Swift's wharf: steamer Hamilton up last night.

The schooner Clara Youell arrived at Swift's wharf from Oswego today.

The schooner Two Brothers, from Oswego with coal, is at Anglin's wharf.

Craig's wharf: steamers Ocean down yesterday afternoon; Persia down today.

The steamers Corsican and Spartan, of the R. & O. line, will go into winter quarters in Toronto on Saturday, and the Hamilton of the same line will lie up at Montreal.

Incidents of the Day - The opening up of the Wolfe Island canal, which is a short cut to Cape Vincent, is looked forward to with interest, not only by the islanders, but also the people of Kingston and Cape Vincent. Two civil engineers are here from Ottawa, engaged in making a survey of the canal, and this looks very much like business. Owing to the winter weather having set in, active operation will not be commenced until the spring.

p.7 Black River Breezes - ....The majority of the apples have been hauled to McDonnell's wharf where they are taken aboard by the Waterlily and Niagara....

p.8 Incidents of the Day - The schooner Queen of the Lakes, from Charlotte with coal, arrived at the locomotive works' wharf.
