THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, AUGUST 31, 1850. 5 HUDDERSFIELD HORTICULTURAL THE MAND [AND] FLORAL SHOW. ond [and] annual exhibition of the Huddersfield Horti- [Hot- Hotties] sec 4 Floral Society, was held on Thursday last, in an Ground, Halifax-road, which during the day by a numerous and fashionable assemblage of beauty of the town and neighbourhood, whose the ontributed [contributed] additional and lively interest to the pre pret [pre] of the committee for the exhibition T made with great judgment, and were charac- [character- character] had bee ually [ally] by their simplicity and completeness, Ex- [Expressed] perized [prizes] oni [on] the lower portion of the ground, to the right pending trance, they had erected a beautiful covered tent, of the oi and 36 feet wide, down the centre and on et nf which ran tables, for the flower, fruit, and table stands. There was an opening at each end, and vege [vere] jucĂ© [June] was divided, by separate side entrances, into the mar rtments, [rudiments] for the productions under the respective four nurserymen, gentlemen's gardeners, amateur classes [C] and cottagers The arrangement of the plants, veretables, [vegetables] was under the able superintendence ts of Wakefield, assisted by Messrs. Stans- [Stand- Statesman] Me and Mansley. The interior appearance be was light and attractive, relieved here ote [ot] by bunches and wreaths of evergreens. and ee from these considerations of the mateviel [material] features ms we turn to the more pleassing [pleasing] but delicate of an br i 'ing under our notice its inanimate contents-for duty not stumble with our criticismson [criticism son] thegraceful [the graceful] galaxy re beauty, which promenaded and adorned its af ae Dut [Du] where must we begin On every side, the is corullas, [gorillas] With their infinitely varied tinted petals, Oe agg [ag] tholt [Holt] sweetest perfume-the luscious melon, pine ae plum, and grape-the epicurean luxuries of ape bers, [bees] vegetable marrows, mushrooms, and celery- [celery] oe resenting claims, though different, but equally im- [in- time] te ae Following the bent of cur own taste, we would rather Iuxuriate, [Accurate] as it were, amongst the magnificent iliums, [alms] graceful fuschias, [fuchsias] geraniums, and petunias-the ch and gorgeous dahlia and cockscomb-than pass our time in meditations on carrots, cabbage, and turnips-useful pltilitarian [utilitarian] articles, certainly, but humble and unimagi- [uni magi- unimaginative] native-or [or] even in preference to gazing with a wistful long- [longing] ing eye on the delicacies of the dessert table. But where- [wherever] ever we turned our observation, the same high quality and standard of culture was evident equally amongst the less assuming produce of the cottage, as in the more aspiring productions of the nursery and the hothouse. We would offer our gratulations [congratulations] to the competitors in dass [ass] four (the cottagers) for, not only did they look well, but took a position of favourable comparison with their more professional and wealthy exhibitors. The first prize of peas, kidney potatoes, cucumbers, dahlias, petunias, foschias. [fuchsias] and lilliums, [Williams] were deserving of more special notice. The other classes reflected the highest credit on the com- [competitors] petitors, [competitors] anid [and] contained some of the finest specimens of indigenous and exotic flowers, fruits, and vegetables. Per- [Perhaps] haps a more beantiful [beautiful] selection of lilliums [Williams] seldom would be found gathered in a provincial show their richness of tint and colwuriug-their [Coleridge-their] gracefulness and symmetry of form- [form their] their delicacy and exquisite beauty, were the subjects of general auiration. [oration] Nor did the beautiful pendant fuschias [fuchsias] wt artistic petunias and geraniums pass unnoticed whilst many a luaging [lagging] gaze was cast upon the luscious fruits, as ther [the] lay grouped in tantalising temptation-provoking thoughts, but denying their realization. Suspended in different parts of the tent, and on the tables, were exhibited about 16U [U] specimens of grasses, labelled, as also about 9) kinds of yrass [brass] and other agricultural seed, from the nursery (St. John's) of Mr, William Barrett, Wakefield. In the designing department a very high degree of skill was distJayed, [displayed] and we need do no more than express our admiration of the beautiful monumental pillar, with its unique fyuntain, [fountain] dedicated to the memory of Sir R. Peel, worked by Mr. Thornton, of Cowecliffe [Cowcliffe] the