(From the Examiner.) The Tous [Tours] has given, under the head of General Hayuau [Hay] and the press of Germany and Austria, various aimdversions [imitations] on the late assault. The Allgemeine [alleging] ktuay, [Actuary] the Times of Germany, after taking a very eaggerated [exaggerated] view of the affair, asks -- Are uot [not] the English afraid of being served in the same way-the English, who every year spoil our beautiful land- [landscape] scajes [scales] by the oddity of their appearance and the refine- [refined] uit [it of their manners And it puts the case of Sir H.

Baines, junior of Leeds; Edward Baxter, of Dundee; Dr. Bowring, Joseph Brotherton, M.P.; James Kershaw, M.P. &e. The remaining portraits are chiefly those of the Dii [Ii] Minores [Minor] of the league, many of them likely to be known to posterity only through being enshrined in this picture, -which, in our opinion at least, would be infinitely ere valuable and valued by subscribers and purchasers of the engraving, if the artist had forgotten to assi [ass] them therein a local habitation and a name. This however, was beyond his power; for it was a committee of the league council, who decided as to who should not figure in the painting. However, there is a faithful representation of the leaders of the league, and the sub- [subs] rs, we suppo [support] in if j i cluder [Calder] 'Pee se, ust [st] not complain if it also in- [ins] As to the picture itself, we think it is this very obli- [able- obligation] gation [nation] on the artist to insert a number of these smaller men, that has materially lowered the character and lessened the value of the work, regarded as an historical picture. It has placed the artist in the same difficulty as the painter of the Waterloo Banquet. In both we have a long table, with rows of gentlemen seated on both sides. In both an individual is addressing the assemblage; and as the portraits are the sole point of in- [interest] terest [interest] in both, we have in the league room, as in the banquetting [banquet] hall at Apsley-house, [Aspley-house] a number of gentle- [gentlemen] men seated with their backs to the Spectator, and turning and twisting themselves into all sorts of atti- [attic- attitudes] tudes, [Tues] in order to present their features to his sight. Making due allowance for the necessity thus imposed upon the artist, we think he has been remarkably suc- [such- successful] cessful [useful] in his grouping, and in avoiding, as much as possible, long ranges of heads, like those of the four- [four and] and-twenty [twenty] fiddlers in the song, all ina row. The portrait of the late Mr. John Brooks, and those of Messrs. Paulton, Prentice; W. J. Fox, William Brown, and Colonel Thompson strike us as amongst the best. In several instances, we prefer the engraving to the picture for the likeness, especially in the portraits of Mr. Milner Gibson, M.P. Asa speculation, Mr. Agnew, who, we believe, gave Herbert 1,200 guineas for his picture, would doubtless have done much better, if the engraving could have been published before the fervour af a large class of admirers of the league had had time to cool; for there are doubtless many who in 1847 would have readily purchased the engraving, but who now feel no such inclination. THE Late GLoucESTER [Leicester] MusicaL [Musical] FESTIVAL.-The col- [collection] lection [election] made at the late festival on behalf of the charity was the largest ever known at Gloucester.

WHALE Fisuinc.-A [Issuing.-A] letter from the mate of the Alex- [Alexander] ander, [under] of Dundee, dated the 25th of July, states that seven vessels are expected to have got through the barrier of ice at the top of Melville Bay, viz., the Horne, with four fish; the Pacific, with one; the Joseph Green, clean; the Lord Gambier, clean; the Regalia, clean; the Chieftain, one fish and the American, clean. Seven vessels had come south, viz., the Alexander, clean; the Princess Charlotte, one fish; the Advice, clean; the Jane, one fish; and the St. Andrew, clean. The other three, of which no accounts are sent, are the Truelove, Abram, and Ann, of Hull. It would appear there had only been a partial opening in the barrier, which had again shut, and orevetited [prevented] tho last- [last mentioned] mentioned vessels from getting through. Those that have got through will have a good chance. No mention is made of the vessels sent out in search of Sir John Franklin, ex- [except] cept [Sept] the two Americans, which were then west of the Devil's Thumb. It may reasonably be concluded that Cap- [Captain] tain Penny's and Captain Austin's expeditions had got through Melville Bay early, as otherwise they would have been seen by the whalers.-Aberdeen Herald. REALITY OF 4 DREAM.-A most wonderful circumstance, which a dream has been the means of bringing to light, happened yesterday in thistown. [this town] Mr. Deruzé, [Derive] who died suddenly on Monday last, was supposed to have been a wealthy man, and that his ready money would have amounted to a considerable sum. His effects were taken possession of by a gentleman of this town and a strict and rigorous search instituted for his will, and of course money was eX) to have been met with in his trunks, drawers, desks, &c. The amount found was a mere trifle, we believe not amounting in all to 16. Astonishment was at its height, and it appeared incredible that no more came to light. On Wednesday night, however, a young woman named Annie Waite, of this town, dreamed a dream to the following effect, viz., that ifa [if] e2rtain [certain] escutoire [Esquire] was searched at twelve o'clock yesterday a large quantity of money would be found. This dream was laughed at by some, but it was at last carried to the ears of a gentleman who had the effects of the deceased under his charge, and Pp ing to the place indicated a search was made, and rewarded by the finding of 40 doubloons, and about 30 or upwards of gold two dollar pieces. What makes it more singular is dhat [that] the desk had been searched the day pre- [previous] vious, [pious] but the money was concealed in a back part, and robably [probably] would have remained there for years had it not been for Annie Waite's golden dream.-Montego [dream.-Monte] Bay Onion (Jamaica paper). Suspicious CasE.-An [Case.