Richardsons' elevator: schooner Maggie L. from bay ports with grain.

The steamer Donnelly did service on the Wolfe Island ferry yesterday afternoon.

Craig's wharf: steambarge Waterlily, Picton to Montreal; steamer Alexandria, Olcott to Quebec.

The steamer New Island Wanderer makes her last trip among the Thousand Islands tomorrow. On Thursday she will be placed on the Kingston-Cape Vincent route.

Swift's wharf: steamers Toronto, from Toronto; Caspian from Charlotte; Rideau King from Ottawa; Spartan from Montreal; steambarge Arctic from Charlotte with coal.

The steambarge Arctic, which arrived at Swift's wharf yesterday, had a rough time after leaving Charlotte last Thursday. She encountered a very heavy storm, and the captain feared the vessel would founder. The Arctic sprang a leak, but managed to reach Oswego, where temporary repairs were made.

To Have An Investigation - It is understood that J. Israel Tarte, minister of public works, has ordered an investigation into the charges made openly concerning affairs aboard the survey steamer Jessie Bain.

p.3 The excursion steamer Alert and the steamer Sunbeam collided in Clear Lake, near Peterboro'. The Alert was sunk, but all on board were saved.

The dredge Tarte was launched at Polson's shipyard, Toronto, on Monday in the presence of Hon. J. Israel Tarte and a number of distinguished guests.

p.5 Ran On a Shoal - The steamyacht Thyra, owned by A.G. Fenwick, of Belleville, struck the shoal below Rock Island lighthouse near Fine View Park on Monday. After being released the Thyra proceeded to Kingston, and will enter Davis' dry dock for repairs. Only a few weeks ago, this steamyacht broke her shaft.

Personal Mention - Capt. Donnelly has been invited to be present at the launching of the new steamship Huronic at Collingwood on September 12th.
