Full Text

There was a moonlight excursion on the City of London on Tuesday night, which was largely attended by our townsfolk.

The steamer Chicora called at the Superior wharf here last Tuesday night, on her way to Duluth and Thunder Bay.

The City of London left this port on Tuesday night with flour for Parry Sound from which place she will proceed to Chatham, thence to Kincardine, and thence to Chicago.

The Frances Smith came into port yesterday morning, and laid all day yesterday and to-day at her old dock up the river. Her staterooms have been newly carpeted and repainted for the summer excursion trips, the first of which she makes from this place to-morrow night.

The steamer Algoma came into this port on Thursday last, in a disabled condition, having her engine badly smashed. Messrs. Corbet & Sons are engaged in removing the broken machinery and replacing it with new. They expect to have her ready for sailing again in the course of two or three weeks.
