The steamyacht Nervani (Nervana?), owned by Mrs. L. Giverneud, West Hoboken, N.J., while on the way to Oswego where Mrs. Giverneud was to meet her husband, was wrecked on the Duck Islands. Mrs. Giverneud and her maid were taken off by a steamer and landed at Charlotte. She was worth $16,000.

A Run Down The River - On Saturday afternoon the str. Hero carried her first excursion down the river this season. There was a fair attendence of pleasure seekers who were well pleased with the trip. At Clayton the Hero was hailed with delight by hundreds who gave hearty cheers for the Canadian steamer. The deputation to meet the boat at Well's Island was small. Between the park and Alexandria Bay hundreds of men are working at island homes, getting them in order for the season. On the way home Joe Tilton, the Hero's chef, served meals that were highly appreciated. He never fails to please his patrons.
