p.2 Launch - Yesterday, a number of our citizens proceeded to the Dock Yard to witness a novel sight at this season of the year - the launching of a steamer. The ice had previously been cut away sufficiently to give the launch a fair berth, and precisely at 1 o'clock, the iron- framed warrior took his bottle of wine, his name and his departure, which latter was performed in gallant style by one of the Misses Bagot, amidst the hearty cheers of the assembled multitude. The Mohawk is built of iron, of a small size and handsome model, and is, we understand, to be propelled by an engine of 60 h.p.

p.3 ad for Barriefield Boat Company - boats for rent at Green Bay and Kingston, a 2 horse paddle boat to be built for spring.
