Editors Dispatch: There are numbers of
very worthy men thrown out of emplo;. -
ment recently, through the stagnation -d'
trade, some of whose families are sufferng
for the uecessaries of life. It will be worse
as the winter draws near. Caunot some
thing be done for thcui ? Let me suggest
something, and ask your aid to give it pub
licity, that the matter may be thought oyer,
and result in some good: In a crisis like
this such of us as are fortunate euongh to re
tain employment should contribute as libe
rally as possible to those who stand in need
of assistance. .
Good can be accomplished by organized
effort; and I propose that the employed me
chanics in each ward form " Shoulder-to
Shoulder" clubs and contribute so much
weekly or monthly to a common fund, to be
placed in the hands of a reliable and trust
worthy person, to be used m the purchase
of provisions aud fuel to be distributed to
those worthy of aid. As an earnest of my
intention I leave my name with the editors
of this paper (who know me) and promise to
devote a portion of my salary to the object
