The sailing yacht Gerda is on the marine railway at Portsmouth and is receiving extensive repairs.

Arrivals: str. John Taggart, canal points, lumber; str. St. Magnus, Chicago, wheat; prop. Alma Munro, Montreal; str. Persia, St. Catharines.

Clearances: steambarges Nile and Isis, Deseronto, lumber; tug Walker with Minnedosa and Kildonan in tow, Charlotte, light; scow Allie C., Clayton, lumber.

A framework has been erected on the east end of Stony Island from which will be displayed a white light, from sundown to sunset, until the close of navigation.

The elevator Sampson, belonging to the Kingston and Montreal Forwarding Company of Portsmouth, has been hauled out and will be thoroughly repaired and recaulked.

The schr. Augusta, Kingston to Toledo, light; and prop. Dominion, Kingston to Goderich, light, passed Port Colborne yesterday. The latter had to return for shelter from the heavy winterly gale that was blowing.

A suit has been brought by Martin Barney, of Clayton, against the parties who purchased the str. Ontario when she was sold some four or five years ago in Gananoque. Mr. Barney owned her at the time and it seems has found a flaw somewhere in the foreclosure and sale of the steamer.
