THE YORK HERALD MONDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1881 7 AND DISTRICT. 3wTS K155 history, and they were as a living sermon, preaching to us the lessons of their nation's history. In the remainder of the sermon Canon Fleming, in glowing language, spoke of the restoration of the Jews to Palestine. There was a glorious future in store for the Jews a brighter day than the brightest of their past days was before them. The days of their persecution were numbered, and would soon be ended.

They would yet acknowledge the Messiah and be saved. Jerusalem would be rebuilt, and a Christian temple probably stand where the old Jewish Temple formerly stood. There was a movement in the Jewish mind. Many had been converted. There where 130 clergymen of the Church of England who were now preaching the Christian faith which once, like Saul of old, they sought to destroy.

In conclusion the preacher appealed for support to the London Society. The tender of Mr. James Baker, who agreed to do the wura ior jliojo wm. was accepted. Manor Comer.

At this Court, which was held on Friday, the steward was requested to enter on the rolls of the Court a record of the ci rou instances under which, on behalf of themselves and all others who owe suit and service there, the jury desired to express the esteem and respect in which Admiral Thos. Chaloner, as lord of this manor, is deservedly held. Expression has bean riven by local bodies corporate of their appreciation of Admiral Chaloner's important services during many years in matters of local government, and the Admiral's recent illness has made manifest the anxiety of all classes of his neighbours for the preservation of his valuable life but, as a result of that illness must be the absence, during the ensuing winter, of the beneficent lord of this manor from the home of his ancestors, those who owe him suit and service cannot but- add their prayer that he may return to Loughull in health and strength, and that, in any event, his bright example as a landowner continuously resident on his estate since his succession, may, in these anxious times, further the common weal, as truly as it cheers the hearts of those within this ancient Manor of Gisborough. A copy of the above record, beautifully written and illuminated, was then signed by the steward of the manor, the foreman and the jury, the rector of the parish, and the agent of the estate, and was submitted to Admiral Chaloner, who with much ft sling, accepted it HULL. Preston Church.

The proceeds of the fancy fair held in Hull in aid of the Restoration Fund of the above church amounted to 610. Death or A Well-known Hotel Proprietor. Mr. B. Bogeett, landlord of the Paragon Hotel, Paragon-street, died on Saturday morning after a short illness.

Thi Chairman or the; Hull and Barnslst Rail-stay Comfant. A bust of Lieutenant-Colonel Gerard Smith, chairman of the Hull and Bsrnsley Railway Company, was on view at the studio of Mr. W. D. Keyworth, on Saturday.

The work has been executed to the order of the directors of the company. The likeness is admirable, and the whole of it as a work of art is excellent. It is intended to place the bust in the Board-room of the company. Tux Scaelxt Fevkr EpldrmIbx On turday, at the Borough Police-court, Mr. Twiss granted an order for the removal of three children suffering from scarlet fever in Maror-street to the fever hospital.

It has bees decided by the Sanitary Committee of the Hull Corporation to recommend the Coancil to. purchase Wilton House, Holderness-rond, for 2.700, for the purposes of a fever hospital, in consequence of the large urmbcr of persons at present afflicted with searlet fever in Hull. Heavy Salvage Claim. A claim of upwards of 1,200 has bc9n sent in to Messrs. Bailey and Leetham, of Hull, the 'owners of the steamship Durham, by Mr.

R. Roberts, the owner of the smack Silvery Wave, of Grimsby, for asshtaaoa rendered to the Durham during the recent gale. It is contended that when the Silvery Wave first sighted the Durham the latter was in a perfectly helpless condition, as the result of her rudder having been carried away. A rope was got out from the Silvery Wave and made fast to the Durham, which steamed ahead, the smack acting as a rudder. The Silvery Wave had a narrow escape of foundering through the screw of the Durham striking her and cutting into several planks, but fortunately not right through.

PoLica-cocRT. On Saturday, before Mr. Twiss, stipendiary magistrate, Tan D. Anderson, a negro, was charged with stealing a pair of trousers, the pro- Srty of a fisherman, named Henry Walker, living in lapel-court, Osborne-street. At the latter end of the previous week prosecutor left hh bag of clothing at a house in Providence-court, Little Queen-street.