beautiful minia- [minis- miniature] ture [true] garden, by Mr. J. Kershaw, of Brighouse; and the ad- [admirable] mirable [marble] imitation of a Chinese pagoda, surmounted by a crown resting on a hassock, designed and manipulated by Mr. Walter Thurkill, [thrill] of Sheepclose. [Sheep close] We believe the entries were largely increased upon'the previous show, and the quality was in every respect superior. The onerous duty of judging devolved upon Messrs. Wilson, Cannon Hall; John Simpson, Bradford ; James Tate, Halifax; James Sykes, Mill-house, Sowerby; Law, Wortiey [Wortley] Hall; James Atkinson, Sheffield; Partridge, Blake Hail, Mirfield; Cork, Grange Hall; Lodge, Lower Broughton, Manchester; Clegg, Manchester; Tinker, Byram Hall; Hume, Bretton Hall; Baines, Halifax; Bel- [Belt] tou, [to] and Baines and Edwards, of York. The de- [decisions] cisions [visions] were characterised by great impartiality and judg- [judge- judgment] ment. [men] The The Second West-Yorkshire Yeomanry Band was in attendance, and enlivened the pleasures of the day by an excellent programme of the popular music of the ball-room and the orchestra.

Sarah Ann Thompson was charged by Inspector Townend with conducting herself in a very improper manner, in Cross-church-street, on Tuesday last, and annoying the foot passengers. She stated herself as coming from Oldham, on her way to Leeds. Committed to Wakefield for fourteen days.- [days] Sarah Ann Firth was laced in the dock for a similar offence on the night of Tuesday, in different parts of the town The defendant is only about fifteen years of age, and it was represented that the conduct of her father had driven her to the streets, The bench recommended her to be sent to the poor-house, -Bridgett Gallarny [Gallant] was summoned for being drunk and disorderly, and on being committed for fourteen days to Wakefield, replied she did not care if it was for fourteen months. DEFENDER FIRE AND LIFE INSURANCE OFFICE.-We observe, with much pleasure, that this institution has adopted the plan of weekly payments in its department of life assurance, and will give credit for the premiums during sickness or want of employment. These arrangements will place the facilities for the important duty of life assu- [as- assurance] rance [France] within the means of the working-classes, many of whom have been hitherto deterred from taking of such societies, from the fact that the payments could not do, Walter be made in small sums, BROTHERHOOD WITHOUT FRATERNITY.-A violent old man, named Paul Mellor, turned three score years, made h's appearance, at the Guildhall, on Tuesday last, as com- [complainant] plainant [plain ant] against his brother, John Mellor, who was a few years his junior, both of Castle-hill side, on a charge of assault. e bench not being at all anxious to increase the evident ill-feeling existing between the parties, sug- [su- private] & private arrangement, which, however, did not meet the concurrence of the plaintiff and defendant. The case was, therefore, proceeded with, and it manifested a exhibition of antipathy and bad feeling. The substance of the complaint appeared briefly as follows - On the 18th inst. Paul had found some poultry belonging to his brother in his corn field, and had gone ina very illnatured [illuminated] manner to talk to himonthesubject. Very high words en- [ensued] sued, and a handful of dirt was thrown at the complainant by the defendant. The offence, according to Paul's account, consisted in his brother chasing him for nearly a hundred yards, under a volley of stones as thick and fast as the cannon balls at Waterloo. But the story was evidently coloured, and the bench accordingly, in the absence of sub- [substantiation] stantiation, [sanitation] discharged the case. THE EXHIBITION OF 1851. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE. Sir,-Several parties have applied to me to know whether or not power would be provided for working engines or machines at the great Exhibition of 1851. I should feel much obliged if you would allow me, through the medium of the Chronicle, to lay the follow- [following] ing letter from one of the Royal Commissioners, to one of our local secretaries, before the public. I am, Sir, your obedient servant, WILLIAM WILLANS, Chairman of the Huddersfield Committee. Huddersfield, 30th Aug., 1850. Office for the Executive Committee, 1, Old Palace Yard, Westminster, 17th August, 1850. Sir,-I am directed by the Executive Committee to ac- [acknowledge] knowledge the receipt of your note of the 15th of August, and to say in reply to the questions put by ' as to whether there will be a