8 IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT. Continued from the Seventh Fage.) "Weta two difficulties in the way of; the Government which . he would ho somewhat disturbed ai if it wore proposed to ., introduce any hill upon this question. . Any hill that thtf 'Government would introduce would meet with consider-nblo obstacles. If it did not givepower, for example, to suppress the liquor traffic, but only within limits to control It, he did not know that they would hava the cordial and earnest support of the hon. Member for Carlisle. He hoped between now and the time when a bill -would be introduced the hon. Baronet would have in some degree, If not changed, yet moderated his view, so that he might, with the great forcos behind him, support any Government which might attempt honestly to. deal with the question. (Hear, hear.) 'Jho other difficulty referred to compensation in cases whoreipublic-houses were suppressed when thore had been no breaoh of the law. On further consideration it probably would not be thought absolutely wrong if Parliament did, under these circumstances, provide some mode by which men, engaged in a legal business should not bo deprived of that . business without compensation. (Cheers.) These were two points in which ho thought any bill brought in byany Government would probably differ from the view of his 'hon. friend ; and he should regret very much if the hon. Member should feel himself bound, the moment a bill founded upon his resolution was pr'edted to tho House, to rise in his place and Bay it was a mealuro he could by no means accept or support. If they passed the resolution there would bo in some degree another stop in advance. They would gradually come to something more liko unanimity in considering this question, and possibly approach a state of feeling and opinion which would enable them at some not distant time to legislate upon it.' But there were several great questions Mooting' tho way. What were the peat questions to which the Government have to turn attention ? Thore was the great question of the land laws. (Cheers.) There was another question on which the liberal party was united, and. that was tho extension of the county franchise and the Redistribution of Parliamentary seats. (Hear, hoar.) Ha hoped that question would meet with general support. 'There was, besides that, another ques. tion which pressed very muoh, and that was the municipal government of this great city of four millions, (Hear, hear.) A greater confusion of government than this never existed at a timeiof peace in any creat city in the world. (Hoar, hear.) ' Those were great and pressing questions, and some of '.them were ripo for the consideration of tho House and' for being dealt with by Parliament. If tho Government wore to moke a choice, what choice would it make? It might be that the question of tho drink traffic was very pressing, though it would bo injudicious in the last degree to take that "before the othor questions he had mentioned. He was not now arguing against the general object of his hon. .friend, but he was arguing. to show that the passing of the resolution last year and the reaffirming of it this year must not be understood as compelling the Administration to take up this question and deal with it immediately. At any rate, if that be the case, and that be tho conclusion to which they had come, his hon. friend had no occasion to regret or despair. Tho hon. Member for Cambridgeshire, who spoke last, told them -what a diminution there had been in the number of licenses, and that there had been a general diminution, although there had been also an increase of population, and he argued from that that magistrates had fairly and honestly, done their dufcy. He (Mr. Bright) did not in tho least doubt that : but ho would say that tho reason of the change had been in oouBequence of tho great agitation throughout tho country, which had been promoted and led in a great degree bv tho hon. Baronet (hoar, hear) and he might toko comfort from the fact that although the House and the Government were not prepared to promote any bill on tho question, that the discussion of this question going on from year to year would create an amount of opinion which would not only compel some Government to deal with this question, but which was necessary to enable any Government to deal with it' effectively and satisfactorily. (Hear, hear.) He (Mr. Bright) need scarcely say that the polioy placed on record by the Treasury Bench on this question lastyear was the same as to-night. This was a matter on which every Member of tho House of Commons had a right to torm his own opinion, and to act fairly npon it. Ho hoped whatever the division might be, it would not be a division influenced by party, but by the circumstances of the time at which they were debating and of its effect, and thuB ' promoto the importance of the great question which his hon. friend had submitted to them. (Cheers.) Colonel MAKfNS (S. Essex) said that for twelve years a large number of hon. Members had not been able to support Sir W. Lawson's motion, but directly it became vague they were ablo to do so. Ho shoidd voto'agmast jt. ' Tho hon. Member spoke amidst cne3 of " divide. The House then divided . ( For tho resolution J?6 Against .....