As the Steamer was delayed and I had little on my hands I seized the opportunity this morning to go out in order to look up some houses, for the time of my removal from here is approaching and I am yet floating about. I found a good many references, which was about all I could do for today. This is very annoying, and especially just at this moment when the season of the industrial Exhibition is about to take place. I have not yet found a single desirable house. excepting that immediately adjoining mine, which is set up at a very exorbitant price. Little passed at the Office. There was further news from America much the same as before, the drift favorable but no new victory. I was much interested in the newspaper accounts that arrived. Evening, the Contemporaine.
