MONKEYS' PARADE. Ramarkable Proceedings. I A Monkeys' Parade" has for some time been an established institution on Sunday nights in Bow-road. People in the neighbour- hood who do not possess simian tastes and refuse to acknowledge ancestral apes as part of their primeval pedigree do not like it but the young" monkeys of both sexes from whom the parade takes its name have hitherto been stbie to hold their own, in spite of all the civilis- ing- resonrces brought to bear on them. They sing- comic songs, march five breast on the pavement, hustle reputable people, women as well as men, and imitate pandemonium-in fact, behave altogether in a manner calculated to raise a feeling of indignation in the breast of any self-respecting ourang-outang. The police at last determined to put down the "Parade" and punish the monkeys. A raid wa made on it on Sunday night, and the result was the appearance in the morning, at the Thames Poiiee-c of about: a score of young lads and girls who were accused of disorderly conduct, Their aspect in the dock justified the title given to that part of Bow-road wh:ch they frequented, the intelligence they exhibited being of that degree which might be expected from monkeys, or human roughs who insult wonwn going to church and assault men who resent their horseplay. Mr Dickinson, the magistrate, thought it was high time to abolish tho Parade as part of the East End Suuday. If anyone had come forward to charge them with assault he would have sent the accused to prison as it was, he bound them over in J35 to be of good behaviour for six months, with the alternative of seven days in gaol. It is a pity his worship cannot order them to pass a week in the monkeys' cage at the Zoological Gardens. They and their relations would soon become mutually repugnant.
