A Royal Commission, presided over by Mr. B. Samuelson, M.P., has held a sitting at Sheffield to take evidence on the subject of technical education. The Commissioners first visited the school of art and other institutions, and then took the evidence of the mayor, master cutler, and other merchants and manu- facturers, all of whom spoke strongly in favour of such education, if our manufactures are to hold their own in competition with foreign producers. At Limerick, on Friday night in last week, the back part of a dwelling-house, built in the year 1618, fell, killing a man and his wife. The front portion fell in the early part of the year without causing any per- sonal injury. In the face of the wall which fell on Friday night was discovered a large marble mantel- piece erected in 1633. This had been removed as an article of curiosity, and the operations probably caused the wall tn give way,. The weekly return of metropolitan pauperism shows that in the second week of June there were 86,164 paupers, of whom 50,065 were indoor and 36,099 out- door. This is a decrease of 906 and 481 as compared with the corresponding weeks of 1882 and 1881, but an increase of 1,106 as compared with 1880, The num- ber of vagrants relieved on the last day of the sec' 4'91.
