Incorporation of Huddersfield.

The committee for obtaining a charter of incorporation for this borough met on Thursday evening, when the answers of the noblemen and gentlemen who had been applied to or the subject were read. They all gave the committee complete satisfaction, particularly those of Lord Morpeth and the Earl of Zetland. The latter says he sees no difficulty, and should that be the case, his best services are at the service of the committee. He is one of the trustees of the late Sir John Ramsden.