- l0 Majority for w The announcement of tho result was warmly cheered. On the, motion of Col. Aiexandms, Mr.. J. Stewart was added to tho Select Committee on Customs Outdoor Officers at the Outports. Major NOLAN moved for leave to bring in a bill to suspend evictions in Ireland for a limited period on payment of six months' rent. Sir H. D. WOLFF thought it extraordinary that a bill of this kind should bo brought in while the Land Bill was 3n pro-TOSB without the Government taking any part iu it. Ho diefnot oppose the. introduction of tho bill, but moved tho adjournment of tho debate. , . Mr GLADSTONE requested tho hon. Baronet to withdraw "tho motion, and without expressing an opinion with regard to the bill.'hoped that no obstacle would bo ottered toits introduction. Mr. W. H. SMITH joined in the appoal for the withdrawal of tho motion. Lord ELCHO commentea on the fact that tho Prime Minister had not said one word against the principle Of the bill proposed to be brought in, and said ho should not be surprised if it was sanctioned by the Government at a . later period of the session. Ho should therefore support the motion for the adjournment of tho 'debate, if it was persisted in; . Mr. A. M. SULLIVAN said it was highly important that there should bo some truce during the passage of the Land Bill, so that peace might be restored to Ireland while the measure was being debated in the House. Captain AYLMER maintained that evictions in Ireland were not more now than they were in ordinary times. Mr. B. N. FOWLER objected to tho introduction of the bill. ' Sir H. WOLFF expressed his desire to withdraw the motion, but a division was insisted upon. 'For the motion 26 Against 148,on Majority against 122 "Leave was then' given to bring in tho bill. Major Nolan mentioned ten out of the forty names originally at tho back of the bill. The Post-office Land Bill was considered as amended, nnd read a third time. The House adjourned at 12.40. The Parliamentary Oath. Mr. Hinde Palmer has placed the following notice of motion, for " an early day," on the books of the House of Commons: "That it is no. longer necessary for tho security of the Throne that tho declaration or promise of allegiance made In this House should be m the form of an oath, and, having regard to the manner in whioh. such oath has been dealt with iu modern times, it has become and is desirable that iu liou thereof every Member, before first taking his seat, should subscribe the Parliament roll of Members, having at tho heaS thereof tho following declaration and promiia of allegiance, namely ' I . do solemnly and sincerely promise and declare that I will be faithful and bear truo allegiance to Her Majesty Queen 'Victoria', her heirs and successors, according to law;' andjhat every Member Bubsoribing such promisa and declaration should be in the same position, to all intents and purposes, as if be had taken tho oath at present required." THE KIVERS. CONSERVANCY BILL. An influential deputation, representing tho Corporations of several largo towns in England, had an interview yesterday afternoon with Mr.- Dpdson, M.P., and Mr. Hibbevt, M.P., at the, Local Government Board, to.asfc the Go-erument to use every constitutional means in its power to pass into law this session the Rivers Conservancy Bill the object of which is to prevent floodB, which have of lato' years devastated the country, and, besides deteriorating the value of land, had led to Iosb of life and destruction of cattle; and consequently to the great injury of the landowners and farmers, as well as injuring tbo health of inhabitants affected by the floods. Lord Sand-wich, Mr. Magniao, M.P., Mr. f Pell. SLR, Mr. Broad-hurst MP Mr. Hunter , Eodwoll, M.P., Mr. J. H. Tillatt M.P., the Earl of Derby, Mr. Lawrence, M.P., Mr. Hinde Palmer, M.P., Mr. A. Arnold, M.P., and -other Members of Parliament accompanied tho deputation. Mr Dobson, in reply, thanked them for the expressions of good-will towards the Government for the efforts made to let the bill passed. The Government had caused, the bill to be submitted to a Committee to deal with the clauses before it came up to tho House for enactment ; and he felt convinced that tha result would be appreciated bv all water authorities throughout tho country. Ho could assure them that every effort would bo usod, to pass the bill into law this session, indeed, it would' bo no fault of the Government if it was not before many months wero over tho law of the land.

PARLIAMENTARY NOTES. (Fbosi OVJE WN CoBanspoNBEio;.! House or Commons, Tuesday Night. To-day the House' met at two. There were ' not, many questions on the 'paper, but some of them 'were of greater or less importance. Mr. Maofarlane intimated that on Thursday ho would ask tho Chief Secretory for Ireland whether within his knowledge any tenant had submitted to expulsion from his holding' who was really able to pay his rent. Mr. Maclver likewise graciously announced that he would respite the President of tho Board of Trado tm Thursday. On that dies ilia, dies ira, he would bring Mr. Chamberlain sharply to book with regard to English exports to and imports from France. The Meiiiber for Birkenhead, it may be remembered, had a severe fall with tho President of the Board of Trado last night, and ho is still evidently feeling his wounds. The next enoounter was between Mr. Thorold Rogers and the Home Secretary. He brought up the question of prison mat-maHng, asking the Government, in tho interest of tho trade, to appropriate all. prison-made mats for the use of the different Government departments. "Mr. Rogers," said Sir William, "is a distinguished politioal eoonomist." He would therefore recognise the importance of . employing prisoners 'in industrial ; occupations, and that for tho relief of the publio their ; labours should be sold in the .best market. If .the Government offices could absorb all the mat-making energy of the prisons, well and good ; but it would be absurd to suppose they could. ."Replying to Mr. Labouchere, Sir Charles Dilke sub stantially confirmed the worst that has been affirmed regarding tho high-handed action of the Prinoe of Bulgaria in upsetting, the Constitution of the Principality. It was something to learn that tho Government has not been an altogether silent spectator of this ' would-be coup d'Uat. Major Nolan then had an amusing passage of arms- with the redoubtable Mr. Warton. He begged the learned Member for Bridport to withdraw "the block" caused by his preventing the hill to suspend evictions in Ireland from being printed. The gallant Major, to prove the importance of his bill, read out a list of no fewer than, thirty-five Irish Members as among its backers. Mr. Warton, having first ascertained from Mr. Speaker that it would be courteous for him to give reasons to Major Nolan for his obstruction, replied that he regarded two Land Bills at once