p.3 The Steamboat Brothers, Captain Walter Eberts, is now plying between Amherstburgh, Detroit and Chatham. She has been on this route for years; and the attention shown to passengers, are acknowledged at all times. We are pleased to see that the Brothers has commenced running for the season. The accommodation thus afforded to the people of Chatham and neighbourhood, cannot be over-rated; and the tourist for pleasure might do worse than take a trip from Detroit up the river Thames, to view the picturesque scenery.

p.2 The Western Globe says that the ice is giving way on the North shore of Lake Erie. Two vessels from Cleveland had attempted, on the 1st instant, to make Port Stanley, but had failed.

The various vessels in Port Stanley are busy fitting out for the season. The warehouses are crowded with wheat, flour, pork, etc. etc., to a degree beyond all former precedent. Vessels are obtaining capital freight - in fact they seem to have the making of their own terms. The vessels at present fitting out in our harbour are the Niagara, Capt. Jackson; the St. Patrick, Capt. Wilson; the Louisa, Capt. Taylor; the Lady Colborne, Capt. Reading, and the Prosperity, Capt. Morrison.
