How are ships to turnout their true compliment, when weighed by such weights ? There is now a vessel in this port, which has had upwards of £7 kept back on account of her cargo not holding weight; it is high time such things should be closely investigated. The-magistrates ordered Mr. Yorath to keep the weight in charge, and to bring the case forward on the next court day.
