R.W. Travers, Brockville, is here with his yacht Ripple, accompanied by E.W. Jones and James Traynor. The boat will be dry-docked and re-planked, and several other improvements made.

The steamer Bermuda and consort Grampian which arrived at the M.T. company elevator Monday morning at ten o'clock, with 120,000 bushels of grain, cleared at half-past six o'clock in the evening.

No word had been received up till noon about the schooner Acacia, ashore on the south side of the Main Ducks. Last evening the tug Thomson passed down some miles away, and saw the Donnelly Wrecking company's crew at work. It is thought the Acacia is in a bad condition. She has 300 tons of hard coal, consigned to R. Crawford, who has it fully insured.
