p.1 General Paragraphs - The steambarge King Ben cleared for Oswego, last night, to load coal for Smith's Falls.


The str. Pilgrim has been repainted. The new coat made quite a difference.

J.B. Carruther's steamyacht, Marquis of Lorne, has been launched and is now in use. Jake Mathews is engineer.

The schr. Queen of the Lakes reported in from Oswego today and the schrs. Fabiola and Fleetwing cleared for Charlotte.

Swift's dock arrivals: Str. Hamilton, Hamilton; str. Spartan, Montreal; str. Algerian, Toronto; str. Bon Voyage, Charlotte.

Yesterday was the str. Bon Voyage's first appearance at this port this season. The steamer is looking very trim and snug and expects to do a big river trade.

The prop. Ocean ran into lock 17, of the Cornwall canal this morning, tearing away three gates. It cannot be ascertained at present how long navigation will be suspended, but it is expected it will cause suspension of traffic for four or five days at least. The Ocean's position completely blocks the canal.
