Capt. James Allen, of the steamer New Island Wanderer, reports that the buoy at the Narrows, near Gananoque, is missing. Mariners are inconvenienced.

M.T. company wharf: S.S. Westmount cleared for Manitowoc to load oats for Kingston; S.S. Rosemount and consorts cleared for Oswego to load coal for Fort William; steamer Advance, Montreal to Fort William, calls tomorrow; tug Emerson cleared down with three grain-laden barges; tug Hall up tomorrow with three light barges.

The steamer Dorothy is still off the government dry-dock, much to the discomfort of many people residing in that district. The heavy box which has been built to encase the steamer's stern was completed today, and it was expected that it would be put in place by tonight. The water will then be pumped out of the box, and work on replacing the broken wheel pushed as rapidly as possible. Capt. Thomas Donnelly said this morning that he was unable to say how long the repairs would take, as the work was not the kind to be hurried through.
