Half a dozen vessels are storm bound at Macdonald's Cove.

The steamer Ida will in future run between Kingston, Smith's Falls and Merrickville.

The schr. Singapore has been chartered by Eilbeck to carry 13,000 bushels of barley to Oswego.

Eleven hundred bushels of grain arrived by the Princess Louise from Gananoque during yesterday and today.

H. Davis is building a very fine hull for a 40 ft. steam yacht, for Gananoque parties, calculated to be propelled by a coal oil engine of 4 H.P.

The schr. Herbert Dudley arrived this morning from Gananoque, where she has loaded 12,600 bushels of barley. She is now loading 8,000 bushels of the same grain at Richardson's for Oswego.

While entering Oswego harbor the schr. Jessie Drummond struck her stern and port quarter on the east breakwater. The side was cut down nearly to the water's edge.

The schr. Speedwell, bound for Ogdensburg with barley, ran too close to Four Mile Point this morning and could not get out. She signalled a tug, and the steamer Hastings went to her assistance.

Capt. Gaskin says that the M.T. Co. have the best docks in the country. The extensions made recently enabled them to accommodate 60 vessels at one time, and no matter how fiercely the wind blows they are perfectly safe.
