p.2 Gildersleeve vs Wolfe Island Canal - Mr. Frances moved for leave for the defendants to file answer without corporate seal attached and for further time to answer. Mr. J.D. Edgar contra. Mr. Francis contended that plaintiffs had possession of corporate seal, and that defendants could not get access to it to affix it to answer. Mr. Edgar files affidavit showing that although seal was in possession of plaintiff's solicitor, the President or other officer of the company has full access to it, and that the President refuses to affix seal to answer. Mr. Francis then asked that proceedings should be stayed to allow an application to the Court of Queen's Bench on behalf of shareholders to compel the President to affix seal to answer. Mr. Edgar objects that notice of motion does not correspond with the leave given by former order. Judgement reserved. - Chancery report.

-The schooner Antelope, Capt. Butler, left Toronto on Saturday night for Pictou and Shediac. She was loaded by Mr. W.H. Howland with grain, flour and provisions. This is the seventh vessel Mr. Howland has despatched this season for the Maritime Provinces.

-The Sault Ste. Marie Canal is gradually approaching completion. Already there have been excavated 20,000 cubic yards of rock and 4,300 cubic yards of earth. The canal is to be lined with timber and not with stone, as according to the original idea. An additional set of locks are to be constructed, Congress having made a further appropriation of $200,000 for that purpose. The cost of the entire improvement will amount to $2,000,000.
