p.2 Capt. Richardson's new boat, the Chief Justice, was tried on Saturday last between this port and Queenston. The machinery answered admirably, and she went up in 37 minutes. The result has given the greatest satisfaction to both owners and builders, and the impression is that she will be the fastest boat on the Lake. In consequence of the Bay of Toronto being frozen up, the Chief Justice will remain here during the winter. [Niagara Chronicle]

p.3 Melancholy Event - suicide of John McGibbon of McGibbon, Ferguson & Co., forwarders, because of recent mercantile failures.
