Jacob Caspar , and resolved : " That this Society cannot entertain any communication from the journeymen with respect to an advance of wages * until the whole of tho employers in the town and vicinity of Manchester are brought to coincide with us in paying-to the present price list ; after which we have not the ) least objection to listen to any grievance they wish to make known , and to give such grievance cur best consideration ; and whatever a majority of the employers shall decide upon shall be binding upon the whole . " Moved by Mr . Joseph Levy , seconded by Mr . S . Marks , and resolved : " ¦ That this Society has na wish . to oppress their workmen ; but view with regret this attempt of the journeymen to impose a higher rate of wa&es upon us , while there are one half of the employers in the town in competition with us , who are not paying men so much as the present Price List , and of which fact they take no notice . " Moved by Mr . M , Lipman , seconded by Mr . C .

" Proposed by Mr . Joel Caspar , seconded by Mr . L . Lewis , and resolved :, " That all the masters' names who compose this .

FRANCE . . Pbosecotios tor ^ Blashhemt . —The Priests are again making desperate efforts to recover that horrible supremacy vrrested from them by the Great evolution . We announced in oar last the condemnation and sentence of M . Miphel for blasphemy , " the following additional snd interesting partioniaxs are ^ applied by the correspondent of the Dispatch —The Court Ass ^ Z 9 for the Department of the Seine las just condemned M . Toussaint Michel to six jconihs' imprisonment and a fine of 2 , 000 francs , t « £ 80 ) , forhaving written and published a work entitled u Condncite de 3 Religions Prefcendues Bevel « es , C The Decline of Religions Pretending to be revealed" ) . The Barrister who defended M .
Michel entered into 3 long disquisition to prove the tmth of the anther's propositions , and quoted passages from the Bible and Koran for the purpose of showing that these "works are repugnant to common sense and common decency . The Judges and Jury listened with great attention to this speech , which occupied several honrsindelivery , and did not once attempt to interrupt the mode of reasoning adopted by the Learned Counsel . This religious prosecution is , I believe , the first undertaken since the revolution of 183 & ; and was probably allowed in order to propitiate the Clergy , whose virulence against the tJaiversity daily gains ground . Whether it be wise or just to prosecute and punish a man for Mb reliidoBs opinions need not be argued in the nineteenth
century ; bnt this I may . mention , that such a process must ie pre-eminently absurd in a country where the works of Toltaire , Bayle , Yolney , and tfce thousand and one anti-religious writings are far more common than Bibles and Prayer-books , it is considered no disgrace for those works to be seen upon drawing-room tables in France ; and no library , public or private , would be deemed complete without them . Some years ago there died in the south of Prance , at a very advanced age , a priest of the ztam « of Jean Messlier ; and upon his will being opened , it was discovered thai he bad written a book against the Christian religion , which he desired might be Immediately published . This book concludes wth an apology for having , for bo many years , preached a creed in which its author did aot believe ,
and expresses a hope " that God would forgive him for having aided in the propogarion of a system at Tarianee with the eternal omnipotence , omniscience , said mercy . " This work was published ; and there IB not a man in France who can read that has cot read it . 2 ^ o means are adopted to suppress the fale of this and similar books , but they are actually to be found in the Royal library and that of the University—libraries of public resort for literary jnen , like that of the British Museum in England . To prosecute then , a man for his religious opinions , in the face of fac » 3 like these , is a most monstrous proceeding , and one ( amongst innumerable others ) indicative of a desire on the part of the King to return to the old tyrannies which , it was hoped , the Involution of 1830 had abolished for ever .
Lotus Phillippb jlss the Absv . —The Commerce states that near three hundred non-commissiODed officers and privates of the 70 ih Regiment of the JAne have been dragged to Algeria , in const qaence of the mysterious affair which has lately occurred in the Paris garrison . Tax os INiWiPAPKBs , —A proposition presented Jo the Chamber of Deputies , for the abolition of the tax upon newspapers , bad been authorized bj six out of the nine bureaus into which the Chamber is divided , and in the others the majorities in lavour of the tax were very * malL The abolition of the tax ¦ was warmly supported by M . Dupin and M . Lamariine , It is not expected that the Cabinet will give up the newspaper tax , notwithstanding the strong party in its favour in the Chamber .- Jt yields a large amonnt of revenue lo the Treasuiy , and this the Ministry are unwilling to surrender . Tae subject will excite a serious discussion in the Chamber .
