The schr. Picton is loading barley for Oswego.

There will be but few vessels to lay up here during the winter.

Navigation through the Welland Canal will close on Saturday, the 8th inst.

There are a number of Canadian vessels in Oswego that cannot get out because of adverse winds and ice.

The schrs. Clara White and A. Foster are in Oswego laden with coal for Kingston. When the wind changes to the south they will start for the city.

Some years ago Capt. Stephen Tyo took a cargo of barley to Cape Vincent on January 18th. Will such a thing occur during this season of navigation?

Incidents Of The Day - A photograph of the wrecked barges lately on the shore at Cape Vincent, has been sent to the department at Washington as a further proof of the requirements of a breakwater at that port.
