p.2 Did Not Go To Cape - took passengers to Wolfe Island to be transferred by stage and ice boat to Cape Vincent.

p.4 Unique In Marine Annals - Brockville, Jan. 10th - Something unique in marine circles happened on Monday when the tug Queen, of Alexandria Bay, passed here en route to the Bay from Ogdensburg with the schooner Jessie in tow. Navigation on the St. Lawrence open until January 8th is something which does not happen once in twenty-five years. The ferry boat is still keeping the river open between here and Morrisburg, N.Y.

p.5 Pere Marquette Steamer - Detroit, Jan. 9th - A Manistee, Mich., despatch says R. and O. and A.B. McKay, Hamilton, Ont., have purchased the steamer Pere Marquette No. 2, of the Pere Marquette line of steamers, which has been used so successfully, summer and winter, in carrying passengers and freight for the Pere Marquette railway. This steamer will form the nucleus of a new passenger and freight steamer, between Hamilton, Toronto and Montreal. As she is an ice-breaking steamer, of large power, she will be able to keep navigation open all winter between the above-named ports.

p.8 Incidents of the Day - The steamer Pierrepont went across to the island at 11:30 o'clock this morning, taking the cape and island passengers.

The steamer Wolfe Islander did not make her trip across from the island this morning, being frozen in at Garden Island. She managed to get across at two o'clock this afternoon, however.
