p.1 Town of Port Hope - mentions Harbour being completed and canal to Rice Lake. (2 full columns) [Port Hope Warder]

p.3 Commodore Barrie makes trial trip, Rapid visits Kingston. [Chronicle]

The fine new steam-boat Commodore Barrie made a trial trip on Thursday, in which she proved her right to a place among our fastest boats. Under the command of Lieut. Clarke, R.N., she is expected to commence her regular trips early next week.

We were visited in our harbour on Thursday by the new boat Rapid, Capt. Doty, built at Prescott, on a plan similar to that called the Burden. For the present, at least, there is a sad failure in the degree of speed with which she was expected to travel - her rate being but 8 or 9 miles per hour.
