p.3 Claim For Salvage - Today Capt. J.F. Allen, before the County Judge, presented a claim for salvage due him by the schooner Flora Carveth. While on a trip down the lake the schooner ran ashore at the Brothers and was taken off by the Lady Franklin. The opposing counsel said that he was only entitled to towage. Mr. Allen's claim was acknowledged by the Judge and $100 granted him. It took precedence over the sailors' wages.

The New Steamer - The new steamer building for the Rideau Canal service at Wolfe Island, is nearly finished and ready for painting. It looks considerably like a lake propeller. There are eighteen staterooms for passengers, besides a saloon eighty feet long. The cabin is 14 x 18 feet. The engines and boilers are nearly finished. They will be put in as soon as the river is open. The steamer is well adapted for the route on which it is intended to run. It has been planned and built by Mr. R. Davis, a practical steamboat builder, who understands the wants of the Rideau Canal, he having run several boats on it during the past ten years.
