Thought irretrievably during that memorable operation while the latter have As surely lost the prestige they at that place acquired. Whatever be the cause it is certain that the turks have proved most wretched allies in the Crimea and that the russians have evinced a gallantly and efficiency far beyond our anticipations. It is highly satisfactory to learn that the weather continues Fine and the health of our troops at least As Good As can be expected under the circumstances in which they Are placed. They stand however in great need of reinforcements and we unhappy to find that More a to be sent at once. The times of wednesday says intended to Send to the Crimea one More battalion of the guards the 97th regiment from the warns the 6-nd from Gallipoli tile 34th from Malta the 71st from Corfu tile 82r.d from Edinburgh and the 90th from Ireland. There will to no difficulty we understand in obtaining the services of any amount of any militia that May be required to do Garrison duty in tile fortresses thus leu a garrisoned so that this very considerable reinforcement can be sent without running any or stripping the Empire of any of its necessary defences nor Are the Means wanting of supplying this great additional Drain on our the same paper adds that recruiting is proceeding at the rate of 1000 men per week. An Opportunity was afforded to our ministers last week at the civic banquet in Celebration of tile inauguration of the lord mayor to declare their sentiments on the War. Lord Aberdeen promised that nothing should he wanting on tile part of government to ensure its vigorous prosecution our comment upon which is a recital of the old proverb a a actions spank louder than lords Palmerston and John Russell were present but most unaccountably never uttered a syllable on the one subject that engrossed the National interest. A possible reason is assigned. As englishmen they disapprove of the Way in which the War has been mix conducted but As members of tile Aberdeen Cabinet they Are compelled to be silent. This May or May not be the Case but the omission of All reference to the greatest of National questions on a great Public occasion seems inexplicable Oil any other supposition. Public indignation Lins been rather violently excited against the greek merchants of Manchester on account of their unconcealed exultation at the powerful opposition offered by the russians to the Success of our in the Crimea and some of them have been rather roughly handled in consequence. A greek merchant writing to Tho times denies that the anti English feeling is at All general among the Community to which lie belongs. If it be it will be their Wisdom to Kulp it to themselves.

Is there any real meaning in the movement or is it intended As a Blind to the determination to a postpone As Long As risible parliamentary interference with a mis governing executive lower p weekly summary. The very full accounts of the Progress of the War which appear in our last Page Render unnecessary Bere anything beyond a Brief resume of the operations connected with the great event to which the eyes of Europe Are turned the siege of Sebastopol up to the latest dates of which communications have been received. Our readers will remember that the attack on Sebastopol was commenced in Good Earnest on the 17th of october and that from then to the 23rd, the latest Date of which we had Well authenticated information up to the time of last weeks publication the tiring was tremendous on both sides. We stated that reports had been received of an attack made by the russians upon the allies on the 25th, in which it was feared we had sustained a terrific loss. The full particulars of this melancholy affair have since been received and will tend hut Little to remove the depression occasioned by the first rumours that reached our ears. The turks behaved in a most cowardly manner and reports Are Rife of treachery among them. This much is certain they proved worse than useless Aud our cavalry the most essential part of our in the Crimea at present and at the same time that in which we Are most deficient were terribly Cut to pieces. The worst feature of the Slaughter is the fact which seems to be pretty clearly established though there is much of uncertainty about it that the disaster originated in a misunderstanding of orders and its results Are by no Means commensurate with Tho fearful expenditure of life it has entailed. It seems to be a general opinion that the English line is too extended and that to retain Balaklava at All will involve sacrifices for which we Are not at All prepared. On the following Day oct. 26the Garrison made a sortie but were repulsed with great loss. From this time up to the 5th of the present month we have no accounts or at Hest but imperfect ones. Nothing particular seems to have occurred. On that Day however another Battle took place the details