p.2 The Steamer Kent - The action brought against the proprietors of the London for the collision with the Kent, which resulted in the loss of the latter vessel, was submitted to a Jury of the Gore District. The case had been previously submitted to a jury in the Western District, and a verdict given for the Plaintiffs, but as it was supposed that local partialities had influenced the jury, a new trial was moved for and obtained, with a change of venue, the defence was not, however, a whit more successful in the Gore District, the jury having returned a verdict for £2500 - the estimated value of the Kent.
