Full Text

p.2 The Lachine Strike -

Dec. 21, 1877

p.3 Aground - str. Utica twice went aground on trip from Belleville to Picton.

Dec. 22, 1877

p.2 Montreal - The Canal Strike -

p.3 Navigation - Mr. Rothwell's str. Crusoe running on Bay of Quinte.

Come To Their Senses - free trade in wrecking operations needed.

The Bay - still open, Pierrepont made trip to Stone Mills.

Wrecking - The Oswego paper which stated that there was no place on the lake had proper wrecking apparatus but that port is badly mistaken. Kingston, or at least Garden Island, has the best facilities in Ontario, and few places on the American side are so well provided. But the Oswego paper may be joking; if so we will forgive and forget.
