A recent number of London Labeur and the London Poor has cleverly shown up one phase of this lamentable ignorance : “I naturally expected,” says Mr, Mayhew, that especial attention would be directed towards the point of classification with us, and that a technological system would be propounded; which would be found at least an improvement on the bungling systems of the French. Sequence is that met the same head as the work itself; and the Executive have been obliged to group under the first subdivision of B,aiv Materichls follov^hng inconsistent jumble ; “Salt deposits; ventilation; safety lamps and other methods eif “lighting ; metiiods of lovvering and raising miners, and drainmg ; methocbs of roasting, smelting, or otherwise reducing ores: while under the second subdivision of Raw Materials chemical and pharmaceutical ^^rocei^’g^ and products are Indiscriminately coniounded. Another most important def Pandora Bracelets ect is tlie omission of ail mention of tliose industrial processes wiiich have no speciai or distinct products of their own. but which are rather en gagedFVt adding to the beauty or durability of others ; as, for instance, int bleaching of some textile i’abrics. the embroidering of others, tne dyeing and printing of others ; the binding of books ; the cutting Pandora Bracelets of glasi; the painting of china, Fc. Una r the head of Mcmiifaccares arc grouped printing and bookbinding, the dyeing or woollen, cotton, and linen goods, embroidery, laucy. and industrial work, the cutting and engraving of glass : and. lastly, the art of decoration generally, including ornamental, coloured decoration, and the imitations of woods, marbles, “though sui’eiy these are one and all additions to manufactures rattier than manufactures themselves. Amid all this confusion and perplexity, then, how are we to proceed ? Why. we _must direct our attention to some more judicious and more^experienced cTuide. Fi such matters, at least, as the iixposition of the Science of Labour, it is clear that we must ‘ put not our trust in nrinces.’ _ ^ . . tdne word’ in conclusion, on the now defuncr Exhibition. We have satisiactorily detnonstrated to tne whole woild that they who enjoy tiie riches, the com lorts, and the luxuries of life, are exactly those wlio cannot contribute one lota toriie production of the very things thev ha^e monopolisea. GRACCHF^. it hod, s O work are arranged under . TO THE EDITOR OF RETNOLDS’S NEWSPAPEB. Sir. “Manchester is no doubt the greatest emporium of the world for manufacturing indtistry and skill. _ The great importance which it has attained as a city, and now the seat of a bishopric, and being moreover the great centre, from whence has emanated so many leagues and agitations, both of good and evil for mankind, the very name is deeply stereotyped in the public mind ; and, in many respects, the great metropolis of manufacturers rivals the capital of the empire itself. But here, as in London itself, and in as great, it not greater ratio, he will nnd splendour and misery side by side “the mansion of the wealthy abutting upon the hovels of the poor, mocking their squaloi’ and nhh, and by the contras^ rendering their rags and hunger more intolerable. as lie considers himself one of the middle class, may smile more humbly upon shopkeepers and other middle class customers; but no sooner has he outgrown his swaddling bands, mounted his carriage, taken or bought his country house, and begun to roll on his wheels of splendour, than tire ladder by which he ascended is kicked away., and he copies the manners of the peer and the prince, and scowls with supercilious scorn upon the crowds of labouring serfs belovv’ him. This has been and is the case with thousands. Whence did the Peel family spring, and amass above a million of wealth ? What patrimony had Richard Cobden, or the fatlier of John Bright? Answer, ye thousands of toiling poor, VN ho, year after year, in their vast dungeon like mills ” dungeons, though reared on high “have exhausted your energies and strength, for their mere pittance of wages, and brought yourselves to premature old age 1 The rapidity with which the cotton trade sprung up and became a great natural enterprise, when the machinery of Arkwright and Hargreaves, and the all but newly created steam engine of Watt were brought to bear upon it, is certainly a phenomenon not to be equalled in tlie industrial histor} of nation.?. But very far. indeed, am I from imagining with some, that the great stream of wealth, so suddenly, and from this source alone poured upon the nations, enabled us to counteract the power, and finally to overthrow Napoleon Bonaparte. But even bhould this for a moment be admitted, what does it orove, but that in a shape somewhat diiferent !