On the removal of the cloth , the Seal was formally opened , when the accounts , < Scb ., of the Senate ( . for the past year ) were carefully examined , and gave to the members the utmost satisfaction .

Thomas Hargrave , Malt Shovel Inn , Armley , when upwards of 150 sat down to a real substantial dinner , furnished up in the first-rate style by Mr . and Mrs .

Joseph Haywood being called to the chair , the business being brought forward , it was stated in the report that the Lodge n * w numbered 168 free members , and that they had lost two daring the last year , one by death and the other for non-pay ment , and their funds had increased more the las year than in any former year for Borne time ; aftet which , the remainder of the evening was spent in a very friendly manner .

Mi C . of this Order is held in Wigan this year . The number of delegates assembled is 700 . In consequence of this meeting of the Brethren from all parts of the country , the Lodges in the district agreed to have a procession on Monday last . At two o ' clock the various Lodges had formed themselves in the Market-place , and after leaving thence paraded through the principal streets of the town , accompanied by bands of music , banners , &o . The procession was the largest ever seen in Wigau .
LOUGHBOBOUGH .-Tbe employer * of the starving stocking makera seem determined to drive them to dssperauon , for one of them , notwithstanding the low price at which they labour , has been attempting to advance their frame rent from ? d . to Is . ; Is . to Is . 6 d . ; and from 2 s . to 2 s . 6 d . per week , —some say , to pay the income tax . This led tjo their assembling at Sheepshead on Monday , and appointing a deputation to wait on one of the masters . They then came in a body to this place , to tbe number of 300 or 400 . The deputation got it deferred
for a month , but ) fc is understood that the pressera are to go in . So that those who had taken but at the advance rent will have nothing to do . The coming of these poor fellows was sufficient to alarm the conservators of tbe peace , for , notwithstanding we have ferty soldiers in the town , fourteen of the rural blae-bottles , with their commander at their head , arrived by the train and marched into the Red Lion yard . But the birds had flown , with the exception of a few stragglers ; so they had no use for their truncheons , nor had they an opportunity to show their valour .
STOCKPOBT . —The unfortunate poor of this once prosperous town are now eufferiug the extreme of human misery ; the streets are thronged with unwilling'idlers , whose woe-worn countenances speak volumes against the accursed system . The tales of distress that these men tell would draw a tear from the eye , or moisten the heart of any save an English griping capitalist . It has become quite common now for men to have two meals of oatmeal and water in forty-eight hours . The question invariably put from one of these poor fell owsto another is , "Well , Bill , when had you anything to eat last 1 " The answer in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred is , " Not sin yesterday morn , nor 1 munna have while night , and then it will be nought but a mess of water-porridge and salt . " On Friday last , a poor
man came iuto the house of your correspondent , who questioned him as to the reason of his being in such good spirits , as he had for two days previous noticed him being particularly dejected . He said it was owing to his having met a friend who gave him sixpence : this he hurried home with to a wife and three starving children ; he expended the money in bread and buttermilk , aud although neither he nor her had eaten anythi ng for two days previous , save "boiled potatce pillings ; " he could not think of tastiag himself , for , said he , with a sigh , " My days are to be few , and the fewer the better , for I would hail deatby this moment as a God-send ; " though he is quite a young man , who , twelvemonths ago , was receiving thirty shillings a week for spinning . What will be the end , God only knows .
HE xwOOP . —Tyranny of tiik Cotton Lords . —During the last few weeks , the millowners of ibis place have shown their sympathy for the working class by reducing their wages in some instances as much as fifteen or twenty per cent . ; and , not satisfied with this mode of robbing their hands , they compel them to take houses belonging to them ( the millocrats , ) and to pay higher rents than they otherwise would have to pay . There are instances in this village where young men , not married , have to pay rent for houses that they did not live in , having no furniture ; the house has been locked up empty , and the rent stopt out of the man ' s wages on the Friday night . They have now discovered another mode of screwing the money out of the pockets of the labourer : they ( the
millowners ) take a number of houses off persons who have no mills ; and , consequently , cannot get their houses tenanted , and force their bands into them , paying the owner of the houses Is . 6 d . and Is . 9 d . per week , and stopping their hauds 2 i . and 2 s . 9 d . for living in them . Having found out that what they stop in the shape of abatements may be recovered by law , they have in some mills in this village drawn up a document , which states that the hands are not to prosecute the master for any abatement or deductions he may make from their wages The poor hands have been compelled to Bign their names to this infamous document , or leave their employment ; and , knowing that there were hundreds out of employment , willing to get work upon any conditions , they have , with few exceptions , complied .
