British Whig (Kingston, ON), June 14, 1879

Full Text

p.3 A Hardship - The sch. Undine, lately discharged here, brought a cargo of 10,000 bushels of wheat from Hamilton, at a freight of 1 1/2 cents per bushel. The master says he delivered all the grain received into the vessel. The weight was 94 bushels short of the reckoning at Hamilton. The deduction of the value of the wheat, with the charges for shovelling and elevating, gave the vessel only $4.85 for carriage of the cargo.

Wind Wafts - The tug Robb and barges ran ashore at the Ducks the other day. She was got off without damages.

When the prop. Armenia went ashore at Salmon Pt., 5,000 bushels of her cargo of corn had to be thrown overboard to lighten her.

Welland Canal - Down: Schrs. Antelope, Chicago, Kingston, corn; Pandora, Cleveland, do, do; Nassau, Chicago, do, do.
