p.1 The Worts Yacht - Oakville, June 3rd - The Worts yacht, built by Capt. Andrew here as a challenge for the Canada cup, was launched, this afternoon, at three o'clock. The design of the boat was pleasing to the eyes of the experts, who viewed her carefully before the launch.



Craig's wharf: steamer Alexandria up last evening.

Crawford's wharf: schooner Annandale cleared for Oswego.

Swift's wharf: steamers Hamilton, up last night; Toronto down this morning; Rideau King from Ottawa this evening.

At Brockville wharf yesterday the paddle box of the steamer Kingston was damaged by collision with the boom of a schooner.

The steamer Kingston was delayed over half an hour at Clayton yesterday morning, because the U.S. customs officer was not to be found.

M.T. company wharf: tug Emerson, from Charlotte and Oswego with three coal laden barges, and cleared down with those and three grain-laden barges.



Mrs. John Bartley, corner of Main and Fourth streets, received the following telegram on Thursday morning, dated:

Sault Ste. Marie, June 1st.

Charles J. Bartley fell overboard off steamer W.D. Rees and drowned Wednesday, 6 a.m., one mile north of Devil's Island, on Lake Superior. Body not found.

(Signed) Capt. E.R. Morton.

The deceased was a brother of John Bartley, Deseronto, and a son of Captain John Bartley, North Fredericksburg. He was about twenty-two years of age, and a bachelor, and had been sailing for the past two years. He joined the steamer W.D. Rees, about the end of March. He is survived by his father, brothers John, Edward, Enoch and two sisters, Margaret at home and Mrs. John Galt, Fredericksburg.

To add to the trouble under which the family is suffering, John Bartley's valise came home by express from Caledonia, on Thursday afternoon, without explanation of any kind, and no letter has been received from him in regard to it. He was one of the crew of the steamer Passadena. [Deseronto Tribune]



Between Canadian and U.S. Governments.

Windsor, June 3rd - It is not unlikely that there may be correspondence between Canadian and United States governments over the alleged action of contractors, dredging the new channel in Lake St. Clair, in dumping the mud into Canadian waters, where, it is claimed, by masters of boats running between Windsor and Detroit, Chatham and Wallaceburg, it is making the route very dangerous. The Canadian government may have to dredge a new channel for their coastwise traffic. A strong protest will be filed with the Dominion government with a request that the matter be taken up at once with the United States government.
