p.1 Wants A Chart Made - An old vessel captain stated this morning that if the department of marine would have a survey of the harbor made, showing the location of all the shoals, and have the same published so that all vessel captains could procure a copy, it would be of more service than any improvement yet made to the harbor.



The str. North King will make her last trip of the season on Sunday next.

All the Richelieu & Ontario Navigation Co's boats except the Hamilton are laid up in winter quarters.

The steamer Bannockburn entered the canal this morning. She will arrive here some time tomorrow night if the weather remains favorable.

The schooner Fabiola arrived last night from Charlotte with coal for Folger Bros. She had a good run over with a stiff breeze behind her.

The schooner Katie Eccles, which started up the lake for Cobourg yesterday, was obliged to run back and seek shelter in the harbor last night. She started up again this morning.
