p.3 Concert at Garden Island - put on by Island inhabitants (details).

The str. Pierrepont stuck in the ice this morning.

Loading Ice - We are informed that as many as 50 men are engaged in ice cutting in Collinsby. Two vessels are loaded, and now the "congealed fluid" is being piled upon the banks of the bay for shipment as soon as barges or vessels can be brought from Portsmouth. This weeks cold snap has been a boon to icemen.

Drowned - Yesterday a horse, engaged for hoisting ice into the schooner Norway, at Garden Island, ran away taking the plow with it. The foolish animal raced into the open water and was drowned.

The Fish Market - Mr. M. Van Order had to give up fish business because he could not get the Market Committee to put the fish market building in a tenantable shape. He wants to begin business, building needs floor and pump.
