Honor To Whom Honor is Due - We find we erred yesterday in giving all the credit of the mercantile adventure of the Arabia to Mr. George Wright. It appears that Mesrs. Lamb, Playfair & Co. of Glasgow, by their friends here, Messrs. Bryce, McMurrich & Co., were the parties who chartered the Arabia and now load her for the Scottish market. The wheat was purchased by Messrs. L.Pl & Co., from Mr. Wright, and the only risk he has in the venture is in the 500 barrels flour. [Toronto Globe]
