p.3 Canal -

Marine - M.T. Co. - The propeller Cuba arrived here since Saturday with 11,665 bushels of wheat and 16,675 bushels of corn.

Swift's - The steamers calling here are: Celtic from Hamilton; Acadia from Toronto; Cuba from Toronto, and City of New York from Ogdensburg. The Spartan leaves for Hamilton this evening.

-The water was let into the Lachine canal Saturday night. The barges now waiting near Kingston, numbering about twenty, laden with grain, etc., will, however, not be able to make the passage before Tuesday, as there will hardly be sufficient depth of water until then.

W.W. - The tug Jessie Hall is reported sunk down the river. One of Messrs. Calvin & Breck's steamers has gone to her assistance.

Forwarding Trade - Sir John's proposed tax on grain and fuel would have hurt Kingston's forwarding trade.

The Guide - Chisholm Bros' May issue of Guide is out.