-An] Italian, who is an exile in France for the active part he took in the insurrection of Rome, has just been arrested under very singular circumstances, A few days ago a banking house of the quarter Feydeau [Feed] re- [received] ceived [received] from a correspondent at Rome directions to pay a sum of about 400f. [f] to a Count de P--. Two days aftera [after] rson [son] presented himself, and stated that he was the Count be was almost blind, and was led by one of his friends. He was called on to prove his identity, which he did by pro- [producing] ducing [during] his passport; he was then asked for his letter of credit, but he said that he had mislaid it. He added that he was to leave the same day for the south to be treated for his eye-sight, and he asked the banker as a favour to spare him the loss of time which the necessity of demanding a new letter of credit would occasion, The man seemed so respectable and his rt so satisfactory at the banker ve the money. Two Nays later the banker was informed Ey a second letter from his correspondent that an ex-lieu- [lieutenant] tenant of Garibaldi was making dupers in France and other countries by passing himself off as the Count de P -. The police immediately arrested the man who received the 400f., [f] and at the same time succeeded in discovering the veritable Count de P--. The latter, on seeing the ex-lieu- [lieutenant] tenant, declared that he knew nothing of him, but the lieu- [lieutenant] tenant swore that he was the veritable Simon Pure and that the other was an impostor. It is not known how the ex- [ex lieutenant] lieutenant could have obtained the information with which he presented himself to the banker. A searching judicial investigation has been commenced. THE LATE FaTAL [Fatal] ACCIDENT ON THE EASTERN COUNTIES stated, in last Saturday's paper, the ter- [te- terrible] rible [rifle] accident at Brentwood, on the Eastern Counties Rail- [Railway] way, by which nine men, labourers working on the line, were run over by the engine, and all killed. An inquest has since been held. The facts of the case, melancholy as it was, lay in a narrow com It ap that the men were engaged ing between the two bridges ; had unloaded the trucks, and that to get out of that the the way while the ballast trucks were moved past they got upon the up-line. While standing there the up-train came them and killed them on the spot. The question then was, whether the driver of the engine had been guilty of neglect or whether, on account of the fog, and con- [considering] sidering [considering] the moderate pace at which he was going, and the other precautions he took, he was to be absolved from blame. The ballast engine was blowing off its steam, which would prevent the men hearing the approach of the up-train. It was stated that the morning was extremely foggy that the pace was between eight and twelve miles an hour that at Shenfield station they whistled, and twice afterwards, as the fog appeared to be thicker. The men who had escaped ap to be able to tell very little. The inquest ended in the jury returning the following ver- [Rev- verdict] dict We find that at onan [anon] at the nine men os Dove i misadventure, but at the same time expr [exp] jane [Jane] that more caution had not been. exercised for the protection of the men employed on the line. NLUCKY [LUCKY] EXPERIMENTS WITH ELECTRICITY IN PaRIs.- [Paris.- Paris] Some Belgian savans [Savings] were engaged the day before yesterday in making meteorological observations on the heights of Belleville. Having raised toa [to] certain height some kites furnished with pointed needles, they drew from the clouds, although the weather was perfectly serene at the time, flashes of electricity similar to those of lightning in a storm. Suddenly one of the gentlemen, says the Patrve, [Patrie] was struck by a and thrown to the ground in a state of insensi- [insensible- insensibility] bility. [debility] He had, it appeared, neglected to hold by the glass handle, which served as a non-conductor, and the fiuid, [Fluid] descending by the cord, struck him. He was soon after restored to animation, but his right arm remained paralysed, and there is a doubt whether he will ever recover the perfect use of it.-Galiguanis [it.-galvanise] Messenger. Exprosion [Explosion] aT THE BirMincHaM [Birmingham] Proor [Poor] House.-This establishment is in existence under an order of parliament, for the purpose of testing the quality and safety a gun- [gun barrels] barrels previously to their being admitted into i itary [Italy] stores or issued for public use. Some hundreds ou- [thousands] sands pass through this ordeal in the course of the year. The extreme danger of the work here performed may part be judged of by its nature, and by those terrific ene a of overcharged and unproved barrels to which the abi [ab] ants of Birmingham are accustomed to listen every hour o . On Monday last an explosion took place of bar- [Baron] oe had bean loaded previous to being fired, by ing which the root of the building was blown off, and the outer walls completely destroyed. Two men, in what is technically called ramming the barrels, were severely injured, and are lying in the Birmingham Hospital, The done te adjoining property is described as consider- [considerable] able, but the cause ot the accident does not appear to have been ascertained. siastic [sciatic] meeting of the friends of Wesleyan reform was held in the school-room, near to Messrs Geo. Crosland and Sons' factory, Lockwood. Parties were admitted by ticket, and we are informed that great care was taken that only members of the society should be present, so that the meeting might be taken as a fair criterion of the feeling entertained on this movement in that locality, and as an indication of their views on the important question of stopping the supplies. A little after six the room began to fill, and by half-past to seven every available space was occupied. The gentlemen on the platform were principally local preachers, and in the body of the meeting we observed a large number of office bearers and other influential Wesleyan Methodists. The proceedings of the meeting were opened with singing and prayer, after which Mr. William Kaye was called to preside. In a short introductory address, The said it had long been his opinion that there needed some reform in their laws, in order to make them more in accordance witlr [Whitley] the spirit of the. age, and the principles of the New Testament. He had long been convinced there was something wrong in the administration of their affairs. The first reasons he had for coming to this conclusion were derived from the ruthless manner in which the Rev. James Caughey [Caught] was called away from amongst them. (Hear, hear, and cries of Shame. It was then that he discovered there was a centralised power that was likely to destroy indi- [India- individual] vidual [individual] judgment, and action, and feeling-in fact, to up- [uproot] root those very principles for which they struggled 300 years ago-the right of. private judgment.

