- Full Text
The sloop Lorraine is unloading old iron at Folger's wharf.
The tug H.A. Calvin started with another large raft yesterday for Quebec. The raft had four sails.
The tug Col. By arrived this morning from Ottawa with three barges laden with ties for Cape Vincent.
The barge Murray, Capt. Flynn, is sunk below the M.T. Co.'s wharf. Yesterday while coming across the gap a strong breeze was blowing and as she was heavily laden she became strained and commenced leaking. She arrived in the harbour all right though she had two feet of water in her. When she got at the wharf she sank. She was loaded with block wood.
