Copy of a letter from the Speaker of the Assembly to Richard Cumberland. Lieu-Gov. Wentworth's arrival. He encloses the papers relative to the case of the schooner Jennet, and requests Cumberland's best services in bringing business to the attention of Government. The House asks his attention to obtaining bounties on tun timber, permitting wine and fruit to be imported from Spain, pitch, tar, turpentine and tobacco from the United States, and opening a free port at Halifax, which objects are very important to Nova Scotians. The necessity of a well-defined boundary between N.S. and N.B. again felt; also that of increasing the number of ports and of dividing two of the counties, for which memorials have been sent. The reduction of the squadron operates against trade and fisheries being carried on by provincials.
