The schr. Wawanosh, Kingston to Dalhousie, light, arrived at the last named port last night.

The sloop Maggie L. is loading 2,000 bushels of wheat at Richardson & Sons' elevator for Picton.

The str. Glengarry and consorts, Fort William, wheat laden, are expected to arrive here tonight.

The tug Petrel, with a long raft, consigned to Quebec by the Collins Bay rafting company, passed down this morning.

Marine matters along the harbor front are at a standstill. At this season of the year when everything should be brisk and bustling, the stillness of trade is oppressing.

Personal Mention - Ald. James Stewart arrived home on the tug Reginald this morning after a week spent in raising the barge Bismarck, sunk in the Cornwall canal.
