p.3 The Released Barges - Watertown and John A. Macdonald are bringing them up from the canals.

-Again In Trouble - tug Maggie towing sch. Pride of America, which struck abutment at Welland Canal.

-Wrecking - Captain Donnelly and the steamer Hiram A. Calvin, Messrs. Calvin & Breck's wrecker, has been doing most excellent service, making both a boon to unfortunate vessel owners. They have taken four stranded vessels off of South Bay Point within fifteen days. They brought here the schooner Enterprise, laden with barley for Oswego, all damaged, and which is now being discharged at the railway esplanade on the Point, and it is a wonder that she got off at all. Yesterday they took off the schooner Ocean Wave, and she is now lying at Cooper's Dock, in South Bay.
