The schr. Straubenzie left Davis' dry-dock this morning after being caulked.

The M.T. Co.'s shovellers are again walking around, there being no barges in.

The props. Escanaba and Rosedale, Toledo to Kingston, corn, passed Port Colborne last night.

Clearances: prop. City of Owen Sound, Toledo, light; schr. Ella Murton, Charlotte; prop. Denver, Erie.

The rate on corn to Kingston from Chicago has dropped to 2 3/4 cents. The str. Pueblo brings wheat down.

The cause of the prop. Armenia having to go into the dry-dock was due to her breaking a piece off her bow.

The str. Bohemian is now plying on the Saguenay in the place of the str. Canada, laid up with a broken shaft.

Owing to the low water and also to allowing too much helm in coming into port this morning the prop. Glidden ran aground off Folger's dock. The tug Walker soon relieved her.

The board of trade yacht Viola, of Toronto, passed through for the islands yesterday afternoon.

The prop. Glidden, corn, and barge Warmington, wheat, Chicago; barge St. Louis, Fort William, wheat; prop. Shickluna, Fort William, wheat; barge Worts, Fort William, wheat; are the vessels reported at Port Dalhousie last night for Kingston.
