8 THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, AUGUST 31, 1850. -DISTRICT NEWS. ALMONDEURY. [ALMONDBURY] kim [kin] 4 some ago ad- [advent] A xp T low and neglect d state in which the school at Lower-houses was in, but are happy now to say that a decided improvement has taken piace. [place] When we alluded to the matter before, there were only some three or four scholars, now the numbers have increased to between thirty and forty, and we believe that by a little exertion that number might be still further inc 1 to seventy or eighty. As one means of creating a livelier interest in its behalf, the committee arrauged [arranged] a tea-party and concert, to welcome the lately appointed master, Mr. Drury, which took place on Monday afternoon and evening last, on which occasion the Rev. Mr. Jones, the vicar of Almondbury, presided. Miss Whitham, and some other vocalists from the Mechanics' Institution, contri- [country- contributed] buted [bute] greatly towards the harmony of the evening, and their very excellent singing was very frequently ap- [applauded] plauded [pleaded] by the audience. In the interval between the various pieces, interesting and instructive speeches were delivered by the worthy chairman, who, after dwelling on the necessity of supporting educational establish- [establishments] ments, [rents] eulogised the liberality of Thomas Brocke, [Brooke] Esq., of Colne Villa, one of the trustecs [trustees] of the school, who a' the last meeting gave a further donation of 5 for its s1pport, [support] and has since that period had the school and masters' apartments cleaned out, whitewashed, and coloured at his own expense. We necd [need] hardly say that the announcement was hailed with enthusiastic applause, and we trust the noble exable [enable] set by Mr. Brooke will induce others to come forward and contribute for the furtherance of the same laudable object. Mr. Hathorn, [Thorn] who was unavoidably absent on important business, sent a note to the vicar, expressing regret that he could not atsend. [attend] After the National Anthem was sung by the whole audience, three hearty cheers were given for the Vicar, and the party separated at ten o'clock. THE CoRNER Corner] GROUP Nursance.-The [Nuisance.-The] respectable inhabitants and visitors of Almoudbury, [Almondbury] like those of most other country villages, have had to endure con- [considerable] siderable [considerable] annoyance from the very objectionable practice of ten or twelve ill-behaved persons congregating at the corners of busy thoroughfares-and not only compelling the passengers to move off the foot-road, but at the game time indulging in criticisms neither delicate nor polite. This is an evil which cannot b2 too strongly reprimanded, and though it may not come within the limits of the law, it is one which ought to be held in such disapprobation as to render its indulgence a mark of disgrace. Anxious to obtain the concurrence of the bench for suppresseng [surprising] these village nuisances, M r. David Sugden, of Almondbury, appeared at the Guild- [Guildhall] hall, last Tucsday, [Tuesday] as complaiuaut [complaint] against Joseph Crow- [Crowther] ther [the] and Edward Midgley, for obstructing the foot-path. The complainant for some weeks past had been exceed- [exceedingly] ingly [ingle] anaoyed [enjoyed] by groups of ill-bchaved [ill-behaved] young men con- [congregating] gregating [creating] in front of his window; and on the 18th, [the] the defendants being there, he took out a summons against them. Mr. J. I. Freeman defended. There was cer- [er- certainly] tainly [mainly] no case against the defendants, who, for anything that appeared to the contrary, were respectable, well- [well conducted] conducted young men. The bench, in discharging the case, expressed their entire disapproval of the practice, and determination to suppress it. SHEPLEY. OPENING OF THE NEW ScHOOL-ROOM [School-ROOM] CONNECTED WITH THE INDEPENDENT CHaPEL.-QOn [Chapel.-On] Lord's-day, the 25th instant, two sermons were preached at the Independent Chapel, Shelley, when collections were made towards the expense incurred in raising the above edifice. The sermon in the afternoon was preached by Mr. J. France, of Shefficld [Sheffield] and that in the cvening [evening] by the Rev. J. Macfarlane, [MacFarlane] of Holinfirth. [Holmfirth] The ccilections [collections] amounted to nearly three pounds. On Monday evening, the 26th, [the] a public tea meeting was held in the new school-room (which is thirty-six feet long by twenty-four fect [fact] wide, and is intended for a twofold purpose, the keeping of a day school and the instruction of the children of the Sunday school); upwards of 150 took tea on the occasion. When the repast was concluded a public meeting was held in the room, which is Eghted [Sighted] with naptha; [path] and after singing the Rev. G. B. Scott, of Brotherton, was called to the chair, who, having opened the meeting with a few pointed observations, stated that several friends would address them, and he might again at a subsequent part of the meeting engage their atten- [attend- attention] tion. [ion] Solemn, interesting, and eloquent addresses were afterwards delivered to the numerous assembly (for by this time the room was much crowded), by the Rev. J. R. Smith, Clayton West; Rev. W. Catton, Flockton ; Mr. J. France, of Sheffield; Mr. Joseph Townend, and the Chairman. Votes of thanks having been moved to the ladies who had been engaged in preparing the tea, and presiding on the occasion; to Revds. [Revs] J. R. Smith, and William Cotton, to Mr. France, and the Chairman, for their excellent and able addresses, and presiding over the meeting, the proceedings were brought toa [to] close about half-past nine o'clock. An efficient choir enlivened the meeting by several appropriate tunes, which they sung to the hymns read by the chairman. CuarcE [Scarce] or AssavLt.