p.2 Clayton - Our American neighbors at the promising little town of Clayton (French Creek) are building 3 large schooners, a powerful tug and a small ferry boat. It is for the former of these that the large spars which are arriving per railroad from Grafton are intended. The remaining spars are being taken hence over the ice by teams.

Preparing For Business - The crews of the barques British Lion and Robert Gaskin proceeded yesterday to Maitland, where the vessels have wintered, accompanied by Capt. Gaskin, their owner, to prepare for the opening of navigation, which present appearances indicate to be close at hand. Both these barques will load with cordwood for Chicago.
