Full Text



The burned life saving station at Salmon Point, Lake Ontario, is to be rebuilt.

The officers elect of the Ontario & St. Lawrence Steamboat Company are: C.L. Stowell, Rochester, President; Charles A.L. Fisher, Montreal, Vice-President; Frank L. Stowell, New York, Secretary.

The Canadian propellers, which are running between Chicago and Montreal, are now carrying a large number of passengers. None of the American propellers plying between Chicago and Ogdensburg are fitted up for the passenger traffic; hence it is monopolized by Canadian vessels.

Arrivals - prop. Canada, Toledo, 6,750 bush. corn; schr. Nassau, Chicago, 21,256 bush. wheat.

Cleared - barge Manitoba, Ogdensburg, 91,534 feet lumber; schr. Vienna, Sodus Point, light; schr. Annie M. Foster, Oswego, 68,000 feet lumber; schr. Philo Bennett, Oswego, 119,000 feet lumber.
