p.2 A Trip Up the Bay - on str. Bay of Quinte. (+ ad on page 3)

Propeller St. Lawrence - The propeller St. Lawrence has been drawn out on the Marine Railway for repairs. It has been found that in addition to the damage done to her stem, a plank in her bottom had been driven partially in, so that the pumps had two leaks to contend with, instead of one as was supposed. She will be off the ways about Tuesday.

Police Court - William Mervin was charged by Mr. C.F. Gildersleeve with having left his employment as engineer of the steam scow Hemlock, without first giving the notice required by law. The case having been heard a fine of ten dollars was imposed, or 14 days in gaol in default of payment.

Circular To Collectors of Customs

The following circular, addressed to Collectors of Customs, has been issued.

Treasury Department, July 8th, 1867

With a view to secure uniformity in the manner of receiving and certifying manifests of vessels arriving at American ports, Collectors of Customs will observe the following instructions:

Vessels coming from any port or place in Canada must report at the first place of arrival in the United States, presenting to the Collector or other legally authorized officer of the Customs a manifest of the cargo on board, from what port or place shipped, and what port or place in the United States destined, and specifying that there is no other merchandize on board than such as has been described, to which manifest and specification the said master must make oath before the Collector of Customs. If any portion of the merchandize on the manifest is destined to be landed at the first port of arrival, the Collector of such port will see that proper entry of it is made, and will make the certificate of such landing on the vessel's manifest, and permit the vessel to proceed upon her voyage to the next port at which her manifest shows she has merchandise to land. Merchandise described on the manifest as destined for other than the first port of entry, may, if desired by the owners thereof, be landed and entry made at any such port and the manifest must in such cases be corrected and certified to by the Collector or other principal officer of the customs at that port. H. McCulloch, Secretary of Treasury.
