Craig's wharf: steamer Alexandria up.

M.T. company elevator: tug Thomson from Charlotte with three barges with hard coal for Montreal, and cleared down.

The steamer Spartan touched at this port at noon today, bound for Toronto, where she will at once go into winter quarters. The steamer Corsican passed down last night and will return Sunday, going into winter quarters at Toronto.

The Corsican arrived at Swift's wharf Thursday night, with part of her promenade deck hanging over the port side. She had a terrible experience coming down the lake. The sea was running high, and at Presque Isle a big wave smashed into her port side and carried away part of the promenade deck. There were not many passengers on board and they were in their staterooms. The Corsican has had rather an unfortunate season.