tank, or good supply of water provided by the Exhibition, that water will be supplied, gratuitously, to exhibitors, at high pressure, perhaps of feet. The steam-power, as mentioned in paragraph 15 of the Decisions wil be as far as 30lbs. [lbs] per inch. A common road-engine may be exhibited, but the arrangements for running it must be an open question for the present. Cocks, valves, and a hydraulic machine maybe exhibited in action. There is no general fund to assist inventors, but some Local Committeeshave [Committee shave] made a special fund forthepurpose. [purpose] I am, Sir, your obedient servant, M. DIGBY WYATT, Secretary. (Pro Osmond Jones.) Frederick Greenwood, Esq., Huddersfield. --- - -- - THE New Factory Act aT MACCLESFIELD.-The Macclesfield silk throwsters [rosters] and manufacturers have now commenced working their mills under the new act,- [act] working from six a.m. to six p.m., allowing half an hour for breakfast and an hour for dinner, and closing their mills at one and two on Saturday afternoon. Some masters pay the operatives an advance in wages for the two hours and a half per week gained by working till six o'clock p.m., while, on the other hand, those who cease working their mills at one o'clock on Saturday pay their hands nothing additional for the extra one hour and a half. THE oF EXETER AND Mr. GorHam.-Although [Graham.-Although] the Bishop of Exeter does not intend taking immediate proceedings against Mr. Gorhom, [Groom] in the Arches Court, it 1s pretty certain that before many weeks shall have passed the contest between the two great theological champions will be 1evived. [revived] The bishop has urged upon the church- [churchwardens] wardens of Bramford Speke the necessity of informing him ofany [of any] statements that may be made by Mr. Gorham on the subject of baptism; but as the testimony of village churchwardens might not be of a very weighty character in a court of law, a short-hand writer in London has been engaged to attend at Bramford Speke church, with a view to supply a verbatim report of Mr. Gorham's sermons, es- P cial'y [coal'y] those preached by the rev. gentleman on reading himself into the benefice, a ceremony which is expected to take place on the last Sunday in October.- [October] Weekly Chronicle. Sunday afternoon a party of labouring men and their wives, all more or less intoxicated, were return- [returning] ing from Battersea, where they had been spending the afternoon, when, off the houses of parliament, a Mrs. Shad- [Shad brook] brook, in a fit of jealousy threw herself overboard. Mr. Shadbrook, [Shad brook] though unable to swim, leaped in to save his wife; the unfortunate woman, however, was not seen to rise again, and her husband was with difficulty dragged into the boat. The body was not recovered. DRINKING BRANDY FOR A WAGER.-On Monday morn- [morning] ing, about five, a young man on the establishment of Mr. Norcke, [Neck] marble-dealer, of King William-strect, [William-street] Charing- [Chronographs] cross, died, under the following circumstances -It appears that the deceased, on Sunday night, agreed with some companions, for a trifling wager, to drink a pint of brandy and then walk to London-bridge. It is believed that he accomplished the wager, and was then conveyed home, where he remained in a state of stupor till the hour above- [above mentioned] mentioned, when he died. The necessary information has been forwarded to the coroner for an inquest on the body. THE QUEEN's VISIT TO BELGIUM.-Ostend, [BELGIUM.-Intend] which has hitherto been remarkable for nothing but its dullness, was enlivened on Thursday week by the visit of the English Queen. At an early hour in the morning everybody had turned out, and the great competition seemed to be who should first catch a glimpse of the royal squadron. Soon after nine o'clock drums began to beat the rappel in all quarters, to collect the soldiery from their various billets ; and about ten o'clock the sight of three or four companies of the corps d'eltte [d'letter] marching along the quays, with some half-dozen of dry drums, -that is, without any accom- [com- accompaniment] paniment-rolling [payment-rolling -rolling] away at the head of the column, con densed [denied] the scattered numbers of the crowd, and brought them up to the steam-boat jetty, where the men took up their position, forming two sides of a square, one of which was at right angles to the river. Soon after the full strains of a fine brass band announced the approach of more troops ; and a couple of companies of the 7th regiment of the line. wheeling round by the custom house stockade, formed