The schooner Northern Belle, with a cargo of wheat, consigned to the Montreal Transportation Company, arrived on Sunday and reports a collision with the barque City of Buffalo, in the straits, near Detroit. She sustained considerable damage, but after unloading her cargo at Detroit, and being repaired, shipped again, and discharged on Monday in good order.

The barque Prince of Wales sailed from Garden Island this morning for Port Dalhousie, light.

Laying Up - The propellers America and Acadia passed up today on their last trip, and will go into winter quarters at St. Catherines. The Royal Mail Line, which are the only passenger steamers now running on the River St. Lawrence, are also laying up, the Passport and Corinthian here, and the others at Montreal. The Magnet and Corinthian will pass down, the former today and the latter tomorrow, for the last time during the season of 1870. The schooner W.W. Grant, chartered with pig iron from Cobourg to Cleveland, left for Cobourg to load this afternoon.

Police Court - James Manning, a sailor, who, while in a state of insensibility last night was relieved of what money he had in his possession, his boots and hat, appeared in the dock charged with drunkenness and vagrancy. Being desirous of leaving on a vessel immediately, and the court taking into consideration the sorry plight in which his previous day's revelry had resulted, the case was dismissed, and the offender allowed to leave.
