OUR MINERS AND THEIR j ORPHANS., In a letter to the Times. Mr C. B. Vincent,of the Miners' Ophanage, Rotherham, states# "Towards meeting a great want in connection | with this peculiar class of British workmen a | movement has been set on foot, the design being to establish a national home into whiob oiphans of colliers, and others of like employment may be received and-clothed and properly cared for, and so trained as to fit them to become good and industrioas members of society." On the same subject Lord Shaftesbury has addressed the following letter to Mr Vincent Sir,-Your proposed institution, if successful, will be one of the wisest and best ever known. By success I mean ample support at the outset, for I feel assured that when once oegua an association r so remedial and so adapted to the peculiar danger and sutfering that beset the miners' calling cannot fail to prosper. I knew a good deal of their underground life when I was carrying a bill for the removal of women and children from the mines and collieries, and, after a descent into a pit and a survey-I may almost say taste—of what I saw and heard there, I came to the conclusion that no department of industry was more entitled than that of the subterranean workers to the sympathy and assistance of the country at large. I shall be happy to contribute JB5. [ heartily wish I could give more. L500 would not be misplaced.-Your obedient servant, SHAFTESBURY."
