Montreal Transportaton Co. - Received by the schr. Harriet Buller 7,320 bush. spring wheat.

The steamer Algerian, of the Richelieu & Ontario Navigation Company, was the first to run the rapids this season. She arrived at Montreal about eight o'clock Sunday evening. It was quite dark as she passed through the Victoria Bridge, and it is an unusual thing for a steamer to run the rapids at so late an hour.

Thorold, May 6th - The Welland Canal between here and Port Robinson is full of propellors, barges and schooners waiting for the main channel to open at Port Colborne which is expected to be open this afternoon. The canal officials are doing all in their power to hurry and aid vessels forward but as no tugs can get down from Port Colborne yet they are at a disadvantage but are working night and day.
