SINGULAR DEATH.—Amongst the passengers by the Queen of the Isle steam-packet, which arrived on Thursday morn- ing from Douglas, was a poor woman named Kaye, who re- sides in Bispham-street, in this town. She had with her an infant child, which, before she left the packet she heard cry but when she reached home she was utterly amazed on find- ing that the infant was lifeless. It appears that the packet lay a short distance from the pier, and that the woman had to be assisted on shore by a policeman. She had to take a short jump to enable her to reach the shore, and it is supposed that, in her anxiety for the safety of her child, she had pressed it so closely to her body that she smothered it. The inquest on the body was held on Friday.—Liverpool Standard. CHILDREN IN FACTORIES. It was announced by Sir James Graham, in his explanation of the Government plan of education, that he should propose to reduce the hours of wqrking, by children under 13 years of age, in factories, to six hours (or, as some of the papers give it, six and a half hours) in the day. Sir James expressed his opinion that humanity, and a regard to the education of the children, called for this reduction in the hours of labour, and the mill- owners would readily consent to it. On this point the factory inspectors are divided in opinion. We believe Mr. Horner recommends the abridgment of the hours of labour; but Mr. Saunders objects to it, on the ground that by re- quiring double relays of children in each mill, great numbers of children would be trained to employments which, when they arrived at 13 years of age, they could not possibly con- tinue; they would then have to look for new situations.
