p.2 The Propeller Ranger is still undergoing repairs at the Marine Railway, and it is likely that she will be on fully another week, as they are giving her a thorough overhaul.

-The steamers have well nigh all retired for the season, the field being almost entirely left to the propellers, an occasional one of which touches at this port. Three of the Lake and River line, the Magnet, Champion and Grecian, are still running on what was intended to be their last trip but the present favorable weather may tempt them to make an extra trip or two should no sudden change take place tending to prevent them. The steamers of the American Line are all laid up, changing the travel to the direction of Cape Vincent, giving the Watertown additional work to do in both freight and passage departments. The only steamers of the Lake and River Line which it is intended to lay up in Montreal this year are the Champion and Kingston, the other four being laid up here.

-A large number of vessels have gone into winter quarters, and navigation for the season is almost over. The Welland Canal is not yet frozen, but if the present severe weather continues it will soon be obstructed with ice. Vessels have been dismantled at Port Colborne, St. Catherines, and other ports on the Canal. [Hamilton Spectator]
