I’nder this heading Mr. Dickens describes, in Household Words, what he witnessed one night outside the Whitechapel work house: “On the 5th of last November, I, theconduc tor of this journal, accompanied by a friend well known to the public, accidentally stray ed into Whitechapel. It was a miserable evening ; very dark, very muddy, and rain ing hard. There are many wotul sights in that part of London, and it has been well known to me in most of its aspects for many years. We had forgotten the mud and rain in slowly walking along and looking about us, when we found ourselves, at eight o’ clock, before the workhouse. Crouched j against the wall of the workhouse, in the dark street, on the muddy pavemeut-stonea, with the rain raining upon them, were five bundles of rags. They were motionless, and had no resemblance to the human form. Five great beehives covered with rags—fire dead bodies taken out of graves, tied neck and heels, and covered with rags—would have looked like those of five bundles upon which the rain rained down in the public street. “‘What is this?’ said my companion; ‘what is this ?’ ‘Some miserable people shut out of the casual ward, l think,’ said 1. (Mr. Dickens then describes his inquiries in the workhouse. He found that the women were shut out simply because the house was full.) We weut to the ragged bundle nearest the workhouse door, and I touched it. No move ment replying I gently shook it. The rags began to be slowly stirred withiu, and by little and little a head was unsbrouded—the head of a young woman of three or four and twenty, as 1 should judge, gaunt with want, and foul with dirt, but not naturally ugly. ‘Tell us/ said I, stooping down, ‘why are you lying here?' ‘Because 1 can’t get into the workhouse.’ She spoke in a faint dull way, and had no curiosity or interest left. She looked dreamily at the black sky and the falling rain, but never ut mo nr mv com t iflll ion . ‘“Were you here last night?” Yes; all last night, and the night afore too.’ ‘Do you know* any of these others?’ I know ber next but one; she was here last night, and she told me she come out of Essex. I don't know no more of her.’ ‘You were here all last night, but you have not been here all day?’ ‘No, not all day.’ ‘Where have you been all day?’ ‘About the streets/ Whsi have you had to eat?’ Nothing. ‘Come/ said I, ‘think a little. You are tired and have been asleep, and do not quit consider what you are saying to us. You have had some thing to eat to-day. Come ! think of it.’ ‘No, I I haven’t. Nothing but such bits as I could pick up about the market. Why, look at me’/ She bared her neck, and I coved it up again. •If you had a shilling to get some supper and a lodging, should you know where to get it?' ‘Yes, I could do that/ ‘For God's sake | get it then/ “I put the money into her hand, and sho i feebly rose and went away. Sbe never j thanked me, never looked at me, melted away into the miserable night, in the strangest manner 1 ever saw. I have seen many strange things, but not one that has left a deeper impression on my memory than the ; dull impassive way in which that worn out heap of mysery took that piece of money and was lost. One by one I spoke to and the five. In every one interest aod curiosity were as extinct as in the first. They were all dull and languid. No one made any sort of profession or complaint, no one cared to look at me, no one thanked me. When I came to the third, I supposo she saw that my companion and I glanced, with a new horror upon us, at the last two, who had dropped against each other in their sleep, and were lying like broken images. She said she believed they were young sifters. These were the only words that were originated among the five."_ IdiT FAIR!
