p.2 Sale of Schooners - The large three-masted schooners Superior and Ontario were sold at auction on Monday, and brought £2500 each. The Superior was, we understand, purchased by Mr. E. Hooker and Capt. Taylor, and the Ontario by Mr. Waters, of Port Stanley.

Ontario Marine & Fire Insurance Company of Hamilton - first annual report - (part) ... "Having suffered some inconvenience during the past season for the want of a proper Register of the Craft navigating our Inland waters, the Directors have taken measures to remedy it, by causing one to be prepared under the personal supervision of a gentleman well qualified by long experience, who is also engaged to act as Marine Surveyor and Town Agent to the Company. They feel pursuaded the advantages of this step will far more than counterbalance the expense attending it, as it will put the Company in a position to know at once the character on which Insurance is requested, while it secures the permanent services of a qualified person, always ready at its call, either in town or for duties requiring his attendance at a distance, where promptness is frequently all essential."
