p.2 New Piers and Harbour at Cole's Cove - Mr. Samuel S. Cole has put out nine good substantial piers, 365 feet in length and 8 feet in water, well loaded with stone and now ready for planking. He intends opening out a road direct to Colborne and building storehouses sufficient to store all the flour and other produce required for shipment. Next year he intends adding 100 feet more piers which will give from 12 to 13 feet at the end of pier when completed. There is now eight feet of water at end of pier, with good anchorage and shelter for vessels from South, South-west and North-west winds. The Pier runs out nearly East into the lake. Mr. Grover's Schooner Isabella delivered part of a cargo on it a few days since. It is Mr. Cole's intention to apply to Parliament at its next session for a charter of said harbour, and also for £250, a small sum, to enable him to complete his piers, etc. next year.

Mr. Cole certainly deserves great credit for his enterprising spirit, and we trust that Government will not only grant Mr. Cole the necessary assistance to complete his piers, but make Colborne a port of entry, and give Mr. Cole the Collectorship. [Cobourg Star]

preparations for receiving the Governor General - ..."The man-of-war steamer Cherokee, Capt. Fowell, went up to Queenston a few days ago to take His Lordship and Suite thence to Toronto, and will in all probability bring him down to Kingston.Gov-Gen. to Toronto."
