FEMALE SLAVERY.—SHIRT AND STAY-MAKING. —An enormous quantity of these articles are made in the two parishes of Portsmouth and Porlsea, to the manifest detriment of the poor-rates and the morals of the females employed, and which detri- ment and demoriilisation arise from the infamous and unjustly-low prices given for the work per- formed.
