p.2 The Editor, British Whig;

Dear Sir, - I see you say that there are hundreds of idle men in the city. Do you know the reason? The Montreal Transportation Company, an institution exempt from taxation, instead of giving work to citizens who pay their taxes, send a delegation of Frenchmen to handle 1,250,000 of lumber, and thus knock out honest citizens who would spend all the money they make in the city. The Frenchmen get their soup free, but take all the money that should be spent here to their homes in Quebec.

Yours truly, John

p.3 A Flag For Competition - Commodore Biggar, Belleville, offers a beautiful club ensign of silk, to be sailed for by second class yachts, under Lake Yacht Racing Association rules....

Incidents Of The Day - The schr. Nellie Hunter undergoes general repairs at Picton for the fall trade.
