The schrs. L.D. Bullock and Suffell bring coal to Kingston from Oswego.

The barge Otonabee has arrived from Noble's Bay with 125 tons of phosphate.

The prop. Persia was successfully pulled off the Ducks by the tug. The sloop Vision was used as a lighter. No damage.

The yacht Viking arrived in port this afternoon from Chicago and left for Montreal in tow of a tug. She is a fine craft.

The schr. Anna M. Foster was purchased this morning by Messrs. Chambers & Chadwick for $2,000. She is loading lumber from the schr. Eureka.

Last evening the schr. Eureka, with 200,000 feet of lumber, left here for Oswego, but she had hardly got beyond Swift's wharf when she capsized, spilling the lumber overboard. She was towed to an adjacent wharf where she now lies. One sailor received a ducking, but he was soon fished out. The cause of the accident was that the lumber being very dry the vessel was not down deep enough in the water to sustain the deck load, which stood some eight feet high. There was only about 13,000 feet above her average capacity on board the craft. She shipped a quantity of water by the mishap. There is no damage. The lumber is being transferred to another schooner.
