Crawford's wharf: schooner Annandale cleared for Oswego.

Craig's wharf: steamers Ocean and Cuba down and Persia up on Sunday; steamer Alexandria down this evening.

The schooner Highland Beauty from Oswego, with coal consigned to the Rathbun company, Portsmouth, has arrived.

Swift's wharf: steamers Kingston, Corsican and North King down on Sunday; steamer Rideau King cleared this morning for Ottawa.

The Rideau Navigation steamers run only to Smith's Falls now, which trip is made in daylight. The C.P.R. carries the passengers from Smith's Falls to Ottawa.

Complaints have been received from the resident engineer of the department of public works to the effect that the six spar buoys placed last year to mark the limit of the cut now being made through the Blanket Shoals at the foot of Wolfe Island, a short distance east of Kingston, are repeatedly being run down and moved or lost owing to the carelessness and negligence of masters using this channel.