He saw the prisoner there at the time, and on the following day the trousers were missing. On Friday evening prosecutor was going up the court, when he met the accused, who was wearing the trousers. He asked him to give them up, and as he refused to do so he called a policeman and gave him into custody. He now pleaded guilty, and was sentenced ta 30 days' imprisonment. Louisa Clarkson, a young woman, was charged with being drunk and d'sorderly in Waterworks-street on Friday night.

She admitted the charge, and sard she intended to make away with herself if they did not look after her. It was stated that prisoner was sent to the Penitentiary a few weeks ago. On being asked why she did not atop there she complained of the treatment of the matron. She was ill a few days, and was told to go to the workhouse. Prisoner had been several times previously convicted for various and she was now fined 20s.

and costs. Joseph Nickoline, a young man, was charged with being drunk and disorderly, and assaulting P.C. Gardham (79). When prisoner was taken into custody he became very violent, and struck the officer in the face, cutting his Hp. The accused did not deny the charges, and was fined Is.

Henry T. Pudsey, Major commanding 2nd EY.A.V., and chair man of meeting of officers. Some idea of the services rendered by Lord Londesborough may be gleaned from the following facta The first busbies, costing 500, were presented by bis lordship; for many years he subscribed .300 per annum to both this corps and the 1st Kast York Rifles and some yean ago he gave a grand entertainment at Grimston to 6,000 volunteers, at a cost of between 4,000 and 5,000.

Bolckow, Vaughan, and Eston mines. The deceased was bringing away some ironstone with a bar when a piece fell, and before he could get out of the way it alighted on his foot and crushed it so severely that it had to be afterwards amputated.

Purchase of tub Corporation Buildings by thi Government.

We understand that the recent negotiations between the Government and the Corporation for the purchase of the Corporation buildings for the purposes of a Customs House have resulted in the premises changing hands for a sum of 2,000. The Corporation buildings are near the river, and are well adapted for the increasing business of the Customs of the port. Two yea's will be allowed the Corporation to procure new offices. The Bible class in connection with St. Hilda's Parish Church have made a gift to their church of a handsomely carved oak communion table.

RICHMOND. The Cattle Stealing Case. At the County Petty Sessions on Saturday, before Messrs.

GUpiii-Brown, Christopher Cradock, and C. G. Tate, William Heugh, formerly relieving officer for Richmond Onion, and George MoCov, of Liverpool, were charged with stealing five cattle, worth X79. the property of Mr. Thomas Hengh, farmer, of Rock Castle, near Richmond, brother to the first-named prisoner.

Superintendent Gregory conducted the prosecution. Prosecutor stated that a fortnight previous to his losing the beasts his brother spent a week with him. On the 9th instant he had seven beasts in Blacksmith Field, and the following morning at half-past three, when passing the field on his way to Darlington, he noticed the gate standing open. He went into the field to see if his cattle were there. They were missing, and he shortly afterwards found two in the lane.

Failing to find the other fire, he went on his journey. On arriving at Darlington he saw the five missing beasts in the market. Supt. Gregory handed the beasts over to him, and he sent them back to Rock Castle. He gave no person any instructions to take the beasts to Darlington.

Frederick Jolly, of Luck 's-terrace, Darlington, said on Monday morning, the 10th about six o'clock, he was in Henry Pig's stable, apposite the Cattle Market. The prisoner Heugh asked if he would mind the beasts, which were the only cattle in the market si the time. Alfred W. Trees, butcher, of Darlington, saw McCoy standing talking to another stout gentleman, who wore a blue topcoat and kid gUjves, who bore a resemblance to Mr. Heugh, and the former prisoner sold three heifers to Thomas Button, of Darlington, butcher.

P.C. Brunskill, of Darlington, spoke to seeing McCoy in the Cattle Market with five beasts. Going to him, he asked him where he got the cattle from, bat failing to receive a satisfactory reply he threatened to lock him up on a charge of stealing them. Prisoner then said, They are my own cattle I bought them of a man, snd have to make a profit out of them." He took him into custody, and on the way to the police-station he said, They are not my cattle they belong to a gentleman from Liverpool. They call turn Mr.

Heugh and I have a commission to sell Gregory, of Richmond, said he apprehended Heugh at Darh'ngton. On being charged with the offence, prisoner said, "Has my brother got the beasts back again?" He afterwards brought both prisoners to Richmond. Prisoner Heugh said, With respect to McCoy, he is innocent of the charge. I engaged him to 00 Tie along with me. That is all I have to say at present." McCoy said he met Mr.

