p.3 A New Steam Pump - Yesterday afternoon a trial was made of the new steam pump recently obtained by Calvin & Son, of Garden Island, from Seneca Falls. It is a twelve inch rotary pump. The boiler and engine, by which it is manipulated, were built on the Island from the choicest material. The trial was a perfect success and the firm have now a pump second to none in the Dominion and at a cost of $3,000. The boiler has an inspirator, the first used in connection with a steam pump so that should the rubber couplings blow out there will be no failure in the operation of machinery. The Garden Island firm is now prepared to do any kind of wrecking.

Vessel Aground - The schooner Prince Alfred, ore laden for Fairhaven, in starting from the K. & P.R.R. dock, ran ashore on the shoal near the tower and remained there for a considerable time. The str. Pierrepont pulled her off.

Here & There - The schr. Enterprise went ashore on West Point, near Picton. She had been loading barley at West Point storehouse, and when about half loaded attempted to leave for shelter. The cargo is a total loss, and the vessel will probably prove the same. All hands saved.
