Rawlins, W esleyn mtpister^ of Shrewsbury, was drawing near the conclusion of his sermon, he suddenly stopped, looked very fierce around him, and vehemently exclaimed, Now those who have made up their minds to go to heaven stand up," when about two-thirds of the congregation stood up, and the other part had considerable difficulty to refrain from laughing at this disgusting freak.— Shropshire Conser- vative. SAILORS' STRIKE.—Sunderland, Feb. 12.—For some time past the seamen of this port have been dissatisfied with the rate of wages they receive (2L. 10s. or 21. 15s. per month), and they have now commenced a "strike," for the purpose of obtaining 3/. per month. On Friday a body of from 200 to 300 entered the shipbuilding vard of Mr. Hutchinson, at which a vessel was fitting-out lor Canada, to compel the sailors who had shipped at the usual rate of wages to leave their work. After remonstrance had failed, the police were sent for, and the men then peaceably left the yard without accomplishing their object. On the following day a proces- sion, numbering some hundreds of sailors, walked down the High-street, the principal thoroughfare of the town, and had a meeting on the Town-moor. Three or four sailors were spokesmen, and urged their shipmates not to sail for a tarthing less than 3/ and threats were held out, that if any saIlor jpioved a a bJack sheep," he should be tarred and feathered, or otherwise roughly handled- The me. ting separated without coming to any resolution, but those present appeared determined to strike" for the proposed advance. On Tuesday Mr. Wakley, M.P., held an inquest at the Coach and Horses, Welbeck-street, Cavendish-square, on the body of Mr. C. Smith, aged 69, of 7, Park-st. Grosvenor- I square. The deceased was brother of the late gallant Sir Sidney Smith.
