p.2 Marine - The str. Wellington, which went from Kingston, has succeeded in taking the tug Maria Melvin from her dangerous situation at Oswego. Four steam pumps were at work, with a diver, on the sch. Norwegian, but attempts to get her off have been abandoned as useless. The Wellington has therefore gone with the pumps and diver to the "Devils Nose", near the Genessee River, where the sch. Lillie Parsons is ashore, with the purpose of assisting her. The Lillie Parsons was from Milwaukee to Oswego with wheat and is owned at Oswego. The U.S. Government have completed the lighthouse on the Sister Islands, St. Lawrence River, 8 miles from Alexandria Bay.

-Imports - 23-25.
