p.2 Portsmouth - It would do you good, Mr. Editor, to see the busy time we are having out here; our little bay is being crammed just now with steamers, schooners and barges, all looking for shelter for the winter, and repairs, etc., for the ensuing summer; and as we have plenty of men and material of the best, they will not be disappointed. We are much indebted to our present very efficient council for their energy in procuring (through the instrumentality of the Hon. Alexander Campbell), a patent for the site of the harbor, and completely renovating the breakwater, making it "better as new." Macpherson's yard - of old renown - has been taken by one of your enterprising forwarders, who is busy repairing the old "ways," for the purpose of hauling out his barges to put them in good trim for next year's work, so that I think we shall have a busy winter and they a prosperous summer. So may it be.


p.3 Imports - 30.

Lachine Canal - notice that water will be drawn off for winter, no vessels to be left in level between Cote St. Paul and Lachine. Dep't of Public Works Nov. 28th
