p.3 Recovering - Capt. Gormley, who was the victim of a brutal assault, near Bath, is recovering rapidly under the care of Doctor Sullivan.

New Steamer - Capt. Rothwell, owner of the Crusoe, informs the Gananoque Reporter that he is now building a new boat especially for the routes centering at Gananoque. The new steamer will be 33 feet in length, 16 feet beam, driven by a screw, but of light draught of water, guaranteed to obtain a speed of 12 miles per hour. The model is something like that of the Geneva, but rounder on the sides. She will be strongly built, steady and safe. She is now on the ways on Wolfe Island, and will be ready for launching in a few weeks, and will probably be running some time in May.
