p.3 Notice of Motion - The loss of life on the lakes last season has led Mr. Fleming to give notice of an enquiry as to whether it is the intention of the Government to increase the number of storm signal stations, and also whether steps will be taken to ensure greater promptness and accuracy in giving storm warnings. Mr. G.W. Ross will move for an address for all the evidence collected in regard to wreckage in Canadian waters, particularly on the shores of Lake Erie, Ontario and Huron, and the St. Clair and Detroit Rivers. He also desires a statement of the moneys expended in connection with the same, and to whom paid.

The harbour at Bath is still clear of ice. The inhabitants think this fact should demonstrate the superiority of that port over all others as a shipping place for the counties of Lennox & Addington.

The Sailors Union will hold their annual assembly in the Victoria Music Hall, on Dec. 27th. A first class quadrille band has been engaged for the occasion.

Saving Time - Mr. Gildersleeve has begun the work of reconstructing the upper works of the str. Hero, and will have her ready at the opening of navigation. She saves an hour and one-half on the Hastings time to Belleville. The latter boat will be turned out remodelled in form for excursion business in June next.
