Full Text

A company composed of P.P. Miller, Richard Humphrey, P. Davis, Capt. Maythem and Dexter Baxter, have established a new ferry line between Black Rock and Bridgeburg, Ont. A boat formerly used at Detroit for similar purpose has been purchased, and will have every facility for transporting teams and single rigs, besides large passenger cabins. The boat is 105 ft. long and 45 ft. wide.
      Work has begun on the new docks at the foot of Hamilton St. immediately, which will cost about $2,000. The docks at Bridgeburg are in good shape, and with a few repairs will be as good as new.
      This is something Black Rock has needed for a long time, and will add greatly, we think, to business interests in this part of the city. It will also be of great advantage to our Canadian friends. The boat will make trips every half hour, the first of which will be run June 1.
