p.1 May Have Another Steamer - S. Filgate and son, of Montreal, are at the Anglo American hotel. Mr. Filgate was the owner of the passenger steamer Filgate which runs between Lachine and Montreal every day. He owns another steamer, at present idle at Ogdensburg. He is desirous of putting her in service, and is thinking of bringing her here to run tri-weekly trips between Kingston and the Thousand Islands.


Clearances: prop. Glengarry and consorts, Toledo, light.

The river ferry steamer Anderson is to be sold at Coteau Landing next week.

The steamer Ontario is making good time on its run and is doing a large business.

Arrivals: schr. Maggie L., Picton, 1,000 bushels peas and oats; schr. Eliza Fisher, Charlotte, coal.

L. Francis' new steam yacht is rapidly nearing completion and will look very handsome when launched.

Hereafter the small boats will not call at Round Island or Thousand Island parks. The calls there delay the boats in running the Lachine rapids.

The sailing skiff Frontenac, owned by T. Sharman, was overhauled yesterday in preparation for the Clayton races tomorrow. The crew for the event will be the owner, J. Conway and K.A. Cameron.

The prop. Alma Munro arrived in, from Chicago, this morning with a large number of passengers, who saw the sights of the city while the steamer's cargo of wheat was being lightened. The Munro then proceeded to Montreal.

The steamyacht Bluebell, lately purchased by the Kingston foundry company from Picton parties, has been hauled out at Sharman's boathouse for refitting and repairs. Her engine, which was too small, will be replaced by a larger one.
