[Room] The estimated policies at 30,000, The Orion was built by the eminent firm of Caird and Company, at Greeneck, [Greenock] and was launched in December, 1847. She was 700 tons burthen, [Burton] with large proportionate power to her tonnage. She was the finest steam-ship that ever sailed out of the Clyde, and made the quickest pas sages on record between Liverpool and this city. The Lord Advocate has announced that with respect to the late accident to the Orion steam-packet, he had. found it necessary to institute a prosecution against the master and second mate of that vessel, It is remarkable that during the thirty vears [ears] that steam has been maintained between Liverpool and asgow, [Glasgow] wp now not sino [sion] hi involving of he wes [West] on a single accident involving loss The Tartar steam-packet, belonging to Messrs. Burns (owners of the Orion), left the Broomiclaw [Brooms] on Tuesday af- [afternoon] ternoon [afternoon] with Mr. James Burns and Captain Douglas, the marine superintendent of the company, the engineer, and other officers, for the purpose of making every effort to save the vessel and recover the bodies, &c. The Tartar carried with her a quantity of clothing, blankets, provi- [prove- provisions] Sions, [Sons] &c., for those of the survivors who may stand in need of these necessaries and likewise a number of handsomely finished coffins fur the bedies [bodies] of the drowned. On reaching Portpatrick those on board the Tartar found that. twenty-three bedies [bodies] had been discovered, of which only a few were then claimed by their relatives. The bodics [bodies] were deposited in an empty tenement in the znmediate [animated] vicmity [vicinity] of the harbour, and presented one of the most ghastly and melancholy spectacles ever beheld. Here the infant, the young and delicate female, and the stout robust man fay, a heart-overpowering spectacle to contemplate. Among the terrible array were a mother and two daughters in the bloom of womanhood; two infants-brother and sister; a mother and two daughters, one about twelve years of age. It is said that a large amount of specia [special] is contained amongst the luggage-several parties who were intending to emigrate having had considerable sums with them. A French gentieman [gentleman] from the United States lost 400 in his luggege; [luggage] and another French gentleman 200, besides a quantity of diamonds and other valuables. It appears that the second mate of the Orion, named Williams, has been apprehended by the Wigtonshire [Victoria] autho- [author- authorities] rities, [cities] on some charge in connection with this unha [ina Py event and an investigation is being actively prosecuted. Amongst the singular instances of preservation which are related, perhaps one of the most curious is that of a gentle- [gentleman] man who found himself struggling in the water after the Orion sunk. Is doing so, his feet chanced to rest on the flat stern of the stern-boat, which fell from one of the davits, in consequence of the tackle having been cut-the bow end remaining fast to the other davit. When the ship sank the boat was carried down, but floated in mid-water, on end, with the stern above five feet under the surface. On this precarious resting-place, which kept in contiriual [control] motion with the action of the tide, he contrived to balance himself for some time but, with his increasing exhaustion, his foot- [footing] ing became more precarious, until at last he had all but lost it altogether, when he fortunately spied a piece of floating wood, which he reached and held on by until rescued by a at. THE WRECK OF THE Onion STEAM-VESSEL.-PORTPA- [STEAM-VESSEL.-PORT- PORTPATRICK] TRICK, JUNE 24.-Captain Denham, R.N., arrived here last night from London, and is now pursuing his inquiries rezpecting [respecting] the loss of this vessel. A female and child were got out of her yesterday, supposed to be Mrs. Scott, of Montreal, and her child. Her husband was one of those who unfortunately perished he was alive when brought on shore, but died in a few minutes. Her sister, Mrs. Smith, a widow lady, was also drowned she left ten children be- [behind] hind her at Montreal. Both families were on their way to Glasgow, their native town, to make arrangements for set- [settling] tling [ting] there. To-day three bodies were got out by the divers one of them is known to be a Glasgow merchant, but the other two have not been identified one was a about fifteen years old. Captain M'Neill, (Collinsay) [Collins] whose body has not been yet found, had his life insured for 20,000. Yesterday evening instructions were received from the Lord Advocate to apprehend Mr. Henderson, the commander of the Orion. The warrants were put into the hands of the police here this morning. We understand that he will be admitted to bail. A good deal of property in money and plate has been obtained to-day from the sunken vessel.- [vessel] Shipping Guzetie. [Gazette] -- THE EXHIBITION OF 1851.-A [W.