The prop. Glengarry with schrs. Gaskin and Glenora left Fort William yesterday for Kingston.

The str. Rosedale, of Duluth, will be docked at the government dry dock next week for repairs.

Str. Orion and barge Escanaba, Chicago, wheat; str. Rosedale, Duluth, wheat, passed Port Colborne for Kingston last night.

The tug Eliza Bonar of Belleville has been entirely rebuilt during the winter. Her name has been changed to the Beaver. She is still owned by T. Bonar.

The steam yacht Ometa, owned by H. Corby, M.P., Belleville, arrived this morning for inspection. She is pretentious in appearance and her captain J. Roblin is proud of her. The yacht can make about twelve miles an hour and will probably have a new engine bed inserted while here.
