p.2 Attack On Ald. Craig - John Donnelly was present to interview the committee regarding the lease of the waterworks wharf. He had written the chairman accepting the ($200 contract offer ?) (very hard to read) He asked the committee to reconsider its decision requiring the West street slip to be kept clear of (vessels ?) and offered to keep his vessels out of it from June 15th to Sept. 15th and from Dec. 15th to April 15th. Mr. Donnelly said he thought that his offer regarding the slip would cover any objections by small boat owners. To separate their boats would put them to the extra expense of engaging another watchman.

After due consideration of the matter it was decided to recommend to council that the Donnelly company keep the slip free of lay up vessels from June 1st to Oct. 1st and from December 15th to April 15th. This will be satisfactory to the company and the lease will now be drawn.


The Schooner Lydon Had It's Lights Burning.

Kingston, Nov. 2nd - To The Editor:

I see by yesterday's Whig that the steamer Rosedale's captain said that he had almost a collision with a schooner beating round the harbor without lights. Now the schooner M.A. Lydon was the only one beating in and it must have been her he referred to, but we had our lights burning all right. The captain of the steamer must be color-blind not to see them. If his crew had been keeping a good look-out, they could have seen us a good mile off, as the weather was so clear.

W. PATTERSON, Master of the schooner Lydon.
