THE LABOR TROUBLES.
TO THE EDITOB. Sir, —Having reason to attend the Railway Station last erening to witness the departure of the express, I was much astonished at the conduct of a few select individuals towards a man who was proceeding to Lyttelton to assist m discharging vessels. I know not whether the persons who so conducted themselves are members of any Labor Union, but if they 4re they are most decidedly a credit to it, and if they are under the impression that hooting and indulging m unseemly sentiments towards poor men, who are striving to obtain a livelihood, and whose circumstances they do not comprehend, will enhance their cause, I am inclined to think they will be sadly mistaken. A grave reform m the habits of those who were hooting last night is very much needed.—l am etc., P_x.
