Arrivals: tug Hall, Montreal, four barges; schr. B.W. Folger, Oswego, coal.

The schr. Ella Murton cleared for Charlotte, today, to load coal for Toronto. Capt. Saunders is having a good share of the business this summer.

The barges Dakota and Siren, which were ashore near Oswego, are at Portsmouth. Two unsuccessful attempts were made to haul the Dakota on the ways yesterday. She is loaded with coal.

Since navigation opened men have been engaged raising the steamer City of Owen Sound, sunk some years ago in Georgian Bay with a cargo of corn. The work is directed by Mr. Leslie, of the Collinsby Rafting company, and the boat has been got to Little Current and is partly out of water. It is expected she will be docked before the fall.

p.2 Prince Edward County - July 26th - The steam yacht "Startled Fawn" ownd by Thompson, of Belleville, is undergoing repairs this week at Hepburn's marine railway. She is commanded by James Downing, a former resident of the place. Business is slack among the vessels of the Bay fleet. The Two Brothers, Capt. McCrimmon, is at present laid up at Picton, and the captain thinks that more will shortly follow to await the opening of the fall grain trade....The schooner Acacia sailed from Waupoos on Monday, after receiving a new coat of paint during the past week.