HUDDEBSFIEZiD . —A Runaw ay Bot . —On the 6 th of May last , James Graham , a boy about twelve years of age , ran away from his uncle's home , John Jessop , Paddock . He had on his working clothes as he left the mill . He stands about four feet two inches ; rather stout made ; a pleasant looking boy ; darkish hair . Any person having seen the boy , will confer a great favour on his friends by writing to Mr . John Jessop , Paddock , near
Huddersfield . To thb Public . ——Messrs . Wood and Co . ' s Weavers . Friends , —W « present you with this short address for the purpose of informing you that the strike against Messrs . Jacob Wood , William Norton ,. and Co . still continues . How long such a state of things is to remain depends upon , the disposition manifested by Messrs . Jacob Wood and Co . who up to the present time have shewn no inclination to settle so unpleasant a dispute . We have written to them to ascertain the price they really intend to give , but they refuse to furnish us with a statement , although we furnished them with the price we required them to give , therefore the only
course left for us to pursue is to request a continuance of support from our numerous friends , while they may rely upon the strike being conducted with that economy , vigour , and determination which has already characterised its proceeding . Not one of the turnouts has returned to the employment of Messrs . J . Wood and Co ., which speaks volumes for the justice of the cause ir which they are engaged , while a large number of the turn-outs have found employment at those manufacturers who are disposed to give us a helping hand , a course we strongly recommend to those who are inclined to benefit the trade upon which we depend for support . As the strike is likely to continue for an indefinite period , we hope our friends will make renewed exertions on behalf of the turn-outs , as we are determined to strain every nerve rather than
surrender one iota of the just cause in which we are engaged , for the manufacturers have repeatedly informed us that whatever wages the strike is settled at , the same wages will be the staudard throughout the West Riding . " If Messrs . J . Wood and Co . are disposed to give the same wages as the other manufacturers , the present dispute may be amicably settled , but if they are determined to encroach upon Iheir workmen a labour , and depreciate the value of the manufacturers' capital , they may expect determined opposition from your faithful servants , The Central Committee , George Franki ^ nd , David Armitage , John Smith . Committee Room , Woodsome Mill , May 17 , 1842 . P . S . The news from Bolton is highly gratifying , a 3 the weavers there are determined not to weave at a lower price than tho other manufacturers are giving in Yorkshire . -
BONtEY . —District Delegate Meeting . —The delegates , in addition to the local business of tbe district , voted thanks to Messrs . Duncombs and Leader for the noble manner in which they suppored the National Petition in the peop ! e s (?) House of Commons . TOPMOaDEN-Mr . Duffy , of Oldham , addressed an out-door meeting on Monday night , and gave great satisfaction . On Tuesday Afternoon , Mr . Tattersal of Burnley , and Mr . Duffy addressed the people of Todmorden in the Odd-Fellows' Hall . Mr . Tattersall ' s address was delivered in an eloquent and argumentative style , and went to the hearts of everyone in
the room ; he appealed to them on behalf of Frost , Williams , and Jones , and on behalf of suffering humanity , to come forward and help in the glorious struggle . Mr . Duffy gave the Whigs a humorous castigation ; he also gave Mother Church a lash of his satire . At the conclusion , a vote of condolence with Frost , Williams , and Jones , was carried unanimously . A vote of confident in Feargus O'Connor and the Chartist leaders was also carried unanimously . A vote of thanks were given to the lecturers and the Chairman , and three hearty cheers were given for the Charter , name and whole entire , and the vast assembly separated at seven o ' clock the fame evening . The ball that had been sot up for the
benefit of Frost , Williams , and Jones , Whig-made widows , commenced . There was a limited number of tickets , so that the large and spacious room of the Odd Fellows was nicely filled , and the evening ' s amusements consisted of dances , recitations . Bongs , &c . Mr . Duffy responded to the toast of '' Frost , Williams , and Jones , and may they soon return to tbe land of their birth , and enjoy the smiling countenances of their wives and families , " in an able manner . Mr . Tattersall responded to " the Charter , i ^ eoon b . e m&de a law , " in his usual eloquent Btjle . The evening's amusements were conducted in an ffioient manner , and gave great satisfaction .
