p.1 Had To Run Back - Port Dalhousie, Nov. 20th - The steambarge Resolute and consort, which left here last night, had to run back here for shelter this forenoon. This is the second time the steamer had to run back here since Saturday evening.

Derelict Brought In - Sarnia, Ont., Nov. 20th - The capsized schooner Antelope, found floating in Lake Huron, and a menace to navigation, has been found and brought here. The tug Reid found the derelict five miles north-west of Point Clark, on the Canadian shore, and about twenty miles north of Goderich. The tug left Sarnia, yesterday, to search for the Antelope, having on board a Mr. Sullivan of Toronto, agent for the owner, A.J. Foster. Recent north-westerly winds had blown the derelict further to eastward than expected.

p.4 Safety of the St. Lawrence - editorial - American newspapers cite dangers in order to promote Erie Canal.

The sloop Granger is loading slag at the Locomotive Works.

The schooner M.A. Lydon cleared for Charlotte to load coal for Anglin's.

The new boat which is to be built by the Canadian Shipbuilding company for the R. & O. Navigation company, will be a twin screw boat, and considerably larger than the present rapid boats. The special features will be the larger promenade deck and a much better view of the rapids will be obtained. The dining room will be much larger than on the present boats, and the seating capacity will be doubled. She will have a large number of staterooms and will be fitted with half a dozen parlor rooms and baths. She will be a much faster boat than any now running, and will be ready for service next summer on the Montreal and Prescott route.

p.8 Day's Episodes - About two-thirds of the cargo of peas has been removed from the schooner Highland Beauty, which sank two weeks ago at Cape Vincent. The vessel is practically a total wreck.
