The schr. Hammond is shelved at Cape Vincent for the winter.

The steam barge Reliance has taken a cargo of lumber to Oswego. Returning she comes to the city to lay up.

The tug Traveller, after receiving all necessary repairs, was launched this forenoon. This afternoon the boiler was placed in her.

The schr. Camanche, which was sunk in the Welland Canal, is undergoing repairs. She is in bad shape generally, and it will cost some $5,000 to get her in good condition.

The schr. Wm. Elgin has been over a week endeavouring to reach Oswego with a cargo of rye from Brockville. She is lying at anchor here, having split her sail in a recent gale.

The steamer Norseman arrived here at 11 o'clock from Port Hope. During the night she lay at Presque Isle, leaving there at 3:30 o'clock. She will be repaired at Portsmouth. The leak is amidship.

Mr. James Swift has upwards of 2,000 tons of coal on the way to this port from Charlotte and Oswego. He purchased the cargo of the Erie Belle. The Eliza Quinlan has arrived with another cargo from Oswego.

Launch At Garden Island - The repairs to the steamer Traveller being completed she was successfully launched this morning. The trim little craft apparently looked neater and stauncher in the water than ever. A few years ago a launch on Friday was of rare occurrence.
