p.3 Suspending Collections - The United States Consul has been notified that the collection of tonnage duty of 3 cents per ton has been suspended on all vessels arriving at any port in the United States from any port in the Dominion of Canada. This action has been brought about by the withdrawal of tonnage dues from American vessels at Canadian ports. The movement is therefore reciprocal.

Incidents Of the Day - Part of the new dock, which is being built for Rathbun & Co., at the Grove Inn, will be sunk by Saturday night next.

Block & Co., of Brockville, are building steam yacht boilers for John Ryan, Brockville; Capt. Davis, Gananoque; and Capt. Davis, Kingston.
