p.2 Napanee Harbor - The eye is daily pleased with the clean spars and bright pennants of the schooners studding our harbor - taking in their several freights of lumber. Much of the pine forest of the interior stops here to take passage for other shores, and in getting underway gives employment to many hands, so as to make quite a stir among the craft. Acres of logs are lying in the river, on which many saws are doing daily duty - so as to fit them for their daily purposes - from the cradle to the coffin. To aid in the great work, of transforming logs into boards, Mr. Paul Wright is erecting a mill which will soon be completed. Mr. J.F. Bartels has become the lessee of several valuable water lots, on which extensive machinery, for a variety of purposes, will shortly be established. Progress here is the order of the day. [Standard]
