Aylmer Express says: J.A. McCauseland drove to Port Burwell on Saturday and seized the steam barge Armenia. The boat belongs to Kingston, but had been chartered by the T.L.E. & P. railway to carry a load of cedar ties from Georgian Bay to Port Burwell, and while coming through Lake Huron she became unmanageable and required the assistance of a tug. A dispute in the price of towing was the cause of seizure.

p.6 Incidents of the Day - Capt. Bloomfield and crew, who took the steamer Richelieu to Montreal, returned home last night. They report having had a pleasant trip, all things considered.
