p.1 He Died Suddenly - Martin Staley, proprietor of the Jubilee hotel, Wellington street. "He had been a sailor the most of his life and commanded numerous lake vessels. Among the schooners he captained were the St. Andrews, Napier, America, Ayr, Wave Crest and Laurel, the last named he owned."



The str. Nile and barge Isis are laid up at Deseronto for the winter. They had a long season.

The schr. B.W. Folger arrived from Clayton yesterday afternoon. The boys say they were not long enough on the water to get cold as the run down, a distance of twenty miles, was made in two hours, steam boat time. A quick run was also made back. The Folger went over wth shingles and no doubt has made the last trip of the season. She is now being stripped.
