It now turns out that the chain and anchor lost from the steambarge N.D. Marshall early in the season is still lying somewhere on the bottom of the river in the vicinity of Big Island. The crew of the steamer Bigelow, and Frank Keating of Chicago, chief engineer of the company owning the Marshall, thought they had secured the chain by grappling and Diver Delaney, of Ogdensburg, was sent for. The diver went down and found that the grappler had caught on a ledge of rock. He also searched on the bottom in fifty feet of water, but could not find the missing articles. A standing reward of $100 is made to the party or parties who can locate the chain.

The steamer Hamilton went west on Friday morning.

The steamer Westport cleared up the Rideau on Friday, after returning from Cape Vincent, N.Y., where she unloaded lumber from Ottawa.
