Craig's wharf: steamer Waterlily up last night; propellor Cuba up tonight.

A raft was started last night by the Calvin company, from Garden Island, for Quebec, towed by the tug Parthia.

Swift's wharf: Picton up last night; steamer Wahcondah, Fort William, down this morning; steamer Aletha, bay ports.

The steamer City of Belleville, a transfer boat, from Prescott, laid in port last night. She came to the city to have some repairs made.

Early this morning, the steamer Donnelly and lighterer, Grantham, went up to the schooner Annandale, to try and release her from the Charity Shoal

M.T. company wharf: S.S. Rosemount and consort from Fort William with 150,000 bushels of wheat; S.S. Westmount and consorts cleared for Fort William; tug Emerson from Cape Vincent with a light barge; tug Glide up with two barges and cleared down with four grain-laden barges.

A short time ago it was given out that the steamer Argyle would take the steamer Turbinia's route between Toronto and Hamilton, this fall, when the latter boat left for her winter in Cuban waters. The deal, however, is off owing to the fact that the Argyle wanted to be paid a stated amount, but the Turbinia would only agree to a percentage on the traffic. The steamer Argyle will go into winter quarters at Portsmouth.

The Annandale A Loss.

When the steamer Donnelly reached the schooner Annandale, on Charity Shoal this morning, it was found that the vessel was too far gone to release. The heavy seas pounding upon her for the past two days left her in a shaky condition, and there seems no hope of saving her. Her cargo of coal will likely be loaded into lighter Grantham, and the vessel itself stripped.

p.8 To Rescue Sunken Coal - There are perhaps 800 tons of coal sunk alongside the K.& P. railway spile wharf, for years pieces having dropped from vessels being unloaded. This sunken coal is now to be raised by W. Smith, who, it is understood, has contracted to do the work for half the coal rescued.

To Call A Halt - to poaching habits of American fishing tugs in Canadian waters; American revenue cutter Morrill to cruise Lake Erie checking on fishing boats.
