p.8 The Steambarge Released - The steambarge Parsons, owned by Capt. Wheeler, Chaumont, N.Y., and which brought a cargo of coal here a week ago, was seized by the Sheriff of Frontenac for $105 salvage. The claim was made by the crew of the Calvin steamer Johnston which brought the Parsons into port, after it had broken its machinery in the Batteau channel. Capt. Wheeler disputed the amount, but has now paid it, and the Parsons has been released.

Not Yet Released - The steamer Turret Crown, which ran upon the shoal above Nine Mile Point Friday morning, had not been released at one o'clock this afternoon. The steamers Pierrepont and New Island Wanderer were still at work trying to pull her off. A portion of her wheat in bags was brought down on the steamer Pierrepont.
