Mysterious Disappearance of a Huddersfield Gentleman.

A very painful case is now engaging the attention of many persons in Huddersfield, on account of the disappearance of John Ralph Cuthbert, a man of upwards of 50 years of ago, who resided at 107, Church Street, Paddock, and who for about 30 years has been in the employ of Messrs. Woodhead & Barker, cloth merchants, Dundas Street, Huddersfield, as cashier. He has been a member of Paddock Congregational Chapel many years, and a deacon down to the present time, and has hitherto borne the highest character. Last Friday morning he went to his employment as usual, but nothing has been seen of him since noon that day. He is a married man, and has a wife, two grown-up sons, and a younger daughter, and a niece lived with him and his family.
