Geotge-Good eveniog, friends; pray take Beats. I fed rather tired this evening ia oonaeqnence of baTing to .Bialleabelise so inaoh gravelly iron. We are prstty regular at our place, bnt it ao'kappons that WO ^ra occasionally forced to do the best we tsan witfe the iron. Eolrart-I oonclnded that from what I witnessed, �biifSlrere is not so mnoti random work practised thei* as ia nnfortnnntely th� oiso at many iron-Wotia. There eeema to he a practical knowledee BS regards the first product ot the iron, and to be ferfectly understood by the pi-oprietora both the '^tiaotity and qnality that could renoonably be expected from anch prodnot by perfecting the same into marketable prrcels. M'Donald-I tare observed the same thing. I have looked abonfc this work for refuse iron, and indeed I am'glnd to be disappointed in this matter. George^rt is no millannhtm at our works ; nevertheless we, 03 a "body df workraen, havo less to complain oT respecting the Gammon system than is the case'st many other works. But come, Robert, please -eonttnoo yoor treatise or remarks respecting the matter that cdtises'tron to cement, as I am most anxiotM to lenrn. Hhnr. It would soon poison the charge, and would cause more iron to be lost than it wonld gain. The puddler uses mill roll cinders, because they oontain a large amount of bread and cheese stuff, namely, cyanogen. This both oxidises and cements the iron under operation. This element is frequently introduced into steel. Robert-You will soon become acquainted with the elements of iron-making, John. What yon have observed respecting mill scale is qnite-oorreet, only it contains no sulphur or very little iron, so it Is only valuable as a cementing agent. But this seems little cared for or thought of at many places, for it ia thought preferable to send it to the tip rather than to the forge. At many places, if the puddler wants this nsefal matter, he must carry it on his back, as some iron firms seem too poor to allow a wheelbarrow. - I remember Bome years ago, whilst at Blaina, the puddlera at night wheeled off the best part of the railway contractor's wheelbarrows for this purpose. If they had wheeled old mother truck ahop into the river with them they would have done some good. At many worka, if you wish to be even with the rest, you must boy or steal a bucket. As for a wheelbarrow, you are bound to steal one, aides or no sides, all that is looked for is to have a good wheel under it. George-Ha! ha! I wonder workmen are so foolish as not to demand what is essential to carry on the work. This bucket system is a disgrace to our name and trade. The idea of men, after working so hard to get their iron off their hands, running about the works like so many old fish-fags, with buckets on their shoulders, watching so anxiously for anything that might be cast up to fill them with, like so many gnlls on the sea shore! Take my advice, work-men, throw these buckets into the furnace, or take them home for domestic uses. Stop by your farnncag, and let all yonr wants for cementiog matter be brought to you, or for any other matter. Robert-Now that we have anticipated what caasos the cementatioo of iron, we will endeavour to learn the losses and amount of labour it imposes on the puddler from its absence. We have I efore complained of the uncertain fusions; we take it for granted that these fusions have little or no cement-ing mattfr. More than half of Gammon, Swindle, and Frog's iron were of these fusions, consequently this will give us a basis-first, as to the loss of prodootion of puddle bars ; secondly, the loss of yield; thirdly, the amount of extra labour required to perfect the non-cementing over the cementing iron. We will take 20 paddling furnaces as our guide. These could produce in every 24 hours, of regular fusions of pig containing an adequate amount of oementing matter, 60 tons of puddle bars ; in a week, 330 tons ; in 12 months, 17,160 tons. But with much difBcuIty there could be produced of this non-cementing iron in 12 hours more than 46 tona- that would be about 2 tons 6 cwt. from each furnace in every 2-t hours; whereas the former ia nbont 3 tons for the same time, so the loss in the production of paddle bars would be 14 cwt. from each furnace, or 14 tons for the whole forge. In 24 hours the loss might stttud thus-The week's prod action of cementing iron, 330 tons; do. aon-cementing iron, 253 tons; thus giving ns a difference of 77 tons; only allowing this 77 tons to be thns lost for half the year, viz., 26 weeks, multiply 77 by 26, and we have a total of 2,002 tons in production alone. The difference in yield has still to be accounted for, that is double loss to the proprietor. Now, what might be the workman's �losaof thissum. Only allowinz him 6'. par ton for t'ae ,-iame, this wonld give 80 puddlera �130 12s in that time. M'Donald-Of course, we must not neglect our own � interest by endeavouring to obtain the highest rate of wages we possibly can. But it is with us, in Walea, a question of mapagement, and how we can obtain ir�n, that we can inaka marketable now. Hare is a loss of production in the paddling alone of 2,002 tons. No doubt more coal and fettlings was consumed by this non-cementing iron than if it had been more eoneiatent. E-jbert-Quite corredt, Jahn; as you are aware, mosb-of the Welsh ironmasters require 1 ton 11 cwt. 3qrs. -io 12 hoars to operate on in 7 different parta ; and, (cdeed, we have accepted these condltiona so long hy working this large amount that we come to