THE NEWS BUDGET. New Licences.-By the Metropolis Local Manage- ment Act, passed at the end of the late Session, new licenses are to be granted from and after the lstNovem- ber next for slaughter-houses and also for cow-houses. No person is to keep cows without a licence obtained from the justices at a special sessions under a penalty of £ 5. Notice is to be given of the application, and tha vestry or district board may oppose the granting of the licence. The fee for a licence is not to exceed 5s. Fourteen days' notice of the intention to apply for a licence for a slaughter-house or for a cow-house is to be given to the vestry, and seven days' notice to the clerk of the justices of the intended application. Munificent Gift.—William Tite, Esq., M.P., served the office of Master of the Spectaclemakers'_ Company, during the past year, with general approbation for his urbanity and ability, and signalised his retirement from the office (in which he is succeeded by George Dollond, Esq.) by giving £1,000 to the charitable funds, to establish four pensions to the,widows of liverymen of the company. This is the third instance of the honourable member's kindness in connection with the City of London, as he had already founded two scholarships at the City School, and two studentships at St. Thomas's Hospital, by the presentation of even larger sums than the endow- ment in connection with the company, of which he has been a member for upwards of 35 years. Ci(iv Press. Fatal Mistake.-A lad, aged 17, son of a farmer named Laurent, at Vergeau (Yonne), met with his death, a few nights back, in a singular manner. He was amusing himself behind the hedge of another farmer, named Juventy, imitating the cry of the screech-owl. The presence cf that bird, it is well known, is legarded by the peasantry as an ill omen, and Juventyv hearing the cry, immediately fetched his gun, with the intention of shooting it. Seeing something white moving through the edge he fired, lodging the entire charge of the gun in the brea3t of the unfortunate lad. Some neighbours hastened to the spot, and, with the assistance of Juventy, carried the youth to the residence of his parents", where he shortly expired. On seeing Juventy, he was just able to say, You have killed me, but it was my fault." A letter from New York says:—" There has never been known in the Union such a fruit season as this. On every side walk are stands; in every corner grocery you will find pyramids of Bartlett pears, luscious peaches, purple plums, mountains of water-melons and cantelopes. Apples are countless, and grapes are given away. They are all cheap. A Jersey man, who came to the city expecting to get a good price for a load of pears, finding that he could not get one-twentieth of the price of last year, gave them all away." Fine Babies on Sale.—We have from New Orleans a curious correspondence about negro babies. It seems that the State of Louisiana has formerly been in the receipt of a very nice little revenue from the sale of all the negro children born of convicts in the State Prison. Some stupid Yankee has taken it into his head that raising human beings for sale in this way is wrong, and so he writes to General Butier asking his opinion. Uncle Ben tells him not to sell another Daby.-New York Tnbune. Drunkenness and Manslaughter. — About six o'clock on Wednesday evening a man named Edward Cullen, aged 82 years, living in Snn-yard, Smithy-street, Halifax, died of injuries received on Saturday noon at the hands of one John Hughes, an Irishman, about 21 years of age. Cullen was proceeding up Woolsbops, in that town, when Hughes, who was intoxicated and making a disturbance in the street, rushed at the old man, dealt him a fearful blow on the head, knocked him. down, and was proceeding to use further violence when some passers-by interfered. Hughes, at the time of giving the blow, was heard by the persons in the street to say, I have killed one man and served nine months, and will kiil another." Hughes, three or four years ago, was apprehended on a charge of murdering a man called Davis, of Halifax, by striking him a blow behind the head with a stone. There was some difficulty in making out a case of wilful murder, and he was sen- tenced to nine months' imprisoment for manslaughter. The prisoner is at large, the police authorities, who have a warrant against him, being unable to find him. The Great Northern Railway Accident at Offord.