In the boat was a man who gave his name as Garrison Terry. He reports that he left Wellington on Sunday, for Kingston, having on board five half barrels of salt fish one of which he had opened and attempted to eat. He had partaken of no food for three days and when found was so exhausted that he could not bring his boat alongside. He was taken on board and kindly cared for.Yesterday he was landed at Cape Vincent, and having repaired his sails, left again for Kingston. The Capt. reports that the man was affected with St. Vitus Dance. [Brockville Recorder]

Good Wages - Tug captains at Chicago get $100 a month, and there are rumours that the captains are going to ask for $125. The owners say they cannot afford it, and if a strike should take place - well, they can afford that too.
