The schr. Dunn made her last trip to Toledo in three days. This is exceptionally fast time.

The schr. B.W. Folger is at the spile dock. She will load lumber for Oswego and return with coal.

The schr. Katie Eccles picked up a load of grain from Colborne, Brighton and Belleville for the M.T. Co.

The prop. Campana had her foremast head broken when she attempted to leave port on Thursday night.

The schr. Fleetwing will load, today, with lumber for Oswego and return with a cargo of coal for Swift & Co.

The whaleback steamer Charles Wetmore, which went ashore on the North Spits, Oregon, last month, has begun to go to pieces.

The Campana took Dr. Curtis' yacht, Garfield, in tow up the bay yesterday afternoon. The yacht will be laid up in the Murray canal.

The schr. Grantham will go to Oswego to load coal for the M.T. Co. The vessel is also chartered for a load of coal for Breck & Booth.

Swift & Co.'s elevator is at present without anything to do. There are no vessels in to be unloaded and the firm have none on the way here.

The schr. Dunn, Capt. James Dix, has three loads yet to bring down from Toledo. This will occupy six weeks time, when she will be laid up at Gunn's wharf for the winter.

Capt. T. Donnelly has been absent for a couple of days attending the suit going on at Picton, the outcome of the collision between the str. Reindeer and the schr. Two Brothers, some two years ago. He was an expert witness. The owner of the schooner brings action for $2,000 damages and the case is not yet settled.

Capt. Estes, of the str. St. Lawrence, says he feels the quietness of the winter months very much after running among the Thousand Islands all summer. He pursues no business in the winter and generally takes a trip to some place he has not yet visited. Last year he went to Georgia. He will take a trip again this winter some where in the southern states.

With reference to reports current that Capt. T. Donnelly was the inspector who inspected the steamer Corinthian in the spring and proclaimed her all right, a reporter approached Mr. Donnelly on the matter this morning and was told that such was not the case. The inspecting of the vessel was not in this province, the authorities in Quebec alone had to to with the steamer. As to the claim that the str. Columbian's rope steering gear should not have passed by the inspector, Capt. Donnelly says he had no jurisdiction whatever in the matter.