FARNstEY . ——Visit of Mr . O'Connor . —Mr * O'Connor paid his long-expected yiBit to Barnsley on Saturday last . The meeting was announced to beheld in the Odd Fellows' Hall , at .. eight p ' olock , but long before that hour the approaches to the town from the railway were thronged with dense masses of the working men , anxiously awaiting the arrival of the champion of their rights . Mr . O'Connor however did not arrive until nine o'clock , \ yhenhia appearance was hailed with a tremendous cheer ; he looked in excellent health and spirits , and as ready to battle wi th tyranny as three years ? ago , when h « last visited Barnsley . The people now repaired to the hall which , which , in the course of a
few minutes , was densely filled ; and from the occasional interruption . of the door , we should say that a great number . could not gain admisssion . The extensive gallery was crowded by the fair supsorters of the Charter . One striking feature in the meeting was the large number of Mr . O'Connor ' s countrymen , who in this town are prominently characterised by their firm adherence to the good cause . Oh the motion of Mr . Mirfield , Mr . Vallanoe was called to the chair , who , after a few remarks , gave way for Mr . Mirfield to move the first resolution , which was as follows : — " That it is the opinion of this meeting that tho great distress at present pervading this once happy
country is the result of class legislation , and that there is no hope of redress for the industrious millions but in the People ' s Charter becoming the law of the land . " The resolution having been seconded , the chairman then introduced Mr * O'Cdnnor , who , on coming forward , was received with tha most enthusiaatio and tremendous cheers . Mr . O'Connor , after expressing the great pleasure he felt at again meeting his Barnsley friends , proceeded , in his usual forcible and eloquent manner , to comment upon the distress so widely existing at the present time—the causes of that distress-r-the quack remedies proposed by the present Government—and lastly , the measures that
must be adopted to save the nation from irretrievable ruin , and restore permanent happiness and prosperity to the industrious classes . Towards the conclusion of his addrees , Mr ; O'Connor alluded and replied to certain calumnies propagated against him in hia absence by Mr ; William Ashton , who has lately left Barnfeley for America . Mr . O'Contor's statements gave general satisfaction , andafter speaking an hour and a half , he sat down amidst the oft-repeated cheering of his delighted auditors . The first resolution was then put and carried unanimously . Mr . M . Segrave moved the Becond resolution—" That the sincere thanks'of this meeting are justly due , and hereby giyeii , to our unflinching advocate , Feargus O'Connor , Esq . ; for his strenuous exertions in the cause of freedom and the rights of industry ; and this meeting declares that ; Mr , O'Connor ' s character shall never be lessened in their
esteem by the slander of any paid or interested miscreant , be he whom he may . " Mr Eiieas Daly seconded the resolution . Mr . George Julian Harney , from Sheffield , spoke in its support ; and after a few words from Mr . Ward , it was put and carried by acclamation . Mr . James Noble moved the third resolution , which was seconded by Mr . Peter Hoey , and carried unanimously— "That the best thanks of this meeting are hereby given to the members of the late Convention , for ' , the unanimity of purpose which characterised their deliberations in their advocacy of the rights of the people .

TO THE PEOPLE OF YORKSHIRE . My Dear Friends , —I have just addressed the men of Nottingham in the Market Square ; and when I conclude my \ week ' s labour , I shall have addressed the people of Lancashire , Yorkshire , Warwick-8 hirej Leicestershire , Derbyshire , ( twice ) and Staffordshire , in seven days ; that is , I Bhall have travelled , at least , one-fourth of England within that time ; and as I was to have been at Huddersfield on Monday , I must really , from absolute inability , claim a week's rest , and postpone my visit to Yorkshire till Monday week . The fatigue of travelling , writing , conversing with working men , and the exhaustion consequent upon speaking , and remaining in
rooms hot as ovens for five or six hoars a day , is more than a steel man could endure at this season of the year ; and I have the vanity to believe that : my friends dojiot want to kill me . I mean to be in Huddersfield on Monday week , the 30 vh ; Halifax , Tuesday , 31 st ; Bradford , Wednesday , 1 st June ; Keighley , Thursday , 2 nd j Dewsbury , Friday : and Todmorden / or Hebden Bridge , ( the Association must arrange which , but being within two and a half miles of each other , both is too much ) on Saturday . On the following Monday , I place myself under the management of Beesley for North Lancashire , for four days or a week , if possible . ' i / . .. V : .. ¦'/¦/¦ ¦' . . ' ¦ ¦ " . . ¦¦ . . ' ; , V : ... : \/ " :
