The schr. A. Falconer, from Oswego, is discharging coal at Toronto.

The schr. Abbie L. Andrews passed down the river today for Ogdensburg with grain.

The prop. Dominion and Augusta, with grain for Richardson & Sons, were at Port Huron last night. They have been delayed several days by foggy weather.

The schr. Morwood has gone to pieces on Grand Island, Lake Superior. She had oil for Cleveland. The Morwood was thirty years of age and was frequently here.

Clearances: steamer Khartoum, Rideau canal, 800 bushels of grain; prop. Armenia reached Oswego, with 12,500 bushels of barley; schr. Merritt, light, Welland Canal.

Richardson & Sons are loading the following schooners with barley for Oswego: Elgin, Deseronto, 12,000 bushels; Parthenon, Bath, 4,000 bushels; Butler, Consecon, 8,000 bushels; Bullock, Bath, 9,000 bushels.

Sale of Damaged Grain - There have been many statements made regarding the figures paid for the damaged grain in the schr. Glenora. It was printed that the price paid was 26 cents per bushel, but this turned out to be erroneous. Mr. Richardson, sr., stated today that 40 cents per bushel was the figure accepted. Another dealer in grain, Mr. T.F. Cole, has sent in the following letter, which explains his offer for the grain:

T.F. Cole, Esquire, Kingston.

"Dear Sir, Capt. Clift, on his return, reported your offer of 41 cents, and I thank you very much for it. The report about the wheat being sold for 25 cents is an absurd one. The wet wheat was taken by the assured at a price quite satisfactory, your offer of 41 cents not being overlooked. With many thanks, I am, yours faithfully, Robert Hampton."
