p.2 Currency - str. Picton made last trip from Toronto to Port Dalhousie; City of Toronto to close season on Saturday.

p.3 Accidents - The propeller City of Toledo, laden with wheat and flour, is reported sunk about nine miles below Alexandria Bay, having struck on her passage down the river. She lies near the Sisters. The tug Chieftain and Donnelly's wrecking party proceeded today to the scene of the accident, having two pumps and a lighter with which to raise the propeller.

Caught In the Gale - Last night the schooner Niagara, grain laden, arrived here from Kincardine, consigned to Messrs. Holcomb & Stewart. She was caught in the recent heavy gale on Lake Erie and lost her rudder and yawl boat, so that it may be assumed she suffered severely. This morning she was towed to the dock by the Franklin. A large portion of her cargo has been damaged.

W.W. - Schr. Sherman lost near Oswego. She was owned by Capt. Godfrey and Albert Stewart of Sacketts, and was valued at $2,000.

- The Rambler, a little pleasure boat running on the American Channel, is being refitted for next summer. She will have machinery to give her increased speed.

-Correction - wedding announcement of Capt. White of str. Empress of India.
