LOCKWOOD BAPTIST MISSIONS AND SUNDAY-SCHOOL TEA ee . ing for the promotion of foreign win ae eon [on] with the Baptist church in Lock- [Lockwood] word, was held on Monday afternoon last, in the school- [school] rou [our] The Rev. A. Saker, missionary from Africa, was t, as a deputation from the parent society, and Pent other friends of the cause we observed the BRe s. [Be s] Messrs. Barker, Holmes, Thomas, and Stocks. The yoom [room] was well filled by an attentive audience, who lis- [is- listened] gened [gene] with great interest to the addresses delivered. The Rev. Mr. Barker, as resident minister, was ealied [lied] to the chair, and opened the proceedings with sgmging [smoking] and prayer, after which he offered a few prelimi- [prelim- preliminary] wary remarks, and was followed by the Revs. Messrs. Holmes, Hirst, and Thomas, the latter of whom made a wery [were] agreeable speech, and succeeded in putting his amdence [audience] into a most excellent humour. The Rev. Mr. Stocks, of Salendine Nook, delivered a wesy [West] interesting speech, and expressed his pleasure in saceting [seceding] the friends of Baptist missions on that occasion. it was, he continued, a settled point with them now, that the cause of missions was the cause of God, but he was very fearful lest they should become satisfied with akimd [amid] of cold heartless orthodoxy on this subject. Their fathers Fuller, Sutcliffe, and others, had satisfied Shem as to the theory of the thing; but was it not possi- [poss- possible] ble [be] they might become contented with a mere theoretical wiew [view] of the question-resting satisfied, as it were, with the missionary character, such character being destitute ef all power. (Hear, hear.) The Baptist Missionary Society ought not to be abandoned by them. They should not forget that it was to the honour of their enomination nomination] to lead the way in the missionary cause, snd [and] to found the very first missionary station. Their ndependent independent] friends had disputed that point with them for a time, but after a little examination admitted that the Baptist were the first to take the lead in this great and good undertaking. (Hear.) They might require improvements, and he thought they did, in the Baptist Missionary Society, but he would not refuse his support to the principle because the machinery was slightly out ef order. (Hear.) The worthy Cuarrman [Juryman] expressed his concurrence in the views advanced by Mr. Stocks, and then called upon The Rev. A. Saker to address the meeting. The rev. gentleman, who is labouring under severe indispo- [Indies- indisposition] sition [sit ion] caused by his missionary labours in Africa, delivered a most interesting speech on the subject of African missions, and detailed at length the obstacles and difficulties with which a missionary in that part of the world has to contend. Africa, he said, was a large ecaniry, [canary] extending thousands of miles east and west, and south. From time, he was about to say, azimost [almost] immemorial, certainly for centuries, the white aman [man] of England had been in the habit of passing along the western shores of that country, and wherever he had stayed he had sought to entrap the poor defenceless Eatives, [Natives] taking them captives across the mighty waters and there confined them in hopeless slavery. That system had left its marks upon the country, and now they might travel all down its western coasts and dis- [discover] gover [over] nought but desolation and silence and death. If they wished to find the inhabitants that still eccupied [occupied] that amazing land they must pass through the skirting forests, and trackless deserts, and then after travelling for days, ever and anon they would come upon the inhabitants, enshrouded as it were, in their ambrosial woods, whose hab- [han- habitation] could only be distinguished from the sur- [Sir- surrounding] rounding forests by the smoke curling upwards towards kkeaven. [heaven] (Hear, hear.) Here they would find inhabi- [inhabit- inhabitants] tants [ants] in thousands, in tens and hundreds of thousands, far from the approach of the white man. The British government had decided with kind feelings to do some- [something] thing to stop the barbarous system of African slavery, and to allow the natives to live in their own land and ealtivate [alternative] it, but their efforts had failed, and ever would fail (Hear, hear.) The rev. gentleman gave a rapid sketch of the first pioneering labours of the Baptist Missionary Society-their establishment at Clarence- [Clarence] the sickly nature of the climate-the almost insuperable difficulties with which they had to contend in the ig- [ignorance] norance, [ignorance] cruelty, and vindictiveness of the inhabitants, and related many deeply interesting incidents connected with the missionarys' [missionary] lab.urs [lab.us] in an heathen country, referring more particularly to the Revs. Messrs. Merrick, Newhbegin, [Beginning] Fuller, and Johnson (a native teacher.) Speaking of the character of the inhabitants amongst whom he wasspecially [was specially] called to labour, Mr. Sakersaid [Seaside] they received him with great apparent pleasure at first, but he soon learnt that this pleasure arose from an idea of plunder, for they almost immediately commenced all sorts of depredations upon the little store in his posses- [possession] gion, [Gin] and in a short time left him almost destitute. With such a constancy were the depredations committed by the inhabitants that his wife had frequently to it and watch during the time he was sleeping and vice wersaz. [Warsaw] They thought that to rob the white man was all right, and this continued not for a month only but for two or three years, during which he was obliged frequently to send to the native chief for a breakfast. Still he remained, notwithstanding that his brethren said he must give it up. He tried to raise schools, and visited place after place, day after day sometimes they got an attendance of one, some- [sometimes] times ten, sometimes twenty, sometimes forty. The boys would come early in the morning to school, and after sitting perhaps five minutes, they would say, Well, we must go; black boy can't sit too long. Where will you go The boys replied, We want some breakfast, and off they would set to the river to