p.1 General Paragraphs - The tug Reginald cleared for Oswego today with light barges to load coal for Montreal.


The repairs to the steambarge Jack will be started today. The survey has been completed, but the loss has not been definitely determined as yet.

The sloop Laura D. is in from Amherst Island with a cargo of hay.

Arrivals: Strs. Algerian, Persia, Spartan, Montreal; Corsican, Toronto.

T. Donnelly left today for Verona to inspect a tug and passenger barge owned by G. Bauder.

W. Lesslie had the contract of putting the str. Ocean in the Montreal drydock. She is now being repaired.

The str. Campana, taken down to Montreal by Mr. Lesslie, has left the drydock after being rivetted together.

Cleared from Garden Island: Str. Clinton, barges Grimsby, Lisgar, Marquette, light; Emerald, Toledo, light.

The prop. Bannockburn, towing the barges Selkirk and Winnipeg, arrived at the M.T. Co.'s dock last night, with 16,000 bushels of wheat from Fort William.

The schr. Picton, Capt. Horn, made the round trip between Wolfe Island and Fairhaven in twenty-three hours. This includes the loading of two hundred tons of coal.

The prop. Ocean will be on her route again on Tuesday. The worst damage the vessel sustained was the partial knocking off of her stem or main forward timber, which jammed to one side while the vessel lay suspended by her bow and stern in the canal. The only other damage was the knocking of a hole in the side above the deck. This was done by several cases of galvanized iron, each weighing over a ton, and a cask of soda, which weighed a ton and a half all of which were sent flying against the vessel's side when she lay over in the canal.

Sporting Paragraphs - The lake yacht racing association has its annual meeting at Hamilton, beginning July 15th. On Dominion day there will be a race at Hamilton Beach for the Queen's cup.
