The prop. Armenia will leave Garden Island next week for Bay City. She will tow several barges.

The tug Proctor passed here yesterday with several barges lumber laden from Brockville to Oswego.

The tug Walker cleared this morning for Oswego with the barge Maggie in tow. They will bring back coal.

Two barges, in the service of Hall & Co., Ogdensburg, which were loaded here with ties, cleared for Cape Vincent today.

The yacht Atalanta has been purchased by W. Turley, Frankford. She is being fitted up at Brighton and is being put in good racing trim.

The schr. Sylvestor Neelon has gone to Port Colborne to reload her cargo of Kingston ore, taken out at the time of her sinking last fall.

The prop. Niagara arrived this morning from Toronto with barley. She came by way of the upper gap. In the lake the captain says she encountered very heavy ice.

The ice above Nine Mile Point is yet quite firm. The steamer H.A. Calvin went at it with force on Wednesday, but the only impression made was when the bow of the craft penetrated it to the depth of four feet. The ice will not break up so long as the present calm weather continues.
