Steamer Purchased - Sarnia, Dec. 15th - It is learned the wrecked steamer Connaught (sic - Conemaugh ?), of the Anchor line, now lying near Point Pelee, has been purchased from the underwriters by the Reid Wrecking company, and will be stripped. The price is not known. The steamer has been on the beach since the last severe storm on Lake Erie, lying about 200 feet from the shore.



The steambarge Navajo made another trip to Howe Island and returned with a cargo of pressed hay.

Word has been received here from the superintendent of the Welland canal, stating that navigation is all right through the canal, and that any of the vessels can get through. The steamer Edmonton, on her way to Richardsons' with grain, is expected to reach the canal today.
