The schr. W.T. Greenwood has left for Cobourg, and the Flora Carveth for Port Hope.

The water is rising very slowly in Toronto harbor, and is now five inches lower than at the same date last year.

The schr. B.W. Folger has left for Charlottte, laden with iron ore. The Annie M. Foster is loading ore in the same port.

The schr. Belle of Hamilton came up the river this morning. She is loaded with lumber. She anchored out in the lake.

Arrivals at Garden Island: Schrs. D.M. Foster, with stones, from Toronto; Denmark, pine timber from the same place.

The schr. Jessie Macdonald arrived last night from Brighton. She will be commanded by Capt. Blanchard, of Toronto. She loads ore for Charlotte.

The steamer Clara Louise, Gananoque, has been sold to a Mr. Jarvis, of Hamilton. She will probably be used as a passenger and tow boat on Burlington Bay.

The new steamer, which has been built at Wolfe Island, for the Kingston and Perth route, is receiving her boilers and machinery at the Kingston foundry wharf.

The Oswego Belle of last year will be the Emerald this season. Last year she was badly injured by being cut up by the ice. She is now sheeted with iron. Capt. James Foote will command her this season.

South Bay is now clear of ice, and the schr. Huron cleared yesterday morning for Charlotte with a cargo of iron ore from Kingston, loaded last fall. She was the first schooner to leave that port this season.

p.3 Personal Mention - The steamers Corsican and Algerian had steam up today; will make trial trips next week.