In the meantime , however , I am commissioned by the Chartists of Nottingham to say that they consider my presence , from next week till the close of the election , as indispensible ; and have requested of me most urgently to make an appeal to those places to which I stand pledged for leave of absence , until the | battle shall be fought here . You must know our exact position . Mr .-Sturge arrived here yesterday , and was met by upwards of 20 , 000 people , and upon mounting the platform in the midst of a deadand portentous silence , one of our Nottingham leaders , the brave Sweet , by order of the electors and noh-electors put the question to Mr . Sturge , "Will you vote for the Charter whole and entirei " and to which Mr . Sturge answered , " I
unequivo-CALLT PLEDGE MYSELF TO THE SUPPORT OF EVERY PRINCIPLE CONTAINED IN THE PeOM-e ' s CHARTER . " A vast number of Tories who doubted Mr . Sturge ' s real bbjeot in having adopted those principles , and who hoped for a laugh and triumph over Mr . Sturge and the Chartists , hung their heads , and grew pale , and sneaked off , amid Chartist cheers that rent the air . The question was put to- the Chartists of Leicester last night , in the Amphitheatre , whether or not Feargug O'Connor should go to NottiHgham to aid the Chartists in returning Mr . Sturge , when every hand was held up for going oh the mission , and not a single hand , of course , against it . . We must bear in mind that Nottingham struck the lasi blow at Whiggery ; and Nottkgham now aims the first blow at Toryism , Every working man in Nottingham , elector and non-elector , has pledged his adherence to the Six points of tho Charter , and to the support of Mr . Sturge . : ^
And now , my friends , just for a moment behold how my prophecy has been fulfilled . I have : told you a thousand times over that the existence of three parties in the state was incompatible with the existence of peace , law , and order , and that sooner or later the ;; fight between Chartism and Toi 7 ism would be sure to come , jbnt riot till intriguing was annihilated . Here , then , is the fulfilment of my prophecy in the present position of Nottingham . Here , then j is the odium of Toryism stripped from the back of Chartism , and here we find the battle between Toryism and Chartism ; and now the question is , whether any available aid , should be withheld from the men of Nottingham . ¦ ' ' " ; - . " ; . ";¦ . ¦ . ¦ . . y - . ¦ ' . ' ¦" ¦''¦ - : ; y
The mechanism , of elections the Chartists have hot been much accustomed to , while I have conducted more fiercely contested elections than any living man ; They consider the question as one of paramount importance ^ They do me : the honour to suppose that my continuous presence would go far to ensure success \ and will those to whom I am pledged for a single speech , and whom I shall vibU immediately after the victory is won—I ask , will they mar the prospect of success for the mere difference of time ! No , I cannot believe it ; and therefore it is that I and their friends of Nottingham make this appeal to those to whom I am pledged for leave to contribute my aid in the destruction of Toryism . Should they concur , they will forthwith write to me , addressed to Mr . John Cleave , 1 ; Shoelane , Fleet-street , London , as I must make arrangements accordingly . If I am allowed to remain at Nottingham , I will fearlessly pledge myself for
the result ; arid also to save our party some hundreds of pounds , to organise them , to keep the peace of the town , arid to return Mr . Sturge ; arid Bhould we succeed at Nottingham , we at once establish- the principles upon which the next general election is to be directed , namely , that the contest is to be between Chartism arid Toryism . Pray allow the honest non-electors of . Nottingham to have one unpaid agent on their behalf . I wish for early answers , as in the event of my remaining at Nottingham , I must make my own arrangements after my own fashion , while I feel convinced that the whole Deople of the town and neighbouring districts will hail with joy a compliance with their request which I now make in the joint names of Your faithfiil friend , Fjeargus O'CoNNoa , - And your anxious and devoted brethren , The Peoflb of Nottingham and District .
My Deab Fbiends .- 'I need say no more upon my own part , and upon the part of your brother Uiartista of Nottingham , than that compliance with we above joint request of Mr . O'Connor and the people will be hailed by thousands with joy ; while I have every reason to believe that it will ensure the triumph of our principlea . We pray your acquiesflence , acd await your answer with the greatest anxiety . ' I am , your frieud and fellow labourer , Jakes Sweet .

State of Trade . —Manchester . —The result bl the market yeterday was looked for with considerable anxiety by nearly all parties connected with the trade of this district—with the view of ascertaining whether the favourable appearances which presentad themselves the preceding week , would be in some degree realised , or the market would relapss into that state of gloottijdepresaion , and gradual declension of prices , which had marked its ¦ condition during the whole of the present year . We are glad to state , that , upon the whole , the result of yesterday ' s businesB was favourable ; thete ; waa no further attempts to beat down prices ; and spinners and manufacturers , who were willing to accept the rates previously current , were generally enabled to transact business with facility .
