p.2 Marine Notes
The prop. Canada on her trip down to Montreal had to turn back from Beauharnois Canal, which she could not pass through on account of the ice. She left her through freight at Prescott, to be forwarded to Montreal, and arrived at Swift's dock this morning. She is now lying here wind bound. When the weather moderates she will proceed to Oswego, thence to Hamilton to lay up.
The prop. Persia arrived up this morning from Montreal, and also lies in the harbour wind bound. She proceeds to St. Catharines to lay up for the winter.
The prop. East also arrived up this morning, having taken a barge in tow from Gananoque with a boiler on board for the new steamer now building at Millpoint.
The mail steamers Spartan, Corinthian and Passport have been taken to Lachine where they are to be laid up for the season.
The schr. New Dominion arrived at the St. Lawrence and Chicago Forwarding Co.'s Dock yesterday with 12,500 bush. wheat from Kincardine. The wheat will be transhipped into a barge and will remain here all winter. The schooner had a narrow escape in the gale of Wednesday while coming down the lake. A huge wave washed over her, completely filling her deck up to the rail. She recovered, however, and arrived down without any damage to vessel or cargo.
