The steamer Advance, which unloaded wheat at the M.T. company elevator yesterday, is ready to clear for Toronto as soon as the weather outside moderates.

The cargo of coal in the Jessie Drummond, wrecked at Cobourg, has been rescued. The boat is a complete wreck, split from stem to stern.

The government steamer Scout, in charge of Capt. Allison, is picking up the buoys in the St. Lawrence, and is on her way to Kingston to lay up for the winter.

The S.S. Rosemount, from Fort William with 80,000 bushels of wheat, reached the M.T. company elevator yesterday afternoon. She is now discharged, and ready for her winter berth.

Since Monday evening, the steamer Glengarry and consort Augustus, bound for Toronto with coal, have been lying in shelter at Macdonald's cove, above Amherst Island. They were expected to clear again today.

Five coal-laden vessels are waiting an opportune moment to make a dash across the lake from Oswego to Kingston. Three are for R. Crawford, one for the Rathbun Co., and one for Swift & Co. They have been detained by bad weather.
