Mr. W. P. 'GLAND called the attention of the board to rule 43 of the institution's code of management, which was as follows -' That none of the greater operations be formed (except on occasions of great emergency,) without a previous consultation of the medical officers, to all of whom a written notice shall be sent by the apothe- [another- apothecary] cary, [car] if possible, the day before. And with a view to the extension of the utility of this Infirmary, it is recommended that the gentlemen of the profession of the town and neighbourhood of Huddersfield, who are governors, should be invited to witness the capital operations. Acting on this recommendation, Mr. England enquired of the House Surgeon, (Mr. Greenwood,) whether the recommendation, in reference to calling in the gentlemen of the profes- [profess- profession] sion, [ion] of the town and neighbourhood, who are governors, had been acted upon by the physicians and surgeons when such capital opérations [operations] had boon performed. Mr GREENWOOD said he believed that the medical men, on such occasions, were in the habit of inviting their pro- [professional] fessional [professional] friends; that was an arrangement left to the medical men themselves, and of whom he would prefer the quéstivn [question] being asked. ; The CHairMan [Chairman] felt glad that Mr. England had called the attention of the board to this matter, as it was one of eat importance, and from the remark of Mr Greenwood it would almost appear that the professional friends of the surgeons were invited instead of such governors, as, being medical men, were intended, according to the spirit of this rule, to be invited without any favouritism whatever being displayed. He did not say this had not becn [been] the case, but suggested that a resolution calling the attention of the medical men to the recommendation embodied in the rule in question might be productive. of some good, if there existed any just cause for complaint. Mr. ENGLAND disclaimed any personal feeling in putting the question, and observed that he was induced to make the enquiry in consequence of a charge of this nature hav- [have- having] ing been levelled at the general ement [cement] of the institu- [institute- institution] tion [ion] in the public prints. He qonsientad [consented] by moving a reso- [rose- resolution] lution, [Lotion] at the suggestion of the Chairman, drawing the attention of the medical officers to the rule givén [given] above, and respectfully requesting that they would in future see fit to act upon it by sending a circular to each qualified medical governor, inviting his presence when any capital operation was about to be performed. Mr. THomas [Thomas] KILNER seconded the resolution. Mr. JOsErFH [Joseph] SHaw, [Shaw] though concurring to some extent, scarcely felt. at liberty to support the motion, as it might be looked upon as a reflection on them by the medical men. Now, there were only four medical gentlemen to whom this resolution could apply, and it, therefore, became a question if the Board were not making too momentous an affair of it, and he suggested whether the discussion, which would, now the town had a paper, be made public, would not suf- [su- suffice] fice [five] without any resolution. The question had before been mooted, and the answer of the medical men then was, that they should be happy to see every medical man, on those occasions, were the operating room sufficiently large for that p and, in conclusion, he felt confident that the discussion would fully accomplish the object in view. Mr. ENGLAND said he had been actuated by one simple motive, which was that the public at large might be advan- [advance- advantaged] taged [aged] by the extended medical knowledge acquired from operations performed in the presence of medical men in public establishments, and although there were only four medical men now eligible, it was quite possible that, in case the invitation was made more general, that a greater num- [sum- number] ber [be] of medical men might be induced to become subscrib- [subscribe- subscribers] ers, [es] under a prospect of the advantages which would result from carrying such a resolution as that he had submitted. Mr. JOsepH [Joseph] SHaw, [Shaw] in order to make the matter wear a more courteous aspect towards the medical men, moved that the recommendation should emanate from the monthly board, who were more directly in communication with the medical officers.......... Mr. JOSEPH BROOK seconded the amendment, with which Mr. England expressed himself uite [quite] Satisfied, and intimated a wish to be allowed to with- [withdraw] raw his motion in its favour, but to that coutse [course] Mr. Kilner the seconder) objected, but on a show of hands Mr. Shaw's amendment was carried with only one dissentient. Votes of thanks were next passed to the weekly and monthly boards, and also to the House Committee ALLEGED NEGLECT OF THE INMATES OF THE HOUSE. Mr. JosepH [Joseph] SHaw, [Shaw] as a member of the monthly