The str. Resolute has cleared for Picton with salt.

The str. Pueblo, with 50,000 bushels rye, is at Portsmouth from Milwaukee.

The new steel tug being built at Collinsby will be ready for service next season.

The sloop John A. arrived from Seeley's Bay and returned with a cargo of salt and coal.

Tug Bronson, with three light barges, arrived last night and returned to Montreal this morning.

The sloop Idlewild, Howe Island, is unloading barley, and steambarge Khartoum, Gananoque, is in port with oats.

What grain there is to be shipped in Chicago just now is in small lots, divided among many elevators; 3 1/2 cents for corn to Kingston is offered.

Capt. Paul says the expense of lowering the Point Frederick shoal so that the harbor would be navigable by vessels of large burthen would be small.

Arrivals: tug Hall with three light barges, from Montreal; prop. Pueblo, Milwaukee, 50,000 bushels rye; schr. Moncton, Sackett's Harbor, light.

Clearances: prop. Shickluna, Charlotte, to load coal; schr. Worts, for lakes, light; props. Cuba and Michigan, Chicago, lightened 7,000 and 8,000 bushels respectively and proceeded to Montreal; str. Water Lily, Bay of Quinte, for grain; schr. Albacore, for lakes, light; schrs. R. McDonald (sic - Macdonald), Two Brothers and Flora Carveth, Bay of Quinte, to load barley; tug Thompson with seven barges of grain, for Montreal.

A range light will be placed on the south end of Cataraqui Bridge and another located in Barriefield near the English church, so that vessels of deep draught coming into the harbor may steer clear of the shoals. After passing Four Mile Point vessels take these lights in range with the stern in line with the point. With a range on Barriefield vessels pass the Myles shoal on the starboard side, the penitentiary shoal on the port side, Carruther's shoal on the starboard, and the Point Frederick shoal on the starboard side. The lights will be fifty-five feet in height and tenders will be issued at once for their erection.
