John Hazlett, general manager of the Lake Ontario Navigation company, is here looking for quarters for the steamer Argyle, which will soon complete its season.

The steamer Rideau Queen is in Davis' dry dock for repairs to her wheel. She is to make a private trip down the St. Lawrence and up the Ottawa and Rideau rivers with a Toronto party.

p.8 In Port Today - The steamer Hamilton arrived at Swift's wharf about 1:30 o'clock this afternoon. She was very late as her schedule time for reaching Kingston was Tuesday last. The cause of the delay was the accident to the Canada Atlantic bridge at Cornwall. A large freighter collided with the abutments tumbling the bridge into a total wreck. The railway company held the propeller for a $10,000 seizure. The steamer Hamilton was about three lengths behind the freighter at the time, but had slowed down at the approach to the bridge, and thus escaped injury.
