p.1 The number of vessels passing through the Welland Canal this year is immense. The St. Catharines Journal says that on Sunday no less than twenty-four arrived at Port Dalhousie in less than one hour, and at the time the canal opened on Monday morning the piers were lined with craft from the ends to the lock, a distance of fully three-quarters of a mile. The harbour is a quarter of a mile wide. The rush was not got through with until Tuesday, the large number coming down the canal preventing very rapid locking.

p.2 Grain Arrivals - The following have arrived at the Montreal Transportation Company's wharf since our last report:- The Yankee Blade, from Chicago, with 17,467 bushels of corn; the W.W. Grant, from Chicago, with 10,030 bushels wheat; the Persia, from Port Dalhousie, with 11,089 bushels wheat; the Azov, from Chicago, with 12,388 bushels wheat; the Lucy J. Clark, from Chicago, with 20,745 bushels corn; the Jeffery, from Port Dalhousie, with 11,089 bushels wheat; the Eureka, from Port Dalhousie, with 5,989 bushels wheat; the Consuelo, from Toledo, with 8,760 bushels wheat; the Queen of the Lakes with 15,175 bushels wheat; the Enterprise, from Port Dalhousie, with 17,782 bushels wheat; and the Sibyllas, from Port Dalhousie, with 4,846 bushels of wheat.
