Swift's wharf: the steamer Spartan, from Hamilton to Montreal.

Craig's wharf: steamer Melbourne from Melbourne westward; steamer Shanley and barge from Ottawa.

The steamer Bannockburn and consorts, after discharing 160,000 bushels of wheat at the M.T. company's elevator, will clear tonight for Fort William. The steamer Arabian and schooner Carthagenia, due yesterday, are expected to arrive tonight.

p.6 The Richelieu in Port - The steamer Richelieu was brought into the harbor last evening lashed between the schooner Grantham and a barge. She was suspended on chains with her upper works, or what remained of them, above water. Near shoal tower the Richelieu grounded, but after being lifted a foot or two by the aid of hydraulic pumps, she was floated off and was towed into the slip at the foot of Barrack street, where she will be further raised and then pumped out. It is thought that by Saturday night she will be entirely afloat. It is said that part of her main deck aft is missing.
