The ferry boats are running regularly and are a great convenience to the islanders.

The tug Traveller arrived at Garden Island last night with the first raft of the season, from near Gananoque.

The schr. White Oak went over to Garden Island this morning, where we understand she will take off a part of the Liberia's cargo of ice.

At Port Colborne during the coming season the tugs Kitty Haight, Mocking Bird, and Armstrong will run in opposition to the combination.

It is reported that there will be no combination of the tug interests at Buffalo the coming season. If true, there will be a lively scramble for business.

Parry Harbour, March 20th - Navigation is open. The steamer Sanford Davis with a full cargo of freight and passengers, arrived from Collingwood for Byng Inlet.

Opening of Navigation - The tug Samson Davis left Collingwood at ten o'clock on Monday morning for Byng Inlet with the crew of the Maganetawan, fitting out at that port. The Georgian Bay is quite free from ice. Weather fine, wind north-west.

The lumber vessel owners of Chicago held a meeting on Wednesday afternoon and passed a resolution agreeing to employ crews by the month and to reduce the expenses of loading and discharging cargoes. A committee was appointed to ask the Lumber Exchange for demurrage for each day's delay of a vessel at the lumber docks, with which to pay her crew. The demurrage to be asked for would be: For vessels of 150,000 feet and under $8 for twenty-four hours; of 250,000 feet, $10 for twenty-four hours; of 350,000 feet, $12 for forty-eight hours, of 500,000 and over, $14 for seventy-two hours.
