p.2 Welland Canal - Port Dalhousie, June 12th - Down: Schrs. John Magee, Milwaukee, Kingston, corn; Florida, Chicago, do; Hartford, Milwaukee, do; Typo, do; Arabia, Chicago, do; Senator Blood, do; Jamaica, do; M.J. Cummings, do.

What It Means - The masters of vessels in the Chicago and Lake Ontario trade, and the owners of these vessels, are wondering what the prosecution of Superintendent Bodwell, of the Welland Canal, means, all testifying to the fact that there was never a man in that position before him who did half so well as Mr. Bodwell did. Well, we will tell them. Mr. Bodwell was appointed by the last Administration, and the party at present in power want some excuse to remove Mr. Bodwell. [Chicago Inter-Ocean]



Charters for Kingston: Schrs. Havana, Chicago, wheat, 4 3/4 cents; schr. Belle Mitchell, wheat, Milwaukee, at same rate.

Mr. Mattoon started for Oswego, with the tug Morey and two flat scows to raise the propeller Ellsworth, which lies sunk at Stoney Island.

The propeller Armenia went ashore at night in a dense fog near Salmon Point lighthouse. She was lightened by throwing overboard between 5,000 and 6,000 bushels of corn, and got off.
