Letter HK White to
Benjamin Maddock: My days flow on here in even tenor. They are, indeed, studious days, for my studies seem to multiply on my hands, and I am so much occupied with them,
that I am becoming a mere bookworm, running over the rules of Greek versification in my walks , instead of expatiating on the beauties of the surrounding scenery.
Winteringham is indeed now a beautiful place: the trees are in full verdure, the crops are browning the fields, and my former walks are become dry underfoot, which I have
never known them to be before. The opening vista, from our church-yard, over the Humber, to the hills, and receding vales of Yorkshire assumes a thousand new
aspects. I sometimes watch it at evening, when the sun is just gilding the summits of the hills, and the lowlands are beginning to take a browner hue. The
showers partially falling in the distance, while all is serene above me; the swelling sail rapidly falling down the river; and not least of all, the villages, woods and
villas on the opposite bank, sometimes render this scene quite enchanting to me; and it is no contemptible relaxation, after a man has been puzzling his brains over the
intricacies of Greek choruses all the day, to come out and unbend his mind with careless thought and negligent fancies, while he refreshes his body with the fresh air of

horses which bit and licked the pony, explaining the marks on the back. The case was dismissed.

SERIOUS OUTRAGE.- The following has been transmitted to us by a
correspondent :- “A serious occurrence, to which I was an eye-witness, took place on Friday the 8th inst. at Wintringham. Three men, a father and two-sons,
named Pickersgill, who bear an indifferent character, entered the village about six o’clock in the evening, in a state of intoxication, and commenced quarrelling
with the inhabitants. After the three had been fighting with some persons for a short time, the father, finding their antagonists getting the better of them, ran up to his
house, a distance about 200 yards, swearing he would shoot two of the inhabitants, and the constables who had interfered for the preservation of the peace. He was seen to
charge his gun, after which he returned down the street. One of the constables, and several inhabitants, endeavoured to wrest the weapon from him to prevent mischief.
Finding himself overpowered, he cocked the piece and fired. There were at the time nearly 200 persons assembled. The shot struck the ground and rebounded, wounding a woman
and her daughter who were standing at their own door, and a girl and boy, the latter of whom is considered to be in some danger, he having received three shots in his
body. The rage of the populace was powerfully excited at this desperate act; they seized the gun and dashed it to pieces, and could scarcely be restrained from
executing summary vengeance upon its owner. He was however handcuffed and placed in a situation of security during the night, and on the following morning conveyed to
Burton.” Our correspondent adds that, after an investigation into the particulars of the case, the magistrate, Sir Robert Sheffield, committed the prisoner for
a limited period to Kirton house of correction, in consequence of one of the inhabitants stating that he considered his life in danger from his violence. The two sons, who
had also been in custody were released. It is said that the parishioners of Winteringham are determined to bring the affair to trial at the sessions.

"L AND Y" RAILWAY ENTERPRISE
FURTHER OUTLET ON THE HUMBER
What the future of Winteringham
on the Humber, will be it is perhaps at the present moment difficult to forecast, though now, thanks to the enterprise of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Company,
which work a railway between Scunthorpe, near Frodingham, Lincolnshire, and the port, it now seems fraught with boundless possibilities. If the port is not so well
known as Goole or Hull it has just as many advantages in that it has fine deep water suitable for a quay and wharfage, and will form an excellent additional outlet to meet
the ever growing requirements of the company. From the merely local point of view Winteringham has also the advantage of being in close proximity to a district,
Frodisham [sic .... should be "Frodingham"], rich in deposits of iron ore. As already known, a scheme was formulated some time ago by the Lancashire and
Yorkshire Company to lay a railway direct from Fockerby, over the Trent to Winteringham, but ultimately this scheme was abandoned owing to certain opposition. In
connection with this Sir George Armytage's statement at the half-yearly meeting of the company may be recalled.
Negotiations took place, with the happy result
that we are able to obtain favourable facilities for dealing with our traffic without incurring the expense of making a new railway.
Though the secret has been
studiously kept the favourable facilities undoubtedly refer to the working of this railway from Scunthorpe. When it is well known that the "L and Y" is a
gigantic steamship-railway carrying company, having twenty five vessels at its disposal sailing to many of the Continental ports, Winteringham as well as the other ports
will no doubt be able to cope with the ever increasing traffic of the North of England.

very hearty dinner, but between five and six o'clock he was attacked with cholera, which in a short time became so severe that it was thought advisable to have him
conveyed to his residence at Newport, where the best medical aid was procured (Mr. H. J. Raines of that place, was in immediate attendance), and the most prompt and
anxious attention was paid to his case, and every means used for his restoration, but without the desired effect, as he expired a little after one o'clock on Friday
morning, after suffering the most excruciating pain. He was very greatly respected by his employers, Messrs. Grasby and Reynolds, and a numerous circle of friends
and relatives. He was the youngest son of the late Captain George Sargeant, of Wintringham, near Barton, Lincolnshire, and was in the 31st year of his

DAWSON'S DEFALCATIONS.- At a meeting of the Brigg Board of Guardians on the 16th, a letter was read from Mr Jabez Spencer, overseer of
the poor for the parish of Winteringham, requesting the guardians to allow the last payment of the union call to be put off until the 29th September, stating as his reason
for the application that the defalcations of Mr Wm. Dawson, who recently absconded, had made dreadful work among the small farmers in the parish. The application was
granted, the Chairman remarking that he knew that a number of small farmers had suffered heavy losses through Dawson. - It is alleged that some of the frauds committed by
Dawson were of a most ingenious and impudent character, and that he actually broke open his children's money boxes, and in place of the several pounds which he
abstracted he left in them some worthless cheques. It is also rumoured that he was seen in Winterton on Wednesday night, and at Doncaster on Thursday, when it was
supposed that a warrant was out for his arrest, but there is a strong feeling in the district that no effort has been made to secure him. The girl who is supposed to
have accompanied him it is said still corresponds with her friends. We were erroneously informed last week as to the last text from which he preached before his
absconding. It is the latter part of the 1st verse of the 63rd chapter of Isaiah. The delinquent possessed a remarkable memory, and has long been known as a

Henry Burkill took John Brumby to court for the non-payment of £10 18s 6d from the estate of the late
Charles Burkill. John Brumby pleaded the statute of limitations. It appears that William Dawson (infamous at the time for absconding and owing a great deal of
cash to Winteringham farmers) who was executor of Charles Burkill along with John Brumby, had paid some money to Henry Burkill, and therefore it was alleged that this
overcame the statute of limitations. However, John Brumby knew nothing of this, and the judgement was given in his favour.

prevent the road being submerged in high spring tides. The Humber Conservancy had suggested stopping [closing] the narrow channel between Read's Island and the
mainland, which would solve the problem.

amount owed in rent was in dispute, and also for the cost of meat supplied and not paid for. In each case the judge found in favour of Mr Ogg. Mrs Robinson

A Winteringham man appeared before Scunthorpe Magistrates and pleaded guilty to being
drunk on licensed premises on August 4th. The Chairman said that he had 27 previous convictions and would be committed for 28 days. After consultation it
appeared the Bench couldn't impose this sentence, so he was fined 17s 6d including costs, or 14 days. The man asked to pay part, but Superintendent Holmes
objected - the arrears of previous fines had been wiped off recently to give him a fresh start, but he was as bad as ever! The Chairman stated that he either paid
the fine or went to gaol.

Vanishes after Hull Pier Thrill

sloop moored nearby.