-A] striking fact was men- [mentioned] tioned [toned] to us the other day, as illustrating the deep inte- [inter- interest] rest which the preparations for the industrial exhibition of 1851 have already excited throughout Europe. The land- [landlord] lord of a pretty large inn, in the busiest part of London, has applied to his landlord for leave to build an additional story to his house, in order to obtain increased accommo- [accommodate- accommodation] dation [nation] for the numerous visitors whom he expects next summer. The inn which he occupies contains some 90 cr 100 bed-rooms, and in addition to that, he has taken two houses adjacent, to prevent being over-crowded next year. Such, however, has been the demand for lodgings for the summer of 1851, especially from Germany, that the whole of his house, with the additions we have named, has already been engaged for nearly the whole of 1851, and he is now about te build an additional story, with a view to provide room for twenty or thirty more guests. If this may be taken as a fair sample of the coming events which 'cast their shadows before, the tavern keepers, shopkeepers, and cab-drivers of the metropolis, will hail the first of May, 1851, as the coming of the true golden age to them, at least, whatever it may be to other classes.-Leader. OPENING OF THE NEW Raltway [Railway] FROM BLACKBURN TO CLITHEROE.-That portion of the Bolton, Blackburn, Clitheroe, and West Yorkshire Railway, extending from Blackburn to Clitheroe, was opened on Thursday week The first sod of the railway was cut at the northern ter- [te- terminus] minus, Chatburn, in 1847. There are 54 bridges on the line, of which 44 are occupation bridges, 8 crossing public roads, and 3 crossing the Blackburn and Whalley turnpike road. The number of occupation level crossings is25. [is] The earth work has amounted to 940,640 cubic yards, and there are 2,020 lineal yards of culverts. At present only a single line of rails is laid down, but all the bridges have been built and banks formed for 2 double line. The entire length of the railway from Blackburn to Chatburn is about 123 miles, or exciuding [exciting] the portion traversing the East Lancashire through Blackburn, 1Z miles and 6 chains. The cost of the railway, when the double line is laid, will have been about 25,000 per mile. The whole of the works have been executed by Messrs. Nowell, Hattersley, and Shaw, under the skilful direction of Bir. [Sir] Briggs, the resident agent end superintendent. Resident engineer, J. Withers, Esq. Engineer in chief, T. Flanagan, Esq. The whole of the castings on the line have been executed by Mr. W. Yates, of Blackburn, in a manner highly creditable to his establish- [establishment] ment, [men] as proof of which we may mention that they elicited from Capt. Wynn, during his inspection of the two tubular bridges, the Low Moor bridge, &c., frequent expressions of admiration. .The event was eclebrated [celebrated] by an entertain- [entertainment] mert, [meet] given by the contractors, Messrs. Nowell, Hattersley, and Shaw, and were chiefly under the superintendence of Mr. Briggs, by whom about two hund [hind] invitations had been addressed to ladies and gentlemen interested, by resi- [rest- residence] dence [dene] or otherwise, in the railway.. A distinguished party availed themselves of the invitation, and were conveyed to 'a splendid marque erected at Chatburn, by means of a special train. Healths and complimentary speeches pre- [prevailed] vailed, [sailed] and all parties seemed delighted at the prospect of having the advantage of railway communication through the district. BLackBunn, [Blackburn] CLITHEROE, AND WEST York- [Yorkshire] SHIRE Raitway.-On [Railway.-On] the opening of this company's line for public traffic to Clitheroe, it appears the East Lanca- [Lance- Lancashire] shire Company blockaded the portion of the line of the latter company at Blackburn, over which the trains of the former company have to pass for a distance of three-quar- [three-quay- quarters] ters [tees] ofa [of] mile. The East Lancashire Company proposed to permit the Bolton Company to pass through Blackburn, if they would bind themselves to pay toll as for six miles in respect of the three-quarters of a mile traversed by the Bolton Company. All the attempts of the directors of the Bolton Company to effect an arrangement with the Lanca- [Lance- Lancashire] shire Company failed, and when the first train from Clithe- [Cloth- Clitheroe] rue arrived on Saturday morning it was found that a com- [complete] plete [plate] blockade of the points had been effected at the junc- [June- junction] tion [ion] with the East Lancashire Railway, and that upwards of 260 navigatcrs [navigators] had been brought on the ground by the latter company, with engines and a heavy train of stone- [waggonettes] waggons to obstruct the way. This disgraceful blockade contmued [continued] the whole of the day, and only one train was permitted to pass, on payment of a very heavy toll. On Monday morning Captain Laws, the managing director of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Company interfered, and the Bolton Companv's [Company's] trains have since been allowed to pass on ayment, payment] under protest, of the toll demanded by the East ancashire [Lancashire] Company. The Commissioners of Railways have been applied to, in accordance with the act, to decide the ternis [tennis] and conditions upon which the Bolton Company are to work their traffic on the East Lancashire Railway. The resident magistrates have forwarded a memorial to the Commissioners of Railways on the subject, pointing out the dangers to the preservation of the peace likely to ensue should matters not be speedily and amicably arranged,- [arranged] eines.

