p.2 Lighthouse Supplies - A contract has been awarded to D.R. Van Allen & Co., of Chatham, to deliver light-house supplies to lights above Montreal, the steamer employed being the D.R. Van Allen.

p.3 Toronto, April 6th - The first departure of the season from this port took place yesterday. The schooner Battie cleared for Rochester with 190,000 feet of lumber. Several other vessels, laden with grain, are ready for sailing as soon as the ice shall have disappeared from the harbour a little more, which will probably be in a day or two. Buoys will be placed and lighthouses lighted for the first time, if the weather remains seasonable, on April 15th, when navigation is expected to be regularly opened.
