The str. Pierrepont will make only two trips a week to Gananoque hereafter.

The schr. Fabiola cleared this morning for Big Sodus to load coal for Belleville.

The steambarge King Ben left last night for Bay of Quinte ports to load apples for Montreal.

The str. Arabian, from Fort William, arrived today with 41,000 bushels of wheat for the M.T. Co.

The marine insurance will soon terminate for the season, which will practically end navigation until next spring.

The tug Thomson arrived from Montreal this morning with four light barges and will clear tonight for the same port with four barges grain laden.

The propeller Niagara, from Toledo, arrived this morning with 25,000 bushels of corn for the M.T. Co. She experienced a stormy passage on her run down from the canal.

The fine weather today allowed many of the sailing vessels that were tied up at the wharves and at anchor under lee shores awaiting the abatement of the wind to hoist sail and clear for their destinations.

The deck of the big barge Glenora has been lowered two feet to make her more manageable. The Glenora is fourteen years old and the timbers in her hull, with the exception of a few planks just below her bulwarks that were cracked and ground in a collision, are as solid and clear today as when put into her. She is built of white ash secured in this immediate vicinity.

p.2 An Action For Damages - (in high court of justice) O'Neil vs. N.K. and M. Connolly - while working for Connolly Bros. last spring for $1.25 a day, building iron dredge in Kingston dry dock, he was injured by the falling of an iron frame while it was hoisted by a derrick.
