p.2 A Handsome Boat - We had the pleasure of examining a very handsome boat today at Cunningham's boat yard, the property of Mr. Crevoline, Cape Vincent, N.Y. It was 18 1/2 feet keel, 3 ft. 8 in. beam, 16 inches high, built of pine, black ash and black walnut varnished. It has moveable seats in the bow and stern, a neat fish box, gaff and mallet, the knees are 4 1/2 inches from centre to centre, and an arrangement of silver on each side for the oars, adds greatly to the beauty of its appearance. Altogether, it is the handsomest boat we have ever seen. The price was $125, and it was by Mr. Collen, of Clayton. Mr. Crevolin rowed over today in about two hours and three-quarters from the Cape.

Reciprocity With Canada - Oswego, May 27th - The Board of Trade today passed resolutions requesting our Senators and Representatives in Congress to aid so far as possible in the re-establishment of reciprocal trade relations between the United States and Canada for the purpose of making the advantages, likely to be derived by our citizens from the proposed treaty, more nearly equal to those of our Canadian neighbors than they are believed to have been by the former treaty. The Board recommends the use of the Canadian canals connecting the upper lakes with tide water, and particularly of the Welland Canal which should be made absolutely free to vessels and cargoes of the United States and to our products when carried in Canadian bottoms.

The Saucy Jack broke from her moorings at Mill Point on Monday, and was lifted by the waves over a boom and between the saw logs. No serious damage was done to the schooner.
