Marine Notes.

The following are the arrivals since our last report:

Schr. Pilot, Fairhaven, 68 tons coal.

Schr. Fabiola, Toronto, 2,263 bu. wheat.

Schr. Camanche, Milwaukee, 18,000 bu. wheat.

Prop. Ocean, Chicago, 4,600 bu. wheat.

Prop. D.R. Van Allen, Chicago, 3,600 cubic ft. walnut timber.

Prop. City of Montreal, Toronto, 5,860 bush. corn.

Work Lost To Kingston - The decision has been reached that the steamship Campana must go to Port Dalhousie to be re-united and refitted for service this fall. Mr. Power's offer could not be accepted because the owner of the craft was not disposed to grant the time which he required in order to do the work. Mr. Smith, of Toronto, the owner of the steamer, left for Morrisburg last night, and is expected to reach here with the bow of the boat tomorrow, when the two pieces will leave in tow of three tugs for Port Dalhousie. Had the contract been undertaken in Kingston the city would have got the benefit of an expenditure of about $10,000.

Whats The News? - crowds visiting stern of Campana, at Gunn's wharf.

A Sea Serpent's Pranks - on Rideau Canal.

Decrease In Shipments - grain transhipments way down.

Yacht Atalanta - to be launched.

Harbor Beacon - As we understood it the gov't some time ago promised to supply a storm signal, to be used in connection with the Meteorological Department. We hope the promise will be speedily filled.
