p.1 Taken Off The Route - steamer Quebec, of R. & O. N. company, overhauled last winter and new deck added, taken off route, rolling too much, to get extensive alterations.



The steamer Cayuga is still in the dry dock for repairs.

The schooner Acacia will clear for Fairhaven to load coal for Crawford's.

The steamer America carried 500 people on the excursion to Clayton, N.Y., last night. The excursionists report a fine trip.

The steamyacht Albani is still at large. The latest point at which it is alleged to have been seen was Morristown, opposite Brockville.

M.T. Co.: The steamer Bothnia arrived light from Montreal, on her way to Oswego to load coal; the tug Thomson arrived from Montreal with one pulpwood barge.

Swift's: steamer Rideau Queen for Ottawa; steamer Belleville west yesterday; steamer Picton west today; steamer City of Montreal west this morning; steamer Toronto down and up; steamer North King, from Charlotte.

To Raise The Resolute.

The barge Resolute, which was wrecked off the Island shore last fall, is to be raised, and the contract for the work will be let by Haney & Miller, her owners, in about ten days. She is sunk in about thirty-six feet of water, there being about twenty-two feet of water above her decks. The work will likely be done by the Reid Wrecking company, of Port Huron, which concern is at present raising the dredge Sir Wilfred, sunk in the lake, off Port Hope.

More Boats Than Cargoes.

At Cleveland, boats are more plentiful than cargoes in the coal and grain trades and the feeling is easy. Duluth shippers have chartered capacity to move 300,000 bushels at a cent a bushel to Buffalo. Cleveland owners will not take grain at that figure, and the steamer Paine is being brought down light from Fort William to load coal. There is a large number of vessels waiting at the coal docks, and there will be much delay in that trade.

Notices To The Steamboats.

Harbor Master McCammon has served on all captains of steamboats coming into this port, notices, drawing their attention to the by-law regarding whistling in the harbor. A couple of boat captains have been using their whistles in a scandalous manner, to the annoyance of the people. If they do not stop, the harbor master will summon them before the police magistrate. However, it is not likely that the annoyance will continue.

p.3 Gave Him A Jewel - Oddfellows remember 25 years of service, presentation at home - he is not well enough to attend at lodge rooms;
