The Times of this morning contains a copy of a

memorial signed by sixty householders of Great Windmill Street, presented to the St. James's Vestry on Thursday, complaining of the "very great and increasing nuisance and pecuniary loss" they sustain "from the establishment of the Soup Kitchen in Ham Yard." They represent that the thoroughfare is stopped up, every day, by collections of street-beggars numbering from three to four hundred ; that several premises are now empty in consequence ; that they suffer in business ; and they earnestly request the Vestry to " adopt some measures to have this serious nuisance done away with."
