p.2 Napanee, May 29th - The schr. Snow Bird arrived yesterday with coal for the Rathbun company. The schr. Loretta Rooney arrived in the harbor yesterday with a load of coal for the Stewart company.



The str. Erin cleared for up the lakes yesterday.

The sloop Idlewild arrived from bay ports with oats for Richardson & Sons.

Passed Port Colborne, downwards: str. Clinton and barges Lisgar and Grimsby, Toledo to Garden Island, timber.

The schr. Pilot took a load of grain to Deseronto for Richardson & Sons, and the sloop Maggie L. took wheat to Glenora.

The biggest part of the coal for Kingston has already arrived and vessels will have less to do in future than they have had so far this season. Many vessels are now laid up. Capt. Saunders, of the schr. Ella Murton, says there is more money in laying up than running. There is very little coal moving up the lake.


Steamers Ocean, Cuba, Melbourne, Acadia and Lake Michigan.

Will leave Gunn's Wharf for Toledo, Cleveland, Hamilton, Toronto, Montreal and way ports. Three boats weekly east and west. For tickets and freights apply to

GUNN & CO., Agents.
