Toronto, Nov. 7th - The steamer Clinton arrived yesterday from Fairport, Ohio, with the remains of the steamer Sir L. Tilley in tow. The Tilley, it will be remembered, was partially destroyed by fire at that port about two months ago. The upper works were burned off, and the iron work warped, making the vessel a rather hard looking wreck. The hull is said to be in good condition, however, and it will be a comparatively easy matter to have her put in first-class repair. The Tilley belonged to R.O. and A.B. Mackay, of Hamilton, but she has been purchased by James Carruthers & Co., of this city, who, it is understood, will ask for tenders soon to fit her up for next season's business.

p.6 Incidents of the Day - The steamer John Milne, Bay of Quinte ports to Smith's Falls, apple laden, passed up the Rideau river this morning.