eatch [each] fish, or go to their neighbours and steal yam, for their fathers and mothers never provided anything for them. If he attempted to teach them to read, they would say, If you want black boy read the beok, [book] learn him all once-he do not like always aa,bb. With such obstacles as these he had to contend; but when the boys obtained a knowledge of a few words as-be be, go go, they became deeply interested, and soon accomplished a knowledge of the language, and then began to entertain a great antipathy to their own. (Hear.) Everything around began to wear a promising aspect-they had got schools and a chapel in course of erection, when his health failed, and with much sorrow he had left the field of his labours to come home to recruit his health. If he had ten lives he would give them all to Africa; but no, he could not, he had only one, but would devote it to the enlightenment of the poor benighted heathen of that country. (Hear, hear.) A collection was then made, amounting to 5, after which the meeting adjourned for a short time, until the tables and other arrangements were completed for holding the teachers' annual tea meeting. On re-assem- [re-assume- assembling] bling upwards of 200 sat down to a most excellent plain tea, presided over by the ladies counected [connected] with the school and the congregation. During the evening, which was passed in a most agreeable manner, short addresses were delivered by the Revs. Messrs. Barker, Stocks, and Thomas, and Messrs. Crosland, Beaumont, Whitaker, Sharp, A. Crowther, and other teachers con- [connected] nected [connected] with the school. The proceedings of the day terminated about nine o'clock, when the company dis- [dispersed] persed, [perse] anticipating the return of their anniversary with the most pleasurable feelings, --------- LOCKWOOD TEMPERANCE FESTIVAL. The friends of the Lockwood Temperance Society ommenced commenced] the celebration of their eleventh an- [annual] nual [annual] festival, on Sunday evening last, with a public temperance prayer meeting, which was respect- [respectably] ably and numerously attended.-On Monday afternoon an out-door meeting was held, when addresses were de- [delivered] livered by Mr. J. C. Booth, temperance missionary, of Huddersfield Mr. Booth, of Leeds, and other genile- [gentle- gentlemen] men and in the evening, in the Temperance Room, a Washingtonian meeting was held, when several reformed characters addressed the meeting, who delineated, in an earnest and pathetic way, the miseries they endured whilst drunkards, and the peace and comfort they now enjoy as total abstainers.-On Tuesday evening a public meeting was held in the Church School-room. Mr. Joseph Wild, of Huddersfield, in the chair, when addresses were delivered by the Rev. C. A. Hulbert, of Slaith- [Snaith- Slaithwaite] waite, and Mr. J. C. Booth, of Huddersfield.-On Wed- [Wednesday] nesday [Wednesday] evening the annual tea party took place, in the Church School-room (kindly lent for the occasion by the Rey. Mr. Benstead, the incumbent), when a crowded company partook of the repast, which was rendered cr interesting by the presence of the children forming the Lockwood Temperance Band of Hope. Tea having been discussed, the more business part of the evenings proceedings was introduced by the audience joming [coming] in singing a temperance hymn, after which Mr. B, Wison, [Wilson] of Mirfield, was called to the chair, and pro- [proceeded] ceeded [needed] to express, in brief terms, the pleasure it afforded him in being present at so numerous a mecting-a [meeting-a] fact which augured well for the cause in that neighbourhood. He enjoined on those present to give a hearty support to the temperance cause and the Peace Society, and at the same time to be sincere religionists, and to cultivate habits of industry, thrift, and prudence, in their deal ings with those connected with them in the every-day transactions of life, and thus win over a respect for tee- [teetotallers] totallers [totals] and their cause.- [cause] The SECRETARY then read the report of the committee for the past year, in which the importance of spreading notions of temperance was fully d, and the saving thereby to be effected elabo- [label- elaborately] rately [lately] calculated. The committee had not to report any extraordinary success amongst the adult population, nor had the temperance cause as yet made great pro- [progress] gress [grass] in Lockwood, but this they attributed mainly to the difficulties they had had to contend with, through the want of an adequate meeting room-an evil which would not be fully overcome until they had a temperance hall. In July last a Band of Hope was formed, and which now numbered 120 boys and girls, who remained to the cause, and who, by tle [te] assistance of Mr. Enoch Sykes and other gentlemen, had made great pro- [pro] 2 od which did not exist a few years ago, the com- [comes] rs ttee, [tree] in conclusion, saw more cause for encouragement still re but regretted that many employers fall made custom to give suppers, and some- [Somerset] tom ay pans at the public-house -a cus- [us- cause] oe oe injurious results.- [results] ' ption [portion] of the report, and sede [see] te rs sc pr were men who were in- W. ji THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1850. as evidenced by the declension of men high in the reli- [deli- religious] gious [pious] world by their habits of intemperance. In re- [reference] ference [France] to benevolent societies, he condemned the com- [combination] bination [bi nation] therewith of the spending of one sixth of the funds of these societies in alcoholic drinks. This one sixth rightly applied, would, he maintained, secure the solvency, instead of bringing about the insolvency of many of these societies. Although the society had met with persecution, the best means of allaying it was by forming a correct public opinion on the question of in- [intemperance] temperance, witHout [without] which intemperance could never be put down. He further maintained that the con- [consumption] sumption of alcohol tended to damage Sabbath-school instruction, instancing the common practice among young teachers of visiting the public-house during the in- [interval] terval [alter] between school hours. The only way to remedy this, he contended, was to instil into Sabbath scholars the temperance principles.