-The inquiry into the circumstances attending the death of John Johnson and Henry Lee, the un- fortunate engine-driver and fireman, by the late fatal accident on the Great Northern Railway, at Offerd, was resumed on Friday afternoon at that village by Mr. Mellor, coroner for the district. The jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death in both cases. The jury also recommended that in future, previously to a por- table steam-engine being placed on a railway, the fly- wheel should be taken off for the security of the public travelling on railways, and with the view of preventing similar accidents. The deceased engine-driver, John Johnson, was married, as -was also the fireman, Henry Lee, who has left a widow and two children. Mr. Bower, at the close of the inquest, liberally expressed himself, in commiseration of the widows, as willing to give £ 10 towards their relief. The viaduct branch line of the London, Chat- ham, and Dover Railway, from the Victoria station at Pimlico to the Elephant and Castle, calling at the inter- mediate stations at Battersea-park, Clapham, Brixton, Herne-hill, Camberwell, to the Elephant and Castle, was opened for general passenger traffic on Monday morning. At 8-20 the first train, consisting of one first- class, and two second-class, and one third-class carriages, with a full complement of passengers, left the Elephant and Castle station, amidst the shouts of those assembled, and completed the journey throughout, stopping at all thesta- tionsin the time allottEld bythecompany, the whole journey being completed in 25 minutes. At the same time the up-train left the Victoria station, the two trains passing each other midway. The trains from either end, both up and down, continued to run throughout the entire day, at intervals of 45 to 30 minutes in each hour, and will do so up to ten o'clock at night every day, accord- ing to the present arrangement throughout the entire month. Islington Reformatory. — On Thursday the foundation stone was laid of a new structure for the Islington Reformatory, in Copenhagen-street, by Sir J. Tyler, in the absence, from indisposition, of the Rev. Daniel Wilson, the vicar. Mr. Harvey and other gentle- men having addressed the meeting on the advantages the old establishment had conferred upon the district, and on the extended sphere of usefulness in store for the new one, the company were invited to inspect those portions of the building already erected, and which indicated that it was already considerably advanced towards completion. The main building is of brick, plain and substantial, 100 feet long by 40 fdet wide, and at an elevation of 36 feet, the basement being divided into a series of reformatory workshops, and the upper story into one large ragged school, capable of holding 400 children, there being al- ready 380 on the books. There are two playgrounds, and a separate building set apart for dining-rooms, dor- mitories, lavatories, and infirmaries. The architect is Mr. C. Higgins, and the builder Mr. Wheen. The esti- mated cost is £2,100, of which sum £1,300 is required to complete it. It is expected to be ready for occupation by the end of November. Deliberate Child Murder.—On Thursday an inquiry was held at the Duke's Head Tavern, High- street, Whitechapel, by Mr. John Humphreys, one of the Middlesex coroners, respecting the death of a female child, which was found murdered 'in that neighbourhood on Sunday morning last. Norah Buckley, the wife of a stevedor, said that on last Sunday morning she found the deceased in Blacksmith-court wrapped up in a news- paper. She handed it over to the police. Dr. Comley, divisional surgeon to the police, said that he found the deceased to be a remarkably fine child about two hours old. There was a mark of a blow on the right parietal bone, with a corresponding injury to the brain. There were also marks which showed that a person had appa- rently seized hold of its head with a firmness which com- pressed the side of the skull, and then pressed the wind- pe with the thumb and finger of the other hand. The umbilical cord was roughly torn, and was not secured. The lungs were fully inflated, and the child had unques- tionably been born alive, and died from the violence to the head. The jury returned a verdict of Wilful murder against some person or persons unknown." Another Child Murder.—On Friday morning Mr. John Humphreys, the coroner for Middlesex, held an inquest at the Lamb Tavern, Dorset-street, Com- mercial-road, Ratcliff, respecting the death of a newly born female child, found murdered under circumstances of a very brutal character. The jury proceeded to view the body, which was lying in one of the arches of the London and Blackwall Railway, and upon their return the following evidence was adduced: Robert Waters, a dock constable, said that he was on duty on Saturday morning last, about eleven o'clock, when he saw a bundle floating in the water of the Regent's Canal Docks, Rat- cliff. He obtained a hitcher and brought it ashore. He opened it, and found the body of deceased, which "was found wrapped in a piece of old blanket, a child's petticoat, and an old stocking. There was some- thing round the neck, and the body had been in I 'the water upwards of a week. He called an officer, who conveyed the body to the parish dead-house. Dr. Orton, the medical officer of the district, said that he was di- rected to see the body, which was that of a fine fully I developed child. He had no doubt whatever that the deceased had died from strangulation wilfully inflicted by some one. Mr. Pemble, the officer, said that the police had given the usual notices, and after the learned Coroner had summed up in a succinct manner, the Jury returned a verdict of Wilful Murder against some person or persons unknown." Suicide of a Lady.