p.2 Pride of America Sold - The sale of the schooner Pride of America, which was seized by the Sheriff of Oswego on May 10th, for a tow bill, was sold yesterday for $2,500 to Egbert A. Smith, of Cheboygan, Mich. Mr. Smith had the claim against her. Capt. McDonald, whose savings of a life time were in the vessel, loses everything. He took the matter greatly to heart.


The yacht Atalanta is on her way back to Belleville, having given a good account of herself at Chicago.

The tug Glide arrived yesterday with five barges from Montreal, and at once cleared with six barges carrying 100,000 bushels of grain.

The grain vessels are being discharged very rapidly and the cargoes are turning out well. Few so far have had shortages; in most cases, indeed, there have been overpluses.

A scow load of wet grain, from the barge Montreal, has been sent to S. Going, Wolfe Island. Considerable grain has been sold on the wharf, and the balance goes to McMillan's kiln to be dried.

The schrs. Mystic Star and William Home have cleared for Oswego, there to load coal for Chicago. Coal rates have advanced and the disposition is not to charter until the vessels are in port.

p.3 The Yacht Race - list of entrants at Belleville.

Here & There - Kingston & Montreal Forwarding Co. to unload schr. Jennie Matthews and she will leave here "wild."

Personal Mention - Renwick Williams was waiter of str. Rothesay, drowned at Clayton.
