Full Text



Arrivals: schr. Annie Falconer, Toronto, 12,500 bushels wheat; steamer Celtic, Duluth, 17,300 bush. wheat.

The schr. Sylvester Neelon, coal-laden, from Ashtabula for Brockville, is ashore on Mohawk Island, about twenty miles from Port Colborne. Capt. Milligan of Kingston is in command.

The boats of the Richelieu & Ontario navigation company have stopped running and the men are being paid off. The Algerian was brought from Cantin's dry dock, Montreal, on Wednesday, and loaded with goods. She proceeded about five hundred yards, when the captain saw it would be useless to continue, because of the dense smoke, and came back to the wharf, her goods being transhipped to the Grand Trunk cars. She will tow the Corinthian down to Sorel when it clears. The Magnet, Corsican, Alexandria and Bohemian are detained at Cedar Rapids.
