Craig's wharf: steamer Persia from Toronto.

Richardsons' elevator: sloop Granger from bay ports.

The sloop Two Brothers, from Deseronto, unloaded wood at Rathbun's wharf, Grove Inn.

The Calvin company's new barge will be launched at Garden Island tomorrow afternoon.

The steambarge Chub is carrying coal from Oswego to Napanee, and the schooner Maggie L. to Glenora.

Swift's wharf: steamers North King from Charlotte; Hamilton from Hamilton; Rideau Queen from Ottawa.

M.T. company elevator: tug Thomson arrived from Oswego with two coal laden barges, and cleared for Charlotte with two barges; tug Hall cleared with four laden barges for Montreal.

The steamer Kingston was in port this morning with her largest crowd of the season. Steward Fred Hepburn says his chef, Freeman Howley, was not among the men who deserted him on the first trip.

The wrecking steamer Donnelly and steam pumps left last night for Six Town Point, near Henderson Harbor, to release the steambarge Alberta, ashore there. It is not known here what condition the stranded steamer is in.

The Bolivia shoal buoy has not yet been replaced, and the danger to vessels is great. Captains have to be continually on the lookout. All that floats over the shoal appears to be a whiskey bottle, and that is more apt to entice a vessel than to scare it away. Has Capt. Donnelly not the contract for placing these buoys in position? Bolivia shoal is midway between Cedar Island and Long Island park.

Recovering Articles - A Montreal diver at present in the city is using his time to good advantage by diving along the harbor front and bringing from the bottom various lost articles. This morning he recovered an iron barrow at Richardson's wharf, and received $1.50 in compensation.