>om an armed encounter, the great conqueror and his colossal power and empire were overthrown by the blood and muscle of the working classes ot Lancashire ? The greatness, nowever, of Manchester as the centre, and the towns of Bolton, Rochdale, Oldham, Stockport, Blackburn, and Bury as the wings of the cotton trade being admitted, as many wiil have them to be, “the great seats of industry, “and that in them are found the mines of the nation’s wealth, the keys of commerce, and the levers of civilization, the question to be considered is, have the social, the moral, and the political conditions of the vvorking elasses living within them been elevated in proportion as wealth has acctmiulated, as noble squares and mansions have arisen, and the wealth of industiy and commerce been placed in the hands of the few instead of the many producers ? The answer is “No. tliaE tire poor may trip from place to place cheaper by rail than they formerly could by coach or vvaggon, is 11 ue ; i’Ut it is equally true that their means of enjoying these “that is, their wages “have not been raised in nroportion with their usefulness, and hence the great nortion are. as much as ever, debarred from enjoying; what, if masters were their reach. The labouring L, migiit be placed within French E;\iigraxxs to California. “a religious service, on the occasion of the approaching departure of the first ex peditioB of emigrants to California, under the direction and control of the government, with the funds derived from the lottery of the golden ingots, was celebrated on Sunday at the church of Notre Dame, at Havre, wfeen prayer? were offered for the success of the expedition. The number of emigrants to be taken out in the ” Malouin” is 1C2, of whom 132 had ar rived at Havre on Saturday. They consist of persons of dif fercnt classes, artists, mechanics, aed appear in high spirits. They are confided to the care of s physician named Gornet, who wiU be accompanied to San Francisco by Ms son and daughter. Everything has been provided with great liberality for the comfort, of the emigrants on board as to the food, beuding, On their arrival in California, they will be entitled to eat and sleep on board fr a fortnight, in order that they may have time to make their arrangements, and vrhep they quit definitively they will take with them the bed 1 ding which had been furnished for the passage, a good suit of clothe, and the tools that they may require for the occupatioo. which they intend te follow. and that, even in seasons of the greatest prosperit}’., out lew masters, unless urged by some plea of necessity or afraid of a strike of the hands, vvili voluntarily grant the smallest advance. Surely the working men cannot be blamed, nowever economists may cry out at the vaguene’^s and generality of their demands, vv ho merely claim a juir day’s wages for a fair day’s work. We can nly make a rough approximation towaids it in any case, and must hence plunge deeper in our observations into the more private sanctuaries of business, and the domestic and sanatory condition of the people before we can probe their social_^wounds, search into the causes of their degeneracy, and display the ^pictures drawn witii the pcncil of truth to the world. The circumstancea, as they have transpired before the magistrates, are as follow The pri> soner, James Winslow, is the driver of a mail cart from Cirencester to the Tetbury road station of the Great “Western Railway, and was so ia 1347. In the month of February in that year a 20Z. note was enclosed in a letter, and posted in London for a Mrs. Hariock, at South Ceraey, Wilts, and would have to pass through the prisoner’g hands. The letter never reached its intended destinatien ; and, nstwithstanding strict inquiries, the matter remained in mystery until recently. The note had been stopped payment (it was a Bank of England note), and had never been presented until the end of August. In the evening of that day, in company with another man, be went to the shop of Mr. Bryant, an outfitter, of Aid gate, and purchased a waterproof coat and pair of leggings, tendering the 20i note in payment. When aaked to sign his name at the back, as wrote ” James Wilson,” instead of his own signature, and when questioned subsequently denied at first that he had made any such purchase in London. Un Mr, Bryant presenting the note at the Bank of England is was stopped. Mr. Bryant, when before the magistrates, deposed that to the best of his beUef the prisoner was the man who purchased the articles in his shop and signed the name “James Wilson ” on the back of the not e. The person who accompanied him waa HOt so stout, and said he was a farmer. Mr. Squires, the Cirencester postmaster, also expressed his beUef that ihe signature was in Winslow’g handwriting. Fatal Collision on the York axb NoaTH iliDLAXD Railwat. ^^Ah inquest was held at Burton Salmon on Satur day week, on view of the body of Thomas Govvland, a guard on the above line of railway, who was killed the previous day a short distance from Burton Salmon statien, and near to the spot where the junction of the Great Xortheru Raibvay occurs, The deceased’s death was caused by a collision between a coke and a goods train. The coke train, of which the deceaeJ was guard, left York in the morning, and when it had arrived at Burton Salmon, it was overtaken by a short goods crain from Milford Junction, which ran into a carriage behind :he van of the coke train, in which van ihe deceased was, and forced it into the van, which was very much broken. The deceased fell out of the van on to the line, and was removed to the station, where he died about two hours afterwards, one of his amis and his body having been dreadfully crushed. Evidence having been given, the coroner, in summing up, told the jury that he did not think it would justify them in recording a verdict of manslaughter. The jury were of the same opinion, and accordingly returned a verdict of Accidentally killed,” At the same time they considered that