Michigan Central.—In our last issue, pg. 263, we mentioned a rumor that this Co. would ask the Dominion Government to deepen Kingsville harbor, with a view to run boats from Sandusky to that town, the M.C.R. promising to extend its railway from Essex to Kingsville, 15 miles. We have been officially informed that the rumor has no foundation whatever, & that the M.C.R. has never had any intention of extending the Canada Southern to Kingsville or developing the harbor at that point. There are evidently some real estate boomers at work in this connection, as a similar unauthorized statement has been going the rounds of the daily press in regard to the G.T.R.
