p.2 The Propeller Argyle - On Friday afternoon the requisite pumps and other apparatus and a grain barge left here per tug Lady Franklin to assist in the clearance of the propeller Argyle, grounded below Gananoque near Grenadier Island. Captain Fortier of Toronto has the management of the work. This morning a telegram was received from Brockville to the effect that four thousand bushels (dry) of her cargo were transhipped to the barges; that the propeller was successfully floated, but beached again, for what reason it is not stated. The cargo, we learn, is insured in American companies for $20,000. There is some prospect of the leak in the hull of the Argyle being so stopped as to permit of her return this evening to Kingston for repairs.

p.3 Regatta - no one is arranging for one - why?
