Craig & Co.'s wharf: steamer Cuba, from Montreal, bound westward.

M.T. Co.'s wharf: tug Johnston, from Montreal, with two light barges.

Swift & Co.'s wharf: steamers Kingston, from Toronto and return; North King from Charlotte; Rideau King from Ottawa; Spartan from Hamilton.

The steamer Kingston arrived from Toronto this morning on time, having cancelled the trip to Charlotte, because of delay at Toronto, in receiving repairs to her steering gear. Complete repairs have not yet been made.

The steamer Coaster with coal from Charlotte to Clayton for the Thousand Island Steamboat company was disabled off Fairhaven by the crank pin of the engine breaking. After lying disabled for seven hours a tug towed the steamer to Oswego for repairs.

Capt. Thomas Donnelly left for Cleveland last evening in connection with the Sequin-City of Venice disaster. The owners of the Venice have libelled the Sequin for $114,101 damages. The Sequin is in dry dock at Cleveland.

p.4 Raising the Fallen Spans - The boats, plant and employees of the Collins Bay Rafting Co. left this morning for Cornwall to resume the work of raising and removing the spans of the Ottawa and New York railway bridge, which fell into the St. Lawrence 2 years ago. It is a difficult piece of work, as the current in the river at that point is very swift.

p.5 Fleet May Change Hands - N.Y. Central R.R. Co. might absorb Thousand Island & St. Lawrence River Steamboat Companies which are operated by Folgers - the two companies own and operate the St. Lawrence, New York, Empire State, Islander, New Island Wanderer, Ramona, America, Pierrepont, and Jessie Bain.
