p.1 Down In Gananoque - Sept. 24th - ....The coal schooner Horace Taber arrived Wednesday and is now unloading her cargo at Taylor & Green's coal sheds. The steamer Missisquoi took out quite a large number for Ogdensburg fair yesterday morning. The smoke and fog, however, delayed her leaving from 7:30 until 8:30, when the breeze had sufficiently scattered the smoke as to render it possible to proceed...



The fog of last night again held the steamer America at Cape Vincent, the vessel being unable to make the trip.

The steamers Fairmount and Westmount, grain laden, have cleared from Fort William on the way to the M.T. company.

The schooner Ford River is at Richardsons', loading feldspar for Charlotte. This will probably be the last load to go over this season.

Swift's: steamer Dundurn up Wednesday afternoon, three days late; steamer Aletha from bay points today; steamer Rideau King did not arrive from Ottawa until today, about eighteen hours late; steamer Belleville down today, one day late. Smoke and fog are keeping the boats about a day and a half late on all routes.

p.3 News of the World - The steamer Iron King ran on Grecian Shoal, south of Colchester, Ont., during a heavy fog. She is bound up, loaded with salt. The weather is favorable.
