p.2 ad - Change of Time - R. & O. Nav. Co. steamers to leave 1/2 hour earlier.



The tug Morey has been chartered by Hall & Co. of Ogdensburg to take the place of the Gardner.

The schr. Flora is discharging 160 tons of coal at the foot of Queen Street for the Gas Company.

Kelly & Burwash have purchased the steamer F.B. Maxwell to replace the Manitoba on the line between Carillon and Montreal.

Travel on the river is said to be improving. The str. Belle, running between Cape Vincent and Clayton, is now crowded at every trip.

The schr. Annie Falconer has arrived at the M.T. Co.'s dock with 12,201 bush. wheat. Her bill of lading does not indicate that there has been any cutting of rates as a Western paper stated.

The steamer Corsican was pretty roughly knocked about on her passage up Lake Ontario on her last week's trip, and on her return to Montreal she had to be put into dry dock, where she is undergoing repairs.

The tug Active left last evening, having in tow three barges. Two of them were laden with matchwood from Ottawa for Frankford, freight $5 per cord. The other barge carried leached ashes, from Kingston to New York, on the owner's account.

This morning the steamer Puritan passed down the river. She is the old Louise, of Ottawa, rebuilt by the Rathbuns for the ferry between Gananoque and Clayton. In model she is very much like the str. City of Kingston, and about as fast. Her wheels are very much to the stern.
