The barge Corn Crib is in the government dry-dock.

Clearances: tug Bronson, Montreal, four barges grain; tug Hall, Montreal, four barges coal.

The str. Corsican has had the electric bail system put in. It is a great convenience and extends all over the vessel.

The condenser of the str. Corinthian became deranged near Quebec and the craft had to be towed to port for repairs.

Harbor Inspector McCammon says the water is eighteen inches higher in the harbor at present than it was March last.

Mr. McKay, Hamilton, proprietor of the prop. Magnus, passed down in the vessel this morning, it being her first trip this season.

Arrivals: prop. Magnus, Duluth, lightened 21,086 bush. wheat; tug Hall, Oswego, three barges of coal; schr. Regina, Charlotte, 800 tons of soft coal for M.T. Co.; tug Bronson, Montreal, four barges; str. Algerian, Prescott; str. Rideau Belle, Ottawa; schrs. Fisher and White Oak, Oswego, coal.

The str. Corsican arrived in port last night after having been delayed a day in the Cornwall canal. She was caught in a gale on Wednesday night and struck, breaking one of her wheels badly. Workmen had to be secured from Montreal to remedy the accident. The steamer turned back from Kingston and proceeded to Montreal on regular time. She packed up a large party at Alexandria Bay.