-Mr. E. Srort, [Short] of Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field, in seconding the resolution, expressed the pleasure he should feel in supporting the principle. He then alluded to the importance of parents encouraging these bands of hope, which were the safest ground on which to base the permanency of the temperance cause. The speaker suggested that in order to remedy the objec- [object- objectionable] tionable [unable] practice of paying men at the public house, a proper representation should be made to the em- [employers] ployers [players] which would go far to remedy this practice. A friend remarked to him afew [few] days ago that he never thought to see the time when they would have two mails a day to Meltham, but they had them ; and a greater progress than this, with proper zeal and ernestness [earnestness] of application, would result from the enunciation of temperance views. The reso- [rose- resolution] lution [Lotion] was then put and carried unanimously.-Mr. JaMES [James] CROSLAND, in moving a vote of thanks to the Rev. Mr. Benstead (incumbent), and Mr. Heywood (schoolmaster), of Lockwood Church, for the use of the school-room, expressed his regret that the clergy did not fee disposed to give the temperance cause a more general and zealous support.-Mr. J. C. Booru, [Boor] tem- [te- temperance] perance [Prince] lecturer, from Huddersfield, next addressed the meeting. He first proceeded to relate a variety of personal anecdotes, in answer to the charge that teeto- [teeth- teetotallers] talers [tales] were wild on this subject, arguing that if they were wild they had produced a great social, moral, and religious reform in this country by this species of wild- [wildness] ness. He denounced those who pursued a negative course on this subject; never openly opposing, but, by a sort of under-current, doing all they could in the background to undermine this cause, instead of meeting its advocates fairly to discuss the question upon its merits. After alluding to the co-operative influences at work favouring the teetotal cause, he took occasion to auger the speedy success of the Peace movement; for, assuredly, as physical force went down in public estima- [estimate- estimation] tion [ion] moral foree [free] would become more elevated, and the claims of this society be more fully recognised. Instead of guns and swords the coming weapon by which society was to make way was that of the highest truth, one of the greatest elements in which he submitted to be teetotalism. The speaker then alluded to the drunken extravagance which too frequently pre- [prevailed] vailed [sailed] on the occasion of these feasts, and the general starvation following thereon, all arising from drunkenness and the wasteful expenditure of the work- [working] ing man's public-house. A drunkard, he maintained, could not or ought not to expect a wife to make home comfortable if he did not take his money home, for in spite of all the modern arts of cookery the wife could not yet make puddings out of pudding cloths. (Laughter.) The 400,000 manufacturers of intoxicating liquors were next denounced by the speaker, and to supersede whom he called for a greater zeal in the tem- [te- temperance] perance [Prince] cause, and if, in addition to these, moderate drinkers would desist from moderate drinking, the tem- [te- temperance] perance [Prince] cause would be complete. It was the respect- [respectable] able, decorous, virtuous, well-dressed moderate drinkers who threw an air of respectability round a most obnox- [obnoxious- obnoxious] ious [sous] system, and gave it a more dignified position in the face of society than it could ever receive at the hands of the confirmed drunkard. (Hear, hear.) Having paid twenty millions for knocking off the fetters of the slave, he asked them if, by the spread of teetotalism, they would not save fifty millions by putting down the last vestige of drunkenness. The speaker argued that strong drinks, as in the case of Rush, were the greatest incen- [ince- incentives] tives [lives] to crime, and he ventured further the opinion that scarcely any man was equal to embruing [embracing] his hands in his brother's blood without the aid of alcoholic stimu- [stem- stimulants] lants. [Lance] The speaker, in conclusion, congratulated their supporters on the assistance it now received from the press, the pulpit, the platform, and those rising bands of hope among the young who were now being so nume- [name- numerously] rously [rosy] allied with the temperance cause. In proposing a vote of thanks to the ladies who had gratuitously sup- [supplied] plied trays, he urged on mothersand [thousand] wives the necessity of refraining themselves in order that their example might tend to the same results among their husbands and tender families-The motion was seconded by Mr. Booth, of Leeds. and passed by acclamation.-Thanks were then awarded to Mr. Wilson, for presiding, and briefly acknowledged by that gentleman, and Mr. Joseph Wild having briefly addressed the meeting, the proceed- [proceedings] ings terminated a little before ten p.m. TREAT TO WoRKPEOPLE.-On [People.-On] Wednesday afternoon the workpeople of Messrs. J. W. and H. Shaw, of this village, to the number of 140, were entertained at dinner by their employers, at the Shoulder of Mutton Inn, Lockwood, to commemorate the recent marriage of William Shaw, jun., Esq., one of the partners in this extensive firm. The repast was of the most substantial character, aud [and] reflected great credit on Mrs. Dyson, the respected landlady, and was honoured by the presence of John Shaw, Esq., and James Shaw, jun., Esq. After the cloth had been drawn, the usual loyal toasts were given from the chair, and warmly responded to. Mr. John Shaw, in answer to the toast of Health and Pros- [Prosperity] perity [purity] to Mr. William Shaw and his bride, addressed the hands present in brief but affectionate terms, assur- [assure- assuring] ing them of the deep interest himself and partners felt in their happiness and continued prosperity. Addresses were afterwards delivered by some of the leading work- [workmen] men, expressive of the good-feeling all the workmen felt towards their employers, and of their willingness to do all in their power to promote their interests. Songs, glees, and recitations followed, and thus a very pleasant evening was passed until about eleven o'clock, when the company dispersed. On the evening of the same day the females engaged in Messrs. Shaw's works were libe- [line- liberally] rally regaled with tea and the usual accompaniments, in the large wool warehouse, while the children had each a small sum of money given them, so that all might join in celebrating, in the manner most becoming, the marriage of one of their respected and esteemed employers. DISTRICT NEWS. HALIFAX. Tue PuinnaRMonic [Cinnamon] Sociery.