p.3 A Trial of Speed - The steamers Passport and Admiral had a trial of speed between Prescott and Brockville in which the Admiral was the winner. The Recorder says that "the Admiral had but a few passengers on board, while the Passport's bow showed her drawing seven feet of water, and heavily loaded with passengers and freight. Had both boats been evenly loaded there is little doubt but the Passport would have came out victorious."

Launch of a Schooner - A new and beautiful schooner named Wm. Jamieson was launched at Mill Point on Saturday last. The Beaver says: "Never was a launch from the yard more smoothly and successfully made, and never did a more neat and trim little craft sit like a duck on the bosom of the bay. The lines of the new craft are beautiful, and she is as tightly put together as iron and live oak will accomplish. Her capacity is 11,000 bushels. She is intended for the bay trade, was built for Capt. Hinckley, of Kingston, and is valued at $9,000.
