p.3 Saved His Bacon - The Oswego Palladium remarks: "Upon the arrival of the schooner George Suffel this morning she was boarded by officers Grant and Peterson, who were in search of a sailor named Jones, wanted at Kingston for burglary. Capt. Minaker says that Jones shipped on his vessel at Bath, en route to this port, but left her at McDonald's Cove, Bay of Quinte. If Jones had been aboard he could not have escaped, as the officers were on deck as soon as she reached the dock." Our contemporary has the thing a little mixed. The offence for which Jones (Hennessy) is wanted is robbery - snatching a watch from a man on Ontario Street last Saturday.

Yachting - in Cunningham's slip for winter can be found the Laura, Emma and Zitella - ten ton yachts; Merlin - 7 tons; Mystery and Valentine - 5 tons.