-On [Society.-On] Tuesday evening the second Grand Concert of the society was held in the Odd Fellows' Hall, St. James' Road. The attend- [attendance] ance [once] was exceedingly numerous and respectable. The band acquitted themselves very satisfactorily, es- [especially] pecially [specially] in the playing of the andante from Beethoven, and the overture, Masaniello. Manilla. Miss Eliza Birch and Mr. John Carter, were engaged for the vocal department; the former was twice recalled in the songs Phillis is my only joy and the Lass o' Gowrie; [Gore; the latter was encored in the song of the Union Standard. Mr. Frobisher acted as conductor with his usual skill, and the evening's entertainment passed off with general satisfaction. DETERMINED SuicipE.-On [Suicide.-On] Monday last, about half- [half past] past eleven in the forenoon, the body of one George Oldfield, carpet weaver, was found (the throat dread- [dreadfully] fully cut) in a field opposite Messrs. Haigh's Mill, in New Bank. The rash man had left home about eight o'clock, tuken [taken] a razor with him, and standing near to the wall committed the shocking deed. He has been depressed for some short time. He has left eight children, the eighth having been born shortly after the afflicting news reached his wife-labours' pains being hastened by the intelligence. Missions.-Services in connection with the Baptist Missionary Society were held on Sunday last in the Chapel of that denomination in Pellon-lane. [Mellon-lane] The Revs. J. Birt, [Bit] from Oldham, and A. Saker, missionary from Africa, officiated. The collections and subscriptions amounted to 26. 14s. 7d. Lonpon [London] Missionary Socrety.-The [Society.-The] Halifax branch of this institution has, during the past week, held its annual services in the town and neighbourhood. The Reverends John Sibree [Brees] (of Coventry), R. W. McAll [Mall] (of Sunderland), and J. G. Rogers, B.A. (of Newcastle-upon- [intone] Tyne), preached at Square, Sion, and Harrison-road chapels.

Tue Feast.-This event, looked forward to with so much interest by the youth of Honley and the surround- [surrounding] ing villages, was celebrated on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday lest. On the two latter days the public attra-c [attract-c] tions [tins] were many and various, ranging from Brierley's circus and the legitimate drama (price of admission only one penny,) down to the more humble half-penny peep- [peeps] show and Johnson's patent high-flyer. In addition to these intellectual ) repasts there was an abundant display of creature comforts in the way of spice, ginger- [gingerbread] bread, and other dainties, known to be great favourites with the lasses of Honley, who seemed to avail them- [themselves] selves of the free-will offerings of the other sex to the utmost extent of their masticating powers. The Home hospitality of the inhabitants, for which Honley people are famous, was as ample as ever, the smell of roast beef pervading the whole atmosphere, and the pleasure of partaking of it being offered to all ' comers. Asa whole there was more of rational enjoy- [enjoyment] ' ment [men] than formerly, the cricket-field being substituted in the great majority of cases for more objectionable kinds of amusements, and several flower-shows held in the neighbourhood attracted a goodly number of holi- [hole- holiday] day-seekers [seekers] in those directions. 1 supplied, and presided over by the lassies of Honley in- [interested] terested [trusted] in this movement. The repast, which was abundantly supplied with creature comforts, was par- [partaken] taken of by a great number of persons. Tea having the evils resulting in a domestic, moral, and religious sense from our drinking customs, and reminded audience that though for a season they might sub- [subject] ject [jet] themselves to the sneers of their fellow-workers, they might rest assured that their principle was correct, was masses of the people.-After the report had been read by Mr. Booth, the secretary, the meeting was addressed by Mr. Turner, who traced the early origin of the temperance cause, and pointed out the insult and annoyance they had to encounter, arguing therefrom that there was much in the present more favoured aspect of things from which total abstainers should take courage. He then proceeded to argue that teetotalism was to the advantage of man physically, that it was in accordance, and not as had been contended by many, in opposition to scripture; and in a lengthy and humorous speech, he urged on the moderate drinkers to desist from intoxicating drinks altogether as the only effectual mode of destroying those habits of drunkenness which rendered numerous families wretched and miserable-Mr. Vic- [Vickerman] KERMAN (a working man), next addressed the meeting, He remarked on the indications of progress which met them on all hands, and if society did not plead guilty to all the crimes imputed to it by Carlyle, they were most of them becoming alive to the mission of progression. Science was making rapid strides on all hands, but he warned his audience against mistaking the signs of civili- [civil- civilization] zation [nation] for civilization itself, for if all the great victories mind had achieved over matter had not made the popu- [Pope- population] lation [nation] at large less miserable now than formerly, our boasted progress was a mere delusion. After referring to some other topics, the speaker advocated the doing away with beer-shops, and the practice of doing away with drinking alcoholic drinks, for though the doctrine of moderation might do for the individual it would not do for the mass. It was therefore manifestly right that the minority should give up that which was inju- [ing- injurious] rious [riots] to