p.2 Sailor's Assembly - The sailor's assembly in the City hall, on Tuesday evening, was a great affair and thoroughly enjoyed by all those who attended it. The hall was decorated with flags and bunting and looked very gay. Salsbury's orchestra furnished the music and dancing was kept up until about two o'clock this morning. There were about one hundred present, and all had a good time. The committee of management were: H. Darryaw, Charles Storms and F. Darryaw (Daryaw, Daryeau ?).

p.5 Wolfe Island, Jan. 30th - The Wolfe Islander intends to make a trip to Amherst Island, on Wednesday morning, and return that afternoon, as there is a lot of freight to come and go to the above island, and no other way of getting it there. E. Briceland, manager, will try and accommodate the islanders, and also make a paying trip for the steamer.

p.8 Incidents of the Day - After being without communication with the mainland since December 20th, when the steamer Aletha made her last trip, the Amherst Islanders were allowed a peep at the outside world, today, when the ferry steamer Wolfe Islander made a trip there.
