p.1 Unprecedented - a raft from Hamilton went through Lost Channel.

[Cornwall Gazette]

-Fortunate Escape - str. Dagmar broke rudder chain just after passing Lachine rapids; you could see wreck of Renaud from where it happened. [Witness]

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

-The Bavarian - This handsome new steamer of the R.M. Line, built on the hull of the ill-fated steamer Kingston, arrived up last evening on her first trip, on her way to Toronto. She is to run between Prescott and Montreal, in connection with the Express Line, and only makes this trip up west to take the place of the Magnet, slightly disabled in her machinery. She is a fine boat, and is an ornament to this line of elegant boats. She made a pretty appearance as she moved out from the wharf under fast headway, through a rapidly revolving wheel. In all her appointments she is equal to any boat on the line, and will make the trip from Prescott to Montreal more attractive than heretofore. Capt. Carmichael is in command.

-Imports - 30, July 2,3.

p.3 The Glorious Fourth - celebrations at Cape Vincent include yacht races.
