of gallery. About the time alluded to, these seats were much crowded with ladies and gentlemen, and the harpists were contesting for one of the prizes, when the entire audience, consisting of some thousands, were suddenly alarmed by a loud crash which proceeded from the neighbourhood of the platform alluded to. There were instantaneous cries of The building is falling in, and a frightful rush was made to the different doors. In a few moments after the crash was heard the platform fell in at the middle part, one of the midway sup- [supporters] porters having given way. The screams of the ladies, who were now huddled together and sliding down from each end of the platform into the centre below, were piteous in the extreme, and a scene of consternation and confusion, such as is seldom witnessed in a public as- [assembly] sembly [assembly] was the consequence. The president's platform in a few moments afterwards gave way, fell in, and, of course, earried [carried] the chair along with it; but the venerable noble- [nobleman] man had vacated his seat the moment the alarm was given, and fortunately was out of di r. As soon as the audience had their presence of mind in some measure re- [restored] stored, and it was ascertained that there was no danger to any p&rt of the building except the platforms in question, the attention of the gentlemen was directed to the extrica- [extra- extrication] tion [ion] of the ladies and others from their perilous position. Fortunately, few, comparatively speaking, were found to have been injured. Amongst them, we regret to find, is Mrs. Thompson, daughter of Mr. Fletcher, of Liverpool, who has had her leg broken, and received other severe fractures. Mrs. Dawson, of Gwnant, [Tenant] and several others are injured but, in the intense confusion which prevails, it is impossible to ascertain the exact pardonlars. [pardons] Imme- [Mme- Immediately] diately [lately] after all the injured parties had been carefully con- [conveyed] veyed [eyed] away, and medical attendance procured, the hall was cleared, and a special committee meeting called to de- [deliberate] liberate what was to be done. After sitting for about an hour, an announcement was issued that the concert an- [announced] nounced [announced] for this evening would take place, but fears are entertained that the great bulk of those who would other- [otherwise] wise have been present will be deterred from going either to the concert or the oratorio te it is said the accident arose in consequence of the upright supports, which were too short, being woes fitted vith [with] wedges.

The Queen held a Privy Council on Tuesday, the 24th instant, at Balmoral. It was attended by his Royal High- [Highness] ness Prince Albert, Lord John Russell, First Lord of the Treasury, the Right Hon. Sir Franc's Baring, First Lord of the Admiralty, and the Right Hon. Fox Maule, Secretary- [Secretary] at-War. [War] At the Privy Council Parliament was ordered to be further prorogued from Tuesday, the 15th of October, until Thursday, the 14th of November. The Hon. Wm. Bathurst was the Clerk of the Council in Waiting. REPRESENTATION OF CaSHEL.-At [Cash.-At] rather a short notice (says the Clonmel Chronicle) a meeting of the constituency of Cashel took place, a little after two o'clock on last Sun- [Sunday] day, in the Town-hall, for the purpose of adopting a requi- [require- requisition] sition [sit ion] to Sir Timothy O'Brien to retire from parliament as their representative, as they are convinced of his utter in- [inefficiency] efficiency, and consequent ineligibility, to represent them.

THE Law APPOINTMENTS.- [APPOINTMENTS] It is at length officially announced that Mr. Monahan [Monarch] is appointed Chief-Justice of the Common Pleas; Mr. John Hatchell, [Hatch ell] M.P., succeeding to the post of first law officer. The other legal arrange- [arrangements] ments [rents] are still as much a mystery as the whereabouts of the American sea-serpent. The Evening Post hints that Mr. Vincent Scully, Q.C., is added to the list. of favourites for promotion. The learned gentleman is said to be a man thoroughly versed in the practical details of landed affairs. Latest INTELLIGENCE OF HayNavU. [Hanover] A letter from Prague of the 17th says- The general arrived here last night, and this morning was seen walking on the prome- [prime- prime] e, in plain clothes, and accompanied by an officer. He has the air of a dejected and desponding [responding] man. The treatment he experienced in London and Hanover, coming so suddenly upon his contemptuous dismissal by the master for whom he braved the censure of the world and of his own heart, has made a deep and melancholy impression upon the old man. He is about leaving for Gratz, [Grate] where his family is residing. REPRESENTATION OF HEREFORDSHIRE.