(Loud applause.) He had said he would set the example to this effect, and not another penny of his should go to Methodism until they obtained reform. (Vehement applause.) Mr. Frank VICKERMAN seconded the resolution. A Strancer [Stranger] in the body of the room, amidst great confusion, asked permission to make a remark before the resolution was put, which being granted, he ascended the platform, and submitted to the meeting whether they were not about to commit themselves to a rash act. ( No, no, and disapprobation.) What would become of hundreds in England, Ireland, and Scotland, in the meantime If Conference had done wrong, was that any reason why the people should do wrong. (Dis- [Disapprobation] approbation.) He was well acquainted with societies, and he had generally found that those who were most violent did the least. He wished them well, but he thought they were doing an unwise act-( no, no )-- and would many of them change their opinions in a short time. (Cries of We shall never, and confusion.) Mr. B. L. of Huddersfield, wished to address the meeting, but the audience refused to hear him until all the resolutions were done with. After a few remarks from Mr. Hanson and Mr. R. Tinker in reply to the remarks of the last speaker, the chairman put the reso- [rose- resolution] lution, [Lotion] which was carried with acclamation by an over- [overwhelming] whelming majority, some half-dozen hands only being held up against it. Mr. Hovsnron, [Hovering] in a brief speech, moved the next resolution. rance [France] displayed by the Wesleyan Conference, more especially in 1849, he felt there was something ve seriously wrong. It wanted reforming-but let their contest be a war of principles and not a war of mere avoid these things. Much had been said as though they were waging a war against their individual ministers on a subject which had now become very popular amongst reformers-he referred to the stopping of the supplies. (Hear, hear.) They had nothing against the men-it was in their corporate capacity, and not in their indivi- [divine- individual] dual capacity, that the ministers met with the opposition of the reformers. (Hear, hear.) After apologising for the absence of Mr. Alderman Schofield, of Sheffield, who was detained in consequence of the death of his mother, the Chairman concluded by calling upon Mr. Josepa [Joseph] DonKERSLEY, [Donkersley] who moved the first reso- [rose- resolution] lution- [Lotion- Lotion] That this meeting is deeply convinced, from the conduct and spirit of the late Conference, from its rejection of all conciliatory overtures, and especially from its total disre- [desire- disregard] gard [guard] of the memorials, signed by thousands of the office- [office bearers] bearers and tens of thousands of the members, that the most decided measures are necessary on the part of Wes- [West- Wesleyan] leyan [lean] reformers, to carry out their object. He said he could not express the mingled emotions and the painful feelings that he felt under existing circum- [circus- circumstances] stances; but he had been compelled to take his stand against the doings of Conference. The speaker then referred to the various circumstances connected with the proceedings against the Revs. James Bromley, 'T. Rowland, and Dr. Beaumont, eliciting loud expressions of disapprobation at the various acts of Conference in reference to those gentlemen, and resumed by saying that the reformers had failed in all their constitu- [constitution- constitutional] tional [national] measures-their memorials had been spurned. 1 Peace might have been restored by timely concessions, but that day had gone by, and they would not now abate anything-they would have reform. (Vehement ap- [applause] plause.) [clause] By all means in their power they would carry out the objects of this resolution. (Hear, hear.) But for this they would want money. (Repeated cries, We will let you have money. In the next place they must be all united. We will, lad. They must endeavour to reform themselves; for it ill became reformers to talk about reform when they were themselves corrupt, and would not bear investigation. (Hear, hear.) Mr. WILLIAM CHaRLEswortu [Charles] briefly seconded the resolution. Mr. Joun [John] Hanson, in rising, said, these were times to try men's souls-(A Voice- And a man's principles too )-as a humble friend of his had observed the other day-these were times to try what sort of stuff men are made of. (Hear, hear.) Since he had the privilege of appearing before the meeting of Wesleyan Reformers at Slaithwaite he had had to pass their Methodistical [Methodist] ordeal. oh, and applause.) He would not that this controversy should dwindle into mere personal squabbles. He assured them he was disposed to take much, to cover much, to endure much, sooner than this war of Christian principles should dwindle into mere personal charge and recrimination but he did feel it n a8 an honest and Christian man-as a con- [conscientious] scientious [conscientious] reformer, that he should explain his present position, especially in reference to the position that he lately occupied on the circuit. (Hear, hear.) He should appeal to the local brethren who were present at the quarterly meeting held the previous day. Their super- [superintendent] intendent, [intended] referring to his (Mr. H.'s) case in the local preachers' meeting-whether he intended or not-made & false impression upon the minds of the brethren. ( Shame, shame. If he did not intend it-and he i should show them that he did not-there was no shame in it. The superintendent had said that Brother Hanson, like a honest man, had resigned