The prop. Omaha, Chicago to Kingston, corn, passed Port Dalhousie last night.

The barge Colborne is in Davis' dry-dock being caulked. She will also have some new planking put in.

Clearances: tug Thompson, Chicago, with barges Gaskin and Kildonan; prop. Algonquin, Duluth, light.

The str. St. Lawrence is laid up for the winter, after a big season's work. She may have one or two excursions yet, however.

Arrivals: tug Thompson, Montreal, four barges; sloop Maggie L., Napanee, oats; sloop Idlewild, Napanee, oats; str. Rideau Belle, Ottawa; str. Spartan, Toronto.

The str. Corinthian will take the Rayword party, seventy-five persons, from Alexandria Bay to Montreal tomorrow. The party then takes train for their homes, Boston.

The str. Columbian is still in the position in which she stranded in the Cedar Rapids. Sufficient water has been held by the dam, however, to float the disabled boat, and an attempt will be made this week to get her off.

The prop. Algonquin, which cleared for Duluth yesterday, is the largest vessel plying between the upper lakes and Kingston. She has a capacity for 70,000 bushels and has entered Kingston harbor with 73,000 bushels of corn. She was built in Glasgow, Scotland, and is owned by Thomas Brooks, Port Arthur. She cost over $100,000.
