Police Court - A summons case of non-payment of wages against the captain of the schooner St. Andrews was dismissed.

p.3 Ashore - The schooner Langmuir is ashore off Galoo Island - all hands safe. She is owned principally by Mr. D. Watters of Belleville.

Trenton & Belleville - Mr. James Fisher of Kingston, has placed his steam yacht on the Trenton and Belleville route, in place of the steamer Mary Ann, which was spoken of some time ago in connection with this line, but which came to grief by a boiler explosion down the Rideau Canal. Let the Ontario say the rest: "The Marquis of Lorne is comfortably and handsomely furnished and has good accommodation, so that passengers by her will find the passage pleasant and comfortable, as well as expeditious, her speed being equal to any of the large steamers running the Bay. In short she is just what has been wanted between these two points for a long time."
