The str. Algerian left for Montreal today having been thoroughly repaired.

The barge Duluth has been placed in Davis' dry-dock for general repairs.

The sailing yacht Choctaw, of Rochester, was at Swift's wharf yesterday afternoon.

Arrivals: prop. Alma Munro, Chicago, corn; str. Bon Voyage, Charlotte; str. Rideau Belle, Ottawa; str. Ida, Ottawa.

The prop. Alma Munro arrived in port this morning, after having been delayed some time by running aground during a fog on Lake Huron. It was found necessary to jettison about 7,000 bush. of corn.

Mr. Clark, of the malt house, purchased the prop. Clinton's damaged grain, 9,257 bushels rye, for 36 cents a bushel, and the vessel is now at the malt house unloading. A local grain merchant said, this morning, that this was the best sale ever made in Kingston, and Mr. Clarke could not help but lose by the transaction. The remainder of the cargo has been shipped to the consignees, Crane & Baird, Montreal.