into line, so as to form another side of the square, which was then completed by the jetty front, where the packets lie, just opposite the Douane. [Done] Another half-hour and the little squadron could be discerned with the naked eye; a few minutes more and, to a practised vision, the identities of each vessel established themselves, There came the royal yacht in the van, then the little Fairy, then the Vivid after her the Admiralty yacht, the Black Eagle and, nearly hull-down in the dis- [distance] tance, [lance] the Stromboli. In this order the ships swept on, and about half-past eleven o'clock the royal yacht dashed up the narrow entrance between the two piers which lead to the harbour. Her Majesty was dressed in plain silk mourning. Prince Albert wore a black frock coat and trousers, and the young princes were attired as sailors, in little black glazed hats, round jackets, and wide pantaloons. The royal yacht hauled up alongside of the pier about twelve o'clock. At one, five of the royal carriages drove into the square, in obedience to a message from the yacht, and soon afterwards King Leopold, with uncovered head, led her Majesty along the gangway from the deck, and handed her into the principal equipage. The crowd cheered vigorously as soon as they perceived the Queen ; every hat was off, and as Prince Albert followed with the royal children, the cheering was renewed, the troops closing up the demonstration with three military cheers. The royal suite having got into the other carriages after an in- [interval] terval, [alter] followed her Majesty, who, preceded by outriders, had slowly driven to the royal residence. Her reception was very gratifying, very quiet, but full of sentiment and respect. 'A dejeuner [Jenner] a la fourchette was prepared for the royal party, after partaking of which, the queen, King Leopold, Prince Albert, and the royal children took a drive to the West Sands, where they got out and walked for alittle, [little] return- [returning] ing to town in about half an hour. In the evening her majesty dined with the King of the Belgians at his house, and Sir F. T. Baring and Lord A. Fitzclarence [Interference] had the honour of receiving invitations to join the royal party. In the evening her majesty, Prince Albert, and the royal chil- [child- children] dren [den] retired on board the royal yacht, and were visited early on the Friday morning by King Leopold and his aide- [added] de-camps. [camps] Having learnt of Captain Smithett [Smith] the latest hour which the tide would permit them to remain on shore, the royal party landed, and after promenading for some time on the sea wall, returned about half past eleven to the palace, where a dejeuner [Jenner] had been provided by order of his majesty. 'The royal party embarked about one o'clock, after taking a warm parting farewell of King Leopold and his attendants. The royal yacht then steamed out in com- [company] pany [any] with the Vivid and the Stromboli. They were tele- [tee- telegraphed] graphed off Dover on Friday evening. Shortly after day- [daylight] light on Saturday morning the royal yacht appeared out- [outside] side the Nab light-vessel, steering in. As she approached the anchorage she received royal salutes from the guns of the Blenheim, 60, Captain W. H. Henderson, C.B. dressed in and also from the Thetis, [This] 38, Captain Kuper, [Upper] C.B. that had arrived during the night from Plymouth. The Victoria and Albert passed the shipping at about five o'clock she was closely followed by the Fairy, royal tender, Master Commander Welsh, and the Vivid, packet steamer, Master Commander Luke Smithett, [Smith] one on each quarter. The Black Eagle, admiralty yacht, master com- [commander] mander [Marden] R. Cooke, followed about two or three miles astern. Two Belgian steamers also followed, about eight or ten miles astern. The royal yacht reached Cowes Roads about half-past five o'clock, having been absent just sixty hours from the time of her first starting from that anchorage. The Elfin royal despatch vessel left Portsmouth about five a.m., for wes, [West] with despatches and letters for her majesty and the court. The royal party landed at Osborne at seven o'clock and soon after nine o'clock the squadron dispersed. How 10 Nores [Sores] HAVE BEEN Lost.-An amusing scene occurred just previous to the close of the Midland Railway meeting, at Derby, on Friday last. The chairman asked if any gentleman had lost two 10 pound notes, as two such been found in the room Amid loud laughter the chairman's question was answered by about 100 voices exclaiming, We have all lost 10 notes, This is just the place for empty pockets. The chairman afterwards intimated that an owner had been found for the notes. AN ELEPHANT AL LARGE.