British Whig (Kingston, ON), July 6, 1881

Full Text



The prop. Dromedary landed a large amount of freight this morning, principally glass and flour.

A barge while on its way from Montreal yesterday ran into a buoy and damaged her bow considerably. She belonged to the M.T. Coy.

There has not been a solitary marine accident of any consequence on the Canadian lakes so far this season. The insurance companies should grow fat on the profits they make by insuring vessels and cargoes.

There was quietness along the lake front today. Workmen were lying in the shade of lumber piles and the extremely hard working landing waiter serenely lounged in an arm chair, the only evidence of animation in him being an attempt to brush away the festive flies.
