p.3 The Flight - This pretty little steamer is now in the hands of Captain Swales who intends employing her during the season in plying down the river, up the Bay and among the Islands. She has been newly painted, varnished and fitted up and looks as neat as she is comfortable, she is also very swift having yesterday carried a private party down to Brockville in five hours. She could easily accommodate a hundred persons and for private picnics and excursions is sure to be very popular.

Accident - An accident of a somewhat serious character happened on board the schooner Brooklyn at Garden Island this morning. She is unloading timber there, and while a log was being hauled out one of the timber dogs gave way, and struck a young man named Daniel Mulvany in the face, injuring him severely. He was rowed across to Kingston and taken home, where Dr. Sullivan attended him, and he is likely to recover.
