p.2 Preparing - Preparations for the opening of navigation are everywhere observable. The steamers and sailing vessels which have been undergoing repairs in the ship-yards during the winter are rapidly approaching completion, and all will be ready to launch into their element at an early day. We observe that the fine steamer Bowmanville, which has undergone some necessary repairs, is being re-painted throughout, and her exterior already exhibits a clean and otherwise improved appearance. A large number of sailors and boat hands have arrived in the city during the past week to hold themselves in readiness for the opening of the season, and, altogether, the signs of an early resumption of the shipping trade are cheering.

p.3 Pelee Island, and Point Pelee Reef, Light Houses - Lake Erie - Notice is hereby given that on and after the 15th of April next, the Light exhibited on Pelee Island, near the upper end of Lake Erie, will be altered so as to show a bright red, and that on Pt. Pelee reef will be altered to a white light. Captains and Pilots of vessels will therefore bear in mind, that in passing up the Lake the white light will be on the starboard side, and the red light on the larboard side.

T. Trudeau, Secretary Dept't of Public Works.