of which Are wanting. Despatches relative to it have however been received from lord Raglan and general Canrobert in which the russian loss is estimated at 1 0,000. We await with intense interest the receipt of Fuller intelligence. _ one of the most striking acts connected with the siege of Sebastopol is the contrasted position in which it places the russians Aud turks As compared with that they respectively occupied at Silistria. The former have recovered the reputation they lost it was recent intelligence from the scat of War has a teared up much of the mystery attached to the telegraphic reports of the actions of the 25th and 26th of october and although the unfortunate loss of the Light cavalry has been a heavy one it has not been so great As was at first reported. Beyond this loss which resulted from a verbal order a course which we Trust our generals will eschew in future the allies suffered no material damage on these two Days while they inflicted a heavy loss upon the enemy. Tile events however of the 5th or 6th of november or there is some confusion in the dates have thrown into the Shade what by comparison were Mere skirmishes. We learn from the despatch of the French general that on one of the Days above named the allies were attacked by an immense Force of russians on the extreme right of their position occupied by our own Gallant Fellows while at the same time a sortie was made by the Garrison against that occupied by the French troops. The fighting continued All the Day Aud ended in both the attacks being signally Defeated the enemy suffering a loss of 10,000 men. That these successes have been purchased by serious losses on the part of the allies there can be Little doubt and although we feel assured that the troops Are equal to any service that May be required of them we conceive it to to the duty of our government to see that they Are not overpowered by numbers and that lord Raglan May not be placed in the situation of the Carthage Ian general who exclaimed a a another such a Victory and i am the question is a vital one a have the necessary measures been taken to reinforce our so that Tho successes it has so gloriously won May to turned to account ? when we consider the smallness of our contingent in the first instance about 30,000 men and take into consideration the losses in the Field and from disease it is very probable that before this last action our effective Force was under 20,000 men a number far too Small for the Success of the Enterprise which we have undertaken without overtaking the strength of both officers and men. Whatever May have been the shortcomings of the Czar he has at any rate shown no Lack of Energy in forwarding reinforcements and we would urge upon our own government the necessity in this particular of following the example of the enemy. If the War is Worth carrying on it is Worth carrying on with Vigour and the country will not satisfied unless something More worthy of its reputation be done than the Mere sending out detachments to Complete the regiments already on service. In an undertaking like the siege of Sebastopol the chief wanted is infantry. This can fortunately be supplied the militia throughout the country is fully equal to the Home service and we Trust therefore that no time will be lost in embodying this Force so As to set at Liberty the regular troops in Garrison both in this country and Ireland. A reinforcement worthy of th3 name May then be sent to the Crimea. It is related of the great lord Chatham that when in consultation with a general officer As to the number of men required for a certain service that when the latter stated that 10,000 would be sufficient ids rejoinder was a a take 20,000, and answer with your head for the Success of the it is in such a spirit that englishmen would wish the War to be conducted hut we fear we shall look in vain to the present administration for any such Energy except it be in words. Ave should have supposed Hail such a spirit animated the Aberdeen ministry that parliament would have immediately been assembled whereas it has been prorogued to the l Ith Decell of proof that the government is either not alive to the importance of the struggle in which we Are engaged or to at it is so tied Down by precedent As to wish to conduct the Public business As in a a the piping times of that Sebastopol will be eventually taken does not we apprehend admit of a doubt. The latest reliable intelligence is that the allies Are steadily though slowly advancing upon the fortifications. Tile condition of the besieged was such As would prevent tile russian general in command from offering any lengthened resistance. A Large portion of the town is in ruins the want of provisions is already announcing famine while the exhalations from the unburied corpses that encumber the streets Are engendering pestilence. It is further stated that