p.2 Sunday was a snowy, rainy, windy day. Lake Ontario was lashed into raging billows by a fierce westerly gale, which made people thrill with apprehension for the fate of vessels exposed to its fury. The steamer Kingston was advertised to leave on Sunday evening, but she did not arrive from Montreal until 4 a.m. yesterday. The gale on the lake continuing nearly all day, she deferred her departure to Hamilton until the evening. She had on a large cargo of merchandise for Toronto and Hamilton, and only a few passengers. On her return to this port she will be laid up for the season.

Nothwithstanding the storm, the Passport, from Toronto, made her way safely to this port, arriving here about eight o'clock Sunday evening. She also will lay up for the season. The Champion hs been dismantled for some two or three weeks, and the Banshee made her last trip more than a week ago. The American boats are now all laid up, and we may consider Lake steam navigation as closed for the year 1859.

Commerce of Ogdensburg - 7 steamers and 2 props in 24 hours, each prop brings about 3000 bbls of flour.
