p.3 In Favor Of Plaintiffs - Sandwich, April 2nd - Judge Hodgins, of the admiralty court, gave a decision in favor of the plaintiffs in the suit of the Dunbar and Sullivan Dredging company, who are working on the channel improvements at Amherstburg, against the steamer Milwaukee, for $3,000 damages. The Milwaukee became entangled in an old anchor chain picked up on the bottom. One of the dredging company's scows was called to the rescue, and while working on the tangle, was run down by the Milwaukee.

Incidents of the Day - Capt. John Bernard, of the schooner Kitchen, is here, looking after the fitting out of the vessel.

p.7 Tenders For Steamer Picton - No satisfactory offer has as yet been made, for the steamer Picton, of the R. & O. line, partially destroyed by fire last fall. Tenders were called for by Lloyd's agent. Three tenders were received, that of the Canadian Metal company for $3,000 being the highest. The other tenders were the R. & O. company and a party of vesselmen, who are anxious to get the boat for the north shore route. The tenders will be submitted by the Underwriters Association, but it is understood that none are satisfactory.

p.8 Opening of Navigation - coming soon at Kingston.
