Craig's wharf: steamer Niagara down with salt.

Swift's wharf: steamers Rideau King from Ottawa; Corsican from Montreal tonight.

Richardsons' elevator: schooners Wilfred from Cobourg; Laura D. and Two Brothers from bay ports.

The steamer Pierrepont took the Cape Vincent route yesterday afternoon, on account of an accident to the steamer New Island Wanderer, which resumed her route this morning.

M.T. company elevator: S.S. Bannockburn from Fort William with 75,000 bushels of wheat, and clears tonight with two barges, laden with iron ore; tug Bronson cleared for Montreal with one grain-laden barge.

Making A Big Change - Next year a big change is to be made by the Rideau Lakes Navigation company. The steamer Rideau Queen and the new steamer to be built this winter instead of starting at Kingston, will be run from Clayton, connecting with the New York Central railway. Then they will land their passengers at Smith's Falls, where there will be close train connection for Ottawa. Those desiring, will be transferred to the steamer Rideau King, which will run between Smith's Falls and Ottawa. The service will be a daily one out of Clayton and Kingston.
