p.1 Incidents of the Day - Capt. Jarrell, Port Hope, and mate J. Johnson, Bath, arrived here yesterday to fit out the str. North King.



The str. Hero is having electric lights put in. She will be equipped with a search-light this season.

The schr. Ganges, Capt. Parsons has cleared from Port Colborne for Toledo. The vessel became icebound at Port Colborne last fall. She has a cargo of coal.

Nothing has yet been done towards getting the schr. Falconer, aground in Weller's Bay, off the beach. The water is not yet high enough to attempt to pull the boat off and Capt. Taylor will wait for a while. Capt. Cornwall will again have charge of the boat this year.

Harbor Inspector McCammon explained to a reporter this morning that with reference to the Whig's suggestion of a hat being furnished the first vessel man in port, he considered the chairman of wharves and harbor should present the tile. As this committee has been amalgamated with streets Ald. Carson will have to put up.
