p.2 The Propellers And The Gale - There are five propellers now in port, partly detained by the gale and partly for repairs. The Indian, Avon and Brantford are waiting for the storm to go down to leave port; the Magnet, bound upwards, struck near Brockville, and will have to discharge her cargo, and be hauled out for repairs; the Whitby will also have to unload and be hauled out, having broke her wheel on the way up; the Colonist, which left here a couple of days since, loaded with pig iron, came into port this afternoon, having been compelled to return from South Bay; and the St. Lawrence is said to have been disabled on one of the upper lakes.

The Gale - The gale which blew so strongly yesterday, preventing the steamer Pierrepont from coming over from Cape Vincent until four o'clock, and the Bay of Quinte from arriving here until this morning, blows again today as fresh as ever. The latter steamer had to lie over at German's landing all night, and did not get in until after nine this morning.

Geese and Turkeys - carried by Bay of Quinte and Corinthian for American market.

Niagara Ship Canal - still pushed for by [Chicago Times]

Imports - 30,1; Exports - 30.

Vessels To And From Canadian Ports Passing Through The Welland Canal - 30th.