the eoncluaion that we have not finished our day's work \ noieas we complete that amount. The losing of one-aecenth of our prt>daction is equal to a reduction in wages, ao at a moat moderate estimation we lose the sac I have stated in every six months. George-I think aftar tbia we puddlers shonld have Bome better understanding respecting the pig iron sent to ne for operation. Is it likely any other class of operatireB would so tamely submit to labour so much for nothing, and lose their wages in the bargain ? Suppose some builder employed a lot of maaona to dress freestone. Of course the price wonld be regulated by the material. The mason wonld have so much per foot for the same. I ask ia it likely he wonld dreaa granite for the same per foot aa the freestone? Not at all likely. Again, ia it likely that a carpenter would dress oak at the same price as deal, or any other soft material ? Then why should we be called upon to operate on iroa for six months in the year that gives us l-7th more labour than we are paid for. Eobert-That is hitting the nail on the head' George. I have, whilst at Gammon's worka, endea-vonred to press thia matter on the notice of the pnddler ; for, as we have proved, all this confusion and loaa ia in conaequenoe of negligenoo and want of practical knowledge on the part of the employers. No one is benefited by snch "a deplorable system. The employera only make a general distinction between groy mottled, white pig, and refined metal. Now, grey and mottled pig ranges from 12s. to 10s. per ton for puddling. There ara 150 variaties of white pig. I do not believe I should be exaggerating if I said that this product was as various as days in the year. Still, there is no distinotion made in price, notwithstanding some of it costs the operative one.-jeventh more labour. Now, since our employera will persist in this nncertain fusion, it will be only fair on oor part to practically nnderstand how much labour we have to devote to each charge ; how far the quality differs, and he paid accordingly. At present, we get 6s. per ton, or thereabonts. George-If the workmen wonld make a stir in thia matter, no doubt oar iron would be more regular. The time employed in mallabelising 4 cwt. 2 qrs. of iron ought not to exceed one hour and forty minutes. At this rate we could produce what was required of us ; and, we onght to be oompeuBated for any time occupied beyond this, as the fault is with the employer. Further, I contend it is a breach of contract to send os any other iron than what we could perfect in this time. M'Donald-As it is now getting late I must leave my observations on thia matter until next evening. I shall then show we ara Ukewise affected by the same system-more work and leas money. Now, we most bid you good night, George. (To te conitnued.) THE SUFFRAGE QUESTION. No. II. It seems terribly late in the day to sit oneielf down to give reasons why all men shoold posaeBS the suffrage, or, indeed, to combat the argnmenta of onr opponents. To mo the reasona are so many and so obvions, that the notion seems bordering upon. Uia ridiculons. I wonld much rather sit down and listen to the reasoi33 why a man shonld be exolnded, for, above all things, I enjoy a joke, and there cannot bo a greater joke than ts hear a man try to prove that he belongs to a claaa who have monopolised all wisdom, all patriotism, and who shonld, moreoTer, possess all authority. The fun of tiie joke ia amazingly heightened, when, as ia often the case, the pleaider for superiority happens to be alike mean i^ stature and intellect. In answer to middle clasa (}pponenta, I apply the same reuoss that the advocates of reform employed to silence their opponents, previous to theobtainmentof theBefpm Bill in 1831. They meet na with the identical argnmenta which then: opponents then naed. They tell os that to grant us the suffrage wonld be to plnnge the country into a state of ohronio revo-Intion; .that to admit the|working man wonld be to endanger the safety of the State. They tell na that property and not intelligence, that station and not manhood, gives the right to citizenship. They tell us thiat onr admission would sWamp the rigbts of the now privileged classes, and, moreover, that the majority of working men have no desire io possess poUcical power. Again and again have we t�Id them that these reasons are no more valid when applied to tis than they were when applied to themselves. Once more we appeal to the promises they made when they needed onr assistance in the dark days of their Uatory. Prior to 1831, their then recognised leaders. Earl Grey, Lord John EnsaeD, Daniel O'Connell, and a host of others, again and again proclaimed that, if the working dais wonld lend their aaaiatance, political jostica to them-aelves shonld follow. So long as that promise remains nnfnIfiUed, the middle classes of this oonntry may fairly be charged with the grossesl political ingratitude. The history of the straggle for the Eeform Bill is replete with arguments in favour of extension, be-canse all that waa then advanced by the Tory faction is now advanced by the middle-class opponents to reform. The great argument, however, seems to have been, and still is, the want of education and interest in the nation's welfare npon the part of those who apply for admissiop. Sorely no sane man would compare the intelligence of the midiUe classes of 1830 with the intelligence of the working clasass of 1865. Then, I ask, if a lower intelligence admitted the Srst-claas, why