The steamer Saturn, oak-laden from Sandusky to Montreal, was in port today. She was loaded to fourteen feet and consequently was unable to pass the mud bank at the foot of Wolfe Island. In order to get down the river she was obliged to run up the lake and go down the American channel.

Ill luck seems to pursue the tug Petrel, owned by the Collins Bay rafting company. The steamer was lying in a port at Newfoundland, after having been nearly wrecked recently. She was under orders to proceed to another wreck and was moving a large pump from forward to stern when a stay between the fore and aft masts broke allowing the pump to fall and carrying masts and smoke stack overboard.

p.6 Mr. Nicholl's steam yacht Nokomis was in the gov't dry dock today having her rudder and wheel repaired.
