p.1 The steamer Hamilton did not touch at this port last night. She was heavily laden with freight and passed on down the river.



The tug Shickluna with two pin-flats arrived last night from Montreal. The barges are loading grain at Richardson & Sons' elevator.

The pumping out of the barge Jennie Matthews, at Brockville, commenced Sunday morning. A port hole was discovered by a diver, six and a half inches in diameter, which had previously escaped notice, and operations were suspended until the hole was closed up.
