p.2 Shipping News - There is little stir in the shipping business at present other than the usual regular trade of the port. In the grain forwarding business there is generally a lull each year at this season. At the shipyard there is, however, a busy time. In addition to the business on hand the yacht Gorilla has just been hauled out for a complete overhaul, and several of the other boats, bound for the races at Brockville and Prescott, have been inspected.

At Carruthers' wharf the usual amount of daily business is exhibited. The steamer Norfolk, from Smith's Falls, arrived with a general cargo, and will leave with a return general cargo tomorrow. The steamer Rochester arrived earlier than usual this morning, having to proceed to Cape Vincent previous to her return.

At Swift's wharf - The steamer Abyssinian passed up last night, and the Athenian down this morning. The steamers Kingston and Picton passed up last night. The steamer Louise returned to Ottawa yesterday afternoon. The steamer Spartan passed down this morning.

At Gurney & Glidden's wharf - The tug Elswood, with three light barges, left for the Rideau this morning.

Off For The Regattas - The following boats left today to participate in the regattas to be held at Prescott on Friday, and at Brockville on Saturday next:- The John Power, Island Maid, Mena, Belle and Girl of the Period. There will also be a boat race at Ogdensburgh on the Tuesday following, the national holiday of the United States, when some of the boats will be present, and probably participate in the event, if practicable.
