p.2 The Maritime Court

The first sitting of the Maritime Court of Ontario was opened today by Judge Price, with Captains W.R. Taylor and John Macdonald as assessor.

There is only one case before the Court, viz., that of the Olive and Peerless for collision in the Rideau Canal last summer. The Olive is a propellor of 81 tons, and colliding with the Peerless, 14 tons, sunk her a mile and a half on this side of Merrickville. The contest, as is usual in such cases, is as to who was negligent upon that occasion, each party claiming that the other was out of the proper course. Mr. Radenhurst (Perth), and Mr. McIntyre appear for the plaintiff and Messrs. Britton and Whiting for the defendants. There are about thirty witnesses to be examined, and the case will occupy some days.

p.3 First Arrival - An Oswego despatch says: The schooner D.M. Foster from Port Hope with lumber arrived last night, the first of the season.