Heugh last Wednesday fortnight in Liverpool He told him he had just returned from his brother's, in Yorkshire, and intended going back again to sell some cattle of his that were on his brother's farm. He asked him if he would accompany him, and he would pay expenses. They left Liverpool on the Sunday morning. After staying at Leeds and Harrogate, some time after dark they proceeded to this farm. The cattle were taken away as his own property.

At Darlington Heugh asked him to sell them, saying there were some people there he did not want to see. Heugh told him his brother owed him a lot of money. The Chairman said there was sufficient evidence to justify them in sending the case for trial at the York assizes. 8CARBBO'. Tax Spa.

The stormy and unpleasant character of the- weather of the last ten days tended very largely to keep those visitors indoors who have not been driven from the town, but nevertheless in the evenings large lumbers of both visitors and residents have braved the elements in order to visit the Spa and listen to the music discoursed by the band in the Grand Hall, and they have been exceedingly gratified not only by the excellent selections offered by Mr. Jones, but likewise by the charming singing of Miss Helena Arnim, who was repeatedly greeted with rapturous applause. This week the. vocalist will be another popular lady, and already well-known in Searbro', in the person of Madame Osbcme Williams, who cannot fail to score another brilliant success. Attempts at Housebreaking.

On Friday evening, three successive attempts at breaking into buildings for the purpose of plunder took place in North-street and its vicinity, and in two of the Instances the thieves were successful in their endeavours and carried off small amounts of money. The places referred to are the Co-operative Stores, a butcher's shop near, and the brewery of Mr. Mackereth, which is situated in the rear of the above premises. In the former place the attempt to gain entrance was an unsuccessful one, but in each of the latter the thieves were triumphant, and in the case of Mackereth's brewery they robbed him of about 2, and in the other case took away a few coppers. The police are investigating the matter.

Thi Closing Season. No better indication of the closing of the season can be afforded than by the flight of the numerous street bands which annually visit the charming town, and delight in a higher or lesser degree the visitors and residents by the music they discourse. like summer swallows thev come ad go, and we doubt not they invariably find their visits profitable and appreciated by the general public. We know this to be the case as regards Pritchard'8 band, which is not only the most popular, and deserveijjy so, but is one of the very last ta quit us, and whilewe know that their advent is always hailed with pleasure, their departure, it is equally certain, is a matter of regret therefore it is that the announcement of this week being the last of their sojourn for the season inspires us with some degree of dulnebs but Mr. Pritchard promises to enliven us a little with some soul -stirring music on the usual farewell night, which is fixed for Saturday next, in front of the Assembly Rooms, as usual.

We trust that the weather will prove favourable for the al fresco concert; if it is we can promise our readers a great musical treat, and the band a well-merited ovation. STOCKTON. Accident at South Stockton. A youth, engaged by Mr. Bolton, farmer, of Hay ton, was delivering milk oa Saturday night at South Stockton, when the pony he was driving took fright at an engine, and dashed down Mandale-road, and when near the Coffee Tavern the trap caught the kerbstone, and threw the youth on to the road, injuring him rather severely.

Heartless Case of Child Desertion. Ou Saturday morning Muriel Rogers was sentenced by the borough magistrates to one month's imprisonment with hard labour for deserting her infant child, on the 5th August. She left her infant in charge of a little girl in the street, and absconded. WHITBY. Misconduct ik a Licensed Housi at Staithes.

At the North Riding Police-court, on Saturday, Robert Cummings, fisherman, was fined including costs, for disorderly conduct, and refusing to quit the licensed premises of Robert Taylor, at Staithes, on the 15th inst. The Lifeboat Service. The Royal National Lifeboat Institution have decided to place a larger and more powerful lifeboat on the Whitby station, which is one of the most important on the north-east coast the largest of the two boats now on the Btalion having been found too small in some recent actions. CANON FLEMING ON THE RESTORATION OF THE JEWS. Yesterday afternoon, Canon Fleming preached before a very large audience in the Nave of York Minster in aid of the London Society for Promoting Christianity among the Jews.