his position. Now, this made a false impression. He did not resign, in the ordi [ord] acceptation of the term. He rejoiced to say that he had the superintendent's authority to affirm that that gentleman did not intend to make such an impression. The reason why they did not, would not, acknowledge him on the quarter day was, because he would not cease to be a reformer. (Hear, hear, and applause.) The resolution he had to move was as follows - That this meeti [time] rotests [protest] against the arbitrary and cruel conduct y the Wesleyan conference, in the expulsion of the Rev. James Bromley; the degradation of the Rev. Thomas Rowland the censure on the Rev. Dr. Beaumont the unkind and unnecessary removal of the, Rev. J. C. George, and the unchristian and undignified treatment of other ministers suspected of sympathy with the reform movement, considering such a course of proce- [price- procedure] dure [sure] fatal to the best interests of the Church, and alike opposed to every principle of civil and religious liberty. Their war was one of principle-it was not a question of controversy amongst men as individuals, (Hear, hear.) The speaker then went on at considerable length into the circumstances connected with the arrival of the Rev. James Caughey [Caught] in this country, and his sub- [subsequent] sequent expulsion, during which the meeting expressed their disapprobation of the manner in which that gen- [gentleman] tleman [gentleman] was treated, and concluded by asking them if they had had the power they were now seeking, would they have allowed such proceedings. (Cries of No, no, and applause.) Mr. LEEs [Lees] seconded the resolution. It appeared to him that the authority and the laws of fallible men were to be substituted for the authority and laws of the Son of God. They had seen something of what Con- [Conference] ference, [France] with its infallibility, was capable of. (Hear, hear.) Their position on that night was on no account to be envied; but if they saw evils existing in the church if they found a body of men exercising autho- [author- authority] rity [city] and coercion over their Christian brethren-then, as men and as Christians, it was their duty to speak out. (Applause.) After drawing a comparison between the doings of Conference in Wesley's days, and the proceed- [proceedings] ings of the present time, alluding to Dr. Clarke in pas- [passing] sing, the speaker said the evils of the present system were obvious. He could only say, in conclusion, that as men upholding the name of Christians it became their duty to suppress the evils which they found were growing upon them and destroying their liberty. (Ap- [Applause] plause.) [clause] The late proceedings of Conference were un- [unconstitutional] constitutional, were opposed to the laws of their coun- [con- country] try, were contrary to that liberty which they professed as free men, as Englishmen. (Hear, hear.) Far be it from them to speak personally against their ministers- [ministers they] they opposed them as the agents of Conference. Let them go on perseveringly, and this object would be accomplished. (Applause.) Mr. RoBeERts [Roberts] moved the next resolution - That this meeting, although dee ly interested in the pro- [progress] gress [grass] of Wesleyan Methodism, an ving [vine] strong attach- [attachment] ment [men] personally to many minisiers, [ministers] is ly convinced that the assumption and the acts of the Conference are pal- [palpably] pably [ably] opposed to the authority of the great Head of the Church, at variance with the design and constitution of the early Christian churches, and practically opposed to the genius and spread of Christianity and regrets that it can- [cannot] not conscientiously contribute, as heretofore, to the main- [maintenance] tenance [tenants] of a system so opposed to the spirit of Christian truth, and therefore recommends that the contributions to all Wesleyan funds be at once diverted to another channel, until the Conference shall meet the just and scriptural claims of the people. The speaker complained of the manner in which their conciliatory overtures had been met by the Conference, and finding themselves refused a hearing, they had come to the painful decision of stopping the supplies. (Loud applause.) They would be told by the ministers that as Methodists they had liberty and power, but he would ask them to point him out where that liberty and power existed. It was true they had their leaders' but if the decisions of these meetings did not meet the approval of the preachers they were carried to a higher court and reversed, thus completely nullify- [nullifying] ing the p dings of the minor court. (Disapproba- [Disapprobation- Disapprobation] tion.) [ion] The law of 1835 went to the very tree of Metho- [Method- Methodist] distic [district] liberty, and not only pincket [picket] off its superfluous branches, but stripped off its foliage, and unless it could be rescinded would destroy the very roots. (Hear, hear, and applause.) He maintained then that the sup- [supplies] plies ought to be stopped. (Hear, hear.) Because Con- [Conference] ference [France] took it as a grand test whether they were satis- [sates- satisfied] fied [field] or not with Methodism as it is. He was aware that some would turn round upon him and say Will you not support our ministers in our home circuit. No, no. He had nothing personal against Messrs. West, Learoyd, or Knaggs; but they dealt with them in their personalities. (Hear, hear.) Let them endeavour to' fro CO That this meeting pledges itself to the principle of no Ty secesion [decision] and strongly urges upon the people