The sloop Maggie L. is at J. Richardson & Sons' elevator with oats and peas from Howe Island.

The schooner Balleau (sic - Ballou ), from bay ports, arrived at Jas. Richardson & Sons' elevator this morning with a cargo of rye.

A new bowsprit is being placed in the schooner Queen of the Lakes. When the work is completed she will clear for Charlotte to load coal for this port.

The prop. Glengarry and consort Minnedosa arrived last night from Fort William, with 85,000 bushels of wheat. They returned west today for another cargo, which will probably be their last this season.

The str. Islander went into commission this year on April 22nd, and remained in service nearly twenty-eight weeks. During this long period of continuous running she has lost no time nor had a single accident.

The barge A.B. Davidson, in tow of the tug St. Dennis, struck a rock near St. Ann's, Lachine Lake, last night and rolled over. The pilot on the tug, in endeavoring to find the guiding light which another boat obscured, got out of the channel, hence the accident.

The Owen Sound Released - A telegram was received last night to the effect that the prop. Owen Sound had been released and taken to Tobermorey harbor. Her cargo of grain is completely destroyed. John Donnelly jr. left last night to look after the cargo on behalf of the insurance company that holds a risk on it. The steamer's hull is not badly damaged and she will be taken to Midland for repairs. The telegram stated further that the wreckers had gone out after the schooner Worts and it was expected she would be released today.