as too much. If the Land Bill with only five fathers occupied suoh a length of time, how long would not a bill with thirty - five fathers take f Mr. Warton'a little sum in proportion was more amusing than most of his antics. He is now recognised as the privileged clown of tho House, and nobody, as.a rule, regards anything that he does or says seriously. Mr. M. Henry, however, thought it worth his whil to ask Mr. Speaker if Mr. Warton's habit of systematic eally blocking important bills by taking advan tage of the half-past twelve rule was not an abuse of tho intention of the House. Mr. Speaker readily admitted the abuse, but declared that the remedy did not rest with him, hut with the House itself. . The Housa thereafter went into Com' mitteo on the Land Bill, ani before it rose at seven a very reasonable space of ground had been traversed, viz., all the way from line 20 page 1 to line 26 pago 2, If mere superficial area is to be regarded, this is by far the best day's work that has yet been accom plished. At nine tho Houso, reassembled to consider Sir Wilfrid Lawson s Local Option resolution, when there was, of course, a full House and a orowded auditorium, Sir Wilfrid's speech was for him a dull one. The sprightliest wit can hardly be expeotod always to sparkle on the same subject. Still he made more than one good hit. There was, he said, a time when a private Member, by dint of great perseverance, might get a bill throusrh the Houso : but that was before the advent of the Member for Bridport. Mr, Warton was a "blooker'' of bills "block head" many hon. Members thought he said, and prioked up .thoir ears. Mr. Daly, a distiller, was the next speaker. ?'If distillers were to beevioli 'in the popular interest, what ought not to', be- the fate of landlords?'.' he . " asked. Captain Aylmer deplored the drunkenness of Sootland, where men got "foil" drinking whiskey m oiose, ul-ventilatea pens. What was wanted was large, roomy public-houses, if intemperance was to be cured. Mr. Sainuelspn and Mr. Hicks having spoken, Mr. Bright addressed the House. His rising was the signal for the closest attention. Ho complimented the hon. Member for Carlisle on tho spirit ho had evoked throughout the country. Tho question of the liquor traffio was ripo or ripening, and no Government could long neglect it. But there was the old difficulty of driving six. or oight coaches through Temple Bar at once. What of the Land Laws, the extension of the franchise, redistribution of seats, and the reform of the municipality of London ? All these questions were ripo, nay olamant. Albeit the Government gladly would if it could. Colonel Makins having then briefly addressed the House, the division was taken, with tho result that 196 voted for and 154 against tho resolution of the teetotal Baronet. SANITARY CONDITION OF LEEDS. In his report for the month of May Dr. Goldie, medical officer of health, says I am glad to state that the publio health is highly satisfactory. The births registered in the four weeks number 880, and stow the rate of 35-1 per 1,000 living upon the estimated population of the borough. The . birth-rate is slightly below the average for the 20 large towns in England during 1880. Tho deaths numbered 471, and yield the rate of 18-8 per 1,000 living at all ages. The death-rate for 1880. during the corresponding four Weeks was 18'0. The rata of 1881 therefore shows an increase of 0-8 per 1,000. Still, our present mortality is low comnared with some , of the 20 large towns. The nttfural increase of the population given by the excess of births over the deaths is 409. The deaths of infants under one year of . age numbered 133, and yielded tho death-rate of -6-3 per 1,01)0 living at all ages, and further yield the rate of 1511 per 1,000 born in the samo period. I am glad to say that our infant mortality rate is vary low at present. It. indicates undoubtedly that the temperature has not risen to summer uitchvot. The average infant death-rate in the nineteen rl . J. , -, icier, i7n l nor, . provincial towns aunng i range being from 146 in Bristol to 219 in Leicester. The UCU.UUB Ui uuiiuioi 'S"' J 1 number 45, and of 'those aged two years ana under 88, and vield the rate of 3-6 per 1,000 living at all ages.

The. seven diseases and their respec-. tive deaths are as follows : Fevers 9, diarrhoea .3, scarlet fever 1, diphtheria 0, smallpox 0, measles .1, whooping-cough 23.

LAUNCH OF A.LAEGB STEAMSHIP '....: AT BARROW. BOILER EXPLOSION : 3 MEN KILLED AND 7 ' INJURED. . . The celebration of the centenary of the birth of George Stephenson,- ".the; Father - of Bailways,." last' week, reminds us of the faot that Barrow-iu-Purness is a remarkable oxample of a busy, bustling, thriving town which owes its existence almost entirely, to tlie develop ment of the railway Bystem. Within the recolleotion of the present Duke of Devonshire, Barrow was not even a village, but "tho smallest collection of houses deserving to be called a hamlet," to use the noble Duke's own expression.' In 1844 Barrow jvaa only an insignificant village; the census of 18d1 snowed that its population had increased' to 3,000 ; and in 1866, when application was made for a charter of incorporation,, tho inhabitants numbered 10,000. The population m 1871 was IS,Md, and this year the, census returns showed that tho town had enormously increased, the population being 47,092, or an increase of 28,847 within- the last decennial period. The district is rioh m mineral wealth, and its natural posi tion gives it great advantages as a seaport, but the treasures of its mines may be said to have been developed within the last twenty years, and the splendid dock accom modation which tho port now enioys dat03 from 1884, when tho sohenio was first projected. The iron ore found in the distriot is of great purity, and for it there has been great demand. At the beginning of the present century; .however, the shipments from the port, did not expeed 3,000 tons annually.', In 18.44 the amount had increased to about 60,000 tons, and the difficulty in finding carts to oonvey this