p.1 Misc. - A meeting of steamboat owners is to be held shortly in Hamilton. Among the questions to be considered is a proposal to reduce captains' salaries for the season something like 50 per cent. Should this be done the result will be to lose steamship and inferior men, and God help then the crowds who throng the lake boats on holiday or popular occasions.

p.3 Shipping Prospects - We were today shown a letter from a gentleman in Buffalo to the effect that the spring prospects for the shipping trade were just were just now better than they have been for several years. Ship carpenters are wanted in that city to work at $2 per day, there being a great deal of work on hand. The writer says that the indications there are good for a prosperous summer.
