Raft For Quebec - A raft of pine timber left Garden Island last night for Quebec. This may be the last to go down this season. The Calvin company has a large amount of oak on hand, but the price has fallen so low on account of over production that the oak is likely to be kept here all winter. This oak comes from Virginia, whence it goes by rail to Toledo, and then to Kingston by water.

New York's Big Crowd - took 400 excursionists to Ogdensburg; increased speed means trip to Ogdensburg takes an hour less.

p.6 Carpenters were at work this afternoon constructing the shade deck on the steamer Thomas Fawcett. The new deck will greatly improve the appearance of the ferry boat and will prove a good screen to passengers from sun and weather. The steamer carries her first excursion this evening to Fairfield Point, from Kingston, Portsmouth and Collins Bay.
