21st There was frost last night and the side walks with the effects of it. The Assizes began to day Judge Morrison preciding


This was a remarkably fine morning. It continued so all the early part of the day but a great change came about towards the after part of the day, turned rather cold and dreary. This last few days the leaves have been falling of the trees in great quantities


This is a dull morning and raw. Reports are going about that the Guelph Mills & all the property of the Bank of Commerce is sold, but cannot trace it to any authentic source as yet, but after Saturday it will be fully known after the tenders are opened. About 7 Oclock it began to rain and continued for some time
