Craig's wharf: steamer Melbourne and Alexandria from Montreal.

Richardsons' elevator: schooner Straubenzie cleared for Prescott.

Swift's wharf: steamer Toronto down and up; steamer Rideau King from Ottawa.

The steamer Pierrepont resumed her route today after receiving repairs to her hull in Davis' dry dock.

Repairs to the str. New York, of the Thousand Island steamboat company, have been completed, and it was expected that the steamer would be off the M.T. company marine railway this afternoon.

The steamer Ramona had another trial spin around the harbor yesterday afternoon. She started out with the steamer New Island Wanderer, which she easily distanced in a run three miles up. The Ramona has a speed of seventeen miles an hour. Every improvement possible has been made to her so that she will outdo all her rivals in running the narrow passages through the Thousand Islands.


The news that Capt. Donnelly of Kingston has been appointed superintendent of the Knapp tubular steamship company was heard by surprise by many in the forwarding trade. Few are better known in the trade than is Capt. Donnelly, and some of his friends were loth to believe that he had cast in his lot with the Knapp company, which the management asserts, nevertheless.

Capt. Donnelly is among the most experienced of the well known lake and river experts, and everyone who heard of his appointment, remarked that if made and accepted, it would be a good one for the company at all events. [Montreal Witness]

p.4 The Dredge Is Idle - Bath, June 5th - The dredge Sir Richard has been idle since last Friday, owing to an accident to one of the large castings.