feelings of discontent and disaffection were prevalent not Only among the inhabitants hut also among a portion of the Garrison. Under these circumstances and in the absence of any details of the action of the 5th or 6th, we Are inclined to View the proceedings of that sanguinary Day As the last attempt of the russian forces Iii the a Crimea to raise the siege. An apparently overwhelming Force was assembled and in order to excite the men to the highest degree the grand Dukes Constantine Anil Nicholas were present. The Long continued struggle shows Tho determination of the enemy which however availed not nor saved them from a terrible defeat which would in till probability he followed by the surrender of the place. In other quarters Thoro is in the present Asj Lect of affairs cause for deep dissatisfaction adopting the language of a contemporary a ave allude to the attitude which Austria has assumed. Of Prussia we say nothing. 8he is avowedly whatever May lie the sentiments of Lier people devoted to the interests of the Czar and to he looked upon As an enemy rather than us ii Neutral. But Austria had held out a Promise of better things. She professed to agree with the Western Powers touching tile causes of the War and Tho necessity of repelling Force by Force. She entered into tile plans of the allies and though preferring a position of tem Horary neutrality she sent Lier armies into tile Field for tile avowed purpose of aiding tile turks in tile expulsion of the russians from tile Danubia ii principalities. She can hardly claim tile credit of having driven tile russians out of them for this was accomplished by tile unaided gallantry of tile turks. But since their occupation by tile austrians tile principalities and tile turkish authorities in them have been subjected la treatment which Savours More of the conduct of ail invader and an oppressor than of a Friend and a ally. If Austria intended no More by that occupation than the maintenance of tile turkish Rule in aval Lachia Aud Moldavia there could be no occasion for the Check recently int by the austrians on the proposed movement of tile turkish into Bessarabia. If Austria were Bona fide Iii the interest of the Western Powers though she might not like to take a part herself in actual hostilities still she could not object to a diversion Iii favour of the operations of the allies in the Crimea being made by the of the Sultan. Tile existence of such an objection amounts to proof positive that Austria does not Wisla the armies of tile allies to be successful against Sebastopol.

The latter was admirably Given under the direction of its Arranger or. Alfred Nicholson and although Tho loyalty of the audience not so boisterously evince itself As on its first performance the silent yet unmistakable sign was not omitted the simultaneous uncovering which took place it the first note of our National Anthem showing How heartily All concurred Iii the spirit of its prayer.

Nicholson a a on Friday evening last the mein Liers of the Stamford musical Union gave their opening concert for the ensuing season when the Assembly room was crowded by a in Tahle audience. Having recently heard rather unfavourable reports relative to the management of the Union we were pre occupied somewhat unfavourably. Lint we wore glad to find the performers equal to Tho majority of provincial musicians indeed we May say that the entertainment from beginning to end gave us unmixed satisfaction. Or. Nicholson who has justly i in styled Tho Star of the provinces a executed the most difficult passages with the utmost ease and displayed perfect Mastery of his instrument. This gentleman is happily free from Tho contortions of countenance and posture in which some professionals indulge. None of these a signals a were Hung out by or. Nicholson to intimate that something very Complex was being executed the list of casualties at the Battle of Balaklava tells that Comet w. W. Hartopp of the first Dragoon guards and son of the esteemed Squire of Dalby Hall was wounded severely but we hear he is progressing As Well As can be expected considering that a Ball passed through his thigh. The Battle of following is from an officer who was engaged in this action to his friends in this county a a a constantinople october 29th. We had an affair with the russians at Balaklava on Tho morning of the 25th. Tho turks who were posted on a Chain of Hills Iii front of the town bolted directly they were attacked and gave tile russians Possession of one of the Hills where they posted their infantry while they sent their cavalry into the Plain where we were encamped. They charged Tho 93rd, who were drawn up in front of the town but they found themselves rather sold As they received such a peppering that when they got within Twenty Yards they bolted right Back Over the Hill. Another body then came up in column of squadrons and