p.2 Counter vs. Macpherson & Crane - judgement, mentions that Counter was to relinquish his forwarding business in favour of respondents (deals with aftermath of fire of April 18th, 1840).

New Vessels - A new class of vessels equal to the present capacity of the enlarged Welland Canal are making their appearance in our Harbor. Among them we notice the new schooner Scotland, Captain Cochran, built at Perrysburg on Lake Erie during the last winter, for Messrs. Carrington & Pardee of this village. She arrived here on the 15th with 7,000 bushels of wheat from Milan, Ohio, with which she passed the Welland Canal without the least obstruction. The cargo was erroneously reported at 700 bushels in our paper of Saturday.

The new brig Hampton built the past winter at Point Peninsula for Messrs. Fitzhugh & Co., of this village is now taking freight for the upper Lakes. She is of about 300 tons burthen and will pass the canal with 10,000 bushels of wheat.

A stilll larger brig called the T. Wiman, was launched from the ship yard on the East side of the river a few days ago. She is said to be the largest vessel yet built for the upper Lake trade, and is of more than 300 tons burthen. [Oswego Whig ?]
