SUNDAY CLOSING. A town's meeting, called by the Mayor of Man- chester, in compliance with a requisition, was held on Tuesday forenoon in the Town Hall, to consider the subject of the closing of public-houses on Sunday. Mr. W. T. Windsor moved the first resolution, which expressed satisfaction at the great moral and social advantages that had accrued to the people of Scot- land and Ireland from the law that prohibits the sale of intoxicants on Sunday, affirmed that an overwhelming and rapidly increasing majority had for years demanded a like measure for England, and called upon the Government to grant early and suffi- cient facilities to Mr. J. C. Stevenson that he may get the English Sunday Closing Bill passed this Session. The resolution was passed-unanimously. A resolution was also passed thanking the members of Parliament who secured a triumphant majority for the Bill on its second reading last Session. It was afterwards re- solved to send copies of the resolution to the Premier, and the members for Manchester, and to forward a petition in favour of the Bill for presentation to Par- liament.
