The schr. Prussia, with timber from Toledo, is expected at Garden Island.

The schr. Doblins Granger, from Chicago to Kingston with corn, passed Port Colborne last night.

The schr. Gulnair cleared from Toronto yesterday for Sandusky to load coal for Kingston.

The schr. Flora, Capt. Thomas, is at Toronto from Grindstone Island with 125 tons of paving stones.

The props. Alma Munro and Cuba are discharging grain here. They proceeded to Montreal this afternoon.

The schr. Albacore, Capt. Ewart, has been chartered to load paving stone at Grindstone Island for Toronto. She is getting 45 cents per ton.

The schr. Albacore on coming out of Toronto harbor on her way to Kingston collided with the schr. Dundee. The jibboom of the Dundee was carried away while the mainsail of the Albacore was completely torn.

The str. Lake Michigan arrived last night from Chicago. On her way across the lake she experienced very rough weather. The sea was so heavy that the waves went over the ship and damaged the grain to a considerable extent. She is lightening her cargo at the M.T. company, after which she will clear for Montreal.

On Monday a severe storm was raging on Lake Michigan and which the str. Rosedale had to encounter. She had just passed Saginaw Bay when the wheel got away from the mate and wheelsman and the latter was instantly killed. Every spoke in the wheel was broken when it struck his head in its rapid revolutions. At the coroner's inquest, held on board later, it was found that his name was Thomas Rowland.
