The schrs. Annandale and Forest Queen have arrived and stripped.

The schr. Eureka has arrived, light, from Charlotte, and will probably load grain at Adolphustown.

The schr. Nellie Sherwood, light, from Sodus, has gone down to Rudd's to load hay for Clayton.

Capt. Scott, of the prop. Scotia, has returned to the city. He has had a most successful season. His propeller is laid up at St. Catharines.

The str. Norseman has been hauled out on the ways at Portsmouth. Endeavors will be made to have her repairs completed before the harbor freezes over, so that she may be replaced by the str. Picton.

Last week the str. Armenia failed to report at Brockville and was seized at Gananoque by the Customs official and tied up. The Captain deposited $100 in cash and gave bonds for $600 more, and was allowed to proceed. The matter has been referred to the Department at Ottawa.

The strs. Peerless and Ontario are laid up for the season. The Ontario is to be overhauled during the winter, so as to better adapt her for canal navigation. She is to be widened by having the upper sides extended to below the water line, and thus cause her to draw less water.

The str. Flower City was towed down to Washington Island on Saturday and anchored in Goose Bay. During the night she sprang a leak and was found in a sinking condition. A crew towed her ashore on the north side of the island, where she lay in shallow water until she was hauled out. She will be rebuilt and 40 feet added to her length.
