Craig's wharf: steamer Persia down.

The steamer Pierrepont is on the Cape Vincent route today.

The schooner Acacia, from Charlotte with coal, is at Garden Island.

Richardsons' wharf: steambarge Owen cleared for Sodus with feldspar.

The steambarge King Ben arrived from Montreal with a general cargo.

M.T. company elevator: tug Thomson arrived up with three light barges, and cleared down with four, grain-laden.

The number of sailors on the lakes are far short of the demand and the rate of wages has greatly increased in consequence.

The schooner Laura D. brought to Richardsons' elevator today the first fall grain of the season. It had oats from Bay ports.

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