Folger's wharf: schooner Collier from Charlotte with coal.

Garden Island: steamer Calvin and consort from upper lake ports with timber.

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

The steamer Rosemount is at Fort William. She is delayed in securing her cargo on account of many boats preceding her.

The steamer Toronto will lay up earlier than the Kingston this season. Its bottom has not been scraped since its launching four years ago, and the steamer will be docked for that purpose.

M.T. company's wharf: tugs Bronson and Thomson up with seven light barges; Bronson cleared down with three barges, grain-laden, and Thomson for Charlotte and Oswego, with three light to load coal.

It has been decided to reconstruct the steamer Montreal on the hull which is said to be quite sound. It is the intention to make the boat as fine as it was in the first place, and the company expects to have it ready for the season of 1905.

The repairs made to the steamer Kingston here were only temporary, but permitted here making a couple of trips. Full repairs are now being made to the steamboat at Toronto and will be completed tomorrow afternoon, when the Kingston comes east again.

Swift's wharf: schooner Suffel from Charlotte with coal; steamers Kingston and North King down on Sunday; steamers Corsican cleared this morning for Montreal and Rideau Queen for Smith's Falls; steamer Rideau King arrives this evening from Smith's Falls.

John Donnelly arrived home yesterday after successfully raising the steambarge Parsons, which was sunk in the Cornwall canal by striking a buttment of the bridge. He delivered the damaged vessel to Montreal, saw her coal unloaded, and placed her in Tait's dry dock for repairs.