came right up to our lines where however they were met by the Greys who though about one to five of them turned them in less than a minute. Had we then been wheeled into line we should have utterly smashed them but instead of that a halt was sounded and they were allowed to go Over the Hill unmolested. The russians Wero Hussars very Well mounted. They Are dressed in a Long Grey coat on service and carry their jackets and Pelissey in their belts. The Greys had mauled them frightfully. There were heaps of their dead and dying about the ground whereas the Greys could not have lost above three or four men. I never saw such a scene of confusion. Regiments All mixed so that it was hard to find ones own corps men waving their swords and shouting utterly heedless of any order. Why it was All left to the Greys. I do not know but Linail they not been real Stout Fellows they must have been beaten. After Tho regiments had got together we advanced in double column of regiments to the Hill where we dismounted Tho russians being about one mile from us to our right. Suddenly we Wero ordered to move. We formed into double line. Tho Light brigade Iii front and the heavies covering them. We were then ordered to charge a Battery of russian artillery supported by infantry which must have been about on and a half Miles from us in the Advance to which we were exposed to musketry on our right and a Cross fire from four different batteries. The Light brigade went at a Gallop while we followed at a Trot. The mistake was soon found out. Tile shot Shell and Millie a fell As thick As Hail and seeing no Good could be gained we were ordered to retire. At this period of the action the writer received a wound from a Hall which passed through his thigh and lodged in his Saddle he goes on to say a a a the Light brigade continued their charge and were almost entirely Cut to pieces. The Only reason i hear heard assigned for this mad was that an aide Camp on general Aings staff was sent to Tell lord to Advance our guns instead of which he said Advance against the the poor fellow was shot about ten minutes afterwards so it is not known for locality of the number of the London journal published last week we find the following answer to a correspondent a a a Belvoir Castle the seat of lord forester is in the county of Salop a Rabbit steam Isaac Burdett was charged yesterday at the town Hall with stealing a Rabbit and three pigeons from an outhouse in Abbey Gate the property of Joseph Jeays. Prosecutor objected to be sworn on the ground that he not wish to persecute tile prisoner and Only consented to take the oath on being threatened with imprisonment for refusal. His evidence was to the effect Liat on wednesday morning lie found the place where he kept rabbits and pigeons had been broken open and three pigeons and a Rabbit taken therefrom. The Rabbit and two pigeons were Here produced which witness declared himself unable to identify they had belonged to his son and he knew nothing about . Rawson deposed Liat the prisoner offered to sell her two pigeons and a Rabbit which at first she refused to buy hut eventually gave him 3s. 6x1. For . Moore deposed to receiving the property from mrs. Rawson Aud having received a description of the prisoner went in search of him and succeeded in apprehending him at a Public House in Talbot Lane. On being charged he denied any knowledge of the affair and rebated the same before the witness however who was in mrs. Rawson shop at the time prisoner came to sell Tho property swore positively to his till to Day. Proposed r e Fok m Atory institution for adult criminals at Leicester. The Public mind is turning its attention to reformatory rather than retributive punishment and Many experiments Are in Progress the object of which is to Reform the criminal by training in the school or the family rather than by punishment in gaol. For criminal children several reformatory schools or places of educational detention Are already established. It remains to furnish adults with similar advantages and an institution of the kind has been for some years at work in Westminster under the name of a a the London colonial training institution for adult male the Large measure of Success which has attended its efforts proves that adults of every age Are open to reformation and May be induced to change their Mode of life if Only the Means be afforded them of gaining an honest livelihood. The establishment in Westminster is conducted in the humblest manner no one is admitted who does not voluntarily subject himself to a fortnights probation in Solitude upon a diet of bread and water and yet so great is the anxiety amongst the criminal class to Avail themselves of this assistance and so earnestly do they desire to adopt a better Mode of life that the governor or. Mash has the painful task of refusing admittance to As Many As eighty a week.