board, referred to the searching inquiry that had been made into the expenditure, and the result had been a considerable diminution in the outlay without impairing the efficiency of the institution. He had heard, and regretted much to hear it, that a statement had been made to the effect that the inmates were abrid [abroad] in some of the necessary com- [comforts] forts. In reply to such a charge, he (the s er) believed on his honour that such a charge was without foundation in truth, and he ventured to deny it on his personal know- [knowledge] ledge, from his intimate knowledge of the management there pursued, the rule being that the best of everything was purchased. It was true that there had been some dis- [discontented] contented persons, who were uhfit [fit] recipients of the benefits there derived, in the institution, and there always would be some such instances, so long as ungrateful men were to be found in the world, but the majority of the inmates on leaving, éxpressed [expressed] themselves in terms of gratitude for the kindness, attention, and comfort they received from all connected with the establishment. Mr. GrorcE [Grocer] HaicH, [Haigh] (who attended as a deputation from lodge 690, of the Manchester. Unity of Odd-Fellows, held at the Tam o' Shanter, [Shatter] Paddock, and which lodge subscribes to the Infirmary funds,) said that inasmuch as the discussion applied simply to his presence, he would at once observe that it had been stated in his lodge room that a member, who had been an inmate of the Infirmary, had not been allowed proper sustenance by the nurse who attended him,-this statement the man had reiterated on his death-bed, and under those circumstances was pretty nerally [nearly] believed among the Odd-Fellows in that locality. e specific complaint made by the patient, on énquiry, [enquiry] was that he wanted a little tea or rice-milk, and that he was merely allowed some cold boiled or rvasted [roasted] potatoes, which he could not partake of. . At this stage of the proceedings the nurse was called into the room and interrogated, when it appeared that the man was in the house as far back as the beginning of 1849, and, although the woman recollected the patient in question, she seemed to have but an imperfect recollection of the circum- [circus- circumstances] stances of his case, further than, that he was very much in bodily pain while in the institution; but she asserted, in general terms, that his diet would be regulated according to the orders of the medical men; but, in no instance, she added, were cold potatoes made a portion of a patient's eal, [Earl] meal, . The board in general expressed their sorrow that the alleged neglect had not sooner been brought before them, so that it might have been gone into with the facts fresh on the memory of all parties; but, in conclusion, they as- [assured] sured [cured] Mr. Haigh that every care should be taken of patients, not only on the part of the board, but by the whole establishment, their diet, of course, being pre- [prescribed] &cribed, [cried] in the first instance, by the medical mer. [Mr] Mr. Haicu [Hack] expressed himself quite satisfied with the ex- [explanation] planation [plantation] given by the board; and thanks having been awarded to the auditors, and the indetatigable [indefatigable] secretary (Mr. Laycock), and, also, to the chairman, the proceedings terminated. Bartism [Baptism] oF BrELts.-Last [Belts.-Last] Monday week a somewhat curious ceremony took place at St. George's Catholic Church, York, being no' more nor less than the bap- [baptism] tism [tim of two bells by the Right Rev. Bishop Briggs, ac- [according] cording to the ritual of the Romish [Rooms] church The bells were two in number, and bore inscriptions, the one, 'St. George Martyr, pray for us the other, Holy Mother of God, pray for us. The bells had rs, J. Lead. bitter, Esq., and his lady attending for St. George and J. Dolman, Esq., and Mrs. Agar vowing and promising for St. ;. The bishop delivered an address, in which he observed, that though the bells were baptised, yet as they are not susceptible of thought or sanctity, no one should confound their baptism with that spiritual regener- [Regent- regeneration] ation [action] which takes place in the administration of baptism to every child. The bishop also defended the two-fold anointing which the bells had received with holy oil, namely, with the oil of the infirm, used in the sacrament of extreme unction, and the holy oil of Chrism used in confirmation. He also alluded t the icance [cancer] of tke [the] holy incense which had been put in the thurible [terrible] and then into the bells. -After some reference to the names of the bells and to their general uses, the proceedings terminated by the baptised bells being rung by the sponsors as the people departed. . His Royal Highness Prince Albert, having received an invitation frotn [front] the Lord Provost of Edinburgh to honour that city by laying the foundation stone of ita [it] new intended . T. P. Crosland, Joseph. that fixed for the departure of the National Gallery, has signified, through his private secre- [secure- secretary] tary [Tar] that he will be happy to comply on condition that he be not invited to attend any public The time has not been yet fixed for the ceremony, and mat depend urt [rt] for DISTRICT NEWS. HOLMFIRTH. OPENING OF THE RaiLwayt-This [Railway-This] event-an epoch in the history of Holmfirth-is to be conducted with becoming eclat on Monday next. The public dinner takes place at the White Hart Inn, in the evening. A band of music is engaged for the occasion the church bells are to be put in requisition and every other symptom of tejoicing [rejoicing] will grace the important occasion. PorpuLaR [Popular] Epucation. [Education] A public examination of the scholars at the Holmfirth Wesleyan day-school took place o the evening of yesterday week, commencing at six o'cloch, [o'cloth] Upwards of 150 gratified spectators were present, and the entire proceedings were most satisfactory. The Rev. J. Hanson delivered a beautiful address, from the 12th verse ofthe [of the] 92nd [2nd] Psalm; and. afterwards presented each pupil with a bun, and a suitable picture Mr. Brooks, the master, deerves [deserves] credit for the able manner in which the school is and it is satisfactory to add, that the number, now eighty, is steadily. increasing. CRIcKET.-The [Cricket.-The] clubs of Holmfirth and Lockwood, were pitted against each other on Tuesday last. The match was played at Holmfirth, the stake being five shillings per man. Although considerable science was displayed by the Lockwood men, the game resulted in their very signal de- [defeat] feat. The return match comes off in a fortnight on the Bosh woth [with] ground, when probably a different verdict may . VILLIANY.-An [VILLAIN.-An] instance of refined cruelty occurred at New-mill, early in the morning of Saturday last, when some diabolical scamps went into a field in which a horse be- [belonging] longing to Mr. Rooley was grazing, and deliberately tied a cord about the animal in such a brutal manner as to endanger its life. Considerable time elapsed before the matter was discovered, during which period great inevitable suffering had taken place. The authors of the crime remain ait [at] present unknown, but it is to be hoped will ere long be. found out. AnclENT [Ancient] Drvuips.-On [Drops.-On] Monday last, the lodge No. 346, U.A.0.D., to the number of 330 members, held high festival by dining together-being the anniversary-at the Crown Hotel. A sumptuous and most substantial repast was provided by mine host for the occasion, and full justice was done to the viands. An adjournment after- [afterwards] wards, took place to the Town-hall, where the social glass went merrily, though moderately, round. Music, too, with songs and lent charm to the scene; and a very pleasant evening. was thus prolonged until the mid- [midnight] night hour scared cach [each] and all té their respective liomes. [looms] FEMALE Union Society.-The old established sick club, under this title, celebrated its anniversary on Midsummer day. Dinner was prepared and partaken of by the mem- [men- members] bers [bees] at the houses of Mrs. Turner, the George Inn, and Mr. Bower, the King's Head, Upper Bridge. The so- [society] ciety [city] consists of 122 members, and is worth 6 each member notwithstanding which, the club is decidedly on the decline-the superannuation allowance is reduced, whilst it has been found requisite to increase the contri- [country- contritions] tions. [tins] Hancine.-Last [Hanson.-Last] Monday, the wife of William Heward of Holme, attempted self-murder by hanging herself up in her own house, during the temporary absence of her family. Being discovered in this situation shortly after the commission of the act, and being immediately cut down, her life was saved. It is supposed that the dissipated conduct of her husband had so far preyed upon the woman's mind as to induce the thoughtless attempt thus to rush into eternity. MAGISTRATES' COURT, June 2 . The principal case before the Bench was another stiff- [stiff shackle] shackle conviction, Superintendent Heaton being com- [complainant] lainant, [lain ant] and John Bower, of Muslin Hall, the defendant. The case was conducted by Mr. Wm.-Drausfield, [Wm.