Full Text



Capt. Beaupre left this afternoon for Clayton to settle up the summer business of the Thousand Island steamboat company.

The steamers St. Lawrence and Maynard were taken below the old K. & P. bridge on Saturday where they will lay up for the winter.

The steamer Dominion, from Toledo to Montreal with grain, went ashore yesterday on Grenadier Island. The tug Bronson and a barge went to her assistance this morning.

The wrecking schooner Robert Gaskin, sunk beside the str. Armstrong, was raised on Saturday till her topmast was above the water, when the hose for conveying air from the compressor to the lifting pontoon burst. Two tugs attempted to tow her into shallow water, but before they made much headway she again settled down.