shonld the higher intelligence be ignored To the second objeotion, I answer that no class haa a greater interest in' the nation's welfare than the class that depends solely upon its labour for subsistence, for to them a atoppage in trade means little less than starvation. When strikes are spoken of, I hear it continually proclaimed that the interests of masters and workmen are identical, bnt only then. When reform is spoken of, then their interests are not identical. The workers either have no interesta whatever, or they have an interest which is opposed to that of their mnsterB. Sellers of every thing have a right to the suffrage save the sellers of the most important thing in the world-viz., labour. Man who call themselves manufacturers possess the suffrage, while the real manufacturers have none. Men who do nothing have the suffrage, while those who do everything are without the rights of citizenship. " If yon want political power, disband yourselves and you will obtain it," was the cry in 1848-9. "Toudon't want it, or you wonld organise to get it," ia the cry in 1865. "0 arsis a Parliament which represents the entire people," say they, " and which, moreover, bends to the expressed wish of the people." Once more I deny it-it simply represents the middle and upper classes, and all that they obtain comes from the jealousy and personal enmicythatocoasionallydivides these two olasses. Were their interests identical, working men ahonld obtain nothing; as it is, they obtain little. The entire Ubonr community of England is surely equally important to that small portion of the public who have invested their savings in railwaya. Working men pay taxes; they suffer the penalty of any infringement of the law of which they may be guilty ; they suffer and they prosper as the land which gave them birth suffers or prospers. When the nation is in danger they man onr fi-jets, and form the rank and file of our armies; and how they fought, and how they are prepared to fight, may ba read in the chronicles of many a bloody enoonnter. You surely will not call them hirelings, for hirelings never fought as they have fon^t. Thay sorely believed they hod Bomething to fight for who fonght at Waterloo and at Inkermann, They, at least, had the honour of their native land to maintain, and thia nerved their aims and B{9el�4 theii-hearts in courage. No vote, no mnsket; no vote, no tar-paying; na voice in the making of laws, no anbjectaon to laws when m-ide. This doctrine waa preached by the middle classes in 1830. Must they repeat it? Mast they threaten revolution as the middle class threatened it ? I trust not j for there ia no necessity for so doing. Make good yonr promise, and work-ing men will show you that they appreciate the right yon give them by the nse they make of it.- Yours, &o., J. B. Lino. ASOTilKS FlTAL CoLtrBSY AcctDENi.--A fatal' colliery accident occurred on Friday morning about half-past aeven o'clock at Messrs Bonrnes and R-5binaon'a Pearly Cross Colliery, Button, near St. Helens, to a man named Thomas Gardner, aged 38, residing in Drmskirk-street, St. Helena. The deceased was a labourer at the colliery, and it was hia duty to remove the waggons, when filled with coal, from onder the riddle. On Friday morning the deceased, soon after he had commenced work, was^ misBed by his fellow-workmen, when search was made, and he was fonnd between a waggon and the wall, ornahed to deah. He haa left a vrife and twc ohiltiren to mourn his loss. An inqueat waa held on the body on Monday, before Mr Driffield, at the^ Sefion Arms Inn, when a verdict of "Acoidental death" waa returned. Fatal Accident at FsAKWELtOATB Moob Col-' LiEBT.-On Monday afternoon an inqueat was held* at Framwellgate Moor, before J. Favell,  Esq.,-ooroner, on the body of a young man named Mavin, 19 years of age, who came by his death under the following circumstances.  It appears that Mavin was a fireman at the colliery, and in addition to this duty he had to attend the drum connected with an engine.   The engine draws the coals from the old pit and pnlls the empty waggons np an incline''from a crossing of the River Wear.  His dnty was to guide the rope with a pinch, ao that it might be properly wound round the drum. The engineman aaw the body ot the unfortunate young man carried past the engine-house on the rope, and before he could stop the engine the body waa carried round the drum three times, the rope paasing over his body, so that he was crushed to death.  Mr. Atkinsoa, impector of mines, and J. Anderson, Esq., manager of the Marchioness of Londonderry's collieries, were present at the inqneat.   The young man's tobacco, box was found on the ground where it waa his dnty to stand whilst guiding the rope, and it ia supposed be had, been lighting hia pine and leaning on the pinch at the time.  The pinch had jerked out, and he bad so fallen on the rope and been carried round the drum.  The jury inquired if something could not be invented to guide the rope instead of manual application, bnt Mr. AtkioBon said it had been tried, and in every instance failed. , A long conversation took place between Mr. Atkinson and the engineet. of the (�lliery aa to the practicability of the application of machinery for the piupo80> bus they seemed to come to the cqpcluaion that nothing had yet been invented suitable for this purpoae. The jury returned a verdict of "Acoidental deoth." The remains of the unfortunate young man were interred at St. Cothberf� bniial ground on Modday,
