The schrs. Oliver Mowat and Nellie Hunter, from Charlotte, are discharging coal at Toronto.

The schr. Annie Falconer, laden with barley from Burlington to Oswego, put in for shelter at Toronto on Saturday and cleared on Monday.

The tug Swain, while towing the schr. Helvetia, grounded heavily on Saturday at Point Aux Pins, Canadian side. She is laden with iron ore.

On Saturday Nester's new schooner, Mary N. Burke, was launched at Baraga. She measures 219 feet over all, 35 feet beam, 15 3/4 feet in hold and has capacity for about 1,250,000 feet of lumber or 2,000 tons of ore.

Three new boats are being completed for the Ogdensburg Transportation Company's Central Vermont line of steamers. One will be brought out two weeks hence, another in about a month, and the third about November 1st.

A few days ago John Annals, a fisherman, while drawing his nets about six miles in the lake and west of Oswego and in about three hundred feet of water, drew up the topmast of a schooner. Vesselmen are of the opinion that it belongs to the ill-fated schooner I.G. Jenkins, which foundered several years ago with all on board.

The steamer Passport made her last trip for the season to Montreal this morning. It is said that the mail line company will lay its boats up here.
