The Repairs of the Inn at Haydon Bridge has been occupying my attention for several days past, the state of filth and vermin in which it was left having required that every skirting-Board should be taken off.

I agreed to-day with Mr Hutchinson the Surgeon to allow of his continuing tenant of the House he has several years occupied, on his paying to the Hospital Fifteen pounds a year rent from the 12th of May instant. This House has hitherto been omitted in the Hospital Rental.

I am much gratified to learn that Cattle of every description, especially lean stock, fetched high prices and sold rapidly at Stagshaw Bank fair to-day – this is, I believe, the largest Cattle fair held in the County, and it was on account of it that I deferred the Rent day, and the result is likely to be advantageous to me in getting more rent.
