p.3 The Steamers Kent and London - At the Western District Assizes which opened on the 4th inst. before Mr. Justice Macaulay, the case of the loss of the Kent came before the court in an action brought against the owners of the London, which it will be recollected came in collision with her on Lake Erie. The jury brought in a verdict of £2500 for the plaintiffs. If this verdict is sustained, passengers on board the Kent at the time of the accident who may have lost baggage etc. will be equally entitled to recover.
