p.5 Saginaw Reached Cobourg - The steamer Saginaw, which left here Friday morning at nine o'clock, reached there that evening at eight o'clock. She made a fine trip. John Donnelly received a telephone message announcing the arrival of his company's boat.

p.8 Incidents of the Day - The fire on the steamer North King on Friday did not do very much damage. The interior of one or two rooms were burned, and a few dollars will cover the damages.

p.4 Will It Be Leased? - Wolfe Island, Jan. 24th - ....The reeve and Councillor Keys were delegated to settle the threatened action of the Cataraqui Bridge company against the township, caused by the steamer Wolfe Islander last summer. There are several applicants for the captaincy and pursership. A manager will have to be appointed, as ex-Reeve Briceland's time expires the first of February. It is stated that Thomas Hutchinson is anxious to charter the steamer, and when the council convenes the first of February, he will make an offer. Many hold to the opinion that it would be better if the boat was chartered to some individual, proper security to be given, the council to fix rates and specify trips. Very many think the contrary, and for that reason the pros and cons are being discussed.
