Grain On The Lakes - There is a great quantity of grain on the lakes consigned to Kingston, all kinds being shipped freely in Milwaukie and Chicago. Freights are also advancing in those cities, which is evidence of a coming good season. At the Welland Railway offices in Port Colborne, there are bills of lading for 500,000 bushels of grain to arrive. 68,000 bushels were shipped from Port Dalhousie by the Railway on Monday last. The evidences are good of a prosperous fall season.
