The schr. Ballou arrived in from Consecon with wheat for Richardson & Sons today.

The prop. Arabian got in last night and lightened 23,000 bushels of wheat and went to Montreal.

The schr. Hanlan came in under full canvass this morning. She had a strong head wind down the lake and made good time.

The captain of the schr. Ballou says he lost his topsail in grounding at Sodus in the gale the other day. It cost the vessel considerable to get off.

The prop. Glengarry and barge Minnedosa arrived yesterday from Fort William with cargoes of grain. After being unloaded they cleared for the west.

Arrivals: str. Corsican, Toronto; str. James Swift, Ottawa; str. Acadia, Montreal; schr. B.W. Folger, Oswego, coal; prop. Elfinmere, Chicago, 42,000 bushels wheat; prop. Rosedale, Fort William, 58,000 bushels wheat.

The str. Glengarry and barge Minnedosa arrived at the M.T. Co.'s dock yesterday morning at nine o'clock with about 90,000 bushels of grain and were relieved of their cargoes and left for up the lakes yesterday afternoon again. This is big time.



Washington, Sept. 21st - Notice is given that on and after Sept. 30th, 1893, during thick or foggy weather, a six-inch steam whistle will be sounded blasts of three seconds' duration, separated by silent intervals of fifty-seven seconds, at Genessee Port station, N.Y. The fog signal is situated on the old lighthouse crib on the west side of the west pier, and about 1,000 feet from its outer end entrance to Charlotte harbor, mouth of Genesee river, Lake Ontario, N.Y.

On the same date the ball will be discontinued as a fog signal, unless the steam whistle shall be disabled, when it will be struck by machinery every thirty seconds as heretofore.
