DISGRACEFUL RIOT IN FINSBURY. On Monday night a meeting of the supperters of Mr. O'Malley was held at the Berners-hall, Agricultural- hall, which was attended by a very large number of the personal friends and committee-men of the Conservative candidate. These were admitted an hour previously by ticket, but on the chief door being thrown open a "rush" was made by a number of roughs, which threw the meeting into confusion. The place was quickly crowded to excess, and displays of party placards soon led to a general disturbance, and a rush was made to the platform, behind which a portion of the room had been partitioned off to serve as a retiring room. Many of those on the platform were forced down into this, but by dint of much effort the candidate and some personal friends attained it, but no single voice was able to make head against the storm of yells, shouts, and cheers that prevailed, and another rush caused the retreat of Mr. O'Malley and his friends. Many who had before this tried to get out by the side entrance found it bar- ricaded by a noisy, impassable crowd and a music-hall in which a cheapee)ncert was going on, afforded a place' of rest to the more timid. For another hour riot reigned in the large hall.; partitions were overthrown, chairs smashed, and damage done to the damask curtains at the rear of the platfom, and to the staircases, to the extent of £ 30, and not uiftil the gas was turned off, and the .police had cleared tfechall, could it be ascertained that ,very serious injuries 'bad not resulted to many. One young man, who had clambered to the top of the parti- £ iau. with atL-x) fell riilv.it, contrived to limp off.
