The schr. Nellie Hunter is at Hepburn's dry-dock, Picton, to be caulked and repaired.

The schrs. Annie Falconer and Folger are in from Oswego with coal and the str. Rideau Belle is here from Perth.

The repairs to the str. Varuna, which consisted of a new stuffing box and wrought iron shaft, it is claimed, makes this vessel better than ever.

The str. Merritt will be remodelled and enlarged before next season by an addition of twenty feet. Belleville parties will take the controlling interest.

J.M. Cole, the popular steward of the str. Maud, finished his season's work last Saturday and expects to occupy the same position next season. He gave the company perfect satisfaction and increased the popularity of the Maud for excellent meals.

The steambarge Josephine, from Chicago, loaded with grain and billed for Portsmouth, ran on a shoal in the harbor this morning. She was pulled off after much time was lost. She brought the schr. Parker to Oswego and the captain of the Josephine forgot he was billed for Portsmouth, thinking his destination was Kingston. On coming into the harbor he did not follow the range lights and got into trouble. She has 39,000 bushels of wheat on board.