—An inquest was held at Hodgkinson's Hotel, Matlock Bath, on Thursday even- ing, on the body of Jemima Wheatcroft, Esq., the wife of Edward Wheatcroft, Esq., who had that morning committed suicide by throwing herself from off a bal- cony, some twenty feet high, into the River Derwent, which was behind her husband's house. From the medical and other evidence it appeared that deceased had been in a low desponding way for some time, and that she had frequently expressed her intention of destroying herself. On the Wednesday previous she had become unusually excited and wild, which caused her family great trouble and uneasiness. She was, however, got to bed, and as the evening wore on she became more quiet. The family retired to rest with their fears somewhat subsided. "On the husband awaking at the break of day, and not finding his wife in the room, an alarm was immediately raised, and a search was made for her through:ut the house; but not finding her there, a boat was procured, and, on proceeding down the river, the lifeless body of the poor woman was found floating on the surface some distance from the house. After a care- ful consideration of the facts, the jury returned a verdict That the deceased had drowned herself while suffering rom temporary insanity." Shocking Murder in France. — A frightful triple murder has just thrown the neighbolfrhood of Fos (Bouches-du-Rhone) into a state of consternation. Two Spanish workmen arrived a few days ago in the above- mentioned village, and took up their residence at an inn kept by a man named Leautaud. A neighbour, tempo- rarily driven from his own house by repairs going on there, also slept at the inn on that night, in addition to the wife and child of Leautaud. About three in the morning the two men got up and called the landlord, and on his appearing stabbed him several times in the breast, and, to make sure of their object, cut his throat from ear to ear. The wife of Leautaud hearing the noise, hastened to the assistance of her husband, and imme- diately shared his fate. Lastly, the child, who had followed its mother in its night-dress, was seized at the foot of the staircase and its head cut off. The neighbour, who had become aware of the horrible carnage which was going on, and knowing that his death was certain if he appeared, leaped from the first floor window, and hastened to give the alarm. Some courageous men re- paired to the scene of the crime, and arrived while the murderers were occupied in plundering the house; one was arrested;after a'short struggle, but the other made his escape by a back door. The description of the latter has been forwarded in all directions, and it is hoped that he will soon be in the hands of justice. Riot on Holborn-hill. — On Monday night, a large number of Irish labourers, who usually assemble against the hoarding between Field-lane and Victoria- street, got up a discussion upon the respective merits of Garibaldi and the Pope, upon which a fight took place between two of the opposing parties. The police endea- voured to make peace, but were shamefully assaulted by the adherents of the Pope. In self-defence the officers were obliged to draw their truncheons and send for a reinforcement. In the interim the rioters were joined by levies of young and old from Saffron-hill, and affairs began to assume a serious aspect, the police being greatly out-numbered by their opponents, who used their utmost efforts to crush the police, who, however, were assisted by some of the bystanders until a fresh body of police arrived, which soon turned the tables, and the police succeeded in capturing two of the ringleaders, but not without severe fighting and several of the Irish sustain- ing severe injuries. Capture of a Shark.—A gentleman writing from the Isle of Wight gives the following account of the capture of one of these monsters of the deep:—While sit- ting upon a rock last Friday, about two o'clock, p.m., I observed a large fish floundering in the sea, a short dis- tance from the shore. On bringing my telescope to bear upon it I descried a huge fin above water, and while still wondering what it'could be I saw it turn on its side, evidently to seize some prey, and this convinced me it was a shark, and a very large one, too. Hastily sum- moning some fishermen, we embarked in a boat, armed with a hook on an iron chain, baited with beef. This, on approaching the monster, we dragged behind us. He immediately seized it in his rapacious jaws,, and then-- well for us that we were powerful men, for his efforts to escape were fearful—he tried Vith his teeth to cut the chain; he almost turned his stomach inside out to dis- | gorge the hook, but in vain. The struggle lasted half | an hour, when, quite spent, he suffered" his head to be drawn above water, and confining his tail with a noose we drew him to shore, and dispatched him with great difficulty by beating him on the head. He measured 18 feet 4 inches, and from his enormous mouth, containiBg six rows of hard, flat, sharp-pointed teeth (of which I counted 120), and the total abstinence of spiracles, its skin rough, hard, and prickly, I judged it to be the cartharias vulgaris, or white shark, which is, according to Cuvier, sometimes found on the British coast. I wished to have preserved the skeleton, but found the next day, to my regret, that not having been properly secured, the huge mass had been washed out to sea. Desperate Attempt at Suicide by a Guards- man.