p.1 The Prince Edward District - description of geography, lakes, bays, islands, villages, roads, soils, fishing, etc. (2 columns) [Christian Guardian]

p.3 A New Enterprise - Our attention was drawn this morning to a neat schooner-rigged craft lying at Greer's Wharf, which we were informed had come through direct from the City of New York without breaking bulk. On making inquiry of the Captain, R.B. Chapman, we found that our informant was correct - and further that the Magnet, for such is her attractive name, was built at Morristown, St. Lawrence Co., N.Y., by her enterprising Skipper, will carry 115 tons in 3 1/2 feet of water. Captain Chapman left New York on the return trip, a week ago last Monday, and found no difficulty on the passage - the vessel working admirably. The Magnet had a freight of some 250 bbls Pork for this port. We hope the Magnet will always attract full freights and fair weather, and richly reward the enterprise of her young and enterprising owner. [Chronicle]

Coroner's Inquests - An inquest was held on the 7th inst., by Henry Benson, Esq., Coroner, on the body of a young man named Michael Ryan, belonging to H.M. Surveying Steamer Union, who was accidentally drowned in Navy Bay, by falling out of a punt in which he was fishing. Verdict accordingly.

On the 27th ult., Mr. Benson held an inquest on the body of John Burnett, who was found dead in the Marine Railway Yard. The deceased was a sailor, and had been employed in the service of Messrs. Ives.....verdict, "Died by the visitation of God." [ibid]
