Richelieu & Ontario Company - a Syndicate has offered to lease Upper Canada steamers with right of purchase; Messrs. Senecal, Murray and Hudon were appointed a Committee to report on the best means of dealing with the Upper Canada boats. [Star]

The Wrecking Company - The captains for the tugs F.A. Folger and H.M. Mixer have not yet been appointed. The tugs will do harbour towing as cheaply as ever. The wrecking steamer will be commanded by Capt. Thos. Donnelly. In all probability a fine steamer, strong, swift and powerful, will be built here, and especially designed for lake service.

Capt. J. Donnelly, who has just returned from Quebec, reports that the steamer Conqueror, of Quebec, owned by Mr. J.G. Ross, M.P.P., has been chartered and will be used for wrecking and rafting on this lake. She is a powerful craft, side-wheeled and double engined. Capt. T. Donnelly will be commander, and will bring the boat here as soon as navigation opens. The contracts have been let for four pontoons, to cost $30,000. They will be built at Quebec. The steamer Conqueror will do wrecking on Lake Erie also.
