The schooner MONGUAGON and the WHITNEY, the WHITNEY passed the Limekilns she was libeled by the owners of the MANGUAGON and bonded at Amherstburg. As the boats were of American registration, the question arose as to the jurisdiction of the Canadian courts. Judge Hodgens decided that the Dominion had jurusdiction in the case, and heard part of the arguments Thursday. The case will be continued at Windsor, April 5.
