Tomorrow at noon all insurances on cargoes run out.

The schr. Maria Annette will be rebuilt this winter.

Arrivals: sloop Lorraine, Bay of Quinte, 4,000 bushels of barley; prop. Dominion and barge Augustus, Port Arthur, grain.

The new tug James A. Walker, owned by the M.T. company, left Montreal last evening with two barges, light. After leaving Lachine the steamer broke her wheel.

The schr. Fabiola, of Picton, was chartered to carry barley from Port Hope to Oswego but the crew refused to take the vessel up the lake, and the captain was released from his contract.

The Woodduck arrived today from Deseronto with 17,000 feet of lumber. The boat is in a dilapidated condition. Her main boom was broken and her sails torn yesterday.

The prop. Tilley, with wheat from Duluth, passed down the American channel this morning. She is bound for Ogdensburg. On returning west she will take the schr. Merritt, lying here, with her.

Yesterday a boat owned by Mr. Sheeley, of Cape Vincent, ran ashore at Gravelly's Point, and the schr. Dowd, at the Cape Vincent elevator, dragged her anchor and drifted down the stream. The steamer Pierrepont released the boat and towed the schooner to the Cape.
