p.2 The Steamers And The Smoke - The steamer Kingston, which should have reached here from Montreal yesterday afternoon, only got up between eleven and twelve today. She lay by on Saturday night at Coteau du Lac, and last night at Edwardsburgh. The Banshee and Passport, both going downward, had to lay by at Lachine last night. The smoke on the river from the burning woods was never known to be so thick as it is at present. The water too is very low. The shoal at Cross-over Island above Brockville is out of water, which has not been the case for many years past. Another reason why steamers should move warily in passing up and down the river.

Picton, Sept. 2nd - The brig Fleur de Marie, from Oswego to Presque Isle, light, went ashore at ten o'clock today in a fog, 2 1/2 miles east of Long Point. She is in good condition and will not receive much damage, unless it blows heavily from the south.

p.3 Vessels To And From Canadian Ports Passing Through The Welland Canal - Sept. 2nd.
