The steamer America today carried a cargo of hay from Wolfe Island to Gananoque.

The schooner Queen of the Lake cleared from Richardsons' with feldspar for Sodus.

The steambarge King Ben cleared for Oswego to load hard coal for Napanee. She will receive freight of $1.25 a ton.

The tug Frontenac was nearly an hour in coming from Garden Island to the city this morning, owing to the dense fog.

The steamer Toledo, which entered the government dry-dock yesterday, had to be floated out again, as she did not set evenly on the keel blocks. She re-entered the dock this morning.

The schooner Neelon, from Oswego with hard coal for Swift & Co., suffered no material damage through leakage. She was somewhat overloaded, and the water came in from above. It was pumped out, and the vessel arrived here Wednesday afternoon. Both the Muskoka and Neelon are now being unloaded.

p.8 A Big Barge - Midland, Ont., Nov. 20th - The barge Agawa with 5,750 tons of Helen ore, arrived here at the Canada Iron Furnace company's dock last evening. This boat is Canadian built and one of the largest carriers on the lakes. She was launched in Collingwood the end of August this year and this is her second trip here with ore.