-A [Assault.-A] very sanctimonious lady, having a strong Mormonitixh [Moments] twang, afforded a pleasing divertisement [advertisements] to the visitants of the Huddersfield Guild- [Guildhall] hall, on Tuesday last, by the manner in which she laid a charge against James Hopkins and his son John. The complainant's name was Hannah Hardy; her vocation did not transpire, though we presume her life will be devoted to the working of miracles and similar good offices under the Latter Day Saints It appears that on the 18th instant her son had becn [been] gathering bulrushes, and meeting with Jolin [Join] Hopkins, had began to cry out lustily before he was hurt. His cries speedily brought to his assistance his mother, who, in the warmth of her maternal solicitude, seized hold of a stone (whese [these] dimen- [Diemen- dimensions] sions [Sons] would be something like six inches inches by four), aud [and] was threatening annihilation to the younger Hop- [Hopkins] kins, [ins] when the father unexpectedly came to his rescue. The company was speediiy [speedily] increased by the com- [complainant] plainant's [plain ant's] husband andaunt. [abundant] Some scuffling took place, in which Mrs. Hardy did not mect [met] with such treatment as she considered hersclf [herself] entitled to. A summons was the result. John Hopkins was discherged, [discharged] and James ordered to pay expenses. KIRKBURTON. Drivine [Divine] witnout [without] Rers.- [Rees.- Rees] Thomas Lodge was charged before the Huddersfield magistrates, last Saturday, by the road inspector, Sykes, with driving his horse with- [without] out reins, at Denby Grange, on the 14th inst. Ordered to pay expenses.-A second charge was preferred against Ben. Smith, for a similar offence on the Queen's highway at Kirkburton, on the 12th instant. Fined 1s. and Damacine [Damaging] a DwetiincHouse.-aA [Winches.-aA] charge was pre- [preferred] ferred [erred] against James Berry, at the Guildhall, Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field, on Saturday last, for having committed certain damage upon a dwellinghouse, [dwelling house] the property of Mr. Henry Lockwood, to the amount of 7s. 6d. The charge was denied. Witnesses were called by the complainant. The offence was proved to have been committed on the 20th, [the] when the defendant, whilst drank, had gone to the house, which is yet wifinished, [finished] and taking a stonc [stone] off one of the chimney pieces, had thrown it to the ground breaking it all to atoms. Ordered to pay the amount, and, in default, committed to Wakefield for fourteen days. CLAYTON WEST. COTTAGERS HORTICULTURAL EXHIBITION. Cn Saturday last, the third annuel [annual] exhibition of the Cottagers' Horticultural Society, connected with Scissett, Denby-dale, Skelmanthorpe, and Clayton-West, 'was held in a large Marqueé [Marquee] erected on a piece of ground belonging to Mr. Scholeticld, [Scholefield] innkeeper, Scisseté, [Society] kindly lent for the occasion. The Marqueé [Marquee] was tastefully decorated with a profusion of evergreens, and fiowers, [flowers] which evinced the fact that much labour had been spent on this department. On the table were fruits and vegetables of almost every description, grown by cot- [cottages] tegers, [tigers] which did credit to the industry and perseverance of the competitors for the prizes to be awarded. Nor must we omit to notice the several pretty devices, and beautiful flowers, which adorned the middle row of tables, and to which prizes were given, to one lot an extra prize of three shillings was given. Four gentle- [gentlemen] meu [me] were selected, to whose judgment the decision in reference to the prizes was referred; and on an examina- [examine- examination] tion [ion] of the fruits and vegetables, they awarded the prizes, which appeared to give general satisfaction. Soon after five o'clock, p.m., on entering the Marqueé, [Marquee] we observed present, the Rev. Mr. Donald, Scissett, Rev. Mr. Smith, Clayton-West, the Rev. J. Johnson, Cumber- [Cumberworth] worth, Wm. Walker, Esq., Spring Grove, Joseph Norton, Esq., George Henry Norton, Esq., Mr. G. D. Causby, [Causeway] and a large numle [number of fashionably dressed ladies, The Rev. W. DoNALD [Donald] was requested to preside over the meeting, but having an official engagement, was prevented, and W. WaLKER, [Walker] Esq., was moved to the chair. He opened the business of the evening, by some kind and pertinent observations to the cottagers present, stimulating them to renewed exertion; and then in- [introduced] troduced [produced] the Rev. J. Jounson, [Johnson] who was announced by placard to deliver a lecture on vegetables, fruits, and flowers. He said his time would not permit him to prepare a lecture on the subject announced, but he attended cheerfully to offer them some few words of encourage- [encouragement] ment, [men] in reference to their praiseworthy exertions in rearing and presenting for the decision of the gentlemen the vegetables, and fruits, and flowers, which then graced the tables, and which did them great credit. He referred to the unsuccessful competitors, and hoped. they would not be discouraged, but try again another year. His observations and advice were such as, if followed out by the cottagers, might be turned to prac- [pray- practical] tical [critical] advantage. The Chairman then called on The Rev. Mr. Smrrn [Smyrna] to address the assembly, who remarked, he came to observe the fruits of the per- [persevering] severing industry of the cottagers; and to be a hearer; yet he had no objection