The schooner Edward Blake is undergoing repairs at Shickluna's dry dock, St. Catharines.

Arrivals: schr. Garibaldi, Charlotte, 240 tons coal; schr. Norway, Toledo, 721 tons coal.

The steamer H. Hazelton has been seized at Charlotte. The seizure grew out of an action brought by the engineer, to recover wages due him to the amount of $353.

The steamer Ella Ross will only make three trips in September, and will lay up at Smith's Falls. The boat so far has been well patronized. The steamer will, during the winter, be lengthened seven feet amidships, and by placing the pilot house on the hurricane deck, six to eight extra state rooms will be provided. Captain Garrett would lengthen her more only the "lock" will not permit of a further extension.
