"File Lord-in Torres ponde tit of the New York
I Evening Tost says:—
A capital p^cm lately appeared in the publica
tion called “Punch,” entitled “The Song ol the
Shirt.” It is from the pen of the facetious Tho
mas Hood, of punning notoriety, but whose hap
piest efforts, after all, are in the serious vein
witness his noble poem of Eugene Aram. The
circumstances which have called forth this
“Song of the Shirt” are of a very painful char
acter. It appear* that the slop-sellers of Lon
don (mostly Jews) have actually succeeded in
break in; down the price of female labour to
that mockery of remuneration—three half pence,
(ornot quite three cents) per shirt! True, the
s* -.iris are rut* together in the slightest manner,
an I then palmed o f upon the unwary sailors,
but -titI. the money to be earned by this sortot
• work will hardly suffice to keep body and son!
i You may see some notice in the papers of shirts
made c,t a firth'ing a-piece!—but this is not so
than! a cave as the other, because, in the latter
! instance, the makers arc women, supported by
j the parish, whether they make shirs or not, and
■ these farthings were more i. the light of “pocket
‘money.” It L a nii-eruble thing, however, to
see labor thusde »reciMi*d. Hut it is a true say*
j inir. that "eric half of the world knows not how
the other lire**.'1 Yet the gigantic mctiopolL
wiiere these things arc done, increases in wealth
and daity. If appears, from a recent gc-v
• cru.nent r« turn, that since 182‘J no le^s than 15,
! 0-){I houses, forming new streets and squ irt..?,