-Never, perbaps, [perhaps] did a county election excite so little local stir as the pend- [pending] ing election for Herefordshire. Although the notice of the issue of the writ has been issued, there is nothing like a movement among the electors, and it seems to be generally conceded that Mtr. [Mr] Booker is to go quietly to the poll alone. There is no doubt, however, that the speaking at the nomination will not be all on one side, whatever the issue may be. Mr. Booker has as yet attended no public meeting of electors, but has issued a second address, in which he thanks the electors for the kindness with which I have been received during the progress which I am now making throughout the county. He gives no hint, however, as to the result of his canvass. -Times of yesterday. THE Fiyinc [Finch] DutcHMAN.-This [Dutchman.-This] famous racer has been sold to four noblemen by the Earl of Eglinton for 7,000. He is not intended for the turf again, and will only be kept for breeding purposes. The Flying Dutchman has won fourteen races never having been beaten till Friday week for the Doncaster Cup, by the Earl of Zetland's Vol- [Voltaic] tigeur, [tiger] an event attributable, perhaps, to the great weights the favourite was compelled from his age to carry-namely, 19Ib [ob] more than Voltigeur. [Voltaic] The Dutchman has realised the sum of 17,725 altegether [together] for his late noble proprietor, exclusive of plate, cups, and other trophies of the race- [racecourse] course. SERIOUS CHARGE.-At the Southwark Police Court, on Tuesday, Daniel H. ington, [Kington] a young man working in tanyard at Bagmon [Bacon] was placed at the bar, with his . face frightfully dis SOas [Seas] to render it almost impos- [impose- impossible] sible to distinguish a single feature, charged 'with com- [committing] .Initting [Knitting] a rape on Emma O'Donnel, a child between seven 'and eight years of age, the Ganghster [Canister] of a man in the same employment. The prisoner lodged with the father of the and slept in the same room. Being alone with the 'child the offence was committed.. The father, on returning home, dragged the prisoner out of bed, and inflicted such chastisement upon him, in the height of his passion, as to render it a matter of difficulty to distinguish a feature in the countenance after it was over. The prisoner was committed on the capital charge. . THE LIVERPOOL CaR [CARE] FaRES.-The [Fares.-The] deliberations of the car committee, and the conferences with the car-owners, are likely to result in the establishment of a half mile six- [sixpenny] penny fare. The basis of the arrangement proposed we understand to be as follows -A charge of one shilling per mile, and sixpence for the half mile the first sixpenny fare only to include the conveyance of two passengers, and a small quantity of luggage the subsequent fares to allow four passengers, without extra charge for the fowth, [forth] as heretofore. The number of drivers will be limited, and 'offences will be punished by a suspension of the license. Each driver will be provided with a ticket, on which will engraved the number of the car, and this ticket will be handed to the passenger as he enters the car. The com- [committee] mittee [matter] have also stipulated that lamps shall be used in the evenings.- [evenings] Liverpool Mercury. THE PooLeE [Poole] ELEcTION.-The [Election.-The] nomination of candidates for the representation of the borough of Poole took place on Monday. At one time, five or six candidates had been before the electors but previously to the nomination, all had withdrawn their pretensions except two, Mr. Seymour (free trader) and Mr. vage [gave] (protectionist). The proceed- [proceedings] ings on Monday were marked by very disgraceful violence. The leaders on the hustings were pelted with rotten eggs, vegetables, and stones, and covered with large quantities of flour, which some one managed to discharge upon them. Several fights took place, in which many persons were injured, and among them Mr. Seymour's steward, who, it is believed, had his ribs broken. After a scene of the wildest confusion, in the midst of which both candidates attempted to address the meeting, of hands was taken, and declared to be in favour of Mr. Seymour. The poll was fixed for Tuesday, and resulted in the return of the free trader by a majority of 21; the numbers being Seymour 188, Savage, 167. LANCASHIRE AND YORKSHIRE RAILWAY.-The committee appointed at the last meeting of this company to consider the future composition of the board of directors, and to recommend to a special general meeting of the company, to be held on the 2nd of October next, such gentlemen as they deemed suitable for the directory, have decided upon recommending twenty-four gentlemen, of whom ten are members of the present board, a like number of new mem- [men- members] bers [bees] to supply the place of the retiring directors, and four directors agreement for guaranteed and leased lines. The ten old directors to remain in the direction are- [Messrs] Messrs. H. Houldsworth, 8. Brooks, G. Wilson, R. Gill, E. Harper, W. Marshall, W. Stewart, H. Wickham, W. Rand, and C. H. Jones. The directors by agreement for guaran- [guardian- guaranteed] teed and leased lines are-Messrs. J. Andus, [Andes] J. Beaumont, J. Radcliffe, and W. Hornby. The proposed new directors to supply the places of those who retire are-Messrs. W. Rawson, J. Brogden, and W. Evans, of Manchester; M. F. Mowatt, [Matt] M.P., London, and J. Mellor, of Liverpool; Mr. J. Botterill, of Leeds; Mr. T Barnes, of Bolton; Mr. J. Thornton, of Wakefield; Mr. Hargreaves, jun., ot South- [Southport] port; and Mr. 8. Fielden, of Todmorden. ASSASSINATION OF AN IRISH MAGISTRATE.