The schr. Queen of the Lakes cleared from Amherst Island for Oswego with 18,000 bushels of barley for Oswego.

The steamer St. Lawrence is in Portsmouth harbour, and will remain there during the winter months. In the spring she will be hauled out on the marine railway and receive necessary repairs.

Captain Blanchard's barges wrecked in the storm at Cape Vincent, N.Y., were taken to Ogdensburg and repaired. They are valued at $9,000 and are fully insured. The barges are expected in Ottawa tomorrow.

Capt. John A. Connolly, commander of the steamer Thomas R. Scott for the season of 1888, has by his skill as master completely eclipsed all former records of the steamer by making eighty-two successful round trips between Muskegon, Whitehall, Grand Haven and Chicago. Captain Connolly is now engaged placing his steamer in winter quarters. Next week, accompanied by William Finn, one of the officers of the same steamer, he will leave for Kansas, where they will spend a few weeks on the Captain's farm. They then intend coming to Kingston to pay their friends a visit.
