to complete the works, and it is expected that rapid progress will be made with them during the spring.
NORTHUMBERLAND. The pitmen in several parts of Northumberland and Darbam are still in a very unsettled state, and the coal owners are placed in a state of de. pendence upon their caprice. During the month a disturbance broke out at Waldridge colliery, and the inilitary were called out to quell it, but the pitmen, on their approach, disappeared. Lead miners have been brought to work at this colliery in the place of the refractory pitmen, and the military are now stationed in the neighbourhood to protect them. The conduct of the pitmen is severely condemned; for it appears that the price fixed upon by their own viewer, and the viewer of the coal owners, is such as to enable them, by Working a reasonable number of hours per day, to ear from 20s. to 30s, per week.
NOTTINGHAMSHIRE. The Special Commission has been concluded. George Beck, George Hearson, John Armstrong, Thomas Shelton, William Kitchen, and David
an. were placed at the bar. These prison. ers had been convicted of unlawfully destroy. ing a mill at Beeston. Charles Berkins, Va. lentine Marshall, and Thomas Whittaker, who stoord convicted of baving maliciously set fire to the house of John Musters, Esq. were also placed at the bar. The Learned Judge intimated that the lives of Kitchen, Thorman, Marshall, and Whit taker, would be spared. His Lordship then proceeded to pass the awful sentence of Death on Beck, Hearson, Armstrong, Shelton, and Berkins.
the old line to Preston Brook, and terminating at Warrington, there uniting with the Warrington and Newton Railway, and entering the Liverpool and Manchester line about half way between the last-named places. This arrangement, independent of the vast saving which will arise in the amount of capital required, was pointed out in the report as likely to be very advantageous to the proprietary, as it will afford a road to Manchester equally good with the one to Liverpool, which a direct line to Liverpool could not have done ; and as railways are projected and in execution from Manchester into Yorkshire, it is obvious it opens the projected line to the immense trade and transit of that district.
YORKSHIRE. W e are happy to find that rather an extensive system of educating the children of the poor hag been for a considerable time acted upon in some of our principal mannfactories. Amongst others, we learn that there are 120 boys and 70 girls receiving education as day scholars in school-rooms built for the purpose in the manufactory of Messrs. Marshall and Co., of Leeds, and that at 90 moderate an expense to the parents of the chil. dren as to be paid with the greates Another new school-room, attached to this establishment, is now fitting op, by which the number of scholars will be cousiderably increased, and their classification improved. There has also been a school for 4 considerable time, under excellent arrangement, in the mannfactory of Messrs. Hirst, Bramley, and Co. in School Close, and in the mill of Messrs. Hiudes and Derbam, in Dockstreet; the children employed in the manufactory are allowed stated intervals, both morning and afternoon, to receive instruction in reading, from a master engaged by the firm, who attends the whole day for that purpose. These are examples that are well worth imitating, and we should be glad to hear that the system of educating the factory children was in general operation in all the mills of the West Riding. It is alike honourable to the masters and advantageous to the scholars. It has long been a complaint, and not without foundation, that the children in manufactories bad no time, except on the Sunday, to receive instruction in the first elements of learning; but by the above means, this objection will be removed, and the moral babits of the children will be improved.
SCOTLAND, According to a statement drawn up by Dr. Cleland, the burials in Glasgow in 1831 were 6517, being no less than 1362 more than took place in 1830. The marriages have decreased 52.
SUSSEX. It is painful to reflect, says “The Brighton Herald," that the terrible examples made of per. soas convicted of the dreadful crime of arson, ap. pears to have little or no effect in checking the progress of incendiarism. Even while the Assizes were holding at Lewes, property to the amount of 30001. was consumed only a few miles distance. The Maidstone paper adds, “that on Thursday evening a fire took place at Ulcomb, near that town, which destroyed a large barn containing 170 quarters of agricultural produce. The execution of a man named Dixon took place on the same day, and within a few miles of the spot, which sbows what little dread the labourers bave of capital punishment.”
WARWICKSHIRE. A meeting of the subscribers to the Birmingham and Liverpool Railway Company has taken place at Birmingham, and the meeting, acting upon the previous resolutions of the Liverpool and Birining ham Company, decided that the Companies should be consolidated under the title of “The Grand Junction Railway Company,” giving an option to parties who are not disposed to continue in the consolidated Company of retiring, on receiving a dividend of the funds in band. From the Report of the Coinmittee, read at the meeting, we collected, that ad alteration of the line, as submitted to Parliament in the last session, has been de. cided upon, and that the Railway to be executed by the consolidated Company will pass from Birmingham np the valley of the Tame, thence along
The Cholera arrived at Nortb Shields by three different routes. On the 10th of December from Sunderland, on the 21st from Hartley, and on the 27th from Newca 27th from Newcastle. This pestilence, whose slow progress is one of its most remarkable phenomena, las now reached Kaddington and Tranent in the north, and Durham to the south. We cannot impress too strongly upon the local Boards of Health the necessity of providing hospitals for the reception of Cholera patients. It affords us much satisfaction to observe the arrangements which have been made in Edinburgh for the scientific investi. gation of the disease.