SPAIN . MXRCH OP . B . OXUJT AXD pBIBSTCftlTT . —BlOOD 3 Blood I—The Madrid papers of the 17 ih f costatn as usual some fresh tales of horror . At Alicant on the J 2 ih and 13 th , three civilians were shot ; and Senor Garrido , Secretary to the Political Chief , on being identified , was to undergo the same fate , for remain ing at A ' -icant during the insurrection . A Barcelona journal of the 17 th announces that a new conspiracy had been discovered in that city , and tlat the persons suspected of being engaged in It were to be tried by a court-martial , then sitting in the citadel . A letter adds that four had been capitally convicted and shot . Two other executions had taken place at Zimora .
Th&JIeraHa , a Madrid paper , publishes the following atrocious order of the day , issued on the 4 th at Denasal , by tae Commandant-General of the Qaeea ' s troops in the Maeztrasgo : — "Any individual thai shall be seized and coniicted on eTidenee , however slight , of having attempted to induce a soldier or inhabitant to join the factious , ehaU be shot . Shall also be- shot any soldier that shall be found communicating with persons hostile to the Government of the Queen ( whom God save !) and that shall be known to wish to join the ^ ntmy . Before he suffers death , his tffenca shall undergo a summary inquiry of not more than two hours , and be sb&Yl be allowed but three hoars to prepare to die as a Christian . " - CiMTrnc-sk . —There are no later accounts from
Carthagena , bnt it appears that the insurgent regiment of Barcelona , six hundred of the men of which were sent as prisoners to Carthagena on account of the part they took in the disturbances at Barcelona , sndwho at once joined the insurgents at Carthagena , are determined to hold out to the last . They know that this , their second escapade , leaves liula ho « es of mercy , and they are determined to sell their lives &s dearly as possible . They are described as being completely masters of the place , and as having abundance of provisions and ammunition at their disposal .
Aijcasz . —Carreras , who was vice-president of the Alicant-junta , got -off , with his two sonB , on board a "French man-of-war . Carsi , another of the leading insurgents , has escaped on board of a foreign vessel , of what nation is not stated . It appears that the unfortunate Bonet tried to make his escape on the 24 th of February , when he went on board the English corvette , Scoot , to claim a refuge , accompanied by an officer ; but the commander of the Scout , Mr . Drummond , having refused to see them , they were obliged to return to Alicant Such cold-blooded inhumanity is a disgrace to the Jinglish name . The French . naval officer on tht other hand received several of the unhappy refugees on board his ship , and placed them in safety at Poii Yendres .
letters from Madrid of the ISth , state that the butcheries still eonuaned in tbeproTiace of Alicante ] where no less than thirty-fife persons had already been shot , without even the semblance of a trial , and sixty-five more wer » doomed to undergo the same fate . General Roncali writes from his head-quarters , before Carthagena , on the 15 ib ,-thavthe rebels were making strenuous endeavours to maintain themselves in the place , and that he was awaiting the armal of the siege artillery to attack it . A Carlist conspiracy is said to hare been discovered by the authorities at Tafalla , and to have been promptly suppressed , bat none of the particulars are ffven . POLAND .

This decision of our ^ Government has caused general joy here . The Communists who have latterly come from Poland , and been here In the eitadel , are already oonveyed , partly to Magdeburg , and partly to Stettin . The recal of Prince Paskewitech and theappoint- ) xneht of Prince Czonitschiff as his successor , causes a j great sensation here , because it gives reason toapprevi hend further rigorous measures in Poland , the recal of the -Field-Marshal being attributed to his too great forbearance .

