Close of Navigation

Although we had for some weeks past Queen's weather, yet there are strong indications of the approach of winter and the early close of navigation for the year 1872. The steamer Francis Smith has made her last trip to the upper lakes, and will run, while the weather permits, to Owen Sound. The Chicora left here , on Tuesday, for Fort William, with a full cargo, and this also will be her last trip there this season. The Cumberland, which is expected daily will not make any more round trips, but may possibly run once or twice to the Sault. The steamer Waubuno will make a couple more trips to Parry Sound, and the Algoma will run up till the end of the month if the weather permits. The various sailing vessels in port are also hurrying up their loading in order to reach their destination at as early a date as possible.