patiently to retain their membership during this painful struggle never- [nevertheless] theless, [helpless] whenever this course is found to be impracticable m [in] numerous expulsions or other local circumstances, this meeting would consider such parties justified in taking steps for conducting separate public worship by the local reachers, [teachers] and all other religious services common to ethodism. [Methodist] Mr. JosepH [Joseph] THORNTON seconded it. Mr. B. L. Saw, by the permission of the chairman, then rose, and expressed his regret that he had not been allowed to say a few words on the resolution committing the mecting [meeting] to the principle of stopping the supplies. before it had been passed. He had great confidence in the honour of the worthy chairman and the various speakers, nevertheless he believed them to be in-a grievous error in the manner by which they proposed to accomplish their object. No, no. He thought that some reform-he did not like the term at present, owing to the extreme meaning that was being attached it-but he was one who sought in a legitimate and constitutional way certain alterations, certain reforms. (Hear, hear.) His quarrel was against the modus operandi-against [operate-against] the unchristian way in which the reformers have expressed their opinions. No, no, and disapprobation.) If he took the liberty to suggest that any of them had done wrong, he trusted it would be received in charity. They must seek their reforms in a Christian way, and not scatter their chapels, and put an extinguisher upon their ministers by stopping the supplies. Show us a better mode. The Christian churches were entitled to their support. They shan't [san't] have it. The means they were about to adopt were not scriptural means-they were not consistent vith with] the spirit of Christ. Prove it. Mr. Shaw, after a few more remarks, sat down, amidst some confusion. Several speakers rose to reply, but the CHAIRMAN claimed the privilege, and said that there was a deep rooted feeling in the locality on this subject, and if he and his friends had not taken the matter up, others would have done. All the blame should not be laid on them; for they were only the safety valves. (Hear; hear.) If he was not allowed to advocate reform he would not remain a Methodist to be any man's slave. (Hear, hear.) Thousands had left in disgust, and gone to other churches. Mr. spoke only of the natural consequences of stopping the supplies. The Cuarrman.-I [Juryman.-I] believe that if the Wesleyan Con- [Conference] ference [France] was to perish to-morrow, the cause of Christ would still stand and prosper. (Applause.) The meeting became very much confused, three or four gentlemen rose to speak, but the Chairman closed the meeting a little after ten o'clock, by giving out- [out praise] Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Oe -- SouTH [South] NOTTINGHAMSHIRE AGRICULTURAL ASSOCIATION. -The annual show of this association was held on Tuesday, at Newark, the exhibition of stock was good, and theshow [the show] of implements better than has ever been known in this lace. The show of short-horns was excellent, but of south- [Southdown] owns bad but upon the whole it was deemed an extremel [extreme] good exhibition. At the annual dinner T. B. T. Hild- [Hold- Hilda] ard, [ad] Esq., M.P., presided, and, after alluding to the hope- [hopelessness] 'lessness [lessons] of any further appeals to parliament for relief, pro- [proceeded] ceeded [needed] to express it as his belief that the only way in which the difficulties of the agricultural community could be remedied would be for a better feeling to take place be- [between] tween landlord and tenant, as a commencement to which he was of opinion that the landlords should meet their tenants by lowering their rents. For himself he would do this most willingly, because it was an act of duty towards his tenantry, who, he was convinced, would not be able to meet the times unless such assistance were afforded to them. At the same time he pointed out the benefits which would arise by the farmers employing as many labourers as they ossibly [possible] could, which would be a means of improving their farms, and keeping their labourers and their families from becoming burdens to them in the workhouse. At this juncture Mr. Chowler, [Howler] one of the Protectionist tenant- [tenant farmers] 'farmers, who has been starring recently at Protectionist meetings, exclaimed, It's all very well, that is; but how can we employ the labourers if we hav'nt [have'nt] money to pay 'em with Mr. Hildyard coolly remarked, that in civilized society no gentleman would think of rudely interrupting a speaker, but would wait until he had finished what he had to say, and if he had anything to assert in opposition, he would take that opportunity of expressing his opinion. This rebuff was received wth [with] evident satisfaction by the meeting, and Mr. Chowler [Howler] was literally shut up. This was the only incident calculated to relieve what, in other respects, was but a dull display. A LIONESS FOR THE QUEEN.-Among the passengers by the Madrid, which arrived on Wednesday at Southampton with the Peninsular mail, was a fine young lioness, about a twelvemonth old, from Lisbon, and which has arrived in this country as a present from the Queen of Portugal to the Queen of England. The lioness was in a large cage on deck, and was so tame that its keeper used to go into the cage during the voyage to play and wrestle with the animal. CaPTURE [Capture] OF JOSEPH ADY.-On [DAY.