to say a word or two of encouragement, which he did by urging them to persevere in this department of labour, but oe mua [ma] be without the wine blessing crowning ir exertions. H n directed the attention of the manufacturers and friends present to the fact that the season was rapidly approach- [approaching] ing when the evening hours, after labour, not be t in cultivating the garden, and pressed home upon influential part of the assembly, the necessity and importance of providing a room, which should be sup- [supplied] plied with suitable periodicals and standard works, that the instructing, and ennobling, and dignifying the im [in] mortal mind should not be lost sight of. He reminded the cottagers they were his neighbours, and he should feel at all times great pleasure in promoting their tem- [te- temporal] poral [moral] and spiritual welfare. The thanks of the meeting were then proposed to the treasurer, secretary, and committee; to Joseph Norton, Esq., for the use of the marqueé; [marquee] to Mr. Scholefield, for the loan of the ground; to the ladies, &e.; and to chairman, which he acknowledged in an appropriate specch, [speech] and the meeting was dissolved, with the an- [announcement] nouncenent [announcement] that the marqueé [marquee] would remain open till half-past seven o'cloc' [o'clock] An officient [efficient] brass band contributed to the pleasure of the friends and working-classes (who congregated in large numbers to witness the effects of garden-husbandry and persevering labour), by playing some beautiful airs and the national anthem. This day (Saturday) the annual exhibition of the fruits and vegetables, grown by the cottagers connected with the Spring Grove Factory, Clayton West, will take place in the Wesleyan School-room. After the prizes are awarded a public mecting [meeting] will be held, and addresses will be delivered. We purpose giving an account of the same next week. Srauons.-A [Seasons.-A] Sabbath or two since (as announced in our paper) the Rev. B. Beddow, [Bed] of Barnsley, preached two excellent sermons in the Independent Chapel, Clayton West, on behalf of the Sabbath School, to ex- [excellent] cellent [excellent] congregations, when the collections amounted to A4 5s. HALIFAX. THe [The] CaLDER [Calder] VALE AGRICULTURAL Society.-The annual show of horses, cattle, &c., took place at Halifax on Wednesday last, in the Piece-hall. The attendance was about as usual; but the entries were not numerous, and the exhibition of stock much inferior to the show young bulls which were much admired, and Aked, Esq., of Kershaw-house, had one, only young, highly commended. Members and friends, to the number of fifty, dined together at the Talbot Inn. Our agricul- [Agricola- agricultural] tural [trial] friends, and those interested in the breeding of cattle, ought not to allow a society like this to wane, but seek its advancement to the utmost of their ability. Ha irax [ira] WaTERWORKS.- [Waterworks.- Waterworks] We understand the engineer who contracted to repair the new reservoir and make it hold water, has found the sum fixed 300) [W] to be quite inadequate, and has consequently applied for more. Sxkrrcoat [Extract] HorTICULTURAL [Horticultural] AND FLoRAL [Floral] Socrety.-The [Society.-The] annual exhibition of this thriving society took place yes- [yesterday] terday [yesterday] (Friday), at King-cross, in a large marquee (66 yard by 12) specially erected for the occasion. Much spirit has characterized the annual meetings of this society, and the attendance has been very fashionable and numerous. We hear that it is purposed to hold the next annual show in the Halifax Piece-hall, at which arrangement our good friends at King-cross may not be so well satisfied. MARSDEN. QuaRREL [Quarrel] ABOUT DisPpuTED [Dispute] Property.-On Saturday last, before Joseph Brook and George Armitage, Esqrs., [Esquires] at Huddersfield, Ben. Oldroyd appeared as complainant against Wm. Oldroyd on a charge of assault. Mr. Drans- [Drains- Dransfield] field defended. From the evidence given, itappeared [it appeared] that tue property of the respective parties joins each other, and this assault had arisen out of an alleged encroach- [encroachment] ment [men] by tke [the] defendant on the plaintiff's rights. A wall had been rebuilt by defendant once or twice, and on each occasion more ground was enclosed than could ligitimately [legitimate] be claimed. Plaintiff in consequence took a witness with him on the 15th instsnt, [instant] and endeavoured to obtain some explanation of the proceedings; the result was, that defendant seized him by the throat and knocked him down. The offence was acknowledged, but attempted to be justified on the plea that it was committed in the defence of defendant's property, an1 [an] therefore quite in accordance with the act of parliament. The bench decided that there was a wide difference between an assault committed in the act of defending property, and one arising out of a dispute prior or sub- [subsequent] sequent to the act itself, and therefore could not acqui- [ac- acquiesce] esce [ese] in the defence offered, but should only make an order for a fine of 6d. with expenses. MELTHAM. CHARGE UNDER THE GAME-LAws.-On [GAME-Laws.-On] Tuesday last, before Joseph Armitage and Joseph Brook, Esqs., [Esq] at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, Thomas Sykes, gamekeeper to Join and Joshua Farrar, Esqs., [Esq] charged Daniel Smith, with being on the 17th inst., in the Messrs. Frivai's [Friday's] rabbit preserves, for an illegal purpose. Sykes had observed tie defendant and other two men going towards these preserves about eight o'clock at night, and shortly afterwards followed them. On reaching the ground they saw two persons within the enclosure, and one without. After watching some time at a dis- [distance] tauce [Sauce] of ninety yards, the three men were disturbed and left the place. Sykes and his companion then came on the road, and meeting Smith took him into custody. Nothing was found on him. The prosecutor failed to prove the charge, and the case was dismissed. LOCKWOOD. BEER-HOUSE Conviction.