p.3 The Olive and Peerless - The case of Seeley vs. Foster, growing out of the collision of the above two steamers last fall between Smith's Falls and Merrickville, will come off in the Maritime Court at Kingston on the 12th instant. Capt. Foster has secured the services of Mr. B.M. Britton, who is now engaged preparing his defence.

Marine Notes - Freights have improved this spring, and according to shipping men, 7 cents a bushel is the rate from Chicago to Buffalo, and 10 cents is offered from Chicago to Kingston as soon as the ice clears away.

Short Notes - The Picton Gazette says that "the re-instatement of Mr. L. Hudgin to the position of Lighthouse keeper at Salmon Point, is regarded in a favorable light by the moderate Reformers as well as the Liberal Conservatives of Prince Edward County."
