The schr. B.W. Folger is in at Bath with coal from Charlotte.

The barge Moravian, owned by the captain of the tug Maggie May, has gone into Davis' dry dock to be caulked.

E.O. Booth, who has the contract for attending to the buoys in the harbor, will start painting them on Monday.

Capt. Cornwall, of the schr. Falconer, says there is lots of soft coal and slack at Charlotte, but no hard coal. Several vessels are waiting for the hard coal.

Capt. Macdonald brought the steam yacht Dauntless up from St. John, New Brunswick, with a party who go down the canal for a couple of weeks fishing.

Hereafter the steamer Columbian will leave Kingston for Montreal every Monday. Fridays she will run excursions up the river from Ogdensburg and Brockville.

Arrivals: schr. Maggie L., Bay of Quinte ports, peas and barley; str. Spartan, Toronto; str. Passport, Montreal; schr. Falconer, Charlotte, coal; prop. Escanaba, Chicago, 47,000 bush. corn; schr. Julia, Oswego, coal.

Quite a discussion occurred last night between several persons at the Hotel Frontenac, as to how a vessel could sue for damages. One claimed that the rules of this port were twenty-four hours lay and the same time for unloading. If a vessel was detained over this time she could sue the sender of the grain.
