      Kingston Items. - The News says that the propeller BRISTOL, from Lake Huron shores, arrived on Saturday evening, and discharged 3,000 bushels of her wheat into Swift's storehouse, and thence proceeded to Montreal. The steamer OSPREY and propellers EAST, ST. LAWRENCE, DROMEDARY and BRANTFORD proceeded up last night, having been detained on Saturday by the gale. The EAST was disabled on her way up the river by the breaking of two of her buckets. The bark CAMBRIA left on Saturday for the West laden with stone; and the schooner BEN FRANKLIN arrived to be hauled at Portsmouth for repair. She leaves as soon as launched for Wellington, to load a cargo for Oswego. The steamer ST. HELEN and propeller DOMINION will pass up from Montreal to-morrow on their last trip this season.

      Hamilton Harbor. - The Times of Tuesday says: Our wharves now commence to indicate the near approach of the close of navigation. Several vessels have already been stripped of their canvas and gone into winter quarters, and others are undergoing the same operation. The ACADIA has laid up at Mackay's wharf. The steamer OSPREY arrived last night, and this evening will leave for Port Dalhousie dry dock, where she will winter. The propellers EAST and BRANTFORD arrived to-day. The former will lay up at Port Dalhousie, and the latter is going to load here and endeavor to get back to Montreal. If the weather is unfavorable, she will discharge cargo at Prescott and go into winter quarters at Kingston. The steamers of the Montreal line have ceased running, and, as far as we can ascertain, the only vessels now expected up are the propeller DOMINION and the steamer HURON. Taking all in all the season has been one that vessel owners cannot much complain of.