According to another journal ( the Cologne Gazette J , the Circasuana have received large supplies of arms and ammunition from England ; and this circumstance is said to have caused great irritation in the mind of-the JEWeror of Russia , and led to remonstrances to the English Government . This infraction of the laws of nations , as it is called , is spoken of is the official papers with great bitterness . SWEDEN AND NORWAY . Stockholm , Makch 12 . —On Saturday , at nine o ' clock in the forenoon , the heralds ; accompanied by a detachment of the Horse-guards , read , in the principal market-place of the city , the following proclamation j—
M , Oscar , by the grace of God , King of Norway and Sweden , and of the Goths and Vandals , announoe by these presents : —It having pleased the Almighty , yesterday afternooo , at half-past three o ' clock , to call away , bv a tranquil and happy death , his Majrsty Charles John XIV ., King of Sweden and Norway , and of the Goihs and Vandals , wo have , therefore , by virtue of the Constitution , entered " on the government of the kingdom , as King of Norway , Sweden , fco ., and we are assured that all the inhabitants of the kingdom will , with all loyalty , obedience , and seal , obey us as their rightful King , and faithfully perform all their duties as subjects ; " OSCAR . *• Palace at Stockholm , 9 ih March , 1844 . " Wherever his Majesty appeared , he was received by the people with the most unequivocal marks of affection and attachment . The marine has also taken the oath of allegiance .
GREECE . Atjws , March 5 . —Yesterday the " great fact " of Greece was accomplished . The 107 articles of the Constitution , read for the last time in the National Assembly in the morning , were presented to the King at night , and received with a gracious and benuing speech . In a few days it will be returned with his Majesty ' s amendments . It is believed he will make few , and indeed uone , in those articles which secure the national freedom . The discussions have all been conducted openly . The countenances of the members are those of men undoubtedly earnest in their business , many open and manly , and many astute , a few sunburnt faces of simple gravity , and almost all characterised by the
bri « ht eye , and that union of vivacity with patient tranquillity , eo peculiar to the Greeks . They are men of all ages , from the President , 104 years old , downwards to the lately returned student from Europe , and of all costHroes , bat chitfly wearing the Greek cap and Greek dress . Some are covered with gold and silver embroidery ; some seem to have stepped out of the French or English Opera House ; others a , gain wear the shaggy cap » te ol shepherd or pahkar . What is extraordinary , all speak with ease , and withont hesitation ; and , probably , the few honest sentences of th » uneducated , urged with strong feeling and shrewd mother-wit , have been as eloquent as the harangnes of the several rtfined orators of the Assembly . On the final clause being carried , the whole Assembly rose , as well as the spectators , with shouts and vivas . The wild Palikar Grivas , who 13 still more of a Condottiero than a Senator ( but a fine man , and
splendidly dressed ) , begged his brother members to pardon any rude or unkind remarks , and that all that might have given offence or pain in the assembly should be forge tten in the moment of triumph . The feeling seemed roused , as by the electric-shock , in every breast ; embraces , hand-shakings , smiles , and tears of joy , were to be seen on all sides ; ladies it J 3 said ( it were more wertfcy to call ihem women of Athens ) kissed the hands of Kelergi as they passed out , as the representative of that garrison which had not only been a main instrument for recovering the birthright of their husbands and brothere , but the means of preserving peace to themselves , ana defending that assembly which was to transmit these blessings to their children . The populace paraded the town in ihe evening with music , going to the palace and the houses of many members of the senate , and the night passed in hilarity , without the slightest breach of order .
The following are the most important of the ? articles of the Constitution , according to the corrtB- pODdent of the Morning Chronicle . The established ; religion is that of the Orthodox Eastern Church of ; Christ . The free exercise of all other acknowledged 1 religions is permitted , but without proselytism . All j Greeks are t ^ ual in the eye of the law . and subject i to taxation according to their means . Greek citizens < alone are eligible for all public employments , civil j and military .

