Full Text

p.1 Incidents of the Day - The schr. Hanlan was moved down below Cataraqui bridge for winter quarters.

With the exception of the str. Sylvan Stream, Folger Bros. have very little repairs to do to their boats this winter. The steamers are all in good order.

p.2 The R. & O. Steamers - Quite a change will be operated in the running of some of the Richelieu & Ontario steamers next season. Instead of putting the new steamer Carolina, recently purchased at Baltimore, on the route between Quebec and Saguenay, she will be run from Montreal direct, making the change at Quebec unnecessary. Little will be decided as to the paying of a dividend until the company's annual meeting at the first of the year.

p.4 Schooners Robbed - Capt. Braund, of the schr. Annie Minnes, discovered, this morning, that his vessel had been broken into and the cabin and forecastle ransacked, and every article that could be easily carried stolen. The captains of other vessels in the harbor became uneasy on hearing of Capt. Braund's loss, and Capt. Corson, of the W.J. Suffel, and Capt. R. Edmunds, of the L.B. Bullock, found the cabins of their vessels had been also robbed of waterproof clothing, clocks and other articles. The thief left a bundle in one of the boats whereby he may be identified.
