The schr. Annie Falconer cleared for Napanee today to load barley for Oswego.

The work of deepening the shoal in the harbor will be continued for another week.

It has been decided to dispose of the wreck of the steamer Corinthian under the authority of the court.

The schooner Dundee, bound up, was unable to proceed on her journey last evening owing to a stiff gale from the south west.

Capt. Taylor says he never saw as dull a fall in marine circles as the present season. If there was any business the small vessels could make a small fortune now, as the weather was never better.

Mr. Hughes, shoveller at the M.T. Co's dock, says the present season has been a very fair one, but still not as good as last year. In '91 he made $450 during the summer, but unless there is a big rush within the next three weeks he will fall short of that amount this year.

On Monday next the str. North King will run her last trip for the season to Charlotte when she will come to Kingston and lay up for the winter. This season has been one of the most successful in the history of the boat, and as a large amount of money is to be expended on improvements on her during the winter, the North King will continue to hold her own as one of the best boats on the lake.
