p.2 Another Letter from the Editor - (from the Rossin House, Toronto, March 23d, 1858)(part) "...Mr. Calvin, (Tug Line) is also staying here. It seems that there is a screw loose somewhere about the renewal of his Steam Tug Contract, and a parcel of Lower Canada people, with a big man at their head, are moving Heavan and Earth to deprive Mr. C. of what the excellent performance of his prior contracts might rationally have expected - the favor of Government for its renewal. A great many tenders, all from the same parties, have been put in, so as to catch Mr. Calvin between two of them. Mr. Macdonald, like a brick, stands stiff for equity and Upper Canada interests, but what the result will be I cannot tell. Mr. Calvin's interests are so identified with those of Kingston, that, in this his great matter, he should be strongly supported by memorials from those who can testify to the full performance of what he has hitherto undertaken...."
