FOUR OF THE DIRECTORS OF THIS DIAMONB FUK. COAL COMPANY (LIMITKD) were summoned to the Guildhall Police-eeurt. at the complaint of two of the shareholders, on a charge of having appropriated the money of the company to their own use. It appeared that an action is pending in one of the superior courts against the complainants for an alleged libel, and that in the meantime these proceedings have been brought. The magistrate therefore declined to hear the cam until the civil action is decidfd. THE MASONS' STRIKE.—The masons' strike ij Dot expected to last much longer. It is reported tdikt the master builders do not now know what to do with the numerous masons who have come to London in search of employment, that all the shops are full, and th, t something like 100 men are in London or Ibt' provioefs waiting for work. Wben the strike ends it will be difficult, therefore, to say what will become of the 800 men who are and have been for nearly seven months on strike. HEALTH OF LONDON.—The Registrar-General reports that during this year the death rate in London has been a little higher than in the nineteen large pro- vincial towns from which he obtains returns. Whoop- ing-cough continues to be the most fatal zymotic disease in the metropolis. The deaths from small- pox, he adds, were more numerous than they have jeen since June last.
