Arrangements are being made for Capt. Donnelly to go down the river and raise the Lily Parsons, sunk last week off Brockville.
The tug Elswood broke her shaft down the river, and the Lady Franklin went down and towed her up.
The Toledo Blade says: "During the week ending Saturday last there were 144,581 bush. of wheat and 363,164 bush. of other grain sent east by Lake, the destinations being Oswego, Buffalo, Ogdensburg, Kingston, Cleveland and Montreal.

Vessel owners think that the busy time will continue now during the rest of the season."