there had been some negligence on the part of the driver of the engine of the second train, in not sounding his whistle on approaching the coke train, and they trusted that the melancholy result of this accident would prove a caution to railway oiBciais generally for the future. Awfdlly Sudden Death in a Dancing Partt, “Another of those awful visitations to which this town has lately been subject, happened on Thursdayerening week. A company of young persons had assembled in the long room of the Abion Hotel, Buxton road, to form themselves into a dancing party, and amongst the number present was Mr, Alfred Hanson, a ne tall young man, about nineteen years old, son of Mr. Charles Hanson, watchmaker, of Chapel hill, with whom he was leariiing the business. A little after ten o’clock the party had concluded the ” Sehottische” dance, in which Mr, Hanson had taken a part, and before he had time to take his seat he reeled and fell backwards on the floor. Being of a lively disposition his companions aaturally enough concluded that he was about giving them a frolic, but this joy was suddenly turned to sadness when it was found that life was fast fleeting. The young man was taken into aa adjoining ?9om, proper restoratives apphed, but life was quite extinct on the arrival of Mr. Hollawell and Mr. Moson, surgeons, in a very short time after the event had happened. “Leeds Jrelli gencer. Accident on the Dublin and Belfast Junction Raix way. “On Thursday week, another unfortunate man, named James H’Ardle, employed as a navvie on the hne, was killed near Scrva, on the DubUn and Belfast Junction Railway, The accident occurred about aix o’clock in the moraing, by the deceased, ia attempting to put on a break, falling over the waggon in which he was standing. Five waggons passed over the body. Tke Murdsb of Police constable Hastie at Dspt FORD, IN 1S46, “The man William Creasy, who staads charged to ^laidstone Goal, on remand, on the evideace ox ilary Ann Davis, with wham he cohabited at that time, com municated with his second wife, Sarah Creasy, and she in consequence proceeded by water to Gravssend, on her way to Maidstone Gaol, ia order to aee him. On her way from Rochester, by the coach, she rode outside, and sat behind a gentleman passenger, from whose pocket she managed to ex tract his pocket book and a cigar case. The robbery being almost immediately discovered, the woman was giren into custody, and the lost property found upon her. On reaching Maidstone she was given into the care of the pohce, and taken before the magistrate, and forthwith consigned 😮 the county gaol for trial at the comisg sessions. Fatal Railway Accident, “On Tuesday eyening a ^’aral accident happened on the line of the Eastern Counties Railway, to a man named William Lever. It appears that the deceased was in the service of the Electric Telegraph Company, and waa in the act of crossing the rah way, near the Mile end platform, when he was jammed between the buffers of two carriages. He was extricated with difficulty, and carried to a surgeon’s in the neighbourhood, who found he iiad received such serious injuries that he advised his removal to the London Hospital, whither be was conveyed in a cab ; but when the vehicle reached the institution, the unfortunate man was found to be quite dead. The body was examined by the resident medical officer, who ascertained that the deceased had sustained extensive iaternal injuries. A Man Scalded to Death in a Mash tub, “On Wednesday last, a shocking accident occurred to i man named James Richardson, brewer to Mr. John Inman, of the Masons’ Arms, Lincoln. It appears that he was engaged in the brewhouse, and was in the act of stepping from the cooier on to a ladder which led to the copper, when, by some means the ladder became slightly displaced, and directly the unfar tunate man set a foot upon it it swerved on one side, and precipitated him into the mash tub, which was foil of water thac had shortly before been removed from the boiler, lie was scalded from head to foot. Being immediately rescued, and his clothes taken off, the skin peeled from his body along with his clothes, and his sufferings were excruciating, Ii “as deeme advisable to convey him to the County Hospital, as in that institution the best remedies csuld be the most readily applied, and he received every attention. On Wedneiday night he expired, and on Thursday Mr, Hitchins held an inquest on the )ody. Smith went up to the platform to turn the remainder of the water into the cooler, and whilst he was so engaged the deceased caret essly set the ladder to go up to the second i an ding, one side beiag set firmly, but the other jaot. The deceased then strode from the cooler to the ladder, a distance of fulJ four feet. Hicks perceived what would be the frightful consequences, but before he could get out more than the word “Jemmy,” the deceased had fallen headforemost into the mash iub \vith his heed under the water, which had not been run out of the copper m./’ coln Times. Sekious Robbery by a Foeeigner. “A German named Aronis Mcrjose hag been robbed in Manchester of loojo in Bank of England notes by an Hungarian refugee, named Jacob Alter. They lodged together at a bearding housel Morjose being in the town as a buyer of goods ; and on Saturday afternoon, while they were at dinner, Alter compiain^ed that he was poorly, aad left the room.