He took for bis text Jer. 6, 7. He said the words of the text told us of a future restoration of the Jews to their own land. The word restoration implied a former condition of happiness and greatness which the Jews had altogether lost, and to which God had said they shoeld be restored. The word took in the past, present, and future of the Jewish people.

On these three points Canon Fleming eloquently dilated. He sketched their national afflictions on account of sin, the climax being reached in the destruction of Jerusalem, and the dispersion of the Jews. Other nations had their origin in obscurity or mingled with many traditions, but there was no obscurity about the history of the Jews. Where was Britain the days when the Jews were at the zenith of their fame Perchance where that Minster now stood there was the prmeval forest the haunt of savages and the lair of wild beasts. All that we possessed of the most sacred things was derived from the Jews.

They were the vehicle of all pure religion and knowledge for other nations. Who was the oldest historian in the world 1 They had been accustomed to speak of Herodotus as the father of history, and yet Moses was born 1080 years before Herodotus. Who was the oldest poet in the world Long before the strains of Hesiod and the lyre of Orpheus, David was the sweet singer of Israel. The Jews were the preservers of Godfs revelation, and devoutly studied the oracles of God. Canon Fleming then quoted an eloquent passage from Benjamin Disraeli's Life of Lord George Bentinck," in which the highest eulogium was paid to the life and character of Jesus Christ.

The preacher went on to describe the present condition of the Jews dispersed everywhere, no king, no government, no nation. At the siege of Jerusalem more than one million of them perished, and since then they had in all countries been hated and persecuted, even unto death. Yet there were 16,000,000 of Jews in the world to-day, and something like of them in our own country. The finger of God was on their been on the side of the lord of the soil ajunst the people, when Dish members sought the adoption of some law that would stand between the poor peasantry and the rapacity of landlordism. If the warning given years ago by the Irish party had boom true as he believed it had that the time would 00 no, il their efforts were rejected to affect some understand ing between the Irish peasantry and landlords, when the Irish people would be only content with the total abolition of landlordism, then no man living on the earth to-day was more responsible for that lamentable state of things than William Ewart Gladstone.

Mr. Gladstone made another statement in Leeds. He said that the Dish Parliamentary party did all in their Siwer to defeat and destroy the Land Bill in the ouse of Commons. That, like his other statements, was false. When that Bill was introduced it was a most difficult matter to understand it, so technical and intricate was it, it was like a Chinese puzzle, still it was clear to the Irish party that it fell miserably short of the aspirations and just requirements of the Irish people.

They felt-that it did not constitute anything like the platform set up by the great mass of the Irish nation, and therefore consjstontly they could not vote for the second reading of the Bill. But he would remind the English Premier that although they did not vote for his Bill they did not vote against it, aad when that Bill came into Committee the Irish party struggled to the best of their ability to add amendments to improve and strengthen it, and the amendments which they carried were those received in Ireland with greatest favour. He would further remind the Premier that when his Bill was in jeopardy and it was in jeopardy on two separate occasions when it was endangered by the open defection of his best supporters, when Whigs went from him in a body, and there appeared every danger that the Bill would be lost, it was by the solid vote of Mr. Parnell and his party (loud cheers) that the Bill was saved. The Premier went further in his misstatements.

He said that the policy recommended by the Land League and Mr. Parnell to secure in Ireland before the Land Commision a number of test cases was ridiculous and absurd, that cases would be brought into court where no further reduction was possible, and that the Irish people would therefore be misled as to the value of the Bill. It would have been more honest, and certainly more statesmanlike, if Mr. Gladstone had restrained his impatience, if he had waited for one short fortnight until tost cases had been before the court. He (the speaker) happened to know something about these test cases.

The policy of having test cases was a very wise one. It was a wise policy because three weeks ago ths Irish landlords met in Dublin and subscriber a fund of 40,000 to defeat the Land Bill iu the Court. Why did not Mr. Gladstone arrest the landlords (Loud cheers It was not without some previous knowledge, Mr. Gladstone's memory might have carried him back ten years ago.

All remembered how his Bill then was lauded, to the skies. They also remembered how, when this Bill went into the Courts in Ireland, the Dish landlords, then as now, formed themselves into an organisation to defeat the object of the Bill, and they knew further that they succeeded. Three years after the passing of that Bill the number of evictions in Ireland vastly exceeded those in the three years preceding the Bill. It had taken them nine years to convince the average Eaglish intelligence that the Bill was a failure. They found at the end of nine years one million less of people in Ireland.

