p.1 The Lake and River Steamers - The shipping community, owners of steam craft especially, are actively engaged in arranging for the approaching summer trade. Lately a meeting of the members of the Hamilton Lake & River Steamship Line was held, and it was decided that the following boats will run between Chicago and Montreal for the Lake and River Steamship Line during the season of 1873: Lake Michigan, Huron, Lake Erie, Lake Ontario, Osprey, Canada, Columbia, California, Calabria, Dromedary and City of Chatham. With the exception of the Osprey and Dromedary, they are all new. The boats will be despatched regularly from Montreal to Toronto, Hamilton, Welland Canal ports, Toledo, Detroit, Milwaukee and Chicago. Besides these there are about a score of new propellers now building at different places in this Province, which will likely nearly all navigate the same route.

p.2 Robbery From A Vessel - Owen Sound, March 5th - Last Monday night some person or persons broke on board the steamer Waubuno, lying in the river, and stole all her plate and other small articles. Some of the missing forks, having the vessel's name on, were found this morning under the swing bridge. The police are on their track.

Marriage - On Tuesday, the 4th inst., at the Bishop's Chapel, Ottawa, by the Rev. H. Pollard, Capt. J. Dix, of Kingston, to Martha A., eldest daughter of Captain Jones, of Ottawa.
