p.2 The Saguenay - The steamer Champion left Montreal on Saturday for Quebec and the Saguenay, to open her mid-summer trips to that delightful resort. The Magnet is so over-crowded with pleasure-seekers that a second boat, in addition to the opposition boat Union, is required to meet the increasing demands of travel in that quarter. The Champion's place on the line between Montreal and Hamilton has been filled up by the spare boat, the Banshee, which passed up on her first trip on Sunday evening, Capt. Sinclair, of the Champion, in command. The Banshee looks neat and handsome, and would not readily be taken for one of the old line.

Customs Imports - 15th - str. Ontario, Rochester; str. Watertown, Cape Vincent. (with gen cargo listed)

Marine Items - The marine reports are becoming few and far between - as stagnant as the vessel trade itself. The customs reports are very barren, and the advertised boats come and go with such regularity, that an announcement for them is not required. On Sunday the steamer Passport passed down, and the Banshee up in the evening. The propeller Magnet, from Hamilton, landed some flour and passed down in the evening. The freight steamer Ottawa left for Hamilton yesterday morning, after a short delay in port. The new vessel, the schooner Annie Falconer, reported inwards, from Clearville, with staves. The schooner Delina left for Toronto, with wood.

p.3 The Haze - is an American transport vessel in port on way for Detroit; would not salute British war vessels at Quebec and Montreal and didn't salute gunboat Hercules; she is a propeller of small dimensions.
