Full Text

The new bark AUGUSTA cleared for Kingston on Saturday with 20,218 bu. corn, shipped by E.R. Williams & Co. This is probably the largest load ever taken from that port for shipment through the Welland Canal. The AUGUSTA is owned by Sylvester Neelon and was built by the celebrated builder Lewis Shickluna, of St. Cathrines, and is designed to carry 21,000 bu. corn or wheat through the Welland Canal, but owing to the low and varying stages of water in the harbor and on the bar a full load was not taken. - Toledo Blade.
