16 Sbptember12. LATEST INTELLIGENCE. CiTr, Saturday Evening. The Bank returns are far from satisfactory. The gold has diminished to the extent of 180,000, and is now lower than ever it has been since Feel's accused bill came into operation.

The private deposits have also diminished, which shows a continued pressure for money and the liabilites of the Bank have greatly increased. How the Bank Directors, in the face of such a return as this, could have lowered their rate, appears to us most extraordinary and impolitic. The funds, in consequence of these returns, have fallen about i per and close 86 for money, and 874 i for the account. We are sorry to varinounce the failure of Messrs. Gower and which has added to the gloom.

in the foreign market, Spanish has risen about i per and Mexican has also improved. The general impression is, that both these stocks will be considerably higher. In other foreign funds the market is depressed. Shares are also depressed, partly from the pressure for money, and partly from the failure of a broker. CONSERVATIVE FESTIVAL AT BEWDLEY.

Friday week, the day fixed for the dinner to the new Conservative member for ihe boroughs of Bewdley and Siourport, was a memorable day in the history of these boroughs. Shortly before threo o'clock a large party of Conservatives, having assembled at the George Hotel, proceeded to the place of muster, the party being headed by a fine brass band procured from Kidderminster. The dinner took place in a large marquee erected in a field belong, ing to Mr. G. Baker, on the Stourporl-road, and about a quarter of mile from Bewdley.

After the usual toasts, next in order followed the toasts of The Army and Navy," and "The Bishops and Clergy of the United Kingdom." The Chairman said the next toast might be called the toast of the evening, and he need not tell them that roast was The health of their newly-elected member, Mr. Ireland." (Loud cheering.) The toast was drunk with great enthusiasm. Mr. Ireland said, the late contest for the representation of the united boroughs of Bewdley and Stonrport, had been attended with considerable difficulties on the Conservative side. He bad come among them as a stranger.

THE MABKEIS. COKN EXCHANGE, FaiDAY. The suDDUes of English wheat during the week have been rathe? larger th A and the demand having been brisk a good cSnce was made on the rates of previous market days. The quantity offering this morning was limited, and somewhat lePreVe large arrival of foreign wteat wlft the addilnof much flour from abroad, ftere has been more business doing than for some time paat.anu atan advance of Is to 2s per quarter since Monday. iOs neat qualities of wheat and flour are most in request, and there is at present a large inquiry for country trade as well as lor local consumption.

Barley experiences a moderate demand, whilst in beans ano peas there is no material change. Although tolerably supplied with foreign oats, the receipts are scanty from Ireland, Scotland, and coastwise, whilst there ib more disposition generally to purchase both amongst town and country dealers, and we note an advance in many instances of about 6d per quarter. Malt rather cheaper, and the flour trade continues Steady. We deem it necessary to call the attention of all parties connected with the corn trade to a new law which has received the sanction of all the principal bouses in the market, and which is to take effect from the 13th of this month, with reference to the usual credit, the period now allotted being one month instead of iioo. This law will, therefore, from the above date apply to every description of grain, flour, purchased by any party in Mark-lane or elsewhere.

It is important that the utmost publicity should consequently be given to such a new feature in the trade. GRANTING OF LICENSES. ROCHESTER.

King's Head, Old Onmnnn n-nn- 1 I. i. although he had the honour to be introduced by several highly honourable, influential, and respectable gentlemen, and be bad been taken in hand, on appearing amongst tbem, by a majority of the electors of the united boroughs.

Many who bad before supported she Conservative cause unfortunately were neutral in the late contest but he would speak of their neutrality though it certainly was not in his favour in terms of: great respect, for they bad preserved that neutrality generally, like honourable men, in a most strict and impartial manner, and in most cases there was no forfeiture of that neutrality. But he regretted to add, that in a few cases on the other side the neutrality which had been promised had not been preserved. (Hear, hear.) Wild these and other difficulties he bad had to contend for inej must all be aware that local, interest carried great weight in these matters, wherever it was available. He believed that if they searched the annals of the county or borough elections during the recent contests, they would not find an instance where energies so nnited had obtained so satisfactory a result. The bon.

member then fully explained bis principles and future in. tentions. These. are pretty well known to be Conservative. He declared his intention to oppose all further concession to the Roman Catholics.

