The prop. Cuba will be in Kingston from Hamilton tomorrow.

Clearances: tug Thompson, Montreal, four unloaded barges; str. Monteagle, Oswego, to load coal for Oswego (sic); tug Walker, three barges, Montreal.

The prop. Acadia will be dry-docked at Montreal as soon as she is able to go there. The loss to the Hudson Bay Co. will be all the more severe, because they needed the supplies at once to satisfy the wants of the Indians.

Arrivals: str. Monteagle, Chicago, 50,000 bush. corn; prop. Quito, Chicago, 48,000 bush. corn; prop. Niagara, Fort William, 24,000 bush. wheat; prop. Hill, Chicago, 48,000 bush. corn; tug Thompson, four light barges; str. Algerian, Toronto; str. Persia, St. Catharines; str. North King, Charlotte; str. Corsican, Montreal.

The schr. Echo arrived with a cargo of merchandise from the sunken str. Acadia this morning. The Echo went down to Valleyfield with a load of barley for Richardson Bros. and was called upon while there. Her cargo consists of sugar and glass. The captain says there was every sort of things in the cargo, from a harmonia to a barrel of sugar or nails. A quantity of hardware is about all that is not insured.
