The nominal rate on corn from Chicago to Kingston is 3 3/4 cents.

The schr. H. Dunn, Toledo to Kingston, timber, reported at Port Colborne yesterday.

The str. Corsican left for Montreal this morning, which closes the season for the R. & O. N. company's line.

The prop. Pickands grounded near the shoal tower when entering the harbour last night, about 9 o'clock, but backed off without much trouble.

The str. Enterprise and one barge, from Kingston, arrived at Port Dalhousie yesterday, and left again for Toronto to load barley for Oswego.

The damage done to the barge Brakie, which sank in the canal the other day, is unknown. She was taken to Davis dry-dock today, where her injuries will be repaired.

Clearances: tug Hall and barges Maggie and Jennie, Oswego, barley; schr. B.W. Folger, Oswego, barley; Peruvian, Oswego, barley; Acadia, Oswego, barley; Anglin, Cape Vincent, ties.

Arrivals: tug Thompson and 2 barges, Oswego, coal; prop. Pickands, Chicago, corn; tug Glide and 4 barges, Montreal, light; str. John Haggart, Perth; schr. Emery, Charlotte, coal.

Capt. Frank Hacket has made a visit to the sunken schr. Charger in Pelee passage and reports both her spars broken off and afloat about the wreck, to which they are attached by the schroud wires. The wreckage is a source of danger to steamers passing over it, as they would be apt to pick up the wire rigging in their wheels. Capt. Hackett advises masters to pass to the southward of the wreck, giving it a wide berth.

Duties Imposed Now - the McKinley Bill signed in U.S. - will affect barley trade - details.
