p.2 An Explanation Found - The apples, onions and potatoes picked up on Wolfe Island and Bay of Quinte shores were part of the cargo of the barge Carrie and Cora, which set out while a storm was threatening to go a distance of sixteen miles to Fairhaven. The barge was wrecked off Oswego, the crew being all saved. The owners, J. & M. Turner, were in Picton on Wednesday. Robert Clapp, U.S. Consul, is making arrangements with the Custom authorities for the disposition of the cargo.

p.3 Here & There - The schr. Jessie Scarth was towed into the harbor this afternoon. She was lightened of her cargo and easily pulled off. There is thought to be no damage to her. She will discharge her cargo here.

Two dead horses, a quantity of apples in barrels, and other wreckage has floated ashore at Garden Island.

The Department of Marine & Fisheries has not yet decided whether or not it is advisable to erect a light house at Deseronto. An engineer is investigating and will report on it at an early date.

Consignment of Iron - The propeller Shickluna arrived down with cargo last night, bound to Montreal. She wanted to lighten, but no firm would take a small consignment at this late season. Therefore she transferred her whole cargo to barges at Portsmouth. Other consignments are yet expected there.

p.4 Trent District - Murray Canal - some details of work.
