Demand for labor. There ne

remembrance, when the demand
for labor throughout the country
was so great as at present; and,
of consequence, there never was a
lime when the price of labor was

fined to any one class of workmen,
but extends to every class, farmers
included. Although thousands of I
laborers and artizans are import

tries, they seem but as a drop in
the bucket, and the demand goes

Deiore they acted, and of doing
nothing precipitately. The spee

speakers, though not hostile to
emancipation, were hostile to the
absurd and ridiculous views of
those who, under the mask of phi

Suppression of Gambling Hou
ses in Paris. The French Cham
ber of Deputies have passed an
important vote, suppressing all the
gambling houses of the capital,
from January, 1838. The com
pany which had farmed these es
tablishments, had hoped to parry
the menaced blow by volunteering
to suppress such gambling houses
as were frequented by artisans,
and where the stake ws as lew as
a franc. The Home and Finance
Ministers deprecated the loss to
the revenue, and proposed a more
gradual suppression. But the
Chamber decided upon adopting
the motion of M. Gaetan de la Ro
chefoucauld, which fixed the com
mencement of 1 838, as the term of
permission to such houses.

Paris National,
Surgical. Dor-tor Duval, or

hospitals of Paris, has performed
frequently of late, and always
with success, an operation by
which club-feet, the most deform

not cure, are set perfectly straight
at the end of thirty or forty days.
This operation, which had not
been performed before at Parh, is
not painful. Among those cured
by Doctor Duval, are some who
had been lame thirty years. The
Academy of Sciences, and the
Royal Academy of Medicine, have

drawing to itself all that is discon
tented or distressed throughout
Palestine. Their number is esti

men. They have a sufficient sup
ply of arms, ammunition, provi

that it will be impossible to dis

worth trying.
