Summary
Little political trouble in the assembly this session. Papers written against the majority occasioned little noise or opposition. Noyelles made much talk and he was anonymously accused of several petty crimes. The House inquired into the matter and he was acquitted. Most talk about an action of ejection begun against a tenant of Noyelles. A five pound act is passed. Many lawyers doubt if an action in one province on a judgment obtained in another can be supported. Applies only to the colonies and is an important point. A law passed for the revision of our laws.
