Full Text

p.1 General Paragraphs - The str. Pierrepont will only make three trips a day to Wolfe Island after the 1st of the month. She is now making five trips daily.


Clearances: tug Bronson, Montreal, four barges.

The prop. Persia is now and for some time past the only passenger steamer trading from the west into Montreal on schedule times.

Arrivals: prop. Myles, Fort William, 36,200 bushels wheat.

The barge Acacia left Davis' dry-dock yesterday, and the barge Nebraska entered.

The prop. Myles arrived with 36,000 bushels of wheat at one o'clock this morning and was unloaded and cleared for Hamilton at eight o'clock this morning. Pretty quick time. The Myles had a deck load of car wheels for Hamilton.

The scow Wood Duck arrived from bay ports with a cargo of potatoes to dispose of. Being unable to sell them here the captain was told by some one that potatoes were needed on Wolfe Island. He went over there, but very likely to find he had been fooled.
