p.2 Pure Water - dirty drinking water taken from wharf at end of Store St. "where the various deposits from steam-boats, schooners, scows, cutters, etc., etc., mingle with the 'limpid stream' and on rainy days such as yesterday, the washings of the streets and gutters form no inconsiderable contribution to the 'ingredients of the Cauldron'." Mr. McIntyre of the Marine Railway can draw water from the end of the drydock wharf, which will be better to drink.

p.3 More Deaths by Drowning - a deckhand named Sullivan on steamer Cobourg fell overboard off Toronto and drowned; on return trip 2nd mate John Richardson disappeared near Cobourg.

- yet another letter to editor signed Fair Play in response to last from Forwarder.