Depntiea to receive 250 drachmas ( £ 9 ) a month , should tbey be pleased to demand it , but only during the session . The members of the Geronsia , or senate , named by the Kin , * and council for life . He must nominate 27 , and may extend the number to 40 ; and still further with consent of both Chambers . Qualifications
as for Deputies , and also that they must be forty years of age , have fulfilled one of certain civil or military offices . They may receive on demand , 500 drachmas a month ( £ 18 ) during the sessions . The president named by the King . Princes of the blood become senators of right . Ministers raay or may not , be members of either house , have the right of being present , and must be so on the demand of either .

Trial by jury preserved ( it now only applies to the criminal case .- ) , and extended to political cases and the press . Ko foreign army can bs received into the King ' s service , or remain in or pass through the kingdom . The correspondent of the Chronicle ^ cur iously enough , says nothing about the qualification for volers ^ the most important of all
considerations . The Malta Mail , of the 15 : h , announces 'Hat the King signed the constitution on the 11 th .
UNITED SEATE 3 . The packet-ship Oxford , arrived at Liverpool , on Friday , with letters and papera Jrom New York of the 2 nd inst . They bring no political news of interest . The discussion upon the Oregon territority wasEtill proceeding in the Senate , but it excited very little attention . The cegociations which had been opened upon the Bame subject' between Mr . Pakicgham , the British Minister , and the late Secretary of State , Mr . Upshur , will be proceeded with as soon as a successor to the latter gentleman shall have been appointed .
! The O&EeoN . —According to the Netp York Heraid , the war feeling against England is at its very lowest ebb , and it will be difficult to raids it from the " vasty deep . " Whigs , northern Abolitionists , and southern Nullifiera are all for peace , on fair and reasonable terms , and they , all together , outnumber in influence the Ben ton ultra section . The singular rise of a deep commercial excitement , caused by the recent rapid advance in stocks , cotton , and other staples , and the increase of the foreign trade , will all contribute to repress political agitation of a character injurious to peace and prosperity . Slateby . —The House of Representatives , after cancelling on the 28 th their twenty-fifth rule , which recorded the refusal of the Boose to receive any abolition petitions or notices , by a straoge act of inconsistency reinstated the said rule on the roll of the House on the day following . This Email step towards liberal action is thus quiokly retraced .

In the House of Assembly a Bill to amend the import duties had been also introduced , and read a third time and passed . A Bill had been also introduced , and read a Beoond time , to incorporate the Koyal Agricultural Society of the island . Capt . Duling moved for a grant of £ 300 tor the Society . After considerable discuss-on the sum was ultimately reduced to £ 200 , and carried . Another Bill had been preButed to make tenders in silver coin legal to a certain amount .

COAL MINERS' CONFERENCE . The Delegates from the various Coal Oiatticta In England , Scotland , and Wales anembied fa tfa > Meebanicfi ' Hall , Tontine Close , Trongate , Glasgow , on Monday , th « 25 lh of March , at ten o ' clock in the forenoon . The attendance of Delegates was much larger thftn was expected ; and we are happy to state that from the reports given in , the Auoolation Is In a prosperous condition . The increase of members since the Manchester Conference , as given in up to the close of the meeting on Monday night , was 23 , 674 . At ten o ' clock , the hour appointed' for commencing business , Mr . George Harrison mov « d , and Mr . John Berry seconded , •» That Mr . H . Birnall , President of the Executive Committee , do preside over the deliberations of this Conference . " The resolution was carried unanimously .
Mr . Birnall * aid they had conferred upon him a gttat honour , in fact , the greatest that was ever conferred upon him In the whole course ot his life ,, by electing him chairman of that Conference ; and ha hoped that they woul < t conduct their deliberations in such a manner as would reflect credit upon themselves , aDd redound to th « benefit of the great movement in which they were all engaged ; and if , during their sitting , any question should arise that was hurtful to the feelings of any individual , or individuals ,. he hoped that they would manifest that charitable feeling towards each other which was to ba expected from men assembled together for the purpose of forwarding the cause of the oppressed Miners of the country . Mr . Berry moved , and Mr . Richardson seconded , "That Mr . Wood worth be appointed Tice-President . " Carried . Mr . Stoker was appointed door-keeper .
