The sloop Laura D. is loading wheat at Richardson's elevator for Deseronto.

The tug Bronson with six grain laden barges, cleared for Montreal this morning.

This morning the schr. Nellie Hunter cleared for Picton to go into winter quarters.

The sloop Pilot cleared this morning for Napanee to load grain for Richardson Bros.

The barge Wheat Bin is being loaded with peas at Richardson's elevator for Montreal.

The schr. Annie Falconer, for Charlotte, and Delaware, for Oswego, cleared light this morning to load coal for this port.

Already vessel owners are preparing to put their craft into winter quarters. The season has been a quiet one, which, with the lowness of freight rates, made their earnings very small.

Nowhere along the harbor front is the lowness of the water more apparent than in the slip at the foot of Princess street. More than half the wharves forming the slip cannot be used, as the water has left the bed of the slip exposed.