large quantity, of ore .from the variouB mines to the port led the different mining companies to think of laying down a mineral line of railway. The Duke of Devonshire (then Earl of Burlington) and tho Duke of Buccleuch, 'who are large landowners in the distriot, gave the scheme their support, and a company was formed for the coustruotion of a railway.fof the conveyance of passengers and general traffic as well as minerals. The line which was then formed was about.Ctteen miles in length, and brought the distriots of Dalton-in-Purness andKirkby into direct communication with Barrow. At different periods the line was extended to Ulverston, Broughton-in-Purness, and 'Whitehaven j and in 1867, whou the line from Ulverston to Oarnforth was completed, railway communication was obtained with all parts of the country. As the railway facilities wore extended, the shipments of ore became greater, and in 1867 the total produce of the iron mines of the district was 464,853 tons, nearly the whole of whioh was shipped. In 1864 the yield of iron ore had increased to 691,421 tons, of which 239,623 tons were used at blast furnaces, whtcu. in tne m-tra-vftl had been ereoted at Hindnoo), a distriot of Barrow, the remainder being shipped to other placeB. The progress of Barrow from that time has been rapid, Large steel works, rolling-mills, flax aud jute nulls, and otftermanurac-tones were established, all of which have given employ ment to thousands of people, and have been more or less successful. which now employs above five, thousand men, was fprmed in 1870, and the works wero constructed on Old Barrow Island, tha; whole covermg fifty-eight acres of land. ' The shipbuilding yards nave arroncage or i,uou m mu Walney Channel, and here are the launching slips, tho channel 'being peculiarly-favourable for bunching purposes, as the tide rises about 20 feet. Extending across the island to the Devonshire Dock, the works have here also a frontage of 1,050 feet, and after vessels nave Been launched they are towed round to this point, where their engines are nut in and their fittings completed. Considering that tho company has been such a short time in existenco, it nas nau no reason io compimu ui imj amount of patronage it has received. The year after it? formation it contracted with the Eastern Steamship Company to build six steamers, each of 4,000 tons burden and 50u-horsa power. It has erected many others' for .various.owners, including small gunboats for the -Royal Navy ; and last year it contracted with the Inman Steamship ' Company to build a steamship to be called the City nf R.. the size of which has never been surpassed except in the case of the Great Eastern. The Great iiiJisieru, it may ua uieuuuucu, i w adou iwug cuu. broad. The weight is 12,000 tons, and the horse power as follows : Paddles, 1,000 ; screw, 1,600. The City of Borne, whioh is the seventy-seventh ve6se constructed by the company, is of the following dimensions ; Length over all, 610 feet ; length between perpendioularB, 646 feet; extreme breadth, 62 feet 3 inches; depth of hold, 37 f oet ; tonnage, 8,826 tons, indicated horse power, 10,000. It was stipulated that the vessel .should combine the highest rate of speed with the maximum of comfort and conYeuioucos, such os are 'only to- be found in tho best modern hotels. Thn rlistinntira tvna of the Inman line has not been departed from in respect of the perhaps old-fashioned but still handsome profile, witn cupper now, ugure-neau, auu Wi-am-it-.. Thn flffure-head is a full-lenztli fisure of one of the Offisars, in the Imperial purple. The whole of tho headword, with tuis exception, is iormeu oi uuu, to save the cost and trouble of continually renewing the head-rails, &o., when made of wood. ' Tho vessel is to be rigged with four masts ; and here again the handsome full shiprig of the luman lino, has, been . adhered to, with' tho iA&Unn ft-f ha fm-A.nnd-fi.iFf: rierrrpA lifl-ffe'r-mast. ' rendered .necessary by. the enormous length, of the vessel;-. She will -iuwe inree runnels,.- eauu jiuuwm uu mo wuipuj n white band. A point calling for special notice is the large number of separate compartments' formed by' watertight bulkheads, each extending to the main. deck. The largest of.. these compartments are only about ,60ft. long; .and. . supposing . .that, . .from collision or other oaUBe, .one. .of .these were filled with water, the trim of the vessel would , not be materially affected. The stern frame,' or post, made at the Mersey Steel and Iron Works, is the largest single forging ever modo for suoh a purpose; the" finished weight is no less than 33 tons, a6 compared with 18 tons iu the stern-pos,t of the Piirnessia, of 6,600 tons. The framing of the vcssbI is- of the ordinary type, the floors being 34in. deep at the centre line. Thore are two complete iron docks above, while the lower deok is complete for half the length, aud has wide plating on eaoh side for "the remainder. The question of propelling this great vessel at so high a speed, namely, 18 knots .per hour, was one that demanded long and very careful consideration. It was ultimately decided that it would be better to adhere to the siugle-screw arrangement, and to adopt a propeller 24ft. in diameter, driven by three sets of inverted " tandem " engines, working on three'eranks disposed at an angle of 120. degrees with one another.1 The "tandem" engine will have the high-pressure cylinder placed in a lino behind or above the low-pressure cylinder. Each high-pressure oy finder will be carried upon three' wrouglii-iron columns, inus giviug yioiuy ui niu a easy access to the stuffing-boxes'; and also .enabling the cylinder covers, whioh are made in halves, to be readily withdrawn. The slide-valves will be driven by an independent-shaft, worked by two pair of mortise wheels, one at each end of the engines, an arrangement which has the advantage of requiring comparatively small excan-trics. ' The crank-shoft is a built shaft, and, together with h Er-.rnw shaf tins', has been made by Sir Joseph 'Whit- worth and Co. , of their fluid-compressed