p.2 Common Carriers' Bill - The defeat of this bill in the Senate has given great satisfaction to the forwarding and trade vessel owners of this city. They regarded the Bill as a novel inquitous blow at their rights.

p.3 Mill Point Items

From Captain Fuller who recently visited Mill Point we learn that business in that village is very brisk; that a number of hands are constantly employed at the works there, and that a large amount of work is being done in and about the shipyard.

The new steamer which is intended to ply on Toronto Bay has had her boiler placed in her, and had been planked and sealed. The schooner J.C. Clark is rebuilding and will be ready at the opening of navigation. The Kincardine is undergoing a considerable amount of repairs and will come out in first class shape in the spring. The schooner Paragon is loading with ice for Cleveland. The sunken schooner Newcastle will be raised as soon as the weather permits. Work on the new steam pleasure yacht is progressing fast, and she is being got ready for use with all possible speed; all her planking has already been laid. The schooner Antelope is on the ways. She will be provided with a new ceiling and new decks. Work has been begun on a twenty feet keel yacht. About 47 men are constantly employed in the shipyard. The tug H.B. Sherwood is being got ready for the opening of navigation.

Besides the above mentioned vessels there are four other schooners moored in or about that harbour, on all of which more or less work will have to be done. A large quantity of ice is being put away in the shipyard, which will be sent to Cleveland in the spring. The cedar mill is in full blast and employs a large number of men.

From the above it would appear that Mill Point is a lively village. May it continue to flourish. [Ontario]
