p.2 The Works on Cobourg Harbour are progressing rapidly. Mr. Evans is making a capital job of tightening the Piers. The dredging is continuous, there being 2 horse dredges and 1 steam dredge constantly at work, so that by next fall we shall be able to take in all the vessels on the lake. The Messrs. Burnett are getting on famously with their new Piers, and the workmanship does great credit to those employed. By this time next year we shall have one of the safest and most commodious Harbors on the Lake. "Let Cobourg Flourish."
