-The R.M. Steamer Kingston - This vessel turned up on Monday evening all right, having put into Port Darlington when the gale became too strong to venture down the lake. The people of the Kingston neglected their duty in not telegraphing to Toronto or Kingston, when in a place of safety. They must have known that owing to the time of their departure from Toronto, the most serious apprehensions would be entertained as to their whereabouts, and that the families of their crew and passengers would feel greatly alarmed. While the agents of the boat were telegraphing to every point of the lake on both sides, they were remaining quiet in Part Darlington utterly regardless, not even replying to the telegrams sent.

* Since the above was written we learn that the agent of the Company at Darlington neglected to despatch the telegram to Kingston placed in his hands by Captain Dunlop, which accounts for the steamer not being heard from until she reached this port. The fault, therefore, does not lie with those belonging to the Kingston.

-The Storm and the Steamers - they are running again; sch. Alma was towed off Cole's Point.

-Laying Up - str. City of Toronto and Heron in Toronto harbor.
