Crawford's wharf: schooner Voges cleared for Oswego.

The government tug Reserve took on coal at Craig's this morning.

The sloop Granger unloaded hay at the Grand Trunk wharf today.

Craig's wharf: steamers Waterlily and Alexandria down; tug Shanly down from Ottawa.

Swift's wharf: steamers Kingston down and up; Caspian down and up; Hamilton up; Rideau King down tonight.

The steamer W.B. Matthews with 180,000 bushels of wheat was unloaded in twenty-three and a half hours at the Goderich one-leg elevator. This beats the Matthews best time in a Buffalo two-leg elevator by two and a half hours.

The Engineer Resigned

There were some angry Wolfe Islanders in town last night, because they couldn't get across on the ferry boat Fawcett. The machinery of this steamer was not working to the satisfaction of the engineer, who resigned his position after the Monday morning trip. William Dunigan acted as engineer on the afternoon trip, but could not give his services in the evening, so the Fawcett remained at the Clarence street wharf all night, to the annoyance of some passengers, one of whom had a team of horses. This morning the Fawcett was again on her route.
