p.3 Late Navigation - schr. Nellie Sherwood cleared for Cape Vincent with 6,000 bushels barley today.

A Case Decided - Yesterday, at the Hamilton Assizes, the owner of the schr. Ella Murton sued the Kingston & Montreal Forwarding Company for the value of 494 bushels of grain, an overplus after discharging her cargo. At the time of the discharge it was found that a draft entering the vessel had not been counted. The Judge decided that the vessel had no right to the overplus, and did not allow the case to go to the jury.

A Quick Passage - To see a vessel loaded with grain leave this port on the 12th of January is a circumstance unknown for years at least. At 11:30 o'clock the sails of the schooner Nellie Sherwood freely caught the breeze and she went booming out in fine style. The crew were: Capt. Tyo, Frank Thompson, Fred Williamson and Michel McMahon. The trip was an exceedingly smart one, as at 3:30 o'clock a telegram was received by the owners to the effect that she would be unloaded tonight.

Whats The News? - boiler of Maud will be thoroughly repaired.
