The Watertown was launched this morning and looks fine. As an excursion boat she cannot be excelled.

The schr. Canadian, Capt. Blanchard, stone-laden, from Kingston to Charlotte, ran into Oswego harbour on Sunday morning.

The schr. Mary Ann Lydon, light, bound from Kingston to Port Hope, was compelled to run into Oswego during the late storm.

The rates on barley from the Bay of Quinte to Oswego are quoted at 2 1/2 cents but a Toronto firm reports a charter at 2 cents, with the name of the vessel not given.

The schr. Belle was capsized in Big Bay while sailing from Mill Point to Belleville. She was loaded with shingles and lumber, and had on board her owner, Capt. Smith, and a crew of two. They escaped in the small boat.

The Canadian underwriters have, at a meeting of the representatives of the leading companies on Friday, determined to make a new classification of Canadian vessels, and Capt. Taylor, the Canadian Inspector, was authorized to proceed to Buffalo and confer with the Lloyd agent there.
