p.2 The Gunboats - The harbor still retains its warlike appearance. The gunboats are still there, and there is no sign of the Cherub leaving for the upper lakes,or the Britomart going on the ways for repairs. The vessels lie at anchor off the city, and the public are becoming perfectly familiarized with them already, and will soon learn to look upon them as old acquaintances

Later in the afternoon the Britomart was being hauled out at the Marine Railway for repairs.

Imports - 6,7; Exports - 6,7.