Sir a i am surrounded by extreme old age the rapid Advance of which is not merely matter of observation on those about me but is personally experienced. To this inevitable visitation of nature i Grieve to add the heavy calamity of various degrees of destitution. This Alliance becomes doubly formidable. No human strength can Long resist its combined Power. Without professing to have More than an Ordinary share of sympathy i am at times in Contact with privations and sufferings which excite painful Quot impressions and which i think would extort a sigh of compassion from the coldest hearts. Since my first residence under this roof i have seen instances where life has been abridged from want of suitable sustenance. I have seen this endured with quiet patience Stern fortitude and Calin resignation. In such instances the cup of death seems to be deprived of its bitterness and is accepted As the chalice of Hope Comfort and Consolation. I am not pleading my own Case. I Ain deeply grateful and anxious to acknowledge that with my Long continued habits of self denial and frugality All the necessaries and some of the comforts of life Are accessible. I Ani therefore contented. One of the most striking evidences of the encroachments of time on the human Frame is in the progressive diminishing Power it leaves of generating that element of life a animal heat. I find that a warmth of 65 of the thermometer to degree above temperate produces a sense of chilliness a few degrees lower it is actually cold and consequently requires additional artificial Means to Check the increased expenditure. The season is fast approaching which puts the aged and forlorn on their severest trials. The inordinate expenditure of life can Only lie checked by extraordinary Means Means that n stipend of three shillings a week affords no Power of acquiring. No offence can be taken no apology required to those in whose hearts the pulse of Christian Benevolence throbs when they Are solicited for a Supply of fuel body apparel Anil bed clothing of any cast off description which will be truly and gratefully acceptable. This would serve to mitigate the Stem Rigours of a severe Winter. One hint More. Our endowment is helped by a collection at the annual Sermon this even Iii the Best times never produced More than twopence a week last summer even with the munificent gifts of the Duke of Rutland and the Marquis of Granby it not quite reach three Halfpence. The Charity is open to All sects and parties without any distinction or partiality have we not some claim upon every sectarian congregation ? the ministers would cheerfully and Zeit loudly plead our Causa once a year Tho distribution being left to the deacons of the respective chapels. If this suggestion be embraced to Winch i can anticipate no objection no time need be lost. The first Sermon May commence on sunday the 19th instant and go on seriatim week by week As May Best suit the convenience of the respective ministers taking the order and arrangements into their hands. A weekly fund will be thus raised which will alleviate the sufferings of some and cheer the hearts of All the members of this ancient Charity. The Rev. J. In. Mursell is respectfully solicited to take the precedent in this Christian labour of love. Charity sermons usually commence with an appropriate text. My Short discourse must conclude with Oue. A a he that liveth to the poor leu Deth to the Geo. Bown. A Public meeting was held in Tho town Hall Market Harborough on wednesday evening november loth to adopt Means for the raising of subscriptions for the above fund. The meeting was a Large and highly influential one and amongst the number were several ladies. The meeting was called by the Churchwardens overseers and guardians they being the officers of the Parish. On the motion of the Rev. In. Scarboro i on seconded by Kev. H. Toller e. Of a Isber Esq., was called upon to preside. He said he had great pleasure in introducing to their notice through the meeting the claims of the patriotic fund. Seldom do we meet for any great purpose without a drawback of some kind or other. The drawback this time will be met by Charity that will be extended. He called upon the Rev. W. Scarborough who moved the following Resolution a a a that this meeting cordially responds to her majesty a benevolent suggestion that a patriotic fund be twined for the Relief of the families of such soldiers sailors and marines As May be Iii service during the War with Russia and pledges itself to use its Best endeavours to procure subscriptions to be paid Over to the Royal the speaker thought lie could add hut Little weight to the Resolution which he hoped would he cordially adopted by the meeting. As All might not be aware that no provision was made for the soldiers widows Ami orphans lie would say a few words. There was nothing for them Only parochial Relief. That state of things required a remedy. Hear hear if we do not now come Forward to give Relief it will be a stain upon our nationality. He was Happy to say there was no room to find fault. We might Oulu look round and perceive Tho Large meetings that had been held. That showed that the hearts of englishmen were in their right places Anil ready to assist them who were dying for them. The skill and courage of the British had called Forth the Praise of the whole of Europe. Three Bee Volmut funds Hail been established. One for the wives of the soldiers and sailors in the East had collected �80,Ugo. Then there was the fund for the sick Aud the wounded started by sir Robert Peel and so ably advocated by the times pith about �11,000. Then came the patriotic fund which would be More lasting and no doubt would realize �100,000. Liis showed that the spirit of Benevolence had not expired in this country. Cheers some will say that it is a Biol that no provision had lieu made for the w idols and children of our soldiers. This is not so. We have enjoyed 40 years of peace this War has come on rather unawares so that government is not to blame. In calling upon the Public for their contributions we have an Opportunity of meeting together and it will encourage our soldiers Iii the East. He hoped the War would to carried out to some permanent Good and the abasement of the Czar. War in the abstract lie considered defence Able and ought to be United to a Good cause.

