Lumbering on the Bay of Quinte - The lumbering trade on the Bay of Quinte has been carried on extensively this year, and is still in a state of business activity. Most of the lumber comes down the Moira and Salmon Rivers. Rathbun & Son, a large lumber firm at Mill Point, have been compelled to purchase a tug for their special use, owing to the increase of business. They have also purchased Bogart's Mill at Belleville, besides going into the building of vessels for the lumber and carrying trade generally. Taking it all in all, the business along the route this season has been far ahead of what has been done in former years.

Fresh Herring -Herrings have been coming in in great abundance to the fishing grounds up the Bay of Quinte during the past few days. Whitefish are also plentiful, but not so much so as herrings.

Schooner B.F. Davy - The schooner B.F. Davy has been purchased by Messrs. Swift & Fraser, owners of the Waterwitch. They are now loading her with cordwood for Toronto, and have a return cargo engaged. It is the intentioin of the new owners to haul the vessel out on the ways this fall and put her in a complete state of repair. The highest bonafide bid for the B.F. Davy on the 4th instant, was $4,100; Messrs. Swift & Fraser, we learn, are to pay $5,000.
