THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SAURDAY, [SATURDAY] SEPTEMBER 28, 1850. FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. AMERICA. 3 ip America, we have etters [letters] and papers fron [from] a to als [as] 11th, and advices [advice] via telegraph from Halifax to the 13th instant inclusive. The Ame- [Me- America] rica's run stands high in the list of Atlantic steam- [steam passages] passages, having from port to port, inclusive of the usual detour to Halifax, only the brief space of 10 days 16 hours and 5 minutes. She brings fifty passengers, specie to the amount of about 43,000 sterling, and the usual mails. Our political accounts by the America are of great interest, announcing the final decision of all the exciting and dangerous questions which have so long engrossed the attention of Congress. Advices by the Atlantic advised us that the House of Representatives had sanctioned the Texan Boundary and Territorial Government of New Mexico Bills. We now learn that on the 7th instant the approval of that body was also extended to the Senate's measures for the admission of California aud [and] the establishment of Utah as a territory- [territory by] by votes, on tie first, of 150 to 56; and, on the second, of 97 to 86. Several attempts were made to attach the Wilmot proviso to the bills, but the house refused to coincide, and the bills passed intact. Our accounts add, that on the 10th instant the Senate admitted into its ranks Messrs. Fremont and Gwinn, the first senators representing the free State of Cali- [California] fornia [fora] in the Central Legislature of the American Federation, and that Congress had decided to adjourn on Monday next, the 30th September. On the 10th instant the President signed the whole of the measures above alluded to. has also ad a iscellaneous [miscellaneous] measures so advance in On the 9th the Senate read a third time a bill giving to the Secretary of the Treasury a digcre- [degree- discretion] tionary [stationary] power to permit vessels from the British orth [North] American provinces to load and unload cargoes in American ports. On the 10th, [the] in the House of Repre- [Prepare- Representatives] sentatives, [representative] a resolution was introduced instructing the Post-office Committee to enquire into the expediency of so amending the contract for carrying mails to Great Britain as to require the steamers employed in the ser- [se- service] vice to stop at the port of Galway, in Ireland, going to and returning from Liverpool. The curious fact may be added, that on the 9th, one of the representatives of New Hampshire resigned his seat to go to the gold es. On the 6th a furious storm of wind and rain was ex- [experienced] perienced [experienced] on Lake Michigan, causing great damage afloat and ashore. Hudson river had also risen. Ship building was very active in all quarters. . Accounts from Nicaragua state that the American, Atlantic, and Pacific Canal Company's steamer Nicaragua had succeeded in ascending the Colorado to within about four miles from San Juan. It was expected she would shortly be enabled to enter Lake Nicaragua. Canada accounts are not of special interest. From Mexico, the West Indies, &., we have no late news. Letters from Valparaiso state that the Reciprocity Bill had become law, and foreign flags were admissible on the same footing as Chili vessels. Mr. Stewart, of Virginia, an earnest protectionist, has accepted the office of secretary of interior, and con- [confirmed] firmed by senate. FRANCE. The Evenement, [Government] of Friday, published a circular letter to the members of the legitimist [legitimate] party, signed Bar- [Bartholomew] thelemy, [them] and dated Wiesbaden, Augusi [August] 30, in which the writer states that he is charged officially by the Count de Chambord [Chamber] to say that he rejects the idea of an appeal to the people, which he would regard as a nega- [nena- negation] tion [ion] of the principle of legitimate monarchy, and calls upon all legitimists [legitimatise] to adopt a policy of unity subject to the personal direction of the Count de Chambord, [Chamber] who delegates his authority for the application of his policy tofive [to five] persons,--the Dukede [Duke] Levis, General Saint Priest, M. Berryer, [Berry er] the Duke des Cars, and the Marquis de Pastoret. [Pastor] This letter was regarded by most persons as apocryphal, for it was not credited that the advisers of the Count de Chambord [Chamber] would go to such a length as to induce him to declare himself thus openly, and even appoint a sort of ministry to carry his views into execu- [exec- execution] tion. [ion] Still less was it thought possible that MM. Berryer [Berry er] and Saint Priest, who are both members of a republican chamber, would allow their names to appear as responsible ministers of a pretender who openly calls upon the legitimists [legitimatise] of France to struggle for the restora- [restore- restoration] tion [ion] of the dynasty of Charles the Tenth, as the orly means of rescuing France from the dangers of revolu- [revolt- revolutionary] tionary [stationary] commotions. It appears, however, that the letier [letter] is authentic; for M. de La Rochejaquelin [Jacqueline] has ad- [addressed] dressed a letter to the Evenement [Government] in which he states that the communication of M. Barthelemy [Bartholomew] is official, and that he regards it as his own excommunication from the party of the Count de Chambord, [Chamber] he heving [having] proposed the appeal to the people. He says that he persists in denying the merely legitimate vight [eight] of the Count de Chambord [Chamber] unless it be recognised by the people, but that he must of course submit toa [to] policy of which he does not approve. There was a talk of prosecuting M. Barthelemy [Bartholomew] for this open appeal to his party to cver- [ever- overthrow] throw the republic, but the report was not believed to be well founded. The says The French government has ad- [addressed] dressed, through General Lahitte, [Latte] officious remon- [remain- remonstrances] strances [stances] to the Foreign Office, on the subject of the French refugees in London. Without feeling any serious fears from the proceedings of the exiled de- [democrats] mocrats, [Democrats] from their intrigues and propaganda, the government of the republic asks the English govern- [government] ment, [men] in the note of General Lahitte, [Latte] that the refugees should be looked after. M. Proudhon and M. Girardin [Guardian] continue, to the no small amusement of the public, to break their censers about each other's heads, the former accusing the latter of having been mainly instrumental, through his oppo- [op- opposition] sition [sit ion] to the candidateship [candidate ship] of M. Dupont (de l'Eure) [l'Ere] at the last Paris election, in causing the of the restrictive law on the press. M. Girardin, [Guardian] has, however, declined to take any further part in the conroversy. [controversy] The Minister of Public Works has returned to Paris and resumes the duties of his office. The Prefect of the Gironde [Ground] has suspended the mayor and deputy-mayor of the commune of Lavazan [Lavan] from the exercise of their functions. Three Socialists (one of them a Bavarian refugee) were arrested on Saturday last at Valence, in the de- [department] partment [department] of the Dréme, [Dream] by the Commissary of Police of that town. Some important documents were found in their possession, showing the attempt made to seduce the army. One of them wore the dress of a non-com- [commissioned] missioned [mission] officer of the Artillery. The Constitutionnel [Constitutional] says that the governments of Austria, Prussia, Bavaria, and Saxony have concluded a convention for the establishment of electric telegraphs. They have further agreed upon a general tariff, by which the price is reduced 50 per cent. AUSTRIA. The Wiener Zeitung [Stung] contains the official decrees con- [concerning] cerning [concerning] the definitive political organisation of Hungary. At the head of the Hungarian government is the statthalter, [settled] who is to reside in Pesth, [Pest] with a vice-presi- [vice-press- president] dent, councillors, secretaries, &c. In respect to its administration, Hun will be divided into five dis- [districts] tricts-Buda-Pesth, [tracts-Bad-Pest, -Buda-Pesth] Pressburg, [Press burg] Oedenburg, [Edinburgh] Kaschau, [Joshua] and Groswardein. [Rewarding] Each district will be governed by an obergespan [oxygen] (lord lieutenant) with the necessary employés. [employers] The obergespans [expanse] are subjected to the stati- [state- stationmaster] halter. Appeals against the decisions of the oberges- [Borges- expanse] pans are to be addressed directly to ministers. The five districts will be subdivided into counties. The Buda- [Bad- Budapest] Pesth [Pest] district contains ten, the Pressburg [Press burg] twelve, the Oedenburg [Edinburgh] nine, the Kaschau [Joshua] eight, and the Grosswardein [Greensward] district seven counties, and the Hadduck [Paddock] towns. The business of the counties is to be carried on by county governors, with the necessary civil officers. A decree of the military commander of Vienna, of the 18th instant, prohibits the circulation of the Cologne Gazette in Vienna, Hungary, and al parts and provinces of the Austrian empire in which the state of siege has been proclaimed. The military commander of Prague has announced that every person in whose possession a copy of the prohibited newspaper shall be found, shall be tried by court martial, and punished according to the provisions of military law. It is said that the Austrain [Austrian] government intends to exclude in a like manner almost all the better class of German newspapers. The Deutsche [Duets] Zeitung, [Stung] the Constitutionelle [Constitutional] Zeitung, [Stung] and the Weser [Sewer] Zeitung, [Stung] are marked for immediate prohibition. Hicuway [Highway] RoBBERY [Robbery] BY MISTAKE.-The followins [following] sin- [singular] gular [regular] adventure is related in the French journals -A party of gentlemen met a few days since for aday's [day's] shooting in the neighbourhood of Montereau. [Montreal] The house in which the sportsmen spent the night was situate half-way up a decli- [deli- declivity] vity [city] overlooking the high road. At about two o'clock in the morning one of the inmates hearing a noise raised ac that their vehicle was being stolen. 'I'he party were soon astir, and hearing a noise of wheels as of a coach going off, seized their weapons and rushed out in pursuit of the thieves, whom they soon succeeded in coming up with, t to a cross cut. The first of the party on the spot immediately seized the horses' l eads [l ads] and stopped the car- [carriage] riage [ridge] short. The people inside the carriage upon this im- [in- immediately] mediately began to cry Thieves -a degree of audacity at which our sportsmen grew exasperatcd, [exasperated] and cocking their guns they levelled them at the driver. The latter personage, together with the ind'viduals [ind'individuals] inside the carriage, were seized with terror at this demonstra- [ministry- demonstration] tion, [ion] and precipitating themselves from their seats rushed off into a neighbouring coppice, where they were presently lost sight of. Congratulating themselves on the recovery of their carriage, the sportsman returned with it in triumph dead beaten, but swelling with pride at ir exploit. It was now determined the carriage should safely secured in the coach-house, but what was their Surprise at finding the place already occupied by their own fo the servant had placed there the night be- [been] ne he y hee [her] knowledge. The cry of thieves, as the height of audacity on the vellers, [sellers] was now accounted for, and the interrupted in their journey were the bona which they had been but too knock up the authorities and on which they relied for thelr [their] defence cellency [Excellency] the Countess of Clarendon was safely delivered of a daughter at the Viceregal Lodge. Both mother and nfant [infant] are doing well. Tue Vacant Carer Jusricesnie.-The [Justices.-The] Mereantile [Mercantile] Advertiser says We can announce with certainty that Mr. Monaham, [Hammond] the attorney-general, has been appointe [appointed] Chief Justice of the Common Pleas. ,We are not certain about any other legal appointments. . Prosrecrs [Prospectus] or THE CounTRY.-The [Country.-The] Mercantile Adeer- [Deer- Advertiser] tiser [tires] has the following gratifying statement Still more encouraging than those of last week are our reports for the present. We can perceive, mm various quarters, a manifest tendency towards improvement-in the country fairs, especially in the prices of sheep-in the decided steadiness of the corn markets, in the face ofa [of] generally abundant harvest-in the increase of traffic receipts upon some of the established Irish railways-in the more active and healthy appearance of the share market, for legitimate investments; and, above all, in the growing confidence amongst the public, founded upon the impression, amongst even the most prudent and cautious traders, that we have seen the worst of our difficulties, and that we have already passed the turning point. Tae [Tea] Syxnop.-The [Saxon.-The] Fvening [Evening] Post of Saturday has the following in reference to the opinions of the bishops on the colleges -' We repeat it-a full moiety, if not the majority, of the Catholic bishops repudiate the notion thet [the] they have denounced the Queen's Colleges, and the system of national education. The lay Catholics of Ireland agree with the Most Reverend the Archbishop of Dublin and the full moiety of the Catholic prelates. It will speedily be found that the Catholic gentry, the middle orders of the Catholic people, and the humbler classes, who constitute the Catholic church in Ireland, with the Catholic clergy-and without whose presence, indeed, there could be no Catholic church in this country -will, the first, send their youth to the university; the second, to the Queen's Colleges; and the last, to the National Schools. Repeat AssociaTion.-The [Association.-The] receipts on Monday last were reported as 16 for the week, an intimation which was hailed with rapturous cheering, and put Mr. John O'Connell in excellent humour with himself. DEATH OF THE oF Mail of last week announces the death of the Right Rev. Dr. Stopford, Lord Bishop of Meath. This melancholy event took place suddenly on Tuesday night last, at ten o'clock, at Ardbraccan, [African] his Lordship's residence, in the county Meath. The deceased prelate was elevated from the archdeaconry of Armagh to the see of Meath during the viceroyalty of Earl de Grey. Dr. Stopford had been long labouring under the effects of disease of the heart, but had recently, considering his time of life, been in the enjoyment of tolerable health. His Lordship was a member of the Privy Council in Ireland. - ELECTION OF THE RECORDER OF LONDON.