The sailing yacht Norma is receiving a new bow and being otherwise improved.

The cook on the steamer Quebec fell in the hold today and dislocated a shoulder blade.

Departures: sloop Laura D., Cape Vincent, cedar posts; prop. Orion; steam barge Owen Sound, from Collinsby, with schrs. Neelon and Cavalier, light, Toledo.

Arrivals: str. Quebec, Cape Vincent, light; schr. Nellie Hunter, Oswego, 332 tons coal; barge Iowa, 1,935 barrels of herrings, part of S.S. Xania's cargo; S.S. Xania, Norway, full cargo of herrings.

This morning the S.S. Xania arrived from Norway with a cargo of herrings for Chicago. At Montreal she lightened part of her cargo into the barge Iowa. The Xania was reloaded here and as soon as a pilot is engaged she will proceed on her trip. She is iron and a quaint looking ship, not very large and similar to the steamer that arrived here from Norway last year with the same cargo for the same place.

Incidents of the Day - Mr. Anderson, chief engineer of the marine department, is arranging for the continuation of the work of the hydrographic survey of the Bay of Quinte from Trenton to Kingston. The triangulation of the bay was completed last year. This season the work will consist of taking soundings of the bay on which to base a new chart.