-A singular and desperate case of suicide was attempted by a private of the Coldstream Guards, named Sayers, in Sale-street, Paddington, on Saturday night, under the subjoined circumstances. At half-past eleven o'clock on Saturday night Police-constable 75 D was attracted to a scene of uproar and excitement near a public-house in the above street, and found the soldier struggling in a semi-unconscious state in the arms of two civilians, who stated that they had been in his company in the course of the evening, and that he had just wil- fully swallowed some oxalic acid while under the influence cf liquor. The constable removed the wretched man, with assistance, to St. Mary's Hospital, near at hand, and his case being made known, four or five medical gentle- men of the hospital immediately attended on him and administered several emetics, which seemed to produce the desired results, and he was at once put to bed. In his conscious state he pulled out of his pocket a piece of paper labelled poison," which he said contained oxalic acid that he purchased with his last penny at the shop of Mr. Watts, Edgware-road, avowedly for the purpose of removing stains from his tunic, and instead of applying it in that way he took it by means of eating it up in its dry state. On Sunday it was ascertained that he was progressing favourably, and hopes are entertained of his recovery. Painful Occurrence. — An accident of a very painful description occurred at Frogmoor End, near Box- moor, on Sunday evening. A young woman named Elizabeth Rutland, aged 18, and a married woman named Elizabeth Stratton, aged 33, wife of a shepherd, fell into a lock of the Grand Junction Canal at Apsley Mills, and were both drowned. It appeared in the evi- dence given at the inquest on Tuesday, that the two women had both been to Frogmoor End Church. After the service, the girl, who was a domestic servant, wished the shepherd's wife to accompany her as far as the lock gates, which she would have to cross on her way home. The night was extremely dark, and it was raining hard at the time. The women proceeded together in the di- rection of the lock gates, and were never afterwards seen alive. In consequence of their not returning to their respective homes, the lock was dragged, and the bodies of both were found, one in the lock and the other just out of it. The lock was full of water, and two or three boats passed through it after the accident and before the bodies were discovered. Mrs. Stratton has left three children, the voungest only 13 months old The jury re- turned a verdict of Found drowned." Destruction of a Flock of Sheep.—By one of the most extraordinary accidents which it has ever been ou? lot to chronicle, Mr. George Peel, an extensive occupier of land and sheep farmer, residing at Wymering Farm, near Cosham, within a short distance of Ports- mouth, lost more than a hundred sheep on the afternoon of Saturday last. It would appear that, in a large field on the Horndean-road, about half a mile from Waterloo, there was a flock of about 500 sheep, the property of Mr. Peel, which were in charge of a shepherd named Francis Whitcher. This man states that he left the sheep all right about 12 o'clock a.m., and went over to Waterloo to get a paunch for his dog, which he took with him. About half-past two word was brought to Mr. Peel's house that the sheep were in a ditch; and on James Carter, another of Mr. Peel's shepherds, going to the field, he found a vast number of sheep jammed together in the ditch, and the others striving to force their way in. With great difficulty the sheep were driven back, and 70 were got out of the ditch alive, but 114 were found dead in the ditch. The ditch is about 40 feet long, 12 feet wide, and six feet deep, ard it would seem that one sheep having gone in, the others followed, till they were all jammed in and literally suffocated. The ditch was I perfectly dry. The carcasses were got out and carted to Mr. Peel's farmyard, where in a very few hours the progress of decomposition was apparent. The skins were removed, and the carcasses were sold to knackers and tallowchandlers. Mr. Peel's loss will amount to upwards of J6200. Among those suffocated were five valuable ranM, and many of the ewes were with lamb. Capt. D. Robertson, R.N., has been appointed by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution its assistant inspector of lifeboats. The fleet of lifeboats of the insti- tution having so largely increased, the appointment of an additional inspector had become indispensable. Capt. Robertson had previously filled the office of honorary secretary of two of the branches of the Lifeboat Society; he has therefore had considerable experience of the im- portant duties that will devolve on him. Steam Vessels for Peru.