p.2 Board of Works - Capt. William Lesslie had completed O'Kill St. sewer.


The tug Sir John arrived here from Toronto on the way to Montreal.

The steamer Jessie Bain, in commission on the upper lakes all summer, will come to Kingston to be laid up for the winter.

The steamer Beaverton, which discharged a cargo of grain at Richardsons' elevator, cleared today for Hamilton to load freight for Fort William.

M.T. Co.'s elevator: The steamer Simla arrived from Fort William with 48,000 bushels of wheat; the tugs Emerson and Mary P. Hall arrived from Montreal with three barges each, both cleared for Montreal with three grain-laden barges each.

A number of schooners, tied up here for over a week, owing to a storm on the lake, were able to clear today. The schooners Bertha Kalkins, Tradewind, Kitchen and Winnie Wing cleared for Oswego and the schooner Cornelia cleared for Sodus.

Swift's: steamer Aletha down and up today; schooner Cornelia cleared for Oswego for coal; schooner J.B. Kitchen cleared for Sodus to load coal; steamer Belleville due up Saturday on last trip of the season. She will lay up at Toronto.

The United States hydrographic office gives notice that a submerged rock three or four feet in diameter, with seven feet of water over it and depths of fourteen feet around, lies in the western entrance to Cape Vincent harbor, ten feet westward of a line connecting the lighthouse on the western end of the breakwater and the green range light on the rock pile dock, 445 feet from the breakwater light and 190 feet from the end of the dock. The rock is close to the track of vessels passing from the railroad dock to the river through the western entrance to the harbor.

The schooners Jamieson and Ford River, the former loaded with coal for Anglin's, and the latter for Sowards, arrived in port, yesterday afternoon, from Oswego, making the trip across in six hours, remarkably good time for this season of the year. The schooners managed to get away just at the time all the others were tied up here. Capt. Chauncey Daryeau has charge of the Ford River, looked upon as one of the best sailing vessels in port, and his son, Capt. Henry Daryeau, is in command of the Jamieson, also very speedy. Both schooners cleared for Oswego at the same time, and pulled into the Kingston harbor together.

p.8 Schooner Jamieson Sold - Capt. Henry Daryeau today sold the schooner Jamieson to Capt. McCullough, of Napanee. The Jamieson, which arrived yesterday with a cargo of coal, will be taken to Napanee as soon as the cargo is discharged.

The schooner Ford River will be laid up for the season.

The steamer Simla will clear for Charlotte to load coal for Garden Island.