Ata [At] numerous meeting of the Halifax Short-time Com- [Committee] mittee [matter] for the protection of the Ten Hours Factery [Factory] Act, gonvened [convened] by circular, and keld [held] in the Working Man's Hail, Bull Closeane, [Closing] Halifax, en Sunday afternoon, June 23rd, 1850, delegates attended from the fullowing [following] mills -Dean Clough Mill (2); Woodside Shed (2); Holdsworth's, Shaw- [Shall] hill (2) Lee Bridge Mill (33; Dean Clough Shed (2) Cooper House Mill (1); King Cross Mill, No.1 (2); Kine Cross Mill, No. 2 (2); Copley Mill (2); Washer-lane Mill (2); Kebroyd [Broad] Mill (2); Stansfield Mill (1); Severlas [Several] Mill (1); Bottoms Mill (1); Cross-hill Mill (2); Shibden [Shorten] Mill (1); Salterley [Salter] Mill (2); Netherton Mill (1); Broadcar [Broad car] Mill (1); Greaves Mill (2); Whitley's Mill (1); 'Foundry-strect [Foundry-street] Mill (1); West Mill, Sowerby Bridge (2); Willow Hall Mill (2); Rarge [Large] Bank Mill (2); Stone Dam Mill (1); Lee Mill (1). Mr. JESSE OGDEN in the chair. Mr, JoserH [Joseph] CRrossLanps [Crossland] ruse and moved the first reso- [rose- resolution] lution [Lotion] in a short but telling speech, condemnatory of the government fur aticmpting [attempting] to rob the factory workers of that which had been ceded to them, and which he con- [considered] sidered [resided] te be held as sacred a3 the nights of property - That this meeting denounces in the strongest manner that language can depict the attempts made on the part of pretended friends on the one hand, and the treachery of government on the other, by breaking faith with what had been previously ceded by all the forms of law in John Fielden's act of 1847, and whick [which] secured to all young per- [persons] sons and women a linitation [invitation] of 58 hours a week. Mr. WM. JENNIN S [JENNING S] seconded the resohition, [resolution] and said he concurred in the sentiments just expresed [expressed] by the mover, and then went on to say that if the government measure was forced upon the people, he was sure it would not scttle [settle] the question and the people would therefore make every exertion to obtain that which they had lone been seeking. The resolution was then put and carried. Mr. URian [Urban] HINcHLi rE [Hinchliff rE] moved the second resolution, and expressed himself warmly upon the subject. He said if parents would submit to the 15 hours range and have their children dragged from their hemes [homes] in all seasons of the year, and at untimely hours, they would submit to any- [anything] thing but he knew they never would. After some further remarks he moved the following resolution -'That this meeting is of opinion that the factory workers of the Halifax district will never rest satisfied until the factory day of the child be made the same as young persons and women-inasmuch as there will be two factory days, one for young persons and women with a 12 hours range; whilst the factory day of relays of children ranges 15 hours per day this meeting thinks it discreditable that children from 8 to 13 years of age should be compelled to rise much earlier and work much later than those of maturer years. Mr. JoHN [John] MILLS seconded the resolution, observing that if the relay system was carried out it 'would have a great influence on the wages question. In some parts of the country where the population was only thin, this system would draw children from the agricultural districts, by this means the labour of young persons and women would be- [become] come a glut in the market, and therefore the labour of that class of persons would be depressed. He then dwelt on the inhumanity of this measure, and concluded by heartily seconding the resolution. The third resolution was moved by Mr. J. SUNDERLAND, seconded by a DELEGATE from Brook Mill, and supported by Mr. R, Witkrnsoxn, [Withernsea] who condemned the vacillating conduct of government, and said rather than the factory workers should be robbed of the two hours per week, he would hail with pleasure the throwing out of the bill altogether; for this boon had been granted after a struggle of 25 years, and had by all the forms of the constitution. When the measure was ratified by her Majesty she was presented with a gold medal, on which was inscribed 'The Ten Hours Bill. This token, though not perhaps valuable itself, was nevertheless a token of the gratitude of the people for the blessings conferred