p.1 Picton Items - The steamers Picton, Empress of India and Alexandria are laid up at Picton. The Shannon is still running to Napanee, and receives a fair share of the trade. The Armenia and Hastings have a keen competition for the trade between Kingston and Picton, which is to be regretted, as there is not more than enough for one boat.

p.3 Marine Notes

Marine matters in Kingston are, and have been for some time, uncommonly dull. The wrecking men are in despair, as they think there is no prospect of a job this fall.

The Chicago Times says that the present season has been the most disastrous ever known by the Chicago tug owners. Deluded by false statements, several tugs from other ports went to Chicago, and that, with the bickering amongst the owners, and poor business, has brought about the present state of affairs. Some of the tugs are leaving for other waters.