-A court of aldermen for the city of London was held on Tuesday, to elect a recorder in the place of the late Mr. Law. The court having previously decided that the salary should in future be 3,000 per annum, the candidates were Mr. Sergeant Merewether, [therewith] Mr. Russell Gurney, Q. C., Mr. Common-Sergeant Bullock, and Mr. J. A. 8. Wortley, M.P., brother of Lord Wharncliffe; [Arncliffe] but at the commence- [commencement] ment [men] of the proceedings, Sergeant Merewether [therewith] declined to be placed in nomination. A considerable amount of feeling was displayed, arising out of an attempt on the part of Sir Peter Laurie to exclude all strangers. course he ultimately succeeded by a small majority, and on a show of hands, there appeared for Mr. Wortley 13, Mr. Gurney 4, and Mr. Bullock 1. Mr. Wortley was accord- [accordingly] ingly [ingle] declared elected. DespatcH [Despatch] IN Business.-The New York Goods Reporter gives the following instances of the quickness of business transactions between Europe and New York - A Bradford manufacturer sent go from his warehouse, va railroad, to Liverpool, on the 19th of August; they were shipped on board the steamer Atlantic on the 21st, arrived in New York on Sunday the Ist [Its] of September, were sold by sample card on Monday the 2nd, delivered on Tues- [Tuesday] day the 3rd, and a sketch of the same returned by the steamer Europa, which left Boston on Wednesday the 4th instant. Allowing the steamer an average run, the con- [consigner] signer will be in possession of the result of the shipment in twenty-seven days from the date of consignment-a shorter space of time than would be likely to elapse between the giving of an order and receipt of goods from an American manufacturer. Caution TO PasseNGERS.-An [Passengers.-An] accident, by which in all probability a guard on the Great Western Railway has lost his life, occurred at the Farringdon-road Station a few mornings ago under the following melancholy circumstances -It appeared that one of the porters and a guard named Wise were standing on the above platform, when an excursion train from Cheltenham passed at the rate of forty miles an hour. As the train passed, a Mr. Alexander Shiver, draper, of Cheltenham, threw a glass bottle froin [from] one of the carriage windows, which hit Wise on the forehead, and wounded him in such a manner that his death was hourly expected. Mr. Shiver has been bailed out of the Marylebone Police Court, until the fate of the injured man is known with greater certainty. We trust that this distressing event will operate on railway travellers as a caution irom [from] pursuing a like practice. DetTecTION [Detection] cF A THIEF BY A CaTIN [Cation] LonDoN.-At [London.-At] the Thames Police Court, on Wednesday week, John Murphy, a rough-looking young Irishman, was charged with being in the Hutchison's Arms public-house, in Devonport-street, Commercial-road, with intent to commit felony. On Friday night week, the prisoner was in the tap-room of the Hutchi- [Hatch- Hutchison] son's Arms, but was missed shortly before the house was closed, and it was concluded that he had gone out. A few minutes afterwards, Mrs. Arthur, the mother of the land- [landlady] lady, having occasion to enter the tap-room, found that a favourite cat was very uneasy and exhibited symptoms of rage, alternately rushing at the fire-place and returning to its mistress, purring and mewing loudly. At last, Mrs. Arthur searched the room, but could find nothing unusual, and then called her son, Mr. Henry Arthur, landlord of the house, who was as much surprised at the conduct of the cat as his mother. As the animal repeatedly flew at the fire-place and retreated in, he at last thought of looking up the chimney, where he found the cause of the cat's alarm in the person of Murphy, who was pulled down by the heels into the tap-room, and given into custody. A candle and some lucifer-matches [life-matches] were found in his possession. Evidence was given of several robberies committed in other public-houses where Murphy had been seen, and where the thief had apparently concealed him- [himself] selt [set] in the chimney. Ultimately the magistrate committed Murpiy [Murphy] to three months' imprisonment with hard labour, for being in the Hutchison's Arms public-house, with intent to commit felony. ACCIDENT ON THE GREAT NORTHERN Raltway.-On [Railway.-On] Saturday night last an accident of a very serious character happened on this newly-opened line of railway, and which there is reason to fear will result in the death of the fireman, if not of one or two other persons who were unfortunately proceeding by the train. It appears that a very heavy cattle train, the first, itis [its] believed, that the Great Northern authorities have run upon the line, on arriving at the Hitchin station, had to be taken across upon the down line, to make room for two up trains, which were thendue. [then] At the time the cattle train was so driven upon the down line, the 8 o'clock down train from the King's-cross Station was also due. The redsignal [signal] light was put on, and a policeman was sent upon the line with the light to caution the driver of the down train tostop. [to stop] Whether the driver of the down train saw the red signal, or whether the cattle train was in advance-that is, on the London side of the Hitchin Station-is not stated, and appears not to have been very correctly ascertained. The result however, was, that the down train ran with great violence into the two engines that were attached to the cattle train, all three engines, each of which is estimated at about 2,000 value, being so materially damaged as hardly to be able to run again. The driver of the down train was thrown off the engine before he could become acquainted with the danger of his position, and has sustained such severe internal injuries that fears were enter- [entertained] tained [gained] for his life. The fireman had his leg broken, and a lady, who was a passenger by the train, had several of her ribs broken, and another passenger sustained severe fractures of limbs. Many others were injured; but, with the exception of those mentioned, they were not so severely damaged as to prevent their conveyance to their respective destinations. The authorities have resolved on instituting a rigid enquiry with a view to ascertain the cause of the lamentable accident.- [accident] THE LEEDS MONUMENT TO Mr. BAINES.-We observe, from the Leeds Mercury, that last week a meeting of the admirers of the late Edward Baines, Esq., formerly pro- [proprietor] prietor [proprietor] of that paper, and M.P. for that borough, was held in the council room of the Leeds Court-house. The Mayor presided, and besides his worship there were present Mr. Alderman Shaw, Darnton Lupton, Esq., George Goodman, Esq., Mr. Alderman Carbutt, Mr. Alderman Luccock, Mr. Alderman Richardson, Mr. Councillor Avens, Joseph Mid- [Middleton] dieton, [diet] Esq. (barrister-at-law), John Peele Clapham, Esq., James Kitson, Esq., George Rawson, jun., -, John Shackleton, Esq.; Messrs. William Kettlewell, Samuel Topham, J. Grimshaw, W. Whitehead, George Heaps, Henry Wardman, C. Hindle, J. H. Thorp, Wardell, &e.