p.1 General Paragraphs - Mr. Gilboy, second engineer of the str. Spartan, arrived from Sorel, Que., today. The steamer's machinery is now being cleaned.


The str. Armenia will get away for Toronto tomorrow morning, for a cargo of timber.

The schr. Singapore has been built up on ways near Charlotte, and will be floated shortly.

The schr. Dunn is the only vessel around here that has a season charter. She is engaged to carry timber from Toledo to Garden Island for the summer.

The officers of the str. Maud have been furnished with blue suits with brass buttons. All the officers of the St. Lawrence River Steamboat Co. will be so equipped this year.

The schr. Freeman, lying at Charlotte during the winter, loaded with coal, is now discharging her cargo at Gananoque. She is chartered to make several trips for coal for Breck & Booth.

During the winter Capt. Taylor had the anchor chains of the schr. Falconer, on the beach in Weller's Bay, stretched over the ice the full length and the irons dropped. This is to prevent the vessel drifting away, if she should happen to drift off with a rise of water.
