The str. Islander will commence her regular trips among the islands on Tuesday.

Temporary repairs have been made on the Cornwall canal and the waiting vessels were locked through on Sunday.

The Welland Canal was opened for the locking of boats until six o'clock, Sunday morning, and from nine o'clock Sunday evening. This plan will continue for the remainder of season.

Passed Port Colborne: Str. Flint and barges; schr. Emerald, Toledo to Garden Island, timber; Kate Butteroni, Chicago to Kingston, corn; Arabian, Duluth to Montreal, general cargo.

General Paragraphs: The str. Algerian came up from Montreal today. Capt. Dunlop said that passenger traffic on the water opened well. He says the water in the St. Lawrence river is very low and if it does not raise it will not be safe for boats drawing much water to go into inland docks.

R. Charlton, of the locomotive works, who was superintending the iron work in connection with the repairing of the S.S. Campana at Montreal, returned to the city on Saturday.
