p.2 The Oswego Belle - The Oswego Belle will leave Swift's dock tomorrow at seven o'clock instead of six, direct for Clayton, Alexandria Bay, and Brockville. She will return from Brockville at 4 p.m., and leave for Oswego at 10 o'clock. This is a fine trip and should be largely patronized.

The schr. Ontario of Montreal arrived here today leaking badly, when about ten miles off Erie the roughness of the weather worked oakum out of the centre board box, causing her to leak so bad that the Captain was afraid he would not reach here. She is loaded with block stone for Montreal.

p.3 Owen Sound, July 28th - The Government dredge Challenger arrived on Wednesday along with three scows and a small tug. It is expected she will first repair the breech in the dam of the dry dock, after which she will proceed to clean out the present channel from the outer lighthouse to a depth of ten feet, and to make a turning basin near the railway.
