RAILWAYS.âLord Campbell ased the noble Earl at the head of the Board of Trade whether, according to the existing law, the practice of one nilway company purchasing other projected railways could le prevented, and if not whether it was the intention of Gcvernment to introduce any measure to put a stop to that prac<ce? The Earl of Dalhousie said, tlat no doubt could be enter- tained of the fact that projected lines of railway were bought up by existing companies, /s to the state of the existing law, the Board of Trade certainly had the power under the Act of le,U, to interlere in such transactions by sending a certificate of the fact of purchase to the law officers of the Crown, whose opinion wa-, that such purchases were not legal. Notices were accordingly given to the railway com- panies, who would have to meet the case against them. He believed the law was sufficient to reach them, but if not, the Government would make it a duty to put the law into such a state as to stop the abuses complained of. The house then adjourned.
