Gananoque, July 23rd - ...The coal schooner Horace Taber cleared this morning for Oswego to load.

The local wharf and freight sheds at the station echoed to the hum of industry last evening, when a scene seldom seen at this port was witnessed. About 7:30 p.m. the steamer Niagara, of Clayton, lay at her moorings near the mouth of Gananoque river; at the cement wharf the Britannic was loading wheels; at the plank wharf the big inland freighter Dundee, Montreal to Fort William, up, was unloading shovel steel from Montreal and loading shovels for the west; next the Missisquoi was unloading a large number of passengers from her Brockville trip, while at the west end lay the government tug Alert. Out in the open lay appeared the government supply boat Reserve and scow, engaged in repainting the lighthouse in this vicinity, while further east the smoke puffs of the America on her return from her Ogdensburg trip were just coming in sight and after her the Alexandria left off and took on a large amount of merchandise.

Pith of the News - Navigation on the St. Lawrence is tied up by the breaking of the upper gates of lock 18, of the Cornwall canal, on Friday, but it is hoped to have repairs completed by Sunday.