steel. The shaf t-iugis mado hollow, and by the following process, which must ensure perfect soundness : Each length is made from a hollow cylindrical ingot, which, while in the molten state, is subjected to a heavy hydraulic pressure, thus ensuring the exclusion of all gases, and thoroughly consolidating the entire mass. Tho ingot is afterwards reheated and placed on a mandril, and is then forged and drawn by hydraulio pressure until it .ultimately assumes the form of a double-collared shaft. The leading particulars of the engines are as follows There will be three high-pressure cylinders 43iu. diam,, and three low-pressure cylinders 86in. in diameter and 6ft. stroke. The diameter of the crank shaft iB '25in., and of the crank pins 26in. The length of the main bearings iB 33in:, and of the crank pins 28in. The crank shaft, as huilt up complete, will weigh 64 tons ; had it been made Of iron nTid anlM. thn wflieht would have been 73 tons. The pro peller shafting is 24in. in diameter, and the hole. through it Win. in diameter. The thrust shaft has 13 collars, 39Jin. diameter,' giving a surface of 6,000 square inches. This piece of shafting weighs 17 tons. The propeller shaft js 25in. diameter, and 30Jf t. long, and weighs 18 tons. The engino bed-plate weighs 100 tons. The cooling surface of the condensers is1 17,000 square feet, equal to nearly 17 miles 360 yards of tubing. 'There will be tWd air-pumps, 39in. in diametwand Sft; stroke : those pumps, and thefeed and bilge pump's, will be worked by levers attaohedto the aft and forward engines. There will also be a large centrifuaal pumping engine, which can either be used for pumping heavy leaks or to discharge through tne conaenser. mere wiu aiso oe tntee auxiliary pumping engines, for feeding the. boilers, for bilge pumping, and for decs purposes. Steam will be supplied by eight cylindrical tubular boilers, fired from both ends." Each boiler is 14ft. moan diameter, and 19ft. long, with a steam receiver 13ft. long and, 4ft. diameter, and has six furnaces 3ft. 9in. diameter, three at each end, so that there are forty-eight furnaces in all. The fire-bars ar& 6ft. long, giving a grate surface of 1,080 square feet. The shell plates of the boilers, supplied by Sir John Brown and Co., are 24ft. 8in. long, 4ft. 4in. wide, and liin, "thick, and weigh nearly 2 J tons eaoh) all the holes are drilled. The internal parts are of Bowling iron-; and nnr.ii i.rno Tina it.n own separate combustion chamber. These boilers are constructed for a working pressure, of 901b. per square inch, Theenaines aremtenaea to worn constantly at 8,000 indicated TOrse-power, although they ., i,i iWoWnir 10.000 horse-power indicated. The internal arrangements, '' for the. comfort and convenience of the omcers,. orew, anu pusuBUKoin, w this huge floating palace, are -to be of the most elaborate description. There are two large smoking , ... .... . J J fUlnA i.r saloons, wmcn wui ue nigniy ueuuriueu uu in the most approved style, eaoh saloon having a epamte entrance. In the after deck-house there is a commodious saloon, which is to be furnished in .the most elegant, manner as a lounge for tho ladies. The upper saloon, or drawing-room, for the use of passengers, is a handfome apartment in the form of a wide gallery, with lounges round the sides, aud a largo rectangular, opening into tha dininewoem below. Above this opening is a largo sky-, light richly ornamented. At the foro end of . this saloon will be placed a grand piano, aad at the aftor end is tho staircase leading to the dinmgrpom.

Special trains were run from Liverpool. Carlisle, Whitehaven, and many other plaoes, and large numbers of visitors came to see the huge ship glide into the water. Prom an. early, hour, in the morning people were to be seen wending their' way towards the ship-yard, , and long before eleven o'clock, the hour fixed lor the launoh, orowds of people had taken up a position on the north 6ide'.of ' Old Barrow Island or oh Walney Island, where a good-view, of the launch, .could- bo, qbtained. In; the' ship-yard, in front' and at eaoh side of the bow of the vessel an, ' extensive platform had .been ereoted for the oxcoinihodation of tho invited guests, among whom were the following : Lord JIuncaster, Colonel the Hon. . Stanley, MJP., and Lady Constance Stanley, Sir James and Lady Bamsden, Mr. Frederick Bamsdon, Mr. 0. Inmau, Mr. Langton, Mr. A. Hattou Birley, and Mr. fm. Hobart, directors of the Inman Company ; Mr. Ernest Inman and Mr. P. A. Cochrane, manasrers of theluman Company ; Mr. Greaves, of the' White Star Line; Mr. W. B. MT'AlUstor, of tho National Lino;' Mr. R. G. Allan, of tho Allan Line; Mr. H. Laird (Mayor of Birkenhead), and many other ladies mid centlemen. The arrangements for the launch were of the simplest .possible description. Bemembering the mishaps which attended the launching of the Great Eastern, the company were determined to do all that skill could devise to ensure that the ceremony should be successful. The "cradle" was more than ordinarily strong, and the "ways" were of very considerable width, thore being three high baulks of 'timber in width on each side. In front of the platform was a small guillotine suspended by a blue ribbon. On this bemg'Cut with scissors by the lady who had to perform the ceremony, it was expected that the . knife would fall and sever two ropes, whioh were attached to four weights suspended "in long wooden boxes two at each side'of the bow. These weights, falling, were intended to knock away tho " shores-" whioh held the vessel on the stocks, and it should then begin to slip iuto the water. Supposing, however, that it did not move, there were three powerful hydraulio jacks which could be brought into operation. The day was all that could be desired for such a ceremony. The suu shone brightly, aud signs of pleasure or happiness were depicted on every face ; but, unfortunately ,"the joy was marred and turned into sorrow by a sad accident which occurred on the upper deck of the vessel. Shortly after eleven o'clock, while every ono was waiting patiently