The Canadian Government has established a lifeboat station at Cobourg, and a [unreadable word] lifeboat built by Francis, of New York, has been placed there. It is fitted for four oars, and a captain or steersman, and is also furnished with a wagon, so that it can be conveyed to distant parts of the coast. Arrangements will be made for a horse to take it where it may be required. A captain and crew of four will be appointed, and they will drill twice a week during the season of navigation. The men will be furnished with the most approved description of cork jackets and the boat will have life-buoys attached to it. The municipality of Cobourg has agreed to provide a suitable boat-house, where the lifeboat can be kept ready for service at any moment.
