Full Text



The steambarge Saxon was hauled out at Portsmouth today, and will receive a new wheel.

The schr. Gearing (Capt. Dewitt, of South Bay) is discharging wood at Garden Island. This is her forty-third cargo. Since navigation opened she has cleared $1,100.

On Friday the steamer McArthur, with Capt. Macdonald, Parsons, Larush and Dandy, went to the rescue of the schr. Blanche, ashore at Presque Isle with 6,200 bushels of barley, owned by Richardson & Sons. The Blanche was released and the tug started for Oswego with her. On going a short distance it was considered that the wind was too strong to proceed and the boat ran back to port. On Saturday the vessels again started and arrived in Oswego on Sunday. The schooner reached here yesterday and is now lying in the slip at the foot of Princess street. The injuries she received while ashore are light. Her bowsprit is gone. The cargo when discharged was found perfectly dry.

p.8 Incidents Of The Day - The schooner Mowat is the only vessel afloat on Lake Ontario. She left Oswego this morning for Kingston with coal.