- On the motion of Mr. Lupton, seconded by Mr. Middleton, the following resolution was adopted - That this meeting highiy [high] approves, and will cordially support, the erection of a era in some public place or in Leeds, in memory of the late Edward Baines, Esq.; who by a course of persevering exertions, guided by religious principle, honourable feeling, and discriminating judgment, raised himself to the magistracy and the senate, and in both capacities emi- [mi- eminently] nently [neatly] promoted the public service, as well as the local interests of the town, . Mr. Lupton read letters received from Earl Carlisle, Earl Fitzwilliam, the Vicar of Harewood, William Chadwick, Esq., of Arksey, near Doncaster; E. S. Cayley, Esq., M.P. for the North Riding; and other noblemen and gentlemen, all highly approving of the object. He also stated that letters of approval had been received from Lord Brougham, James Brown, Esq., of Rossington and Hare- [Hare hills] hills John Crossley, Esq., mayor of Halifax Josh. Ellison Esq., of Birkenshaw John Gresham, Esq., late mayor of Hull; William Aldam, Esq., of Frickley Hall (late M.P. for Leeds); John Adams, Esq., of Selby James Stansfeld, Esq., of Halifax; T. F. Ellis, Esq., recorder of Leeds ; William Marratt, [Marriott] -, of Doncaster; J. G. Uppleby, [Apply] Esq., of Leeds; Mr. uncillor [Councillor] Garland, of Leeds; John Blackburne, Esq., the coroner of Leeds; and many other gentlemen. ACCIDENT ON THE NorTH [North] Kent RaiLway.-At [Railway.-At] ten on Sunday night, an accident occurred at Stone-cross-gate, by which, it is thought, one of the company's servants will be rendered incapable for the performance of further duties. It appears that a man, employed as gate-keeper, was in the act of signalizing 'All right for the up-train due at the time mentioned; and, before he succeeded in crossing the rails, he was met by the engine belonging to the down- [down train] train, which over him, thereby fracturing his ribs, and frigh [Fri] mutilating his right arm and leg. The 2. unfortunate man was conveyed to Guy's Hospital at an early hour next morning, with little hopes of recovery. thousand persons, notwithstanding the heavy rain and the charge of 1s. for admission, which was complained of as an unjust exaction. The seats were ail numbered and divided into sections, by means of flags of different colours. The orchestra was occupied by the clerks of Mr. Barnum and the auctioneer, and by the reporters. Mr. Leeds, senior member of the firm of Henry Leeds and Co., 8, Walls-street, then ascended the stand that had been erected in front of the orchestra, and said he was now standing on the spot where Jenny Lind would stand. (Laughter.) He then proceeded to sell the first ticket, having the right to the first choice seat to the first concert of Jenny Lind in America. The first bid was 25 dollars, and for a long time the contest was between the Irving-house and the New York Hotel, each bidding very spiritedly, to the great amusement of the spectators, who laughed outright. Dr. Moffat, Dr. Townsend, and Dr. Brandreth, also offered for it; but, it seems, Genin, [Genuine] the hatter, was determined to have it, and instructed a clerk of his to offer 500 dollars for it rather than lose it. At length it was knocked down to him at the enormous sum of 225 dollars, more than ever was given for a ticket before. When the clerk announced the name, there was the most enthu- [tenth- enthusiastic] siastic [sciatic] cheering, and the people under him stood up on a seat till they gave him three cheers more. The next choice ticket was sold to Mr. Robinson, for 25 dollars, and then the prices came down to 15 dollars, 13 dollars, 12 dollars, 11 dollars, and 10 dollars. The first large purchase was by Mr. Howard, of the Irving-house, who purchased ten front choice seats in the gallery at 11 dollars each, and ten more adjoining them at 10 dollars each. But the seats for which the highest prices were paid, next to the first choice, were four in Jenny Lind's private box over the stage. The two principal com- [competitors] petitors [competitors] were the Irving House and the New York Hotel. The latter obtained them at 35 dollars, or 140 dollars for the four. After selling about five hundred choice seats, which were curiously selected here and there in the building, and not with regard to any advan- [advance- advantage] tage [age] they really possessed, there were just as good seats sold afterwards for 5 dollars and 6 dollars as those that 'cost 15 dollars, and 12 dollars, and 10 dollars. Number of tickets sold, 1,429; total sum, 9,119 [9,W] dollars average price paid, 6 dollars 38 cents. The preceding report of the auction, on Saturday, of tickets to Jenny Lind's first concert, has excited a good deal of interest in this city, and the auction is the sub- [subject] ject [jet] of conversation everywhere, particularly in reference to the first ticket, purchased by Genin, [Genuine] the hatter, whose establishment is next door to Barnum's Museum, in Broadway. Some say it ig gjuggle, [Giggle] and that there has been an understanding begwgen [begging] him and Barnum. But that does not account for the' bids made by five others, who all seemed anxious te get it. There was a better solution of the mystery than to charge it to Peter Funk. It was not that the first choice was one iota better than the second, which sold for twenty-five dollars, or than another, which long afterwards was purchased, adjoining the two hundred and twenty-five dollar seat, for ten dollars for, in point of fact, the seat selected by Mr. Genin, [Genuine] right under where Jenny Lind will stand when she sings, is by no means the best seat, and the choice shows that Mr. Genin [Genuine] is a far greater adept in hat making than in music; and we may add, that but very few showed a good judgment in the selection of the choice seats for which they paid so high, the best seats being yet to be sold. But Genin [Genuine] would not, probably, give three dollars even for a seat on the stage to hear the nightingale sing, if he had not some other object in view than the pleasure it would givehim. [give him] We will be asked, what can that object be We answer; Genin [Genuine] has found out a secret by which a few men in this city have realised large fortunes. He has begun to study the phi- [philosophy] losophy [Joseph] of advertising, and, being an enterprising fellow, he calculated that he would test the truth of the philo- [Phil- philosophy] sophy [Sophia] by a practical application, and resolved to give five hundred dollars for the choicest seat in the whole house to Jenny Lind's first concert, rather than lose so fine a chance of advancing his interests. One gentleman asked him why he gave so much for a ticket, and if he was not a fool for doing so No, said he, I will make it pay. Another came up, immediately after the sale, and offered him five dollars premium on it if he would transfer it and allow his name to go forth to the public as the purchaser. Genin [Genuine] said he would not give it for five hundred dollars. We have the secret of the value of the ticket in the fact of the kind of men who were the chief competitors for it. They were three patent medicine doctors, who have made fortunes by advertising, and regarded this as a trump card, knowing that the name of Jenny Lind would attract attention all over the country, and that their advertisements being connected therewith, would besuretoberead. [Sweetbread] Genin [Genuine] calculated that thisauction [this auction] would be attended by a reporter from the Herald, and that, if he bought the first choice ticket, his name and establishment would be recorded, and come before a hundred times as many readers as it could by any other means. We understand that he is about to follow up this idea on. the night of the concert, and that he will sit in the front of the audience with a hat suspended over his head. Truly, it is a Yankee notion. The ticket is worth a thousand dollars to him. We think we have now explained the secret of Genin's [Genuine's] inati [into] him so vehemently For two reasons -First, for his ingenuity in advertising by paying for a ticket to a con- [concert] cert