M.T. company wharf: tug Emerson up with three light barges.

Crawford's wharf: schooner Rutherford cleared for Charlotte.

Swift's wharf: steamers Corsican up last night; Toronto down and up; North King down and up; Hamilton down.

Craig's wharf: steamers Cuba up and Lake Michigan down, this morning; Alexandria up tonight.

Owing to the high wind and sea last night, the steamer North King was unable to make her trip from Charlotte to Brighton. She arrived in Kingston shortly after seven o'clock this morning and proceeded up to Stella for passengers and freight, making her regular trip down the river after ten o'clock.

High Freight Rates Recalled - the M.T. company, 25 years ago, got 27 cents a bushel to carry wheat and corn from Chicago to Montreal; rate now is about 3 cents a bushel.
