p.2 Laying Up - The tug Ottawa with two barges in tow, passed down for Gananoque today for the purpose of being laid up for the season, being nearly the last of the barges of Messrs. Glassford & Jones. The barque Water Witch lays up at Berry's today, and the propeller North, belonging to Messrs. Glassford & Jones, will arrive in a few days to lay up here. Several sailing vessels are also on their way down to Kingston to go into winter quarters.

The Steamers - The steamer Grecian has gone into winter quarters here; the Champion went up last night for Toronto and Hamilton on her last trip, and on her return will proceed to Montreal there to lay up for the winter season. The Magnet, now on her way upwards, will also make this her last trip in all probability, and will be laid up here on her return from Hamilton.

Port Hope, Nov. 22nd - The schooner Alpha, of Hamilton, sunk outside of the east pier, was floated last night by means of steam pumps of the Home Insurance Company, Buffalo, under the superintendence of J.T. Douglas. The cargo, about 8,000 bushels of wheat, was transferred to the schooner Trade Wind, and shipped to Kington. She is now safely in harbor.

The above cargo of damaged wheat, consigned to Anderson & Ford for reshipment is now being put into barges here for transmission to the proprietors of the Starch Mills at Edwardsburg, who have purchased the entire cargo.
