p.1 General Paragraphs - This afternoon a mariner said the schr. Glenora broke away from the tug Walker on Lake Superior. The tug and Minnedosa got into port safely, but the Glenora is still adrift.

The schr. Delaware started from Garden Island, today, for Napanee, but had to run back on account of the heavy wind blowing outside.



The str. Rosedale, Kingston to Fort William, light, reported at Port Colborne last night.

The str. St. Magnus passed Port Colborne last night for Kingston. She comes from Fort William with wheat for the M.T. Co.

There were no marine arrivals this morning. Of late there have been more vessels arrive on Sunday than any other day in the week.

The tug Active was expected to arrive from Oswego yesterday, but has not yet entered port. The big winds probably detain her.

The Limekiln club, consisting of old mariners who spend the winter in Kingston, will be re-organized in a few weeks. Capt. Patenaude, of the str. St. Magnus, is the worthy president.

Mariners say that stronger gales have prevailed this fall than have been known for many years. Last night the wind rose in the southeast and moved around to the southwest and blew fiercely.
