Full Text



Richardsons' elevator: schooner Laura D. from bay ports with grain.

Crawford's wharf: schooner Acacia from Charlotte with coal; Tradewind cleared for Oswego.

M.T. company elevator: tug Mary up with three light barges, and cleared down with four, grain-laden.

Swift's wharf: steamers Toronto from Toronto; Caspian from Charlotte; Rideau King cleared for Smith's Falls; Corsican from Montreal tonight; Rideau Queen from Smith's Falls.

The steamer Turret Chief arrived up from Montreal last evening, laden with railway iron. Two weeks ago she took down a cargo of grain. After coaling at Swift's wharf she cleared for Fort William. The big steamer was drawing thirteen and a half feet.

Vessels from the west like to coal at Kingston, for here they are not buncoed. Some western coaling places captains find give only 1,500 pounds to the ton, but it is difficult to effect a remedy as much dependence has to be placed in the honesty of dealers. At Kingston when vessels coal at Crawford's, Swift's, or Craig's wharves they get 2,000 pounds to the ton.

p.4 World Tidings - The steamer Waverley was sunk in collision with the Turret Court near Harbor Beach, Mich.
