BRITISH WORKMEN IN PARIS. The first batch of English workmen visiting the French capital under the auspices of the Paris Excur- sion Committee (Mr. A. H. Layard, M.P., President) have just returned to London, highly delighted with the various arrangements made bcth for their .comfort and pleasure. The clean airy dwellings erected by the Imperial Commission, and placed at the disposal of the committee for the exclusive use of British workmen up to the end of October, have given the greatest satisfaction to their first tenants, as will be seen from the following resolutions unanimously passed at a meeting of the excursionists, in the reading-room adjoining the dwellings :— Mo ved by Mr. Luke, of Manchester, seconded by Mr. Tunbridge, of London :— That the best thanks of this meeting of English workmen be respectfully tendered to His Imperial Majesty the Emperor of the French for his thoughtful kindness in conceding to the artisans of the United Kingdom the exclusive use of the excellent accommodation afforded in the workmen's dwell- ings, Place Rapp, erected under the supervision of the Imperial Commission. Moved by Mr. West, of London, seconded by Mr. Bruek, of Guillford:- That the best thanks of this meeting be and are hereby given to A. H. Layard, Esq., M.P. (President), Mr. Hodgson Pratt (Vice-President), the secretaries, and members of the Paris Excursion Committee for their laborious services in organizing and carrying out the first of their cheap excur- sions to the Universal Exhibition, and this meeting trusts that the remarkable success that has attended the first effort will ba continued weekly to-the end of the season. Th^exertions of the gentlemen forming the Paris Exhibition Committee have thus far proved highly successful, and it now remains to be seen whether the r (l en of this country will second these praiseworthy enorts to enable them to become personally acquainted v-iti-i the many objects of interest now concentrated in the Frercli capital.
