p.2 Fog On The Bay of Quinte - The steamer Bay of Quinte has been running very irregularly the last few days, owing to the foggy state of certain points of the route. Instead of coming in early in the afternoon, and leaving at four, she has not been able to reach here until after dark, returning as late as nine and eleven o'clock at night. Today however she is in time, the fog having disappeared. In consequence of these detentions, the steamer left Belleville yesterday afternoon at two for Kingston, leaving here again on her return trip at eleven last night, and getting back by two o'clock today. This is the best time ever made on the Bay of Quinte route.

-The Spartan, which sunk some days since, near Caughnawaga, has been raised and towed into shoal water, where she will be immediately pumped out. The flour on board, only 200 barrels, will also be forwarded immediately. There were also a few barrels of ashes on board, which will, doubtless, be a total loss.

p.3 Imports - 29,30; Exports - 29. Arrivals Sept. 30th - (part) - Robert Gaskin, Chicago: Glassford, Jones & Co., 22,286 bush corn; W. Lewis, 2 bbls flour.
