Full Text



The new whaleback steamer A.D. Thomson grounded on the Canadian side, near the first red stake below Topsail Island, but succeeded in releasing herself.

The schr. G.M. Neelon was on Davis' dry dock on Saturday night. A hole in her port side, near the water line, was repaired. The str. Junita had repairs made to her wheel and stern yesterday. The barge Duluth went on dock this morning for general repairs.

It is thought the fire in the schr. Pomeroy was caused by trimmers leaving a lighted candle in the hold. They had used them in trimming the boat. This would account for the fire starting in such an inaccessible place, between the rudder and the ceiling and the mate's cabin.

A Rough Time - On the return trip from Charlotte to the city last night, nearly all the passengers on the steamboat Lora were sick in consequence of the heavy sea rolling. The wind was unusually high and the boat lurched annoyingly. The tables had to be laid on their backs to keep them safe from damage.
