p.2 A Man Overboard - One of the hands of the steamer Ontario, in attempting to jump on to the boat from the wharf as she was leaving the dock this morning, fell into the water, and escaped with a thorough good ducking. Being pretty agile, he seized a rope which was hanging from the steamer and got on board without the slightest difficulty.

Barque Wirralite - The barque Wirralite from Liverpool did not leave for Hamilton until this morning, having been detained here longer than was intended, owing to two of the hands refusing to proceed further with the vessel, although engaged for the round trip. Legal proceedings were threatened, but the matter was arranged without resorting to extremes.

p.3 Imports - 30,31; Exports - 30,31.
