Steamer Chieftain Quarantined - This morning the Calvin company received word that their steamer Chieftain, which left Garden Island a week ago with a raft of timber for Quebec, had been quarantined near that place, on account of a small-pox case having been on board on the down trip. It seems that a hand was taken on somewhere down the river, but as soon as it was discovered that he had small-pox he was put off at Cornwall. News of the occurrence reached Quebec, and a quarantine was established on the steamer by the medical health officials.

A Fine Yacht - The sailing yacht, Gloria, owned by Mr. McLeod, manager of the Toronto branch of the bank of Nova Scotia, was in port to-day en route to Toronto. The Gloria is almost at the end of a long cruise, which began at Bristol, England, upwards of two months ago. She sailed across the ocean and made a remarkably fast run, not having to tack once. The Gloria last year cleared out all the French yachts at a big race held in France.