-Mr. Superintendent Hea- [He- Heaton] ton, in the pursuit of his vocation, on Sunday the 11th instant, called, about twenty minutes to four in the afternocn, [afternoon] at the Shoulder of Mutton, and to his sur- [Sir- surprise] prise was politely requested to walk up stairs; on doing so he found a great number of Odd-fellows cele- [cell- celebrating] brating [rating] the interment of a brother, by drinking to his memory in a few draughts of ale. The unfortunate landlady, Mrs. Nancy Dyson, was informed that her ap- [appearance] pearance [appearance] would be requisite before the Huddersfield magistrates, to show cause why and wherefore she should not suffer the penalty of her misdeeds. The charge was examined on Tuesday last, and as the offence had been committed in perfect ignorance of its impro- [Emperor- impropriety] priety, [pretty] and Mrs. Dyson bearing an excellent character, the summonses was withdrawn on payment of ex- [expenses] pences. [pence] Cattion [Caution] To Boys TRAVELLING BY RaILway.-Two [Railway.-Two] youths, about 13 or 14 years of age, named William Horsfall and Joseph Pearson, were charged before the Huddersfield magistrates, last Tuesday, with unlawfully riding in a third-class carriage, on the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway, between Huddersfield and Lock- [Lockwood] wood, they not having paid their fares. The Lockwood station-master stated that on Sunday night last they were very busy, and the two boys were observed by a Mr. Hamilton to leave the station in a suspicious man- [manner] ner, [ne] and were, therefore, captured and brought back. On being examined, two old tickets bearing date July 7th and 21st were found upon them. In reply to the bench the lads explained that they were quite ignorant of railway travelling, and had used those tickets, which had been given to them on the Sunday night by another lad, on the Huddersfield station, called William Jagger, under the impression that they were right ones. The boy was called and acknowledged that he had given the defendants the tickets, but at the same time cautioned them that they would not do. It appears that the non-delivery of tickets at Lockwood is an evil of some extent, and the bench expressed their sense of its illegality by inflicting the penalty of 10s. each and ex- [expenses] penses. [senses] Cuarce [Scarce] oF AssauLt.-On [Assault.-On] Tuesday last, at the Guild- [Guildhall] hall, Huddersfield, Benjamin Brook was summoned by Nathau [Nathan] Bradley to answer a charge of assault. About eight o'clock in the evening of Monday the 19th, [the] Brad- [Bradley] ley, in company with another person, went into Mrs. Wilson's, Lockwood, and had a pint of beer. During the time they were sitting there, the defendant and others who were present, entered into a conversation about foot racing, which became rather warm, but gra- [ga- gradually] dually merged into one on the advantages of public- [public house] house song singing. Complainant was asked to add to the harmony of the company, but declined was pressed, with no better result; and the company having evidently had more beer than was compatible with a just appreciation of quietude and good manners, began to pull each other somewhat roughly about. The result of this freedom was that Bradley thought himself assaulted by Brook, and took out a summons against him. The case was very properly discharged. If peo- [pro- people] ple [le] will take part in taproom squables, [squabbles] they must suffer the consequences. LONGWOOD. Non-PAYMENT OF WacEs.-On [Wales.-On] Saturday last, at the Guildhall, Huddersfield, before the sitting magistrates, a charge was preferred by William Heptonstall against Joseph Schofield, Cliff End, for non-payment of wages. In May last the complainant worked for defendant at daily labour for six days, at the rate of 2s. 9d. per day. The money was always promised to be paid up till the previous Saturday, when Schofield gave complainant a positive refusal, This summons had been brought in consequence, and not appearing, the defendant was ordered to pay the amount claimed. CUMBERWORTH. ALLEGED BurcLtary.-On [Burglary.-On] Thursday last, at Hudders- [Udders- Huddersfield] field, before J. and G. Armitage, Esqrs., [Esquires] the wife of Mr. John Firth, of Kelmanthorpe, [Skelmanthorpe] appeared to apply for a search warrant to examine the house of John Healey. The complainant for some time has been attending on her sick father, and her own house in consequence was locked up during the absence of the husband. Nothing was missing until the 26th inst., when she found that one pair of blankets, a pitcher, and long-brush had been stolen. Suspicion resting on Healey, a search warrant was granted, and Healey held over, in his own bail, to appear this day (Saturday). SCAMMONDEN. ASSAULTING THE PoLice.-Joseph [Police.