p.1 Severe Storm - Pierrepont fights way to Cape Vincent; wooden storehouse which stood on the wharf at foot of Union St., belonging to Marine Railway, was blown down.

p.2 The Storm at Garden Island - lots of wood and cribbing blown away.

Charlotte (Rochester) March 17th - First Arrival - The Schooner Alliance arrived this afternoon from Toronto, with a cargo of 4,331 bushels of white wheat, consigned to Messrs. C.J. Hill & Co., of Rochester. The steamer Maple Leaf made a trial trip this P.M., leaving her dock at this place at 3 o'clock. She returned after an hour's absence, giving the officers the highest proof of the good working of her engines and machinery, and affording the invited guests on board a delightful excursion.

p.4 Steamers On the North Western Routes - From the Collingwood Enterprize we learn that the steamers Fountain City, Ontonagan, Hunter and Evergreen City are advertised to commence their trips between that town and Chicago on the first of next month. The steamer Canadian will run between Owen Sound and Collingwood. The same journal learns that two steamers will ply between Sault Ste. Marie and Collingwood. The Rescue will be on the same route as last year.
