Terry and Son, of Collingwood-street, Biaekfriars- road, was summoned before the magistrates at the Southwark Polioe-court, by Thomas Spamwick, a jourrejman in their service, for using threatening language to him, and endeavouring to force him to leave their employment. The men at Messrs. Terry and Son's had lately struck on account of their re- fusing to comply with the exorbitant demands made upon them by the rules of the society to which the men belonged.
