p.2 Strange Fatalities - There is a connection between the loss of the Manitoulin and Asia. McDougall (purser,) Carter (steward,) Bennett (waiter,) Walters (ladies' maid,) escaped death by fire only to find a watery grave. Thomas Hanbury and wife, who were lost on the Manitoulin, have been joined by a sister of each from the Asia. Johiel Tinkiss, who nearly lost his own life on the former, has lost a brother by the latter. Robert Henry was lost on the former, and now the only remaining brother, who was on his last business visit to Manitoulin Island, is gone too.

p.3 An Award Made - for yachts Garfield and Hebe.

Whats The News? - Napanee is now a port for registration of vessels.


The schr. Gazelle arrived last night from Deseronto with 10,000 feet of lumber.

The schr. Ella Murton, with coal from Cleveland to Napanee, is hard aground at the latter place. She is to being lightened.

The steam barge Nile and her consort, the Bedford, have arrived from Ottawa with lumber and ties. She has gone through to Deseronto.

The schooner Delaware got 2 cents on barley from Napanee to Oswego. The British Queen and Kate are loading at Napanee at the same rate.

The schr. Denmark, of Garden Island, has been fitted out and left for Wellington, where she will load the timber of the McDougal raft, recently broken up.

The steamer Alexandra will winter at Montreal, where she will be rebuilt. The Empress of India is loading plank at Picton for Montreal, for use upon the Alexandra.

The Captain of the schr. Prussia lying at Brockville, will unload 200 tons of coal, retaining the balance in the vessel until his charges for demurrage are paid. He wants $40 per day.

The schr. B.W. Folger takes barley from Gananoque to Oswego, and will bring back coal. The rate of freight is very low; in fact Capt. Dandy says he carries the grain for the fun of the thing.

Capt. Dolf Courson has arrived to take charge of the schr. Eureka, which has come into possession of the Folger Bros. Capt. Donnelly brought her down from Owen Sound a few days ago. She is loading iron ore for Fairhaven.