by thelegislature [the legislature] upon thefactory [the factory] women and children of England. The resolution was as follows - That this meeting considers that the present vacillating conduct manifested by her Majesty's government on the Ten Hours Bill, is calculated to weaken our attachment to the institutions of our country, and obliterate from our minds all respect for the sacredness of law. It was then by one of the delegates- That a petition, founded on the resolutions passed at this meeting, be prepared for presentation in the House of Lords. The resolution, having been seconded, was put and car- [carried] ried [red] unanimously. . Mr. R. then proposed the following resolu- [resolute- resolution] tion, [ion] and in doing so said that he had been induced to submit it for their consideration, because, as the delegate of the Halifax Short Time Committee in London, he had had ample opportunity of witnessing the praiseworthy con- [conduct] duct of the hon. members referred to. He passed a high eulogium [Belgium] on the conduct of Lerd [Lord] John Manners, Mr. Disraeli, and especiaily especially] upon the zeal and untiring de- [devotedness] votedness [witness] of Mr. H. Edwards to the Ten Hour cause - That the thanks of this meeting are due to Lord John Manners, Mr. Edwardr, [Edward] Mr. Disraeli, and all our friends in the House of Commons, for their endeavours to secure to the factory workers, young persons, women, and children, the entire efficiency of the Ten Hours Bill, and that we beg they will advocate our children's interests until the same be made the law of the land. We further pray that they will give their kind efforts to induce the House of Lords to take espccial [special] measures to secure to the children, young persons, and women, that protection which their tender age and hell2ss [Hall's] condition require. The resolution was seconded by one of the delegates, and carried with acclamation. . It was then moved, seconded, and carried unanimously - That the thanks of this meeting are given to R. Oastler, Esq., and all our friends out of parliament, for their kindly aid in our cause. --- ee A vote of thanks was passed to Mr. R. Wilkinson, the delegate of the short time committee, for his firm and un- [unflinching] flinching conduct while upholding the rights of the factory labourer. . Thanks having been voted to the chairman, the meeting separa [separate] OO Lorp [Lord] PaLMERSTON.-On [Palmerston.-On] Saturday, at one a deputation, consisting of nearly ninety members of the House of Commons, waited upon Lady Palmerston, at the family mansion in Carlton Gardens, by appointment, and presented to her ladyship a full-length portrait of Viscount Palmerston, with an address expressive of the high sense they entertained of his lordship's public and private cha- [ca- character] racter, [Carter] The fact of the intended presentation of this por- [or- portrait] trait has been repeatedly alluded to since August last, when the subject was first mooted by a party of members of the lower house, admirers of the political and private character of Lord Palmerston. IntsH [Into] importations of horses which are at the present time taking place at the metropolis from Ire- [Ireland] land are so large as to be quite remarkable, and of conside- [consider- considerable] rable [able] interest and importance. The steam-vessel, Duchess of Kent, which has arrived in the river from Cork, has brought, in addition to 33 oxen and 210 sheep, the very large number of 42 horses, as a portion of a large cargo cf Irish produce and the steamer, Preussischer [Pressure] Adler, ar- [arrived] rived on the same cay from Cork, has brought in addition to 176 sheep and lambs, and a quantity of calves and horned cattle, 24 horses, as part of a very large gencral [general] cargo, the produce of Ireland. Several importations to the latter-mentioned extent have taken place lately from Ire- [Ireland] land, but the arrival on one occasion of so large a number of horses as were brought in this instance by the first-named vessel is entirely without precedent from.that country. ANOTHER Story OF A MIRACLE IN THE ROMAN STATES, -The Osservatore [Overture] Romano publishes a letter from Fossom- [FOSS- Sombre] brone, [borne] of the Ist [Its] instant, announcing that another miracu- [miraculous- miraculous] lous [loud] image of the viryin [virgin] has commenced to move its eyes in that town, Except its