p.6 Incidents of the Day - It was the steamer Rideau King, not the Queen, which received repairs in Davis' dry dock.

The steam yacht Albani, owned by W.H. Comstock, Brockville, with her owner and a party on board, collided with the ferry steamer Belleville at Ogdensburg. The Belleville, lying at dock, was rammed amidships and cut down to the water line. A panic ensued but no one was hurt. Misunderstood signals caused the accident.
