Vincent, o? the Miners' Ophanagr, Rotherham, states Towards meeting a great want in connection with this peculiar oiass of British workmen a movement has been set on foot, tae design being Lo establish a. oaAional hems into wfnch dagaUU oxphans 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 industrious members of society/' On the same subject Lord Shaftesbury has addressed the following letter to Mr Vine-r "Bir,-Your proposed institution, if succ> fuL will be one of the wisest and best ever know "7 success, I mean ample support at the outset feel assured that when once begun an asso< > so remedial and so adapted to the peculiar < and suffering that beset the miners calling Lt. fail to prosper.
