SUPPOSED ATTEMPT TO BLOW UP THE LONDON MANSION HOUSE. About a quarter-past nine o'clock on Friday night in last week, as two young men were parsing through Church-passage at the rear of the Mansion House, they observed a parcel hanging on the kitchen railings. It is stated that attached to this parcel was a coarse sort of fuse or string, which had been steeped in paraffin, the end of which was alight. One of the voung men calling to mind the event of March, 16, 1881, immediately proceeded to look for a policeman the other remained to see if any one ap- proached. A constable having been found was brought to the spot, and afser extinguishing the spark, removed the parcel, which weighed between fifteen and sixteen pounds, and conveyed it to the Upper Thames street Police-station. The contents of the canister were subjected to careful examination on Monday by a gentleman well acquainted with the nature and appearance of the various known explosives. He states that the com- pound consists principally of common blasting powder. He found no trace of nitro-glycerine in any shape, and though the gunpowder had been mixed with another substance, the nature of which was not familiar to him, he ascertained that this latter in- gredient was not of a destructive character.
