Full Text



The M.T. company barge Montreal is on the marine railway for repairs.

Richardsons' elevator: steambarge Alberta and sloops Pilot and Monitor from bay ports.

Craig's wharf: steamer Persia from Toronto; sloop Idlewild, from down the river, with stone.

M.T. company elevator: S.S. Bannockburn cleared for Fort William, light; lake barges Dunmore and Winnipeg after lightening cleared for Montreal.

The steamer New Island Wanderer ran from Clayton to Cape Vincent today. The steamer America took the Kingston-Cape Vincent route, being a more comfortable steamer for the New York excursionists.

Last night the S.S. Rosemount, which cleared on Tuesday for Fort William, arrived back in the harbor. She had to return with her consorts on account of the gale outside. Both consorts broke away from the Rosemount, on arriving in the harbor, and drifted down the river, but were brought back by one of the M.T. company's tugs. After coaling, all three vessels cleared this morning.

Personal Mention - Capt. Shaw of the schooner Fleetwing left last night for his home at Brighton.

p.6 Incidents of the Day - Enquiries from Toronto were made today about the schooners Rutherford and Mowat. They are reported missing. The schooner was here last week.