a sum that was never paid before, even in England ; and, secondly, because the first choice was taken from the upper ten by a tradesman. The excitement about the Nightingale, which has been rising higher and higher every day for the last week, rose on Monday to fever heat. The two great events of the day were the continuation and conclusion of the auction for choice seats at the first concert, and the first rehearsal of the great cantatrice [countries] on this continent. We shall take them in the order of time as follow - THE TICKET AUCTION. The adjourned auction for the sale of choice seats to Jenny Lind's concert proceeded at ten o'clock on Monday morning in Castle Garden; Mr. Leeds, the same auctioneer as on Saturday, knocking them down in such rapid style that it was no easy matter to accompany him. The stand was fixed in the lery, [ley] which was more convenient. The house was crowded as before, and what was very remarkable, it was not the upper ten, but the masses of the people, who constituted the great bulk of the assembly. The excitement was intense. Owing to the time being limited, and the rehearsal having to come on at two o'clock, it was necessary to give the purchaser the pri- [pro- privilege] vilege [village] of taking twenty tickets instead of ten, as was done on the former day and when the time pressed still more closely they were sold in lots of fifty each ; and finally, the privilege of taking the balance was given to the purchasers of the fourth lot from the end. The sale wound up with Hall purchasing 193 in one lot, and then it was announced that the promenade tickets, amounting to from 400 to 600, would be sold at 3 dols. [sold] each, at the office of the American Museum. Several tiers of new seats were erected under the gallery, which sold at from 434 to 5dols. [tools] A portion of the upper tier of the gallery was reserved for the press, the portion in the lower part of the house allotted to the reporters having been sold by mistake. It will be seen that Hall and Jollie, [Ollie] but especially Hall, bought largely. Mr. Hall had orders for 1,800 tickets, and towards the end of the sale he was offered 2,000 dollars for his profits, which he refused. The following are the sales in the order in which they occurred - Tickets, Total cost. Saturday's sale 1,429 ... 9,119 dols. [sold] Yesterday's sale 3,055 ... 15,319 Total ............ 4,484 ... 24,438 dols. [sold] Promenade tickets, to be sold at 3 dols. [sold] .- 1,800 Aggregate ...... 5,084 ... 26,238 dols. [sold] Tue First REHEARSAL.-As soon as the auction con- [concluded] cluded, [eluded] on Monday, preparations were made for the rehearsal of the first concert, and the members of the orchestra took their places on the stage, being marshalled under Signor Benedict, so distinguished as a composer, a leader of opera bands, and last, not least, as the fast friend of Jenny Lind. Meantime the Nightingale was taking an airing on the promenade, outside of the castle, revelling with delight in the glorious view of the bay that lay before her, and conversing with one or two ladies, who were specially privileged to be present. She wore a very pretty tartan dress, with a crimson shawl, and a light green silk bonnet. When the orchestra were ready she took her seat in the gallery, for the pur- [our- purpose] pose of ascertaining the effect of the band 1pon [upon] the ear at that distance. CONVICTION OF A Poor Law OFFICER.-Last Saturday (week)a man named Adam Uriah Bryant, a tin plate worker, with his wife and female child, who were travelling from Manchester to London, entered Newcastle entirely desti- [dist- destitute] tute, and made an application to Mr. Tilsley, [Lisle] the relieving officer, for relief. Assistance being refused, the man, who from documents in his possession had been, or was still, a member of a Livery Company in London, and whose appear- [appearance] ance [once] indicated that neither he nor his wife belonged to the common class of tramps, epplies [applies] to Mr. Thomas Walton Mayer, the mayor, to whom he detailed the of his case. The mayor wrote to the relieving officer, inform- [informing] ing him that he considered the parties were destitute and fit objects to be relieved. The officer still refusing assist- [assistance] ance, [once] the mayor, asa magistrate, and also an ex officio rdian [guardian] under the poor law act, made a formal order upon im [in] to give relief in food and lodging to the parties. Mr. Tilsley [Lisle] still refusing to comply, the man and his family were lodged and provided for at the police station, and a summons was issued against the relieving offic [office] r for refusing and neglecting to obey the order. The case was heard on Monday before the mayor, and Mr. J. Nicki on, and Mr. W. Dutton, when Mr Tilsley's [Lisle's] defence was that he had acted upon the order of the Assistant Poor Law Commis- [Comms- Commissioner] sioner [sooner] and the Board of Guardians, which was to refuse relief indiscriminately to tramps. The magistrates, consi- [cons- consider] d ring that no order from any body of officials could over- [override] ride the authority of an act oF parliament, fined Mr. Tilsley [Lisle] 20s. and costs for neglecting and refusing to obey the order sent to him.

But why did the people cheer. le of enticing from her home a young girl sabella [label] Hamilton, daughter of an English clergyman ident [dent] at Tours. Some months ago M. de Forestier ent [end] to live in that city, for the benefit of his wife's health, and in his walks he fell in with Miss Isabella Hamilton, who, with her borne, accompanied her young sisters and brothers in their promenades, He com- [commenced] menced [mended] an acquaintance by giving the children cakes, 'and afterwards made a point of being every day on the promenade when Miss Isabella arrived. After a while it appeared, according to the indictment, he began mak- [make- making] ing love to the young lady, and she received his advances with good She used also to indicate to him, by placing a flower-pot in a particular position in her win- [window] dow, [down] in what promenade he might meet her. He at said the indictment, persuaded her to leave her father's roof, and, in company with the bonne, [bone] a girl named Adele Gendron, [Gridiron] aged 17, go to Paris, where he mid he would secure her an apartment, and would pro- [provide] vide [side] for both. Isabella, it seemed, was very glad to get sway from-home, as her parents were about to send her to school in England-a measure to which she had the strongest possible repugnance she even, it appeared, had gone the length of telling Forestier that she would sooner commit suicide by poison than be sent away. Forestier, it was alleged, arranged with Isabella that she and her servant, Adele, should leave the house of the Rev. Mr. Hamilton in the evening of the 22nd May last, and that they should go to Paris. He had previously written a letter to a friend of his, the Baron Eugene de Vivier, [Vizier] telling him to meet the girls and provide lodgings for them. This letter he began by saying I send to you, my friend, a young English girl, aged fifteen, with a pretty little face, light hair, clear blue eyes, delicate nose, sensual mouth, and slightly pro- [prominent] minent [eminent] chin. She is the daughter of an Irish minister, who has a host of children. She will be accompanied by a little bonne [bone] of seventeen, with auburn hair, &c., named He then went on to say that at a future time he would tell the friend all the history of the affair, but that he might then mention thas, [has] the young lady