p.2 The Marine Supper - On Thursday evening there was a grand gathering of mariners and shipowners and friends at St. Catharines, and the News of that town says that the event will form a new era in the nautical history of that district; and will tend to cement together in closer bonds of friendship all those who have a part or share in advancing the interests of our country's marine. Too little attention has been paid to this important class of our community, who are bound to exercise such an important influence on the future of our great Dominion.

Ice Boats - These useful craft are being put in preparation for service. The ice is covered today with about five inches of water, with a prospect of becoming of greater depth. Sleighing across the channel is quite good, but rather unpleasant owing to the great quantity of slush. It is questionable how long the ice-bridge may last. The prospects of a lengthy tenure of office are rather blue.
