p.1 Pith of the News - The tug Bowman tried to pull the schooner Singapore off the St. Clair Sands, but was unable to do so. Captain James Sutherland went to Detroit later for a tug, but finally abandoned the Singapore for the winter. His brother Capt. Dan Sutherland was wrecked with the Breck. They have had bad fortune with their vessels from the east.

p.2 Incidents of the Day - The steamer Chieftain, of the Calvin company, will likely be forced to remain at Trenton for the winter.

p.3 Sea Fish at Toronto - a species of deep sea herring caught in Lake Ontario.

p.5 Incidents of the Day - The barge Augusta has been unloaded of coal at the locomotive works wharf and was towed to Garden Island this morning by the steamer Johnston.

The steamer Strathcona carried 100,000 bushels of wheat from Fort William to Goderich for Mooer's elevator, and then proceeded to Hamilton for winter quarters. The steamer Myles brought 40,000 bushels to Richardsons' elevator, but did not discharge all owing to a hitch in the machinery. She is laid up at Goderich.

The Annandale Sold - Capt. Frank McMaster has disposed of the schooner Annandale to Captain William Irving, Burlington. The Annandale is one of the finest schooners on the lakes, being classed A 2 1/2. Capt. McMaster has always made it a point to keep the schooner in first class condition, and the result may be seen in the vessel to-day. She carries a cargo of 400 tons. It is probable the Annandale will be continued on the same route on which she plied during the time she was owned by Capt. McMaster. The captain is undecided whether he will purchase another vessel or not. [Deseronto Tribune]
