The steamer Glengarry and tug Bronson arrived to-day with five light barges from Montreal.

The schooner Dominion met with an accident at Brockville yesterday. She was being towed by a tug and struck a dock. A hole, four feet square, was stove in her port bow. The vessel was brought to Kingston and placed in Davis' drydock for repairs. No other damage was done.

Capt. Bates will have a vessel in a few days and draw coal for the remainder of the season. The loss of the schooner Fabiola was a greater blow to him than some people suppose. He says he lost every dollar he had in the vessel and had not friends come to his assistance in obtaining another vessel he would be in pretty hard shape.

Death of Charles S. McNeill - 85 years old; for years captain of the steamer Prince Alfred on Ottawa River, then got job in Kingston penitentiary.

A Fine Piece of Work - There is on exhibition in the window of Wade's drug store a miniature sailing vessel, full rigged and out-fitted. It is the work of Alfred Bernier, Garden Island, and shows great skill and ability in workmanship. The stand on which it rests is composed of 1,000 pieces of wood, delicately interlaced. On the vessel, not a rope, not a jib, or any other part of a ship's rigging is missing. It is well worthy of inspection. The whole model was built in less than a month.
