LABOR QUESTIONS.

[PER I'KKSS ASSOCIATION.] London, July 9. The policemen who have been dismissed complain they were deserted by | their comrades, and insist on being re- | instated. Renewed rioting occurred in Bow street to-day and sixteen arrests were effected. Attempts were made to rescue the prisoners, which resulted in the rioters being batoned and some amount of bloodshed. The military were held in readiness, but were not called out. It is asserted the discontent is confined to the young men of the city police force.
