The schr. A.M. Foster is in port, from Gananoque, for 155 tons coal.

Mr. E. Arundell did the caulking in connection with the steamer Kathleen, and his work has given satisfaction.

This morning the steam-yacht Juno, belonging to the Kingston penitentiary, passed down the river to Prescott. She was in charge of Deputy Warden Sullivan. He returns with a party, including Hon. Mr. Thompson and wife.

The tug Thompson towed the schr. Lem Ellsworth, which sunk near Pine Island some days ago, to Oswego yesterday. She will be thoroughly repaired. Part of her cargo, 180 tons stone, which was taken from her while she was sunk, will be taken to Oswego by the schr. Julia.

Capt. Hargrove, of the schr. Lady Macdonald, and Capt. Rankin, of the schr. J.F. Suffel, drunk together in Toronto last night and quarrelled. Capt. Rankin went on board the tug Jackman, towing Lady Macdonald, but had no sooner got there than Capt. Hargrave fired at him, the bullet was wide of its mark. A warrant awaits the return of Lady Macdonald.
