p.1 His Resignation Refused - Montreal, Nov. 25th - At a meeting of the board of directors of the Richelieu & Ontario navigation company this morning the resignation of president N.K. Connolly as president was read, but the board unanimously refused to accept the same and appointed Michael Connolly as acting president during the incarceration of his brother.

Incidents of the Day - Mate DeRoche, of the schr. B.W. Folger, never saw such continuous hard weather. Vessels have been laid up for the past two weeks waiting to get away. The longest he was ever wind bound before was in Oswego four days one time, and Charlotte three. This is a bad time of affairs for chartered vessels.

The prop. F.H. Prince was obliged to run into this port for shelter last night. She was en route from Ogdensburg to Chicago but encountered too heavy a sea outside and had to run in. The Prince belongs to the Vermont Cenral line and will lay up at Chicago.

The tug Bonar called here on her way to Belleville this morning. The Bonar has been engaged at the Cornwall canal all summer towing barges. She had a good season.

The schr. White Oak has at last got away for Toronto. The schrs. Grantham and Folger expect to get out today.

The schr. Queen of the Lakes has reached Oswego.
