The schr. Kate, light, cleared for Oswego this morning.

The schr. Pilot cleared this morning for Glenora with a cargo of coal.

Connolly's big dredge is now en route for St. John, N.B., from Quebec.

The schr. Nellie Hunter arrived today from Oswego with 300 tons of coal.

The schr. Cornelia, Oswego, is at R. Crawford's wharf with 200 tons of coal.

The tug Active with five grain laden barges cleared for Montreal last night.

Called at Craig & Co.'s wharf: str. Alexandria, Montreal; str. Melbourne, Montreal.

The schr. Acacia, after unloading part of her cargo at Collins Bay, arrived in this port this morning.

The str. King Ben is loading 8,000 bushels of peas at Richardson & Sons' elevator for Montreal.

The schr. Queen of the Lakes will probably tow with the prop. St. Andrew this trip to the great lakes.

The sloops Laura D. and Madcap are in port with oats for Richardson & Sons. They are from bay ports.

The str. Germanic and consort Hutcheson, after discharging at the M.T. Co.'s elevators, cleared, last night, for Oswego to load coal for upper lake ports.

The str. Arizona had her machinery repaired here and last night cleared for Prescott to discharge her cargo. Her consort, Plymouth, is lying at anchor awaiting her return.

The str. St. Andrew, Fort William, is discharging 37,000 bushels of wheat at the K. & M. F. Co.'s elevators, Portsmouth. The wheat is consigned to James Richardson & Sons.

Capt. Taylor and W. Power were the surveyors on the cargo of the prop. Germanic. They found 800 bushels of damaged grain, and decided that the vessel was responsible.

At Prescott, the other day, the authorities at the elevator did not hold a survey on the damaged grain in the prop. White and Faunt, and the consequence is the insurance company is stuck for the grain. Had a survey been held the boat may have been responsible.

The str. Hamilton arrived about seven o'clock this morning and laid here for a couple of hours, during which time Capt. Thomas Donnelly, government inspector of hulls, examined the boat's bottom. He went down in a diver's suit and found that the boat was all right to continue on her season's work. She had a slight leak, but this did not amount to much. Upon laying up the Hamilton will probably be dry-docked.