There were many candidates who offered themselves again to their constituents at the recent elections who had voted for Mr. Watson's Bill and for the grant to Maynooth and these men bad assured their former constituencies that tbey would go no further with their votes in that direction. These were their professions for the future bat he, as an elector, would look more to acts done, than to professions on the hustings, for an estimate of the character and principles of a candidate (hear, hear) and be should regard Buch votes as tending rather to subvert than to strengthen the constitution of the country. Mr. Ireland next alluded to the subject of protection to native industry.

Whether the alteration of the law as it affected that protection would be productive of good or evil remained to be proved. (Hear, hear.) Although he was certainly a friend to the agricultural prosperity this country for he considered that on the prosperity of -that interest depended a great deal of the prosperity of the kingdom yet he considered to the commercial and manufacturing in terests also was owing a great deal of the prosperity of England. He mast say a few, words on tha subject of free trade, because the carrying of that measure was certainly a most extraordinary epoch in' the political world. They certainly did not expect such an act to proceed from Sir: Robert Peel be who was returned almost, as it were; on the very shoulders of the constituencies ol the English counties, tor Jie believed that, with hardly an exception, the county constituencies supported Feel. He dared to say tbat they were all aware that on a very recent occasion, at the election for North Warwickshire, Sir Bobert Peel gave a plumper vote for Mr.

Leigh. That vote spoke volumes it showed that with the Liberals and Whigs the voter's heart was fixed, and they might depend on it that by the side of the Liberals and Whigs he would take his place in the ensuing Parliament. Whether, after what had lately occurred, his supporters would be conteht to be dragged, as it were, at his chariot 'wheelSj and- linked under bis yoke, or whether they would cast aff this ignoble thraldom, remained to'be proved. He hoped the Conservatives in the next Parliament would prove themselves not mere pseudo-Conservatives, but good men and true, and then he should be proud to range himself in their ranks (cheers). He was desirous to see an improvement in the social condition ot the working and would use his best efforts to promote that end.

(Cheers;) He would just mention to them, by way of parenthesis, that when he first succeeded to the landed property which he now held, he found that much had been done in his neighbourhood by two excellent noblemen the Marquis of Bute and the Duke of Rutland to assist the agricultural labourers. They had adopted the allotment system, and had granted allotments of a quarter or half an acre each, according to the labourer's family; the ground to be cultivated by spade husbandry, and the tenants being: allowed to traffic in their produce, for it was not the object to make them small farmers. And here be would observe that he was sorry to state that, the potatoe disease had shown itself this year. He bad himself laid out about fifty-five allotments in the counties of Suffolk and Cambridge, and in no one instance had any of his allotment tenants ever been taken before the magistrates for larceny or felony. He mentioned this because he thought that the system worked well in giving the labourer a greater interest in bis country, raising his status, and contributing to the improvement of his moral character.

To improve the moral condition of the agricultural labourer he considered was a most important point in the welfare of a counlrv. a minus tu it imaui Aiait. wmie nan, Newport-market, Eling Kirby to Benjamin Calvert Thame. ST. JAMES'S.

Bennett and Harry Sibley Reeve, who were proprietors of the well-known sporting-house called the Duke of Clarence, opposite the Surrey Theatre, in the Lond on-road. A number of monster and other sweepstakes for the forthcoming races were held at the house of the above bankrupts, but the failure taking place before the great "event the entries" are, of course, a dead heat. The failure is about 3,000 in extent, and the assets will, probably, realize 1,100. After the admission of several proofs, a partner in the bouse of Messrs. Seager, Evans, and the distillers, and Mr.

Tomlin-son, of Golden-square, builder, were chosen assignees without opposition, and accepted the trust. An Unfortunate Bankeuptcy. In Re Cbbher, a Merchant in St. Maky Axe. The bankrupt has obtained his certificate without opposition.

His bankruptcy was occasioned by his having become one of the assignees of a person named Bond, of the Bull Inn, Holborn. The affairs were so favourably represented that he advanced a considerable sum to keep on the business for the benefit of the creditors but it was soon discovered that they had been deceived; and the bankrupt lost all he advanced, besides incurring liabilities. His co-assignee was Mr. Ovenston, and it is supposed that the. murderous attack by the latter on Mr.

