Personal Mention - Capt. Hinckley has returned to the city after putting the steamer Columbian into winter quarters.

p.5 The Steamer Abandoned - Collingwood, Sept. 22nd - After an unsuccessful attempt to raise the American steamer City of Cleveland, which went ashore near the Cape Hurd Channel last fall, the wreckers have abandoned the job. Capt. H.W. Baker, of Detroit, worked 18 days, built coffer dams and was raising the boat when the rocks slipped out of her bottom. The boat is now a total loss, as the decks are out and the cabins are gone and the sides are spread out four feet.

p.6 A Steamboat Case - At the police court next Friday morning will be heard a steamboat case. The Canadian marine department charges Capt. Roys, of this city, with violating the law by carrying too many passengers on the steamer Rival, running her without the necessary officers, and out of her district. The case arose out of a complaint made by Rev. Mr. McKee, Smithfield.

A New Steamer - At a meeting of the Rideau Lakes Navigation company, it was decided to build a new steamer for the Kingston-Ottawa route. Plans are being got out, and the work will go ahead immediately. The new steamer will be of steel frame, three feet narrower than the Rideau Queen, but with similar conveniences and comforts. It will be ready for service next June.