the majority-The Rev. Mr. MacraRLaNE [MacFarlane] expressed the pleasure it afforded him in being pre- [present] sent. He had no objection to the use of intoxicating drinks as drugs, for he believed that they were good in themselves, and sent into the world for a wise purpose, like many other poisons contained in some of the choicest of fruit. He had no objection to alcohol, and when it retired to its proper position, 7. ., the position of a medicine, they, the teetotallers, would not object to style this poison good King Alcohol. The speaker then proceeded to argue the soundness of this view, and to contend that, though there were extreme cases in which poisons were requisite, as in the application of mercury, yet the use of these poisons, in ordinary cases, resulted in danger and injury to the party misapplying them,-they were no more necessary than a chain was necessary to suspend the globe. In answer to the argu- [argue- argument] ment, [men] that a little drink did not doa [do] man any harm, he contended that though in the abstract this might be correct, yey [yet] added, that society must be regarded as one vast moral machine, each part having a bearing upon certain other parts, and hence every man composing that machine beeame [became] answerable for the ultimate results produced by that machine. In conclusion the reverend gentleman, in a strain of fervid eloquence, called on his audiente [audience] never to forget, in their advocacy of total abstinence, the more vital importance, in an eternal sense, of the practices of religion.-The meeting was next addressed by Mr. Wimpenny, and votes of thanks awarded to the ladies who had provided trays, and also to the chairman.- [chairman] During the evening the proceedings were agreeably diversified by our talented vocalist, Mrs. Sunderland, who sang a variety of favourite songs, to the great delight of the company, who manifested their approval by loud plaudits. Miss Mellor, of Huddersfield, ably accompanied on the piano forte, and during the evening played several difficult pieces on the grand piano.- [piano] Thanks having been awarded to the fair vocalists, Mrs. Sunderland responded by singing the solo of God Save the Queen, the whole company joining in chorus, and thus these interesting proceedings terminated. Removat [Removal] oF a FENCE WaLu.-On [Wall.-On] Saturday last, an old stone mason, named John Weovill, [Will] appeared before the Huddersfield magistrates to answer a charge preferred against him by William Dyson, stone mason, for unlawfully removing a certain fence wall in the pos- [post- possession] session of the complainant at Honley, on the 4th inst., and committing damage to the amount of 35s. The complainant and defendant are occupiers of stone quar- [quay- quarries] ries, [rise] under Lord Dartmouth, in the township of Honley. situated at some short distance from each other. Dyson, in order to make a more direct cut to his ow. quarry, made a new road, and protected it with a fence wall. This road was also more direct for the defendant, who had used it for some time without doing anything towards its repair. In consequence steps had been taken to prevent his passing along the road any longer, which resulted in the removal by the defendant of about sixty or seventy loads of stone or rubbish, composing the wall in question. Itappeared [It appeared] that some differences had arisen as to the right of Dyson to make the road, but this was a question the magistrates did not enter into. One of the witnesses, who was bursting for a speech, made a long harangue, and intimated, for the instruction of the bench, that he did not think they were competent to decide the matter. Mr. Jos. Brook replied, that they would endeavour to do so whether they were competent or not, and on obtaining evidence as to the value of the material removed ordered the defendant to pay 7s. 6d. with costs. LINDLEY. Re-OPENING OF St. STEPHEN's CouRcH.-On [Church.-On] Sunday last the above church was re-opened for divine service, after having been closed five Sundays, for the purpose of undergoing a thorough cleansing and beautifying, which it had never before received since it was built. A screen has been put up at the west end of the church, which greatly improves, and will materially add to the comfort of the frequenters of this place of worship. The walls and ceiling have been cleaned and re-coloured, and the whole of the church has been beautifully painted. The commandments, creed, &c., at the east end of the church, have been re-lettered in red and black old English characters, on a vellum ground. New cloths, carpets, cushions, and hangings, have been put on the communion table, pulpit, and reading-desk ; mattings, &c., procured for the aisles; and in short the church has been so thoroughly beautified and repaired, that, to use the words of the Rev. Mr. Haigh, in his sermon in the evening, any one who had seen it before on going into it now would hardly know it to be the same place. .On account of its exposed situation many things have been done to the exterior and tower calculated to strengthen it and to preserve it from the effects of the wind and wet, from which it has hitherto suffered much. There were three services during Sunday last, that in the morning was preached by the Rev. J. Bellamy, incumbent; in the afternoon by the Rev. J. Bateman, the vicar; and in the evening by the Rev. John Haigh, incumbent of St. and collections made after them to the amount of 15. This added to the amount collected by Mrs. Pitt and Miss Bellamy amongst the inhabitants of Lindley, and the gentry and friends of the church in Huddersfield and its vicinity, made a sum of near 110, which has been expended in one way or another for the improvement of the church, which is now out of debt. Full Cathedral service was was performed by an efficient choir, assisted in the eve- [evening] ning [nine] by Messrs. Milnes and Wilkinson, from Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field. The beautiful anthem The Lord is full of com- [compassion] passion, arranged by Mr. Wilkinson, was selected for the evening, and was given with great feeling and taste. As there was no gas in the village available for the pur- [our- purpose] pose of lighting the church, it was nicely lighted by means of Sawdon's self-generating gas lamps.

