James Swift is loading the schr. Acacia with lumber for Oswego.

The schr. Singapore is being repaired on the K. & M.T. company's premises, Portsmouth.

The steamer Ella Ross went to Deseronto yesterday, where she will be taken charge of by Mr. Rathbun.

The prop. Algonquin and the schr. G.C. Finney have been chartered to carry 100,000 bush. corn from Chicago to Kingston.

It is understood that the Prince Carl, a Boston keel yacht of considerable repute, will be purchased by a party of Rochester yachtsmen.

The steamers Norseman, Charlotte; Persia, Montreal; Ocean, St. Catharines; and Corinthian, Toronto, called at Swift's wharf yesterday.

The steamer Spartan, which arrived yesterday, will receive some repairs to her wheels here and proceed to Montreal tomorrow.

The tug Walker, belonging to the M.T. company, had her wheel broken towing near Chicago. She will secure a new one at Port Dalhousie.

The tug Roth has left Port Colborne for Cleveland, taking a steam pump. She is after the Canadian schooner W.R. Taylor, which is beached and is reported to be leaking badly.

The steamer Ella Ross has made perhaps her last trip over the Kingston via Montreal Ottawa route. Although the route embraces some of the best scenery on the continent, it has not been paying. The Ella Ross will not appear on it next season.

The S.S. Rosedale, laden with grain from Fort William, ran on a boulder and stuck in the harbour yesterday while going to the M.T company's dock. After being lightened of 6,000 bushels of grain she floated off the rock. Around about it there is seventeen feet of water. Other boulders besides the one in question were discovered.
