The schr. Bennett will load lumber for Oswego.

The schr. British Queen cleared with a load of lumber for Oswego yesterday.

The schr. Grantham was stripped of her sails last evening, and today was tied up.

Two of Eastman's barges left for Ottawa, and will there be rebuilt during the winter.

The schr. A. Foster, Capt. Kennedy, discharging coal, has been chartered to carry barley from Bath to Oswego.

The schr. L.S. Hammond brings a cargo of wheat from Detroit to Kingston at 6 1/2 cents per bushel.

The schr. Myosotis is ashore at St. Joseph. Capt. Maloney and crew of six reached shore in the yawl after being tossed around in the breakers. The vessel is a total loss.

Capt. Cavers, of the prop. Celtic, denies the charge of heartlessness made by members of his ship as to the schr. Bessie Barwick. The captain says Pilot Harbour, where the vessel sank, was the last point where he had seen her. He did not say Captain Murray was quite willing to care for himself after the propeller was damaged. Capt. Cavers considered that the flying of the Barwick's colours was a signal of distress, because if there had been any accident she would have waited for the Celtic. About this time a strong breeze sprung up and the Barwick sailed away from the propeller. When Capt. Cavers saw the schooner last she was between Michipicoten Island and the mainland. The engineer and Daniel Mills, first mate, corroborate the captain's story.