-Dransfield] solicitor, of Huddersfield, and defended by Mr. Scholes, of Dews- [Dewsbury] bury. The sale of beer at 13d. per quart was not de- [denied] nied, [need] Mr. Scholes pleading the legality of it, and maintain- [maintaining] ing that his client jad [had] a perfect right so to sell, inasmuch as the article was table beer, and not beer as generally under- [understood] stood. Many quotations were brought forward to justify the matter, and appeared sufficiently plausible. Mr. Drans- [Drains- Dransfield] field however quoted differently, and to the effect that the restrictive act applied to any beer. Bower possessed a license to brew, but none to sell. The result was a penalty of 5s., with 21s. expenses. The amount is still unpaid. MARSDEN. DiscorD [Discord] In A CHAPEL-On Sunday last a most un- [unseemly] seemly exhibition took place in the Wesleyan Chapel, Marsden. For some time past a fetid has existed amongst thesingers [the singers] of the Chapel, owing to their having become divided into two parts, each striving for the mastery, and for the honour of naming the tunes and starting them. It appears that a member of the body who sits in the singing closet, and plays upon an music, is ambitious of having the sole managemient [management] of the singing, much against the wishes of nearly the entire congregation, who are much dissatisfied with his conduct, but have hitherto refrained from fercibly [forcibly] ejecting him from his assumed leadership, in consequence of the family of which he is a member being among the most prominent supporters of the Wesleyan body in Marsden, and its staunch adherents. This rivalry and misunderstanding, led én Sunday to an open rupture. After the hymn had been given out, the individual in ques- [question] tion, [ion] supported by a singer or two, struck up a tune at the full pitch of their voices; at the same time a widely different tune was begun by the other singers, and taken up by the greater part of the congregation while both parties con- [continued] tinued [continued] the singing of their different tunes with t vehe- [he- vehemence] mence, [fence] testing the capabilities of their lungs to the utmost; we will leave the reader to judge with what effect upon the minds of those who went for the purpose of worshipping their Maker This is not the first occurrence of the kind. For some time past the grea [great] test ill will has existed amongst the would-be leaders of the society, giving birth to most dis- [useful] eful [useful] displays of strife and discord, even on the Sabbath Fe and in the hours of service. Methodism, we are in- [informed] formed is at a somewhat low ebb in Marsden, but such scenes as the above cannot but depress and weaken it still more. ; HALIFAX, Hattrax [Hatter] has usually.been considered one of the best frequented fairs in the West Riding. The great population of the surrounding district, and the antiquity of the town itself, are partly the cause of this, and the usually steady trade of the immediate locality, contributes to draw a full share of those attractions which suit the attenders of fairs. Monday was, of course, the horse fair, and there was a very numerous show, and some excellent animals amo [am them. The town was exceedingly busy from an early until a late hour, but we question whether tradesmen were any the better for it, excepting such as deal in eating and drinking commodities. The shows, always excepting Wombwell's menagerie, were a paltry, miserable aftair, [after] and comprised the. tag, rag, and bobtail, of such establish- [establishments] ments. [rents] Nut and gingerbread stalls were as plentiful as blackberries in autumn, and we sl.éuld [sl.could] think were far too numerous to make the thing profiiab'e [profit'e] to all. However, John Bull, especially the Yorkshiie [Yorkshire] scion of that family, is fond of a good portion of such eatables, so that probably the adventurers had not counted without theirlo ', [their lo] The delightful y fine weather on both Monday and Tuesday, brotight [bro tight] hundreds trooping into town, and on the whole, everybody seemed in good spirits, joyous, and contented Petton Lane ScuHo0L [School] -The Rev.

[schools] Those con- [connected] nected [connected] with Square Chapel to the huniber [Hunter] of 200, had an excursion to Ripon by rail, and from thence on fvot [foot] to Earl de Grey's seat at Studley, where they enjoyed themselves as well as could be expected, considering the length of their walk and the heat of the day. The friends at Zion Chapel numbering 170 or more, visited the city of York, and tified [testified] thomaclves [themselves] with viewing the lions there. From werby-bridge, [Derby-bridge] a number of schoole [school] combined, were trans- [transported] ported to Goole, and if we are correctly informed, not fewer than 2,000 children and adults Visited that place. On the Tuesday, thé [the] Wesleyans connected' With Broad-street sind [send] Hopwood-lane schools took 400 scholars, teachers, and friends té Walefield, [Wakefield] where they spent a delightful after. noon and the children received their annual treat. By the same train, about 150 trom [from] Harrison-road school went to Mirfield, and had a fine view of the choice scenery there, afterwards taking tea together in the Rev. C. Bateman's school, ahd [had] highly gra [ga] thé [the] Nilagers [Villagers] with their eing- [being- singing] ing several suitable ani [an] beautiful melodies, oo SuppEN [Supper] DeatH.-On [Death.-On] Tuesday morning, a young woman aged 22, named Ellen Berry, from Pellon, [Mellon] a i hx, and who is in the employ of Messrs. John Crossley aud [and] Sons, carpet manufacturers, Dean Clough, was at. her work in the weaving shed, when she stiddenly [suddenly] fell down aind [and] died immediately. An inquest was held before George Dysoii, [Dyson] Esq., when a verdict was returned accordingly.

