The sloop Idlewild is at James Richardson & Sons with 1,500 bushels of rye from bay ports.

The tug Thomson and two barges, coal laden from Oswego, arrived today at the M.T. Co.'s dock.

The slips along the harbor front are nearly all clear. Vessels are beginning to seek berths for the winter.

The Damaged Cargo Sold - John Donnelly jr. arrived back from Owen Sound yesterday after having sold the cargo of damaged grain discharged by the str. Owen Sound. It was purchased by A.W. Maclean, who paid a good figure for it, considering that twelve days had elapsed since it had been wet. There were 18,000 bushels sold by the underwriters, who were represented by John Donnelly jr.

Purchased Damaged Grain - Ex-reeve J. Fisher, of Portsmouth, purchased, on Wednesday afternoon last, the cargo of the barge Augustus, consisting of 3,864 bushels of wheat, which had been damaged in the collision with the schooner Tyrone some time ago. The price paid was 23 3/4 cents per bushel.

Rochester, N.Y., Nov. 22nd - On Wednesday one vessel was wrecked on the rocks eighteen miles west of Charlotte harbor. The vessel was the William T. Greenwood, from Oswego to Toronto, carrying 325 tons of coal. The entire cargo is lost and there was no insurance. The life-saving crew saw the signals of distress and Capt. Gray and his men boarded the steam tug Proctor, and hurried to Braddock's Point, where the wreck occurred. Nothing could be done to save the ship, as it was already in shallow water. The loss is estimated to be $18,000. The captain and crew reached shore.