had threatened suicide. Don't make Me any objection, he added; I have only acted after long deliberations. I beg of you to meet them at the railway station on their arrival-Isabella (that is the name of my charming pretty miss) will have a plaid gown, a straw bonnet, and a black woollen cloak; the servant, an old black bonnet of her mistresses. They have been told you will be there, and will expect to meet you. That they may recognise you, have a white flower at your button-hole, or rather keep a pocket-handkerchief constantly to your mouth. I laugh at the thought of your meeting these poor creatures Take an apartment for them-let it be simple, but becoming. He next recommends the friend to be cautious, and then says The father will no doubt take some measures, which it is important to render vain. I shall therefore continue to show myself in the public promenades, that I may not be suspected ; and then I will relieve you in your guard. My wife is better. Brittonneau [Britannia] is tending her as if she were his own child. She is surrounded with devoted attendants, has a good house, and her physician in ordinary is one of the princes of the science. What can Ido more I may venture to give myself this little gratification. Don't scold me. I tell you that the father is an English- [Englishman] man and a clergyman--two animals I detest, and who are, a8 it were, grafted one on the other, expressly to take from me all sort of yemorse. [remorse. The Baron Eugene de Vivier [Vizier] replied in the same strain, saying, among other amiable things, I had some thoughts of moral- [moralising] ising [using] with you, but what's the use The wine is drawn, and you must drink it. On the 22nd May, as arranged, the two young girls met the Count de Forestier at the appointed rendezvous. He accompanied them to the railway, and paid their fare to Paris. At Paris they were received by the Baron de Vivier, [Vizier] and he took them to a lodging-house in the Rue del'Université. [de'University] There the young lady refused to give her name, and directed that no one should be admitted to her except her uncle (Vi- [Vizier] vier) [vie] and her husband, whom she said she expected. Vivier [Vizier] visited her several times during the day. Mean- [Meanwhile] while Forestier remained quietly at Tours, in order that he might not be suspected of having been concerned in the flight. But it so happened that the family at once suspected him, and the Rev. Mr. Hamilton immediately laid a complaint against him before the Procureur [Procure] de la Republique. [Republic] That functionary, in order to avoid scandal, went to Forestier's hous2, [house] and called on him for explanations. Forestier declined to say any- [anything] thing, and thereupon the Procureur [Procure] de la Republique [Republic] resolved to have him arrested. But it being then after nightfall, the arrest could not be legally effected. The Procureur [Procure] accordingly caused the count's house to be surrounded by police agents during the night to prevent his escape. On this Forestier wrote off to Paris to Vivier [Vizier] to send back the girls immediately, and he con- [constituted] stituted [situated] himself a prisoner. The next day Miss Isa- [Isabella] bella [bell] and her attendant arrived in Tours, and the former was restored to her parents. The public prose- [prosecutor] cutor, [tutor] however, deemed it his duty to detain Forestier, ,and to prosecute him. The Rev. Mr. Hamilton, on the contrary, was anxious that the matter should be dropped, 'and he wrote an affecting letter to the public prose- [prosecutor] cutor, tutor, cutor] formally withdrawing his complaint, and entreat- [entreating] ing him to drop the prosecution; but the procureur [procure] represented that.t take its course.in the reliminary [preliminary] examination the Rev. Mr. Hamilton, Mrs. Hamilton, and Miss Isabella were called on to give evi- [vi- evidence] dence. [dene] The first named declared that his daughter was born in 1836, at Clifton, near Bristol the second des- [described] cribed [cried] the young lady's flight, and communicated the substance of a letter she had left behind her. Isabella herself varied in her statements. In her first examina- [examine- examination] tion [ion] she declared that she had resolved on the flight herself, and that Forestier had scolded her on her folly, and had dissuaded her from it; he only, she said, consented to aid her, when he saw that she was quite determined to go. She was not aware, she declared, that she was to meet him at Paris, and she had resolved, she said, to change her name. She solemnly took God to witness to the truth of all this. But when Forestier's letters were read to her she expressed great indignation, she nevertheless did not retract her statement. In her second examina- [examine- examination] tion, [ion] on the contrary, she declared that it was Forestier who had first proposed to her to fly, and that he had offered to abandon his wife, notwithstanding her illness, to go with her. She at-first, she said, considered this was a joke, and had laughed at it, but he had pressed her and had got the servant Adéle [Adele] to do so likewise. It was only by their intreaties [treating] that she had gone. On arriving at Paris, Vivier [Vizier] told her that Forestier was in love with her, and would die if obliged to live without -her. When told of the way in which he had spoken of her in his letter, she burst into tears, and said, Ah it is painful to see his contempt forme [form I opened my heart to him, and he learned that I loved him. Yes, I knew he was married. Alas I know not how I could have acted so Isabella was then confronted with Forestier, and she persisted in declaring that it was he who had enticed her to go. Forestier said that the contrary was the fact, and he complained to her that she was not telling the truth. You cannot wish to ruin me, Mademoiselle, said he, by stating what is untrue and he pressed and supplicated her to retract. But she refused, and he said at last, Well having in vain made an appeal to the honest sen- [sentiments] timents [sentiments] of Mademoiselle, I must resign myself to my fate. In the third examination Isabella again varied her story. She said she had laid too much to the count's charge; that in consequence of dissen- [dissent- dissensions] sions [Sons] with her sister, she had resolved on leaving her parents; that she had declared to Forestier that if he would not take her away, she would poison herself; and 80 on. She added that she had spoken against him on the last occasion, because she had been told that he had declared that he would sooner go to the galleys for life than marry her. In her last examination she again formally and positively declared that it was she alone who had resolved on leaving home, that Forestier had never persuaded her to go, never promised to leave his wife for her-and never, she added, attempted to intro- [introduce] duce himself into her apartment. At the trial (which took place before a court crowded to excess) Isabella, her father, mother, and elder sister, did not appear to give evidence, though all had been summoned. The principal evidence for the prosecution consisted in the reading of the indictment, and in the testimony of Mr. Holley, Lieutenant-Colonel Campbell, and a younger brother and sister of Isabella, as to the precise age of that young lady. They all stated that she was about fourteen. This point was important, as by the French law, the crime of what is called detournement [tournament] d'wne [d'we] jeune [June] Jjille [Jill] mineure, [minute] can only be