Mr. EMMERSON.

In the late estimate there was a vote for $3,000 for a wharf at Shediac Island, and that vote is not repeated in the present estimates. The people living on that island are thrifty French Acadians, engaged in fishing and agriculture, and while in the winter they can cross on the ice, in the summer their supplies have all to be obtained from the mainland and there is neither wharf nor landing place, which, of course, imposes great inconvenience on the inhabitants.
