p.2 editorial about trade with the West Indies - ..."last season, for the first time, 2 schooners from Lake Ontario engaged in the distant traffic. This year, more business is to be done in the same line. The steamer Western Miller, and the schooners Governor and British Queen, are now loading for Halifax, to bring back return cargoes of West Indie produce"... Upper Canadian schooners are well adapted for this trade.