-In addition to the Morona and Pastoza, paddle steam vessels, of 500 tons and 150 horse-power, recently built at the premises of Messrs. Samuda, Millwall, and forwarded to Peru for the navigation of the river Amazon, two model iron steamers bave just been completed by the firm named for the Peruvian Republic; and as they are intended for the interior of the country, and will be required to steer in shallow creeks, each vessel is constructed to draw but 16 inches of water, being nearly similar to the steamer built for and now in the service of Dr. Livingstone. The iron plates of which these vessels are constructed have been p merely bolted together for the convenience of transit, and they will be rivetted on arriving at their destination. Murder near Tuam.-A most horrible tragedy was enacted on Sunday at the Weir Village, within about a mile and a half of Tuam, involving the sacrifice 0 human life under circumstances of a most revolting and unnatural character. An old man named Qualter, upwards of seventy years of age, quite blind and infirm, was found lying dead in his house, about three o'clock, p.m., with his skull fearfully fractured and several other marks upon his body, which leaves no doubt whatever of his having met an awful and violent death. An old hatchet stained with blood was found in the room near the corpse. Suspicion having strongly pointed to some of the immediate members of deceased's family who lived with him, and consisted of two sons, two daughters, and a daughter-in- law, the police arrested the whole party, who were brought into town and underwent a preliminary examina. tion before Mr. Redmond, R.M. Murder near Preston.-On Sunday evening a party of Irish harvest-men had been drinking at the Swan Inn, in the small town of Kirkham, about nine miles from Preston, and had got primed in liquor. At closing time the landlord, Mr. Henry Rawcliffe, requested them to go away, but they would not do so, and it was found necessary to call in a policeman. The men were then removed. Whilst they were in the street Mr. Raw- cliffe went to one of the room windows for the purpose of seeing how the police-officer was going on with the men. He was standing in front of the window, when one of the men observed him, and suddenly threw at him a heavv poker, which struck his forehead and penetrated the skull to the depth of four inches. Mr. Rawcliffe died soon afterwards, and, what is still more sad to relate, Mrs. Rawcliffe, when she became aware of the circumstance, was so terribly shocked that she died in about an hour after her husband. Three of the men !were taken into custody, brought before the Kirkham magistrates, and they were remanded for a few days. On Thursday Patrick Cain was charged before the magistrates with the above murder. Police-constable Fletcher stated that whilst he was endeavouring to apprehend some persons the prisoner got hold of him, evidently with the view of preventing him from discharging his duty. Eliza Fuller- ton said After the crowd had dispersed I saw the pri- soner with a female named Smith. He had a poker in one hand, similar to the one produced, and I heard him say, By the holy jabers, I will put the contents of what I have in my hand through Sergeant Lofthouse, or I will have the prisoner rescued." Afterwards, I saw the pri- soner standing in a corner, in the front of the Swan Inn. He had then a poker in his hand, and was alone. I soon afterwards heard a scream, as if from the Swan and, on going there, I found that Rawcliffe had been struck with a poker, which was protruding from his right eye. Witness stated that the prisoner had no coat on; and several other persons deposed that they saw a man without his coat in the neighbourhood of the Swan on Sunday night. Two witnesses, indeed, saw the person in question hurl something at one of the windows of the inn. The prisoner was remanded. Another man, named Kilbain, is in custody. Croydon Great Annual Stock Fair.