A lengthy discussion ensued on the propriety of allowing the publio to be present On being put to the vote , the majority was declared to be in favour of the public beiug admitted , without charge of admission . One of the Lancashire Delegates stated that owing to the naues of the parties moving resolutions , and taking part in the debates at tbe Manchester Co&fer&sce , being made public in the newspapers , the masters bad persecuted the men , and in some instances had tamed them from their employment . This was corroborated by a Delegate from the same county ; when tbe Conference came to the unanimous decision that the names of the Delegates should not be published . The Delegate from Dalketth moved " That no person or persons be allowed to take part in the proceedings of this Conference who is not a legally appointed Delegate . " . .... ..
The motloB was seconded by one of the Lancashire Delegates ; « nd , after considerable discussion , was adopted by & considerable majority-Mr . Dixon handed a letter to the Chairman from the Coal Miners of Cborley , announcing tbat they bad duly elected him ( Mr . Dixon ) as their representative to the Conference . He ( Mr . D . ) not being a member of the Association , requested , through the Chair , tbe opinion of the Conference as to whether he could be allowed to act in the capacity of Delegate , or not ? Tiie decision was tbat ho could not Mr . Dixon then handed over his letter to Mr . Berry , who represented the adjoining district , in order that the Chorley men mi ^ ht not be without a representative in ike Conference .
The next question brought before the Delegates was , the propriety of having public lecturos on the evenings during the sUtiims of the Conference 1 when it was tiecided that Mr . Dixon should deliver a lecture on " Tuo Grievances of the English Miners , " on tbe evening ol Tuesday , March 26 th . at eight o ' clock ; and Mr . Clougban , on The Grievances of the Scotch Miners , " on the evening of Wednesday , March 27 th , at eight o ' clock . Considerable discussion took place on the question of the hours the Conference should sit each day , which finally terminated in a resolution that tKe Conference mtet each morning at nine o ' cloik , and a ^ j uurn at one for dinnnbt ; raassemble at two and sit until six in the e ? ennz .
Mr . Roberts , suggested that a committee should be appointed to examine and consolidate the resolutions in tbe programme . He thought that it would facilitate tbe business of the Conference to a very great extent . At this part of the proceedings some one called upon the Secretary to read tbe resolution which was passed tbat no one should be allowed to take part in the proceedings but delegates ( in order to prevent Mr . Roberts frem speaking ) : this called forth some warmth of expression from the men of Northumberland and Durham , and also from delegates from various other counties , on finding that tbat resolution was to be made
applicable to Mr . BoberJo , ss they bad always allowed Mr . Roberts to take part in their proceedings at other Conference * : and further there were many things in the programme in with which he was personally mixed up . Mr . Roberta said tbat he wished to interfere with them and their business as little as possible ; but he had received letters bom Mr . Duncombe and other members of the Hons « of Commons coEcernipg ft bill that was pending before that House , which would strike a serious blow at the Miners of tuts country . He considered it to be hlB duty to lay the particulars of that bill before tbat Conference— ttrtmendous
applause ) The Conference was then adjourned until two o'clock , with a rnne « t that Mr . Roberta woulU bring the subject of t ^ e Bill before the Conference the first thing after dinner . AFT 2 RN 00 N SITTIN « . At two o'clock the Chairman took bis seat , when Mr . Roberta said that some weeks ago , be learned that a Bill bad been brought into tbe House of Commons , to alter the law of master and workman . He received a copy of the Bill , ana on looking it over he thought that it would be an amendment upon the old law , inasmuch as it provided for tbe workmen the privilege of surnmoBing the miisteis for wages , fcc But a Bill brought into tbe House , and a Bill coming out of committee , was a very different thing . When a Bill was brought
into the House , it was the practice to Riake it appear as just as possible , nay even to bo in some measure generous . Such was the case with the one und < .-r consideration ; but as emended by the Committee , it was one that . struck at the liberties of tbe working classes . Mr . Roberta then distributed a number of printed copies ol the Bill amongst the Delegates , and prcceeeed to explain the clauses of , the Bill , In which be clearly showed that there was no provision made that the contract ehotild be a written one , but a verbal one depending ou tbe oath of any underloeker , viewer , foreman , or deputy . All th » t was necessary by this Bill . to secure the imprisonment of b mas , was that one of these individuate should swear that be had contracted with the master to sink a certain number ot yuds , or drive a shaft a certain length ; tnis was sufficient to drag the man from his family and send him to a dungeon .
