The Incorporation of Huddersfield.

Yesterday afternoon, an adjourned meeting of the Incorporation Committee was held, for the purpose of renewing the action which has already been taken on the subject of the incorporation of Huddersfield, and deliberating upon the course to be pursued for the future. It was for some time doubtful whether the meeting could take place, owing to the small attendance of the members. After discussion, the following resolution was adopted:— Moved by Mr. E. Clayton, and seconded by Mr. T.H. Broadbent: "That in the opinion of this Committee the meeting held at the Magistrates' Room, on the 16th of June last, was not such a meeting as was contemplated by the resolution which determined to convene it; and that the resolution then adopted ought not to be regarded as obligatory on the committee. Further, that in the judgment of this Committee the incorporation movement ought to be prosecuted with vigour: and that a committee meeting be held on Monday, the 28th inst., at eight p.m., to determine on the boundary for the proposed charter of incorporation."
