p.8 Death of Mrs. Kelly - wife of Martin Kelly, sub-marine diver.


The schr. Gulnair is at Goderich, stripped for the winter.

The prop. Lake Michigan broke her rudder at Charlotte.

The repairs to the Portsmouth pier will be begun at once.

The schr. British Queen left Portsmouth at noon lumber laden for Oswego.

The prop. Myles left Sarnia last night with a full cargo of general merchandize for Port Arthur. There she will load with grain for Kingston. This will be her last trip.

A busy spot at present is the shipyard of the K. & M. F. Co. The barge Beauport is being rebuilt and the schooner B.W. Folger is receiving extensive repairs.

This week the sailing yacht Gracie will be hauled out at Davis' shipyard and overhauled. She will receive a new keelson and other alterations with a view of increasing her speed.

The barge Ark, ashore at Port Colborne, was in a fair way of being released. Her owners had got her on ways and moved her into nearly floating water, but the gales have put her up on the beach worse than before.

The crew of the schr. Bessie Barwick reached St. Catharines on Saturday evening. Friends met them, possessed with trumpets, fog horns, drums and torches and created a furore. The crew and the friends occupied six cabs, and, with torches blazing, led the procession to their homes, where wives mothers and children awaited them. A dance was given Tuesday to commemorate the event.

Cleared - schr. White Oak and prop. Armenia, Oswego, barley; Singapore, light to Napanee and Bath to load barley for Oswego; prop. Shickluna, Oswego, to load coal for Toronto at $1 per ton; prop. Bruno, Newcastle, to load barley for Charlotte.