-A curious incident occurred during the fair at Redditch, in consequence of the large elephant belonging to Batty's menagerie having fancied a midnight stroll in the garden behind the hos (the Fox and Goose), in which it had a temporary abode. It managed to force open the door of the place in which it was confined, and it being beneath his dignity to climb the wall, several yards of bricks and mortar were speedily levelled, but this was only a commencement of the work of demolition, A large apple-tree was despoiled of fruit and branches, pear and gooseberry trees shared the same fate, rows of celery and beds of carrots disap [dis] in the ani- [an- animal] mal's [al's] capacious maw, and, by way of exercise after such a hearty meal, he was en in ing firewood of a large laburnum tree, when one of the watchmen was attracted to the spot. The assistance of the keeper was obtained, and the monster was again secured. Mr. Batiy [Batty] reimbursed the landlord for the damage which had been done, THE QUEEN'S VISIT TO SCOTLAND. HER MAJESTY IN YORKSHIRE. The royal party left Osborne on Tuesday morning, at eight proceeding by the South-Western Railway, and reached London about eleven. Every preparation had been made for the departure of the royal party from the Euston station at half-past eleven o'clock; but, owing to the visit of condolence paid by the Queen and Prince Albert to the family of the late King of the French, it was twelve o'clock when they arrived. Mr. Glyn, M.P. (chairman of the board of dircctors), [directors] Mr. Creed, Mr. Stewart (the secretary), Mr. Bruyere, [Buyer] and various other officials connected with the company, were in attendance to receive her Majesty. Sir George Grey, who accompanies her Majesty to Scot- [Scotland] land, as Secretary of State, was at the station for some time previous to the arrival of the royal cortege. The Marchioness of Douro, who succeeded Viscountess Can- [Canning] ning [nine] as lady in waiting, was also in attendance. The royal party arrived exactly at twelve accom- [com- accompanied] panied [pained] by General Wemyss, Col. Gordon, and Colonel Phipps, and were received by Mr. Glyn. The royal carriage was splendidly fitted up, and a large crown, wrought in flowers, and the royal standard, were con- [conspicuous] spicuous [conspicuous] on the powerful engine which was to convey her Majesty and suite. Owing to the liberality of the railway managers, a large number of the public were admitted to see the royal departure. When the royal party entered their carriage they were most loudly cheered, which her Majesty and Prince Albert, and the royal children acknowledged in the most gracious manner. The Midland Railway Station in Leicester was besieged by applicants for tickets of admission while her Majesty, Prince Alberti, [Albert] and the royal children passed throngh, [through] on their way to Scotland. The railway authorities had placed a long line of empty carriage trucks and coal waggons on each side of the main line, to serve as plat- [platforms] forms for spectators, and as early as twelve o'clock, two hours before the train was expected, the entrances were thronged by persons anxious to secure a good place. At one o'clock the doors were opened, and the two long ranges of trucks and waggons were speedily filled, the company thus accommodated consisting of the Mayor and family, Town Clerk and family, the Borough Magistrates, members of the Town Council, nearly all the principal inhabitants of the town, and a number of persons from the neighbouring villages. Thousands of persons, who were unable to obtain admission to the station, lined the banks of the railway above and below it, every spot commanding a view of the line being densely crowded. A body of pensioners in uniform, and fully accoutred, under the command of Major Hawkes, were stationed on each side of the line along which her Majesty passed, and the Duke of Rutland's mili [mile] band occupied one of the waggons above alluded to. From one to two o'clock several brisk showers of rain fell, but there was no disposition to move manifested by thespectators. [the spectators] Attwenty [At twenty] minutes to three o'clock the royal party reached the station, and the steam having been previously turned off, the train movedslowly [moved slowly] past, the band playing the national anthem, and the spectators evincing their loyalty by loud huzzas, and waving of hats and handkerchiefs, gracefully acknow- [acne- acknowledged] ledged [ledge] by