p.3 Whistling - Last night just before twelve o'clock, a hideous whistling was started near Cataraqui Bridge, which highly disgusted some of the residents in that part of the city. There was one long scream of about two minutes duration, which was perfectly horrifying. Cannot the City Council pass a Bylaw to prevent this?

The Cape Route - As this was the last day that season tickets could be used the number of those who crossed on the Geneva was tolerably large.

Yachting Association - The Belleville Intelligencer favours the formation of a Yachting Association for Canada, which would be a very good thing.
