M.T. company wharf: tug Glide from Cape Vincent light; tug Bronson cleared down with two grain-laden barges.

Swift's wharf: steamer Toronto down and up; steamer Caspian from Charlotte; steamer Hamilton down tonight.

The steamer Ramona goes into Davis' dry dock this afternoon to have her wheel repaired. The schooner Annandale enters tomorrow.

Several boats from Perth and Smith's Falls are likely to come up this fall for extensive repairs at Davis' ship yard, which will have a busy fall and winter.

The body found floating in the St. Lawrence at Massena has been identified as that of Mathias Charpentier, one of the two sailors of the tug Nellie Reid, drowned on August 7th.

The steamer Caspian will likely spend the winter in drydock here and be lengthened twenty-five feet at the bow. This increased length would improve her speed as well as her appearance.

Craig's wharf: steamer Niagara from South Bay; steamer Waupoos from Waupoos; yacht Castanet from Alexandria Bay; yacht Wherenow from Thousand Island Park; steamer Alexandria up tonight.

The steamyacht Palmedo, of Indianapolis, has been in Davis' dry dock for repairs. It struck a rock in the Rideau and partly filled. The Davis' company put in a new keel and some planking, and otherwise repaired her. The Palmedo leaves for Georgian Bay.

p.4 Found A Body - Claude Cole found the remains of a man, on the south side of Main Ducks Island. The trunk of the body alone remained, the legs and head being gone. It is thought that it may be one of those drowned from the steamer Hall, wrecked two years ago.

p.6 Wins The Series - Iroquois succeeds in retaining cup.
