The str. Nile is discharging bunchwood at the Grove Inn.

The schr. Keewatin arrived, last night, from Colborne with 14,500 bushels of wheat for transhipment to Montreal.

The steamer Kathleen is in Toronto. It is the intention of her owners to put her on the Georgian Bay and Sault passenger route this summer.

The prop. Scotia, with the Southampton and Bavaria in tow, left last night. They will engage in the lumber trade on Georgian Bay.

The first departures of the Montreal Transportation company's fleet for the season were the tug Walker and Minnedosa and Kildonan, which left today for Duluth, light, to load grain.

The schr. Fitzhugh, carried down the St. Lawrence by floating ice in a wind storm and deposited on the beach at Fort Airy, has been released and Saturday was brought to the Ogdensburg docks. She takes hard coal from Oswego to Sheboygan, Wis., at $1 gross ton.

The prop. Toledo is in Oswego. Capt. John Parsons superintended the building of this craft in Chicago in 1863. At that time she was one of the crack boats of the New York Central line running out of Buffalo. She has been remodelled and is now used for freight only.