committed when the girl is under sixteen after that age she is considered a free agent, and is accountable for her own actions. Baron de Vivier [Vizier] was examined, but his evidence threw little light on the affair. When asked by thepresident [the president] how he could have acted as he had done, he said he had been in fluenced [influenced] by his friendship for Count de Forestier. It was stated that since this unfortunate affair Forestier's wife had died, and that he, anxious to make all the reparation in his power for the injury he had done her, had offered to marry her, but that her father had positively refused. Forestier caused evidence to be given by several persons to prove that he had gvery [very] reason to believe from Isabella's personal appearance and other circumstances that she was more than sixteen years of age, and he laboured both in his interrogatory and throughout the trial to show that he had not per- [persuaded] suaded [sided] her to leave herhome. [her home] After the pleadin [leading] g8 were over, Forestier, in a voice of much emotion, read a paper to the jury, drawn up as follows I have to make before my fellow-citizens, the avowal of a fault which the law does not punish; and you will accept this avowal as a further expiation, to be added to my long sufferings, During two years I struggled to save from eath [earth] the life of an angel to whom I had associated my destiny, when a fatal and unforeseen meeting surprised me in one of those moments of moral discouragement, in which a man has not sufficient stre [ste] to maintain 1 in the line of duty. You will not brand my life, gentlemen, for a moment's self-forgetfulness you Taust [Taste] not confounds fault with a erime [erie] you will not honour of Miss Hamilton is intact, and that I have offered her all the reparation in my power. The President then summed up, and the jury, after an hour's deliberation, returned a verdict of Not guilty. remained in gaol till the evening, Count de Forestier was waiting but when he went away a numerous crowd at the door to see him. & POISONINGS IN CARMARTHENSHIRE.-In a previous we gave an account of some sus poisonings which had taken place at Laugharne, armarthenshire. [earthenware] The inquest on the body of the deceased girl, Uphill, who, it will be remembered, was housemaid in the family of Mr. T. Severne, [Severe] of Brixton, near Lai [La] and whose death, it was sus) administered to her by beth Gibbs, was resum [resume] e cook in the same family, Eliza- [Eliza] ed on Monday, at the Globe Inn, Laugharne, before Mr. G. Thomas, coroner for the lower division of the county; and on the same day an inquest was commenced on the body of Mary Ann Severne, [Severe] tke [the] lady of Mr. T. Severne, [Severe] whose death, we before stated, occured [occurred] after a brief illness on the 2st [st] of July last, and was attended by all the symptoms which usually follow on the administration of arsenic. The inquest on the body of Rebecca Uphill lasted till nearly midnight, when the jury returned a verdict that the deceased died from the effects ot white arsenic, wilfully administered to her by the cook, Elizabeth Gibbs, being tantamount toa [to] verdict of wilful murder against her; and she was accordingly com- [committed] mitted [fitted] to the county gaol to await her tri [ti] The second inquest, on the body of Mrs. Severne, [Severe] was commenced during the day. The body was exhumed and examined by Mr. Hamilton and Mr. Hughes, of Carmarthen, who found extensive marks of inflammation. The viscera were handed over to Mr. Herapath. [Rather] That gentleman immediately com- [commenced] menced [mended] an analysis in the church vestry, and succeeded in discovering the presence ot arsenic, and the inquest was subsequently adjourned to give time for a more perfect analysis, and for the production of evidence. The follow- [following] ing facts have transpired ing the death of Mrs. Severne [Severe] -On Sunday, the 21st of J we Mr. Severne [Severe] went to church, leaving his lady at home in her usual health; on his return he found her ant iy Eh, vomit- [vomiting] ing and ing, accompanied by violent pain. surgeon who was sent or that she was suffering from cholera, but in little more than four hours after she was first attacked she died. It is now recollected that no one was with her during her illness, and that she partook of nothing which was not prepared by the cook, Elizabeth Gibbs. The disclosures thus made at these inquests have created the utmost consternation and alarm in the pretty village of Laugharne. WRECK OF THE SUPERB STEAMER.-We regret to have the painful duty of announcing the loss of the steamer Superb, Captain Priaulx, [Perils] and of eleven of the passengers and crew, on the Minquiers [Miners] Rocks, and very near to the identical spot on which the excursion steamer Polka was run to save the lives of the passengers a week ago. The Polka was also under the command of the same master. The Superb left St. Malo [Male] for Jersey at half-past seven o'clock, on Tuesday, and did not take the usual course ; but, it is believed, with a view to making a shorter e, took the course so distressingly fatal. She struck violently at half-past nine o'clock a.m. on the sunken rocks, and immediately filled with water, her bows having been thrown on the rocks, caused her to heel over, throwing the pas- [passengers] sengers [singers] on the starboard side of the vessel. The captain, it is said immediately ordered the boats (of which there were only two) to be lowered, when with some half-dozen he got mto [to] one of them. This proceeding produced the greatest consternation among the passengers. The fire at the same moment was extinguished by the water, and an immediate rush was made for the other boat; but all who entered it found a watery grave, for there is reason to be- [believe] lieve [liver] that the plugs were not in the boat, and they got off without an oar. The consequence was the boat was seen to be gradually sinking without possibility of relief, and the countenances of those unhappy persons presented a scene of horror beyond description, for they sank shortly in smooth water. Fortunately the tide was falling fast, which soon left the ship high and dry on the rocks; but the scene of anguish and alarm baffles description. Signals of distress were successfully made to the cutter Jupiter, about five or six miles off. The wind being light, two hours elapsed before she could reach us, but she succeeded in doing so, and saved the lives of all excepting those who rushed to the boat and two children, who were unfortunately thrown overboard by the shock as the vessel struck, the deck having burst upwards with the blow and thus thrown them over. Captain Priaulx [Perils] and some of the crew remained on board the cutterin [cutter] the vicinity of the wreck. Thesurvivors [The survivors] are about forty in number. Fatt [Fat] oF A Mit [It] at SHEFFIELD. On Saturday the establishment of Messrs. Walters and Co., of Globe Works, Sheffield, was thrown into great confusion and alarm by the sudden fall of a great part of their grinding mill. The building is three stories high, and the which fell con- [consists] sists [lists] of three rooms, measuring about fifty-feet by twenty- [twenty] four. On the ground floor the heavy grinding was conducted, on the first floor the grinding of a lighter character, and on the top floor the ight [it] grinding and the buffing. The first floor rested upon four very flat brick arches. Each arch sprung from a strong cast-iron beam which crossed the room, and was supported in the centre