Yesterday the Calvin company shipped its eleventh raft to Quebec.

The schooner S.R. Roney, loaded with lumber for Oswego, was blown ashore at Sand Point yesterday. The vessel was not badly damaged, and was pulled off by the tug Cornelia. The yacht Katie Grey, of Oswego, was driven high on the beach at Sodus Point, where she now lies.

The large schooner W.J. Suffel, Port Hope, was driven into Charlotte before the gale, with all sails set. She ran into the fleet of the Rochester yacht club lying at its regular anchorage, doing serious damage. The tug steamer Glengarry collided with the steamer Sylvan Stream, tearing her from her moorings and throwing her into the river and against the schooner Caroline Marsh. The Sylvan Stream was damaged, but not seriously. About 6:30 a.m., Monday, a yacht was discovered trying to make the harbour. As she was in the jaws of the pier she suddenly broached to and capsized. The life-saving crew rescued three men, but the fourth, a young man named Parks, of Rochester, in the forecastle, was drowned.

Arrivals: prop. Clinton, Duluth, 17,500 bush. wheat, with consorts Lisgar 21,161 bush. wheat, and Grimsby, 23,000 bush. wheat; schr. Oliver Mitchell, Milwaukee, 21,000 bush. wheat; Persia, St. Catharines; Spartan, Toronto; Corinthian, Montreal.
