p.2 The Weather - harbor is still open, but Bay of Quinte is closed.

The Gore - We trust that the fears entertained for the safety of this vessel will prove entirely unfounded. Accounts have been received of her safe arrival at Sault St. Marie, which is 45 miles from the Bruce Mines.

The Last Trip - The Steamer Magnet arrived here from Kingston last night at eight o'clock, and will in all probability be the last boat for the season. She left Kingston on Thursday at midnight, with a heavy freight list, and a number of cabin and steerage passengers. The weather was very cold, and a heavy sea ran down the Lake, but the Magnet went through it in splendid style, and discharged freight at Cobourg, Port Hope, Bond Head, Darlington, and Oshawa, in passing. The Magnet has been the "crack boat" of the season; her Commander, Capt. Sutherland, is highly popular with every one, and we doubt not that in the keen competition of next season she will continue to hold her own. [Globe]
