Crawford's wharf: schooners Tradewind, from Charlotte, and Annandale, from Sodus, with coal.

The freight steamer John Randall loaded freight at the G.T.R. wharf this morning for Rideau ports.

The steamer America went to Gananoque this morning to take an excursion out of there this afternoon.

At Swift's wharf: steamers Hamilton down, Kingston down and up today; Rideau King from Ottawa tonight.

M.T. company wharf: tug Bronson down with three grain laden barges; tug Emerson cleared for Toronto with a coal-laden barge.

Richardsons' wharf: steamer Rosedale from Fort William with wheat; schooners Maggie L. and Laura D. from bay ports with grain; schooner Queen of the Lakes cleared for Sodus with feldspar.

The repairs to the steamer Dorothy, at the government dry-dock, were nearing completion today. The broken wheel was removed this morning and work on fitting the new one immediately commenced. It was expected that the Dorothy will leave tonight or tomorrow.

Brockville Times: The steamer Toronto made a great run from Kingston to Brockville this morning in the fog. Leaving the former city on time she pulled into the C.P.R. dock only a few minutes late which reflects the highest credit on the seamanship of Capt. Booth, who was on the bridge all the way.
