p.2 Bath - str. Picton ran on Rose's bar, about 1/2 mile west of Bath in fog, pulled off by Alexandria.

-W.C. - 22.

-Fishing District - We are glad to learn that Matthew Van Order has secured a lease of the fishing grounds at Pigeon Island, so long held by the late Mr. Eccles, but unused since the decease of the late respected lessee. Yesterday a large consignment of salmon was delivered at the fish market, a fine specimen of which we acknowledge the receipt of. The collection of fish was one of the choicest ever seen here. We are further pleased to state that that Mr. Van Order has taken a "new departure", which will be appreciated by the people of Kingston and district. His catch instead of going direct to the American market, will be devoted to the supply of this and the neighboring towns, and if there be any surplus it will be cured and shipped to other points in the Province.

In this business Mr. Van Order deserves success, and we hope it will attend his policy.

p.3 Swifts Wharf - steamers calling.
