p.2 Internal Communication Between Lake Huron and the Bay of Quinte - a copy of a petition from inhabitants of Kingston, to the Provincial Legislature.

Improvement of the Trent - petition to Provincial Parliament pushing for work to be done.

letter to editor - if Mr. George's barge Quebec is as great as he says, that it can be used to climb rapids of St. Lawrence, then money won't have to be spent on improvements.

p.3 Commercial Wharf - We are happy to state that Mr. Truax, our enterprising fellow townsman, has leased for a term of 10 years, the wharves, warehouses, and water lots belonging to the Hon. Messrs. Kirby and Macaulay, at the foot of Store Street. A handsome wharf, to be called the Commercial Wharf, is immediately to be erected - length 158 feet, width 120 feet, with 3 store houses - the whole lot to be finished by the time the navigation opens and then placed under the superintendence of Mr. Barton Phillips. There will be sufficient water at the extremity of the new wharf for the largest sized steam vessels to lie with perfect ease and safety. [Kingston Whig]
