Craig's wharf: steamers Persia down; Ocean up tonight.

The steamer New Island Wanderer has gone to Clayton to begin her trips among Thousand Island points.

Swift's wharf: steamers Kingston down and up; Rideau King from Ottawa this evening; schooner Suffel from Oswego with coal.

M.T. company elevator: S.S. Rosemount and consorts will likely clear tonight for Fort William; tug Thomson arrived up with three light barges.

Gasoline yachts down the river are rapidly taking away the business formerly done among the Thousand Islands by the steamyachts. The Canadian marine law will not allow them to carry passengers, but the United States regulations are rather lax, and permit of this.

p.5 Marine Notes - The steamer America went to Gananoque this afternoon. She carries an excursion from there to Clayton tonight.

The schooner Northern Light is loading hay at Marysville for Cape Vincent.

The steamer Pierrepont took the Cape Vincent route trip this afternoon.
