THE WAYZGGOSE. Thia annual feast among printers is observed in London. The working men upon these occasions dine with their employers and the heads of depart- ments. Usually the rendezvous is in the outskirts of the metropolis, not far from the sound of Bow hells; to which they are driven in four-in-hands or carriages. This year, however, the employes of Messrs. Cassell, Petter, and Galpin, La Belle Sauvage-yard, Ludgate- hill, determined to try the experiment of a journey to the sea-side. Thus, on Saturday, about 150 men assembled at the Ludgate station for a trip to Margate; these, although only a fraction of the persons employed in the La Belle Sauvage Works, eeceeded the number of former years. Arrived at Margate, the men strolled along the sands, on the cliff, on the pier, or rowed or sailed on the water, where they enjoyed themselves to their hearts' content, free from London smoke and London bustle. Soon after two o'clock a sumptuous and abundant dinner was prepared at the Fountain Hotel, at which T. D. Galpin, Esq., one of the partners of the firm, presided. After the cloth had been withdrawn and the usual loyal and patriotic toasts given, Mr. J. F. Wilson, one of the practical managers, proposed the health of the" firm," remarking upon the immense growth of business and the amount of labour performed under their guidance. Mr. Galpin, in responding, thanked all for their co- operation, without which it would be impossible to carry on successfully the large and rapidly-extending business in which the firm was engaged. It was gratifying to know that the numerous works issued by the firm were highly appreciated in America as well as in this country, as proved by the success which had attended their publication in that country. He felt a sincere pleasure in presiding at meetings of this cha- racter, and trusted that employers and employed would continue to work together in the same spirit for their individual as well as the general welfare. Mr. JeSery, in proposing the editorial staff," re- marked upon the difficult duties gentlemen in the lite- rary department had to perform. Editors and writers, while keeping in view that the publieafcions issued by the firm had for their object the instruction of the reader, were under the necessity of administering that instruction in an attractive form, and were bound to please the public, while exerting themselves to the utmost in the endeavour to diffuse useful knowledge and elevating sentiments. Mr. Pattook, in responding for himself, and for other members of the editorial staff who were unavoidably absent, reminded them that that day six months they celebrated the inaugu- ration of their new journal, the "Working Man," the first volume of which was now completed, and, they had reason to know, highly valued by its nume roua readers. That day the first number of the second volume was published, and though the cost of obtain- ing it would be only a penny, it promised to be worthy of its elder brother, which had required twopence a week for its support. The now Working Man would lie felt assured, be made by its conductors both useful and amusing; and he trusted that they would Tu-6W^ri(3e^ ky a large circulation. „ rurher, ia responding to the toast of_ the publishing department," was happy to bear witness to the success of the enterprises in which the firm was engaged, and believed that in America the name of Cassell, Petter, and Galpin was becoming as popular as in this country. or The men returned home some by late trains in the evening, others remained by the sea-side till Monday, the London, Chatham, and Dover Company permitting the return ticket to be available till that time. All were, however, highly pleased with their trip, and determined next year to have a similar journey. s
