p.1 Incidents of the Day - Capt. Andrews' individual life-saving record embraces sixty-nine persons, eighteen women and fifty-one men and boys, sixty-five of whom are still living.

The schooner Glenora will have repairs made to her this winter.

The tug Jessie Hall was laid up today.

The tug Gorman will lay up for the winter.

Tomorrow the str. Hero will make her last trip on the Bay of Quinte this season.

A despatch says the S.S. Bannockburn passed Amherstburg at 7:30 o'clock last night. She will get here Saturday night.

The schr. Laura D. with barley; sloop Madcap oats, and the schr. Pilot, from Adolphustown, with white winter wheat, were the arrivals at Richardson & Sons today.

Last night Belleville harbor was wholly and the bay partly frozen over. Another night of similar temperature will complete the winter coating of the bay for a time, although its re-opening is quite probable.

The schr. Katie Eccles went hard upon the rocks about a mile east of Grafton early Friday morning last during the prevalence of a dense fog and a heavy sea. She was heavily laden with grain, but will likely float off when the cargo is taken out without sustaining serious damage.
