Much depression exists in the Northwich and district chemical trade. On Tuesday night a number of cleaners and firemen at the works of Messrs. Brunner, Mond, & Co., were placed upon short time.

STARTLED ODDFELLows.-An exciting scene was witnessed at Walsingham, Norfolk, on the occasion of the monthly meeting of the local lodge of Oddfellows. The members were assembled in session when suddenly a large paraffin lamp suspended by a chain from the ceiling fell upon the centre of the table, around which the principal officers were transacting business. It rolled from the table on to the floor, and flames at once burst forth as the oil escaped from the reservoir. A scene of con- fusion ensued. The secretary scrambled to secure his books and certificates, while one of the trustees carried off the cash bowls to a place of safety. One of the brethren pulled off his coat and with it attempted to extinguish the now rapidly-spreading flames. Other methods, however, were necessary before the fire was subdued.
