The steamer Peerless has arrived with phosphate.

Steamboat travel between Clayton and Kingston has fallen off considerably compared with that of last season.

The tug Folger passed here today enroute from Montreal to Port Stanley.

The tug Stickney has left with a dredge and two scows for Bay City, Mich.

The steamer Bell has arrived from Deseronto with a cargo of lumber and shingles for the Rathbun agency.

The steambarge Clinton and consorts Grimsby and Gibraltar arrived partially laden with railroad iron. They are taking on the balance of their cargo here en route to Thunder Bay.

The tug Wright has left for Dickenson's Landing and schr. Mary Copley, in tow of the steambarge Saxon, has cleared for Oswego to load coal for Toledo (sic).

The steam yacht Siesta is being repainted and prepared for a trip which H.H. Warner, her owner, contemplates about July 1st. The trip will probably extend as far as Lake Superior.

The steambarge W.C. Whitney, 60,000 bushels wheat, and the barge Wane, 48,000 bushels wheat, arrived from Duluth this morning. These boats left Duluth on Wednesday of last week, and arrived here this morning about 3 o'clock.

On Tuesday a heavy gale swept over Lake Michigan. During the storm the steambarge Lincoln and consort Lisgar, wheat laden from Chicago for Kingston, ran back from Big Point Sauble. The Lisgar was badly shaken up, and made considerable water. Her master noted a protest and she will probably be lightened and docked. The schooner Jamaica, corn laden from Chicago, also ran back from Sauble with her cargo shifted, but it is not thought to be damaged.