The lists of Horton and Manningham [Manning] contained a great number of new claims by liberals who derived their qualifications from holding shares in building societies.

EMBEZZLING WOOLLEN Saturday last, before the Huddersfield magistrates, Eli Taylor was summoned by Richard Henry Kaye, inspector for th Manufacturers' Protective Association, for having in his possession a large quantity of woollen waste. Mr. C. S. Floyd, solicitor to the association, appeared on behalf of the association. It was stated that there were about 300ibs. [300lbs] of waste, and 400Ibs. [400lbs] of copins found in the defendant's house. Not being prepared with evidence, Taylor applied for an adjournment, which was granted for Tuesday next, he being bound over to appear.

Mr. Heaten [Heaton] deposed that, on the 14th inst., whilst at Cumberworth, he found the house open between ten and eleven o'clock.

The defendant did not appear, and an order was made out for the amount claimed. Barrett some time ago had engaged with Hirst, at the rate of 3s. a day, and the amount now owing was balance of account. -- aia [ais] LORD BROUGHAM'S LATE PISCATORIAL QUARREL. Tuesday being the day appointed for the investiga- [investigation- investigation] tion [ion] of Lord Brougham's illegal netting dispute, toge- [toe- together] ther [the] with the counter assault cases, at Penrith, a great gatherinig [gathering] of people was the consequence. Messrs. W. and D. Blaymore [Baltimore] appeared for the Angling Association Jameson for Lord Brougham's party. There were no fewer than eight fishing and ten assault cases arising out of the same transaction. The first case proceeded with was that of John Robson, blacksmith, who appeared to answer the information of Thomas Hall, one of Sir G. Musgrave's gamekeepers, under 7 and 8 George IV., c. 29, charging him with illegally using a net device, whereof the mesh was of a less size than one inch, at least, from knot to knot, or five inches round, and also did use a net which was double-armoured, in the river Eamont, in the parish of Edenhall and Brougham, in the counties of Cumberland and Westmoreland, on Monday, the 16th instant. Thomas Hall stated, that in accordance with instruc- [instruct- instructions] tions [tins] received from Sir George Musgrave, he, along with several other men from Penrith, went to the river Eamont on Monday, the 16th instant, in order to pre- [prevent] vent all netting upon the side of the river belonging to Sir George. They had information that an attempt of this kind was to be made by Lord Brougham. When he and the others were watching, four or five men, of whom Robson was one, appeared at the side of the river. Shortly afterwards two carriages came up full of ladies and gentlemen. John Robson and Thomas Armstrong brought the net to the river side. Robson then changed part of his clothing and came over from the Westmore- [Restore- Westmoreland] land side with a rope in his hand, by which he drew the net after him. Witness walked up to him and told him he had no business on that (the Cumberland) side. Robson said he had nothing to do with it; witness might speak to Lord Brougham. Witness again told him to be off, but he took no notice. Two or three Penrith men came up then and got hold of the rope. During the whole of the time he saw no one strike at Robson, nor he at any one. He was sure that Robson was walking down the river nearer to the Cumberland than the Westmoreland side. It was possible that fish could have been caught. This was the case for the plaintiff. Mr. W. Brougham, who was called for the defendant, stated that on the 16th instant his brother and a party of friends went down to the river Eamont with the express purpose of trying the construction heretofore put on the act entitled the Solway Act. 'Their object was to go down and draw the river with a net of a peculiar description-of a smaller mesh than usual, called a double-armoured net-to try whether the act of dragging the river with such a net was illegal or not. Their notion was that they had an undoubted right to go down the Cumberland side in order to fish the West- [Westmoreland] moreland [Ireland] side. He could hardly believe it possible there could have been any objection to that, because if persisied [persisted] in, the river would be perfectly useless to both parties, as it was impossible to fish with a net in one part of the river without going over to the other ; a draught could not be made by taking half a river only. He added, that if the attacking party had waited five minutes the fishing would have been completed. As it was, however, he had no hesitation in swearing most solemnly that the net was never in a position to catch anything.- [anything] The Chairman said that the bench were unanimously of opinion that the charge had been fully made out, and they adjudged that Robson, the defendant, should pay a penalty of 5, including costs, otherwise to suffer six weeks' imprisonment in Carlisle gaol.-The fine was paid.