belonged to the Parish of Winteringham, and was therefore liable for rates by the Parish.

Packet reported: BROUGH FERRY. - This is one of the few remaining royal-chartered ferries, and is of very ancient origin, being situate upon the old Roman road
from Lincoln to York, or, if you please, from London to Edinburgh. It crosses the Humber from Wintringham, in Lincolnshire, to Brough on the Yorkshire
side, at a distance of ten miles due west from Hull, and 20 east of Selby. Brough is a station on the Hull and Selby Railway, where twelve mixed trains,
with goods and passengers, call daily. The journey to Selby is regularly performed within an hour, and that to Hull usually in something less than half
that perod. We boast, in these days of strait [sic] lines on railroads; and the Hull and Selby railroad, for eighteen miles west of Brough, presents we
believe, as fine a specimen in this respect as is to be met with in England; but the road from Wintringham to Lincoln silently hints that that which has been
shall be, and where is there anything new under the sun? The distance from Wintringham to Lincoln is thirty miles, without a curve or a turn; it is,
however, in great part a broad green lane, which the newly-established steam-ferry at Brough is perhaps calculated to mar the beauty of. The ferry in
questions has a strong claim upon the Lincolnshire breeders.

The annual fair and sports took place on Saturday, and again
broke all records as to entries and attendance. The trip down the Humber by Her Majesty, left the pier before the stated time on account of having her
licensed number of passengers aboard, and a large number was left behind. The East Hull Silver Prize Band was specially engaged for the occasion and
played several splendid selections during the run down to the delight of the passengers. The attendance at the Sunday church parade was also very large,
the attraction being again the band. They also attended the service and played a sacred selection during the collection, which was for the benefit of the
Hull Royal Infirmary, and £2 10s will be handed over to that institution. The Vicar (the Rev Mr Knowles) pleaded hard for the charities. A sacred
concert was given by the band and another record was broken at the collection which was given to the band. Mr Carlisle, the conductor, must be highly
flattered at the reception he and his men received during their stay and at the encores they received. The following were the winners at the

GRAND CONCERT. - A few evenings ago a most excellent concert of sacred and secular music was
given in the New Hall, under the conductorship of Mr J.H. Green, by Dr J.H. Gibson and a numerous party of ladies and gentlemen from Hull. It is the

place with another visit, they may depend on having a full house and a most hearty welcome.
