The prop. Algonquin will clear this evening for up the lake.

The barge Toledo is on the government drydock being caulked.

The tug Bronson came up the river today with three light barges.

The tug Walker arrived in this morning from Oswego with three barges of coal.

The str. Algonquin is unloading 70,000 bushels of wheat at the M.T. Co.'s dock. She comes from Duluth.

The other day John Donnelly and a diver recovered a barrel of molasses, lost overboard from a steamer at Clayton, N.Y.

The str. James Swift leaves Ottawa today on her last trip of the season. The steamer has been much bothered by low water.

The tugs Walker and Bronson will clear tonight for Montreal with eight loaded barges between them. The coal brought over by the tug Walker for Oswego goes to Montreal and is included in this tow.

R.R. Scobell, Quebec, says lumber can be floated from any port in the vicinity of Michigan to Kingston at $3.50 per M. feet, while the charge for the short distance from Kingston to Montreal, in small barges, is $1.75 per M. feet.