The Conference requested that Mr . Roberts would draw up a petition to which the members of the Conference would attach their names , in order that it might be presented as their protest against the Bill . Mr . Roberts « aid that he would willingly do any thing that they requested him—( loud applause ) . Tbe Chair / nan then intinuted ibat ho had received a letter from the Miners of the Glasgow District , which tbe Secretary would read .

Thompson waa appointed door-keeper in the place Of Mr . Stoker . ^ - ¦ ,., ;¦ > The names of the delegates was then called over , and credentials received from , those delegates who bad ' arrived during the afternoon and evening of Monday . The number of paying members which the new delegates r epresented swelled the increase of members since the Manchester Conference in January last to thirty thousand . ; The minut&a of the previous matting waa read and confirmed .
Mr . Hunter rose to move a protest against an infamous hand-bill which had been read at the close of the last meeting , and circulated with the intention of injuring their esteemed friend W . P . Roberts , E « q . Hia object in doing so was to let the anonymous author know , that so loig aa Mr . Roberts conducted-himself in the manner that he had hitherto done , the Miners would not allow any person to injure htm with impunity . The following is the Bill complained of : — " Miners ' Look Sharp!—Mineks , —An attempt is now being wade to connect your movement on behalf of your trade with the political proceedings to be adopted-to-night at a meetii .-g of Chartists , at which
Messrs . Roberts and Seesley ( ostensibly of your body ) , are to be present . Although it may not bo apparent to you at present , nevertheless the attempt will be wade , and its object ia to assimilate the Miners' Association with the Chartist body , so that the Government may be enabled to exercise tbe powers of the Auti Combinaation Aot , and by litigation find employment for a certain Solicitor , who whilst receiving your money may ha enabled to work out the plans of his patron Fears us O'Connor . A Friend advises you to take care . " Tbe motion , at the request of Mr . Roberts , was wittulr&wn , —considering that the best way the Conference could uct was to beat it and it author with
contempt . ; Mr Roberts was called upon by the delegates to read tbe petition against the bill now pending before the House of Commons , which , the Conference bad requested him to prepare . Mr . Roberts said that in the petition which he bad prepared he bad not embodied bis own feelings upon the subject , Kufc considered only the welfare of the Miners' Association , stetrinjr clear of every thing iu the shape of politics . Mr . R . then read the petition
which was received with rapturous applause . Mr . Roberts said tbat he hoped there would b& discussion on the subject * inasmuch as his object was to eiva them all the information in his power , and to make them bo well acquainted with the law tbat they might act for themselves without the assistance of a lawyer . ' Mr . Claughan lead a clause from the 4 th Gao 4 th , from which it appeared that the Bill bufore Parliament was milder in its nature than the one referred to , inasmuch aaib only inflicted two mouths imprisonment , whilst the old one inflicted three months .
Mr . Roberts said that was just what he liked . By this discusfcion thby would b « enabled to txamine tbe merits of the two act ? . ¦ Mr . Roberts then went into an elaborate examination of the two Bills , and proved tbat the old one was fur preferable to the new one . Mr . Harrison moved , " That the petition just read be adopted by the Conference , and tbat each delegate put bia name t « it , with his place of residence . "Agreed to . It was also agreed that tbe petition be printed , and that each delegate be provided with one or more copies to take to his constituent * . The Yorkshire delegates brought forward a resolution— " That a Committee be appointed , to be composed of five persons , to examine the organization of the Association , and to lay before the Conference the opinions of the various districts on a general strike , and further to audit the general accounts of the Association . " —Agreed to .
