Passed Through the Canal for Kingston: sch. Mediterranean, Toledo, wheat.

The sch. Jessie Macdonald came in light from Charlotte, and is now loading lumber at the foot of Clarence Street.

Freight on wheat from Detroit to Kingston is quoted at 7 to 7 1/2 cents, from Toledo 7 cents on corn, and 7 1/2 cents on wheat.

Arrivals at Swifts - steamers Prussia, from Chicago; Cuba from Ogdensburg; Armenia, from Toronto; Spartan, from Montreal.

The prop Prussia passed down this morning with a party of excursionists from Port Dalhousie and St. Catharines bound for Montreal.

Some people may imagine that Hon. Mr. Bowell has not been informed on the effect of the imposition of duty on damaged grain, but such is not the case. Voluminous correspondence has passed between him and a Kingston gentleman, some letters being written while Parliament was in session.

The arrivals for the M.T. Co. are; schrs. George C. Finney, Chicago, 20,000 bush wheat; Octavia, Oswego, 127 tons coal; Julia, Toronto 7647 bush wheat; L. Bentley, Port Dalhousie, 29,156 bush wheat; Manzanilla, Chicago, 22, 229 bush corn; Erie Stewart, Toledo, 17,000 bush wheat. The prop. Prussia, Chicago, lightened 4030 bush wheat, and the prop Scotia, Chicago, 5150 bush wheat.

The sch. Albion, Toledo 23,l500 bush wheat; Kate Eccles, Port Dalhousie 8773 bush corn; Antelope, Toledo, 23,500 bush wheat; Garibaldi, Toledo, 12,750 bush corn; Pierrepont, Toledo, 9000 bush wheat; Oliver, Toronto 72000 bush corn; Speedwell, Toronto, 14,600 bush corn; Mary Lyon, Toledo, 19,000 bush wheat; E.R. Williams, Toledo, 21,500 bush corn, arrived yesterday and this morning.

Yesterday the following vessels arrived for the Collinsby Rafting Co.: sch. Gulnair, Chicago, 383 pieces walnut, 30 pieces pine; M.C. Upper, Toledo, 244 pieces oak; Cavalier, Sheboygan, 181 pieces pine; Florida, Detroit, 273 pieces oak; A. Craig, Toledo, 69 pieces oak, 118 pieces ash and 11 pieces ash. The tug Edsall, from Port Dalhousie, also arrived with 1930 pieces pine and 51 pieces oak. The whole will be rafted and shipped to Quebec.

Steamer Accident - An accident happened to the steamer Corinthian yesterday which hindered the vessel from proceeding to Montreal. When a short distance below Scarboro' Heights the cross-head at the beam of the engine broke. It was seen at once that the passage could not be continued. The break was strengthened by some gear, and the Corinthian steamed slowly back to Toronto. The Globe says it may recquire a couple of days to repair the break, and it will cause a delay of one day in the movements of the passengers. There was no uneasiness caused among those on board by the mishap. The passengers were landed, and such of them as wished were forwarded by the Grand Trunk to their respective destinations.

A Heavy Surplus - Yesterday, as our readers are aware, the damaged part of the cargo of the sch. Magdala was sold by auction. After the expenses were paid the profits were $11.64, applied to the owner's accounts. Had Capt. Taylor (not Capt. Allen as stated) accepted the usual fee for making the survey only $1.64 would have been realized.

Wind Wafts - Application has been made for the incorporation of the Deseronto Navigation Co., with headquarters at Mill Point.
