p.2 V.P.T.W.C. - 14.

-The Regatta - Oriole and Dauntless already here.

-City Council - on petition from Kingston Yacht Club, $25 was granted towards cost of Regatta; petition of Michael Enright for permission to haul out a scow at north end of Ontario St. - granted; the Minister of Marine to be requested to grant the use of iron buoys which they have in reserve, to replace the wooden ones, which are being continually carried away.

-The China - No traces have been found of the hull of the burnt Propeller China, and it must have sunk in the Lake with the weight of her cargo of pig iron. The party which went out yesterday in search of her returned unsuccessful. Capt. Harris, of the sch. Mary Fox, which arrived at Oswego yesterday, reported having seen the hull still burning at 2 A.M. inside of the False Ducks - 6 O hours after the fire broke out. The story therefore of the burning hull being seen at Snake Island Light is exploded.

-prop. Lac la Belle sunk 20 miles off Racine, Wisconsin.

-Imports - 15.

p.3 New Elevators at Montreal - 3 large steam floating elevators being built of iron at Messrs. Auger & McLennan's shipyards on Lachine Canal; this is good news for Kingston forwarders and ship owners; vessels will unload quicker and barges will return to Kingston quicker.
