p.2 a sailor was lost overboard from sch. Isabella near Toronto.

-The Navigation - Lachine Canal closed by snow storm; low water has caused freight steamers to go aground in all directions. [Montreal News]

-Marine Items -

-Safely Off - sch. Garibaldi aground off U.S. Wharf; had damaged centreboard on Snake Island shoal which prevented her from raising it on entering harbor.

-The schooner S. Robinson has at last been rescued from her berth on the Charity Shoals. On Friday night, after a couple of days work in ejecting her cargo, the vessel was taken off by the tug Hiram A. Calvin, and towed to Cape Vincent. She is not as greatly injured as it was expected she would be. The schooner Annie Minnes which served as a lighter, discharged 3,170 bushels of the grain at Cape Vincent; 3000 bushels were thrown overboard and 8000 bushels still remain in the schr. S. Robinson. The former is now here, and the latter will be taken to Oswego to repair. The American authorities should certainly place a light on Charity shoals.

-Navigation Closing - Royal Mail screamers to finish this week.

-Losses - high losses on Canadian side of Lakes Erie and Huron show the need for harbors of refuge.

-Vessels Passed Through the Welland Canal - 20.

-Imports - 19,21.
