The str. Hall has cleared for up the lakes. She has no charter at present.

Raft No. 8 has left Garden Island for Quebec in tow of the str. Hiram Calvin.

Str. Corsican, Toronto, and the str. Passport, Montreal, were Swift's arrivals today.

The schr. Queen of the Lakes has arrived at Richardson's dock with grain from Hamilton.

The str. Bon Voyage arrived up from Ogdensburg last night and proceeded to Charlotte. This is her first trip during the season.

The str. James Swift, which should have arrived from Ottawa last night, did not arrive until this morning. She was delayed at Washburn.

Commencing on July 5th the str. Islander will run regular trips between the Thousand Islands and the city. She will bring an excursion from the islands to the city tomorrow.

The propellor Ocean, which was sunk during a collision on the St. Lawrence river, has been raised by the Donnelly wrecking company, and will come up the river this evening to the city under her own steam.

The tug Hall passed the Ocean's wreck during the night. The captain concluded that the Ocean is practically off the bottom. Her stern, which was sunk, has been made level with the bow, and he does not consider the wrecking company will have any trouble in raising the boat.


Lake Steamer Bon Voyage will leave Kingston every Sunday, Wednesday and Friday at 7:30 p.m. For Alexandria Bay and Ogdensburg every Sunday, Wednesday and Friday at 4:15 a.m. For berth and tickets call on James Swift & Co.
