Montreal Transportation Company's wharf - schrs. G. Mollison, Chicago, 20,142 bush. corn; Willie Keller, Chicago, 16,244 bush. wheat; Typo, Milwaukee, 22,133 bush. do.

James Swift & Co.'s wharf - The steamers Magnet and Athenian passed up, and the Osprey, Corsican and Abyssinian down.

It has been noted this season that a large number of the propellers and schooners which pass down the river to Montreal return light, or nearly so, shippers evidently not caring to give return freights. This shows the great advantage Kingston possesses as a place of transhipment, as the expense of going down the river and having to come up again without adequate return is obviated thereby. We call the attention of shippers to this fact.

The new schooner Oliver Mowat is lying at Davidson and Doran's wharf completing her equipment previous to going up the lake on her first trip. She is a very handsome looking vessel.
