We feel great regret in adding to the accounts of the great mass of misery
existing in the nation, continued announcements of the melancholy state of
distress of the labouring classes in the vicinity of Carlisle. Since the meeting
on the 10th ult., individuals to the number of 160 have been employed in forming
footpaths, making roads, improving those parts of the suburbs, whose picturesque
beauty had not hitherto been assisted by art, and in other labours. At the same
time that the situation of the suffering poor is alleviated, the outskirts of
the town are becoming partially improved. - Carlisle Journal.
