The schooner Queen of the Lakes left Charlotte today with 500 tons of coal for Booth & Co.

The S.S. Rosemount has made her last trip this season. For the present her cargo of wheat will remain in her.

The K. & M. forwarding company's schooner Kildonan entered the government graving dock this morning for repairs.

The sloop H.M. Ballou discharged 2,400 bushels of wheat at J. Richardson's elevator today and left for Belleville to enter winter quarters.

The schooner Fleetwing arrived today from Charlotte with a cargo of coal for Swift & Co. She will be discharged at once, and if it is possible she will make two more trips across the lake for coal.

The schooner Fabiola is at the knitting mill completing the discharge of her cargo. Instead of going into winter quarters, as was expected, she has been chartered to carry two more cargoes of coal from Charlotte for James Swift & Co.


The Passing Of The Yantic.

Ogdensburg, Nov. 30th - The United States training ship Yantic arrived in the Iroquois canal, about twenty miles below here, Monday afternoon. The combined power of seven tugs was required to bring her up through the swift water around Farran's Point. Owing to the gale, locking through the Canadian canals has ceased, and the Yantic will not arrive here until today. The tug Boscobel, of Bay City, Mich., is here to tow the Yantic direct to Detroit. A barge with the spars, rigging, boats, etc., of the Yantic is in port awaiting her arrival.

All Home By Saturday.

On Saturday all the K. & M. Forwarding company's fleet will have arrived at Portsmouth for the winter. The company has had a very successful season, and carried millions of bushels of grain without damaging one bushel. This is a creditable record, and speaks well of the efficiency of the management.

Snips - The tug Reginald left Valleyfield this morning on her way to Portsmouth with five barges.
