p.1 ad - Str. Bay of Quinte, Capt. Frank Comer, with schedule. April 20th.
p.2 Shipping News - The harbour begins to show signs of awakening life. Among the vessels the last finishing touch of paint is being given, sails are either bent or are in progress of being so, and everywhere business is being hurried on with all expedition. Some vessels have already left port and each day will see others following. The schooner Thermutis left today for Cape Vincent to take in a cargo of iron ore for Buffalo. This was the first vessel out. The barque Arabia started today with her cargo of ice for Chicago, and the schooner Jessie Drummond, to the same destination with a similar cargo, also left this afternoon. The barque Monarch will leave this evening for Oswego to load with coal for Chicago. The tug Swan left here last night for Brockville to tow up the barques John Breden and Waterwitch which will take in ballast here. The steamer Bay of Quinte will make her first trip on Thursday morning next. Sailors' wages from this port are from $18 to $20 per month. Mr. Thomas Smith, lumber merchant, has purchased the steamer Advance (not the Avon) for the lumber trade on Lake Simcoe. She will proceed tomorrow to Toronto and thence per railway to the Lake in the same manner as was adopted with the Jones two years since. The propeller Avon has been bought by Captain Hartley, of Collingwood, for $6,000, and it is the intention to establish a trade between that port and Kingston. The schooner Annie Craig left Portsmouth for Port Dalhousie today.
