p.2 The Prince of Wales - The matter complained of in last Friday's paper, touching an exhorbitant charge of freight, has been promptly explained. It would appear, that the clerk of the boat being changed from last season, and it being the first trip of the season, the Plaster was shipped as 18 cwt. of merchandize and charged accordingly, instead of being entered as Plaster, and charged at the inferior rate. The error has been rectified, and our friend, the farmer, is perfectly satisfied. It affords us much pleasure in making this explanation.
