p.2 Marine News

Vessels are laying up in quick succession, and the harbour movements as far as concerns the shipping are of little interest to report.

The schooner E. Blake is loading ore for Cleveland.

The schr. Jennie & Annie lies near Ellsworth's Pier, between Empire Bluff and Sleeping Bear. The captain, woman cook, and five seamen - seven in all - were drowned. The vessel and cargo are a total loss. The brig Lafayette Cook, which stranded at Port Stanley, has been got off and towed to Port Dalhousie for repairs.

The brig Sea Gull has reached Port Colborne in a disabled condition.

Very few accidents have occurred this season in comparison with the disasters of last year.
