Crawford's wharf: schooner Tradewind cleared for Oswego.

Garden Island: steamer India from Sodus Point with timber.

Swift's wharf: steamers Kingston and North King down; Spartan from Hamilton; Rideau Queen to and Rideau King from Smith's Falls.

M.T. company wharf: S.S. Fairmount and two consorts due today from Chicago with 185,000 bushels of corn; tug Thomson up with five light barges and cleared for Charlotte and Oswego with three to load coal.

The Richelieu & Ontario Navigation company not having been able to secure the services of a company to get the steamer Carolina off the rocks near Tadousac, will undertake the work itself. The steamer Algerian will go down and the work of pulling the steamer off will be carried out under the direction of Capt. Johnston, chief engineer of the company. No effort will be made to remove the steamer until flood tide, which occurs between Sept. 12th and 15th.

Capt. Allen, of the steamer America, points out that the temporary buoys placed in the channel at the foot of Wolfe Island, while the dredge was working, have been taken away. This should not have been done until new ones were ready to replace them. The channel is really dangerous for deep draught boats whose captains do not know the place well. It is all right for the Folger captains, also those of R. & O. company and others who constantly pass through, but there are others to be considered.

Folgers Will Appeal - action was recently decided in favor of Visger company, about having right of using docks in St. Lawrence river.