-On] Tuesday afternoon, James Bradley, a most active officer connected with the Mansion-house, succeeded, by stratagem, in capturing the notorious Joseph Ady. [Day] Bradley lodged his prisoner in the Giltspur-street [Gilt spur-street] Compter, [Compete] on a warrant for 19 3s. for postage on upwards of 2,000 returned letters, the pro- [property] perty [petty] of the Postmaster-General. PROSPECTIVE LIBERATION OF KossuTH.-The [South.-The] twelve months for which Turkey engaged to keep a strict surveil- [survive- surveillance] lance over Kossuth and his companions have now expired. Turkey proposes to procure a vessel and to send the refu- [ref- refugees] gees ether to England or to America. Vienna, however, is alarmed and objects, representing that further detention is necessary. In this dilemma the Divan appeals to France and England. EXTRAORDINARY GALE OFF LIVERPOOL, AND Loss OF Lire.-On Saturday morning, an extraordinary gale oc- [occurred] curred [cured] at Liverpool, which for a season threatened utter destruction to a number of small boats then out upon the water. A great number of these gigs left the port, as is their custom, early in the morning, the weather being per- [perfectly] fectly [perfectly] calm, with the wind north-east. About nine o'clock the wind changed, and shortly afterwards a strong gale sprang up from the N.N.W. as instantaneously as a flash of lightning. The boats were tossed about like shells on the water, and it was only with infinite pains and labour that they were preserved from being all upset. Several were capsized in spite of every precaution, and the risk of life was for some time very imminent. Owing, however, to the most extraordinary and praiseworthy exertions, only one life was sacrificed, a young man named Gordon, who has left a wife and family of little children to deplore his Dr. NoLan's [Nolan's] CHAPEL AFFAIRS.-The affairs of Ducie [Duce] Chapel have again been overhauled before the public in msequence [sequence] of an action brought by the Present school- [schoolmaster] master of Ducie [Duce] Chapel Schools, to recover from the former secre [secure] the sum of 10, received by the latter whilst holding office. There was nothing very interesting in the case itself, but great excitement was occasioned by Dr. Nolan himself being examined as a witness, in the course of which the recent tales of scandal were mostly re-opened. When Dr. Nolan left the court he was hooted and hissed by the assembled crowd. THE APPROACHING EDUCATIONAL CONFERENCE. --The announcement by the Lancashire Public School Association of the conference of friends of unsectarian education, pro- [proposed] posed to be held on the 30th October, is producing a satis- [sates- satisfactory] factory result in Manchester, as well as throughout the country; many gentlemen who have hitherto approved, without identifying themselves with the movement, having recently enrolled themselves as subscribers and members of the association. Declarations of sympathy with the object of the association and approval of its plan, continue to be received by the secretary, daily, from all parts of the country; at present we only subjoin an illustrative extract from a letter from Dr. Carstairs, of Buxton -' I have had to do with so many educational movements which have proved abortive, by the crotchets of their respective pro- [promoters] moters, [voters] that Itook [Took] time to consider the principles of the Lancashire Public School Association before I could give in my adherence to them, and having now done so, I am re- [rejoiced] joiced [joined] to see so good a cause in such able hands, The time has come when a national movement should be made, and if the Lancashire Association decline taking the initiative, others will certainly do so. I know the difficulties of the subject well enough to be aware that its agitation will be an arduous duty to whoever undertakes it. It is not a knife and fork question, like the corn-laws; nor is it a personal one, like the suffrage. The parties most requiring it are the most callous, and to bring the necessity home to them will exact a perseverance greater than any other movement of theday. [that] ' ' Every year pees the question more forcibly upon our attention, and if the movement is delayed till the proper time arrives, it will be like Felix's second audience to St. Paul, and will never arrive. Under these circumstances, I consider that every friend of educa- [Edgar- education] tion [ion] should enrol himself under your bann [Ann] hear.) [C] were ret [re] le for the acts of the Conference. (Hear, corporate capacity, and he contended that these men rouge had done that which was anti-' indifference of the multitudes. If . er, and take a decided course inst the enmity of one and the can leave home at the time, I shall have conference. The annual exhibition of this society was held on Wed- [Wed adjoining] adjoining, at Almondbury, and presented many features of interest and gratulation. [congratulation] It may not be out of place to observe that the object of this society is to extend a desire- [desire reduced] reduced into practice-amongst the artizan [artisans] population of that neighbourhood, for the cultivation of garden allot- [allotments] ments, [rents] and to create by such means a love for agricultural pursuits, as a relief from the more laborious and confining toil of the factory or the workshop. Such an object, and unqualified approval. Thespecimens [The specimens] exhibited onthis [on this] occasion- [occasion the] the competitors being allotees [alters] limited to a specified distance-did not present comparison with the more extended exhibitions to which we have of late drawn attention. They came before us as the