-Joseph] Haigh was brought up at the Guildhall, last Thursday, in the custody of Wadsworth, the Scammonden constable, and charged before Joseph and George Armitage, Esgrs., [Egress] with having, on the night of the 27th, [the] assaulted another con- [constable] stable named William Hey, who appeared to prosecute. On the Tuesday night, about twelve o'clock, he was going round, in company with Robert Barrett, to see that the beer-houses were closed, when he met the prisoner, who was drunk, and who, without provocation, began to poise and ill-use him. Defendant then got away, taking Hey's hat with him, but on the latter going home he found the prisoner and another man, named Thomas j Berry, in his yard, who treated him and his companion of last year. Henry Ambler, Esq., had two or three- [three] Barrett very roughly, throwing the unfortunate assistant over the wall -'Thomas Berry was then ordered to stand up to answer the charge of Robert Barrett for the offence stated. The prisoners both acknowledged the offence, but with the proverbial love of the Scammonden malefactors and their victims, they asked permission to be allowed to settle it amongst themselves. Mr. Super- [Superintendent] intendent [intended] Heaton advised the bench not to accede, as everything was being compromised in that neighbour- [neighbourhood] hood, thus preventing the due punishment of offenders. The bench then fined them 2s, 6d. each, with expenses. SLAITHWAITE. SLAITHWAITE v. MELTHAM, &C.-Some time ago, the Mitham [Whitham] club sent a challenge to the Slaithwaite club, which was not then accepted, on account that the latter had only been formed so late as the month of May last. In course of last week the challenge was, however, accepted, and the match came off on Saturday, in a field near to the Bath Hotel. This being the first game that has taken place in the neighbourhood, crowds of people were attracted to witness the sport, which was carried on by both parties with the greatest vigour. When the game had terminated, it was announced that Slaithwaite had won by 29 runs. LEEDS ANNUAL PIG AND POULTRY EXHIBITION. Last Wednesday, the 4th annual show of the Leeds Association for Improving the Breeds of Pigs and Poultry, was held in the yard of the Coloured Cloth- [Cloth] hall. The day was propitious for the occasion, but in our judgment the attendance though good was small in comparison with that at the Huddersfield show last week. A band of music enlivened the proceedings during the day. The entries in the different classes in pigs were numerous, and the stock of excellent quality. The entries in poultry were not so numerous in prc- [pr- proportion] portion-the [the] total in the different classes being only 115, whilst at Huddersfield no less than 189 lots were exhibited. When, too, it is borne in mind, that Hud- [HUD- Huddersfield] dersfield [Huddersfield] has only completed its second exhibition, whilst Leeds has just celebrated its fourth, the contrast is greatly in favour of our town. To do Leeds justice, however, we must here again remark that the poultry though comparatively limited in quantity, was of a good and interesting quality some lots in our opinion being much superior to any of the same classes shown at Huddersfield, All the birds exhibited in competition for the silver medal, were, as may be expected, of a superb description ;-those especially to which this unique and valuable prize was awarded of the Cochin China breed were truly magnificent, and the admiration of every body. This prize was borne off by Edward Bond, Esq., of Middleton Lodge, who it will be re- [remembered] membered was one of the judges of our own show. He also exhibited some splendid poultry of other breeds and as will be seen from the subjoined list took several other prizes in the ordi [ord] classes. The judges of the show were, for the pigs-Mr. Henlock, [Wenlock] Great Ouseburn; Mr. Roper, Keighley Mr. Thackray, Shadwell Grange. For the poultry-Mr. Henry Clapham, Keighley Mr. Kenny, Halifax.

MEETING OF THE PEACE CONGRESS AT FRANKFORT. On Thursday morning last, at ten o'clock, the proceed- [proceedings] ings of the third general Peace Congress were opened. in St. Paul's church, the building made memorable by the recent meetings of the Frankfort parliament. It is a handsome circular building, with a gallery supported by marble columns. In and under this gallery a large number of ladies were assembled. The decorations of the place were put up for the German parliament. Behind the chair is a large shield, blazoned with the German eagle, whilst above the crimson drapery on which this heraldic formation rests are three flags, each black, crimson, and gold, the staves sur- [Sir- surrounded] rounded by triumphal wreaths. The aspect of the interior of St. Paul's church attracted, however, anuch [inch] less attention than did one of its visitors, when it was whispered round the place that General Haynau [Hannah] was present. He sat for some time near one of the side doors, listening apparently with much attention, but left before the termination of the proceedings. The seats lately occupied by the members of the Frankfort parliament were filled by a numerous company, made up of Germans, Englishmen, Americans, French- [Frenchmen] men, and Belgians. The seat put up for the Archduke John, and subsequently occupied by M. Gagern, [Garner] was for a while filled by the president (for the year) of this Peace Congress, Herr Jaup, [CAP] late minister of Hesse Darmstadt. [Distant] There were about 550 English present, out of a total audience of 2,000. Among the delegates to the meeting were R. Cobden, Esq., M.P., Charles Hindley, Esq., M.P., J. B. Smith, Esy., [Es] M.P., Lawrence Heyworth, Esq., M.P., Dr. Lee. F.R.S. (of Hartwell); Revs. J. Burnett, E. Miall, [Mill] and H. Richard; Elihu [Eli] Burritt, [Barrett] Joseph Sturge, [Stage] J. Wilson (of Leeds), Dr. Dick, and others, from England. The list of American deputies included -Massachusetts-Rev. Mark Trafton; [Grafton] Boston-Rev. Dr. Hitchcock, Rev. Mr. Sargent, John Tappon, [Tapping] Esq.; Maine-Rev. David Thurs- [Thurston] ton; Rhode Island-Rev. Dr. Hall; New Hampshire- [Hampshire] Hon. John Prentiss; Connecticut-Rev. G. W.

