p.2 County Court - Brown vs Mitchell et al - This was an action growing out of the sale of the wheat in the hold of the propeller Magnet at the time she was being taken on the ways at Portsmouth for repairs. When Mr. David refused to ratify his condition of the sale, for reasons already stated, the wheat in bulk was purchased by Mr. George Brown of this city for $175, and the money paid. After this 800 or 900 bushels were thrown into the harbour at Portsmouth to assist in getting the vessel on the ways, and the insurance agent, Mr. G. Fortier, of Toronto, who is associated in this action as the chief defendant, sold a part of the remainder at 15 cents a bag, plaintiff taking what he could get. Mr. Peter Mitchell in having the grain thrown overboard acted under the orders of the agent, Mr. Fortier. Messrs. Britton & Price for plaintiff, O'Reilly and Draper for defendants.
