p.2 Appointment - We are pleased to learn that Mr. Isaac Hope has been appointed to an inspectorship of lighthouses. The appointment is a good one, as it would be difficult to find a person better fitted for the office than Mr. Hope.

The Lake and Harbour - The ice has nearly disappeared from the lake and harbour, and is only visible in small broken masses piled by the wind upon the shores of the bays and creeks. As the floating ice cakes are again borne out into the warm open water of the lake, exposed to the full influence of the sun, they gradually but rapidly diminish, and carried by the current into the St. Lawrence, soon disappear.

Port Hope, March 23rd - The steamer Norseman has commenced her daily trips between here and Rochester making her first yesterday.

Kincardine, March 24th - The steam barge McKerrall, of Wallaceburg, arrived yesterday from Chatham for a cargo of lumber.
