p.2 New Collector of Customs - Reports are rife in town, that the Collector of Customs to succeed the Hon. John Macaulay, at Kingston, is to be Captain Kelly, late Collector at Toronto. As many worthy and qualified gentlemen are doubtless candidates for this trust-worthy and lucrative situation, it would be invidious in us to express pleasure at Mr. Kelly's appointment to their disparagement; but knowing Captain Kelly to have been extremely ill-used by the Executive, it will afford us gratification to see him re-instated in a department for which he ought not to have been removed. We therefore heartily hope that rumour, so often wrong, may have truth for its basis, and that either at Kingston or some other place, Capt. Kelly may be properly provided for. [Whig]