to seo Lady Constance Stanley dash a bottle of ohampagne against tho bow of the vessel, by way of christening it, and cut with Bilver scissors the little bit of blue ribbon which might , bo said to hold the great ship in its place', a sudden explosion, similar to that caused by tho firing- of a largo gun, was heard. IFor a moment it was difficult to realise what had occurred, but looking up one saw large sections of a boiler in the air, aud some policemen, workmen, and visitors narrowly escaped being struck by fragments of the f alhng iron. Some were wetted by the water, whioh, however, by its descent had been cooled. A feeling of heaviness seemed, to take possession of every heart, and the question as to whether any one was hurt, which rose to every lip, was quickly answered by the appearance of a workman at the top of the gangway, carrying a lad on his shoulder, whose face was covered with blood. Others quickly followed, with faces blackened or scalded, leaning on the arms of their comrades for support. But those who had been most severely injured had to be lifted with more care, and they were the last to be brought down the gangway, and as they wero carried past the platform, one or two, whose faces were covered with handkerchiefs seemed to be beyond all medical aid. Frominouiries afterwards made it was elicited that a vertical tubular eugiiieand boiler had been plaoedon the deck of thevessel at the port sido with the view of furnishing power to work tho WindlasB and anchor. Steam was up, and some of the men who were working on tho ship say that the safety-valve had just been oiled ; but the cause of tho accident has not yot been ascertained. When the explosion occurred the boiler itself was carried above the ship and across the yard in a southerly direction a distance of fully 500 feet, and there it embedded itself in the sand. The funnel or chimney of the boiler was carried in the same direction, but some of tho iron plates found thoir way over the other side of the ship. A large number of workmen .were on board at the time, and one poor fellow, named Henry "Welch, 24 years of age, a foreman plater, who lived at 71, Eamsden Dock Cottages, was blown up into the air, and fell a distance of 60 feet at least between the City of Rome and a steamer in course of conBtruotiou adjoining. He wa3 found to be dead when he waspicked up. John C. Lucas, 25 years of nge, who resided at 61, Hall-street, was soverely lacerated about the head and body, and he died soon after his admission to the North LonBdale Hospital. Thos. Walker, 17, who lived at Bath-street, was also severely injured about the head and body, one or both of his legs being broken. He died in tho hospital a short time after the accident. Tho live:! of other three men are also despaired of, namely, Patrick Keenan, 35 years of age, living at 58, Albert-street ; Bobert Hamilton, 33 years, hying at 8, Great Devonshire Buildings ; and Henry Collis, 36 years of age, living at 86, Buccleuch-street, all being very severely injured. Jas. Smith, 16 years of age, residiug at 56, Smeaton-strect ; Hugh Barr, 20 years of age, of 6, Great Devonshire Buildings ; J. Bailey, 35 years, living at 14, Great Walney-road ; and William Dobson, 30 years, living at 59, Sutherland-street, were also injured, but not seriously. Mr. Clarke, of the firm of Messrs. Clarke and Stimrlfinlrl. nf Lohrlnn. now encased in erecting a large floating aud depositing dock at Barrow, had a very narrow escape, as ne was stunuiug near uno ua wio mou rm-Aivnrl Bfirinns iniuries. The explosion took place iu immediate proximity to the large platform, on which at the time were a large number of the sueBts invited to bo present atthe ceremony, .but they did not sustain any injury. .4-T-his lamentable, accident caused -some delay in., the launching of the Vessel, but those in charge of the arrangements were also anxious that the tide should be pretty high before the signal was given, as fears were entertained that owing to her length, and the impetus with which she would enter the water she might be embedded in a sand bank at the opposite side of the channel, bnortiy ooiore noon Xlieio wna neara, All around them and boloiy, Tho sound at hammers, blow on Mow, KiibckiDfl away the ehorea'and spnrs. Commencing' at the stern of the vessel, the workmen wrufhiallv did their dutv. and by a quarter-past twelve the only shores which held her in her place were those above which the weights were attached. ' Then Lady Constance Stanley, led forward by Sir James Bamsdeu, the managing riii-Mtor of th e com pan v; .took hold of the ribbons appended to the bottle of champagne which hung from tho bow, and dashed it against the vessel's side, at the same time naming it the " City of Borne." Approaching the small guillotine, she cut the ribbon, the knife fell and the ropes were severed, the weights suspended at each side of the bow knocked the shores away, a gentle touch was given with the hydraulio jacks Ana aeoi snosrarai Sho Btorts,h.e moves, she seems to feol , Tho thrill ot Ufa along her keel, And, epurninEr "with her foot the ground, With one exulting, jojous bonna fiho leans into the ocean's arms ! A slight motion was perceptible as soon as the weights had fallen, and in 48i B.ecouds the noble vessel was afloat. Immediately on leaving the ways her. course was checked by two heavy' anchors embedded in tho ground at each side, and weighted, by .very .heavy cable chains. These, however, she dragged for some distance. As soon as her bow was in the water two immense anchors were thrown out in order to bring her up. As tho ship moved off enthusiastic cheers were raised, and 'these were renewed again and again. Immediately after the ceremony between two and three hundred ladies trad gentlemen partook of luncheon, pro-vidfid hvthe directors of thecomuanv in one 'of the large rooms atthe works. Sir James BjOISDEN, who presided, pro posed the toast of The Uueens" which waB duly honoured. Tha Chairman next TroTjdsed "Success to the Citv of Bome and tha Xmuan Steamship Company," and Mr. Cuables Inman responded.

