Mr. McClellan said as he saw several members of the Government in their places, he wished to ask if any despatches other than those laid before the House had been received from the Governments of the other provinces respecting a Union of the Maritime Provinces. If they had, he gave notice that on the 12th inst. he should move the following address :—

Resolved, That an humble Address be presented to His Excellency the Lieutenant Governor, praying that His Excellency will be pleased to cause to be laid before this House copies of all despatches sent to Her Majesty’s Secretary of State for the Colonies, or received from him, and not already laid before this House, having reference to a Union of the Maritime Provinces ; also all memorandum or Minutes of Council made by the Government of this Province, or transacted by the neighboring Colonies, with any correspondence therewith and relating to said subject.

Hon. Mr. Wilmot replied that all despatches, so far as he knew, had been laid before the House.
