The harbour is very quiet, there not being a single vessel at the M.T. Co.'s dock. The wind also is blowing up the lake, which will prevent expected arrivals coming down.

Coulthurst & McPhie's wharf - O.S. Storrs, Port Dalhousie, 8,875 bush. wheat; W.W. Grant, Port Dalhousie, 10,275 bush. wheat; prop. Enterprise, Port Dalhousie, 12,767 bush. wheat; Agnes, Toronto, 6,000 bush. wheat. The barge Oneida left with 18,525 bush. wheat for Montreal.

James Swift & Co.'s wharf - The steamers Picton and Osprey passed up yesterday; and the Corinthian passed down at ten this morning, having been late in leaving Toronto.

Quick Trips - The prop. Enterprise during the present season, has made an average of three trips to Port Dalhousie and back. She arrived in Kingston on Friday afternoon last with over 20,000 bushels of wheat; discharged her cargo at the M.T. Co.'s elevator, and again went up the lake. On Sunday afternoon about four o'clock she again arrived with over 2,300 (sic - 23,000 ?) bushels of wheat, making the round trip and discharging in about 48 hours.

To the Editor of the Daily News

Dear Sir, - I notice in last night's edition an announcement that Cunningham's boat was again at the front. Now, sir, with regard to the late race for second-class boats, the protest was a very small piece of business, instigated by the owner of the Lady Kate, of Belleville, through jealousy. Mr. Cunningham himself acknowledged in the presence of several gentlemen that the first race ran on Friday was fairly won by the Sunbury. The owner of the winning boat, having understood that the protest would not be entertained, left the same evening for home, hence the absence from the next day's racing.
