p.3 Ashore - The schr. Scud is reported to be ashore at South Bay Point.

Refitted - The schooner Manzanilla has been thoroughly refitted at the marine railway and shipyard. She is loading 450 tons of phosphate for Chicago at $1.25 per ton.

Who Was He? - Canadian vessel captain saved from drowning at Oswego.

Freights - The Montreal Gazette has proven, at least to its own satisfaction, that the National Policy is not responsible for the diversion of the grain trade into American channels. It attributes the failure of the Canadian vessels to procure freights to the raise of ocean freights. That is one reason, no doubt; the canal tolls and Montreal harbor dues are another drawback. The agitation for free roads and free markets must be followed by perfect freedom in matters of navigation.

Our Vicinity - The schr. Ploughboy went ashore on Tuesday night five miles west of South Bay Point. She has been abandoned by her crew.

The Murray Canal project has been revived by Belleville, and is to be discussed at a public meeting to be held shortly.

The yachts of this city, Picton and Napanee have gone into winter quarters.

The Grain Market - eleven vessels cleared Trenton with grain.

New Buoys - a list of new ones in St. Lawrence: at Ironside Island, Carleton Island -Featherbed shoal.
