p.2 The Story of the Madge - a yacht built in England, now rotting at Charlotte. [from New York Tribune]



Craig's wharf: steamer Ocean from Montreal.

Crawford's wharf: schooner Tradewind arrived from Oswego with coal, and cleared this evening.

Swift's wharf: steamers Caspian from Charlotte; Algerian from Montreal; Toronto from Toronto; Rideau Queen cleared for Ottawa.

The steamer Robinault, for the Cape Vincent route, arrived early this morning from Montreal. She was inspected today by the United States inspectors. The steamer will receive new furnishings and painting at once. Her officers are: Capt. McGlade; mate, Ira Folger; purser, A. Dickson.

The Montreal transportation company's floating elevator No. 10 was capsized by the wind in the harbor on Monday, and sank at her moorings at the head of the old Hamburg-American wharf, Montreal. Her capacity is 8,000 bushels an hour, and she is valued at $15,000. She is in good condition, and will be raised.

Andrew A. Layare, of Alexandria Bay, is authority for the statement that the Rapid transit company, which was organized last winter for the purpose of purchasing the steamer Unique, is now making negotiations for the purpose of one of the swift vessels of the Detroit river, and that if the purchase is made, the boat will be run as an excursion steamer on the St. Lawrence next summer.
