The tug Fearless is having a new wheel put on at Davis' dry-dock.

The schr. Annie Falconer has not yet been chartered for another cargo of coal.

The schrs. Fleetwing from Charlotte and Folger from Oswego arrived at Swift's dock this morning.

The water is lower in the St. Lawrence this year than it was last. Barges are continually striking the bottom.

The prop. Hill arrived at the M.T. Co.'s dock this morning. She comes from Chicago and has 42,000 bushels of corn.

The M.T. Co.'s new vessel, to be christened "Dunmore," will be launched some time this fall. The capacity of the Dunmore will be 50,000 bushels of grain. She is about the same size as the schr. Winnipeg, launched last year. She is a fine looking boat and her model is perfect. Her deck plank is of British Columbia pine, the very best material for this purpose. The wood cost $140 a car load in British Columbia, the freight to Kingston amounted to $280, just double the cost.

p.4 Napanee, Oct. 23rd - ....The schr. Delaware is in the river. The captain reports times as very dull in the freight trade....
