The schr. G.M. Case, of Oswego, has been sold to Detroit people for $14,000.

The C.P.R. steamship sections were at Prescott last night. The expedition will probably reach this city tomorrow or Monday.

The schrs. Annie Falconer and Cornelia are in port with coal from Oswego. The last named craft goes to Clayton to load grain.

The tug Edsall has arrived here. She is commissioned to assist in towing the C.P.R. steamers to Buffalo, where they will be put together.

The schrs. J.R. Benson, Augusta and J.R. Merritt have been stripped of their canvas and go into winter quarters at St. Catharines.

There are several vessels en route to Kingston with coal. The schrs. Edward Blake and Shandon have coal from Sandusky and the schr. Emerald from Cleveland.

The tug Porter and barges have gone to St. Catharines for the winter. The Captain will command a wing of the Salvation Army during the winter.

The St. Lawrence River Steamboat Company have made final arrangements for the running of a boat on the route from Cape Vincent to Alexandria Bay. A steamer resembling the Maud, but larger and speedier, will be built at Clayton during this winter.

Today John Ryan received notification that the steamer Rupert, which he chartered to take provisions to Lake Superior, had arrived at Sarnia and would proceed no further. The craft has a $2,000 charter, $1,000 of which was paid before the steamer left port.
