The Mail boats will begin running June 2nd.

The new barge Minnedosa will not be launched until Tuesday.

The schr. Ella Murton arrived at Charlotte with a cargo of ice. She cleared yesterday.

The prop. S. Marshall was chartered at Chicago to carry 55,000 bushels of corn to Ogdensburg.

Capt. A.G. Stanton, Picton, has left for Fenelon Falls to assume command of the steamer Myrtle.

The prop Alma Munro, it appears, did not strike a shoal but broke her rudder through a flaw in it.

On Monday Captain Daley will leave for Deseronto to superintend the work of getting the steam barge Nile ready for navigation.

There is a large amount of grain to be shipped as soon as vessels arrive. All the vessels arriving this week have been chartered to carry ice.

Capt. T. Donnelly jr., inspector of hulls, returned from Picton today after transacting business. He examined the str. Alexandria.

The schooners D.D. Bullock and the Freeman are loading ice at Belleville. At the same port the schooners Fabiola and Two Brothers are loading grain for Oswego.

Tonight the str. Norseman will be taken to Portsmouth where she will be hauled out for repairs. About the middle of next week she will go into service.

When the str. Blanchard, discharging corn at the M.T. company's dock, is ready to clear the captain will try to secure a cargo of ice for Charlotte. If he is not successful he will sail for Detroit and load grain for Buffalo.

This morning the schr. Montgomery, light, while in tow of the str. Magic, ran aground near Grindstone Island. She is lying very near the shoal where the schooner Lem Ellsworth sank 2 years ago. The Montgomery hails from Clayton.

The prop. Blanchard, in port, had a hard time getting to the wharf yesterday. It was the first time the steamer has come here and the captain did not know his way. Capt. Donnelly went out in a yawl when she was near Garden Island and brought her to the M.T. company's wharf.
