P. of Almonte.: Mr, Thorburn is a woollen manufacturer and naturally is to have the duty increased upon woollen goods. A few days after this debate Dr. Mc- lntyre received a letter from a work- man in the town of'Almonte, which is very fair evidence of the dire nec- essity of greater protection to aid the languishing manufacturers in Cana- da. The letter reads as follows: "Almonte, April 15th. "Mr. ago Mr. Wm. Thorburn was working in the factory at 'one dollar a day. Thirty years ago he started making flannels. He is now worth a quarter of a million dollars. He needs more protection, don't he, poor Bill."
