The schr. Singapore cleared for Oswego today with a cargo of barley, shipped by F. Cole.

The strs. Armenia, Ella Ross and Deseronto were hauled out for repairs during the winter.

The tug Walker and 2 barges, coal laden, arrived after a very stormy passage from Charlotte, last night.

The crew of the schr. Neelon arrived here from Sandusky, where she discharged a load of ice, and went into winter quarters.

The schrs. Baltic and Two Brothers, with coal for Napanee, are stuck in the ice at Deseronto. The ice is 4 inches thick and making every day.

The tug Thompson and tow of light barges arrived at Fairhaven yesterday from Charlotte, and will load coal for Kingston. This will probably finish the season for this tug.

The misty weather of the past week is very unfavourable to navigation. At a distance from shore the mist rises very thick and renders it difficult to see more than a hundred yards away. The sturdy old Pierrepont seems to be able to find Garden Island all right, notwithstanding, and makes her usual trips on time.
