Full Text



The str. Algerian has arrived and gone into winter quarters.

The str. D.C. West left this morning on her last trip down the Rideau.

Sailors are now shipping at whatever rate they like to ask and can secure. They are bound by no restrictions.

Sunday night somebody let go the line of the schr. Snowbird, lying at one of the elevator docks at Oswego, and she ran into the upper island, taking ouit her jibboom. A tug rescued her.

The schr. Gold Hunter, with coal from Oswego to Toronto, was towed into the harbor this morning by the F.A. Folger. She was leaking badly. She anchored off the Queen's wharf. The coal will probably have to be taken out of her here.

The schr. Cavalier, which left Collinsby on Saturday for Buffalo, has returned disabled, owing to the splitting of her square topsail off the Ducks. She has been ordered to lay up, and in all probability during the winter will be converted into a barge as a consort of the tug A.D. Porter.

Deseronto Notes - steam barge Saxon struck dock, one of crew fell overboard and got jammed against dock.

A Man Missing - from prop. Ontario.

The Sunken Camanche - The Mail is mistaken in the statement that the Canadian Wrecking Companies are engaged in an effort to raise the schr. Camanche, sunken in the Welland Canal. Canadian tools are in use, but under the direction of American masters. There can be no doubt that if Capt. Donnelly and his assistants had undertaken the work it would have been accomplished in not more than 24 hours.

Assistance Acknowledged - to men who helped on Atalanta while passing through Erie Canal.

Case Dismissed - The case against Capt. Mulligan of the str. Swan, for obtaining $200 from W. McIntyre under false pretences, heard at Ottawa, was dismissed with costs.
