EXTRACT FROM GOVERNOR DARLING'S SPEECH IN OPENING THE NEWFOUNDLAND LEGISLATURE, FEBRUARY 3rd, 1857.



(Journal of Assembly, 1857, p. 9.)

        “Taking advantage of a suitable means of conveyane and of the first opportunity which the season and course of Public business since the commencement of my administration permitted, I have visited during the recess most of the Outports of the Island and several harbours of Labrador. . . . to convince me of the correctness of the opinion I had formed, as to the magnitude and character of both the imports and exports Trade prosecuted on the Labrador, not only as a branch of the regular commerce of this Island but also by Mercantile houses in the mother Country and numerous transient traders from the United States, and the neighbouring Colonies, whose traffic though largely maintained and ministered to by the temporary migration in considerable nmbers of the operative population of Newfoundland finds no place whatever in Customs Records.”
