Kingston, Oct. 6. - James Richardson arrived home last evening from Oswego. The hull of the Richardson is lying at the bottom near the west pier. As much of the rigging as possible will be secured, and the vessel abandoned. The insurance companies will settle all claims as soon as the documents are received.
Henry Smith, mate and wife reached home at noon today. The crew jumped from the rigging to the pier. As soon as the vessel struck they made for the rigging. The schooner was only carrying the foresail when the accident occurred.
J.S.D. McCuaig, M.P., member from Prince Edward county, was in the city today, and stated his views about marine matters at Kingston pretty plainly. He advocates a tug line between Montreal and Kingston, and says when Calvin & Breck had charge of a similar line some years ago, it was seldom any damage occurred to vessels.
He further says a dry dock at Kingston is particularly wanted, as the canal system is not complete without it, and suggests that residents should endeavor to persuade the government to take hold of the matter. Thirty thousand dollars would be required to build a suitable one.