This accident caused several waggons to get off the rails; one of them rolled down the precipitous bank towards the canal, into which it would have falien [fallen] had rot its course been arrested by a tree. One waggon fell over on the opposite side. This was heavily laden with earthen- [earthenware] ware articles all of which were broken to pieces. Two wag gohs [hogs] were completely smashed to atoms. . THE oF 1851.-On [W.-On] the evening of Tucsda [Tuesday] last Mr. Church, of Leeds, delivered a most excollent [excellent] and interesting lecture explanatory of the great exhibition of the works of industry ot all nations to be held in London in 1851, to the members and friends of the Mechanics' Institution, in the lecture room of the institution Uppermil), [April] Though very little interest has been inanifested [manifested] hitherto in this district relative to the exhibition, the talented lecturer in a most agreeable manner accomplished the task of arous [arouse] ing attention and enlisting sympathy. James Lees, Esq., of Delph Lodge, very decidedly denounced tho exhibition as likely to prove injurious to England by enabling foreigners to avail themselves of English inventions and English skill. In reply to the grand fact that six hundred of the most eminent practical men in every department of manufactures and science had recommended the exhibition to be thrown open to the world, he vety- [very- vetyunceremoniously] unceremoniously designated them as so many asses and fools. Mr. Lees's arguments were very ingeniots, [ingenious] and they, and his very plain language contributed greatly to the excitement and of the John Taylor, Esq., (the chairman,) made a few pertinent and forcible remarks, after which a resolution in accordance with the views propounded by the lecturer, and pledging thé [the] meeting to do all in its power to promote the objects of the exhibition was unanimously carried. A local committee was formed, and the meeting broke up a little after ten o'clock in very good humour. A CuHesp [Hesperus] Excursion.-On Saturday week, a female shopkesper [shopkeeper] living near Diggle-bridve, [Diggle-bridge] expecting a quantity of gooseberries from Manchester, sent a half-witted man named Randle, to escort them from Uppermill, [Upper mill] to their destination in safety. Asa privilege and reward to him, and to secure greater despatch, she paid 13d. that he might ride on the railway from Diggle to Saddleworth station, a distance of about a mile. When Randle found himself, he was at Miles Platting, near Manchester. He admitted that the train had frequently stopped, and he heard le calling out something, but he did not know what. The railway officials on examining his ticket, perceived that he had a slate loose, had no alternative but to send him back to Saddleworth with his ticket; but with no better a result, for the next appearance of our hero was at Leeds, whither the train had safely carried him. Thero [There] it was said he was stripped, and a rigorous search instituted amongst his clothes for money, but in vain, for Randle and money are strangers to each other. However, he was shut up in 4 small room, till Sunday morning, when he was sent home to Diggle by the first train, where he safely re-arrived in due course, long after the gooseberries in quest of which he had been sent. He talks much of his cheap trip, Se ATTACK UPON HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN. From the Times of -yesterday. It is our painful duty to announce that a cowardly attack was, on Thursday, made upon her most gracious Majesty the Queen by a man who until within the last four years held a commission in her Majesty's service. About 20 minutes after 6 o'clock last evening her Majesty, accompanied by three of the royal children, and Viscountess Jocelyn, Lady in Waiting, left Cambridge-house, Picca- [Pic- Piccadilly] dilly, where her Majesty had been talling [calling] to inquire after the health of her illustrious uncle. A crowd had assembled without the court-yard gates to witness her Majesty's de- [departure] parture, [pasture] and as the royal carriage passed out of the gates person respectably dressed, and about six feet two inches high, advanced two or three paces, and with a small black cane, which he held in his hand, struck a sharp blow at the Queen. The blow took effect upon the upper part of her Majesty's forehead, and upon her bonnet, which being of a light texture was driven in by its force. The act was witnessed by a great many persons, and a rush being made, the delinquent was instantly seized. Mr. James Summers, in the employ of Messrs. Ordway, [doorway] 159, Piccadilly, was the first to collar him, but several others hurried forward at the same moment, and one per- [person] son, unable to restrain his resentment, dealt the mana [man] low on the