p.3 The Admiral - At latest reports this steamer was still aground. On Wednesday they let her fires go out, and the revenue cutter Manhattan has been trying to pull her off the rocks. A telegram last night says: "The Admiral tonight looks as one foresaken, the revenue cutter Manhattan, this p.m., having given her up. It is said it is the intention of the owners to employ some wrecking boat from Kingston, and by filling boats with water and running them under the Admiral, then pumping the water out of the boats, thus lifting the Admiral off the shoal. The only way they will be able to get her off is by lifting her in some such manner."

A Very Quick Trip - On Wednesday morning the tug Glide, belonging to the Montreal Transportation Company, left the harbour with the barges Cayuga and Oswego, in tow for Oswego to load coal. The tow returned yesterday (Thursday) morning at six o'clock with 1,400 tons of coal, making the round trip and loading in 24 hours. This is one of the quickest trips on record.

Yachting - The yacht Crusader, from Ottawa, with a party of twelve on board, was in the harbour last evening. It is on a cruise among the islands. The crew call themselves "The Innocents Abroad," and an innocent lot they are, although jolly good fellows. They report having a very pleasant time.

The Maud - The accident to this favourite steamer was repaired by noon yesterday and she took over the St. Andrew's Sunday School picnic to Channel Grove. In the afternoon she made the regular trip to the Cape, returning at night. She was running on the Cape route today.
