Schooner Belle Hanscom, which passed through the terrible gale on Lake Erie, is at Ogdensburg. The Hanscom was in such a bad shape after her encounter with the gale that she had to be unloaded at Buffalo, taken out and repaired, and then reloaded. She is commanded by Capt. Van Dusen. During the gale the captain was thrown across the deck. His face striking against a mast was badly injured. After his experience during that terrible night Capt. Van Dusen says he will never again sail a schooner.

Ice formed quite thickly in Anglin's Bay last night.

The M.T. Co.'s two tows of light barges up from Montreal should be in tonight.

The str. Alexandria took the schr. Echo to Weller's Bay to lighten the steambarge Aberdeen, which ran aground there on Monday night.

The schr. D.G. Fort ran on the beach at Oswego on Tuesday morning. She is not seriously damaged. Albert Beaupre of Kingston is first mate.

Local mariners think a subscription should be started for the benefit of Capt. Beard, who lost the schr. Baltic. He is a deserving man, having worked hard all his life.

The schr. A.L. Andrews, bound up the lake with a coal cargo, ran into Port Colborne last evening from Long Point where she has been sheltered for several days from the storm. Provisions were nearly gone and she went to the canal for a supply.

The schr. Katie Eccles is reported as having run aground near Cobourg.

p.2 Thousand Island Park - Nov. 26th - The steambarge Arctic was released on Monday evening by the steambarge Ringleader after lightening part of her load....

p.4 The Deep Water Association - draft of a bill to be presented to the U.S. Congress.

Weekly British Whig, Nov. 29, 1894

p.3 MARINE INTELLIGENCE - After paying all expenses the schr. Annie Falconer had just $30 to her credit this year. And then she was considered lucky.
