p.2 State Of Navigation - The season of open navigation for steamers is drawing to a close. The boats of the Through Line have nearly all ceased operations. The Passport went up the lake on Monday evening, but as soon as she got outside the Lower Gap she was compelled to return, owing to the high sea which was running. She again left port later in the evening, taking a course inside of Amherst Island, and by the Upper Gap. She has gone to Toronto and Hamilton for her last trip this season, and on the return will descend to Montreal, and again come up to Kingston, where she will winter as usual. The Magnet is at present down at Montreal, and it is not decided whether she will make another trip up to Kingston or lay up for the winter at Montreal. The Empress is at present in Kingston, waiting for orders, but she is scarcely expected to make another trip. The Banshee and the Champion are laid up here. These boats have, we arre glad to hear, done a very profitable business during the past season. The traffic has been brisk, and but for the unfortunate disasters to the Passport and Empress in collision, and the sinking of the latter at Montreal, there would have been no drawback to the full profits of a very busy season. Propellers and schooners are still running, though some of the latter class of vessels are laid up here.

-Mr. S. Andrews, of firm of Donaldson & Andrews, of Port Dalhousie, seized while at Chicago - is subject to draft.
