The prop. Magnet reported in from Montreal today.

The schr. Emery is being rigged out with new sails at Swift's dock. She will clear for Toronto.

The str. D.D. Calvin will be laid up at Garden Island, having completed her work for the season.

The prop. Glengarry picked up the Minnedosa on Lake Erie yesterday and was reported in the Detroit river last night.

Today the schr. Ella Murton, Capt. Saunders, cleared for Deseronto to load cedar posts for Charlotte. The schooner will bring coal back to Kingston.

The prop. Bannockburn will be at the M.T. Co.'s dock today. She left Port Dalhousie in the face of a strong head wind. This steamer came right through from Fort William with two barges during the heavy winds while other vessels were laid up all along the line. The Bannockburn stops for nothing.

The London Advertiser says: "Friday night's storm was one of the worst at Port Stanley for many years. It is expected that the fishermen will suffer great loss from having nets torn all to pieces. On Saturday morning the large steambarge Glengarry made port after much difficulty. Nearly all the village people were on the wharves watching her. The boat was on her way from Kingston for Fort William, and had in tow the large schooner Minnedosa, which she was forced to abandon after having held to her all night. The Minnedosa is now at anchor thirty miles above port. They were going to Fort William for grain for the Montreal transportation company."

General Paragraphs - The tug Petrel has returned from up the lake, where she went to release the str. Lewiston. When the tug got there the steamer had proceeded on her way, having got off by her own efforts.