face which drew blood at once. But for the timely arrival of the police he would have been still more roughly handled.. Her Majesty betrayed no feeling of alarm, and imme- [Mme- immediately] diately [lately] after the occurrence drove up Piccadilly, on her re- [return] turn to Buckingham Palace, the spectators cheering her loudly as she passed along-a mark of loyalty and affection which her complete self-possession enabled her to acknow- [acne- acknowledge] ledge with her usual courtesy and condescehsioh. [conduce] When the prisoner was browght [brought] to Vine-street station, Inspector Whall, [Hall] the officer on duty, received the charge. On being asked his name, he replied, without hesitation, ' Robert Pate, describing himself as a retired lieutenant of the 10th Hussars, and adding that he resided at No. 27, Duke-street, St. James's. The evidence of Mr. Summers, and various other witnesses, having been taken, the pri- [pro- prisoner] soner [sooner] was asked what he had to say to the charge. He replied that it was true he had struck her Majesty a slight blow with a thin stick, but he added emphatically, in allu- [all- allusion] sion [ion] to the witnesses, 'those men cannot prove whether I struck her head or her bonnet. The prisoner was then conducted to one of the police cells, the charge being en- [entered] tered [teed] upon the police sheet as follows Robort [Robert] Pate, aged 43, retired lieutenant, charged with assaulting Her Majesty the Queen, by striking her on the head with a cane, in Piccadilly, at 6 20 p.m. on Thursday, the 27th in- [instant] stant. [stand] On being searched, there were found upon the prisoner two keys and a pocket No money or weapon of any kind wa8 [was] discovered. After the prisoner had been placed in a cell Mr. Otway, the newly-apro [newly-pro] nted [noted] superinten [superintend] lent of the C division, de- [despatched] spatched [despatch] Mr. Inspector Field, the chief officer of the de- [detective] tective [detective] force, to search his lodgings. Mi. Field there ascertained that the prisoner had lodged on the third floor (an elegant suite of apartments) of 27, Duke-street, during the last two years and a half; that he was aman [man] of regular habits, and paid his bills with great punctuality. His father was described to be a man of larze [large] property at Wisbeach, [Beach] where he formerly carried on business as an extensive corn factor A large number of papers and documents were seized by Mr. Field, but nothing has yet been diseovered [discovered] which could by possibility explain the motive of the rash act. It is a curious co'ncidence [co'evidence] that Sergeant Silver, who téok [took] the prisoner into custody, is the same officer who appre- [paper- apprehended] hended [ended] M'Naughten [M'Naught] and knocked the pistol out of his hind as he was about to fire shot at the unfor- [unfair- unfortunate] tunate [tuna] Mr. Drummond. A reference to Hart's Army List shows that the prisoner entered her Majesty's service as a cornet by purchase, in the 10th Hussars, on the 5th of February, 1841. He was promoted to the rank of on the 22nd of July, 1842, and retired, by sale of his commission, a short time previously to the embarkation of the regiment for India in The prisoner is a respectable looking man and slightly bald. He wears mu tacheos, [mu teachers] but has not a very military appearance, HER MAJESTY'S RECEPTION AT THE ROYAL YPALIAN PLAIN] OPERA. There was an immense andience [audience] last night to the fourth representation of Meyerbeer's Prophete. [Prophet] The first act was over, and the skating divertissemert, [advertisement] which occupies a con- [considerable] siderable [considerable] portion of the second, was proceéding, [proceedings] when the performance was suddenly interrupted by a loud cry ftom [from] two or three voices in the pit, of Queen, the Queen- [Queen god] God save the Queen All eyes wére [were] tumed [timed] to-the Queen's box, at the front. of which Her Majesty ap- [appeared] peared [pared] alone, standing An impulse that was unanimous seemed at once to influence every pergon [person] in the theatre. 5 The whole audienge,. [audience] Me. Conta, [Cont] and. albtha [alba] meinbers [members] of the band, rose sinaultapeondly, [simultaneously] tn obedience to military rule, and one universal shout. demanded the national anthem. The performance of the opera was stopped, and in the space of two or three seconds the entire compatiy' [company] of the establishment appeared, as if by magie, [Maggie] on the stage. The band struck up tho welcome strain tha [that] first and so- [second] cond [con] verses were sung by Madame Castellan [Castle] and Madame Viardot [Viaduct] (who were both enguged [engaged] in the opera with tre- [te- tremendous] mendots [mends] applause, during which Grisi, [Grist] who happened to be in the house, made her appearance, just in time to sing the third, amidst reiterated cheering. LATEST INTELLIGENCE. BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH. Lonpbon, [London] HOUSE