p.1 General Paragraphs - The prop. Algonquin has arrived in from Duluth with 67,000 bushels of wheat.

Incidents of the Day - The str. Eurydice returned up the lake to Toronto last night. Her excursion party was given a time in Montreal. The trip was a very pleasant one.


Arrivals: Str. Passport, Toronto; str. Corsican, Montreal; str. Persia, Hamilton.

The schr. Annie Falconer got in from Oswego this morning with a cargo of coal.

The schr. Fleetwing will get away for Oswego tonight to load coal for James Swift & Co.

The tug Thompson left for Montreal this morning with four barges and a vessel laden with grain.

The barge Albani left the government drydock yesterday after being caulked and receiving general repairs.

In consequence of the prevailing low water vessels will not be allowed to enter the Welland canal drawing more than thirteen feet six inches of water.

The prop. Algonquin will be delayed at this port. Some of the studs became loose in the socket of the wheel and had to be adjusted. It is not necessary to dock the steamer.

The customs flag now flies from the customs office roof at Thousand Island Park. Heretofore Canadian vessels coming into port and desiring to make an entry were compelled to make diligent inquiry in order to ascertain where their fees were to be paid. Now by the flying of the flag, a great convenience is instituted. The flag is the regulation treasury flag of red and white traverse stripes, having the United States coat of arms surrounded by stars in the upper right hand corner.
