p.2 The ferry steamer, Pierrepont, continues her trips to Cape Vincent. Last season she ran until the 6th of January, but this year the mildness of the weather is such that there is a prospect of her running several days longer.

Death of a Well-Known Steamboat Captain - Capt. George E. Willoughby, formerly of the Lakes, as master of some of our most prominent steamers, died at Quebec on the 15th ult., in his 42nd year. Capt. W. very ably commanded the Emerald, London, Canada, Ocean, Atlantic, May Flower and Plymouth Rock on Lake Erie, and latterly the steamer Canada on Lake Ontario. As a commander of steam craft, he was, it may be safely said, one of the most popular of his day. He was well known among marine men, and his loss will be deeply regretted.
