The steambarge John Milne is here for inspection. She goes to Oswego.

The steamer India and consort cleared from Garden Island for Port Colborne.

Craig's wharf: steamer Alexandria, Montreal to Charlotte, expected this evening.

Richardsons' elevator: schooner Maggie L. from Napanee with barley; sloop Pilot, from Belleville with oats; sloop Monitor cleared for Collins Bay with wheat.

The steambarge Bothnia, having in tow the barge Valencia, is ashore on Carleton Island near Cape Vincent, N.Y. Both are coal laden for the Pennsylvania coal company, Montreal, by which company they are owned. The Bothnia was formerly owned by the Calvin company, and left Garden Island only a few days ago. She is on mud bottom, and no damage will result. Part of her cargo is being transferred to the Valencia. The tug Frontenac of the Calvin company and the tug Dauntless of Prescott, have gone to the assistance of the Bothnia.

p.6 Incidents Of The Day - The schooner Van Straubenzie was badly wrecked in a squall on Lake Ontario, west of Fairhaven, on Wednesday.

The Bothnia Released - The steamer Bothnia, which went ashore at Carleton Island yesterday, was released this morning, and arrived at Garden Island this afternoon. A tug took the coal-laden barge Valencia to Montreal.
