p.2 Long Trip in Short Time - Capt. Thomas Donnelly returned Saturday from a 2,200 mile trip of inspection, which he accomplished within a week. He left Kingston on Sunday, going to Chicago, where he inspected two boats. Thence he went to Milwaukee, where he inspected two more; thence to Detroit, where one was finished up; next to Cleveland, where he went over two; then one at Erie and two at Buffalo. Leaving Buffalo at five o'clock Saturday he reached Kingston at noon. It was a long jaunt to accomplish in a week, especially as he had so much work laid out for him to perform within a given time.


M.T. company elevator: tug Bronson with six light barges from Montreal, cleared with two grain-laden.

The steamer America will clear tonight for Alexandria Bay to bring up the regular excursion to Kingston tomorrow.

The steamer Brockville came up Saturday to have some repairs made to her machinery. She returned today to Brockville.

Craig's wharf: steamers Niagara from Thousand Island Park; Ocean and Melbourne from Montreal; Persia from Hamilton.

Swift's wharf Sunday: steamers Kingston and North King down and up; steamer Corsican from Hamilton. The steamyachts Dortha and Edith were in port today. The steamer Rideau Queen cleared this morning for Ottawa.

The steamer Cuba, Montreal to Cleveland, with a general cargo, ran ashore about three hundred yards west of the pier at Port Dalhousie, early Saturday morning, while trying to make port in a dense fog. She was released by tugs, after lightering a portion of her cargo, and was taken to dry dock at Port Dalhousie, where it was found three blades of her propellor had been broken.

p.5 Nearly the entire crew of the str. Jessie Bain, engaged in a survey of the River St. Lawrence, have returned to the city. The steamer is expected in port tonight, having completed the season's work.

p.6 From Belleville To T.I. Park - On Saturday the steamers Varuna and Niagara carried an excursion from Belleville to Thousand Island Park, under the auspices of the Methodist Church of Belleville. The steamers called here this morning en route home. The excursion was not well patronized, as one boat would have easily carried all the passengers.