(Shame.) They found bhemselrea in the pangs of a frightful famine, and once more they had to send their representatives through the earth begging for bread for their oountry-men. (Shame.) That was the result of the Land Bill of 1870 that was the result of the organised opposition of the Irish landlords, and he thought Mr. Gladstone might have remembered that the Irish landlords, who so successfully defeated the Bill of 1870, would also defeat the Bill of 18f31, unless they were met by the united strength and the perfect organisation of the Irish people. Would they for a moment expect some poor tenant from Gal way or from Wexford to go up to the Land Court, having secured what legal assistance he could at some village or some small market town in his immediate neighbourhood, and put his strength and legal support against the powerful organisation of the landlords, backed up by all the legal acumen which money could purchase? The proposition was ridnculous. The only real way of giving Gladstone's Bill a chance was that fair test cases shoiUd be selected.

By these means some approximate standard of value would be reached, and the future operations of the Lend Court considerably simplified. It was the only possible course to secure a satisfactory trial for the Land Bill, and it was for recommending this, it was for urging this upon the Irish people, that Mr. Parnell and bis colleagues were in prison that day. Shame, Mr. Gladstone made a deliberate misstatement when he said only sham cases would be brought into Court.

Why! the estates selected were estates of Bence Jones, iu County Cork, and Nathaniel Buckley, in the Galtree Mountains. It was notorious 1 hat upon both these estates, particularly upon the Galtree estates, the tenantry were rack-rented. He was speaking to one of the tenants in Dublin at the Convention, and this man, in describing to him their grievances in powerful and picturesque language, said that the poor people down there for many years past have been crucified between two thieves," and there was no doubt whatever that the land was excessively hampered. Other estates from which cases were selected were those of the Earl of Kenmare and the Duke of Devonshire. It was quite notorious that the rentals cf these two estates were fair average rentals, they were not excessively high or low and in all Ireland no two estates were better tltt i to gie a fair test.

Referring to the charge brought generally against individual members of the Irish party for trying to throw dust in the eyes of thelnsh people and trying to hinder them from receiving the benefits of a good measure, he characterised this vaa ridiculous. Mr. Healy, M.P., was not only in favour of giving the Bill a fair chance but took the trouble to print an admirable guide to the Land Act for the guidance and direct-tion of Irish farmers how to take advantage of its benefits. There was every desire to give the Bill a fair trial. In concluding, Mr.

Barry said that they were met there that night to assure their fellow countrymen in Ireland that in this struggle they would support and sustain them. The Irish people were now on their trial. For two years past they had in the face of high heaven met, they had sworn their allegiance to certain principles, they had declared that they would struggfo to the end for the land for the people and the total abolition of landlordism." They were met by an organised power, brought face to face with the brute force of a great empire. Their only chance and their only duty was to maintain firm and unbroken the principles of the Land League, to act upon the advice of the Land League, and not to be driven a single step into unconstitutional agitation, not to allow their minds to be inflamed with the wild justice of revenge. It was pre-eminently the duty of Irishmen in England, Scotland, and America, and elsewhere to stand by the people at home in this crisis.

Let thein remember that meetings such as those, importan as they were, were not sufficient. They must re member that during the coming winter the merciless ami of landlordism would be raised against the Irish people, and hundreds, it might be thousands, of their country people would be thrown out upon the roadside. It was their duty to succour and sustain thorn. The sympathy wanted at the present hour was neither cheers nor enthusiasm. The sympathy wanted was real practical support.

If every Irishman iu that meeting registered a vow" in his bosom to send a day pay each week and help bis countrymen at home, it would be this knowledge that would bear up and sustain their people in this dark hour. He believed that all would witness, before much time had gone bv, that Ireland, who had buffered so many storms and had had such a dark aad chequered history, would burst from the'eerements which had bound her for centuries, and stand forth before the world in, the full splendour of entire freedom. (Loud applause.) The resolution was then put to the meeting, and was declared carried with but one dissentient. Captain Newstead proposed that "This meeting desires to thank Mr. Joseph Cowen, the senior member of this town, for the earnest, able, and unselfish advocacy of democratic principles as applied to the present Irish crisis." Mr.

