p.2 Navigation Laws - repeal would benefit inland carrying trade. [Quebec Mercury]

Village of Napanee - ...Vessels drawing 6 feet water can now easily ascend the Napanee River at all times to the village, and by a little improvement in the channel, 8 and 10 feet may be obtained....

p.3 The Ice on the Lake - The ice that has been forming for the past few months on the southern side of the peninsula, has, by the action of the wind, been thrown up in a very singular form in the past few days. At the rear of the hotel you may fancy a miniature fortification. It represents two batteries, with a glacis between sufficiently deep for a man to stand upright without being seen. To the curious it is worth inspection, as it is unlikely the cause that operated concurrently now, will according to the doctrine of chances, produce it again for a long period.

[Toronto Colonist]
