The schr. Collier will finish the grain carrying trade, after which she will go into winter quarters at Deseronto.

The tug Thomson arrived from Montreal yesterday, with seven light and cleared again with three grain laden barges.

The str. Bannockburn arrived from Fort William at ten o'clock last night, with 66,000 bushels of wheat. She was discharged without loss of time and cleared this morning at six o'clock, light, for another cargo. It is expected the steamer will make three trips more between Fort William and this port.

The schr. S.H. Dunn has gone into winter quarters after a successful season, having made eight round trips between Toledo and Garden Island. Capt. James Dix, who has sailed the Dunn for some years past, may feel proud of his record. The schooner was not delayed a day during the season, and finishes another year's work without the outlay of a dollar for repairs from accidents.

She coaled here for Toledo.
