p.2 ad - Twice A Week to Oswego & Rochester - R. & O. Navigation Co. - Royal Mail and Express Line - schedule. Sept. 12th

p.3 Royal Mail Line - Commencing on Sunday next the Royal Mail steamers will discontinue their calls at Clayton and Alexandria Bay. The altered arrangements may be seen in the advertisement.

From the Briny - There arrived this morning in port the schooner Higgle, owned in Chicago, but for a number of years in service on the briny. She has made trips to Spain, Portugal, France and England, and is now going up to Chicago with a cargo of Liverpool salt. She is a three-master and one of the best vessels ever built on the lakes.

Accident - The schooner J.D. Sewyer (sic - Sawyer ?), Capt. Langan, was compelled, by heavy weather, to come to anchor off Escanaba Point. A heavy squall caused her to drag her anchor, and finally to part her chain. It was a close thing to get canvass on her soon enough to save her from beaching on the islands. Capt. Langan was struck on the head by the chain and quite severely bruised, but not seriously injured. She loses her best anchor and 100 fathoms of chain.