Mr. John Fell, J.P., one of the directors of the company, and. Colonel the Hon. F. Stahley, acknowledged the toast. During the course of tho proceedings two or three of the' speakers noticed wren --aeep regret - ami -ueep sorrow," the aosenco . or, several genuemen, out no reference was made to the terrible accident whioh had 'thrown three households into mourning, and brought suffering into a number of others. It is expected that the City of - Borne will be ready for sea by next October. The Launch or the Poltphemot. Tho arrangements for the launch of the powerful steel armour-plated ram torpedo ship Polyphemus, which takes place at Chatham Dockyard th'M (Wednesday) afternoon, were nf tha new shin, whioh is utterlv . unlike anvthine .hitherto seen in the Boyal Navy; more than the, usual amount of interest is taken in the launch, and an immense crowd of spectators is expected to be present; to. witness the ceremony. ' For the accommodation of those visitors who have received special cards of invitation, a gallery has been erected at the head of the building-slip from which the Polyphemus will be launched, and this will be nanabls of accommodating several hundred spectators. The ceremony of ohristening the vessel will be performed by Mrs. Trevelyaa, the wife of Mr. 0. O. Trevelyan, M.P. ' - CATTLE DISEASE. An Order in Council prohibits the removal of animals into the borough of Derby nnd parish of Osmaston without a license, but the order will not apply to animals shown at the forthcoming Boyal Agricultural Society's Show. An area, comprising, the parish of Preston, m the petty sessional division of Middle Holderness, is declared to be an area infected with foot-and-mouth disease. A furtlier notice has been issued from the Office of the Agent-General for Victoria, stating that in consequence of the prevalence of foot-and-mouth disease in England, the introduction of stock from this country into Victoria remains strictly prohibited in the terms of Section 6 of the Order in Counoil of Jaly 7th, 1379.

Withy and and Co., of the West Hartlepool Shipyard, on. account of the refusal of their employers to grant an advance of bd. :per ,daj on the present scale of wages 4s. 6d. The Strike of Dock Labotjb.ebs at Hotx. In consequence of tie-strike of dock labourers, there has been no stoppage in the disqharge of cargoes. It has teen Btated that at' least 1,000 labourers have struck work, but this number is open to question. The majority of those at work oh board the vessels in the docks are regular hands, and very few fresh men have had to be put on. Yesterday, atthe Hull Police-court, Mr. T. W. Hearfield, soucitor applied to his Worship for a summons against one i oi : tne dock labourers at present on strike. He stated that on Monday evening a Bailor was at work on board a steamer and a large number of the men on Btvike went alongside and begau to abuso him by calling him " knobstick, and other epithets. A few minutes afterwards a female came along, who wished to speak to the man at work, and no came ashore. Some. twenty or thirty of the labourers surrounded him as he commenced talking to the woman, and at length one of them aime'd three blows at him with a Btick, which he managed to ward off. The ' same man then kicked him severely, and rushed into the crowd. He (Mr. HearSeld) might state that there were hundreds of men ready to work, but they were intimidated by the threatening- attitude of some of the men on strike. His Worship observed that on Monday evening a man came to him to ask his advice, stating that he wished to work, but that he dare not, as he was afraid of beiDg set upon by the men on Btrike. His Worship granted a summons. The . Impekdwg Btwke of Telegraph Cleeks. A''foeeting of the Leeds telegraph clerks was held at the Green Dragon Hotel last night. The meeting was an enthusiastic one, and indignation was expressed at the present position of affairs and tho absence of a prospect of settlement. A Senior Clerk presided. Correspondence and telegrams - were read from London, Liverpool, Bristol. Birminsham, Leicester, Manchester, Hull, and other large centres. A telegram from London announced that a conference had been held between Borne members of the London committee and Members of Parliament, and that it hod been decided that Mr. Machver should put questions to the Postmaster-General on Thursday', and in tha event of unsatisfactory replies being given, ho would move the adjournment of the House in order to bring tho whole question, before the attention of Parliament. Tho first resolution was moved by a Clerk, on behalf of the committee. Ho said it behoved the men to stand firm to their pledge to support the conierence in its decision, whatever that decision might be. If the conference considered it best for the interest of the clerks to strike-fapplause) then it was the duty of every man to lay down his work and strike. (Applause.) Let it be understood that there was no hesitancy, that the men had full confidence in the justice of their . claims, and were prepared to fight the battle to the bitter end. (Applause.) There was no fear of a failure like the last strike. Then, although only 250 men left their work, the cost to the Department was nearly 80,000. Now, the case was different. Instead of 250, 6.000 of the staff the flower of the service were ready, aye, and willing, to do that which they considered right and pfbpor to do. (Applause.) After 13 years of injustice, of appeals, aud of procrastination