p.2 Small boats can now pass through a channel cut in the ice to open water, whence there is no obstruction to Garden Island.

p.3 Lake Superior Fisheries - The Detroit Tribune says:- "As another step towards the commercial greatness of the Lake Superior country, a greatness to be based entirely upon productive industry, and owing nothing to fictitious causes, the citizens of Superior have resolved, in public meeting, to organize a company for the purpose of more thoroughly and systematically prosecuting the fisheries of the lake. The company is to have the title of The Lake Superior White Fish, Salmon-Trout, Siscowit and Herring Fishing Company, with a capital of $100,000. Congress will be memorialized to extend the fishing bounties of the Newfoundland coast to the Lake region, and also to constitute the town of Superior a point of entry for fish. The President of the meeting was requested to prepare an address to be read at the next meeting, setting forth the advantages promised by the scheme on foot, and containing such suggestions as naturally grow out of the subject."