by a metal pillar. A number of workmen were engaged at the time on each flooor [floor] of the buildi [build] The men on the ground floor observed a falling of dust from one of the arches imme- [Mme- immediately] diately [lately] followed by a crack and a ual [al] settling down of the brickwork. e men on the first floor also heard the crack, and perceived a sinking of the floor beneath them. Both of these sets of men rushed to the other end of the place, and escaped unhurt. The men on the top floor also heard a noise, but not supposing it to be anything unusual, took no notice till they found the floor sinking and the win- [windows] dows [does] breaking from the giving way of the outer wall. Several of them escaped to one end of the building, and slided [slide] down the chain of the crane to the ground. But before the others could escape two of the arches supporting the first floor broke in pulling inward the outer from the floor to the roof, and the floor of the top storey. Seve- [See- Several] ral [al] of the men in the top room were involved in the ruins. They were quickly extricated and conyeyed [conveyed] to the infir- [infirm- infirmary] mary. [may] It was found that one of them, named John Heath- [Heathcote] cote, had sustained a compound fracture of the left leg. Another, named William Crownshaw, had received a severe concussion of the brain and nervous system, besides various bruises. Two others suffered from contusions of a slighter character. With to the cause of the accident, it would appear that the grinding stones and troughs on the first floor were of considerable weight, and that water from the troughs kept the brickwork of the arches almost con- [constant] stan'ly [ly] in a moist state ROBBERY AND ATTEMPTED MURDER IN LonDON.-We [London.-We] doubt whether the annals of crime present a case more atrocious, more ingenicusly [ingeniously] planned and coolly executed, than a robbery and attempt at murder perpetrated in Aldersgate-street on Friday afternoon. For a considerable time a gentleman, named Cureton, [Cretan] has lodged in the house of Mr. Wilson, a tailor, 81, Alderscate-street. [Eldest-street] Mr. Cureton [Cretan] is connected with the British Museum, and buys coins and medals for that establishment. He has been in the habit of keeping a quantity of easily-convertible property at his lodgings, and this fact appears from the event to have become known to some of the higher class of London thieves. On Friday afternoon, three men dressed in first-rate style, entered Mr. Wilson's shop, and enqnired [enquired] for Mr. Cureton. [Cretan] Mr. Wilson admitted them, and directed them to the second floor. In about a quarter of an hour afterwards they came down stairs, without showing the least sign of hurry, and left the house. Shortly after their departure Mrs. Wilson had occasion to go up to Mr. Cureton's [Cretan's] rooms, and she found him lying on the floor, insensible, his face black, and blood running from a wound in his forehead. She thought he had fallen in an apoplectic fit, and sent at once for a surgeon. It was many hours befure [before] Mr. Cureton [Cretan] was restored to consciousness, and, as soon as his strength per- [permitted] mitted, [fitted] he gave the following account of the attack made upon him -The three supposed gentlemen pretended that they had called to enquire whether he had a crown of Wil- [William] liam and Mary. He replied in the affirmative, and asked them to be seated. As he was in the act of handing a chair to one of the men, the other two got behind him, and quickly placed some instrument round his neck, which squeezed him like a vice. Almost at the same moment, one of them struck him a blow over the right eye, and he remembered nothing more. Mr. Cureton [Cretan] saw the movement of the in- [instrument] strument [instrument] towards his neck, and attempted to throw a small box at the window, hoping in that way to give an alarm. The thieves probably thought they had murdered Mr. Cureton. [Cretan] They removed the instrument from his neck, and carried off coins and medals valued at 300. The surgeon who was called in is of opinion that if Mrs. Wilson had not providentially gone up to Mr. Cureton [Cretan] so soon, he would have died, as reaction had just commenced. Upon making inquiries at the residence of Mr. Cureton, [Cretan] on Sunday night, we learned that he has much better and more collected than he was on Saturday morning. He is now able to give a more clear account of the manner in which he was treated, and the amount of property taken away by the thieves. He states that two of the three men appeared deeply engaged together, and after minutely examining the coin which they had enquired about, they desired to be shown a half-crown of the same reign. At that moment Mr. Cureton [Cretan] noticed that one of the men did not enter beyond the step of the door. There is now no doubt that the party was watching to see whether any one came up or went down the stairs. Mr. Cureton, [Cretan] thinking that probably he was a frend [friend] of the others, and not inte- [inter- interested] rested in the of antiquities, asked him to be seated, and at the same time he turned round to hand him the chair he had been sitting on a few minutes previously. The instrument was at that juncture passed round his meek It was formed by lashing tio [to] life preservers together. The property taken away was deposited in sundry cabinets, and consisted of crowns and half-crown pieces of Oliver Crom- [From- Cromwell] well, King Alfred, and numerous nglo-Saxon [long-Saxon] coins, as well as a diamond pin, a silver capped and jewelled watch, and a box of cigars. A reward of 50 was yesterday (Sun- [Sunday] day) offered for the apprehension of the villains. Should the parties offer the coins for sale, there is no doubt that they will be apprehended; and although the property is worth from 300 to 400 to Mr. Cureton, [Cretan] yet, should it be transferred to the melting pot, it will probably not realise as many shillings for old silver. Up to Thursday no clue had been obtained of the perpetrators of this myste- [system- mysterious] rious [riots] and daring outrage, although the officers having the conduct of the matter, Inspectors Howard and Webb, of the city detective force, have taxed their ingenuity to the utmost to obtain some trace of the stolen property. It can- [cannot] not be ascertained that any attempt had foam made to dis- [dispose] pose of the property, and it does not ap probable that the thieves would do so at present, well knowing it would lead to immediate detection. Mr. Cureton, [Cretan] who is now nearly recovered from the effects of the attack, expresses his conviction that he should be able to identify one if not all of the parties, and several anonymous communications have been received from parties professing to have been attacked in a similar manner, who state their belief that they could also identify them, and express their readiness to come forward at the proper time. SINECURE BENEFICES.-A return to parliament has been made, containing a list of sinecure benefices in land and Wales, with the name of the patron and incumbent, and the annual value and population of each. It ap that there sinecure benefices, of which eighteen are in the diocese of Norwich. The annual value of these benefices ranges from 10 to 1,125. In some of the places there are no churches, and in others the churches are in a dilapidated state. The population exceeds in some of the sinecure benefices one thousand souls, RS Tin Gendron, [Gridiron] was included in the A BORDER JE Fe AT YORK.
