Full Text

p.2 Incidents of the Day - Portsmouth is in a state of bustle and excitement, caused by the spring arrival of Frenchmen to command the barges of the K. & M.F. Co. They came in during the early hours of the morning, and the familiar "Cobla, Joe, cobla" has kept the villagers in a wakeful state.


The schooner Falconer cleared for Charlotte.

Crawford's wharf: schooner Acacia cleared for Oswego.

M.T. company elevator: tugs Hall and Bronson clear down tonight with a number of grain-laden barges; S.S. Rosemount and consorts will arrive tomorrow tonight from Fort William; schooner Ballou from bay ports with 4,000 bushels of rye and peas.

p.8 Incidents of the Day - A well known steamer has been lying in the harbor all spring awaiting a certificate of inspection, which is not forthcoming, as the steamer is considered unseaworthy.
