The schooner Acacia cleared with feldspar for Sodus.

Richardsons' elevator: steamer Erin and consort from Fort William with wheat.

One of the M.T. company's barges is receiving repairs in Davis' dry dock. The steambarge King Ben is awaiting to enter for an overhauling.

Swift's wharf: steamers Toronto and Caspian down; Corsican up tonight; Rideau Queen from Smith's Falls; Rideau King cleared for Smith's Falls.

The steamer St. Lawrence, Henry Folger says, will be in commission on Saturday. It was lucky for the company that the steamer Jessie Bain was just completed when the accident to the St. Lawrence occurred. It has helped them out materially.

The steamer Toronto in backing out from Swift's wharf early this morning struck forcibly against the outer end, tearing away the upper beams of the wharf. The wind was so heavy that landing or clearing was very difficult. No damage was done to the steamer.

Repairs to the steambarge Clinton, of Toronto, on the ways at Trenton, have been discontinued. Her consort, the Grimsby, is lying here. The Clinton is the boat that Hull Inspector Davis had seized for carrying a cargo without his certificate. She was found to be in bad condition when hauled out, just as the inspector claimed she was.
