Craig's wharf: steamer Persia from Toronto; Cuba from Montreal.

The schooner St. Louis, from upper lake ports, is unloading timber at Garden Island.

The big steamer Chippewa, in the government dry dock for some time past, left this morning for Toronto.

Crawford's wharf: schooner New Dominion, from Charlotte with coal; schooner Fleetwing cleared for Oswego.

Swift's wharf: schooner Falconer, from Charlotte with coal; steamer Hamilton, from Hamilton; steamer Toronto from Toronto on her first trip of the season.

The steamer Varuna, of Belleville, is meeting with considerable ill-luck this season. Only a short time ago her wheel was broken and was repaired at considerable cost. Monday evening she struck a sunken log in the bay and again broke her wheel.

The propellor Ocean ran into and smashed No. 2 gate in the Lachine canal on Tuesday and the water carried away No. 1 gate. The propeller was washed out into the harbor and damaged by collision with the Allan liner Parisian. The impetus of the water stranded the steamer Algerian, moored at her own dock. The barge Davie, of the Canada Atantic fleet, had a narrow escape, for she had just got into No. 2 lock, with the gates closed, when the accident happened.
