The Sailor's Rest - The sailor's rest on Ontario streeet has not been patronized as much this season as in previous years. This is owing to so few large grain vessels from American ports coming to Kingston and remaining for a day or so. The irregular arrival of some steamers has also been another cause. No Friday evening socials have been held this summer, but the regular weekly services on Sunday night have been kept up, and are greatly enjoyed by those sailors who attend.