James Birkitt seconded the resolution, which was supported in a speech of considerable otatorical power by Mr. John Fergcson, of Glasgow, who was one of the organisers of the Land League. In his address he argued that the Land League was a constitutional organisation, and that now that it was proclaimed, anotheiforganisation having the same principles should be called into existence. He submitted that the Land Bill was unsound in principle, and that not until feudal landlordism, as only seen in the Cnittd Kingdom and Ireland, was abolished would ihe land question be settled. In bis speech Mr.

Ferguson was repeatedly cheered, and sat down amid prolonged applause. The reso.ution he had supported was then unanimously adopted, and the meeting separated with cheers for the chairman, speakers, and Mr.Coweu, M.P. r- urou npt as a small itLlS Mr Singleton's well-known judgment as a breeder of sheen and his heifer prize cms having been bred heifS areaTTthe shorthorns belonging to Mr. Robt.

Yesterday morning, at York Minster, the Rev. Canon Brooke, vicar of Bath, prebendary of North Newbald, preached on behalf of the Hational Society for Promoting Cristianitv amongst the Jews. The rev. gentleman selected for his text the 21st chapter of St. John's Gospel, 1 7th verse "Lord, thou knowest all things, thou knowest that I love thee.

Jesus saith unto him, feed my sheep." In the course of aa instructive doctrinal address, Canon Brooke dwelt upon the love of God to man, the Almighty's desire fur the love of his people, and the unspeakable love of the Saviour. The question put to Peter was all-important to them, and was combined with the command which followed it. Every one that real'y did love Jesus was commanded to "feed my Here were two great Christian principle- only he who loved could feed, and whoever loved Christ would seek to feed His lambs and Hi, sheep. Work for Christ was an evidence of love fW Him. The Jews ere especially Christ's sheep, and it was their duty as Christians tr, preach the gospel to them.

The peculiar circumstances of the Jews' dispersion in small numbers all over the world made it necessary that the Gospel must be preached to them as a special part of the missionary work of the Church. Special men with special quaufications titid special methods were required for this work. It was therefore that a special society existed for promoting Christianity amonget the Jews. It had (listed for many years, and God had greatly blessed its labours. Macv of all ranks in many countries had been bi ought by its instrumentality to acknowledge the Messiah as their king, and numbers of converted Jews were labouring amongst them as ministers of 1he Church of England.

In conclusion he appealed to them to Bupport the society with their contributions. The offertory was devoted to the funds of the above named society. The Yorkshire Fine Art Institution. The attendance on Saturday was very numerous, two or three cheap trips bringing several hundreds of visitors to the city. The Exhibition was crowded in the early part of the evening, in spite of a continuous downpour of heavy rain.

The very excellent promenade band from Leeds, conducted by Mr. Sydney Jones, was present, and as the popularity of this troupe of artistes, upwards of thirty in number, has been established in York by previous visits, their performances were listened to with much pleasure. The opening picoe, The Policeman's Chorus," was charmingly rendered, snd was duly appreciated by the company. A selection from "La Fille du Tambour Major" was executed with a liveliness and vivacity in the humorous and burlesque style that did full justice to Offenbach, the composer. 'The TurkishJPatrol," which has been several times played at tha Exhibition since its opening in May last, was this evening as fresh as ever, and was received with that mark of approval which has always been associated with its performance.

The concert aria, which wound up the first part, was a delicious example of instrumentation throughout, and the intricate and flowing solo on the clarionet had an able executant in Mr. J. S. Jones, jun. The second part was most interesting, the imitation of the sound of toys and the singing of birds being very successful.

The grotesque march by A. B. Allen was a marvellous effort on the part of the band, the singular and quaint music produced being much appreciated. It was intended to have given the Farewell Symphony by Haydn, during the performance of which the instrumentalists leave the orchestra seriatim, creating much merriment, but unfortunately by some mishap the music parts had been left at Leeds, and the fine fantasia Mirelle" was substit uted or the symphony. The piece, "Reminiscences of Ireland was played with a dash and fpirit that elicited general commendation, and the voncert terminated with the National Anthem.

Sale of Shorthorn Cattle at Dringhouses. On Thursday next Mr. J. Thornton will offer for sale at the Turf Tavern, Dringhouses, York, between fifty snd tixty shorthorn cattle, the property of Mr. J.