The following gentlemen were elected as the Committee : —Edward Richardson , George Mason , Mathew P&equel , David Maffet , Andrew Burt . Tbe next business waa tbe consideration of the second resolution on the programme , which was to tbe following effect : — " That any member laying a charge against any cfficial character ia the Miaers ' s Association , lay the same before the Executive Committee , so that the accuser and accused may receive justice . " After a very lengthy debate , which was not of much public interest , tbe following amendment was agreed to : — " Tbat any charge brought against any lecturer or general officer of this Association , be examined before the district meeting in which he may bo labouring or reside at the time ; and if found guilty to be suspended , but have the power of appeal to tbe next Conference , and tbe district to supply the accused party with money to take him to his home . "
Tbs Chairman then called tbe attention of the delegates to the third resolution on the programme— " Tbat nothing m the shape of resolutions or propositions be binding upon the meuib . ra , or be passed into a law , without it be carried by at least two-thirda of tbe payable members of the Association .

THORNbRO j NEAR WllITWlCK , LEICESTERSHIRE . —The most glorious out-dour meeting ef Miners belonging to the ; Whitwick and 3 cribs ton collieries , was held here on March 2 laz , to take into consideration the propriety of giving ia their notices to quit their employment at tbe expiration of one month , if their masters do nut accede to the list of prices which was drawn up and presented to them by the men the week before . Tbe advance sought for , on average , will enable the men ta earn about four shillings a day per eight hours : this they consider bo more than what is fair and reasonable , coaideriog the laborious nature of their employment , aud the imminent dangers to which they are constantly expostd , and this they do not hesitate is saying they are determined to ba ^ e before they res t satisfied . Robert Ho ire , a working man , was called to preside over the meeting . After a BQort but appropriate speech , he enquired if each
man was provided with his notice paper—( Cries of " Yes , yes . " ) Show them . ( A cloud of papers was held up , which wou'd have gladdened the heaijt of any paper dealer to behold . ) It was then agreed that each man at the close ot the meeting give in his notice , the meeting was addressed by Mr , James George , one of the authorised' agents , and a friend by the name of Mr . J S . Bower son . Mr . Palmer held a meeting at Peggs Green the- same afternoon , after the- meeting broke up the men went to their masters and gave in their notices , and the masters in return gave them notice p : tper 4 to leave their employment , and have since seut them notices to quit thbir houses . Restriction is here carried out with a vengeance ; the banks are now quite bared ; the carts and waggons are daily coming for coals , but ore obliged to return with ns many as they bring with them , aud Leicester market is about in as good * state .
Affray Among the Colliers at Ttnslet Park —On Tuesday John Booker , Charles Cutfs , John Taylor , Joseph ; Hardwicke . Richard Shaw , John Elliot , George j Pickering , Wm . Cox , Maty Anne Atkin , Emma Gibbins , Martha Hawley , Hannah Smith , Sarah Hopewell , and Lectico Hardwicfc , were brought before the magistrates at the Town Hall , Sheffield , charged in the warrant with assaulting Daniel Hajgh , David Ogden , George Brown , George Bosth , and others , on Thursday last , at the Peacock Colliery , Tynsley Park . The case excited the greatest interest ; tbe large Court Room being crowded by the Colliers and their friends ; there were also hundreds in the streets who were unable to obtain admission . Mr . Bratnley , towu clerk , and
Mr , Stamforth j appeared for the prosecution ; Mr . Palfrey man and Mr . Broom head'for the defence , Mr . Stamforth opened the case by reading the warrant , and entered into a short history of the strike , by which it appeared that the colliery had for some timo been working under assignees , who took objection to tho men being in the Union , and likewise resisted the restriction system ; the men turned out aud Were brought before the magistrates , but the bond or agreement not being valid , tho case was uismiesed . Since then several conferences have been held between Mr Higgitt , the manager , and the men , and by each giving way a little , the dispute was likely to terminate , but the men refused to pay for the timber