The groans of the wounded and dying the derangement of Commerce amp a. It was certainly an evil of the greatest magnitude. Yet at times it Nasa necessity where nations make the ruling Power unprincipled aggression. It was the idea of Russia to Lay hold of Turkey and to add to his possessions. This then was a War of Liberty. If he had been allowed to go on he might at last tried to have planted his toot Iii our own country. He concluded by giving his most cordial support to the War. Or. W. Wartnaby seconded the Resolution. Rev. H. Toller proposed a that this meeting desires to record its High admiration of Tho Brave conduct of our Navy and allies Iii the East and ventures to express a Hope that it May speedily result in a successful termination of the to said his mind had been greatly elevated by Tho address of or. Scarborough. He was afraid he should have had to lass this meeting Over without taking part in it As the resolutions might not have been such As he could have agreed with. But on looking the one Over he had to propose there tas nothing to find fault with. He most cordially sup sorted it. He could not go so far As to say that All wars were just ones. He believe our ministry Bud Doue their duty to try to Settle it without bloodshed and for that deserved great Praise. He might say that a War was unjustifiable and yet support this Resolution. No person coaids have read the accounts of the War in the East without being proud of the soldiers As englishmen. Few of those men Hail entered into War before. Yet see How calmly and deliberately these men wont into Battle As if they had been on duty. Never flinching for a moment although one or other of their comrades were constantly falling by their Side. They pushed Forward and routed their enemies. They have manifested a courage which has never been surpassed Eft her Iii ancient or Modem times. It is a tact that Many Are not fully convinced of the awful consequences of death. Look at the letters sent Home by these men. He believed there were Many of the soldiers that feared god and they believed they Are doing their duty. Alt Tough he hated War yet he should feel proud of englishmen to see the Noble Way these men had behaved not Only in Battle but after and not Only to their own countrymen but to their enemies. Instead of beating them to death they were treated with the greatest kindness. Some would say that the soldiers Iii fighting this War had Only done their duty that it was what they were kept for. If he was to wait until men done More then their duty we should not be soon culled upon to assist them. We propose to establish peace by this War upon a permanent foundation. Let us keep this in View and see it is so. Let us guard against a warlike spirit of vindictiveness to Humble the Czar. When our ends Are gained let War cease. It Ive carry on this War it is w till our own blood but it is not the blood of the emperor of Russia but of his subjects. We should sympathise with tile widow and fatherless. Do not let the soldiers Only serve in this War but let us serve with them. Or. S. W. Cox seconded the Resolution. Rev. Joseph Goadby said he must somewhat Deverge from the subject of the meeting. He thought those who had been wanting a peace at any Price had been wanting of patriotism. Some had said this War was to support mahome Danini but it was no such to big every nation had its National rights. He Felt that the emperor of Russia wanted a Good thrashing. He considered we had taken up a just cause. Look what despotism had done for Poland Hungary and Italy. There is a Freedom that a Man would sooner sacrifice his life than lose. Where should we have been if it Hail not been for the Battle of Naseby Aud others for Liberty that were fought 200 years ago.
