p.2 The Steamers - The steamer Kingston, which should have been down yesterday morning, did not arrive until last night about midnight. She proceeded on to Montreal, where she will lay up for the winter. The Passport went down at her usual hour this morning, and returns to lay up here, when the line will be reduced to the Grecian, Magnet and Champion, which steamers will run as best they can until compelled to succumb to the necessities of the season.

For the West Indies - The schooner Queen of the North came into port today laden with flour and staves, bound for the West Indies, whence she will bring on her return a cargo of sugar. The adventure is by Messrs. Smith & Co. of Toronto. The captain reports the weather on Thursday night as the heaviest he ever experienced on the lakes.
