p.2 a man boarding steamer Shannon at Grenville fell off the plank and was killed. [Bathurst Courier]

p.3 We were yesterday politely shewn over the extensive warehouses and wharves lately erected and repaired for the business of Mr. T. Macnider, wholesale merchant of this town. These premises, situated at the North end of Front Street, on the site of the old Kingston Bank, are perhaps the most capacious and perfect of their kind of any in the Upper Province. They comprise an extensive shop and counting house on the ground floor, the same upwards of 100 feet in depth, with proportionate breadth; and an equally extensive show room over head. Behind the warerooms are several sheds and cellars for the reception of wet and heavy goods, and immediately in rear of them is a commodious wharf, which has been lengthened to such a degree as to permit ordinary steamboats to deliver goods thereon.....