her Majesty. On reaching Syston Station, five miles north of Leicester, the train stopped about five minutes to take in water. At that place about 500 of the principal in- [inhabitants] habitants of the neighhourhood [neighbourhood] had assembled, and ranged themselves on either side of the railway. The station, the lamp-posts, &c., were decorated with ever- [evergreens] greens and flowers, a representation of an imperial crown, decorated with dahlias, was exhibited in front of the station; a blue and white flag, belonging to an Odd- [Oddfellows] fellows' Lodge, was hoisted from the top; a white flag, with the motto, God save the Queen, floated in the breeze from an adjoining building, and a gaily de- [decorated] corated [Coated] carriage-truck contained the village band, which played the national anthem, whilst the spectators joined in chorus or rent the air with huzzas and other excla- [excel- exclamations] mations [nations] expressive of their loyalty. Her Majesty and suite arrived at Castle Howard Station, at six o'clock. On her Majesty alighting the band of the 2nd Dragoons played the national anthem, the guards of hon- [honour] our presented arms, and theassembled [the assembled] spectators testified their loyalty by loud cheers. In fact, all along the route, notwithstanding the unfavourable state of the weather, the royal party was most enthusiastically greeted. Her Majesty and suite were received at the station by the Earl of Carlisle, and conducted at once to some seven or eight carriages waiting to convey them to the castle. At the most convenient points along the route the peasantry were collected to see their Queen, who ac- [acknowledged] knowledged [knowledge] very graciously their simple-hearted de- [demonstrations] monstrations [demonstrations] of loyalty. Arrived at length at Castle Howard, whither they were accompaned [accompanied] by a mounted escort, the royal party were received at the grand en- [entrance] trance by the Countess of Carlisle and other members of the family assembled on an occasion which will long be remembered by them with natural emotions of pride. The weather, which throughout Tuesday, was wet, stormy, and disagreeable, cleared up on Wednesday morning, and though there was a smart breeze blowing, her Majesty was enabled to see the beauties of Castle Howard in all the advantageous lights which sunshine and a clear sky impart. At the dinner covers were laid for thirty-five, and besides her Majesty and Prince Albert, there were pre- [present] sent most of the noble relatives of the Earl of Carlisle, the Royal suite, and many leading members of the aristocracy. Her Majesty and the Prince breakfasted at ten o'clock, and about eleven walked for some time in the private grounds and woods on the south side of the castle. Here several trees were planted by the Queen to com- [commemorate] memorate [memo rate] her visit to Castle Howard. At twelve o'clock the royal party visited the cricket- [cricket ground] ground and witnessed for some time the play of the Castle Howard Club. About two o'clock luncheon was provided in the castle for a party of seventy, and after it the royal visitors proceeded to inspect the fine herd of short- [short horned] horned cattle with which the park is stocked, and upon the merits of which Mr. Henderson, the Earl's land steward, feels a very natural and laudable pride. During the afternoon her Majesty and the Prince drove round the park, and admired the splendid pros- [prospects] pects [pets] and the stately avenues with which it abounds. The whole proceedings of the day were of the most quiet, unostentatious [ostentatious] character, and in complete keeping with the privacy which her Majesty wishes to preserve in visiting Castle Howard. Her Majesty was received wherever she went with every sign of loyal attach- [attachment] ment. [men] On Thursday morning, at ten o'clock her Majesty took leave of Castle Howard, and proceeded on her way northward. A very short stay at York sufficed, and the royal train was soon in full progress towards the Border. Outside the station at Newcastle and along the line of railway an immense concourse of spectators had assembled, and every corner was crowded with a highly respectable assemblage. As the hour approached for the arrival of the train the excitement rose to fever heat. At last it came in sight, and slowly glided in amidst deafening cheers and the waving of a perfect sea of handkerchiefs and hats. Her Majesty and the Prince repeatedly and most graciously acknow- [acne- acknowledged] ledged [ledge] the enthusiastic demonstrations of attach- [attachment] ment [men] which greeted them. Her Majesty remaincd [remained] a short time at the station and partook of refresh- [refreshments] ments; [rents] after which addresses were presented by Mr. Joseph Crawhall [Craw hall] (mayor of Newcastle), and Mr. Hawks (mayor of Gateshead). A gracious reply was returned by her Majesty, who then took her departure for Edinburgh, where she arrived about five in the evening. At Berwick she inaugurated the magnificent viaduct over the Tweed at the Royal Border Bridge. The reception was of a very enthusiastic character, and the scene altogether was very imposing. Addresses from the towns of Alnmouth [Plymouth] and Dunbar were pre- [presented] sented [scented] to her Majesty through Sir George Grey on her road, and on the arrival of the train here the whole of the population turned out to welcome her. The inhabitants of Edinburgh, and of Scotland gene- [generally] rally, are greatly delighted at finding Holyrood once more occupied as a royal residence. Caution.-Spurious Piano-Fortes.-The Dramatic and Musical Review points out a Fraud, which is practised in reference to Piano-Fortes. Besides a simulation of the names of the most esteemed Makers, a certain number of Manufacturers, with fictitious names, plant Pianos with confederates, who may be a cabinet er, stationer, a hatter, &c. who invites people, by reiterated advertisements, to buy an instrument by one of the best makers. 'This matchless bargain is to be sold sometimes for want of money, sometimes because its owner is about to quit the country, sometimes 'in consequeuce [consequence] of the sudden widowed condition of its r. ianos [Pianos] in endless succession are supplied from the same inexhaustible stock by owners about to quit the country. This identical fraud has for years continued to be practised in the heart of the Metropolis, by the same individuals, and it still alike deceives both persons from the country and the proverbially wary Londoners. Showy, but valzeless [valueless] instruments, are also sent from London by the dozen to the provincial towns, exhibited in rooms temporarily hired for the purpose, briskly advertised in the local papers as for sale, and, of course, bought cheap by the unwary, in the belief that they are the manufacture of the parties whose names are forged on them.-Broadwood's New Model Buhorda [Broad] Grand Piano everything hitherto made with two unisons, for brilliancy of tone elasticity of touch Its comparatively moderate price must also give it an additional claim to favourable notice.-Collard's New Cottage Piano-Forte This is decidedly the best chea [cheap] Piano-Forte manufactured by any house of long establish repute.

Collard and Collard by an article which appeared some time since in that highly and deservedly popular publication, Chambers' Journal, the object bein [being] to bring Piano-Fortes within the reach of that vast an growing body, the middle classes, who, through the opera- [operations] tions [tins] of the Hullah and Mainzer [Miners] systems, and the improved taste of the age, have of late years acquired the capacity of appreciating the social and intellectual advantages of a musical education.

Lloyd, a young man in the service of Messrs. Whitley and Roberts, woollen- [woollen drapers] drapers, at Eastgate-row, in Chester, on going into the parlour at the back of the shop discovered that there wes [West] an escape of gas in the place. He procured a light and found the taps were turned off; but being anxious to know from whence it escaped, he mounted a table and tried ; and in moving the light along the sliding pendant of the chandelier, the gas ignited and blew him off the table; he fell upon his face on the floor, and as soon as he could recover himself, ran into the cellar, and turned the gas off at the meter. The youth's escape was indeed a miraculous one as as it is most probable that, if he had not fallen in the position he did, he would have been killed; all the injury he received, we are glad to state, was in having the skin burnt off one side of his face, and part of his hair. To show the force of the explosion, we need not only state that the back and one of the side walls of the house are separated about two inches from the building the parlour windows shivered to atoms, two skylights, one on the first floor, and another on the second landing are completely blown out; and five doors below and up-stairs were broken by the explosion. We are glad to state that the parties are Chronicle, - BIRTH. On the 29th instant, Mrs. Richard Thomas, Commercial- [Commercial street] street, of a son. ere rw AAR [ARA] MARRIAGES.