smaller size, it is the exact copy of that of the Very Rev. Fathers of the most Precious Blood at Rimini, [Mini] and belongs to a woman called the Fattora, [Factory] to whom it was madz [made] a présent [present] on her wedding by 2 monsig- [mons- monsignor] nor who is not named. It is added that this image began to move its eyes almost at the same time as that of Riiini, [Ruin] and the miracle was first observed in private by the owner and some of her female friends. The bishop, Monsienor [Monsieur] Ugolini, [Olin] afterwards got it placed in the Episcopal Chapel. A commission of theologians, named to give its opinion, declared itself satisfied of the fact, and made a favourable report, in consequence of which the statue was transported to the cathedral, where, says the letter, it now cures the halt, the blind, the dumb, and the deaf. Immeérse [Immense] sums have already been received for alms by the church on account of this wonderful miracle . A fine roe trotted through the streets of Aberdcen [Aberdeen] one night lately, and, being pursued by some watchmen, jumped over a bridge and was killed on the spot. Louis PHILIPrE's [Philip's] ForTUNE.-The [Fortune.-The] visit of MM. Guizot Duchatel, [Detail] and Dumon [Demon] to Louis Philippe has given rise to the report that the reconciliation of the two branches of the house of Bourton is nearly complete, and that the distine- [distinct- distinction] tion [ion] between Le sitimist [Mitis] and Orleanist [Orleans] is hengeforth [therefore] to cease. It appears, that both the Duchess of Orleahs [Orleans] ind the of Joinville [Corneille] continue their opposition to the reconciliation. It is said that Louis Philippe's fortune is divided by his will among his children and grand-children, in it equal parts, and that the share of cach [each] wilt be 500, 060f. [f] (20,000f.) [20,f] per annum; so that Louis Philippe's private fortune, not- [notwithstanding] withstanding the great. depreciation within the last two years, amounts to 160,000 sterling a year.- [year] Morning Chrozicle, [Chronicle] , THE POSTAL ARRANGEMENTS OF KIRKBURTON AND NEIGHBOURHOOD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRGNICLE. [CHRONICLE] Sir,-The decision of the Postmaster Gencral, [General] in re'er- [reference] ence [once] to closing the Post-offices on Sunday, has no effect on the localities of Kirkburton, Shelly, Skchnanthorpe, [Skelmanthorpe] Clay- [Clayton] ton-west, [west] Denbydale, [Dental] &c., &e., for this reason there was previously either delivery nor reccipt [receipt] at either of those offices on that day. But, Mr. Editor, there is a grievance which the inhabitants ef these townships feel, and which the authorities ought immediately to redress, end which, I trust, your insertion of this letter in your excellent and im- [in- improving] proving Chronicle will lead to-namely, the whole of the inhabitants of the fie places named, and whose number is severel [severe] thousands, heave no delivery of letters or newspapers on Tuesday, nor can any leticr [lecture] be forwarded from either place on Tuesday afternoon. J posted a letter to London at the Kirkburton post-office on a Tuesday, about 3 pm., and judge of my surprise, when the cover was returned, and Tfound [Found] that letter didnot [didn't] leave the Huddersfield post- [post office] office until Wednesday evening 63 o'clock, hours after I posted it at Kirkburton. This shameful de- [delay] lay calls for an exposure, and the remedy I know is plain.

S1r,-In [Sir,-In] your report of the annual meeting of the Hud- [HUD- Huddersfield] dersfield [Huddersfield] Commissioners, it is stated that Mr. R. Brock complained that the principle of borrowing money was not a orrect correct] one; but, im [in] this réspeet, [respect] his opinion was called in question by the chairman. Now, I simply stated that the principle of borrowing money, and repaying it in thirty years, in thirty equal instalments-that the 'spreading out the repayment, during a period of thirty years, under the pretence of relieving the present ratepayers, was a delusion; and if any one has a doubt on the subject, let him consult the following -I take the present acknow- [acne- acknowledged] ledged [ledge] debt of the Commissioners, and suppese [suppose] that it was borrowed in January, 1850, to be repaid, one thirtieth, every year with the interest upon that which remains un- [unpaid] paid, until the whole be liquidated.

