It shows that, from 1860 to 1865, the number of officers and men employed on the West Coast of Africa (exclusive of natives) has varied from 1,333 to 1,528. Jn the same time 677 of these officers and men have either died or been inva- lided, and 78 of them were killed and wounded whilst on duty there. The total amount of prize money taken was £74,042 6s 9d, the number of slavers captnred was 61, and the number of slaves released 6,146, RECOVERY OF A STOLEN CHILD IN BRISTOL.— One would have thought in this the 19th century that the days of kidnapping children for (he pur- pose of sending them round with beggars to ex- cite the compassion of the benevolent had alto- gether died out, but we are sorry to say that a case of child stealing recently discovered, shows that the nefarious practice is not altogether ex- tinct. A man giving the name of Thomas Mundy has been remanded until Monday next by the ma- gistrates of Folkestone on the charge of child- stealiug. It appears that on the 17th of August, 1864, a person named, we believe, Hazard, resid- ing in or near Folkestone, bad his child, a little boy two years old, stolen from him. Inquiries were made in every direction by the grief-stricken parents, but without success. Mundy was at that time staying in the neighbourhood, and was a professional beggar, and suspicion rested upon him, but he disappeared, and nothing was heard of him until a few days ago, when he again made his appearance in the district, soliciting alms, accompanied by a little girl. The mother of the stolen child at once recognised 'lie man, and gave him into custody. From him it was elicited that his wife was living in Bristol, and had two children with her, and it was immediately con- jectured that one of these children might be the one so long sought after. Accordingly, Mr Superintendent Green communicated with Mr Superintendent Hancock on the subject, and trans- mitted to him a description of the child at the time it WAS stolen and the marks by which it may be identified. St. Jude's being the great resort for vagrants, the case was placed in the hands of Mr Inspector Woollacott, who, on Tuesday evening, found the woman Mundy in a house in Lamb- street, with two children, one of them being a little boy, whose appearance corresponds with the description given, allowance being made, of course for bis age and growth. The poor little lad, who appears a most intelligent boy, was taken home by Mr Wollacott, and n^w remains at his Jhoms until the autharities ofFolkeston are communicated with. THE TAILORS' STRIKE. — Mr Edward Lewis attended at the Marlborough-street Police Court, on Friday, and, addressing Mr Knox, said Sir, I am instructed to make an application to you under a statute but little known because seldom put in force in police-courts, but of infinite importance in the case of disputes between employers and operatives. The Act is one passed in the 5th year of the reign of King George IV.. and is intituled An Act to consolidate and amend the Jaws relating to the arbitration of disputes be- tween masters and workmen,' and tbe 3rd section provides a remedy for the settlement of certniii disputes specified in the Act of a character equally fair to employers and employed. The category o disputes includes inter alia disagreements respectf ing the price to be paid for work done, whether such disputes shall happen or arise respecting the payment of wages as agreed upon, or the hours of work. And the remedy provided by the statute is twofold, according to whether the d'sputauts 011 either side agree to submit the question at issue to arbitration, or in the case of one side declin- ing to submit the matter in dispute to reference. The latter contingency is the only one to which need direct your worship's attention because, in the case which forms the subject-matter of the present application, those against whom this ap- plication is directed have peremptorily refused to submit the question at issue to the arbitration of a magistrate, although t'ny client has requested them to do so. The latter portion of the 3rd section of the Act, however, provides a mode of determining disputes in the case of one side dis- playing obstinacy. I tenacts that it shall be lawful for any justice or magistrate, and such justice or magistrate is required, on complaint. made before him, and proof that application has been made to the person or persons against whom such cause of complaint has arisen to sett!e such dispute, and that the same has not been settled, upon such complaint to summon before him such person or persons, on some day not exceeding three days, and upon the hearing of such sum- mons, if satisfaction be not made to the party complaining, it shall be lawful for such justice, and he is required, at the request of either party, to nominate arbitrators or referees to settle the matter in dispute, and such justice shall then and there propose not less-than four nor more than six persons, one-half of whom shall be master manufacturers, and the other half workr; en, from whcm the master engaged in such dispute shall n choose one, and the workmen one other, which two persons shall have full power to hear and finally determine such dispute. Bv virtue of the provisions ot this Act, I have to request that vou will cause summons to issue against a firm of tailors, in Regent-street, citing them to appear within three days to answer the complaint which. II shall then prefer on behalf of my client, a journeyman tailor, touching a dispute relating to matters specified in the statute upon which I found the present application. Mr Knox said, that when sitting at Worship-street Police-court he had much experience, under the Silk Act, of this class of cases, and never found they came to anything, as it appeared impossible to get an im- partial decision. The application was an impor- tant one, and if Mr Lewis would give notice to tbe other side, as the matter might as weii be argued at first as at last, he would then stat" his de- cision. The summonses applied for by Mr Sleigh, on Thursday, at the Marlborough-street Police t Court, were eleven in number. They have been served by the officer of the court, and the Opera- served by the officer of the court, and the Opera- tives' Union has taken steps to provide bail in case of committal, it is noticeable that, the sum- monses bear the date of the Easter Monday meet- ing at the Albambra. If the defendants are com- imitted, an attempt will be made to remove the cases into the Court of Queen's Bench. A cir- cular is about to be addressed to the various trades, asking for special contributions to a defence fund.
