ptzLANCHOMr ACCIDBNT. — A melancholy t accident has occurred in a paper manufac ory at Droogenboecb, near Brussels, through tke bursting of one of the huge boilers in the centre of the building. A number of young girls are employed there, six of I whom were tound lying dead amongst the ruins. Another had been blown into a pond attached to the works, where she was seen struggling in the water, to which fortunate circumstances she owes her life. One of the workmen also is in an alarming state. Two of the poor girls were the children of a widow, entirely dependent on their scanty wages for hersuppoft. She was so horrified when the sad news was brought her that she attempted to commit suicide by throwing her- self into the river, from whence she was happily rescued in time. A STILL-BORN BIRTH IN THE BRIGHTON AouAMm<—At the Brighten Aquarium the sea lioness gave birth to a dead cub (a female). It was noticed last week that she was very restless and savage, and would not permit her young one, born in the Aquarium on the 14th of May last, to approach her. She has been carefully watched day and nigbt by her keeper. On Thursday she refused food for the first time, and it was noticed that she was in great pain, which gradually increased, so that fear was en- tertained as to her own life. Happily, however, all danger is now supposed to be over; she is progressing most favourably, and a few days perfect quietness will, it is hoped, restore her to her usual health. The dead cub has been preserved in spirit, and will be placed in the entrance hall of the Aquarium. FRENCH SOCIALISTS.—The papers found on th ) foreign Socialists have led to domiciliary visits to seven French Socialists, several of them connected w th the Jieveii. Their correspondence was seized, and three of them were apprehended, but released, 0,1 parole, after an examination by the Juge d'ln- itruction. 1 ACCIDENT IN THE xiCTNTING -fIBLD.—During a run with the Dartmoor bounds npar Cornwood, D von, the Commander-in-Chief of the Western Dis- t2 ct, Lieutenant-General the Hon.
