p.2 Side-Wheel Steamer For Sale - National, 105' x 22', 3 1/2 feet draught of water, at Montreal.

p.3 Saturday Trips - excursions on Maud and Princess Louise.

Regatta - Says the Belleville Intelligencer: Several of the yachts will go to Kingston on Dominion Day, if the purses are sufficient, and no shifting of ballast allowed, to try their mettle against the new ten ton craft which Cuthbert is now finishing at Trenton for a well-known popular yachtsman of Kingston.

Fine Catch - muskellonge off Simcoe Island - mentions grasping American fishing pirates.

N.P. Pudding - The proof of the pudding is in the eating. When the prop. Armenia went ashore recently at Salmon Point, she was lightened (as already reported) by the throwing overboard of about 5,000 bushels of her cargo. It was a rich harvest. The people for miles around flocked to the scene with small boats and fished up the corn. The weather being calm it lay in an immense heap in 10 feet of water, and was easily secured. Some of those living near have hundreds of bushels, which is but slightly damaged. The only charge to the fortunate ones was 12 1/2 cents per bag for the N.P. The Napanee Express wonders if those farmers know who pays the duty.

Wind Wafts - The schr. Reuben Dowd, from Kingston, loaded coal at Oswego for Milwaukee at 75 cents.

Welland Canal - Port Dalhousie, June 21st - Up: Schr. Niagara, Kingston, Pt. Colborne, light. Down: Schr. Itasca, Milwaukee, Kingston, corn; Vanvana, Chicago, do, corn.
