Full Text

p.3 Here & There - The steamer Puritan, or "Susan Push," has been laid up at Gananoque.

Asking For An Appropriation - $5,000 wanted to dredge Napanee River.

Steamer Conqueror Raised - Capt. Donnelly has succeeded in raising the steamer Conqueror, which, in tow of the steamer Hastings, reached Garden Island today. She will in all probability be repaired in the city. The Captain has profited largely by his last contract in the interest of the Wrecking Company.

Denounces A Minister's Conduct - Capt. Joseph Pierson, of Consecon, was in the city on Thursday. He was on his way to Ottawa, where he intended to urge the erection of a lighthouse at the entrance to Weller's Bay. The Globe says that though Mr. Pierson is a strong Conservative, he does not hesitate to denounce the conduct of the Government in selecting the Presqu'ile route for the Murray Canal in preference to the route recommended by Mr. Page. Money spent in building the canal by the route adopted will, he says, be completely thrown away, as the Weller's Bay route will have to be adopted in the end. Mr. Mackenzie Bowell can never, in Mr. Pierson's opinion, retrieve the blunder he committed in making the Murray Canal a political job, in opposition to all Lake Ontario shipping interests.
