p.2 Our Canal System - editorial.


The schr. B.W. Folger has been chartered to take barley from Tyendinaga to Oswego at 3 1/2 or 4 cents.

Sailing schooners around a coal store is now the occupation of vessel captains. The stories told are very interesting.

Capt. Saxie Brooks of the schr. Benson has been relieved of his position. He was blackballed last Spring by the Union, and at Port Colborne, when the vessel was required, no sailors would ship until the Captain was replaced.

p.3 Royal Mail Line - After paying the dividend, which amounts to $48,000, the Royal Mail Line will have a balance of some $30,000 to carry forward, in the shape of cash, coal and stores. It is the intention of the Directors to expend a portion of the balance in converting the Upper Canada line into coal instead of wood burners, by which means a large saving in fuel expenditure will be made.
