Captain Savage has wintered the schooner William Jamieson in Picton harbor.

Swift's wharf: S.S. Neepawah, for coal, up to Fort William; steamer Aletha, bay ports.

M.T. company elevator: steamer Turret Crown from Fort William with 89,000 bushels of wheat.

Local marine men do not expect to see the schooner Mary again. They are of opinion that she sank.

The steamer Aberdeen with the tow Rob Roy passed down, last night, the latter with a cargo of 800 tons.

The steamer Cresco, which has been lying on her beam end full of water at Ogdensburg, was pumped out Saturday.

While working on a barge at Ogdensburg, George Harris tripped and fell into the hold. He was seriously injured.

The steamer Alexandria passed down, Monday night, on her last trip of the season. She was so heavily laden, she was unable to carry any freight out of Kingston. On her return to Picton, she will be hauled out for the winter. A steam gear for the rudder is to be installed.

p.8 The steamer William Johnston, of the Calvin company, is in Davis' dry dock to be re-planked.