- [paid] The case was decided under the general act. Thomas Armstrong, of Penrith, labourer, then ap- [appeared] peared [pared] to answer an information pressed by William Watson, a member of the Eamont and Eden Angling Association, under the Solway Act. On the part of the defendant it was contended that the Solway Act applied only to fish of the salmon tribe, wpe [we] the pursuer maintained that it applied toall [toll] kinds . The Bench took time to adjudicate. John Jackson, a member of the Penrith Angling Association, then appeared to answer a charge of as- [assault] sault [salt] with which he was charged by John Robinson, of Eamont-bridge, blacksmith, one of Lord Brougham's netters. After the examination of the Marquis of Douro, Mr. W. Brougham, and other witnesses, the Bench gave it as their opinion that a good deal of violence had been used but as there were some cross charges for assaults, all of which arose out of the fishing, they would recom- [com- recommend] mend those eee [see] on both sides should be withdrawn, and they sho [so] en refrain from giving j the case in question. String judgment on The assault cases on both sides were then withdrawn by mutual consent. A charge was then preferred, under the Wilful Tres- [Tees- Tees] pass Act, by old John Robson, his lordship's head netter, against George Goodburn, f i the 19th instant, 9g vm, for cutting the net on After two or three witn [with] was dismissed witnesses had been heard, the case The Court rose about nine and the most in- [intense] tense interest prevailed during the whole hearing. -- -- Ambassador left London on Thursday for After the delivery of several interesting addresses, Mr, Excell [Excel] The Turkish fo Berlin and Viennn, [Vienna] en route to Constan [Constant] of n Sir James Duke, M.P., his of Penrith, and Sir George Musgrave, Bart., and Mr. SPORTING INTELLIGENCE.

We wish it to be distinctly understood that we do not hold ourselves responsible for the views of our correspondents.

STATE OF THE CATTLE-MARKET. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE. S1r,-One [Sir,-One] of the greatest nuisances to which the inhabitants of Huddersfield are at present subjected, is our present Cattle-Market. It is impossible for any person to pass down the Beast-market and along North- [Northgate] gate, on Tuesdays, without having the marks of one or more cows tails (which are not at all times clean or sweet) left upon some portion of their clothing; and it [C] is not unfrequently [frequently] the lot of diminutive persons to suffer similarly in the face. If the Improvement Com- [Commissioners] missioners have not the power to remove the catile- [cattle- cataract] market to a more convenient -place, (not in our public streets,) by giving instructions to the police officers not to allow cattle to be placed upon the foot-pavement, they would be conferring a great favour upon passengers in that locality. I am, Sir, your obedient servant, Huddersfield, 25th September, 1850. ------ WESLEYAN REFORM. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE. Sm-Having seen your reporter at the Wesleyan Reform meeting, held at Lockwood, on Monday last, I take it for granted that an account of the proceedings of that meeting will appear in the Chronicle of Saturday next. May I trouble you also to insert this letter, for the purpose of exposing the crafty and unfair manner in which that meeting was conducted, as displayed more particularly in the conduct of the meeting towards our universally respected friend, B. L. Shaw, Esq. I would first observe, that the chairman repeatedly invited their opponents to come forward and express their views, previous to the resolutions being put to the meeting, and promised that all such should have a fai fair] and impartial hearing. I cannot tell what Mr. William Kaye (the chairman) intended to imply by the word impartial, but I con- [conceive] ceive [receive] it to mean an equal distribution of justice. We shall see in what manner Mr. Kaye administered that justice, and leave an enlightened public to form their own opinions thereon. After the resolution to the effect that supplies should be stopped had been moved and seconded, in long and disgraceful addresses, Mr. Shaw intimated to the chair- [chairman] man that he was desirous of saying a few words on the other side of the question before that resolution was put to the meeting. He was informed that he could not be allowed to do so unless he came on the platform. He accordingly, in a calm, deliberate, but noble manner, ascended the platform, and was just beginning to address the meeting, when the chairman abruptly interfered, and informed Mr. Shaw that the proper time for their opponents to appear was at the close of the meeting; and, as that also appeared to be the opinion of the meeting, Mr. Shaw was again stopped, and the resolu- [resolute- resolution] tion-only [ion-only -only] one side of which had been heard-was put to the meeting, and declared to be carried. After two or three other addresses had been given by the Reformers, Mr. Shaw was informed that he might speak ten minutes, but no longer. Mr. Shaw's object in wishing to address the meeting, was to guard them against the hasty adoption of the resolution before spoken of, and to point out the evils which might arise from the adoption of it, but as the verdict was now given, such a course would have been entirely useless. Under these serious disadvantages, Mr. Shaw then, in a most affectionate manner, for a few minutes addressed the meeting; but while doing so, one or two of his supporters were disgraced with cries of Turn him out, and other such disgraceful expressions. If this is the Reformers' idea of fair and