With board and lodging. + Little or no demand. PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND.-The average rate of wages in Prince Edward Island is nearly the same as in New Brunswick. Farm servants capable of managing a farm, 304. to 401. Other Farm servants, 241. per annum currency. Female servants, 108. to 20s. a month. BRITISH COLUMBIA and VANCOUVER ISLAND.-The rates of wages differ so much according to the locality, demand, and season of the year, that it is al1ost impossible to form a general average for common labour. At New Westminster a day labourer gets 10s. per diem, without board, while mechanics get rom 148. to 20s. a day. At Cariboo the same class of labourer gets 128. per diem with board, and other branches of labour are paid in proportion throughout he colony.
