p.1 Fog Delayed Steamers -

p.2 Barges In Collision (I.M.C.) - barge Huron sank near Iroquois; Keewatin.

The Calvin and Donnelly wrecking companies, which have been working in conjunction, in endeavoring to release the steamer Britannic, which is stranded at Weaver's Point, below Morrisburg, have given up their present plan of operations, and their steamers have returned to the city. In consultation with the owners of the coal steamer, it has been decided to sink a barge, with stone, above her, and try to release her in that way. The water has receded over a foot, owing to the north and east winds, which interfered seriously with trying to pull her off with cables.
