The schr. Annie Falconer arrived in from Charlotte this morning with a cargo of coal.

Arrival of vessels: Str. Persia, Hamilton; str. Corsican, Toronto; str. Bon Voyage, Charlotte; str. Hamilton, Hamilton; str. Spartan, Montreal.

McKay Bros., owners, and the underwriters having risks on the str. St.Magnus, have made a statement, and the owners will take the wreck and rebuild her for a freight boat. She will be towed to Port Dalhousie from Cleveland where the work will be done.

On Saturday the str. Antelope had the misfortune to break one of the buckets of her wheel while coming out of Poole's Resort dock. She struck a rock which has always been well covered but on that day was dangerous because of the very low water. By careful work the boat was finally landed at Gananoque and a new wheel added.
