Some apprehension which has existed among the female staff of the Central Telegraph Office as to the intention of the Department to im- pose upon them a new duty of 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. has been officially dispelled. On Wednesday a deputation of three female members of the London branch of the Postal Telegraph Clerks' Association waited upon the Controller of Telegraphs, and received from him an assurance that no alteration of their duties in the direc- tion indicated was contemplated. An accident, resulting in the death of the engine driver and injuries to 20 passengers, occurred on Wednesday on the London, Brighton, and South Coast Railway. The 8.18 train from Eastbourne was running at a high rate of speed between Mayfield and Heathfield, when it left the Jine at a curve. There is aa embankment some 60ft. above a meadow at this point. Down the embankment the train rolled. Fortunately, its fall was slightly broken by the telegraph apparatus, and to this is attributed the fact that none of the passengers were killed. The engine-driver, who jumped off his engine, was crushed under the falling coaches. THE PORT ERIN MYSTERY.'—The Yorkshire Evening Post states that the household furniture of Mr. George Johnson, of Hudders- field, was sold by the Sheriff on Friday, for costs incurred in the recent action based on an insurance policy held by Thomas Johnson, and payment on which Mr. George Johnson, as his brother's executor, sought to enforce. Thomas Johnson, it will be remem- bered, was alleged to have been drowned at Port Erin more than a year ago, but the arbi- trator held that it had not been proved to his satisfaction that Johnson was drowned, and ordered the executors to pay the costs of the arbitration. The costs amount, it is understood, to about £ 1,000. OUR TRADE WITH CHINA. On Friday, Messrs. Neville and Bell, the cotton trade experts who joined the Commercial Mission sent to China by the Blackburn Chamber of Commerce, returned home. In the course of conversation, Mr. Neville stated that the mission had thoroughly justified itself by placing at the disposal of its promoters a vast amount of valuable trade information. The result of their efforts would be to give a much- needed impetus to the Lancashire cotton trade, which is now in a very bad way. Mr. Neville spoke in terms of high praise of the commercial honesty of the Shanghai merchants, which, he said, compared very tavourably with our own.
