p.2 Hanlan - Courtney Race - yacht Marquis of Lorne to take excursionists.

p.3 W.W. - The schooner Hibernia which waterlogged and capsized near Bath last week, was taken to Mill Point last Sunday.

- Mr. Rathbun to start up shipyard at Mill Point as soon as Mr. Jamieson returns from Ireland where he has been visiting for the past two months.

- Norseman running excursions at Toronto, Hastings taking her place on Port Hope-Charlotte route, and Maud taking Hastings' route.

Navigation Resumed - Navigation on the Welland Canal was resumed on Saturday afternoon. A dam having been thrown up in front of the waste weir break, the lighter class of vessels were enabled to lock up from Port Dalhousie, and a sufficient number of craft not to cause a jam, principally propellers which had been detained, were locked down from Allanburg into the lower levels. There seems to be considerable delay and difficulty in making lockage from St. Catherines down and from Port Dalhousie up, owing to the insufficient quantity of water in the levels at this point. At this time the level between locks three and four is being rapidly cleared of some half dozen northern transit steamers. At Thorold the dam which gave way at Marlatt's pond, causing the water to escape into the channel of the new canal, has been repaired. At Port Dalhousie the contractors whose plant, etc. suffered by the flood, are getting in shape again. The waste weir, however, cannot be replaced until this winter.