B. Singleton, of Great Givendale, near Pocklington, and other gentlemen. The catalogue comprises the bulk of the herd so long bred by Mr. James B. Singleton at -ftivendale, and which are now to be sold in Aquence of the farm being given np.

It has been in existence since about the year 1846, and it was from this herd that those magnificent animals, the Lady Waterioos, were obtained by Mr. Cheney, of Gaddes-by, Mr. Singleton having purchased Waterloo 4th at Mr. Bates' sale at KirklevLugton. in 1850.

Purchases vere also made from those eminent breeders the hte Earl Zetland, at TJpleatham, and Mr. John Emmerson, as well as from Lord leversham's herd at Buncombe Park, and of the stock of the late Mr. A. Mavnard. The Vary Bulbs are a valuable familv; bred from Ruth py Remus, bought at Mr.

John femmersou's sale in 1861, it has been most prolific, producing many prizewinners, and upwards of 2,000 have been realised by he sale of animals from it. Mary Ruth and three of ler daughters won the 30 prize for the best family if shorthorns, in a class of seven entries, at the Forkshire Show at Hull this year. The sires have teen of the fashionable Bates blood several are by Duke of Oxford 37th (bred by the Duke of Devon-tu're), who was long used, and Silent Duke, by Lord celebrated bull Duke of Connaught LAND LEAGUE MEETING IN NEWCASTLE. On Saturday night a demonstration to protest against the coercive policy now being pursued in Ireland was held in the Circus, NewcMtie-on-Tyne, when the arge building was filled by an audience almost unanimous in its disapproval of the Government action. It must be remarked that those who attended conducted themselves in a very orderly manner, and interruptions of an unseemly character were markedly absent.

The "indignation," vocally expressed towards a-porters of the Government policy, was confined to hisses and hooting, and there was absent any of that rowdyism which might have been expected at a gathering on such an exciting topic. Amongst the names of legislators which called forth an expression of opinion were those of Mr. Aahtan Dilke, the junior member for the borough Mr. Burt, M-P. for Morpeth and Mr.

James, M.P. for Gateshead. The names of Gladstone and Bright were of course received with demonstrations of displeasure. On the other hand, Mr. Joseph Cowen's name obtained an ovation, and as will be seen from our report below a vote of thanks for bis sympathy was unanimously adopted.

Mr. F. Healy, MP, was to have attended the meeting, but urgent business in Paris prevented his attendance, and his place was supplied by Mr. John Barry, -P. for Wexford.

Mr. Barry and Mr. John Ferguson, of Glasgow, shared the oratorical efforts of the evening. Mr. Barry delivered a bitter attack on Mr.

Gladstone, and in the course of his speech made use of these words, We must remember we are unarmed and defenceless. We must remember that we are entirely unequipped for a struggle in the field. Were it otherwise I would not be here to counsel calmness and moderation." Mr. Ferguson assailed the Land Bill. In his opening remarks, alluding to his English education, he said Such men as me might be the Ambassadors between the two peoples such men as me might be the means of bringing together in harmony and union the two nations.

But, if such may not be, if it must be war between England and Ireland, Irishmen of Newcastle, come what will, so help me God, I must stand by my country." These two expressions were greeted with loud cheers, although the chairman of the meeting endeavoured to be the balm in Gilead at the opening of the proceedings. Incidentally it may be mentioned that a drum and fife band decked in green was present, intended, no doubt, to cool, if it were needed, the temperaments of the audience. It was observed that at the close of the meeting this musical combination struck up the tune familiar to us as Tramp, tramp, the boys, are marching." Dr. Rutherford, a well-known local minister, presided, and he was supported by Mr. Barry, M.P.

Mr. Ferguson, Mr. Jno. Bryson, Captain Newstead, Mr. Jaa.

Birkitt, and a goodly company. The secretary read letters and telegrams of inability to attend from Mr. Storey, M.P. (Sunderland), Mr. Thompson, M.P.

(Durham), Mr. Joseph Co wen, M.P., who it was stated was detained in London on important business Mr. Patterson, miners' agent Mr, Crawford, and Mr. Lloyd Jones. After Dr.

