p.2 The Steamers - The steamer Huron came up from Prescott today; the propeller Bristol came in this afternoon from Cape Vincent, to lay up; and the Pierrepont went down to Gananoque.

The Lighted Clock Tower - We find that we were in error in stating in yesterday's News that the lighted Clock Tower had not been originally intended as a beacon light. The authority to purchase the clock and glass dials, it may be remembered, was in response to a communication addressed to the Council of the Corporation by ex-Mayor Creighton, strongly recommending glass dials, by means of which the Clock Tower would serve the purpose of a light house, long needed in the harbor.

Imports - 14,15.
