p.2 Grain Afloat - By reference to our canal report (which we receive by telegraph every morning) it will be seen that thirteen vessels passed through the canal yesterday for Kingston. Of this number ten are loaded with grain and three with timber and staves. Notwithstanding the chronic cry of hard times, it is anticipated that an increase will take place in the shipping business this fall.
The Boats - The Ferry and Cape boats will run as usual tomorrow, with the exception of the two o'clock trip to the Island which will be cancelled. The Maud and Pierrepont will take over the pic-nicers to Channel Grove in the morning; after which, the Pierrepont will do duty. The Maud will proceed down the river in the afternoon, and the Geneva will take the Cape route.
Ashore - The yacht Annette from Charlotte ran ashore on Friday night last near McCorkell's boat building yard. She stove two holes in her bottom, and her crew of seven was rescued with some trouble. She was made all right again and sailed off yesterday.
Aground - The Kincardine ran aground in the Napanee River on her last trip down. After an hours delay she was got off. Another grant for dredging would be in order.
