The tug Rambler is on the Marine Railway. She is receiving a new wheel.

Next year the Armenia's route (Deseronto to Ogdensburg) will be taken by the Quinte, a steamer of larger capacity, the Louise taking the place of the Quinte, running between Picton and Trenton.

The steambarge Kincardine, from Owen Sound to Michael's Bay with a $4,000 cargo of mill supplies and merchandise, is under the water near Little Current. She is owned by J.M. Jones, of Detroit, and was valued at $7,000; insured in the Royal Canadian.

The schr. T.R. Merritt, which loaded ore here for Ashtabula, made the trip to Port Dalhousie in 18 hours. The actual sailing time was 16 hours. Two hours were employed in "picking up the land," during which time the vessel was headed due South.

Personal Mention - Ernest McQuaig is the name of the purser of the steamer Picton, drowned at Rondeau, Lake Erie, on Friday.
