Presentation.

 — On Saturday morning, 25th July 1885, Mr. James Brickhill, proprietor of the Daily Telegraph, was made the recipient of a handsome marble parlor clock, surmounted with bronze figures, and bearing an inscription most artistically engraved on a silver plate, by Mr. Owen Jarman, St. John street, accompanied with an address, the spontaneous gift of the whole of his employees, comprising the commercial, literary, composing, and mechanical departments. The occasion chosen was a most fitting one, namely, the second anniversary of the paper as a daily, and the drawing to a conclusion of the extensive alterations which have been made from one end of the office to the other. The presentation was made by Mr. Geo. Stewart, the editor, in the large ' now composing-room, in the presence of the whole of the employees, and in doing so he spoke of the uniform kindness of demeanor always shown by Mr. Brickhill, and adding that the sterling proofs of his success, which were so visible, would cause them to feel a proper pride in all that concerned the advancement of his extensive and extending business. Mr. Brickhill thanked his employees very heartily for the handsome presentation, which was unmistakable evidence, he was glad to say, of the esteem they held him in, and assured them that the success of the paper would be their success also. Ringing cheers were then given for Mr. Brickhill, Mr. Stewart, and the Daily Telegraph, and the proceedings terminated.
