The tug Bronson arrived at the M.T. company wharf with two coal laden barges, and cleared for Oswego and Fairhaven with two light barges.

It is considered that the marine business on the great lakes the coming season will be the most prosperous for years. The shipment of grain will be large and vessel owners will obtain lucrative prices. Coal and iron ore vessels will get good prices.

Launch Of A Frigate - Here is an item from Kingston about the launch of a government frigate in a Toronto newspaper of January 15th, 1815. It reads:

"Yesterday an attempt was made to launch the frigate Psyche, which did not succeed owing to the severity of the cold. This day she went safely into her element in a most handsome style. She is a beautiful ship."

p.8 Yacht Owners Beware - Chapter 79, revised statutes, to prevent collisions, requires lights to be shown.
