p.2 ad - The New & Elegant Steamers Cuba and Armenia - Toronto to Ogdensburg, with schedule and fares. Sept. 30th.

p.3 The Norman - The steambarge Norman, partly burned at Oswego on Friday night, has been towed to Kingston for repairs. She has been damaged to the extent of about $500. The fire took place in the Captain's room, but he does not know what caused it. Mr. Goodearl is deserving of sympathy, having lost all his clothing, and $500 in cash, which he had left in a trunk. The results have been serious enough in all conscience, but Captain Goodearl feels thankful that he got off as softly as he did.

Drowned - young man off wood scow near Wolfe Island.