impartial, they should certainly be tacit on the alleged unfairness and partiality of the Conference. But of course as is the tree, such will be the fruit. We need not wonder that men who have met together for the purpose of adopting measures so unjust as that of stopping the supplies from those whom they them- [themselves] selves had invited to labour among them, and thereby promised to support, should be guilty of other unjust proceedings in the carrying out of those measures. Such conduct as this may be called (to use the Reformers' own expressions) un-constitutional-un- [Christian] Christian-un-English. [un-English] Thanking you for your kindness in inserting this letter, I am, Sir, yours faithfully, A WESLEYAN. Huddersfield, September 26th, [the] 1850. We have submitted the above letter to our Reporter, who differs in opinion with our correspondent as to the conduct of Mr. Kaye, and considers the strictures on the general character of the meeting too severe. He states that the restrictions placed on Mr. Shaw, as to when and for what length of time the latter gentleman should address the meeting, was decided by the meeting itself, on a motion duly moved, seconded, and carried. Our Reporter so far bears out our correspondent, as to confirm him in the asser- [assert- assertion] tion, [ion] that at the meeting in question Mr. Shaw showed great forbearance and moderation, and that he was sub- [subject] Jected, [Ejected] while speaking, to many unseemly interruptions. So long as these unhappy differences exist, we fear that this spirit will continue to be manifested. Keformers [Reformers] have met with the same treatment at the hands of the Conference party, and vice versa, making good the old saying that religious disputes are the worst of all controversies, and from the bitter personal animosity they invariably engender, ought the more carefully to be avoided by Christians of every sect. Our Reporter is of opinion that if the chairman did in any way commit himself, it was from his inexperience in the management of a meeting where excited feelings prevailed, and from a desire to act in accordance with the wishes of the majority, rather than take the responsibility of action altogether on himself. The other points in our correspondent's letter involve matters on which Wesleyans a and into which we decline at present to enter.-Eb. Aw HisToricaL [Historical] PaRALLeEL.- [Parnell.- Parnell] The whole narration of Haynau's [Hannah's] treatment in Southwark irresistibly reminds us of that took place rather more than a century and a half ago, on the same bank of the Thames, and not very far from Southwark. We mean the scene where the san- [sanguinary] guinary [sanguinary] and brutal Judge Jefferies (to whom Haynau [Hannah] would have been as congenial a spirit as was Colonel Kirke) [Kirk] was recognised by the crowd, dragged from the public-house where he was lurking, pelted and along the com- [common] mon highway, and only rescued from death by the interpo- [inter- interposition] sition [sit ion] of an armed force. The historians who recount this do not deal in any sentimentalities about mob brutality or the like. On the contrary, the latest and the greatest of them, Mr. Macaulay, when he comes to describe this scene, calls it 'an event which, even at this distance of time, can hardly be related without a feeling of vindictive pleasure. We venture to predict that future historians will feel a similar sensation when they come to narrate what hap- [hap fain] Fain at Bankside to General Haynau [Hannah] on his visit to land after the Hungarian war.- [war] Week News. Acoustic ALTERATIONS IN EXETER HaLt.-The [Hat.-The] altera- [alter- alteration] tion [ion] which is being made at Exeter Hall consists in forming a covered ceiling instead of a flat one, the new ceiling being twelve feet higher in the centre than the former one.

[Service] A man, named Samuel Seaton, formerly a baker in Spalding, took a quantity of arsenic on Thursday last, and from the largeness of the dose vomiting was produced, but the poison had taken such effect that death ensued on Sunday morning. The wretched man had seduced his own daughter, a young girl followin [following] the business of a dressmaker. The girl being exciente [extent] led to the discovery, and the inhuman father, unable to face the Paplicity [Capacity] of his atrocity, has added the crime of suicide to the black and fearful crime of seduction. ton was the man who lately made an attempt to perform the Her- [Herculean] culean [clean] task of walking 1,000 miles in 1,000 hours, which he abandoned for want of patronage, after about a forta'sht's [fort'st's] trial.- [trial] Boston Herald. DELIBERATE ATTEMPT AT MURDER.-On Tuesday, at Crew's Hole, near Bristol, a dispute having arisen between two men named James Price and William Hicks, about aq which is the property of Price, but which he has left to Hicks, Price, armed with a loaded gun, went to the quarry, accompanied by his son-in-law, a man named James Bryant, and ordered Hick's men to leave off working. They declined to do so, upon which he said, If you do not desist, I will shoot you, and t said, 'Shoot them, shoot them, I'll stand the racket. Price immediately levelled his gun, and shot a man named Joseph Pearce, shattering his hand to pieces. The poor fellow was immediately removed to the now lies.
