p.3 Laid Up - The Algerian and Corsican have laid up for the winter at the foot of Clarence Street. The Spartan makes one more trip and then she will follow suit. The Royal Mail Line have been quite successful during the year, considering the competitors.

Wind Wafts - The propeller Persia unloaded 17,000 bushels of corn at Wiser's distillery last week. Another cargo is expected this week. The trade in whiskey is booming.

The Telegraph says that the Government chain tug, which has been laid up at Prescott for three years, has been taken to Montreal to be fitted up for work in the Galloup Rapids next summer.

The steamer Algerian has been laid up for the winter.

Quite Feasible - The Prescott Telegraph remarks: "Prescott is naturally better fitted for transporting grain than Kingston, and the whole immense grain trade of that port might eventually be brought to Prescott, if there were ample storage and facilities for rapid unloading." The natural advantages in which Prescott excels are very light in coming to light, and it is singular that none of the many forwarding firms or vessel owners have hitherto discovered them. They are very blind to their own interests, apparently. All that Prescott has to do in the line of equipment is to buy four floating elevators and forty barges, and then it will be as well off for storage and transportation as Kingston. And sorry we are to acknowledge it.
