p.2 A Vessel Burned - Last night the schooner M. O'Gorman, lying in Cataraqui Bay, was apparently set on fire and burned to the water's edge. The smoke from the burning hull still ascends. The craft, valued at $1,000, was commanded by Captain George Malone, and ran between Ontario lake ports. One man asserts that the fire was caused by friction, the result of rapid running accomplished last season. The vessel is supposed to have belonged to Captains Radford and Malone.

p.3 Sale Of A Steamer - The steamer Spartan is advertised for sale, and Mr. Milloy, of the Richelieu Navigation Company, has gone to Detroit to look after the interests of the Company. It appears more than likely that a lawsuit will result in connection with the affair, as the Insurance Company, it is understood, refuse to pay more than $25,000, whilst the Richelieu Company desire to abandon the vessel and claim $40,000.