productions of the cottage and field garden, cultivated by men who, in a great measure, have been ignorant of garden pursuits, and, as such, bespoke a high degree of care and skill. Though this class forms the principal feature of the society, honorary competitors are allowed to enter for show, and, through this means, the committee succeed in considerably improving the characver [character] of their exhibition by bringing forward miscellaneous articles of a far superior character-whilst they do net place their humble exhibitors in a less favourable position. Under the head of honorary productions, we found the school-room gracefully arranged with very beautiful speci- [specie- specimens] mens [men] of flowers, fruits, and vegetables. It isnow [snow] becoming somewhat late for exhibitions of this character, but not- [notwithstanding] withstanding this circumstance, we noticed with great pleasure the fruit and vegetables. The dahlias and two fuschias [fuchsias] (one shown by Mr. D. White, of Kirkheaton, the other by Mr. John Armitage) were deserving of attention. A plate of peaches from W. W. Battye, Esq., a dish of magnum bonum [bonus] plums from John Dougill, Esq., and one of dark plums from Mr. Roebuck, were of a very superior quality. A beautiful minature [nature] garden-with cottage, pig stye, [style] out-houses, and everything pertaining to a farm allot- [allotment] ment, [men] from the tenant and his wife, down to wax pigs and potatoes-was designed and exhibited by Miss Mary Ann Eddison, of Thorpe. It displayed great taste in its design, and skill in its manipulation. The productions of the allotees, [alters] arranged in a tent adjoining the school, were generally noticed with marks of praise by the company ; and two beautiful cauliflowers, shewn by Samuel Buckley, obtained special attention. The potatoes were very large, remarkably clean-skinned, and apparently free from all disease. e other articles, though not calling for special remark, were of a quality reflecting very high credit on the exhibitors. Leaving this department, we passed through the pens for igs, [is] running up to the left at right angles with the school. the right were arranged the allotee [alter] class-the honorary exhibitors occupying the opposite side. We are sure it must have been a source of very great pleasure to every visitor to find the working men exhibiting animals of suc [such] fine quality andsize, [and size] and they could not fail to draw favourable comparisonsas [comparisons as] to the improved taste which the last few years has presented in this respect. We do not profess to be judges of pigs, or to critically understand their points, but we shall not err in speaking highly of the small store pig of William Dalton, and of the large breed from the store of William Sykes; in the honorary class, asow [as] of the small breed, shown by J. Dougill, Esq., and a small black sow, the property of B. N. R. Batty, Esq., were generally ad- [admired] mired, and the store pigs of Mr. M. Lodge and Mr. W. Midgley, were objects of special interest. In the whole there were seventy three pigs exhibited. The school-room and tent, were tastefully decorated with festoons and globes, under the care of Messrs. Pontey, the principal labour devolving upon Mr. D. ite. [it] The occasion was celebrated asa gala day in Almond- [Almondbury] bury, and the villagers and gentle folks assembled in their best attire, and wore their most winning and gracious smiles; and as the merry peals rang forth from the Old Church, mingled with the strains of a brass band, the scene presented was one of beauty, lively interest, and happiness. There was a large influx of visitors during the day, but we are happy in bearing our testimony to the quiet and order which prevailed throughout the village. Mr. David White, from Messrs. Pontey's, assisted by Mr. John Armitage, acted as curator, and the following gentlemen officiated as judges -Honorary class, Mr. G. Raisebeck, [Roebuck] Huddersfield, and Mr. Frank Scott, Kirk- [Kirkheaton] heaton [Heaton] allottee class, Mr. Thomas Dunn, Lockwood, and Mr. W. Lockwood, gardener, Fenay-bridge. For the pigs -John Mallinson, Esq., Thickhollins, [Collins] and Mr. T. J. Wigney, [Wine] Huddersfield, with Mr. Labrey, [Labourer] of Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field, as umpire. HARVEST HOME SUPPER. Shortly after seven o'clock in the evening, on returmming [returning] to the school-room, we found the tables extending along the centre and sides, loaded with ample provision, and the guests entering heartily into the gastrionomic [gastronomic] pleasures of the evening. Amongst the company we observed the Rev. Lewis Jones, vicar of Almondbury, Rev. John Haigh, Huddersfield; Rev. J. M. Maxfield, Marsden Rev. Mr. Gamlyn, [Gallon] Bossall Rev. Mr. Wardroper, Rev. Mr. Montriou, [Ontario] Rev. Solomon Briggs, Rev. A. Easther, B. N. R. Batty, Esq., W. W. Battye, Esq. J. Nowell, Esq., B. Farrand, Esq., J. Mallinson, Esq., J.C. Fenton, Esq., J. Dougill, Esq., J. Bennett, Esq., and a large party of gentlemen from Hud- [HUD- Huddersfield] dersfield. [Huddersfield] On the removal of the cloth a number of ladies joined the company, and the evening was passed right merrily, the speaking being interspersed with songs and glees. The chair was occupied by B. N. R. Barry, Esq., as the president, supported on the right by the Revs. Lewis Jones, and J. M. Maxfield, and on the left by John Nowell, Esq., and the Rev. Mr. Gamlyn. [Gallon] The report on the allotments and a portion of the list of prizes was then read, and received with great applause. ALLOTTEES AND COTTAGERS' PRIZE LIST.

