On Friday the balance of the insurance on the Richelieu & Ontario Navigation Company's steamers was taken up in New York. All the steamers are now fully insured for the year.

Three drams of timber are being rafted in Belleville for Mr. Buck. They will contain about 40,000 feet, and will be ready for shipment on Saturday. They will be brought to Kingston. Another dram will be rafted in Trenton this week also for Mr. Buck.

A special meeting of the Directors of the Richelieu & Ontario Navigation Company was held yesterday in connection with the sinking of the steamer Spartan in the Georgian Bay. It appears that in the event of the vessel being a complete wreck that the chartering company, the Toronto, Grey and Bruce Railway, are by their agreement liable for the full value of the steamer which is placed at $50,000.

p.3 The Shoals - The weather during June has not been the best for operations on the shoals. A great deal of time has been lost. The pieces of rock taken up are about a foot in thickness. They are used for filling the wharves of the M.T. Company and Locomotive & Engine Company. Four divers are employed. Blasting will hardly be done this year.
