I No later return. PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND.-The average rate of wages in Prince Edward Island is nearly the same as in New Brunswick. Farm servants enpable of

managing a farm, 801. to 401. Other Farm servants, 241. per annum currency. Female servants, 108. to 203. a month. BRITISH COLOMBIA and VANCOUVER ISLAND.--Thc rates of wages differ so much according to the locality, demand, and season of the year, that it is al. jost impossible to form a general average for common labour. At New Westminster a day labourer gets 108. per em, without board, while mecbanics get rom 14s. to 208. a day. At Cariboo the same class of labourer gets 12s. per diem with board, and other branches of labour are paid in proportion throughout he colony.
