p.2 The Corinthian has been towed into Fenwick's slip, foot of Earl street, where she will remain during the winter, and have her engines, etc., put in by Mr. Tutton of the Ontario Foundry. This slip has heretofore been the general landing place for the Wolfe Islanders, but owing to the removal of Fenwick's Hotel, the slip at the foot of Gore street will be used this winter.

The Route of the Corinthian - We have been requested to state that there is every probability that the route on which the new iron steamer is to be placed will be between Cobourg and Rochester, on which the Empress has been running, and not on the Bay of Quinte, as previously contemplated. The Empress goes up to Port Hope this week, so as to be ready to resume her trips in early spring, and until the Corinthian is ready to take her place on the above route. The hull of the Bay of Quinte will be rebuilt this winter, to fit her for continuing on her old route, for which there is not a better steamer afloat, she having become an "institution" on the Bay.

County Court - Ansley vs Sparham - Action to recover amount of an account for labor and service in the building of a scow. The claim is for between 150 and 170 days' labor at $1.25 per day, and the defendant puts in a contra account for board and lodging during the time the scow was building, of 170 days at $1.50 per day. The scow was since sold for $800. It was proved by the defence that an agreement had been entered into between the parties to pay the plaintiff $25 and his board for overseeing the building of the scow, but it was also proved that the plaintiff had worked at the scow as well, and for this manual labor he brought his claim. Verdict for ____ $. Sir Henry Smith, Q.C., for plaintiff; B.M. Britton for defendant.
