The River Disasters - editorial.

Annual Excursion - on str. Maud to Carleton Island.

p.3 Dismissed - The action of the schr. O.M. Bond against the propeller Prussia, for damages, as the result of a collision, was dismissed, having been tried before Judge Blodgett at Chicago. The collision occurred in the Welland Canal on Aug. 18th, 1877, and the judgement was to the effect that the evidence did not show that the propeller had been unskillfully managed, that the vessel being flat-bottomed it seemed most probable that the injury was received in the basin.

Grand River Excursion - steamer Oswego Belle, John Pinder Captain and Rob't McCaul as Engineer, from Oswego to Kingston, Clayton and Alexandria Bay.
