PARLIAMENTARY GOSSIP. [BY AN INDEPENDENT WELSH MEMBER.] It cannot be denied that the Government with the best possible intentions often betray a singular want of tact, and put the fidelity of their supporters to a severe test. No better illustration of this can be given than the intro- duction of the Parks' Bill now before the House of Com- mons. There seems to have been no special necessity for a Bill at all. The Conservative Government in 186607 had got themselves into trouble and incurred great un- popularity by a similar Bill, which was thought seriously to invade popular liberty. And yet, in the teeth of this, the Liberal Government thrust this measure on the House, interfering with the freedoms of public meetings, attaching heavy penalties to small offences, and giving large powers to arrest without warrant. The opposition is led by Mr. VERNON HARCOURT, who is a sort of stermy-petrel of politics, delighting iR a tempest, and animated by no very friendly feelings towards the Govern- ment. But there are many who, while not sympathising with his bitterness towards men in office, are obliged to show their disapproval of this blundering Bill. On Thursday night the discussion on this subject led to one ef those scenes in which the house delights, though it does not much contribute to exalt its dignity. It was begun by Mr. GATHORNE HARDY, who thought he saw a good opportunity for making an attack on Mr. GLADSTONE. It is very evident that there is more of personal feeling between these two gentlemen than any others in the House. One can understand why there might be some soreness on the part of Mr. GLADSTONE seeing that Mr. HARDY supplanted him in the affections of the Uni- versity of Oxford. But why the latter should be so wrath- jul it is difficult to discover. And yet, generally he is the aggressor, and very unwisely so, for though a man of con- siderable ability, he is no match for Mr. GLADSTONE, who invariably lays him on his back, and makes him cut a rather pitiable figure. Under ordinary circumstances his right honourable leader rushes to his rescue, and plays what Lord PALMERSTON called the part of a" judicious bottle- hulder." Such was the case on Thursday night. In a manner perfectly unexpected, and without any apparent provocation, Mr. HARDY, like an angry bull, put his head down and went full butt at the Prime Minister. The instant he showed fight, Mr. GLADSTONE leaped into the arena like a Spanish matador, and in a moment had his knife deep in the quivering side of his assailant. No man, he said, in that House, knew so well as the right hon. gentleman how to impart the acid and venom of party spirit into their discussions. And he went on dealing blow after blow to his adversary, who sat trying to laugh, but with the wrong side of his mouth, and shaking himself in his seat like a New- foundland dog whioh has just come out of water, as is Mr. HARDY'S manner when he is excited. To those who sat opposite him, it was clear from the working of Mr. DISRAELI'S countenance, which is usually as impassive as a mask, that he meant mischief. Mr. HARDY also cast a sort of appealing side-look at him, and when Mr. GLADSTONE sat down, he sprang on his feet, and was hailed with a loud cheer by his friends. He did not seem particularly happy in his hits, except the last, in which he charged the Prime Minister, when the Con- servative Government were trying to carry a Bill through the House, for the protection of the Parks, with having sat there in sullen silence, and then going and addressing a tumultuous mob from the balcony of his own residence. To this Mr. GLADSTONE gave instant and flat contradiction, and, in terms which, in old duelling times, might have led to serious consequences, he said that there was in the charge not the shred or shadow of truth, and then sat down. But, as if feeling the language was rather too strong, he rose again immediately and added something about its having no foundation in fact. While this duel was going on the House shouted and roared with de- light. But there were many who, while joining in the laughter,—for "not to laugh exceeded all power of face, felt that the scene they witnessed was not very edifying. It was, no doubt, as amusing as a comedy, but surely it is not desirable that the leading statesmen of the House of Commons should act as comedians for the entertain- ment of the members. There is great dissatisfaction among the advanced Liberals at the enormity of the military estimates, and several amendments for a reduction have been already placed on the notice paper.
OVERWORKED DRESSMAKERS. To the Editor of the SOUTH WALES DAILY NEWS. SIR,-With your courtesy and kind permission I beg to complain, through the medium of your excellent paper, of a dreadful evil-namely, that of 12 or 14 hours' duty, which myself and other young ladies in the drapery as well as other places of business, have to perform daily. The "Factory Act," sir, I suppose is not in operation in Wales Is it because we Welsh women are fonder of work than our neighbouring sisters ? Oh what miseries do these excessively long hours inflict upon us. Our lives are indeed nothing better than those of slaves, and sick- ness and premature death are to be attributed to them. It is gratifying to find that active steps have and are now being taken by the working men of Great Britain towards getting the nine hours' movement into vogue. Would to goodness that some considerate person or per- sons would take our case in hand, and thereby relieve us from such imposition and slavery.—I am. yours respect- fully, A DRESSMAKER Llanelly. ———
COLLIERS AND THEIR EMPLOYERS. To the Editor of the SOUTH WALES DAILY NEWS. SIR,—When the late strike was pending- several attempts were made by masters and men to bring about a recon- ciliation, and the Press availed itself of every opportunity to make known a seeming disposition by the contending parties to that effect. Several times we then read of the avidity of the colliers to put down every petty grievance occuring amongst door boys and hauliers, and the overmen or managers, so that the possibility of these grievances being removed without stopping the working of the whole pit could and would be established. Propositions of this nature was received by friends from both sides with the greatest satisfaction. But, alas with all these assurances we find the same men adopting the old course again, and thereby inflicting heavy loss on the masters in spite of all that has been said and done. Last Thursday the hauliers would not proceed to work at the Cwmpennar Pits there- fore about 500 men were kept idle, and the raising of between six or seven hundred tons of coal lost to the employers. On Friday the door boys of one of the same pits were out again. If the demands of the workmen are just and right, the Press can defend them but if other- wise, then public opinion must meet out its censure by the same means. AN OLD WORKMAN.
