p.3 The Ice Trade - There are now four vessels loading ice at Garden Island, the Bismarck, Siberia, Jessie H. Breck, and Norway. All the cargoes have been sold for Toledo, and Mr. Brand, a brewer of that city, is in town trying to get more. The ice is becoming so bad that if it is not loaded within 48 hours it will probably be useless.

The Yacht Countess of Dufferin - It is stated that Commodore Gifford, of Cobourg, owner of the yacht Countess of Dufferin, will most likely take her to England by the end of May for the purpose of trying to sell his vessel there. He intends taking two or three yachtsmen with him for instructions in ocean sailing, who will help him to defray expenses. The cost of passage is rated at $70 from Quebec to Southampton.
