Made A Settlement.

Capt. Randall, of the steambarge Randall, which collided with George H. Hammond's yacht, Vonieta, a few days ago, had a conference with Mr. Hammond, and made a satisfactory settlement. The yacht has been repaired and fitted out, and will be launched in a few days.

p.3 Steamer Belleville Detained - The steamer Belleville was detained in the Lachine canal for several hours, owing to a slight mishap to her propelling machinery, and was, therefore, unable to leave Montreal on scheduled time. As a result, she ran foul of the Sunday clearing law and was unable to clear until Monday morning. The company decided to cancel this week's trip altogether, and the Belleville will remain in Montreal until she is due to sail from that port on her next regular trip.
