p.2 Coburg Harbour - Owing to the rapid filling up of our Harbor with sand, we fear there cannot be much business done here next summer, unless Government choose to dredge it out. This we fear they will not do as they have decided that in future they will not meddle in local works; and we know the Harbor Company cannot do it. Therefore it is highly probable that we shall have to ship and unship by Port Hope and Grafton; or else take to the primitive plan of Scows and Batteaux. Government should not be so like the dog in the manger; they should either give up the Harbor to the Company, or else take it off their hands and keep it in proper order. [Star]
