p.2 Shipping News - At J.H. Henderson & Co's wharf the bark British Lion arrived last night with 16,200 bushels corn. The schooner Jessie Drummond left last night for Milwaukee with pig iron. The schooner Acontias is loading 300 tons iron ore for Cleveland.

At the ship yard the schooner J.H. Hartzell is hauled out for general repairs, and the schooner Princess Alexandria has also hauled along-side the dock to repair. The yacht Truant, now lying at the wharf, will haul out to have her bottom blackleaded.

At Carruthers' wharf the steamers Rochester and Picton left yesterday for the Bay of Quinte, having taken on board a cargo of groceries for the Bay ports.

At Swift's wharf the steamers Abyssinian and Kingston passed up this morning. The propeller Brantford touched on her way up this morning as did the propeller Bristol. The steamer Picton returned from her excursion trip to Belleville about eleven o'clock last night.

The Kitty Friel, laden with railway ties, arrived at Gurney and Glidden's wharf with one barge similarly laden, and left again for Cape Vincent.

Cornwall, Aug. 9th - 4 p.m. - The damages to the lock gates on the Cornwall Canal are repaired, and navigation this afternoon is again quite brisk. Much credit is due to the superintendants and employees of the Cornwall Canal for the great energy and activity displayed in repairing the damages. Looking at the condition of the lock at eleven o'clock on Monday night, when the accident occurred, one would have said it could not be repaired in less than a week. On Tuesday at 11 a.m. the propeller Bruno, which was on top of the gate in the lock, was got out, and at 7 p.m. of the same day, only eight hours afterwards, the steamers Corsican and Brantford were locked through. The valuable assistance rendered by Captain Fairgrieves, of the Corsican, both with his boat and crew, deserves the very highest commendation. The propeller Bruno received no injury whatever. The accident occurred by the line becoming entangled in the man's leg, rendering him unable to snub her.
