p.1 Result of Enquiry - Ottawa, Aug. 23rd - "The result of the investigation into the stranding of the steamer Argyle, will be announced, in court, tomorrow," so said Deputy Minister of Marine Gourdeau today. He said he would give out nothing previous to the announcement in court.



Craig's wharf: propeller Persia up this morning; yacht Castanet from Alexandria Bay; yacht Wherenow from T.I. Park.

Swift's wharf: steamers Belleville down tonight; Rideau Queen from Ottawa; Hamilton up this morning; Kingston down and up; North King from Charlotte.

The Picton Gazette says two years ago the steamer Niagara ran on Irvine Hicks' wharf at South Bay and damaged it so that it had to be rebuilt, costing over $200. It had only been rebuilt this summer. When the Niagara came in last Thursday she ran on it again and did about $50 damage; as the company has never paid for any loss Mr. Hicks has sustained they will have to settle or a lawsuit will be entered at once.

p.3 Looped the Loop - by canoe down the Rideau, up the St. Lawrence. (2 columns)

p.6 The lighthouse at the False Ducks was erected in 1833, and the salary of the keeper of the same was fixed by act of parliament in 1835, at 75 pds. per annum.
