p.1 Barley Shipments

The following are the shipments of Napanee dealers for the week ending Thursday:

Diamond & Sherwood - W.W. Grant, 10,000 bushels; Ocean Wave, 5,600; Dominion, 4,500; Fabiola, 10,000; Ariel, 12,000; Kate Eccles (from Hay Bay) 9,000.

Downey & Co.'s shipments for the past week have been: per David Andrews, 10,500 bushels; Nellie P. Downey, 7,000; Fisher, 8,500; Andrews, 10,000; Nellie P., 6,800.

Grange Co-operative Company in the time above mentioned, have shipped, per Collier, 11,000 bushels; Olivia, 7,500; Collier, 12,000; all No. 1, and per Olivia a part cargo of 4,000 bushels.

Grange Grain Association, two cargoes per W.W. Grant, one of 10,140, and the other of 10,000.

The anticipation that barley this year would be a light crop, in quality or quantity, or either for that matter, seems to have been unfounded. The proportion of bright barley is very large and its weight well up to the standard. Diamond & Sherwood state that all their last shipments turned out to be 49 1/2 pounds to the imperial bushel, and that the quality was prime. {Beaver]

p.2 Toronto, Oct. 1st - The old reliable pleasure steamer Watertown was put up at auction this morning, but was withdrawn, no bids having been made.

p.3 Belleville Fall Regatta - The Belleville Fall Regatta was held yesterday at Massassaga Point, and was quite successful. There was just wind enough to make the affair lively, the water being smooth. In the second-class race there were five entries, the Emma of Kingston, owned by Mr. Offord, being one of them. She was only able to take fourth place. The Katie Gray was the winner. In the third class race, Mr. H. Cunningham's Mystery was entered from Kingston, and after an exciting race was the winner by 1 minute and 32 seconds. The race was well contested all through, there being five entries.

Schooner Sunk - The schooner Canadian, loaded with granite from Gananoque, is sunk off Halliday's Point, Wolfe Island. She left Gananoque on Sunday evening and shortly after sprung a leak and was beached. She will probably be unloaded and towed to Kingston.
