Full Text



Messrs. Gray, of the Royal Canadian yacht club, Toronto, have purchased a pretty boat from a member of the New York club. She is a thirty foot cutter of the Burgess design.

The schr. Annandale, Capt. Rooney, was on Lake Ontario from Sunday until Wednesday night in crossing from Cobourg to Oswego. The winds were light and varied and the fog so thick that it was impossible to see the lights. He tried to make Charlotte but failing to gain that port put to sea again. The captain estimates that he sailed over 600 miles during his outing. The Annandale had a cargo of 12,700 bushels of grain.

General Paragraphs - The schr. Singapore, reported to have been lost on her voyage from Charlotte, arrived this morning. She had a cargo of coal for Swift & Co.

The barge Gaskin was successfully raised and towed to shore this afternoon. Hurrah for Captain Leslie !
