p.3 A Nuisance - Can the Harbour Master, the Corporation, the Mayor, or any other man do anything to put a stop to the hideous whistling or screaming of the steamer that was practising last night or this morning? The boat should be indicted as a public nuisance.

Launch - We understand that the new schooner Singapore will be launched at the ship-yard tomorrow at 5 p.m.

Excursionists - The excursionists from Ottawa to Rochester by the steamer Admiral, which touched at Kingston on Wednesday of last week, are relating their experience, which was not of a pleasant nature, through the medium of the public press.

The Hastings got aground yesterday on the west bank of Flint's Channel, but soon got off again.

The Marquis of Lorne - The following paragraph is from the Montreal Star:

"Messrs. John Smith & Co., of Kingston, owners of the steam yacht Marquis of Lorne, which was modelled and the engines built in Glasgow, Scotland, have written to the Premier, offering her for the Marquis' use on his arrival."

The Marquis of Lorne was at one time one of the prettiest steam yachts in the harbour, and might then have done credit to our new Governor-General. It has for several months been used as a tug by the Collinsby Rafting Company, and is not at present in a fit condition to carry passengers.
