Hon. JAS. SUTHERLAND (Minister of Public Works).

The correspondence is being prepared as quickly as possible. There was seme difficulty in understanding from the hon. gentleman's motion, what correspondence is referred to, but I suppose it is the correspondence with Mr. Jackson. It will be brought down in probably a day or two.

I thought it was easy to comprehend the order of the House. It was understood to include all correspondence relating to the matter.

Mr. JAS. SUTHERLAND.

I have no doubt it was to my hon. friend and to me, lint some of the officials did not seem to understand it, as most of the correspondence is with another party of a very similar, or almost the same name.

Vol. I.@

A month ago, an order was granted for copies of all contracts re-

specting the carriage of the mails from the St. Lawrence during the, past four or five years. I would suppose that there ought to be printed copies of these contracts on file, and it would be easy to bring. down. Another matter, which has not been standing quite so long, relates to the correspondence concerning the appointment of a postmaster in the town of Huntingdon.

Right Hon. S@

The return with regard to the mail contract from the St. Lawrence, has to do with the Department of Trade and Commerce. Lest it might be inferred it was in my department, I -wish to say that I do not know anything about it.
