p.1 Do Not Dump Into The Lake - Dr. Fee, medical health officer, has instructed the city commissioner to see that the filth and dirt from steamers and vessels here is not put into the harbor. In the past refuse from vessels has been swept into the harbor, and the practice is contrary to law. The harbor master will be asked to investigate this matter. The doctor says he will prosecute all offenders.

MARINE INTELLIGENCE.

On Monday men will commence to repair the schr. Ella Murton.

The steamers Michigan and St. Magnus are having $12,000 expended on them at Port Dalhousie.

L. Tetro will leave in a few days for Port Huron to take the position of chief engineer of the steambarge Magnesia.

Many bets have been made lately as to the time the str. Pierrepont will be able to reach the islands. Some contend that she will be able to break her way through the first week in April.
