A very large number of vessels have arrived in the harbour, laden with grain. Pressure of other matter prevents our giving a list today.

Serious Accident - Capt. Crowley, of the propeller D.R. Vanallen, informs us that about 5:30 yesterday morning he sighted the propeller Calabria about 15 miles out in the lake with her flag half-mast. Although it was blowing a gale at the time, Capt. Crowley went to see what was the matter, and found the Calabria's engine broken down, so that she was unable to proceed, and had her anchor out, but being in 60 fathoms of water it was of no use. She must have gone down if the Van Allen had not gone to her assistance. Captain Crowley cast off a schooner he had in tow, and brought the Calabria into harbour. She had 21,000 bushels grain on board, and was consigned to the St. Lawrence & Chicago Forwarding Co. The captain and crew did all they could to save themselves, but would have been unable to do so without assistance.

The schooners St. Lawrence, with timber, and the Winona, with wheat, passed through the canal yesterday for Kingston.

The yacht race for the championship flag of Lake Ontario is being sailed over today by the Oriole and Annie Cuthbert for the third time, but little interest is felt in the contest, as it is thought to be a sure thing for the Cuthbert.

p.3 The steamer Geneva has been fitted with a new wheel, at the Kingston Foundry, which greatly helps her speed.
