p.3 The Pierrepont Breaks Through - The steamer Pierrepont started out Monday afternoon from Folger's wharf, and after two hours' work crossed over very near to Garden Island. Around the shore the ice was easily broken, but out in the channel much difficulty was experienced. The steamer arrived back before six o'clock, having accomplished good work. This morning the Pierrepont again started out and made her way into Garden Island. This evening it was expected that Wolfe Island would be reached. The Washington excursionists were taken to the island by the steamer, and there transferred for passage to Cape Vincent.

p.5 Racing Yacht & Steam Launch - Henry Cunningham is having a sailing yacht built for racing purposes. It will be thirty-one feet over all, nineteen feet on the water line, and eight feet, six inches beam. Bowman Bros. are building a steam launch for Dr. J.C. Connell. The design is by Capt. Pierce of Portsmouth.
