The prop. Tilley and consort had 62,000 bushels of wheat all told and the str. Niagara 24,000 bushels.
Despatches this morning state that a heavy snow storm is raging on Lake Superior. The prop. Glengarry and barge Minnedosa left the Soo yesterday going up. It is thought, however, she will reach Michipicoten Island all right, where there is good shelter.
The str. James Swift has not been able to run up to Kingston for the past month. The water in the canal will not allow her. It is altogether likely that the Swift will have to go around by the Grenville canal and up the St. Lawrence to reach Kingston to lay up.
