Marine men continue to complain about the buoys for the channel at the foot of Wolfe Island not being placed in position. The buoys still lie on the pier, and the channel remains unmarked.

Personal Mention - Capt. Hinckley, of the R. & O. steamer Columbian, has returned to the city, his season's work being completed.

p.3 To Bring It Up - cargo of whiskey from schooner Favorite, sunk in Lake Erie in 1839. [Montreal Herald]

p.6 The Yacht Upset - off Point Frederick with four men aboard; picked up by government tug engaged in attending the dredge at the foot of Princess Street.

Had Considerable Trouble - The steamer Toronto had a lively experience at Prescott yesterday, where she encountered a gale of wind with a heavy sea. So strong was the wind that the greatest difficulty was experienced in turning the steamer around, her bow repeatedly turned back by the force of the gale. It was feared that the big steamer would be injured before she could be got around but an accident was averted.
