The schr. Elgin has been chartered to load barley at Napanee for Oswego at 2 1/2 cents.

The sloop Lorraine is loading 2,000 bushels of barley at Eilbeck's for Prescott.

The steamer Crusoe took the Ida's place on the Rideau Canal route this morning.

Eight hundred and fifty barrels of apples have been shipped per G.T.R. yesterday to Montreal.

The tug Thompson arrived with the schrs. Gaskin and Glenora from Charlotte this morning. The schooners carry 2,200 tons of coal. Fifty-five tons were discharged here and the balance was taken on to Brockville for use by the G.T.R. and C.P.R. trains.

The prop. Lake Ontario reached here this morning, and the captain speaks glowingly of the exciting experience he recently had upon the lake.
