M.T. company wharf: tug Bronson up with two light barges.

Swift's wharf: steamers Kingston down; Spartan from Hamilton.

Craig's wharf: steamers Persia down; Ocean up tonight; tug Shanly from Ottawa.

The steamer North King will come down only once a week for the balance of the season.

Captain Frank Dana has purchased the steamer Riverside at Buffalo, to replace the Massena, which was destroyed by fire last month.

The steamers Rideau King and Queen will be laid up at Kingston this coming winter. Last winter they remained at Jones' Falls, but that place is unsatisfactory.

Capt. Noonan, managing director of the Rideau Lakes Navigation company, is well satisfied with the business done this season by the Rideau steamers. The traffic has been steady all summer. The change of eastern terminal from Ottawa to Smith's Falls has been most satisfactory, as a better service is thus afforded. The trip from Smith's Falls to Ottawa was never a pleasure to passengers as it was done by night.

p.5 Cabmen Fined - for soliciting passengers on Ferry Wharf, contrary to city by-law #57.
