p.3 Arrived All Right - The Brockville Recorder says that Mr. K. Scovill left Brockville with the steam yacht Allie on Wednesday evening at half-past five o'clock for Kingston, and considerable speculation was indulged in as to how she weathered the storm. Upon enquiry we find that she arrived here all right, and after coaling left for the Rideau Canal.

Laid Up - The steamer Spartan, of the Royal Mail Line, arrived here today at 1:30 o'clock, and immediately went into winter quarters. The crew left for their respective homes. The Spartan, at Port Hope, was run into by a steambarge and had her paddle-box smashed. No other damage was done. The traffic by this line is now ceased, after a successful year.

The East's Accident - About five years ago the propeller East ran into an American tug in American waters, near Prescott. The owner sued in the United States courts for damages, procuring judgement, and finally seized the vessel and sold her. On Thursday the propeller arrived at Port Hope as a barge, her engines having been removed, and word was conveyed to Mr. McLennan, of Darlington, who held a mortgage on her when she was seized by the United States authorities, so he came down here and took possession of the vessel. He telegraphed, however, to release the barge, and it is presumed his claim has been satisfied.
