British Whig (Kingston, ON), Dec. 1, 1887

Full Text



The prop. Dominion and consort Augusta have cleared for the Welland canal, light.

The grain in the schr. Julia, ashore near Oswego, was owned by Richardson, and insured in the Royal Canadian company.

Owing to the shallowness of the water the steambarge Saxon, while in one of the canals in the east, broke her wheel a few days ago.

The schooner Jessie Breck is at Davis' shipyard undergoing repairs. About $2,000 will be expended in removing many posts. The hull of the boat, exposed, is as firm as when she was built.

The steamer John A. Macdonald, which ran on a shoal near Duffy's Light, on Tuesday, was released yesterday. She will be hauled out for repairs. Two of her frames have been broken.

The schr. Hannah Butler, Capt. O'Hagen, ashore near Salmon Point, is a total loss. Her sides have spread, and the grain in her, 8,000 bushels, has leaked away. It was worth $5,500, and insured in the Western.
