M,r Sampson Lloyd contended that 'we must look to the producer quite as much as the consumer. The object of ihe Fair Trade League was not lo go back to Protecdbri,' as it was the .in-, terest of some to assert, but to prevent’ that one-sided Free Trade which, 1 .has been the pplipy; pf Y this country forthe past twenty years..

i Shocking Boat Accident on the Thames.
: Between 11 and 12 Sunday morning, September 1 4thy two -* youths, named Thomas aged ! xls, Hying at, Nol ia, ley-down, and John living with his ■mother at No. *6, ■ Thomas street, in the. same ; neighborhood, left home about 10 o’clock far 1 the purpose of taking a walk. Both ■’> the youths were engaged .as r, letter.sorters in the General Post Office, St Martin’s-le-Grand. While they were;' proceeding along London-bridge it was' suggested they should take a pleasure boat, which they did at the nearest stairs, and proceeded towards street bridge. Through; some unaccountable circumstance the craft came. ; violently athwart the abutement of the* bridge, the consequence being, that both the unfortunate boys were precipi- ■ tated into the water. At this moment a young man who was working at 1 a wjndlass on the wharf not far off per ceived the accident, andy. without waiting to divest himself of his apparel, jumped in and swam towards; the spot;! Manser was seen to rise to the - sutface*twice, but Fulchfer, according to tbe ; ' ,! statements ofspectators, appeared to disappear beneath the boat.! Theat tendon of the crews of the Albert Edward,-. . ValeofClwyd, Alexandria, and other . steamboats which were lying near, as well, as Mr Kingsford, piermaster at London Bridge pier, were also directed to the accident, and boats were put off to the assistance of the drowning persons, but, unfortunately, the youths had sank before help could be rendered to them. Several of the Thames police afterwards threw out the drags, and in less than half an hour the body p£ Thomas Manser was picked Up by Act-' ing-Inspector John Abnett. Manser’s s mother states that her son came. home frcjm the office about 9.30 a.m. and remarked that he had to return to the; office at three in the afternoon.. UpPa.;/ her suggesting that he -should gotfo :-:ui bed, he having been at work for eight' hours, he replied, “ I think I Have tod * much sleep, 1 think I want more put- : door exercise.” He then went out for. .y the purpose of buying a and - tl . never returned.

number 01 men belonging to the 31st and the 55th Regiments. It seems that an ill-feeling had existed between the two regiments for some time past. A dispute arose with reference to the respective merits of two men, one belonging to the 55th and the other to 31st, who had taken part in the garrison sports of the former regiment Commencing with a pugilistic encounter between the two soldiers, the dispute gradually assumed graver proportions, until upwards of 200 men^wereei^pged fortunately,, (were, ireagng; ;thpir belts, freely used, aodi Several men sustained instfry& SBSi¥ (giard were called out, but until they could be strengthened 'their efforts To” quell the~3isturbarice • ineffectual.
