The schooner Metzner cleared for Consecon.

The tug Thomson cleared for Oswego with two barges to load coal.

On Monday, the steamer New Island Wanderer will begin regular two trips a day to Cape Vincent.

The tug Dauntless cleared from Portsmouth with two light barges for Fairhaven to load coal.

The schooners Maggie L., Granger and Laura D. arrived at Richardsons' elevator with grain, from bay ports.

The steamer Pierrepont has begun her Gananoque trips, which she will make on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

The steamer America has been removed to the waterwork's wharf to be painted. The steamer New York has been brought down to the ferry wharf.

Last year's high water record at Charlotte, N.Y., is surpassed for old Ontario this year by one foot. The lake is now the highest it has been for twelve years and the waterfront presents a strange appearance to one who remembers the long beach and gentle slope. Now there is no beach and the waves are awash with the board walk. At several places much damage has been done, especially at the east and west ends of the beach.

p.6 Full of Heavy Ice - Port Huron, Mich. - St. Clair River and south part of Lake Huron packed by heavy ice; steamer Houghton fast in ice eight miles above Fort Gratiot lighthouse; ice will probably remove buoys and stakes in St. Clair just placed by steamer Marigold.

Incidents of the Day - The steamer Rideau King will make her first trip on Monday. T.J. O'Brien, who has resigned his position in Swift's office, will be purser on this boat for the summer.

The steamer Spartan was expected to arrive at Swift's wharf this afternoon between four and five o'clock. She will be the first steamer of the R. & O. N. Co. line to touch here this season.
