The barge was headed to Gananoque with a cargo of 110 tons of coal when she struck and was completely stranded. She will have to undergo repairs.

The Steamer Rideau King - The new steamer Rideau King, of the Rideau Lakes navigation company, left this afternoon for Ottawa, with a good passenger list. Capt. E. Fleming was in command. The interior decorations and furnishings have not yet been completed, but everything will be in order by the end of the week.