Crawley, of Mark-lane, City; arose out of the unfortunate bankruptcies of Bond and Cremer, Mr. Crawley having brought an action against Ovenston. Thb Weekly Pebss and Publicans. Yesterday Mr. George Gellan, the landlord of the Brown Bear, Old Bailey, appeared on a summons at the Guildhall Police Committee, before Mr.

Alderman Copeland, for having sent out some beer on Sunday last during the hours of divine service. The defendant pleaded guilty. Mr. Alderman Copeland said it was necessary to have the evidence of the constable as to the nature of the offence. Edward Buckingham, police sergeant 88 City, deposed that about a quarter before ten o'clock last Sunday morning? he was in Seacoal-lane, when he observed the potboy to the defendant come out of the house having something under his apron; he went up and lifted the apron, when' he saw a can having some beer in it, and, in addition to which, the hoy had some bread and cheese.

Mr. Alderman Copeland Why, this is sending beer out of the house 1 Mr. Gellan said that the statement was perfectly correct-the beer and bread and cheese were actually required for refreshments. He was in the habit of serving tlie compositors of the Weekly Times, which was printed close to his place. The men were at work the whole of Saturday night up to a late hour on Sunday, consequently they were in want of some refreshments, and he certainly did not consider he was committing any offence in sending out what was merely necessary.

Mr. Alderman Copeland The law makes no distinction as to any class of persons it merely says that no publican shall keep open his house or serve any beer or exciseable liquor before one o'clock on the Sunday. Mr. Gellan. Here the men had been at work the whole night.they were unable to go home, and what was sent was only necessary.

Mr. Alderman Copeland: If you serve them you must take the consequences. For this offence you are liable to a penalty of 5, but as you have acted through error, yon will pay a fine of 20s and costs. Mr. Gellan wished to know how the compositors were to obtain necessary refreshments.

Mr. Alderman Copeland replied he could not give advice he sat there to administer the law as he found it. Mr. Gellan then paid the fine and costs. Flash Bebe-shops.

A fashionably-dressed young man, named George Thomas, the licensed owner of the Half Moon beer-shop, at the corner of Webber-row and the Waterloo-road, was summoned at the Southwark Police-court under the Police Act, for keeping a disorderly house, harbouring bad characters, and encouraging fighting among the customers. A week ago, a man named Smart, who ocoupies the house, was summoned to answer the complaint, but his.denying being the party licensed, the police were directed to rind out the actual proprietor. Inspector Rogers, after considerable trouble, ascertained that the license was taken out in the defendant's name, although he had nothing to do with the business. It appeared that for some time the police have had occasion to watch the beer-shop in question, on account of the assembling of characters well know to the police at race-courses and fairs. On the evening of the 26th police constable 56 saw a great mod collected around the door, and on looking in he perceived two men fighting.

The man Sharp was encoura-ing them on, and actually called persons in to come and see a first-rate fight. The language used on the occasion was of the worst description, and a number of bad characters were in the house. A number of the tradesmen in the neighbourhood witnessed the occurrence, and forwarded complaints to the superintendent. Police constable 131 said that he had frequently occasion to notice the beer-shop in question, as he had seen men of the most depraved character enter it. He witnessed the disturbance on the evening alluded to, and corroborated last witness's testimony.

Smart was always behind the bar, and appeared to be the master of the house. Inspector Rogers said that he believed the license was refused to Smart on account of the character he possessed, but the defendant afterwards took it out, and placed him in the house. He had never, on any occasion, seen the defendant in the house. The defendant said that he took out the license, and iived in the house a short time, but, not liking the business, he engaged his cousin (Smart) to look after it. He was uot present at the time mentioned by the police, and knew nothing about the disturbance.

It was the first time the house bad been informed of. Mr. Seeker said that it had been proved clearly that he was the party accused, consequently he was answerable for the conduct of his servants, and to see that no disturbances take place. This being the first time he was summoned before him, he should fine him only but he cautioned him how he conducted his house for the future. Thb New Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act.

