Craig's wharf: steamer Ocean from Montreal; steamer Varuna from Picton.

The steamer Ezra Cornell has entered the government dry dock to receive general repairs.

Mr. Beaupre has the contract for making repairs to the long pier at Portsmouth. It has sunk at the outer end.

Reeve Fisher, of Portsmouth, is having a steam outfit put in his yacht so that he can use steam or sail as desired.

Swift's wharf: steamer Caspian from Hamilton; steamer Toronto down and up; steamer Rideau Queen cleared for Ottawa.



The temporary span which is being erected on the Bay of Quinte bridge in place of the one knocked off by the steamer Corsican will be completed on Friday night of this week, and traffic will be resumed on Saturday next. The expense in connection with the repairs has been enormous, it costing the Richelieu & Ontario Navigation company a thousand dollars to take the wrecked span from the water and place it on the shore. It is expected that three months will elapse before the bridge is in its former condition. The temporary span is built on spiles which had to be brought from Quebec. The expense of all the repairs will likely exceed $6,000.
