p.4 Gananoque, Oct. 26th - ....The coal schooner Clara, which has been unloading at Robertson's coal sheds during the past week, pulled out of Gananoque river on Saturday for Oswego. The coal schooner Briton pulled into Gananoque on Saturday morning.



The smoke of the past few days has been causing a great deal of trouble to navigation. The steamer Alexandria, which was due from Montreal on Friday night, only left Montreal at midnight, Sunday, having been held up by the smoke. The steambarge Navajo, which left here on Friday night, for Montreal, was reported to be just at Prescott, on Sunday morning. There is considerable freight to be taken these days, and the delay of the Alexandria has caused merchants a great deal of inconvenience.

The steamer Simla arrived from Fort William, Monday morning, with 35,000 bushels of wheat for Richardsons' elevator.

The tug Sir John, of Pelee Island, was here today on the way to Quebec.

Swift's: steamer Belleville down this morning; steamer Dundurn up this afternoon; schooner Cornelia from Oswego with coal; steamer Aletha from bay points.

M.T. Co.'s elevator: The tug Bartlett, from Montreal, with three barges, cleared for Montreal with four barges; steamer Iroquois, from Fort William, with 80,000 bushels of wheat.

News of the World - The steamer Iroquois, from Little Current, ran on a rock near Spanish Mills and was burned. The crew and passengers were rescued but lost everything, only three bags of mail being saved.
