p.2 Incidents of the Day - This morning Calvin & Co.'s seventh raft of timber left Garden Island for Quebec. Another one will leave in a day or two.


The tug Jessie Hall, with one barge, light, arrived from Montreal last night.

The steamers Clinton and Orion, Kingston to upper lake ports to load timber, passed through the Welland canal yesterday.

The steamer Corsican was delayed three hours by fog on her way from Toronto to this port this morning. Capt. Estes states that he never before experienced such a heavy fog. The sea was running very high before a wind from the west, and a most uncomfortable time was spent by those on board. The vessel, however, weathered the gale and reached this port at eight o'clock. She remained here a short time and cleared for Montreal.

p.6 General Paragraphs - A timber raft in tow of the steamer Parthia left Garden Island for Quebec last evening.

The schooner Emerald arrived at Garden Island yesterday with a cargo of oak timber, from Toledo, Ohio, for Calvin & Co. She clears for Toledo, this evening, for another cargo of timber for the same firm.
