Full Text



Schr. Denmore (Dunmore ?) is now completed with the exception of being rigged out with sails. Her canvas will not be fitted till the spring. It is not yet decided who will have the captaincy of the new boat.

Out of the $37,000 appropriation for the Oswego harbor, $20,000 has been spent in repairs and improvements. The breach in the breakwater, repaired this summer, cost $10,000. The work of dredging the river has been long and tedious, some 3,000 yards of solid rock having been removed, giving an extension of deep water basin some ninety-five feet farther up the river.

p.5 Kingston In Brief - The schr. Pilot is in with a cargo of grain from Wolfe Island.

Semi-Weekly British Whig, Dec. 31, 1894

p.5 Kingston In Brief - The schr. Annandale reached Deseronto on Dec. 21st with coal. The trip was one of the most stormy ever experienced. This is the latest date at which sailing vessels unaided ever entered Deseronto.

The str. Magnet will be rebuilt during the winter at Sorel, Que. Her berth capacity will be increased to 160 passengers, a new engine put in, the cabin refitted, and patent feather paddle wheels put in. Probably $15,000 will be expended.
