The mist off the harbour was very dense this morning and rendered navigation very difficult.

The str. Khartoum was chartered to load barley for Deseronto, but it was doubtful if she will be able to take the cargo till next season.

The schr. Queen of the Lakes has gone into winter quarters at Charlotte. She was unable to get away owing to a difficulty about her charter.

The Montreal Transportation Company's tug Thompson, actively engaged placing the barges and other vessels in their winter quarters, was laid up this morning.

The schr. Baltic, with a load of coal for Napanee, is frozen up at the mouth of the Napanee River. The owners are in correspondence with Folger Bros. with a view to securing the Pierrepont to break the way for the vessel and take her into Napanee.
