p.2 Creighton's Ramble No. 4 - on str. City of Kingston to Brewer's Mills and Jones' Falls on June 26th, fare 50 cents. June 14th

p.3 Those Unfortunate Steel Rails - Last evening the barge Robin, belonging to the estate of Holcomb & Stewart, sank in the bay of Portsmouth, having on board about 200 tons steel rails. We understand that the contractor was warned against overloading the barge, on account of its leaking condition, but he did not heed the warning. The consequence is that about $1,000 will have to be spent in raising the barge and the rails. These unfortunate pieces of metal seem to bring mishaps on all who have anything to do with them.