[fails] From Bru [BrE BrE] sels [less] -M. Visschers, [Whiskers] M. Depetiaux, [Depurative] inspector-general f prisons in Belgium. . Every speech was delivered in the native language of the speaker, but where an oration was considered unu- [in- unusually] sually [sally] important, it was given in two other languages, by competent interpreters. The first proceeding ef the meeting was the election of a president and vice-presi- [vice-press- president] dent; the former was Dr. Jaup, [CAP] lately minister of Hesse t. The President commenced by saying that he accepted, with thankfulness, the invitation given to him to preside over such an important assembly. In doing so he would, in the name of his countrymen, welcome them all to attend the first peace congress held on the soil of Germany. (Applause.) Hitherto Germany had not taken a very active part in this great movement, but the presence of that large assembly proved that it was be- [beginning] ginning to feel a deep interest in the question. (Ap- [Applause] plause.) [clause] He then detailed shortly the history of this movement from its first origin in England and America, and alluded to the congresses which had been held in Brussels and Paris, and to the present gathering in the ancient city of Frankfort. Many men, continued he, regarded the great matter to which their attention was about to be drawn as Utopian, but all wise measures for the progress of the people of the world had been equally received with distrust. (Applause.) In order to ac- [accomplish] complish [accomplish] the ends which they had in view, public opinion must be roused and made to act upon the governments and the legislatures of the various coun- [con- countries] tries in the world, and publie [public] opinion (said he, in con- [conclusion] clusion), [conclusion] as the great moving power, must ultimately prevail. He then read the regulations by which it was proposed that the congress should be governed; and these having been put to the meeting and agreed to, letters were handed in from persons favourable to the objects of the congress, but wnable [enable] to attend in person. One was read from M. Victor Hugo, the president of the congress last year in Paris. The first resolution to be submitted was then read in German and English, as follows -- The congress of the friends of universal peace, assembled at Frankfort-on- [other] the-Maine, [Maine] the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th August, 1850, acknowledges that 'recourse to arms being condemned alike by religion, morality, reason, and humanity, it is the duty of all men to adopt measures calculated to abolish and the congress recommends all its members to labour in their respective countries, by means of a better education of youth, by the pulpit, the methods, to eradicate these hereditary hatreds, and generally the cause of disastrous wars. The resolution was spoken to by the Rev. J. Burnett, M. Coquerel, [Cockerel] jun., M. Bonnet, minister of the French Protestant Chureh [Church] at Frankfort; M. de Cormenin, [Communion] the Rev. Henry Garnett, of New York, a man of colour, and M. Emile de Girardin. [Guardian] The resolution was then put and carried, and the congress adjourned for refreshment. On their re-assembling, the President introduced to the notice of the meeting the second resolution - This congress is of opinion that one of the most effectual means of preserving peace would be for govern- [governments] ments [rents] to refer to arbitration all those differences between them which cannot be otherwise amicably settled. This resolution was spoken to by M. Visschers, [Whiskers] Herr Beck, Professor Cleveland, and Mr. Cobden, MP. The second resolution was then put to the mecting, [meeting] and carried by acclamation; after which the meeting adjourned tiil [till] next morning, at ten o'clock. The second day's sitting commenced at ten e clock. Mr. Charles Hindley, M.P.,. proposed the third resolu- [resolute- resolution] tion [ion] That the standing armaments with which the governments of Europe menace one another impose in- [intolerable] tolerable burdens and inflict grievous moral and social evils upon their respective communities this congress cannot therefore call the attention of go- [government] vernment [Government] to the necessity of entering upon a system of international disarmament, without prejudice to such measures as may be considered necessary for the maintenance of the sceurity [security] of the citizens and the internal tranquility [tranquillity] of each state, which was supported by M. Emile de Girardin, [Guardian] Dr. Hitchcock, the Rev. E. B. Hall, and Mr. Cobden, M.P. The resolution was then put to the congress, and the resolution unanimously adopted. The next proposition was announced fer discussion as follows This congress reite1ates [reiterates] its streng [strong] disappro- [disappear- disapprobation] bation [nation] of all foreign loans, negociated [negotiated] for the purpose furnishing to ome [one] people the means of slaughtering F another. M. Drucker [Druce] and M. Zackaria [Zachariah] spoke in its support, and the proposition was adopted, and the congress ad- [adjourned] journed. [joined] The third day's sitting was opened this morning at ten o'clock, when several new members were announced, among whom vas [as] Professor Liebig, [Lie big] of Giessen, [Essen] whose name was received with a round of applause. A letter was received. from Professor Charkes [Charles] Biedermann, [Boatman] of Leipsig, [Lips] regretting that the present state of Schleswig- [Schedules- SchleswigHolstein] Holstein would not permit him to attend the sitting. communicated, containing a general recognition of the seeking to. realise. The fourth proposition of the pro approbation of all foreign loana, [loans] negotiated for the par- [purpose] pose of furnishing to one people the means of slaughter- [slaughtering] ing apother, [other, was accepted unanimously. The Rev. Mr. Copway, [Copy] a native North American Indian, ef the Chippaway [Chippewa] tribe moved the fifth resolution, This congress, acknowledging the principle of non-interven- [non-intervention- intervention] tion, [ion] recognises it to be the sole right of every state to regulate its own affairs. The motion was spoken to by Dr. Weil, [Well] of Frankfort, Dr. Bodenstedt, [Bedsteads] of Berlin, and Dr. Jaup, [CAP] the president, and the resolution was unanimously adopted. Mr. E. Miatl, [Metal] Mr. Elihu [Eli] Burritt, [Barrett] and Wm. Chipper, of New York, afterwards addressed the assem- [assume- assembly] bly. [by] The resolutions which had been submitted to the meeting were shortly after carried, together with an additional one against duelling. On the latter, M. Cormenin [Communion] and M. Girardin [Guardian] spoke. A vote of thanks to the municipal authorities of Frankfort followed, in hon- [honour] our of whom Mr. Cobden led an English Hip, hip, hurrah, to the intense astonishment of the Germans. It was then resolved that the proceedings should be printed and eirculated [circulated] at a small charge and a vote of thanks to Dr. Jaup [CAP] having been passed, the proceedings were declared at an end. A DREADFUL CaSE [Case] OF FRATRICIDE.