WM. GIBBARD, ESQ.

There is a painful rumour in town that William Gibbard, Esq, Government Inspector of Fisheries in lake Huron and Superior, was lost off the Ploughboy on her last trip from the Sault Ste. Marie to Collingwood, between Horse and Lonely Island. It seems to be the impression that he was secretly pushed overboard by one of the prisoners taken at the Manitoulin Island who were allowed to walk about the deck of the boat. It is to be hoped that if there is truth in the report of Mr. Gibbard being missing, that he was left accidentally at one of the stopping places.
