p.2 Recovered - Mr. Henry Cunningham's boat The Brown Jug was found at the head of Wolfe Island the other day. It appears that it was left there on the day it was taken by two men who were unknown, and who have not been seen since. They left it on the shore, where it was stove in before it could be hauled out of harm's way by some of the neighbours.

The Montreal Transportation Company's Elevator No. 1 was at work this morning unloading the prop. Enterprise, which arrived yesterday afternoon with 20,027 bushels of wheat from Port Dalhousie. The grain will be stored in Kingston for the winter, as the navigation down the river is extremely difficult now.

James Swift & Co.'s wharf - The schooner Agnes arrived from Oswego with 125 tons of Cumberland blacksmith's coal, which is from the State of Maryland. This is the best blacksmith coal in the market. Messrs. Swift & Co. have imported a very large quantity this season.

The dismantling of the Bavarian continues, and a good part of her machinery has been removed. Should the present weather continue she will be hauled out and rebuilt here, as it will be impossible to get her down to Montreal. This, with the repairs to the Spartan, will cause ship-building to be pretty brisk during the winter.