-GLOUCESTER, TUES- [TUESDAY] DAY.-Last [Last] Sunday night two young men named William from Stroud, in this county, their step-father, a yo Brown's wife and child. accompanied by their mother, woman named Gibbins, and W, ey had got to within four miles as to which of them should drive. A struggle took place, in the course of which the horse, being pulled about, fell, and both brothers jumped out of the vehicle. William Brown drew a knife, for the purpose, as he says, of cutting the reins to liberate the horse, when a scuffle took place between the brothers and both fell to the ground, They got up again, and William Brown immediately rushed up to his brotner [brother] with his knife in his hand and inflicted on him three mortal stabs. Nathaniel was conveyed to a toll house near, and medical aid procured. There were no hopes of the unfortunate man's recovery, and it was deemed advisable to send for a county istrate [estate] to take the depo- [depot- depositions] sitions [sit ions] of the dying man. In the course of tain Pearson proceeded to the spot, and the brother, Wil liam, having been apprehended, was also taken to the dying man's bedside, when Nathaniel Brown's evidence was taken on oath. His dying declaration corroborates the above account of the disastrous affair. The unfortunate suf- [su- sufferer] ferer [free] was alive in the afternoon, but his dissolution was honrly [Henry] expected. His principal wound is one in the ab- platform, and the press, as well as by other practical political and commercial prejudices, which have beer so and Nathaniel Brown were returning in a light spring cart of of this city when a dispute arose between the two brothers be THE SUBMARENE [SUBMARINE] TELEGRAPH BETWEEN DOVER AND CALAIS. The interesting experiment of sinking submarinely [submarine] with success the electric telegraph between Dover and Calais, and which is destined to form the future key for instant communication with the European continent, was practically commenced on Wednesday morning at half-past ten o'clock, at which hour the Goliah [Goliath] steam- [steamship] ship, provisioned for the day, and with a crew of some thirty men, was brought under weigh within the har- [harbour] bour. [our] There were on board Dr. Reid, Mr. J. C. Wollas- [Wills- Wollaston] ton, C.E.; Mr. Crampton, C.E. Mr. J. Edwards, Capt. Beer, and several scientific gentlemen, with many per- [persons] sons on the pier to see the convoy start. The Goliah [Goliath] rode out to the government pier with her telegraphic tackle and apparatus on board under a calm sea and sky and a favourmg [favour mg] wind. The connection between the thirty miles of telegraphic wire, one-tenth of an inch in diameter, and encased in a covering of gutta percha, the thickness of a little finger, and which was coiled round a large cylinder or drum amidship fifteen feet by seven, was then made good to three hundred yards of the 'same wire enclosed in a leaden tube on shore, to pre- [prevent] vent it being bruised by the shingle on the beach, and to enable the experimenters, as they proceeded out to sea, to send communications on shore. The vessel being fully under weigh steamed out at the rate of three or four miles an hour into the open sea in a direct track for Cape Grinez, [Grains] twenty-one milesacross [miles across] the channel, the nearest landmark to the English coast, and lying mid- [midway] way between Calais and Boulogne. The wire weighed five tons, and the cylinder two. The vessel was pre- [preceded] ceded by Captain Bullock, R.N., of her Majesty's steam- [steamship] ship Widgeon, who accompanied the experimenters as a pilot, and who had caused the track of the navigation to be taken to be marked out by a succession of buoys, surmounted with flags, on the whole route between the English and French coasts. The operation of paying out the thirty miles of wire commenced on a signal to the sailors to Go-a-head with the wheel, and pay out the wire, which was continuously streamed out over a roller at the stern of the vessel, the men at cvery [very] six- [sixteenth] teenth [teeth] of a mile being busily engaged in rivetting [reverting] on to the wire square leaden clamps or weights of from 14 b. to 241b., [b] and which had the effect of sinking the wire in the bottom of the sea, which on the English coast com- [commences] mences [fences] at a depth of thirty feet, and goes on varying from that to 100 to 180 feet, which latter, or thirty fathoms, is anywhere the greatest depth. The whole of the casting out and sinking was accomplished with great precision and success, owing to the favourable state of the day. Various interesting salutations were kept up hourly during the progress of submerging the wire between the gentlemen on board and Messrs. G. and W. Brett, the original promoters of the enterprise. The only conjec- [conjecture- conjectured] tured [cured] difficulty on the route was at a point in mid-chan- [channel] nel [ne] called the Ridge, between which and another ine- [in- inequality] quality, called the Varne, [Vane] both well known and dreaded by navigators, there is a deep sub-marine valley, sur- [Sir- surrounded] rounded by shifting sands, the one being 17 miles in length and the other 12, and in their vortex, not unlike the voracious one of the Goodwin Sands, ships encounter danger, lose their anchors, and drift, and trolling nets of fishermen are frequently lost. Over this, however, the wire was successfully submerged below the reach, it is believed, of either ships' anchors, sea animals, or fishing nets. The remainder of the route, though rougher on approaching the coast of France, was accomplished cleverly but slowly; but, as the expedition had not reached its destination to enable our correspondent to announce the gratifying fact under the bottom of the sea by telepraph, [Telegraph] and thence by the last express from Dover at eight o'clock, he will be compelled to postpone it until such time thereafter as the Goliah [Goliath] shall have reached Cape Grinez.

