From a stage of 18 feet 8 inches at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon, the water at the Limekiln crossing began dropping, and late last night the Lake Carrier's gauge was showing a depth of 18 feet 3 inches. A downbound fleet began to gather above the crossing, and before midnight the following big steamers were waiting: H. C. Frick, Bunsen, W. L. Smith, Neilson and George H. Russel.
