p.2 Montreal - old steamer Richelieu, of Montreal Harbor Commission, sunk at Cape Madelain in 20' of water by tug Rocket last fall, to be raised.

p.3 River Mishaps - On Saturday night the steamer Wanderer left the Thousand Island House for the Hub House, near Crystal Bay, having many passengers on board. The captain did not know the route, and placed the helm in charge of a boy, who professed to understand his business. The youth, however, failed to safely direct the steamer's course, and she ran on a rock. The passengers were rescued, and carried to the Park in small boats, but in the dark one of them was run down and the occupants of it upset, but picked up none the worse for their ducking. The Wanderer was yesterday taken off the rock.

Wind Wafts - A. Gunn, S. Harper and W.G. Craig, of Kingston, and - Scott and T. Cramp, of Montreal, have been incorporated by the name of The Kingston and Montreal Forwarding Company, with a capital of $200,000.

The yacht Kathleen won the race for the presentation flag on Friday at Belleville, beating the Gracie by one minute and fifty seconds.

Passed Up - steam yacht Mystic.
