The prop. Scotia, and barges Gaskin and Southampton, are loading ties at the K. & P. R.R. dock for Cleveland.

The steamer Olive came to the city from Montreal today, to have her machinery inspected. She will, until Mr. Bajus' new steamer Kathleen is finished, run between Smith's Falls and Montreal, and in connection with the steamer Rideau Bill (sic).

The steamer Ocean bound for St. Catharines arrived at Swift's wharf, from Montreal, with a cargo of general merchandise, at 9:30 this morning. Steamer was due here at 3:30, but owing to heavy fog which prevailed on the St. Lawrence, she was detained.

The low water is bothering the boats on the Rideau. The Belle on her first trip up from Kingston stuck for an hour one mile this side of Kingston Mills, and for the night on a stump this side of Chaffey's Locks. The pilots will have to keep their weather eyes open this year.

Arrivals: steamer Olive and Ocean, Montreal; schr. Elgin, Oswego, coal.
