p.3 Gananoque, Oct. 29th - ....The steamer Missisquoi makes her last trip of the season to Kingston, today, after she will be tied up at Rockport for the winter.

According to the report received in marine circles here, the trouble was caused by a portion of the canal bank being washed away. Early last evening, a report was received which stated that the water in the canal had been lowered, that the necessary repairs had been completed, and that it was expected that vessels could be put through the locks during the night.