that was used ag props in the pit to keep the roof from falling in . During these negotiations , the manager had succeeded in getting a small number of men to work on the old terms . It appeared that on Thursday , a large body of two or three hundred persons , chiefly women , assembled at Attercltffe , and proceeded to the ] Peacock colliery . They bad a flag which was carried by Sarah Hopewell , but which on cross-examination , turned out to be a red handkerchief tied on the end of a stick , and John Booker had an old can lid , on which he was drumming with a stick , as a substitute for martial music . On their arrival , at the pit , they caused Alien , the enginotenter to draw the men out , and the women seized them and used them roughly . D . Haigh swore that
when he came to the top of the pit he had his pick over his shoulder , which was quickly taken from hint , and he was paid with it . lie could not tell who hod done it ; he thought it was the women . They got him down , and pulled his hair , and beat him with thoir fists , and nearly smothered him . ~ He was also struck on the side with a metal tram-rail : he called out ^ murder , " and they said if he did not stop that noise they would limb him ; he was then struck under the jaw with a large brick ; was insensible , and remained so for ft long time ; was under the care of a enrgeen , and unable to follow his work . On cross-examination he said he saw no men ; it was all women . David Ogden swore that when he was dr | iwn up , the women seized him by the hair and ears , and beat him on tho head with a stick , tben dragged him into a field , and tore alt tho clothes off him except his trousers . After beating him till they were tired , he made his escape to the
engme-house , where he found Daniel Haigh lying on his back , likewiso naked . George Booth , an underground labourer , detailed tho rough treatment he received , and exhibited the front part of his head , where all the hair \ had been completely torn up by the roots . Thirteen witnesses were examined , each detailing m a variety 0 ? ways the origin and progress ot the affray and identifying one or more of the prisoners as being ; present ; the solicitor for the ! dofence endeavouring to make it appear as merely a spree of the women ; and those ia the dock viewing it m tne same light , and eujoying with humour the various details of their mischievous pranks . A Mr . Hjggit , the manager being put into the box * Mr . raiueymancwasjabout entering into an examination to show that he jwas the occasion of the disturbance by unnecessarily keeping the men outi but was stopped by the Bench on the application of Mr iiramley . and not allowed to proceed . Mr . Palfrevman
then mud bj that decision he waa precluded from bringing w » y evidencee , and endeavoured to make it ftppwuc that it was meiely a woman ' s ** Bprte * for tan , and that the men had nothing to do with it ; that they were there merely as spectatorsj enjoying their ouriosity in the same manner as many strangers who were proud to be present ; The ffiagistrates , however , were vof a different- opinion , as eome of the witnesses swore tho men were making signals , and encouraging tho Woinen . They would therefore ; send the case to . tho Ponte&aofc sessions , but would admit them to baHr themselves in * 4 QandfcWQBuretfeB in £ 20 each ,-ifo husbandl tobe taken as suretieg for the married women , Mr Palfreyman protested against the amount of bail which was ultimately reduced to £ 20 and tw 0 Bure-
ties of £ 10 , each , which . was immediately put in , and the prisoners lioerated , much ^ to the joy of thefe friends . A rumour was afloat that : Mr . Roberts would be present , which caused a great deal ; of curiosity to see the man who has earned for himself such well-deserved popularity among the , working classes . He , however ,, was not present , although we believe he had been seat for , but was engaged elsewhere . . ; . " ¦ Millbriboe—The turn-out at the St . Helena Fir Hightown , has been brought to a ol # se , by the cozl owner giving the men an advance of 3 d . On Monday last he advanced them other 3 d . v J

The strike 13 now . brought to a close . A special meeting waa called on Saturday last to consider what was to bo done , when it was agreed to by all present , that the men that were standing out should go to the masters , and see what numbers they would take on .
I reason we have acted thus is , that so many men aept going in , one and two at a time , to work as black sheep ; tho reason being that suoporJ kept falling off week after week . We have now been oa strike fifteen waeks , and the utmost support we have received is but six shillings and threepence per man . Above one hundred men from other places hava taken our situations , and there is a large nimoar that the masters have refused to take on again These will have to be supported until they can get work elsewhere ; we therefore hope and truss that those who have supported us will not desert us in the hour of trouble . —By order of the Committee , Union Inn , Ivegate , Bradford .
