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.
