The schr. Philo Bennett cleared last evening for Oswego with 7,000 bushels of barley at 2 1/2 cents.

The steamer Corsican passed down the river today; the Spartan goes down tomorrow. Both are on their last trips.

Messrs. Tett Bros., of Bedford Mills, have the finest fleet of vessels in the Rideau Canal. The steambarges and consorts are now engaged in carrying ties and lumber to Kingston or Cape Vincent. Messrs. Tett have the best mills on the canal.

Capt. Yott, of the schr. O.S. Storrs, denies that his cook attempted to commit suicide. The occurrence in Oswego harbour was an accident, the lady falling out of a punt through the awkwardness of a boy who undertook to put her on the vessel. She did not jump overboard at Trenton on any trip of the schooner during the past four months.
