The D.M. Foster took a cargo of stone here for Toronto.

The Laura will carry corn from Port Dalhousie to Kingston at 2 cents.

The str. Norseman commenced running today. She will be again commanded by Capt. Sherwood.

Chicago grain freights are steady and unchanged, although some agents report a more healthy feeling. Charters for corn have been made at 5 cents to Buffalo, and 8 1/4 cents to Kingston.

It is thought the schr. David Andrews, which ran ashore near Oswego, can be saved. She is not hard on, and has not pounded. She is insured, and so is her cargo.

The arrivals reported at Port Colborne today are: schr. Maggie McKee, from Toledo, with wheat for Montreal; the schr. Maize, from Toledo, 18,000 bushels corn for Ogdensburg. Both cargoes are to be transferred to the Welland Railway.

The Sweepstakes sailed on Tuesday with wheat for Kingston, but early yesterday morning split her staysail and jib in a squall. Capt. Thomas tried to make Port Hope, but the damaged canvas prevented him, and he was compelled to put back, reaching Toronto about 2 in the afternoon.

Stealing Wood - boys caught stealing wood from M.T. Co. barge by Capt. Gaskin.

Accident - The Maud this afternoon, while on the way from Cape Vincent, ran upon Horseshoe Island and stuck there. The tug Hiram Calvin went to her assistance about 2 o'clock and succeeded in hauling her off. The Maud was little damaged. The Pierrepont took her place on the Cape Vincent route, carrying a big load of passengers and freight.