-The Frree- [Free- Freeman] man's Journal correspondent, dating from Kilbegegan, [Clergyman] county of Meath, on Tuesday, conveys the intelligence of the following murderous outrage -I hasten to commu- [com- communicate] nicate [indicate] briefly the particulars of a most dreadful murder that was committed on the borders of this county, adjoining the King's, at a place called Rathue, [Rather] situated about five miles from this town, in a peaceable part of the country, on yesterday afternoon (Monday), between the hours of four and five o'ciock [o'clock] in the moon (occurring on a public road leading trom [from] this to Philipstown [Philips] and Edenderry). The gentleman that fell a victim to the assassin was Mr. Roger North, of Kilduff-house, [Cliff-house] King's County, a magis- [magic- magistrate] trate [rate] and landlord in the said county. He was shot dead, within one mile of his house, as he was proceeding home on his return from some cattle, one or two of which were sick, on a farm of his nearly two miles from his residence. Mr. Pilkington, J P., Toar [Tor] Lodge, Tyrrell's-pass, having paid him a visit on said day as he was goirg [going] home, gave Mr. North a seat on his car as far assaid [said] farm. Hethen [Then] parted with him, being old and intimate friends. Mr. North remained about an hour at the farm he then proceeded homewards to Kildux, [Killed] walking on foot unaccompanied by any 7 person ,When he got about one-fourth of a mile beyond Mr. Arthur Judge's, of Rathue, [Rather] on a loansome [loans] part of the road, near three farm-houses, and where several persons were working in the fields, it is supposed that the assassin laid wait for him behind the hedge and fired at him, the shot taking effect in his side and back over the region of his heart and chest. A large number of slugs and pellets with which the piece was loaded went through the body. The fire-arm must have been extra weightily loaded, and the unfortunate deceased near to the shot that was fired. From all the wounds he received he must have died instantly. He was discovered dead on the road immediately afterwards. Sub-inspector Sheil, [Sheik] with a party of police from this town, proceeded early this morning to the place, and arrested several persons on suspicion. Every means are being taken by the autho- [author- authorities] rities [cities] to get or discover the person or persons who com- [committed] mitted [fitted] the dreadful deed. Up to this no clue or discovery has been made of the guilty. It is considered he was murdered. to his having lately used some of his tenants on his Rathue [Rather] property with coercive severity. Such are the rumours here at least, andI [and] give them to you as they reached me. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1850. Alexander Lyons, Who for upwards of a quarter of century was associ [Assoc] with the literary department of the Morning Herald, expired on Tuesday, at his chambers in Clement's Inn, AWKWARD MISTAKE IN CONNECTION witH [with] LorD [Lord] Cow- [Rowley] LEY.-On [On] the 20th instant, when Lord Cowley, the British Plenipotentiary, was ente [enter Frankfort, on his return from Wilhelmshad, [Wilhelmina] it so happened that he was accompanied by a Hessian officer on horseback, who rode at the side of his lordship's carriage. This circumstance caused him to be mistaken for the Elector, and a crowd of people, surround- [surrounding] ing his carriage, addressed his lordship with the most insulting and abusive epithets, shouting, 'Take the dog out ick [sick] him down Knock him on the head But no act of violence of the kind was committed, and the identity of the British Ambassador being established, Lord Cowley was allowed to depart amidst the violent cheers of the crowd. How PuBLic [Public] OPINION WILL OPERATE.-The Rector of Ackworth, about whom so much has been written, last week admitted the remains of a child belonging to Mr. John Rishworth, into the church (although the deceased had only been baptised by a Wesleyan minister), and per- [performed] formed all the rites of Christian burial over it. He first refused the application as to taking the body into the church, but when the funeral procession arrived, the doors were thrown open, to the astonishment of every one but the rector. if he had done this some years ago, he would now have had many friends where he has few. STEEPLECHASE IN FRANCE.