The schr. Ella Murton is in from Toledo with coal.

The str. Corinthian is looking ever so much neater since Capt. Dunlop took hold of her.

The steamer D.D. Calvin and consorts left for Georgian Bay and will return with lumber for Oswego.

Clearances: tug Thompson, Fair Haven, four barges for coal; tug Hall, Montreal, six barges grain; str. J. Rugee, Oswego, to load coal.

Arrivals: tug Thompson, Montreal, three barges; tug Hall, Montreal, three barges; str. Passport, Toronto; str. Spartan, Montreal.

Capt. Ewart, of the schr. Albacore, says the schr. Lady Macdonald, aground near Fairhaven, is a total wreck with the exception of her rigging outfit; no insurance.

The str. Richelieu is gaining a reputation for fast sailing and apparently can knock anything out entering Kingston except the str. St. Lawrence. Although the Islander had a good start, yesterday, the Richelieu soon passed her like a shot.

The barges Bismarck and Dakota have been pulled off near Oswego. They are but slightly damaged. The men are now working at the Siren and Cherokee. The former is badly damaged and will sustain a heavy loss.

What Will Be Wanted - the Tete du Pont barracks and a bonus of $50,000 from city if a grain elevator is to be built in Kingston harbor.

Won't Stop At the Park - R. & O. Nav. Co. steamers having problems with customs at Thousand Island Park. [Clayton-on-the-St. Lawrence]
