p.2 The Harbor, Cobourg - It is now settled that we are to go on with the improvement of the Harbor with the least possible delay. These improvements consist in extending the piers parallel with each other about 240 feet. This it is supposed will give us more water, prevent the formation of a bar at the mouth of the harbor, and deaden if not prevent altogether the swell inside the T. While speaking of our harbor we may mention that Captain Childs and Mr. Eaton were here on Wednesday last and laid before some of our leading men a project for running a daily steamer between Cobourg, Port Hope and Rochester, to commence about the 15th May next. They had been well received in Port Hope and a promise held out to them that that town would take its share of stock, $7,000, if Cobourg would do the same. We suppose that our townspeople will take the required amount of stock by private subscription. Our Mayor with his usual liberality and enterprise has we believe taken $1,000, or one-seventh of the whole sum required. [Star]