On Thursday next tne New Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act will come into operation. Up to the 15th instant petitions can be filed in bankruptcy, and the cases commenced in that court will be concluded in the same. The Insolvent Debtors' Court will resume its sittings on Tuesday next for cases under the old system, and on Thursday next will receive petitions for protection under the new system. It seems to be in abeyance whether there shall be more than one court in Portugal-street. By the Act the Court of Review is abolished, as also the of the Insolvent Debtors' Court.

The insolvency business of the Court of Bankruptcy, within twenty miles of the Post-office, is transferred to the Insolvent Debtors' Court, and the other business of the same class to the County Courts. Among the provisions of the Act is one enabling the Court of Bankruptcy to sit other than in London, whereby considerable expense will be saved. Public-house RjjjgjssiES. Charles Matthews was charged at the Thames PoliceSraprt, with stealing nine bagatelle balls the property of of the Bell, RatcIiBe Highway" Mr. Vesper, pawnbroker, Commercial-road, deposed that on Friday evening the prisoner wished to pledge the balls, which he" said he had purchased three years since, in a street in Lime-house which had no existence.

Mr. Vesper gave him into custody. Mr. Whately, of the Bell, proved that the prisoner was in his house, playing bagatelle, Thursday night, and the balls were missed the next morning. Those produced were the same.

The prisoner declared he was tipsy, and somebody must have put them into his pocket. (Laughter.) He was an injured and innocent character. Committed for trial. Death of Hollinoswoth, the Comedian. Mr.

Fatal Accident at Blackfeiaes-beidqe.

On Friday a melancholy and fatal accident occurred off the Surrey side of Blackfriara-bridge, to a boy named John Tomlinson, aged nine years, wnose parents resiae in uornwau-roaa, Xiamoetn. it seems that the deceased and several companions were amusing themselves by tplaying on the logs of timber moored off the upper steps on the Surrey side of Blackfriars-bridge, and whilst ne was rocKing two 01 mem cuey separated to sucn a degree that his feet slipped off, and he suddenly disappeared.

A meeting toost place on Thursday last at Longford, between Mr. Jessop, high sheriff of the county, and Mr. Boynton, a cornet in the Inniskilling Dragoons, in consequence of a misunderstanding at a ball given by Captain Hill on the previous evening. Mr. Jessop having, in the course of the evening, addressed himself to Mr.

Boynton in terms expressive of his opinion that the latter gentleman had been too matked in his attentions to Mrs. Jessop, high words ensued. The consequence was a demand for satisfaction on the part of Mr. Boynton, and ultimately the meeting that we have already referred to. The conclusion of the affair was an exchange of shots, by one of which Mr.

Boynton was hit in the left shoulder, while the other passed through the hat of Mr, Jessop. Mr. Boynton's wound is not, as we understand, likely to involve any serious consequences. The Gbbat Beitain Steam-ship. It was yesterday stated at the Admiralty, that this leviathan of the ocean is about to be purchased by Government.

On examination the injuries sustained during the late stranding in Dundrum Bay, on the coast of Ireland, are not so extensive as were at first expected, and that the repairs required will soon be completed. This splendid vessel is to be transformed into a guard ship, and other purposes, if required, for the conveyance of troops. The Hoesb v. Steam. A few days ago a rather humorous incident occurred on the Newcastle and Berwick Railway, by which the comparative powers of the horse and the locomotive engine were fairly tested.

As the engine No. 137 was coming to Newcastle, and when near Chat-hill (a part of the line on which Messrs. M'Kay, the uontractore, are still employed), a spirited horse, belonging to Messrs. M'Kay, whether from fright or frolic, suddenly set off at full speed in front of the engine, which was going at the rate of thirty miles an hour. The driver of the engine, fearful of the consequences, eased the engine, and endeavoured, by frequent shrill whistles, to drive the animal off the line, but in vain; for a full mile or more the horse held on his way with unabating speed.

At length the engine coming rather close upon him, the animal darted on to the parellel line, and, as if determined not to be beaten, still proceeded, and rushed once more in front of the engine. At this point the horse had run nearly three miles, and the driver, finding himself delayed, resolved to pass his opponent at all risks, and, increasing the speed of the engine, soon came close upon his quarters, when the animal bounded and. kicked up its heels as the train passed, to the great amusement of the driver, stoker, ahiseveral of the passengers, The entire distance which the horse ran with the train was about four miles.
