William McCammon, the harbor master, is investigating a complaint made to him, by the captain of the schooner Keewatin, unloading coal, at Swift's wharf, against the steamer Toronto. The captain claims that by coming in to the wharf, faster than the speed allows, that is at the rate of five miles an hour, the lines on the schooner Keewatin were broken. The offence is alleged to have been committed on Tuesday morning.

The harbor master states that at the opening of the season, all the passenger vessels were given instructions by him that they must not violate the speed limit, when coming into local wharfs.
