BOATING COMMENCES ON THE RIVER;

HIGH WATER APPRECIATED.

(part)

Abram Shaw, Kingston, formerly an inspector in the customs service, was here yesterday making an official marine measurement of the tug Nama, owned by Capt. James H. Simpson, Elizabethtown.

The steambarge Isabella H., owned by Captain A.R. Hinckley, passed west last evening, after spending the winter in the Cornwall Canal.

The lights on Block House Island park were lighted for the first time this season last evening.

The barge F.A. Georger will leave here the latter part of this week or early next week for Oswego, N.Y., on the first trip of the season. The Georger has been lying at the wharf of its owners, the Central Canada Coal Co. since navigation closed last year and has undergone considerable improvement at a cost of about $4,000. The stem has been strengthened as well as the deck, and a large amount of heavy planking has been placed in the sides of the vessel. Captain Simeon LeBoeuf, 120 Water street west, will be in charge of the vessel again this summer.

The steel steamer Adrien Iselin, of the George Hall fleet, one of the finest freighters in the St. Lawrence service, has succeeded in releasing herself from a shoal in the straits of Mackinac, where she went aground on her maiden trip of the season. The Iselin is now in dry-dock at Milwaukee undergoing repairs. Her crew is composed of Ogdensburg sailors.
