p.3 The Garden Island - A telegraphic despatch says that a favourable account has been received of the last trip of the Garden Island across the ocean. The vessel reached Liverpool yesterday with a cargo of grain, having made the voyage from Quebec in 20 days.
The Detroit Post says that from trustworthy sources it was learned yesterday, that a British naval officer is on the way from Ottawa to Windsor, where he will arrive soon, commissioned to charter a steamboat and fit her out as a gunboat to be kept ready for service in view of the troubles that have lately arisen on the question of American tugs wrecking in Canadian waters. The officer is to be clothed with extraordinary powers, included among which are the authority to enforce international regulations and settle recent difficulties and the appointment of subordinates in the various custom-house districts to look after Canadian interests in the connection named. We have heretofore said that Canadian tug-owners had been promised the protection they asked from the Government at Ottawa, and now if the report is correct, we shall see what we shall see.
