p.2 The Bay State's Trip - Now we have it right. The Bay State made the trip from the Niagara River to Ogdensburgh, via Toronto, in 14 hours - a splendid performance.

Progress of Port Hope Harbor - The new Piers have been built up in a substantial manner, and the old Piers are about to be stripped and rebuilt also. We understand it is the intention shortly to begin a new Harbor to the West of the present one. Two Piers will be run out 250 feet apart, into fifteen feet water, and the Beach dredged away so as to afford easy entrance to the inner basin.

The Cobourg Harbor is rapidly advancing towards completion. The dredge works admirably and is fully capable of giving three scows constant employment. The Messrs. Burnett are proceeding with their contract with great rapidity and will doubtless have the Quay completed this fall. Masters of Vessels would do well to remember Cobourg when they are selecting a Port at which to lay up their Vessels during the Winter. Not only would they be perfectly safe, but they could go to Sea at any time, our Harbor seldom or ever being frozen. Rents are low, board cheap, and we have one of the best supplied markets in Canada. [Star]
