p.2 Port Hope Harbour - Our Harbor presents all the bustle of summer, last Sunday evening the large three masted Schooner, Indiana, from Oswego, with plaster, arrived here; and several Schooners are being loaded with pine lumber for Oswego. The fleet, which will be loaded, and ready for sea in a few days, will carry from fourteen to fifteen hundred thousand of feet Lumber. This is a pretty good beginning for the season's business. We understand that there will be between ten and twelve millions of feet sent from this Port the approaching season.

There is a new article of trade springing up this season, in the shape of Laths, which will soon be an item of considerable moment. We have noticed several waggons heavily loaded, pass down the street for the last fortnight, with sawed laths for the United States market. We shall be able at a future period, to give a fuller account of this new article of export. [Guide]

The Navigation - harbor still frozen at Hamilton; "Captain Masson intends to run the Rochester daily, between Lewiston and Wellington Square, till such time as the Bay opens." [Hamilton Canadian]