This identical loan of 7,862 will cost the town 13,962 4s. 7d. I know it is said that the expense falls upon private individuals, and not on the ratepayers but, if the principle be a bad one, it should be dealt with accordingly. We have no more right to rob (a Commissioner's phrase) privaté [private] individuals than we have to rob the general body. Let us try the difference between this borrowing system and the system of common sense. Admitting the necessity of these improvements, surely they are not so absolutely necessary as to require all doing ina day. We have seen that it costs us 5,962 to pay off a debt of 2,620 upon the borrowing system. Now, one additional rate of 1s. 8d. in the pound, during the ten years, would raise all the money required (and surely ten years is no long time to effect our improvements in); after which the town would neither have debt nor interest to contend with. Tam the more anxious in this matter, because I have reason to believe that we are only at the beginning, I know if the thing goes on unchecked, that the debs will very scon [son] amount to the sum allowed by the act 50,000) [50,W] ; the interest alone, of which, together with the annual in- [instalment] stalment, [statement] amounting, as it will, to more than 4,000 a year, would be sufficient to effect all, and more than all the improvements that the town requires. I could have added more, by way of elucidating the ruinous consequences of this system, but am desirous to avoid trespassing upon your columns, and will conclude, by stating that it is the in these transactions, which is the cause of the mischief. It will be seen by the above table, that, in ten years, we shall have paid off the debi, [Deb] 2,620 13s. 4d., while of interest we shali [shall] have paid 3,341 9s. 11d. Yours truly RICHARD BROOK. A MELTHaM [Meltham] May's FIRST VIEW OF A RAILWAY TRAIN.-The following authentic narrative has just been brought under our notice, and we think it would be a pity to deprive the pub'ic of it. Three old cronies of the male gender, living at Mel ham, were in the habit of meeting together, to talk over private and public affairs. Railways being mentioned, it was discovered that none of the worthy trio had ever seen one. They had heard, perhaps read of its wondrous powers of locomotion, had shook their saze [size] heads at the fatal accidents, and alarming collisions, and felt thankful they had never been subjected to such dangers and doubtful modes of conveyance. As all the world knows the line of railway between Huddersfield and Man- [Manchester] chester was opened last year,-in the rational course of things this infirmation [information] reached Meltham, and in due time found its way to thesé [these] three. individuals... Their curiosity was a little aroused-after all they should like to know what sort of an affair a railway was, and the result of this their thirst after information, was a determation [determination] to send one of their party to Marsden, to there look at a real rail- [railway] way, and then return with a faithful description to those he had left behind him. The commissioner or inspector, or whatever you like to call him, accordingly. set out on a fine day on his exploring expedition. He at length reached and leaving the turnpike road, took his stand on an eminence above the entrance of the famed Standedge [Standing] tunnel. Here he had a good view of the tortuous windings of the various rails, very likely wondering what on earth they could all be for; when suddenly to his. startled vision a mighty monster appeared in the shape of a railway train, rushing towards the tunnel, and giving utterance to the usual shrill whistle, at once the bowels of the mountain. The enterprising travellér [traveller] had witnessed enough, Instantly ke turned his steps towards Meltham, big with the astonishing intelligence he had to convey. He arrived thero [there] and found his comrades waiting for hiin., [hon] He gave them a description of his journey, and stated huw [how] he attained an eminence commanding a favourable view of the railway. The rest-save will give in his own words - Hod (I had) been standiiig [standing] there varry [Barry] little when I saw a long black thing coming as sharp as leetning, [learning] and putting and recking [rocking] loike [like] mad, wx os soin, [soon] as iver il suw [saw] me, it set Up grett [great] serecam, [sere cam] un van into hoile.

A comparison of the present rate of wages with the price of coal and the comparative price of coal and labour some years ago, shows tbat [that] the colliers have little reason to complain. In April, 1844, the price of coal was 7s, 6d. per ton, and up to the end of last year it was faised [raised] to 9s. 6d. per ton. On that rise 6d. per ton was added to the miners' wages but the coal is now re- [reduced] duced [duce] to 7s, 6d. per ton again, and the wages are now re- [reduced] duced [duce] 2d. per ton, An American speculator has offered. 5,000 for bippe- [bop- hippopotamus] potamus, [pots] to be delivered to him in Alexandria, but cha [ca] not succeeded. in finding a hunter bold enough to dare the dangers of the White Nile.
