p.1 A New Lake Port - Sodus Bay - a scheme to divert trade from the St. Lawrence route to Hudson River. [N.Y. Herald]

p.3 Royal Mail Line - The Ogdensburg Advance man is tickled over the probability of the Royal Mail Line steamers stopping at that port this season and says: "It is now a settled fact that the steamers of the Royal Mail Line will touch at our wharves the coming summer. While they will not bring any business here it will be more convenient for travellers who have had formerly to cross the river. However, it will be some satisfaction to have steamers whistling and puffing around."
