ad - Dominion Day - Excursion to Alexandria Bay - The Splendid Steamer Rochester will make an excursion to the Thousand Island House and other splendid hotels at Alexandria Bay. The steamer will go down by the Canadian and return by the American Channel, thus giving a rare chance of viewing the magnificent scenery of the Thousand Islands. State Rooms may be secured. Gents tickets 50 cents. Ladies tickets 25 cents.

p.3 Port Colborne, 25th - One of the quickest trips on record has just been made by the propeller Scotia, Capt. Scott. Leaving Port Colborne, he ran to Chicago, discharged his load of merchandize at two different places, reloaded, and returned to the canal in the remarkably short time of eight days and seventeen hours.

Steamer Celtic - This new and elegant Canadian steamer, of the Merchants' and Lake and River Steamship Line, running between Toronto, Hamilton and Montreal, arrived here this morning, being her second trip to this port. She was built at Hamilton, and is owned by A.E.D. McKay, of that city. In her construction all of the modern improvements have been introduced, and her accommodations for the travelling public are all that could be desired. Her cabins, which are beautifully furnished, are heated with steam, and the bath rooms are supplied with cold and hot water. The state rooms are of good size, well furnished, and each have two cork life-preservers. The Celtic is in command of Capt. Taylor, and is now loading with merchandize at the Northern Transportation Co.'s warehouse for Toronto and Hamilton.

The Outlook - A number of vessels, grain carriers of all sizes, are lying idle at our docks, unable to obtain cargoes at remunerative rates, and in the opinion of several of our leading vessel men some of them will be compelled to remain idle until the new crop begins to move. The outlook for owners of vessel property becomes rapidly worse, and there is now scarcely a hope of realizing anything upon property of this description the present season. [Milwaukee Wisconsin]