Rutherford had delivered a short address, counselling calmness and moderation, Mr. Joun Bryson proposed the following resolution That this meeting desires to express its dissatisfaction with and abhorrence of the coercion policy now being pursued in Ireland, whereby the freely elected representatives of the people and other citizens are being arbitrarily arressed, pub he meetings are being prohibited, and a free expression of public opinion restrained by unconstitutional employment of armed force." Mr. Brvson, in moving this resolution, urged calmness, and use of means strictly constitutional, looking upon violence as only worthy of tyrants and unenlightened men. He condemned England's whole policy to Ireland, and asserted that we had destroyed Irish commerce, and had left her only the land, and this we had parcelled out amongst adventurers. In addressing working men he complained that English trades' organisations had been doing nothing towards enlightening their members and their fellow-men on he true merits of the Dish question, and he wished that Mr.

Burt, would decide oue way or the other. Mr. G. Hill seconded the resolution, which was supported by Mr. John Barrt, M.P.

for County Wexford, who was loudly cheered. Mr. Barry first apolegised for the absence of his friend Mr. Healy, M.P., who telegraphed to bim at Sheffield that morning that urgent business required his presence in Paris," and urged him to take his place at that meeting. He was glad to have the opportunity of meeting his fellow townsmen upon an occasion like the present.

Another reason which led him to attend was because he held, and had always held, that there still survived in the North of England, in spite of the hollow hypocrisy of latter-day Libera' ism, a great deal of the old Radical spirit which carried the flag of liberty and justice through many a hard fought struggle in the past, and he felt that in addressing an audience in Newcastle-on-Tyne, he was addressing an audience where there was existing a stronger, sounder, and better Liberalism than in any other part of the United Kingdom. They had mei under of great pain and humiliation. Their country, Ireland, was at this hour face to face with a crisis more serious and trying than any she had passed through during the last century. They had on the one hand an undivided people, banded together within the lines of the constitution, demanding with one voice the abolition of a land system which was well nigh destroying the country. They had on the other side a strong and powerful Government having at its disposal the entire material resources of a great Empire, a Government which had abandoned every tradition of liberty hear, and no, no and trampled under foot every shred of the constitution no," and "yes, setting up in its place the bare gaunt law of brute force.

(Shame.) He repeated, there was not at that hour a vestige of the British constitution left in Ireland. Public leaders, without trial, without charge, were thrust into prison. The officers and members of a political organisation were seized and imprisoned throughout the country. The right of public meeting was entirely suspended. Peaceful citizens, aye women and children, were bludgeoned and bayoneted in the streets of their metropolis.

(Cries of Shame," and biases.) And all this system of intimidation and terrorism was carried out by a Liberal Government (hisses) presided over by a heaven-sent Liberal Minister (hisses) who was, until recently, regarded as one of the Apostles of Liberty in Europe. Well, in the presence of circumstances such as these, under conditions so insulting and provocative, it would be no wonder if a high-spirited people Like the Irish were moved and stirred to their utmost depths. But it was their duty, even under circumstances like those, to be perfectly calm and collected. They must remember thsy were unarmed and defenceless. They must remember they were entirely unequipped for a struggle in t'ie field.

Were it otherwise (loud and cheers), he would not be there that night to counsel calmness and moderation. (Loud cheers renewed.) But being unarmed and defenceless, to adopt the language of threat would, in bis opinion, be meaningless and undignified. The Irish people at the present hour were called upon to face a more serious complication of circumstances than they had ever had to face before in their history, and therefore, he repeated, there was greater necessity for wisdom, judgment, calmness, and courage. (Applause.) After Mr. Gladstone's speech in Leeds, it was apparent to any ordinary intelligence that any species of tyranny was possible in Ireland, Mr.

Gladstone appealed to the prejudices of the English people, and he knew right well that that was a safe card to play when dealing with the Irish question. He vilhfied in most unbecoming language the Irish leader, and he shamefully misrepresented the Irish representatives. He told his hearers in Leeds that for the first time in history a party bad arisen in Ireland pledged to the doctrine of public (efaanie.) It ill became Mr. Gladstone to speak of public plunder. (A voice, Three cheers for Gladstone cries of "Order" and He should have remembered that he was more responsible than any an living for the public plunder which was taking place in Ireland.

Mr. Gladstone had invariably.