-On Thursday this three-days' fair commenced with the sale of stock, sheep, and horses. It is one of the chief stock marts in the county of Surrey, and creates much interest among cattle owners and stock and horse dealers. The at- tendance was unusually large, and business was transacted as follows. Cattle-A large field of mixed stock was on sale; dairying cattle was in high request; well-bred, large-framed, short-ho-n cows sold at froir. X17 to JB21; and ditto to calve down, X15 to £18; Alderney and country-bred cows, in full profit, .Ell to £ 15; beasts in high condition (grass fatted), £ 17 to s823. Store Beasts-Devon steers, .Ell to £14, Sussex ditto, X14 to £15, and ditto oxen broke to the yoke, £40 to X44 the pair; Welsh bullocks, X9 to £10; ditto heifers, X6 to 98; well-bred short-born heifers, X8 to JE11; and ditto bullocks, zC12 to £16. Yearlings and lean cattle bad a slow trade at low figures. Sheep- Y oUDg sound Southdown ewes, 40s. to 44s. a head; broken-mouthed ewes, 29s. to 34s.; Dorset ewes, 32s. to 40s. Lambs-Choice bred wether lambs, 25s. to 26s.; ewe, ditto, 22s. to 24s.; and small stock lambs, 18s. to 21s. a head. Tups—Rams of good pedigree 3 to 6 guineas; and tup lambs, 5 to 7 guineas; nearly the whole of the sheep pens were cleared out by 12 o'clock. Horses-the largest show seen at this fair for many years; business was sluggish, and only best descriptions could obtain sale. Sound cart horses for town work fetched 30 to 40 guineas seasoned ditto, for agricultural purposes, 18 to 25 guineas; pro- mising cart colts, 24 to 30 guineas; horses for riding and drivipg, 18 tc 25 guineas; strong ditto for vans, &c., 18 to 28 guineas. Irish colts, handsome grown promising colts, 16 to 24 guineas; Welsh ponies, 4 to 7 guineas. The Supposed Matricide at Halifax.-The cause of the death of Betty Helliwell, whose lifeless body was found in a stone quarry at Soyland, near Halifax, formed the subject of an inquiry before a coroner's jury on Monday. William Helliwell, the son of the deceased, in custody on suspicion of having murdered the woman, was present during the investigation. The evidence showed that the body when discovered was in a shock- ingly mutilated condition, that there were several fearful external wounds, and that every bone was broken but it failed to bring home the crime to the suspected son. Several witnesses gave testimony supporting the proba- bility that the death of Mr. Helliwell was accidental, and that her fatal injuries were sustained by falling into the quarry on Thursday night, when on her way to the house of her daughter after a quarrel with her son. This assumption is corroborated by the fact that when her body was discovered there was lying near it a lantern, with a candle in it almost burnt out. The jury closed an inquiry extending over many hours by re- turning an open verdict, and the son was liberated from custody. Melancholy Suicide.—An inquest was held o* Tuesday, at Coventry, on the body of a young woman, named Agnes Coltman, who was found drowned in the Coventry Canal on the previous day. Mrs. Esther Colt- man deposed that the deceased was her daughter, and was seventeen years of age last birthday. On Sunday last, having reason to suspect that she was enceinte, wit- ness charged her with it, but she strenuously denied it. She seenwd in very low spirits, and after tea, while the witness was at a neighbour's, she called in to ask a little child to come and read the Bible to her, the deceased herself being unable to read. The deceased then returned to the house with the neighbour's little girl, and shortly afterwards, on the witness coming home, she found that her daughter had gone out, leaving word that she would be back in a few minutes. She did not return, however, and though the witness instituted every inquiry, she was unable to find her.. John Barton, labourer, said he was walking by th) canal side on Tuesday morning, when he picked up a bonnet, which he found under the hedge, and, suspecting that somebody was in the water, he pro- cured the drags and assisted in searching the canal. In a short time the body of the deceased was recovered. There were no marks of violence upon her person. The jury, having heard the evidence, returned a verdict of "Suicide while in a state of insanity." The Danger of playing with Firearms.—An accident of a melancholy character, and attended with loss of life has just taken place at Instow, near Bideford, and it affords another illustration of the danger resulting from the practice of keeping loaded fire-arms in dwell- ing-houses. On Friday last Mr. John Lock, of Instow, was about to go shooting for the day, and his gun-a loaded one-was taken down from its usual place over the chimney-piece, by John Folland, a young man in the employment of Mr. Lock. It appeared that Mr. Lock's son, George, a lad about 14 years of age, had re- turned to bis father's house from school on the previous night, and to this youngster Folland handed the loaded gun, although it is not stated whether he was aware of its dangerous character. A maid servant, Jane Madge by name, was standing on the doorway, and to her young Lock said be should like to shoot a bird. The girl spor- tively replied, "Shoot me." Without any further observation from any one, the lad raised the gun and fired at the girl, the charge entering her head and scattering her brains in many directions. Death was in- stantaneous. An inquest upon the body of the unfor- tunate young woman was held on Saturday, when evidence as to the case having been given, the jury returned a verdict in accordance with the facts as sworn to before them. The accident has create! a painful feeling in the neighbourhood.
