Full Text



The tug Robb did not come to Kingston, but has laid up at Toronto.

The schr. Geo. Suffel will make about three trips more from Bath to Cape Vincent. She will carry barley at 4 cents.

The schr. L.D. Bullock has been laid up at Batteau Channel. Capt. Theo. Eccles says the craft had a good season.

The schrs. O. Baldwin and Cossack went ashore at Cleveland this morning in a furious gale. The crews were saved.

The schr. Philo Bennett is still running, and will continue to do so until the season closes, even although it does not do so until next March. She will ply between Kingston and Deseronto.

The schr. Eliza Quinlan, from Cape Vincent for Kingston, ran ashore below Cedar Island last night. She missed stays and went on quite high. The tug F.A. Folger went down this morning and took her off.

The schooner Millard Fillmore, lately damaged by a break in the canal, got off the dry dock at Port Dalhousie on Monday, after having a new stern put in. She commenced taking on a deck load of iron today, and after receiving other repairs will be towed through the new canal to Port Colborne and lay up there for the winter. She met with an accident while on the dry dock, her jibboom falling to the ground through some mistake in lowering the wire guys.

Personal Mention - C.W. Crowley, President of Kingston branch, left for Milwaukee, for annual meeting of Sailors' Union.
