p.1 What Is Said Here - railroad officials wanted the R. & O. to delay mail steamer so that they could have their breakfast on train; the mail steamer left on time.



The strs. Spartan and Corsican will lay up here next winter.

The schr. Grantham is on Davis' dry dock for general repairs for the fall trade.

The str. Celtic left last night in tow of the prop. Lake Michigan for Port Dalhousie. The former will be drydocked there to receive a new wheel.

Arrivals: tug Bronson and six barges, Montreal, light; tugs Active and Thompson and nine barges, Montreal, light; steamyacht Ella, Alexandria Bay fishing party; sloop Lorraine, Cape Vincent, light.

Clearances: prop. St. Magnus, Chicago; prop. Glengarry and consorts, Charlotte, light; tug Active and four barges, Montreal, grain; tug Thompson and two barges, Toledo, light; prop. Rhoda Emily, Oswego, light.

The schr. John B. Merrill (sic) discharged at Portsmouth 42,979 bushels of rye, from Chicago, and the schr. W.T. Greenwood 9,170 bush. of wheat, from Ridgetown. The str. W.B. Hall has left has left for Port Colborne; the schr. J.B. Merrill for Oswego, and the schr. Persia for Toronto, with stone.

This morning a despatch was received from Montreal enquiring if there had been any disaster to the str. Alexandria. The steamer left here last night at 8:30 o'clock, reached Gananoque and Brockville safely, and at 8:30 o'clock this morning passed Prescott. The story is probably a hoax.
