The schr. Edward Blake is lying at St. Catharines. Capt. T. Murray is having her stripped to go into winter quarters.

The schrs. Queen of the Lakes and Julia came in light from Oswego yesterday. The schr. Clara White brought over 164 tons of coal for R. Crawford.

The season of navigation practically closes today with the closing of the Welland canal. During the season only 3,610,621 bushels of grain were transhipped here for Montreal. Of this 2,524,104 bushels was of corn, and 1,086,577 bushels of wheat. This is the smallest amount handled for some years.

The schr. Anna M. Foster, bound from Oswego to Kingston, with coal, went ashore a mile below Sackett's Harbour on Thursday in a snow storm. The crew are safe and it is thought the vessel can be released. The coal was assigned to Breck & Booth and is insured. The vessel is owned by Capt. Kennedy.
