p.3 We'll Soon Have Ice - channel has taken between Wolfe Island and Garden Island, but steamer runs to within half a mile of Wolfe Island.

Couldn't Reach The Cape - This morning the str. Maud started for Cape Vincent, and among her passengers were several who wanted to see Mowat, the runaway contractor. The Maud got as far as Four Mile Point. There a heavy sea was encountered. The waves dashed over the craft, heavily coating her with ice. The creditors began to look pale. Finally they "threw up their accounts" and anxiously contemplated the return of the boat to port, which occurred at 9:30 o'clock.

Here & There - Capt. Collier is here to superintend the building of a steamer at Davis' shipyard.

The str. Maud has gone into winter quarters. She has had a very profitable season.

The Cost of Towing - William Askin, of the C.P.R., Toronto, is in the city for the purpose of settling with the owners of the tugs which took the three iron steamships from Montreal to Port Dalhousie. The tugs received a certain amount per hour and the total, we believe, will be between $30,000 and $40,000. Two of the vessels are now at Port Colborne, where they will receive cabins and upper works. Mr. John Marshall, late of the schr. Grantham, has the superintendency of the work upon the vessels at the port.
