p.2 Assizes - It was nearly six o'clock when the special jury in the case of Calvin & Breck vs The Provincial Insurance Company, after less than half an hour's absence, came into court with a verdict for plaintiffs for $3,100, the full amount claimed. In reply to a question by the Judge in reference to the attempt made by the tug to take the Rapid to Holcomb & Henderson's wharf, while they went to bring another vessel to complete their tow, the foreman, Mr. John Carruthers, stated that the jury had considered this fact, and had found it to be an established and reasonable custom; and also, in reply to another question, that they had found that the mate of the Rapid had acquiesced in being taken to the wharf. The entire evidence in the case turned upon the accident to the Rapid while in tow of the plaintiff's tug.