Care Grivgz, [Grieve] Coast oF FRANCE, Half-past 8 p.m. The Goliah [Goliath] has just arrived im [in] safety, and the com- [complete] plete [plate] connexion of the underwater wire with that left at Dover this morning is being run up the face of the for the first time.

Some months since Miss Fernandes, whose brother is lessee of the Wake- [Wakefield] field Soke Mills, was receiving the addresses of a respectable merchant of the town, but the match was rather abruptly broken off, and Miss Fernandez went to a distance to reside for a time. Slanderous reports speedily followed upon the , announeement [announcement] of the match being broken off, and amongst others who repeated these rumours was Mr. Horner. Upon being called upon for his authority, he could not, or would give it. Consequently a suit was instituted against him in the Richmond Ecelesiastical [Ecclesiastical] Court, and the judg- [judge- judgment] was, that he sheuld, [should] on Sunday, August 25th, [the] per- [perform] 'form penance in the vestry of Wakefield parish church, and there read a recantation of the slander, in terms to be ; dictated by Miss Fermandez's [Fernandez's] proctor. A very large concourse of persons assembledround [assembled round] Mr. Horner's residence on Sunday morning, and, forming a procession, walled to the church, 'with Mr. Horner at their head. At the door-of the church one of Mr. Horner's sons begged the sympathisers, whose cheering, clapping of hands, and waving of hats, had been unbounded, to retire, out of respect to the day. Notwith- [Not with- Notwithstanding] 'standing that rain was falling heavily, thousands who had fassembled [assembled] remained opposite the church until after the penanee [penance] had been gone throagh [through] as required by the court, -after which they they re-formed in procession, and re- [returned] turned to Mr. Horner's residence. Here a paper was read 'from a window adjoining his house, detailing the facts, after which many cheers were given, and at the earnest request of Mr. Horner's family the crowd dispersed... There was a large body of police in attendance to keep orde [order] but no disturbance took placa. [place] P ia HOLYHEAD HARBOUR.-The government have completed the purchase of al the ground and property requisite for the construction of the new harbour here, and the whole of the works will be pushed forward with the utmost expedi- [expert- expedition] tion, [ion] nearly 1,500- [1,W- men] men being constantly engazed [engaged] in the various operations. The engineers are proceeding rapidly with the extensions of the sea-wall at the northern break- [breakwater] water, and are also progressing with the erection of the stages. Many thousands of cubic feet of stone are now ready for the commencement and erection of the immense sea-wall; and fresh supplies are daily obtained from the lofty heights that overhang the harbour, where extensive quarrying operations are being carried om. The materials thus obtained, when thrown down into the breakwater, forms masses from ten to fifty feet in thickness. The esti- [est- estimated] mated cost ef this new harbour, which. will consist of 316 acres ot sea-room, is 700,000 ., and' of this sum the Chester and Holyhead Railway Company was liable to the extent of 200,0802 but the measure introduced into parliament has relieved the company of this responsibility.

MONUMENT FUND, MANCHBSTER.-A [MANCHESTER.-A] meetin [meeting] of the subscribers to the Peel monument fund was held on Wednesday in the Mayor's parlour of the Town-hall, for the purpose of approving and confirming the resolution pre- [previously] viously [obviously] adopted by the committee, viz., 'That it be a bronze statue of colossal size, placed on a pedestal within the area of the Manchester Infirmary.

A woman named Hester Cooper summoned Ann Jefferies, the wife of a small farmer for assaulting her; and it appeared from the evidence that the complainant having in the neighbourhood the reputation of being an old witch, the defendant, who was under the delusion that she had been bewitched by her, forced her way into her house, threw her down, severely maltreated her, and witha [with] sharp instru- [inst- instrument] ment [men] punctured her hand till the blood flowed with suffi- [suffer- sufficient] cient [cent] copiousness to enable her to sprinkle her body with it as a means of dispelling the charm. The defendant insisted that the complainant had overpowered and hag- [hagridden] ridden her, and that she was justified in the course she took to relieve herself of the hag-spell. The magistrates told her if she did not compromise the matter, they would send her to gaol, and an arrangement was come to.- Daily News.

SELLING BRITISH WINES WITHOUT a LICENSE.-It will in the recollection of our readers that, some time ago, several parties were summoned, at the instance of the Licensed Victuallers' Association, for British wines without license, Mr. R. B. Cobbett [Corbett] appeared for the licensed victuallers, and Mr. Cooper for the TSODS [SODS] sum- [summoned] moned.

On Tuesday Mr. Cobbett [Corbett] and Mr. Cooper in court to hear his Judgment. He said he had given the question a careful consideration and, although the several acta were not very clear upon the point, the he drew from them was, that the parties ought to have a license, and therefore he would grant a conviction. It was understood that 5 the lowest penalty, would be imposed.-Mr. Cobbett [Corbett] said they were desirous to have the queation [question] finally settled, and intended to make an appeal to the Queen's Bench.