on tho part of the Department, tho time had arrived whon something must be done. (Applause.) If tho Postmaster-General had a desire to do what was right and fair, let him do as he had been time after time advised by the press aEd the clerks throw off the yoke of post-office officialism, and, appealing to his own sense of justice, concede to the clerks those claims which he could not rise in his place in the House of Commons and say were either unfair or unjust. (Loud applause.) He proposed " That this meeting endorses the action taken and tho sentiments expressed at the meeting of tho London telegraph clerks on the 11th inst., and pledges itself to support I .. .. u T,;l, mo,. T,n Aanljan .,nn nft thet fnrthn.nnnnf? national conference to be held at Liverpool." This reso- DnAnA ni mrrmri flmifUfc continued VYUQ ogwuuvu. , cheering. Another Clerk moved "That this meeting scheme of revision which does not recognise the status of ,.i -1 , i 1 ; U nnimonAnf "liuil Sflrw, of the Crown, os set forth by the Telegraphs Act, 1868." This was also seconded and carried unani-mouslv. A ' further resolution . was adopted, as follows :" That this meeting approves of the action cessation of overtime work, aud hereby resolves, upon a time duty in conjunction with the other large offices. It was resolved to obtain further counsel's opinion on the legality of the claims made, and money was voted for that purpose. Other questions arising on the foregoiug resolutions were decided, and a vote of thanks to tho Chairman brought the meeting to a close. THE LEEDS TRAMWAYS. TO THE EDJ.TOES OF THE LEEDS MERCURY. Gentlemen, I understand there is to be a special meeting of the Town Council to-morrow (Wodnesday), to reconsider its recent vote, re tbe Tramways Company's new scheme. I hope tha Council will not sanction any application for further powers until the companv show their willingness to keep faith with the public. 5Tour correspondent, J. F. C, in Monday's issue, mentions the caso of Chapel-town. There is no valid reason why the cars should be stopped at Cross Boads, to the . great inconvenience, annoyance, aad loss of tho population living beyond. The cars used to be run to the terminus. Ko doubt it i3 a trifle cheaper and more convenient to tbe company to stop them at. ..Cross Roads,- because from' that7 point the journey out and in can be performed easily in an hour: To run to tho terminus would involve a loss of ten minutes on the double journey, therefore the public convenience is ignored, aud house property depreciated in value. Tho Moortown people have not pleasant? things to say about the treatment they havo received in the past ; and the Mcanwnod-road people would tell you that they owe their present improved and cheaper service to the enterprise of a ' bus proprietor no thanks to the company. The whole case against it may be summed up thus : Having obtained practically a monopoly of certain roads by promising to perform certain services, the company refuse to continue any service whioh has proved inconvenient to it, or not sufficiently remunerative. Iu those circumstances, I think tho Council would be justified m refusing for the present to grant -any fresh powers to tho company. I enclosemy card, and remain, Gentlemen, yours respectfully, Juue Htn, looi. jn.jit:&ij-ajjuaxii.vii. HEALTH 01? ASKEEN. TO THE EDITORS OF THE LEEDS MERCURY.' Gentlemen, A paragraph as to tho unhealthy state of Askern and Smeaton appeared in the Mercury of Saturday last. I beg to assure you and the publio that it was without the slightest foundation in faot. I have ascertained from the Medical Sanitary Officer that there is not a single cose of, fever iu either place. This and other similar reports are doing great injustice and considerable harm to the inhabitants, particularly of Askern, as this is the season when they hope to have a great influx of visitors ; but such false statements, if uncontradicted, would keep tho baths, iodging-houses, and hotels empty. Yours faithfully, G. E. KENT, Chairman of the Local Board of Health. HiU House, Askern, June. 13th, 1881. The New Valuation of Dewsbttry. Last night'a meeting of tradesmen and owners of property in Dewsbury was held in the dSBembly-room of the Royal Hotel for tho purpose of taking action in reference to the new valuation of the township, and which it is alleged is excessive. Mr. Benj. Buhner was voted to the chair. It was resolved to call a general public meeting of ratepayers and show how oppressive and unjust ia the new valuation. A committee of twolve tradesmen was appointed to act on behalf of thope who intend to tako action against the valuation, and it wiis also agreed that two orthe number Bhould wait upon .tho Assessment Committee';and deliver a formal protest against the new poor rate so far as concerned the basis of valuation. Mr. Btjiit, j&.P., and VAcbiwATiow.. Mr. Thomas Burt, M.P., was fined 20s. and costs, at the Newcastle Police-court yesterday, for disobeying an order -to vaccinate his child. The magistrates said they, must protect the public, and they had, therefore, no other course but to fine the defendant. Arotio Exploration. Mr. Smith intends to start in' a short time ' on another Arctic expedition in his steam yacht Eira, which has completed its fitting-out at Peterhead. Mr. Smith has already made three voyages to the Arctic regions, and this time he purposes going as far possible along the shore of Franz-Joseph Land. X OCAL BOARD for the DISTRICT of WHIT-fiJ WOOD.
