p.2 For Sale - a first class double scull boat, 25' long with sliding seats, built by Tisdale Brothers, Belleville.

p.3 The Lachine Accident - The damage that occurred to No. 2 lock, Lachine Canal, is a matter of considerable interest to Kingstonians. The accident will cause a considerable interruption of traffic. At the present time (as we announced yesterday) about 350,000 bushels of grain are on the way down. It will arrive here probably tomorrow. The Montreal Transportation Company has 17 vessels consigned to them and only a few barges to discharge the cargo into. Consequently considerable loss may be incurred. But this is not all. Four of the Co's barges, the Duluth, Detroit, Glengarry and Energy, are in the canal basin high and dry. The grain in them will be damaged to some extent; considerable barge repairing will be recquired. Another barge, the Lalonde, is reported as having 4' of water in her. This morning a telegram was sent to the agent of the M.T. Co. here informing him that he was not to take any grain not actually consigned to them. The captains of the props that arrived here last evening were desirous of having their cargoes unloaded here.

This morning Capt. Donnelly with his diving apparatus left for the Canal lock to raise the sunken Bohemian.

Wind Wafts - The sch. Guelph, from Toledo, with corn, was the only vessel passing through the Welland Canal for Kingston yesterday.

Personal - Mr. William Ada, mate of the Corinthian, is acting as Captain of that steamer.She passed down the river this morning.

Funeral Obsequies - for Capt. Farrell.
