p.6 The sloop Volunteer cleared this afternoon for Cape Vincent with a cargo of lumber.


The schooner Pilot cleared this morning for Deseronto.

The schooner Fabiola cleared today for Oswego to load coal for this port.

The tug Thomson cleared last night with four grain laden barges for Montreal.

Capt. Willard Stevens has shipped as mate on the schooner Melrose, consort of the steamer Bannockburn.

The tug Peter Smith, the splendid craft designed for use on the Atlantic coast, and which was in port here during the past few days, cleared this morning for Cape Breton.

It is likely the steamers Bannockburn and Rosemount, without consorts, will make one more round trip between Fort William and Kingston after completing the trip they are now engaged on.

The steamer Hamilton, Montreal to Hamilton, passed up last evening with a heavy freight list. The steamer will continue to run between those two ports just as long as there is freight for her to carry and ice does not interfere with navigation.
