p.2 Imports - 4,6,7.

p.3 Wrecking - The Oswego Palladium in a recent issue said that as American boats were not allowed to do wrecking in Canadian waters, Canadians should not be permitted to do likewise in American waters, and suggested that some one should stop the operation of Calvin & Breck's steamer assisting the schooner Blanche at Putneyville.(sic) We are aware that on Lake Erie the international law is pretty rigidly enforced, but never on Lake Ontario to our recollection, for American tugs trade and operate on the Canadian side as much as they please. Under these circumstances we may, in friendly spirit, repeat the stereotyped phrase used by the Palladium and say, "What is sauce for the goose is surely sauce for the gander."
