Closing of Navigation. - The sailing craft as they arrive are generally undergoing the dismantling process and being secured and being secured to safe quarters for the winter. The passenger steamers are withdrawn with the exception of the Bay Quinte steamer and the American steamer Bay State, expected up on her last trip tomorrow. The Kingston and Cape Vincent ferry boat as usual will plough her way through as long as the ice will permit. The freight steamers are hurrying to and fro with unusually large freights and exhibit no inclination of tying up as yet. The present state of the weather is highly favorable, but a sudden change and final winding up of marine business can hardly be delayed many weeks. The several shipyards have a moderate amount of business laid out for the winter, principally in repairing and rebuilding, though one first class vessel is to be started at Portsmouth - Kingston British American.
