p.2 The Weather - ... The Albion amd Dolphin steamers continue their regular trips between this port and Dickinson's Landing, at the head of the Long Sault. The Lake boats have retired to their winter quarters, with the exception of the Commodore Barrie, which is expected in the course of today from Toronto, being her last trip for the season.

The navigation of the Bay of Quinte is open nearly to Culbertson's Wharf at the Indian Woods - but from that to the Carrying Place the bay is covered with ice.

p.3 The Launch - Between 3 and 4 o'clock today the beautiful new steamer The Henry Gildersleeve, built by the Kingston Marine Railway Company, was launched into her destined element. After receiving her name from Miss Counter, she glided off the ways like a thing of life, amidst the loud and reiterated plaudits of thousands of spectators. The model of this vessel is of singular beauty, and reflects the highest credit upon Mr. Shay, the builder. launched by Miss Counter.