After the reading of the prizes,on the call of the President, JOHN NOWELL, Esq., addressed a few remarks to the allotees, [alters] regretting that the report was in some respects not so favourable as could have been wished, but he trusted that in another year there woulkl [would] be no grounds for com- [complaint] plaint. (Hear, hear.) He was sure they felt highly honoured by the presence uf [of] so many clergymen and gentle- [gentlemen] men from all parts of the country. (Hear.) They oweda [owed] debt of thanks to the trustees of the Wormald charity for the manner in which these gentlemen had come forward, and granted allotmepts, [allotment] and as there were four of the trustees present they coil not do better than avail them- [themselves] selves of the opportunity. Joun [John] Dovuciit, [Deficit] Esq., gave The Trustees of the Wormald Charity, which was received with three times three, The CHAIRMAN returned thanks. He was sure the Trustees would do all they could to accommodate the labouring population of this district. He was sure they had only one wish and that was that the interest of that charity should be appropriated to do good, and instead of giving it away in five or six shillings at a time, they could not do better than let the land out to the parties for allot- [allotments] ments. [rents] (Hear, hear.) The Rev. J. M. MAXFIELD madean [made] excellent speechon [speech on] the general benefits to be derived from the cultivation of allot- [allotments] ments, [rents] and said that he had alwaysbeenahearty supporterof [supporter of] thesystem. [the system] Lierememberedsome twenty-five yearsago [year sago] when the system of garden allotments was first introduced into a small township on the estates and under the patronage of that excellent nobleman and landlord, the present Earl Fitzwilliam, then Lord Milton. (Hear, hear.) This was the tirst [first] time the experiment was tried in the north of England, and the system had now been extended from township to township, with the most beneficial results. (Hear, hear.) At the present time the system had been introduced. into the manufacturing districts, and that which was in feebleness was now being carried out in triumph. Why was this Because the materials of mind and body had been brought to bear upon the question of spade husbandry. (Hear.) Because there was intelligence and industry amongst their artisans, which had induced them to lay hold of the land as their savings' bank. (Applause.) He had long thought there was great good to be derived from this principle, carried out with judgment, diligence, and skill. An inducement had been held out for the more skilled cul- [cl- cultivation] tivation [ovation] of these allotments, in the patronage of the clergy and gentry but he would suggest a higher and more prac- [pray- practical] tical [critical] motive-in the fact that the ground would yield a rich profit to themselves, their families, and their dependants. (Applause.) It had often been said, in objection to this system, that the working classes wanted to get hold of all the land in the country and keep it-he did not believe the slander. (Hear.) The whole of his experience amongst the operatives in this part of the country, and he had had many oppertunities [opportunity] of judging of their motives and integrity, led him to the conclusion that no such feeling was mixed up with their considerations on this great question. So far from it in this part they found the operative anxious to be allowed to reni [rent] a few Rarehes [Rares] of land in their respec- [respect- respective] tive [tie] townships. (Cheers.) They could not confer a greater beon [been] upon the working classes, than to divide their fields and let them to those industrious men who would farm the land to so excellent a purpose. (Hear.) The other day whilst passing through his parish a little boy said te him 'Sir, there is almost a pig at every door. He con- [congratulated] gratulated [congratulated] hinsself [himself] on such a circumstances, and would be happy to see two pigs at every man's door. (Laughter and hear.) In conclusion, the Rev. gentleman, said he had heard of the Radicalism and Chartism of Almondbury, and now he saw their barricatles. [barricades] They were beautiful he loved to fight under such barricades as those-they were barri- [Barry- barricades] cades [cases] of peace and unity and beauty. (Hear hear.) They were evidence of an advancement in a right direction. He rejoiced to be allowed to mix in such means as these-he knew their tendency and effect were to draw them nearer and nearer together and make them feel that they were all members of one family. He rejoiced to see so many smili [smile] faces around him, and hoped to meet them at their next exhibition. (Loud applause). Mr. THoMas [Thomas] WouDHEAD, [Woodhead] an allotee [alter] made some very interesting statements as to the benetits [benefit] he had derived from his allotment. He thought he should be enabled to obtain from seven to ten sacks of potatoes-two sacks of flour, and feed two sides of bacon. (Hear, hear.) In answer to Mr. Nowell, he could live with a tamily [family] of eight children two or three months on its produce. (Elear.) [Clear] Mr. JOHN ARMITAGE bore his testimony to the beneficial results ensuing from the system and the Chairman then called upon The Rev. Mr. GAMLYN, [GALLON] who expressed his great pleasure at being present on the occasion. He derived so much pleasure when he joined them last year, that he had made up his mind to again take part in their proceedings. (Hear.) Aiter [After] referring to the Exhibition of 1851, the rev. gentleman said he fully concurred in the remarks which had fallen from tie previous speakers, and was satisfied as to the benefits which were to be derived from the allotment SyS- [SS- System] tem. [te] It was an important matter to have two or three months' provisions in store in the event of being thrown out of employment. (Hear, hear.) periods of full employment the working men would derive additional plea- [pleasure] sure in cultivating their grounds, whilst their wives were cultivating their flowers, and their families reaping the benefit. (Cheers.) It was a system which ought to be encouraged, and could not fail to be productive of the greatest benefits-both physical, moral, and he might ven- [venture] ture, [true] as a clergyman, almost to say spiritual-for they could not contemplate the goodness of the Almighty in making this provision for them without instinctively raising their thoughts to the Creator. (Hear, hear.) These societies fused all party feeliags, [feeling] whilst they proved their mutual dependence upon each other-and they learnt here that the best way to assist the poor man was to enable him to assist himself. (Cheers.) Before he sat down he would observe, that he was authorised to express the pleasure which the Earl of Dartmouth took in the existence of this society, and the noble Earl had requested him (Mr, (chee) [cheer] to convey his best wishes for their future suceess, [success] eers. [sere] The CHAIRMAN gave The Earl of Dartmouth, which was received with acclamation, followed by The Messrs. Pontey, of Kirkheaton, and their valuable servant Mr. White. Mr. Pontey retumed [returned] thanks, and was very happy to hear that their services had been so acceptable. ; The health of the worthy President was given with three times three, and musical honours, after which the company broke up about ten o'clock, ----- .
