I have the honour to inform the house that during the recess I have received communications from several members notifying me that the following vacancies have occurred in the representation:
Of Hon. Gabriel Edouard Rinfret, member for the electoral district of Outremont-St. Jean, consequent upon his acceptance of an office of emolument under the crown.
Of Louis Orville Breithaupt, Esquire, member for the electoral district of Waterloo North, by resignation.
I accordingly issued my warrants to the chief electoral officer to make out new writs of election for the said electoral districts.
