asked the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether Lord Carnarvon has received any reply to his telegram for information respecting the rioting in the Island of Tobago; and, whether he has any further communication to make to the House on the subject?
As far as the Island of Barbadoes is concerned we hear of no further disorders. With regard to Tobago, a telegram received this morning from Governor Hennessy reports that, according to information received by him from the Lieutenant Governor the rioting had been confined to one plantation only; that a woman had been killed by a policeman, who had been subsequently assailed by the mob and had since died of injuries received. Order had been completely restored, and the Lieutenant Governor had no apprehensions of any further disturbances.
