p.2 Storm Signal - At 9:55 a.m. the local observer was notified by the head officer at Toronto to hoist the storm signal drum, in anticipation of a blow. The warning appears to have been timely. This is the 6th time since April 1st that the drum has been hoisted and every time the warning has been correct.

Accident To the Annie Falconer - The schooner Annie Falconer struck a rock on her way down the canal on Friday night, and sank about four miles from here. She was being towed by the tug Jane Armstrong, which will probably be amendable for the damages. She lies on the heel-path side and does not obstruct navigation.

Yachting - A fine new yacht, the Ariadne, owned by Mr. Fred Whitley, has arrived at Lachine after a pleasant sail from Kingston, where she was built by H. Cunningham. The Ariadne is a very handsome clinkerbuilt craft, all cedar, and copper fastened. She carries a large spread of canvass, and from her fine lines promises great speed. On her way down she proved herself a staunch seaboat, in Lake St. Francis, where she encountered rough weather and a heavy sea - and also in running the Gallop and Lepleau rapids.

Edwardsburg, 15th - The barge owned by Messrs. McPhie & Co., of Kingston, while in tow of the tug Chieftain, struck a stone between Iroquois and Edwardsburg on the St. Lawrence Canal. Every effort was made with the pumps to keep her from sinking. The crew kept her afloat till about 300 yards above lock no. 26, and then she sank. She is loaded with coal for Brockville. The position she now lies in will not interfere with navigation.
