Craig's wharf: steamer Persia up.

Swift's wharf: steamer Spartan down.

A fine large steambarge is nearing completion on the stocks at Garden Island. It will be the largest boat ever built on the island.

Richardsons' elevator: steambarges King Ben and Chub, and schooners Monitor, Maggie L., Laura D., Highland Beauty and Granger, from bay ports.

M.T. company elevator: S.S. Bannockburn and consorts cleared for Fort William; steamer Myles from Fort William with 48,000 bushels of wheat; tug Bronson cleared for Montreal with four grain-laden barges.

The steambarge Van Allen, with coal from Cleveland, grounded on the lake side of the Toronto Island on Sunday in a fog. She was pulled off by two tugs and docked to discharge her cargo. She suffered no damage.

On the way from Fort William, the steamer Erin and Danforth met with stormy weather, and the result is a large quantity of damaged grain in the Danforth, which is awaiting insurance inspection at Richardsons' elevator.
