The prop. Dominion and schr. Augusta, from Toledo, with timber, are at Garden Island.

The schrs. M. Muir and E.R. Blake have been chartered to bring 33,000 bushels of wheat from Chicago to Kingston.

A cargo of coal, shipped to the city from Oswego on the schr. Julia, for Mr. Anglin, has been rejected by him. The coal, it is said, is not fit for use.

The work of unloading the schr. Emerald was finished last evening. Three hundred thousand deals were transferred from the schooner to a barge for Quebec.

The schr. Cornelia, driven ashore by the storm of Sunday, was taken off yesterday and towed to Clayton to discharge her coal. She will be brought here for repairs.

The sloops Idlewild and Gull will have a race from Richardson's elevator to Nine Mile Point and back tomorrow for $100 a side. They will be given a flying start at 9 a.m.

Arrivals: prop. Acadia, Chicago, 3,913 bushels of wheat; schr. Eliza White, Charlotte, 215 tons coal.
