Full Text

p.1 Incidents of the Day - The men employed at the dry dock were called out yesterday morning to fix the dam. The waves were heavy and the continual washing on it nearly caused it to give way. Stone and earth were carted to the dam which saved the dock from being flooded. The work of lightening the schr. Vickery, sunk in the St. Lawrence, has been abandoned until after the holidays.

During the gale yesterday the schr. Julia broke away from her moorings but was got back to the wharf before being injured.

The pontoon which broke loose in the attempt to raise the Armstrong Wednesday was towed to the new pier at Brockville and raised. It will be some time yet before the other three attached to the wreck will be raised.