OF LORDS,-LAST NIGHT. Tie Rouse met at five o'clock. Lord Langdale occupied the weqolsack. [classic] After the presentation of a petition against the Liverpool Water Works Bill, which was referred to the committee.on the measure, the Landlord and Tenants (Ireland) Bill was, after a short discussion, read a third time and passed. THE AMPACK [Am pack] UPON THE QUEEN. Marquis of LaysDOWNE [Lansdowne] made a statement on this thject [reject] to the house...... Lord STANLEY expressed great in- [indignation] Cignation [Indignation] at tho mean and dastardly assault, and said that if am address had been moved to her Majesty, he should have supported it....... Lord BreucHaM [Brougham] expressed his full concwrence [conference] in the observations of the noble lord who had preceded him. 'he Small Tenements Recovery (Ireland) Bill was read & th ird [th id] time and passed. HOUSE OF COMMONS.-LAST NIGHT. THE ADJOURNED DEBATE. The adjourned debate was resumed by Mr. Cock- [Cocking] BURN, who replied to Mr. Gladstone's speech, and which he answered in detail. He concluded a very spirited address by supporting the resolution. The hon. and learned gentleman asked Sir R. Peel and Sir James Graham if they were prepared to take office in the event of the Government being defeated on this 'ques- [question] tion, [ion] They could not do so unless aided by the Pro- [Protectionists] tectionists, [protectionists] nor could the Protectionists take office with- [without] out their aid. He therefore assumed that there was & compromise, and he would venture to say whatever might be its terms, the honesty of the agreement would remain with the Protectionists. Asa representa- [present- representative] tive [tie] of the people he was entitled to ask if there. was such a compromise, and if so, what was its nature Was it to be a fixed duty or a sliding scale The hon. and learned member then sat down amidst continued cheers. . Mr. Watpote [Waited] replied to Mr. Cockburn's arguments and contended that Lord Aberdeen's foreign policy was far more likely to preserve the peace of the world than Lord Mr. M. MILNgs [Milnes] supported the resolution Mr. CoppEN [Copper] said the question involved no question of considerable or individual feeling, and he protested against its being in that shape. He then referred to the question of M. Pacifico's [Pacific's] claims, which were disgracefully exaggcerated,so [exaggerated,so] were others, and although there was great difficulty in ascertaining the amount Lord Palmerston, had no difficulty in deciding what should be claimed right or wrong. He then contended fora principle of non-intervention, by an adherence to which he believed the English government would do more to further con- [constitutional] stitutional [constitutional] freedom and the interests of humanity throughout the world than by perseverance in the course they now pursued, Sir R. PEEL was opposed to the resolution. He at great length reviewed the foreign policy of the present Goverument, [Government] and said that though on one or two octa- [Oct- occasion] sions [Sons] he did uot [not] consider it his duty to vote against that policy, yet-on the present occasion he couid [could] not by any means give his countenance to them. He blamed Lord Palmerston for having omitted to advise Mr. Wyse [Wise] of the treaty of London, when such advice might have arrived in time to stop the proceedings which had given so much umbrage to France. He further blamed the noble lord that he did not learn the consequences of the omission, and that when hostilities had beeu [been] re- [renewed] newed [need] he did not at once propose to France to agree to the principle of the iutervention [attention] which he contended was the best policy England could pursue whereby, by meddling with the affairs of other states, they world find themselves betraying the people, and even when they did succeed they would find that the institutions which they took under their patronage would never prove permanent, - - ASSAULT UPON THE QUEEN. EXAMINATION OF THE PRISONER-YESTERDAY, Robert Pate was brought up at the Home Office to-day, for examination before Mr. Hall, Chief Magistrate of Bow- [Bow street] street Police Court. Sir George Grey, Lord Fitzroy Somerset, and other officials, were present. The prisoner stands about six feet one inch in height, and looks a little above forty years of age. He is of slender make and stoops slightly. His appearance, manner, and dress, are ex- [extremely] tremely [extremely] gentlemanly. He appeared to be quite collected, and even indifferent, and so far as could be judged, there was nothing to indicate insanity. The witnesses whom were Col. Grey, Equery [Enquiry] to Her Majesty, and Mr. Robert Renwick, Sergeant Foot- [Footman] man to the Queen,) were called, and deposed to the facts attending the assault. At the close of their evidence, and upon the application of the Attorney General, the prisoner was remanded till Friday next at 12 o'clock. BANKRUPTS.
