p.1 Jones Falls - The last shipment of cheese was made by the str. Ida to Kingston. Tug Edmond and her barges passed through the locks here about the 18th inst., and found much difficulty, as the canal was frozen over in many places. Our lockmaster, Robert Battin, is out with his full staff of men, getting everything in place for winter, as no more boats are expected here this season.



The propeller Cuba, which sank opposite Alexandria Bay recently, was raised today. It is expected that she will be taken to Ogdensburg for repairs. Her forefoot is badly broken, but she is otherwise in good condition. Her hull was insured with the Western Insurance Company, and her cargo in the Royal Canadian for $7,500. About half of the cargo (30,000 bushels of barley) has been saved and sent to the consignees. The damaged portion has not yet been sold.

Mr. Fitzgerald, American wrecker, had charge of the raising of the Cuba, and was ably assisted by Capt. John Donnelly, of this city.

Personal Mention - On Monday evening the crew of the str. Hero will pay their respects to Capt. Craig, who removes to the American side at the close of the season.


The schr. Wm. Elgin is at Trenton taking in barley for Oswego.

The prop. Celtic cleared for Hamilton this morning.

The schr. Annie Falconer has gone into winter quarters at Walkerville.

The report that the schr. Ed. Hanlan is ashore at Weller's Bay is denied.

The schrs. Singapore and H. Dudley are loading barley for Richardson & Son.

Donnelly Bros. have contracted to raise the schr. Julia, ashore at Consecon.

The str. Hastings will arrive tonight from Prescott and proceed to the assistance of the schr. Julia, ashore at Consecon.

The schr. White Oak is loading barley at Napanee, and the schr. Oliver Mowat at Bath. Rate on grain from bay ports to Oswego, 3 1/2 cents.
