The schr. Fanny Gordanier (sic Gardiner ?), capacity 30,000 bushels, which ran aground near Snake Island last week, en route to Garden Island, is leaking. Her captain would have had her hauled out here and repaired but there was no dock to accommodate her.

This morning the propeller Glengarry, with schrs. Gaskin and Glenora in tow, cleared for Charlotte, there to load coal for Prince Arthur. Previous to her departure the crews of the vessels struck for $1 per day. They had been getting $25 per month. Men were hired in place of the strikers and given the wages which they asked for.

The steamer Prince Arthur left Gananoque last week and went to Sorel, P.Q., where she will be fitted up for service on the river St. Lawrence, between Kingston and Montreal, by the Richelieu & Ontario Navigation Co. Capt. M. Bailey, who was master of the steamer Spartan, will command her. She will leave Kingston for Montreal every Monday morning.