A public meeting at Exeter, on Saturday, rejected the recommendations of the Endowed School Commis- sioners with reference to educational endowments in Exeter. COMPULSORY EDUCATION.—Orders of her Majesty in Council are published in the Gazette on Friday sanc- tioning bye-laws for the compulsory attendance of chil- dren at school, made with the approval of the Educa- tion Department under the 74th section of the Elemen- tary Education Act, 1870, by the School Board of Llanbeblig, (Carnarvon). Perhaps not within living memory have the leading thoroughfares of London presented a more animated appearance than was the case last Sunday. The whole line of route on which the Royal cortege will pass was thronged by a crowd often so dense as to render circu- lation difficult. The principal points of interest, and observation were those in which visible preparations were being made for the National Thanksgiving.
THE STATE VISIT TO ST. PAULS. Parliamentary affairs, the American difficulty, and the Tichborne trial—notwithstanding that these matters have entered on new and interesting phases—are all eclipsed by the interest manifested in the Thanksgiving service and procession. If the Prince of Wales had been leading conquering armies for months, as the Crown Prince of Prussia recently did, he could not have had a grandeur welcome prepared for him. Pennens floating from tall masts and affixed to every lamp-post, triumphal arches, festoons of flowers lining the streets, flags waving from housetops and windows, or strung across the roadways, thousands upon thousands of extemporised seats .in open spaces or in shop windows, balconies, and roofs thronged with spectators, immense crowds on the pavements, exuberant and deafening cheers, with an unpre- cedented illumination will, to-day, be the externals of the royal procession, to say nothing of such ordinary manifestations as bells ringing and bands playing. The excitement and the enthusiasm are now approach- ing fever heat, and the partial dampers that were thrown on the affair by the intelligence of the return of the local affection in the Prince's hip, and by the unfavourable change of the weather at the end of the week, alone prevented all London from getting into a frenzied condition. We trust that the weather will be fine to-day, that the Prince will be able to attend, that no serious accidents will occur, and that when we lay before our expectant readers, to-morrow, an ample record of the proceedings, we shall have to chronicle a complete success. The subjoined document, issued by the Lord Chamberlain, will afford some idea of the state procession — OFFICIAL PROGRAMME.

LONDON CORN MARKET —MONDAY. WHEAT.—There has been no feature of importance in the grain trade at Mark-lane to-day. A limited supply of English wheat has been on sale, and the quality has again been indifferent There has been a thin attendance of millers, and a disposition has been evinced to refrain from operating beyond actual requirements. The actual business concluded has been very moderate, but prices have been unaltered. With foreign wheat the market has been moderately supplied. The trade has been quiet for both Russian and American parcels on former terms. BARLEY. The supply of barley has been moderate Malting produce has been steady in value, with a quiet trade. Grinding sorts have been dull and drooping. MALT has sold on former terms. OAT.Foil average supplies of oats have been on the stands Sales have progressed slowly in all qualities, and prices have ruled in favour of purchasers. BKANS have been dull, and without alteration. PEAs.-In peas the business doing has been trifling, at about late rates. MAIZE has been dull, at previous quotations. FLOUR.—The flour market has been quiet, at last Mon- day's prices. ————

ABERDARE. PRESENTATION.—An interesting meeting of Forester and a number of friends took place at the Commercia Inn, on Saturday night; Canon Jenkins presided. The object of the meeting was to give a practical recognition of the services of Bro. Lewis Humphries, Secretary to Court "United Trade" for fifteen years. The presen- tation consisted of an emblem of the Order of Foresters, beautifully written and framed. Upon it was the fol- lowing inscriptionPresented by Court "United Trade," No. 5,057, A.O.F., to Bro. Lewis Humphries, for valuable services as Secretary. And also a silver medal, of very elegant design and workmanship; upon this also were emblems and an inscription. The medal was presented by Miss Hosgood. Mr. Humphries thanked the Court in suitable terms. Addresses were delivered by Mr. William Davis, visitor; Chief Ranger J. Williams, Mr. Lloyd, Gwladgawr, and the Revs. J. Joseph George and Canon Jenkins. The meeting was entertained at intervals by the Abernant Glee Choir, who gave some excellent music; other songs were also given, and a very pleasant evening was passed. THE LATE DROWNING CASE. There appears to be some difficulty in identifying the body of the man found in the Cynon on Friday last, owing to the advanced state of decomposition. The friends of a man named Price, who has not been seen for a fortnight, believe the body to be his. Price was arrested in the case of the man thrown down a pit naked a few years since. THE WANT OF A COLLIER'S FUND —A remarkable able instance of the unfortunate rejectioa of the offer of the masters for forming a permanent accident fund has just occurred at Llwydcoed. A poor fellow at the end of the week was brought home from his work quite dead. He leaves behind him no less than nine children and his widow. It is not easy to imagine the suffering that may have been averted from this bereaved family, by such a fund as the one proposed. A brother of the deceased was killed on the same spot a few years ago. Both were engaged at the time in blasting.
