The harbour this morning presented a brisker appearance from the fact that several vessels had arrived and were getting discharged. This is about the last of the season, which is expected to be closed by Saturday next.

Jones & Miller's wharf - schr. Olive Branch, Cobourg, 7,500 bush. wheat.

Montreal Transportation Company's wharf - schr. Pandora, Toledo, 18,973 bush. wheat; T.H. Howland, Chicago, 21,499 bush. wheat; prop. Armenia, Windsor, 5 bbls. whiskey, White & Betts; 25 bbls. spirits, A. McCormick, and 265 bbls. spirits, Montreal.

James Swift & Co.'s wharf - The steamer Corinthian passed down last night.

The prop. Armenia while off Niagara, broke her steering gear, and was towed down the lake to Kingston by the prop. Ocean. She will be repaired here and then proceed to Montreal.

Supposed Loss - The schr. Gilbert Mathison left Chicago on the 20th October, consigned to Kingston with about 18,900 bush. wheat. She has not been heard of since, and it is supposed that she has gone down with all hands during the recent gales. She was fully insured in the Etna Insurance Company of Hartford, of which Mr. James Swift is agent in Kingston.
