p.1 Gananoque, Oct. 1st - ....Frank Seymour left for Belleville on Thursday, to join the crew of the schooner Britton, which has been laid up there for some weeks past.



While on his rounds, Peter Mitchell, night watchman on the steamer Keystorm, which is in the Kingston dry dock, fell down the hatchway of the vessel, about two o'clock Saturday morning. A hurried call was sent for Corbett's ambulance and Dr. Keyes, and the injured man was removed to the Hotel Dieu. An examination there showed, beyond the fact that he was severely shaken up, there were no serious injuries. He had a miraculous escape, for had he fallen on his head he would have been killed instantly. The boat is built of steel, and the drop is twenty feet.



The steamer Missisquoi was up from Gananoque today.

The steamer Alexandria passed up from Montreal last night.

The schooner Julia B. Merrill cleared for Garden Island to ship a foremast.
