The schooner Bavaria has cleared for Port Huron, the Siberia and Prussia for Toledo. They went up light and will load timber for Garden Island.

The steam barge Anglin has appeared in a new coat of paint and looking as pretty as an ugly barge possible can. She goes to Howe Island to load hay for Ogdensburg.

The str. Chieftain has left for Toledo with the schrs. Saxon and Denmark, the last of Calvin & Sons' timber fleet. The vessels will be towed the round trip.

p. Kilcaulay, engineer of the Pilgrim last season is engineer of the Deseronto this year. Mr. Wm. Sullivan, of Kingston, is the engineer of Pilgrim this season.

The coasting regulations published in the Whig a few days ago, have caused some excitement in marine circles. The reporting of Canadian vessels inwards and outwards will entail more trouble than the cargo books did. The new system is but an old measure rehashed. The reporting of coastal vessels was done twenty years ago.

p.3 Personal Mention - G.W.H. Comer to be purser on Corinthian this year, was on Spartan.
