p.3 An Important Change - A statement is published by the Detroit Free Press to the effect that the steamers of the Northern Transit Company, heretofore connected with the Vermont Central Railroad at Ogdensburg, will, during the coming season, run from Chicago to Sarnia (Ontario), Toledo, and Cleveland solely in the interest of the Grand Trunk Railway. The change has been contemplated for some time, and was consummated in Montreal a couple of days ago. There is now no American line of steamers running through the Welland Canal.
Wind Wafts - The woman living aboard the schr. Belle, at Oswego, and Capt. Farrington, deny the allegations of Storey, the sailor. They charge him with slander and theft.
