Yesterday Capt. Donnelly succeeded, with the assistance of the steamers H. Calvin and McArthur, in pulling off the schr. Nellie Theresa, ashore at Sandy Creek. A channel 9 feet was dug from the vessel to deep water. The vessel was uninjured. She was towed to Deseronto, where she now lies.

Died - In Kingston, on April 28th, Joseph Geroux, mate of the str. Passport.

p.3 St. Lawrence Steamboat Company - The stock of this Company has been increased by $100,000. A large new steamer has been purchased and arrangements made with all the leading railway companies, excepting the G.T.R., who run in connection with the Richelieu Company for through connections. Efforts are also being made to get the St. Lawrence Tug Boat Company to run their boats to Montreal, thus making a direct through route for American traffic from Niagara to all the summer resorts on the lower St. Lawrence. Mr. Garrison, of New York, has been elected President of the Company, and Mr. R.G. Lunt, General Manager. The route will be the same as last summer, the boats only touching at one point on the North Shore.

Murray Canal Grant - coming election might influence it.

An Old Employee's Death - Joseph Geroux; ship flags at half-mast.
