p.2 The New Wharves - The additions which have long been making to the wharf at the foot of Johnson street (now Capt. Bowens) are completed. The wharf has been greatly widened, newly planked, and strengthened, the better to suit the increased traffic which will doubtless be attracted to it this season. A few days will suffice to finish the planking of Kinghorn's old wharf, (now Anderson and Ford's), the outer portion of which has been completely rebuilt, and, judging from the strength and numbers of the new beams, it would be an immense strain that would test it to its utmost capacity.

- The steamer Bay of Quinte returned from Belleville yesterday afternoon. On the upward trip on Tuesday a good deal of heavy ice was met with in Big Bay, which for a time impeded the steamer's passage.
