The schr. A. Falconer, light, left yesterday for Oswego to load coal for Toronto.
The prop. Celtic is in Hamilton, and will require to be laid up for ten days to get a new shaft put in.
Arrivals: prop. Cuba, Chicago, 6,000 bush. wheat; schr. Rutherford, Chicago, 20,150 bush. wheat.
The present season on the lakes, according to Capt. Hall, of Toronto, has been better than last year. The coal business is lively, and in grain carrying there has been a great improvement. The season opened with rates of 8 cents and 8 1/2 cents per bushel, on wheat from Duluth to Kingston. Now 5 1/2 cents is the ruling figure. Capt. Hall had four contracts at 6 1/2 cents early in the spring.
