The schr. Westside cleared from Ogdensburg yesterday with grain for Oswego.

The propeller Celtic while coming into Swift's wharf this morning ran on some piers. She worked off without damage. She is loaded with grain from Chicago.

The steamer Campana landed a Chinaman at Owen Sound who was sent to Toronto in bond. At the Union station he took advantage of a moment's freedom and escaped. The owners of the steamer had to pay the duty.

The Cornwall canal was opened for traffic yesterday. There was great rejoicing at the good news. Various opinions could be heard on all sides as to the durability of the temporary repairs. Those most competent on the matter, assert that the mud embankment will not stand the strain that it will have to undergo when the water is let in, leave alone the wash of the heavy traffic that is sure to ensue from now to the close of navigation.
