VISIT OF BRITISH WORKMEN TO BOULOGNE. The Correspondent of the Daily News, telegraphing from Boulogne on Monday night, says :— "Twelve hundred British worimen, members of friendly societies, thanks to the liberality of the South Eastern Railway directors, came over free to-day in four of the company's steamers, with their parapher- nalia of scarfs, badges, and banners, and were received by 500 representatives of French societies, who con- ducted them in procession to the Tintelleries Gardens. Six eemi-circular tab es had been previously arranged thsre, with 800 bottles of wine, biscuits, &c,, and a vin d'honneur was offered to the English visitors lemonade being provided for the Good Templars An interchange of speeches took place in both latiguates, full of expressions of welcome, goodwill and fellowship. The speeches were brought to a close by two of the English bands marching off to play an aubade before the residences of Dr. Orion, the acting mayor, and M. Douault, President of the Société de Bienfaisance, who have taken the lead in this interna- tional demonstration. During the afternoon the Soci £ t £ Mnsicale gave a concert in honour of the Eng- lish visitors in the gardens of the Etablissement. At ten o'clock the excursionists embarked. The jetties were illuminated with Bengal lights as the steamers left the harbour. When the last vessel passed the pier head two showers of rockets were let tff amidst much cheering from hosts and guests. The Boulogne friendly societies are to visit Folkestone on Whit Monday."
