p.2 Marine Notes
There is very little doing in the harbour, the arrivals being very small.
Montreal Transportation Co. - Arrived - schr. Laura, Milwaukee, with 19,750 bush. wheat; the tug Glide, with barges Glengarry, Lancaster, McCarthy, Detroit, Ark and Minnie, and schr. Ariel.
J. Swift's Wharf - Arrived - props. Prussia from Toronto; Scotia from Milwaukee; Kincardine from Oswego.
Holcomb & Stewart - Arrived - prop. Scotia from Chicago, lightened 4,751 bush. wheat; prop. City of Montreal, from Chatham, lightened 6,000 bush. wheat; and both proceeded to Montreal.
The schr. Laura went ashore on Point Frederick Shoal yesterday afternoon, in coming into harbour. The captain attributes the mishap to his vessel not answering her helm. An elevator and barge were sent out to lighten her, but they were not required, as the Glide got the schooner off this morning.
There is a strong breeze blowing down the lake this morning, which ought to bring down any vessels which have passed through the canal.

Howard, Toronto, Erie, barley; steambarge Glasgow, Ogdensburg, Detroit, stone; schrs. America, Charlotte, Racine, coal; Belle Mitchell, Oswego, Milwaukee, coal; Dorr, Oswego, Toledo, coal; Phelps, Oswego, Toledo, coal.

In Harbour wind bound - steam barge Glasgow, schrs. America, Hattie Howard, S. Neelon, Lilly Hamilton, Dora, Belle Mitchell, Phelps.
Fast Trip - The schr. Richardson left port for Oswego at 8:30 on Monday night, unloaded a cargo of grain, and returned to Kington, arriving here at 4 p.m. yesterday, making the round trip in nineteen and a half hours. This is the quickest trip made from this harbour.
p.3 Port Colborne, Oct. 27th - The Erie Belle, loaded with wheat from Kincardine for Kingston, went ashore this morning behind the west pier. The tow-line on the tug parted once or twice, and then the tug got disabled. The wind was blowing a gale from the west and a heavy sea was on at the time. It is thought the vessel will be got off by lighting without damage as soon as the sea goes down. The vessel is leaking a little.
