Garden Island, July 29th - The pilots and men in the habit of running timber and stave drams over the Lachine Rapids have today unanimously refused to run any more oak drams until the balance of the wreck of the Renaud is removed, giving as a reason that they are afraid of striking the wreck, which would cause the drams to sink, and in consequence, most of the men would lose their lives. Up to the present time, the water has been high enough to run the rafts through the channel southward of the Renaud; but the water having fallen, they are now debarred from using this outlet. Unless the balance of the wreck is removed at once it will prove a great loss to lumber-men. Already two large rafts are detained at the head of the rapids.