-There was a steeplechaso [Steeplechase] on Sunday in the Park of Rambouillet [rebuilt] fora silver eup, [up] value 500 francs. It was in heats the distance was about 1,800 yards, and there were five hedges, two walls four feet high, a brook two yards deep and three yards wide, preceded by a hedge, to leap. The horses which started were M. Moise's [Noise's] Culverthorp, [Calvert] the same with which, in 1846, Captain Peel won the steeplechase at Berney; [Berne] M. Tony Montel's [Monte's] Peter Simple, M. Quiclet's [Quickest's] Constantine, and Count de Montgomery's Blue Stocking. The last mentioned won the first heat, the second was won by Culverthorp, [Calvert] the third by Peter Simple. A fourth heat was then run between Cul- [Calvert] verthorp [thorpe] and Peter Simple, and the former won by half a length. Blue Stocking was not allowed to take part in the last heat, in consequence of having been distanced in the second. Two accidents occurred in the second heat Blue Stocking threw the jockey in a wall, but fortunately without hurting him in the third Constantine, in going over a hedge, had his foot caught, and fell heavily with his jockey; the latter fainted, and it was thought was killed, but after about a quarter of an hour he recovered. The steeplechase collected a great crowd, and excited great interest. THE RoyaL [Royal] Famity.-The [Family.-The] Queen, Prince Albert, and suite, are still at Balmoral, in the ejoyment [enjoyment] of excellent health, and daily take their accustomed exercise in the grounds surrounding the Castle On Sunday, the Rev. Dr, Cumming, of the Scotch National Church, Covent Garden, preached before her Majesty, in the church of Crathie, from Isaiah, 45th chapter, 22nd verse- Look unto me and be ye saved, all ye ends of the earth. There were present in the royal pew her Majesty the Queen, Prince Albert, and the Marchioness of Douro. In the next pew were the Duchess of Kent and other distinguished persons belongi [belong] to the court. In other parts of the church we observed the Chief of Invercauld, [Invalid] Lady Agnes Duff, and others. The preacher divided the religions of mankind into three great categories-the religion of man, the religion of the priest, and the religion of God the Saviour. He enlarged on the last division without notes, and we should suppose he was the first extempore preacher her Majesty ever heard. We understand, from good authority, that the sermon will be submitted to the public, and will thus naturally excite no ordinary interest. It was certainly a most impressive spec- [spectacle] tacle [table] to see the Queen of England, her royal consort, and her august mother, surrounded by Highland peasants, with their plaids and brogues, and Highland women, with their white mutches, [matches] united in worshipping God. The rich and the poor thus meeting together, and listening to a clear and faithful exhibition of the Gospel, as remote from extra- [extravagance] vagance [vacancy] and licenses as it was from Popish and Puseyite [Pursuit] superstition. The Queen was attired with extreme sim- [simplicity] plicity. [publicity] She joined audiby [audit] in singing the Scottish Psalms, and listened with the closest attention to the preacher. CRICKET.

At the conclusion of her rondo in the first act the enthusiasm was such that she was recalled four times consecutively. 'Mlle.

H. finds fault with our strictures on the Disgracefal [Disgraceful] Squibbing System, published in the Chronicle of last week, We do not wish to quarrel with him for so doi [do] He falls into the error of treating Mr. Floyd's letter as an anonymous communication. So far from such bei [be] the case it had that gentleman's name appended, appeared in our columns, not as an article of news, but as an advertisement. With all respect for our corres- [cores- correspondent] pondent, [pendent] we cannot agree with him that a letter beari [bear] the writer's name-and which appeared in our adver- [aver- advertising] tising [rising] columns, could at all warrant any gentleman whe [the] might have been alluded to in that letter in commencing what we do not hesitate to call the Disgraceful Squib- [Squibbing] bing System, even though adroitly introduced by a gentle rebuke, couched in the language of Lawyer Wil kins. [ins. However strong may have been the censure om certain parties contained in Mr. Floyd's letter, it pos- [post- possessed] sessed [ceased] the merit of being openly conveyed, under the signature of the party making it; but the answer to that letter (if answer it can be called) was put forth without the writer's name, and by inference sought to raise a prejudice against us and our journal which was neither manly, honest, or fair. That the writer, whoever he may have been, felt this, is clear from the fact that he did not append his name to his production; and it is this species of guerillo [Grill] warfare, come from what quarter it may, that we condemned in our last, and, if the occasion again arise, shall not scruple to condemn in the future. This jirst [first] anonymous effusion, as might have beea [been] expected, led to others by way of rejoinder; but had this extract from Lawyer Wilkins never have been penned, printed, and published, the subsequent squibs of a like nature could not have made their appearance. It is in this view of the case that we deem the party whe [the] threw the first stone as deserving of greater censure than the writers of those that followed. BIRTH.
