Swift's wharf: steamers Rideau King from Ottawa; Spartan from Hamilton.

M.T. company elevator: schooner Flora Carveth from Oshawa with 15,000 bushels of barley.

Richardsons' elevator: steambarge Alberta and schooner Two Brothers from bay ports with grain.

The tug Mary, of Cardinal, was in port on Thursday, en route to Toronto, to take east a large government tug.

May Lay Up Here - A citizen in touch with matters connected with the R. & O. N. company, stated Thursday that next year the company would have either the steamer Kingston or Toronto winter here, so that when daily trips are resumed between Toronto and Prescott, a steamer could be started from each end of the line when so desired. It was thought that this system would have been tried here this season, but owing to the extra cost of having a steamer make a round trip between Kingston and Toronto, the scheme was abandoned.

Repairing Marine Railway - The Kingston and Montreal Forwarding company has a force of men at work repairing the marine railway in its shipyard in Portsmouth. Divers are repairing the ways under water. This winter the company's barges and tugs will be repaired at the Portsmouth yards.

Personal Mention - Capt. Andrew Dunlop, of the R. & O. N. company's steamer Bohemian, returned to this city this morning after a successful season, plying between Prescott and Montreal. Capt. Dunlop looks hale and hearty after his arduous season of duty, but lost no time in buckling into work again this morning.
